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 the New Year, one and all! We hope you had an enjoyable and safe holiday season, and we can't wait to see what your characters will get up to over the next twelve months (and beyond!). The Secret Santa Event has been extended until the 30th of January, so for those of you (like me!) who were busy over the end of December, we hope you can get your threads up and running over the next few weeks! There has been a lot of interesting interactions so far! As we extended the SSE, there won't be a specific January event this month! Don't worry though, we have something up our sleeve for February!

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.

Maliah found weyrs and weyr life fascinating. Everything about it was colorful from the people to the dragons and drew the eye. She was allowed a little more freedom in a weyr than she had been the hold and it was doing wonders for her. She sat nestled in a corner, charcoal, and paper in her lap as she sketched.

She'd never attempted to do something before she'd been sent to Jalazmar's household but when she'd gotten there, the talent blossomed. Mostly because she was allowed to have some kind of education as brief and limited as it was.

Her brow was furrowed with concentration as she tried to remember the various different poses and actions the weyrlings had done when they'd impressed. Some of them already committed to paper and charcoal. Maybe she'd be nice and give one or two of them a picture. Wings spread, tails tucked, and mouths agape. She pulled the paper away, staring at it before starting again.

She was going to need more before too long, she thought as a shadow moved into her light. "You're in my light," she said without looking away from her sketch, "Move."

Kor'is was humouring Taith by going for a stroll side by side around the Weyr as the dragon decided to be nostalgic for what wouldn't be his home soon. Having regrets already? We haven't even left yet.

No! I want to stay with Malvayth though I'll miss my other siblings. But I was born here. I met you here. Taith replied, a bit solemn for once. Kor'is sighed and gave Taith's side a pat. We haven't even seen Telgar Weyr yet. You will love it and we can visit here if we really have to. Kor'is didn't think there would be a need, at least not to see the walls of this place. Taith would forget about it soon enough with the love he would undoubtedly have for Telgar.

As they neared the dining cavern, Kor'is announced he wanted a hot drink because the cooler weather still didn't agree with him. So naturally moving further north made so much sense. As he entered, he saw a girl curled up and drawing. You should say hi. He didn't, and kept walking to go make a tea.

A few minutes later and the girl was still there. Go say hi! You're clearly interested in what she's drawing. Maybe you can show your work, too! A hand went to his satchel where his sketchbook was housed. Not many got to see his work but going to see what the girl was doing wouldn't hurt and it would get Taith to stop pestering him.

It's mostly because you're curious. Kor'is ignored Taith and walked over to the girl, casually sipping his tea when he got there.

"That's normally my line," Kor'is snorted softly but he did take a step to the side so he wasn't blocking the light. He knew how annoying that was, especially when someone was doing it intentionally to bug him or get his attention. He supposed he was kind of doing it for the latter as well and was almost amused by how it didn't work and the girl pulled his own stunt of ignoring him.

"The tails aren't stubby enough," he pointed out after seeing a couple of sketches he thought might be dragonets. It was hard to tell with the art being upside down to him and the way she cradled the paper but he felt he was right in the assessment.

"Does it usually work?" she asked as her hand continued to move. She tilted the paper, cocking her head as she studied it. She was fairly new to the whole sketching thing and had found a talent for it and a love for it. Listening to his little comment was annoying even if she knew that deep down she appreciated it. She wanted to ignore it, toss her head, and frown at him until he was cowering in the corner but Maliah was pretty sure she wouldn't get very far with that.

She growled and scrubbed the tails until they were gone before she started drawing again. She shortened them, making the tails stubby as he suggested, and sniffed when she realized he was right. She finally glanced up to see who was interrupting her. Bluerider. Cranky by the look of the wrinkles she could see starting. "Well beastie," she said with a nod, "Apparently you were right and they did need to be stubbier."

She studied him a little more, head still cocked, and tried to remember his name. There were a lot of dragonriders in a weyr and Mali couldn't say that she'd met every single one. "I can't seem to remember who you are," she said, "I can keep calling you beastie but people seem to get pissed when I do that, so unless you like it, I'm gonna need your name."

Kor’is watched as the woman took his advice and being so cranky about it. There was something extra satisfying about not only being right but having the person begrudgingly admit to it as well. But they did look a lot better and more like freshly hatched dragons. Her drawings were fairly decent overall as well and Kor’is wondered if she had studied with a Harper or was self-taught like himself.

He was busy studying her page from his odd vantage point when he was asked for his name and Kor’is glanced up to see she had been studying him. He took that moment to return the favour since she made it sound like they should know each other. She didn’t seem familiar at all but he’d been busy with weyrlinghood for the past year so perhaps their meeting was long ago? Or she just figured she should know him. Or maybe it was her very unusual way of flirting. She didn’t need his name right away for any reason.

“Beastie is just an A plus bestie,” Kor’is stated, straight-faced as he played on the spelling in a slight pun. “I suppose I can call your Stubby in return since the dragon tails are the most memorable thing about you so far.”

The return study didn't bother her, sitting there with a raised brow waiting for his assessment to be finished. There was something always so arrogant about dragonriders when they stood watching a person, not that she minded usually but she was already a little annoyed by his critique of her drawings. She might have admitted he was right but she didn't have to like it. "I can't say that you're wrong," she snorted with a shake of her head.

"A joke is better than flipping your shit about it," she continued with a shrug. Most people, usually women, didn't appreciate when Maliah called them beastie. It wasn't like she was saying they were ugly but they never let her get that far with explanations. What could she do? Couldn't control the way she made people feel, that was their problem and not hers after all. She used to care about it, mostly for her mother and sibling's sake, but now.. Now she'd been given a taste of freedom and there was no going back for Maliah.

"Being Stubby might be the only memorable thing about me," she smirked at him with flashing green eyes, "But at least I don't have wrinkles." She punctuated the words by raising her hand to touch between her eyes lightly. "Oh dear, dear," she tsked with sympathy, "And here I thought dragonriders stopped aging when they impressed."

He knew for a fact that he didn’t have wrinkles and didn’t rise to the bait by even touching his forehead. She was likely referring to the frowning he kept doing at her work that furrowed his brows and insulting his looks was going to make her feel better. “Nice try but I know I’m wrinkle-free and I Impressed just over a year ago so I’ll be looking this good for years to come. While you on the other hand, my poor dear Stubby, seem to be moving swiftly into your declining years.” Not knowing her age, Kor’is figured she was early to mid-twenties and she still looked rather good but it was close enough to the truth. He leaned in just a bit, examining her face closely before giving a gasp. “Is that… a little grey, right in your hairline at your temples?” He smirked as he straightened back up.

This isn’t what I had in mind when I encouraged you to talk to her, Taith pouted in his mind and Kor’is ignored him. He knew perfectly well that the dragon wanted him to make friends and that just wasn’t going to happen. At least, it didn’t happen without a long and challenging road for the person who thought themselves worthy of his friendship.

“Sure about that?” she smirked at him, “I hear sometimes we don’t see our own faults in the mirror. Might want to look again.” He didn’t have wrinkles, of course, but Maliah wasn’t going to tell him that. She grinned at him when he went on and on. He seemed to enjoy listening to his own voice. “It is what it is,” she said with a shrug of slender shoulders, “I can’t change that fact ya know? But at least I won’t be tied down to a single fate. Shame really.”

It wasn’t and she was utterly fascinated by the entire concept of dragons and dragonriders, her brother was one after all but why waste a moment to dig at him? She scoffed when he insisted she had grey hair. She didn’t and it was annoying that he said she did but the hell if she was going to let him see how much it got to her. A single brow cranked up and she hand waved the insult away. “Afraid I’ll look more distinguished than you?” she said and tossed her head bit, “More sophisticated and worldly? Hair’s hair my dear beastie and I can always dye it, but your wrinkles… I don’t think there’s much you can do for those frown lines between your eyes.”

Kor’is rolled his eyes as she kept on the path of wrinkles. He was done with trading barbs about appearances but it seemed she really did obsess over her own looks with the way she went on and on about them both. He was fairly sure she woke every morning and found the nearest shiny surface to examine herself for wrinkles and grey hairs. She probably barely ate as well, worried she would put on the slightest bit of weight. Another glance up and down her body left him wondering if maybe she was trying to lose weight. She was on the curvier side to a lot of the women that roamed the halls.

But that was another easy and now boring target. The one that caught his attention more was how she thought being tied to a dragon was a single fate and possibly a doomed one. He didn’t buy that for a second. “At least I can say I won’t be alone forever with a dragon beside me. Besides, I’m not the one hanging around a Weyr and drawing baby dragons with fervour.” She definitely protested too much about her appearance and her disinterest in Impressing but she gave herself away with the sketches and how quickly she had jumped to take his suggestion to make them better.

"Oh honey," she pursed her lips with a sad shake of her head, "Babykins, sweet beastie, I'm never alone unless I want to be." He could take that however he wanted, it was no skin off her nose. She glanced back at the drawing she'd made, admiring the lines and curves of the images she'd put down on paper. She'd never admit he was getting under her skin. But only just a little, Maliah had dealt with holders with more snot than this dragonrider had and for a lot longer. Beat them off with a stick as soon as her tits started growing. Sad really.

"I'm pretty sure my brother would be awfully disappointed if I missed the impression of all those babies," she said with another smirk. She doubted F'drel would care much whether she missed the hatching of Fort babies but she could pretend. "Besides," she went, "Even I'm not so stupid to think dragons are some terrible and ugly thing. They aren't whers after all and they have nice lines, gotta learn how to perfect my drawing some way, and what better way than in a weyr hmmm?"

She studied him with a jaundiced eye from head to toe, sniffing in dismissal as she did so. "So.." she said, "Still no name beastie?"

Kor’is was close to making a quip about how he was certain she was never alone but that she also never made any sort of connections when she bed-hopped but refrained. It hit a bit too close to home given his own inability to let people in and he wasn’t going to present that little crack in his armour to this woman. You’re getting better! You and Malvayth’s rider are friends now after all. Were they? Maybe they were. He tolerated her a bit more now and the sex was great so that probably counted as a friendship.

“I’m sure you do everything your brother or anyone tells you.” Right. Like this sassy bitch ever listened to anyone without enough rank to back it up. Even then, Kor’is suspected she still gave them sass in one form or another before complying and bitching the entire time. “I beg to differ. You are kind of stupid to be sitting here instead of out asking a dragon to sit for you. Kind of hard to perfect your skills when you’re only going off of a flawed memory.” He had perhaps been studying Cazan too much lately but he was a lot more confident in his lines and drawing more realistic figures now.

Kor’is took a sip of his tea that was starting to cool off to a decent temperature as he debated names. Then he smirked. “No, still no name.” While their interaction was close to being called enjoyable, Kor’is still turned on his heel and started to walk away but did pause to toss over his shoulder, “not sure why you care so much about the name of a bluerider with wrinkles.”

"Used to," she said with another smirk and shrug, "Better than getting my ass beat regularly." Not that she'd been horribly abused but holders weren't exactly nice to their drudges. It was luck that they'd been given to Jalazmar as a gift. Maliah was pretty sure if she'd had to remain where she'd been born she'd probably be broken. It was even better luck that Jalazmar and his wife were relatively nice people.

"Is it stupid though?" she rolled her eyes before flipping to a new page, "Or is it smarter to practice memory skills? Faulty memory or poorly thought-out insults.. Everything needs to be practiced right? Besides not every dragon wants to be bothered and Halomirth deserves a break." Charcoal and hand drifted over a new sheet of paper, starting lines of a cranky old man with wrinkles and Kor'is' eyes. "Because beastie," she said, "I always like to know the names of the people insulting me so I shortsheet the right bed."

“It’s smarter to practice from memory when you actually know what something looks like so you aren’t constantly drawing something wrong,” Kor’is replied with another eye roll. The girl was dense if she thought seeing a dragonet once was good enough to continue drawing from. She’d already proven she sucked at it with the tail length. There wasn’t anything wrong with using a model—whether they wanted to be one or knew they were. I would pose for her! Kor’is had no doubt of that but didn’t relay the message. We aren’t even going to be in the Weyr much longer so no point in getting cozy with her, Taith. She had also mentioned F’drel’s dragon which meant she was likely from Ista and would be heading home soon.

“And I thought you liked a challenge going from your method of drawing. Giving you a name narrows down the thousands of beds scattered throughout four Weyrs, Stubby. Why would I take that away from you?” Once she had his name, she then had to find his weyr—which would be challenging given he was moving in the next few days. And it wasn’t like a lot of people tracked his movements, so good luck to her. He started walking again and without looking back, lifted a hand and gave her a little finger wave.

"You're assuming this is the first time I've ever seen a hatching, eh?" she laughed and continued her quick sketch of Kor'is. "Practice still makes perfect, beastie, whether you think it's a waste of time doing it from memory or not." She was quite enjoying her little back and forth with the bluerider, got her juices flowing, and her imagination going.

"Don't worry," she said with a shrug and blew a gentle breath across her paper to remove some of the charcoal bits, "I'll figure it out and maybe pay you a visit." She grinned at her little threat, knowing full well that she'd either never find out who he was or figure it out and lace his sheets with some kind of itching plant. Bet she could find something. There were plenty of healers around Fort and one of them had to know what she could use. She wondered how well she could draw him without wrinkles. She'd show F'drel, maybe her brother would know who he was and she'd play her little game.

"Tootles, beastie," she called out as he walked away with her own little finger wave that might have only involved her middle one, "I'll be sure to find some wrinkle cream for you when I find your weyr!"
