((I am sure it will not be so bad, if we stay together. Mine says two is warmer than one.)) Sigyth soothed, with a soft hum. ((Shall we go together, or meet there? Mine looks forward to seeing Yours.)) She gave a little wriggle of delight.
Runaath paused for a moment to confer with E'thari before replying.
((Mine says to meet there. He's planning to help ferry some supplies
for those wanting to set up stalls at the gather. He plans to use the
marks the people are giving him to treat Yours to something nice.))

Re: The Rescue (atten: Andronda)

D'jarin was watching the ice skaters, content to let those who knew what they were doing glide around without feeling the slightest urge to join in himself, when he saw the faint cracks along the ice- and the woman who was skating right for it.

There wasn't time to do anything but react, and so he moved, lurching toward her awkwardly over the ice. "Wait- stop!"
Skating was a favorite pastime of Andronda's. Back when she'd been
just a regular holder girl, she and her siblings and cousins would
skate often in the winter on the little pond near the Hold for as long
as the ice held firm. Wooden runners tied to boots made for a fun
afternoon or evening, and even as cold as it was, the constant
movement kept one warm. And while she wasn't good enough for things
like trick skating, she was more than good enough not to be among
those floundering and flopping around like fish out of water.

She was good enough that when she heard the shout to stop that she
brought herself to a stop right quick - assuming that the fellow
shouting had spotted something or someone had slipped and was sliding
into her path or something of the sort. She didn't see the cracks in
the ice beneath her until it was too late, and suddenly there was no
ice under her feet, but instead ice cold water rushing up around her!
Andronda shouted in alarm, then in pain as her legs came to a jarring
stop, causing her to lose her balance and topple over, breaking more
ice and falling into the water - the thankfully shallow - freezing
cold water.

(ooc: your call if she falls in or not- he can pull her out if so.)

"Oh, of course it's still pretty! Keep the shell after it Hatches. I'm sure there's a Crafter out there who can make something with the shells." She fingered her own pendant that had a piece of Eglanth's shell, along with Zari's and Ranger's shells.

She reached into the basket for the Whispering Wind egg, wrapped it with wool and handed it to him. "No matter what color it is, it's yours, and will be awesome!" she said.

Karla cocked her head. He had a nice smile. She reached into her basket and held out the Warm Embers egg. "This one seems tailor-made for you," she said. "You seem like a warm person, and this egg makes me feel warm every time I look at it."

"Sit on the floor and raise your arm above your head," Cremsden ordered, his voice terse. "Slow down blood loss -- you, the fellow in green, go find a Healer tent would you?" He bent over the man on the ground, quietly reaching to remove the knife from his grasp before he went further. You only had to get stabbed once to learn some lessons. "You awake there, sir? Sharding lucky for you that you're in High Reaches -- got a lot of layers for a knife to go through before it hits skin here. I'm going to start cutting your coat off now to get a look at the damage, I don't want to pull this out until I know where it is, you understand?" Whether the man was aware of it or not he still talked, tone a lot calmer than he felt as he started to work. "Can you tell me your name please?"

Not all the blood was the traders? He looked over himself curiously and, sure enough, did find at least one cut that was in fact on him and was also bleeding.

"Huh, would you look at that," he mused almost absently. C'fan stood by part calmly, part tensely as he waited for the guard and for Cremsden to do his thing.

"Hmmm," Karla said, looking at the eggs. "It depends on my mood, but today I'd go with the foggy morning. I'm feeling...foggy today!" She giggled, then reached up to pat her hair, where Zari had made a nest of it. "Though I probably look like I've gone through a windstorm."

Karla nodded. "Yeah. I'd love to take them north and sell at the Frost Fayre, but I don't trust that they'd make it. But here, you can't throw a glow without hitting someone with a firelizard."  She uncovered the basket to reveal the eggs:

The Whispering Wind Egg:  This egg is a pale cream, with cloudy blue and brown whorls all around it, making it look like the north wind blowing. You can get lost in trying to trace the whorls on the egg, because they all run into each other. Once you look away, you feel like you've been in a windstorm. Even your hair is disheveled. (brown)

Lost in the Mist: This egg is a cloudy grey. Looking at it, you can imagine yourself lost in a fog. But grey can be just as beautiful as blue, or green, or red. There's something about this egg, like whoever is in it will be as fleeting as the morning mist. (Green)

The Hypnotic Eye: So you thought the Whispering Wind Egg was hypnotic? Wait until you look at The Hypnotic Eye! This egg is striped: thin stripes that, if you look at it for long enough, seem to move. There's a hint of an eye within the stripes, or at least you think there is. Because that eye moves around the egg. No matter where you look, you will also see the eye. (blue)

Waves in the Water: You'll almost be afraid to pick this egg up. It looks like a ball of water, and if you touch it, it will disintigrate. But, that's not the case. When you pick it up, you will feel like you're holding a precious jewel. (blue)

Reserved for Mya

The Cat's Meow egg: While not noticeably bronze, this egg is larger than the others in Zari's small Clutch, bar one, so Karla assumes it's a bronze. She's half tempted to keep this egg, but with already having Ranger and Zari, she doesn't want to be selfish. But this egg is so unusual: she sees a face in it. Not just any face though, something very reminiscent of a small feline. There--there are two triangular shapes a short distant apart from each other that could be ears. And right underneath, two round, yet slightly oval shaped spots. Between the 'ears' and the 'eyes' is a definite marking that looks like an "M". And there, a nose, and radiating out from that little pinkish brown triangle are lines that are definitely reminiscent of whiskers.

Kalra wonders what the inhabitant of this egg will look like, but more importantly, what will it act like?

Reserved for LadyRose

The Warm Embers: Something about this egg makes everyone want to feel it. The egg is whorled in colors that make it look like a warm fuzzy blanket, or a fire that has burnt down to embers. It looks so comfortable and warm, like you could take this egg to bed with you and it will keep you warm all night. (You don't want to really do that, though, since you'll probably break it.)

M'gal was at the Fayre, at a booth looking at a new knife for Kassia. He was haggling the price down but when Ozayith, who was staying at Arolos 'just in case' informed M'gal that he was there, at the Fayre, he threw a bunch of different denomination marks at the seller.

"Gotta go!" he said and ran off with the knife. He'd make her a nice sheath for it later.

Oz got them back to Arolos in record time, and he ran to the Infirmary. "I'm here," he said, panting almost as hard as Kassia. He didn't even realize he still had the dagger in his hand. "Am I too late?"

Cotai was about to answer the green when another one hit, this one squeezing a wheeze out of her at the pain.

When it released she looked at N'shen, a bit nervously, saying, "I think...I should go too."

"Oh. Oh!" N'shen rushed to Cotai's side to help her to stand. Three new babies, then. It was especially good that he had stayed home. And especially good he had sent marks with Bl'by for baby and mama presents.

Laurie
 


Karla sat in the dining hall with a basket, kept warm with a blanket and some heated sand. In the basket were six firelizard eggs, laid by her  gold, Zari. Karla sighed. With the number of people owning gold firelizards in the Weyr, eggs were getting harder and harder to give away. But she didn't want to just leave these to hatch away from everyone. Zari was half-Callamere, and the bronze who had caught her was also half Callamere. So, in her eyes, these eggs were special. 

{{And they're Zari's so of course they're special, dear,}} Eglanth said.

But Karla found it difficult to make friends. Partially because she was so quiet, and partially because her best friend was a goldrider and she was afraid people would try to get close to her in order to curry favor with Delysia. 

So, here she sat, in the Dining Hall, hoping to give her eggs a home.

(OOC: There are two bronze eggs which are going to Vevennil and Zy'fen, but she also has a brown, a green, and two blues if anyone wants them.)


(Frost Fayre) Frozen treats for all! {Uooji, all}

Kouga
 

Uooji had taken quite some time to get this set up, but to him it had
been worth it. It hadn't been too great of a turn out just yet, but he
had only been at this for a turn now, last Frost Fayre had been his
first time selling and he had improved things since then. It had been
a bit of an investment sure, but he thought it would be worth it.

He had taken some time to find a way to get several flavors and now
had some from a couple kinds of berries and a couple fruits as well as
getting some good bowls from the south. The whole thing had cost him a
fair amount of marks, but it was worth it to him. So all that had gone
into setting up his stall with his wooden bowls for individual people,
the large contain for his clean snow, and his frozen syrup to be
handed out wrapped in scraps of cloth he had gotten for cheap.

He made sure to have some of the frozen syrup and a couple bowls of
flavored snow on display at all times to get people's interest before
he started to call out "Come get your sweet treats!" and other things
like it.

ooc: Uooji is selling snowcones and rockcandy! This is only his second
big gather and if you saw him last turn he wasn't nearly as put
together oops... Currently he is selling:

Snow flavored with either: Cherry, Plums, or Peaches (1/4 mark for a
bowl, but if you bring him back his nice wooden bowl he'll give you
1/8 mark back those cost him marks and he wants them back...)
Frozen Syrup flavored with either: Lemon, Red Melon, or Redfruit (1/8
mark for a hand full of pieces that are about the size of a palm
wrapped in some cloth, yes he will let you mix and match flavors if
you ask)

Fruits/berries for his flavors pulled from a list found only of things
mentioned in the books so hopefully all is right. He'll get
more/different flavors as he gets more marks to spend.

(Frost Fayre) What is that? {Xy'lan, M'nom}

Kouga
 

Xy'lan mentally waved off the grumbling in the back of her mind
offering the still growing green a mental version of sticking out her
tongue before grinning. Bandi really /did/ make it too easy to mess
with her, if the green was just a bit more fun she wouldn't mess with
her so much, but nope! Even just calling her Bandi instead of Bandiuth
did it and it was too funny! Still she could have that fun back home,
for now she was here to enjoy the Fayre, even if it was cold.

It took a bit of wondering around before she finally found something
that caught her eye. Well ok she would like something for Zababuz the
canine was getting older and she wasn't sure how much longer she would
have him with her. But the sad thing was she doubted she would find
much for him here or any other animals in reality. I mean sure there
would probably be /someone/ selling flit eggs she was sure, (though
this was based on being born and raised south where there was always
one at a gather) but when she could get them for free back home? Why
spend marks so nope that was a no.

'Lan followed her nose to the food deciding to find out what was
around there for now, but paused when she spotted someone handing out
bowls that looked like snow, or half like snow? Either way she wasn't
sure and made her way over to the man cocking her head at his stall
for a moment before finally just asking when he finished with the
person he was helping "Ok what is it?"

Uooji blinked at the sudden words and considered just ignoring the
girl for a moment and her rudeness, but spotted the knots and realized
why. He hadn't been at this long and had only been here north so she
probably wouldn't know him. Still no need for her to be rude.
"Flavored snow." he offered unable to help his slightly short tone.

Xy'lan blinked at the tone before realizing how she probably came off
at her question and offered him a grin "Sorry. I just..." she drifted
off looking at the retreating form with the bowl "..it was really
interesting looking." she offered in slight embarrassment. The man
stared at her for a moment causing her to shift a bit where she stood,
suddenly feeling like she was being watched and judged by the WLMs
before he nodded his acceptance. She offered him a grin before looking
back at the things in his stall again "So flavored snow?"

ooc: hope this works!
