A Fellow Wher Handler atten: atten Larenne/Kassia

sailyn2
 

Kassia was out on her morning walk with Brogan when she spotted another woman with a blue wher coming her way. She recognized the knots as a wherhandler, but stopped a short distance to give her a bit of space. Even though they had all the rules and wherhandlers were supposed to have the best trained whers, she never entirely trusted how whers were going to treat each other on first meeting. Brogan was wary, but mostly because he was on guard. She also felt his curiosity for the non-bronze wher.


"Good morning," she said.

"Thanks," she said. "I only have so many hands and I need one to ride down which means I can spend more time with you."

 

She waited until the blanket was settled before starting to set out food.

"Wine as requested. Sandwiches, orange roots, and bubbly pies for desserts."


Re: Sacharrine Saturated Nightmare (Talena, and CM Nayari)

Nayari hadn't expected the response and looked a little taken aback, surprise registering on her face. "I'm please to hear that. Unfortunately some might consider me a little hard handed. But I have the best interests of all the Candidates in mind." She had taken the empty seat, primly crossing one knee over the other, ever the image of a Lady. But appearances mattered, even when you were as anal about it as she was. "Some of our... more established Candidate might try to push boundaries but they are still bound by the same rule as those that arrived yesterday. They are not exempt from any reprimand that their behaviour might cause, nor do they get to laze about just because they think they've been here long enough to know it all." Nayari' voice was firm, but not unkind. 

"I am a firm believer that hard work, good structure and appropriate reprimand builds character and gives focus. We have a very important role here and with the right foundation, anyone can thrive." She paused, "My door is always open should you have any questions as well. I welcome feedback from my Candidatemasters. As well as ideas and their concerns. I want to know what they've seen that caused alarm. What they've heard about that they think could be a good idea."

The more Nayari spoke, the deeper and stronger Talena's respect and admiration grew. This woman got it, she was speaking words that Talena herself held close to her heart and tried to teach herself. Nodding with a gesture to sit, Talena sat herself while still listening. She took a slow breath when her Master finished and allowed a little smile. 

"My land, I don't think that I've ever heard anyone put my deepest beliefs into words so perfectly. Candidate Master, I'm very glad to be in your service now. I think that maybe I just witnessed an off moment today and used that to judge all of the Candidates here. I was clearly wrong if this is your stance. I'm very eager to see just what these kids and my new coworkers can do together."

Re: Reserving Her Opinionatten: Kassia/S'yrell

"Let's just say I've had various times over the turns where I've had a lot of times on my hands." She shrugged. "Tell me, what was your favorite thing of Fort? And what are you looking forward to out here?"

 

She looked out to the water where Foreth was back in her favorite spot. She'd just shooed a blue away who should have known better, but who had probably thought he could get away unnoticed due to his size.


Re: These Little Moments (ATTN: Yiyu/Tyne)

Nutmeg
 

Everywhere had felt too small. Too boxed in. Today had been a claustrophobic day. She needed air. And the brood needed oiling. It hadn't taken more than a heartbeat to decide where she was going to go and she had made her way up to her secret spot where the faire was already waiting for her, she could hear them calling as she had approached up the tunnel. 

She had started at first to see Yiyu, but recognition touched her eyes and a smile curled her lips. "You get the best view of the sunset from here." Well, maybe not the best in the whole Weyr, but Tyne was more than a little biased.

On Sun, Apr 5, 2020 at 7:17 PM Jessica Freise <loriendarenya@...> wrote:
They were quiet little times, these trips she took up near the rim. She hadn't seen Tyne here, but had always made sure to leave the space clean no matter if she carried a kitten with her or a stack of books. This evening, she was watching the sunset, tiny black kitten lost in her mass of hair, purring softly.

A footstep scraped against stone. She turned, smiled hesitantly. The flock of flits foretold whom she would see soon enough.

Re: A little too far ( Ysolde / Desille )

Nutmeg
 

If the dragon had been full sized, chances were that Ysolde would feel a lot more trepidation than she did. But this one was so small... they hadn't had a recent Hatching... plus, the proportions were all wrong. No, she would never say she was some sort of dragon expert, but she could tell that this one had the proportions of an adult. Which meant... "Wait, you're one of those dragons that landed in the wedding cake!" 

She stared at Doryth, her pretty eyes glinting in the light of the glow baskets, unable to not giggle as he snuffled at her, the hot air of his breath tickling her legs. "I'm Ysolde! Who are you?" His voice had filtered into her mind and she had revelled in it. Is this what it would be like? To hear another presence in her own thoughts?

On Sun, Apr 5, 2020 at 12:23 PM Rogue Kakashi <snail.on.speed@...> wrote:
Doryth seemed to be just as taken aback with finding a girl as the girl had with finding a dragon.  Her comment confused the blue, who quickly replied to her, {{ If I wasn't, then why I am I here?  }}

Desille heard Doryth speaking to somebody and her nerves grew only worse.  She blitzed into the craft halls, turning familiar tunnels until she came upon exactly what she was looking for, "Doryth!" she exclaimed, nearly out of breath.  "You big blue lump!   You're not supposed to be in here!"

{{ But!  I am!  I know, I can feel it, it's soooooo close,}}  he began sniffing the air, first up hear the ceiling and then down towards teh floor, then the girl's feet, her legs.  Something about her drew him, {{ Who are you!?  }}

"I'm sorry, he's never acted like this before!" Desille called out from the other side of Doryth.

Re: The Art of Dragonhealing (Ambrelli/Yiyu)

Jessica Freise
 

Something ancient lived in the Dragonhealer's gaze, along with the evident warning and a touch of disbelief. Disbelief, Yiyu understood, was directed at her. Part of her wilted -- or tried to. She refused to let that happen, to look away.

"I can do this," she said simply, steel in her words. "I want to be a help, not a henderence to my Weyr."

On Apr 5, 2020, at 8:54 PM, TrueTricia <tricia.nicewicz@...> wrote:

Ambrelli nodded.  "Dragonhealing isn't easy.  You're not just dealing with the dragon, but with the Rider too.  You're a Candidate, so you probably think Riders are awesome.  Some are.  Sore are dicks.  And whatever they are when things are going well, they're different when their lifemate is in pain.  People lose their minds and do crazy things when someone they love is in pain, and it's worse when it's a pain they can feel too.  They stop thinking, and they react irrationally.  And in the middle of a Pass, the times when it's bad are more than the times when it's good.  This isn't the Craft for the faint of heart...." 

It was a fair warning.  Arolos wasn't Fort, but the dangers and the risks were still real.  Chances were slim the girl would get assaulted or raped on a weyrcall here.  It hadn't been that way at Fort.  But no matter what Weyr you were at or its attitudes, nothing could prepare you for the challenges of trying to calm rider and dragon enough after a bad Threadfall, especially when the Rider was unconscious and the dragon scored so bad he was a danger to those working on him, or in danger of going between.  If a Queen could be called to calm him, great, but during bad Threadfalls, there may be too many injuries and not enough Queens.  She remembered a bad Fall at Fort that was like that.  She hated half the Riders in that damn Weyr, but she'd never, never wish that kind of pain or death on anyone.  Not even Fortians.  


Re: In Need of a Bit of Healing (Ambrelli/Z'go)

TrueTricia
 

The second salve went on quickly.  She wiped her hands on the towel, capping her salves and placing them back in the satchel.  She then pulled out a thin strip of fabric, and cut them to the size of the wound.  

"That's because that's not where I go to drink..."  she gave him a wicked smile.  "There aren't any weyrbrats there to tempt away with sweets." 

She gave a sigh at the last.  Thank yous for helping dragons.  For doing her Craft, for saving those that saved her.  "You don't owe me anything.  I help the dragons because I want to, not for any other reason."  Her tone was prickly.  She'd used those thanks far too often at Fort to curry one favor or another for the Resistance.  And look where that had gotten her.  Trading favors, unquestioned rides for deliveries, or in some cases, allowing herself to be bedded by the grateful rider to steal something the Resistance needed while he slept later.  She'd never not healed a dragon.  But she'd also always said yes to the thank yous.  And that life was behind her.  

She looked at his wine though.  "Maybe if you had a skull though..."  It was an attempt at humor to made up for the prickliness.  She closed her eyes briefly before turning back to Gamyth.  

"Now it's time for us to move onto treating the rest of your leg, the muscles and the hide that is stretched and strained as a result."  She reached down into her bag, pulling a strange looking wooden implement out.  She turned to Z'go.  "You should learn to do this.  I have more of these in my shop.  You'll need to do this twice a day until that wound is completely healed.  And you'll need oil.  I assume you have some.  For the dragon."

"Oh it's definitely not going to be a bronze. I hope." I'des responded with another sigh. "It would probably be best if it was a blue. Or a gold, if we get really lucky."

Z'go hadn't been sober when she entered, but she didn't have to worry; he was a bitran and proudly able to hold his own, at least were wine was concerned.  He filled the cup up again, except that this time he left it on one of the tables, for when she was finished.  He let a snort when he heard her answer; "Really now?  I never see you drinking at the Dining Cavern," he mentioned, which is where most dragonriders who partook ended up after a few cups.  There was no other drink at making the antisocial social again, Z'go had found.  "Oh, right, it's because you're the cavern's witch.  You must drink alone in the dark, from the skulls of weyr children who misbehave and don't go bed on time.  Well I don't have any skulls we can share but this mug will have to do... as a thank you for helping Gamyth."

"I kind of want to go looking for eggs." I'des admitted. "But Sunstreath is particular, and I don't know if he'd really like it." A shrug. "Pets are cute, but Sunny ate a stray feline once. And even in Ista, flit pets aren't common."

"There's *two* ranking *greenriders*." I'des let his tone speak for him in that particular matter. "Yeah, one's a wingthird, which is *maybe* okay if he doesn't actually do anything of the real work, but... Wingleader? *Really*?"

He winced. "I mean... I'm sure they're good riders, but..." It had, in fact, been bothering him. 

"The flitters down here are really something, though a wher... I'm not a fan of those. I'm hoping Sunstreath will let me Impress a flit though."

"That's true," D'cul agreed. "Rank is more... a suggestion here than a rule with the obvious exception of golds. Mind, I don't mind lower riders having ranks like Wingthird or maybe even Wingseconds if they're competent, and I can respect brownriding Weyrleaders like R'tal, but it's so different than a Weyr like High Reaches. That place was.... difficult." He would never forgive Jerasi for arranging to steal Zivath's egg and claim it for her own. That had brought a deep shame on High Reaches riders that Wygelle was working hard to erase.

"I used to think that, if I went down to the beach and walked for five minutes, I would have enough firelizard eggs to take up North, sell at a Gather, and make myself ridiculously rich. I mean, I probably still could. I do like that whers are more acceptable down here. Right handy for a ranking rider to have."

Merck took the dragon's snort for encouragement.  He proceeded to send Gamyth a series of amusing images of dragon and flit antics to distract him.  

She was finished with the blade now, cleaning it off on a towel she pulled from her satchel.  She pulled out a couple of salves, dipping her fingers in them, and slowly starting to spread them across the wound.  "Gamyth these are to help keep your score from getting infected."  

She looked over at the rider, watched him finish the cup.  Shards, was he going to be even remotely sober by the time she was done here?  But she sniggered at this 'caverns witch' joke.  No, the truth was that they warned their weyrbrats against Rebels like her when they're older.  "Something like that...." was all she replied though.  She went back to spreading the salves, looking up a bit warily as he moved closer, but she said nothing.  He was handsome, in a scruffy sort of way, but she'd learned that good looks, not unlike her own, could hide nasty things beneath the surface.  What would she beneath his surface, and he beneath hers.  

"Is that a compliment hidden in there?" she finished applying the first salve and started on the second, wiping her hands between.  "I'll have you know i'm a master of one of those crafts, and I have knots for the other..."

"Arolos... It's all right." I'des shrugged . "It's definitely an interesting place so far. There doesn't seem to be as much standing on rank. And there's so *many* flits..."
