    There is nothing in blood except everything ~ They met in their little hide-out after dinner.  Enrie had vanished into the library for several hours; Taikie had vanished and he didn’t know where to.  Saydrie, trying to hide from everyone who seemed to want to follow him around, had run …

    Are We Bitrani? ~ The paper – the Ilelteddez Whispers – thought there was a serious chance of a Bitrani uprising in the far south.  Saydrie read the paper three times during class – he was better at being sneaky than Taikie was, at least – and another two times …

    Good News and Bad News Look the same from a distance ~ The day was already strange enough.  Saydrie would have been content if he got through the rest of it with, perhaps, one Cevati Bitrani complaining about his lack of faith and one Calenyena student muttering about “dirty Byitties.” …

    “You can do as you please, as long as you don’t tell me what you’re doing.” They took the opportunity, once classes were over, to duck back into their new secret hiding place.  Saydrie was entirely unsurprised to find that both Taikie and Enrie had brought things to brightened it …

    Secrets Told as Lies are Nevertheless Revealed “I don’t remember them being this bad at the beginning of the year.  Have things changed, or are they just doing it more – more obviously? – than they were?” Saydrie suppressed a sigh.  Taikie would get ahold of things like this and …

    Find Friends in Valleys, Lose Them on Cliffs The whole thing had Saydrie out of sorts. He managed to get through dinner just fine, then made some excuse, before heading off to his dorm. His dorm where his roommates weren’t exactly his friends, definitely weren’t the sort he’d go to …

    Is the enemy who will not attack truly an enemy? “You know…” Taikie turned around slowly, looking at their little room.  “This place could be set up quite nicely with food. A lot of the stuff we can grab from the meal hall stores quite wand we could set up …

    Use the Right Tool For the Job They left in a bit of a hurry, not particularly frightened of the Cevati Bitrani but wanting to get some space between them before they recovered from the surprise.  Saydrie found himself chuckling as they got far enough away. “Did you really – …

    Turn Your Back on Those of False Faith He’d already had more than enough excitement for the day, probably, all added up, for his entire time at Edally.  But the day wasn’t done with Saydrie yet. They had split up for no more than a few minutes, Enrie and Taikie …

    Demand and Supply “But why does it always work?” Tairiekie was, as always when the topic came up, plaintive. “I mean, we’re in a school.” And a little bit stuck on the subject. “Somewhere, someone has to be interested in all of the amazing things that can be done with …

    There is More to Home than Recipes and Memories Saydrie was being pursued. Since they had gotten back from the palace, there had been a number of people who wanted to ask him questions. At first, he’d assumed it was because Tairiekie and Enerenarie were already busy answering questions and he, …

    Taikie was having trouble concentrating on her studies. To be entirely accurate, she was having trouble concentrating on her assigned studies. She would be in the middle of a piece on Textiles and she would look for the code woven into the strands of the fabric; she would be talking …

    The meme is here: Give me the names of two characters and I will tell you why character A loves character B.  Here is clare_dragonfly‘s second prompt: Riensin and Tairiekie. Riensin knew he was handsome. He didn’t take it as any particular virtue of his — he had the same face as …

    They’d been back at school for two weeks.  Enrie was entirely caught up on all her classes, and Taikie was back into reading ahead by at least a week.  Their Instructors had either forgiven them, or, in the case of those more nosy than fretful about academics, had stopped asking …

      “Hello there.  It has been a while, hasn’t it?  Almost an eon.”  Gianci had spent almost all of his time in the days since they returned placating his teammates and roommates, all of whom had been irked with him.  Enrie had only seen him in passing in the lounge …

    It felt strange to be back in school.  Their Instructors had all been told — well, something, at least — by House Monitor Libkazaarie — which meant that Instructor Pelnyen looked at them sideways but everyone else seemed to accept their absence with decent grace.   There were projects to …

    Happy Tienaabaa’s festival to all!  May it find you motivated to creativity and to thought.  If you are wondering, Bitrani and Calenyena spell Tienaabaa’s name differently (Tienebrah); the Bitrani pronounce that initial T-i-e-n as tee-en while the Calenyena say “Tie”. ❄️ It was nearly time for the festival, and the snow had already …

    Saydrie rescued her. “…we forget that our Emperors’ ancestors once had to undergo seven tests to be considered worthy to even be in the succession, and that our Governors and Emperor all were once kalōkāt; war-leaders, leaders who had been proven both in battle and in peace.  We forget that …

    Enrie turned to look at Gianci.  Everyone else, she noticed, was doing the same.   He cleared his throat again.  He was looking over their heads, not at them. “Sometimes they tell people they can’t go back to the enclaves.  Banish them.  Some people leave on their own, sure, but …

    She needed to see what they were facing.  She held on to the wagon very tightly, pressed her body against the frame and spread her feet to give herself a wider, more stable stance.  She leaned out around the body of the wagon carefully, mindful that these people, since they …
