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!

We are officially open for our relaunch, and are excited to meet and greet new RPers! We're currently looking for all types of characters, including Weyrleaders and goldriders!

If you have any questions, feel free to hit us up in the Cbox or Discord chats, which can be found on the lower part of the screen.

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.

June 2017

We are on the brink of relaunching! Our history is being rewritten and cleaned up! We are accepting new members, and old! Our advertisment has been re-written, and will be put out there soon. We are also accepting affiliates of all descriptions, genres and themes! If you would like to affiliate with us, please go here
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.

It was hard, sometimes, being so close to home again and yet still so far away. Ivonen hadn't taken any steps to bar him from seeing his children, but he would have to be blind not to see the discomfort his presence brought to her new marriage. S'laire didn't even remember the man's name--Tallin,--but he could see, could feel the way he would look at him when he didn't think S'laire would notice. But Luxilth was always watching. Sometimes in a creepy way, but S'laire had grown accustomed to the blue's random outbursts of observation.

It helped far more often than it was a hindrance, so S'laire let it continue. They didn't talk about it, though. It was something like an unspoken agreement between them that they just carry on, collecting and sharing tidbits of knowledge no matter how mundane it appeared.

Evening always brought with it a certain peace; the Weyr tended to be on the quieter side, with everyone going about their evening chores or getting their hands on something to eat. That was, in fact, what S'laire had been planning on doing--was doing, in fact, and studiously ignoring his dragon's constant string of comments. Ignored wasn't exactly the right word, though, because every word the dragon said was heard and noted and savored.

It wasn't always this easy, though. They both had their fair share of trouble at the start, figuring each other out and learning how best to help one another function in a world that S'laire, at least, didn't particularly want to be in. There was no denying that a dragon had been the last thing he'd wanted...until he had one.

And that was the rub, wasn't it?

Luxilth never took it personally; how could he, when he'd been able to see why S'laire had such a hard time with everything the first couple months after Impression. It had taken significantly longer for Luxilth's frustration to work itself out, but as with everything else: they managed. Together. And by now S'laire didn't think he could even imagine his life being any different than it is.

Though in retrospect maybe he still wished, a little too hard, that he could have his family back--but that was doubly absurd, wasn't it, because as Luxilth was ever-keen to point out...he had a new family now. And so did she.

They had their own separate lives now, and while a part of him craved the life he'd been torn away from he knew that Ivonen had moved on. As long as she didn't keep him from seeing her or their children, he could deal with a little disgruntled glaring from Ivonen's new man. Tallin was free to moan and whine all he wanted as long as S'laire still got to set eyes on the kids and their mother.

Must we linger on such morose thoughts? the blue asked idly after a while, and S'laire winced apologetically.

'No,' he said simply, finishing the final bite of his bread and pushing away from the table he had claimed for himself. Upon walking outside S'laire glanced up, shading his eyes against the energetic glare of the setting sun. While Fort had always felt a lot more secure, safer than Katila in a way that he couldn't really describe, even S'laire had to admit that there was a lot more variety in evening activities in the southern Weyr compared to what was available in Fort. Being nestled in the middle of a mountain range certainly had its detriments.

He could just see the familiar shape of Luxilth sprawled on a ledge a ways off to one side and several dragonlengths in the air, almost unusually still in his relaxation. That only lasted a moment before the sleek blue head rose, looking off across the Bowl with sudden interest.

Someone comes.

It had been a long day for Rhaedalyn and R'nya, working hard like every other day since the meeting on organizing the supplies needed to help prepare Benden as well as doing the full roster rotations. So far only a small group from each Weyr had been going to survey the old Weyr and making notes of what needed to be done and which sections seemed the best to focus on first and which needed to be roped off as they were unsafe. It was going to be a big project and she wondered how they managed to get two open at the same time previously. Though, Ista was already small and they only opened about half of it to begin with so that likely helped.

She finally dragged both of them out of their offices and sent R'nya back to their weyr to check in on the girls while she promised to go get them some late dinner. She was humming to herself as she walked through the Bowl and smiled when she spotted someone recently exiting the dining cavern. She was tired but Rhaedalyn had learned early on to hide it and to never ignore the people she had somehow been put in charge of. She was also much more comfortable talking to people in general now instead of going red with embarrassment or trying to run away from being too shy.

"Good evening, S'laire!" She liked the bluerider. He was one of the Stolen, like her, and while she kept more to herself or with R'nya and the other gold candidates, she did still cross paths with other people and found the Harper had some lovely stories in him so she sometimes sat with him at meals or in the evening when everyone lazed around the Square chatting or playing games. Of course he also wasn't always thrilled with being in Katila and the return North seemed to have been hard on him as well but Rhaedalyn was confident he was making it all work out and would get through it. She wouldn't be herself if she didn't hope for the best in everyone and everything.

"How have you been? I feel like we haven't properly chatted in forever. The perks of paperwork," Rhaedalyn rolled her eyes and chuckled as she made fun of her station and how it kept her out of sight some days.

A small, pleased smile crossed S'laire's face at the sight of Rhaedalyn, and at her greeting. Even before she'd Impressed to Aradissicath he'd been rather fond of her, their shared status of being Stolen something of a connection that she'd used to her advantage in subtly working her way under his shell. Whatever worries he'd had about her dragon's shiny hide changing the way she treated her friends was proven, rather quickly, to be a foolish thing, though of course there was no denying the fact that things were different.

She didn't turn crimson and forget how to speak every time someone looked in her direction, for one thing. She was good at reading people--or maybe she was particularly good at reading him--and had become quite talented with getting him talking without making S'laire feel like he was being interrogated, or judged.

"Evening, Weyrwoman," he greeted once she'd made it close enough that he didn't have to shout at her. The smile still curved his lips as she neared, and it only proved to get more and more distinct, harder to hide as Rhaedalyn came to a halt. "It has been rather busy of late," he mused, "but we've been managing. I won't hold the silence against you." He leveled a look on her, a little more searching. "What about you?" He knew enough about the Weyrleadership to know that hers was not an easy responsibility, though he supposed that it must have been at least slightly less overwhelming with her station and her training as a gold candidate and then a gold rider.

And that didn't even begin to take into account the Weyrleader himself and that particular relationship. R'nya was...well, R'nya, and he supposed her children were no small task to wrangle either.

"You look good," he said quietly after a moment, head tilted slightly to one side as his gaze took her in again. "Not that you don't always, but you look...happy." He shrugged, and glanced away for a moment. "And I guess I can't leave your golden lady out, either. Still as resplendent as always?" He grinned.

Rhaedalyn wrinkled her nose at being called Weyrwoman. It wasn't that S'laire was wrong in doing so, but she still had moments of feeling awkward when people used it and especially hated it when a friend did so. No comment was made on it, though, as she figured it was done more for the benefit of anyone walking by as they were in a public space but if he did it again, she'd consider wrinkling her nose in distaste at him even harder than she currently.

But she let it drop when he gave her a once over and smiled at his compliment and explanation. "Thank you but I won't agree with you most days on if I look good," she was often tired--more from her daughters than actual Weyrwoman things--and her curls sometimes got away from her and made her look rather wild but she could agree with one thing, "but I am happy. Tired, but happy. Aradissicath on the other hand is radiant and ecstatic. She's so happy to be back on her Sands, as she puts it. I'm so happy she doesn't Fly again right after a Hatching though I wouldn't put it past her to try!"

Even I like to stretch my wings a bit more regularly than what a Flight can offer so we'll stick with the current routine. Rhaedalyn bit her lip to keep from laughing at her dragon's distaste of being constantly on the ground despite the amount of love she had for sprawling out in the Sands. Gold dragons did what they wanted and it didn't matter if it was contradictory to five minutes earlier.

"Anyway, enough of golds. You and Luxilth should visit again soon. Varlea loves her blues and a certain fellow hasn't come by lately." It wasn't surprising that her children loved blue dragons given so many of their mother's friends rode blue. Varlea's actual parents were blueriders and came by from time to time, then there was D'hys who was always around and Zeianth even tolerated the kids for a short time. R'nd, T'bia, and even the sweetest boy R'dal came by regularly, winning the hearts of all of her girls. Thinking on it, Rhaedalyn now understood R'nya's random comment once about their daughters running off with a bluerider. Guess it wasn't so off-handed after all.

It was a testament to how tired she was that Rhaedalyn didn't stop to think before speaking about her daughters. She knew S'laire had been plucked up out of his perfect life with a family and a Craft to be brought to Katila and also knew that the family wasn't in the Weyr with him now, though she didn't have much more information than that. As much as she wanted to help her friends, Rhaedalyn hated prying or pushing them too much but knew S'laire would share what and when he wanted to.

Still, just in case he purposely didn't visit much because of memories, she offered him a quick alternative with a mischievous grin. "Luxilth can play with them while I play with your hair. You still haven't let me braid flowers in it and you promised I could do that the day before you Impressed. Don't you think I ever forgot, Sithulaire." To be fair, he had Impressed and six months later, she Impressed as well so they had been a bit busy at the time. Then add in the move North and finally opening more Weyrs... still, Rhaedalyn was happy to pretend S'laire was purposely avoiding it and that it hadn't been eight years ago that the promise was made.

S'laire feigned a grimace at Rhaedalyn's comment, though he couldn't quite smother the grin that pulled at his lips at the same time. "There's not much to play with, lately," he said after a moment, one hand raised to pull through his shorter hair somewhat self-consciously.

"But..." and now he really laid on the drama, heaving a heavy sigh and not bothering to hide the widening smile on his face. "A promise is a promise. Give us a time and we'll be there with bells on." Perhaps a little bit of an exaggeration, but S'laire figured Rhaedalyn might just forgive him for it when they showed up at all.

It was never easy to think about his family, but S'laire wasn't the type to begrudge those whose family life was happier than his own. Sometimes he even enjoyed listening to such stories, if only for fodder for situations to imagine his own family in, if things had been different. The thought never crossed his mind to be anything other than happy for those he cared about--especially when he wasn't particularly forthcoming about his own familial situation. He knew that Rhaedalyn suspected at least the basics, but she'd never broached the subject and he was content to let things remain that way for now.

He'd always known that he wasn't the only victim of the kidnappings, and knew very well that his situation certainly wasn't the worst that there was. The Stolen had tended to gravitate to each other during their Candidacy, though S'laire had remained on the fringes even of that sect. Mostly by choice. Of course, Rhaedalyn hadn't given him much of a choice in the matter, and her attempts to befriend him had always been so earnest and honest that he didn't have the heart to push her away.

One of the best decisions he hadn't had to make, as it turned out. Luxilth crooned his quiet agreement.

It's good to have friends, he intoned to both his rider and Rhaedalyn, and S'laire didn't bother trying to smother the impulse to roll his eyes. The thought that his dragon was simply trying to find friends for him, S'lair, always brought a grin to his face and a warm rush to his chest; a little sappy, of course, and not entirely the reason Luxilth was always so nosy, but it was a nice thought.

“It is,” Rhaedalyn agreed, while looking around for the beautiful boy and smiling at him when she spotted him a bit in the distance on a ledge. Some dragons feared bespeaking her, afraid of what Aradissicath would do, especially when she was egg heavy and cranky, but the gold didn’t mind. Sometimes it was needed for the job, sometimes it was needed just as a friend and Aradissicath was on the same page as Luxilth—friends were good to have.

“Actually, Dissi plans to tell stories to some of the younger dragons tomorrow evening. How about the two of you join us on the sands? Luxilth can mingle with the dragons and I’ll bring the flowers for your hair, and if you bring the bells, I might let you add them to my hair.” She grinned, knowing the expression and what S’laire meant by it but also in love with the idea of at least one of them jingling as they parted ways. A part of her wondered if dressing Alyren in bells would help keep track of the girl that was getting quick and sneaky.

“I promise I won’t put in too many if you bring a bottle of wine,” she often had a glass with R’nya in the evening to help unwind after the day before bed, but Rhaedalyn felt like having some drinks with a friend while they caught up in greater detail when they weren’t standing outside the dining cavern sounded like a wonderful idea. “Unless you think getting your Weyrwoman tipsy is inappropriate. But as your Weyrwoman, I could also order you to drink with me, though I like it better asking as a friend to share some drinks with me while we just have fun. Assuming neither of us have forgotten how to have fun!” She laughed, though she really hoped that wasn’t the case! She liked to think she was at the very least still good company.
