Ready for this?

"I'm always ready for this," Ameris chuckled at the gold as they waited for the candidate masters to bring the groups of candidates through. It wasn't the first time for either the woman or the gold and Ameris was certain everything would go without a hitch. She was thankful for the generally easy time Mizeath seemed to have with her clutches, never mind the fire during a hatch and Mizeath's last gold daughter betweening while taking a bronze with her. If one didn't think of those tragedies, Mizeath's clutches were just fine.

She greeted each of the candidates that came down to touch the eggs, she knew some wouldn't and that was alright, it only annoyed Mizeath a little. Ameris always had to assure the gold that it wasn't a slight against her, some people just didn't want to do harm to the eggs they touched. There was always that possibility and Ameris liked to pretend that was the only reason.

"Have fun guys!" she called out, "But remember no roughhousing and do be nice to the eggs even if they're not nice to you!" The last was said with a grimace, she knew some of the shelled eggs could be quite... Tart, she'll go with tart, to the candidates who touched them. She'd seen candidates cry and glower and leave when they couldn't handle whatever it was the dragonets told them.

She settled back with Mizeath as the first candidate came forward.


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 11:00 am and these guys are the first group, meaning that no one else has Touched the eggs yet. There are 21 eggs and no gold, there is a minimum of one-touch 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, they can watch from the ledges or stands. 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, some are large and some are small.

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 1-21

Sironar took a deep breath as he stepped out on the sands and studied the eggs. A small encouraging chirp came from the stands where Fancy Lad had perched up on the half wall to try and be as close as he could and watch his boy without being in the forbidden zone. It was just eggs, just a touching. After very politely greeting the Weyrwoman and her dragon, he took one more look at the eggs and decided to just pick one and go for it.

That was what he as here for right? This was what he wanted. He took a long route, not wanting to weave between the eggs and instead opting to just circle around, until he came to the egg that he'd chosen because it seemed a tiny bit smaller than the others. He knew that might not mean anything as to what color it could be, and really all of the eggs were rather large if he thought about it, but it was something different at the very least. Something to catch his attention and get him moving and not thinking about how excited his father probably was that he was trying to show more of an interest in Standing again after his last little hiatus.

He very cautiously reached out and set his hand on the egg.

"Okay, which ones do you want to look at?" Zoremet frowned and considered the question as he leaned against Zelly. He was suddenly really glad that she'd offered to help him, he'd thought he'd be able to stand and walk just fine on his own, but the heat was hitting him harder than he thought it would. But if Zelly was helping him it made sense to try and find a nice clump of eggs so she wouldn't have to go far to touch her own egg too.

He pointed off to a nice little close cluster of eggs. "There." Thankfully he didn't need to lean on her while they walk, just had to pause and catch his breath once they arrived. And no one had made fun of him either for needing the help, or kicked him out yet. Really, if anything his friend was just there to make sure he didn't fall, he told himself. He was doing okay, even if the stitches still pulled a bit. A few in his arms had already been removed, but the others he had to wait a little longer on before the healer would take them out. Something about their more vital location, or in the case of his left hand, because he kept moving it a lot and the skin there needed extra support to avoid opening back up.

He made sure he was good again before nodding at Zelly and reaching out to touch an egg. Hopefully the baby inside was having a better time than he'd been having. Then again it was in an egg so it was probably safe.

Zelly was really glad that Rh'us had released the brothers in time to attend the Touching. It wouldn't have been the same without them! How could she have talked about the eggs they touched if they didn't also touch eggs after all. Sure Mylo would be there, and the other candidates, but it just wouldn't have been the same to have to leave them out. So really she was glad that Zory was here, and if that meant she had to help make sure Zory didn't fall, she was fine with doing that. She just wish the stitches he still had weren't so pokey whenever he leaned a bit too hard against her.

Still, she could suffer a few uncomfortable moments for a friend. Even if Zory wasn't a great cuddle friend, A'tay had been quite worried about his brothers, so she'd promised to keep an eye on them for him. He made sure he didn't stumble on their way to the eggs he'd pointed out and made sure he wasn't going to fall before she gave him a thumbs up and took a look at the other eggs. It felt weird to just do the same one he'd done, so she decided to settle on the one that had a nice flat spot on the top and gently reached out to set her hand on it.

Fediletch was a bundle of nerves as he stopped in the entrance and just stared at the eggs. It was fine. It was going to be fine. Everyone had told him so, he wasn't in trouble here, he wasn't even in trouble at Fort anymore he'd heard. Even Malvayth seemed to just forget who he was. But he knew who he was, and that was a terrible baby murderer.

It had been an accident, Fetch reminded himself, he'd just... be extra careful here. So he took another deep breath and walked out, hesitantly found an egg that was a little bit further away from any other eggs on the edge of the group. This would probably be fine, nice and safe, if something happened he could just backpedal to empty sand and no one and nothing would get hurt.

Still he hesitated for a moment as he looked around to make sure no one else was headed his way, that no one looked like they were going to be getting into a fight or anything. He did manage to see Mylorah and put a nervous smile on his face as he waved. Now he definitely had to go through with this. She was one of his best friends and had been trying to get him to go to another hatching for a while. So Fetch looked at the egg, swallowed down his nerves, and reached out to touch it.

While he wasn't fully discharged from the infirmary just yet thanks to his inability to keep most solids down, Orgailian had won the battle to at least attend the Touching. He was able to hobble around on his own and he hadn't vomited in the last twelve hours so Rh'us had decided to be kind for once. Thank fuck because if he was going to almost die and just be in Benden in general, he might as well have some purpose. He still had Mylorah baby-sitting him, though. Zoremet had claimed Zelly before he could so he was stuck with their sister but at least she wasn't fussing as much now as she had been early on. Walking, even at a slower pace, seemed to have some benefits after all.

He noticed some glances at Zor and him but so far no one had asked questions and most hid the pity they likely felt. That was definitely a perk to staying in the infirmary--less people to deal with. He only had to deal with his siblings and Healers and Orgailian actually found it kind of fun to sass Rh'us since the Healer gave it right back in his own gruff manner. He wondered exactly how bronze the rider was and if he specialized in sexual healing as well.

Thoughts for later as he took a moment to adjust to the heat on the Sands. Rh'us had mentioned it might be hard on him and it definitely did suck more than usual but he'd get a few eggs in and bounce before he fainted or puked. Hopefully. He adjusted his goal to not faint or puke on an egg and moved closer to the clutch. Mylorah told him she'd be close by if he needed her but then left him to have his moments with the eggs.

Today's Touching didn't have the luxury of roaming and looking for the most interesting egg since he didn't want to travel further than needed so he had been dumped in a spot that had several close together. "I'd say be kind but that will probably encourage you to do the opposite so do what you want to me," Orgailian took a breath to steady himself and finally set a palm against the shell.

"I'll be nearby if you need me," she promised her brother before moving off to another egg that was currently vacant thanks to there being a couple more eggs than Candidates. But she didn't Touch it right away, simply stared at it. Her mind was still processing the last week's events and how close she was to losing three brothers. No one else had been attacked since but was that because the attacker was smart and lying low before striking again or had something happened in another Weyr and it was being kept hush-hush for some reason? She hated that she had to give the man credit and assume he was clever. It was likely the same person as last year, the same person that had avoided discovery. But was he a Benden resident or from another Weyr and was cleverly throwing them off in that regard as well?

It didn't do anyone any good to keep stressing over those questions. Smarter people could work on it. She was just there to be with her family and try to Impress. Maybe she'd try to fit in more time for friends as well. If she didn't Impress, she'd be shipping off to Fort soon enough and away from T'drin, N'mor, and a couple of other friends once more. Given her mood, she hadn't seen too much of them as she didn't want to make them worry but friends always did wonders for her spirit, as Fetch showed just by coming into view when she glanced around. Mylorah smiled brightly and waved and was so glad he had come to Stand again. She would definitely see him later that day to compare eggs and just to see how he was doing.

Satisfied she had her head back on mostly straight again, Mylorah took a step closer to the egg and then gasped. She hadn't written to Gangleri to tell him about the attacks! Maybe K'dar had since they were also friends but she felt awful now given Gangleri knew Orgailian. Maybe it was a good thing since she wouldn't have wanted to worry him. Now she could explain the attacks and that everyone was recovering. Good, that was good. Once again, she settled herself and then finally put a hand on the egg.

Ulliendis didn’t see the need to be so uptight and afraid again. Sure, some attacks were happening again but other than a gold dragon in his home Weyr of Fort, there hadn’t been any deaths. Yes it sucked that people were still injured but they were recovering as the two blonde men slinking into the Sands with him showed. Maybe they were just lucky, maybe the attacker wanted to send a message of some sort. They’d find out when it was time, he supposed. Until then, he guessed being a little more aware of surroundings wasn’t too horrible of a thing. Then again, maybe that was just his immunity to some poisons and how to counter others talking. Speaking of that, he needed to get to know Zelana a bit more after learning about her interest in such things but she was too attached to the walking wounded and he hadn’t been able to steal much of her time. He’d get to her eventually.

For now, he had eggs to caress.

Ulliendis followed a pair that seemed to have a plan. He was just there for the fun of it all and hadn’t mapped out a route or any such thing. As the two continued on to their starting point, he came to a stop at an adorably squat egg. This would do. “Hello, darling. What do you have in store for me, I wonder aloud to myself because I still don’t quite believe you’re aware of us until we’re touching. Even that seems odd, truthfully.” Ulliendis had formed a theory that Candidates were actually drugged before attending the Touching whether through food, water, or maybe in the air when they entered the cavern. That part was a work in progress but he had to wonder if it was some sort of psychedelic drug to make gullible and desperate people have some sort of experience. He’d been around dragons enough now to know they could speak and were nosy bastards but how did such a connection happen with an egg between them?

Oh! Maybe the egg had a poison of some kind on it and that was how the trip happened. He crouched so he could see more of the surface of the shell to give it a visual once over. It didn’t seem like anything was on it and during all of the other Touchings he’d been to, his hand never came away wet, sticky, or with a powder on it. Something in the air was still a possibility and was it any more outrageous to believe than an unhatched dragonet actually connecting to his mind? It really was a wild trip either way and Ulliendis stopped pondering how it happened and simply let it as he finally touched the egg.

You will be late. You know it is rude to be late., Nadioth's smooth yet slightly haughty tone called to Kelian through the weyr as she got cleaned up. Kel smiled a bit as she glanced in the gold's direction. She knew that Nadioth meant well and liked her well enough, considering she was more or less part of her human family, but she had high expectations, even from humans. It didn't do to get on Vaeyla's gold's bad side, her temper tantrums were rather daunting honestly. Not that she herself had ever caused one, nor would she want to for that matter.

Her father's Weyrmate's gold was honestly very sweet, once she allowed you to know her, if not fierce and demanding. Early that morning she had demanded a bath and Kelian had gladly helped Vaeyla with the chore since she hadn't been needed anywhere else. "I'm going! I'm going!", she called to the great golden lump, perched on her ledge next to her father's brown. She had finished getting cleaned up, said her goodbyes to Vaeyla and Vaelon who they had picked up after bathing Nadioth, and rushed out the door, the skirt of her boring blue dress flapping as she ran.

A short time later she was catching her breath outside the entrance to the vast hatching grounds. She was all too familiar with the hot sands within, from wall to wall honestly. However, as often as she had been left standing on those sands, she always managed to keep hold of the hope that there was a dragon for her still. Hopefully. Standing with the other candidates, most of them younger than her, she let the excitement of eggs on the sands wash over her. Even without a gold egg it was exciting for her. She enjoyed, mostly, the various personalities she encountered when touching eggs, on those occasions when the hatchlings inside deemed she was worthy of their attention anyway.

Kelian did her best to clear her mind of any negative thoughts as she made her way onto the sands. The recent attacks were still fresh and several people were still suffering. It made her think of the attacks from the previous Turn, which made her shudder a moment and she had to stop. That was the exact opposite of what she had meant to do. She made a face, at herself, then moved away from the other candidates a bit, towards a mottled egg. Again, she did her best to clear her mind, she pulled happier thoughts into her mind, took a calming breath, then laid her palm against the smooth, hardened surface of the egg. "Good morning little one. Do you have anything to share with me today?"

Egg #21 to Sironar:

If Sironar was cautious this egg was anything but, exuberance and excitement abound as it slams into his mind with all the finesse of a charging herdbeast. Whats this?! What’s that?! Oh, a hiatus? What's a hiatus? Were you frightened then? Are you frightened now? Question after question bombards Sironar’s minds before the dragonet leaves with just as much suddenness as it had arrived.



Egg #13 to Zoremet:

Oh. This egg was gentle with Zorement, soft and careful as it takes a hold of his mind to rifle through memories and emotions. It wouldn’t be jarring or uncomfortable for the candidate, rather like the warmth of an embrace from his best friend. You are injured? It queries with concern coloring that mental voice. That is unfortunate, it thinks before a gentle caress can be felt. It was gone without much warning and perhaps the candidate doesn’t quite know of its absence before moving on.



Egg #14 to Zelana:

Hello! Came something of a bright and slightly shrill thought. How nice of you to look out for your friend! That’s good. Zelana might feel a little encouragement in that aspect before the dragonet takes a deep and somewhat forceful dive into her memories. Oh that was interesting! Is that as fun as it looks? Seems sweaty… Stitches look awful! Do you have stitches too?! Thanks for coming! Zelana might hear before the dragonet inside her egg darted away with a flip of an invisible tail.



Egg #4 to Fediletch

One can not be faulted for an accident when one was protecting another… Can they? Do not take too much care or others might think you weak, you don’t want to be seen as weak do you? Being weak is an awful experience and the dragonet would know better than Fediletch wouldn’t you think? The egg might give a wiggle beneath Fetch’s hand, wobbling enough as the dragonet tried to shift inside. Oh no! Are they hatching right now?! Better run Fediletch, better make an escape!

Egg #11 to Orgailian

This one was curious when Orgalian laid a palm against its shell. Why would it do the opposite? Was Orgailian expecting to be catapulted onto the ground? No, this dragonet was far too regal for anything like that. It perused his memories, frowning here and there at some that caught its attention. Humans were such fascinating creatures, it thought to the candidate as it slowly pulled from his mind.



Egg #9 to Mylorah

Oh, this was a bright one, and by bright, it meant her personality. Maybe she was intelligent too the dragonet had to concede and dove into her thoughts. Oh! How interesting, such fun, and such excitement. She was a bright one after all! Whooooo is Gangleri? Curiosity was ripe and heavy and the dragonet might have gasped with outraged shock at the images it mined from Mylorah’s memories. Perhaps this one wasn’t all that intelligent after all… It gave her a sad pat on her head before softly moving away.




Egg #17 to Ulliendis

It’s very nice of you to be so kind, the dragonet would say as it slipped into the comforting mind of Ulliendis. How kind of him to think so far ahead to make sure they could hear him. Do you really think you all are drugged? It would ask with amusement at his thoughts. They didn’t think the candidates were drugged but what if they were? Perhaps the voice inside Ulliendis’ mind was simply a figment of his imagination. Spooooky! The dragonet was wildly amused at the candidate’s theory as it sifted through his mind like a deck of cards shuffling. It left with a companionable pat as it took its leave.



Egg #7 to Kelian

So many things! The dragonet inside would bombard Kelian’s mind with all of the images it had dragged out of her memories and those it had collected. It was a kaleidoscope of images, too fast for Kelian to make much sense of it and it may have brought the beginnings of a headache to the candidate. It thought Kelian’s father was a silly man but it didn’t really understand the concept of aging and old but it certainly liked all these siblings Kelian possessed! Go forth and have more memories, it urged her, and maybe she could share them with the occupant when it finally saw the world.

He should have known better than to try and converse with the egg, Siro had been through this enough to know he couldn't just have a conversation with an unborn dragon. And yet he still found himself just blinking at the barrage of thoughts and questions, opening his mouth to stammer out a half formed answer. "It's..." And it was gone, just as suddenly as it had appeared before he could even get out another word.

Sironar stared at the egg, hand gently resting on the surface for a moment longer before he finally pulled his hand back and straightened up as he moved to the side so he could think. He wasn't afraid. Not really. Was he? He supposed part of him was. His brother had died after he got his dragon. Siro had watched his father go from the deep sadness of his mother's death to celebrating his brother's impression and then far too soon right back into grief when his brother disappeared forever between.

What if it just happened to him too? Would his father be more disappointed by him never impressing or by him just having another accident like S'fron had? The answer really was obvious, he doubt his father wanted him to die, but Siro still knew he'd be a little disappointed if he didn't impress. And part of him would be disappointed too. Siro frowned and decided to walk a bit more to clear his head before he went and found another egg to touch. It didn't matter if he was afraid of what happened if he did get a dragon. He wanted one anyway. He paused at a nice looking egg and reached out to set his hand gently on it.

It felt like a mental cuddle almost and Zoremet couldn't help but smile at the gentle concern. This was probably the nicest egg he'd ever met and when he finally realized it had moved on he was sad to see it had gone. Hopefully it would pick him even if he was in a little rough shape, and if not hopefully it found someone nice who would appreciate cuddles just as much as he did.

He was in such good spirits that he was tempted to just stop right there and go stagger off to sit and wait for everyone else, but he didn't want to just be a weirdo. And even if the next egg was mean he could still just think happy thoughts about the egg that had give him a cuddle. He glanced over at Zelly and saw she was still busy with her egg. That was fine. He could do this. He was feeling great after all. So he took a deep breath and took a few careful steps to pick another nearby egg.

With a smile he gently reached out for another quick touch, eager to see what this new egg could bring. Zory knew it probably wasn't going to be cuddles, but that was fine. At least he'd have at least one really good story to share with his siblings and friends when they swapped notes.

Zelana couldn't help but think it was always a bit odd to feel like someone was reading her like a book, just frantically flipping pages, snooping at her secrets. She was glad that her parents hadn't been able to do anything like that! And that the dragons she'd met didn't seem particularly interested in sharing what they found if they even did the same rummagy sort of thing.

Still! Even with it being a bit unnerving to feel happen, she couldn't help but smile anyway at the curious and bright energy. Zelly was pretty sure she knew exactly what the egg was talking about when it asked about fun and she couldn't help but giggle and nod. Sweat was fine! She promised! Though she was also sure that it didn't really matter what she tried to say or do in response. She still tried to think on whether or not she had ever needed to get stitches for anything. Most of her visits with the various healers had been for rather minor childhood illnesses aside from the time she'd been poisoned. So no, no stitches that she could think of.

As soon as she felt that equally bright and animated exit she turned to look for Zory and saw he'd already managed to move on to another egg. Glad that he was feeling good enough to do that she decided to pick another one relatively near him and set her hand down to see what this one would be like.

Whooosh!

Kelian's mind was suddenly filled with more images than she could have thought to expect from one so young in the shell. It had been wholly unexpected and gave her a start of surprise, yet she had not removed her palm from the warm shell. She tried to keep up with the blur of images, many from her own memories, that she barely caught glimpses of, then rushes of images that she had no idea what they were. Were they the dragonets memories or memories from other candidates?

Trying to sort through the excited, whirling images started to cause a slow buzz in her head that she didn't immediately recognize as a headache, as she was so preoccupied trying to watch what the dragonet was showing her. It was impossible, really, trying to catch hold of everything she was being shown, the excitement with which she was being given what she had asked for. And she HAD in fact asked if the dragonet had anything to share with her. Apparently this little one simply wanted to share everything with her and that was okay! But her head was starting to ache just a little, she didn't mind it though.

The thought that her father was silly, made her smile and laugh just a bit. He was so full of life, laughter and, yes, silliness but he loved her and her siblings so much. Her heart pulled a bit as she remembered his being attacked the Turn before and she was glad to still have his quirky self around. And yes, she was very glad to have all of her siblings as well, even little Vaelon. Did she think her father and Vaeyla we're crazy? Yes. Did she love them or her siblings any less? No.

She felt the urging of the little dragon to make more memories and she smiled at the egg and the young occupant within. "I will. There's plenty yet to do, isn't there?", she said with a smile. She wondered briefly who the little dragon would choose when he or she hatched and what memories they would make, before she said goodbye, the flooding of images and thoughts coming to a stop as the connection broke off. What an adventure that had been!

She gave herself a moment to collect herself and her thoughts before venturing off towards another egg. "And Good morning to you. Do you want to talk to me today too?", She asked quietly, still amused from her last encounter, hopeful that this dragonet would be as excited for company as the last.

Fetch was so very confused. He supposed he was trying to protect someone... trying to protect both of the fighting boys really from each other by trying to break things up. But was the egg asking him if he could be faulted or not as an actual question or one of those tricky questions people didn't really want answered? It was probably that second one, since he was punished for it anyway. Was he weak because he hadn't been strong enough to not fall over when he was tackled? Maybe he needed to pick things up more. Go climbing. Try to become stronger.

The thought about the dragonet being weak only made him sad and Fetch frowned. He was supposed to be strong to help people who were weak! Or maybe he was supposed to help people who were weak because he was strong. Except he didn't really feel strong at all when it came to this. He just wanted to sulk and avoid people and... oh. That was probably what the egg had meant. At least he didn't fall for the shaking. That was the sort of tactic one of his younger siblings would do to try and play a trick. "I know you're not hatching, this is just a Touching." He mumbled under his breath before he straightened up and scratched at his head.

Maybe the next egg would be a bit simpler and give him more time to think about this one and weakness and strength a bit more. Either way he scratched at his chin, and forced a smile on his face when he saw Mylo before he moved on to another egg to touch. He found another one that didn't have any other candidates nearby and gently set his hand on it.

Catapulted to the group? Kind of, yeah. Some of the past Touchings had some pretty wild eggs that fucked with the mind. Thallyath's first clutch had been awful and a lot of Candidates actually had ended up on the ground as they shrieked and writhed in pain that didn't actually exist. He was one of the ones that had gone on to Stand still but that was due to Casa being a friend more than having any confidence in the eggs while hoping he didn't Impress to the chaotic beasts. Otherwise, so many dragonets hidden away in their eggs were tricky and liked to play games, including the opposite of what was expected. But Orgailian liked this one and the regal airs it gave off. His instinct was to assume it was a bronze, one like Syrendryth, but it could be any colour. There were so many examples of each colour behaving against their usual stereotypes like the greens that viewed themselves as important and sophisticated as golds. ...and then there was Malvayth who was like the ditziest green.

As the presence left his mind, Orgailian supposed it had been right and humans were fascinating. His own interest in history and how people were in the past proved that fact on its own. Even his creative writing was evolving and being influenced by random slices of life moments around him. But he couldn't help but wonder about the parts of his own life that felt like they had disappointed the dragonet. He didn't like having regrets and didn't think he had any aside from the recent one concerning not being able to keep his brother safe.

He supposed some of it just wasn't proper enough for the egg's contents but it had still amused Orgailian enough overall to keep an eye on the egg at the Hatching. He made a mental note to remember the egg's number to see who it went to. He doubted they would bond but it'd be interesting to see who it did pick and what its colour was. "I'll see you soon," he gave his parting words and glanced around, spotting Mylorah contemplating her own egg and then the egg between them that was vacant. Good enough. He felt like he had one more in him before the heat messed with him too much and the closer the better. No time was wasted in considering the egg or his feelings as he set his hand on the shell.

Gangleri had started calling her bright and shining not too long ago so it amused her that the drgaonet did as well. Mylorah liked the descriptors as she thought she had a friendly and open personality but laughed when the dragonet wondered about the other definition of 'bright'. She thought she did all right for herself but didn't think she was anything special and certainly not smart like most of her siblings and a lot of her friends. But that didn't bother her. Everyone was unique and brought something different to the world. She was the fun girl that sometimes had good ideas. She was also a terrible influence as her memories of Gangleri showed as she thought about the Master Harper when there was a prodding for more.

But then Mylorah was frowning at the distinct impression the dragonet truly had figured out she wasn't smart and gave her a pat on the head before leaving. What had been seen to bring on that sharp turn of sensations? What was she missing and how much of a bigger fool was she actually? Her hand fell to her side and she continued to frown at the egg, trying to puzzle it out. And then she was softly laughing and shaking her head at how silly she was being. She was proving right then how dumb she was by not knowing anything. "Oh well. It is what it is."

She glanced over at Orgailian and found he was moving to another egg but already looking pale and exhausted. He would probably have to leave after that egg if they wanted to avoid too lengthy of a lecture from Rh'us. Mylorah contemplated getting another egg in for herself but she didn't want to make her brother wait longer than needed so she moved a little closer to him to wait--and maybe catch him if he collapsed. She wanted to check on Zory but trusted Zelana to watch over him as she didn't want to shift her focus from Orgailian as that would be her luck. One quick peek elsewhere and she'd miss her patient struggling.

Ulliendis grinned as the dragonet tried to mess with him about his theory. Spooooky, indeed. But no, he didn't really think they were all drugged. It was his best theory outside of actually believing the dragons were powerful enough to make a connection through the shell but he didn't fully believe it. With the dragon plague and the Weyrs being left empty for so long, The Halls of Harper and Healer had ransacked the Weyrs for all the information they could gather. Unless the dragonriders were clever enough to take all evidence of their psychedelic drugs with them or the Masters of the Halls locked it away, nothing had ever been shown to back it up. But he had been taught to look at problems and puzzles from all sides and that was what he did with the befuddling eggs.

Echoing the dragonet's parting, Ulliendis gave the egg another caressing pat. "That was fun, perhaps even educational. Maybe we'll meet again." If he had to Impress, that one seemed like it could be a good match. Likely wouldn't be boring if nothing else and that was important to him. Keeping secrets was also at the top of his list of preferences in a mate of any sort, as well as supportive of his endeavours--even the less savoury ones. He didn't think that was too much to ask for.

In the mood for more connections, Ulliendis looked around the room and spotted lucky thirteen was currently open. He wanted to say he wasn't superstitious but he was a Harper and had a few quirks that were likely viewed as such. The more common ones didn't concern him and that was why he didn't hesitate to meet the new occupant, though he did pose the question to the dragonet as they connected. "Do you think your egg being labeled with a feared number has jinxed you or set you up to work hard and prove them all wrong or made you more powerful or has no influence on you at all?

Mostly, Chalrisoram wanted the Hatching to be over and done with as soon as possible so he could get the fuck out of Benden before he ended up stabbed or burned by oil or some other fucked up shit. So far this round of things seemed focused on Benden, but it had been Telgar where he’d been poisoned before, so really any Weyr was probably as good as another. Didn’t mean every day the Candidates remained in Benden didn’t raise his stress levels more than he liked.

And of course, the more stressed out Chalris got the more prone he was to headaches. Damn poison side effects. Maybe this turn he could get injured in a nice, normal way. Like getting mauled by a dragonet at a Hatching. Much better than poisoning.

Not that I’m asking to be mauled, he thought emphatically at the universe. No injuries for me this turn, thank you very much. Chalris made his way over to an unattended egg and laid a hand on it, gently encouraging it to hatch soon.


egg 2 please! <3
