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.

Fort 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.

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!

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.

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.

Once again Gangleri was delighted to find that his brother was somewhat decent at cooking breakfast, or at least eggs. He'd had time to think things over as he watched Quilriana finally truly relax now that her son had Impressed. Quinvalis, or N'lis now, had been on her mind a lot and now that he had his own dragon and was safe from future baby maulings (he hoped), she was starting to be able to enjoy her little vacation. It was much deserved from everything that the Harper saw, after all. She always worked so hard at the tavern, had never complained about it, was always rather kind even when she had to be firm with a drunkard, and he had the distinct feeling that the rest of her family who ran the tavern didn't appreciate her as much as she deserved.

So why did it have to end? Gangleri took another sip of his klah and nodded. It seemed reasonable enough. It wasn't like he had anyone else in his life to try and spoil. Sure she had her dragonrider, but he was probably understandably busy, and considering his own past... well he couldn't point any fingers or make any suggestions for how they lived their lives in that regard. He made his way into his office where Quilriana was curled up on his couch reading a book and sat down at the opposite end. "I was hoping you had a moment to talk."

He took another sip as he waited for her to finish whatever section she was on, mark her place and set things down, not at all in a rush. Once she was ready, Gangleri took a small breath and smiled. "I was just thinking about things, about how the house seems so much brighter while you're here than it ever has been, how you seem to be a good influence on my brother, and how I think you like it here. It's also closer to your children so it would make for easier visits. Once I get Bart down here you wouldn't even need a dragon rider to take you, the ride isn't too long."

Gangleri paused for another sip of his klah as he watched her calculating eyes, surely already arriving where he was headed, surely already planning dark plots to run from within his home. Which was only appropriate since maybe it would be her home too. He smiled. "I have a modest proposal... we could marry, and all of this would be yours. You wouldn't have to work a the tavern, you can be a dark queen here. I've been thinking of going back to the Hall, and part of me thinks I might not laugh as much if you are back in Telgar. The other part thinks that you just deserve nice things."

As if in agreement, Fret let out a soft musical trill as he crawled over to curl up on the woman's lap.

It had been two days since the Hatching and the worry she carried for her son was finally starting to leave her. She'd been so afraid to see him out there again after nearly losing him a year earlier but there was also some guilt. She had asked R'nya years ago to 'Search' Quinvalis so that he might have a better life at the Weyr. Until that moment her son Impressed, she wasn't sure he ever would and she had signed him up for disappointment after disappointment while constantly in danger.

But he had proven himself worthy--which she always believed even with the doubts from the set up--and Quilriana was beside herself with pride. Her son would be a bluerider and her daughter was getting an education at Healer Hall so she could assist the Weyr. It wasn't the life she had once thought they would have when they were on the farm but it was more than she ever could have hoped for when she brought them to her father's tavern a decade ago.

When Gangleri joined her, she was still thinking about her children more than actually reading but feigned interest in the book by finishing the page before setting it aside. One look at the Harper and Quilriana knew she hadn't been the only one lost in thought and wondered what was on his mind.

She nodded as he spoke, agreeing that she had enjoyed her time and that was why she was still there. Gangleri had convinced her to stay an extra few days to celebrate and properly relax. She hated not being at the tavern but also knew they were more than capable to run it without her for a few more days.

But the way he focused on the liveliness of the house and his brother had Quilriana narrowing her eyes a bit in suspicion. Was he going to tell her to stay forever? Surely he would get tired of her or being here himself and oh.

She idly patted Fret when he crawled into her lap but her gaze stayed on Gangleri. That proposal was unexpected. "I'm thrilled that you're considering a return to the Hall. You deserve your mastership and the chance to torment new young students properly," she teased lightly with a smile. But the other portion of his offer still left her speechless.

She was widowed in her twenties and only had R'nya show any true interest in her aside from some drunkards looking for a one night tumble. It wasn't like she was holding out for a love match and Quilriana knew she had been lucky her father hadn't tried to marry her off again--but two young kids likely put an end to any attempts he had made.

She did enjoy her time at the house and she felt Geric was warming up to her by the day so the offer was tempting. She didn't hate working at the tavern but it was non stop and maybe she had earned the right to some more downtime. But marriage?

"I already know you wouldn't ask more than I would give in the marriage so I won't ask for details, but really, Gangleri? I would be just as happy being taken on as a cook and cleaner." She shifted a bit, doing her best not to disturb Fret, and rested a hand on his arm. A little physical contact was always nice, especially when conveying serious moments. They joked so much, she always wanted to make sure he knew when she meant her words. "Why would you want to tie yourself to me when you could meet someone that deserves to be called your wife?"

To be honest, Gangleri hadn't even thought about hiring the woman and he scratched at his chin thoughtfully while his other hand began to tap out a few chords on his knee to help him think. "I suppose I never have thought of you as anyone who would serve me, not even at the tavern. If anything you take care of me and make sure I'm fed and filled with drink and conversation. The thought of hiring you is just... odd. Dark and powerful Queens of the Night don't normally serve as cleaners or kitchen staff. At least not in my books and plays."

His face softened though as he considered her last question. Why indeed. Had he given up on thoughts of finding someone, or did he just know he never would find what he had again? Did it matter if he did? Would he deserve that? Should he even bother telling Quilriana the truth of his last marriage? Even if it was just a part of it? Gangleri figured at least part of it was necessary, she deserved at least that much. "There was a woman once, though she's long dead now. You're the closest anyone has ever come to making me that happy in all of my wandering and searching since. And perhaps I'm just being an old fool when I say it's impossible for me to find anyone like her again..."

Gangleri thought back to bumping into K'dar and his sister... what was her name? Mylorah. She'd had Javira's face and it still had been a bit of a shock to see her again at the Hatching. He shook his head trying to change the subject, livening things up a bit out of habit with a silly joke. "I know you have your dragonrider, a rather fancy one at that. Maybe one day I'll find one of my own. They come in more feminine packages right?"

If Bart had been there the horse would have scolded him for trying to make such a serious conversation a laughing matter, he was sure of it. He reached out to gently set a hand on one of Quil's for a gentle squeeze. "You make me happy, you help me stay sane when I feel like I'm not, and I would gladly be your minion and make your enemies disappear to satisfy your dark whims. This house was never meant to be mine alone, and if I were to share it with anyone I can't think of anyone better than you, Quil."

Of course he hadn’t even considered the option of hiring her. Gangleri was an odd man in many ways, including his kind view to women—or at least of her. His words about how she never served him but took care of him made her smile softly. If she wanted, she could argue how that was just a politer way of saying she served him since both definitions had her tending to his needs. But she let it slide as she saw the kindness behind the words and how genuine the man was.

It was quite obvious Gangleri wasn’t talking about his wife when he referred to someone he loved and Quilriana’s heart ached for him. The marriage seemed to be on the loveless side of the spectrum from the little he ever spoke about it and then the woman he did love was also dead. How many times could a man strike out in love? Yet there he was, offering to marry her simply because she made him laugh again. Had he given up entirely on finding love again or was the sense of feeling alive once more after wandering for so long what he had decided he longed for the most?

It touched her that he believed she could bring light back into life and Quilriana was close to agreeing simply for that. But there were still hurdles to get over and logistics to work out. “Speaking of that dragonrider… he is a friend and perhaps sometimes more. I wouldn’t want to risk spreading any rumours and ruining your reputation or even your chance at becoming a master.” She knew enough about the Halls from gossip in the tavern to know that getting tapped based on age or experience was not something that was guaranteed. Hall politics were involved and someone had to be willing to stand behind the decision to do so and would they want to assist a man that had a wife that was sleeping with a dragonrider?

“I also wouldn’t dream of asking your brother to leave so don’t even think to try,” she gave him a look worthy of the dark queen he liked to think she was. And speaking of that, “And please. While I’m always looking for dutiful minions, I don’t need anyone disappearing in my name.” Not that Quilriana believed Gangleri would ever do such a thing, no matter how sincere his offer seemed.

Gangleri was not at all surprised when Quilriana admitted there was more than just friendship involved with her dashing dragonrider. Still for her to bring it up and consider it at all meant she was at least considering his idea with some seriousness, so he took it as a good sign. "I imagine that the two of you are somewhat discreet. I would just have to fabricate some reason for him to lurk about the house if I'm not around, or for taking you off on adventures, but honestly that's easy enough if he's cooperative. For one, he can help give you updates on your son's wellbeing and progress, or take you to go visit him."

He imagined that R'nya would be agreeable enough to a little bit of obfuscation, given the way the man had reacted to her son's Impression and how he'd looked at her. "I don't want to get in the way of your happiness, Quil, and if your dragonrider makes you happy then I can deal with a bit of misdirection and political safeguarding. If you don't mind a few different kinds of rumors I could probably tell my father that I'm waiting to try for children again until after I'm a Master in my own right. It gives everyone a lovely distraction, and perhaps motivates him to try to maneuver things in my favor anyway to try and speed his way to grandchildren. I think he's given up on Geric for that."

And speaking of his brother, Gangleri couldn't help but chuckle at her insistence that he be allowed to stay. He held up his hands in defeat and smiled. "If you want him to stay then I won't send him off. I may just have to talk with him a little, depending on how things go. And as for disappearing people, I swear I will never disappear someone in your name. Unless it's to get someone home after a night of drinking and I'm sure they'll reappear shortly after." The drunk he'd already had an encounter with didn't count, he thought to himself. He hadn't done that in Quil's name at all. So long as he kept her name out of things he would be fine. "Do you have any other demands or sacrifices which must be made to you? I am but a simple and innocent Harper, but I will do my best to comply with your dark wishes."

She felt like there was something Gangleri still wasn’t tell her but she let that slide. The thought of being a burden to him was weighing more on her than anything left unsaid but Quilriana wasn’t sure what else there was to say on the matter at the moment. They would both need some time to properly think about how everything would work, especially since she wouldn’t kick Geric out of the home. He may have to be told about the set up to the marriage and that she sometimes had a lover stop by. In truth, she didn’t even sleep with R’nya on every visit. Sometimes the bronzerider only needed someone to talk with as he slipped away from the pressures of life for a bit. And while she felt she owed R’nya a lot for taking in her children and giving them better chances in life, she didn’t need to ask him permission to make changes in her own life.

Not working so hard every day sunrise to sunset had some appeal. It also scared her. She’d been doing that for so long that it had taken the past two weeks to help her unwind and stop worrying about the lack of work she was doing. Not that she would be a woman of leisure. Running a home took work and she could even ask to work in the Hall’s kitchen if she was truly itching to do more. And she could help Geric. He needed guidance and Quilriana wasn’t sure Gangleri was the one to give it.

“My only other demand is that it is just the simple ceremony of exchanging the vows. We’re both widowed and neither of us are marrying into a Lord Holder’s family so anything more isn’t needed.” As he said, it was a modest proposal and one done more for convenience than love—though Gangleri had become a dear friend since he first strolled into the Whetstone. “We’ll still need to work out a few details but I suppose this is me agreeing to the idea.”

Gangleri was not normally a man given to nervousness, but as he sat quietly and waited for Quilriana to think things over, he found himself shifting his weight uneasily, his left hand tapping different chords and arpeggio movements on his thigh. He didn't expect her to rush into anything, he knew she was an intelligent enough woman, far more than her customers gave her credit for, probably more than her own family gave her credit for. She was probably just doing her own mental calculations, looking for any holes in the plan that would need to be filled that perhaps he'd missed in his own eagerness.

He certainly hadn't expected the woman to become so fond of his brother in the short time they'd been there, though Gangleri had to admit it had been nice to see Geric relax a little around her. Maybe it would be fine keeping him in the house. His brother normally was good at keeping his mouth shut about things after all. If Quilriana took him up on his offer. If she didn't... well maybe he would just bring Geric with him the next time he went up to visit Telgar.

His relief when she presented her other demand was so immense that even Fret picked up on it, spinning to gently bump his head against Quil before settling down again with a lazy tail flick. Gangleri's smile broadened and his hand stopped its precise tapping to give hers a small squeeze. "That suits me just fine. We don't even have to invite anyone. I'll handle my family and make sure they don't pester you too much with questions." His parents would understand if he wanted to keep things rather subdued and quiet and not make a big affair of things, at least he was rather sure of that.

"If anything, they'll just be glad that I've started to move on and that I'll be getting back to the Hall. I'll have to speak with K'dar, he mentioned something about helping with an in-law of his, but after that he'll be able to help with ferrying us back and forth or collecting your things, or whatever other minor things we need to do. I'm not sure if his dragon can handle carrying a horse though... I'll have to check on that."

There was so much that would need to be done, even if they were keeping things rather simple. A small chirp from Fret caught his attention though and he slouched back on the couch, grinning merrily at his... future wife now he supposed. "Thank you, Quil. We have plenty of time to figure out the details, but for now maybe we can celebrate. Dinner, wine, and music sound lovely."
