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.

After all, it's been so long, surely it is no longer a threat! Weyrleaders are, regardless, beginning to put together wings in their Weyrs, if only to keep troublesome and bored riders busy.

Month 12, 739 AL
North: Early Winter| South: Early Summer
-3.1 to 2.1 C | 20.4 C to 29.4 C


Winter has come slowly to the Northern lands of Pern, with more rain and cold winds than snow. As the month progresses, more and more snow will fall, with frequent blizzard-like storms towards the very end of the month. Telgar and Fort will in particular become burried under mountains of snow, while Ista is sunjected to frequent icy rainstorms, and heavy winds coming in from across the ocean.

13.4 to 21.0 C | 13.8 C to 25.6 C


Following the disastrous fires (sometime in around the 28th of Month 08), Ista Isle has found itself suddenly in the midst of constant rain; not enough to flood, but a steady, dreary downfall that seems to only take a time out for a couple of hours here and there, before coming back again. Its cast the entire sooty Isle into a sombre and depressed mood. Alongside the rain, the weather is muggy and while not hot, is not particularly cool, either.

The rest of Northern Pern is getting their usual weather, though they, too, have been called to action following the wildfires that savaged Ista. Many individuals who called Ista Island home have been relocated not just to Ista Weyr, Ista Hold or Sea Cliff Hold, but also to other areas of Pern, whether with family or friends.

Month 08, 739 AL
North: Late Summer | South: Late Winter
17.4 to 25.5 C | 10.8 C to 23.2 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm - 37 to 45 C - has resulted in an incredibly dry summer, with little to no rain. This was climaxed by a dry thunderstorm, the results of which caused three fires to start across the Island on the 24.07.739 in the early morning hours. While the results of this are yet to be played out, the events will no doubt leave more than just the scarring of the land.

Month 07, 739 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter
18.0 to 26.6 C | 10.2 C to 21.9 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 37 to 45 C range, making it now a more than slightly undesirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the more enjoyable early summer weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind. Ista's limited farmlands and fields are dry and dusty, with golden straw instead of grass where there is any growth at all.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are still getting a lot of evening rain and the occasional thunderstorms, which cools down the populus and allows them to sleep easily without sweating their brains out like the Istans.

North: Late Spring | South: Late Autumn
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.

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].

June 2018

Welcome to the new month! Like always, I'm slack in getting the update up and running, but here it is! This month we have the event 'Summer Fling' - [Link] - which is turning out to be all kinds of entertaining already! Remember, it doesn't have to include smut! It could be an innocent date with some - *gasp* - hand holding!

This month also saw Gold Bedith of Mulrissa take to the skies! She was won by young Syrendryth of T'ryn! Congrats, and may your Hatching be less dramatic than the last one! The Hatching will take place in October so you have a lot of time to get Candidates created, approved, and posting up a storm!

In the meantime, gold Okalinath of Kahleena has taken to the skies! You can find her Flight thread taking place on the 4th, here Currently, there is no planned winner, so be sure to throw your bronzes and browns her way! They do not need to be natives to Telgar Weyr to participate!

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.

Another snowball caught Zelana in the face, stinging her already bright red and cold sore cheeks for a brief moment as she squealed and tried to duck back down into her little snow fort before another snowball from a different angle caught her in the hat, nearly knocking it off. This was of course, all her own fault. She'd tried to pick sides in the snow battle at first, tried to use her charms to get first A'tay and then Lazerat to help her as she very poorly threw snow at the other. Her poor aim meant that it was much easier to get the drop and actually hit someone when they were close by... and that meant a lot of treachery on her part.

So of course both boys had eventually turned on her and turned the battle into a lawless free for all. Zelly collapsed, laughing as she heard the crunch of snow as one or both of them approached her little fort. She threw up a hand and frantically started waving it. "I give! I give!"

She giggled as she was lifted back up to her feet. "Well, I guess we learned that Laz is a much better snow fighter than I am. And that I am definitely not good enough to be able to go rogue. Hot cocoa? I need something warm after all of that." It took a bit of effort to not suggest a different activity to warm up, but with her brother and her boyfriend there, it was better to play it safe for now.

Lazerat had been having a blast. Even with everything he had heard, he wasn’t prepared to finally see snow for himself. It was damned cold, though! That was something he wasn’t too fond of but A’tay had been right—once they started moving around, they would warm up. But they had also been playing too long or perhaps too hard with how snow was getting in everywhere and he was starting to feel the chill. So it was with great relief when Zelly gave up as he tried to sneak up on her—as much as one could sneak with how noisy snow could be.

He dropped the snowball instead of still smashing it on her head like he intended and scooped her up under the arms to bring her back to her feet. A’tay was only just emerging from behind his wall so Lazerat took the chance to tease his sister as he whispered, “a sailor told me that sleeping naked together shares body heat and is quite effective.”

When A’tay was close enough, he shot the bronzerider a grin and playfully pinned Zelana’s arms to her side. “Now’s your chance if you want to give her the killing blow!” Lazerat laughed and let go when A’tay laughed and shook his head. “Looks like you live to fight another day, Zelly Bean. But what’s this about hot chocolate? I’ll take anything hot right now. I’m starting to forget what warmth feels like.”

A’tay laughed and reached out to brush some snow from Zelly’s coat and offered his arm for her to take. Memories of their first trip came back to him and their walk to the house. That had been a fun day and he was glad Zelly still seemed to enjoy it and that her brother had as well. It would have been horrible if Lazerat hated it and complained the whole time or had to hide somewhere warm while they tried to have fun without him.

Not wanting to impose directly on his family, A’tay figured the little warming area his aunt and uncle kept maintained in a barn would do for them and mentioned that idea. “That barn over there has a couple of fires going and some hot drinks that we can help ourselves to, especially if you want to head back out for some more after. Or, I suppose we could go to the tavern for a bit.” He was fine with either option and left it up to the siblings to decide since this was all so new to them and A’tay was just delighted to be able to give them a chance to enjoy it.

Spending time with sailors eh? Zelly resisted the urge to comment on that aloud as A'tay walked over. At least the cold was doing a good job of disguising her blush as she thought about the teasing. She laughed as she was freed. "Oh good, I do like living. Though I still need to practice that fighting part."

"Hot chocolate is the best for the snow! It's delicious and warm but you have to be careful not to let it burn your tongue." Zelly reached over to pull A'tay to one side so that she could have one man on each arm as she tried to decide how best to handle the cold. A tavern would be fun and full of people, but the barn would let them get back out to play a bit more. "Hm. Maybe the barn for now so that after we get warmed back up we can try to make some sculptures! If we decide it's too cold and we realize we're too tired we can go to the tavern from there."

That and the barn would probably mean they warmed up a bit faster. Zelana practically skipped as they made their way, enjoying the feel and sound of the snow crunching under their boots. It wasn't until they were by a warm fire that she turned to grin at her brother. "So now that you've survived and we're warming back up, how did you like it? It's so cold! Last time I came I ended up with a runny nose because I had too much fun. It gave me an excuse to make some good soup when we got back though. A'tay even helped. Maybe we can try to come back at least one more time before it all starts to melt."

A’tay had managed to convince him to remove his hat and gloves and place them near the fire to dry out but Lazerat clung to his mug of hot chocolate with both hands, huddling into it as much as he was the fire. Now that they were inside, he was very aware of how cold he had been underneath all of that fun. It was easy to imagine kids needing an adult to drag them back inside after a certain length of time or they’d become ice statues. That did not sound enjoyable and Lazerat held the mug closer to his chest and catching another whiff of it.

The drink smelled amazing and Lazerat finally gave in and took a sip. It was still a bit hot on his tongue but he took a swallow all the same and hummed his appreciation as the warmth worked down and through his body. This was the way to warm up! “It is damn cold! But having this drink and some soup waiting for me afterward would definitely make spending any time out there all the more tolerable.” Would he want to live up here full time? Probably not but if he had to visit for a period, good and hot food would help make the time a bit easier.

“Sculptures? You can do more than just build little walls to hide behind when your sister starts a snowfight?” Lazerat grinned at Zelly and took another sip of cocoa. He was curious about all the things you could do with snow and if there was anything functional it was good for. He could see it being good for gathering and having cold drinking water or storing the water if the region had dry summers but it didn’t seem to have any other purpose that he could identify beyond that and playing in.

Zelly had her own hat, gloves, and scarf drying by the fire as she relished in the toasty warmth of the barn and her beverage. She grinned up at her brother, amused by how it seemed like the cold had finally started to sink in. "It's fun enough that you don't realize how cold you are. But it makes you appreciate being warm at least."

She leaned in to give her brother a gentle bump with her shoulder. "Maybe the tavern will have some soup if you wanted some now. But I have some soup ready to heat up when we get back to the Weyr if you're patient." If he wasn't patient enough that was fine, it just meant there was more for her and A'tay and whichever friends or siblings he wanted to invite.

"And yes! Sculptures! Last time A'tay and I made chess pieces, but you can make people or dragons, or whatever you want if you're good enough. And I didn't start it, I just knew it was going to start so I decided to be prepared." Zelly stuck her tongue out at him. "Besides, you had fun and got your revenge. Maybe we can make a ship out of snow. Or maybe some snow fish."

After a few more sips of her hot cocoa she turned to A'tay, giving him a grin and a wink as she added, "You'll have to help me make sure I don't accidentally sculpt any embarrassing chess pieces again."

A’tay spit his sip of cocoa back into his mug thanks to Zelly’s casually mentioned chess pieces. “Since we already made chess pieces last time, we don’t need to make them again,” he replied, thinking that was a safe enough answer, especially with her brother there. Lazerat didn’t need to know about how phallic that piece had looked or that A’tay still wondered if she had done it purposely just to make him blush because she was so very good at achieving that.

“You can make pretty much anything from what I can gather. Just depends on your skill and having some tools. My aunt mentioned they had a little competition every year for building castles and sculptures. Zelly, if you want to take your brother out on the ice today, I can go say hello to the family. It’s probably polite I do so and I can ask if it has happened or will soon.” He originally didn’t want to bother them but the more he thought about it and how they were taking advantage of his family’s kindness, A’tay realised he should at least go in and say thank you. But he didn’t want to impose so letting the siblings skate while he peeked in for a quick chat seemed okay. He wished T’ryn was with them—his brother was so much better at blending in with Holders and their customs.

“And we can head back to Ista at any time. Don’t push yourselves because fatigue likes to sneak up on you.” Several of them had learned that the first time they played in the snow. Their muscles turned to jelly and exhaustion struck out of nowhere. Thankfully they were close to a Hold and had dragons to swoop in. It wasn’t like they were way up in the mountains and alone. A’tay didn’t want to think about why he would be up there alone in the first place but could imagine how scary it would be as the cold consumed him. He shivered and drank some of his hot chocolate.

"Oh! Skating might be nice! Even if he doesn't want to try it we can watch everyone else. I am pretty sure I remember where to go to borrow blades. Tell your family I said hello and thank you!" Zelana made sure to slide up to A'tay to get one more quick hug out of him before she let him head off towards his family.

Once her boyfriend had left she turned to her brother, grinning in excitement. Too bad they were in such a public place where his family could accidentally spot them together, or she could have suggested a more intimate sort of fun. Instead she gave him a quick hug too as she excitedly babbled about everything she knew about ice skating. "You put blades on your shoes! And then you just... glide around on the ice! It's both harder than it looks but easier than you think. I'm not very good at stopping though. It's fun to watch too if you don't want to risk falling down so much that your clothes freeze to the ice."

She went to check on their hats and gloves to make sure they'd dried before she pulled hers back on to brave the cold outside. "Come on. We can watch for a bit, and if you want to try I'll help you. I don't know if I can skate backwards as well as A'tay can, but if you start to fall I can at least shove you into the snow on the edge for a softer landing."

"I think I'd be happier staying next to this fire for the rest of my life," Lazerat grumbled though he was smiling. He'd been having a good time in the snow and he was curious about the skating he'd only heard about but couldn't quite imagine. Did the whole thing freeze? Would he fall through? It was so weird and he had to know more!

But it was also cold and Lazerat made sure he was properly bundled back up again while his sister babbled about how it was done and did her best to answer his questions. He wrapped an arm around her shoulders as they headed back out, taking a moment to enjoy how beautiful the scenery was. It was so different to their usual sight of beach and water but just as alluring.

He followed Zelly's directions for tying the blades on but frowned at them once finished. These were supposed to support him? Clearly they did from what he could see of other people gliding on the ice. Maybe it was like rock climbing. You just had to find the right footing and trust your balance. His balance was something that was lacking when he stood, wobbling about with his arms flailing to catch himself. Once he did, Lazerat laughed and took cautious steps to the ice.

He stepped sideways onto the ice, somehow staying upright though his initial testing of the ice showed how slippery it was. "I'm not sure how much I trust you, Zelly Bean. You're devious enough to push me and watch me sail away forever. Or until I hit land and fall." Her idea of stopping in that manner loomed over him and Lazerat suspected falling on any surface would be how he stopped for a while.

It was hard to not outright laugh at her brother as he wobbled around on his feet, but Zelana at least managed to keep it to a soft giggle. He looked so uncomfortable and confused about the whole thing, especially at first, but he seemed to be warming up to the idea quickly enough. Once she double checked her own blades she carefully stepped out onto the ice as well and made sure she was steady on her own skates before she held out a hand for Lazerat.

"Oh, I could watch you slide away, but probably not forever. The pond isn't that big, you'll hit the other side eventually," she said with a giggle. "Oh! watch what I do with my skates and I'll show you how to stop. Or at least the proper way." Zelly pulled away to slowly skate out, proud of herself for keeping her balance at the low speed. It was harder to stay upright when going so slow, but it was much easier to stop the way that A'tay showed her. She demonstrated a few times before carefully returning to her brother. "Okay, so that's how you stop, but I'm not that good at it when I'm going fast. Snow is usually soft though, so just keep that in mind, now let's go!"

Zelana grabbed onto his hand and started to glide one foot and then another, half pulling him along while she demonstrated, trying to alternate between watching him and watching ahead to keep them from crashing into anyone or anything. She tried to spin about to skate backwards like A'tay had, but quickly lost control, arms spinning about as she managed to steer herself back to the edge to fall harmlessly onto the snow. She held up a hand. "Okay... so now you know how to fall. Help."

Lazerat took the lesson seriously, far too interested in this new thing he’d never done before to do anything less. It was new and shiny and seemed like fun so of course he had to know everything there was about it so he could come back to it later on. If he ever wanted to seriously consider leaving Ista for good, going further north suddenly had a new appeal to it. He loved cliff diving into the ocean but he could probably still do that in the warmer months and skate in the colder ones.

But he had to master the skating first and it wasn’t going that well. He wasn’t that steady at first, constantly flailing his arms for balance or grabbing onto his sister’s shoulders for support. His confidence rose bit by bit when he was able to move a bit faster or go a bit further without as much wobbling and it did him well to see Zelly take an eventual tumble. He gasped, worried for her, and then chuckled when it was obvious she was fine. Still, he didn’t want to copy her and did his best to stop but it only ended up in his toes pointing inward as he slowly came to a stop—a stop that had him leaning forward and placing his hands on the ice to help with the balance. But he stopped! By sheer luck, it seemed, as he was inches from the edge.

“Always leading by example, dear sister,” Lazerat grinned down at Zelly, tempted to leave her where she was. He still didn’t trust her and saw it as the perfect chance to yank him down. Then again, they were in public, at her boyfriend’s family’s Hold, and they had blades on their feet. None of that really made it smart to goof around on any level. He still left her hanging with her hand extended for help but stepped off of the ice so he was on stable land again and moved behind her to lift her back to her feet. How many times had he done something similar when they were kids?

“Maybe another couple of laps before we call it quits? I’m having a lot of fun but I’m also freezing my bits off and I happen to like all of my bits right where they are.” He may keep entertaining the idea of living further north but he was such an Ista baby and needed warmth to properly function.
