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!

B’jin wasn’t sure when he realised he was awake, only that he did. He extended his mind cautiously to Larrikith, his stomach knotting uncertainly at the prospect of her Flying – that was usually why he awoke at odd hours – but all he got from the dragon was the peacefulness of sleep. Deep sleep. So she wasn’t the cause, and B’jin gave a soft puff of relief, curling over and around, reaching out for R’nd… and came up empty. Blinking his eyes several times, as if that would help him see in the deep darkness of their bedroom, B’jin cautiously extended his hand further. His lover was definitely not there. Eyebrows knitting together, B’jin ran his hand over the sheets – cool to the touch. So R’nd had been gone for a while. That worried B’jin, and he chewed on his bottom lip as he slowly sat up. They’d gone to bed together, fallen asleep wrapped up in a tangle of limbs, but now he was alone.

Several long minutes were spent waiting for R’nd to come back, deciding that the bluerider had simply gone to the toilet, or perhaps down to the kitchens for a snack of some description. But he didn’t come back, and B’jin’s anxiety rose. The greenrider had been quieter than normal, the past few days; he hadn’t withdrawn, but he’d clearly been lost in his own thoughts, and B’jin suddenly worried that R’nd was upset about that. Maybe he thought B’jin was going to be a complete idiot again? With his breath catching in his throat, B’jin slipped noiselessly out of bed, and felt around quietly for a pair of pants. He found his super-soft, well-worn pyjama pants. Pulling them on, B’jin padded quietly out of the room, wondering where R’nd might have gone, and more than a little terrified that the bluerider had packed up in the middle of the night to start the new Turn somewhere far from B’jin.

Ice ran down B’jin’s spine at the thought.

Stepping into the living area, B’jin looked around quietly, his eye being drawn to the slightest shift of light; blinking, he followed it and found himself out on the ledge. It didn’t much to spot R’nd, a shadow in the moonlight and twinkle of the stars that were peeking through the clouds. Studying him for a few moments, B’jin joined R’nd quietly, stopping behind him and peering off the ledge. Larrikith was still dead to the world; Ayyonth didn’t have his eyes open, so B’jin wasn’t sure if he was interrupting or not. When R’nd didn’t acknowledge his presence, either to send him away or welcome him, B’jin stepped a bit closer, brushing his fingers along the back of R’nd’s shoulders. “Hey,” he murmured softly, voice barely above a whisper.

Lowering himself to the ground, B’jin scooted in close, pressing his chest to R’nd’s back and stretching his legs out alongside R’nd’s longer ones. His arms snaked loosely around R’nd’s waist, and B’jin pressed a soft kiss to the back of his mate’s neck. “Are you okay?” B’jin asked softly, his gaze flickering between R’nd’s cheek and the sky before them.

“Of course. Why wouldn’t I be?” R’nd replied, honest confusion in his voice as he rested his hands over B’jin’s. If anything, that was the question he should have been asking his mate. B’jin had been quieter than usual since Eridella’s dinner, which led the bluerider to wonder what he had done now. He really couldn’t think of anything but he had likely upset B’jin in some way and the man was starting to pull away again. Maybe something was simply said, again, and B’jin believed the crazy rumours over him, again. He hated thinking about that and how easily B’jin could doubt him and take the words of another to heart more than their years together. It had left R’nd being very careful about who he spoke to and what he did, knowing he’d mess up again somewhere and lose B’jin again. He wasn’t sure his heart could take that one more time.

“Going to bed early always throws me off and I wake early. I’m a night owl at heart.” R’nd added to help alleviate the anxiety he knew B’jin would still have. Because B’jin wouldn’t believe that he was fine and nothing was wrong. It was probably best not to point out that he did this every so often but it was the first time B’jin happened to catch him before slipping back to bed for a bit more sleep. “I usually sit with the dragons and chat with Ayyonth but apparently he has no issues with sleep tonight.” R’nd chuckled and gave his dragon an affectionate glance. They bickered regularly but they loved each other all the same and R’nd was thankful every day that Ayyonth chose him that fateful day.

“Oh,” B’jin said softly at R’nd’s explanation. He had been as confused as his lover; why would anyone be up and alone in the middle of the night, if something wasn’t wrong? But he took the words he was given, and mulled over them for a few minutes, letting the silence of the night surround them. There were little bugs making their low music, the wind, and the sky above. B’jin wasn’t really paying a whole lot of attention to any of that, though, as he hugged R’nd tightly for a fraction of a moment, and then loosed his grip again. He didn’t, however, release the bluerider.

“Rin?” B’jin asked softly, making sure he had his mate’s attention, eyebrows furrowed as he leaned slightly to the left so he could peer over R’nd’s shoulder and sort of at his face. The angle wasn’t ideal, and the darkness of the hour didn’t over help. “I’m sorry,” he said, the words whispering on an exhale. Trembling slightly, B’jin pressed his face to the crook of R’nd’s neck, breathing in the familiar scent of his mate. The greenrider rarely said the word ‘sorry’ – not because he didn’t feel it, but because it brought such terrible memories and emotions with it. Being beaten down until he sobbed the word on repeat, begging for it to all stop. Not a fun place to be taken by a single word. B’jin pressed a shaky kiss to the back of R’nd’s neck.

B’jin shifted slightly, uncomfortable, and not sure if he wanted to be more hidden from his mate, or to face him. He fiddled with the tie on R’nd’s pants; not in a sexual way, but in a completely oblivious and antsy manner that belied his mind going overtime. Taking a deep breath, B’jin breathed it out very slowly. “I love you, R’nd,” B’jin said softly, voice still barely above a whisper. “I… I know I fuck up, and I’m… insecure.” He paused, shifting uncomfortably and pressing his nose to R’nd’s neck, breathing him in again, grounding himself to that moment. “You’re so… different… from him, and I…” B’jin took another breath in, held it, and then slowly released it. “Even though its been…” B’jin paused and opted not to point out that he and R’nd had ben together for ten years, “a while.” He settled on. “things happen and I… expect it to be like it was, instead of like it is. With you. And I treat you badly. I’m sorry.”

That time, the word came easier to him, and B’jin shifted suddenly, pulling away, but only so he could scuttle around on his knees to stare at R’nd intently. “Rin, you are safe. You don’t… react… like he did… when I do… things.” A pause. “And I think that makes it… worse? In that moment? Because I get lost in what was my normal… and forget what is my normal now? I don’t want you to be like him. Not ever.” A pause, eyebrows furrowed together. “B-but maybe next time, you can tell me I’m being stupid… instead of, um, D’hys?” B’jin gnawed on his bottom lip for a moment, anxious and concerned. His time with D’hys had been the foundation for a lot of self-reflection, which had been set to motion when he’d overheard a couple of comments at the dinner. Not even all – if any – of them had been directly related to either B’jin or R’nd. But they’d resonated with the greenrider in a way that had made him anxious, uptight, withdrawn and ultimately ashamed.

“I don’t know why you love me,” B’jin whispered, curling in on himself and looking down at his hands, clasped together, fingers twined. “Or how you put up with me… but… please don’t stop?” Lifting his gaze, B’jin set pleading brown eyes on R’nd, trembling.

R’nd sat patiently, enjoying the night and B’jin wrapped around him. He knew the man was insecure even before B’jin confessed to it so he had a feeling the greenrider wasn’t out there because he was cold and lonely in bed but because something was finally weighing enough on him that it had to come out. So he waited, not saying anything, not pushing for it to happen so they could get over it and move on. Honestly, he also wasn’t sure exactly what would come. For all he knew, B’jin was about to confess to something silly like drinking the last bottle of wine—though he usually did that anyway. And with the first apology he still didn’t know what was coming but knew it was bigger than wine with how B’jin was acting.

Yes, he was treated badly sometimes. B’jin believing gossip and just leaving without a word was the biggest example and it still hurt. Everyone R’nd ever loved left him eventually. It was why he never formed attachments before B’jin, why he couldn’t give someone the commitment they wanted despite how well they got along and how well he treated them. He’d rather give his love to everyone, spreading it thin enough that it wouldn’t hurt when someone stopped coming around. He knew how cold he came off every time he broke a relationship off after a few weeks or even months, but he simply couldn’t let it go any deeper, knowing he’d be hurt in the end.

B’jin had just been the latest person in his life to prove him right. Together for a decade, finally able to admit to themselves they were mates and… gone. Tossed aside without a care. It had cut him deep and deeper yet with every hour and day that passed without a word. R’nd didn’t know what he’d done but he knew he deserved it and eventually figured out it was his friendships and how close he was to people despite having never once slept with anyone outside of a Flight since hooking up with B’jin.

“I once told you I was sorry for not sleeping around more so I guess this time I’m going to say sorry for treating you like a human and not hitting you,” R’nd finally spoke, softly, almost with a smile on his lips as he recalled the first major misunderstanding they had. He really didn’t know what he kept doing wrong to scare B’jin away. He was just himself and did what he was taught to do. His mother had always instilled kindness and compassion into her children—R’nd figured he got Pendalier’s share of both—and he didn’t know how to be anything different. Even in exile when it was only R’jit and him, they treated each other with kindness and respect and it helped them keep their humanity instead of losing it to the wilds of the jungle.

“Why would I do that, B’jin?” R’nd asked genuinely, as if it had never crossed his mind to go find his mate and correct things. Truthfully, it really hadn’t. Why go and have a verbal confirmation of what the action said clearly? “Assuming I even know what’s going on with you, if you left again, I wouldn’t chase you. You have your reasons and I’m not going to change your mind. What if you only came back because I said to and you didn’t really want to? That’s no better than beating you and dragging you home.” Mylorah was probably the closest he had been to being proactive in such an odd situation. When he found out about her and that she didn’t want to be in his life, R’nd didn’t do anything until his mom died. Only then did he give a ring to T’ryn to pass along to his sister and tell her he’d be there when she was ready.

“I honestly don’t know why either,” R’nd gave another small smile to B’jin. He really didn’t. B’jin wasn’t the picture perfect dragonrider that young Orwind had painted B’jin to be. B’jin was also constantly drinking, he was flighty, and didn’t trust his mate enough to talk to him when something major came up. He finally initiated contact this time, taking one of B’jin’s hands in his and giving it a light squeeze as he added, “but I do love you. I just do.”

B’jin flinched at R’nd’s words, cringing away from the bluerider as if he had hit him, but when he looked up at R’nd, B’jin’s eyes were sorrowful and his face was etched with shame. It wasn’t at his reaction, but rather that R’nd had thought something so terrible. The bluerider’s words made sense, and B’jin could even acknowledge that they did, but he didn’t have to like it. Not the bit about beating him, but about how it wouldn’t be any better to guilt him to come home than to drag him. A lifetime of being chased; as a desired Harper, and then as a desired greenrider, and then as a greenrider. Because he was a greenrider. B’jin expected it in a way he hadn’t even realised until that moment. He blinked at R’nd slowly, mind churning.

R’nd’s declaration had B’jin’s eyes softening, and he shifted – without breaking the gentle contact of holding hands – and shifted, pressing himself against R’nd’s side again, sitting so they were facing one another, the side of B’jin’s leg against R’nd’s. He wove their fingers together, still thinking over everything. “I’m going to try,” he said softly, looking up from their entwined fingers to frown at R’nd, searching his lover’s grey eyes. “I want to be better, than what they made me.” Sure, he’d always been spoiled and arrogant, but he hadn’t always been… everything else. Decades of N’mall and S’kef and however many of their cruel minions they’d let pick on him whenever they felt the need. He hadn’t even gotten relief during the plague, with N’mall bearing down on him, his brown bullying Larrikith. Was he too old to change so many decades of trained behaviour?

Reaching out with his empty hand, B’jin touched R’nd gently on the jawline, tracing along his jaw, brushing his fingers through some of R’nd’s delightfully if only slightly bed tossed hair. He gripped the side of R’nd’s face gently, brushing his thumb along the bluerider’s cheekbone. “Will you help me?” B’jin asked, slightly wary, before giving a wry grimace. “Not by, um, hurting me,” he added, nose scrunching up and shame coursing over his face again. The relief and agony that D’hys had brought him in his stint staying with that bluerider had been… euphoric. But only until he was kicked out the door. Once his brain had cleared of the fog and memories, and he’d staggered to the baths and cleaned himself up, B’jin had been overcome with such sickening shame. He hadn’t been able to hide the bruises from R’nd; he hadn’t tried, but nor had he flaunted them. They hadn’t spoken about it, but as much because B’jin couldn’t read the expression on his mate’s face as because he was drowning in his own horror and disgust. He let his hand lower gently back to his lap.

“When I was with N’mall,” he said softly, voice blank and emotionless, “I had to be… pre-emptive.” He shook his head slightly. “I had a slow learning curve,” he admitted, “I was very arrogant, and he was very effective at isolating me, even from Larrikith – he fed my hatred of her for ruining my life. Especially when it was he that did a lot of such.” He was staring at their hands as he spoke, the words tumbling free without stumbling. “I didn’t realise it then. Not for so long. Not until he hit Indamor when the children were staying with me. And N’mor just… took it.” He looked up at R’nd, heartbreak in his eyes, “like he’d seen me do.” B’jin pursed his lips, to keep them from trembling, and dropped his gaze back to their hands. “I didn’t care what he did to me, or anyone else. Fighting back was never a good move, but a child?” Nostrils flared, B’jin snorted in anger; it still made him seethe that anyone could pick on an innocent child.

That anger was what fuelled him kicking N’mall out, and kept him strong enough to tell Par’a what had happened. It was she, however, that kept him strong when the anger faded, and the fear came back. Fear of the punishment he’d get. Fear of being alone. Fear of being a failure as a mate. B’jin snorted and shook his head to himself. “Had a bit of a party after Par’a convinced me I was capable of being alone again,” he looked sideways at R’nd, lips twitching slightly. “Probably slept with most of Katila, though I still felt more comfortable being beaten up than not,” he flushed and looked down again. Taking a deep breath, B’jin looked back up again, seeking out R’nd’s gaze. “You were – are – the only one who really made me feel like more than a greenrider. Or a… a punching bag. Or a quick fix.” B’jin’s fingers woven with R’nd’s gave a gentle squeeze. “The only one who wanted to bring me pleasure not radiating with the pain.”

A silence fell as B’jin took a deep breath, and sighed it out softly. He yawned, a small one, and chewed on the inside of his cheek for a moment, considering how to continue. It was better when he didn’t take a break; the break to think and gather his thoughts was dangerous, and left him filled with insecurities and worries and confusion. Better to just babble on without a pause and hope R’nd could digest most of it. All of it. Hopefully. “Sometimes,” he said slowly, frowning to himself as he tried to find the right words. “That’s frightening. Sometimes,” he went on, glancing up to frown at R’nd, worried, “everything he beat into me finally gets the best of me, and it bubbles up,” he held his free fist against his heart, gesturing vaguely like there were a level there, lifting all the awfulness upwards.

“I hear something, or mishear something. I see something. And he’s there, an awful whisper more clear than even Larrikith’s voice. Saying ‘see? See?’ and gloating as all those things seem to become true and I break, Rin, I can’t do it. I need it to stop, it has to stop because the voice is right and I have to get away – I need to run. So I run. I run away because you’re not like him – you won’t chase me down. You won’t beat me and tell me how right that voice is and how terrible I am. How you can do so much better, how I can’t survive without you to keep me in line, how I need to be punished. Because I’m not worthy. I’m not. I’m a stupid, stupid little greenrider who—” B’jin was trembling as he visibly wrenched himself out of the memories and the onslaught of words, and he clung tighter to R’nd’s hand, grounding himself with an anxious glance at Larrikith – but the dragon slept on, and after a few moments and a lot of deep breaths, B’jin’s trembling decreased.

“Sorry,” B’jin breathed, looking anxiously up at R’nd. “I need you to help,” B’jin said seriously, firmly, marching on though his gaze was still as insecure and fearful as ever. “Not to be like them. Or even to chase me, if you don’t want to. But to help keep their damned shadows from fucking with us anymore.” B’jin scowled, “I can’t do it alone.” Clearly. He’d been fighting those demons alone for their entire relationship, and even though he hadn’t realised it until this last fuck up, that didn’t excuse him. That didn’t make up for his past idiocy; but if R’nd could help him. If R’nd could … “I don’t even know how,” B’jin admitted. He had no idea what R’nd could do, or how he could do it. All he knew was that he needed R’nd, because R’nd was all the glorious goodness he had been convinced he could never have. And had almost unwittingly followed through on; he hated that it had taken so long for him to put the puzzle together, but maybe – maybe – it wouldn’t be too late, and they could be everything B’jin didn’t realise he was preventing them from being.

“I want to be with you. I want to be worthy to be with you.” He paused, leaning forward and gently pressing a couple of fingers against R’nd’s heart. “I want to feel worthy of you, Rin.”

R’nd was used to B’jin talking but not really saying anything as the man enjoyed babbling about whatever came to mind. Now that he was, it was hard to keep up. He didn’t think he was really expected to interject with even a noise to show he was listening so he didn’t bother, letting B’jin get out everything he’d bottled up for far too long while also trying to listen to what was being said.

He had never liked N’mall and hearing more about the relationship instead of basing it off of rumours made R’nd hate the man to the very depths of his being. It was hard to make him hate someone but there were a few out there that had rightfully earned it by hurting someone close to him and learning exactly how horrible N’mall had been made R’nd see red. How dare that man not only hit B’jin but then go after N’mor? R’nd had started out uneasy around the child with his stare that went right through you, but he’d never wish harm on the boy and now viewed him as part of his hopefully no longer growing collection of children.

He pushed away thoughts of how to remove N’mall permanently as B’jin brought up his old party ways and R’nd managed a small smile of his own. He hadn’t needed a reason to binge on good times and slept his way through Katila simply because he loved people and the connection sex created between them. Was one reason better than the other? His was probably worse since he knew broken hearts trailed behind him so his own would be safe.

He treated everyone like a cherished person that should be loved and given pleasure and it still baffled R’nd that B’jin didn’t understand that that feeling was normal and that it frightened the greenrider. But he didn’t say anything, letting the man find his thoughts. It was better than rushing him or interrupting him. B’jin had a way of shutting down under the slightest bit of pressure so R’nd waited, stewing in sadness brought on by the life B’jin had endured because of horrible men.

And then B’jin was saying what he had been thinking just then and regularly since the last time B’jin left. How easy it was for B’jin to believe the worst no matter how hard R’nd tried to be the best person on Pern. How he was just never going to be what B’jin needed or wanted. By the time B’jin was close to hyperventilating, R’nd was wide-eyed and unsure of what to say or do but he returned the grip on his hand, trying to convey yet again that he was still there.

But was that really what was needed? B’jin said he needed help and couldn’t defeat the demons alone but R’nd wasn’t sure they could do it together either. Once, he would have pointed to the last ten years as proof of how much he himself had changed and how perfect the world was now that he and B’jin were together. They could conquer anything together. Now, he didn’t think that was true. It was all starting to feel very one-sided as he looked back on the memories. He really hadn’t been good enough for B’jin or what the man needed and perhaps he had been arrogant to think that he had been helping the man heal by showing him love and compassion instead of being abusive.

Maybe he should be the one to walk away this time. What proof was there that B’jin would actually try this time? That he was ready to actually change? R’nd had seen the bruises his lover sported when he came back from staying with D’hys and it made him worry that B’jin had relapsed and wanted the beatings again. Maybe he would be fine again for another ten years.

But he knew he wouldn’t do that. Like he had said, he loved B’jin for some reason and couldn’t leave the man alone. Couldn’t stand to see him suffer and would probably wait for him to come home again the next time something did scare the greenrider away.

He placed a hand over B’jin’s that lingered over his heart. “Of course I’ll help. We’ll figure it out together.” He almost promised that they would but R’nd wasn’t sure how to do it and he hated breaking his promises so he refrained from it and instead opened his arms for B’jin to come in for a hug if he wanted it.
