This is written to [personal profile] chanter_greenie's commissioned request for more of Zita and Amantia. It comes after most of the events in Addergoole: Year Nine. Thanks to [personal profile] wyste, whose character Zita is, for helping with Zita's lines.


The sun was bright. Amantia blinked up at it. She remembered what it felt like; she remembered what it looked like, but that had been years ago. She'd never thought she'd live to see a meadow again.

She flopped down into the grass, feeling the prickle of the stalks through her wetsuit. When she'd first gotten sent to the basement, she'd really believed that someone, anyone would come up with a cure for her problem soon - just a week, just a month, just a year. For the last year, she'd really expected to die any minute now. The beasts had been attacking, they were stuck.

Now, she didn't know. She was out of the basement. She was in the sun. She could - well, she already knew she couldn't run away, but getting out of the basement was the first step towards any kind of freedom at all. She could do this. Maybe she could even learn how to stop killing people.

A light breeze picked up, brushing over Amantia. She rolled up into a sitting position and smiled. With her arms outstretched, she could pretend she could feel the breeze all over her body.

"Down, Down, Down" has been posted here. It comes after the second portion of Into the History of Addergoole, and delves into the plotline of Addergoole: Year 9.

Doug was back in a war zone. They were in the bowels of Addergoole, battling creatures that would not see reason. They’d brought Agmund down with them — three of Doug’s cy’ree, two of Luke’s, and two of Agmund’s were guarding the rear, in case anything got through — but these creatures seemed impervious to Panida Workings. Just in case, they’d tried Intinn and Tlacatl. Nothing.


A Patronage of just $1/month will let you read all Patron-only posts! Check it out!

Edit: This is open for everyone! I was thinking that Fox Hunt was my free post for last month - and it wasn't! So Fox Hunt's requested continuation will be my Patrons-only short short fic for the month, and this is my free fic. Backwards!

First Dance, Year Nine.

Everyone seemed so into the dances here.

Back at home, Pania had not been all that big on the whole idea of school dances. Then again, back at home, there had been other things to do, other places to hang out. Here, down in Addergoole, there was the Arcade, and the dances, as far as she could tell.

Ambrus/Ambrose and Phillipa are Addergoole: Yr9 characters. Phillipa has shown up in previous stories as well; see her wiki page for details.


"You should try Keeping someone." His Mentor was gentle but insistent; he gave Ambrus-called-Ambrose this speech at the beginning of each year.

Is Thorburn just a big jerk?

Those, and other questions, such as what exactly is his Change, have yet to be fully answered in the course of the Addergoole story.

He's domineering, pushy, and sometimes a little bit weird. His nightmares are the stuff of, well, nightmares - some of which we can probably blame on his former Keeper. Maybe all of it. But he is, slowly, unbending.

Thorburn is a tall guy, and a big guy, 6 foot 5 inches tall and broad across the shoulders. His friend Basalt is wider and stronger, but Basalt is made out of rock.

Thorburn has a square chin, startlingly pale blue eyes, a perpetual 5-o'clock shadow, and skin the color of chestnuts. He wears his hair in braids down to his chin.

He dresses primarily in T-shirts and jeans, although he owns, looks good in, and sometimes enjoys wearing nice dress clothes.

Nobody has seen his Change since he got out from under the Collar. Who knows when we will?

Addergoole has a landing page here; Porter and Bel are from Addergoole: Yr9



"It's just..." Bel fluttered one hand. "Everyone assumes. It's not just because people here know my parents. It's just..." Her hand gesture took in a body and a face that were, by all objective standards, beautiful. "There's this. There's this, and I'm friendly. And people assume friendly means... friendly."

"And then you're here," Porter picked up. "Here in Addergoole, where sex is practically an obligation and the primary after-school sport, and everyone, everyone is looking to hook up."

This is a drabble of Shahin, from Addergoole: TOS, during the time of Chapter Two of Addergoole: Year 9

"...and that's why I think that interpretation is ridiculous."

Shahin would never be a brilliant student, but college - even college while juggling four children - was so much easier than Addergoole that she couldn't help but play around a bit.

Her professor was giving her the supposed-to-be-intimidating glare that she got such a kick out of. "While that's an interesting theory, Miss..."

"Mrs."

"Mrs. Morn, it fails to take into account the implications of the court case we're actually discussing."

"But those implications would not have been in place at the time of the theory's penning." Shahin smirked. Human teachers were so much fun.

"Does it seem like..." Kailani paused to grab Alistair and pull his shirt back over his head. "...like we should be listening to Regine's speech again?"

Conrad, who had his hands full trying to get Audra's socks on, just laughed. "It's not like we weren't here last year, too."

"Last year, we hardly had time to think, and we were still fresh from school. This year..." She successfully got Alistair dressed. "No, Ali, keep it on. Crissy will be here any minute."

You could, she had learned, demand things of Regine. An au pair had been her first "request."

Addergoole is a school in the faerie apocalypse universe, as well as a subsetting and the name of the web-serial set there. Teenagers sent away to boarding school learn that, not only is the school not what they expected, but neither they nor their parents are either. Fifty years later, they struggle to continue existing in the post-apoc world that wants nothing to do with their ilk.

Stories span several generations and over 50 years of students in the school.

The new students to the Addergoole School knew it wasn’t going to be an ordinary boarding school from the start: it was in the middle of nowhere, and nobody’s parents were telling them anything. When it turned out to be in a bunker, hidden under an old barn in a cornfield, some of them started to think that this was less “a little weird” and more “freaky and a bit scary.” And that was just the first day.

Follow the ninth year of students through fifty-two weeks in their new school. Step into this strange and sometimes dark world with a vibrant and broad cast, and learn with them just how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

52 19 Days To 52 Weeks



For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today I present Jovanna and Aeowyn, best known so far as Ahouva's friends.

Jovanna is a tall, slender girl with a dancer's body, tight-muscled and lean, with hardly any chest to speak of; she camouflages this with ruffled shirts. She likes ruffles all around, tiered skirts and flounced hems and sleeves.

Her skin is deep brown, her hair long, curly, and prone to frizzing. Her eyes are silver-grey, and her makeup is well-done but often a bit heavy-handed. She's a follower, socially, quiet unless spoken to and often a wall-flower.

Aeowyn is a leader to Jovanna's follower, outgoing and sharp-tongued. Short, tiny, and blonde (Addergoole has a surplus of tiny blondes!) Her hair is shoulder-length and smooth platinum blonde; she has bright blue eyes and pale skin. She and Jovanna commiserate over their lack of noticeable chests.

She likes whatever's in fashion for clothes, but prefers things that are boyish - pants rather than skirts, button-down shirts. Hats. Aeowyn loves hats.

Neither have innate powers determined yet. Jovanna's Change is pika-related; Aeowyn's is snake-related

They appear in the following stories:

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related (almost) every day.

This evening I present: Belfreja!
And a prototype of my Cast Page Character Summaries for perusal and suggestion:

Belfreja is a sweet, gorgeous woman, Masked or Unmasked; her Change gives her the ram horns that are both her parents' legacy.

This tall, broad-shouldered girl, her Viking ancestors clear in her appearance, has a fondness for foreign languages, foreign food, and classic everything.

She has appeared in the story Mission to Paris, which is set several years after Addergoole Year 9.

I offer her up to your questions today!

Today I introduce Brydan!

Brydan is a vivacious strawberry blonde woman in denim short shorts and a pink tank top. Brydan is cheerful, friendly, a "sexual healer." As if to highlight her lightness to her half-sister Ivette's dark, Brydan has tiny, flightless golden-yellow feathered wings, and a tiny tail of matching feathers.

In her last year at Addergoole, she has remained sweet and cheerful throughout. She is often the cy'Linden other cy'Lindens send to talk to other cy'rees, because she is least likely to offend.

And today she's here to answer your questions!

This evening I present: Miryam!
And a prototype of my Cast Page Character Summaries for perusal and suggestion:


Miryam is a tiny, lovely fairy; Masked, she's a petite, pixyish girl with long brown hair, warm cafe-au-lait skin, and startlingly green eyes. Unmasked, she's even more petite and more pixieish, adding green wings and antennae.

Although she originated as a roleplay character, as did Cynara, she has yet to have her own story. In Year Nine, she is the hapless Ninth Cohort in a crew with such lovely people as Kendon, Ahouva's Keeper.

I offer her up to your questions today!

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related (almost) every day.

Today I present to you Garfunkle!

Garfunkle has appeared in Trojan Gift, Prickly, and In the Infirmary.

Gar is a solemn-faced teen of primarily Irish ancestry before his change, with pale ginger hair and dark blue-green eyes, a complexion prone to freckling and a very stubborn chin. He stands about 5’10” tall, with a bit of muscle on him, just enough to avoid being lanky or lean; he’s been trying to bulk out. He’ll have a nice chest and six-pack if he ever works for it. He keeps his hair cut very short to avoid the curl, and hasn’t started to grow in real facial hair yet.

He’s prone to wearing a hoodie over sarcastic-saying T-shirts and whatever jeans appear to fit; he wears combat boots unlaced and likes to wear a baseball cap when he’s not wearing a hoodie (and sometimes when he is).

Ask him anything!

What is Addergoole?

Good question!

Addergoole is the title of two web serialized stories, the completed Addergoole set in the 5th year of the school, and the upcoming Addergoole Year Nine, set in, yes, the 9th year of the school with all-new characters.

A boarding school unlike any other, Addergoole is a story containing dark contemporary fantasy, with kink and sexual subtext, magic, violence, and a dystopian school. The incoming Ninth Cohort enters the school knowing nothing about the world they're being plunged into. Come learn with them.

The school is also Addergoole: an underground complex three stories deep, with secrets down every hallway. Hidden under the South Dakota wheatfields, the Addergoole School is invitation-only, and invitations go only to students who are already, all unknowing, part of the Addergoole Project.

The Addergoole Project is School Director Regine Avonmorea's pet project, a century-spanning plan that underlies everything that happens in the school, named after the Addergoole Parish in Ireland (Regine explains why here). Not even her inner circle know every twist and turn of this plan.

The Ninth Cohort will step into Addergoole in 37 days! In the meantime, enjoy the countdown, read other things tagged "Addergoole," go back to the July Giraffe Call and ask for more story, or ask the characters questions. We'll all be waiting with you!

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related (almost) every day.

Today I present to you Cynara, Red Doomsday.

Cya has appeared in a number of stories, after beginning life as a roleplay character (as did several others, including Eris, Mark, and Kylie from Year 5, and Leofric, Howard, Zita, and Fran in Year 6...). My favorite pieces involving Cya were written by [personal profile] inventrix, here and here...and this piece by [livejournal.com profile] cluudle

Art of her by Inventrix is available here.

Cynara is a slender girl with some curve to her, a generous smile, freckles over most of her body, stunning green eyes and dark brown hair dyed red on top. The only child raised by a security-expert father, she spent much of her childhood moving from place to place. She's known by the end of her first year at Addergoole (Kept by the vampire, Dysmas), for her obsession with planning ahead. By the time her children come to Addergoole, years after the apocalypse, she's also know for collecting new Kept.

I encourage you to pester her with questions! Ask her anything!!

Today I present (ha) to you Noam.

Noam has appeared in Birthday Present, Presented, and Presently..

Art of him by Inventrix is available Here.

Noam is a hide-in-shadows sort of guy, a personality made difficult by the fact that he was pretty to start with and his Change, a butterfly-related mostly-skin-coloring alteration, only made him prettier. He's a quiet, shy loner with cornsilk-blonde hair and gorgeous grey-green eyes, who really wants to be left alone.

Faerie Apocalypse

Although an apocalypse and a half feature strongly in the timeline of the fae-apoc setting, most of the stories are set either well before or well after the event.

A dark urban fantasy series, Faerie Apocalypse is set in the modern world. The Ellehemaei fae, halfbreed bastards of beings from another plane who left more than two millennia ago, live hidden among the humans; many have faded into humanity, exhibiting nothing more than a rare psychic quirk, while their more powerful cousins hide their inhumanity behind glamours called Masks. A dark underworld of faerie and human trafficking underlies much of the setting.

The apocalypse, brought on by a return of the prodigal gods, leaves the world’s population, governments, infrastructure, and technology devastated, its humans struggling to survive, its fae in hiding from the unforgiving remnants of humanity.

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today I present to you Professor Reid Solomon.

The skinny professor looks like exactly what he is: a former NASA rocket scientist, complete with coke-bottle glasses and short-sleeved button-down shirt. He's lanky, with dark, curly hair that probably should have gone grey by now.

He appears many places throughout Addergoole, as he is the Math Professor and several people's Mentor as well

And, today, if you would like to ask Professor Solomon any question, at any point up to the beginning of Year Nine, please feel free!

Bonus: I also present DJ, Ty's parent.

The hermaphroditic villager is a cornerstone of the greater community, acting as purchasing agent as well as, along with Maureen, moving among the greater community, finding parents to foster children as well as parents to /parent/ children.

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today I present to you Jeremiah the Prophet and Liliandra-called-Lolly!

Jeremiah cy'Pelletier is a Seventh-Cohort student; he spent his first year in Addergoole Owned by Rowan, the dryad-like Fourth Cohort. He's often likened to a scarecrow - at 6'7" tall and bone-thin, with a messy tousle of brown hair at the top, the resemblance is clear.

He has been called the Prophet since his first year in school; he is rumored to have cryptic visions, although some think the moniker was just a pun on his given name. Preferring secrecy, as does his entire crew, he doesn't answer many questions about the nickname.

With him today is Liliandra cy'Linden, called Lolly. She bears a resemblance to this the porn star Loli Feder, although her nickname comes from her fondness for outfits like this (image, safe): she's a tiny blonde girl in dollish clothing, with long dollish blonde curls and an occasionally far-too-childish set of behaviours. Jeremiah has been Keeping her since several weeks into her first year - Lolly is an 8th Cohort student.

The two originally appeared in Three-Way and Duet.

And, today, if you would like to ask Jeremiah or Lolly any question, at any point up to the end of Duet, feel free!

52 45 Days To 52 Weeks



For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today I present to you Timora!



Timora is a shy, uncertain girl who reached her height (5 foot 7 inches) quickly and the rest of her growth more slowly, making her awkward and uncertain around her classmates. Added to a generally retiring nature – in a family full of loud and boisterous people, she has always been the quiet one – this generally led people to misunderstand her name as a pun for “timid.”

Her brother, Smitty, tried to tell her about Addergoole. He was hampered by first the geas, second by the fact that his experiences at the school were some of the mildest around, and third by their six-year age gap and his long absence from home during Timora’s formative years. She is left understanding that there is a family legacy relating to the school, and that there are animals to spend time with there.

52 46 Days To 52 Weeks



For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today I present to you Porter!

Arts by Inventrix and Arts by Anke

Porter is a cheerful, friendly guy with curly hair, a broad smile, and a fondness for noir detective movies. In his second year at Addergoole now, he sports a Siberian tiger Change that leaves his hair and face striped and gives him the ears and tail of said tiger.

Today I present to you Wylie!

Wylie is a middling-heighted boy with middling-brown hair and a middling build, with average grades and an average athletic ability. On paper, he is an entirely ordinary fifteen-year-old boy. (click link for more description).

His parents have told him that Addergoole is a school for “gifted” children, by which he believes they mean “disobedient and distractable.”

Wylie originally appeared in Pissing Away Time.

And, today, if you would like to ask Wylie any question, at any point up to the end of Pissing Away Time, feel free!

For @DaHob's Prompt

Finnegan is a character in Addergoole

Efrosin, Niassa, and Arna are characters in Addergoole Year Nine.

After Ghost story (LJ) and Seeing Ghosts (LJ).


Doug was waiting at the gates when the last campers had been packed off.

“Did good,” he told them, in a rough grunt. Finnegan and Efrosin shared a glance, and then looked back at the man.

“Thanks,” Finnegan offered. “Even…”

“Very good.” He nodded sharply. “So. How long before college?”

Finnegan is a characters in Addergoole

After Ghost Story (LJ)


Finnegan was woken in the middle of the night by a hand on his shoulder. For a brief moment, he forgot where he was, who he was, everything but the sensation of a midnight wake-up. He expected to hear Allyse’s purr in his ear: Trouble. Back later. Stay here; waiting orders.

Instead, it was a soft whisper, gentler than his Keeper had ever been. “Finn? Finnegan, wake up. I can’t find Brenna.” That was Aimee’s voice. Aimee, not Allyse. A world apart and then some.

Timora


24.) What might your character’s ideal romantic partner be?
Timora wants a white knight. She wants a truly nice man who sees her for the lovely soul she is and doesn’t mind that she doesn’t look like the popular girls; she wants someone who wants long walks on the beach and gentle kisses and will rescue her and carry her off on his horse.

They read you Cinderella
You hoped it would come true
That one day your Prince Charming would come rescue you
http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/john-michael-montgomery-lyrics/i-can-love-you-like-that-lyrics.html

Failing a fairy tale, she wants a nice guy who likes spending time outdoors and won’t make fun of her.

Miryam has a Meez!

http://myproductjunkie.blogspot.com/2009/01/let-out-your-curls.html (hair)

Miryam is a petite girl, barely topping 5 foot tall, with full lips and a generous smile. She generally wears the corkscrew curls of her hair pulled back from her face and down to her shoulder blades in the back.

She's a buxom, hippy girl, with a body shape sometimes described as coke-bottle: full, high breasts, very narrow waist, and full hips.

Her wings are similar to a luna moth's:

(warning: moth picture); she has two antennae (also green), similar to this or this (warning: moth picture on the second link) The antennae come out over her ears, near the curve of her skull

She tends to wear halter-necked or very-low-backed shirts to accommodate the wings, and short skirts because she likes them: a dress like this or a skirt like this with a top like this.

Full description, including personality here

Wylie is a middling-heighted boy (5’9”) with middling-brown hair and a middling build, with average grades and an average athletic ability. On paper, he is an entirely ordinary fifteen-year-old boy.

Physically, he’s pale-skinned and freckles, with blue eyes and pouty lips (not that he pouts much), still out-growing his baby fat in face and stomach, and tends towards plain t-shirts and loose-fitting jeans, or, when his mother has been fussing, plain button-down shirts and loose-fitting khakis. If he has to engage in a sport, he prefers lacrosse.

He has coyote ears in place of his human ears, in generally the same position as his human ears were, and a fluffy coyote tail http://www.allwildlifecontrol.com/images/coyote-3.jpg.

From my upcoming serial, Addergoole: Year Nine (52 Weeks, 52 Stories).

Some of them liked to pretend they didn’t. Some tried to say it was all the students’ choice, and they mustn’t do anything at all to influence it, even think about it. Some said let nature take its course.

Shira had been a hunter, a trapper, long before she’d been a teacher.

Noam is a character in my Year Nine Addergoole pieces, including Birthday Present. This is an excerpt from his description:

He's even-tempered to the point where people think him phlegmatic, calm, and rarely prone to outbursts; he was a quiet child who became a quiet teenager. This leads to people under- or over-estimating his intelligence; it also leads to them under-estimating his anger when it does flare

Addergoole Year Nine won the reader poll for "Next Year's serial;" the story proper will begin the first full week of September.

In the meantime, please enjoy the third of twenty-something character profiles: Kheper.


Kheper
b. March 15, 1987

Kheper is fiery, stubborn, strong, and hardworking, a handsome dark-haired man with a resemblance to Disney's Aladdin. His Change involves chitin armor, beetle wings, and claws, as well as scarab horns.

His mother, Tanith, is an Egyptian student-visa to the US. Her Name translates to Brings the Pain and her Change is draconic, with arm-wings that are long and fluttery and head-spikes that are quite intimidating. She is iridescent orange in color, at least in her scales and wings.

She was a studious, serious student and matured into a strong, serious woman who demands the very best of everyone around her.
