  1. Chapter 46C: Leave When the Door Is Open

    October 16, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “Now that that little travelling curiosity show is over,” Lirnilalie muttered, “we can get back to business.  My papers–” “As I told you already,” LIbkazaari interrupted, “your papers aren’t here.  The only papers that are here belong to the Students here and to the school.” “Then you won’t mind if …

  2. 46B: Do More Than Blow Steam

    October 14, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie swallowed around a dry throat and watched the scene unfold.  Libkazaari stood up, watching Lirnilalie levelly. The woman, in turn, raised one eyebrow in clear doubt.  “I’ve never heard of a school project that led to students hiding, running away from adults and stealing things from rooms.” “Well as …

    Was this good news?  It was pleasant to hear that Libkazaari didn’t like Lirinlalie, and yet… “House Monitor,” she said carefully, “I am concerned that, if Lirnilalie is being treated as royalty, if we reveal these papers here, there will be no pleasant result and a great deal of trouble.” …

    “We have some ideas about what it could mean,” Enrie offered. “The fact is, it’s not signed, and that’s huge.  And it doesn’t show up in normal history books, but I found references to it in at least one aether-embedded book in the treaties section.”  That one, she’d brought the …

    Enrie stared at House Monitor Libkazaari’s door. She looked at her friends.  She swallowed around the bile in her throat and looked back at the door. “I can hear you out there.  Unless you’re here to discuss the merits of saddle-throwing positions, come in.” Enrie’s cheeks flushed and she ducked …

    They were really doing it.  They were carrying everything they had found, and they were taking it to an adult.  Enrie swallowed around a lump in her throat. “There are so many ways that this could go wrong,” she whispered.  They’d picked the route to the House Monitor’s office least …

  7. Chapter 44C: Consensus

    October 3, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Who do we take it to? turned out to be a question of some contention.  The six of them collected had at least twelve ideas of people they could take their information to, ranging from the Emperor himself to regional Governors all the way down to the upperclassmen in any …

  8. Chapter 44a: your jacket is loud…

    September 27, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie made it through the rest of their textiles class by the skin of her teeth, paying far more attention to the conversation of embedded aether than she ever had before. If they could embed it in clothing… oh, and she knew they could put it in text already, there …

    “Class,” Enrie agreed.  She took Saydrie’s offered hand, bowed to both women much as he had, and waited the half-second for Taikie to do the same before they strolled out of there. Holding Saydrie’s hand let her control the pace to that stroll; she was pretty sure if she hadn’t …

    September 16, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    The day of classes seemed to stretch on interminably.  Once they reached the end, Enrie could see what Riensin had found. She could see what else they had to do.  She could figure out who they were supposed to take this to. But first she had to get through Biology …

    “…and then Pieped suggested they could run interference.  Which is probably why there’s this very polite wall of Estyaa House colors by the doorway.  I don’t think Lady Ilonilarrona’s done with us.”  Enrie spared a glance for the nicely-composed line of purple, cyan-teal, & bright red by the main entrance, …

    They took all of their bits and pieces to a quiet lab in the back of the Philosophy classroom building.  There, in a room lit with the new safety lamps, they laid out everything they’d found so far, pages and notes.  Saydrie pulled out some fresh paper and a pen …

    They found Gianci and Taikie in the history section, holding an old tome whose bindings had crumbled with age, hidden off behind a pole in a far corner  near the books on Empress Otyeriotanerio .  The book itself was Bitrani Writings on the Early Wars, but, between two maps of …

    Enrie didn’t wait until Gianci and Taiki were gone before she started searching the shelves.  She’d been over many of these books before, but with Gianci’s new lullaby, they had a new direction to go in. Saydrie was muttering to himself as he flipped through books.  After a minute, he …

  15. Chapter 37B: Trouble Comes Finding You

    July 26, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Finding Riensin was harder than she’d hoped it would be.  He wasn’t in the dining hall, he wasn’t readily visible in the library, and he wasn’t in his dorm’s common room or in his room, although his roommates gave Enrie and Taikie quite the look — before they noticed Saydrie standing …

    Due to a *cough* scheduling error, you get two chapters today.  Please make sure you’ve read Chapter 36B first “So,” Saydrie cleared his throat.  “Sorry about that, Stable-Master Korten.  I’m not sure…” “Your friend there, that’s not an entirely unreasonable reaction.  Lirnilalie is not the sort of person you want to …

    “You three?”  Stable-master Korten smiled at them as they slipped in through the far entrance to the stable.  “And you brought friends.  I’m not going to need to clear out another stall, am I?” “Aren’t things getting a little crowded already?”  Enrie flashed him a bright smile, hoping he knew …

    July 11, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Ulunumani had fled, flinging imprecations.  Enrie wanted to feel bad about that — and in some sense, she supposed she did. Ledryie was right; she was far too casual about making enemies.  At least Taikie’d made her first enemy when he tried to kill her; Enrie seemed to make them when she …

    “All right” Riensin leaned forward.  “So you have a puzzle piece.  We need to check in Instructor… P’s office.  You found things that were of the right era there, right?” “Yes, but someone else has already ransacked his office.”  Enrie wrinkled her nose. “Do you think he noticed?” “…that’s a …

    Instructor Kaasmasik was missing from class again. Still, Enrie turned in her paper, looking Instructor Rezhtareza in the eye as she explained, “I was told to do this paper, ma’am.” “Indeed? Somehow I’m not surprised. Well, perhaps it will count as extra credit.” The instructor wasn’t smirking — wasn’t smiling at …
