Month 05, 741 AL

North: Late Spring | South: Late Autumn
9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C

Ista is heating up swiftly, and preparing for a rough summer - hopefully nothing like the one from a couple turns before with the wildfires! The rest of Northern Pern is warming upsomewhat slower, but with no less gusto as summer begins to creep into the sky, keeping the sun awake longer, warming the ledges of the weyrs. Rainstorms are sporadic, but keep the world well watered, despite the heat of the days.

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, 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.

Month 09, 739 AL
North: Early Autumn| South: Early Spring
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!

Month 03, 739 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 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.

Gold Nadioth of Vaeyla, of Ista's flight was won by bronze Rhezalth of N'mor. You can view the Flight Thread here! Gold Aradissicath of Fort has brought about a clutch of [TBA] eggs!

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.

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....

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].

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!

The Secret Santa Event has been extended until the 30th of January, so for those of you (like me!) who were busy over the end of December, we hope you can get your threads up and running over the next few weeks! There has been a lot of interesting interactions so far! As we extended the SSE, there won't be a specific January event this month! Don't worry though, we have something up our sleeve for February!

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!

With the end of December, our Christmas layout has gone back into hiding! You'll be able to use it again at the end of the year, when Christmas again rolls around. You can expect a new layout for the site in the near future.

December 2017

And so it is December! Can’t believe how fast this year is flying by! At any rate, we have LOTS of fun for you this month! For starters, why don’t you sign up for our Secret Santa Event! Pairs will be assigned on the 14th! You can sign your character(s) up as a Giver, a Receiver or Both! We also hope that you enjoy our Christmas layout, which will be available for use for the entire month of December! After that, it will go into hiding until next Christmas!

We will also be awarding the HORRIFYING MOMENTS stamps to those who qualified for them, as well as the WORDS OF THE MONTH for November. We hope you enjoyed these Events, and you can expect more of them in the upcoming year!

This month we will also be focusing on the RP Records, and request you submit all your threads here so we can update the Timeline! As it says in the thread, the Timeline will be updated every month, in the first week. To help us maintain, be sure to submit your threads as soon as you open them!

November 2017

Welcome to November! We'd love it if you would take the time to Vote in our Horrifying Moments threads! We will also be awarding Stamps for people who vote, not just those who took part! We hope you enjoyed this event as much as we did! You can see the Stamps that will be awarded in the Horrifying Moment's thread.

This month we are doing a 'Words of the Month' event! You can choose your word/s as indicated in the thread, and may particpate with as many characters as you desire! This contest has no voting to earn stamps; you get a stamp just for participating! Enjoy!

October 2017

Welcome to October! As part of our Halloween celebrations, the Horrifying Moments event is now open! You may START a thread at any point during the month of October to qualify it for the event! We hope you have a lot of fun with this event, and we look forward to reading your threads! Don't forget to "Like" the threads you enjoy most, so we can award someone the MOST HORRIFYING stamp! Stamps will be revealed later in the month!

September 2017

Welcome to September! This month, we're working on our Awards for the site! We are also advertising avidly! Please welcome any guests or new members with all that warm charm we know you all posess! That said, we are still seeking Affiliates, so if you're here to drop an ad, please consider us!

Our next PC Clutch will be in the new year, so now is the pefect time to join with old candidates (how many clutches have they stood for now?!) and candidate hopefuls! Get those eager young men and women out there and grow them so we can match them with their perfect lifemate when the new year rolls around and one of our lovely golds throws a clutch on the Sands -- At this point in time, the Weyrs are sharing Candidates, so your Candidate can be Searched by any Weyr, and transfer to the one holding the PC clutch!

August 2017

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! But we also have lots of room for green and blueriders, weyrfolk, candidates, and all types of Hall folk, such as Masters, Journeymen and Apprentices. 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.

F’drel paced the small weyr Quinvalis had been brought to after the Hatching. R’nya had temporarily put Quinvalis in a weyr instead of in the Healers’ room to recover in so his mother could stay close by. If the way they’d been acting at the Hatching hadn’t been enough, the private room definitely confirmed R’nya was sleeping with her. Typical. It fit what F’drel knew of the Fort Weyrleader, certainly.

For once he wasn’t going to complain too much about the dubious favoritism. Since it was an unused weyr, there was space for Miri to stay too, so F’drel didn’t have to worry about her and she could stay close. She’d been distraught about Quinvalis getting hurt, and other than taking F’drel’s sisters home to Ista, she hadn’t left the small weyr. Quinvalis was her friend, and she was worried. F’drel couldn’t think of many times Halomirth had been more worried. The fires in Ista, maybe? It was hard to tell, her worry was compounding with his own making it difficult to sort out.

Quinvalis had woken briefly the night before. He hadn’t been very coherent, and the Healers had given him something almost immediately so he would go back to sleep - to keep him from moving around and aggravating the injuries, as well as to keep the pain down, they’d said - but he’d been awake. Which was a good sign. It could only be a good sign.

F’drel hadn’t meant to stay the night in Fort, but he’d been woken up by a Healer in the small hours of the morning after falling asleep in a chair by the bed Quinvalis was in and directed to a small cot set up nearby. He’d been too tired to protest - though he had moved the cot into a corner and closer to the door to where Halomirth was - and F’drel found arguing with Healers was rarely a good idea. Quilriana had been given a cot from the start; they’d expected her to stay, F’drel was a surprise. It was a surprise to him too, but here he was, back in the same chair he’d fallen asleep in, waiting. At some point he’d have to oil Halomirth, but he could definitely get R’dal or someone to bring some oil to the ledge so they would both stay nearby, just in case.

It had been forty-eight hours since her son had been mauled. Everything was a blur to her and she felt numb but Quilriana was well aware of the passage of time. The more time that passed, the more likely Quinvalis would be fine. They had gotten him through the crucial first few hours with stitches, bandages, and sedation. Eb'zer was a dear with his constant updates and positive outlook on the situation. She needed that because Quinvalis had looked dead when she first saw him. So much blood covering his motionless body.

She wouldn't have left the room, let alone the weyr if it wasn't for the greenrider Healer. He insisted her son would be fine and it was okay for her to slip off to have a bath and take some time for herself. She hadn't wanted to leave--what if he woke up again while she wasn't there?--but finally Quilriana agreed that a quick bath and a stretch of her legs would do her well, so she left early morning while her surprise roommate still slept.

F'drel wasn't much of a conversationalist but his concern for Quinvalis was genuine and that was enough for her. A little small talk was also nice to help keep her from going insane as she sat by her son's side, staring at his sweet face and hoping he'd wake--or she would wake from the obvious nightmare.

That was why she went down to the kitchen after her bath to grab them some food and especially klah. She'd noticed the day before that the man enjoyed it and would likely need some more than the little pot leftover from the day before they had in the weyr. She nodded a greeting to the Healer that was currently milling around as he likely just changed the bandages--something she knew they tried to do when she wasn't there to see the wounds--and then continued into the bedroom where she found F'drel back in 'his' chair by the bed.

Quilriana smiled at the sight, happy that Quinvalis had made such a good friend. She didn't want to speculate if that connection ran any deeper and hadn't asked F'drel for confirmation since she didn't want to put him on the spot, but if they were an item, she approved. The tray of food was set down on a table and the two mugs of klah picked up. She handed one to F'drel with a small smile as she came up beside him.

"Figured you would appreciate a fresh cup and they're going to bring up a pot in a bit as well." She moved around the bed and took what was now her chair and carefully took Quinvalis' fingers in her free hand. Everywhere was so bandaged that she had asked Eb'zer where she could hold her baby without causing more pain and fingers seemed to be the best option. "Quinnie's not a fan of klah. He likes the smell but has never liked the taste. His sister loves it though, which I hear is a good thing with all the studying she has at the Healer Hall."

The sound of the door opening had F’drel looking up, though he returned to watching Quinvalis once he’d confirmed it was just Quilriana returning. She looked a little more put together than he did at that moment, but she had probably gone to clean up and eat real food while she was out of the weyr. Which made sense, even if F’drel was a little surprised she had left Quinvalis with no one watching him - she hadn’t been there when F’drel woke up, after all. F’drel hadn’t felt comfortable leaving him alone, and even if Quilriana had been there asleep he probably wouldn’t have considered that sufficient. And if he was this bad with a fairly casual friend he couldn’t imagine how he’d be if it were R’dal who was hurt and unconscious, or Faranth forbid, one of his siblings. He’d be an absolute mess.

He blinked up at the offered mug, accepting it with a quiet thanks. Klah was always good. F’drel knew he probably drank too much of the stuff, but it was better than some of the possible alternatives. Fellis, for example. Klah didn’t do that to you, and it gave him something to busy his hands with, both making it and holding a mug. Before even considering saying anything else F’drel took a few sips of the warm drink.

“One of my sisters is the same,” he said finally, spinning the mug in his hands and resuming watching Quinvalis, “Loves the smell, can’t stand drinking it. She would sometimes take a mug to smell it and warm her hands, then when she was bored of that she’d give it to me to actually drink it.” F’drel wasn’t good at small talk, and he was loathe to impart any information about his family that could be used against them, but Quilriana needed the distraction and a sister not liking klah was benign enough.

“Have you sent word to Quilista yet?” F’drel asked, wondering if she’d done that while she was out of the weyr that morning. He’d have sent word immediately, but he didn’t know Quilista, and he wasn’t her mother, so F’drel wasn’t going to tell Quilriana what to do. Even if he thought she really should have by then.

F'drel never said too much but she appreciated when he tried and gave him a little smile as he shared the story about a sister. Knowing that he was an older brother made his concern make more sense to Quilriana, though again, it didn't take away from the theory that the greenrider was involved with her son either. Still, she was once again grateful Quinvalis had F'drel in his life in any capacity.

She nodded at the question and took a sip of her klah. "Yesterday morning. I wanted to have some good news to send so she wouldn't worry as much but I also told the messenger to stand firm. She's not allowed to see him until her brother is awake and says she can." She set her mug down and gently brushed aside some of his hair. "He wouldn't want her to see him like this. He's always been so good with looking after her."

Quinvalis really had been a gem when the kids were little and couldn't help in the tavern. He'd keep them both entertained up in their little room or play outside out of the way. Then when they were older and could help clean or prep, he continued watching over her, letting no one or anything harm her. Quilriana knew he wouldn't want his sister to see him in pain or looking so weak. He'd probably even try to hide the injuries if he could. Sweet but stubborn boy.

"Mom?" Quinvalis winced at how hoarse he sounded due to how dry his mouth was but he wasn't sure if he was hallucinating or not as his eyes fluttered open. He felt what he assumed was her hand squeeze his fingers and he gave a weak smile before letting his eyelids that felt so heavy close again.

When next he woke, he wasn't aware of how much time had passed but he did see F'drel this time and he frowned in confusion. He was happy to see his friend but hadn't he just seen his mom? He glanced around the room and saw his mom sitting on the other side of the bed and that only confused him further. His mind was so foggy and he struggled to come up with why they would both be waiting for him to wake up.

"Are you sleeping together?" Quinvalis gasped in pain as he tried to sit up before sinking back down into the bed. He tried clearing his throat and swallowed a couple of times, finding his mouth still too dry. "Or I'm not actually dead and you've been waiting for me." The pain jarred some sense back into him and he recalled the Hatching and the frightened blue tangling with him and how he was convinced he wasn't going to survive. Apparently he had, at least for now, who knew how bad his injuries were?

"Did the blue hatchling survive?" He didn't blame the boy for what had happened and hoped he had found his mate. Quinvalis didn't want to think about the blue going between afraid and alone.

Quinvalis’ reluctance for his sister to see him hurt made perfect sense to F’drel, and he nodded at Quilriana’s words. He was the same, after all, never wanted his siblings to see him as anything other than a rock for them to hold onto. Seeing him falling apart wouldn’t help with that. That reluctance was a good part of why he’d withdrawn more from his siblings the last few turns F’drel was in Nabol, not wanting any of them to have an idea of how poorly he was dealing with everything.

He would have said something to the effect of understanding how Quinvalis felt when F’drel saw Quinvalis shift slightly and the words died immediately. F’drel held his breath as Quinvalis opened his eyes for a moment, just long enough to recognize his mother and say one word - mom - before his eyes were closing again. Long moments passed and F’drel sat perfectly still, looking for any sign Quinvalis would regain consciousness soon.

It took maybe another fifteen minutes for Quinvalis to stir again and as soon as the movement registered F’drel’s focus, which had wavered a little when it was clear Quinvalis wouldn’t be awake again within a few minutes, went right back to trying to catch every little sign he was waking up and would be okay. He watched Quinvalis’ eyes open again, and look around briefly, but as soon as he spoke F’drel almost choked on air. Were they what? How much pain medicine had the Healers given him? What kind of question was that? Why the fuck had it ocurred to Quinvalis? Whatever, not important. Because Quinvalis had moved on, saying something about how he’d thought he was dead and F’drel couldn’t help reaching forward to gently rest his hand against the one Quin’s mother wasn’t holding. Some vague thought about more physical evidence of other people might help reassure Quinvalis he was alive, and his hands were fine, as evidenced by his mother holding one. And then Quinvalis was asking if the blue was okay, because of course he was, Quinvalis was just that nice. It really was no wonder Miri liked him so much.

“He Impressed, though I have no idea who to. I wasn’t paying attention,” F’drel said quietly. “I’m sure he’s fine.” He felt a subdued nudge in his head, quite unlike Miri’s usual boisterousness, and F’drel sent her waves of reassurance, along with plenty of images of Quinvalis awake, even if all the bandages might reduce the effect.

“Miri’s here too and is glad you’re awake. She’s worried your head’s still too fuzzy for her to talk to you directly, but when you’re feeling better she’s just on the other side of that wall,” F’drel said, passing along Halomirth’s message. She let out a soft trill in F’drel’s head, again not wanting to disturb Quinvalis, glad her well wishes and concern were made known.

Quilriana smiled when Quinvalis first saw her and sighed as he slipped back into unconsciousness. It was probably better for him as he wouldn't feel as much pain or realise how much he had endured but she just wanted her baby boy back. She wished it hadn't happened at all but knowing he was recovering just showed how strong he was and she was so proud of him.

Even more so when he woke again and asked after the hatchling that had attacked him. Of course that came after her heart broke upon hearing that he was surprised he was alive. She couldn't imagine what he thought out on the sands before passing out and all she wanted to do was hold him and never let go again. But she didn't do that, didn't even shed another tear as she tried to show she was as strong as Quinvalis.

"Rhaedalyn came by yesterday to check in on you. She also mentioned the blue is doing well and Impressed to a wonderful man but I can't recall either name at the moment. I'll find out again for you, though." Quilriana knew her son would want to know the details and she also saw the relief when F'drel said the blue lived. Quinvalis would have blamed himself forever if he hadn't, she didn't doubt that.

Quinvalis relaxed upon hearing the blue lived and had a good mate. He could have been the reason the little guy didn't Impress and vanished. What if he'd panicked too much or worried about hurting a human and just couldn't handle it? But he didn't have to think that. The blue lived and apparently, so had he. That was a lot more than he was expecting and a small part of him was sad that he survived but the rest of him was glad, especially as he saw how worried his mom was and heard that even Halomirth was worried. And the fact that F'drel was there as well meant a lot to him and made him fully aware of how much that egg at the Touching was right. He was loved.

"Miri! I'll visit her soon, promise." He smiled and wanted to hug his favourite green dragon but since moving anything at the moment hurt, he suspected hugs weren't in his near future. Maybe he could ask for a bed out on the ledge so he can just hang out with the dragons. Xyreith might even stop by then--not that there would be any conversing with him but Quinvalis didn't mind the silence either.

"Should I ask how bad it is?" He could feel where a lot of pain was coming from and when he wiggled his toes, he felt them all as well, so that was a good sign. It also felt like all of his insides were still inside so that was nice. "Think there will be scars? Some girls like that, right?" He cracked a small smile as he joked about it though everything really did still hurt and he was afraid to know how bad it all was.

“Worry about healing, don’t go making promises about visiting anyone yet,” F’drel said with a soft sigh at Quinvalis’ sheer determination to make people happy, barely a minute into consciousness after a major injury. “Miri will wait to see you until you’re ready.” Halomirth nodded her head vigorously in agreement, though no one could see it.

To Quin’s question, F’drel just shook his head. “I’m no Healer, so I really don’t know. Do what they tell you and don’t aggravate anything if you can help it, and you can reduce scarring. Once it’s healed more I know you can massage the new skin with oil, like you would a dragons’ hide, and that helps some. But,” he continued, unconsciously switching more into his older brother voice, “I don’t think any girl who’s too into scars is a girl you want interested in you.” Why would anyone be into scars? Physical proof a person you, in theory, cared about went through pain and trauma? No, if someone was attracted to scars it meant they didn’t care about the person themself. Or liked being the source of them, which was worse. F’drel didn’t really like the idea at all. Better to warn Quinvalis off that idea early.

“You’ll heal, Quin,” he said quietly, squeezing Quinvalis’ hand a little to emphasize the point. “It might suck on the way there, but you’ll get there. Miri and I will help, if you let us.”

Quinvalis pouted at all of the lecturing but he didn’t argue any of it. He knew it came from a good place and he appreciated how much F’drel cared—even if he was being a bit too over protective. He didn’t say he was going to visit Halomirth that day, or give a time at all; just promised he would. Of course he would wait until he could actually move without too much pain. As it was, just trying to return the hand squeeze both were giving him was a lot of effort so getting to the ledge was certainly out of the question.

“You can help, but only if you can manage to get my mom to go home and not worry.” He gave her a smile, knowing that he had to have worried her sick—again—with this Hatching. He also knew she wouldn’t leave if it were up to her, not until he was all patched up. A part of him worried she would demand he came home with her and leave the Weyr and dragons behind. Quinvalis wouldn’t blame her if she did and he’d go quietly as well so as not to continue being such a source of pain for her. But he didn’t want to be a burden either which was why he tried so hard to be useful at the Weyr and wanted a dragon.

“But for now, I promise not to make promises about visiting people and I promise to focus on healing. Which might mean going back to sleep.” He hurt and he was a bit groggy still as well and Quinvalis figured sleep was the best medicine for a lot of ailments so dragon mauling probably fell in there as well. Besides, he had asked if F’drel was sleeping with his mom so clearly he wasn’t in any state to stay awake much longer.

“Conveniently, the best way to help people who care about your wellbeing worry less is have others there to help make sure you’re getting better properly.” Like how Mylorah watching over Ferra on the Sands was quite possibly what kept F’drel from pulling her off the Sands himself. F’drel was really starting to hate Hatchings - and somehow he doubted Ferra would conveniently decide she was done with them altogether and he’d have to sit through many, many more. As if he wouldn’t have had to sit through them to support R’dal anyway, and as if Miri didn’t love attending. No, F’drel would be stuck attending Hatchings forever. He just hoped the people he liked could just Impress to good, metallic dragons or give up on Impressing permanently as soon as possible.

He would never get that lucky, F’drel just knew it.

“Sleep’s probably best right now,” he agreed, resisting the urge to gently ruffle Quinvalis’ hair like he did when Kitelan was sick. That was probably a little much, especially with Quinvalis’ mother there. “One or both of us will be here when you wake up,” F’drel added softly, not sure if the words were even heard because Quinvalis’ eyes were already closed.
