Calyse nodded with new understanding, thinking about what the others had said. "I-I've never seen more than one gold on the Sands, and what with w-what happened at Fort.." she shrugged, knowing her fears weren't entirely unfounded even if they were extremely unlikely. Everyone knew the story, though. "Do you think the dragons would *make* their riders into rivals? Even if the girls were friends? I mean, obviously the-the dragons.. would be. But their influence..?" She looked around, frowning like the pessimist she was. "You really think even the best of friends would.. turn on each other like that?"

"Ah, real new then," Kashara said.  She gestured at her books. "These are for my craft class. Have you checked in with any of the ACM's yet? My uncle is on duty if you haven't."

"Oh, I've talked to the proper authorities and all that," said Sehrael. "Got assigned a bunk and the like. So, what are you learning?" she wondered.

She didn't seem offended by his bumping her which relieved the big fellow a great deal. It also made him a bit self conscious though. He wasn't the sort of person most folks talked to. No, from his experience he was generally treated more like the furniture:  quiet and off in a corner till somebody needed something lifted out of the way. His Harper friend had been trying to teach Ronhim to be more out going and sociable but the lessons weren't coming easy to him.

"I'm glad I didn't hurt you," he said in a quiet tone raising his eyes to look at her and almost immediately blushing. She really was very pretty and that fact flustered him even more and made it harder to find the words he wanted. "I'm kind of clumsy some times."

He gave her a bit of a timid smile when she said her name.

"Miacca. It's a very pretty name."

He really did seem to fixate on making sure he'd not hurt her.  "I am *fine*.  More than fine actually."  A pleasant smile spread across her face as those words left her mouth.  "I'm more surprised that it took so long to have someone to bump into me.  Running into someone in this crowd is pretty much as expected as...wrinkled faces over Numbweed."  Miacca paused, considering the analogy she just used, and couldn't help the small giggle that escaped from her.  

Her smile widened as he managed to get out the compliment about her name.  It'd seemed like he wasn't comfortable around her, what with the seeming effort  on his part to make himself actually look toward her.  But, the timid smile left her viewing that more like a puppy that thought he wasn't doing enough to impress someone.  "It's sweet that you think so."  Miacca laid her hand against his arm in a more reassuring gesture than her earlier shoulder dump, though she let it drop away soon after.  "I'm not exactly great with determining stuff like that about names...or at least not with my own name.  Still well met, Ronhim."

"Hello," Kashara said from where she was curled up in the common room. Her dragonhealer homework was spread out before her. "You look lost. I assume you're new here?"

"That obvious, eh?" Sehrael laughed. "I suppose I'll have to work on my ‘I belong here’ saunter. I'm Sehrael. They sent me up on account of the clutch you all have on the Sands. Friendly fellow brought me over on a sweet blue dragon. What's all this, then?" She gestured to the homework. "If I'm meant to fill all that out, they haven't given me mine yet."

"People are accepted here so long as they don't cause trouble," Kashara said. "And the dragons don't care if you're not the smartest person in the Weyr or who you like to have sex with or what your background is. If your Lifemate is on the Sands, he or she will find you and you two will be happy together."

Eyes Open for Opportunity! (attn: Sehrael, any)

Aaron
 

Sehrael had never been inside the Weyr before. She had not been properly prepared for how big it would be. Practically unlimited room compared to what she was used to. Sleeping in a traveling wagon had nothing on this. 

Of course, there was far less in the way of privacy, both in sleeping quarters and in bathing, but despite having the wagon to retreat to, Sehrael was used to being in close quarters with many people – enough that this was not too uncomfortable an adjustment. It was only for a few Turns, anyway, and then she could get something more like the crafters got.

In these first few days, she meant to start building her connections. Meeting the right people meant meeting everyone and sorting it out later.

"Ho, there!" she said to the first folks she saw.

(ooc: Feel free to break this off into individual threads taking place over the first few days Sehrael is at the weyr.)

What did he want to talk about? Yeah, that was the hard part. Ronhim had trouble putting his jumbled thoughts into words. For a long moment he pondered that and then studied Kashara for a moment more. She seemed nice and he was grateful for her time. How best to sum up what he needed to know?

"I guess guys like that can be accepted here," he said with a nod. Truth be told that suited him just fine. While he wasn't attracted to men himself he had never really understood why others mistreated the men who did. Maybe he was just more understanding since he too had been generally neglected and mistreated.

"So I guess...I hope...that everyone is accepted? Even if they aren't so smart or can't always find the right words?  Can somebody like me really find a dragon on the sands? And make a place here doing something important?"

Deep down, though he didn't have the words to express it, Ronhim was just looking for acceptance and a chance to better himself. He just didn't know yet how to get that and all the new things he was seeing here made his head spin.

"Well, we wipe out half their apprentice stock most Hatchings. They should be used to it by now," R'tal said pragmatically as though K'ren hadn't occasionally complained of exactly that. "Besides, they occasionally get one that the craft doesn't suit for whatever reason. But if that worries you, by all means try the Candidates. Or the staffers even."

Re: It seemed like a good idea at the time! {Petiner, Kassia}

As much as Foreth needed her, especially with the eggs, Kassia had to get out of the Caverns sometimes. The Caverns were hot and claustrophobic and even distracted by the eggs, Foreth was still being a pain in Kassia's rear end. Plus Brogan needed to get out now that he couldn't play on the Sands any more. So Kassia took a walk every morning. The bronze was obediently at her side when he spotted the man and his baby blue.
~Twolegs and other wher~ he alerted, though Kassia could see them, too.

"Hello?" she called out. <<

Petiner paused at the voice glancing down at the little blue to make
sure he paused too, but that had seemed to be one of the easier
lessons to get the little wher to learn. Refocused on the voice though
it took him a second longer than he liked to recognize the Weyrwoman
and her wher Brogan before replying. "Good morning Weyrwoman Kassia,
and good day to you Borgan." he offered the pair formally before
turning his attention to the little wher "Say hello to the Weyrwoman
and her wher." he instructed.

The little blue wiggled in place hunger temporarily forgotten in the
face of new people (('lo!)) He greeted the bronze and woman happily
((Shin')) he added focusing at the much larger wher fascinated. The
bronze was so shiny! He had spotted a couple of the little things his
Pet called Firelizards that were that shiny and there were some around
the place they lived, but he lived seeing new shiny things. Though he
had quickly learned he couldn't bring the shinies back to his Pet when
they were so big much to his sorrow didn't mean he didn't still
consider it.

Petiner inwardly cringed at the loud greeting, was it actually /that/
loud no, but to Pet who prefered to go as unnoticed as he could it was
far to loud "Sorry Weyrwoman, we are working on volume." he explained.
