"Shape, that's an interesting word," T'od mused aloud, "It's probably a little more like guidance than shaping. You can't always compel a dragon in the right direction so you have to use persuasion, as a rider, and sometimes downright force of will. I had very little of that with Awsonth, my bronze, but I was lucky - he was a wise old stick right from the get-go. But explaining to the youngsters that they *must* get the dragon to do what we say doesn't always go down well. Most of them are touchy teenagers after all, and with a constant ally by their side some of them think they rule the world. We have to show them, and help them learn, that it's not the case. No-one's more important than anyone else, we all have a part to play." He stopped and blinked in surprise at himself. "Sorry, that was a bit wordy. Too much information at once?" He sighed and smiled at the same time, "Yes, that's right. Usually in a Weyr, from what I understand, the golds are more regular with their risings. Things work a little different here - our golds are very much individuals! Have you ever been in a Weyr during goldflight?"

Ishi waited until he had gotten his food before she replied.  She knew better than to come between anyone and their stomach.  "It must be very rewarding, shaping the young riders." She frowned slighly as she played with her food before taking a bite.  "What do you do if there are no baby dragons?" Tilting her head to show that she was indeed interested in his answer.  T'od was intelligent and funny, a combination that she could see herself getting along with and Ishi was in dire need of friends at the Weyr.  "I haven't been here that long but even I have heard people talking about the Golds only rising recently?" She had no idea how that worked but she knew Gold flights could be...interesting.

"Yes we do," T'od confirmed, "The youngsters go onto the Sands as Candidates, under the guidance and supervision of Candidatemasters. If they Impress they become the responsibility of us Weyrlingmasters, and become Weyrlings." He grinned at her. "Yeah it's busier than I expected it to be too, but I still wouldn't change it." He watched as she fetched herself some things to eat then chuckled at her instruction. "Yes ma'am. And I'm not one of the snippy bronzeriders that insist on being called sir all the time, unless it's one of the youngsters. You're welcome to call me T'od."

Licking her lips she gave him a half smile, “umm so Weyrlingmasters work with the young riders?”  She gave him a sheepish look.  “I’m sorry I haven’t been to that many Weyr placements.”  She wrinkled her nose a little.  “It, being a rider, sounds like it might be a bit busier than I originally thought.”  Ishi was not too proud to admit when she didn’t know something.  She was quick to get her food though, enough to tide her over for the rest of the day. Making her way back she smiled, “go get some food T’od.”  She hesitated over his name as she wasn’t sure if she could just call him that, “or am I meant to be calling you Bronzerider T’od or Sir?”

T'od shrugged. "Not really," he told her, "There's more to being a rider that a lot of folk have no idea about. Like harness repairs, drill charts and paperwork. Plus I'm an Assistant Weyrlingmaster, so when we have young dragonpairs there's just no time for that sort of thing." He thought for a moment. Did he sound lonely? No, surely not, not with Awsonth always there for him. But he swung himself onto a bench and grinned at her, offering her one of the klah mugs. "Go get food, I'll wait here and save our spaces."

Sitting down Ishi watched him get the klah and then gave him a small smile.  “I thought a good looking guy like you would have a heavy social life?”  She wasn’t really flirting just making an observation, or so she told herself.  She had looked at the food but would wait for him to get his before she got hers.  After all he was a rider and needed to eat more than he probably did.

Looking down at Ishixi, T'od gave a firm nod. "Of course, I just meant that getting him sorted comes first. Once he's settled I can eat, and then it's usually straight to bed. I don't have much of a social life."

As they entered the Hall he waved his hand over towards the klah kettles. "Oh don't worry, most of us can't function without it. Shall I get us both some while you have a look and see what you fancy to eat?"

On 23 August 2018 at 11:12, Cassandra <dragonmagic16@...> wrote:

“You do eat before you go to bed right’’ Ishixi frowned, “it’s important you take care of yourself.”  She didn’t mean to lecture or worry about someone she just met but she was a caretaker by nature.  “Well hopefully they have klah.”  That showed him her priority, a klah addict, it all had to do with studying healing growing up.

"Oh I prefer to sleep after a large meal," T'od commented with a grin, "So if we have Fall in the afternoon I skip lunch and don't eat until we're back.

Ishi eyed him then shrugged, "truthfully I just eat whenever I can, you never know when an emergency is going to come in."

T'od liked the fact that she'd snorted instead of a titter or giggle. It made her out to be a woman who knew how to have fun, not just laugh out of politeness or in order to please. "What do you normally have for lunch?" he asked as they progressed. "D'you prefer to eat a big meal now, or later?"

An amused snort came from her as she took his arm, her gaze wandering over him before she snapped it back to the hall in front of her.  Hopefully he didn’t notice the slight flush that touched her cheeks.  Part of her couldn’t help but ponder how many times he had hit his head on his dragon but she wasn’t going to ask because that would be rude.  “Why thank you kind sir.” She smiled up  at him.

Tilting her head she rolled her eyes, then listened with her head tilted to her side.  “Exactly what am I meant to be hearing other than the fact that you probably have rock hard abs…and you are hungry maybe?”  Ishi was so going to get herself in trouble here if she didn’t learn to shut her mouth.  She had a good bedside manner she really did but she also didn’t know when to shut her mouth and he was a bronzer.  Yep he was trouble.

"Ahh now I understand," T'od was definitely amused, "Well no, I'm not hurt. It was a reaction to the collision, that's all. I'm pretty tough." And he thumped his stomach area to prove it. "Wait though... you hear that?" And he thumped his stomach again, waiting to see what her response would be.

She still looked a little dazed. T'od was pretty sure it wasn't his good looks that had shocked her, then her explanation made things plain.

“I’m fine thanks.”  Ishi sighed and flicked her gaze to his knots before she snapped to attention.  Awesome she would have to bash straight into a bronze rider.  From her, albeit, very limited experience around some of the Weyrs she knew you had to be careful around them.  Egos and all that.  Her gaze drifted over him and she shook her head, “sorry Sir, I’m a newly transferred healer. I doubt me running into you would hurt you but it’s a habit.” She stepped out of his way so he could keep going where he was going to. “Umm do you know how I get to the dining hall?

"Yeouch!" T'od rocked back on his heels as he collided with someone. That was always the problem with corridors, there was no easy way to see round corners.

He knew that Turns of riding Awsonth and woodcrafting before that had made him pretty solid. Perhaps not as painful to run into as a wall, but still.

Ishixi sighed as she walked through the corridors.  Apparently, this was MEANT to lead her towards the dining hall but she had an awful feeling that she had made a wrong turn somewhere along the way.  Ishi had only just moved to Arolos Weyr and was still trying to work out where she was going.  She had successfully worked out how to get to her ground weyr to the healers but other than that she was going blind.  Normally she wouldn’t even try and head to the dining hall but she was hungry and she hadn’t made herself anything.

“This is stupid.”  She muttered to herself as she rounded the corner and felt herself running into something very solid.  Well someone very solid.  “I’m so sorry.”  She flushed as she stood back and looked upwards.  Why was everyone taller than her?

Dekel sighed as he walked into the infirmary.  Was it sad that the young candidate knew his way around here? Probably but he had been injured numerous times and well this was just another one.  He hoped it wasn't anything serious.  Not since a gold had finally flown and who knew, maybe he would actually have a chance at impression this time?

Taking a seat the fifteen turn sighed as he sat there, trying to not move too much.

ooc: I'm figuring he fell over and hurt himself.  Nothing major because he wants to stand.  I'm thinking a sprained ankle or knee - something like that.

Nearly anyone would have been missed, but Foreth had a semi-secret soft spot for her granddaughter though their temperaments were vastly different. She waded a little closer, and stretched out her long, red-gold (or previously before the green coating was added) out to have a look.

"Partly," Kassia admitted. "Plus, it means a guard that I can have in my office or weyr or wherever and have privacy."

Eldvyr eyed Cremsden thoughtfully. "I take it that this is not the first time he's bitten you?" He asked mildly. He supposed that it'd never occurred to the other man that he could have found someone to help him with that issue. It would be consistent with what Eldvyr knew of Cremsden's psychological profile.

But this was a dragon weyr and the little blue firelizard was a draconic. It was not an illogical assumption.

Cremsden shook his head. "That's what you get for sharing your weyr with a wild one," he admitted a little grudgingly, not feeling truly in the mood to offer Bitey excuses at that moment. "Better than he was though. It's worse when it's ears."

Razelth sat on the shore nearby, her already green tinged hide proof that she, unlike some, had felt no reluctance at sampling the waters. In fact, in that relationship, it had been Delysia who had been leery. But Delysia was busy and not in a position to intervene, so as far Razelth was concerned, that was as good as granting permission. {{Look!}} She said cheerfully. {{I can make pictures with my tail!}} She announced proudly as she swirled greenish slime across a nearby rock surface with said appendage.

Nekaer wiped the sweat from his forehead onto the upper arm of his sleeve. When one such as himself was a Candidate but did not know very well what sort of work he wanted to do should he fail to Impress – Arolos Weyr was hardly a sea port, after all, so his father's former trade was out of the question – one tended to end up assigned to whatever random chores needed doing, shopped out to each craft in a sort of rotation. At least, Nekaer did. Perhaps they hoped he would find a craft he enjoyed as much as sailing.

Today, he was mucking out stalls, and he had just finished an empty one just next to a fussy mare who made her irritation with Nekaer's presence known. Nekaer assumed, anyway, that this was what all of the fussing was about.

"I know, I know. I'm done now, so you can calm down; I'm leaving."

Sarati loved to fly, even if on Kabelth it could never be for far or long.

Riding a horse wasn't exactly the same, but it was close, and she still remembered and sometimes missed her life as a jockey. She knew that her husband's family didn't approve, so she was often stuck to boring, easy to ride runner when one was needed to go somewhere for ceremony or where Kabelth couldn't easily go, but every once in a while she snuck time to ride a less cooperative runner.

There was a temperamental mare that she liked to ride at the Weyr, a blood bay with the uninspired name of Flame. Sarati managed to secure some free time and headed for the stables.

"It gets worse as it cooks," Kashara piped up and made a face. It wasn't the first time she'd "volunteered" for such things. And by "voluntereed" it meant "They were short on people, someone complained about it in Kassia's direction, and word had come up of some infraction Kashara had been involved with". That Sarati had never been subjected to such things wasn't the point. Kassia liked to pretend that such punishments were keeping things fair.

At least there was some satisfaction at being along side the man who was often Weyrleader or WeyrSecond. And partly she enjoyed that she did know the man.

Feeling grown up, though she far from qualified next to the venerable man, she asked him, "How are you doing?" There was a hint of her mother in her voice, though she wasn't nearly the spitting image Sarati was.

F'gan thought for a moment. "Well I am up quite early. So you will likely catch me here or having breakfast." He stood and moved so that he could point out the Earsten wall of the Weyr, which housed many of the riders. He pointed to his and said, "If I am not at the lake or doning things with my wing, or here painting, then check the dining hall or my Weyr."

He let out a soft chuckle. "I think it's time that I looked into finding a flit."

"As I recall I think we just need to stir it and keep the heat even." Said F'gan joining his assigned group.

Trometh jumped, almost as if he'd been shocked. His first reaction of annoyance quickly gave way however, one just did not disrespect a queen. But that did not mean he had to enjoy things. Trometh heaved a great sigh, and gingerly walked into the green slime. He held his wings up as he waded in, not wishing to feel the slime on them. 

((As you wish, Great One.)) It was clear that while respectful, he much rather would not have been here.

D'vik, watching the scene shook his head at Trometh's attitude. It wasn't often his dragon was so very stubborn. But he was grateful for the queen's help. As D'vik waded out with the bucket of brushes His younger bronze flit Elon took to the skies and hovered over the far side of Trometh from the queen. Unfortunately, Fabio wasn't so bright and was draped down the large man's back, staring at the green slime in fascination. Staring so hard in fact, that he didn't notice how close he was getting to the water, until his little head dipped into it. He jerked it back with a long trail of green slime hanging from his tiny wedge head.

Nearby where Foreth was being so very dignified walking into the water. A tall man, D'vik was arguing with his blue Trometh about getting into the water. 

"Come on Trometh, you know we've all heard it from the healers, the water is safe, and I've not got time to take you somewhere else this time." The man sounded tired, as if he'd made this point more than once already. Sitting on his shoulders were two bronze flits. Ready to help bath their big 'brother'. But Trometh, though he took a couple steps forwards and  looked into the slimy swirls, stopped just short of the water's edge.

((This does not look Right mine. Water should be clear, not green.)) It was clear that the big blue was pouting. He wanted clean water. Sparkling and pure. Not...this.

Foreth stared at the water. It looked gross and surely not up to par for the finicky Queen. She needed a bath and to wallow and this would just not do. As she told Hers over and over and over. The first day things were starting to look bad Kassia gave in and agreed to a trip to their favorite and generally private lake. The next morning Foreth badgered her into a quick trip to the beach. But that afternoon when the demanding gold started her whining all over again, and then temper tantruming (which was always a fun thing for people and dragons around her to endure), Kassia refused to budge. Finally the need to submerge overwhelmed her and Foreth reluctantly headed for the green tinged lake.

Once she was there, Foreth, much like a cat, acted like it was her decision after all and strode head held high into the water, more and more of her sinking below the surface. The sight of the red-gold Queen slowly turning green under the algae was surely a sight.

To Fly Without Wings atten: any at stables/Sarati #attnany

sailyn2
 

Sarati loved to fly, even if on Kabelth it could never be for far or long. She loved the wind in her hair, the power of her lifemate underneath her, the knowledge she could go most anywhere on Pern (though more carefully than most). Riding a horse wasn't exactly the same, but it was close, and she still remembered and sometimes missed her life as a jockey. She knew that her husband's family didn't approve, so she was often stuck to boring, easy to ride runner when one was needed to go somewhere for ceremony or where Kabelth couldn't easily go, but every once in a while she snuck time to ride a less cooperative runner.

There was a temperamental mare that she liked to ride at the Weyr, a blood bay with the uninspired name of Flame. Sarati managed to secure some free time and headed for the stables.
