Benden is hit with a heavy heatwave in the last week of Month Six, and first week of Month Seven, which carries through to the end of the month. Their weather will begin to cool in the last week of the month, dropping to the low 30s.

Ista Isle is amused by the weaklings of Benden, but at least their heat is dry. Benden is muggy and riddled with heavy thunderstorms and downpours.

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.

-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.

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.

Malvayth gave one of her precious eggs another soft nudge to gently move it into a slightly more appealing position before she settled down proudly off to the side. Cazan gave her neck a soothing pat as she looked at the thirteen eggs, a much smaller clutch than the one that had just hatched. That didn't matter to Mal though, the gold was absolutely delighted and pleased with the results of winning her grand game. And soon the candidates would be coming to meet her precious babies!

Aradissicath was also there, so the younger gold had taken a cue from her and forbidden any firelizards from attending even though she adored them so much. Besides, as Cazan had mentioned, she might get distracted by their adorable antics and miss out on watching the candidates react as they met her babies! Malvayth puffed as regally as she could as the candidates started to arrive, giving them all tiny nods of her head in acknowledgement instead of her more usual boisterous greetings. She had to pretend to be more sophisticated after all, at least for her babies as they had their initial meetings! And it would set a good example for Lady and Sir as they watched from the stands, curled up with.

Cazan, for her part, did her best to emulate what she'd seen Rhaedalyn do for the last touching. She tried to look calm and warm and pleasant as she greeted the first batch of candidates as they walked in. She wasn't sure all of this was really as necessary as some of the dragonriders insisted, but she could understand that it was at least a tradition to uphold. Perhaps a boring tradition, but one that she wouldn't be able to escape just because she wanted to. She just had to wait through a few rounds of this and then she could get back to work. At least she had a comfortable chair to sit in so she didn't have to stand the entire time.

Candidates are divided into groups of twenty (20) who each visit the eggs for an hour, with a 15 minute gap between sessions. For the purpose of RP, all PC Candidates are in the same group, which is being threaded now.

This Touching commenced at 10am and these guys are the first group, meaning that no one else has Touched the eggs yet. There are thirteen eggs, one of which is gold. A minimum of one touch is required.

Candidates are expected to be polite and demure; the egg safety is paramount and anyone found to be goofing around will be removed. Firelizards are not allowed on the Sands during the Touching. Malvayth loves firelizards but is following Aradissicath's example. The same goes for humans that are not a part of the class and the instructors. Special permission can be granted if asked beforehand but even then, it won’t be many.

Eggs are approximately 4 to 5 feet in length, and approximately half to two-thirds that in width. They’re rather squat and roundish. Eggs are laid in a leathery state, much like an earthen snake egg. They slowly expand as they harden with the youngster growing within. When a candidate Touches an egg, they will find the shell to be hard, but kind of lumpy and bumpy in some spots, and smooth in others, depending on how the dragonet shifted during the hardening phase. All the eggs are roughly the same mottled greenish-tan, except for the gold egg, which has a bit of the metallic gold color in the shell, in addition to being larger than all the others.

Additionally, when the candidate’s hand connects with the shell, the dragonet within will reach out mentally and touch their mind. The response the dragonet has to each individual candidate is extremely varied and often considered private by the individuals. A negative response from a dragonet does not denote the inability to Impress the hatchling within! There have been several cases in the past – PC and NPC – when characters Impressed to a hatchling from an egg that they thought hated them.

If you want a reply from the egg, put an ooc note with a number 1-12 or Gold for the gold egg and I'll get one up.

It felt odd walking into the Fort Hatching Grounds that day for several reasons. The most important one being that B’kit, while healing, was still in rough shape alongside sweet Erebuth. Mylorah would have been happy spending all of her time keeping the pair company but she had a feeling J’shom wouldn’t appreciate her presence after a certain point and she knew she had obligations elsewhere. Like the Touching.

Another reason it was weird was because it was for her brother’s mate’s dragon’s first clutch. She was excited for Malvayth—and thought the dragon to be adorable with her regal pose and demure greeting—but Cazan’s accidental Impression made it all seem like an odd dream at times. Then there was the way she had told Fediletch that she would Stand with him despite her misgivings about having to become a healer of sorts if she did Impress. But she adored that boy and couldn’t make him sad and she wanted to support Cazan. Besides, Standing also meant she could protect Zoremet. She had been so anxious sitting in the crowd, watching him, hoping he paid enough attention to keep himself safe. Now she would be able to watch over him if needed.

But this was just the Touching. She was getting ahead of herself and needed to focus on the little but still just as important clutch. It really was hard not to be in a good mood despite her hummingbird’s injury thanks to another glance at Malvayth. She was so proud of her clutch—her prizes from what T’ryn explained. If she had to Impress in Fort, Mylorah would be fine with it being to one of Malvayth’s brood.

Since there were a few girls in her group, Mylorah figured she could wait to go to the gold. She honestly didn’t care which colour she Impressed to while she knew some girls only had their hopes pinned on the gold. So she wandered away from the gold and went to an egg she knew Malvayth would have lovingly placed just as much as she had done with the gold. Without hesitation, she rested her palm on the surface and closed her eyes as she opened up for the hopeful connection.


Egg 9, please!

Narinoa was torn on if he should Stand or not. It was a smaller clutch so one less Candidate wouldn’t be remarked upon, especially when he had been tending to Erebuth. But the blue was still his sweet self and encouraged him to still go through with the Touching and Hatching. Narinoa knew L’gan would also call for him if something was urgent enough and he trusted the healer and respected his skills enough to leave their patient in his care. It still felt selfish and he had yet to admit to anyone his indecision about dropping out of candidacy altogether. Perhaps it was time to focus solely on studying what they knew of dragon healing and assisting with further research. Then again, what if having his own dragon assisted him in learning more through their bond?

It was something he would reflect on further if he didn’t Impress at this Hatching. Being such a small clutch, the chances were pretty slim anyway and maybe he would discuss it with L’gan. For now, Narinoa smiled at the gold pair while Pipsqueak was told to keep Erebuth company so everyone was happy. He spotted the egg he wanted to go to first and almost chuckled at how superstitious he was becoming with this nonsense. Why was he so intent on that specific egg just because it caught his eye first? It looked almost identical to the others and was laid out in the same manner but there he was, walking directly for it and laying his hand on it a moment later.


Egg 3, please.

Quinvalis hung back as best as he could, though Zelana was in his group and he kept stealing glances at her to see if she would try to pester him again. Hopefully she would be too focused on her first Touching to pay him any attention and he could sneak out before she grabbed him to discuss their reactions or something. He was still terrified to be back on the Sands but Malvayth was his friend and her words of encouragement—and that strange kid’s insistence he not give up—had made him come back. Aradissicath’s Hatching went smoothly but that also could have been because he wasn’t there to create the bad luck.

He managed a small smile and wave to Malvayth and Cazan as he passed them despite his stomach feeling like it was turning inside out. As long as he didn’t vomit, Quinvalis was fine with the inner turmoil. Besides, this was the easy part. He only had to Touch a few eggs, be told he was worthless or not, and then go back to his little shared room and hide in bed for the rest of the day. The hard part was still roughly a week away. He could do this part.

So he did. With a deep inhale and slow exhale, Quinvalis finally moved to an egg that everyone else had ignored. He didn’t know why that egg had been overlooked but he felt connected to it since he tried his best to blend in and not be noticed as well. “Hi. I hope I’m not bothering you,” he whispered as he placed his hand on the warm shell, bracing for whatever was about to hit him.

She entered the hatching cavern with the rest of her group, eyeing the eggs and already zeroing in on what she was going to touch. Definitely the gold and probably one or more others. She knew her father would frown hard at her if he knew she was touching more than just the gold, but really what could he do with her all the way at the weyr? Absolutely nothing. The idea of thumbing her nose at propriety brought a grin to her face and she reached reflexively for Cupcake on her shoulder and grimaced when she remembered that the firelizards had been barred from the sands. Ah well.

She moved forward, going for the gold egg first, and winked at Malvayth as she laid her palm against its warm side. Happy thoughts and all that was all she allowed in her mind. Or thought she did. Who knew what the dragonet would be able to rifle through as it burst into the scene with pomp and circumstance?

Zoremet was feeling much better about this touching than he had the last one. The touching had ended on a high enough note though it had been mentally exhausting, and the hatching itself had been fine despite the trouble that had happened outside of it in the storm.

Still, this was his sister in law's dragon's first clutch! That meant it was even more special somehow and he nervously greeted Cazan and Malvayth as he walked by towards the eggs and looked them over. It was actually nice to have so few to pick from. He wasn't feeling restricted by any sort of choice, since there were only so many eggs available and so many of them. So he took his time, and settled on a nice looking egg off to the side.

Hopefully these eggs would be just as nice and lovely as the gold dragon who had produced them. Zory hadn't spent all that much time with Malvayth, but he had stopped by to meet T'ryn's new mate and introduce himself as yet another siblings of his, and the gold had been so friendly and bubbly and bright! He smiled and set his hand on the egg gently. "Hello."

__________________

Zahrah was quiet, watching Candidates fan out to touch eggs that caught their eye. She went for the gold first, smiling at Malvayth and gave her a polite dip of her head because well, she was polite. It was a beautiful egg, she thought as she walked around it. And for a first Flight, too. How wonderful!

She remembered selling two little dragon sculptures to a Fortian Goldrider, Sariel and one of them had definitely looked like Hatchling Malvayth. There had been a great deal of joy in that sale, she thought.

Hello, little one, she thought. It's a great honour to meet you. Soon you will be on the sands, ready to find your lifemate. That's pretty exciting.

Even though Fediletch hadn't impressed yet again, he was still just as upbeat and excited as ever to get to meet more babies. No matter how grumpy they might be in their shells, they were all very interesting so far! And more often than not they had been nice to him instead of mean like he'd heard some of the other candidates talking about.

He gave the goldrider and the dragons quick bows before he moved off towards the eggs, picking one right after another candidate changes his mind about it. He settled in next to the egg, took a deep breath and tried to remember to focus and think more calm and soothing thoughts. He didn't want to annoy the baby after all! Hopefully this would be the clutch for him, but he wasn't too worried. Not yet at least.

And Mylo was there as well which was exciting in and of itself. Fetch gave her a quick wave and a thumbs up before he turned his focus back to the egg and gently reached out to set his hand on it as he softly greeted the baby inside. Hopefully it would like him!

Egg 9 for Mylorah
A wave of stress hits you as you touch the egg. There's so much going on! Why are you here? What if you get chosen and end up trapped here forever? What if your friend never gets better? What if you're never chosen at all? There's so much that could go wrong, and even if things go right there's probably more to worry about there too. Are you paying enough attention to your loved ones? Maybe you should sing a song, that might help. The presence in the egg starts to softly hum, still stressed, but trying to focus on something positive for as long as you touch it.

Egg 3 for Narinoa
It's hard to notice at first, but you start to feel a presence quietly inspecting you before it brightens in surprise. It's pleased that you seem to enjoy helping people, especially dragons, though it expresses disappointment in some of your friendships and relationships. It doesn't bother to clarify anything more specific than that though before quietly withdrawing.

Egg 6 for Quinvalis
You are so lonely! Why are you here away from your family? You should be spending more time with them, go out and make more friends, play with the other children. Your mother loves you, she'd want you to be happy, and you get the feeling that the presence in this egg wants you to be happy as well. It tries to fuss and sooth, focusing on that loneliness and frightening it can be to open up. Things will look up once you find a good friend to confide in, it reassures, you don't have to hide from the world.

Gold Egg for August
No, no, no. This won't do at all. You aren't at all what the presence in this egg was expecting; something grander perhaps! More beautiful! More sophisticated! You get the feeling that the egg is quite disappointed as it roots around and tries to find anything of interest. It huffs as it seems to lazily dismiss you once it's done.

Egg 7 for Zoremet
It's all very exciting isn't it? The upcoming hatching. Soon the presence in the egg will come out into the world to meet someone new! Will it be you? Will you find your mate here? There's so much that could happen, some monumental changes in store for someone! Hopefully you're up for the task if it happens, though the presence isn't completely sure about you. After a few more moments of inspection it mentally nudges you away so that it can meet whoever comes next.

Gold Egg for Zahrah
The presence eagerly inspects you for a moment before you can feel a mental frown. You already have so much going on! You have a man you're already so devoted to, a child, would there be any room at all for the dragon in there? There's a lot that could happen after all, a lot of changes, and the egg seems quite worried you might not be up to the challenge.

Egg 4 for Fetch
Well, you certainly are boring. You pick things up, you put them down, and somehow people seem to still like you, but the presence in this egg seems clearly unimpressed. You aren't worth its time.

Corvilis was tired and cranky as he looked around. So many candidates, so few eggs. Was this one even worth his time? It was fathered by a brown, and he wasn't sure if that would have any real effect on the eggs at all. They were supposed to be good and strong dragons from what he remembered with his lessons, but it was still generally preferred and expected that a bronze would be the one to catch golds.

Still, at least the eggs looked healthy enough and the gold dragon mother certainly seemed to be proud of them all. It was a little hard to be dubious and doubtful, even for him, with how pleased she looked about it all. Too bad he had to wait for people to get done with eggs before he could give them a touch.

He took a few deep breaths and tried to focus again on happy thoughts. Maybe his dragon would still be here, and if it was, he wanted to start with his best foot forward. No more negative thoughts and doubt, just eager curiosity. He stepped up to an egg at the front as soon as it was vacated and set his hand gently on the shell.

What did dragon eggs feel like? Zelana supposed she would find out soon enough. She considered going to pester Quinvalis since he'd actually run away last time she'd talked to him, but that would probably be frowned upon here. She could wait to chat with him afterwards if he was feeling up to it, otherwise she could consult with Mylorah for this particularly difficult case.

She took her time meandering, waiting for candidates to clear out before she finally spotted a free egg. It would certainly do, she thought. Zelly spent a few moments just looking at it for a while, studying the strange bumps on its surface. How was this supposed to work, she wondered? She'd been told things, heard stories, but it certainly wasn't the same as experiencing it she thought.

"Hello, little egg. Hopefully we can be friends." But hopefully not at the same time, since she really didn't want to be stuck here and forced to go to the healer hall. Still, Mylo was here, Cazan was someone important to her boyfriend's family, so she did her best to think friendly but not too friendly thoughts as she set her hand down.

Rude.

August fought the urge to stick her tongue out at the egg as the dragonet inside quite simply dismissed her as inconsequential. She was interesting! She was whether the little thing inside thought she was or not. It wasn't her fault she didn't have much in the way of grand things, she wasn't born with a Lord Holder father. She huffed back at it as she took her hand away and moved. She did shoot it a quick glared before moving off. She wiggled her fingers at Fetch, waving a short hello to the other candidate as she found a new egg to have tear her apart like flimsy fabric.

She found one, settling her hand against its lumpy shell as she muttered just a little about rude golds and boring women.

He'd be heading home after this hatch. Provided, of course, that he didn't impress when this clutch finally cracked their shells. Landen was missing home, though he had no one really in the weyr to miss him, and wanted to see Benden again. Maybe he missed the cute little drudges there, he didn't know, but he missed it. Maybe next time he'd just stick to Benden instead of wandering the entire length of the continent in hopes of impressing. He strode into the sands with the rest of them, watching others touching and moving away before he figured out an egg to touch.

Landen was forever optimistic, not much bothered the man, and bumping into other candidates as he shuffled through the eggs wasn't a bother. Even if it was for some. He laid his hand on the warm, bumpy shell of one of the eggs and did what he was supposed to. Think happy thoughts right?

I know… I know! Mylorah mentally screamed in response to all of her worries being tossed back at her, causing her to be more anxious than she already was. She’d been trying to hide it from everyone, trying to keep her upbeat attitude and smile in place so everyone else could relax and not worry about her or a situation they were in. But there was just so much happening right now!

And was she paying enough attention to her loved ones?

She tried but what if someone was feeling neglected? What if she was giving one person too much attention? She would have to check in with everyone. Did she need to make a list to make sure no one was missed?

What? Singing?

Mylorah would never call herself talented when it came to singing but she enjoyed it with friends but now didn’t seem to be the right time for it—until she swore she heard humming. The hum of a dragon was so soothing and signalled a happy event. It was the direct opposite to their horrible keening when a fellow dragon died—the sound that could haunt her dreams and bring up memories at the worst times. But that humming was nice. Calming. It reminded her she was doing the best she could and there were many positives to focus on.

By the time she took her hand away from the shell, Mylorah was softly humming to herself. A small smile tugged at her lips as she walked over to the gold egg to stand in line behind a couple of girls, still humming a jovial song that always made her want to dance. When it was her turn to touch the gold egg, her steps had a bit more bounce to them as she pretended she was on the dance floor, focusing on good times with her loved ones.

Narinoa’s brows furrowed as he stepped away from the egg. He was pleased that his desire to help dragons was looked upon favourably but what was that about his friendships and relationships? Why did he feel like that dragonet was judging the people in his life and not him? What did that mean? Was there a chance they could be a match if not for the people in his life or would this dragon be the one to help him seek out the bad influences and help straighten him out?

He knew he needed some more straightening. While he wasn’t taking the sex klah nightly like he once had been, he was still playing around with some of the other kinds a bit too much. With his interest in focusing more on dragon healing taking a stronger hold on him, Narinoa figured he would have to kick the habit entirely to always keep a clear mind. Was that the meaning? Did he need to part ways with friends that he did the drugs with?

He’d have to think more on that later as well. For now, it wouldn’t hurt for one more egg. It was a small clutch and the group had more Candidates than eggs so he didn’t mind moving out of the way early so that others could get to more. He knew how thrilling it was for the first and even second Touching and there were a few new faces in his group that deserved to enjoy their time as much as they could.

So he moved over to a nearby egg that was just vacated with no lines and gently pressed his palm to its surface. Would this one point out flaws in him or his life as well? In a way, he welcomed it. He clearly needed to fix something in himself given the amount of times he had Stood and walked away alone.

He wasn’t hiding from the world.

Not really.

The world just didn’t need him front and centre.

Sometimes it probably didn’t need him at all.

Quinvalis removed his hand and turned sharply on his heel so he could walk swiftly away from that egg. He owed it to Malvayth to Touch more, to show her how proud he was of her babies as well but he couldn’t do it. He hated how easily the presence of the unborn dragonets could get into his mind and see so much so clearly. He’d just tell Malvayth that he already knew how wonderful her clutch was and that he wanted others to have a chance to meet as many as they could and know that as well.

He just didn’t want to be shown his flaws and how pathetic he was again. He also didn’t want to cry in front of everyone. Bad enough he had been injured multiple times in front of large crowds, including falling into unconsciousness and leaving quite a few people convinced he was dead. What he told Zarel seemed to be true—he did die that day or maybe even years before.

Maybe that was why some people and apparently unborn dragons seemed to think he was a kid. He would turn nineteen in twelve days but Quinvalis doubted many would guess that as his age with how young he looked and how he shied away from interacting with people his age or older. He was frozen in time and unable to find his place. But he wasn’t lonely and he had friends. More or less.

Knowing he wouldn’t be allowed to simply leave yet, Quinvalis moved over to the stands to wait for everyone else to finish. He wished he could leave because he knew at least two people out there would want to check up on him if they saw him sitting to the side. Maybe if he sprawled across the bench they wouldn’t notice him? The eggs were far more interesting so Quinvalis just sat as he was and decided to people-watch instead. Maybe he could guess if they had a good or bad reaction.

After the re-rundown on the rules and etiquette, Aederyn started her circulation among the clutch.

She watched the others meander among the eggs, oddly hesitant to place a hand on any of them. She’d come in more shy than usual. Aradissicath’s clutch was one thing: She was a senior queen. The queen. This was Malvayth’s clutch…She’d seen her Impress Cazan. She’d watched her learn to fly, and helped oil her. She remembered watching her hatchling hide shift and shed to reveal the molten gold of her adulthood. The gold who regularly hijacked Rudi for shenanigans with her own two firelizards…This was Cazan’s gold…the woman she’d been learning leather working from, and whom she’d been helping and serving as she grew with her pregnancy.

The sense of familiarity made this Touching seem so…strange. To be so familiar with the Gold and her rider, and yet this seemed so intimate, yet oddly formal…It really made her mind flip over itself. She smiled, bewildered, and finally crossed to one of the smaller eggs, off to one side, placing a hand on the smooth shell.

He shifted uncomfortably as he waited for the signal to enter the hatching sands. After coming away from another hatching unbonded once again, Madelan was becoming fairly certain that his greenrider wanted nothing more than a nice piece of ass instead of actually telling him the truth. But that couldn't be true right? He'd heard other dragonets during touchings, he knew he wasn't insane and there was no way he'd be able to hear them from the shell if he wasn't capable of impressing. Right? Fuck he had no idea how any of this actually work and L'tri couldn't explain it to him with any degree of certainty either.

Fuck.

He was muttering to himself as he entered the sand after all the rules and dos and don'ts were gone over again. He tried to keep his unease and sudden attack of self-doubt from his face as he sauntered to an egg. What did it matter to touch one of the shells when he was certain he'd be rejected again anyway? He sighed again and laid his palm against the smooth shell anyway.

Egg 1 for Corvilis
What are you doing? Why are you like this? You shouldn't fight people in any way, even just arguing! You certainly shouldn't be trying to hurt them by stealing things, even if it's from strangers! And why do you treat your friends like that?! The presence in the egg is clearly angry, but it backs down just as quickly as it started. Fighting isn't nice after all, and being mean isn't fun. There's no reason for it! It quickly retreats before you can try to think anything mean or angry back to it.

Egg 10 for Zelana
Is this what you want? Sure you were sent here, but you don't have to do something just because other people tell you to! You can be free, find your own direction and control your own fate! Granted it's hard to figure out what that fate should be and what direction you should go. Maybe if you took the time to sit down and think about things instead of chasing after one fun time after another you'll have a better time?

Egg 10 August
Well that certainly wasn't right! The presence in this egg is certain that you are a wonderful person, you have so much promise and potential! You just have to find someone to appreciate you and who cares what other rude eggs think? You just need to find better friends is all, don't let anyone else stop you from reaching your true potential.

Egg 7 Landen
There's a tiny poke around as you feel the egg sorting through your mind. You should probably work a bit harder, it thinks, but it's sure that you mean well enough. The presence in the egg admires your general confidence and your optimism, it just thinks you just need to take more responsibility, be more devoted to your duties.

Gold Egg for Mylorah
There's a sense of calm, as if the presence in this egg could tell you'd just had some sort of ordeal and wanted to help in some way. It's nice that you worry about your loved ones, because love is important! And the fact that you're so willing to share that love is great, it shows you know how to have some fun after all. But sometimes you have to maintain a cool and collected appearance. Act a little aloof! Just because you're willing to flirt doesn't mean everyone deserves you. It's fine to hold back a little.

Egg 2 for Narinoa
The presence inside of this egg is so proud of you for all that you've done to look inside of yourself. That you find inspiration in these little meetings is good! Don't worry about being bogged down by other people, you just need to learn to find what you want and strike at the right time. You have it in you, or at least this egg seems to think so. You just have to be patient with yourself while you figure things out.

Egg 12 for Aederyn
You have certainly been through a lot, but that's fine, because you're here now! There is an immense wave of joy that comes from the egg, soft and warm and full of encouragement. You've done very well for yourself, working in one craft, adapting to life in the Weyr and learning a new craft! You should embrace your independence and revel in it, go outside and spread your arms and spin beneath the open sky and just laugh and celebrate a little because you deserve it and the day is young.

Egg 11 for Madelan
You feel this egg regard you calmly and coolly, curious. Are you really so bothered that you haven't found your mate yet? Tough it out, you'll be fine. Anyone who doesn't pick you probably didn't deserve you to begin with. Just take a few breaths and keep trying, if you give up you're only disappointing yourself after all. You don't need anyone else.

____________

Zahrah laughs softly, nodding at the feeling. Just because there's so much going on in one's life doesn't mean a dragon won't fit. The people she loves know her love for her dragon will always be greater and they're okay with that. Her dragon will always come first, no matter how much love she has for anyone else. That's the way things work.

The man she loves knows this more than anyone. Her heart is big enough for everyone and it has to be because Pern itself fits in there, too, and that's all the people and dragons on it as well.

She moves on anyway, to another egg, leaving her thoughts with the gold to think on.

Gold
_________

Her first egg was, of course, the golden one and she spent a long while circling it, the flat of her hand trailing across its shell. She was in awe of its size and how pretty it was. It was tall, too, how beautiful it was and would be when the time came for its Hatching. Elloren's mind stretched out eagerly to see what the golden dragonet would make of her.

She wasn't a Lady Holder or fancy but she was tall and elegant when she remembered to be, when she wanted to be, but still felt too tall some days. It made her stand out. Did she want to stand out? Perhaps with the right lifemate to help her...yes. But she needed a little help to do that.She, like the dragonet, was still growing, still learning and she wanted so much to take flight.

There was something deeply unsettling about having someone else rummaging around her head, and Zelana had to back away for a few minutes to try and get a handle on what had just happened. Was this what she wanted? The thought of meeting a dragon and going on adventures did sound fun, but it was easy enough to ride somewhere with A'tay or another friend if she really wanted to. But she didn't really want to be here at this clutch did she? Being stuck having to learn how to be a healer seemed like the opposite of being free to have fun and do what she wanted.

She took had touched an egg, so she'd fulfilled at least that obligation at least. Zelly took a look around and spotted Quinvalis sitting off to the side and walked over to join him, not really saying much besides a soft hello as she sat down and watched the other candidates while she thought. What did she want besides a good time and lots of fun friends? It was hard to say, really. Hopefully no one would tease her for losing her nerve and sitting on the sidelines after touching only one egg.

Cazelarias had gotten special permission – apparently – to be allowed to sit in the stands behind where Cazan was, and watch what the Weyr was all worked up over. Touching. Typical Weyrs, and their need to shove their hands into everyone’s business. Even unhatched eggs! Shaking off the bizarre irritation that fired up, Cazelarias made himself comfortable on his chosen seat, keeping a wary eye on the great big gold dragon that could so easily eat them all without any real effort. He still didn’t believe that dragons wouldn’t hurt humans. After all, Whers were nasty critters who gave no fucks and he really didn’t see how something bigger couldn’t be meaner.

The fact that she insisted on talking to him didn’t help, and Cazelarias jumped mightily every time her voice swirled through his mind without invitation. Which he would never give her, because he didn’t want anyone swirling around in his mind. It was awfully invasive and he didn’t enjoy it at all. Cazelarias pouted to himself, picking at his thumbnail between his teeth as he watched. So far the dragon hadn’t spotted him – she appeared to be too busy watching the people swarming her eggs like ants on honey.

He watched, confused, as the Candidates would touch an egg, and then move away, their reactions various and sometimes extreme. Cazelarias blinked, confused. There was no point asking his sister what was going on, since she’d Impressed by accident, but he leaned forward anyway, and tapped her on the shoulder. “What’s happening?” he whispered, watching as one youngster seemed to get more than he wanted out of a single egg, and left the area. Others were milling around, taking turns with the gold egg. It was weird, how that one was coloured but the others weren’t.

Dragons were strange, scary creatures and he leaned away from Mal-whatshername, just to put that extra bit of space between them. Not that she was close to him to start with. But better more space than less!

She grinned at the small egg, lovingly running her hand over the shell. Thank you, little one. I will do exactly that. She gave it a soft pat, allowing that joy to warm her spirit. She had come a long way. She still had much to do and much to learn, and a long way yet to go, but she could allow herself to celebrate along the way. Reluctantly, she let her hand slip from the egg as she wandered among the little clutch some more.

Eyeing the one set aside, she moved toward it. After all, a gold was why so many women candidates were here. Of course, she’d be pleased with any dragon, but a gold…? She’d barely allowed herself the thought! Nodding to Malvayth, grinning at the beautiful queen, she approached and placed her hands on the egg, opposite another redhead. With a deep breath, she tried to let warm, welcoming thoughts override any thought of intimidation. The prospect of Impressing Gold certainly did intimidate her, but in a good way. Closing her eyes, she opened her mind to what the creature inside had to offer. Knowing there were many minds to search, and knowing the little gold in her shell might be tired, or overwhelmed, or flustered, she hoped to offer reassurance with her touch and mind.

Mylorah wasn’t sure if the gold just called her a whore or not but she did know she didn’t want to Impress to this one. The last thing she needed was K’dar in dragon form living in her head. She sighed and stepped away from the egg so the next girl could get to it and she could ponder on what she had felt. She hadn’t gotten very far in going over what had happened when Mylorah decided she didn’t care. She liked who she was and she had enough well-meaning friends and brothers telling her she was apparently too good for some people or they didn’t deserve her. She would be the judge of that and had no intentions of changing how she was with anyone.

Although both eggs had picked up on how worried and stressed she was but that had nothing to do with flirting… just more giving herself to everyone in a different way. But she wouldn’t change that either. Friends were there for each other and Mylorah wasn’t going to stop showing up for one because it was poorly timed. No one could schedule their crisis. She just had to be better at managing her time—that was all.

Should she do another egg or two? There was still plenty of time and some Candidates had already moved off so less waiting for an egg to free up as well. Maybe one more and then she’d also get out of the way so the newer Candidates could have their fun exploring the eggs. She knew this was tradition but it certainly didn’t guarantee she would Impress. But they were sometimes fun and this one was Malvayth and Cazan’s and Mylorah wanted to be able to tell the dragon more about her babies when she asked.

Circling back around the clutch, Mylorah eventually found one that seemed currently forgotten and settled in for the next judgement as she touched the shell.

Narinoa wanted to be patient but he only had two years left to Impress if that’s what he wanted. It used to be and it probably still was but he wanted to help dragons in general now. But maybe he needed his own dragon to do that. What if he didn’t Impress and the Weyrs saw that as a sign that he shouldn’t be near dragons at all and denied his help? He knew that didn’t make sense with how many non-riders were in the Weyrs, including healers that hadn’t accidentally Impressed along the way.

He walked several steps away from the egg, lost in thought. He then took a few steps away from the clutch where he crouched down, still thinking as he stared at the eggs. He’d already ended his path in the beastcraft by going to the Weyr and Narinoa wanted to stay where he was now and assist with dragons however he could. But what was the right path and did he even have a say in it? The dragon chose the rider after all. The only thing he could really do was continue Standing when he could and studying the remainder of the time. If he had a dragon by the time he aged out, then excellent! If he didn’t… he’d have to go from there.

He thought about going for another egg but still needed a few minutes to sort through everything as he didn’t want to bog down the next little guy he met. So he stayed crouched just off from the clutch, lazily watching the eggs and aware of people moving around but not giving them any mind.

It was nice to be appreciated, August thought to herself and to the dragonet she supposed. Maybe there was a little tear in her eye when the dragonet inside the egg she touched proclaimed her so full of potential. She'd needed that reassurance and could feel a little more bolstered. It was harsh when every gold egg she touched since coming to the weyr seemed to have an issue with her. Was she so base-born that a gold wouldn't have her? She didn't know but she appreciated this small eggs words. "Thank you," she murmured as she drifted away from that egg and moved to the next.

She settled her palm against the next egg, hands rough with the work she'd done for more than half her life and tried to take her mind off golds who thought she wasn't good enough and thought of the validation of the last egg instead.

"Where was the fun in that?" he asked with a chuckle at the dragonet's thoughts on duties and responsibilities. Landen was carefree, hedonistic, and absolutely not involved in duty at all. He wanted to have fun, run through life like the laziest canine. Trying hard meant he had to work hard and Landen wasn't altogether positive he wanted to work hard. "Of course I mean well," he said with a shake of his head, "I just want everyone to have a good time. Not such a big thing to ask." He was still chuckling a little when he moved to the next egg.

Laying his palm against the rough shell, Landen was still laughing inside at the idea of him working hard and doing his duty.

But does it always take so long? Mads thought to the egg. He wanted to be certain that this wasn't going to be an utter waste of his time, that he would come out of this entire process of touchings and hatchings and weyr life with a dragon to call his own. He had a hard time with failure, bringing him down a peg or two was never something that Madelan appreciated no matter what his parents might have insisted on. "Obviously they must not have been good enough," he told the egg with a false sense of bravado that he could pretend he felt. But he took the words to heart anyway and moved off.

Did he need anyone else but himself? He could do pretty much everything alone if he wanted to but it was a little less fun to do it without other people to join in on the ride. He reached the next egg and studied it a moment, would he touch it or would he do what a couple of the other candidates did and give up? Never a quitter. Madelan laid his palm on the warm shell.

Egg 12 for Zahrah
You feel the presence inside the egg brush against your mind. It seems cautious and uncertain. You seem confident enough, but what do you really know? It's hard to know anything for sure when it comes to people and dragons until you've actually done it. Hopefully things work out, the baby within worries but is optimistic, hopeful that things will work out fine in the end.

Gold Egg for Elloren
Curious... are you really as elegant as you think you are? Why do you cling so much to your physical body? If you can't handle yourself how can you handle a dragon? The egg doesn't seem intentionally malicious with its questions, just nosy and innocently asking questions because it doesn't have answers. After a barrage of more questions about yourself, where are you from? What do you do? It rambles these benign questions for a bit longer before you feel what could possibly be a yawn followed by a sleepy dismissal.

Gold Egg for Aederyn
There's just so much going on! So many visitors, so many people, so much change. You can feel it too, yes? So much hustle and bustle, so many expectations, so much to do, and it seems just overwhelming at times. Just try to make sure you take care of yourself at best you can and maybe things will calm down.

Egg 8 for Mylorah
You feel a soft purr. The presence in this egg seems to think you're quite fun, you know all these interesting people, you know all of the best news, maybe you should share that news a bit more! You could share it with this egg perhaps, tell it all the fun little secrets you know, go out and help it find more. All of those great friends and your warm willingness to make more is an excellent quality as far as the egg is concerned and it desires a piece of that. It seems a very easily distracted little egg though as it suddenly seems to lose interest and pulls away.

Egg 9 for August
You think you can hear music, perhaps some sort of delighted humming as the presence brushes against your mine. It is overjoyed to meet you, and just wants to babble on about music. Do you sing? Do you play? Do you enjoy just listening to it? Do you sing to your son when you see him? You should if you don't, everyone deserves some sort of music in their lives to get them through. The egg seems content to just softly hum to you for as long as you are there touching it.

Egg 6 for Landen
You should take things more seriously! What if just having fun leads to an accident? What if you get hurt? What if you hurt one of your friends or even a stranger? You should do your chores, young man, and make sure you take the time to take care of yourself too, and that doesn't mean just having fun! The presence in this egg is agitated and disappointed, but gives off the impression that it really wants what is best for you.

Egg 10 for Madelan
You feel an eager poke and prod. The presence in this egg seems interested, very interested, but cautious. It likes you, you have promise, potential, but it's not sure it could live up to your expectations and desires. It's not giving up to take your time to fall back and regroup and reconsider your options or to even take a rest. You should definitely not lose hope though. At least this egg seems to believe in you.
