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!

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!)

Black, short
Fit, stocky
General Description:
O'in looks like the friendly face that you could talk to about anything, because he is. On the short end of tall, and the thinner end of solid, he would appear unobtrusive if it weren't for the over-eager smile and bright curiosity that assaults anyone who makes eye-contact. His round face is crowned by a mop of black hair he keeps cropped short, and he has large, steady hands that look like they're meant for work, but if someone looked too hard they might notice how soft and pink and uncalloused those hands are.

General Dressing Style:
O'in lacks any definitive style, but he tries and is always clean and groomed. If he had his way, someone else (with excellent taste) would pick his outfits out for him and save him the anxiety.
Liam Jay Ward
Being bored.
Being alone.
Making decisions.
A bad meal.
Habits & Mannerisms:
Fidgets constantly, and cannot sit still. Hums while he works. Has his own theme music.
General Personality:
O'in is a social butterfly who wants to be in the center of the action, no matter what it is, and regardless of how much he'll regret it later. This makes him a great friend, as he is loyal to a fault, compassionate, charitable, and down for whatever scale-brained idea that comes along.

He is also gullible and quite easily taken advantage of through his need to please, however. O'in tends to adopt the views of the people he's interacting with, especially those closest to him, and will turn a blind eye to the faults of those people even if they compromise his own values. He hates confrontation, and his go-to conflict resolution strategies are avoidance and deflection.

When he's excited, he can often be overbearing. And loud. In public.

Father: (b. 694, d. 720, plague) D'ban, brown rider

Mother: (b. 700, d. 719, child birth) Olissa, healer apprentice
Half-sister: (b. 717) Kossama, healer sr. apprentice
O'in cannot keep secrets, even his own.
His is an open book.
Important History:
O'in's childhood is murky and filled with sad stories he doesn't remember. He never met his parents, his mother having died giving birth to him and his father succumbing to the plague that ravaged dragon kind. All he knows of them come from the stories his older half-sister, Kossama, has told him.

His mother, Olissa, had been a healer. She fell in love with a gallant bronze rider, and when the plague drove him south, she'd refused to be parted from him. They went together, her pregnant, with a small group of fellow riders. Olissa vowed to use every skill her craft had lent her to help however she could.

But fate is cruel and it came swift. Her bronzerider died before he ever met his daughter, and Kossama always had to stop at telling this part.

Olissa was skilled as she was kind. Another from their group, a brown rider, fell for her and provided as best he could for her and her young child. It was not long before he gave her another, at the greatest cost. Here, also, Kossama would stop the telling, except to say that the brown rider disappeared with his grief.

Kossama's story was secondhand, though. Neither sibling knew their parents. On cruel days when Obennin was incessant, Kossama would chide him that his father and his beast still ran mindless through the jungle, betting both were little more than monsters now. And Obennin would cry, wailing that at least he didn't know for certain his father was dead.

The shared trauma bonded them more than it broke them, though. Through hazy memory, both had to imagine it was the shreds of kindness in the riders left living who had come south with their parents that guided them eventually to Katila. In that haphazard Weyr, they found a haphazard childhood. They supped on sparse charity and the desperation of busy kitchens and dirty corners that couldn't afford to care about the size or skill of the hands that touched them.

Obennin followed his sister's lead unquestioningly. Kossama always had a plan. She made sure they had food enough not to starve. She found them the work that kept them in the good graces of the Weyr. She was the one that said they should be dragon riders, called it their birthright, and said it loud enough that everyone accepted them as the weyrbrats they were. She was the one that said "Telgar" when they were able to come back north. She dragged Ben out onto those hot sands for turns and turns, waiting to Impress. She was always in charge.

Until she wasn't.

Until she revealed to Obennin how much time she'd been spending in the infirmaries, learning from a pretty young man with steady hands. Until she'd decided that her calling was really to go to Fort, to Healer Hall, in the footsteps of their mother. Of course, Obennin should stay. She'd be bound to the craft, would have no time, and the Hall would have no space. Of course, Obennin was still meant to be a dragon rider, and he shouldn't give up the place he had in Telgar, the friends he'd made. And of course Kossama was coming back.

But four turns on, Kossama was not back, and Obennin was standing those hot sands alone growing older than most of the group standing with him, and bored. He was fretting about his future.

Sure that he was destined to die listless, right there on the Hatching Sands with no one to notice amidst all the excitement (and on the verge of expressing this thought aloud), all of O'in's anxiety coagulated, then evaporated into a simple, "Oh."

In memory, it is the nonchalance of Cunaguaroth's sudden, psychic request for food that sticks with the blue rider.

Vibrant, tropical blue hide that fades to turquoise on throat, forelegs, and underside of tail. Dark blue rosettes along back and flank.
Sultry, raspy, and feral.
Curious and excitable. Very much like his rider, he likes to be at the center of things. Unlike his rider, Cuna is very competitive and not nearly as averse to confrontation. He will often say and do things that embarrass O'in--often to bronze, brown, and fellow blue dragons and their riders--and likes to boss him around.
Loves shredding things.
Prances through the forest.
Squawks when he's irritated.
Likes to tell O'in what he should be doing or saying.
