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!

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.

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....

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].

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!

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.

Madiquel had had an amazing day, spent shopping and laughing and eating with friends. She hadn’t realised how deeply she’d missed them all (and she hadn’t even seen everyone yet!) during her Weyrlinghood. She was glad that soon to would be over, and she’d be able to return to something more akin to the life she had led before Zezeth’s Hatching and Impression. She loved her dragon, but she missed her social life, her friends, and her education. Madiquel was looking forward to the return of all of them, and the freedom that would come with being bonded to a graduated dragon.

Now, though, as the sun was slowly setting, Madiquel was standing on the edge of the dancing floor, a small glass of watered wine in hand, watching the couples as they swirled around to the music. She was building herself up to finding D’hys and requesting a dance with the bluerider. She could imagine it all so clearly! The girl’s eyes went slightly glassy as she lost herself in the imagined scenario…

Madiquel was watching the dancers, when she spotted D’hys. He was leaning against a table, wine in hand, watching the dancers without a care in the world. Madiquel was instantly transfixed by the way the setting sun was lighting his hair up, and casting his face into mysterious shadows. She bit her bottom lip, watching him watch the crowd for several long moments before she found herself edging around the floor and making her way towards him. Her stomach was aflutter, and her heart was pounding, but her head felt calm and Madiquel walked with confidence as she slipped between other people.

She felt grown up and beautiful as she walked towards him, putting a little sway into her hips and a small smile on her lips. Her eyes lit up when she realised he was now looking at her,
actually looking at her, and a soft blush lit across her cheeks and she dropped her gaze for a moment, collecting herself. Lifting her chin, she met D’hys’ gorgeous blue eyes with a confident smile and dropped into a polite curtsy, wishing she had such confidence in her reality. “May I have this dance?” she asked…

Her fantasy paused for a moment as she ran through several scenarios of adding titles to the statement, a frown furrowing her eyebrows before smoothing out. She decided to leave it as that, and took a small sip of her drink before losing herself once more.

His hand was large, and warm, and his gentle touch filled her with tingling warmth as he lead her onto the dance floor; he hadn’t said anything, just took her hand, and Madiquel had followed him faithfully. She watched the way he moved in his gather finery, the way the sun, getting lower, was still glinting in his hair, and the way his eyes seemed to go from the pale icy shade to a deep blue depending on what angle the light was hitting them. She very nearly swooned as he stopped suddenly, pulling her to him and wrapping an arm around her waist in a smooth movement. She pressed her free hand gently to his chest, peering up at him with wide, enamoured eyes.

Then they were dancing, and Madiquel felt like one of the princesses in Rhaedalyn’s stories.
The goldrider had told her D’hys was a fine dancer, so Madiquel took that and ran with it. She made D’hys master of the dance floor, the figments of her imagination swirling her around the dancefloor with glorious abandon, no one else existed. She felt safe and secure and confident and beautiful. When the music in the real world came to a close, so did the dancing in her mind, and Madiquel took an absent sip of her wine, noticing the sun was very nearly out of sight now, the sky was ablaze with colours. She smiled softly to herself.

Madiquel felt like she was the only other person on all of Pern as she glanced up, the dancing stopped, the world slowing around them. She smiled softly, then blushed and looked away when D’hys continued to stare down at her. She felt her heart pounding in her throat and her ears when he used his finger to tilt her chin up, her eyes widening and then fluttering shut when he was so close she could taste his breath—

Madiquel gasped as someone bumped into her, effectively ruining her little fantasy and causing her to spill her wine – thankfully not onto her dress! – and drop the glass; it shattered at her feet and Madiquel’s bottom lip trembled as she stared down at the mess, unsure what to do. She didn’t want to pick up the pieces without gloves, knowing the likelihood of cutting herself was very high, but she couldn’t just leave the mess there. Sighing, and pouting sadly, Madiquel tried to catch the eye of a server.

D’hys’ day had been going fairly well until Zeianth got a message from Xyreith passing along an order from R’nya. Apparently little Madiquel was interested in dancing with him and it was in his best interest to agree. He wasn’t quite sure that it was. She was close to Rhaedalyn and R’nya and her father was Jajojin. Why would he want to fuck around with that kid on any level? Wasn’t she only like fourteen anyway? Maybe she was older, it was hard to tell with the way those three treated her—and how Madiquel herself seemed to view herself.

Then again, because of those three, it was in his best interest to be nice to Madiquel since it kept them all happy with him as well. A heartbroken teenager was a mess he had no interest in dealing with and he certainly didn’t want to deal with how her group of parents would react. So a dance. Fine, he could do that and maybe even give her a second one to show exactly how nice he was.

He had spotted her a few times throughout the day, spending time with one friend or another as D’hys made his way through his list of objectives for the Gather. By the time he spotted her with the same expression he’d seen on Rhaedalyn far too often, day-dreaming and lost in her own world, he was ready to get that task done with. As he approached, he saw the collision happen and Madiquel look around, worried and—was she close to crying? Fuck. With a sigh he hurried his way over to her.

When he was about ten feet away, D’hys realised that Madiquel was no longer fourteen as he took in her appearance. She was still a teen with a crush and he did his best to ignore those but this time he was purposely putting himself in the path and he sighed again as he grabbed a drudge that was darting around picking up discarded items. “Get that cleaned up. The lady was almost injured,” he ordered quietly before finally making his way to Madiquel.

“Careful, my lady,” D’hys started, pretending he didn’t recognize her as he took one of her hands in his while wrapping his free arm around her waist to guide her away from the glass. He purposely took a moment to look her over from toes to head as if looking for any cuts before feigning surprise at who she was. “Madiquel? You look stunning, like one of the princesses from Rhaedalyn’s stories.” He hated those stories and had suffered through many over the years. Now it felt like he was going to be living in one of them.

“Are you all right? I never understood why they used glass instead of wood or metal, especially when the light starts to fade.” He shook his head and glanced over to where the drudge was now hurriedly picking up the pieces before someone was hurt.

Madiquel didn’t want to cause a scene, but she was starting to get a bit irritated with the way none of the drudges or staff were answering her when she caught their gaze; they were obviously busy and she understood that, but the way they would immediately duck their head or turn away was more than a little irritating! Madiquel had pursed her lips, upset about her ruined daydream and now the being ignored and not wanting to cause a scene or leave the mess because she didn’t want anyone to get hurt.

Giving a puff of irritation that blew her hair out of her face, Madiquel was about to call out to a drudge that was mostly close enough that it wouldn’t cause too many to stare at her, when suddenly there were hands on her and she gave a squeak of surprise, head snapping in the direction of the voice that was speaking. Her mouth snapped shut and eyes widened dramatically as she stared up at D’hys in complete shock; then, she went crimson, it felt like her whole body was blushing as D’hys gazed at her, and then complimented her, and Madiquel wasn’t sure if she was going to pass out or not. She hoped not! That would be so, so so embarrassing!

Madiquel swayed slightly, unintentionally leaning into D’hys as she tried to find her voice. Did she fall asleep standing up? Was that possible? She would have been tempted to pinch herself to make sure, but she didn’t want to look a fool – whether she was awake or dreaming! – and instead felt Zezeth’s wordless reassurance that she was awake, and also that she was staring. Madiquel’s flush deepened, and she dropped her gaze as she took in a deep breath – oh Faranth, why hadn’t she realized she’d be able to smell him, and why did he smell good? – and stood up taller once more, sending a radiant smile at D’hys. She could do this!

While she didn’t move away from him, Madiquel also wasn’t swooning against him any longer, either. “Thank you,” she said with soft sincerity, glancing towards the drudge that was cleaning up; her lips pursed for a brief moment in irritation at that situation, but was quickly dismissed as D’hys asked after her wellbeing. Her brilliant smile was back as she returned her gaze to his face, shoving the urge to just gawk at him for the rest of the night deep, deep down so she could function – at least a little! “Wood is expensive,” she said in reply, tilting her head as she thought. Back in Katila, wood was their most available resource, but she had learned early in her Healing classes that wood wasn’t used much in the North, and when it was, it cost a lot. Silly, really. Though it did explain the cost of setting up her weyr!

“I’m okay,” she added, blushing again when she realized she hadn’t answered D’hys’ query. He must think her terribly rude, and no doubt more than a little daft! Madiquel’s nose scrunched up and she pouted at her thought, gaze shifting to where she had been standing. Imagining dancing with D’hys. Oh! Part of her insisted that it was the perfect time to make the request – but the louder part of her feared he’d much rather escape her and her silliness than be stuck dancing with her in that moment, so Madiquel didn’t fight to find the words, and instead looking up and gave a smaller smile. “Thank you again,” her blush was back, but at least now he could excuse himself and she could go back to her fantasy world, where she had so much more confidence and was much more articulate than the real her.

He wondered if R'nya would owe him for this or if this was part of what he owed the Weyrleader for getting Aederyn out of the Healer Hall arrangement. He had a swooning teenager in his arms that thankfully hadn't fainted yet, though it had been close. Even with the setting sun casting warmer hues on everyone and thing, D'hys could see the blush and how embarrassed Madiquel was--either over the entire situation or her awkward way with words. He knew the girl could be far more articulate than this and decided too much conversation would be troublesome.

"I'm glad, but if you want to feign a hurt foot, I wouldn't mind scooping you up and whisking you away from this dreary location," he chuckled and smiled at Madiquel, trying to play the part of what he thought an innocent teen girl would find attractive. He didn't want to push it too far as it would come off insincere and contrast with his everyday personality and behaviour that she had surely seen in the past. But they had never had much in the way of true interactions, definitely not one on one like this so showing a softer and sweeter side would lead her to believe it was only for her and maybe a select few.

"If not that, may I escort you to the dance square and ask you for a dance, Princess? I've been here all day and I haven't had the chance or found the right partner and you seem like someone that knows her way around the dance floor." He didn't think it mattered in the end who did the asking, only that they danced together so D'hys didn't think he could be faulted for steering them in the direction of the goal before eventually being able to extract himself with Madiquel's heart still intact and maybe with a few new fantasies to keep her panties wet.

Madiquel took in a quick, sharp breath at the prospect of being – quite literally – whisked away by D’hys and then flushed crimson. Her pounding heart, and her inability to breathe, was telling her quite firmly that if she – they – went that route, she would definitely be dead before he’d finished scooping her. She was saved from stammering out why that wasn’t needed, by his offer for dancing instead. Her eyes grew wide as she stared up at D’hys in wonder, absolutely enchanted. And he’d called her Princess! Her expression exploded into radiant joy, but her voice was low, afraid to shatter the strange dream she’d found herself in – because she was definitely dreaming! “I would like that,” she murmured.

For all her daydreams, Madiquel had never expected the reality to be so amazing. She was a popular girl, and had plenty of friends but she’d never been interested in any of them, so she’d never realized what it was like to be interested in someone. Like how she could smell him (and it was amazing) and feel the warmth of him where they were close, even if he wasn’t touching her; and she swore he was the most beautiful person she’d ever seen, especially with the way the twilight was attaching itself to him, in a mingling display of light and shadow that made him look very mysterious!

The most important thing, though, was that he’d seen her, and he thought her stunning – he’d said so! – and he had asked her to dance, and that was so much, much, much better than her asking him, because surely if he asked than that meant he wanted to. He. Wanted. To. Dance. With. Her! Madiquel was in a trance when he led her onto the dancefloor, blindly and faithfully following him, floating along on cloud nine.

What was he getting himself into? This was likely going to end in a disaster, especially if he took a misstep anywhere along the way but as long as Madiquel was happy than her parent figures should stay happy as well. with their arms linked, D'hys decided to just let his ego currently lead them to the dance floor, flattered that he was still attractive to all age groups. Truthfully, the task ranked on the easier side of things he had been asked to do over the years so he didn't have much room to complain, but he also knew he could have been doing so much more with his time.

He wasn't even a huge fan of dancing. He was decent at it but he typically didn't seek out the chance to let loose just because there was a harper band performing. Perhaps he was odd for thinking that after living in isolation for so long. He should have jumped at the chance to dance with music that wasn't from the handful of dragonrider and Stolen Harpers they had in Katila but he never felt the need. He could sit back and nurse a drink while listening and still find it enjoyable.

But there he was, on the square and mimicking the bow that the holders around him were doing to their partners as they took their ladies' hand. He knew enough moves to help make the moment special for Madiquel as he twirled her or picked her up at the waist to spin them halfway around and set her on her dainty feet again--though that move reminded him of that Candidate that liked to lift things up and put them down.

At the end of the song, he purposely spun her in tight so she would end up bumping her back into his chest and wrapped his arms around her shoulders to join in the applauding of the harpers. It seemed that was the man's last song for a bit and he had been enjoyable. As the next man came up on the stage and started talking with the others about what he wanted to sing, D'hys leaned down to whisper against Madiquel's ear. "I feel it would be rude if we left before hearing a bit from the new Harper. Would you join me for a couple more songs?"

He had only been told to dance with Madiquel, not told how many songs that entailed. But D'hys assumed one song would be a bit rude to cut and run after and his ego was still driving and insisted a little more interaction would leave the girl wanting more and definitely create more fantasies for her.

Madiquel couldn’t remember being happier on a dancefloor; she wasn’t going to say it was her happiest moment ever because she was genuinely happy girl, and ranking all her happy moments would have ruined the current one. Because she was swept up in the fairy tale that she was sure Rhaedalyn had written just for her, about her, this moment. Everything! She was a glorious princess being swept around the dancing floor by a wanderlust rogue whom her Papa would not approve of! Madiquel giggled softly as she was swept into D’hys’ chest, joining him in applauding the Harper and trying not to feel too guilty about how grey the scene would make her poor Papa’s hair.

Goosebumps erupted across Madiquel’s skin from the point where D’hys’ warm breath brushed against her ear, and tingled down her spine. The butterflies in her belly got swept up in an apparent cyclone, and a blush flared into life across her nose and down the back of her neck. Nonetheless, Madiquel tilted her head slightly and turned a little, so she could flash a smile at D’hys – both relieved and disappointed his face was no longer right there – and gave a small nod of accent. “Yes,” she said, somewhat breathless, but that could easily be blamed on all the dancing they’d done, even if Madiquel knew otherwise. She was surprised she could remember how to breathe with D’hys so close. Which, of course, made her intimately aware of her breathing, and the way she could feel D’hys breathing against her back, since they hadn’t yet moved apart.

Madiquel’s blush deepened before she twirled about, spinning away just a little and dropping into a neat curtsy, her skirts flaring around her. Rising, she brushed her flyaway strands of hair off her face, and let D’hys take her hand once more, biting her lip for a moment before looking back at D’hys, having glanced towards the stage, and admitting on a cheerful breath that she had first heard the song during a weekend that Harpers had visited the Healer Hall. While she didn’t say anything further, it was clear that she couldn’t wait to go back to learning about Healing!

D’hys smiled at the girl’s delight at getting a chance to stay in his presence a while longer. Some people were far too easy to manipulate. Madiquel was a fairly open book and it didn’t take much to find out what would make her happy, something he was grateful for since keeping her happy kept the leadership happy. “I’m not too familiar with this song so I hope you forgive me for any stumbles during it,” he confessed as they fell back into a dance. It was a simple enough song with a steady beat so D’hys didn’t think they’d be thrown for any loops and step on toes.

They did make it through that song and as the Harpers went right into another song with barely a pause, D’hys kept Madiquel on the floor. It was a song he knew well and was able to add flourishing moves and spins to ensure the girl’s night ended on a high note. No doubt she would think back on it with fondness and perhaps lust but that wasn’t his problem. He was being an absolute gentleman with the way he spoke and held her so it wasn’t his fault if her thoughts delved into less than pure places.

As the song concluded and the singer paused for a quick drink, D’hys applauded and decided an encore to the show was in order. “May I buy you a drink and escort you back to Zezeth? The weyrling curfew must be approaching and I wouldn’t mind seeing her. Perhaps you can fill me in on how you’re both doing with your lessons as we walk?”

You really can’t help yourself, can you?

What can I say? I adore being adored. He also was curious about the frail green dragon and there had been genuine interest in his words to Madiquel.
