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!

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!

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!)

General Description:
August is of a medium height standing around 5’3” tall and is curvy. She has a classic hourglass figure and dark hair. Her hair is worn long or short whatever suits her mood at the time. Her hair tends to be a dark brunette that occasionally bleaches out to a reddish hue in the sun. She has a wide generous mouth that smiles often and dark brown eyes. Her cheeks and well-shaped nose are splattered with a riot of freckles. Her nose is slender and comes to a slight point at the tip, sitting well between those sharp cheekbones, neither crooked or bent. Her chin tells of the stubborn nature the woman possesses and it is a bit sharp.

She has a subtle strength from working with the wood of her craft. Her arms are trim and her back is strong. She has a gentle smell of sawdust and dirt that she’s told is never overpowering. Her elegant hands are covered in the nicks and scars of her craft. Though she is proud of her craft her hands embarrass her and she will often hide them from other people's sight.
General Dressing Style:
Comfortable and easy, August wears what fits and what is going to be comfortable while she works.

General Personality:
August is a woman who loves life and everyone in it, she’ll make no excuses for it. She has a fondness for children and crotchety old curmudgeons. She does everything with her whole heart, from her woodcraft to her lovers, she gives her all for the time it takes. She has a stubborn streak a mile wide, once she sets her mind to something she rarely deviates. She doesn’t mind if someone tries to change her mind and if the argument is good she just might let it happen. She can be quite hard-headed and she has no problem slapping someone with a chunk of wood. She is artistic and this can be seen in the little whittles of wood she has around her. She loves what she does and she loves getting her hands filthy. She doesn’t mind the splinters, the dirt or the saw dust, all that matters is the beauty that comes at the end.

August is a tough chick, she doesn’t let much get her down and it takes a lot more than a few words to prick her skin. Her father taught her the value of hard work and August is never far from the idea that as long as she works hard enough, she’ll get far enough. She has a strong sense of morality, her sense of what is right and what is wrong is somewhat black and white. On a subconscious level, August knows that there is a grey area but she chooses not to see it or use it. For someone as stubborn and independent as she is, August is rather idealistic and has the belief that as long as people do what is right and good, everything will turn out the way it’s meant.

Important History:
716 & 0: Birth
720 & 4: The birth of her youngest brother. He'd become her biggest fan and biggest supporter.
726 & 10: Started widdling small things behind her father's back. She showed an aptitude with carving and making things in wood.
728 & 12: Rust shows her father a toy she made, the man was both proud and irritated. He'd thought one of his other sons had done it but Rust told him August had. Her father started paying more attention to her.
732 & 16: After a convincing argument from her brother, August decided to join him in an apprenticeship. Her father was dubious but let it happen. Rust and August were his only children who showed an interest in wood. Might as well entertain the idea.
734 & 18: August moved quickly through apprenticeship, going from the junior position to senior rather quickly. She met Mederick during this time and fell rather hard for the journeyman. They fell in love hard and into each other's beds quickly. August becomes pregnant.
735 & 19: The birth of her son Audrick. August adores the dark-haired little boy with his father's laughing eyes. They were wed not long after his birth. And they were happy for a short period of time.
738 & 22: An illness swept through, fever and coughs that were painful. August pulled through but Mederick did not. Married less than three turns and a widow. August was devastated and it was only her son and her craft that got her through it. Her father told her to find someone else, that she'd forget the man quick enough but August couldn't see such a thing.
739 & 23: Grief was what she'd insist had her agreeing, but August knew it was a little bit of grief and a lot of independence that had her saying yes when a chance meeting with R'kar of blue Brixith had her searched and asked. Fort Weyr wasn't that far away, close enough that August could visit when she needed and her family was full of tears when she left to take a chance on a new future. Her father wouldn't let her take Audrick with her and she didn't force the issue. She'd seem him when she wanted, R'kar had promised.
740 & 24: So far August has only stood for a few clutches outside Fort. She has not impressed yet. She sees her son when she can and has quite decided that she is exactly where she needs to be. She still practices her craft, even here at the weyr, but it isn't the very end of all she thinks now. Now she has the opportunity to become something more and so she shall.

Clutch Details:
Gold Iliyith x Bronze Rhezalth at Benden Weyr on the 07.05.742 [Clutch Page] Name Inspiration: Varanus komodoensis (Komodo Dragon)
Front heavy are the first words to come to mind, Varanuth's chest and forelimbs are bulky and strong in a way reminiscent of fighting dogs and make it quite easy for her to get into trouble digging holes. Her hide is a vibrant citrusy gold with pale creamy blotches in her wing sails. The tip of her tail turns to a vibrant orange while the tip of her muzzle is almost muddy brown.
As she ages her musculature continues to develop until she's no longer a front-loaded weyrling. Sturdy and powerfully built, Varanuth is not a soft dragon. While not the largest of the golds, her physique gives her a chiseled, almost statuesque appearance that makes her seem especially daunting even when she's covered in mud or dirt.

Her adult hide keeps the golden citrus of her youth as a base, though the points of her limbs, tail, and wings are a warmer orange. Over her back, belly, and shoulders she has a dusting of pale cream. The tip of her snout darkens to a reddish tone, and a pale creamy blaze covers the front of her face above it that extends to her eyebrow ridges.
Varanuth's voice is deep and a touch raspy, cultured and full. It implies both a sense of old wisdom and finality along with a feeling that the gold is not one to bend to childish pleading.
"She knows she's the queen of the roost; she's confident, encouraging of her rider, and doesn't see anyone or anything else as a potential predator. With all of that self assuredness, Varanuth is not afraid to be playful or silly because who cares if others think less of her when they see? They're wrong. She is a curious dragon who enjoys exploring objects ranging in size from small toys to large wagons with a deft touch and curl of her tail.

While she thinks so highly of herself, Varanuth also thinks highly of others, especially her rider. She is supportive and actively encourages things that she thinks would help someone grow. Her high opinion of others and her optimism can make her seem naive, but she believes that she can just handle when things don't go as well as she expects."
Digging: There is just something delightful about digging and then wallowing in the cool earth. It feels good under her claws, it feels good against her hide, it feels cozy in the end and it's fun to get there!
Making a Mess: It's just so viscerally satisfying to take a herdbeast, shake it, and then rip it apart until your maw is covered. Grabbing onto things and shredding them is also fun. The most fun? Watching others clean up after you.
Soaking: Not necessarily swimming (though that is also nice) but just soaking and relaxing is a treat and Varanuth loves to nap with only her chin propped up out of the water.

Being Stifled: Curiosity is meant to be indulged! She should be allowed to poke things!
Being forced to choose/giving up on a good thing: Varanuth hates being forced to choose between two good things, especially since it means she has to give up something she wants. She's a bit of a greedy dragon who would love to have both options instead.
Interruptions: When she gets in the zone poking about and exploring she would much rather take her time and finish her examinations before moving on.

Supportive: Varanuth is very supportive of her rider and those they care about, trying to offer encouragement when she thinks it would help, or even just making an effort to just listen if she thinks that is what is needed.
Confident, unafraid of change: She is steady in the face of change, eager to face it head-on as an opportunity to learn and grow and improve.
Optimistic: She tends to think the best of people and situations and is good at finding the silver lining around every cloud.

Nosy: She especially is fond of nosing in on crafters or really anyone doing anything with their hands. What are they doing? How? Why? If she could just get a closer look and maybe poke at it with her tail...
Hoarder/Messy: In addition to just enjoying activities that make her especially messy, she enjoys collecting things and hates the thought of getting rid of something.
Naive/Gullible: Why would people lie? Even if they do, she's sure she can handle wherever that leads to.
