IC Date: Month 11 2267 to Month 6 2268
(Turns 7-8 of the 10th Pass)
Please do not go beyond these dates; going back and doing threads in the past is fine, going into the future is not.
Threadfall: Ongoing; intermittent and unlikely to freeze as the weather warms
Following a spectacular flight, Queen Minervath was caught by King Sulith and is now heavy with eggs. A new clutch is on the way, but will it be anything like her last or will this time bring joy and not sorrow?

Meanwhile, the Weyr continues to recover from the disastrous fallout of the first Threadfall of the Turn. Thread was successfully fought, but there were many injuries that brought the fighting strength of the Weyr down. A meeting has been called amongst the Weyr's leadership, Weyrlingmasters and Wingleaders to determine where the weaknesses lie.

In happier news, Senior Queen Kansk and Soldier-King Candesk have laid clutches, and as the eggs have hardened it has become clear that a joint hatching is to be expected.

(This thread is to open up the Weyrwoman position since I am stepping away from SN. I wouldn't feel right blocking it up with my character. Takes place a week or two after the hatching)

Nalini checked the straps on her children and went over the bags probably for the hundreth time. They had started life so fragile, it was hard to believe that they had reached a point that they were able to ride with her. So it was time they met their grandparents and her tribe. She climbed up with a concerned breath, looked to Indilth and passed the image as best she could remember of the place her tribe currently resided.

Something must have gone wrong though, because she never made it to her family and she wouldn't return the Weyr three days later like she was supposed to.

(I am stepping away from SN and don't have the energy or time to run a full hatching. So this is the list of PC/Adoptables I was able to finish for Indilth's clutch. Enjoy. I'll leave the hatching date up to the admin since I can never remember the little rhyme to figure it out. )

Impressed to: Kaede
Inspiration: Spectrum by Boyinaband ft. Cryaotic & Minx
Name: Zerico’lith
Species: Dragon
Caste: Soldier
Fertility: Semi-Fertile - Clutches around 65% of the time, but has only small clutches.
Rank: Weyrling
Hex Code: a20202, 000000, 848484 (Other minor greys/whites would work too)

Talented? Y/N Y
Skill? Y/NN
Talent/Skill information: 1. Pattern Shaping, she innately knows how how to change into all other dragon kin at hatching and will insist on learning several other forms. She can also apply this pattern shaping to others with practice.
2. She can create a bubble where she and those she cares about are safe from outside influences. The bubble of space will block out sound and magic of all sorts. Anyone permitted within the bubble will be stripped of magic or talents used on them and will not be able to use talents within. This includes the talent of Queens to command. Because she feels safer this way, her own talents will remain fully functional. Weapons have to be left outside of the bubble or they will crumble.

Appearance:
[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/kq4uhcctf/Zerico_lith.png"width="600">[/doHTML]

Personality: Zerico’lith’s name is a symbol of her personality. That is to say against the norm and unapologetic for it. She is aware that the formatting of her name is usually solely reserved for dragon ferali. She also doesn’t care because it is her name and no one can take that from her. Right inline with her name, Zerico has other things that she is… less open about. She gets desires outside of her rising cycle and has no qualms with changing into other creatures to satisfy those desires. She also will regularly invite creatures other than dragons to participate in her mating flights. There will be times where she will enlist the help of magic to ensure clutches that result from odd pairings can and do survive. She gets the feeling that other dragons look down on her for this and it makes her question how safe it is to be herself within a Weyr setting. This feeling will lead her to desire to leave the Weyr, but she would only actually do so if Kaede would be happy travelling with her.

Inspiration: Gypsy by Shikra
Name: Ridaliath
Species: Dragon
Caste: Soldier
Rank: Weyrling
Fertility: Not Fertile
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/NY
Skill? Y/NN
Talent/Skill information: Can duplicated any non-living thing, either to fit her rider or in dragon size. Ie: If she likes the scarf you are wearing, she can use her talent to create an exact copy of it for herself.

Appearance:[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/astto8uwz/Gypsy.png"width="600">[/doHTML]

Personality: Ridaliath is a free spirit, going wherever the wind takes her, quite literally, but she will always return home, home being where her rider decides to reside for that night. She has a taste for the finer things, silks, gold, gemstones, fine wines.. Etc.. and has the attitude of what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is mine. Fortunately, she doesn’t need to steal those things of yours that she also considers hers because she can simply replicate them. Her rider will also benefit from this talent of hers and the dragon’s tastes, whether they like it or not, as she will not hesitate to replicate anything she thinks will look good on her rider as well. Ridaliath is fine with travelling alone, but also welcomes company as long as they don’t put a damper on the mood. However, she is not a babysitter and if you choose to travel with her, you better be able to keep up. Things flow off Ridaliath’s back quite easily. She won’t forget wrongs done or kindness shown, but she won’t let the former weigh her down and she will repay the latter in her own time.

Inspiration:Superheroes by The Script
Name: Sinbiath
Species: Dragon
Caste: Scout
Rank: Weyrling
Fertility: Infertile
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/N Y
Skill? Y/N N
Talent/Skill information: In times of great distress, Sinbiath can develop whatever strength is necessary to survive and help those she considers hers to make it through with minimal fall out. For example, though she can’t normally fly well, if her rider were falling from a height that would kill them, she would suddenly be able to fly better than any other dragon until the her rider was safely on the ground. Once the danger has passed, she will go back to her normal self.

Appearance:
[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/4rw4r735v/Sinbiath.png"width="600">[/doHTML]
At first glance, this dragon looks like a normal, albeit small, dragon with white patching over her colors. Upon closer inspection, though, one will notice that her left wing is pure white and that wing is significantly smaller than the other. Because of this size difference, she will never be a strong flyer with the exception of when her talent makes it so. She will also never be any larger than a small officer.
Personality:
Sinbiath is frustrated by her weakened wing but she will never let it show. Instead when anyone mentions it or she finds people staring at her attempts to fly, she will state that she is simply waiting for a good reason to show how well she can actually fly. She has a certain level of pride, but it is hard to forget that she is also a scout. This makes her fight harder to prove herself and claim her rightful place within the Weyr. She is possessive over her Weyr and those within and will do anything to protect them, but her rider comes first and will always come first. She likes to be prepared for any eventuality, not wanting to ever feel helpless no matter what happens. To that end she will happily take over the duties of acquiring and stockpiling supplies. She never does anything halfway and is loath to accept help even when she needs it because it only feels like it emphasizes her weakness.

Inspiration: Down by Matt Kearney
Name: Surirakausth
Species: Dragon
Caste: Officer
Rank: Weyrling
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/N Y
Skill? Y/N N
Talent/Skill information: Can see into the heart of a person where there is even the smallest seed of love and goodness, and encourage that seed to take root and grow. It is up to the person to continue to nurture that seed, but Surirakausth can give it a boost to get it going.

Appearance:
[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/66xpfxreb/Rainbowpalmetto.png"width="600">[/doHTML]
Fully scaled, his carbuncle is actually the ridges running down his back. Each ridge is a piece of raw fluorite in the color displayed above for that particular area.
Personality:
Surirakausth is a very friendly and optimistic dragon. He sees the best in everyone and believes that even those who have made mistakes in the past should be given at least one more chance. Sometimes that is all they need to let the true good shine inside them. However, he is not totally naive and won’t continue giving chance after chance to prove that you are worth his time and trust. Surirakausth is happy to have a conversation with someone as long as that person is being thoughtful and sincere. He doesn’t much care for idle small talk. As far as physical work, while he is most certainly not a lazy dragon and will prefer to be working if there is something that needs done, he is not one of those that is likely to overwork himself. In fact, he will pull his rider away from the forge sometimes just so they can go fly or do something together that isn’t well.. Work. Surirakausth also believes that everyone needs love and everyone just showed the smallest amount of love to each other, it would make a huge difference on Pern and relations between Holds and Weyrs and bandits etc..

Inspiration:Dance with the Devil by Breaking Benjamin
Name: Lesaritesirath
Species: Dragon
Caste:King
Rank: Weyrling.
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/N Y
Skill? Y/N N
Talent/Skill information: Can speed himself up fast enough that it looks like time stops around him for up to five minutes. The world around him will still be moving at normal speed but he will be moving fast enough that each second becomes minute for him, allowing him to say, respond to thread that is about to hit one of his wingmates before it can ever land. This skill is exhausting and can only be used for combined 40 minutes a day. Training can extend this time and so can talent amplifying and or energy transfer talents, to a maximum of 2 hours per day. When used in short succession, there is cumulative 10% chance that he will over exert himself and lose consciousness. In order to avoid this penalty, he would need to wait a minimum of 5 minutes between uses.

Appearance:
[doHTML]<"img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/42dceuac3/Devil.png"width="600">[/doHTML]

Personality: Lesaritesirath has a very blunt and straightforward take on life, and death for that matter. He sees death as an inevitability and the probability is that he will fall to thread since his main purpose is to fight thread. He accepts this and that acceptance frees him of worries that would otherwise get in his way as he fought thread, ultimately making him a better fighter. He sees fight thread as a dance with death and every time he flies away still intact he has won their dance. He views most challenges that could result in death this way, actually, never truly expecting to come out the other side, but at the same time never relinquishing his life without a fight. He has a strong sense of duty and dedication to his Weyr and those that fight in his wing in particular. He will do his best to protect them as if they were his own rider, but his view on death extends to them as well. If one falls during the dance, in was just the inevitability catching up to them. Their death dance has come to an end and they will be honored with the keen and mourned as is appropriate, but he will not dwell on the loss. In fact, the only one that falls outside this logic is his own rider. His rider cannot and will not die before he does. He takes up the death dance so that his rider need not have to.

Inspiration:Pompeii by Bastille
Name: Perinorath
Species: Dragon
Caste: Knight
Rank: Weyrling
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/N Y
Skill? Y/N N
Talent/Skill information: Perinorath has a form of shared second sight that enables him to pull himself and up to two other back in time up to 24 hours and show the events play out from that point forward. The whole thing will really only last up to 24 minutes, but the full 24 hours will feel like it has passed for the people in the vision. As a side effect of these trips back in time, he sometimes gets visions of major events that will happen within 24 days of the trip.

Appearance:

Personality: Perinorath is a pretty easy going dragon and does not easily shake. When perturbed by an event or situation he will take breath, close his eyes and go back to a moment that steadies him and brings him peace or joy. Then he will address what needs to be addressed. Peri tries very hard to be optimistic even in the most dire of situations. While he can’t always succeed at this, he is very good at taking a step back and figuring out how best to approach a situation to get the best out come. Some attribute this to his talent, but in reality he just slows down to look at the big picture as well as the smaller details. The way he sees it everything could potentially be a danger or cause harm, but if take a moment think and plan, you can come out on top every time.

Name: Osaverith
Species: Dragon
Caste: Knight
Rank: Weyrling
Hex Code:

Skill? Y/N N
Talent/Skill information: Can do anything he believes that he can, even that which is or seems otherwise impossible.

Appearance:
[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/systw2s9f/Osaverith.png"width="600">[/doHTML]
Mutation: He has a pair of Rams horns.

Personality: Osaverith is a very stubborn and optimistic dragon. He enjoys a challenge and is determined to finish whatever he starts. He believes that if he just tries hard enough, he can do anything he sets his mind to. Once he decides on something, not even his rider can convince him to give up. He is fiercely loyal and devoted to his rider and any others who earn his respect, but will always think less of those that give up on things too easily. Too easily to him is anytime before they’ve literally passed out from exhaustion or become too injured to keep going. Even then, he would expect them to be right back at it as soon as they recovered. He doesn’t see problems around him ever. Instead he sees obstacles to be removed or challenges to be met. He will always dream big and he will put in the effort necessary to see his dreams to fruition.

Name: Velniath
Species: Dragon
Caste: King
Rank: Weyrling
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/N Y

Talent/Skill information: Has the ability to temporarily paralyze up to three targets. The more targets he uses the ability on, the less time it will last. This talent can be amplified by those with the ability to do so.

Appearance: [
[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/elcln6nw3/Velniath.png"width="600">[/doHTML]


Personality: Arrogant and entitled, this dragon has very few redeeming qualities. He hatches thinking that the world owes him something and he’s ready to claim it. As he matures, this thought process will apply to females and their flights as well. He will chase after anything that catches his eye and is not afraid to force his way into a win. He’s got an odd fascination with others’ pain and suffering, and will sometimes inflict such pain just so he can see how things play out. If someone is in need of help, he is more apt to sit and watch what happens than summon anyone to their aid. The one exception to this is his rider. We did mention redeeming qualities and he does have one or two. He will have a handful of people that he is loyal to. That loyalty runs deep and while he can’t be said to treat them with respect necessarily, he will always be there if he is needed by them. He is also very strong in battle and good at fighting thread as long as he is in the sky. That said, ground crew is a bad assignment for him as he might “accidentally” miss a burrow to see what happens. During the time he must be grounded because he is too young to fly, it’ll be best to keep him on firestone duty.

Name:Obnirsorith
Species: Dragon
Caste: Soldier
Rank: Weyrling
Fertility: Infertile
Hex Code:
Talented? Y/N Y

Talent/Skill information: More of a curse, this talent repels kings, making them uninterested in flying her and really only interact professionally with her. Some may befriend her, but none will ever take any more interest in her than that.

Appearance:
[doHTML]<img src="https://s19.postimg.cc/u6tx75f9v/Obnirsorith.png"width="600">[/doHTML]

Personality: Obnirsorith is flirty soldier who likes attention, but she is also not completely dim witted. She has very good pattern recognition skills and will be a good thread fighter because of this. She will be good at accounting for sudden wind changes as well. However she has one major weakness. She wants nothing more than to catch the eye of a king. She will at times set her sights on a specific king, but will always realize in the end that they have no interest and move on to a new target. She all too aware that kings do not join her flights and though she’ll take another caste as a mate, she will sulk and obsess over this for weeks afterwards. She will try desperately to figure out why, but never find a satisfactory answer unless she seeks the help of someone who can read talents. Even then she may deny that could be it.

Personality: Tends to feel the weight of world is on his shoulders even though no one else really looks to him for anything. He is scared of heights and flying and because he doesn’t believe that he can is safe too, he really can’t. All it would take to allow him to fly would to get him past this fear and to believe he could. This would activate the inborn talent of dragons to be able to fly, but the fear is so deep that it will take a lot to get past it.

Personality:Arwath has big heart and is very optimistic. He believes that everything happens for a reason and puts a person right where they need to be. This doesn’t keep him from wishing that he could take everyone else’s burdens and keep others from having to struggle through life. He does what he can to help, but is practical and knows not to give so much of himself that he can’t take care of his own needs and problems. He may be a bit of a dreamer, but he is still a level headed officer in the end and has the ability to lead a wing or even a Weyr if he can catch the senior queen.

So I have decided that the dragons are going to be run through a hunger games sim to decide the winner. I will run the sim 5 times and the dragon who wins the most of those 5 will win the flight. If no dragon wins more than once, I will run the the sim until a winner is determined. If there are not enough males to fill the slots, I will fill any extras with names of males who have a better IC chance of winning.. If there are too many males for the number of slots, I'll change it to a round robin format.

So to that end, if you have a male who would be chasing Indilth, post here! I will start running Sims the first week of July. We should know the winner fairly quickly.

Also, I will need candidates for this clutch. So, if you have a candidate you want to possibly Impress, post them here as well.

No one would know the eggs were there if Cuni were not curled up of the mound that concealed, hissing at anyone who got within sight and snapping at anyone who dared to come to close. They were well guarded, well protected. The other pets of Tiske's bondnet alternated between bringing her food and watching over and caring for Tiske and Iced River in the infirmary.

Cuni looked up from where she was laying as Tisth entered the sands, making a noise in her throat. Where had he been? He was supposed to be helping her keep larger dangers away from her clutch... Of course she couldn't begrudge him a visit to his bonded. It was about that moment the sands started shifting and churning underneath her. Clearly the eggs had decided that it was time.

With another noise to Tisth, she slipped off the mound and curled around it instead. Tisth eyed the Precious mohark. He knew she wanted to keep all the babies, but his bonded would want them to find good homes.

Cuni's clutch hatches on the Sands. Come if you want a chance to bond a mohark and remember to bring food for the little ones, as mine is not in a condition to provide it for you. He announced to the Weyr. Cuni glared at him, hissing her displeasure, but he knew that she would get over it once the babies had bonded and she was no longer their care taker. Then her motherly instincts would settle.

[Day 20. Month 5. 2268]

Cereceth watched anxiously as Villanara pushed herself up off the bed, with the help of an apprentice at her side. The girl was still so pale and she shook with the effort of standing. Her eyes didn't lift from where they watched her feet until the healer gave her gentle remind that she would need to look where she was going.

One hand came to rest gently on Cereceth's side, using her as a guide and crutch.

That's good. Go slow, Cereceth said gently, keeping her mind-voice soft.

Villanara blinked, staring at her dragon for a moment as if she didn't quite comprehend the words. Then a soft, tentative smile touched her lips. Thank you, Cece, she responded as she took very small and shaky step, her grip on Cereceth tightened to keep her from falling. One. She counted gritting her teeth. She felt like she was going to collapse already and she was still right next to the bed. One step was so hard. She sucked in a deep breath and shifted to take the next step. Two Sweat dotted her forehead. Three Her knees started to buckle. No too soon. She needed.. Fo.. her legs gave out before she finished the fourth step. The apprentice was there to catch her, but Cereceth slipped her tail around to brace her rider anyways.

The healer helped her back to her bed, smiling and congratulating her on her "progress". One step more than the day before. Not much progress at all. They had been at this for two weeks and she had made so little progress.

Cereceth thanked the healer for their time and listened to the instructions for Villanara until their next session. Once they were gone, Villanara pounded a fist against the bed beside her. Two weeks and I can barely manage three steps.. Will I never be able to leave this bed?

You will, dearheart, you will. Remember that you have been unconscious for many months. Your body has wasted away during that time. You just need to rebuild it. That's all.

That's not all! This fake leg.. I'll never get used to it, Cecerceth. I could have made that fourth step if not for.. She gestured at the distinct lack of the lower part of her right leg beneath the blankets. That.

You don't know that and even if so, make allowances for yourself. The loss of a limb is not a small thing. You will adjust.

Villanara closed her eyes and leaned back into her pillows. Part of her knew Cereceth was probably right, but she couldn't manage to hold onto that hope right now.
