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 screeches, roars and bellows of randy greens were not a sound that caused notice or interest to Casa, and indeed, coupled with the early hour, she did no more than roll over and snuggle back down into her blankets. Sighing softly and planning to enjoy another several hours of good sleep and sweet dreams, when she realised – with great disgust – that Thallyath was peering over the edge of the weyr with deep curiosity. Would you go back to sleep. You’ve seen green flights before, Casa grumbled, poking her dragon mentally with irritation. It is not a green, Thallyath responded, her tone curious as her emotions, It is Nadioth.

It took Casa a disgusting amount of time – and another dragon’s echoing bellow – to realise that Nadioth was a gold dragon. Thallyath was a gold dragon. Gold dragons couldn’t share sky space. Casa fell out of bed in her sudden flurry to vacate the comfortable mass of blankets, bumping her elbow sharply on her bedside table and crying out in pain. Scrabbling to her feet, Casa dashed around madly, throwing on pants and a shirt (both of which were rumpled and worn) and shoved her feet into boots. “Thally!” She cried, as there was a loud round of knocks on her door. “We’re going! We’re going!” She cried, not bothering to answer it, as she threw her riding leathers on her confused dragon. Whatever is the fuss? I want to watch! “You can’t!” Casa gasped, scrambling onto her dragon. “We have to leave!”

Thallyath leaped from the edge of the weyr, rising swiftly into the pre-dawn air – still intently watching the feasting gold and the milling male dragons – before she was forced to pay attention to Casa as the girl gave instructions for… Benden Weyr? It’s empty! Exactly! Casa replied, as Thallyath took them between with a woosh of cold air. I don’t know the routine of the other golds in the other Weyrs, Casa admitted. Usually, Thallyath would have scolded her for not being informed, but the young gold dragon was too confused, her quizzical poke for Casa to explain giving her away.

“You can’t be around a gold dragon when she Flies, love,” Casa explained, sliding off Thallyath after the young gold landed in the empty Weyrbowl. “You might be prompted to Fly too…” Casa fell off, as if that explained everything.

I don’t understand. Thallyath frowned. Why can I not Fly if I want to?

“Can you see yourself sharing the bronzes with Nadioth?” Casa replied dryly, raising an eyebrow, staring at her dragon. “What if they chased her instead of you?”

Thallyath snorted, they wouldn’t dare.

“That is exactly why golds can’t Fly at the same time, in the same sky. And since I don’t know the routine of the golds at Fort and Telgar, we had to come here.” Casa cringed as Thallayth took that opportunity to scold her rider for not being up to date on all the important information she should be, and grumbled to herself as she peered around the empty Weyr. Casa sighed, wondering how long Nadioth’s flight would take, and how she’d find out it had finished. She hadn’t thought to tell anyone where she was going. Thallayth took that opportunity to scold her further, and Casa flopped onto the ground with a groan.

The screech of dragons joining a Flight was what woke T’ryn, not the lust of his dragon. That wasn’t even something he registered at first as he came to consciousness and tried to figure out which green decided to be obnoxious this time with the early wake up call. It’s a gold, not a green. It took a moment, but his dragon’s softly spoken explanation finally penetrated his groggy mind and T’ryn slowly sat up and looked in the direction of where his dragon was also sitting, though he couldn’t see the great beast.

“Are… you’re… Sy…” T’ryn didn’t know how to express himself or ask the question that was repeating through his head. Actually, there were two questions but neither one seemed able to form on his tongue. Luckily, Syrendryth was attentive enough to catch the questions in his mind and he heard his dragon shift, almost as if he was also uncomfortable despite him being one of the most confident males – dragon or human – he knew.

It’s Nadioth and while I’d like to chase… you aren’t ready yet.

T’ryn was having a hard time pegging down one specific emotion to feel. He was relieved and it scared that it was Nadioth and not, for example, Thallyath, which also disappointed him a bit. Her blonde rider was cute and much closer to his age. He was also confused over why whether or not he was ready mattered. He was already dressed for bed so he was pretty much dressed for a Flight. Why wouldn’t he be ready?

Oh.

“You mean I’m not ready for flights.” That was true. Who was? He could only imagine what it must be like to be a rider of a female dragon and how intense that fear would be. T’ryn was certain he’d be ready for flights once he, well, once he took care of that pesky virginity issue that seemed to be such a big deal in Weyrs.

T’ryn debated going back to bed but he could feel Syrendryth’s lust coming through their bond, despite how much the dragon was trying to dampen it. In that moment, T’ryn felt beyond loved. His dragon wanted to chase but he didn’t dare because his rider was a mess and not ready for such an event yet.

Making up his mind, T’ryn jumped out of bed and quickly tossed on clothes and then his riding leathers. When he met up with Syrendryth a few minutes later, he gave the bronze a hug and then set about getting the riding gear in place.

Ten minutes later and they were ready to go, though they waited on their ledge until Nadioth had led her admirers a bit further away from them. T’ryn didn’t want to risk getting caught up in the chase nor did he want Nadioth to think they were after her and get them injured in the process.

They had agreed to head up to the Benden area where his aunt lived but it was far too early for an unannounced visit so they’d kill some time exploring. T’ryn didn’t want to admit it to anyone, not even N’mor even though they were partners in a lot of crimes, but he wanted to see Benden Weyr. The closed Weyrs were off limits but he had been slowly making his way closer, exploring the land and taking in the sights. His dad had lived in that Weyr before the plague, even if it was for less than a year, but T’ryn wanted to know more about it. It was a part of his family’s history!

Since it was so early, they decided to beeline right to the Weyr with the idea they’d just circle around the edges but not land. At least, that was the plan before they both spotted a familiar golden hide. “Is that Thallyath? Is she okay? Where’s Casa?” T’ryn started to worry that something must have happened if the golden pair had landed inside the Weyr and it didn’t alleviate when they started to circle lower and he spotted Casa flopped on the ground.

The girl is likely fine. Thallyath would be having a fit if she wasn’t. But I’ll land if it’ll make you feel better. T’ryn patted his dragon in thanks and barely waited for him to land before sliding down his side.

“Casa! Are you okay? What are you doing here?” T’ryn knelt beside her and resisted the urge to check her forehead for a fever. He settled for visibly taking in her appearance for any sign of an injury. He started to worry that perhaps they got caught up in the Flight when they tried to leave and he glanced at Thallyath for any sign she was hurt or angry.

Both Casa and Thallyath startled visibly when Syrendryth landed nearby, the usually observant dragon being too busy hassling her rider to take note of their company, and Casa dramatically replying, one arm thrown across her eyes so she didn't actually see company arrive, only heard the soft flomp of a dragon landing followed by the sudden sound of a barrage of questions from a familiar voice. Casa dropped her arm, sitting up so fast she very nearly hit her head with T'ryn's, barely managing to stop inches from his face. She blinked at him with wide eyes.

“Um, hi,” she said, leaning back a bit to put a better distance between them and collecting her legs up under herself, folding them to one side in a way that had Thallyath humming quietly in approval. Casa ignored her, frowning up at T'ryn. “I'm fine,” she offered, confused by the question. “Oh,” his second question came forward in her mind, and she smiled but also blushed. “We had to leave the Weyr, because of Nadioth, but I don't know the routine of the other golds in Telgar and Fort, so I didn't want to go there in case we went from one Flight to another. So we went here, I guess,” she looked around and then back at T'ryn. She shrugged. “Probably we should have gone to Katila, but I guess we weren't thinking much.” Thallyath snorted loudly, and Casa tossed her a dirty look.

Turning back to T'ryn, Casa smiled teasingly, “Didn't Syrendryth want to chase?”

T’ryn froze when Casa suddenly sat up and nearly knocked heads with him. His eyes went wide at her close proximity and let out the breath he had been holding when she leaned back. He shot a look at his dragon, deciding his rapid heartbeat was a combination of worry over the goldrider and the residual lust from Syrendryth. That has nothing to do with me now that we’re out in the fresh air and away from her pheromones.

Do you always have to be so practical?

Yes.

T’ryn let go of the impending argument and turned a relieved smile on Casa when he heard she was fine and why they had chosen to go to Benden. He knew goldriders had to leave when another took to the sky but he had never really thought about where they would go. It made sense to go to one of the empty Weyrs to ensure maximum space was provided. What if they chose a nearby Hold and that still wasn’t far enough away to appease the gold in her Flight? He nodded his agreement that Katila was probably the best choice, especially since retired dragonriders were there and would know what to do in case of an emergency and to simply entertain the currently exiled golden pairs.

“Eh?” Once more blue eyes went wide as the questioning was turned back around on him. He rocked back on his heels until his butt connected heavily with the ground. As he crossed his legs under him, T’ryn still didn’t know the best way to answer that question and rubbed at the back of his neck even as a faint blush rose in his cheeks. “Well… yes, he did but,” he glanced again at Syrendryth, looking for some assistance but his dragon simply sat primly, taking in the ladies and almost daring them to say something negative about their choices.

“Oh, all right. It would have been our first Flight and we came to the decision it would be better to leave than to partake and my aunt lives in this region but it’s too early to visit and I’ve wanted to see Benden Weyr and well… yeah,” T’ryn realized he was starting to ramble thanks to how flustered he suddenly was. With any luck, Casa would latch onto that instead of figuring out that he was still a virgin. He still readied himself for a burst of giggles at his expense though.

Casa giggled when T'ryn flopped back onto his rear, her smile teasing and bright, green eyes sparkling in amusement at his motion. It wasn't every day she got to get such an extreme response out of anyone but Thallyath, and the golden dragon wasn't inclined to physically display her shock at something Casa said or did – no, she much preferred to give Casa a headache! Casa blinked when T'ryn answered, apparently looking to his dragon for help. She frowned, her cheerful expression fading away behind the furrowed eyebrows and she tilted her head.

“Oh,” she replied, flushing slightly and dropping her gaze to her knees. It didn't take a genius to figure out what it was that T'ryn wasn't saying. Casa wrung her fingers together and grimaced, looking up when her bronze companion finally came to a faltering end of his ramble. “I guess it is weird, us being Weyrbrats and not being... flighty.” Her nose was still scrunched up as she looked up to meat T'ryn's eyes. The Weyrwoman – especially the mentor – had really been pushing her to get some experience before Thallyath decided to Fly. Casa wanted to, but she also, well, there just wasn't anyone that took her fancy. Not after her childhood crush had died in the landslide... Faranth knows she couldn't bear the thought of that kind of pain again, to lose someone so close and special.

It doesn't need to be someone special, Thallyath put in primly, tilting her head to look at Casa with a single judgemental eye. He simply needs to be proper. Respectable. Worthy. Of course, in the dragon's opinion, that didn't leave a very big pool of candidates. Part of why she insisted she hadn't taken to the sky yet; there simply wasn't anyone good enough to catch her. Casa rolled her eyes, threw a dirty look at her dragon, but didn't elaborate to T'ryn. “You have an aunt around here?” she asked instead, eyebrows arching curiously.

T’ryn wasn’t sure what surprised him more—that Casa didn’t laugh at him or that she admitted that she was also lacking in the flight count. He wouldn’t have said it aloud, but he would have bet she wasn’t a virgin. She was pretty and got along with everyone, so it stood to reason that she had had at least one boyfriend and got a bit intimate with him. Then again, maybe she had had boyfriends but just didn’t see the interest in flights.

Syrendryth sighed and replied dryly to T’ryn’s internal babbling, I don’t know… I think she’s still flighty. T’ryn bit his lower lip to keep from laughing and drawing attention to the judgemental comments of his dragon.

Thankfully, Casa didn’t seem to notice and took an interest in his aunt, which T’ryn gladly latched onto in a bid to help change the subject. “I do! She’s R’nd’s older sister and she’s amazing. She’s so cool and I can see why my dad idolizes her and I think even B’jin does too,” T’ryn laughed softly as he thought about the way the greenrider seemed to hang onto her every word and indulged her with stories and well-timed questions. “I have some cousins through her as well but I’m not as fond of them. It’s also where my youngest half-brother lives. R’nd arranged for Benden and his mom to stay with Aunt Eridella. Volfetti never took to the Weyr life,” and apparently her family from before being kidnapped to the South had moved on without her and she had nowhere else to go. He was so proud of the family he came from with their desire to always help everyone they could.

Then again, “I also have an uncle. He’s the lord of the family sea hold now. We don’t see him much since he’s not a fan of dragonriders and dad doesn’t seem to be a huge fan of his either. It’s a gorgeous place though! It must have been hard for dad to give it up but I can totally understand the allure of dragons.” A wistful look appeared as T’ryn thought about the seaside home, and wondered, not for the first time, what it would have been like to grow up in such a place.

“Maybe I can take you to both sometime! My aunt would love to meet you and we could just fly over my uncle’s, since I think it’s prettier from above anyway.”

Casa listened with wide eyes as T’ryn babbled about his extended family. She didn’t have a lot of family… any family, really. Well, that wasn’t really true – her blueriding father had claimed her when she was a child and she had half siblings by the man floating around, but she didn’t have any family like T’ryn did! She didn’t have amazing aunts and unpleasant cousins. Casa shook off her thoughts and nodded in understanding when Volfetti came up. The woman was practically a legend among the population from Katila, what with how she’d tried to escape and how she’d hated every moment of Katila, and how she’d named her son Benden, and then opened the flood gate for women and children to come to R’nd to claim him as a parent. She giggled. “Poor R’nd,” she tittered, imagining the kind of things Volfetti might inform his sister about him.

If her eyes hadn’t already been so wide, they would have widened more at the announcement that T’ryn’s uncle was a Lord, though it sounded like he was a minor one, he was still a Lord! To a country bumpkin like Casa, that sounded as awe-inspiring to her as many holder folk found the idea of Impressing to a gold dragon. She licked her lips, and tilted her head. “That’s so cool!” Even if he did not like him, or get along with him, it was still cool! She smiled teasingly, “Look at you! Bronzerider, Lordling nephew,” she stuck her tongue out with good nature and giggled.

“Oh! I’d like that!” Casa breathed out the words, not much above a whisper, looking awestruck at the idea. Thallyath couldn’t even bitch about it, because it was part of her requirement as a goldrider to be aware of the land and layout of Pern, even if the part in question wasn’t in her own region; she could end up in any Weyr at any point in time! It was good to know the layout of the world she lived in! Casa beamed, pleased with the argument she had come up with before Thallyath could even dash her hope.

T’ryn laughed but blushed under the playful teasing. He was never the one who wanted to draw attention to himself, which was probably why he also didn’t want to aim for Weyrleader. Wingleader was more than enough rank and attention for him and it’d be easier for him to pass everything off to his Second if he ever wanted to escape from it for a short time. But to have it pointed out that he was a bronzerider and technically in line to inherit a Hold if about ten or so people suddenly died made it stand out all the more that he was kind of privileged in the eyes of both Weyrfolk and Holders. “I don’t think I’m that special. But maybe I should start sucking up to my lordling cousins for potential future diplomatic situations.”

That actually was something to consider. One day, he liked to think, there would be enough dragons to populate all of the Weyrs once more and Benden would need a leader. Maybe N’mor would get it and T’ryn knew he’d follow instantly given they were best friends and connected in so many ways he didn’t even think he could explain if someone asked. But he would have family connections that could help them out upon getting the Weyr set up and if they ever had a rough winter. It really was something to consider, though he vaguely wondered if that was also horrible of him to strengthen such bonds for such reasons. He’d have to ask some of the older and wiser riders about it. The ex-riders would know given some of them used to be Weyrleaders.

At Casa’s excitement to see his extended homes, T’ryn let go of some of his thoughts and worries and smiled brightly. “Awesome! I’ll let you know the next time I’m invited and allowed to bring someone. I can’t wait to show you some of the cool spots I found near my uncle’s. One overlooks the ocean and you can watch the sunset over it! Another one overlooks the Hold and you can watch everyone go about their business. It’s like peeking into their lives without them adjusting to your presence and acting differently.” People-watching was a great activity though he wondered if it would actually be something Casa would like, but with two of them hanging out on the ledges no one else could reach without a dragon, he was certain they’d still have fun talking or maybe stealing a nap in the sun.

“Oh! One sec,” he had been so worried about her when they first landed and then caught up in talking, that T’ryn forgot he had actually brought provisions for his morning adventure. He doubted Casa would have had time to pack like he did given she had more reason to leave as quickly as possible and decided if they were going to hang out together until it seemed safe enough to go home, then he could share. After retrieving his bag from Syrendryth, T’ryn pulled out a skein of water, a couple of apples, and a few pieces of bread leftover from the previous night. It wasn’t much but he hadn’t been planning to feed an army. “It’s just water and the food is nothing all that fancy, but help yourself if you’re hungry. I figure we should wait two, maybe three hours for the Flight to end and everything to settle down again.”

Casa giggled, “You never know when that could be useful!” she agreed, amused at the idea of a bronzerider sucking up to anyone, especially T’ryn. She had always imagined him to be rather stoic, really, like his friend N’mor. Those two were about as inseparable as a Hatchling from its first feed, and it was definitely hard to imagine N’mor sucking up to anyone, or anything. Despite the fact that their dragons all came from the same clutch, Casa felt like she really didn’t know any of the men who had Impressed at the same time she had. She blamed that on Thallyath being gold; most of her lessons had been spent with the other goldriders, and then she’d been further isolated when everyone moved North and she and Thallyath had yet to learn how to between. Being a goldrider had some serious drawbacks! Why couldn’t Thallyath have been green?!

Because green just isn’t my shade, dear. He’s speaking again.

Casa blinked and looked back to T’ryn as he took up talking again, babbling on excitedly about his home and the placed he could show her. “That sounds fun!” Casa grinned, delighted by the pictures he’d painted and the ideas he had planted in her mind. It would be getting Thallyath to go along that would the challenge. Casa threw her dragon a sly look. Then again, if she insisted on being a pain in the rear, Casa could always hitch a ride cuddled up behind T’ryn on his big strong bronze… Thallyath’s eyes flashed in anger and she snarled, partly at Casa and partly at Syrendryth. Casa sniggered, hiding it behind her hand, and Thallyath snorted angrily at her rider.

Nodding, Casa helped herself to a piece of fruit. “Thank you,” her voice was sincere. She hadn’t thought to bring food, and she’d been asleep before Thallyath roused her to watch the Flight they couldn’t be around for. “That sounds like a good idea,” she agreed, though the prospect of hanging out in the lonely, empty Weyr was not very appealing and she stood up, looking around with a sort of sadness. This place had once been filled with people and dragons, and now all it held was the echoes of their presence, long since lost to time. “It’s so… empty,” she said softly, meaning more than just the lack of people and dragons, but the resounding silence that hung over the place.

He hadn’t really paid much attention to the Weyr itself since landing and worrying about Casa and then having fun talking with her. But now that she mentioned it, T’ryn glanced around and noticed how quiet it was and, like she said, empty. It was like a graveyard, and he supposed in some ways it was. How many had died here? So many memories likely haunted the riders and non-riders alike that he wondered how even the current active Weyrs felt alive again and not empty shells. It was a bit unsettling now that he was so acutely aware of his surroundings and what normal sounds were missing and what ones replaced them. “It is… I don’t know what I was expecting when I finally found the courage to come here.”

T’ryn packed up his bundle of food and stood, giving a slight stretch as he did so. “But since we’re here and we have two reasonably responsible dragons with us,” he shot Syrendryth a glance to indicate which dragon he was more making fun of, though his dragon was pointedly ignoring both him and Thallyath. He didn’t have time for gold hissy fits and was careful not to react more than a cautious glance her way to ensure she wasn’t going to attack his human.

“Why don’t we explore a bit? Dad lived here for a bit before the plague but he says he doesn’t remember too much. He was younger than us and only here for several months but I still think he just likes to avoid the topic.” He couldn’t blame R’nd for that. He knew what it was like to lose his home when the landslide hit and wiped out most of Katila. He had barely made it out in one piece – N’mor didn’t and even that haunted him at times – but the new location of Katila just never felt the same and when he snuck back to the old site, it was hard to see what had become of his home and the good memories being crushed by the more recent bad ones.
