Latest Updates

2023/08/04 Hello loves! While I haven't been writing, I have been working on updating some issues that have been hanging around on the layout! The Character change box is now at the bottom of the page, beside the up/down arrows! Green and Gold dragon flight dates have been shifted to the bottom of the page, where the (useless!) discord widget was located. Where the dragon flights were in the header, is now replaced by a Monthly Event box! This will be updated at the start of each month, with a fun mini-event you can take part in, if you want to! Thistle!

Monthly Event
Details: Link

Welcome to the Month of Lovetm! This month's Monthly Event is all about Romance, whether it is asking someone out on a date, or getting sweaty between the sheets! Anything and everything counts, if it even looks sideways like it could be related to Valentine Day -- including lover's spats, or breaking up, Flights Wins (or Flight Losses!). Honestly, this month has a huge opportunity for interpertation, so go wild!

Details: Link

Ahh, the fresh snow, the crisp air, the naked trees... welcome to Winter! Or, just the Colder Months for those in the more Northern Weyrs, while Ista is just... not as hot. But it is time to enjoy the end of the Turn, so folks should get together, spend some time gossiping, and drinking Hot Chocolate (alcohol and marshmallows opional)... does Pern even have marshmallows????? (they do now!)

Details: Link

Feel like bitching? Wanna take part in a brawl? Or bet on someone? Take part in Brawls and Bitching this month! Boo-yeah!

Michelle Dockery
Full Name:
Date of Birth:
01.01.714 - (31 years old)
Place of Birth:
Southern Boll Hold
Searched By:
Primary Home:
Benden Weyr
Searched Date:
Eye Colour:
Brown, trusting
Hair Colour:
Deep brown
General Description:
Slender and willowy figure, not given to sloth. She pays strict attention to what she eats and runs frequently to keep herself in shape. She is very conscious of impressions, working hard to keep herself tidy and refined as befits her rank.

She has an oval face, aristocratic bone structure (with cheekbones you could cut yourself on), expressive brows, and a long Grecian nose. Usually given to lofty facial expressions, she does occasionally slip and let herself grin.

Expressive brows she keeps carefully shaped and delicate. Her hair is deep brown with a hint of wave to it. Was worn longer when she Impressed but in recent years she has cut it to chin length to make it more manageable.
General Dressing Style:
She prefers crisp clothes of fine woven or soft fabrics, though she keeps around several old shirts and a pair of trousers she filched from a friend for days she needs a little comfort.
Michelle Dockery
Soft, fine fabrics: She always loved to sneak a touch of the fine fabrics when visiting her father, and now she can actually make a dress from them for herself for special occasions. She loves an excuse to wear her finer clothes.
Dexterity: Through years of weavercraft training, she is very good at delicate handwork or more fiddly aspects of harness repair.
Tenacity: She doesn’t quickly or easily abandon an idea or a person once she has a plan.
Sloppy mending: If you’re older than 5 there is simply no excuse to have jagged or larger stitches, and if she catches you mangling her clothes there will be hell to pay
Idleness: Especially in others, when it's clear they're shirking responsibilities, but she also can't stand not having something to do herself.
Opinionated: She sometimes forms opinions too quickly and can be stubborn to convince.
Perfectionist: Get a job done right or do it again. When she feels others aren't as meticulous, she'll call them out on it, which sometimes results in friction. It also leads to a tendency to obsess over sometimes insignificant details.
Habits & Mannerisms:
She’s prone to exasperated sighs and eye rolls and she can’t stand to have her hands idle, whether she’s spinning or just fidgeting with a necklace.
General Personality:
A little too focused on what others think of her, though it usually comes out as snobbery or exasperation. She’s very opinionated, though she does her best to bite her tongue when she thinks it matters. She’s used to hiding her sexuality in the crafthall, so coming to the Weyr was a revelation. She’s still circumspect, knowing that as a goldrider there are Expectations, but she’s also enjoying her newfound freedoms. She values discretion in her partners and has been carefully cultivating connections.

Father: Heylin, b.YYY, d.YYY
Rank: Master-rank Weaver
Mother: Leanna , b.YYY, d.YYY
Rank:. n/a
Past Lovers/Partners: Vondal (NPC), husband, deceased- when she was 18
Current Lovers/Partners: Tala
Vondlyn - son born after Iliyith’s first flight in 738, father is N'mor of bronze Rhezalth. She only introduced them after Iliyith's flight in 740, after reassessing N'mor's maturity.
Important History:
730 & 16 turns: Helyna marries Vondal, a Jr. Journeyman at the Weavercraft hall and a dear friend of several years. It helps them both hide their true preferences behind a veil of respectability.
731 & 17 turns: Vondal dies while on circuit and she is devastated at the loss of her friend. A few other marriage offers come her way, but she turns them all down with the excuse of grief and focuses on her craft instead to attempt apprenticeship.
732 & 18 turns: Helyna applies and is accepted as a Jr. Apprentice to the craft, throwing herself into work to drown out her pain. Her wit becomes sharper and more scathing than it had been without him around to temper it, and she is less concerned now with seeming opinionated or haughty.
735 & 21 turns: Helyna is Searched, and has mixed feelings about leaving the crafthall. She has made something of herself there in recent years, but also finds memories around every corner. At the same time, everyone has heard the rumors about dragonriders, and she is curious if the “loose morality” of the Weyr life is actually true; anything is better than keeping up pretenses.
736 & 22 turns: Helyna Impresses gold Iliyith at the Fragmented Memories clutch in Fort.
738 & 24 turns: Iliyith’s first flight brings along some unexpected baggage, but she can’t bring herself to between like some of the others advise. She’s not an involved mother, but her son does make her smile when she visits him in the creche.
739 & 25 turns: Fires break out at Ista and it rattles her careful veneer of control. To get that feeling back she throws herself into organization, helping to arrange supplies of bandages and other essentials, but she hates it when she's assigned to help uncover victims. The sight of the burns unnerves her and it feels like it takes months to get rid of the smell of smoke once everything is finally extinguished.
740 & 26 turns: Helyna is appalled by the lack of control surrounding Thallyath's maiden flight. That a blue should be able to fly a gold is simply ridiculous, and she's horrified when she hears rumors about the disastrous Touching--let alone the Hatching. When it's announced that Casa will be taking over as Ista's Weyrwoman when Benden reopens, Helyna is furious. Still, she manages to bite her tongue, knowing that loose talk could utterly ruin the already tenuous reputation of the Weyrs in the wake of the return North. Every scrap of respect is necessary if Thread actually does come back and they truly will need to rely on the Holds and Crafts.
741 & 27 Turns: Iliyith's second clutch hatches and the pair have somewhat redeemed themselves in the Weyrleaders' eyes

Education Details: The daughter of a master-rank Weaver and his craft-bred wife, she learned aspects of the craft from a young age, helping to prepare common pigments and learning to spin as soon as she could hold a spindle. She learned tatting from her husband, a journeyman, and became good enough to apply for a junior apprenticeship, but her plans were derailed by his death and her Search a year later.

Adult Stats
38’ foot length, 17’ foot tall, with a 57’ foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Aradissicath x Xyreith at Fort Weyr on the 12.12.736 [Clutch Page]
Extremely pale gold, hardly any markings
Dark “pointing” on her limbs and tail and her wing-sails
Sweet and disarmingly charming
She’s a little more relaxed than her rider, less apt to nit-pick everything others say and do as long as they’re treated with the appropriate respect. She does prefer directness and wonders why her rider bothers to hide her opinions sometimes.
She huffs and fusses when she feels like people are being evasive or rude.
