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!

It had been Mulrissa’s hope that Bedith would be the sort of gold who clutched maybe once every other turn, but as the sixth month approached it became clear that was not the case. Bedith was getting glowy and inordinately invested in bronzes again, and Rissa had to resign herself to the fact she would have to get through another Hatching.

And it seemed Bedith was developing a rather singular taste in bronzes (if twice could be considered a pattern, but it could easily become a pattern), though Mulrissa wasn’t sure that was a good plan on the gold’s part. Her last Clutch with Syrendryth went so well, after all. Only resulted in more deaths than any other singular Hatching since the Plague. She glanced over at T’ryn, who she had no problems with personally — he was friendly and considerate, the kind of bronzerider the Weyrs could use more of — but even a turn older he was still very young and barely older than Rissa’s own son. And their dragons had a bad track record with murderous children.

’Once’ does not a record make, and that had nothing to do with either of us, Bedith reminded her rider, something she had reiterated multiple times in the past few months. Sometimes hatchlings did poorly, that’s just how it went. It said nothing about either her or Syrendreth.

’Still, couldn’t you have picked someone else this time?’ Rissa asked with a sigh. She still couldn’t look certain people in the face after her dragon’s child had killed their family member, and now she would spend the next few months worrying it would happen again. It was going to be a difficult wait for this Hatching, even if had been a different bronze, but being Syrendreth again just made it worse.

I could have, yes. But I didn’t. The gold said primly. Bedith, in her flawless draconic logic, did not have nearly the same worries as her rider about how her Clutch may turn out — individual eggs were bad, not her, and not any bronze she flew with. And Syrendryth didn’t fawn over Okalinth like the brainless bronze oafs of Telgar. Rissa couldn’t help mentally rolling her eyes.

’Oh no, the bronzes are interested in the unmated senior queen of the Weyr, how unprecedented,’ she thought at her dragon, amused by Bedith’s exacting standards. Bedith grumbled some more about Okalinth and how wishy-washy she was, letting all these different dragons catch her — did she even have standards, Bedith wondered, because she would never allow some of those bronzes to catch her. Mulrissa was of the opinion she was just jealous Okalinth had gotten to them first. She’d rather liked Kovith, after all, until he’d caught Okalinth and it was like the older bronze no longer existed. But Bedith’s complaining about Okalinth’s many partners made a thought occur to Rissa and she almost sat bolt upright, but managed to reduce it to rolling over to look towards where the dragon ledge lay through a wall of rock. ’Bedith, you and Syrendreth aren’t going to be mates are you?’ she asked suddenly concerned she would be seeing a lot more of T’ryn (not that seeing him more was inherently bad! But the context of it…). Bedith snorted.

I do not believe I said that at all, she said, before continuing on about the flaws of Okalinth’s many suitors. She did, however, lean into the bronze she was rather fond of. Rissa frowned in the direction she knew her dragon to be in, still slightly suspicious, before sitting up with a sigh and turning to greet T’ryn.

T'ryn didn't want to move or even open his eyes. Something felt wrong about where he was and why he was already in bed. Someone moving around beside him helped with the suspicion since he had been very single for one very long turn. Syrendryth also felt very pleased with himself and T'ryn shivered a little from the remnants of pleasure the dragon still radiated with. Even with his groggy mind, he knew enough to put together the fact that not only did Syrendryth Chase for the third time, but he won for the second time.

Slowly, the events leading up to the Flight came back to him. They had just returned from bathing the large lump of bronze when the word came that Bedith would soon take to the sky, likely that day. They bickered about and of course he lost and found himself hanging out in Telgar. Besides, T'ryn had to admit to a small piece of him also wanted to prove they could win again and that it wasn't beginner's luck or other excuses he had heard some of the older bronzeriders toss out. He hated that small part of himself, though, since it made him feel like he was demeaning Mulrissa and treating her just as an object to win. Maybe that was part of why he let Syrendryth take control so easily--he didn't want to be a part of the Flight.

He was a part of the aftermath no matter what else happened and since his dragon was smug, T'ryn knew they had bested everyone again. Again, he hated thinking in such a way but the win would help show Syrendryth was a formidable opponent and maybe help their chases with leading a wing someday. Clearly he was a skilled flyer and could train others to be as graceful and cunning.

Another odd thing his addled mind jumped to was showing he could do things without N'mor. Sure, he technically Impressed before N'mor had but it was still at the same Hatching so it barely counted. But N'mor won the first gold Flight he entered and soon after T'ryn followed suit. Even his birthday was a month after N'mor's. N'mor was now mated first, though that wasn't entirely for lack of trying on his own part but T'ryn wondered if people were expecting him to come out with a mate now. He loved N'mor in his own way and maybe he was the only one that noticed all the similarities and compared them regularly, but he was happy to have stepped in another direction, even if it meant having to have awkward conversations with Mulrissa again because he didn't know how to interact with people and then deal with another Hatching that hopefully was a lot better than the first one.

He supposed he couldn't keep pretending to be out of it or it really would get awkward. Blinking the sleep from his eyes, T'ryn glanced around the room letting his eyes adjust before finally sitting up and giving a tiny shy smile to Mulrissa. "Hi," and then, because he couldn't help but tease himself and joke about the situation thanks to his nerves, "I need to work on keeping in touch with someone before sleeping with them again. A dinner before hand at the very least."

Rissa smiled at T’ryn’s greeting, relieved he didn’t seem to be too overwhelmed. He’d definitely been a bit overwhelmed last turn, but there’d been an entire turn between then and now, and he was probably a bit more used to Flights or sex or both. Hopefully both.

“Hi,” she said, sitting up and grabbing the nearest blanket to throw around her shoulders — more because it was chilly for an early summer night than out of any real sense of modesty. “If Bedith keeps Flying in the late afternoon or evening, lunch may be a better option.” Dinner might not make it to being beforehand with Bedith. Not that Mulrissa really thought T’ryn meant it literally, but playing along seemed the best option. Though if Syrendryth was planning on chasing and was feeling confidant, who knew.

“Speaking of dinner though, I could do with some. I could probably get someone to bring something up if you wanted? Goldrider perks.” Rissa shrugged. More like she had a friend or two who would be amenable to helping her with dinner if Bedith asked them, considering she’d just had a Flight and all. Most people understood gold Flights to be intense for the rider, especially considering practically everyone at the Weyr could feel the Flight at least a little bit. Not that Mulrissa liked throwing her weight around ever, but she was tired and Bedith was lazy and content and she didn’t really want to have to go anywhere yet. Whether T’ryn wanted to stay or not was up to him. Rissa didn’t mind either option. She’d eat alone perfectly happily, and what she knew of T’ryn from last turn’s Flight and Hatching said he was decent company, if he always seemed a bit awkward about everything, so she wouldn’t complain either way. He may not want to have dinner in the weyr of the older goldrider he’d just slept with, and Rissa couldn’t blame him for that either.

"Lunch... I'll keep that in mind," T'ryn smiled, grateful that Mulrissa was being so chill about the whole thing and going along with his silliness. Not that he really expected anything else since she had been so level-headed the first time. The first time... he didn't even want to think about that as it brought up memories of how much of a mess he was and the mess he made with N'mor. It also pointed out with rather large signs that Mulrissa was now the proud owner of the title of the person T'ryn had slept with the most. As an eighteen year old weyrbrat turned bronzerider, that was probably a shocking statistic to everyone else. Even more shocking was the fact that he'd only had sex four times; twice from winning a Flight, once from post-Flight confusion mixed with too much wine, and once from accidentally drinking literal liquid courage with Casa.

But right, lunch... "I wouldn't want to further sway favourtism if we had lunch beforehand, though." Then again, it was a better way to spend the day instead of essentially camping out waiting for Bedith to Rise. Thankfully he had avoided R'nd and B'jin in that time. He knew those two would either make comments designed to embarrass him or just give him quiet looks that screamed they knew why he was there and what he was about to get up to. That really was a huge downside to Flights, win or lose.

"I'd be okay with dinner afterwards. I haven't had anything since breakfast since it's been a day all about Syrendryth with bathing and Flights, apparently. But I don't want to be a bother. I can go get us something." While he was pretty okay with someone waiting on them--mostly because he was wiped out and his limbs felt like wet noodles--T'ryn wasn't sure he really wanted someone coming to the weyr. Then again, why was he worried about one person seeing them together after the Flight when his suggestion would bring him right through the dining cavern and crossing paths with a lot more people? He blamed his dragon for not thinking clearly.

Or the fact that you're too kind.

I am n...fine. I'm kind and want to help. Still your fault I didn't think of the consequences.

She likely won't let you anyway. Stop worrying, especially since we're winners with nothing to be ashamed of.

The comment about favoritism made Mulrissa giggle a little, amused by the idea and feeling Bedith’s contempt at the idea of being influenced in picking a bronze by anything his rider did. “You having lunch with me is extraordinarily unlikely to sway Bedith at all. Unless it’s Syrendryth bringing the lunch, but I somehow don’t think that was the plan. As long as Syrendryth’s feeling confident, I don’t think it’s a problem.” She didn’t want to totally crush T’ryn’s self-esteem if Syrendryth didn’t win, but considering Bedith’s ideal of being the anti-Okalinth in all things including having many fewer partners, unless the bronze terribly offended her or she suddenly became utterly enamored with some other bronze, she was likely to choose Syrendryth again if he chased her.

“They really do claim entire days sometimes, don’t they? I’ve gotten absolutely nothing done today because I didn’t want to get interrupted by Bedith Flying in the middle of anything important or time sensitive. She got a very thorough oiling, though.” Rissa had spent an excessive amount of time oiling each area, and it was completely unnecessary but it had filled the time and Bedith had absolutely glowed. “Really, though, it’s no problem to get something brought up. I’ve had several people already offer to drop something off for me post-Flight the past few days. Who knows, there may be a feast just outside my door.” She laughed, and while she doubted anyone had brought anything the image was enjoyable. A quick request to Bedith to contact a friend who had made such an offer — the gold had no compunctions about bespeaking anyone she wanted something from — and Mulrissa had confirmation that at least some sort of food would be headed their way soon. Samara really was a dear and Rissa would absolutely have to do something soon to thank her.

“Really, it’s no bother. Besides, you’re stuck in Telgar until Bedith and Syrendryth decide they’ve had enough of each other, and you’re pleasant company so I don’t mind at all if you stay a little while.” Gracefully Mulrissa stood up, grabbing a blanket from the floor and wrapping it around her like a shawl as she walked over towards where her dress had ended up, slipping it on over her head and leaving no time for T’ryn to protest staying for dinner again.

“You’re pretty good company as well,” T’ryn confessed, a slight blush colouring his cheeks. It was nice being told he was pleasant company by someone he hadn’t grown up with and because Mulrissa was older, it felt extra nice. But he wasn’t lying. Thinking back on their usually brief interactions from the last Flight through Hatching time, it wasn’t bad. Yes, he had often been nervous about it every time they went to Telgar and he didn’t always know what to say but he always left smiling and happy he had gone to see the golden pair.

Being weyrbred, T’ryn was fairly confident he had seen all of his friends in the nude at some point in his life and nudity didn’t typically bother him but he still averted his eyes when Mulrissa stood up. It felt different knowing they just had sex and she was older and even more regal. How did she have such grace and confidence and portray it so effortlessly just by getting to her feet? The mysteries of women, he supposed. But getting dressed was a good idea since it was not only obvious neither of them was looking for another tumble in bed, but someone would be coming soon with food.

“I’m not sure how you don’t lose patience or get mad at losing a day or more of waiting around,” T’ryn slipped out of bed to make the dash to where his pants had been left. “At least with golds, their hides start shining enough to give you some notice so you can plan better for the Flight, but greens don’t seem to be quite as obvious.” He felt bad for greenriders having to try to make their own dash but not to pants, to somewhere secluded. B’jin had been in a class once when Larrikith flew and while T’ryn didn’t want to think about his dad having sex, it was funny seeing the men leave the room covered in ink. He recalled how he and N’mor peeked in the room afterwards and had a good laugh at the destruction the Flight had caused. Being caught up in Flights now, however, made such a scene not as funny.

“And because you wouldn’t let me fetch dinner, you have to let me help you tidy up.” T’ryn gave his best stern expression a shot but considering he was doing up his pants and still shirtless, it likely didn’t seem as impactful as he hoped--which was why it didn’t last long and turned into a soft laugh as he shook his head and went for his shirt. His good mood was a bit of a surprise and as he tucked his socks into his boots—he still felt a little overheated from the Flight and the cool stone felt nice on his bare feet—T’ryn had a sneaky suspicion that Syrendryth was pushing more of his own good mood onto his rider than he usually did. But since he was feeling that good mood now himself, T’ryn didn’t complain.

“That’s probably what keeps me from losing patience, because I’d rather be bored for a day or two than completely blindsided by a Flight. Imagine if Bedith decided to Fly when we weren’t at home. Would we be stuck there until the eggs hatched, or would we have to fly all the way home, no going between?” Rissa wondered how that might end up. Bedith, however, had no curiosity. It would never happen, because I’m not stupid enough to Fly when it might put the clutch at risk, Bedith said with disdain, clearly unamused at the idea she’d lose track of time and Rise away from home. Mulrissa shook her head in amusement.

“Never mind, Bedith says she’s far too reasonable to do anything like that. I, however, could very easily get caught unawares and end up somewhere unfortunately public or it could be on one of the nights my daughter stays over. No, I’ll take a few days of waiting over surprises.” She shrugged, sitting back down on the edge of her bed to survey the damage to the room. “Works out better for Syrendryth this way, in any case. Gives you more time to get to Telgar,” Mulrissa teased as she catalogued all the things out of place. Not a whole lot, frankly — a pillow had ended up over by the door, and a tapestry her children had gifted her at Turn’s End was slightly askew, in addition to all the sheets on the floor - which made her think that the worst of it was probably in the main room. Unfortunately, the main room had more breakable items in it, like drinkware, her small cabinet of alcohol, and her nice set of dining table and chairs.

She stood up, walking over to the door to pick up the pillow. Upon picking it up she gave it a quick once over, making sure it hadn’t gotten terribly dirty somehow, before throwing it back on the bed. “I think I’ll take you up on that, though maybe you shouldn’t make any promises before seeing the other room. Shall we take a look?” Mulrissa asked, opening the door and waving for T’ryn to follow her.

"Sometimes it isn't fun having such sensible dragons. Syrendryth insisted on us being here early and he is quite opinionated when he sees something foolish. Don't tell Casa, but he had a lot to say about her and Thallyath but you and Bedith seem to rank high on his list because he doesn't have much to say. Trust me; that's a good thing." He scrunched his nose and shot an irritated glance in the direction the dragons were curled up. Syrendryth avoided talking to humans if he could and sometimes was picky with dragons but he was never shy about judging others and sharing with T'ryn. It was nice visiting Mulrissa because it was a lot quieter in his head. And was any of that wise to say? Maybe he should follow his dragon's example and not talk so much.

It didn't seem like Mulrissa minded as she waved for him to join her in the main room, or she was just waiting to lecture him on manners after he had upheld his offer to clean.He winced when he saw the room and chuckled, "maybe you were right and I should have waited before offering. Too bad; you still have to deal with me getting in your way while I attempt to help. You can use this as a chance to rearrange the room and I won't even realise it because I can't remember exactly where everything goes." He was smiling as he headed over to a chair that had been knocked over and stood it upright. Did it actually go there? Would it stay there? He didn't know but he was serious in helping her move everything around if she wanted.

"I'd say a pack of wild animals got loose in here but it wouldn't be too far from the truth, would it? We do become rather animalistic when the dragons ride us but thankfully some have more control than others or I suspect there would be larger brawls during Flights and broken bones and chairs." He thought about the most random things sometimes when he was alone and reflecting on choices or thinking about the little details of how something worked. He grew up with Flights constantly happening around him but as a kid, he was also taught not to get too close and if they wanted to 'moth, then it was best to wait until the last second. He never thought about what happened between the Rise and the win until he started getting involved in them. Considering his only battle wounds seemed to come from Mulrissa during sex--he wasn't going to blush at the thought of claw marks on his back, damnit!-- T'ryn felt confident in the belief that he hung back more, perhaps like a predator waiting for his chance to strike and win than be a part of the wild pack.

“I shall endeavor to give Syrendryth as little to say about me as possible, then,” Rissa said with a laugh, making a quick inventory of where all the breakable items were. She had thankfully had enough foresight to have all but one cup packed away in the small wooden chest they came in, which was kept in a cabinet that no one seemed to have given a second thought or accidentally bumped into. Could be much worse.

She let T’ryn put the chairs back upright (she sort of remembered shoving someone into one of the chairs and knocking both over), and got him to help her straighten out the couch, which had gotten moved out of place by about a foot.

“At least no one pissed on the floor,” Mulrissa said with a wry smile as she went around the table pushing the chairs in. “Though really, I’m sure more people would get hurt if it was entirely us in charge. Even caught up in passion dragons are ultimately sensible creatures. As crazy as they may drive us sometimes,” she said, shooting a look at the stone wall Bedith lounged behind. Bedith snorted, lightly blocking her rider out in fake spite and making a show of being oh-so-tired and asleep. “It really is them in charge though, isn’t it? Or at least, Bedith certainly is. I can’t imagine a situation that would have me pushing someone into a chair, but it makes sense for her to do so. Or, well, kick a presumptuous suitor away but it’s sort of the same thing, in this case.” She shrugged, adjusting a runner she had on top of one of her cabinets that had been knocked askew.

Several minutes of cleaning later and there was a knock at the door. Mulrissa insisted T’ryn let her answer it —it was her friend bringing dinner, after all — and she gratefully accepted the tray Samara brought, and momentarily tolerated her teasing in appreciation for her help — “He’s cute, isn’t he? Don’t give me that look, Rissa, he’s older than all my children so I can say it” — before telling her goodnight and bringing the food to the newly set-to-rights dining table and getting out some silverware from one of her cabinets.

T’ryn fell quiet as he continued with righting the room, pondering what Mulrissa had said. No doubt she was right; the dragons were definitely the more serene part of the relationship and even in Flights were likely keeping their human in check. He knew some men reveled in the so-called loss of control and it seemed like some purposely played it up and acted more heavy-handed than others just because they could blame it on something else. People sucked sometimes. He chuckled softly to himself when Mulrissa went for the door as he realised he could hear the sexually awakened Casa in his head saying ‘people suck; and not in the good way.’ Maybe he was getting over all of his crushes, finally.

He pretended to look busy by adjusting the chairs one more time around the table so he wouldn’t look awkward just standing there like he was eavesdropping as the friends conversed but the awkwardness only increased as he could actually catch the conversation. Once more he was blushing thanks to the praise and he did his best to nonchalantly move around the table until his back was to the visitor so she wouldn’t see the effect she had on him. The comments also brought back the reminder that Mulrissa was older than him and probably closer to his father’s age. How old were her kids? T’ryn knew Chalris a bit and knew he was older than the other boy. Was he the oldest of Mulrissa’s kids? He felt that was true and the tension in his shoulders disappeared again. Flights, or maybe just Weyrs in general, were wild like that. He wasn’t sure how he’d handle ending up in bed for one reason or another with someone old enough to have children older than him. The age of the lover didn’t bother him but he had a feeling looking the kid in the eye afterward would be awkward.

Thankfully he was spared having to figure out why when Mulrissa brought the tray to the table. He was famished and everything looked so good! “Thanks for getting us dinner and letting me help clean, Mulrissa. I promise I won’t pester you all night and leave in a bit. I might as well get B’jin’s teasing over with and visit him and Dad while I’m here.” B’jin got way too much joy in teasing him and N’mor at any chance that presented itself. Maybe if he willingly showed up and proudly proclaimed Syrendryth’s success, it wouldn’t be too bad? B’jin would probably just tease him about having a bronzerider ego and how many other golds Syrendryth wanted or if he was mated now. That man was a handful.

As he spoke, T’ryn had assembled a plate of food from the offerings and dug in, accidentally moaning in delight with the first bite. He really was hungry! It was so good! “I sometimes miss Telgar’s cooks. Ista’s are great, of course! But some of them here excel at seasoning the meat. Maybe I’ll pop down to the kitchens before I go as well. Hm… might have to leave a note depending on the hour.” T’ryn decided he’d swipe paper from B’jin for payment of what his visit would bring.

“I also don’t know how to properly approach the subject and over dinner probably isn’t the appropriate time either so I’m just going to blurt it out. Would you like a trip between tonight? Is that too blunt? Is there a better way to phrase that?” If Mulrissa hadn’t already viewed him as very young before thanks to Samara, she certainly would now with his fumbling of what was a fairly normal facet of Weyr life. Oh look, cooked carrots. T’ryn dug into them to avoid fidgeting and hoping the floor collapsed beneath him.

Mulrissa waved her hand in response to T’ryn’s thanks, brushing off the idea he was being a bother. “It’s no trouble. Samara offered to bring me dinner anyway, and bringing a second helping wasn’t any hassle for her. Gave her a chance to be nosy and tease me, and that’s enough repayment for her. I do not, however, envy you,” she continued, adding food to her plate as she spoke, “I get enough teasing from B’jin as it is, I can’t imagine how much more teasing he gives you. Tell him and your father I say hello, by the way.” She’d probably run into one or both of them sooner or later, but it wouldn’t do to have the pair think she was avoiding them. The embarrassment of the situation had hit her a lot more strongly the turn before, but apparently she didn't care nearly so much anymore. How times change. Should she be concerned that she cared less? Hmn.

T’ryn’s question was so awkwardly earnest Rissa couldn’t help but to laugh, though she tried to cover it a little with her hand. “There really is no good way to ask. I have a friend who, before she was mated, used to ask her dragonrider partners for baby name ideas if they didn’t offer her a ride.” She shook her head fondly, always amused by her friend’s antics. An effective tactic, if her stories and lack of children before she was mated were anything to go by. “It is very polite of you to offer, no matter how bluntly. I have no issue with tonight, or tomorrow. Depends on whether Syrendryth wants to bring us just now or not. If either of you prefer, tomorrow is also fine. You can get some more meat from the kitchens when there are more people around to make it fresh in the same trip, perhaps. Whichever you prefer, I don’t exactly have any plans tonight or tomorrow. Cleared the whole week for Bedith.” Her eyes twinkled mischievously, and she grinned at T’ryn. “I think your dad may kill me if I were to threaten him with grandkids just yet, so the offer is appreciated.”

T’ryn’s eyes went wide at the story of the friend and baby names and wider still at his dad becoming a granddad. No, R’nd would not appreciate that one bit. Maybe in the future? Way in the future? R’nd seemed weird when it came to dates and ages and anything that reminded him that he was getting older. Thankfully he had no desire to become a father himself just yet and wondered if B’jin would have to deal with the grandkid issue before him. N’mor was happily mated, even if it was to a man. Z’rin already had a daughter so he knew at least the bluerider would likely be okay with raising a kid with N’mor, though he didn’t want to think about the specifics. Maybe they would take in a brat from the crèche which would probably help B’jin’s vanity a bit.

“You know, as hilarious as it might be to see R’nd react to the news he was going to be a grandfather, I think it’ll also serve as a good reminder to make sure I always offer rides when the need arises.” Honestly, at his current rate, he’d only have to worry about when Syrendryth won a gold and so far that meant he’d be offering Mulrissa the ride once a year. That was doable. Perhaps next year they’ll just roll out of bed laughing, get dressed, eat, and go for that ride joking about the whole thing. He could possibly be okay with that.

“Anyway, I don’t get the teasing nearly as much as N’mor does and now that he and Dad know about Mylorah—oh, do you know her? She’s R’nd’s eldest child, a year older than me. But B’jin has started pointing out that Nem and Mylo would have beautiful babies. I think Mylorah might be plotting his demise, but welcome to the family, right?” T’ryn laughed, happy that Mylorah was now a full part of the chaos and doing fairly well at fitting in. She still declined some invitations or left before the gathering ended but it was a lot to take in and he knew she was overwhelmed and out of her element.

T’ryn reached out to Syrendryth, finding the bronze to be content and in way ready to move. He was nuzzling with Bedith and seemed intent on lavishing her in attention until she kicked him out. Even then, it was noted they would stay the night and check up on the ladies in the morning. “And it seems Sy is in no hurry and would be happy to give you a ride in the morning. So we will be around any time you’d like to go. Do you need a trip to the Hold for anything? I wouldn’t mind helping you carry anything or just waiting while you did errands.” He knew he sounded eager to please and perhaps he was; but he wanted to make sure Mulrissa wasn’t left to deal with everything alone this time. He knew she was a capable woman and didn’t really need him for anything other than a between trip—and even then she could ask a friend—but their first Flight together hadn’t been his finest moment and he was hoping to improve any views others had of him—other than the view that he was cute and old enough, anyway.

The image of R’nd learning he was to be a grandfather was certainly an amusing one, though Rissa could understand why T’ryn might not want to deal with it. Certainly an awkward conversation, and if T’ryn wasn’t willing to have it, he probably shouldn’t be having children. As long as not wanting to tell R’nd didn’t keep him from having kids when he actually wanted them…

“Not a bad reminder, no. Just don’t let worrying about his reaction stop you if the day comes that you want children, all right? He’ll deal, and be happy for you, once he’s finished panicking about being old,” she said, not wanting him to think his father’s opinion should affect his choices about what to do with his life. R’nd was a lot better than her own father in so many ways, but Mulrissa got the impression that he wasn’t the most self-confident bronzerider in the Weyrs, and may try too hard to please his dad. Just a feeling she had.

Rissa smiled as T’ryn described poor Mylorah having to deal with B’jin — most likely at family events, so he was almost certainly at least tipsy if not drunk — teasing her. At least it let her know she was part of the family? R’nd had told her about Mylorah not that long ago, and while Mulrissa was not fully up to date on the situation, she was aware Mylorah was R’nd’s most recently discovered child. Honestly, did he have at least one per turn between when the dragonriders reunited and getting together with B’jin? She sometimes wondered.

“Morning is fine with me,” she told T’ryn with a nod of agreement. Bedith had grumbled a little at the idea of her bronze leaving just yet, so it was good Syrendryth didn't want to leave yet either. Mulrissa didn’t want to deal with a pissy Bedith if she didn’t have to. “And I don’t have anything that can’t be put off or done by someone else. I think I would prefer not to leave Bedith alone for long enough to have a proper shopping trip. Something quick would be best, I think. Though I truly appreciate the offer and may take you up on that in a month or two. Bedith gets very mellow the closer she is to Clutching, it seems, so she likely won’t mind at all then.” It still surprised Rissa how calm Bedith became in the month or two before Clutching. She was usually so quick to snap at the slightest perceived insult, but the turn before, by the time they got to the week before she Clutched she barely reacted to things that would usually have her in an outrage. Gold dragons were odd, but Rissa wasn’t going to complain. Her gold could have gone the other other way and gotten even more twitchy and ready to bitch at everyone and everything; oddly mellow was much preferable.

It really was sweet of T’ryn to offer, because she would be without the easy convenience of jumping on her dragon and going wherever she needed to go for a while. Not that Mulrissa was overly prone to travel, but she went to Telgar Hold often enough, and some of the other Holds as well. But she hadn’t found anything that had been broken in the Flight that couldn’t be replaced by a quick trip to the storeroom, so for the time being a Hold shopping trip was a luxury she could put off. Though if she thought of anything, perhaps she could ask T’ryn if he’d mind grabbing it for her. Might make him feel helpful, which he seemed to want to be.

T’ryn nodded at the advice Mulrissa gave him about his dad. Yes, he was worried about how R’nd would react to knowing he was a grandad and while it would be kind of hilarious, T’ryn didn’t want to upset his dad like that either. But he also knew he couldn’t live his life under everyone else’s expectations, no matter how much he wanted to please people. If the day ever came that he wanted to be a father himself, he wouldn’t let the fear of being the reason R’nd’s hair turned grey from stress over being old stop him. He’d also be more than old enough to be a father so it wasn’t like he was giving him a surprise child while still young himself. And if anyone else bothered to do the math, they’d see that R’nd was practically a child himself when he fathered Mylorah so R’nd really couldn’t judge if even A’tay suddenly showed up with a baby in his arms.

T’ryn let out a silent breath of relief that Mulrissa accepted his offer, even if only the short version of it. He really didn’t want to just ditch like he had last time and wanted to not only make up for that but prove he had learned better post-Flight etiquette and that he wanted to help out more. He realised at some point over the past year after watching other Flights and how the bronzeriders—or blue, apparently—behaved and he couldn’t believe how most didn’t seem to want anything to do with the process after claiming the win. He supposed he could see that point of view considering it wasn’t his dragon clutching or guarding the eggs and the gold likely didn’t want company but would it really hurt to offer up some help?

“Any time you need assistance and Bedith is okay with us taking you, please let me know. Syrendryth will see to Bedith’s needs at the time as well.” T’ryn recalled how his dragon would go off and visit with Bedith when they came for family dinners and that he even hunted for the gold a few times. At the time, T’ryn believed it was both a genuine gesture to show his respect for Bedith but also a tad of showing off as well. Syrendryth liked to believe they were the best and others should know that as well.

“And when I head out, I’ll take the dishes with me. No arguing,” he wagged a finger at Mulrissa to stop any protesting, “I’ll already be leaving and it’s only a short detour to return everything. I can give my compliments to anyone left working as well.” It all worked out rather well in his opinion, especially since he wanted to stop by a store room to get a bit of soapsand for a bath before seeing the nosy parental units.

“Thank you, T’ryn, I will be sure to reach out. Bedith will be thrilled, of course. She loves being treated like a lady by such an exemplary bronze,” Rissa said, teasing her smug dragon about how vain she was. Bedith mentally huffed at her, but didn’t deny a word of it. She did enjoy how Syrendryth had stopped by to check in with her the turn before after their Flight. The fact that he brought her food when she was Sand-bound didn’t hurt at all. It only reinforced her belief that Syrendryth was better than any of the Telgar bronzes.

Mulrissa's mouth twitched into a smile at the way T’ryn insisted on taking the dishes. Wagging his finger at her as if she weren’t a number of turns older. She found it very amusing, really, and rather charming. “The dishes are all yours to take, dear,” she laughed, “I’m not going to refuse the chance to not have to leave my weyr.” They’d already taken care of the worst of the disarray from the Flight, which meant she could just focus on having a nice bath (hoorah for goldrider weyrs with their own bathing chambers!) and going to bed. She didn’t have enough energy for anything else.

’We’ll give you a nice bath again tomorrow,’ Mulrissa told Bedith, knowing her gold would want one after the exertions of the day. Too dark out to do it right then, and and there was no way Rissa would be able to scrub an entire, very large, gold dragon until after she’d slept a few hours.

She and T’ryn chatted a bit more, leisurely finishing the food that had been brought up. Rissa helped T’ryn collect all the dishes, stacking them securely back on the tray they’d come on — T’ryn didn’t need to deal with plates breaking on him when he was being polite in bringing them back at all — and let him go on his way, confirming that yes, he was expected the next morning for a ride, just have Syrendryth let Bedith know when they were on their way over. After he left, Mulrissa crept over to Bedith’s part of the weyr, peeking through the door to check on her dragon, who was still entwined with Syrendryth. Really, it was a good thing Mulrissa had claimed a weyr intended for a mated goldrider with children, otherwise Bedith and Syrendryth were likely to be quite cramped. As it was, they had plenty of space, and, sensing her rider’s presence, Bedith blinked one eye open to look at Mulrissa, briefly making eye contact before closing her eye again. Rissa grinned and quietly stepped back into the main room of her weyr.
