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 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.

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.

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. In comparison, Ista finds itself uncommonly warm (~12C / 53.6) 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.

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.

Madiquel’s steps were full of bounce as she left R’nya and Rhaedalyn’s weyr, having spoken with them at length about her desire to return to Fort, as she wanted to keep up her healer training and Fort was home. Its where she felt most comfortable and while Ista was lovely with the warmth, it wasn’t home the way that Fort was. So she would be moving home. R’nya was going to talk to D’hys about arranging to have her Papa transported back to Fort – he’d be asked, but they all assumed he would want to follow Madiquel – and Madiquel was grateful for that; Zezeth insisted she could, but Madiquel wasn’t willing to try her father as a passenger on the delicate and dainty green.

She could feel Zezeth’s exasperation at her thoughts, but she ignored the green as she made her way through the Weyr halls, her aim the Weyrling Barracks to see her friends that had Impressed at the most recent Hatching. She hadn’t made it to view the Hatching, as she’d been bogged down with a really bad bug and travel just wasn’t an option. Which upset her, because of course Quinvalis would go and Impress while she wasn’t there! Madiquel grinned as she exited the Weyr and made a beeline for the Weyrlings.

She spotted them easily, being overwatched by the Weyrlingmaster and Assistants, they were outside for some sunshine and late lunch. Some of the dragonets were sprawled out and sleeping, some were playing, some were still eating, and some were being oiled. Madiquel’s bright gaze flickered across the people until she spotted the one she really wanted to see, and she broke into a run. “Quin!” was all the warning the young rider got before Madiquel threw herself at him, wrapping her arms around his neck and hugging tightly. “Congratulations!” She gushed, pressing a kiss to his cheek and beaming. “What’s your new name? Who is your dragon?” She released him and bounced on the balls of her feet.

Coming along behind her, a little more sedately, was Zezeth. She paused just far enough away to be polite, and curled up in the sun, watching the dragonets with curiosity and interest. They were so different than herself and her own clutchmates and the Weyrlingmaster seemed much more relaxed than their own! Of course, these dragonets were all healthy and happy and full of energy unlike the green and her two blue brothers who had struggled to even break free of their eggs. Hello, Zezeth said softly, in her low and gravelly voice, speaking to the little dragon that was clearly bonded to Madiquel’s friend, and the friend himself. She wasn’t big on speaking, so she didn’t add anything further, just watched them quietly.

The use of his old name was the only reason he looked up in time and prepared himself for the whirlwind that was Madiquel. He was still getting used to being called N'lis--which meant Dalsuth was using it more than necessary to help--and they would probably be in a tangled heap on the ground by now. Instead, he was standing with Madiquel clinging to him while his brain caught up to what was happening and finally had him returning the hug with a smile.

As she pulled back and bounced in place, full of her usual exuberance, N'lis realised how much he missed her. She had been one of his only friends and his first real crush. But he had learned why they were called crushes when he was left devastated and crushed upon seeing her dance so perfectly with A'tay. Interactions since then had almost exclusively been through letters but it didn't feel awkward to see her now. Maybe because he was so tired. Baby dragons were... a lot. Just, a lot.

"Hi! Um N'lis. It's kind of weird, I know. I'm still adjusting to it. And that blue who constantly has ants in his pants is Dalsuth." N'lis pointed to the dragon that was working on his dance moves. He'd been obsessed with the idea of dancing and songs since meeting Gangleri.

No, I don't! Do I? What do ants look like? Dalsuth stopped moving so he could start examining himself for the ants. And then he realised he didn't wear pants so he couldn't have ants in them and gave a delightful giggle before looking up at the large green that approached.Hello! Are you here to play with us as well?

N'lis' eyes went wide as a new voice brushed against his mind. He was used to those in the class and knew this wasn't one of theirs and glanced to Zezeth. "Hi, Zezeth. Thanks for coming to visit us."

“N’lis,” Madiquel repeated, trying the new name out on her tongue and finding she liked it, even if it was a little out of the box. She would have guessed his name would have still held the Q somewhere, but she liked the name his dragon had picked for him. It was kind of a bummer women didn’t carry honorifics anymore. Madiquel had no idea what hers would have been, and she felt Zezeth’s curiosity at the thought. Madiquel smiled brightly at N’lis, and reached out to grab one of his hands, squeezing it. “I’ll try to remember it!” she teased, grinning.

“Hello Dalsuth!” Madiquel added brightly, turning her attention on the little dragon but not letting go of N’lis’ hand for the moment. “That’s my Zezeth.” Madiquel said with proud affection. She was so happy with her dragon, who had managed not to hurt herself for the last six months at least, and seemed to have finished growing to be so much larger than her brothers. Of course, they’d learned early what the cost of that extra length was, and Madiquel was still afraid a strong wind would come along and break the dragon. She felt Zezeth’s mental snort of disgust at the idea. Her dragon was much too gutsy!

What kind of game? Zezeth asked Dalsuth curiously, surprising Madiquel with her words, but not the subject of her question. Zezeth loved being treated normally, and the little blue had certainly won himself a lot of brownie points by just jumping into wanting to play games. Zezeth inched a little closer on her belly, and chirped curiously. Madiquel laughed, shaking her head, and turned back to Quin—No, N’lis! – she reminded herself. “Guess what?” She said, squeezing his hand and beaming, answering her own question before he really had a chance to do more than hear it. “I’m moving back here!”

Some of us like to chase each other and pounce on tails. If you get pounced, you lose! Dalsuth gave Zezeth a careful inspection, considering her ability to play the game. Your tail is very long, though! You might be an easy target. But I bet you're really good at pouncing! N'lis says I'm only eight days old but I'll be a lot bigger one day. Maybe eight months! Then I can properly pounce you. Do you want to try still? Do you know other games? Dalsuth continued to ask questions as he led Zezeth over to a few of his classmates that liked to play with him and N'lis gave a short and slightly nervous laugh.

"Sorry. He has a lot of personality. And enthusiasm. And energy." He chuckled again as he watched a few dragonets approach Zezeth and he smiled. He was probably just as happy for the distraction as their riders were.

When Madiquel asked her question, N'lis had no idea where to begin guessing but didn't need to anyway as his friend blurted out the answer. "That's amazing! There will be so many people happy to have you back here." N'lis smiled brightly, thrilled Madiquel would be around regularly again. Not that his life was still the same. He had a dragon to focus on and wasn't looking after Rhaedalyn's daughters anymore so even if Madiquel went back to that job, he wouldn't be there to help. But he suspected she would focus more on the healing that she loved.

"It's going to be a while before I can properly hang out again but I'm excited you're going to be back in Fort."

Zezeth considered Dalsuth’s words for a few moments, looking at the dragonet and his siblings as she followed him over to them. I am a bit big to pounce you, she agreed. She and her brothers played pouncing games and tumbling play fights. But the blues were awfully careful with her and that took some of the fun out of it. Not that Zezeth enjoyed being hurt, but well, it was no fun if they let her win because they were afraid of hurting her!

I can run away, Zezeth said after a few more moments of thought. You can try to catch my tail. I do not think you will succeed! She stood up tall and stretched like a feline, preparing herself to run around and keep her flicking tail out of the pouncing paws of the youngsters. Once she’d been introduced to the other dragonets who decided they wanted to play, too, Zezeth started the game by bouncing sideways and prancing off, chirping teasingly as she kept an eye on the little ones, her tail flicking too and fro as she ran and bounced around more like a baby goat than a young dragon, the dragonets trailing after her in a good natured pack.

Madiquel watched Zezeth with a small smile as her dragon pranced around. “That’s okay!” She reassured N’lis, turning to grin at him. “She’s very playful, but tends to end up hurting herself because she doesn’t respect her limitations. I don’t think she will in this game, though.” The hatchlings were too small to do more than pounce on her tail, and Madiquel doubted they’d do much damage, even if they body slammed her. Besides, Zezeth was used to rough and tumble playing with her brothers.

A brilliant smile lit up Madiquel’s face when N’lis was happy she’d be moving back, and she giggled. “We’ll both be busy,” she said, gaze returning to the dragonets playing with her own green, “I’m going to go back to the Healer Hall,” she added. “I want to make Journeyman, but I don’t know if I can.” Not because she didn’t have the gusto and determination, but because there really weren’t any women of that rank that she was aware of, and while Verec seemed fair, he wasn’t the only one involved in determining if someone was ready to walk the tables. “But I’m going to try!” Grinning, Madiquel crossed her ankles and then sank to the ground, legs crossed, and tugged playfully on N’lis’ hand to get him to join her.

“How do you like having a dragon so far?” She asked curiously. He was only a few days in, so she knew exhaustion would be a large part of what his experience would consist of, but she was curious to know how it was treating him overall, and what he thought of it.

N'lis watched the babies and Zezeth with only slight apprehension. He believed Madiquel that her dragon would be fine but she was still frail and the young dragons were unknown variables. But the assistant seemed fine with the activity as well--no doubt their own dragon glad for the break from baby-sitting.

He sat down when Madiquel encouraged it and mulled over her dream. He was glad she was still pursuing becoming a healer despite the surprise Impression. It wasn't a huge secret that she hadn't wanted a dragon before it happened but she didn't seem to mind it now. Having Impressed himself, N'lis could now fully understand the bond and what riders meant when they said it felt like the missing piece had been found. He did feel complete now and one day he'd have enough energy to properly appreciate that. "Having a dragon is amazing! But exhausting. Ask me for more details in a month." He laughed, but also kind of meant it. He knew from lessons that what they had been doing the last week would be his future for a few more.

Since he didn't have much else to say on the matter currently, N'lis brought the conversation back to Madiquel and her dream because he was curious about something. "Have you considered becoming a dragon healer? I heard R'nya discussing it sometime ago. Maybe you Impressed Zezeth as a sign that dragons will need you one day." He wasn't really superstitious but from what he had heard about that Hatching, Zezeth was nearly dead when the bond happened. He already knew Madiquel was special and now he knew just how much. "Maybe once you learn more about healing, you can help get the dragon healers operating again and learn how to apply what you know to dragons."

Zezeth seemed pretty happy as she bounced around with the trail of babies following her, and Madiquel smiled as they watched before focusing on N’lis again. His answer to her question caused her no small amount of amusement, and she laughed softly. “Okay!” She promised, and knew it was one she would definitely keep. Maybe in a bit more than a month, but definitely around that time she would be back to badgering her friend about what he thought of his Impression, and having a dragon of his own.

“Enjoy bathing and oiling him while he’s tiny,” she teased, giving a dramatic puff of air as she eyed Zezeth’s immense size for a moment. “At least she’s not gold. I think I’d have to steal Rhaedalyn’s daughters to use as washing minions if she was!” Madiquel couldn’t imagine being responsible for a dragon as big as most of the gold and bronzes got. Way too much work! She’d never have time to work on her Healing lessons!

When N’lis took the conversation in that direction, Madiquel tilted her head slightly and considered him thoughtfully. “Not really,” she answered honestly. “So little is known about the dragons and what can be done to or for them. But there are some Healers who are working on it, and they were so helpful with Zezeth and her brothers, you know?” She paused, nibbling on her thumb nail. “I might look into it when I’ve finished my people training,” she said, words slow and thoughtful, “but I think Zezeth and I will be better with the people; big dragons are better at making other dragons be quiet and lie still than skinny little greens.” She grinned, giggling when she felt rather than heard Zezeth’s snort of disgust.

N’lis laughed but shook his head. “I dunno. I was helping goldrider Cazan oil Malvayth and that almost seemed easier than the constant upkeep on Dalsuth right now. He might be small but the oiling is every few hours makes him feel a lot larger.” But he could agree that he was happy Dalsuth wouldn’t reach the full size of a gold or bronze. No matter what he said about helping Malvayth, N’lis didn’t think he would want to do that regularly in the end. He’d only done it for several months and normally only in itchy spots, not always her full body.

He considered her reasoning and nodded at the sense it made. Madiquel would be good with the people, her charm and smile would set people at ease before she started setting bones or stitching a wound. He’d gotten to know several healers over the course of his career at Standing and especially recovering from the mauling and N’lis could say with certainty that bedside manners really did go a long way. He absently rubbed a hand over some of the scarring on his arm that was always covered up as he thought back to the nice ones. A couple of the healers always treated him kindly and sometimes even on his lowest days, N’lis still felt like they cared and weren’t judging him as inadequate.

But something Madiquel had said stuck with him and N’lis cocked his head to the side considering the idea. “Do you think bronzeriders or goldriders were dragonhealers before? Like you said, if larger dragons work better at calming the injured dragon, then those would be the best ones. I think it’s a good thing that R’nya has the women training after all.” The goldriders wouldn’t be combating Thread so having them trained to heal the humans and dragons injured in Threadfall really did make a lot of sense now that he was giving it more thought. Of course he didn’t want to discredit the other colours! L’gan had been one of the kind healers and spoke about his trying to learn more about the dragonhealing techniques and N’lis wished him well on that. Semath would be an excellent assistant.

“Anyway, when are you moving back?” They would both be busy for a while for regular meet ups again but N’lis was excited to have a friend back in the Weyr and wanted to have something to look forward to. Besides, it seemed Dalsuth was a fan of Zezeth and N’lis winced as he watched his dragon leap and wipe out on the ground. Dalsuth didn’t seemed fazed at all by it and was soon back up and leaping after the swaying green tail again. He was one determined blue and even as he had that thought, N’lis realised how much the game was like a Flight but on the ground. Thankfully they were months upon months away from worrying about Flights and N’lis quickly stopped thinking about it when he felt Dalsuth’s interest piquing.

“It would make sense,” Madiquel said slowly, considering the question N’lis had put forward with pursed lips and a thoughtful frown. “And gold dragons really don’t have much else to do,” she said slyly, looking sideways at N’lis with a small smirk on her lips. “They can’t breathe fire, and spend so much time confined to the Sands.” It made sense to Madiquel that they would have something important to do, even if they couldn’t get out and about to fight Threadfall in the sky.

“Oh!” She grinned when the subject turned back to her move, and Madiquel bit her lip as she considered. “I don’t have a set day, really. Mostly its in the hands of R’nya what with the paperwork and stuff.” She waved a hand vaguely to indicate that she’d submitted her transfer and was waiting to hear back from it. “And getting Papa onto a dragon. Ze is too small to carry us both – I am not. – no matter what she says,” Madiquel said with a roll of her eyes. “R’nya said he would get D’hys to pick him up.” She swooned playfully against N’lis, fanning her face with a giggle. “He’s so sweet!” She was not talking about R’nya, though he had his moments of sweetness.

Sitting upright again and giggling still, Madiquel shook her head. “Hopefully sooner rather than later. I’m going to spend this afternoon cleaning up my weyr, and Ze and I brought a little bit of my stuff, too.” It was currently all dumped on the ledge of the weyr she’d been assigned, waiting to be put away. Madiquel wasn’t in a hurry to do that, because it was boring and none of her friends were free to spend a lazy afternoon with her dusting a weyr. Which was fair, but no fun. Better to throw herself at N’lis and his baby dragon class and enjoy the afternoon with friends.

N’lis managed a little laugh at Madiquel’s swooning over the older bluerider. It sucked to be reminded again that she certainly had a type—handsome and blonde. He was neither which explained why she had never taken notice of him. But she’s noticing you now? Dalsuth said from where he stopped chasing Zezeth’s tail to turn and tilt his head curiously at the humans. N’lis paled at his dragon’s words and hoped the ground swallowed him in the next twenty seconds. It didn’t so he was left trying to keep his thoughts from wandering while also glancing around to see if anyone else paid Dalsuth any mind while also hoping it looked like he was trying to figure out who his dragon was speaking to.

It didn’t seem like Madiquel had really noticed as she continued talking about her move and her plans for the day and N’lis gave a quick nod to show he heard. “I would help you if I could,” he stated with a frown. While he loved Dalsuth with all of his heart, being a weyrling had a lot of limitations. He knew that from lessons and seeing so many classes over the years he’d been in the Weyr but he always believed it wouldn’t bother him. He was introverted and tried to stay away from people as much as he could and hid in his room when not needed for chores. Yet now that he couldn’t wander freely or help certain people like he used to, it was really noticeable how much he actually did interact with others and that he did have a few friends. Luckily Aederyn had Impressed with him so he had at least one friend with him in the class and it was easy to stay back and let the louder personalities draw attention. The only problem was Dalsuth was one of the louder dragons.

“I’m really glad that you’ll be back here, Madiquel. I said that already, didn’t I?” He blushed and looked at his shoes. She had a way of making him relax but also trip over himself in turns and it was clearly time to be a fool in front of her. “I’m also glad that our dragons seem to be getting along. I’ve heard of people that are friends or even mates but their dragons hate each other. That would be awful.” Hopefully he would never have to stay away from a friend to keep Dalsuth happy but N’lis currently didn’t think anyone would ever fall into that category from the way he pranced around with Zezeth and the others.

Madiquel flushed with pleasure, and impulsively leaned over to press a warm kiss to N’lis’ cheek, hugging him tightly. “Me too!” She grinned, leaning her head on his shoulder and turning her gaze towards the dragons as they were commented on, laughing softly. “Ze is pretty easy going,” Madiquel said cheerfully, sitting up straight as her dragon looked over, waving at the green before Zezeth bounced out of reach of the hatchlings again, trilling playfully. “I couldn’t imagine what I’d do if she didn’t get along with the dragons of my friends!” It was a pretty saddening thought, that some dragons couldn’t get along, not even for their beloved bonded.

Shuddering at such a distasteful thought, Madiquel slapped a hand over her belly as it rumbled, and she laughed bashfully. “I haven’t eaten yet.” She explained without need, tilting her head and brushing her hair out of her face. “Have you had lunch? Wanna come with?” A pause. “Are you allowed to go to the Dining Hall without him?” She indicated the dragon. “I’m not really sure the ins and outs of actual Weyrlinghood,” she admitted, scrunching her nose up. “I could get some food and bring it back?” A pause. “Are you even hungry? Letting you answer that might help.” She blushed again, wondering why she was feeling so awkward.

N’lis blushed under the quick kiss to his cheek despite knowing that was just a very Madiquel thing to do with all of her friends. Again, he quickly thought about anything else, like the patch of grass they sat on, so Dalsuth wouldn’t start asking questions or announcing feelings again. But he was glad that after so much time apart because of one dragon or another, that Madiquel still seemed comfortable with him and he could call her friend. He didn’t know why he was surprised since they had been keeping in touch via letters.

He laughed at the growling stomach and string of questions which helped distract him away from dangerous thoughts. But he was soon frowning as he shook his head. “We ate a bit ago and we eat away from everyone else to help keep the noise down,” he smiled again as he thought about how loud their little class was when all together. One day he hoped to know what silence was like again. Another couple of months, hopefully. “But I don’t want to keep you from eating! The dragons are probably due another feeding themselves.”

N’lis glanced back at the ones playing with Zezeth and decided they would definitely be in need of some food with all the energy they were burning. And then some bathing to clean up after the meal and then some more oiling. He knew the growth spurt was fast and hard in the early months and started to slow around month five or so but that was a long ways away still. The class kept getting reassured that the rounds of oiling would lessen eventually and focusing on just itchy spots would begin. More things to look forward to and hopefully reach.

“But I’m really happy you stopped by and um,” N’lis hesitated and stared at the grass for a moment to gather his nerves. He was mostly over his crush he reminded himself but Madiquel was still pretty and left him floundering when he tried to be bold. “I hope you can visit more regularly once you’re settled in and our free time aligns.” There, he did it and managed a shy smile.

“Oh,” Madiquel said, slightly disappointed, but she nodded her head thoughtfully, it made sense not to bombard the Dining Hall with loud dragonets. Madiquel had been lucky, what with her class being so small and with them all being generally quiet. Well, mostly. Until someone set off Dyoricath, of course, but Dyoricath had a voice loud enough to be heard across the whole Weyr regardless of where any of them were.

“Ze will probably want to eat, too,” Madiquel said thoughtfully, turning to look at her dragon. “She hasn’t eaten for a few weeks.” Studying her dragon, Madiquel chewed on her bottom lip. “I’ll have to ask R’nya if Xyreith can kill something for her. She hasn’t hunted since she broke her leg trying to take down a beast.” That had been so scary and Madiquel had quickly made arrangements with Eb’zer and L’gan to have their dragons bring food for Zezeth. That arrangement hadn’t ended even after Zezeth’s leg had healed, but with them moving back to Fort, other arrangements would need to be made. R’nya at least wasn’t likely to mind, but Madiquel felt both he and Xyreith likely had better things to do than hunt for a scraggly green.

Madiquel’s lingering consideration over her dragon’s needs was interrupted when N’lis spoke, and she turned her attention back to him, smiling easily as he stared down at the grass, oblivious to the reason for his discomfort. Her smile bloomed into a widened expression as he continued, and she nodded her head. “Definitely!” Madiquel extended her hands, offering them to N’lis to assist in pulling him to his feet so he could collect his dragonet. Once he was up, she gave him a quick hug. “I’ll see you soon!” She promised. “I need to eat and I have to tidy my room otherwise I’ll have no where to sleep tonight!” Laughing, Madiquel waved before running across the grounds towards the main entrance. Food!
