Kirene lowered the tool she'd been looking at, head inclined at the curious statement Yastreb had made.  Not the only ones busy?  Turning to ask what he meant, her hand hit something soft and squishy beside her, startling a yelp from her before she even glanced at what it was.  When she did look she grimaced.  "Kesedi..."

There was no noise coming from the practice room, therefore it was safe to assume it was empty. Therefore, in Peetah's mind, it was safe to assume it was his. People kept objecting if he just stayed in one room all day for some reason. It wasn't as though their twiddling had any value.

Violin under one arm he headed in and then paused, squinting at the unexpected light.

"What are you doing?" he demanded. "This is a music room!"

Auraya frowned in concentration as she adjusted the plate full of fruit displayed in proud splendor on a stool in the middle of the room. She regarded the arrangement for a moment, and then moved to tug the basket of glows a few inches to the right. Much better. Satisfied, she returned to the corner where she'd left her sketchpad.

Re: A Cozy Little Chat (attn: Eldvyr, Cremsden)

It was tidy -- the sort of obsessive tidy that came from sharing your home with a number of firelizards. Cremsden had learned fast that anything he liked would only survive if it wasn't accessible and had invested in a number of wooden boxes, the type that locked. 

There was a glass of red wine on the table though, and cards laid out there in two piles. And a one-winged blue firelizard just stepping close enough to carefully swipe the top card from one pile.

Well, it got Cremsden away from the door at least, and almost sprinting back to the table. "Oh no no no, don't you fecking *dare*.."

"Coming!" The call drifted through the door, though it was a minute or so before it opened. When it did, Cremsden was carrying his healer bag -- apparently grabbed on the way to the door -- and looked confused to see Eldvyr there. "Uh--" He'd been ready to race off to an emergency. His brain didn't have a ready response listed for this though.

Re: Queen's Prerogative atten: Any dragon/Foreth

T'od had a particularly tricky piece of carving to do, and Awsonth had suggested a place by the waterfall would have more moisture in the air. It might make the wood softer and easier to shape, had been the bronze's thinking. T'od had been happy to give the idea a go. The pair were settled on the shore, T'od intent on his project, when Awsonth noticed they were about to have company. A simple twitch of his tail caught T'od's attention and the rider looked up. Just in time to feel some of the light spray from Foreth's grand entrance.

((Good day, Foreth.)) Awsonth sent with a gentle rumble. ((Is all well with you and yours?))

OOC: the dragon's rider can be there too, and multiple dragons welcome.

Kassia had give Foreth the approval to clear an area by the lake to give the two of them and Razelth and Delysia some privacy. Unfortunately, Kassia's favorite spot was near the waterfall and therefore a spot frequented by other dragons and riders. Foreth liked the area as well, but it was rare that she was given permission to send the other dragons away. She might try anyway, but that wasn't the point.

She landed with a splash in the lake, spraying anyone in the area with lake water, and then settled into the water. It was comparatively cool from the hot air under the sun she took her nickname from, but still comfortable. She took in her surroundings to gauge how much clearing she'd need to do.



Re: Bath time (attn Teyra / T'od)

Swept off his feet, T'od had been caught completely by surprise. "Awsonth! What the feck!" he exclaimed in an infuriated tone, "Teyra, are you alright?" He reached a hand out to her then realised there was another wave coming, albeit smaller, from Stakarth's endeavour and tried to grab hold of Teyra to steady her before it hit.

Awsonth regarded him with tolerance. ((It is only water.))

"Oh, all sorts of things. Growing up a trader brat gave me plenty of opportunities..." And then she was swamped by the wave. As she resurfaced, her hair was all in her face and she shook her head trying to clear it. She coughed once, then laughed as she felt Stakarth's amusement, and the little green dragon stood up on her back legs in the water, and dropped herself back down into the lake in a dragon style belly flop.

"A wild child?" T'od was intrigued, "Tell me more, what sort of mischief did you used to get up to?"

Awsonth snorted. Surely Stakarth didn't think that she, with a much smaller mass than him, would be able to make a larger wave? But he was willing to humour her if he had to. Without another sound he dropped his full weight back into the water, sending a large wave towards the unsuspecting riders. ((There!)) he sent to Stakarth. ((Now it's your turn!))

The tone of the blue flits scolding changed as the strange man went nearer to his pet. But he didn't dive bomb or anything like that. Instead he went down, landing on the tip of Stakarth's wing, watching the pair avidly. The green dragon didn't seem to care one bit about her small percher. Lali flipped his wings closed over his back. As if trying to get the last word about the subject.

Teyra closed her eyes, ignoring the scolds. She wasn't a little girl anymore, and sometimes Lali didn't seem to realize that. But he was a good flit, and well trained other than his scolding. She swam a little closer, she was good at treading water, she had gotten used to it a long time ago as she'd always been pretty slight, and when others were still on the sand, she was not.

Once they were in to the water a bit, well it didn't take long at all before the rather slight woman couldn't touch the bottom anymore. She ducked under the water, scrubbing her face and hair rapidly. Emerging, though still  a few mud splats were visible, her blonde hair, and freckles were now rather evident. 

Stakarth, well she had no such reservations and splashed right into the lake. Proud as could be. Once she was mostly submerged, a smallish blue flit appeared above the pair, chittering at both of them in a most disapproving fashion. If a dragon could be said to roll her eyes, the skinny little green did so. She ducked her head under the water and blew air out as bubbles at the scolding blue.

Teyra, who actually could, did roll her eyes, then looked over at T'od. "Yea they have all kinds of scents, even some kinda piney ones. And don't mind Lali, he's been my protector for ages and doesn't much like when Stakarth and I go getting all dirty."

Awsonth was happy to follow, although he knew that if he started splashing about there would be some very wet people due to his size. That would be inconsiderate of him, to say the least.

Though growing up with traders, I've learned a bit about anything, and there's a shop down there who makes this truly lovely scented soap. Worth the extra trip." Teyra grinned a little and waved towards the lake. "Come on then Stakarth let's get you rinsed shall we?"

The spry little green raised her head high, not the least bit ashamed of her mud, and walked into the water with high splashy steps. ((Oh as long as I want, or as long as I am allowed. They aren't always the same, you can come join me if you want.))

Teyra rolled her eyes a bit at Stakarth's spirited splashing, but followed her in muddy clothes and all. And well why not? They were dirty too.

"So you wanted to get clean and smell nice, and she wanted to get muddy and smell dirty," T'od chuckled softly. "Clearly a conflict of interest between you. I think you'll have to take it in turns. I mean, I assume Stakarth realises you can't go to drills covered in mud..."

You never itch afterwards? The bronze's mindtone was thoughtful. It definitely sounded like it had exfoliating or moisturising effects. I will ask my rider to take us there sometime. I must investigate for myself. He took the mind picture from the green, nodding slowly in acknowledgement. And how long do you leave it on for?

"I'd sure appreciate that. I still don't know where she comes up with this stuff. I mean I went in to buy some soap, there's a shop that with amazing scents, and I come out to her flopping about in the river, looking more a brown than green!" Of course this wasn't the first time, and likely would not be the last either.

((It feels lovely I never itch after. Here it looks like this.)) The green's mind filled with a small dock, a wide floodplain, the river with many channels heading into the ocean, and the spot with her special mud, three sandbars away from the town nearby. ((But now mine tells me I must be clean. It is alright though. we will go back soon.))

"I'm T'od, my bronze is Awsonth," the bronzer replied with an answering smile, "Well, I'll take your word for it. Hopefully she won't take too much time to clean up! I'm happy to help you, if you'd like?"

Awsonth looked Stakarth over carefully. It is possible that such deep, fine silt is extremely good for the hide. Softening and cleansing properties, perhaps. I believe that there are some ladies who would want to try it for themselves. Will you show me pictures of where it was?

Teyra couldn't help smiling a little at the bronze rider, as she took his hand to get up. Once on her feet she told him, "Thanks, I'm Teyra, this mudball is Stakarth. Somewhere under there is a green dragon believe it or not." There wasn't much that could be told about Teyra at the moment, other than she had long hair and golden eyes, and was a tiny little thing. The rest, like her dragon was covered currently in mud.

Stakarth rumbled happily at the bronze ((We went to where the river joins the sea, it drops lots of mud there. Mine went to buy some things, and I decided to take a mud bath while I waited. It was totally worth the looks on some of the people's faces.)) She snorted once at the thoughts. ((You'd think they'd never seen a muddy dragon before!))

Hiding a smirk as the greenrider fell over, T'od went across and extended a hand to help her up. "My lady?" he said courteously, "May I help you?"

Awsonth rumbled at the green. You are incredibly covered. Where did you find such a deep wallow? Was it warm mud or cool? Perhaps this was useful information that he could pass on to someone else at a later date.

Teyra took a moment to reply. Both rider, and dragon were covered in a grey brown muck. The mud was seemingly everywhere on the skinny green, but she didn't seem the least bit concerned. In fact she looked obscurely pleased with the mess she'd created. Teyra, had been tugging at the last bit of straps, the mud had effectively glued shut, and when it gave, she toppled over, landing on her butt in the sand. 

"Shards, but that one was stuck!" Only then did she seem to notice the bronze pair landing nearby. She sat up, wiping a grimy hand across her forehead and gave him a bashful smile. 

"Uh sorry about that, yes it is a lovely day..." Teyra would have continued, perhaps appologising for their appearance, but Stakarth took up the conversation, ((Yes it is, it was a lovely day, and I found mud. It feels so nice on my hide.))

But if we bath now I can dry in the sun without needing to move. Awsonth as usual was being.. not exactly lazy, but conserving the strength in his back legs. If there was no need for him to take flight again after the bath, why should he? Then you can go and eat, and we can fly back up later.

T'od couldn't fault his logic, which was no surprise,so he agreed and the pair winged their way down to the lake. One of their preferred spots was already taken by a number of splashing and cavorting young dragons, so they went a little further than normal. Coming down by a green pair, whose names T'od wasn't sure of, he waved anyway as he removed Awsonth's harness.

"Lovely day for it, isn't it?" he called across to the green's rider.

Re: Is this normal? (attn Vashinta / Ishkana)

Ishkana cocked her head. "Limited..." she mused, "Would that be a politer way of saying narrow-minded, mam?" She offered a sudden grin. "Everything is very different *here*, in the Weyr, but that doesn't mean it's wrong. It's just different viewpoints and values, right?"

“Nothing at all to worry about.” Vashi made a face “Hold people are often limited in how they see things. Anything different is to be rediculed because it isn’t what they are used to. But that’s a whole other gripe of mine that I probably shouldn’t go in about.”

"Another two or three Turns?" Ishkana digested that information carefully. "I thought it was all supposed to have happened by now. People back at the hold thought it should have." And said so, frequently. The implication had certainly been that she was "different" because she hadn't yet matured physically. "So I've nothing to worry about yet?"

Vashi offered her a gentle smile. “Nothing is wrong with you.” She reached out and gave her a hug. “Some girls- young women- take longer to develop.” She looked at her seriously. “Some don’t start developing until sixteen or seventeen.

Ishkana definitely was uncomfortable with the subject, but as a new healer apprentice it was stuff she needed to know about. "Mam," she said immediately once they were in the smaller room, "I know what's meant to happen to a woman's body when she matures, but..." She gestured at her relatively flat chest and lack of curves. "Nothing's happening, and I've fourteen Turns! Is something wrong with me?"

Vashi blinked away from the notes she was rereading on a patient before giving the girl a warm smile. “We can talk. Would you like to talk here or somewhere more” she paused a moment, glad she was a woman and this wouldn’t be as easily misconstrued before offering “private.”

Ishkana was starting to settle in to her new life in the Weyr. It still had its very odd moments and she still wasn't entirely comfortable with some of the things that went on, but it was quite possibly a normal reaction from someone holdbred as she was. She didn't know that for certain, but she knew she had to get used to it.

There were some things though that she really wasn't sure of - one of them being her. And learning healing meant she knew a little more than before. Enough to know that something wasn't quite right.

When she found a relatively quiet time, she approached one of the more senior healers for some advice. "Vashinta, mam? Do you have a little time so I could speak with you please?" she asked tentatively. This wasn't going to be easy, but it needed doing.

Nerenth had just pulled his head up out of the water, and was shaking it to clear the drop from his eyes when he was swamped by a wave from the gold that had just splashed down. He gave the queen a rumble of welcoming, then shook his head again and decided to float for a while. It was pleasantly cool here by the waterfall, and he was enjoying the quiet time.

OOC: the dragon's rider can be there too, and multiple dragons welcome.

Kassia had give Foreth the approval to clear an area by the lake to give the two of them and Razelth and Delysia some privacy. Unfortunately, Kassia's favorite spot was near the waterfall and therefore a spot frequented by other dragons and riders. Foreth liked the area as well, but it was rare that she was given permission to send the other dragons away. She might try anyway, but that wasn't the point.

She landed with a splash in the lake, spraying anyone in the area with lake water, and then settled into the water. It was comparatively cool from the hot air under the sun she took her nickname from, but still comfortable. She took in her surroundings to gauge how much clearing she'd need to do.

The waterfall sparkled in the sunlight, much like the first time Neffeyn had seen it after his arrival at Arolos.  As such the greenrider had swam out a short distance toward the waterfall, leaving the freshly cleaned and oiled Aryorath resting in the water.  Her head was lowered bringing her nose down just above the level of the water as she searched for anything moving underneath.  With her attention on the water she didn't notice the gold's approach until the water splashed over her side.

Aryorath's head snapped up looking in the direction the water had came from, but at seeing the gold she bobbed her head respectfully to her.
