Wedding bells ring out to celebrate the joining of Lord Callum to Lady Shuli. A grand gather has been put together with people from all over Pern coming to celebrate! Crescent is full to the brim with those who wish to show their support and those just looking to make (or spend) a few marks!

Copper Zelsk shook things up at the Copper Class graduation feast by beginning her run shortly after the knots were delivered to her handler. Bronze Osk won Zelsk's maiden run and now a sizable clutch lays on the sands hardening. Not to be outdone by the ground-bound copper, Copper Laanasuth took to the skies the very next day - though her flight was not as cut and dry as the wher's run had been. Offended by the force catch attempt of a presumptuous burgundy Laanasuth betweened to High Reaches Weyr where one of their dragons won her flight. Though she has returned to Dalibor and laid a large clutch for Dalibor's candidates the Weyr awaits the transfer of the dragon sire and his rider, Dalibor's newest Junior Weyrleader.

It had been incredibly hard work. Coupled with his craftswork - which Nevisk had insisted upon, and only gotten more impossibly insistent with as her belly swelled with the growing clutch she was gravid with - there had been an ever-present duty to help his Gold and Raistlin's Red haul stones of moderately heavy size from places all around the Weyr proper; and even outside it. Theran suspected the wild Iron that had sired her clutch had been some sort of point-out, as well, though the Weaver never saw him among the trees. He took Nevisk's word for it, that he was worthy.

Over the course of many nights, a circle of a nest was built up. Nevisk piled and packed the sand with her feet, and Theran worked until late hours to aid his Queen. Everything had to be a certain way. She was fickle about all of it. Only certain stones, and then a myriad of smaller ones that lingered in the inside.

The only ones allowed close to her precious egg-place, were the Red and her handler, and Theran. Everyone and everything else was instructed to stay away; Nevisk promised to kill and eat anyone or anything that drew within striking range. Theran worried immensely for her. She hadn't yet even laid her clutch, and already his wild-laid Gold was territorial over the small, some ten-or-twelve-foot area she intended to lay in.

The sides were built up around three feet tall. Nevisk dug down, she piled up, she moved sand and shifted everything. Theran helped her as best he was able, and from the time she'd begun the process, they didn't leave the Sands. He stayed with her, giving Raisk and Raistlin the option to sleep in their own beds until such a time as she populated the walled-off area with more than herself. Nevisk seemed content to linger, nearly entirely hidden by the wall of interlaid stones, until the night Theran couldn't sleep. He felt uncomfortable, and it took him some time to realize that it wasn't because of something he'd eaten.

I lay. It is done. Nevisk King, come look. Help with. Very tired. She bespoke Hers privately, and Theran roused himself from the cot at the bench he'd been sleeping on for days. Making his way out to the Sands, he helped Nevisk partially bury most of the clutch. Others were moved, once the shells had hardened enough that careful hands wouldn't break them. They were all gathered together, and Nevisk curled her six-foot frame around them, nestled within the high wall.

Raisk. I clutch. Time to come, guard. Make sure nobody in, nobody touch. Der, Desk okay to be here, but not come close. Make sure all stay away. Small-dragons, they come, you eat. Desk. You come, stay with me, Yours. Want you, be clutchmother on sands with. Candidates not allowed, until hatchlings ready. Everybody stay away. Not want egg-stabbers.

Note: Art is here for the sake of the Guessing. Nevisk's nest is NOT VISIBLE to anyone from ground-level. It can be seen from the ledges, and if someone manages to get a flit in without Raisk/Nevisk eating it. People, whers, dragons, or pets that come within striking range (if Raisk, Raistlin, Der, Desk, or Theran don't get them away) will be bitten with lethal intent.
