Month 05, 741 AL

North: Late Spring | South: Late Autumn
9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C

Ista is heating up swiftly, and preparing for a rough summer - hopefully nothing like the one from a couple turns before with the wildfires! The rest of Northern Pern is warming upsomewhat slower, but with no less gusto as summer begins to creep into the sky, keeping the sun awake longer, warming the ledges of the weyrs. Rainstorms are sporadic, but keep the world well watered, despite the heat of the days.

The Red Star can be seen by those who choose to see it, causing no shortage of whispers that Thread will return - and just as much dismissal from those who do not believe. After all, it's been so long, surely it is no longer a threat! Weyrleaders are, regardless, beginning to put together wings in their Weyrs, if only to keep troublesome and bored riders busy.

Month 12, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Winter -3 - 2 C | 26 - 35 F
Fort is already home to snowfalls, though early in the month they fade away when the sun rises. As the month progresses, more snow stays on the ground, ending up with several feet of snow before the month is over. The areas around homes and populations has the snow shoveled away or trodden down. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove some danger and are routinely removed.

Ista Boundaries:
Winter, 9 - 21 C | 48 - 69 F
Generally warm enough to go about without a jacket on, Ista has low humidity but high chance of rain, generally in the form of vicious afternoon thunderstorms. The storms wash away any bite of heat the day had, and leave it feeling fresh for the night. The days are short, but grow bright quickly and the afternoons seem to be particularly short when heavy thunderstorms roll in and cover the sky.

Telgar Boundaries:
Winter, -5 - 0 C | 23 - 32 F
Bitterly cold, with icy winds constantly flowing down from the mountains. Freezing rain is almost constant; the sky always a murky grey and the ground slippery with slushy refrozen ice. The days are extremely short, with the nights dropping a good number below the daily average. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove a major danger, and are checked upon every day, with anything bigger than a fist being removed.


Month 07, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Summer 27 - 38 C | 80 - 100 F
Light breezes down from the mountains tot he North keep the temperature comfortable, even when the sun can bake an egg on the edge of a weyr. Sunburn is common.

Ista Boundaries:
Summer, 34 - 43 C | 93 - 110 F
A very dry, dusty heat. Little to no rain, causing more than some to worry about the drought not breaking and the rest of the Isle being at risk of fires. Many seek the depths of weyr, hold or hall during the midday and early afternoon heat.

Telgar Boundaries:
Summer, 26 - 35 C | 79 - 95 F
Muggy, sticky and generally just plain humid. Thunder storms are regular occurances, often happening in the early afternoon or evening, with heavy rainfall before drying off sometime in the night. Mornings are usually crisp, but warm up swiftly.


Month 06, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Ista Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Telgar Boundaries: Season, Low to High

Month 04, 740 AL
North: Early Spring | South: Early Autumn
−1.9 C to 4.7 C | 20.0 C to 29.0


Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself naturally warmer, (~10C / 50) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

The Red Star can be seen by those who choose to see it, causing no shortage of whispers that Thread will return - and just as much dismissal from those who do not believe. After all, it's been so long, surely it is no longer a threat! Weyrleaders are, regardless, beginning to put together wings in their Weyrs, if only to keep troublesome and bored riders busy.

Month 12, 739 AL
North: Early Winter| South: Early Summer
-3.1 to 2.1 C | 20.4 C to 29.4 C


Winter has come slowly to the Northern lands of Pern, with more rain and cold winds than snow. As the month progresses, more and more snow will fall, with frequent blizzard-like storms towards the very end of the month. Telgar and Fort will in particular become burried under mountains of snow, while Ista is sunjected to frequent icy rainstorms, and heavy winds coming in from across the ocean.

Month 09, 739 AL
North: Early Autumn| South: Early Spring
13.4 to 21.0 C | 13.8 C to 25.6 C


Following the disastrous fires (sometime in around the 28th of Month 08), Ista Isle has found itself suddenly in the midst of constant rain; not enough to flood, but a steady, dreary downfall that seems to only take a time out for a couple of hours here and there, before coming back again. Its cast the entire sooty Isle into a sombre and depressed mood. Alongside the rain, the weather is muggy and while not hot, is not particularly cool, either.

The rest of Northern Pern is getting their usual weather, though they, too, have been called to action following the wildfires that savaged Ista. Many individuals who called Ista Island home have been relocated not just to Ista Weyr, Ista Hold or Sea Cliff Hold, but also to other areas of Pern, whether with family or friends.

Month 08, 739 AL
North: Late Summer | South: Late Winter
17.4 to 25.5 C | 10.8 C to 23.2 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm - 37 to 45 C - has resulted in an incredibly dry summer, with little to no rain. This was climaxed by a dry thunderstorm, the results of which caused three fires to start across the Island on the 24.07.739 in the early morning hours. While the results of this are yet to be played out, the events will no doubt leave more than just the scarring of the land.

Month 07, 739 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter
18.0 to 26.6 C | 10.2 C to 21.9 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 37 to 45 C range, making it now a more than slightly undesirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the more enjoyable early summer weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind. Ista's limited farmlands and fields are dry and dusty, with golden straw instead of grass where there is any growth at all.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are still getting a lot of evening rain and the occasional thunderstorms, which cools down the populus and allows them to sleep easily without sweating their brains out like the Istans.

9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 32 to 40 C range, making it a highly desirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the chilly mid-spring weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are getting a lot of rain, thunderstorms, and cloudy days. Grass is growing, flowers flowering, and baby animals popping up all over the place! Yay spring!

Month 03, 739 AL
North: Early Spring | South: Early Autumn
−1.9 C to 4.7 C | 20.0 C to 29.0


Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself uncommonly warm (~12C / 53.6) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

Gold Nadioth of Vaeyla, of Ista's flight was won by bronze Rhezalth of N'mor. You can view the Flight Thread here! Gold Aradissicath of Fort has brought about a clutch of [TBA] eggs!

Month 11, 738 AL
North: Late Autumn | South: Late Spring


Autumn is coming to an end, with the days slowly becoming shorter still, with early nights and late mornings. The temperature is getting very cool, with jackets being more required, but it has yet to actually snow. Despite this, it is often raining and miserable.

The Southern contient is in full bloom, with flowers coming to life in the grasses and on the trees. The skies are bright blue with fluffy clouds, and occassional sunshowers bringing a dampness to the day. The nights are still crisp, but not cold. The ground is starting to dry up as water is absorbed by the blooming flora.

Month 10, 738 AL
North: Mid Autumn | South: Mid Spring


Autumn is in full tilt, with the leaves a shocking array of orange and red, and more of them on the ground than on the trees. The skies are often a clear and crisp blue, with a cool breeze flowing, shifting the leaves and sending them scattering. Rain is not common, but when it does roll in the skies are dark like night come early, and thunderstorms are not uncommon, though they don't last for long and the amount of rain that falls isn't too heavy.

Month 09, 738 AL
North: Start Autumn | South: Start Spring


Nothern regions are entering into Autumn, with the trees beginning to change to their reds and oranges, while the air is beginning to feel more crips. There are still more warm days than cool, and the nights are mostly warm enough for light bedding still. Rain has faded away and most days are clear and bright.

The Southern contient finds itself heading into spring, with rain and flowers vying for attention. The ground is often muddy and squishy, while the skies are either bright and blue, or overcast wtih fluffy clouds.

Month 08, 738 AL
North: End Summer | South: End Winter


Summer is winding to an end in the Northern hemisphere, with the weather slowly cooling and the trees beginning to turn their leaves. The days are still long and bright, but the sun is beginning to lose some of its strength.

The coastal Weyrs are falling victim to coastal storms, strong winds and heavy rains with thunder and lightening.

The more inbound Weyrs and Holds find themselves drier, not getting nearly as much rain or storms, they find themselves on the end of a long drought.

Month 07, 738 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter


Summer is in full spring in the Nothern hemisphere, with the bulk of each day being unbearbly hot, followed by vicious thunderstorms and heavy humidity in the evenings and at night.

The coastal areas are experiencing monsoon like weather, and spend a lot of their time locked away in Hold, Hall or Weyr.

The more inner locations find themselves faced with more dry heat during the day, and horrible humidity in the evening and at night while the thunderstorms rage.

I'm not dead, my loves! This month's Event is 'Close Call!' - have fun! Stamps will be uploaded and on display in our Discord chatroom.

There is a topic here for discussion about Pernese religions and belief systems, including in and out of Weyr opinions (variably and as a whole) in regards to delicate matters, such as birth, death, and the afterlife. Also, ghosts anyone? Now I'm imagining a giant arse dragon ghost....

Thallyath, Casa's little gold dragon, will be taking to the skies for her maiden flight in the first week of April (IC date will be 740-04-01) and while a mate is already decided, this clutch will be PC and more candidates are ALWAYS welcome, whether you want them to Impress this round --- or not!

September 2018

Spring is here! ... In Australia, anyway!

This month’s riveting event is ‘Seas of Fun’, in honour of International Pirate’s Day! After all the drama with the fires, we expect that taking to the sea (or lake, river, pond, etc) would be a very relaxing way to spend some downtime for many dragonriders and Holderfolk alike!

In preparation for October, the even is “Memories of the Past”, which we hope will be a fun way to explore your character’s past, either in solo posts or threads, as inner monolog or as back posting! How you choose to partake is entirely up to you!

October will also see our next PC HATCHING! In order to have your Candidate qualify for Impression, they must have no less than 20 posts! There are lots of characters floating around who would be more than happy to help your Candidate breech that count! Don’t forget to also UPDATE YOUR APPLICATIONS where applicable, or make sure it is submitted at all! We can’t Impress your character if we don’t know what they should be getting!

As always, be sure to submit your threads to the IC RP Timeline submission thread, so they can be added to the list! While you’re at it, remember to submit your favourite quotes – from your character’s or others! – to the Quote Submission Thread! We want to see some recent quotes thrown in with our old ones!

If you haven't already, please drop by the Dragonrider Weyr Allocations thread, and let us know where your dragonriders call home. We are hoping to set up Wings across the three PC Weyrs over the next month or so, and your assistance is much appreciated! As a result, we will be looking for Wingleaders, Wingseconds, and of course Candidates for the clutches we have scheduled for this year!

August 2018

ITS AUGUST! Do you know what that means? It means its less than 4 months until Christmas! OMG.

Okay. So moving on! This month sees us (hopefully) wrapping up the Camp Kink event! Who doesn’t love an abundance of young adults exploring their sexuality without restraint? Its been a hell of a fun ride (haha get it?) so far! Can’t wait to see what the grapevine makes of it when words gets out … haha!

On a more serious note, this month will see us engaging in the Istan Wildfires! This event is a free for all! Feel free to have your characters interact with the event in any way you feel is suitable! There is a lot of room here for personal dramas, trouble making, hero worshiping, etcetera! We really want to see how characters interact with, and dictate, the outcome of the event!

Those of you who are intersted, please take part in a discussion about the Plot for opening up the Healer Hall! You can find it [here].

Welcome to the new month! Like always, I'm slack in getting the update up and running, but here it is! This month we have the event 'Summer Fling' - [Link] - which is turning out to be all kinds of entertaining already! Remember, it doesn't have to include smut! It could be an innocent date with some - *gasp* - hand holding!

This month also saw Gold Bedith of Mulrissa take to the skies! She was won by young Syrendryth of T'ryn! Congrats, and may your Hatching be less dramatic than the last one! The Hatching will take place in October so you have a lot of time to get Candidates created, approved, and posting up a storm!

The Secret Santa Event has been extended until the 30th of January, so for those of you (like me!) who were busy over the end of December, we hope you can get your threads up and running over the next few weeks! There has been a lot of interesting interactions so far! As we extended the SSE, there won't be a specific January event this month! Don't worry though, we have something up our sleeve for February!

If you haven't already, please drop by the Dragonrider Weyr Allocations thread, and let us know where your dragonriders call home. We are hoping to set up Wings across the three PC Weyrs over the next month or so, and your assistance is much appreciated! As a result, we will be looking for Wingleaders, Wingseconds, and of course Candidates for the clutches we have scheduled for this year!

With the end of December, our Christmas layout has gone back into hiding! You'll be able to use it again at the end of the year, when Christmas again rolls around. You can expect a new layout for the site in the near future.

December 2017

And so it is December! Can’t believe how fast this year is flying by! At any rate, we have LOTS of fun for you this month! For starters, why don’t you sign up for our Secret Santa Event! Pairs will be assigned on the 14th! You can sign your character(s) up as a Giver, a Receiver or Both! We also hope that you enjoy our Christmas layout, which will be available for use for the entire month of December! After that, it will go into hiding until next Christmas!

We will also be awarding the HORRIFYING MOMENTS stamps to those who qualified for them, as well as the WORDS OF THE MONTH for November. We hope you enjoyed these Events, and you can expect more of them in the upcoming year!

This month we will also be focusing on the RP Records, and request you submit all your threads here so we can update the Timeline! As it says in the thread, the Timeline will be updated every month, in the first week. To help us maintain, be sure to submit your threads as soon as you open them!

November 2017

Welcome to November! We'd love it if you would take the time to Vote in our Horrifying Moments threads! We will also be awarding Stamps for people who vote, not just those who took part! We hope you enjoyed this event as much as we did! You can see the Stamps that will be awarded in the Horrifying Moment's thread.

This month we are doing a 'Words of the Month' event! You can choose your word/s as indicated in the thread, and may particpate with as many characters as you desire! This contest has no voting to earn stamps; you get a stamp just for participating! Enjoy!

October 2017

Welcome to October! As part of our Halloween celebrations, the Horrifying Moments event is now open! You may START a thread at any point during the month of October to qualify it for the event! We hope you have a lot of fun with this event, and we look forward to reading your threads! Don't forget to "Like" the threads you enjoy most, so we can award someone the MOST HORRIFYING stamp! Stamps will be revealed later in the month!

September 2017

Welcome to September! This month, we're working on our Awards for the site! We are also advertising avidly! Please welcome any guests or new members with all that warm charm we know you all posess! That said, we are still seeking Affiliates, so if you're here to drop an ad, please consider us!

Our next PC Clutch will be in the new year, so now is the pefect time to join with old candidates (how many clutches have they stood for now?!) and candidate hopefuls! Get those eager young men and women out there and grow them so we can match them with their perfect lifemate when the new year rolls around and one of our lovely golds throws a clutch on the Sands -- At this point in time, the Weyrs are sharing Candidates, so your Candidate can be Searched by any Weyr, and transfer to the one holding the PC clutch!

August 2017

We are officially open for our relaunch, and are excited to meet and greet new RPers! We're currently looking for all types of characters, including Weyrleaders and goldriders! But we also have lots of room for green and blueriders, weyrfolk, candidates, and all types of Hall folk, such as Masters, Journeymen and Apprentices. If you have any questions, feel free to hit us up in the Cbox or Discord chats, which can be found on the lower part of the screen.

July 2017

We are currently having an event to Create Adoptables! And encourage everyone to take part!

History is almost complete, and the profile has been re-coded. All new characters will need to go onto the new profile, but all old can keep their current! We'll begin advertising properly over the next couple of weeks, once the history has been completed, and probably after the weekend of the 8th and 9th, because that is when ThistleProse is having her birthday.

June 2017

We are on the brink of relaunching! Our history is being rewritten and cleaned up! We are accepting new members, and old! Our advertisment has been re-written, and will be put out there soon. We are also accepting affiliates of all descriptions, genres and themes! If you would like to affiliate with us, please go here
We officially have two layouts! You can post here with any issues you find, or request any changes!

May 2017

Progress has slowed down a little, due to RL events (yay promotions! Boo no internet!) but we're getting back on track! Documents are still being written and we've put together a FAQs page, though its likely to recieve a lot of adjustments as we come across things. The current goal is to have everything set up and ready by July, but we'll see how well we go at that. And by we, I mean ThistleProse. lol.

April 2017

The layout is almost complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done; documents are being written up and can be found in the Site Map menu opion. Players can begin to move their characters' information to their Account Profiles, but be aware some changes may still be made and/or added.
If you find any bugs or issues, plese repot them here, and we will do our best to fix them in a timely manner.

Six Turns, and there were some things that hadn’t changed. The nape of Isscer’s neck itched, and when he reached to scratch at it, he could practically feel the heat. Sunburned again, shard it! With a displeased scowl, he tugged his wide-brimmed hat down further, hoping that it would at least keep some of the sun off his face. Despite the fact that it was technically autumn, it was still unbearably muggy. Already his clothing was sticking to him uncomfortably, and Isscer tugged at his tunic, unsticking it from where it lay plastered to his back.

Even if the sun was beating down and he felt like he was drenched in sweat, Isscer would not be dissuaded. He trekked stubbornly on, moving further on down the lake shore, away from the pack of screeching weyrbrats. He had begrudgingly asked a greenrider for a ride to the lake, smiled the polite smile his family had trained him to present for those of rank, and hoped for the best. He had gotten the ride, but hadn’t counted on the lake being the place to be for what seemed like all the snot-nosed brats of the Weyr.

After going what seemed an appropriate distance away (which was out of earshot, if not out of sight), Isscer began to shuck his clothing. It was stupidly hot, and shards but he missed snow! At least in Telgar winter had felt like winter; at Katila it always seemed to be hot, and Isscer hated it. It wasn’t long until he was in the water, pale arms and legs sprawled out as he floated on his back for a brief moment, enjoying the coolness of the water. Almost lazily he flopped over onto his stomach, allowing himself to sink into the water fully before bobbing back to the surface.

Isscer slicked his wet hair out of his eyes before settling into an even pace, swimming in as straight a line as he could manage, back and forth. What he didn’t plan on was someone moving into his path; unable to stop his momentum and not noticing until the last second, Isscer collided with them, arms flailing and sending water up in splashes as he tried to regain his bearing. If he had had the time to be self-conscious, he would have noted how awkward it was: his hands slid over wet skin, and he swallowed quite a bit of water before he managed to distance himself from whomever he had run into.

Now safely treading water, Isscer shoved his wet hair out of his eyes and rounded on the offending individual. "Why don't you watch where you're going, eh? Some of us are trying to swim here!"

T'rielle's attention span was such that the fact that Caxith had just lounged herself quite solidly on the shore of the lake and allowed a crowd of gleeful children climb her like a mountain didn't manage to hold his attention for more than a few minutes. There was one, who kept attempting to climb into the proper place in front of the green's wing joints but kept getting fouled up in Caxith's wings, causing the dragon to shift and send the determined little boy sliding down her side and to the sand. T'rielle, for his part, was fairly convinced that she was doing it on purpose, and made a note not to let her do the same thing to him the next time he went to get on. It wouldn't be very rider-like to get dumped by your dragon before she'd even gotten in the air.

For his part, T'rielle was being the furthest thing from productive. He hadn't even brought anything with him down to the lake when the cursed green monster had decided she wanted a swim. And far be it from T'rielle's inventory of abilities to be able to tell her 'no'. I'm irresistible. He grinned.

If I didn't know better I'd say you're terrifying. However, being that I can see inside your gorily creative imagination, I won't.

Very wise. The little dragon gave a low rumble of a laugh, sending a couple of the weyrbrats running with excited squeals.

The water was cool, and even though T'rielle hadn't been working particularly hard so far that day, it was surprisingly refreshing. He was managing just fine swimming on his back (or well enough for someone who was self-taught), not paying any attention to his surroundings because whatever was in the sky was certainly more interesting than making sure he wasn't getting in anyone's way, because he was most definitely the only one who would have drifted this far away from the bulk of his child-swarmed dragon and he didn't need to look around to be sure of that!

Until, that is, there was a mild thump! and he was suddenly attempting to breathe water (it didn't work all that well). He came up sputtering, doing the same as whoever had run into him and trying to put some distance between them--flailing limbs were something he really didn't want to get acquainted. He was already apologizing before he got his hair properly out of his face and got a nice mouthful of water in the process. The fact that there was a certain amount of indignant anger currently being aimed at him seemed to go completely lost on T'rielle. He took a moment to properly remove his hair from his face before attempting to give another (hopefully more coherent) apology. "Sorry, completely my fault. I hope I didn't drown you too badly."

If it had been anyone else they might have laughed at T'rielle's comment, taking it as a joke. What had occurred was clearly an accident, and not necessarily only one person's fault, but Isscer was not 'other people'. He regarded T'rielle with a disdainful expression, already making assumptions about this man and the green dragon being swarmed on the the shore, mouth working into a dour frown.

Sharding dragonriders, always making things more difficult. Isscer was not comfortable around dragon riders--especially greenriders--and tended to actively avoid them. Of course that was easier said than done, but he tried his hardest to keep his interaction with them to a minimum. Greenriders in particular made him uncomfortable because one of them had Stolen him, and the fact that the greens were especially sensitive to finding appropriate Candidate unnerved him; to date he had not Impressed, and Isscer seriously doubted the judgement of the greenpair that had Stolen him.

"It's fine," he grumbled testily, unwilling to continue a pointless argument. He shot T'rielle a look before glancing back at the lake shore, biting at the inside of his cheek. Curiosity won out over annoyance, and Isscer asked, "Shouldn't you be over there with the dragon? If one of the brats get hurt, their foster parents might come after you."

Ignoring the way the other man's mouth twisted into a frown, T'rielle's own expression didn't change in the least. Brushing his hair out of his eyes again and putting a little more empty water between himself and the other man, T'rielle got his first good look at the person he'd inadvertently tried to drown. While not particularly dense, T'rielle was stubborn and he wasn't overly fond of the fact that not everyone wanted to be his friend. There was a point, of course, where he would be smart enough to back off (usually with prodding thanks to Caxith), though that tended not to happen until someone explicitly told him to leave them alone. So he usually managed to worm his way under the skin.

At the mention of his dragon, T'rielle glanced at her, his grin dropping a tiny bit as the other man's words settled into his brain. It didn't take very long, of course, before that grin was right back in place and as bright as ever. "If something's going to happen my presence won't change that. Caxith's a better babysitter than I am anyway."

Maybe he's just trying to get rid of you.

There was a brief pause before T'rielle brushed her off with a mental shrug. "I'm T'rielle, by the way. You've probably figured it out, but the dragon's Caxith." The green (carefully) raised her head, sending children running with delighted squeals, and turned to look in their direction before going back to crooning at the children. "She says hello." It wasn't a particularly accurate translation--Caxith rarely gave humans the courtesy of actual greetings beyond the most banal--but T'rielle was smart enough to realize that Isscer wasn't the happiest about being run into, and his mood seemed to have plummeted (if his expression was anything to go by) when the other man realized he was a dragonrider. It obviously wasn't anything T'rielle could fix short of excusing himself, and he wasn't particularly inclined to do that just yet.

The greenrider--T'rielle--seemed to be of a cheery disposition; his grin came back, and Isscer mentally sighed. These ones were the absolute worst to get rid of because they didn't appear to notice when they weren't wanted. Or, if they did notice, they stubbornly kept trying to make conversation despite Isscer's consistent put-downs.

He sighed mentally, but was a little shocked to note Caxith's recognition. Isscer wasn't sure what to do with that, precisely; he was so used to avoiding others that he wasn't really used to being the focus of anyone's--let alone a dragon's--attention. But Caxith quickly turned her attention back to the children surrounding her, and Isscer breathed a sigh of relief; he was immensely glad that she had not spoken to him herself, as he was very uncomfortable with the idea of the dragons being able to speak to him in his head.

Isscer found himself curious, and figured that perhaps T'rielle's presence could be endured a little while longer if he could sate his curiosity. "Is she always that maternal? I thought that greens were not like that." Well, he knew golds could be possessive over their eggs but that was different: golds were more intelligent and the eggs were their own. He had never really considered that a dragon would care about children at all, thinking that they would see children as nuisances to be avoided.

"Oh, not really. She gets bored, and apparently kids are more amusing than us adults. I never really thought about it in terms of maternal instinct or anything." Casting a caculating eye on the green dragon still lounged out on the shore, T'rielle grinned a little wider to himself before turning back to Isscer. "I suppose she does have her moments, though. Caxith isn't particularly forgiving, so if they do something that irritates her she'll warn them off and that's that."

Still stubbornly convinced that he could change Isscer's opinion about him (or dragonriders in general--no one ever said T'rielle had particularly realistic expectations), T'rielle cast about for something else to talk about. He was of the opinion that he had a certain affinity for lighting on topics that people liked to talk about, though the truth of the matter was that he was quite good at generalizing to a point that anyone would be able to pick up something that they enjoyed, no matter how different T'rielle's own interests might have been. He was the curious sort, never above exhausting a subject until he couldn't think of anything else to learn.

Unless it was about food or where she could get some, Caxith didn't much care for the daily workings of humans aside from the very short list of those that she actually found interesting. Which seemed to get longer and longer thanks to her overly friendly rider. Caxith tended to be very judgmental, and she didn't give people very many chances before she decided they weren't worth her time. T'rielle, on the other hand, tended to give people too many chances. Forgiveness could be a virtue or a vice.

He didn't miss the fact that Isscer declined to give his own name in return to T'rielle's own introduction, but it only caused a moment of hesitation before he sprung to the next train of thought. "If I'm not prying--" He knew very well that he probably was, but didn't particularly care at this point, "--what is it you do?" He was hoping, clearly, for something interesting to latch onto .Or something not so interesting, but an obscure detail that caught his attention tended to work just as well as some impossible-to-miss one.

"Interesting." It was, to some degree, interesting despite the fact that dragons tended to make Isscer feel ill-at-ease. He had never considered that greens would get along well with children, but this was probably because Isscer didn't dwell on dragons very often. He had plenty of other things to keep himself occupied, and deciphering dragon-human interactions was not high on his list of priorities.

An awkward feeling settled over Isscer; did he say or did he go? He had said his piece, gotten his argument in--he was finished with the conversation. But T'rielle threw a wrench in Isscer's plan, and Isscer couldn't stop the slight frown at the question. But the question was somewhat unexpected too: Isscer couldn't remember the last time anyone had cared to ask him what he did. They were all too busy caring for dragons to notice him, to care that he was at least partially responsible for the bread in the kitchens. It was somewhat disgusting that the important people, other Stolen, were forgotten even though they did serve a practical purpose beyond being forced into Candidacy.

"I, uh." Isscer began, knowing full well that he sounded ridiculous but still momentarily stunned that someone cared. "I'm a Farmcrafter. Ah, Junior Journeyman Farmcrafter Isscer." For a brief moment, Isscer looked away from T'rielle, taking a moment to compose himself. Even if he had bothered to ask Isscer about himself, he was still a greenrider after all! "I grow wheat; it's my specialty. That's probably why they Stole me--to date I haven't had any luck Impressing."

T'rielle was more than happy to take 'interesting' as an answer. There were certainly parents about the Weyr who were more than vocal about their dislike for dragons interacting with their children (completely ignoring the fact that the kids were generally the instigators). And unfortunately for the rider, it wasn't the dragon that parents came screaming to when they finally found where their kid had run off to. On the other hand, Caxith wasn't the sort to chase them off unless she was in a dour mood, even if she wasn't particularly playful. That, for the most part, she left to T'rielle, if only because she knew that he likely wouldn't do anything about it unless she complained.

He wasn't stupid, though he sometimes neglected to comprehend why, exactly, the Northerners were so adverse to their lot here. But then, he couldn't quite comprehend why anyone would have had problems with getting the chance to Impress a dragon. Growing up in a Weyr did that to people, clouded their perception, he supposed. It wasn't an issue that T'rielle tended to linger on for more than a couple minutes, and this time was no different. He gave a grin that wasn't dulled in the least by Isscer's hesitance when the other man answered his query.

"Oh, so I should in part be thanking you for breakfast this morning!" He said brightly. It wasn't a normal thought for him, by a long shot. "Oh, I doubt that! I remember there was this one boy, before the exile, who stood for eight Turns before he finally Impressed. Your dragon hasn't been clutched yet, that's all." He paused a moment, then backpedaled. "Not, of course, to say they didn't care about your Craft skills, though." He finished lamely. Nicely saved. His dragon purred, now solidly entrenched on her back in the mud, water lapping over a single outstretched wing.

"You don't have to," the Farmcrafter replied, brow knitting in momentary confusion. The joke went way over his head, and he didn't seem to realize it. "Most people don't think about where their food comes from--they just care that they have it to eat." Isscer was awkward at the best of times, but when he felt uncomfortable it seemed to get worse. Despite his inability to understand the joke, a pleased flush crept up his neck and spread across his face; it was rare that anyone recognized the dedication and work he put into his Craft, and to be to thanked was an exceedingly rare thing.

It was this rush of pride that tempered the disappointment of yet another person insisting that his dragon was waiting, that it was not shelled yet but it would eventually come. It made him want to tear his hair out, to stomp and yell, because couldn't they see? Of course they couldn't. Stupid sharding dragonriders did not seem to understand that there existed people who did not aspire to Impress. Isscer had only ever aspired to be a successful craftsman--nothing more.

"Perhaps." It was all he could manage without coming across as blatantly negative about the whole idea, and Isscer forced a wan smile that he hoped would fool the greenrider. "Ah, well. I should be going." He shot a look toward the sand that was almost longing before glancing back to T'rielle. "But it was nice to meet you--when I see you next, I will remember to say hello." The Farmcrafter didn't see much point in trying to continue a dying conversation, figuring that T'rielle would be more interested in looking after his dragon and knowing that the last thing he wanted to discuss was his future dragon--or lack thereof--any more.
