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.

Month 12, 739 AL
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!

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.

The whole mood in the Weyr was dark after the thing with the Weyrleader and his family… He wasn’t sure of exact details, but he didn’t need to know them to know something bad had happened. He knew Mardarian, too. Or, had known him. They hadn’t been close, but the boy had been nice.

With all that had happened, Taydarell’s mood was more sullen than it already was. It was a rare time, candidate classes had let out just a tiny bit early, and it was still before dinner. Taydarell found himself wandering around near the lake without anything else to do, having finished his chores earlier in the afternoon.

A spot of color caught his eye, and he found a small bunch of flowers peeking out from between some boulders. Seeds must have carried on the wind and been waiting until now to start to bloom. It was nice to see the pretty colors after a cold and grey winter. Winter seemed so dead. And with so many terrible things happening lately—he’d heard of some things that happened to other riders, too—it was nice to see a little bit of something happy, and the cheerful flowers were just the thing.

He frowned in thought, though. Tradition said that the flowers should be removed, as green things were to be avoided, because Thread would take root if it got a hold of it, even if it were going to be turns before it ever fell again, if it did. Well, green things outside should be removed…Tradition didn’t say anything about green things inside.

Digging at the plant with his fingers, he scooped up as much of the dirt around it as he could and carried it back to the weyr he still shared with his brother. He wouldn’t move to the Candidate’s quarters until Iliyth clutched, and that was still months away. Cradling the plant in one hand, he fumbled through the cupboards until he found an old, dusty bowl at the back and brought it out, settling the plant inside. The bowl was a bit big, the plant sitting low and lopsided inside. He’d need more dirt. Grabbing a smaller cup, he bounded back to where he’d found the thing and scooped up some of the soil, heading back to the weyr with his mood lifted just a bit.

He stopped short, though, at the figure in the hall, standing outside his door, knocking on it. She hadn’t seen him yet. The thing on her shoulder crooned, and he felt his stomach knot up. He was still sad that he hadn’t Impressed that little bronze, who was looking really good. He sighed. It had been an accident. But it was still a stupid accident.

“What do you want, Zarel?” He asked, voice hollow. Seeing Zarel and that little bronze just reminded him how disappointed he was. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you.” He mumbled, staring into the cup he carried.

Mardarian's death and the whole poisoning tragedy was all anyone was talking about, bringing the Weyr itself into dark thoughts and while Zarel was horrified over the whole ordeal, she had other things to think about. Like how she finally had what she'd been putting every extra minute toward for a whole month, an egg for Taydee. It wasn't a bronze but any egg was good for a person, it didn't matter if it was a specific colour -- Jasper crooned and fussed again, trilling at Taydee softly, his eyes whirling blue-green as Zarel made a soft oof sound.

Taydee's voice did give her a moment of fright but she tried to shake that off so she wouldn't be distracted and drop her precious bundle.

"Kinda want you to get over here and open the door," she said, "I have something very hot and very important for you and it can't wait much longer. I didn't work my arse off every day of the last month for the biggest green egg I've ever seen just for fun. Why're these pots always so awkward? I reckon it'll hatch today. It's been sorta tapping a bit, so maybe in the next hour. Jasper seems to think it's about ready, too."

Zarel paused and her voice dropped into something soft.

"She might net you a bronze one day," she said very quietly. "And more."

With a start, he covered the space to the door and pushed it open, very confused but with at least enough sense to ‘be a gentleman’ as T’pel always tried to get him to do. Even if he wasn’t sure Zarel deserved it. He bit his lip. No, she did still deserve to be treated nicely. She hadn’t meant to Impress his firelizard. It still hurt, but it wasn’t her fault.

Now, what was all this about a big green egg?

His nose wrinkled in a confused frown as she placed the pot next to the hearth, and he peered inside uncertainly. The frown morphed into wide-eyed surprise at the sight of the thing. It really was the biggest green egg he’d ever seen! Well, it was still small compared to other colors, but it was bigger than some blue eggs, maybe even bigger than the smallest browns! Of course, that was no indicator of how big it’d get full-grown, but still…

Now…why was it in a pot on his hearth? He blinked between the egg and Zarel, still not quite sure of what exactly she meant. He was sure she’d never wanted to talk to him again, after he’d yelled at her, and they both cried, and she walked away with his firelizard. So why was she bringing him an egg? Wasn’t that something you’d do for someone you actually liked?

“What…?” While he had been busy gawking at the egg, she’d pulled some meat rolls from a pocket or somewhere and set them beside the pot of sand and stepped back, out of the way, while the little bronze, Jasper, coo’d on her shoulder. “Ready for what?” A small bit of movement answered his question as the egg rocked slightly. ready to hatch… “Oh…”

It all fell together then: she’d brought him an egg in exchange for the one she took. Well…took accidentally. A pit opened up in his stomach then, and he felt hollow again. She really was nice, wasn’t she? She brought him an egg, even after he’d yelled at her. Granted, he thought she deserved it then, but he felt hollow ever since he yelled. So maybe she hadn’t…

“Thanks…”

He stood there for a second, not sure what exactly he should do, and remembered the cup of dirt in his hands. With a sharp breath, he bounced on his toes. “Oh, wait here.” He retrieved the bowl from the other room, dumping the dirt around the roots of the plant and bringing it back to the girl. “I…I’m sorry I yelled. I didn’t mean to. I was just…angry and sad, and disappointed. I didn’t mean to make you cry. Not really.”

"It's okay. I was pretty sad that I Impressed your firelizard, too," Zarel said quietly. "I'm real sorry I Impressed your egg and I did try really hard to get him to you. I guess things are kinda stupid like that sometimes. I picked the biggest in the clutch for you, though."

She sat in one of the chairs furthest from the pot and smiled as it dawned on him that she'd come to do right by him.

"You're welcome, Taydee. Sorry it took so long, too, but I was doing chores to earn the egg. I didn't want you to think that I was just going to leave things as they were. It was awful and you deserve a firelizard that's pretty special."

They were all special, really. All the eggs and the firelizards in them. Jasper started to hum a moment later and she knew from him that there was a cluster of firelizards here and there coming to investigate.

"Oh! Listen, he knows the egg is going to hatch. That's definitely a Hatching hum. D'you want me to wait outside until it does or should I just stay right here out of the way?"

“I know you tried. Things are kinda stupid sometimes.” He awkwardly nudged the bowl with the flowers in it at her. “Here, you can have these. They’re pretty, like…” He trailed off, not sure where he was going with that. “Like those glass things your ma makes. They need water and sunshine. But they’re probably easier to take care of than a new-hatched firelizard.” A giggle escaped him at the thought of struggling to keep a growing flit fed, and he felt his stomach jump at the thought that he’d soon know what it felt like.

She asked if she should leave, and for a moment, he thought he might ask her to do just that. But, before he knew what he was saying, the words were already out of his mouth. “No, please stay…”

The words hung in the air, and he could almost feel them vibrating with the subtle humming coming from Jasper and the couple of firelizards that had joined from the neighboring weyrs. Tadarell had missed his friend. He missed playing and running across the bowl with her. He even kind-of missed her beating him in footraces. And, after their other friend had died, he had to admit he was feeling even lonelier the past couple of days.

The egg rocked in the pot of sand, it’s inhabitant ready to make her appearance very shortly. “Please…maybe you can hand me those meat rolls so I don’t have to fumble around for them when she hatches?”

"Okay," she murmured as the humming intensified. Zarel moved to break apart the meatroll into easily scarfed down sections but stayed well away from the pot itself. Once she was done with that, she filled a bowl with water that would warm near the hearth and found a little towel to use for clean up.

Egg yuck was still egg yuck even after the firelizards had hatched and dried off. And then she found her little pot of oil she'd gotten off a healer. It smelled a little spicy but not at all like a girl.

"You can use this for her when her hide needs it," Zarel said with a nod. "I have more at my place. It's good for when things get flakey or dry, just like when dragons are little. I think this stuff smells better than the flowery ones the ladies all use."

She paused when he said the flower pot was hers and gave him a huge smile.

"Thanks. I'll take care of it proper-like, I promise." She tried not to snort giggle, thinking about a ravenous plant-lizard. "I'd hope it would be easier than having to wake up with a hungry firelizard at something awful in the morning. When I get it home, I'll put it in the sun for a while and make sure it has enough water."

The little bronze’s humming was felt, more than heard, and Taydarell practically buzzed for the excitement of it. In a rush of panic he thought he might need to use the privy, but dismissed the idea. He wouldn’t let that happen again.

The little green lady made her entrance in a much more subdued manner than Jasper had, delicately chipping at her shell instead of being forcibly ejected from it. Taking a moment to blink at the boy in front of her, her eyes whirled rainbow, then red, and she demanded to be fed with a warbling shriek.

With a wide grin, Taydarell pushed a piece of meat roll at her, careful to avoid the needle-sharp teeth and talons, and had another at the ready as he scooped her into his hands. She creeled with hunger, and Taydarell felt it himself, eating away at his stomach, and he knew, Impression had been made! He found a few tears trying to spill down his cheeks, and he wiped them away before Zarel could see. He was happy, after all, and there wasn’t any reason to cry. He stuffed a few more morsels into the little green’s tiny, open maw, and it wasn’t long before she settled against him, tail wrapped around his forearm. Still hungry, but at least satisfied for the moment.

His stomach growled. The hunger wasn’t entirely hers, he realized, as it was well into dinnertime by now. T’pel would be wondering where he was at. “Do you think she’ll be alright if I tuck her into my shirt? We should go get food for us, too. I think her being hungry is making me hungry…”

The little green folded into his tunic, he opened the door for the two of them, and risked a small hug as Zarel moved past him into the hall. “Thanks, Zarrie. For the egg. And for staying. What do think her name should be?”

Oh, that was sweet the way she chipped away at her egg like that, Zarel thought and she was misty-eyed when he Impressed, truly. It was better than she could have foreseen.

"Yeah, I think she'll be fine if you just tuck her in like that. Jasper was a clingy thing until he got himself out of the hunger pains." She smiled as he hugged her and she half waved it away.

"You're welcome, Taydee. I'm just glad it worked out so well this time. You're right about food, though, I could eat. Makes me hungry just looking at you two."

With Hatching and Impression done, the other firelizards went back to wherever they had been in the first place and Zarel stroked Jasper's eyeridges for a moment. Even if his Impression hadn't been the way she wanted to go, it had been incredible.

"They should have something good tonight, as usual, and we won't be that late. She's a pretty thing, reminds me of jade or emerald, actually. I mean, Jasper's a stone, so're they. Maybe Emerald?"

“Emerald…” He rolled the word…the name…over in his head. She did have that sort of look, really. Like the rough, raw one he’d seen once at Ista before it got turned into jewelry for someone. “I like that. It suits her.”

Smells of yummy foods wafted up from the lower caverns, setting his mouth to watering and his stomach to growling even more. Emerald would probably want more food in a few minutes, too.

He smiled at his friend, as they walked, glad he could still call her that. He hoped he she would still think of him as a friend too, even if he wasn’t the nicest person those weeks ago. It didn’t matter if she Impressed his firelizard or not. She didn’t deserve to be yelled at. And he got a perfect little green, anyway. He still had a lot to learn if he was going to be a dragonrider, including being nice. Maybe Zarrie could help him sometimes. She seemed to be a pretty decent person. For a girl. She was nice. Like flowers. Or firelizards.

Like green things.
