Spring, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights:
Red Cyanide

Upcoming Hatchings:
Amber Era

Western Hold welcomes new blood in the form of a young couple, Lord Holder Basasius and Lady Holder Baria. A grand Gather is being hosted by Western Hold to welcome their new Lord and Lady.

While the new Lords settle into Western there has been talk and speculation about the western continent's other Hold. It has been two turns since his wife's passing in the south, when will Lord Callum decide to take up a new wife?

Spring has woken an abundance of plant life across Pern with intermittent spring showers helping to sate the growth's never ending thirst. With the end of snow and cold comes Thread once more; Dalibor's wings have no doubt been reduced due to losses over the winter but none the less they persevere.

Run. Run run run. Kida needed to run and she needed to run now. Prizes cradled to her chest, Kida booked it with the speed of someone who was once a troublesome child. Her head was ducked down, loose strands of honey blond being tugged at by the air and by claws. Yes. Claws. Kida had mistakenly thought a nest was abandoned, only for the mother to appear right as she was picking up a few eggs. Kida, being an idiot, didn’t even set the eggs back. She just ran. In her head she could hear Kookath’s laughter as the yellow soared above her. She dodged as the Queen betweened to her side, ducking low and putting on a bit more speed.

Yea yea, laugh it up chuckles. Get down here and scare her off? Please?

The laughter increased, but Kida had to ignore it. There was no way she was letting a queen firelizard tear into her. The sand underfoot was unsteady and the wind bit right through her, freezing her to the bone as she made her advances. All she had to do was get to the weyr. Once there, the amount of dragons would run the queen off. Shards, she hoped so at least. Kelp wrapped around one leg, seeing cold slime into her sock and pants hem.

Thankfully, when she skidded into the Weyr, Kida chanced a look behind her to see the mother was gone. Kookath wound around in the air above her, banking some so he could spiral down to the ground. His laughter was no longer just mental, but loud in her ears as well. Kida crouched to the ground, hands on her knees as she bent over, trying to slow her breathing as best she could.

Just had to snag’em didn’tcha?

The voice in her head wasn’t mocking, but slightly exasperated. Did she really need more firelizards?
Shove it, they’re not all for me. See, Kida had a plan. There was someone she knew who had quite a few flits, and well, while she wasn’t exactly his best friend, Kida figured there was no harm in bringing him a gift. Pulling the bag close, she looked at the trio of large eggs in the knapsack. Big always meant better, right?

How do you feel about visiting your brother for a bit? It wasn’t much of a question, really. More rhetorical than anything, because Kida was already pulling herself up on her straps. Kookath just snorted, but rose to the air anyways.
Which brother?
Wobath. Let him know we’re coming. Kookath didn’t argue. He enjoyed spending time with the brown, even if his rider was a bit more acerbic than Kookath generally prefered.

Wobath! My Kida has a gift for yours. Make sure he’s decent, cuz we’re coming up!

'Kookath and His are coming.'

"What?"

A'dran, who was busily pacifying a fussy Wonder with an extra oiling, paused in his ministrations. Why in name of Faranth would Kida be coming up here? Some sort of news or emergency? If that were so, why not have Kookath relay the information through Wobath. He rose from where he sat cross legged, earning a grumble of protest from his half-grown copper, and fetched an undershirt from where it laid draped over the back of a chair. So what if a guy wanted to walk around in just his trousers in his own weyr? It's not like he expected company ever.

As he went to open his trunk to pull out an over shirt, A'dran found it covered in flitters. Most were barely a season old and still rather small. He tried to wave them away, but the green decided that his action was an invitation, and promptly climbed up his arm. Warrior crooned as she wiggled her way to his shoulder. Hers just needed a cuddle! He sighed and arched a brow at the rest perched there. The black and pink leapt away to play with the blue already making lazy circles in the air. And the cyan, well, she gave him a pleading look.

"Wish..." A small smile smile pulled at the corner of his mouth. He scratched her headknobs and smoothed a hand over her neck, "I gotta finish getting dressed. Go check on Winter for me, will you? Please?" With what was easily interpreted as a pout, the cyan left the chest to go investigate a nearby dresser. Within the bottom drawer was a special pot of sand meant for keeping eggs warm. Or, in this case, a delicate white firelizard. The adult cyan dwarfed the fledgling, and Winter shrank away, curling up tighter upon herself at the sight of the female. But after a moment and a little coaxing from Wish, Winter relaxed and gave a tiny warble. She was fine. The sand was so very warm and safe.

A'dran tugged on a proper shirt and was buckling his belt when Wobath peeked inside his living quarters to announce the arrival of his yellow brother. "Right. Right. One moment," he shuffled out, hoping he didn't need to be wearing boots for this conversation. Or that a green essentially plastered to his face like a leech wouldn't be too much of an issue. As he stepped out, much of his Fair followed, gathering in the higher parts of Wobath's cavernous home, or even settling on the Brown himself.

"What are you doing here?"

Sometimes it was best to cut straight to the heart of the matter when someone just decides to pop in unexpectedly.

Kookath landed on the edge of the brown’s weyrledge delicately, though he was not a particularly graceful dragon, there was no denying he was good on the wing. He had barely touched down before Kida was sliding her way from his back.

What no thank you? His laugh split the otherwise quiet air and Kida patted his shoulder. That would have to be enough thanks for now. She knew with the eggs in her bag, there was only so much time. And Kida didn’t want to be covered in firelizards.
She had been ready to barge in when A’dran appeared.

“Oh!” She was a bit surprised, though she had heard Kookath relay his message.
“I got something for you! Or somethings. Er. You like firelizards right?” She was pretty sure he did, if the one practically plastered to his face was any indication. She had to admit, she was fretting a bit that he wouldn’t want the gift, seeing as he already had quite a few flits. But she was betting he would.

Slinging her knapsack from her shoulder she opened it up carefully and rolled down the sides so he could easily see inside before offering it to him.
“Found a nest. Couldn’t grab them all, but I figure I’d share the little bounty I had.” Three eggs sat carefully wrapped in a kerchief at the bottom of the bag. Even now they were wiggling a bit, obviously close to hatching.

“I know you have quite the fair, but well. I can’t keep them all. Quince would likely take offense to that.” Truthfully, Quince would likely kill them. The green was not known for her sharing. The only reason she put up with pillies was the fact that they didn’t infringe on her bond.
The green, thankfully, was not around. It seemed Kida had the smarts to leave her pets at home when she went poking around the beach. So there was no fear of flit genocide today.
“I mean if you don’t want ‘em I am sure I can find someone else, but you were my first pick. Ah, just consider it an apology for poking too much last time we spoke at length.”

Eggs. Kida came barging into his weyr to share firelizard eggs with him. And they were large, obviously very close to hatching, eggs. A'dran, in all of his charisma and intelligence, smartly said, "Uhhhh. Erk." Before shuffling back a half step. To be honest, it was Kida more than the eggs that she presented that startled him more in this moment. He had his hands full with his fair. This was true. But the fact that his classmate was offering him eggs an apology gift made his breath a little unsteady. He wasn't used to apologies. He could see Wobath sprawling in his couch. The Brown had not a care in the world about the yellow and his rider invading his weyr. More firelizards? Bound to keep His busy. His needed to keep busy. Kept him from thinking too much about the past and more grounded in the present. They did not disturb Wobath's routine and it was obvious having a Fair was part of His' Path. So he would rest now. His part done.

"You...ah. You already apologized," A'dran grumbled, grey eyes a little too attentive to the shivering eggs in Kida's possession. Warrior was also looking, visibly excited by their presence. Eggies! She peeled off of his face to leap into the satchel, tiny snout and claws exploring the eggs. They were ready to come into the world. Oh yes they were! "Warrior...get out of there. What are you doing?" She chirped and chittered, sharing what she saw with her Fair. Western, Wisteria and Wrathful were the only ones that were...less than enthused by the prospect of more flits in their ranks. Wonder, of course, deigned to leave A'dran's quarters and roost upon Wobath's head when Warrior shared the image. She was intrigued. It appeased her Queenly instincts to consider more members to bulk her blooming Fair.

"Er, sorry," he looked down. After a deep breath, he stepped forward to remove the green from the bag. The back of his hand brushed one of the eggs...and he heard the distinct sound of shell cracking. Looks like these eggs were hatching now whether he or Kida were ready or not. Warrior trilled. Hers might have removed her from the makeshift nest, but she could see the first of the little ones peeking out. King, she knew on instinct. A little king was about to be born.

Yes, she had apologized… But it was only verbally! And she was quick to make that point.
“Words are nothing without action behind them. And this is my action.” She was intent on foisting at least some of these eggs on him… Preferably all! Kida had her hands full already, though Quintin and Quinzel often kept to themselves, walking themselves out to the lake when they needed a good soak.

She had to laugh when the little green launched herself into the bag. Well she was a bright one. Kida didn’t think he had her last time they spoke at length… Was she new? She guessed so, by the sizing of her. Not quite full grown yet, still with the look of a hatching about her. How many had he acquired since they last spoke? Maybe that was why he was seeming reluctant.
“She’s no bother you know. I don’t think she’s going to do anything bad with the eggs, she’s just curious.” Truthfully, she reminded Kida of a young Quince. Except quieter and kinder.
The sound of cracking had her looking into the bag excitedly.

“Perfect! They’re here!” She couldn’t see too well, seeing as Warrior and A’dran’s hand were in the way. But there was no mistaking the sound of an egg cracking. When Warrior moved a bit she could see the unmistakable sheen of a king! How exciting. The egg itself was kicked at, bits of shell flaking off as the firelizard made it’s way into the world. Kida moved the bag so she could get a better look right as the little iron rolled out of his egg.

Instantly he started climbing his way out of the egg, his eyes peering curiously at those outside it. Once at the edge of the opening, the iron paused and bugled, a loud somewhat squeaky trumpeting sound. The sound sent a flashback through her mind. Though in her memory, the sound was a prolonged honk.

“Oh no,” She murmured, which only prompted the iron to look her way. He was a large thing, light in color on top that seemed to drip down his sides to a darker color in patchy bits. He was handsome for sure, but there was no way Kida was going to get stuck with another loudone. Sadly she couldn’t shoo him away as her hands were full of the bag. And from within there was another cracking sound, the sound of more babies breaking into the world.

They're here. They're here! Warrior seemed to call, her eyes swirling with anticipation. The others joined in with low hums of their own. Even the more reluctant of the Fair were curious about exactly what would emerge from this tiny 'nest' Kida carried. A'dran, whose brain was kicking in, finally acted. "Um, they'll need food. Er, follow me." One was already hatched, but if they hurried, maybe they could get them fed and impressed before they went wild. Assuming Kida would follow, the weyrling went into his quarters and found the pouch of dried meat he kept on his person as treats for his flits. No doubt Kida would notice the, ah, number of new flits when they crowded into this far smaller room to keep an eye on him and the eggs. Not quite knowing what else to do, he wandered back to Kida and motioned for her to place the bag on the chair. It would free up her hands and let her take a piece of meat.

"Here. That little iron is staring at you," he murmured. "He's probably hungry." Of course he tried his hardest not to look into the bag. But the fact that he was holding these strips of dried meat told more than words ever could. Whatever came out of those shells would worm its way into his heart like the others did. No doubt about it. So if one came his way, he wouldn't go rejecting it. Further cracking made him glance down at last. A second iron had joined the first, and was huddled in the midst of his shattered shell, gazing around at this big new world. He was quiet. Wary. Watchful. As if he were waiting for something. Something big.

And big did happen.

That cracking was the sound of the third egg hatching. And hatch it did.

In an explosive shatter, it flung away the shell, and let out a battlecry. Greenish hued wings splayed, revealing a thin, wiry bronze. He was all slim libs and muscle, almost frightening in his sharp edges and wickedly, whirling eyes. A'dran blinked. The bronze took a swipe at his brothers. He clawed harshly at the second iron, who batted him away with resigned patience, before letting out a shriek and trying to scrape at the first born. What a menace!

Warrior’s exuberance was not unfounded. The iron sniffed the air, looking around at those who gathered. But his eye kept catching on Kida. What was she doing? Was she his mother? No, no she was not. She wasn’t even a firelizard! So who was she and why? Kida all the while was trying to keep up with what was going on.

Wordlessly, she followed after A’dran, not even thinking of anything other than the little ones that were hatching. She hadn’t brought food. Idiot, thankfully he was more prepared than he was. The number of flits she encountered along the way was quite numerous. Her thoughts had been right, his fair had grown. Why she hadn’t seen this many flits before, not even with her own mother. Hmm. Was it was for her to bring him more? Perhaps not. But the deed was now done.
Accepting the meat she blinked and shook her head.

“Ah no, I couldn’t, not really, I mean I have Quince and she can be…” She trailed off, grimacing. The bag was set down and she took a step back only for the iron to lean her way.

Thankfully she was distracted from having to make a decision by further hatching. Oh! Another iron! She must have grabbed some good ones. It wasn’t even a full minute later before the second egg hatched spraying bits of shell and goop everywhere. Kida took a step back as the firelizard that just hatched let out a warcry. Instantly she was drawn in again to see the little drama. The first iron was as well. He peered over the edge of the rim of the bag, his eyes whirling uneasy colors.

The firstborn let out another bugle and this time charged the bronze, his wet wings flaring out to catch the air in a semi-glide. If his brother was going to be rough, why, he’d be rough right back!

His brother was bigger, but the bronze was far from deterred. As the iron pounced, he hissed, scrambling to join the brawl. The second iron shuffled back to the far edge of the bag and stoically observed the pair. What a bother. He looked up again at the world above. Two humans peered down. A female and a male. His brother claimed one, the female. She looked worried. The other, the male, seemed like he was more annoyed than fearful. As if he had dealt with situations like these before. Carefully, mindful of his claws, he climbed up and took his first proper look around this new world. Firelizards dotted the space. How curious. They were a Fair. There was even a Queen amongst them. Many of them were small, like him, all but one not quite grown.

He spread his wings and fluttered to the back of a chair, perching there to gaze down onto the fighting kings. He would intervene if he must. But for now, he would watch. Patience was a virtue after all.

A'dran, however, was not quite content letting the two brawl it out in the bag. He grabbed a piece of meat and dared to stick his hand inside, trying to coax them apart by bribing them with food. The bronze kicked at his iron sibling, clearly out for blood, but he paused at the sight of meat. Food. Hungry. He was so hungry. A'dran pulled his hand out of the bag, keeping the meat in sight. Maybe...maybe it was working?

"Power struggle?" he asked, peering at Kida.

The second iron chirped as if to say perhaps. He turned faceted eyes on the male human. He liked this one. And he had food. He liked food even more.

The iron was not one to sit and watch like his brother, not when their bronze sibling was causing such trouble! He had to learnm that actions had repercussions, and the repercussions were not always soft and nice. Instantyly he went for a headbut, using his headknobs to crash against the other. It might not have been the wisest course of action but it was still work trying! Tooth and claw came out to play as he and the bronze rolled around snapping at each other.

Kida watched with fearful intensity, looking to A’dran. Should she try to pull them apart? Would that work, or would it just move their battle onto her? She didn’t know what to do. But A’dran once again proved himself the smarter of the two. As he offered the meat Kida held up her own piece of meat, waving it slowly over the firelizards. She looked to the second iron, thinking about how at least one of them was sensible.

The first iron, however, detangled himself from his brother the moment he saw food. But this food was from the male human, and he did not want the male human. His brother could have him. Shells, both could have him, as long as the bronze made no motion to the one he had picked as his. Kicking one final time at his brother, the iron looked up to Kida and opened his mouth expectantly.

Was she just… Supposed to feed him? Kida eyed the firelizard, knowing exactly what would happen if she fed him. The iron didn’t give her much of a choice though. As soon as he noticed she was not putting the meat in his mouth, he started his climb. Bit by bit he scaled the bag until he could hook onto the long sleeve of her shirt and haul himself up. Only then did Kida finally give the persistent little thing the meat. Eyes whirling rainbows, the iron munched on his meal, the food doing a little to help his attitude thusfar.

The bronze growled at the iron he tussled with, rolling into his belly to watch him wait for food like a fool. Of course, eventually he got the motivation to go for what he wanted, but that didn't make him look any less pathetic in the bronze's eyes. Bah! He shifted his gaze away from the human female and his eldest brother to focus on the other piece of meat. His second sibling was eyeing it with consideration. Oh no he wasn't going to get to eat before him! That was his. He leapt up and hauled his way out of the bag, snarling at the iron with all the fierceness of a red, and snapped up the meat A'dran held. As the meal settled in his gut, he calmed. Yes. This was what he wanted. Needed. He fixed his gaze on the human male. He would give him food like he deserved. As the human pulled his hand way, the flit jumped onto his wrist and settled there, staring, daring him to try and shoo him away.

"Oh, that is just lovely. The angry one likes me," A'dran murmured. He sighed and offered another nibble to the bronze, who, wanting the food to continue, hummed in an almost meek manner. Oh, how clever was he. A'dran shook his head, "I'll call him Whiplash." Because that is what the weyrling felt like he had right now. This little terror was acting all helpless as soon as he realize the great provider of food would keep giving treats.

The second iron, who noted his eldest sibling's possessiveness, decided that it was time to just move along. No point in fussing with him. He would be find with his younger brother and this Fair. Not even his horrible attitude bothered him overly much. So he spread his wings and fluttered to A'dran chest, clinging there until the weyrling fed him too.

"Well then. You're a Watcher, aren't you? Guess between you and Wisdom, you can keep your brother in check."

The iron chirped.

He could agree to that.

A'dran rolled his eyes and accepted his fate. There were worse things in life than being flit nip.

Kida eyed the little iron as he ate his food. For the most part he ignored her while he ate. But the moment his belly was full he started to climb over Kida, just about the time his angrier little brother started to get his own food. Kida just laughed softly.
“Well I guess it’s better than him going wild, right? You’ve got enough that someone will step up and teach him not to be a prat.” She smiled a bit. This was not exactly how she expected it to go, but well, she didn’t mind.

The iron moved his way up her arm to perch there like some itty bitty shiny bird. Kida marveled at the way the light shined off his hide, the patchy silvery color leading into darker blue-grey.
“Well well.” She murmured softly. He bugled loud and clear, claiming her as his own.

Strewth Kida I heard him out here, did you get another loud one? He spoke as if he wasn’t the loudest in her general entourage. Kida just blanched a bit.
“Thank Faranth I no longer have a roommate.” She couldn’t even begin to explain bringing in another notoriously loud pet into the weyr. Thankfully, for the time being, it was only Kida and Kookath, and her motley crew.

“So you got names for them, I’m guessing?” Her own little lizard curled himself around her upper arm, claws digging into her flightjacket as he looked at A’dran with more curiosity than he showed earlier.

“I’m not sure what I’m gonna name this guy. Maybe Quell since he tried to quiet the bronze? I dunno yet.” HEr shoulders lifted in a lighthearted shrug as she looked to the rest of A’dran’s fair.
“Boy, you’ve got a lot. I bet they’re useful for searching for things. So many pairs of eyes…”

"He'd be an utter terror of a wild," A'dran muttered, tempted to peel the pair off his person so he could continue getting dressed. Pulling on a jacket and boots would be easier without them sticking to him. But perhaps leaving the weyr could wait a little longer. These two needed cleaning up and Wonder probably would like her oiling finished since he was still in the doghouse with her. He still wasn't sure what he did to displease her this week, but making her hide nice and shiny seemed to appease her mood. He absently guided Watcher to a shoulder to that the iron no longer hung from his chest. "Uh. Yeah. Couple of 'em should teach him manners." Hopefully. Maybe. If he was lucky.

Wonder, he knew, wouldn't tolerate too much attention grabbing behavior. She made that evident with Wrathful, having taken to pinning the burgundy if he made too much of a fuss.

A snort of amusement escaped the weyrling when Kida's iron repeated that obnoxious noise he favored and the girl remarked about no longer having a roommate. It was nice...he did have to admit to that. Not that he was ever alone. Having to share his weyr with anyone would require that person to have a high appreciation for firelizards and the mayhem that followed having so many. "They name themselves, in a way," he said. A'dran wasn't the most creative soul. When she made note of the number, he shrugged and shuffled to his dresser, kneeling to peek inside that pot of sand on the bottom drawer. Winter peeked up at him. She was still tiny compared to these newly hatched kings. "It wasn't intentional. Most of them came from a wild queen clutch that decided to latch onto me."

He straightened, satisfied that the white was doing well in her sandy nest.

"As for useful...they can be when they wish."

Like humans, some were just predisposed to being unhelpful. Much like the spotted purple that now lay on A'dran's pillow like the Western felines he was named after; or the scarred black whose sole mission in life seemed to be to guard his pink sibling from everything that looked her way.

A small smile crept on his lips against his will.

For all their many faults, he adored them. Even the new menace he just impressed.

"I'm fortunate Wobath is very much a brown." And little bothered him. A'dran went to the small pot and cloth that laid on the floor from where he'd been oiling Wonder earlier. He picked up the rag and began to mop away remnants of egg goop and shell from his two little kings. "I guess...I guess I don't mind either."

The iron, who was making himself known as Quell in her mind, slowly slunk his way to her shoulder, kicking bits of hair out of the way as he settled himself, like a mirror image of his brother on A’dran’s shoulder. His wing buffeted her ear and Kida frowned, shifting from one foot to the other. Why did they always sit near her ears? What was with that? It wasn’t like she couldn’t hear them loud and clear anyways. A’dran’s fair was quite impressive though. She had to admit, he was getting quite the collection and they were all so different and unique.

“Oh? That’s kind of how my mother got all hers. Save for her queen, they all latched on her from wild clutches.” Despite Kida’s years of firelizard hunting, she had only ended up with Quince from her mother’s firelizard clutch. Usually she handed the eggs off to other people when she found them. Otherwise she might have a sizable fair. But she had to admit, she liked her pillies better. There was something about the little bugs that clicked with her.
That… actually might have been the first smile Kidanyr had ever seen from the man. She did a slight double take. Of course, it was due to firelizards. He seemed fond of them, even if many were foisted on him from people like her and the wilds.

“Oh yea? I’ll admit Quince is no help. Mostly she loiters around and gets in fights with inanimate objects.” Questioning images came from Quell as he shifted on her shoulder. She pulled up an image of the green, and instantly he recoiled. The reaction made her laugh out loud. Was he in for a rude awakening when he finally met her in person.

She glanced down the hall to where Wobath and Kookath were, the other’s muted laughter reaching her ears at points. He was indeed a good brown, and a very good example of his color’s temperament.

“They’re like your family now, right? I mean, mine are, as odd as they all are. They’re like a family I put together for myself. And that makes them special… I dunno. Maybe I just see it weird.” She shrugged offhandedly.

“Wonder’s looking beautiful by the way. She’s growing so nicely. You must be diligent in oiling her.” Quell chirped quietly at her, trying to get attention back on him. Reaching up, she let him crawl into her hands, rubbing a thumb over his head carefully. She had to remember, that when they were this little, they needed all the attention they could get.

"Y-yeah." A'dran coughed and tried to hide a touch of embarassment by turning his head. They were like his family and he didn't quite like admitting that aloud. Wobath and his Fair, they all grounded him at Dalibor. Made his wandering spirit less inclined to go off running after an old memory. Fiskya...Had he failed her? Did this complacency mean that he'd abandoned her? Finding his little sister was the sole reason he accepted the Search two turns ago. Now...now his once urgent quest sat lighter on the back of his mind, replaced by thoughts of his dragon.

He looked down at the pair of kings. They were clean and now fully taking in the Fair they joined. And said Fair was examining them. Most importantly, the copper was examining them. She dropped from her perch high in the ceiling to settle by the oil bucket. Well, her eyes demanded. She was waiting. A'dran gave the cloth in his hand a small shake to flick bits of shell away, "She's a copper. You probably know how...particular they can be."

As if she would allow herself to be treated less than like a queen. She chose A'dran because she knew he would bend to her whims and provide her desires. He had the devotion to worship her properly. And he even helped her gain a proper Fair to lead. Oh yes, she was content. But one had to keep Theirs on his toes, or risk them thinking they could get away with skipping oiling day. Wonder folded her wings and tilted her chin up. A'dran sighed and dropped cross-legged back onto the ground. Oh how she adored Hers. She'd remind him of that after he made her hide nice and glossy.

"Well, you two, you gonna say hi or not?" A'dran asked the kings. After a pause and a hint of a scuffle, both fluttered down to where the queen sprawled on the ground. He shook his head and looked up at Kida, "Er...by the way. Thanks."

Apology accepted.
