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!

Perhaps his wife was right; he was spoiling their sweet new servant lately. She had said it with a smile and had been teasing since she was fond of Ekshan and the work he managed to get done but she was still right. Gabrin pointed it out to Ekshan that evening as well when he went to check on the man while Tanriel was detained with another bout of sickness brought on by the pregnancy. He had taken the man to a Hatching, a first for them both, and as much as Gabrin enjoyed it and found it educational, he knew Ekshan had been beside himself with joy at being at a Weyr and not a single word needed to be said with the excitement that shone in his eyes.

Now he was being brought in style to the Telgar gather for Turnover. He was certain the boy and his family would have attended at least once in the past but now he would show up in fine clothing and mingle with the upper class that didn’t always branch out from their own small circles. Gabrin had even teased Ekshan as he straightened the younger man’s shirt that he could play lordling that night if he found someone worth bringing home. Tanriel liked to visit with her family in the main manor and Gabrin was fine with that request, stating he would even join her – the breakfast that family had for the first of the turn was always amazing. So their home would be empty save for their small staff and Ekshan would be left in charge and practically encouraged to find someone to play with.

When Tanriel was ready, they headed to the field that would play host to their evening of drinking and debauchery. Gabrin had to admit that even he was surprised when he spotted several dragons milling about on the edges. He hadn’t heard about the dragonriders being invited from official or unofficial sources. Given the sour look on the Lord Holder’s face when they approached him to pay respects a few minutes later, it was clear it was just as unexpected to him. Gabrin had to suppress a smirk and needed to remember to congratulate some of the riders later on.

As Tanriel went to find her sister, Gabrin pulled Ekshan to the side after procuring a glass of wine. “I think tonight will be far more entertaining than expected.” A sip was taken and Gabrin nodded his appreciation for the vintage before casting a glance around for the dragonriders. They weren’t that hard to spot since they seemed far livelier than the residents of Telgar Hold and Gabrin couldn’t wait to see what would transpire. “Feel free to mingle. Perhaps one of your new friends from the Hatching is here or you can go make some new friends. It never hurts to be cozy with someone on both sides of the argument, remember.”

That was a conversation he had had with Ekshan on several occasions. Telgar, the Halls, and several other Holds were opposed to the return of their once mighty protectors but Gabrin’s family ruled High Reaches and was related to a greenrider. They had been easily swayed to supporting the dragonriders once more. Gabrin himself had made early contact with the Weyrsecond and was working his way into a comfortable position of trust amongst that side. Around the lord of Telgar he always played nice for that side but he had yet to fully commit one way or the other – though he was betting on the dragonriders winning out in the end. It was just a matter of when that would happen.

“Go and enjoy yourself, Ekkie. Tomorrow, I expect to hear all about your adventures.”

Gabrin was probably right in that he was spoiling Ekshan just a little, but the former cotholder felt quite certain that he deserved it, and he always tried to show grateful for the gifts and trips bestowed upon him. Ekshan the grubby cotholder was a far cry from Ekshan the quiet, but efficient assistant who gave no one any reason to suspect he was anything more. Gabrin knew the truth of course, having been the mastermind behind the deception, but most, like Tanriel, saw only a dedicated assistant. He was slowly but surely growing a little more self assured as he settled into a life with many more freedom than he previously stifled existence of the family hold.

Pherhaps it was his increased confidence that brought about Gabrin's suggestion about getting to play lord of the hold while he was off visiting his wife's family. That wasn't the sort of thing Ekshan would have attempted without encouragement and his mind mulled over the suggestion as he finished dressing. Gabrin may have been experienced with such things, but Ekshan was far less skilled or certain about his ability to charm anyone into his bed. He worried his lower lip between his teeth and he contemplated his chances of success.

Eskan trailed dutifully after Gabrin and Tanriel, making note of the presence of a number of dragonriders as well as the
displeased look of the Lord Holder's face. They may not have been invited to the celebration, but didn't seem to be about stop them from attending and enjoying themselves. Traditionally they likely would have been honored guests and even if
some holders were giving them dark looks a number of people were still showing some discrete interest. Ekshan's understanding of the issue was rudimentary. It was mostly the ranking population who were not in support, those without
rank saw a chance for themselves or their children at a better life.

He offered a nod of agreement after Gabrin pulled him aside to share his observations. Ekshan could hardly disagree. Life
in seclusion in the South had made the rider far less inhibited than most of the Northeners tended to be, well unless you'd gotten a fair bit of wine into them first. "I remember." He assured the man, knowing Gabrin himself was friendly with both sides and committed to neither, not yet anyway.

Gabrin's admonishment was still ringing in his ears as he ventured off to procure a glass of wine. He was going to need the liquid courage it would provide. He quickly reduced the glass to one last swallow and he wandered through the crowds of revelers. The dancing square with its enthusiastic couples was given a wide berth as he continued to scan the crowd, unsure of what he was looking for, but hoping he'd know it when he saw it. He replaced his now empty glass with a full one, taking a long sip to reduce the chance of spilling any when he finally spotted a familiar face.

He'd met K'tir at the last hatching. A good looking Brownrider who's personality was a better match with Ekshan's than some of the more animated riders. He'd also been kind enough to answer his questions about the hatching and dragons in general. Ekshan lifted his glass to his lips for another mouthful letting the warmth of the alcohol melt away his usual inhibitions. He wasn't drunk, but he'd had enough wine now to make approaching the Brownrider possible. "Hello K'tir! I didn't expect to see you at our little celebration." He said gesturing over the far flung crowd that likely included most of Telgar's population before turning his gaze back to the handsome brownrider.

K’tir turned in the direction he heard his name being called, wondering who it was that was looking for him. It only took a moment to register the man as Ekshan, a Northerner that was full of questions borne from genuine curiosity and interest. He really hadn’t expected much from Holders that came for the last Hatching but Ekshan had been a surprise and the conversation rather refreshing. No doubt he could expect more of the same on their newest meeting.

“I don’t think anyone had,” he replied with a chuckle, gaze taking a moment to scan around the crowd that was slowly filling up with mingling dragonriders, “but we wanted to show everyone how we truly celebrate such occasions. I think tonight will be remembered for quite a long time.” Given some of the men he had already spotted, K’tir didn’t doubt that at all. In fact, some of the antics that could happen would likely be seared into the minds of the Telgar citizens. Even the typically well-behaved lost themselves when enough alcohol and cheer surrounded them and a glance at R’nd and B’jin with drinks in their hands moving closer to the Harpers had K’tir hoping they put on another good show.

Tell him I say hi! Ghaeth’s energetic voice boomed through K’tir’s mind and he didn’t even need to see his dragon way over on the edges of the gathering area to know the brown was bouncing from foot to foot in excitement. “Ghaeth says hi. He seems as happy to see you as I am. I admit, I had hoped to see you here.” K’tir took a long sip of his drink as his gaze slowly trailed down Ekshan’s fine figure before coming to rest once more on his face like the barely behaving man that he was.

Ekshan's gaze followed K'tir's as he examined the crowd. He'd been to these sorts of gatherings before, though never in area designated for the upper classes. The Telgar nobles were more subdued than the less well off cotholders and lower class workers, but the addition of dragonriders to the mix was stirring things up more than normal as the Southerner's high spirits infected the Northeners. "I don't doubt it." Ekshan agreed as he took a sip of his wine. Tonight was going to be a memorable one for many, and unlikely to be the last time dragonriders showed holders how to really enjoy themselves.

He returned his gaze to the brownrider, feeling a warm pleasure that had nothing to do with wine as K'tir spoke. He had hoped K'tir would recall him from the hatching, but he hadn't expected Ghaeth to remember him as well. He was so flattered he almost missed K'tir's slow examination. His cheeks flared red as the Brownrider's eyes came back to his face. Ekshan was use to such looks from Gabrin, but to be ogled by a dragonrider was something new, and left him mentally if not physically flailing over how to respond. K'tir was an attractive man, fit and well muscled from his life as a rider, a contrast to Ekshan's slender frame, just the sort he wouldn't mind getting to know better.

He bought himself some time with another long swallow of wine. Gabrin's earlier encouragements coupled with the wine made him bolder than normal, though he still had a some lingering trepidation about how best to proceed. "It's an honor to be remembered by you both." He finally managed, a bit haltingly at first, but his words smoothed out as he continued. "I was hoping to find a familiar face this evening. Gabrin is off visiting family and so I've been left on my own until tomorrow." His heart raced along in his chest, though outwardly he managed to maintain his usual cool expression, well as cool as his flushed cheeks would allow.

K’tir raised an intrigued brow at the confession that Gabrin was off doing his own thing, leaving Ekshan alone but wisely didn’t make any comments on it. It was nice to see the master had let his pet off the leash for the night and the brownrider was more than willing to jump into the vacancy left behind. Ekshan was full of questions but it was a genuine interest that spurred them on and K’tir didn’t sense any games in it just like Ghaeth didn’t seem to think there was anything hostile about the man. Ekshan was a good-looking guy that was chatty but friendly and knew when silence was the better route. No wonder a little lordling like Gabrin had taken an interest in him.

“I will happily play the role of familiar face and keep you company until tomorrow,” K’tir replied lightly with a smile ghosting over his lips. There were implications in his words and it may have been concerned mean to tease Ekshan but he liked the way the younger man flushed so easily before slowly adapting to the situation. “If you’ll permit it, of course. We can converse some more and expand on the ground we have in common.” It was rather obvious to him, a man that grew up in a Weyr and saw it on a regular basis, that Ekshan had an interest in men but his upbringing left him confused and living in the shadows. K’tir guessed it was why Gabrin had drawn the man to him for whatever his purposes were. But K’tir specialized in secrets when it came to lovers, having both a bronze and brownrider quietly slipping into his bed at times in the cover of night and pretending nothing happened the moment they walked out the door. It amused K’tir and the sex was excellent enough that his lips never flapped about the hook-ups.

“Shall we procure a bottle of wine and a quiet spot to continue chatting? It seemed like you had more questions time didn’t allow for at the Hatching.” He wasn’t above getting drunk with Ekshan and seeing what happened. In fact, it sounded extremely appealing to the brownrider that didn’t have any responsibilities or plans that night.

A small, delighted smile tugged at Ekshan's lips at K'tir's reply, and a pleasant thrill ran up his spine. He liked the man, he seemed far more genuine than many he met with these days, and exuded a quiet confidence despite the not so flattering light many held dragonrider's in. The brownrider's open study of him left little doubt in Ekshan's mind about how the night would end and he was feeling rather pleased if also a little nervous about it. K'tir did not hide who he was and Ekshan envied his apparent freedom to be with whomever he wanted. Ever mindful of his surroundings Ekshan gave those nearby a quick glance for any disapproving looks. He was still Gabrin's assistant and had to be careful of his behavior, in public at least.

Ekshan dipped his head in wordless agreement with K'tir's suggestion. He wasn't sure how much common ground they had, beyond the obvious, but he was willing to find out what more there could be. Even if all they did was talk, the conversation was unlikely to be boring, so far K'tir had proved to be a willing fount of information. If Ekshan was lucky enough to become a candidate, knowing a rider could be beneficial and would definitely put him on a level above most of his fellow candidates. He knew from the hatching he'd gone to watch that most had simply been plucked off various cotholds and had almost no clue about Weyrlife or dragons. Knowledge was important and he was always willing to accumulate a little more.

"I can't think of many better ways to spend an evening, though I'm not sure if one evening will be enough time to satisfy all my curiosity." It had been unfortunate that the hatching had only allowed him to scratch the surface of his interest in dragons and the Weyr, and K'tir. With an entire evening laid out before them there seemed little reason to rush things along. It was unlikely Gabrin would be home until later the following morning, giving Ekshan plenty of time to "question" K'tir. "I do know a spot that should be quieter." He offered, getting to put to use his knowledge of the area as he moved off through the crowd, holding his breath until he heard the telltale tread of following footsteps.

Pausing only long enough to procure some wine, being Gabrin's assistant did have its uses and meant he could get a bottle of something palatable, Ekshan moved confidently through the gardens. The sounds of the crowds faded slightly as they left the larger groups behind. Finally he nodded toward a convenient bench beneath one of the garden's older trees, large enough to give the illusion of propriety while still providing the means to slide in closer should the desire arise. "Will this do?" Ekshan asked, nibbling nervously at his lower lip as he turned to gauge K'tir expression. He'd considered just taking K'tir back to the hold, but he was neither confident or drunk enough for such a bold move. The area wasn't quiet deserted, a few smaller groups and couples seeking to escape the larger crowd wandered nearby, but it was still fairly private for being turn's end.

“I’m sure I can be convinced to make more evenings happen until your… curiosity… is sated,” K’tir drawled as he fell in step behind Ekshan. Given the younger man’s continued interest and how quickly he jumped at the chance to keep them talking, K’tir was convinced he had now found some plans for the night. He was still interested in seeing if some of his fellow dragonriders would make a scene and wind up horribly embarrassed the following day but that was a side note to what was becoming the main focal point.

A glance around the area that he had been led to showed it was indeed quieter but not so entirely cut off Ekshan’s reputation, whatever it may be, would be tarnished. For all intents and purposes, it would currently appear like he was only talking to a dragonrider and possibly keeping him out of trouble by doing so. “It’ll do; for now,” K’tir sat down on the bench and held out his hand until the bottle of wine was handed over. He took a moment to quietly refresh their glasses and set the bottle on the bench between them. “To new friends,” he toasted with a clink of his glass to Ekshan’s before tossing back half the contents. It was so good having excellent wine again! He managed with what they concocted in Katila, especially when their supplies they stole from the North dwindled, but now that they had constant access to proper wine once more, K’tir had no desire to go back.

“Now that you have me alone and the music isn’t quite as loud, what other questions do you have for me?” Both at the Hatching and now, the music and guests were loud and full of merriment which made it harder to discuss too much without talking just as loudly. K’tir was naturally soft spoken and hated having to raise his voice to begin with but Ekshan had been a cute face with natural enthusiasm that he had been willing to converse under such circumstances. Now, with the Harpers and their instruments more background noise than focal point, they could talk in a more relaxed manner and begin to truly understand what each other was after.

K'tir's naughtily drawled words gave Ekshan a pleasantly forbidden thrill, making him glad he was facing away from the man so he could allow a pleased smirk to pull up one corner of his mouth. Things were progressing even better than he'd dared hope for. He'd never have dreamed of being able to maintain the interest of a dragonrider and had initial set his sights on bedding someone in a similar position as he was in, or find another suppressed young man to initiate as Gabrin had him.

Ekshan placed the wine bottle into the proffered hand, settling down onto the bench as K'tir refilled their glasses. "To new friends." He echoed K'tir, one eyebrow arching upward as the man downed half the contents of his glass in one go. Ekshan had become familiar with the stuff they'd created in the South and was pleased that K'tir seemed to have maintained an appreciation for the more subtle Northern vintages. Not that he'd known much about wine before Gabrin had taken him in, but he was never the less pleased he'd learned enough to chose something enjoyable. He studied K'tir over the rim of his glass as he took a long sip, once again glad he'd bumped into the brownrider. The Hatching, while providing an introduction had been neither the time nor place to really get to know each other. There had been too much going one and Ekshan had been kept busy playing the role of dutiful assistant to Gabrin.

Maybe it was the wine or K'tir's proximity, but Ekshan was suddenly having a difficult time settling on a question. There was so much he wanted to know that it was hard to focus on just one, and sitting right next to the handsome brownrider wasn't actually helping matters. His eyes followed the passing of a trio of young men as they moved past, using their passing to buy himself a little more time. Ekshan rubbed an idle finger over the smooth surface of his glass, watching how the liquid inside caught and reflected the soft light from nearby glows and flickering torch light. "I have been wondering why the Weyr decided to return North now?" He asked once the group had pasted, settling his gaze back on K'tir. He wasn't even sure if the Brownrider would know or want to share why or simply give him some politically correct answer. Either one would give him a little more insight into how the Weyr worked.

“Several reasons really,” K’tir started, not at all put off by the question or worried about what he was and wasn’t allowed to say. As far as he was aware, there really hadn’t been any restrictions though he was certain anything that made S’kef seem like a kind man only looking out for the best interests of everyone would be encouraged. Good thing S’kef and J’ver weren’t around right then! Well, he assumed J’ver wasn’t lurking around him since he never proved to be of much interest to the greenrider and at such an event, he was likely assigned some more prominent parties.

“Most of us didn’t want to stay South, especially for as long as we had. When the landslide wiped out so much, it became clear we needed to relocate.” The words were calm and even but the rest of his wine was tossed back immediately after. He wasn’t plagued by nightmares of that night like some Katlians were but some memories still needed a bit of wine to wash them down. The empty glass was set down beside the bottle and K’tir turned his full gaze on Ekshan, “some of us were lonely as well.” He said nothing else on the matter but the look in his eyes and the slight quirk of a brow said it all. Ekshan had never been asked his preferences but K’tir assumed he liked men to some degree. He was interested in Weyr life and the freedom it held, Gabrin seemed to have some sort of hold on him, and he had yet to run away from the flirting. All good signs in K’tir’s books.

He was barely keeping himself in check as he waited for a response or reaction. If they were at the Weyr, Ekshan would be pushed up against the tree with K’tir’s mouth and hands on him. It was only because he respected the man’s station and the need for secrecy that some of his lovers had that K’tir kept his hands to himself, despite the increasing flush and bliss the wine was creating in him.

Ekshan sipped at his wine, more to keep his mouth and hands busy with something other than K'tir, which was very tempting. The other man's words provided a further distraction and Ekshan found himself nodding as K'tir shared about the Weyr's reasons for returning North. He'd heard about the landslide and the number of lives, both human and dragon it had claimed. It seemed that despite it's initial beauty there were plenty of dangers in the South as well. K'tir's tone was calm, but his actions spoke of a deeper pain that had yet to fully heal.

His gaze followed the Brownrider's empty glance, lifting back to K'ti'r face at his mention of some of them being lonely. Ekshan felt his face flush a hot red and quickly shifted his gaze back to his glass which he swiftly drained. He was familiar with such looks from Gabrin to know what they meant and where they usually led. He still had enough of the innocent hold boy left in him to flush at K'tir's attention and what his word's implied. Though he would have liked to show the other man just how he felt he was too controlled to give into that desire, at least out in public. K'tir's reputation may not have been ruined by such actions becoming public knowledge, but his surely would be.

Tempting as it was it was to respond to the intensity of K'tir's gaze, Ekshan contented himself with waiting to fully express himself someplace private. He didn't trust himself to be able be remain discreet for much longer though. The thought of being with someone other than Gabrin was a strange mix of exhilaration and terror and if not for the wine he probably would have scuttled off long ago. "It can be lonely here as well at times." He said breathily as he slid his empty glass next to the wine bottle. Loniness had become his best friend before Gabrin, though even he failed to keep it at bay all the time. Gabrin was a busy man and Ekshan was mostly just his current and rather well kept diversion.

He looked back up at K'tir, taking a quick breath. Damn it, it was easier to feign self control when he wasn't looking at the other man. "Though I suppose as a dragonrider you are never truly lonely." His voice touched with uncharacteristic longing for such a deep and endless bond that only death could break. He envied the Northern candidates lucky enough to be searched, so far the Weyr was playing it safe and selecting candidates from outlying cotholds. Avoiding the possibility of angering the more well off holders by "stealing away" any of their sons or daughters.

K’tir laughed at the reply he wasn’t expecting but really should have. He felt the warmth of Ghaeth’s love wrap around him through their bond and smiled as his silly dragon flopped down and let some of the younger kids still running loose climb on him. He really hoped they didn’t have paint handy like the ‘brats always seemed to. “Very true. Even when you do want to be alone, you never truly are with a dragon always in the back of your mind, though some are stronger than others at blocking the link when needed.”

The wine was eyed once more and K’tir finally picked up the bottle and leisurely poured more into both glasses. There wasn’t any reason to let it go to waste! Switching out the bottle for his glass, K’tir tried to sip it to enjoy the fine flavour but his growing inebriation was making it a bit harder to tell the good from the bad and be a true connoisseur. “But having a dragon is still different than being with another human,” he finally picked up the train of thought again and regarded Ekshan thoughtfully. The man was interested in dragons and the Weyr life but some facts of it would likely still bother even the most open-minded of them all. It was still even a bit weird to him, truth be told. “Ghaeth’s flightlust affects me but my own lust can leave him relaxed and in just as great of a mood.”

K’tir frowned as he started to lose the point he was trying to make and drank more wine, hoping to find the answer in his glass. He did, to a degree, as he gave up with a one-shoulder shrug and grin at Ekshan, “anyway, other men and women are always a welcomed sight.”

He contemplated K'tir's answer, staring off with a vaguely distant and wine muddled gaze. He'd wondered about the bond between dragon and rider, even more so after the hatching and getting to see the moment of impression for himself. All who'd impressed had looked intensely happy, though a few had looked a little overwhelmed by it as well. Being private by nature he wasn't sure how easily he'd adjust to the constant presence of another being, but the benefits of being a dragonrider seemed to out weigh any discomfort that might come along with such a complex bond. Not that he had any real reason to worry about such things just yet. He wasn't even a candidate, just one of what was likely a multitude of young men wishing to become one. Ghaeth had remembered him though and that gave him hope. Surely the dragon wouldn't have remembered someone who had no possibility of impressing.

Ekshan was drawn back to the present by K'tir's movements, not bothering to object as his glass was refilled. He was already well on his way to becoming well and truly drunk, but didn't want to look rude by refusing a refill. Luckily Ekshan wasn't the sort that became rowdy when he'd had too much, though many of his inhibitions slipped away he didn't start dancing on tables or doing anything too embarrassing. He was relieved when K'tir continued his explanation since it was becoming harder to come up with questions that didn't focus on getting the man to Gabrin's hold. Not that the topic of lust didn't anything to help him focus on anything else.

He sipped once again at his wine, his expression almost comical in how seriously he considered the Brownrider's words. "I never gave much thought to how a rider's lust must affect their dragon. It's probably good that the affect isn't as intense the other way around. Could be rather awkward in situations like this one." Ekshan made a broad gesture to the gather crowd, sloshing some wine over his fingers. He frowned in mild annoyance and took the glass in his other hand as he sucked clean each wine soaked finger.

"I suppose you can have your pick tonight." He resumed the conversation as he met K'tir's gaze. "Has anyone caught your fancy?" He tried to feign indifferent curiosity, but his heart pounded to rapidly for that to be true. If K'tir did had his eye on someone else tonight Ekshan would be crushed.

Ekshan’s innocence really was impressive; and a turn on. The way he sucked his fingers clean had no ulterior motive that K’tir see but it was done in such a way that it easily grabbed his attention and held him intrigued. He did, however, keep his hands to himself and held off offering to clean the digits for Ekshan since they were still somewhat in public. Ekshan had a rather nice position in Telgar’s hierarchy and it wouldn’t do to ruin it by having him be seen kissing dragonriders.

When the question came about who he wanted for the night, restraint did seem a lot harder to keep a hold of. A languid grin slid into place as K’tir threw back the last of his wine and set the glass down once more. “I can have my pick within reason,” he corrected, still grinning. S’kef had made it clear that they were to behave to some degree and sleeping with married wives and virgin daughters were a bit off the menu for the evening. Spoiled lordlings’ naïve and cute assistants, however, seemed to be fair game. Not that K’tir really cared all that much even if Ekshan was to be left alone.

Deciding their questions and playing coy had gone on long enough, K’tir slowly leaned in closer to Ekshan so he could whisper against an ear, “I want you writhing beneath me in pleasure, Ekshan, and I’m barely able to keep from kissing you right here and now. I’m too drunk to fly so I can steal you away to my home so I suggest if you know of a vacant bed behind a locked door, you lead us there in the next few minutes.” It’d be so easy to lead him over to Ghaeth and head back to the Weyr but K’tir never wanted to put his dragon in danger and with his mind in a foggy state, he avoided flying as much as possible. Therefore, he hoped Gabrin’s assistant had a sturdy bed and that he didn’t live too far away.

His fingers were still slightly sticky, which irratated his fastidious nature. He would have appreciated a hot bath and sharing one with K'tir would be an absolute delight. Such thoughts while entertaining were also rather dangerous in his current state. He was quickly reaching a point where it was difficult to distinguish between good and bad choices. Gabrin may not have carried about what Ekshan got up to while he was away, but Ekshan knew a lack of discretion on his part would not be rewarded.

Ekshan shrugged off K'tir's correcting, deciding within reasons still gave the brownrider a wide selection to choose from. Too wide for the younger man's liking really. He would have preferred to have been the only option available, though part of him also liked the idea of K'tir choosing him despite having other options available to him. K'tir's continued patience with him was rewardable, even if Ekshan was almost completely unaware of the affect he was having on the other man. He still struggled to believe that he could be desired by anyone. Even Gabrin's attentions still had a way of surprising him.

K'tir was proving to be just as surprising as he leaned in, his warm breath sending a delicious shiver down Ekshan's spine. The Brownrider's words took a second to sink in as they painted an all to vivid picture within the younger man's mind. Ekshan felt a little light headed and was unsure whether to blame the wine or K'tir for his current state. "I." Ekshan swallowed, not daring to meet the other man's gaze out of fear he'd loose his tenuous grasp on his remaining self control. "Gabrin's isn't far." He managed to rasp, trembling from the rush of desire K'tir's words and nearness caused. Knowing he needed space before he or more likely K'tir lost control, Ekshan stood, wavering slightly before he found his balance. He wet his lips, giving K'tir a wanting look before he spoke. "Follow me." He murmured, making sure K'tir was doing just that before setting off at as quick a pace as he could manage. The evening was still young and Gabrin was going to be gone until morning, plenty of time to enjoy K'tir's company.

K’tir wanted to pat Ekshan on the head; he was so adorably innocent! It was clear the man didn’t do this often but desire overrode nerves and he managed to get the invitation out anyway. He was already glad he didn’t grab a fellow rider to spend the night with as he watched Ekshan start to walk away, gaze firmly on the man’s ass. There was enough wine left in the bottle that K’tir didn’t want to see it wasted and he quickly grabbed it up before following his soon-to-be lover away from the party and into the town.

He had no idea where the little lordling called home and twice he felt the trek was too long and nearly threw Ekshan against a wall to ravish then and there. The man’s skittishness and S’kef’s warning to not scare the holders more than they already were held him off yet again. Besides, he was pretty certain he had made a comment about how he was great at discretion and there wasn’t a need to make a lie out of it.

A nod of approval was given as they stood outside Gabrin’s home but that was as far as K’tir got for commenting on location and decoration for as soon as they were inside and the door closed behind them, he had Ekshan pinned against the wall. “Finally,” he growled before kissing Ekshan hard on the lips, his passion fueled both by need and wine.

“A bed?” Eloquent sentences weren’t needed, nor would they have come out all that clearly anyway with the way K’tir kept pressing their mouths together and letting his tongue explore when it wasn’t needed for a few words. He finally allowed some space so Ekshan could lead them to a bed but K’tir stopped him at the doorway to a small room that was clearly Ekshan’s and found his ability to speak properly again for a moment.

“No. Gabrin’s gone for the night, right? Time for you to play lord while you ride me in his bed,” K’tir stepped in closer and began unfastening his lover’s pants and whispered, “my lord Ekshan.”
