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.

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!

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.

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.

ITS AN UPDATE! HOORAH!

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....

Healer Hall is accepting Gold Candidates (just from Fort, for now) and R'nya will soon be discussing with his Weyrwoman Rhaedalyn the merits of bringing in additional female candidates.... on the condition they are approved for Healer Apprenticeship...

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].

June 2018

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!

In the meantime, gold Okalinath of Kahleena has taken to the skies! You can find her Flight thread taking place on the 4th, here Currently, there is no planned winner, so be sure to throw your bronzes and browns her way! They do not need to be natives to Telgar Weyr to participate!

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.

N'mor of Bronze Rhezalth

Indamor – no, N’mor – had woken up fairly early, surprised to find that his dragonet was very much asleep. That, too, had taken a moment to ensure wasn’t actually a dream. Wide, puzzled eyes had looked around the room that wasn’t his, before landing on the fat bronze lump curled up with him on the floor. His blanket had been thrown around him at one point, and he could tell by the way his shoes were paired up by the door that his father had done rounds before going to bed himself.

Soulful eyes turned back to the dragonet, and N’mor swelled with pride as he reached out to gently stroke the dragonet’s belly, which was softly rising and falling with each breath eh took. He was such a lovely, uniform bronze colour! Well… except for the most bizarre lime green marking on his nose and headknobs. The boy wasn’t quite sure what to make of that aspect of his dragon, but he was sure it would vanish when Rhezalth matured; his father said the dragonets moulted and got new hides and he hadn’t seen any that looked the same as adults as they had during their Weyrlinghood.

I like my nose.
Indamor startled slightly, then laughed softly. “I like it too, I guess. Are you – you are!” Surprised eyes widened dramatically at the sudden overwhelming desire for food and he struggled to his feet before pulling his boots on while Rhezalth snuffled around the room. Indamor rolled his eyes slightly with a fond smile when he realised the dragonet was honestly looking for food. “There isn’t anything in here. C’mon, I know where we can get you fed.”
Yay!
Indamor raised an eyebrow slightly, shook his head, and lead his dragonet out of the barracks, whispering harshly as he emphasised the need to be quiet when passing the other rooms – especially that of B’jin.

Rhezalth paused, squinting, as the door was opened, before giving his tail a flick and trotting outside. Why must we be so silent? The bronze looked up at Indamor as they walked. Will something happen?
“Not if we’re quiet! Dad doesn’t like to be woken up early, so it’s best not to risk it!”
Is that not the man we were trying not to wake, though?
“Yes. Better safe than sorry. C’mon, Telrynd – or whatever – is over there.”
Nudging Rhezalth across a little, N’mor waved a greeting to his dad (who was more occupied looking over someone else’s dragonet) and made sure the pair of them arrived where Telrynd was feeding his bronze.

“Man we rule.”
What are we ruling?
Indamor laughed.

While he was used to rising early to help his mom in the crèche, T’ryn couldn’t really say he was fully awake right then and it was nearly noon. Being woken at an odd hour for the Hatching, managing to Impress on his first try and almost from the beginning, and then dealing with the tiny bronze’s hunger and sleeping habits which included snoring and rolling around didn’t make for a peaceful rest. T’ryn could have gone for a few hours more of sleep. He’d make due, though, and how could he not when he had an amazing dragon to call his own?

We will sleep again soon. That man fluttering around like a fool over there will understand. He will have to cope if he does not. Syrendryth’s voice still startled T’ryn thanks to its odd register. He knew the dragon with the bright almost orange hide was a bronze but there were times he wondered if he had broken all rules and laws of the universe and Impressed a gold. That voice was so tricky! “I think he’ll understand. He’s in charge of our well-being after all – and there’s Indamor.”

T’ryn waved to his friend as Indamor approached, smiling as the bronze followed along. He was amazed by how amazing they did and was glad they Impressed together. His laughter joined Indamor’s, spurred on by both his friend’s comment and the dragonet’s question. “We so do! And we rule everything!” He laughed a little again, since he wasn’t sure if that was a clear answer for the dragonet. It’d have to do!

Syrendryth studied the pair that approached them, having stopped eating long enough to sit primly and stick his nose in the air as he did so. The human was special to T’ryn so he was deemed worthy of his attention; for now. His bronze brother was eyed a bit more as Syrendryth tried to figure out if the dragonet was stupid or still half asleep like T’ryn seemed to be. He’d have to wait to solve that puzzle. Introductions?

“Oh, sorry,” T’ryn grinned at the dragonet and patted him on the head. “This is Syrendryth. He threatened to call me T’nd but went with T’ryn.” A look was given to Indamor as he mentioned the name that sounded so much like R’nd’s, knowing his friend would pick up on the significance of it all and the relief of not getting that name. He wanted to know his father better and to be known by R’nd but that wasn’t the way to do it.

Oh, the little dragonet responded in kind to the answer Telrynd had given to his question. He considered this fact for several moments, before nodding his head slightly in acceptance. It certainly seemed a perfectly acceptable course of action, and they were, of course, perfectly suited to ruling everything. N’mor’s mind told him as much!

Both boy and dragon turned their full attention to first Syrendryth, then to Telrynd as he took the chance to introduce himself and his dragon. At the name he had been almost given, N’mor’s eyebrows arched upward slightly and he gave the dragonet a sceptical look. He was glad to hear that his friend had gotten a better name, though! He nodded slightly.

“At least your dragon has sense,” Indamor drawled in response, with a droll look at Rhezalth, who looked anything but amused. “This is Rhezalth, and he decided to call me N’mor.” There was lingering disgust as the boy spoke the name and Rhezalth glared at him before primly burying his nose in the bucket of meat he was presented with. He liked the name, and the reasons N’mor had issue with it were silly; it didn’t sound anything at all like the man that lingered in the back of his young lifemate’s mind.

Besides; We outclass him, we outrank him, and we can always hurt him back later. The casual way the dragonet spoke belied the emotions N’mor could feel in himself, but somehow knew came from the young bronze. The boy’s mouth was slightly ajar as he stared down at the creature, wondering if there was any way at all to respond to a comment such as that. He was really glad his dad was preoccupied!

A sideways glance at T’ryn was given, and N’mor puffed out an irritable breath and shrugged. While he figured his friend would figure that Rhezalth was speaking of N’mall, whom N’mor felt his new name was far too close to, he doubted anyone but his father, Amorandii and the brownrider in question were aware of the exact details to the breakup that had occurred so many turns ago.

Even if that breakup had led to B’jin’s bed being occupied by R’nd. Stupid blueriders; why was it always blueriders? We outrank them, too. A pause. When I’m bigger, I can stomp on them. Indamor’s features twisted up in comical and dramatic bewilderment as he just gawked at his dragonet.

“We can’t just stomp on everyone we dislike, Rhezalth,” N’mor deadpanned, looking flatly at the back of the dragonet’s head as he munched on his meat. A few moments later, Rhezalth lifted his head up, and eyed N’mor through one slowly swirling and critical eye.

We can, actually. He stated simply, and returned to his meal.

Indamor shrugged; so long as he could keep Rhezalth from actually following through on the desire to crush all the little people, he should be fine.

“You should probably keep such opinions to yourself,” he added drolly, settling down on the grass with his bucket in his lap. Who’d have thought he’s Impress a blood thirsty bronze? Then again, Larrikith was a raging bitch (just too small to really act on it), so perhaps he had gone and followed his father’s example after all.

Hopefully he’d have better control over Rhezalth than B’jin had over Larrikith!

Greens are useless.

“Opinionated, aren’t we?”

T’ryn didn’t say anything when his friend’s new name was given. He eyed up first the dragon, questioning why that name would be given, and then N’mor to see how he was handling it. There would have been enough time since Impressing to get over any dislike of the name and to find a way to accept it, especially since it was N’mor in question, but T’ryn was convinced it would still be a rough ride for a little while for his friend to fully accept the name. Then again, what else would he be called? I’mor? I’or? That one sounded like a name given to the beloved family donkey. He gave a little grin at the thought and was suddenly glad he had an amazing name and Syrendryth decided not to be cruel to him with T’nd.

Despite only hearing half of the conversation thanks to the dragonets having horrible volume control, T’ryn tried to keep up and even chuckled at what sounded like Rhezalth wanting to squish everyone that bothered them. That was certainly one way to solve problems! A bit messy though, Syrendryth countered as he looked up from his bucket of meat he had gone back to after introductions, looking a bit messy himself. T’ryn pointed to his mouth which had the bronze hatchling cocking his head to the side, wondering what that meant, but finally a tongue darted out and Syrendryth started cleaning up after his rambunctious eating.

“Here’s another opinion for you. We’re both clever, Impressed interesting bronze dragons, and we’re destined to lead. We’re going to make names for ourselves and no one will ever remember the men our names may resemble.” In truth, N’mor wasn’t that close to N’mall and most of the population would never make any sort of connection or have pity for the young bronzerider.

“And greens have their uses or else they wouldn’t exist.” While he was still a bit too young to fully appreciate all of their uses, T’ryn knew enough from lessons about dragons and from watching wing practices to know the little dragons served a few purposes and that even the biggest of bronze dragons would miss the greens if they were gone.

“Are you finished? I can start oiling your hide if you are.” He turned to Syrendryth again, examining the bucket in the process and then glanced back to N’mor. “He’s a bit too good at making sure I know when and where he has an itch. I’m already dreaming up ways of rigging a little bucket shower for him or maybe a small pool of oil and he can dive in and out of when needed.” A grin accompanied his crazy ideas as he spoke. While they would be fun to try to create and watch the dragon use, T’ryn really didn’t mind maintaining the pretty hide – so far. Was Syrendryth going to end up Hoth-sized or Ronarth-sized?

I’m not opinionated, the little bronze was clearly frowning as he peered up at N’mor. I’m right. He eyed Syrendryth for a moment and gave a physical shrug, shuffling his wings and sticking his nose in the air. I never claimed I’d clean it up, he pointed out regally. Just because he wanted to squish, the fools did not mean he was going to mop up the mess afterwards. They could mop up their own squished mess; if they had not been so useless to start with, then they would not have required squishing, which wouldn’t have left a mess!

A slightly disdainful look was given to T’ryn. I did not say they did not. I said they were useless, not that they didn’t have uses. N’mor’s eyebrows arched up and he shook his head, partly to himself and partly to T’ryn, deciding not to bother trying to work that one out; his dragon was clearly full of very strong opinions and he just as clearly didn’t have the wisdom to voice them in a way that made any sense. Peering past his dragonet’s nose, N’mor decided the bucket was about as empty and clean as it was going to get and he set it aside. Rhezalth settled himself down on his haunches and set about cleaning himself while N’mor turned to eye T’ryn.

After a moment, he shook his head with a grin. “Very dignifying,” he teased, trying hard not to picture Rhezalth stumbling around in some strange contraption. He could already tell the young bronze would take deep offense to that. Then again, maybe he would surprise him and find it amusing? N’mor wasn’t quite sure it was worth the risk, not so early in their bond, at least! Still actively trying not to picture that, or Rhezalth wallowing in a shallow pool of oil, N’mor strode with determination to where the oil and cloths were, and then came half-jogging back, tossing a cloth at T’ryn and flicking Rhezalth across the rump with the corner of his own. The dragonet gave him a droll look that made N’mor smirk.

Unintentionally following T’ryn’s train of thought, N’mor instructed Rhezalth to stand up and extend his wings so he could start by oiling his back. “As glorifying as having a huge dragon must be, I think greenriders have the best deal.” He grinned as he literally poured half the bucket of oil over Rhezalth’s back, letting it slide down his back to pool against his wing membranes; the dragonet gave an inelegant squeal at the cool touch. “I much prefer scrubbing down Larrikith or Grith compared to slaving over, say, Ronarth.” He grinned. That was one heady size difference! “Probably why the other colour’s don’t let their dragons get painted by the ‘brats!” That, and N’mor knew many of both riders and dragons considered themselves above such antics.

“I reckon Rhezalth would look pretty spunky with pink polkadots, don’t you?” The weyrling smirked wickedly at the dragonet’s horrified look: clearly N’mor had made no effort to hide that particular image!

T’ryn laughed at the image that he conjured up with their dragonets covered in colourful patterns. Syrendryth clearly didn’t think much of the idea either but he held all comments about it to himself though T’ryn could feel the unspoken opinion bleeding through the bond and it only made him laugh more. He batted playfully at his dragon’s nose and went back to rubbing down the soft hide with oil. “I think he’d look great with polka dots. Syrendryth, however, is pretty colourful on his own right now!” The hide that was increasingly becoming coated with oil was more or less a bright orange. As he drifted off to sleep earlier and yet again now, T’ryn wondered exactly what his dragon’s hide would look like once he was an adult. Would it keep the same intensity? Would it tone down? Would it have a cool pattern like Zeianth or a little beauty mark like Veeth? That was definitely something he wasn’t sure he could patiently wait to see.

He fell into silence as he moved from spot to spot on his dragon’s body, making sure he didn’t miss even a spec. No way was he going to mess this up! He had Impressed on his first attempt at Standing and bonded to a wonderful bronze. The very least he could do besides showing how worthy he was of such a dragon was to make sure Syrendryth was well taken care of. There was so much to remember and do though! All of the lessons and what he had learned in his own time were swimming around in his head and T’ryn hoped he could keep it all straight. He liked strategies and puzzles and bonding to a dragon was definitely a new puzzle to solve and would take multiple adjustments before everything became natural and normal but even with all of the overload right then, T’ryn was still confident they could find their way. After all, not only did he have dreams of being in a wing one day but he wanted to lead a wing and he wouldn’t be able to do that if he couldn’t even sort out how to bathe and oil his dragon.

Without realising he was doing it, his gaze drifted from his fellow classmates to see how they were doing to the general area. It had become a habit he hated but couldn’t stop. Would R’nd show up to help that day? Would the idiot bluerider piece together their resemblance and how he used to have a thing with T’ryn’s mother? Likely not. His obliviousness was as frustrating as his mom telling him not to approach R’nd about it yet. Suddenly annoyed with everything, T’ryn forced his attention away from that subject.

“What do you think B’jin has planned for us today?” T’ryn glanced over at his friend to see how he was doing and noticed they were both close to finishing the task at hand. The dragonets were fed and oiled, two of the most important things to keep on top of in the early days besides sleep. He really had no idea what else would be seen to for the first little while. B’jin had done a quick inspection of Syrendryth when they joined the group earlier but no word on the day’s plans had been given. Maybe this was all there was. Feed the dragon, don’t let the dragon choke, bathe the dragon if needed, oil the dragon constantly, and sleep when you could.

“He is,” N’mor spoke mildly as he turned his gaze from Rhezalth to look at the molten form of Syrendryth. Very gold and orange-esque, that one, vastly at odds to Rhezalth’s greeny bronze colour… Never mind the shocking green of his nose and headknobs! What was going on with that? Neither boy nor dragon made any comment about the unseemly green contrasting of Rhezalth’s features, and N’mor shrugged it off. Twelve months, more or less, and his dragonet would shed the awful colour and reveal his new hide. The only worry there, of course, was that he would be even greener! Not likely, he put in with a snide air to his tone, and tossed his head. N’mor smiled slightly.

As T’ryn set to work on his dragon, so too did N’mor, working diligently over Rhezalth’s hide in much the same manner. He was not interested in his young dragon coming out of his growth looking much like Larrikith, with the lack of love and care being given and blatantly there for the entire world to see if they took a moment to have a look. It really was disgraceful, and as much as N’mor absolutely adored Larrikith – she was the very reason he wanted to be a dragonrider, and he was sure his time with her growing up would assist with his being a great student during his Weyrlinghood – but he did not want his bronze to have a mangled hide like her!

Lifting his attention from Rhezalth’s hide, with a last swipe of the dragonet’s nose, N’mor raised his eyebrows at T’ryn and then glanced towards his father with a one-shouldered shrug. “Dunno, nothing exciting, likely.” It would be difficult to do anything worth an ounce of interest until the dragonets were old enough to stop being a buzz kill; eat-sleep-bathe-eat again was going to be a way of life for far too long! “Lots of eating and sleeping, probably.” The droll tone of his voice was ended with a snort, when he nodded towards the greenrider, who was indeed ushering weyrlings off to bed, or shady out of the way locations where they could snooze until the next demand for food and oil.

“At least we don’t have to go to bed.” He was not a child! Mandatory naptime was insulting; snoozing under one of the nice trees, however, well, that was an agreeable enough idea! Rhezalth gave a rumble of agreement, and turned his gaze to one that he found appealing. That one, he stated, and headed off smartly.
