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!

Kalea took a deep breath of the salty ocean air as she bound off the path, kicking her shoes off and landed in the sand, spraying it around her feet and wriggling her toes. It was warm from the noon sun, but not hot enough to burn her, for which she was thankful. Dressed in a cute, thigh length white dress that had no sleeves and flowed prettily with her movements, Kalea brushed her long hair out of her face and braided it messily down her back. She left the ends untethered, knowing the braid would come free as she splashed around, but uncaring.

Making her way down the sandy embankment, Kalea ran down to the edge of the water, and pranced in, squealing at the cold touch against her ankles as the waves lapped at her. The day was on the warmer end of the scale, for winter, but that didn’t stop the water from feeling like ice at first touch. Wading in deeper, so that her knees were covered, Kalea spun around once, before half jumping as a bigger wave came through, threatening to wet her dress.

It was glorious to be out from under the constant vigilance of her brother and sisters, and Kalea had no desire to head back to the Weyr any time soon; she wanted to enjoy some time by herself, without their judgement and scolding. Sometimes her siblings were just such sticks in the mud and she hated it. Sometimes she hated them. Not for long, but always hotly when it did happen. Kalea never did anything by halves.

Walking through the water, kicking her feet up and splashing as she went, heedless for how wet she was getting, Kalea picked a favourite song, and began to sing loudly. Her voice wasn’t magnificent, but it wasn’t terrible either. Just not harper quality. Her singing was enthusiastic and bubbly, and covered the sound of someone joining her on the beach.

Some days A’tay believed Xyxyth was the most spoiled dragon. As they angled down toward the beach, it was decided this was one of the days. Xyxyth loved the ocean and didn’t mind that it wasn’t the most ideal of temperatures to go for a swim since there was more to enjoy than just splashing around in the water. So A’tay had agreed to spend some of the afternoon indulging his dragon as they observed the water and enjoyed the sounds.

It seemed someone else had the same idea and as they touched down a ways down from the figure, A’tay realised it was one of F’drel’s siblings. He didn’t know them that well but had met each of them a few times when he stopped in to visit the greenrider. Kalea seemed lost in her song, however, not having noticed the large bronze dragon landing behind her and A’tay smiled while he pulled his hair back and tied it quickly and with little fuss. There was always a breeze on the ocean and his hair liked to fall free so a messy tail was better than having all of his hair wildly whipping around.

“You have a lovely voice, Kalea,” A’tay finally called out as a greeting. He smiled when she saw him and he slid down Xyxyth’s side so he could remove the riding straps. He wanted his dragon to roam free but also didn’t want to worry about the salt water getting on the leather and buckles. “I hope we didn’t startle you too much. I usually don’t have to worry about sneaking up on someone with the big guy so I’m not the best at making my presence known in a subtle way.” He really couldn’t think of anything other than Xyxyth circling a bit more and landing in front of her but it was too late for that.

Kalea’s song fell away at the sound of her name, and she spun around in the water, sending it flying in all directions, to face the speaker. A broad smile broke out as she comprehended the compliment, and she gave a playful curtsy, getting even wetter when she dipped, before standing up straight and wading into the shallower water, so she could skip more easily back the way she’d come, and join the dragon and his rider. Conversation was always easier when one wasn’t shouting to the other!

“Hello A’tay!” It had taken her a few moments to figure out which of the bronzeriders he was, because she really wasn’t any good at names and faces, but was confident she had it right when she got closer. He had longer hair, she could see it tied back, and the other one didn’t really. T’rin? No, T’ryn. Yes. He was mated to the goldrider who was elsewhere. Gosh there were so many people in the Weyr and out of it, too, that had to be remembered. How they all manged it, Kalea had no idea. Maybe dragons only picked people with good memories. Or maybe dragons were better at remembering names and faces than humans were, and their riders cheated. Kalea giggled at the idea.

“You didn’t!” She replied cheerfully. “Well maybe a little. But I didn’t fall over, so no worries!” That would have been especially cold! She was chilled a little as it was, what with her splashing around and playing in the water. Her dress was clinging to the tops of her legs, and there were splash marks as far up as her chest. She didn’t mind, though. It would dry. The sun wasn’t full of heat, but it was warm enough that she knew she’d dry off without issue before she got back to the Weyr, which meant F’drel wouldn’t know what she’d been up to, which would mean no lecture! Whoo!

“Do you come down often?” She asked, beaming at A’tay as she took two steps closer to his dragon and held her hand out in question, wanting to touch the big bronze but not willing to actually throw herself at him. Not all dragons liked that, and while Halomirth seemed to absolutely love physical affection, and was quite happy to chat, Kalea had been told it wasn’t always that way and that some dragons even hated it when people spoke to them! Which… well, that was fine! If …. Oh crap, she couldn’t remember his name! But if he didn’t want to be touched or talk to her, that was okay, she wouldn’t be upset! She’d just talk to A’tay while his dragon did… whatever it was big dragons did down on the beach!

A'tay laughed at her explanation and enthusiasm. At least she seemed aware that the water was on the cold side and despite splashing around, she didn't seem intent on diving right in. He had a feeling Zelana would still try and probably still try to get him in the water with her but he only wanted to focus on not drowning. No need to add freezing to death to the list!

"I am here way more than I would like sometimes. Xyxyth loves the ocean and since graduating, we come here every few days." A'tay gave his dragon a pat to his side even as Xyxyth bent down to bump his head against Kalea's hand.

One day A'tay will know the full glory of the ocean and swim with me. But he knows how to appreciate the sounds and beauty of it all at least. Xyxyth told Kalea. Unlike most bronze dragons, he was extremely chatty and social with dragons and humans. Besides, Kalea was F'drel's sister! That meant she was extra special and Halomirth had told him about all the sisters and he was happy to get to properly spend time with one.

Kalea beamed brilliantly when Xyxyth bumped his head against her hand, turning bright eyes on A’tay with a giggle that was almost a squeal. His dragon liked her! Or at least was happy to let her touch him! When he spoke to her, Kalea did squeal, though the sound wasn’t too piercing, and she clapped her hands together joyously before throwing herself whole heartedly into scrubbing at Xyxyth’s eyeridge, like Halomirth had told her felt the best, hoping the big bronze would like it too.

“I’ve never swum in the ocean!” Kalea told Xyxyth with great enthusiasm, turning her gaze to include A’tay in the comment. “It’s been a bit too cold and before F’drel wouldn’t let me.” He probably would have, if she’d asked him or one of her sisters when they weren’t otherwise busy. But they were always busy. Which was how Kalea had managed to get away that day. They were busy and not keeping a super close eye on her and she slipped away. She’d probably get scolded for that, when she got back, but she wasn’t worried. She got scolded all the time. Besides, she’d done her chores before she left!

“It’s so pretty!” She gushed, shifting her scratching a little when Xyxyth moved, hoping she was doing it right. “And I love the sand! And the breeze smells so nice, and it makes my hair go curly!” She shook her head, letting her shoulder length locks fly around her face before she swept them back with one hand, and then quickly went back to her attentions on Xyxyth’s eyeridge. “I’ll swim with you when its warmer!” Kalea suddenly promised, beaming at the dragon. “But I don’t know how! Is it hard?”

A’tay couldn’t help but smile. Kalea was a constant ball of energy and it was kind of infectious. Had she always been this way or was it because she was now in the Weyr with more freedom than he was led to believe she would have had in a Hold? He knew she came from Xyliah’s staff and both he and Xyxyth liked her and they didn’t think she would have been a bad person to work for but he didn’t know much about the Hold F’drel’s siblings had been in before that and he didn’t think it was polite to ask. But he liked the young woman as she was now and hoped she couldn’t to like the Weyr life.

“Swimming’s not too bad as long as you’re not stubborn about it,” like he had been but that was more about his fear and while he was making progress, he sometimes still stumbled and needed some time recovering. “A good teacher helps as well. But don’t look at me!” A’tay laughed and held up his hands to stop her from asking him. “I’m still learning myself. But there are plenty of people who would help you.” Maybe he would ask Zelana if she wanted to teach someone else but he didn’t want to presume too much. Just because she was helping him didn’t mean she would want to become a full time swim instructor.

When you do learn, I will be happy to have you along! But we can play in the shallows until then, Xyxyth promised, not wanting the girl to go too deep into the water otherwise. The current could be deceptively strong and he didn’t want to see her get swept out by it. They would need a strong swimmer with them just in case! But you can also join me sunning on the sand. It gets toasty and so lovely and I can watch the waves and sometimes I see large fish jumping!

Kalea burst into peals of laughter when A’tay said not to look at him as a teacher of swimming, which she had been! She grinned brightly, nodding. She’d find someone to teach her! It would be her newest mission and maybe by the end of the summer she’d be good enough to swim with Xyxyth without worrying the dragon! Plus she bet he’d be a lot of fun to jump off of, and into the deeper water. Imagine the splashing she could do! Kalea giggled.

“That sounds good!” Kalea beamed, still extremely delighted that Xyxyth was choosing to speak to her and that he was so friendly and chatty. Plus he had a lovely voice, and she enjoyed the ‘sound’ of it in her mind. What a strange concept! Kalea giggled again, before clapping her hands together. “Sunning sounds very good!” She agreed, brushing her hands down the front of her damp dress and flicking the wet skirt a little. “I need to be dry before I get back up to the Weyr,” she confided, grinning impishly. “No one knows I’m down here!” It came out in a singsong way, and she laughed.

“How big is a large fish?” Kalea asked curiously, folding her hands and pressing them under her chin as she peered up at Xyxyth, glanced at A’tay, and then looked curiously out at the water. Would they see any big fishes today? How big was big? Did fishes eat people that went swimming? Her eyes widened. Though she would be safe swimming with Xyxyth! He was huge and would surely scare off any hungry fishes… Kalea didn’t think she’d like to be eaten by a fish. Fish were made for eating, not being eaten by!

A’tay worried slightly that Kalea was sneaking down to the ocean—especially when she couldn’t swim. He’d feel horrible if they simply left her behind and something happened. Not that he would have! But if they hadn’t stopped or realised who it was and went further down the beach? That was all too likely and he frowned. Maybe that was just his own fear of the deep water talking and he kept his mouth shut. Kalea didn’t need someone else telling her what to do, something he had a feeling happened a lot if she was sneaking out.

“You’re certainly welcome to hang out with us while you dry off. We can give you a ride back up as well.” Was he willing to be her cover story by offering to say they came down here together as well? Maybe. Although he’d feel bad lying to F’drel and would no doubt cave the instant the greenrider turned his sharp gaze on him. He’d worry more later on and enjoy the time at the beach for now and A’tay moved to sit on a nearby large rock.

Pretty big! To you, at least. Kind of small to me. But maybe about your size, Xyxyth replied as he studied Kalea, taking her measure and thinking about the large fish he had seen before. But they look peaceful! I bet they’re very nice and wouldn’t hurt you, Xyxyth quickly added when he realised the girl might be afraid. He gave A’tay a look as well, wondering why the large fish had yet to factor into his fear and decided that he was right in his assumption that the fish were harmless and friendly.

Having a much larger dragon splashing around in the water is a pretty good insurance policy for keeping me safe from your giant fish, Xy, A’tay remarked, picking up on the unspoken portion of the conversation. He probably would freak out about them if Xyxyth wasn’t around but since he’d never even seen one in the distance, A’tay hadn’t bothered to dedicate a portion of his fear to them.

“Really?” Huge eyes turned on A’tay and she pressed her palms to her cheeks, making fish lips before biting her bottom lip and dropping her hands. “Oh that would be so amazing!” The idea of riding a dragon that wasn’t Halomirth sounded absolutely spectacular. The green was such fun to ride, but F’drel tended to be boring and make his dragon fly seriously instead of having fun when Kalea was on her with him, and well, maybe Xyxyth and A’tay would be more outgoing. The bronze was certainly at least as friendly as Halomirth!

Delighted, Kalea followed A’tay over to the large rock he chose to sit on, and scrambled around it to find a comfortable spot for herself, sighing with a little gasp at the warmth as it soaked into her damp legs and she flopped backwards with dramatic flair, being careful not to thump her head on the rock. “So waarrrrrrmm,” she cooed, covering her face with one arm for a moment before sitting up with a giggle.

“Oh! As big as me?!” Kalea looked down at her legs, wiggling her bare toes and then back to the dragon. “That is a big fishie! I hope they’re nice. I want to meet one. It would be fun to swim with a fish as big as me! So long as it doesn’t try to eat me. I don’t think I’d enjoy being eaten by a fish.” Kalea considered the fish in question, and then smiled at Xyxyth. “Well. I haven’t seen a big fish, but I’ve played in the tide pools, and sometimes there are really weird things in them!” She shifted her legs, curling them closer to her and spreading her dress out to dry better. “One thing I found had like ten arms, and it made the water black when I touched it! It was so slimy and weird!” She shuddered theatrically and laughed again.

A'tay was still impressed by Kalea's seemingly endless about of energy and happiness. She was so different from her brother! He enjoyed F'drel's calmness and liked that they could sit in silence together or talk about random things without feeling like he was being prodded or made to feel silly. With Kalea, he was almost struggling to keep up with her, but it was fun.

"Really? I haven't seen anything like that yet. The water holds a lot of strange things, doesn't it?" He wondered if Zelana would know what that creature was since she loved the ocean so much. Was it something that could be eaten? She'd likely know that as well. He'd report to Kalea if he learned more about it when he did, though.

Still smiling at Kalea's excitement, A'tay took out the final piece of the chess set he had left to carve. Finally. "Can you keep a secret?" He asked with a mischievous grin, convinced the girl would love to know one but couldn't say if she was good at keeping them. "I've been working for months on making a chess board and pieces for one my brothers and another one for F'drel. I have one piece left. I'm excited to finish it but I'm worried he won't like or need it." He showed off the piece that had the rough shape of the king for her inspection if she wanted.

“Yep!” Kalea chirped, answering the question that didn’t really need answering as it was probably just rhetorical since A’tay went on without much of a pause. Kalea didn’t mind. “Its so much fun! I’ve seen some really interesting things! I found a ball that was covered in little spikes! I thought it would be ouchie, but it just wriggled when I picked it up.” She wiggled her fingers, as if they were the sea creature in question, waving its prickles. “When I put it back, it just sat there.” She shrugged, “I’ve found some dead ones, too, I think. They’re all round and fragile and they don’t have their spikes anymore but I’m sure they’re the same thing.”

“Yes!” Kalea gushed, eyes wide and curious. She could totally keep a secret. She loved secrets. Like secretly sneaking out to the beach while her siblings were busy! She giggled at the expression on A’tay’s face, and leaned closer when he held a piece out, brushing a finger tip across the rough surface with delight. “Oh! That is so amazing!” she said excitedly, turning to beam up at A’tay as she sat back a little, giving him his space back and she clasped her hands excitedly in her lap. “I be that he’ll love it! But he probably won’t be very good at saying so.” F’drel didn’t do stuff like that. Not well anyway. But he was boring and chess was boring so he would likely play it. She didn’t really know, since she avoided boring things like board or card games.

Even if he didn’t care for chess, he’d be all awkward and embarrassed that A’tay had gone to so much work for a gift ‘just for him’. Kalea giggled. “I hope I am there when you give it to him,” she said cheekily, grinning and biting her bottom lip joyfully.

He blushed at her praise and mumbled his gratitude. Her response was nice and needed since he was pretty sure Zelly didn’t count as an impartial observer anymore. Then again, she was outspoken and didn’t seem to have a need to lie so perhaps she would tell him if something sucked. But A’tay was also being far too much of a perfectionist on the project as well. He thought he would have finished it months ago but he ended up taking his time on each piece, sometimes starting over a few times, before finally being happy enough with it to start smoothing it out.

“I hope he does. I’ll settle for just liking it even,” he chuckled but knew Kalea was right and her brother would likely flounder and have trouble expressing himself. That was okay. He wasn’t doing it to see a reaction, no matter how much Kalea might be right and it would be fun to see. A’tay just wanted to do something for the greenrider that had been so kind to him since Thallyath’s Flight nearly two years ago. F’drel never asked for anything in return when they met up to have a non-alcoholic drink together where A’tay sometimes found the courage to discuss something that was on his mind and F’drel would listen intently and only offer advice when it was sought after.

“If you’re not there, I’ll be sure to tell you all about it.” Truthfully, A’tay would probably wait to give it to F’drel when they were alone because it would embarrass them both and witnesses weren’t needed. But he would gladly give Kalea a rundown afterward.

“And let me know when you want to go back. Xyxyth and I are here to sun and relax so if we become boring company, just let me know.” He smiled at Kalea, always finding it easy to tease himself—and liked to do it before someone else got a chance to.

After reassuring A’tay that he wouldn’t become boring company, Kalea managed to sit quietly for all of five minutes before she became bored and started to fidget. She wriggled her toes, tapping them together as her feet rocked on her heels; she picked at her fingernails, chewed her bottom lip, stared up at the clouds and then sighed mightily. A’tay wasn’t boring company! What he was doing was actually pretty interesting and she had a slight worry he might hurt himself with the tools he was using to make the shapes appear. But sitting still was never her forte.

Glancing around, she spotted a tide pool not far away, and gave a happy chirp sound as she suddenly slid off the rock to land in the sand with a flutter of her half-dry skirt. Not looking up at A’tay, Kalea skipped over to the pool and peered in, biting her bottom lip again and shifting carefully so she could see the creatures in the water without startling them into hiding. Sinking down to her knees on the rocky edge, she reached in and gingerly poked at something a couple of times. When it didn’t do anything scary, Kalea picked it up. She held it up in front of her nose and examined the creature for a few moments, before grinning and flowing upwards to stand once more.

Spinning on the balls of her feet, Kalea trotted over to where A’tay was still sitting on the rock and working on his chess pieces. She paused before him, the creature in her hand outstretched slightly, before deciding she didn’t want to interrupt his work so she turned towards Xyxyth and quickly closed the distance between them, gushing as she went; “Xyxyth! Look what I found!” she held the creature out to him. It was a bit bigger than her hand and wriggled slightly as she held it out. A big sea slug that felt slimy and was funny colours.

“Isn’t it amazing! I don’t know what it is, but I love it! I’m going to call it Stew!” she giggled. “I wonder if it would taste good in a stew? Do you want to eat it?” She held it out to him with another giggle, not really expecting the dragon to do so. But it was polite to ask! She giggled gleefully when he declined, and turned to run back to the tidepool so she could dig out something else to show the cheerful bronze dragon.

A’tay rested somewhere between amused and worried that he had been right about Kalea’s attention span. He hadn’t meant that they had to sit in silence but it seemed like she was determined to test herself but it didn’t last long and she started to wander. He wasn’t too worried—it wasn’t like she was a child and Xyxyth was watching her antics with amusement and would help if anything did go astray.

But when he looked up again, he saw Kalea poking at something in the tide pool. Was that really a good idea? It seemed so as she smiled and brought something out. A’tay suppressed a grin and went back to working on the chess piece since she seemed intent on getting Xyxyth’s opinion on her find. As long as it wasn’t poisonous or didn’t suddenly attack her somehow, there was nothing to worry about.

Xyxyth eyed the blob that was apparently a creature. He’d never seen anything like it before! It’s very amazing!, he agreed and leaned in a little closer to sniff at it when it was presented as possible food. It was very tiny and wouldn’t do much for him but he wasn’t sure he liked the smell of it anyway and declined the offering. Good bye, Stew! It was nice to meet you! Xyxyth called out when Kalea was suddenly dashing away to return the creature to its home. She was full of energy but very polite and now he saw how kind she was as well.

He wandered over to join her, careful not to block her light or to get too close. He suspected his larger size might scare everything away if they were all as small and squishy as Stew was. He stood a bit back and craned his neck so he could peek inside. He’d never paid these pools any notice before and now he was sad since they held mysterious beings.

“Look, Xyxyth!” Kalea said, turning to face the dragon that had come up behind her, grinning widely as she held out a sea urchin. She had no idea what it was, but it was spikey and wiggly and she loved it just like she loved Stew the Slug. She held the urchin out towards Xyxyth, cradling it carefully in both hands. It waved its pointy points, and she smiled mischievously. “You can eat these ones,” she said, and gave the urchin a sharp tap, breaking the shell.

Pulling it apart, she showed Xyxyth the inside, which didn’t look appealing at all. “I broke the first one by accident, and got it on my fingers,” She explained, carefully cleaning out the gunky bits so only the good stuff was left. “It tastes sweet, and a little salty, and some other tastes I don’t know,” she said. She put some of the shellfish in her mouth, and then offered Xyxyth the rest, raising her eyebrows at him and grinning. “Want to try it?”

Kalea knew, honestly, that it probably wasn’t a smart idea to go sticking strange sea creatures into her mouth, and she mostly didn’t! She’d tried some seaweed, that was kind of fun to eat, and some of the little fishies… but she hadn’t tried anything like Stew, who looked so… bright and for some reason that made her wary of eating him. “Its not poisonous or anything,” she promised Xyxyth. “I’ve eaten lots of them!” She beamed, licking a finger.

Xyxyth sniffed at the tiny offering held before him but A’tay was quicker. “Um, maybe we shouldn’t be trying random things we find at the beach?” He chuckled nervously and Xyxyth sat back before he could dart his tongue out and try it anyway. A’tay gave him an odd look like he couldn’t believe the dragon was about to randomly try something but, then again, the dragon had always been curious. “Besides, you would need a lot larger portion for Xyxyth to really taste it anyway.” He didn’t want to be mean to Kalea or have her think he was scolding her. He was just worried for all of them.

“I bet if you talk to someone in the kitchens they would know more about the creatures you find and how to cook some of them. Maybe even tell you if there are types to avoid, like with plants.” Growing up in Katila, they had all been taught at a young age what plants were edible and which ones to avoid because they were poisonous to the touch or to eat. One of them had tempting berries and they were always reminding each other to avoid it.

“Did you want to collect some and bring back to ask about? You can use my bag,” it only had a couple of items in it that could easily be shoved into pockets or worn to clear it out for the creatures that got collected. He hadn’t seen Stew that clearly but A’tay was pretty sure if he was put in the bag, he didn’t want anything worth keeping in it as well. Maybe he’d just let her keep the bag for her beach adventures.

Kalea smiled brightly when Xyxyth leaned forward to sniff at the urchin in her hands, before her whole demeanour changed and she deflated, pouting as A’tay shot down the offer, and Xyxyth leaned back. Kalea’s expression evened out into a blank mask, and she turned to look at A’tay without any emotion, “Okay.” She said simply, lowering her hands and looking down at the remainder of her sea urchin. She scooped up the rest and ate it, looking at A’tay with defiance for a moment, before lowering her gaze demurely and setting the empty shell to the side.

Eyebrows furrowed, Kalea looked up at A’tay with her head tilted, frowning. “There are plants you should avoid?” she asked quietly, still withdrawn and mild, feeling down and resentful to the scolding she’d gotten for eating the spikey thing – or maybe he simply hadn’t liked her offering it to his dragon? She wasn’t sure, but it didn’t matter. A’tay had gone from really cool to really not cool in a few simple words.

When A’tay offered his bag for her to bring some things back to the Weyr kitchen, Kalea paused, frowning at him openly as she tried to figure out what game he was playing. Was she supposed to take up the offer so she wouldn’t appear rude, or was she supposed to be demure and decline so she didn’t ruin his bag with her sea critters? She really couldn’t figure it out, and shifted uncomfortably, looking down at her hands in her lap. They were gritty from the shellfish and she took a moment to lean over, rinsing her hands in the tide pool.

“That’s okay,” she said quietly after a moment turning back to A’tay and wiping her hands on her skirt, leaving wet handprints there. “You might lose your chess pieces.” Which she was genuinely worried about; if he shoved them in his pockets or held onto them he could drop them before they made it back to the Weyr and then Kalea knew she would be in all kinds of trouble!

Hey, F’drel. So I made sure your sister wasn’t poisoned but I made her sad. Not sure which is worse.

A’tay frowned at Kalea’s reaction to his hesitance and then to his offer to help her learn more about what she was eating. Had he really upset her that much? He hadn’t been mean, at least he hadn’t meant to be. He was just worried and thought he came up with a helpful alternative. He almost laughed at how she defiantly ate the remainder of the shellfish but knew that wouldn’t go over well at all. But he was left with a completely different person staring at him and it made him a bit uncomfortable and unsure of what to do. A few cavern workers gave him the same kind of demure attitude when they saw his knots and A’tay always hated it and didn’t think he deserved any special treatment because Xyxyth was shiner than other dragons.

“I only brought two pieces with me and I always keep them in this pocket so I know they’re safe,” A’tay pointed to the pocket in question and then slid the piece inside it. His tool was slipped into a different one as he left the rock and slowly approached the pair. He didn’t want to spook Kalea who seemed like he had physically smacked her into submission. He felt horrible for apparently misspeaking and didn’t know how he would handle her flinching at him moving too quickly or unexpectedly.

He unhooked the bag from Xyxyth’s straps and pulled out the spare shirt, cloth, and small jar of oil for any itchy spot touch ups and then held the bag out to Kalea. “Please take it. I really do want to help you learn more about the creatures you’ve found and I don’t know anything about them to do so. I’m actually working on getting over a fear of water and never explored these little pools. I think it would be cool to learn about what lives in the water and if they’re okay for dragons. Did you know they have two stomachs?” Honestly, from what he had seen of dragonets and adults over the years, A’tay was confident a dragon could eat anything without much issue. But that was going off the logic that they were eating food safe for humans, not unknown animals.

“And, if you don’t hate me, I’d be happy to teach you about the plants I know some time.” Some were back in Katila and A’tay wasn’t sure if he should mention that just yet, knowing Kalea would want to go right away and he wanted to run the idea by F’drel first.

Kalea didn’t flinch as A’tay came towards her and Xyxyth, just watched him with cautiously calculating eyes, wondering what he was up to now. Was he going to take his dragon and leave her on the beach? She was surprised that he kept his chess pieces on his person, and chewed her bottom lip as he unhooked his bag from Xyxyth and started pulling things out of it. A frown marred her features and Kalea stood up slowly, putting her hands behind her back and shaking her head. “Fen won’t like it if I ruin your bag,” Kalea said quietly, grimacing as she slowly let her personality leek back into view. “He’d probably make me clean it until it’s cleaner than when you got it!”

She really didn’t want to take his bag, and not only because now she had a very clear image of F’drel punishing her for doing so! Though that was the biggest part of it all, really. She didn’t want to be stuck washing A’tay’s bag for a billion years to make it cleaner than when it had been bought or gifted to him or whatever. But it also seemed really bad manners to take a bag that wasn’t hers and fill it with sea creatures that might or might not stay in one piece as they were dragged to the kitchen at the Weyr. Kalea sighed dramatically, indecisive.

“I don’t hate you,” Kalea said, blinking and looking confused as she stared up at A’tay. It took her a moment to realise there had been more to his comment, and she blinked again, this time her excitement and bubbly persona flooding to the surface; Kalea bounced on the balls of her feet, clasping her hands in front of her as she bit her bottom lip. “Really?” She asked, hopeful and excited. Knowing about plants that couldn’t be eaten would be so interesting! Kalea, who absolutely loathed being taught things, didn’t realise that’s exactly what A’tay had offered to do.

A'tay sighed and was somewhat hurt when she didn't take the bag and he slowly lowered the offered item to hang at his side. He considered just walking around her and scooping creatures up himself to show he really was fine with it. He was even going to let her keep the bag to use on other outings to help with her obvious interest. But he had screwed even that up. But the more he thought about it, the more it made sense to use a bucket. That way they could bring the creatures back alive in some water.

At least she didn't hate him despite that drastic shift in personality and demeanor she had undertaken. A shift that didn't seem to last long as it started to come back at the prospect of learning about the plants. Now he would have to make sure he wasn't boring when telling her about them! But if F'drel was okay with the trip to Katila, A'tay felt like he'd get a pass for bringing her somewhere new.

"Really. I promise, though not today since it's getting too late for that. We will need good lighting to help find and identify some." He hoped Kalea believed him that he would take her soon and it wasn't an empty promise. He was having trouble figuring her out and it made him hesitant to ask the next question in case it set her off again.

"Think we should head back now?" He finally asked and turned back to Xyxyth to attach the bag again and fill it back up.

“Okay!” Kalea said happily, clapping her hands together and bouncing closer to A’tay as he put the bag back on his dragon and the contents back within in. When he asked if they should head back, Kalea’s nose scrunched up and she pouted, but then she sighed a big sigh and her shoulders slumped. “I guess we should,” she said sadly, looking around at the beach and then up towards the sky. It wasn’t too late yet, but it was certainly well into the afternoon and Kalea knew her siblings would start to miss her soon, if they weren’t already. Her face screwed up again.

“I really don’t want to,” she said sulkily, honesty in her voice as she reached out boldly to pat at Xyxyth’s side, enjoying the smooth feel of the dragon’s hide. “but Fen will be grumpy if he knows I was out here for so long. And I’m hungry.” Eating the creature had sparked her hunger, even though it was somewhere between lunch and dinner time, it wasn’t close enough to either for her tummy to not object. Kalea grinned up at A’tay. “And I can ask the kitchen people about the things in the tide pools!” She said excitedly.

She turned her bright smile on Xyxyth, before turning back to A’tay; “Can I really ride with you?” She asked with wide eyes, still stroking Xyxyth’s soft hide with a gentle touch.

A’tay laughed at the honesty and then admission that she was hungry despite nibbling on random sea creatures. He supposed it would take a lot of food to keep that energy up all the time. He was a bit on the opposite end. While they never lacked for food in Katila, servings were often smaller to help ration what they did have and he never saw a need to change his portions when they came North. So he wasn’t hungry just yet but he did have a pot of Zelly’s stew simmering at home. Since learning to cook, he’d taken to doing it regularly and even found the courage to invite people over to enjoy it with them.

“Yes, you can really ride with me. And, how about I bring you back to my weyr and you can try a stew I made earlier? Maybe you can bring a bowl back for F’drel as well—not that I’m encouraging you to bribe your brother or anything.” He grinned as he suggested it, feeling a bit naughty for voicing the idea but A’tay also had a feeling Kalea would already consider it an option.

As Xyxyth got into position to best help everyone climb aboard, A’tay pointed out, “Xyxyth’s a bit larger than Halomirth, but the idea for mounting up is the same.” He climbed up first and held out his hand to help Kalea the rest of the way up when she reached the end of the easiest portion of the climb. He kind of missed when Xyxyth was a lot smaller—then again, smaller Xyxyth also liked to run around and needed a constant eye kept on him. His current size meant he could get into less trouble.
