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!

Madiquel smiled gratefully at Eb’zer as he handed her a mug of warm herbal tea sweetened with honey, before watching the healer take a last glance around and excuse himself. She, and her fellow classmates, were set up in one of the old goldrider weyrs; it was a huge family one, with four bedrooms and a private bathing room. Perfect for keeping herself, Beckitt and Misharan under constant supervision, with plenty of room for adult dragons to let their riders in, both announced and unexpectedly. Taking a sip of her tea, Madiquel watched Zezeth sleeping quietly beside her, the little green’s head resting on her lap.

With her head in the clouds, eyes glazed and sipping from her drink abensetly as she watched her dragonet breathe in and out, Madiquel was quietly startled when she heard the shuffle of feet at her doorway. Blinking, she looked up, expecting to see one of the boys, or maybe one of the many adults that popped in irregularly. Instead, she blinked again and forced her gaze to focus on A’tay. Madiquel’s face bloomed into a smile, and she shifted slightly as if she was going to stand, before sagging and waving A’tay to come to her, smiling with bone deep exhaustion.

“Hey,” she said quietly, leaning into her best friend when he sat beside her, almost sagging. She felt a million turns old, and was sure she looked awful; Madiquel had barely slept at all between Impressing and the current moment. So much time was spent making sure Zezeth was still alive, only sleeping – or feeding her, or cleaning up after her when she went to the toilet. There was a bucket of water and a bucket of meaty soup on one side of her doorway, while the far side of her room had what looked like a small sandpit for Zezeth to go to the toilet in; the tiny dragon showing the most amount of dignity when she eyeballed it the first time, disgusted.

“Oh Tay,” Madiquel sighed, suddenly on the verge of breaking, “what have I done?” She lifted her gaze, peering up at A’tay through a wave of unshed tears, biting her bottom lip as she sniffled. She hadn’t heard from her Papa yet, and wasn’t sure how to take that except in the most negative way imaginable, completely convinced he hated her for her betrayal. She was so terrified that Zezeth would die, and she’d lose her little green baby and join her father in that strange, mad void he had been living in since the landslide. “What if she dies?” Madiquel asked brokenly, bursting into tears as she whispered the fear everyone had about the three hatchlings, but that she hadn’t yet voiced about her dragon. Zezeth was in a deep slumber, breathing deeply and almost snoring softly with each breath. She didn’t so much as twitch when Madiquel twisted to wrap her arms around A’tay and press her face to his chest, crying brokenly.

He was finally allowed to see Madiquel! It had been the longest twenty-four hours of his life. All he wanted was to hug her and congratulate her and double check that she was okay with Impressing when she had never wanted to. But no. Every adult in the Weyr—at least it felt like it—kept telling him not to bother the Healers and everyone needed rest. Xyxyth wouldn’t even help him pass on a message stating he didn’t want to upset the little green by barging in on her space without permission. The green was too weak to talk directly to and he refused to try, deciding to instead protect all three babies like the humans were doing.

A’tay conceded and was willing to wait as long as he could but instead got pulled into playing messenger for someone that he was still in shock over seeing. But he had returned to Ista Weyr with the letter in hand a threat repeating in his head about what would happen if he failed in his task or made Madiquel cry. His wide-eyes and explanation seemed to be enough to let him and as he entered the room, spotting Madiquel, the look didn’t entirely fade.

She looked like crap. It was clear she hadn’t slept much, if at all, and he couldn’t quite read her expression until she registered his arrival and waved him over. He took quiet and cautious steps across the room, eyes more on the dragonet than anywhere else. He was afraid to disturb her but also so curious about what she looked like and how she was doing. But he refrained from gawking as he sat down beside his best friend and managed to slip an arm around her as Madiquel slumped against him. It wasn’t really the hug he had wanted to give but it would do.

“Please don’t cry,” A’tay panicked slightly, wondering if this counted as him making her cry and if Jajojin would know. But he ignored that fear to focus on his friend needing him, brushing some loose strands of hair from her face and offering a small smile.

“You haven’t done anything but reply to the call of your dragon.” How could Madiquel think she’d done something wrong? The dragon chose the rider, it wasn’t like she had a choice in the matter or was expecting it. She wasn’t even on the Sands so she wasn’t doing anything other than hoping for the best like the rest of them. “And now you’re ensuring she survives. I know you wanted to be a Healer and you’ll be one yet, but maybe the training you have had was meant to help… what’s her name, DiDi?”

He studied the dragon now that he had mentioned her and asked for a name. She was so frail and almost grotesque with the features seeming too large with the lack of meat on her bones. But A’tay was confident she’d survive. She’d made the bond with Madiquel and held on long enough to get aid. That alone spoke volumes of her willpower—combine that with Madiquel’s own determination and those two would be ruling the Weyr instead of Ameris soon enough.

Madiquel sniffled, and slowly pulled herself together. She felt a little better, having shared the weight of the biggest question on her shoulders with her friend, and his response was to support her, not condemn her, and that helped more than Madiquel could say or had known it would. Sighing deeply, Madiquel wiped her face, mostly with her own sleeve, since there was a teary wet spot in the middle of A’tay’s shirt from her meltdown. She didn’t move away, though, and instead curled in closer, shifting and carefully moving Zezeth’s head so the dragonet was still on her lap, but so Madiquel was comfortably plastered against A’tay’s side. “I’m so glad you’re here,” Madiquel said softly, and with great sincerity.

Looking up at A’tay’s question, Madiquel blinked blankly at him for several moments. Her lips parted, but no sound came out before she flushed crimson, ducking her head and curling up against A’tay so he couldn’t see her face. “Its Zezeth,” she said, quietly but clearly, still avoiding looking up at him. What a group they made! Xyxyth and Zezeth and TayTay and DiDi… Madiquel spluttered a soft giggle at the absurdity of it all, the sound turning into a hiccup part way through and she giggled again, at that, before dissolving into a ridiculous fit of soft laughter. Faranth, she needed about six turns of sleep, and knew she wouldn’t be getting any for far too long. Slowly, her giggles subsided, and she sighed again, puffing out the breath in exhaustion.

“We’ll have to rename Shadow and Clover,” Madiquel said at last, speaking before A’tay could after her revelation of her dragon’s name, and her giggling fit. “Maybe DoDo and CloClo?” She tilted her head up, resting her cheek against the curve of A’tay’s shoulder and grinning at him with an expression of exhausted amusement. Better, to think of renaming her firelizard to fit the theme (she was surprised they both didn’t barge in at their actual names) than to think about Zezeth’s precious grip on life, or her father’s likely demise into complete insanity, and the betrayal he must feel at her Impressing.

It had only been one day but A'tay was convinced Madiquel had already lost her mind. He couldn't help but glance down at the dragonet and saw she was breathing, but the nonsensical ideas and slightly hysterical laughter worried him. He didn't know what to do or say and it probably showed when she finally calmed a bit and stared at him from where her chin rested on his shoulder.

"Um..." he didn't think renaming the firelizards would help anything and saying that probably wasn't smart either. So he was back to not knowing what to say until he realised he hadn't had a chance to comment on Zezeth's name in general. "Zezeth is a great name. Xyxyth hopes he can meet her today or soon if she's not allowed near other dragons yet." He didn't know if they were in isolation or not. Some people whispered theories that the original plague started from a blue-sired clutch which was why there weren't any records of it happening before because no one wanted to admit to being a part of the cause. A'tay thought that was ridiculous but caution in general wasn't a bad idea. The babies were weak and who knew what might affect them and how. So his way of thinking was more for the dragonets being kept safe than the population at large.

"And, um... your Papa uh, he asked to see me and," he was still a bit startled from that encounter and while it wasn't bad news he was relaying, it was still difficult to find the words. "he said to tell you he'll be here as soon as he can be. Not that anything is more important than you! Just, the whole dragon thing and going between..." A'tay fell silent both because he felt like he wasn't helping and because he worried he'd slip up and say he always wondered if Jajojin didn't dread between but that he dreaded coming back out of it again.

A'tay fished out the letter from his pocket and handed it over to Madiquel, whispering, "he still loves you, DiDi."

“Soon,” Madiquel agreed, looking down at the little dragonet. Dragons didn’t get sick a whole lot, but they were known to get colds upon occasion, and with how tiny the three Hatchlings were, Madiquel hated to think how thoroughly even a small cold would screw with them. She doubted they’d live through it, like the young infants they’d learned about in classes, that got sick and died before they’d even began to live. She shuddered, the quiver tearing through her whole body, and she pressed into the warmth of A’tay unconsciously.

Madiquel blinked, and tilted her head to look up at A’tay again, brushing wisps of her hair off her face and blinking again. “Papa?” she asked, her face crumpling at A’tay’s words, though she managed not to burst into tears, green eyes swimming behind a sudden swarm of tears; Madiquel bit her bottom lip, hard, and nodded at A’tay’s words. She wanted – desperately – to believe him, but she just couldn’t. Madiquel could remember the early days, after her Papa’s precious bronze had died, and remembered how he’d reacted when he’d been told he would have to ride a dragon, ride a dragon between, to get to the Weyr when they all moved up to the North… And now she’d Impressed a dragonet that was barely hanging on to life. “Oh, Papa,” Madiquel choked, her voice a soft whisper of despair.

Her breath hitched when A’tay handed her the letter, but Madiquel was ashamed and confused by how little they had to do with their connection to her Papa, and how much it did have to do with the blonde bronzerider she was clinging to. Sniffling, she took the letter and stared at it watery, before handing it back to A’tay. “Read it to me?” She asked softly, breathing out slowly as a couple of tears fell. Even when she wasn’t emotional and exhausted, words troubled her and Madiquel knew in her current state she’d be even worse at reading than normal; never mind the fact that she could barely see straight!

“Thank you,” She said softly, as A’tay took the letter back and unfolded it. Leaning up carefully, one hand pressed to A’tay’s chest to balance herself, Madiquel pressed a soft kiss to his cheek; her eyes were closed, and the light press of her lips landed on the corner of his own, rather than the middle of his cheek where she normally placed them. Sighing softly again, Madiquel tucked her head under A’tay’s chin, resting her ear to his chest and listening to the soft sound of his breathing and his beating heart, the fingers of her right hand curled into a fist of his shirt; she was asleep before he’d really began to read the letter from her Papa, her breaths low, deep and even.

Finally, Zezeth’s voice was a low, gravelly rumble as she lifted her skeletal head and blinked at A’tay, watching him react to her being awake, and speaking, with a kind of knowing amusement. Due to her youth, her voice was less for A’tay and more in general, but the way she was staring at the bronzerider made it clear she was whispering to him, doing her best to not wake the girl that was finally sleeping. Zezeth had been worried her Madiquel would never sleep, and that just wasn’t good. Especially with how much Madiquel said Zezeth needed to sleep, to help her get strong and grow up big. Blinking thoughtfully at A’tay, Zezeth slowly lifted herself from Madiquel’s lap, pausing every time her rider-to-be mumbled in her sleep or twitched. As a result, it took almost half an hour for Zezeth to go from being awake, to being on the floor and stretching out her awkward, ungainly little green body.

The little dragon glanced once more at Madiquel, now curled up on A’tay’s lap, amused, and then trotted – her gait wobbly and awkward – over to the buckets that were kept in the room for her. One was filled with fresh water, which she drank from eagerly, and the other with small pieces of meat. Zezeth ate from that, too, until her rib-visible belly was bloated with food. Full, her thirst sated, Zezeth made her way back to the bed, and sat down at the edge of it, peering up at A’tay with that frank curiosity once more.

Dyoricath doesn’t like when people touch his rider. She said, her voice low again to avoid it either waking her rider, or being too easily overheard by others. Since she spoke in a low, husky register as a rule, she was less inclined to be overheard anyway. But there was no point in her blue brother hearing her gossiping about him! Zezeth had originally thought that Dyoricath knew something she didn’t, with the way he got upset when people got to close to his rider. But, as she frowned in her draconic way up at A’tay, with Madiquel so peacefully curled up on his lap, she wondered if perhaps Dyoricath wasn’t the one that didn’t know something she did.

Shifting her gaze from Madiquel’s peacefully sleeping face, Zezeth stood up again and shook herself out, wobbling when she upset her balance. Don’t wake her, she decided, nodding to herself. Moving back to the bed, Zezeth pulled herself up onto it, moving around much like a feline, until she was comfortably curled up regally at Madiquel’s pillow, her head resting on the soft surface and her head tilted so she could watch A’tay placidly, her expression thoughtful and curious.

A'tay was startled out of reading the short letter by Zezeth's voice and he stared at the dragonet with wide eyes. He hadn't expected her to talk while he was there, figuring he'd have to leave before she woke from her nap. But what did she mean by finally? Oh. A glance to Madiquel made it clear his friend was asleep and seemed like she was going to be that way for a while. He looked at the letter he was holding, wondering if she heard any of it, decided that was unlikely, and hoped she read it before Jajojin came--and killed him because Madiquel wasn't prepared or believed what she wanted.

Zezeth seemed to be doing well for only a day old and malnourished, A'tay thought as he watched her work her way across the room. She definitely wasn't stable on her feet but she was moving on her own and could feed as well. Both seemed like good signs to him! Maybe he'd pass that on to Jajojin. A'tay had no intentions of being a spy for him but it'd probably do him well to know the dragonet was already improving. This really was a worst case scenario for an ex-rider with a kid. Madiquel not only Impressed but to a sickly dragon that many didn't think would make it to a month old let alone graduation. Jajojin wouldn't be able to handle losing Madiquel whether she died or lost a part of her mind like he did, so reassurances that the pair was doing well might help him.

He nodded in agreement at the decision not to wake Madiquel, not even giving voice to it in case that would wake her. So he continued to watch Zezeth get comfortable and then they were having an accidental staring contest as the dragon stared at him. Suddenly unsure what to do, A'tay looked away and studied the paper he still held. She will be a wise dragon. She already watches and learns from everything around her.

A'tay nodded, forgetting for a moment that this voice in his head was one he could mentally reply to. He had been too focused on not moving or speaking, fearing he would wake Madiquel and it was clear she needed the rest if even Zezeth said as much. She's going to take care of DiDi, too. She's already so concerned for her well-being. He paused, wondering if he should add to the negative vibes, even if they were only in his head and shared with his dragon. His siblings sometimes teased him about how superstitious he could be but he couldn't help it.

She'll make it, right? Zezeth is already so much stronger than yesterday.

I think you answered your own question. They're both strong and will fight through their obstacles and win. Xyxyth was so confident, A'tay couldn't help but feel it as well and smiled. The smile extended to Zezeth and he gave a little nod, putting the final stamp of approval on the whole matter.

Still too afraid to move, A'tay leaned his head back against the wall and shut his eyes. He wasn't at all tired but it would stop him from being rude and staring at Zezeth.

Madiquel woke with that lazy, comfortable slowness that came from sleeping peacefully, which she felt like she hadn’t gotten to do in forever even though technically it had only been a couple of nights (she’d been too excited about coming to Ista to sleep properly before her Impression!) and the warmth of a body pressed against her and the familiar scent of… someone just made her sigh softly, content. At first, she thought she was curled up with her Papa, but that didn’t make any sense at all. She’d remember if her Papa had arrived, right? As soon as that thought entered, everything came rushing back, and she blinked at Zezeth (who was watching her silently from where she was resting on the pillow) and then glanced up cautiously at the underside of A’tay’s jaw. Madiquel blinked, and blushed a little. She hadn’t meant to fall asleep! She’d been so excited to see A’tay and he must think her so rude!

Shifting cautiously, trying not to wake A’tay who appeared to be asleep, Madiquel frowned at her dragonet, who just responded with a soft snort and the feeling of amusement. Madiquel sighed, and glanced against A’tay. Gosh, she was an awful friend! She’d fallen asleep and pinned him down and of course TayTay was much too sweet to shove her off so he could leave or eat or … she hoped he hadn’t needed to pee! How long had she been asleep? Oh, what a disaster!

Stop, Zezeth said softly, in her gravelly whisper, and Madiquel flinched and pouted at her dragon. The look, and the emotions she received, clearly indicated all her worrying was giving Zezeth a headache, and wasn’t going to change the past. Madiquel sighed dramatically, still pouting, and carefully untangled herself from A’tay and slipped out of the room, Zezeth watching her go.

Madiquel made a quick trip to the privy herself, the thought having inspired her own bladder, apparently, before darting into the kitchen and scrounging up some food for herself and A’tay, as well as two glasses of juice and a jug of water. She smiled thankfully at one of the assistants that insisted on helping her get it all back to her room, and completely missed the look he gave her and A’tay before leaving. Setting up a little picnic on the ground like Madiquel usually had with Rhaedalyn and the girls, or her Papa, and A’tay in the past (before dragons came along, primarily) Madiquel smiled to herself and looked up, squeaking when she found A’tay watching her.

A hand flying to her chest in surprise, Madiquel stared, before laughing softly at herself. “I thought you were still asleep!” She giggled, shaking her head before holding a hand out to A’tay in invitation to join her on the floor. “I’m so sorry I fell asleep, TayTay! That was very rude of me,” She sighed sadly, throwing a look at Zezeth who snorted at her and went about grooming her claws, as if she had ever had any kind of meat or gore under them to clean off.

“Tell me what’s been happening beyond my dragon,” Madiquel begged flushing again, “and um, what did Papa write?” Anxiety flooded her stomach, and she shifted uncomfortably, both at falling asleep and at whatever her Papa might have said.

Despite not being tired, A'tay found himself lightly drifting off from time to time as Madiquel's nap kept going. He spent most of the time talking with Xyxyth and sometimes he'd watch Zezeth who was usually watching him in return. A few times he ventured to have a conversation with the green dragon when it became clear Madiquel was zonked right out but Zezeth had gone silent, only giving little nods when A'tay figured out yes and no questions worked best. In the end, he tried to sleep if only because his legs had fallen asleep and it kind of hurt and he didn't want to think about it.

When Madiquel finally stirred, A'tay was in the middle of one of his not-quite-asleep moments and he continued staying still in case his friend was just rolling over in her sleep. He gathered from Zezeth that Madiquel needed the rest so he wasn't going to disturb her in any way. But then she was bolting from the bed and out the room and A'tay looked over at Zezeth who almost seemed to shrug in reply to his silent question of 'what the heck just happened?'

"Looks like I have two dragons now," A'tay joked with a smile when Madiquel didn't immediately come back. "Not sure I want to go through weyrlinghood again when I'm just about to graduate from it, though. No offense, Zezeth." He wondered if that would be the better option versus being a full dragonrider for years and then suddenly going through it all again. At least he was still used to the restrictions and the rules whereas his brother hadn't gone through it in like five years!

When Madiquel did return, she went right into a task that involved all the items she held and he watched, bemused but not wanting to interrupt her work. But maybe he should have, as he seemed to startle her when she glanced his way. Did she forget he was there? A'tay laughed and shook his head at her statement. "I was never actually asleep. And it's fine, not rude at all. You needed the sleep and apparently I'm a good pillow. R'dal will be pleased to hear that. Or maybe he'll be worried? I could be competition now for all the cuddles out there."

He was still smiling when he joined Madiquel at the picnic. He wasn't sure what suddenly prompted it but he was okay with it since he was getting a bit hungry. Honestly, his rumbling stomach was probably what woke Madiquel! He'd been too nervous to eat anything before seeing Jajojin and too afraid after to consider food. But now, food was good. Or it was until Jajojin was brought up again and he stopped reaching for the snack.

"The outside world is the same as usual, nothing exciting there. Though, everyone really wants to see all of you. Pretty sure Mylorah is close to either seducing a Healer or just camping out nearby so she can see you and the boys." His sister was a lot of things, and patient was sometimes one of them--but not since the Hatching. She was close to all three that Impressed and it was driving her crazy not being able to check in on any of them. A'tay was glad he wasn't an assistant or Healer and having to deal with her.

He couldn't delay the letter again so he reached back to the bed where the letter had been set and cleared his throat to read the words that he had practically memorized by that point. "My baby girl, you're probably having a rough time and I'm sorry I can't be there to help you. But I will be there soon. You know how hard that sort of travel is for me and my love for you is warring with my fears. Otherwise, I would have been there the moment I heard. But when I see the dragon meant to take me... I love you, my sweet girl. Papa"

A'tay fell silent as he finished reading but stared at the paper a moment longer. He had a feeling Madiquel would be crying and still blaming herself for Impressing and he didn't want to see her that upset. "He does love you, DiDi. I even saw him try to mount Zeianth for the trip over here today instead of sending me with the letter but... he couldn't." In fact, Jajojin had started crying and holding his head at what A'tay guessed were memories of climbing aboard Denath likely flooded back to him. But he couldn't tell Madiquel those details, knowing they would destroy her. At least he hadn't seen Xyxyth, the bronze wisely hiding up with Kadaisicalth in the blue's weyr until he was needed.
