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.

Ordinarily, the abrupt and unannounced summons from one's dragon filled one with nervousness and worry-- and with Vitae, it was no exception. She'd been dozing, bored, over some wingrosters the weyrling class had been assigned to read as an example of potential wingleadership duties, when Merrivalth's voice had broken through her thoughts, Vitae! Come Quickly! The weyrbowl!! She hadn't registered any specific fear, but it was certainly excited, an energetic warble, and so she was on her feet and running to the bowl in minutes, the fake rosters scattered behind her.

She'd expected to see some kind of drama-in-progress, but what she actually found was.. not nearly that. Well, perhaps drama, but the cute kind of drama.

Either Merrivalth had found puppies or puppies had found him, because the young knight was along the ground, and puppies were crawling all over his forepaws and shoulders and the fronts of his wings. Some were gnawing with their baby puppy teeth, but the dragon's hide was tough enough that he didn't feel it-- nevertheless, he'd gently and theatrically flop in response to the occasional nibble, playing with them in a way that came very naturally to him. Puppies! he announced to his rider, cheerfully. Many puppies!

"Whose are they?" Vitae asked, letting her heart slow down as she approached a bit more slowly, looking at them both curiously and dubiously.

I don't know; I found them out here. I think they may've escaped their kennels.

Records-room duty was typically a calm and boring one, but Qayin didn't mind it-- it suited his interests perfectly, because mostly it meant being left alone with nothing but the weyr's repository of written knowledge, and he could go through it at his leisure. There was usually some sort of menial task to be done, but Qayin was suited to these tasks and so they went fairly quickly; sorting and organizing and filing new records, updating crucial lists with information assembled in disorganized memos, reorganizing certain shelves to allow for the inclusion of new information, occasionally helping a rider find something they needed but didn't have time to pull themselves-- that sort of thing.

That's what Qayin was expecting, anyway, when he opened the door of the room-- what he found was something altogether different.

Chaos. Everywhere. Books and papers and everything strewn alongside. Very solid boxes dislodged, their contents scattered. He froze in the doorway. "How..?"

Igrahneth, behind him, raised her head on her neck and blinked into the room. Oh. he said, her purring voice low in dismay, That is upsetting. What do you think happened?
