[[caption-width-right:350:Kailani doing what she does best: thinking.]]
Shahin, [[IceQueen cold]] [[StepfordSnarker and cynical]], thinks she’s being sent to the Addergoole School because her mother can no longer deal with her freakish ways.
Kailani, [[DitzyGenius brilliant and naïve]], thinks she’s being sent to a college prep school for exceptional teenagers.
Jamian, who [[IJustWantToBeNormal seems so normal]], is just worried that in the close quarters of the underground boarding school, his secret will come out.
In a way, they’re all right, but the truth of the school is [[WizardingSchool stranger]] - and [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors darker]] - than they might have imagined.
''[[http://addergoole.com/ Addergoole]]'' is a contemporary fantasy WebSerialNovel with erotic, dark-fantasy and FracturedFairyTale elements. The link is to the SFW first page. Some other pages ''will'' have NSFW content. Administrivia/YouHaveBeenWarned.
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil -- Many, if not most, of the antagonists at the school are so because they were twisted by previous - purportedly much worse - students.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim -- Lots of examples, but Joff [[HornyDevils the incubus]] is a good one.
* EverybodyWantsTheHermaphrodite -- Jamian is considered very attractive and sought-after by the fellow students. And, to some extent, so is Ty/a. [[spoiler: Jamian's attractiveness is in part due to Changing into a pure-blooded Daeva, though, but being a hermaphrodite is still portrayed as a Highly Desirable Trait.]]
* EvilutionaryBiologist -- [[spoiler: Dr. Regine Avonmorea, designer of the Addergoole School and breeding project.]]
* TheFairFolk -- All of the Ellehemaei are conceptually based on the Faerie, especially their being bound by their word and certain "allergies" to traditionally faerie-repellent plants - though interestingly enough, ''not'' to ColdIron.
* HotTeacher -- All of them. Well, maybe not Akatil.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl -- Tolly and Agatha
* IceQueen -- Shahin. [[spoiler: [[AnIcePerson Literally]].]]
* LittleBitBeastly -- Faerie awakening comes with a physical change. For quite a few, this includes animal features.
* MeaningfulName -- Everyone has a name that reflects their nature or destiny in some way, and upon adulthood they're given descriptive names as well.
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm -- [[Prof. Vanderlinden]] is almost always in one of two forms: male, or female, both based on their original "human" appearance.
* TeensAreMonsters -- This is pretty much the entire school and much of the plot in a nutshell.
* AdamAndEvePlot -- [[spoiler: Dr. Regine designed the breeding project aspect of the school as a way to reverse the slow attrition of the pureblood Ellehemaei from weakening bloodlines, among other things.]]
* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors -- [[spoiler: Addergoole is a boarding school for faeries who've been raised human. There's mind control built into the walls. Slavery and rape are encouraged. The older kids are geased to not tell the new kids anything until it's too late, and a lot of them don't want to warn them anyway. The whole school is a training version of faerie society.]]
* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex -- Encouraged by the school administration. [[spoiler: It helps make sure people [[MandatoryMotherhood get pregnant]].]]
* FunctionalMagic -- The Ellehemaei are able to use magical Words in spells called Workings, which have direct and immediate effects on the world.
* HalfHumanHybrid -- Most of the Ellehemaei are "halfbreeds" - they have human ancestry weakening their magical faerie genetics.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent -- Dragons are evil, shapeshifting faeries who eat people.
* PubertySuperpower -- The [[TheFairFolk Ellehemaei]] Change into their true form and power after completing puberty.
* WrongGuyFirst -- [[spoiler: Kailani, Taro and Conrad. Taro's the wrong guy]].
