Alyx was excited that there was another clutch on the sands, she'd been sure there wouldn't be another one before she had aged out. This was cutting things closer than she would have liked it. But here they were. She'd been a candidate for quite a while at this point and, she watched some of the younger folks with amusement, the bouncing, the eagerness. She remembered them well. But now she was calm. At least on the outside. On the in of course she was still excited. But over time she had overcome the urge to show it quite so much. She was unsure if she would impress a dragon at all, but if she was to, it would be this clutch, everything depended on it. She'd left her flits back at her cot. So she didn't have to worry what they were about right now.
Lerian was so excited, he'd just barely become a candidate when the gold had risen. It had been right after his birthday, the one his brother had missed. He looked about the candidates, looking for him, but couldn't see him from where he sat. Of course his brother hadn't been talking to him much, for a while. He saw some familiar faces, and some that spent more time at their crafts. He didn't know all their names but that was alright. He didn't really have any questions, but decided that one day he was going to bring the gold rider a tray of his special jam cookies that everyone seemed to like so well.
Have fun with any of my characters. Alyx, Lerian (candidates), Vayka (Healer), J'hen, D'vik, Teyra, Cotai (Riders), Rotasta (AWLM)
