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!

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 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.

Larnell was feeling… overwhelmed. He’d gone from hiding away from his father in the home he’d grown up in, to being “Searched” by his visiting uncle’s dragon, to being packed up, and shipped off to the Weyr said uncle resided in. Now there he was, standing just outside R’nd’s and B’jin’s weyr, with his pack over one shoulder, wondering what it is he was supposed to do. R’nd had given him detailed instructions on where the Candidate barracks were, and offered to take him, but Larnell didn’t want to be bothersome and his uncle had other plans that didn’t involve chaperoning wayward nephews.

Thumbnail of his right hand finding its way between his teeth, Larnell took a deep breath and puffed it out, dropping his hand away from his mouth and biting his bottom lip instead. He’d head to the Candidate barracks and claim a bunk, and then… well. Maybe the dining hall to see what that was made up of. He enjoyed social areas like that; they often had friendly people and fun conversations and Larnell needed both. He was still feeling quite bogged down by the grief of losing his wife and child, and was doing his best not to dwell on it.

Larnell got lost several times on the way to the barracks, but wasn’t surprised by that fact. When he did make it, he found it almost empty. Apparently all the interested Candidates had been shipped off to another Weyr (Fort, he thought someone said) to partake in the pending Hatching. R’nd had said something about taking him if he wanted, but Larnell couldn’t think of anything worse than Impressing five minutes after moving to the Weyr and opted out. He’d take some lessons, and some time, and see what the future brought him. Besides; he hadn’t been officially Searched so he wasn’t even sure there was anything in him that a dragon would want. R’nd had just been kind enough to slap that label on him for Reasons.

Dumping what little he’d brought with him on a bunk and not worrying about whether or not there were bullies in the leftovers who would steal or rummage through his stuff, Larnell left the barracks. Those that were in it didn’t seem interested in conversations or meetings, so he left them be. The dining hall was a lot easier to find, and Larnell entered it confidently, even though he wasn’t really feeling all that confident. Head held high, eyes bright, and curiosity thrumming he was a little disappointed by how empty it was, but there were enough people milling around gossiping and he figured he’d find someone to mingle with without too much issue.

Like that person there! Smiling politely, Larnell made his way to the other person, who was sitting along but wasn’t giving off airs of ‘leave me alone’. Perfect! “Hi. Mind if I join you?” He asked politely, voice low and warm and smile still sitting pretty on his pouty face as he waited for a response.

S'far was lost in thought as he nibbled on a piece of bread, lazily lounging in his chair as he pondered the door situation. He'd finished getting it cut through the wall with a bit of assistance from one of his apprentice bronzeriders (though explaining to K'dar that it was a good and valuable lesson that definitely applied to running a weyr had taken a bit of mental gymnastics to pull off), and now he was trying to think of how exactly he wanted to handle mounting the door itself. Clearly it needed to be something more substantial than a curtain, but mounting the door on only one side of the thick stone wall just seemed awkward.

Perhaps he could do two doors, one on each side so that if a little lover's spat happened one could lock the other out. And if either T'ryn or Cazan left the Weyr for some reason, whoever moved in would probably find that a satisfactory enough solution instead of having to wall up the door completely.

The greeting had him looking up curiously, head tilted as he studied the young man. Not one he recognized, probably a new candidate. At least he was polite, and S'far smiled as he nodded. He wondered if the young man had any idea who he was, his smile broadening to a grin as he considered postponing an introduction. He could potentially have a bit of fun, and maybe learn a bit more about the young man if he tried to delay a proper introduction. "Take a seat, so long as you return it before you leave. What brings you here?"

Larnell blinked, then grinned at the quip about the chair. “Yes sir,” he said cheerfully, pulling out the seat and setting himself down as he subtly looked for knots. He had no idea if the man before him was truly a ‘sir’, but he also knew that while he had been high ranking, now he was just a Candidate and from what he understood, that was little better than being a drudge. Talk about topsy-turvy!

“Dining Halls are a great place to meet people,” Larnell said easily, shrugging one shoulder and picking at the table’s edge with a smile. “Food makes people happy, and happy people are friendlier.” Certainly friendlier than finding some Hangry person out in the weyrbowl or something! Larnell was still a bit too overwhelmed by the whole dragon thing to feel comfortable roaming around where they might land on him. He knew Ayyonth enough to be comfortable around the blue, but he was also kind of smaller than some of the others Larnell had caught sight of before.

“Do you have a dragon?” He asked boldly, his expression changing to one of pure curiosity and wonder. True, he didn’t want to be squished by one, but they were absolutely amazing creatures and while he hadn’t really been truly Searched, he did hope to Impress one in the future! Maybe a nice blue like his uncle. Since he’d finally gotten rid of the pressures that came with holding rank, he wasn’t sure he was interested in getting himself a bronze. Heh. He could only imagine how disgusted his father would be if he Impressed a ‘lowly blue’. “Oh! I’m Larnell! I was Searched today by R’nd’s dragon.” Sort of. But he’d been told to keep that to himself. “He offered to take me to… Um. The other Weyr that has a clutch. But I want to get used to the Weyr first.”

S'far smiled at being called sir, even though he was dressed down from working on the door earlier and not wearing his knots or anything else identifying. Or maybe he was a clever lad and already knew who he was, perhaps he could have asked someone else for the Weyrleader and been sent his way. You are ridiculous and over thinking things.

The dragon was proven right when the young man eagerly asked if he had one at all. S'far chuckled and nodded. "I suppose that is a good a reason as any to come to the Dining Hall. And I more than half a dragon, I've got a whole one." He took a closer look at the young man when he mentioned R'nd, wondering if the family resemblance he saw was imagined or real. It didn't matter either way though, he could find out later with a quick chat if he decided it was important. "Well it is a pleasure to meet you Larnell. I can understand wanting to bunker down here instead of heading to Fort. So you're a Hold boy then? Hopefully you don't cling too tightly to some of those ways."

He took another nibble of his bread before chuckling. "Have you had a tour yet or have you been wandering around looking for well fed dragonriders to introduce yourself to? I could show you around if you'd like."

“What’s his name? What colour is he? It is a ‘he’, right? Did I just insult your dragon?” Curiosity changed to horror and he stared wide eyed at the other man, biting his bottom lip in worry, hoping he hadn’t just caused a huge insult to a girl dragon, though the odds were the man was bonded to a male dragon. And he didn’t really have that flighty look Larnell was used to seeing in B’jin, who was a greenrider, and he kind of expected that from a greenrider as a result.

Once he was reassured he hadn’t caused insult, Larnell flickered back to the other topics that had been touched on, smiling brightly. “Was!” He was so glad to be free of the Hold. It was such a relief to be without the weight of heirdom on his shoulders and his father breathing down his neck with his expectations and demands… Losing Azende still hurt, and the loss of his child before the boy had a chance… that hurt, it hurt so bad that for a moment Larnell’s expression faltered before he packed his grief away once more – he’d face it that night – and flashed a bright smile.

“I haven’t had a tour, though I saw a fair bit of the Weyr as I got here from the barracks.” He chuckled softly, thinking of all the twists and turns he’d taken and how lost he had gotten. “Uncle R’nd offered to show me around, but I kind of like just wandering and seeing it as I go. Thanks for the offer though!” So long as he could find his way to his lessons whenever they started, Larnell wasn’t too worried about getting lost. Unless he got lost trying to find a toilet. That would be a bit of a worry!

S'far couldn't help but laugh at the sudden concern the young man had when he thought he could possibly be insulting. "It's fine, it's fine. My old man is a bronze." Do not drag me into your silly games. Just introduce me properly. With a smirk at his dragon's demand, he added, "His name is Urudith. He wanted me to just tell you and not dragon and on about it."

He noted the brief moment where Larnell's face fell and he resisted the urge to try and offer reassurance for something he didn't even know about. Assumptions weren't always appreciated after all, and the young man's life in the Hold didn't matter anymore so long as he was a candidate here. Though there was that bit of resemblance confirmed. "Ah he's your uncle? He's a good man. You should do just fine in the Weyr. Though you shouldn't have to wander alone while you explore."

Old man, do I have any important meetings that I'm forgetting about? S'far could feel the wave of exasperation from Urudith as the dragon responded, I am not your secretary, but no. You have nothing important that I've been told about at least. So nothing involving any important dragon riders. S'far grinned as he slapped a hand on the table. "I'll walk with you while you explore the Weyr. That way I'll be able to answer any questions that come to mind. An unguided guided tour of sorts."

Larnell blinked at what sounded an awful lot like a pun, but he wasn’t quite sure, and the conversation had moved on before he could speak up to ask about it. Or get the courage to speak up and ask about it. But it had sounded like he said dragon, as in the beasts, and not two separate words like drag on but maybe he just spoke a little funny and Larnell didn’t want to embarrass the man if that was the case! Not when he was being so nice.

“Oh, that’s – okay.” Larnell started, before giving in easily with a small smile when his companion slapped the table and looked absolutely thrilled at the prospect of shadowing him while he explored the Weyr. Larnell thought such a thing sounded absolutely boring for the dragonrider, but if he insisted, Larnell could cope with a companion. “Thanks,” he said politely, meaning it even if he would have been completely content to wander around unsupervised. The fact that the bronzerider was willing to answer any questions Larnell might think up was cool, though. He was sure something would pop up at some point and having someone there to ask without reservation would be good!

Speaking of questions popping up – “Um, before we go walking, is there anyone I should report to that I’m… here?” He had no doubt that the Weyrleaders were much too busy to take note of Candidates that were coming and going, but there was likely a Headwoman or someone in charge of the Candidates that should be told of his arrival, probably. Someone to issue chores to him (eww) or whatever it was that the Candidates got up to when there wasn’t a Clutch on the Sands. Would he have to do lessons? What kind of lessons did one do prior to Impression? Especially since he was quite good at the basics!

S'far was already eager to see where they would go, what questions the young man would ask, and more importantly, how long before the jig was up and he was found out as not just a random bored old man. You are a random bored old man. Why can't you putter about your garden or work on that door some more? At least then you seem somewhat dignified. Urudith thought this entire thing was tiresome. Who cared if this was a new candidate, give the boy a chance to prove himself worthy of their attention first! S'far easily brushed the thoughts aside for now though. Just because he had a job to do didn't mean he wasn't allowed to have fun on occasion. Even if it was odd fun.

Lardnell's first question made him pause as he considered. "Oh I suppose you should meet the Candidate Master and the Headwoman eventually. You will need to know what chores you'll be doing to help out and they will have to figure out what classes you'll need to brush up on to give you a good head start in case you Impress one day. But we can save that for later; if they wonder what took you so long you can just tell them you were learning more about the Weyr. Now then, son," S'far grinned as he gave Larnell a firm slap on the back, "where to first? Do you have any sorts of hobbies or interest other than dragons? Maybe I can make a suggestion based off of that."

Larnell grunted at the heavy slap to his back, not having been expecting it as he mulled over the eventual meeting with the Master and the Headwoman. He really didn’t think keeping them waiting on his meeting them was a good idea, since people in those kinds of ranks tended to be short tempered with tardiness, but he wasn’t really willing to argue with the dragonrider. A bronze dragonrider. He’d just tell them the truth – he got roped into walking around with a strange bronzerider who was insistent on being his guide.

Smiling, though he could still feel his back stinging where the man’s hand had slapped down, Larnell stood beside the bronzerider and thought about his question, picking at his lower lip as he did so. “Well, besides dining halls?” He asked, flashing a grin that faded quickly, though the amusement was still lingering on his features. “Not really, if I’m honest.” He enjoyed learning, and listening, and he was fairly quiet by nature so Larnell wasn’t really inclined to talk about himself. He wasn’t really sure if he had any hobbies – the things he’d had to do as Heir didn’t count – but felt the Weyr might be a good place to find one or two.

“What do people of the Weyr do to occupy themselves when they aren’t doing chores?” He asked after several moments of thought, pausing for a moment to make sure his companion was ready to begin their aimless wandering around the Weyr, before setting off towards the exit of the Dining Hall, and turning in the opposite direction than he had entered from. No point going back over what he’d already seen! He was genuinely curious about what he would do when he wasn’t doing chores or brushing up on his education. What was there to do? Could he hide away in a library somewhere? Did Weyrs have libraries?

"Not really? Come on, you have to be interested in something. Maybe you're secretly an artist? Perhaps you draw inspiration from nature, enjoy sketchy situations? Do you read? There is a library, though the best parts of the collection are sometimes already booked by another avid rider reader. Or perhaps you take after the Weyrleader. He has quite the collection of hoes. Uses them to weed out quite a few potential problems. He can be quite de-fence-ive about his territory though. So just be sure to stay out of his garden unless you want to help out."

Don't do this. You will scar the poor boy. S'far chuckled, giving Larnell another firm slap on the back as they began their wandering. "Otherwise, if you're not interested in gardening, some people enjoy a bit of crafting. We don't have the same resources as a proper Craft Hall, but there are plenty of talented individuals to learn a thing or two from if anything catches your fancy. I'm currently working on a project to add a door between two adjacent Weyrs for one of R'nd's boys. Oh, some people enjoy fishing or camping. I enjoy getting out myself on occasion."

S'far scratched his chin as he tried to think of other potential sources of entertainment. "I suppose you could always try to find a nice young lady or gentleman for entertainment as well if that was something you were interested in. I'd be a terrible wingman though."

Larnell was aware, now, that the bronzerider was definitely spouting puns. Sketchy situation? He was smiling slightly as he walked along beside him, wondering if the man was aware that he hadn’t shared his name yet, or if he should ask for it again. He was entertaining, at least, though Larnell wasn’t expecting the comment about the Weyrleader and choked on a breath at the information that the man had a collection of hoes he used to weed out problems. It took until the bronzerider mentioned his garden for Larnell to realise he didn’t mean the man had a collection of women nosing out gossip. Larnell tried to fight off the blush at his misunderstanding, but couldn’t stop the snorting laugh.

A small laugh that came to a gasping halt when his back was slapped again. He stumbled a step, not having expected it at all. But that was twice now, so clearly the man beside him had a thing for back slapping. Okay, so be prepared. He could remember that. He came back from his musing at the side mention of one of his cousins, and Larnell nodded. He wasn’t sure about camping or fishing or rock work to make doors, but it was certainly interesting to learn what occupied other people’s time when they had it to spare.

“Aah,” Larnell stumbled over the word at finding a companion, and flushed darkly. “I’ll pass.” He said with a soft voice, but his words were firm. He could lose himself in lust, but while he’d never been head over heels in love with Azende, he’d never betrayed her either. Which meant all his sexual exploits had been with the young woman he’d had to bury not so long ago. The idea of sleeping with another woman was… Larnell shook his head, dispelling the thoughts and pursed his lips. “Maybe I’ll check out the library.” He said after a moment, though his voice was still slightly distant.

S'far raised an eyebrow curiously at Larnell's reaction to his last suggestion. "Of course, you don't have to chase after anyone if you don't want to, though hopefully you aren't bothered by how much more open things are here than out in the Holds." If the boy impressed a dragon that would be a different matter of course, but he would leave him to learn those sorts of things in his classes. Dragons had needs and desires after all, and S'far didn't know a rider that would or could deny their mate. Not that Urudith had chased anyone in a while to demonstrate that point, but the bronze had always been a bit picky and S'far had lost a lot of his own drive for a while after Ronelia had passed.

The mention of the library was a happy enough change of topic and S'far eagerly nodded, gesturing towards the path they should take. "That way then. It's not the most well stocked library, I'm not sure if you're from a Hold that has a more impressive collection, but I think it does rather well. We've been turning a new leaf and trying to collect more books, even assigning a few scribes to make copies from borrowed texts. If you have the spine for it maybe you can help out here. You could always try to speak with someone tome-morrow about it once you're settled in more."

He led the way to the library and pushed open the doors before ushering in Larnell. "Here we are. Not much page-entry, but I'm rather fond of it."

“I’m not, really,” Larnell mumbled, feeling embarrassed as he trotted to keep up with the other man’s long strides. “Just not interested in playing.” He said, and was thankful when the subject was dropped in exchange for focusing on the library. Larnell let himself fall into that topic without as much reservation, relaxing as his companion babbled about it, and smiled slightly. “I have a neat hand,” Larnell said easily, “though I’m unsure about a project as intense as copying a whole book.”

He’d certainly never done anything that impressive with his writing, and while he felt he did indeed have a neat hand, he wasn’t sure if it was up to the whole book copying standard that Harpers were more often employed for… He was interrupted by the pun, and snorted softly to himself as he followed his companion to the door and was ushered inside the library. Larnell looked around with curious interest, smirking slightly at the introductory pun but not commenting on them.

“Nice,” he said, rightly impressed by what he was seeing. It wasn’t a Harper Hall library, but it was hardly small and he was certainly interested by the number of spines he could see lining the shelves that were nearby. It didn’t matter what the tomes contained, he wanted to explore them all. His home library wasn’t nearly as impressive and had mostly been stocked with records of income and expenditure which was quite boring to read after a while. “I think I’ll need to memorise the path from here to my barracks,” he said with a girn, still looking around curiously.

"Well I'm sure there are other things you could help with other than copying an entire book. Sorting things and the like. There is quite the assortment of books you know. Lots of book keeping of the books. Maybe minor repairs, you know how it goes. Some people are tear-able with how they treat books." S'far was glad to see that Larnell was interested in the library though. It was probably a good indication of his character or intellect in some regard.

S'far strolled along through the library, pointing out different sections of books and the best little corners to read in (at least in his opinion). "I'm sure you'll figure it out quickly enough. And if you decide you want to help out just let someone know. I'm sure they can find something for you here." Are you going to do this to every new candidate now? Or is such preferential treatment reserved for those bold enough to speak to you? He wrinkled his nose in an amused smile as he thought back to his dragon, I think only those that are bold enough for now. Though is it really bold if he didn't know who I was? I suppose I still was a strange man so there's at least that.

After giving Larnell enough time to look around he quietly asked, "So, was there anything else you were interested in seeing? Or shall I just leave you to the books? I know some people like to spend a bit more time in here than others."

Larnell followed after his companion happily, taking in all that was said about and seen within the library. He loved books, loved learning. Finding a library full of new material to read was exciting, and Larnell couldn’t wait to lose himself in a world of new information. The section of fantasy books caught his attention, and he paused to presue a couple of titles with curiosity. He’d never seen and certainly never read stories that were made up; all Larnell had ever had access to were works of fact, not fiction. How fascinating!

“I didn’t know this type of book existed!” Larnell said with curious interest, holding up a book that had a rather bland cover, but the blurb on the back was interesting. Some kind of steamy romance, apparently – which definitely spiked his interest – “Are all these books make-believe?” He asked the bronzerider, peering up at the shelving. So many! “Who writes them all?” His eyes were wide. How much time did it take to write a book about made up things? It was such a bizarre concept!

“Um, I think I’d like to hang around here for a while,” Larnell grinned, still holding his romance book. “I’ve never read anything like this. It sounds fun.” His eyes were sparkling with innocent excitement; he had absolutely no idea the filth that was in the particular book he’d picked up.

"Oh we get all sorts of donations. One of the other bronzeriders has been working hard to increase the supply as well, something about knowing a Harper." At least that's what he thought he remembered K'dar saying when he'd asked the young man about the influx of fiction books. S'far smiled in amusement at the questions. "Yes these are all made up as far as I know, they should have the author marked on them, though I'm not sure if it's a real name or a fake one considering the content."

S'far eyed the book that Larnell had grabbed, eyebrow raised curiously. "An interesting choice. I've personally never been as interested in those sorts of fantasies but I can understand why some find them appealing. Just make sure you put it back where you found it when you are done and don't do that silly thing where you fold the pages to mark your place. The front desk should have some spare slips of paper you can use if you need."

Still, odd choice of book or not, S'far was glad to see that the young man was excited and happy. He chuckled and gave Larnell a pat on the shoulder. "Have fun, don't get too wrapped up in your pages. Or at least make sure you have a good cover story of your own. I am going to head back out, but if you ever have any other questions feel free to find me and ask and I will try to answer them if I have time."

With another pat, S'far turned to leave before Larnell could catch him with any other questions. You realize you never actually introduced yourself. Oh I know. It's funnier this way.
