Well at least he wasn't one of those that dithered getting through the door. That was something at least. And it appeared he didn't beat about the bush, getting right to the point. "Well then," Nayari said, gesturing for him to take a seat as she returned to her own. "Why don't you take a seat and tell me why you want the job."

Re: A little too far ( Ysolde / Desille )

Nutmeg
 

Oh, how she loved her crafting time. Not only did it mean time with her father but Ysolde adored the intricate, precise handling that jewelcrafting required. It suited her perfectionist nature. She was happy as a dragon in sunshine as she bobbed through the tunnels, hair pulled tightly out of her eyes and partially covered with a brightly covered scarf. She had been running errands all morning for her father, scampering back and forth through the tunnels to supply rooms, customers and anywhere in between. She was having the time of her life and later on, would no doubt collapse happily into an exhausted sleep.

She was on her way back from one of the supply rooms to collect some more polish, cleaning solvents, tumbling sand and rags, the large basket tucked safely on her arm. This was one of the larger tunnels that allowed for the carts to be brought in and she enjoyed a little skip, letting her good mood sweep over her.

When the tunnels of the Crafthalls were designed, they were designed with the idea that it would be necessary to draw in carts full of materiel, so they had had the foresight to make the tunnels in this area taller and especially wider to accommodate the necessities that the crafts may need.  What they did not foresee was that a stubborn 2nd pass blue dragon would feel the need to enter them on his own and uninvited.  

He couldn't help it!  There was something inside of him, a primal urge that said, "There is something here that you must find and you must find it NOW!"  He had absolutely no clue what it was but Doryth was determined; more determined than he had been in his entire life, and he was going to... make... it... through!

Lucky for him, he was a 2nd pass blue, which meant that he was considerably smaller in comparison to his 8th pass brethren.  In his own time, Doryth would've been average size, though somewhat on the thinner and more flexible side of the spectrum, which was why he was able to traverse said tunnels.  Because of his wind it was a tighter squeeze than he would've liked, and he hadn't put much thought into how he was going to get out, but... he was almost there!

The blue stopped at the entrance of what he would later be told was the gemcrafting area of the crafthall and pushed his head against the door, trying to get in.

Meanwhile Desille had just finished eating a late breakfast in the Dining Cavern when she realized that Doryth was being oddly quiet.  [[ Love? ]] she queried but received no answer.  Suspicious.  [[ Love!? ]]

{{ I'm here!  Shh, I'm busy, }} he replied.

[[ Busy doing what, my love? ]]

{{ I'm looking for something.  Someone, I think.  I can smell her, but... I can't go any further! }}

Desille started to get a bad feeling, [[ What do you mean you can't go... Where exactly are you, Doryth? ]]  She received a mental image from the blue and the girl's mouth hung open, [[ What... how... why... DORYTH!  Get out of there right this instant! ]]

With waiting a moment more she took off at full speed, recognizing the craft hall from her visits to ther older brother Delowen, a smith.

Re: Housewarming Presents! (Dytha/Cremsden)

"Hah. Lets make a punishment room for them filled with boxes containing Faranth only knows what. Expired numbweed in mysterious jars. Suspiciously stained sheets." Sure, a good amount of them pulled their weight and were content to do what was asked. But there had been more than one that turned up their nose at getting their hands dirty. "You sure they won't mind? I kinda feel like I should be making some sort of list if I'm going to be getting it out of here." It felt an awful lot like cutting a corner, even if what he was saying did make a lot of sense.

The "pshaw" and wave of her hand suggested that she didn't think that would be happening to her any time soon. Maybe in a week. "I'm starting to think they lied to me. There isn't a weyr under all of this. Just more mountains of boxes." She looked around as if wondering where to start first. That was part of the problem, there was so much in the way that she couldn't decide what needed to be done. "I got Ponth's ledge cleared first so she could sleep there. And I managed to get my bed in around that corner." The "weyr" was an unusual shape in that the door entering it entered into a narrow hallway first. The short wall had evidently come down at some point but had then allowed for a smaller cave-like section to be revealed which she was hoping she would be able to put a curtain across in order keep her bed from sight.At some point, she suspected that her "sleeping area" had in fact been some form of adjoining cupboard or similar. It then opened out into a smaller area where the stove could just about be seen in the corner. All being well, there would be just enough room for a couple of chairs and low table. 

Through all of this was a narrow trail that led to the way to Ponth's new ledge and somewhere, somewhere behind all of the rubbish, was a door to what she hoped was a still functioning bathing pool. But at this rate, she had already consigned herself to the possibility that it would be nothing more than a glorified hole in the ground.

"Okay." And this time Cremsden at least appeared to accept that. "Well. If it was literally just now you've probably jarred it, and you've likely got some bruising." He moved to the cupboards, habit making his movements slow, careful and deliberate despite Z'go's protests. If you had someone in a room with you who had just been hurt you minded yourself not to appear threatening. "Honestly, I could give you an exam to make sure nothing is broken but it is unlikely and would be added discomfort to no real purpose so what we'll do is get you some painkillers, write a note to your wingleader excusing you for a few days and if nothing improves within a few days then we'll look at it further."

She understood his point and while she would always resist any kind of transfer away from the Weyr, she had always known it was a possibility. She put some thought into what he was asking her, "I suppose that it would be the other side of the coin.  I have all the practical knowledge but I lack some of the.. theoretical?"

Re: Checking on a Young Queen atten: Kassia/Delysia/Razelth

Kassia was in luck as both Razelth and Delysia were in the Caverns. Delysia had moved some of her things into the small attached living quarters, so that she could spend the majority of her time split between the Caverns and her office. 

At the moment, she was working at Razelth with a stiff brush. Guarding her clutch meant that Razelth couldn't make it down to the lake for her usual bath, so Delysia did the best she could with what she had.

"I was -- oh, I was, wasn't I?" Cremsden said reflectively. "Bought you that awful pink drink." It was the same kind of thing Megin seemed to like so he had figured it would be a hit for a teenage girl. Also it was probably more fruit juice than alcohol so safe enough. "Well. Probably not too young then so let's see what you would need." He gestured to the chair across from his desk, the one with a green and a blue curled up asleep on it. "If you kinda use a file to shoo them off rather than your hands, they probably won't bite."
