Re: What's the news? (attn Ok'lin / T'od)

Ok’lin shrugged his shoulders, “just have to hope it doesn’t come to that.  I can’t tell him what to do now.  He grew up as Weyrbrat so it’s not like I can go oh I want you to not do that.”  He frowned a little.  “The more my father,” he said the name with some distaste, “told me to do something the more I dug my heels in.   Besides even if he stands it doesn’t mean he’ll impress.  Either way all I can do is give him advice and be there for him.”  Picking up his klah he gave T’od a salute, “besides that means he’ll have good guidance in people like you yeah?”

T'od concurred. "I guess you can't. It's not like he's not aware of the risks. But... I don't know... I think if I had a child I would prefer them to be in a less dangerous occupation. And of course there's the possibility of ending up dragonless, and only half-alive..." A far-from-cheery thought but one that had to be faced. There were a few dragonless folk around the Weyr and T'od couldn't even begin to comprehend his life without Awsonth in it.

Ok’lin laughed and nodded, “yeah it turned out well for both of us.  I think riders have to be stubborn to deal with a life mate.” He paused and turned serious. “He does know indeed.  I went and saw him after I got scored so he could see the pain.”  He might be on the older side for being a bronze rider but still he had been injured numerous times and had never hidden that from his son.  “He seems to think it’s worth it. I can’t really deny him that.”

T'od quirked an eyebrow, knowing perfectly well that stubbornness could be a genetic trait. After all, he'd got a decent sized dose from his own father. "Well it turned out alright for you, didn't it?" he drawled, flicking a finger at Ok'lin's bronze rider's knot. "But he *does* understand how dangerous it is, right?"

Ok’lin shrugged, “I’m not sure, he seems to be trying ones out but not really settled.  I told him not to rush into anything.”  He laughed suddenly, “he’s still keen on being a candidate, I think he’s stubborn, not sure where he got that from.”  Couldn’t be him never giving up on what he wanted or anything.
