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.

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.

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.

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 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.

B’jin had been to his share of infirmaries. It came with the territory, what with being a greenrider. Especially one that flew as often as Larrikith did. Some riders were just mean and sometimes accidents happened. He hadn’t been as injured since Larrikith and Ayyonth mated, but awkward locations still caused bruises and the occasional dramatic flair, like a dislocated shoulder. Nothing extreme, just the usual highs and lows of being a greenrider. Then of course, there were all the years B’jin had been involved with N’mall, and the routine mess the brownrider had made of him. Less fun than disaster flights, if such could be called fun, but it had happened. B’jin had had broken bones aplenty, and more than his share of concussions. But none of that quite added up to the events of that morning.

Eyes fluttering open, B’jin shifted uncomfortably, a hand raising to flutter around his bandaged throat. The aching pain caused tears to spring to his eyes, and B’jin wanted nothing so much as to make an agonised sound, but even swallowing and breathing was painful, and B’jin shifted again in the bed, angling to sit up as he tried to express his anxiety, hands both fluttering around his throat and in front of him as wild eyes stared around the room, taking several long moments before the familiar faces that came into view actually took hold. R’nd taking one hand calmed him notably, and B’jin breathed out strongly through his nose, still looking stressed.

Easy, love. You’re okay. Larrikith said gently, from where she was curled up not far away with Ayyonth, feeling her own body relax now that B’jin was awake and seemed to be okay, even if he was stressing out. Its noon, Larrikith continued, including R’nd in her conversation with B’jin, but leaving out anyone else. R’nd made sure they didn’t give you numbweed, though they did seem confused. Her tone was quirky, like she was smirking. Probably think R’nd is a sadist now. B’jin rolled his eyes, knowing Larrikith had probably been shrieking at anyone who went near him with numbweed anyway. She wasn’t shy about shoving her mental nose into the minds of people.

He wants to know what happened. Larrikith said softly to R’nd, shifting against Ayyonth uncomfortably. And something for the pain. She didn’t bother to add that he wanted something that wasn’t fellis, since that was prone to drowsiness and B’jin didn’t want to sleep – but his wants weren’t really what Larrikith cared about at that moment. Just like she didn’t voice his want for a glass of wine. He’d just have to cope without his beloved booze for a little while longer.

R'nd sat in an uncomfortable chair beside B'jin's equally uncomfortable bed. At least it looked like it would be horribly uncomfortable and he knew he'd know for sure when his mate woke up and complained about it. B'jin was still a Harper of luxury despite it all and his pampered and cute behind would not be pleased with an infirmary bed. But at least he was alive while in it. It had been close there early on and R'nd had been yelling at B'jin to stay alive and yelled at Larrikith to do the same and help keep their greenrider with them.

Now they were all sitting in silence with Ayyonth sometimes making him tell a story from his childhood to keep him distracted. Larrikith was invited in so she could listen to the story R'nd was too tired to voice out loud to help keep her just as distracted. But it was hard to focus on it when his mind kept drifting back to how similar this was to T'ryn nearly dying and hearing about Casa. He thought he only had to worry about his children that Impressed bronze and gold but now he had his fairly innocent mate clinging to life. Was it because B'jin had a knack for Searching shiny Candidates? Was it because he was on his way to visit the goldrider that had fallen to her death? Either way, R'nd was a bundle of anxiety and wished he was better at strategy so he could formulate a plan to keep all his loved ones safe.

When B'jin started to rouse, it startled R'nd and he held his breath, silently hoping his mate would drift back into sleep. Healers assured him B'jin would be fine but sleep was best for him to help get through the pain but of course no one told the stubborn greenrider that and B'jin awoke, looking frantic as things settled in. R'nd took one of B'jin's hands and held it tightly, relieved that Larrikith was able to make jokes and that B'jin wasn't panicking as much as he probably should have been. But why did he have to be the one to explain what happened?

A dose of fellis was left on the table in case B'jin woke early and required more for the pain which R'nd softly explained as he helped his mate drink it back. It took a little coaxing and it was done in slow and small sips to try to make swallowing some easier before the task was done and R'nd was helping B'jin to get comfortable before going into his explanation.

"You were on your way to visit with Nerili when you were attacked and... he slit your throat, love. It was done in haste from what the Healers have said but I can't recall all of the details as I was a bit distraught." There was so much blood and B'jin was so pale and it didn't seem like a lot of confidence in the room for survival. He sighed, and added in the other bit of bad news, "Nerili was found dead as well. It's unclear if she jumped or was pushed from her ledge but it seems likely she was pushed given everything going on and you being attacked near her weyr."

B’jin grimaced when the fellis was offered to him, and tried to refuse it, but that hurt and in the end it hurt less to slowly sip at the gross drink than it did to try dodging it – and probably end up wearing it. Sighing through his nose, B’jin did his best to drink all the fellis, but it wasn’t easy; he couldn’t remember the last time his throat had been so sore. The hand not being held by R’nd fluttered anxiously around the bandages on his throat, tentatively exploring the edges of the bandage before ghosting his fingers across the centre of the wrapping, under which he could feel the cut happened to be.

Someone… slit my throat? B’jin exclaimed to Larrikith, eyes wide as he looked up at R’nd from his reclaimed position in the bed, shifting around a bit and reclaiming R’nd’s hand. He squeezed it tightly, raising both their hands to press his cheek against the back of his mate’s, and he mouthed ‘Sorry’, at R’nd. Trying to speak hurt too much, so he didn’t try at all. Mouthing was easier, at least with the single and simple words. Eyebrows furrowed as R’nd finished speaking, B’jin shook his head just slightly, grimacing when even that hurt, and pursed his lips. ‘Why’ he mouthed, fluttering his free hand again, but even he wasn’t sure if he was asking about his own attack, or the apparent attack upon Nerili.

Poor Nerili, B’jin thought sadly to Larrikith, curling up a little as the fellis warmed him from the stomach and made him weary. Despite the growing need to fall asleep, B’jin focused carefully on R’nd, folding his free hand under his cheek and yawning. Nerili had been one of B’jin’s favourite Searches; she had been a sweet young woman who took well to Weyrlife and had made B’jin proud with her achievements and her dragon had been a sweetheart. B’jin brought R’nd’s hand back to his lips, pressing another affectionate kiss to it as he fought off the urge to fall back into blissful sleep. He didn’t want to sleep, damnit.

R’nd could feel his heart breaking further with each little reaction B’jin gave. His mate was normally so lively and expressive that seeing him struggle not to speak made him wish there was more he could do besides hold a hand. And he hadn’t even told B’jin the worst part; that he most likely will never speak again. R’nd may have shut down during most of the drama of saving the greenrider and the explanations that followed but he was holding onto the slim chance that perhaps the healers were wrong and in a month he’d have his chatty mate back, smiling and singing.

“Stop fighting the sleep,” R’nd urged softly, brushing back B’jin’s hair, silently soothing the man with simple and normal gestures. “You shouldn’t even be awake right now. I’m glad you are since it’s easing my fears but the healers said you’d be in too much pain for a bit yet.” After all, his neck had been deeply cut and was now stitched back together. Thankfully he hadn’t had a clear view of the before, during, or after. R’nd wasn’t sure he could handle the sight. But the amount of blood that he had seen would haunt him for quite a while.

“I haven’t sent word to your children or sister yet. I wanted to wait until you were awake and prepared for them.” R’nd also didn’t want to send the wrong letter. He couldn’t handle telling them B’jin was fine and have them arrive to find that B’jin most certainly wasn’t or had passed. But he also didn’t want to make it sound dire if it wasn’t, either. But he’d have to send word soon before the rumours spread and made things worse. He didn’t need N’mor’s soul-searing gaze on him because word wasn’t personally sent.

“I can take care of that while you sleep. T’ryn offered to personally tell N’mor and to pick up Amorandii when you want visitors but I told him he needs to rest as well. He was winded just walking in here.” His stubborn and caring son needed to look after himself sometimes as well. R’nd was actually surprised he left Cazan for even the short visit but R’nd appreciated it.

“Are you comfortable? Do you need more pillows or… anything?” R’nd was doing his best to keep it together for B’jin. He knew how much his mate relied on him, used him as the steady presence that was always there and calm. He was an absolute mess on the inside and barely keeping the tears in but he’d perform an entire musical act with a smile right then if it meant B’jin was relaxed and not focused on his pain or fears.

B’jin glared half heartedly at R’nd, pouting at being told off for fighting the urge to sleep, but a smile lingered on the corners of his lips, taking away any seriousness the expression might otherwise have portrayed. He curled tighter into the bed; R’nd was right that it wasn’t very comfortable, but B’jin was in so much pain that the uncomfortableness of the bed was far outweighed. Instead, the blanket felt comforting as it was wrapped around him, and the love he felt from the bluerider was soothing.

When R’nd brought up his children and sister, B’jin’s nose scrunched up in sympathy for R’nd; he wouldn’t want to be in the bluerider’s position if their roles were reversed. Of course, B’jin only had two children and one sister. R’nd might have only had one sister to send word to, but by the time B’jin had contacted all his offspring, the bluerider probably would have been healed of whatever ailed him. That made B’jin smirk sleepily, and he rolled his eyes lightly, the action mostly hidden behind drooping lids. R’nd would do what was best, he had no doubt. He was glad to hear that T’ryn was feeling well enough to try and be helpful, even if it wasn’t helpful to his own full recovery. Sounded like R’nd’s boy.

The offer for anything more had B’jin puckering his lips playfully, smiling into the chaste kiss he was given and gently stroking the side of R’nd’s face. Everything would be fine. A couple days – a week at most – and B’jin had no doubt he would be back to normal. He hd nothing in his experience – and no word from the Healers at that point – to think otherwise; it never occurred to him that his voice might be gone for longer than it took his throat to stop hurting and since most flus only lasted a week or so, he didn’t expect the current injury to take any longer to heal. After all, it hurt like a bitch, but so did broken bones and they didn’t change his whole life.

Smiling wistfully, B’jin mouthed ‘love you’ at R’nd, before obediently letting sleep claim him once more. Everything would be fine.
