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.

Just because you only came to drop someone off doesn't mean you can't stay to enjoy yourself. Perhaps you can talk to some lovely ladies who catch your eye. K'dar sighed as his dragon's gruff voice reverberated softly in his head. He ran his hands through his wind swept hair for a moment before he cracked the knuckle of his left index finger. As lovely as the ladies may be, it seems silly for that to be the only reason to stay for a Gather. I can't even think of any shopping I want to do. I'm sure there are lovely men around too if that's what you're in the mood for. K'dar muffled a frustrated groan in his hands as he covered his face. At least the motion also hid the fact that he was blushing slightly. What? You can't leave your romantic life entirely up to me trying to win flights. If you really want an excuse to stay, explore, and enjoy yourself then get a new jacket. That one is beginning to get ratty about the elbows. And get a gift for your sister.

K'dar turned to try to get a better look at the worn elbows of his jacket and frowned. He supposed it was something he could either get patched or replaced. Possibly both. And getting his sister a gift was probably a good idea. He hadn't seen as much of her as he could have liked since impressing, and he hoped she hadn't gotten into too much trouble without him. Fine, fine. I'll go shopping just so you can explore a bit. There was only smug silence from the dragon as the bronze began to wander about to see what he could see, careful to be mindful of his bulk as he explored the edges of the Gather.

With a goal in mind, at least now K'dar had someplace to start as he wandered the stalls trying to find a nice jacket or perhaps a trinket for Mylorah. Hopefully he'd find something suitable soon and Tiber would be satisfied so that they could go back home and he could curl up with that new book he'd gotten. That was another thing he could get, he realized; more books for his still tiny collection. With a bit more enthusiasm he started whistling to himself as he began browsing the stalls. If he was lucky and found a good book he could just find a nice quiet spot to curl up and read until Tiber was ready to go home.

"Korlin!" Katiryn called out when she spotted a familiar face across the crowd. She hadn't been at the Gather long, having caught a ride with someone and then dashed off with a promise to return at an agreed upon time if she wanted a ride home. She had thought to grab something to eat and then browse the stalls but hadn't made it that far when she saw yet another friend that had Impressed to a shiny dragon.

She threw herself at the bronzerider for a hug and stepped back smiling. "I guess I should really get used to calling you K'dar but it's still so odd, two years later." Even his own sister had always only called him Korlin and Katiryn wondered if the man was the only person alive that had remembered his full name before Tiberuth changed that.

"How have you been? Telgar still treating you well?" The last time they had really spoken was the night before the Hatching he ended up Impressing at where several of them hung out for a while. They crossed paths briefly here and there since but she never liked to interrupt when he was spending time with his sister.

K'dar looked up at the sound of his old name and smiled when he saw Katiryn rushing over for the hug. He quickly returned it. "It's fine, you can keep calling m Korlin for a bit longer. I'm sure Tiber will understand." K'dar is a fine name and it suits you better, but if Korlin will get you to socialize I suppose it's fine. He ignored his dragon's commentary. "I've been fine, Telgar treats me well enough. Tiberuth keeps me busier than anyone else there."

He gently took her arm and led her off to the side so they could chat without being in the way. "But how have you been, Kat? Staying out of trouble?" As much as K'dar hadn't planned on seeking out any people to socialize with during this trip (much to his dragon's disappointment), he was glad that Katiryn had bumped into him. "It's good to see you. I was just going to look around, maybe do some shopping-"

Ask her if she wants to eat. Ladies love when you bring them food. K'dar resisted the urge to sigh and snark back, after all he was feeling a bit peckish as well since he only tended to have klah for breakfast. "Would you like to grab something to eat with me so we can catch up a bit? Maybe we can look around the Gather together afterwards."

"Please give Tiberuth my apologies," she didn't want to upset the dragon. Some were okay with their riders still using nicknames but she was also aware that it was a bit disrespectful to the dragon for not using the honorific they gave their rider. "It might sink in quicker if I saw you more often," Katiryn pouted, missing the man. They really didn't have much in common when she thought about it but he was a part of their Katila pack and it always felt odd when she realised how they were slowly scattering across the Weyrs and forming new lives.

"And never," Katiryn replied with a playful grin. Trouble was too much fun! Which was probably one of those things they didn't have in common. Korlin--K'dar!-- never came across as the sort to sneak around for any reason. At the offer to join him for a bite to eat Katiryn lit up and easily accepted and fell in step with him as he led them to find lunch.

"I've actually been debating a transfer to Telgar or Benden," she confessed as they walked. As a Candidate she could still travel to any Weyr for their Hatchings but Katiryn wasn't sure where she wanted to set up a base of her own. Not that it would matter if she Impressed elsewhere. "I love Ista and Casa being Weyrwoman is pretty amazing but..." she lowered her voice so she didn't scandalize any holders, "my dad is still one of Casa's playmates and it's just getting weird, you know?"

K'dar snorted. "Tiberuth doesn't deserve your apologies. But I'll pass them on anyway." Tiberuth didn't acknowledge either the sentiment or the sentence but there was a general feeling of almost smug satisfaction from the bronze. "And I suppose I could stop by and visit Ista a bit more. The weather is much nicer there in general. I could say hi to more of the old group, prove that I'm still alive and not just a figment of Mylorah's imagination." You know I would gladly carry you to see friends. You should get out a bit more. I get out plenty. This time K'dar could feel Tiber rolling his eyes.

He was tempted to roll his own eyes at Katiryn's response to trouble but instead just laughed. "Sounds about right. At least you're old enough to handle your own trouble." Or was she? He frowned a little, brow furrowing as he added, "Though let me know if I need to get into a fight with anyone for you. I'm still good for that if someone makes you cry."

As they wandered looking for any particularly enticing food stalls, K'dar considered the debate on transferring. "I've thought about going back to Ista, I just have been too lazy to think about it I suppose. Never thought about moving, but I don't know that I have a compelling reason to stay in Telgar either. It's just where we've been since Tiber hatched. Though if you came to Telgar you would get more opportunity to practice not calling me Korlin." He grinned. "Not sure if that's really a compelling reason to go though. And... ah... yeah that is rough with your dad and Casa. Just sounds awkward. Would you really want to go that far away from your dad though? Or are you not as close anymore?" He was pretty sure he remembered that Kat was close to her father, but he'd been away for long enough that things certainly could have changed. He found what seemed to be a good enough stall and stopped, gesturing towards their menu. "What would you like? On me."

This was why K'dar was the sweetest. Not many would offer to beat someone up for her if she got into too much trouble. Hopefully she never would and if it did happen, he wouldn't be too far away. Maybe that was another reason to move to Telgar. "Practicing your name is a compelling reason to go to Telgar. I hear that Weyr is full of sexy bronzeriders," she teased but it was a pretty accurate statement. K'dar was there, T'ryn had recently transferred, and of course N'vian was there as well. Those were some pretty amazing reasons to move to a colder Weyr. Oh! Snuggling. Even better!

"Oh, daddy and I are still close and I think it would break both of our hearts a bit if I moved but..." it wasn't just that K'tir was a fuck buddy of Casa that was a problem. She sometimes fooled around with Casa as well and her dad still thought her to be a perfect darling and she feared him finding out that wasn't entirely true. There was some fun in sneaking around to meet up with someone but it was also tiring and Katiryn worried that her dad would one day find out and freak out on her poor lover and blame them for corrupting her. "I feel like it might be safer for anyone I'm interested in to have a bit more space between us." Not that it mattered when a trip between was as quick as a walk down a hall.

Her thoughts trailed off to focus on the food and decided to pick something light but sweet since she wanted to dance later. When the sticky bun was passed to her, Katiryn beamed at the vendor and then at K'dar. "Thank you! I know it's not exactly healthy or really counts as lunch but it smelled too good to pass up." And it did! She gave it another sniff and smiled blissfully. Cinnamon was possibly the best food item ever.

She pointed out a small tree that didn't have anyone around it as a good place to sit and eat. It wasn't entirely lady-like to sit on the grass but Katiryn arranged her dress in such a way to keep her modesty amongst the holders. "What are your plans for the day? You're not going to try to dash off as soon as I look away, are you?"

It wasn't surprising at all to hear her teasing about the Weyr being full of sexy bronzeriders, though it took K'dar a moment to remember that he was potentially on that list. It was flattering, but he coudn't help but doubt himself just enough that he tried to brush it off with a chuckle. "I'm sure there are Weyrs with sexier bronzeriders." And really there were probably better reasons to move to a Weyr but he wasn't about to say that aloud.

It was a shame that she wanted to get away from her dad so much, but it did make sense. He was a very protective man, and K'dar was sure that Kat was not going to become less flirtatious with age. "Well, if you do end up in Telgar, Tiberuth and I can take you for visits back to Ista to visit him until you impress." There was no way of knowing of course, if or when Katiryn would impress, but he was optimistic about it.

With the food paid for and his own sticky bun in hand, K'dar followed along, taking a few small nibbles of his lunch, which was also his breakfast if he was being honest. "I think it counts enough to be lunch. These are quite good though, you chose wisely." He plopped down onto the grass next to his friend and took a bigger bite out of the pastry while he considered his plans. He really hadn't wanted to stay, but it seemed like everyone was conspiring to keep him there for longer. "I was just planning on doing some quick shopping, but I know Tiberuth wants to stay longer... I suppose I could indulge him. Did you have any plans?"

"Whether I move there or not, I'm going to Telgar in a couple of days for Bedith's latest clutch so I figure I should find a warmer dress or maybe a coat." It was already a cool day in Fort so she knew Telgar had to be even cooler based on memories of her time living there when they all moved North again. It wasn't that she was lacking in warmer clothes but she'd use anything as an excuse to shop and Katiryn loved seeing what the current styles were for holders.

"So if you'd like some company for a little bit longer, I wouldn't mind exploring the stalls with you. A second opinion is always welcome as well," sometimes she had a terrible time choosing when too many options were presented so K'dar could save her a lot of time by picking--even if he just randomly selected it and didn't have a true opinion.

"Maybe I could even get you to dance with me after. I promise I won't take up your entire day if you have plans with someone else you aren't telling me." She doubted he would hide such information but it had to be said anyway to be polite But Katiryn also wasn't going to waste an opportunity to spend time with the dashing bronzerider and get him to take her for a spin or two around the dance square.

"Finding something warm is a good idea. I've been needing to get a new jacket too, so we can shop together. I'll help make sure you pick something that looks warm enough, and you can help me make sure I don't pick something that looks horrible." K'dar wasn't much for clothes shopping, focusing mostly on comfort and getting what he thought he needed rather quickly so he could move on. Hopefully having a friend around with some fashion sense would ensure he looked good enough to not embarrass himself. "Oh, maybe I can get a new sweater too while I'm here. You could get one too, they're very comfortable."

The question about dancing, however, had him pause. He wasn't sure if he wanted to stay that long, and while he was sure he could dance, it had been a while and he wasn't sure he'd be able to properly keep up. "I'm not sure if Tiberuth wants to stay that long," Go dance. "But I'm sure it'll be fine. I guess he's enjoying himself. So if you still want to dance by the time we're done shopping then I will have to see if I still remember how for you." K'dar smiled and finished eating his sticky bun before standing up and stretching. "Let's go find some clothes, and if you happen to see any interesting book stalls while we're out shopping let me know."

It was hard but Katiryn managed not to roll her eyes or make a face at K’dar asking for books. Of course he would want to still hunt one down but it was a fair trade for getting him to agree to dancing. “Please pass along my gratitude to Tiberuth,” she stood, briefly brushed off her backside and looped their arms to begin the hunt for warmer clothes.

In the end she found a dress that was cute and functional and even let K’dar talk her into a sweater since it was so soft and would look amazing with the one pair of pants she had for the times when a dress just wasn’t practical. She even managed to find a coat that suited K’dar perfectly and made his eyes even more attention-grabbing. “You better not put that on again until after we’re done with our dances. Otherwise I’m going to spend the entire time beating back the ladies.” She could and had shared in the past but this bronzerider was all hers for a bit longer.

As they started the trek toward the dance square, Katiryn spotted the vendor she dreaded and briefly wondered if they could sneak by without K’dar noticing but that would be mean. She instead tapped his arm and quietly pointed out the small collection of books. “If you promise not to drool, I won’t mind you taking as long as you like browsing.” She hated reading when they were younger and some of her friends said that may have been due to the lack of variety they had in Katila but Katiryn had yet to find anything that could capture her attention since they came North so she decided it just wasn’t for her. Although maybe if a bronzerider with a sexy voice read the stories to her…

Tiberuth did not require Katiryn's gratitude because he was secretly quite pleased with the bit of socialization his rider was getting. If his rider had a bit more confidence then he wouldn't be so stressed every time Tiberuth chased after one of the lovely ladies he longed for, and if he wasn't so stressed then it would be much easier for him to win. At least that was one of the dragon's justifications for encouraging K'dar to get out more. Not that his rider appreciated it as much as he should have.

K'dar was too busy ignoring his dragon and being absolutely pleased that he was able to pick something out that Kat liked enough to get. "I'm glad you liked the sweater, it looks really good, and it feels very soft. They're really comfortable. I even got one in in a similar color for myself while you were looking at some other things."

He wasn't sure which new garment he was more excited about, a new coat that actually looked quite fetching on him, or another nice comfortable sweater to wrap himself up in with a good book by the fire. He gave Katiryn a quick smile. "I'll keep my old jacket on while we dance if you're sure it's not ratty enough to embarrass you." He didn't think it was, but just in case he added in an offer, "I can take it off too, I'm sure the dancing will keep me warm enough."

He pulled Katiryn into a happy hug once she pointed out the collection of books. "I won't drool. They're only books." Unless he happened to find one of the steamier books he secretly enjoyed, but even then he didn't drool. K'dar eagerly went to sort through the books, doing his best to get sucked in as he skimmed through opening paragraphs and took a peek at random scenes. He found one romantic book with some racy scenes in it, and another that was about a sailor discovering a mysterious island. After a quick check to see if Katiryn was paying attention he made his purchase and quickly stuffed the books into his bag.

With a quick offer of his arm again, K'dar smiled. "Found a book about a sailing adventure, should be fun. Did you want to go dance now or see a few more stalls?"

Katiryn poked at one book before losing interest entirely. They simply didn’t capture her attention and shouldn’t fake it. So while K’dar browsed, she wandered over to the next stall and poked around at their goods. Nothing too exciting there either but still something to do while keeping herself distracted from pulling her friend away from something he clearly loved. But once she heard him speaking with the vendor to pay, she wandered back over and smiled at him finding two books.

“If it gets you to visit me, I expect you to tell me all about what is sure to be an exciting sailing adventure,” it seemed like a good compromise. Someone else could do the boring reading part and then tell her about the fun story hidden within all the words.

“Oh, dancing of course! With as little layers as possible also sounds wonderful,” she laughed as she took his arm, “you’re the one who planted that idea, Kor-K’dar. You may have only suggested removing your jacket but that’s always the first step in more clothing following.” It was nice being outside of the Weyr, on the arm of a handsome man, and flirting freely. She honestly didn’t expect anything to come from it, not with K’dar who was dependable but also too much of a gentleman. Maybe that was a bronzerider trait given T’ryn was also the same way.

She debated putting her bag down when they reached the designated area but she had packed the new clothes into her satchel rather well and just repositioned it to make sure it wouldn’t be in the way. No way was she risking someone swipe her cute dress and apparently a K’dar-matching sweater! “All right, bronzerider. Time for you to refresh my memory on how well you move.”

"If you're sure you don't want to read it on your own, I suppose I could tell you about it. It's not the same as getting into the story yourself though. Maybe you just haven't found the right sort of book? Either way," K'dar shrugged as he realized it didn't really matter since she wanted him to tell her about the story, "When I'm finished I'll tell you all about it, and maybe you'll think it sounds fun enough that you'll want to read it on your own." At least he hoped she would. Maybe if he made his version sound exciting when he retold it that would help.

K'dar grinned as he was pulled along to the dance area, pausing only to pull off his jacket, turning only a slight bit red when she mentioned he could take more off. "Just the jacket for now, it's still a bit cool out. and let's see, how much I remember."

He didn't want to take the time to try to stuff his jacket away, so he set it off to the side. With his own bag adjusted and out of the way he waited for an uptick in the music again to step into the dance. He made a few false steps as he tried to keep up, but K'dar was more pleased that so far he hadn't done anything too egregious. He was keeping mostly in time with the music, he hadn't stepped on Katiryn's feet, and as he refound his neglected and all but forgotten sense of rhythm he actually was able to even lead.

Feeling a bit daring, he decided to try something he'd read about in one of his stories about a Lordling who was seduced by a maid. Hoping to emulate the dashing Lord, he took Katiryn's hand, and tried to spin her.

Katiryn was impressed. K'dar was doing rather well and her toes had yet to be stepped on which was one of her top requirements to qualify as a good dancer in her eyes. Fun and no injuries counted as a win in her mind. She had picked up some of the moves since attending Gathers and watching the holders dance but she didn't expect it of her fellow brats. So when K'dar went to spin her, she laughed from being startled by the suave move and stumbled a bit but stayed on her feet.

"My fault," she quickly explained as she flung her arms around his neck to hold tight to him. "I wasn't expecting you to know such moves. You are leaving me pleasantly surprised and intrigued to know more of the moves you're hiding." She was a shameless flirt but where was the harm in that? If nothing else, it let the person know someone was attracted to them and everyone needed that boost from time to time.

"Shall we try that again?" Katiryn stepped back and held out her hand for K'dar to take it and spin her once more.

"Ah, I don't know that many more," K'dar confessed, a little embarrassed about the source of his knowledge. He cleared his throat as the embarrassment compounded with a general nervousness from how close she was. "I've just done some people watching and got lucky with who I happened to see dancing one day. I thought it looked like an interesting move, I've never tried it myself until now though."

K'dar could feel Tiberuth's disappointment at his answer. You don't have to lie. It doesn't matter that you read it in one of your silly books. If they keep embarrassing you, perhaps you should stop reading them. Just leave it alone for now, please? Tiber gave a small huff but dropped it. It was not the first time he had sassed his rider for that silly bit of insecurity, and he was sure it wouldn't be the last.

In the meantime K'dar gave Katiryn another nervous smile and nodded, taking her hand to spin her once more. This time they were able to pull the maneuver off flawlessly and he couldn't help but feel incredibly proud of the accomplishment. "I think maybe you are making me seem much more impressive than I really am with your own skill. You must be a popular dance partner at all of the parties."

Katiryn blushed under the compliment and shook her head to politely deny the claim. "No more than anyone else, except maybe your sister. She's fearless with dancing and approaches anyone and does whatever she wants." She was a bit envious of the way Mylorah could do that, though she managed it on a smaller scale, usually with people she already knew. Mylorah just let the music move her and let anyone along for the ride without a worry of what anyone thought.

"I must confess to learning a lot of the steps from watching others as well. The first few Gathers we were allowed to go to, I spent a lot of time sitting on the edge and watching. I didn't want to embarrass myself." The last part was confessed with another blush as she felt silly for admitting to it. But it was K'dar and he wouldn't hold it against her.

"I've since learned dancing is more about having fun than doing anything right, though some of those moves are fun!" She had him spin her again, twice around she went, and came to a halt giggling. "How about a couple more songs and then I'll set you free. But only after you promise to visit more, no matter which Weyr I decide to live in."

"Ah, my sister is in a class of her own though, it's hard to compare anyone to her. She always worries me that she's going to get into something over her head." To K'dar's mind, Mylorah might as well have been unstoppable. He knew he couldn't do anything to reign her in, at best he could just shake his head disapprovingly, and those had stopped being effective a long time ago. Still, he knew if she did get into any sort of trouble he'd be there to help, and if needed pick a fight.

K'dar's first response to Katiryn's embarrassment was to give her a small comforting squeeze. "Well, I find your dancing certainly very impressive, and I'm sure if you look around you'll find other people who agree with me. Certainly nothing to be embarrassed about."

He grinned as he spun her about again, still so very pleased he'd managed to get it right. Maybe he would tell her later that he'd learned about it in a book, and maybe that would finally tempt her. But as much as he'd tried to be reassuring about her own embarrassment he decided he'd wait to reveal that secret later on, if ever. "I can do a couple more songs for you, and I will do my best to visit more. Now, maybe you can teach me a new move before we finish."

Katiryn took the next song to think about a move she knew that she could teach K'dar. They already had the spin down and that was probably her favourite and the most fun. There were some lifts that always looked fun but she'd never tried them since she often danced with her friends and they didn't really know much more than her either. Most of the time they were happy to just bounce around to the beat and sing-yell the lyrics to the songs they knew and there wasn't much finesse to anything else.

She did get him to do another type of twirl which had her laughing and quite possibly leaving her dizzy by the end of their time together if they kept playing around with those two moves. But it was fun and Katiryn was sticking to that being the most important part. There was one more move that kept coming to mind and she bit her lower lip as she finally guided K'dar's arm to what seemed like the right part of her back and explained the general idea. "So you just need to support me as I lean back. And try not to drop me but I'll only make you my slave for a handful of years if it happens." She smiled and tried to make light of it, just in case it happened so K'dar wouldn't feel guilty and live with it for the rest of life.

Feeling confident that they could do this as well, Katiryn clung onto K'dar tightly and leaned back and squealed in delight as one foot came off the ground and he held her in place. When she was brought back up, Katiryn couldn't help but give the bronzerider a quick kiss to the mouth. "That was perfect!"

K'dar had to admit that he was having quite a lot of fun dancing with Katiryn. His earlier nerves seemed almost silly, she was an old friend after all. What was there to be afraid of? Dropping her apparently, he realized as she explained a new dance move to him. The twirls had been easy enough, and this seemed to require that he do even less. Just... don't drop her. With his luck, this would be where something went wrong, his hand would get sweaty and slip, another pair of dancers would careen into them and ruin everything, an earthquake... He let out a soft laugh as he realized he had gone from nervous overthinking into the absurd. "I won't drop you. Promise. No need to enslave me today."

He realized as they performed the move, that it looked far more impressive than he thought it would, and that it was another he'd read about in one of his books. He blinked in surprise at the quick kiss, completely unprepared for it. He blushed a little, grinning. "Well I'm glad it worked, and more that I didn't drop you. I think I maybe next time I might even be able to combine those moves, spin you about and then dip you down. That might be too fancy though.. and I definitely wouldn't promise to not drop you. If you get dizzy and fall out of my arms that might be your fault," he teased before pulling her into a tight hug. "It was great running into you, Kat. I'll try to pay you a visit soon, maybe after the hatching."

"I look forward to our next dance," K'dar had turned out to be an amazing partner and the blush from her quick kiss was too adorable not to tempt her to do it again next time as well. The idea of putting their fancy moves together sounded fun and she bet they would feel more like the lords and ladies that always seemed to know what they were doing instead of just fumbling through the steps they knew and pausing to test out something new. It was a lot to look forward to and maybe she could get a dance in as soon as Telgar's Hatching celebrations. She hoped she would have her own dragon at the time but even if she didn't, K'dar could probably make her feel better.

She threw herself into the hug he gave her, full of warmth and fuzzies. Katiryn missed a lot of their friends that went to other Weyrs and the hug just reminded her how much. She really did need to try visiting others more herself or get a dragon of her own to make that traveling a lot easier. Goals upon goals. One day they would all be met.

"Enjoy the rest of your time, K'dar! Don't buy too many more books!" She laughed and waved as she skipped away. K'dar had been too quick in his search earlier and she would wager her fanciest dress that he went back to browse some more. Good luck to Tiberuth having to carry them all back!
