Wandering down the tunnels to the Journeyman offices, before she went home, she wanted to stop and say thank you to Cremsden. It had been his help after all.

Wanting to sit down and rest her pleasantly aching legs, Tyne crept inside the office, picking her way carefully over the bodies, Tyne settled herself on the floor in the corner where immediately, several of the firelizards had crawled onto her in a warm puddle of hide. 

So sleepy. Yawning widely, she leaned her head against the wall, letting her eyes drift closed...

Re: So why exactly DO you want to know? (Idri/S'ryll)

Nutmeg
 

He went somewhere, that was for sure. Of course, she hadn't a clue that he had actually been there. Idri waited patiently. It was clear that whatever was going on in his head was upsetting, even if it weren't for the glisten in his eyes giving him away. Maybe at some point, she would speak to Tyne more - but then again, maybe she wouldn't. Tyne was living independently now and would it really matter to her, Idri, just how well she had known the man she was sitting in front of.

Taking a moment of her own, she took a deep breath before continuing. "In the weeks that followed, when Tyne finally began speaking again, it was clear that she was having significant difficulty separating her identity from Myrandith's. She would speak as if she were Myrandith. She was plagued by horrific nightmares that were a twisted bastardisation of memories - putting her inside Myrandith's head. For a good long while it was not clear just what semblance of Tyne was going to emerge but over time and a lot of work with the Healers and Mindhealers, we began to bring some of Tyne back out." Another pause. "But it became quickly apparent that what needed to be established was Tyne's long term needs. What was going to happen. And most importantly, whether it was going to be possible for her to remain in High Reaches or any Weyr, ever again."

He remembered the room in the Healer Hall given to the riders as a flight room.  He remembered the metallic taste of blood on his lips as he bit them as the fighting began, willing Vastolth back with all his might.  The bronze had tried to help, but had not been still attached with the golds started jumping across Pern.  Or when they died.  Vastolth had been injured slightly in the flying mob, and after he broke away, Saere had run outside, calling his beloved bronze back to him.  The bronze had been trembling with pain, lust, and fear when he landed outside the Hall, and S'ryll hadn't even reached him yet when Vastolth broke out into the eerie death keen that meant only one thing.  S'ryll had felt it like an arrow to his heart, his bronze's grief at Myrandith's death striking him hard and fast, and he had fallen to his knees right there and then, collapsed at the base of his dragon, weeping into his own crumpled form.  He hadn't been in the room when Tyne tried to kill herself.  He hadn't seen her after he ran out of the room.  His last memories of her were riddled with flight lust, grief, and guilt.  

These memories all came flooding back at Idri spoke, and for a moment, S'ryll was back there plain as day, the Rim of Fort Weyr in the distance.  Behind him, Vastolth gave a rumble as if to call Saere back to the present.  His eyes were filled with emotion as he looked back at Idri.  His grief had caused him to run from Tyne before, but he would not run from her now.

"Tell me everything..." his eyes wet with emotion but steely in their resolve.

The bad thing about storms that hadn't blown through yet, was that
they made T'ryn's leg hurt. A lot. Bad enough that he had to use his
cane to move even small distances. Which was enough to put him in a
bit of a sour mood to begin with. But when he had to carry a bunch of
papers across the Weyr bowl because Myholth couldn't be bothered to
fly him across - the bronze was sunning near the golds, couldn't
possibly move didn't you know? - and well, T'ryn was far less than
pleased.

And of course it would be a time when it seemed that everyone was out
and about. Trying not to bump into people meant straying off of the
main paths, which meant there was plenty for his cane to trip up on.
And wouldn't you know, that was exactly what happened about half way
to his destination, causing him to trip, and scattering his papers all
across the ground.

"Oh, shard it all!" T'ryn exclaimed, trying to gather up the sheets
before a wind struck up and blew them away. That would be *his* luck!

When Idri had seen the notes, she had first been surprised. Then she had been suspicious. If it hadn't been for the fact that she recognised the Healer's name at the top of the sheet, she would have suspected one of the new Candidate Apprentices to have gotten it wrong. But it was Cremsden. "I'm not sure what I want to know." She looked suspicious. "Did Tyne seem like she'd taken anything to relax herself?" Because in all actuality, that wouldn't surprise her. Her former charge could be surprisingly devious when she wanted to be.

That brought a tired laugh out of Cremsden. "Ah, you want to know the secret of her magically good readings?" he teased, but it got cut off by a yawn partway through. "Ugh. Sometimes you half-wish for a disaster just so you can wake up."

"Nyeeeeeh." It was about as close to an audible grumble as she could shape into words at the silly time of night. She stepped closer, inspecting it closely as if it might magically turn itself into something drinkable by staring at it sadly. Then she properly noticed Cremsden and she bumped his arm with hers in a friendly manner. "Is the bad klah the reason Tyne's latest pressure readings were so wonky?"

She'd not had chance to ask Tyne herself and although she wasn't formally Tyne's minder anymore, but rather something of a responsible adult contact for her, Idri still made sure she was up to date on the woman's medical file.

"It's brewing," Cremsden said, not bothering to look around at the footsteps behind him. "Five minutes and it'll be drinkable, ten and it might be halfway decent."

It was fast approaching that time of a night shift where your brain casually reminded you that it should have been sleeping HOURS ago and attempted to cease to function. That was all well and good if you were allowed to sleep. Not so much when you were monitoring a feverish juvenile on the ward. Finally though, Idri had coaxed the youngster into sleep and seized the opportunity. A breath of air, a splash of cold water and a very large mug of klah. That would do the trick.

With the first two obtained and already feeling better for it, she had made her way to the ever ready klah stand, not remotely surprised to see another body there but with their back turned and the Infirmary lights reduced to let patients sleep, she couldn't entirely make them out.

A quiet nightshift was a blessing and a curse. A blessing because you didn't need to think, a curse because the seconds lasted hours and you *still had to be awake*. 

Cremsden had been attempting to use the time constructively but he had a sneaking suspicion that his notes for future apprentice lectures weren't even going to make sense to himself. Particularly not the past where he had failed to notice that he had come to the edge of the paper and continued writing on the desk, possibly because his eyes were shut at the time.

He reached for a mouthful of klah and looked sadly into an empty mug. Well, a leg stretch might wake him up at least and if he needed to make a fresh batch so much the better.

"Sometimes he's so bad you'd almost think he's a proddy green." I'des grumbled, but it was good natured. "And he isn't often interested in Candidates, so guess who has the joy of solo bathtime most of the time?" He shook his head. "I swear, my Weyrlinghood was composed entirely of washing him and trips to the Weyrlingmaster's, with the odd lesson thrown in, of course. And all that practically straight out of the creche."

He'd be absolutely adamant in having everyone nearby wash him and the poor Candidates would lose their arms."

Diagir looked to Aulian with a serious expression. "We've got someone lost down here. Dragons are talking to them to keep them safe and calm. Only too glad to have you here now." He looked back at the group warily. "We need to keep this group calm, too. Ziya can help keep whers calm, but humans aren't subject to a queen's will."

Rennitz looked up with surprise in unison with Aranck, the pair of them blinking at Yiyu. The other girl had been so quiet usually, so the outburst was absolutely a surprise.

"I... shouldn't think so," Renntiz haltingly replied. "What makes you say that? Has someone said something to you?"
