#green Let Us Run A-muck! Att: Kel/Gavroth #green

Jerzy Tobin
 

When word went around that the lake was now a very green color, and
that the cause of it was mucky algae - harmless as far as could be
told - well, it was bound to draw the attention of the weyrbrats.
What kid didn't like the chance to play in something that would
probably get him at least a bit dirty, and that the adults would
otherwise try to keep them out of? And Ataylan was no exception.

Already there were dragons swimming in it, some more enthusiastic
looking than others, some with their riders alongside them. The boy
stopped short of the water's edge, where a smallish blue dragon and a
boy who looked not much older than himself were also looking at the
scummy water.

Food or not, Almira didn't want to look at the thing again, for fear of gagging again. "It was a kitten. What if it was someone's pet?"
"Then someone wasn't doing a good job looking after it," Phyllia
stated, getting some control over her nerves. She had no intention of
looking at that *thing* again, but at least she wasn't screaming
again. "More likely it was a feral thing from the stables."

Still. Definitely not something pleasant to wake up to.

"I know they brought in a bronze rider who got hurt fairly good on a
giant needlethorn tree," Lesal mused softly. He hadn't been the only
one shocked by the size of those thorns, and the rider in question was
said to be very, very lucky indeed. "Might be you could get that
healer of yours to go check on him?"

Lerian grinned at Kel. "No offense meant, I just know sometimes when it's really important a dragon will do something to help their rider, even if the rider doesn't want it." At this point Lerian's second flit caught up with him,  on either shoulder were a grown bronze and a tiny hatchling blue. "What can we do to get them good and distracted? There's a real nice redfruit tree not too far from here, I think we can make it if they aren't looking."

Then Lerian turned to the bronze flit on left shoulder, after a moment asked Kel "Will Gavorth cover for you a bit, or tell on you? Cause I think we can use a distraction." Then he turned back to Lesal, "What do you think, between the two of us can we get him out for a walk about?"

Lesal looked from one boy to the other, then over to the healers, and
then back to the boys.  The one did look like he was still recovering
from something, and had probably been sent along for the fresh air.
And besides, no kid liked being cooped up while recovering, so this
was probably a good solution to keeping him from going stir crazy.
And a little walk wouldn't hurt him, if he had him and the other boy
to help, right?

"I think so?" Lesal said, just a bit hesitant, but willing to jump in
regardless.  "Wouldn't want to go too far, but a walk would be okay, I
think."


"Of course Gavroth wouldn't tell!" Kel's returning whisper was indignant at that. "He's my friend, not some awful sneak!"

"Faranth knows, to be honest, I rarely do," Cremsden admitted with an apologetic shrug. "They hang around with Bitey, they show up for meals, they're usually around at bed-time because they've decided our bed is more comfortable than sleeping outside -- beyond that I haven't a clue what they get up to."

"Hmm," she said thoughtfully. This might be a bit trickier than she thought. "If you've checked around the lake, could they have gone looking for food elsewhere?" Food, sun and more food was usually the system of priorities in any flit's brain. But where would a flightless flit go? How could he go? Silently she pushed the request to Bobbin and Cairn that they took to the air, and in turn, Bobbin gave the same instructions to Aaru. The gold jumped from Tyne's shoulder where she had settled and Cairn could be seen in the air too, the bronze and gold making wide, looping circuits.


They weren't lazing where the sun fell on the rocks, nor were they amongst those diving for fish. It took good eyesight to finally spot the green squeezing into what looked to be a hole -- a tunnel of some type?

Ishkana paused before answering. He was trying to be professional about this, and it was something she would have to learn how to be as well. She lifted her chin. "I would like a female present if one is available, but if not that's okay." she told him with dignity. Just so he wouldn't think she was being awkward for the sake of it.

"Should be easy enough to find someone," Cremsden said. "Never worry about asking." That was gentle, but firm. "Perhaps in a Hold where there are less of us around it might be an issue but around here if you want someone else in, you ask. Someone says no, then you start shouting."

Tareg’s hand reaches out to grab two meat rolls, one slipping up his sleeve while the other was nibbles on. He eyed the pair suspiciously. It wasn’t like he could run, so he may as well just put up with whatever they were going to do. 
He stayed could tight, his whole body tense- which did nothing to make his ankle any less sore. 

"The father." Much as Cremsden might appreciate the help reassuring the kid there were other jobs that needed doing. He nodded towards the door to remind Ishkana. "Go talk to him, good girl."

Re: Here we go again (Dekel/Cremsden)

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.

The problem with being a Healer apprentice is that when you were actually injured people still assumed you were there to do your job. Dekel might be DragonHealer rather than Healer but he was still familiar enough for Cremsden to glance twice at him as he went to see how the queue looked.

"You'll be in hot water if Master Larsin catches you sitting down," he observed. "They're busy today."

"Alright. Sounds good. I already looked around, didn't see  any signs of anything dangerous." Not that he knew all there was to know about dangerous. He was just a kid, and hadn't spent much time out in the wilds. But Sandy was happy, and hadn't reported anything, and Lerian trusted the bronze flit a lot. He reached into his pocket, and carefully removed the still sleeping Star, and set him down next to his sister. The tiny blue blinked twice at the sudden chill, but then wiggled in closer to his sister and laid his little wedge shaped head across her back and with a sigh went back to sleep.

As Lerian headed towards the cliff face, Sandy flew lazy circles around the boy's head. Lerian stood there for a moment, examining the rock in front of him, before he started up. Sandy landed a bit above the boy's head, and hopped from spot to spot as the boy climbed. Everything was going smooth, but then Lerian got to the waterfall. This part would me more tricky, the rocks were wet, and slick.

Trometh sighed deeply as he settled into the water. The younger of his rider's flits settled on his head cheeping in a sympathetic manner. Fabio, still clinging to D'vik's shoulder now had a greenish head, though the rest of him was clean so far. Not that it would last, not with Fabio. 

D'vik himself wasn't too happy about being green either, but one did what one had to. He watched the queens sloshing around and patted his large blue on the shoulder saying "See Trometh, you aren't alone. Looks like everyone will be green."

Trometh simply grunted at his rider, though when Razelth splashed some of the gunk up on a rock, despite himself he was intrigued and watched the show. While he didn't see the 'dragon' in the muck, the smaller blob did indeed look like a fish. ((That is a nice fish Razelth. It is very pretty.))

Kenzia wasn't the only one with blushing cheeks and Ysolde found herself giggling coyly. The brownrider was very handsome and his brown was such an unusual shade of brown that she couldn't help but stare at him. Already her juvenile mind was conjuring up fantasies of flying away into the sunset with this rider and his dragon that was the perfect shade of amber brown, a perfect match for a jewelcrafter's daughter....

Snapping herself out of it as Kenzia spoke, Ysolde's red cheeks became darker. "Uhm... I don't really know either..." she admitted after several long seconds. With a light hearted smile, B'nnet came to the rescue. "Never fear young ladies, we all have to climb a dragon for the first time. Verizoth will get himself nice and low, then you just need to climb up onto his extended forearm."

As if on cue, the brown hunkered down, almost flattening himself against the ground with one limb stretched out. "Now then," B'nnet said, "Are we going to flip a mark or is someone going to volunteer?"

Kenzia could not stop the bright blush that spread across her cheeks at his word even if she tried.  "A pleasure to meet you Sir.  He is beautiful, your dragon." She said with her eyes widened at the sight of him.  She hadn't been around that many dragons and he was such a unique shade of brown.  She needed to sketch him one day if she could ever find him again.  She smiled and looked back at Ysolde then waved her forward, "do you want to go first? Because I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to mounting a dragon." She confided to the other candidate.

IC: "Nope!" Ysolde said cheerily as she began to lead the way towards a brownrider she had spotted was yet to be laden with adventurers. "Lets try this one!" Plus his dragon, with its strange shade of golden brown and peculiarly long headknobs didn't seem to be as huge as some of the others and that was still a comfort. Ysolde was still getting used to the idea of being so close to dragons. It was one thing to see them as specks in the sky, but something else to see them dwarfing the space in front of you.

B'nnet spotted the two Candidates approaching him and affected a sweeping bow as they arrived. "M'ladies," he crooned, smooth as butter. He had been looking forward to mingling with the Candidates and Verizoth had been too. It took him back to good memories of his own Candidacy, with some exceptions. "Brownrider B'nnet at your service, ferryman and general lackey to cater to your every whim."

Behind him, Verizoth let out a rumble that sounded a lot like a chuckle and turned his head towards Ysolde and Kenzia, his eyes whirling a bright shade of happy blue at them both.

"I've never been on a dragon before, I'm not sure if I'm excited, terrified... or a bit of both!" She giggled and there was definitely a slight nervous pitch to it.

"Have you got everything you need? If so, we can go and join the ones waiting to mount up."

She didn't want to get her hopes up when she saw the girl making her way towards her. Ysolde didn't even realise she was holding her breath until she let it out in a whoosh of air. It was reassuring to see that the girl looked about as awkward as she felt. This went against her principles on so many levels. Normally, she preferred to sit in the corner, quietly feeling everyone out and then making a decision from there. This felt much too.. disorganised.

Never the less, it was a relief for someone to have answered her literal call and she smiled in relief. "I'm Ysolde," she said, swinging her bag up onto her shoulder. "You're the first, which means by my reckoning, you get first dibs."

She didn’t want to push her way in but she also knew that if she didn’t get out more she was going to end up much more lonely than she was now.  She needed friends and this was one way to do it right?

When no one replied directly to her post, Ysolde tried to quell the disappointment and told herself that people probably just hadn't been paying attention. Instead, she trotted along to the main meeting point. She really wanted to go out on this adventure but at the same time, didn't want to lie to her father and go out on her own. Not to  mention, that just wouldn't be any fun at all.

Finding the gathered troops, flanked by various seniors, Crafters and Candidatemasters, Ysolde decided to be brave and just go for it. Cupping her hands around her mouth, she shouted over the group. "Anyone want to team up and go searching together?"

She had no idea what they were even meant to be looking for but maybe the Healers would fill them in on that. She had heard someone say something about numbweed and other plants that the Healers use, but her knowledge about plants was about as comprehensive as fresh snow before someone walked on it. In other words, blanker than a new slate.

When she had told her father that she had signed up to go on this exploration to the ruins with the Healers, he had been less than enamoured with the idea.Even less so when he decided that the Candidates were going to be allowed to practically run riot. Not true, of course, but that was fatherly paranoia for you.

Eventually, after sending a stern letter to Nayari enquiring about the matter, Ysolde had been given his blessings to go. Sort of. But only under strict instructions that she was to find a buddy and that she wasn't going to be going ANYWHERE without them. But it was a compromise at least. After the lecture about keeping covered up, carrying plenty of water and wearing a hat.

The afternoon before they were supposed to set off, Ysolde set up a notice on the main message board at the front of the Barracks. There was no way that it wasn't going to  be seen by at least someone, you had to pass it every time you left the Barracks.
-
Looking for an adventurer!
Are you joining the Healer hunt?
Looking for someone to stick with?
Meet me here after breakfast tomorrow!

No, it wasn't exactly award winning prose, but hopefully it would catch someone's eye. Truth be told, the more she thought on it, the more she thought that having someone to go with was probably the best thing to do. Didn't someone mention a wher attack the last time?

So there she was after breakfast, her bag packed with all the essential supplies she could think of, waiting nervously by her notice. Well, if push came to shove, she would just join the group and hope for the best, but hopefully it wouldn't come to that.

Ishi listened quietly as he talked, a smile shaping her lips as she looked at him. “Oh not to wordy.  It’s good to hear someone so passionate about their work especially when they are helping to guide the next group that is meant to protect us.”  She smiled softly.  She had no idea about the politics of the dragon colours.  One day she would learn it but in truth her job was to treat all people the same it didn’t matter what they did inside the Weyr. 

 

“Oh… no I wasn’t here during the goldflight,” she shook her head, “I have never been around during one. I hear they can get pretty…ahh.. intense.  Does your dragon chase?  That’s the right word right?”

"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.

"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. And of course Awsonth gets scrubbed before I eat. That pretty much does for me."  He sniffed the air as they were just outside the Dining Hall. "Let's go see what they've got for us, eh?"

Ishi eyed him then shrugged, "truthfully I just eat whenever I can, you never know when an emergency is going to come in." She frowned at her own words, that made her sound like she was always working, which she was, but it was only because she didn't know anyone.  "Lunch is normally larger because it's harder to sleep for me on a larger meal but it depends on shifts and stuff."

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.

"That's it exactly!" T'od told her good-humouredly. "Please allow me, T'od of bronze Awsonth, to escort you to your meal.

He treated Ishi to an outrageous wink, even as he offered her his arm.

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.

Ishi groaned, “no I meant checking you for injuries.  I’m normally steady on my feet.”  She grinned at him, “my name is Ishixi, but people call me Ishi,” she licked her lips and a flush touched her cheek.  “You don’t have to go with me Sir, I mean, I’m sure you have better things to do.”  She paused and tried to not look up at him.  He was good looking but she wasn't going there.

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. "So you run into people on a regular basis do you, journeyman?" he mused with a raised eyebrow, although the grin on his face indicated he wasn't annoyed. "By all means, as I'm headed there myself. It's this way." And he bowed to the healer, gesturing for her to walk in the direction he was originally going.

“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? I seem to have gotten myself turned around.”  Maybe he would help her before he left.

"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. The someone apologised and he looked down, seeing a woman. "Hey, my fault as well. The glows are a bit dim here aren't they?" He grinned at her; she didn't look familiar. "Are you alright?" 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?

"Oh, they can," Cremsden agreed. "And from what I understand he swears at them sharding well when he's in the mood to." He clicked his tongue at the annoyed little blue and offered him his uninjured hand. Still muttering to himself Bitey grumbled his way towards it and scrambled heavily up Cremsden's arm.

"When he started it was all fear and fury," Cremsden explained. "Wasn't it, lad? And we sorted that with time, and a bit of help from one of the Impressed gold firelizards, and that part's resolved well enough. Now it's just when he gets pissed off - and there isn't any amount of explaining and communication that fixes pissed off." And apparently even when bitten, Cremsden was inclined to cool down about it fast enough that there was no reason for him to stop.

Eldvyr winced in not entirely feigned sympathy. He'd had a patient with biting tendencies once. It hadn't been one of the finer moments of his long career. Though to this day, Eldvyr still could decide what had been worse, the patient himself or his shrill voiced sister.

"I've been told that dragon can communicate with firelizards." He observed neutrally. "Even the wild ones."

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.

((What are you making?))

Razelth paused and, as if it'd only just then occurred her that she ought to be making *something*, leaned forward to peer at the now green-splattered rock. {{I think that's a dragon there.}} She pronounced confidently, pointing one claw at one green blob. {{And that there can be a fish.}} She added, pointing at another, slightly smaller green blob.

"Partly," Kassia admitted. "Plus, it means a guard that I can have in my office or weyr or wherever and have privacy." Or at least she could when she didn't leave Brogan behind, which she'd been known to do. The guards, too. That wasn't the point. "If you're really interested, I can take you to Callamere and we can talk to Revai or Athesta. Do you have a color in mind?"
_._,_._,_
"I haven't really decided." Delysia replied thoughtfully. "Maybe...a brown? Something smart enough to be an effective guard, but not too high strung." She smiled ruefully. "I've already got all the high strung I could ever want."

As if to puncture her point, little gold Aoede chose that moment pop into existence in front of the two women. She chittered an indifferent greeting before gliding down to perch on Delysia's right shoulder.
