Summer, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights:
Green Jasmith

Upcoming Hatchings:
Red Cyanide

Slightly chilly spring days slowly but surely grow warmer as spring gives way to summer. Already the season is proving to be an unseasonably warm one, thankfully breezes have been common giving some relief. Dalibor's denizens can be found frequenting the Weyr's lake more often than in the season before, soaking up all of Rukbat's warm rays while they last.

Though not as common as the springtime there are lingering showers that come and go; thunderstorms are suddenly more common than they were in spring. Word is spreading that Fort Weyr has had an interesting outcome at their most recent hatching: An Orange broke shell and Impressed a genderneutral Candidate.

Kiveena was doing alright with more than a turn of Thread fighting behind her and what happened in the Southern Continent, due to lack of any other explanation she was still blaming that flower that she found. Maenta had seemed to fit in fairly well with her other three firelizards that she had already, then again that was almost a turn ago so she did have a good amount of time to fit in as well as one with her personality could be expected to. Shiff was still his paranoid self, though he did seem to be more concerned about what was going on in the other weyrs both inhabited and uninhabited at the time that he was doing it, at least he so far cleared her weyr in his opinion for now.

Since Kiveena was more or less used to her pillie’s routine, seeing as he had been around since her early days as a Candidate at Dalibor Weyr, she didn’t really try to monitor what exactly he was doing. And Parvelet was doing a half-decent job of things, at least in his opinion though in others almost completely useless, noting over two dozen things that he had to bring up with Kiveena. Like what is with that tri-coloured Black, or was it a small Burgundy firelizards were an awfully confusing lot there weren’t any Burgundies (or Reds for that matter) in pillies after all, who acted like a feline.

FlittFace was not one to take intrusion lightly. He was the kind of firelizard who claimed spaces as his own and acted as something of an alarm to his rider. Therefore, as soon as he spotted the pillie appear in his rider's Weyr, the black sounded the alarm from his hidden position perched high in an alcove on the wall. The loud, high pitched screeching was enough to cause C'ian to practically jump from his place where he was, shockingly, working.

He turned to look at the black and then spotted the bug entering the weyr. Well, it wasn't one he recognised and it certainly wasn't one of his own. C'ian had never been interested in acquiring one himself but they were interesting and somewhat amusing.
"Lost are ya?" He asked the pillie, turning and resting his arms on his knees to look at it.

Honestly, it didn't seem at all lost. Looked like it had meant to be there. Still, amusing little thing nonetheless.
"Well, make yourself at home good sir. We have lots of things to enjoy here including annoying a certain purple dragon if you're really keen."
Said purple dragon was currently sleeping in the bowl but would return if C'ian wanted to recall the beast.

@Boo

Ah ha! Shiff knew that there was there was something awfully suspicious around the weyrs that Kiveena was living in, what’s a Black firelizard making such a racket from a pillie just wandering through the weyrs looking for trouble like FlittFace. Only problem was the obvious one, he could hardly get at the firelizard seeing how far up he was to bring him to Kiveena to show how the pillie wasn’t just a fool that there were things around the weyr that no one else seems to recognize the danger with. stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip! said Shiff something to the tune of ‘Come down here so I can bring you to Kiveena anyone making that much noise can’t up to anything good!’

STIP stip stip stip stip stip, stip stip stip stip stip stip stip! exclaimed the Blue something akin to ‘TWO suspicious figures, surely this will be enough for Kiveena to take my warnings seriously!’ Stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip, said Shiff advancing towards the Wingsecond giving a mental image to his bonded saying something like ‘I’m not lost don’t confuse me I know you’ve got something to hide I’ll bring mine here to prove it.’

Though the Burgundyrider the rather fuzzy image it didn’t make her happy, especially since he was trying to antagonize a Winsecond even if it wasn’t an immediate superior. Mine’spillieShiff said Koloth to the Wingsecond’s Purple in his rapid speech pattern not wanting to speak any further he did leave the impression that Shiff was more of an annoyance than anything else.

The firelizard screeched for a while longer before being swooped by Cirrus and ceasing his alarm, although not without a short hiss of complaint. His attention turned briefly on the other firelizard and hence he lost sight of the pillie. FlittFace turned his glare from the blue firelizard back to the pillie as it began making noises.

C'ian too was intrigued by the noises the pillie was making. They all had their own unique sounds, Rosian had Knight so he did know a thing or two about the creatures. It was amusing to C'ian that they could make such diverse noises. He grinned at the apparent agitation from the blue.

Shirath was shortly awakened from his slumber and blearily looked around the bowl.
's a what? He replied, yawning.
Pillies? He turned his attention to C'ian and picked up on what was happening.
Did you try to steal a pillie from someone? I really should report you to Zeuth, you know.
The purple took the the sky and in a short moment appeared in his weyr.

"Now now, there's no need for such language." C'ian told the pillie with a smile as Cirrus flew down to fly small circles around the pillie. The blue, unlike the black, was just excited that there was a visitor. A very fun visitor! A loud one even. That was more exciting than just any visitor.

Stip stip stip stip stip stip stip, said Shiff turning his attention to the Blue firelizard ‘Don’t just stand there help me bring him to Kiveena.’ If there was anything positive by any of the creatures that shared his living space with was that he was determined and protective, too bad it was usually overshadowed by his paranoia, the former trait was certainly on show here seeing as he was trying to climb up to the Black.

Shiff nuisance, said the Burgundy clearly not happy in having to clarify what he was saying to the Purple, exaggerating both words to the point of slowing down his speech to the point of speaking slower than normal speech. If the Purple wanted any further clarification from the younger Burgundy Dragon, he wasn’t likely to get it today, he wasn’t that interested in doing that kind of thing more than once for someone who wasn’t paying attention.

Not wanting this to get any further out of hand Kiveena quickly got onto Koloth not bothering with a harness considering how fast the flight would be over to C’ian’s weyr. The distance wasn’t that big for her or her flying pets, but a pillie especially one that didn’t have that great stamina as with Blues was a little surprising.

The pillie was insistent and Cirrus, being one that liked to a) make friends and http://files.jcink.net/uploads/daliborweyr/smiley/Cool.png occasionally annoy FlittFace was all too happy to try to assist the pillie. So he flew up to where the black firelizard was perched and began trying to harry him back down to the bug. It was with some excited and insistent chirping that he did so. What ensued was something of a struggle between the two before Cirrus managed to grab hold of the smaller firelizard and fall with him towards the floor of the Weyr.

With the clarification received from the burgundy, Shirath yawned again and poked his head into his rider's quarters with mild interest. He observed the falling firelizards and then turned his attention to his chuckling rider.
Apparently it's name is Shiff. Koloth has informed me that he is a nuisance.
"Nah, he's all right I reckon," C'ian replied with a grin, "A good old interruption from work is just what I needed right now anyway."
Not exactly but the charts he had been observing had been making him go quite cross eyed. He would get back to work shortly, it was important after all... But this was also fun.

Roselle may not appreciate the mess that is being created. Shirath observed coolly.
Well, she might not but they weren't causing that much mess. Besides, Cirrus would clean it up no doubt. That pillie looked like he meant to capture FlittFace, something that would be rather amusing to watch for a little while and so long as no one got hurt.

Stip stip stip stip stip stip stip, stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip? said Shiff rather impatiently ‘This is taking an awfully long time, are you sure you’re not in league with him as well?’ Either way he wasn’t in any position to interrogate the two firelizards and the person they were bonded to properly seeing as he was more focused on trying to climb up onto the rock ledge that FlittFace and Cirrus were currently on. His legs weren’t meant for climbing, being better suited for swimming above anything else, even in the best of times.

Koloth landed on the ledge of Shirath’s weyr, though only staying long enough for Kiveena to get off before flying away back to his own weyr. “Shiff! What are you doing, you can’t just barge into another weyr,” said Kiveena clearly annoyed with the pillie.

Stip stip stip stip stip stip, said Shiff flicking his antenna towards FlittFace and then C’ian something to the effect of ‘But I found two suspicious people.’

“Sorry about my pillie coming in to your weyr Wingsecond C’ian, Shiff has a bad habit of wandering around making a big deal of the smallest things.”

Cirrus managed to get FlittFace pinned to the ground and whistled triumphantly over at the pillie. It sure was a lot of fun to annoy his bond brother. Well, only sometimes anyway. Shiff had the right of it, Cirrus reasoned, FlittFace was suspicious sometimes with the way he hid places and watched from above. Always causing trouble. Then again, it was also fun to help the black firelizard. So really, Cirrus had few loyalties except to C'ian. The pillie had been trying to climb up high. It must have been hard not being able to fly around. Such a hard life.

C'ian turned his attention to the dragon that landed on his ledge, Koloth and nodded to his rider. Kiveena he thought her name was. One of the ones that had Impressed at the hatching of Tan Sixwith. He wasn't always so good with names but he tried to pay some attention when they were flying Thread.

"Good day Wingrider Kiveena," he greeted her formally and then grinned, "It's no trouble, I needed a distraction anyway. I mean if you ask me he might have the right of it, my firelizard is a little suspicious."
Distractions were good sometimes. It kept him from wanting to give up and fall asleep. No one could work from dawn until dusk. Well, actually a lot of people could but he wasn't about to admit that to himself.

Stip stip, stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip, said Shiff ‘Now then, all we have to do is to get him over to Kiveena to show that I’m not just paranoid.’ Stip stip stip stip stip, stip stip stip stip stip stip stip, said Shiff now directed to Kiveena as crawled down ‘I’ve got proof right here, the racket he made earlier had to be to hide something.’

“And now he has a firelizard in on this,” said Kiveena sighing. “I’m glad that my firelizards for the most part get along, though Maenta would like the others to be more serious and proper. Can’t say that other people have been as receptive to Shiff wandering into places that he shouldn’t be, like the glue incident though I’m not sure how much I should elaborate on that and that it was a good couple of turns ago. He sometimes gets things at least partially right, though those are few and far between mostly just taking ordinary things and trying to say that they should be treated as suspicious.”

That particular incident happened a while ago, back when she was a Candidate and probably only had her Higat and Tigah back then though just how long that was she didn’t quite remember.

'Yes sir!' Cirrus chirped back to the pillie, still keeping a good hold on FlittFace. He whistled lightly and then began trying to drag FlittFace towards the newcomer. This was a lot of fun actually. Sometimes C'ian pretended to be things he was not. Now Cirrus fully understood the fun of such a thing. FlittFace could be loud too. It was just his way, after all. The new person would know what to do with such a scallywag.

C'ian looked at the young rider with a grin and then back at his firelizards as Cirrus forcibly dragged FlittFace along the ground. Really, he should try wrapping something around the black. He flicked a cloth towards the firelizard and watched as the blue chirped triumphantly and moved his tiny claws to try to wrap the black in the cloth. Tight so he wouldn't be able to escape.

"I mean, they get along sometimes," C'ian responded, "But it's like siblings. Sometimes you fight and then next minute you're thick as thieves."
He waved a hand slightly. Some people were such prudes and super boring. Some people got mad at the smallest things and some people really needed to lighten up.
"Oh do tell me about the glue incident," he prompted, eyes suddenly bright with interest and amusement.

Maybe there was a prank or two that he might be able to play. All in good humour of course. Too bad Q'sis was no longer in Dalibor, it would have been fun to annoy the Tan Rider.

“Just please stop with this, it’s bad enough that I had to come here to try and clarify this situation,” said Kiveena towards the Blue seeing as Cirrus now had Flittface in his claws. “Oh fine then, it is odd for him to make that much noise even if it was because he presumed you were an intruder.”

Stip stip, stip stip stip stip stip stip stip stip? asked Shiff turning towards the Blue firelizard ‘Well then, Cirrus what do you think we should do with FlittFace now?’

“My Blue and Black, firelizards anyways Higat has about as much patience for Shiff as I do, get along most of the time though they have very different personalities though they can hardly stand to be apart from each other for extended periods of time. It happened when I was thirteen turns old while I was a Candidate, plus it happened to someone else for the most part, another Dragon Candidate named Handler who was tyring to glue some leather to the bottom of her socks. I and Shiff kind of just showed up in the immediate aftermath though evidently Handler accidently spilled some glue and her Pink firelizard wound up walking through it.”

For a moment C'ian watched the firelizards. It probably was odd that FlittFace made siren noises when he thought people were intruding but C'ian didn't mind too much. It was more amusing than anything else. The kitchen workers certainly appreciated it the few times the black had alerted them to the presence of Weyrbrat thieves.

"Classic," C'ian responded to the story with a laugh, "When I was a dragon candidate I used to go outside and play my drums. I grew up in a Harper family, you see and the only thing I was good at, besides making up stories, was playing the drums. Although I never really got the hang of signalling I just liked to make a proper racket."
Being a dragon candidate had been a lot of fun. E'kiel was still a good friend and Sir Lazybutt, the puppy he got from the black rider, was still around albeit a little slower these days.
"In my experience, people here don't get too upset about these kinds of things... Usually..." He frowned a little as he thought of some of the red dragons. Well their riders usually weren't as volatile as the dragons.

"Did Handler respond positively?" He asked curiously.

“I haven’t got any family in the Crafts, only an uncle by marriage that I’m sure of though I guess that I could have other more distant relatives, my family have been mostly Holdbred. Having four older brothers made me try to pull my own weight around our cothold though the fact that it was a Crescent Hold didn’t help at all,” said Kiveena not really having much in the way of shared experience outside of being Dragonriders.

“Now that I think about it a little more, Handler was more concerned about someone else aside from me (most likely the Candidatemaster) finding out about the mess considering how it might look without any context. Dragon, her Pink yes it’s a little odd but she also had a Green firelizard named Wher, wasn’t too stuck at least though it did take a lot of trial and error with the cleaning up the glue. Water helped somewhat I guess but it was a pain and was all over the common room tables,” said Kiveena with a thoughtful look trying to remember what exactly happened. Even if it was only three turns ago the details were hazy after the opening exchange, though how much effort the two female Candidates put into cleaning up the mess didn’t help at all.

Such an unusual name for a human, Shirath remarked to the two riders It is normal for one such as you to call their canine Sir Lazybutt but it seems strange to call a child Handler.
"I do recall their family all had strange names. Baker, Rider I think they were all part of the same family." C'ian agreed with his dragon thoughtfully.
He understood why they might want to be careful about causing too much mess. That said, C'ian himself was not one to worry about mess. Usually he was the one causing it particularly when he had been a candidate.

"We had a candidate called Qosis, Q'sis in my class. He was always causing trouble with people. We had a class of about 35 including Z'dyn the Weyrleader. Shirath was quite taken with the two irons in the class. Baihujinth and Chyurath. Barely paid any attention to the ladies."
He turned to his firelizards, FlittFace was now completely wrapped up with nowhere to go and Cirrus was holding on tight enough that it would be hard for the black to between. The blue chirped happily at Shiff and gestured with his tiny foreclaws to the bundle.

@Boo

“Yeah, I didn’t really get to how that works, though Handler was one of the younger ones though that is a rather broad statement,” said Kiveena not really having much else to say about Handler’s family. “I guess that my family’s rather small for a Holdfolk family, having four elder brothers and only two younger sisters though I do have a sister-in-law and a nephew with regards to my eldest brother Barras so that’s something.”

“I’ve heard of Q’sis before though of course it’s all secondhand at best, it’s safe to say that Shirath was from a Queen’s clutch, can’t say the same thing about Koloth though. Koloth’s from Sixwith’s second clutch, there were a couple of sub-Kings and an Orange though only the Orange is still around this Weyr. Koloth didn’t strike me as interested in flights, though he did chase once since graduating more or less to say that he had experienced it.”

Cirrus was more willing to deal with the trouble maker than than any of the firelizards he lived with, seeing the ball that the Blue managed to get his fairmate in. The pillie crawled up to the firelizard prodding the thinking of what to do with the firelizard and whether or not what had happened to him already was enough for now looking towards Cirrus to see what the Blue thought.
