Today Is a Good Day Att: Andronda/Sarati

Jerzy Tobin
 

Andronda was in a much better mood leaving the Hatching Cavern than
she had been going in. Seeing the clutch, with its twin golds, was
bound to have that sort of an effect. It was enough to make her
forget just how tired she was, at least for a little bit. Enough that
she was still smiling when she walked into her office, where Sarati
was already at work.

"Good morning, Sarati!" Andronda said with a cheerful wave.

Trifali gave her questions honest thought, taking a breath before she answered, "I came here to find family, and I have that in spades," she flashed Kassia a grin, eyes alight before she sobered.

"I didn't come here to Impress a gold. I'm not going to lie and say it wouldn't be a dream of mine, but your lecture put the breaks on 'My world is over if I don't Impress gold', which I think I had started to think. I just wish I could explain to myself why I started out that way. It isn't really like Impressing any other color, is it? I mean, you have to be able and willing to rise up to the occasion and the life-long meaning behind walking off the sands beside a gold."

Trifali was willing, able, and dedicated. SHe let Kassia see that all in her eyes, in her face. But she'd be more than stupid if she weren't a little trepidatious as well.

"Deep down they love each other," Kashara acknowledged, "but sometimes it's hard to tell. And there's nothing saying that being with someone is better than being alone. You can be with someone and still feel very alone. Not wanting to be alone might be a bad reason to have a dragon because you can become dependent on them, or feel worse if things don't go exactly the way you hope. You should talk to my uncle, T'rifoshe. He's an ACM. He specializes in talking these things out."

She nodded at the next question. "I am her daughter and your worries don't sound weird. Everyone wants to feel a part of something and to feel loved. I love my mom, but she wasn't always easy to be close to."

(RAIN) Last Minute Cancellations ATTN ALL

Laura Walker
 

It was always worse when the heat was higher on a Fall day. Between might provide a few moments' cool respite, and the air might be cooler higher in the sky but that didn't compensate for the amount of heavy Fall gear which needs must be piled on whilst still on the ground. And by mid-morning that day it was already miserably hot and humid, the air thick with water and unpleasant. 

It was worse by lunch, the sky turning an unappetising mustard colour. By then though those who had lived in the South for any amount of time were starting to murmur. It didn't take too many turns to recognise the feel of a storm in the air -- and of course, a storm meant no Fall fighting that day at all.

A few spots of rain an hour before Fall brought false hope, stopping almost as soon as they started. The dark clouds were massing across the skies certainly, in fact it was starting to look more like late evening than mid-afternoon, but that didn't mean the rain would come in time for this Fall.

And then, thirty minutes before Fall, just as Wingleaders were starting to line up their riders for inspection it came. First the lightning, arcing across the sky, sharp and vivid against the dark clouds and followed almost immediately by a loud growl of thunder that made the ground under their feet vibrate. 

A few riders - mostly the younger ones - risked stern looks from their Wingleaders by cheering at that point.

And came the the rain - no slow starting scattered droplets now but veritable sheets of rain, as though someone had emptied an enormous bucket from on high. Leather Fall gear provided some protection but any rider who had hoped to leave their jacket off a while longer was very quickly soaked.

It was only for the Wingleaders to confirm officially what everyone already knew. There would be no Fall fighting today; the rain would kill any Thread before it got close to the ground. Unexpectedly, the riders might have an afternoon free.

(And only those who knew how quickly an Arolos rainy season could turn might predict that in time the rain too might cause as many problems as it resolved).

Month 10 Intro and OOC ((Attn: All FF Weyrlings))

Rosiegirl
 

OOC: Set date of 28.8.1


Ko’ssen was out in the weyrlings’ training area of the weyrbowl, standing in front of the FF weyrling class as they all gathered for their lesson. Once everyone was there, and making sure to raise his voice to be heard by all the weyrlings, Ko’ssen’s expression was more serious than the other times he’d stood in front of these weyrlings as he began with: 


“You're nearly a full rider, as this is month you will be learning to fly with your dragons *between*, as long as you have been cleared for that lesson. Only once you have learned to go *between* and successfully completed that lesson will you be allowed to not just have anyone in your weyr that you want, but you will also be able to resume those intimate activities that have been forbidden up till now. Your dragons are nearly full sized at this point. Bronzes on average are 30 ft, Browns 26 ft, Blues around 22 ft and greens about 18 ft.”


Dragons will begin staying with dragons other than clutchmates. Some may still prefer the friends they made while training, but they no longer feel a need to only be with their classmates, and may be sunning or resting with those in the Wings their rider may potentially be joining. Some clutchmates remain very close, however, and when they are in Wings together, they often overcompensate and must be separated in formation by Wingseconds and Wingleaders until they get a bit more experience and learn to adjust their feelings.”


The WLMA looked around "Otherwise, the principle difference this month will be learning the art of going *between* and more about becoming a full dragonrider pair above and beyond what we have done to date. Are there any questions?"


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*


Forgotten of Foreth: Month 10 Overview


Ok, so here’s a list of the lessons/activities that would be expected to happen this month, regardless of if there is a lesson put out on the list or not, as well as various RP opportunity ideas. We are determining which lesson we are going to post to the list still, but if there’s a specific lesson or activity you’d like to see please let us know. 


Lesson List/Activities: 

~ Continuing physical training based on rider’s age: morning run around the Bowl followed by either calisthenics or the obstacle course on alternating days (this would have been happening since they Impressed)

~ Continuing series of lessons on All Territories: This month’s focus is on social structures and inter-weyr interactions between territories, North and South (taught by Harper).

~ Continuing Threadfall Discussion (built on from month 5 lesson): Threadfall Types & Wind Factors Activity

~ Continuing Muscle Strengthening Exercises: Outside the Weyr ‘Wing Flights’

~ Continued Self Defense Training (Advanced lesson, taught by Weyrguard):

~ Continuing *Between* Prep (built on from month 6 lesson): Drills on recognition points around the Weyr

~ ‘Greenrider-only’ Greenflight Lesson: participation is mandatory OOCly *and* ICly.

~ First *Between* (End of Month): First jump is either 1-on-1 with a WLM/AWLM or in your small mentor group but not in a full class setting. Any weyrling with *any* issue is held back from this lesson.

~ First Kill (only after successful First *Between* lesson): Learning to hunt w/ your dragon.


RP Opportunities:

~ RP for ‘greenrider-only’ greenflight lesson.

~ Build up to First *Between* lesson: possible feelings could include anger at being held back, scared, excited, or even overconfident/cocky. 

~ First Hunt: relief your dragon can hunt for themselves now, possible squeamishness at dragon ferocity in the hunt spilling over into your mind.


Pre-Month 10 *Betweening* Questionnaire


Alright everyone, I know it seems like we *just* did a Month 8 Interview for your weyrlings, but before we RP *anything* related to a betweening lesson there is a very small questionnaire that I’d like to get answers for in regards to each weyrling. This is especially important for any weyrlings that had problems enough to be either held back from moving out, or allowed to move out with caveats on possibly being pulled back to the barracks if necessary.


Also, the biggest thing to remember is that if your weyrling is still having *any* issues whatsoever, they will not be learning to go *between* with the rest of their classmates. The WLM team will not risk a ‘oh, it’s only a small problem’ weyrling attempting the *between* lesson and then not surviving, and Ko’ssen especially is going to be very strict on making sure all weyrling issues (Impression Anxiety, behavior, bookwork, and physical activity lessons) are all resolved before each weyrling does their *between* lesson. 


Here is a link to the Questionnaire that I posted back on July 20th: https://arolosweyr.groups.io/g/OOC/message/160886

Month 4 Intro and OOC ((Attn: All MD Weyrlings))

Rosiegirl
 

OOC: Set date of 28.8.1


Ko’ssen was back in front of the MD weyrlings again this morning, leaning against the desk in front of the room with his arms crossed but otherwise looking relaxed when the weyrlings all began to file in and take their seats. Smiling at them, Ko’ssen waited for them to all get settled before straightening up and getting everyone’s attention. 


Pitching his voice up to carry throughout the room, Ko’ssen began with a smile “Alright everyone, we are now beginning the fourth month together and at this point green dragons should be around 11ft, blues at around 14ft, browns at around 16, and bronzes at around 18ft.” 


Looking around at the weyrlings, Ko’ssen continued with “Now here is where things start getting a little more intense. You will be doing a lot of new things in this month which we will expand and build on as time goes on. Your dragons will want to fly, but we will still be concentrating on building their muscles with swimming and exercises in preparation for them flying. However, the good news is that in preparations for your first flights you will not only be fitted for flight gear but will start making your first sets of straps. This is mainly because you will be doing mounted ground drills to learn the principles of formation.”


"Regular bathing and oiling is still necessary, especially for the blues and greens who will be rapidly growing over the next couple of months in comparison to the bronzes. They may even need an extra feeding that is out of character so do not be surprised by this. We will be watching your progress carefully in this month and will have a review with all of you to ensure everything is well by the end of the month."

Midsummer Dreamers: Month 4 Overview: 


Ok, so here’s a list of the lessons/activities that would be expected to happen this month, regardless of if there is a lesson put out on the list or not, as well as various RP opportunity ideas. We are determining which lesson we are going to post to the list still, but if there’s a specific lesson or activity you’d like to see please let us know.

Lesson List/Activities: 

~ Continuing physical training based on rider’s age: morning run around the Bowl followed by either calisthenics or the obstacle course on alternating days

~ Continuing series of lessons on Northern Territory: This month’s focus is on Benden and surrounding territory (taught by Harper): geography, weather patterns, history, & politics

~ Continuing Ground Drills: more complex formations, increased time

~ Continuing Dragon-rider Bonding Exercises: blindfold race

~ Continuing Muscle Strengthening/Flight Prep Exercises: more swimming and flapping exercises

~ Making Flying Straps Lesson: taught by leathercrafter

~ Frequent tests on knowledge: testing across all topics

~ Review meeting with WLM/AWLMs on progress to date

~ Firestone pickup from dragonback: weyrlings are on ground tossing bags up to riders who don’t land

~ Fall Experience: maintaining firestone bag supplies for the Wings

~ Flight Gear Fitting: Done by tailor or leathercrafters


RP Opportunities:

~ Reaction to Helping during ‘Fall

~ Firestone bag tossing to riders during ‘Fall: possible muscle strain, or ‘failed’ tossing that doesn’t reach the rider trying to grab the bag (these are *heavy* bags after all and your weyrling might not be physically prepared/strong enough to throw them into the air yet)

~ New earlier schedule annoyance (or not) and physical training in the morning for the human side of the weyrling pair.

~ Trouble making flying straps (weyrlings with leathercraft experience can possibly help other weyrlings)

~ Flight Gear Fitting: the realization that you will be a Threadfighter! Excitement, sudden fear as it’s made more real, a huge ‘wow’ moment perhaps...

Month 4 Review:


So, because there is supposed to be a Month 4 review at the end of the month with your weyrling and the WLM team, I went ahead and made a specific OOC post regarding all the things that would have been covered in this review. If you would not mind taking a look at that OOC post (found here: https://arolosweyr.groups.io/g/OOC/message/160891) and answering a couple of questions that would be greatly appreciated, and would also help us to be better prepared for when your weyrlings are in Month 8 and getting their Interview done before being cleared for moving out of the barracks.

"I'd certainly appreciate the good word!" Sehrael said jovially. "I'd be happy to do the same if there are any good words you'd like me to send around. So, what's good around the weyr? What do weyrfolk do for fun?" There was, of course, a reputation out and about, but Sehrael doubted that was all there was to it.
"Well, I guess that depends what you're looking to do," Raelah
answered. "A lot of people enjoy swimming, especially being so warm
and sunny here. Hookball is pretty popular with the candidates and
weyrbrats. There's Harpers for music, dancing, card games and the
like. Heck, I've even put on a couple of shows since coming here, but
that's more to keep my hand in than anything else. Don't want to get
out of practice."

Clutching Time: attn Nyzara / C'lynx

kepheren
 

The day after flying thread was always something of a treat for C'lynx.  First off there was the simple joy of still being alive and not injured all to hell and back in the infirmary. Having had that experience a couple of times made the young bronze rider appreciate life all the more. Then there was the fact that the day after was generally a rest day and he could always appreciate that. Today didn't seem to be any different so he was settling in with the intent of doing absolutely nothing for awhile and just decompress. Brahn however had other ideas. The little bronze suddenly perked up from where he was dozing and began darting all over their weyr having a fit about something.

"What's gotten into you?" he asked, a bit irritated and more than a little puzzled.

In response he got an earful of chatter, several mental images of Flare and Nyzara and then the little bronze was out the door in a flash with an urgent demand that he be followed. C'lynx watched the receding image for a moment before giving chase. Maybe it was time for the gold flit to clutch? That would make sense. And he did want to see Nyzara again. Without a second thought he hopped up and went to follow. If nothing else he couldn't let Brahn run loose when he was in a mood like that. No telling what mischief he would start.

"Slow down you little trouble maker. I'm right behind you."

And so they were off to goodness only knew where hoping that Brahn had a better idea than his human pet did.

He frowned a bit at her raining on his dream and finally sighed a bit.

"No, it wouldn't be perfect I guess...but what ever is? Your mother and Floreth love each other don't they? Despite any arguing. Neither of them is ever alone or has to face life without the other at their side. I'm so tired of being alone..."

The last sounded a bit sad when he said it aloud and Ronhim wasn't sure why he had chosen this moment to make such a confession. Maybe because it was on his mind lately.  At any rate he tried to move on past the thought.

"So your the Weyrwoman's daughter and grew up in the Weyr? All of my little worries must sound very strange to you."

While new to Arolos even Ronhim had heard who Foreth was and that riders had different sorts of family relations than holders or crafters did.

Xyetlan grinned and nodded "Sure do try." she agreed offering
Bandicuth a first piece of meat "Chew it." she informed the green
trying to ignore the way her stomach seemed to be trying to eat
itself. She knew she wasn't hungry or at least not that hungry so it
had to be the little green, but was that normal? "Is it normal to be
so hungry?" She asked glancing at R'kyo "I've only got my canine and I
mean there are stories, but it's like i will never be full again."

"That's normal," R'kyo nodded. He could not help but smile. He remembered the feeling as though it were yesterday. "But you will. In fact, you'll know to stop feeding her when you feel full again yourself. So don't let her convince you to overstuff her."


Re: Is it ok to be happy and sad and mad? {Fellan, E'lis}

Aaron
 

Fellan considered for several long moments trying to decide the best
way to reply, or rather what the reply was before finally coming to a
decision ::Hard.:: it was like back when he was leaning to read and
talk with his hands all at once only with less direct help most days.
::When TailorWynn is around to help it is easier, I like working with
her. She is lots better at signing now and it helps. When she isn't
there though I have to read the Master and Journeymen's lips and that
is harder when they aren't always facing me. I don't think most of
them try to either though.:: he replied. He knew it was going to be
harder for him, and that it would be harder to get the teachers to
well teach him so it didn't overly both him, but it was nice to have
someone who was willing to work with him.

E'lis nodded as he "listened" to his son. It was difficult not to be able to do more to help him, but he would do whatever he could. He always did.

::Would you like me to have a talk with them?:: he asked. He was fully prepared to give any and all of them an earful for not treating Fellan with respect.

Shalia looked around at her sisters and cousins.  She had a sneaking suspicion why the five of them had been summoned there, and Kassia soon proved her correct. 

"I want to Stand," she said, although she wasn't willing to admit just how much she wanted one of Foreth's eggs, even with how upset she still was, "and I want to see the eggs, but I don't want to Impress one of the golds."  She'd let her aunt decide if she should go in and look with thst caveat.  Even if she did go in, she wouldn't get any nearer to the golds than she had to, even in the Stands!

OOC: Edited because I accidentally God-modded for a moment.
 My sincerest apologies.

Trifali's heart leapt. Beating harder, faster, until she tasted her pulse on her tongue. It wasn't fear, but shear excitement that captivated her in that moment.

Quietly, she took her place in the stands. Her gaze raked the sands, looking at everything. There was a chance she might succeed, might Impress. Kassia's words came back to her and before she let herself look at the twin golds, she looked over the other eggs first, picking silently.

Then she looked. Faranth, was that one a joke? It didn't *not* look like a golden egg, the sheen was definitely there. But as she gazed, it was the other one that trapped her attention and made her gasp softly.

The golden egged looked like some elaborate cage, as if what waited inside must be contained. But if she looked hard enough, there was a keyhole of sorts amidst the bars. Her hands, damp with nerves, rose so that she framed her face as she gazed at the caged egg and wondered what it might be like to touch it, to turn the key in her heart and open to the being inside.

"Easy. The purpose here isn't to wash you and get you clean but for you to havre fun and strengthen your muscles in preparation for when we start to fly. It's like flapping lessons but in water. See the AWLM's dragon out there? You can't go past them. So long as you stay in here, you'll be safe and won't have to worry about getting tired."

{{I won't get tired?!}} Tototh was very eager about that. S'lion was quick to correct him.

"No no you can still get tired, but out there past the adult dragon the water is very deep and you can't just stand up. If you get tired out there and stop swimming, you'd just go down. There's no ground for a long ways. Then I'd be sad." That was enough to convince the blue.

Regret that the firelizard had *betweened*, anger at the Thread that had forever changed his life, bitterness over that change, relief and gratitude that he was still alive, and that it hadn't been Nerenth who was lost.

Re: Meeting of accidental thieves {Qabil, Trifali}

Jessica Freise
 

Trifali had been busy. Her head was full of lectures and hopes and fears. The closer it came, the more excited she was. She had taken Kassia's words to heart; if not a gold, then perhaps another would be that perfect someone for her.

She was so involved in her thoughts and her work that she didn't miss the trinket until she reached for it and it wasn't there. She blinked, looking around. It wasn't there, not here, either, or over there. Rising, she followed the path of the last person who had come by, trying to squash her go-to emotions of indignence and panic that she'd lost it.

"Excuse me," she said.
