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!

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.

After attending the Hatching, she knew she wanted to Stand someday. How awesome would it be to Impress a blue like her grandfather or even a green. Mama had gold so it seemed odd Zarel would Impress one but who even knew? It wasn't impossible and her mother had Stood for a long time, hadn't she? She took a bite, the last one, of the stew and decided she could do anything her mama could, right? She wasn't a baby, either. She was eleven and that was almost old enough to Stand!

How incredible would it be to Impress her very own dragonet at any Weyr--even Telgar which was so cold toes probably froze. She frowned a little, glancing around the dining hall as she looked for a familiar face that was missing. Where'd he go? No one was that fast of an eater, right?

Since Taydarell wasn't at dinner and she didn't want him to starve to death, she made up a plate to take to him because she could. What if he shrivelled up? How horrible. No one should miss dinner, that was for sure and not an especially good one, either, which this was. He was nice to her and she didn't want him to miss out on the bubblie pie she'd snagged him either. Her dark hair bounced around her shoulders as she walked the corridor to the room he shared with his brother T'pel and knocked briskly.

"Taydee!" she called, "You missed dinner. It's Zarel. I brought you some of the best stuff they had. And a bubblie pie fresh from the ovens. I asked special. Good bread, too, for dipping."

His stomach hurt. A lot. Another rumble in his gut had him writhing on the stool next to the hearth, arms wrapped around his middle. Maybe he shouldn’t have had so much of that stuff...what had T’pel called it? Coffee? Well, whatever it was, it wasn’t klah. But, it did the job it was supposed to do. He didn’t want to risk being sleepy at all that day. He was sure the precious firelizard egg was going to hatch any time now! And if it took nasty coffee to make sure he was wide awake for it, then fine.

His stomach grumbled again. Or maybe he was just hungry. He hadn’t eaten, after all, since the breakfast he’d had at first light, when he’d had his first cup of that gross, smelly liquid. He downed the last of it that was in his mug. He’d lost track of how many cups he’d had, but the pot T’pel had made him that morning was gone.

Hopefully he wouldn’t need to make more. He didn’t watch his brother make the stuff, he was too busy keeping an eye on the egg, so he probably would’t do a very good job making the brew. Not like that lack of skill would make it worse, though. It was already pretty bad.

Footsteps outside signaled someone coming. T’pel? No, he was too busy hanging out with Kestra. And Ky wasn’t back yet. Plus T’pel usually came from the ledge anyway, either by Ky or using the outside steps up from the bowl. So who was it? His question was answered when that girl’s voice piped up and told him why she was there.

Maybe food would be a good thing.

“Come in! Door’s unlocked!” He called back, not really feeling like moving anyway. The egg needed watching, and his stomach still kinda hurt, too.

"Okay," she called back and slipped in with her tray. "I saw you were gone from-- Ooh. You got an egg! That's why you missed dinner. How close to hatching is it?"

She passed the plate off to him immediately and crouched to look at it without touching the surface of the egg. It looked pretty hard, maybe like it was going to hatch any time. It must be so close to hatching that if you looked away it might pop! crackle! and the little creature would chirp like the gold had done until someone fed it.

Or something cute like that. Maybe it wasn't always cute, either, maybe it would be like that angry brown. It could be. Who knew? Not her!

Then again, maybe they were different than dragons to some degree. It could get weird. Things got weird all the time. She eyed Taydee and grinned.

"Can I sit with you and wait, too? I did go to the Fort Hatching where my ma Impressed the queen but we weren't sitting really close. I did get to take a piece of the shell. I was gonna get it made into a necklace for her."

The smell wafted to him as soon as Zarel squeaked through the door. Another growl from his stomach and he determined that he must just be hungry. Just really, really hungry. His mouth started watering, too. Yes, hunger must be it. He eagerly reached for the tray as she bounced in, nearly tipping it into the floor though as he also tried to reach for her as she jumped down by his egg! But no, she didn’t touch it. She better not. And she did bring him food. He supposed he could let her stay, just for a little bit.

With a begrudging grunt, a spoonful of stew already occupying his mouth, he tried to talk around it. “Got it from da candidate mashter. Itsh gonn’ hatsh any time mow,” he mumbled before swallowing. Mmm, that was good. He swallowed again for good measure, trying to make sure the bite was all the way down before he scooped another one to his mouth. Thinking better of talking and eating at the same time, he eyed the spoonful as he spoke. “And I guess you can stay for a bit.”

The bowl emptied as his belly filled, and he found himself tearing at the bread as he listened to her tale. “Wow, the queen? That’s amaz—” He coughed, catching his own enthusiasm, but tried to make it look like the bread. If he was going to be a bronze rider someday, he couldn’t get so worked up over every single Hatching. Dragonriders saw lots of Hatchings. How was this any different? And he wasn’t there, so that was that, too. “That’s pretty neat.” He finished, much calmer.

His stomach seemed to have calmed since getting food into it, and he shifted to set the tray down beside the stool, next to where the small bowl of meat sat waiting for the tiny occupant of the egg. “Thanks for dinner, Zarrie. I guess I was kinda hungry.”

They stared at the egg shell for a bit. He rotated the pot and heaved a sigh. He got it almost a week ago. It should have hatched by now, right? The shell was all hard. The tiny little stretch-mark things had grown. Why didn’t he have his firelizard yet? With nothing to do but stare at the thing, he figured he might as well talk to Zarel. She was nice, after all. Like flowers. "Wanna split the pie?"

"Sure!" she said smiling as she settled further back from the egg after having her fill of looking closely at it. "I don't think I've honestly ever seen an egg this close before. It's big, too. What do you think is in it? Did you get it from the Candidate Master?"

It could be anything, really, but the larger eggs were usually gold, bronze, or brown. She hoped it was a bronze because Taydee deserved something awesome. He never go mad at her for running and he'd always been nice during classes and he was twelve already so he could actually Stand if he wanted. Shen had to admit she was a little jealous of that fact. She wished she were twelve right now!

Zarel bit her bottom lip, still staring at the egg with wide, dark, eyes.

"And do you have names you're considering or are you gonna wait for it to hatch? If it's a bronze, maybe Jasper, like the stone. It's pretty. That would work for a brown, too. Ma's got a brown she named Shard and he can do all sorts of tricks. Good messenger, too. Ma named him Shard because he's very intelligent but when he was small, he used to break her clay figurines by knocking them around with his tail. It's pretty long."

The pie smelled so good! And tasted better! He licked his fingers as he gave half of the handheld pastry to Zarel. At least she had backed away from the egg. Eyes growing wide in disbelief at her questions, he stifled a laugh. “A bronze silly! I have been so great in all of my classes, and helped some riders oil dragons, and even helped clean up after messy creché, that the candidate master was so pleased he offered me a bronze!” Well…At least, that’s what T’pel had told him. And he was fine with that. He had been working hard. He bit his lip. He didn’t want to think about that, though. An egg was an egg, and a bronze was even better. “What, can’t you tell by the color shell?”

He watched her face fall slightly and suddenly felt kinda bad. She wouldn’t know, would she? She hadn’t been around them before. “It’s okay, Zarrie. They do kinda look alike if you haven’t seen them much, especially bronzes and browns.” He leaned forward conspiratorially. “I got to see almost the whole clutch when I went to pick it up with T’pel!”

Hunched forward, bent towards the hearth, his stomach took that moment to offer a threatening grumble. Uh oh. Maybe food hadn’t been a good idea. Or was it the coffee?

Rumble rumble.

Oh no.

His eyes went wide as a horrible hurt went all the way through his small stomach, cramping up his insides and making him wince. Desperately, he looked at the egg, sitting so serenely in the little pot of sand by the hearth. He looked at Zarel, then over toward the privy . He could wait, right? He was fine.

Rumble rumble.

Maybe not. His gut twisted hard, and he stood up, doubled over, his arms again wrapped around his middle. “Zarrie, watch the egg! I gotta go!” Half-waddling toward the necessary, and the pot waiting within, he cast nervous glances back toward the girl and his precious egg, groaning…did it just wiggle? No way. It hadn’t moved all day. It would be fine for a couple minutes. Or more. Another wave of awful cramps made his insides make awful noises, and he groaned, frustrated. “Let me know if it does anything!”

"I bet seeing the clutch was pretty awesome," she said with a nod. Technically, she'd get her egg next turn when she was twelve but it was such a long wait -- worth it, sure, but long. "Oh, I see what you mean about the colour. I suppose it is bronzey, now that I look at it."

And then she looked up to see Taydee making a run for it. Oh no. She'd taken her eyes off the egg for two seconds and snapped them back on it dutifully.

"Better hurry," Zarel said, her voice a little anxious. The egg shivered a little. "I'm pretty sure it just wobbled. I know I didn't just imagine it."

OH. IT JUMPED.

"Taydee, it's moving!" she hissed. "I can hear him tapping on the egg, I swear."

Taydarell thought he heard the girl say something and his brow furrowed as he tried to make sense of what sounds he heard. His thoughts were interrupted, though, by his stomach twisting in on itself. and hurriedly, he closed himself into the tiny room, hoping the stone walls of the weyr would both allow him to hear what was happening outside, and yet still block the girl out there from hearing anything about what was going inside.

He mercifully allowed his poor stomach some relief. What had done this? Was it the stew? The pie? He did feel bad right after the pie…oh, no…the coffee! He hadn’t been feeling good since he’d been drinking it…maybe he should have stuck with klah…

“What?” He yelled. His stomach flipped, and he doubled over himself again, groaning. He hated feeling sick. And this was the worst kind. His insides were doing somersaults and he knew he was going to be in there for a while. He determined he never, ever wanted to touch that nasty coffee ever again. He was sure it was that stuff that did this to him. Why did people think that stuff was good if it made your insides try to become your outsides?

The girl was trying to tell him something about the egg, but his insides were so unhappy he had a hard time focusing on what she said. “I didn’t hear you!”

This was bad. Taydee was in the necessary, she was with the-- THERE. It definitely rocked. It would hatch without him if he didn't hurry up! She lifted the egg with its pot and banged into the privy door with her head as she went to knock.

Ow.

"TAYDERELL, THE EGG," she yelled, her voice breaking a little. She didn't want to have his bronze hatch in her arms but it was totally kicking up a fuss now. "The egg is doing things. What do I do? Shove it in with you?"

CRACK. Scrabble. Crack.

"It's gonna hatch right now! Oh no..." What would have happened if she hadn't come? Would that be worse? The egg was making shuffling sounds now. "Hold on until Taydee gets out, little man. You hear me in there?"

“What are you doing?!” Voice cracking, he shuffled his clothing around to try and cover himself up as the door threatened to fling open., and then it dawned on him what she was trying to do! She was bringing him the egg! “Oh, yes!” He leaned forward, calling back out to the Zarel. “And don’t forget the meat! If I don’t feed it, it’s gonna fly off for food and won’t Impress at all!” He was practically screaming now, and his poor stomach still hated him, but his firelizard was hatching! His bronze was hatching! He’d earned that egg, and he was gonna get it, too!

He leaned forward again and was just able to unlatch the door. Another rumble of his insides kept him where he sat, and abandoning hopes of retaining any dignity, he waited eagerly for his friend to return.

“Hurry up Zarrie!”

She was definitely hurrying but she couldn't carry the meat bowl and the bowl with the sand, too. Instead, she put the egg tucked against the crook of her arm, cradling it against her, and hauled the meat bowl in the other.

"I've got it, I have. Meat too." The hairs at the back of her neck rose as she twisted the knob to the privy door.

Seven different alarm bells went off in her head at that moment because, with a jerk and a shudder, the egg hatched just as she was coming through the door and there was a creeling firelizard clinging to her hair and shoulder. The door had crashed inward, the meat bowl rolled and--

"Oh no, no, no. No!" she cried, watching the creature's eyes whirl red and orange from hunger. "Taydeee, stuff something in his face! Ouch. Sharp little daggers. Go to Taydee, silly thing! He's your boy. Go to him!"

The bronze was all wings and legs and the creeling/hunger feeling was awful like she hadn't eaten in days but-- Oh. He must Impress Tayderell! He must.

The door crashed open and she was holding a ball of eggshell and firelizard—firelizard??—and the bowl of meat tumbled to the floor, and—

“Oh noooo!” He wailed, watching in utter despair as the bowl spilled away from where he sat! He leapt forward, tangled in his own trousers around his ankles, scrabbling at the floor and—the bowl! He reached for the bowl and flung it over, but no morsels remained. “No, no no no!” He shrieked, features drawn in a terrible grimace as tears threatened to spill down his cheeks. The little bronze must be sooo hungry! If he didn’t eat—

“ZARRIE, FEED HIM!” He watched helplessly from the floor, backside in the air, and completely unable to get out the door to the meat morsels sitting tauntingly just outside his reach. Zarel stood right in the way with the firelizard, his firelizard, and he had nothing to offer the stupid thing! He screamed at the girl, hoping to at least startle her into moving. “FEED HIM BEFORE HE FLIES AWAY!” He knew he couldn’t get himself up in time, and the meat was out the door, on the other side of Zarrie, and there was no way he could get to it in time without risking hurting the fragile little thing. The tears spilled over as he watched her, hurt and embarrassed and frustrated. He had been so close!

She did as he said, quickly getting one morsel after another into the little guy before she realised she could feel him in her head. She was silently crying because she'd just Impressed Taydee's bronze just by trying to get it to him. And the Impression was wonderful and terrible all at once. What kind of friend was she if she Impressed his bronze?

It was horrible.

Zarel sniffled for a moment.

"You should feed him, too," she said softly.

"I'm so sorry. I tried really hard to get him to you." What would have happened if she hadn't been here? The creeling ceased as the firelizard nuzzled her hand. He wasn't quite full yet.

"Taydee? Please name him."

With an exasperated growl, Taydarell pulled his tunic around himself, yanking his trousers up. Cheeks flushed with embarrassment and outrage, he glowered at the girl holding his firelizard. How dare she? How dare she Impress his firelizard? His bronze? He stood there seething for a moment, lip quivering and tears streaming angrily down his cheeks. He watched the pair for a moment, the flit now contentedly nuzzling the girl’s hand.

He choked back a sob. He’d been waiting for so long! He felt another sob building in his chest, and he hiccuped, trying to fight it back down. T’pel had helped him pick it up from the candidate master! What would he think? All of the hurt, frustration, shame, and anger finally showed itself as a small, whimpering wail. Low, sad, and completely uncontrollable, the sound escaped before he had any chance to try and stop it. Not like he cared now, though. She had a firelizard. She had a bronze. His bronze. For a fleeting moment, he thought that seeing her with it was far worse than it going feral, after all.

All of the upset made his stomach rumble once more, and, with one more mighty glare, he slammed the privy door shut, leaving him and his stomach to their own rumblings, away from Zarel and the little bronze.

After his insides had finally emptied themselves, and he’d had a chance to settle, he begrudgingly came back out into the main living area, hoping she’d be gone with her prize and he could sulk in peace. But no, she was still there, kneeling by the hearth now, the little flit curled, sound asleep, into the crook of her arm. Her eyes were puffy, and her face all blotchy. Had she been crying too? Good.

Without a word, he sat down, frowning at the pair. The little bronze did at least look happy. He was a pretty thing, too. The tears welled fresh in his eyes again. Pretty, and not his. He blinked the tears away furiously, determined not to let them show.

“Jasper.”

His voice was low and sounded like he’d gargled sand.

“Jasper is a good name.”

Eyes flashed with fury as another thought occurred to him. “And don’t you dare tell anyone how this happened! If you do, I’ll…” he balled his hands into fists, but it was an empty threat, he knew. He didn’t hit girls. Even if they stole his firelizard egg. And he was still too sad about the whole thing to fight about it. He just wanted to be alone now…

"Okay. Jasper he is." It was a good name and matched the red of the stone she had pictured in her mind. Zarel paused to stare up at him, looking shocked.

"I'd never tell anyone," she said in a very quiet voice. "Why on Pern would I? You're...a friend and friends don't tell things like this. We'll make up a story and it'll be--"

She had watched the pot, had tried so hard to get it to him, and then mucked everything up. His anger made her back away a little towards the door.

"Don't be mad at me forever, Tayderell. Please. I couldn't bear it." The bronze, sensing her sadness, crooned, stretching out his head for Taydee to pet if he wanted. His girl wanted to make something right, after all.

"I'll find you the best egg I can and make it up to you, I promise. Maybe two."

He screwed his face up in the biggest scowl he could manage, flinching away from the little bronze like it was a tunnel snake. He didn’t want anything to do with it now. Heat flushed his face again and he bit his lip, shaking his head. “Just…go away.” His voice wavered from anger to sadness, and he sniffled. “You’ve done plenty already, Zarel.” He glared at her, confusion and sadness in her eyes. He felt bad for making her feel bad, but she started it. She Impressed his firelizard.

It was by accident, though…she was trying to help. He was upset and angry, and he wanted so badly to blame something. It wasn’t his fault, was it? No! It couldn’t have been. He couldn’t blame himself for it. He supposed he could blame the coffee…but blaming a drink didn’t make sense…nothing made sense. Well, he wanted to blame something and the girl in front of him was the only thing left. Hmph.

“And I’ll be mad for however long I want.” Taydarell punctuated his point with a fist pounding the chair next to his thigh. And how did she expect to get more eggs?! The thought stung like ocean water on a skinned knee, and his pout deepened. She was making her way to the door, her prize—Jasper—in hand. At least she was leaving now.

Before she slipped out, he whipped around to face her on his seat, eyes pleading. “Just…promise to take the best care of him, okay?” The tears threatened to spill again as he waited anxiously for her reply. She would, he knew. She was always the most thoughtful girl in creché, always trying to be helpful and kind to everyone…but he wanted to hear her say she’d take care of the little bronze. Just to make sure.

His words hurt so much and her eyes kept getting wider as tears fell from them. He sounded like he was going to be angry forever and never forgive her. Still, she marshalled herself as best as she could.

"I'll take the best care of him ever, I promise, Taydee."

Her eyes filled up and her nose ached and she wiped at her eyes with the back of her hand. He hated her, now, and it wasn't even her fault. She'd been doing everything she could to get him his firelizard.

Everything, even embarrassing him in the process and now he was going to be so angry every time he saw her.

"He'll be the best looking, oiled, and handsome bronze in the Weyr. And I will make this up to you, somehow. I never back out of a promise. I know I can't fix it now and I...I know you're angry at me but somehow, I'll make it right."

Maybe when he wasn't so angry with her they could-- They could do things again. She shut the door behind her, walked a little, and then dissolved into tears, sniffling and sliding down the wall. She'd never, ever stay around anyone's firelizard egg again. She'd never, ever get that close if it was going to cost her a friend like she was pretty sure just happened.

The little firelizard crooned as she cried, his eyes whirling in sleepy distress.

Pursed lips drew into a frown as he nodded at her, his face more sadness than anger now. He watched her disappear out the door, and he was pretty sure he heard her sniffling outside. The slight feeling of satisfaction that he had earlier, knowing she felt bad, too, didn’t feel as good, now. His stomach hurt, but not like it did earlier. He moved to curl up on the couch, drawing his knees to his chest and holding them against him, hoping it would make him feel better.

But no, this was a different hurt. This was the kind of hurt, like when he did something he knew he wasn’t supposed to do…which didn’t happen often now, because he had to be good if he was ever going to Stand at a Hatching, but he still knew the feeling. But…he hadn’t done anything wrong! He had every right to yell! And to make her leave! She took his firelizard! Right…?

But she hadn’t meant to do that. And she had been trying to help, to bring the egg to him, and she hadn’t meant for the stupid thing to hatch in her arms. It wasn’t on purpose. It was just an accident. A really, really dumb accident.

His lip quivered again, but he wasn’t sure now if it was out of feeling mad, or sad…or guilty. Maybe he shouldn’t have yelled. Not wanting to think about that, still upset and embarrassed by the whole thing, he stood with a huff and started to pick up the mess they’d made. A few meat morsels were still scattered around, slimy and gross. And the bowl. And pieces of eggshell. T’pel and Kyrionth would be home soon, and he knew his brother didn’t like big messes. He’d hate it if he stepped on a piece of meat barefoot…

He’d have to explain what happened, too. Grrrr… Well, he was in the bathroom and it hatched and he didn’t impress. Plain and simple. Maybe he’d explain the whole thing later, after this other hurting feeling went away. If it went away.
