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!

July 2017

We are currently having an event to Create Adoptables! And encourage everyone to take part!

History is almost complete, and the profile has been re-coded. All new characters will need to go onto the new profile, but all old can keep their current! We'll begin advertising properly over the next couple of weeks, once the history has been completed, and probably after the weekend of the 8th and 9th, because that is when ThistleProse is having her birthday.

We officially have two layouts! You can post here with any issues you find, or request any changes!

May 2017

Progress has slowed down a little, due to RL events (yay promotions! Boo no internet!) but we're getting back on track! Documents are still being written and we've put together a FAQs page, though its likely to recieve a lot of adjustments as we come across things. The current goal is to have everything set up and ready by July, but we'll see how well we go at that. And by we, I mean ThistleProse. lol.

April 2017

The layout is almost complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done; documents are being written up and can be found in the Site Map menu opion. Players can begin to move their characters' information to their Account Profiles, but be aware some changes may still be made and/or added.
If you find any bugs or issues, plese repot them here, and we will do our best to fix them in a timely manner.

Halomirth had spent a surprising amount of time chatting with Quinvalis - F’drel loitering awkwardly and occasionally answering questions directed at him - before they had brought him back to Fort Weyr. It was almost certain Miri would be asking to go to Fort even more often now, so she could visit her new Candidate friend, which of course F’drel was thrilled about. Just overjoyed.

Once Miri determined Quinvalis was properly settled back in his home Weyr, the two of them returned to the Gather. Halomirth went back to cuddling with Edath, chirping happily at him in greeting before settling down alongside him. His dragon comfortable, F’drel went back to aimlessly wandering the Gather, half trying to track down his siblings and make sure they didn’t need him. He didn’t find his sisters or his brother (and the Lady who seemed far too invested in giving him gifts), but he did spot R’dal. F’drel would have continued looking for his siblings - R’dal didn’t need him hovering around all the time, he had other friends to spend time with - but he got a good look at the man R’dal was talking to and froze. Older, very well dressed, and the way he held himself was unmistakable - the self assured arrogance of a Lord.

What the fuck was R’dal doing? It looked like he was being his usual bubbly self and chatting with the lord, trying to make friends or something, like people could just befriend lords. And everything about this one screamed ‘danger’ to F’drel. All lords did, but this one especially set off every warning he had. He couldn’t breathe. R’dal wasn’t safe anywhere near this man, he needed to get away, if he didn’t he’d be hurt. F’drel was moving forward before he’d thought it through, weaving through people until he reached R’dal and the lord.

“Pardon the intrusion, my Lord,” he said with a polite bow, “I need his assistance on a matter of some importance. Please excuse us.” F’drel gave another short bow and put his hand on R’dal’s arm, guiding him away, walking as quickly as he dared. He didn’t slow down or say anything until they’d reached the dragons, though at some point along the way the hand on R’dal’s arm had turned into a vice grip.

Miri was standing up when they got there, eyes whirling in distress at her rider’s tumultuous emotional state. She whined softly, confused, and reached her head out towards F’drel with her head. F’drel silently walked over to rub her nose, leaning into her head for a moment and attempting to use the comfort of her presence to help get his breathing back to normal. It didn’t really work, and eventually he spun around to glare at R’dal.

“What the fuck were you thinking, R’dal, if you were at all?” he demanded. F’drel was trying so hard to keep from shaking, to keep breathing. This was why he hadn’t wanted to go to the Gather, but if he hadn’t been here there wouldn’t have been anyone to keep R’dal from that lord, and F’drel was positive R’dal would have gotten hurt. He couldn’t let that happen, not to R’dal, he couldn’t, he knew what lords would do to gullible young men. R’dal had never been very good at identifying dangerous people, he still thought D’hys was a decent person, it was going to get him in so much trouble one day, and please let it not be that day. F’drel had gotten him away, it would be fine, but R’dal needed to understand.

R'dal had been having fun, chatting with Lord Raigan, answering his questions truthfully and without hesitation, and thinking nothing of it. How did you learn about someone if you didn't ask? Well, F'drel was the exception. R'dal learned not to ask about some things but that was okay since F'drel was amiable in other ways and he still felt like they were close friends. Raigan didn't give out too much information himself, doing most of the questioning as they walked--though R'dal didn't know what the destination was. He had just offered himself up as a bodyguard of sorts and to keep the lonely-looking Lord company so he was happy to go with him wherever he wanted.

He was just about to ask what the plan was when F'drel appeared in a flurry of words and bowing and suddenly R'dal found himself being dragged away. He called out an apology and farewell to Raigan before looking worriedly at F'drel. What was so urgent? Why was he needed? Oh no! Something was wrong with Halomirth and F'drel was too panicked to say anything more, which also explained why his grip was so tight. R'dal winced at the pressure but didn't say anything, just tried to keep up with the pace, his own panic rising at what could have happened.

But when they arrived at their dragons and he saw both were fine, though a bit upset themselves, R'dal was confused. Even more so when F'drel turned on him. What did he do now to deserve being yelled at? He hadn't accidentally almost drowned any friends that day. In fact, he hadn't done much but wander around the Gather, try some food, chat with friends, and make new friends. But whatever it was he did, it was bad. F'drel was shaking and angrier than he'd ever been and R'dal felt tears welling up because he didn't know and that made him even more terrible of a person.

"I don't know what I did. I'm sorry!" The confused expression turned into a frown, lower lip jutting out a bit in a pout that trembled from trying not to cry. He could see Nerreh and even Mylorah reacting with shock and anger of their own at being accused of something even if they didn't know what it was. Or maybe they would know, picking up on whatever F'drel was mad about. But R'dal just felt like a dumb child that broke a rule that he clearly should have known about and still didn't even while being punished.

Maybe F'drel had heard about someone running into a Lord and assumed it was him because he was walking with one. That wouldn't do! It wasn't him! "I was only browsing at a stall when someone else ran into Lord Raigan! It wasn't me. I just went over to make sure he was okay, I swear it! I wasn't causing any problems. And he looked sad and was alone so I offered to hang out with him for a bit and he liked that. I wasn't bothering him." R'dal sniffled twice, his nose starting to run a bit thanks to trying to stave off the tears. F'drel couldn't hate him; he couldn't!

Of course, of course R’dal had no idea what he was talking about, why would he, he was an oblivious weyrbrat who’d grown up in a jungle, he knew nothing of lords. But he was living here now, and he needed to, or he would get hurt and F’drel couldn’t bear that. What if R’dal being so open and trusting led to a lord taking advantage of him, hurt him so much he was never the same, became more like F’drel? No, it couldn’t be allowed to happen.

Except now R’dal was near tears because of him, which made everything worse. F’drel wasn’t trying to make him cry, he just wanted to keep R’dal safe!

“I’m not mad at you, I’m afraid,” F’drel snapped, trying not to glare. It never fully registered to him how his fear tended to manifest as anger. But it was never anger at R’dal, not really, F’drel’s anger was for the lord he’d pulled R’dal away from, for every lord who thought they could do whatever the fuck they wanted, for his lord, for fucking all of it.

“He didn’t want to be your friend, R’dal, he wanted to take advantage of you, and you wouldn’t have noticed until it was too late.” He bit out the words, the knowledge they were still in a public place keeping his voice from rising above a normal speaking volume. F’drel didn’t want to make R’dal upset but he didn’t understand, and he had to. He had to make him understand.

R’dal was still leaning more towards F’drel being mad than afraid but he didn’t point that out, knowing it would actually make F’drel mad. He still wasn’t entirely sure why there was even a reason to be afraid, even with the vague explanation. Maybe being friends was a bit of a stretch since they had just met and were in very different stations in life, but they could have started down the path to friendship! Maybe even by the time they parted ways for the day they would have set up a time to get together again in the future to build a solid friendship.

It certainly didn’t seem like he was being taken advantage of, though F’drel said Raigan wanted to, not that he had been. How would he do it? He was being nothing but kind to him, which was pretty cool to have a Lord Holder pay such attention to him! Raigan was pretty handsome for an old guy as well so it seemed to have an even harder effect on R’dal and his admiration for the man. But he was a Lord Holder! They weren’t interested in men and R’dal knew that and wasn’t about to make a move on the Lord and didn’t even expect to one day be able to enjoy naps together like he did with all of his Weyr friends. So what the heck kind of being taken advantage of was F’drel talking about?

“Why do you always have to see the worst in everyone?” He blurted out, almost surprising himself with the question. But it was true! He loved F’drel and his grumpiness, but the greenrider really did seem to suspect everyone as an enemy and never wanted to be around groups or interact with anyone if he didn’t have to. Why?

The question caught F’drel by surprise and startled an answer from him. “Because I don’t want to get hurt again,” he said quietly, almost without thinking about the words he was saying, “or see the people I care about get hurt.” His siblings, R’dal, Mylorah, A’tay… Growing up, it was made clear to F’drel that no one else cared about him or his family, outside of what they could provide for someone. That was how it worked. People were either family or they were trying to find the best way to use you. And when you were a drudge, and even as a greenrider, there was no way to truly avoid being used by others, but there were ways to mitigate the damage. Constant vigilance and skepticism were ways to help achieve that. It was just how the world worked, even if it sucked.

And sometimes it was necessary to let someone use him to avoid something worse, but F’drel knew what he was getting into, and that made it easier to navigate, and he wasn’t surprised when people hurt him. It was expected. He didn’t have to like it, but he had to live it. And in the world, as he knew it, older lords didn’t just hang out with young dragonriders because they were friendly, it was because they thought they could get something from the dragonrider. The way that lord - Raigan, R’dal had said - had looked at R’dal was far too familiar to F’drel, and the sick feeling in his stomach was a clear enough indicator what the man was after from his friend. Just because R’dal didn’t recognize it didn’t mean it wasn’t there - the bluerider didn’t know what to look for. F’drel did, all too well.

After a few moments of silence what he’d said out loud caught up to F’drel and he flushed. He hadn’t meant to say something so personal in a public place, even if there didn’t seem to be anyone around other than him, R’dal, and dragons. It was still too much. But F’drel needed R’dal to understand.

Again? That would imply someone had hurt F’drel before and R’dal wasn’t a fan of that idea. The pout returned, but it wasn’t from being yelled at this time. How could anyone be cruel to F’drel? Why did it happen? Why couldn’t F’drel stop it? He wanted to know what happened and who did it but R’dal wondered if his friend was going into shutdown mode again because he realised he said too much. But even with that little insight, it helped R’dal figure out why F’drel was always guarded and how much of a burden he carried by constantly looking out for everyone he did care for.

It also meant F’drel was skilled in seeing what R’dal couldn’t and knew the signs of trouble. Maybe Lord Raigan was up to no good and that disappointed the bluerider because the man had been nice and not horrible company to be around. But if F’drel said to be careful, then he was going to try his best and be careful.

R’dal flung himself at F’drel, wrapping his arms around his friend’s waist and burying his face against a warm neck. “I’m sorry I make you worry. I’ll try to do better for you.” He didn’t want to be a burden to anyone, least of all a friend that was so dedicated to constantly keeping alert for everyone else. He supposed it was another drawback to growing up in a jungle. He knew how to spot danger when out in the trees where an animal could strike and sure, they had some shady people in Katila but not many and it was harder to get away with things given their small community. But he didn’t know what to expect from Holders and what went down at Gathers—F’drel obviously did and maybe he needed to give out some lessons but R’dal didn’t want to push him either.

“And you don’t have to tell me anything else if you don’t want to,” F’drel wasn’t exactly the type to share stories from his past and while R’dal couldn’t pick up on danger, he could pick up on when something troubled a friend. F’drel faced things he shouldn’t have and was it better or worse to share it with someone? That was the part R’dal wasn’t sure about but he didn’t want to pressure him if he wasn’t ready.

If F’drel had been thinking at all he would have expected R’dal’s reaction, but as it stood he was too lost in his own head; he flinched noticeably when R’dal first touched him. Thankfully the fact it was R’dal, someone safe, registered fairly quickly, and F’drel managed to relax into the hug, though he couldn’t stop himself from shaking.

“I want you to be careful for yourself, not for me,” F’drel said quietly, his cheek pressed to R’dal’s head. His breath moved R’dal’s hair when he spoke, tickling his face. He kept talking anyway.

“I can’t tell you here, but maybe some other time…” he trailed off, uncertain. Talking about it sounded awful, but despite what R’dal said about doing better F’drel didn’t think he’d truly be able to stick to it without understanding just what people were willing to do to others - liked doing, even. Hopefully R’dal would never get first hand experience to help him understand, but he had to get a better idea than he currently had.

He wouldn’t be hearing of it at the Gather, in any case. There was no way F’drel could speak of these things in public, especially since many of the people involved were possibly at the Gather. The thought made F’drel’s blood run cold; what if any of his siblings encountered any of the lords of Nabol? Any of them could have decided to attend the Gather. What if they saw his siblings and approached them? What if he was around?

“I need to find my sisters,” F’drel said suddenly, pulling away from R’dal and out of the hug. Why had he left them alone? Stupid, stupid greenrider, how could he berate R’dal when he’d also been an idiot? He really was terrible.

He was hugging F'drel and then suddenly he wasn't. R'dal rapidly blinked a few times as he got his bearings and then frowned yet again at why they were no longer hugging. His friend was a mess today and R'dal knew he had been the cause for it and that only made him feel even worse for not knowing when someone was dangerous. But he knew now not to trust Lords so he'd be careful around the next one he came across. He promised F'drel he would and he meant it!

Of course it made sense that F'drel would suddenly worry about his sisters, though since they grew up with F'drel, they probably had a better understanding of who was safe or not. Still, R'dal admired the protective big brother routine and hoped he was like that with his own siblings. He always tried to be there when they needed him but he probably wasn't very intimidating for keeping trouble away from them. He'd have to work on that as well.

But first, F'drel's siblings! "I'll help you look for them!" R'dal liked F'drel's sisters. Some of them reminded him of their brother though the youngest was a ball of energy and fun. He didn't get to see them too often since they all worked in a Hold and he didn't want to get them in trouble by distracting them from work, but every time F'drel needed help bringing them and the Lord and Lady anywhere, R'dal jumped at the chance to assist.

"Two pairs of eyes are better, right? And we can talk any time you're ready to. I'm always around for you." R'dal gave a brilliant smile and took F'drel's hand in his. He doubted that would last for long but for the moment, it helped get the point across that he really was there to help or listen or anything F'drel needed. They were friends after all!

F’drel nodded at R’dal’s offer of help, though he wasn’t totally listening. R’dal was safely away from the Lord for the moment, and if they were lucky - which F’drel rarely was - the man would forget all about the young bluerider he met at the Gather. He knew where R’dal was, which meant F’drel could confirm his (relative) safety. But he didn’t know where any of his siblings were, and therefore couldn’t be sure of any of their safety. As sure as he ever could be, anyway.

He very nearly tore his hand away when R’dal took it, forgetting for a split second that he knew exactly who was there, whose hand it was, but there was a second, stronger impulse to hold onto R’dal’s hand, tighter. The second impulse won for the moment. If R’dal was allowed to wander off on his own again, no matter what he intended, F’drel knew he would try to make friends with someone else he should never willingly interact with. Safer right there with F’drel. And maybe, just maybe, F’drel found the contact a tiny bit comforting. Wasn’t enough to bring him down from his panicked state, but it helped a little.

F’drel kept his grip on R’dal’s hand until they reached the end of the cover from lounging dragons, at which point his worries about a Holder seeing that won out, and he reluctantly dropped R’dal’s hand before they returned to the Gather proper.

“We’ll start where I last saw them,” he decided, heading in that direction. It sucked that Miri couldn’t just check in with one of them to ask where they were, but she wasn’t good at reaching other people that far in good conditions, and with the sheer number of people at the Gather there was no way she could find them. They just had to find them by looking, and F’drel walked quickly towards the stall he’d last seen the girls, constantly checking over his shoulder to confirm R’dal was still there, still safe, still with him.
