April 2018 Featured RPG
Welcome
Dalibor is a semi-canon Dragonriders of Pern site. No knowledge of the series or site is required to join; players of all experience levels are welcome here. Founded in 2008 on Proboards and moved to Jcink in 2013, Dalibor has been running for nine years.

News
Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Red Ingoth

Upcoming Hatchings:

Winter is in full swing as the Northwest reaches the middle stages of the cold month, and Dalibor, taking full advantage of a crackdust filled break in Threadfall, is back at it again. Delving into the Southern ice and snow, they have paired with Grove Weyr to fully explore the lands they only slightly uncovered the previous turn during the Jungle Expedition. This, however, will not be a warm and relaxing waltz through the woods; although was it ever that to begin with?

((Will take place after the expedition, so all characters can be present))

Os'nin was in possession of quite a bundle of firelizard eggs. They were wild things, ones he and Vek'ta had found while on patrol. They had spent the last few days watching them, and wouldn't you know it, the things began to harden up nice and firm. They had kept them warm with sands from the hatching grounds and heat of course, and had kept them well tended. And while they had intended to give them out as many had, it seemed they weren't having any of that.

It started with a sound, as his green began to hum, and then the blue. Well, shards, this was happening now! And so he sent Honor and Pevo to get people to snatch these little ones up as they hatched.

His green, honor wasn't the best of listeners and so she didn't care when he said who to find, instead she popped into random places and screeched at people, telling them in her own way to come and follow her with tugs of her claws. And then she was gone again once they got going in the right direction.

And just in time too, for as soon as the first people began to fill out into the bowl where he set the massive basket of eggs the first one began to shake and crack.

When it came to the nonsense of firelizards, little surprised A'dran anymore. Thus when one appeared in front of him, began screaming its head off and clawing at his clothes, he remained alert but calm. It was possible there was an emergency at hand but his own fair wasn't acting anxious or alarmed. They seemed almost excited. Some humming in an anticipatory purr. Wonder led the way when they set in motion, careening high into the air with her colorful family in tow, A'dran trotting after on foot. Shortly, it became obvious exactly what was going on.

Eggs. A large clutch of eggs. Weyrleader Os'nin stood with a full basket, and if the others drifting this way were any hint, that shrieking flit was playing messenger. He was happy to just turn about and walk away, but a few in his fair utterly adored events like these, including a certain green. She could get grabby if he didn't watch her and had swiped eggs from nests in the past. Not wanting to risk that, A'dran resigned himself to watching the hatching from a short distance away, and pointedly held Warrior in his arms. She was happy to cuddle even if she had way too much interest in the eggs than A'dran wished.

After he ascertained that non of his flits would cause too many problems, he relaxed, offering a respectful nod to Os'nin. He was still a weyrling when Laanasuth abandoned her Flight at Dalibor to Fall with a foreign blue. So he had nothing personal at stake when the queen chose Alwanath. But his past couple Turns living at a weyr did leave him marginally wary. Time would tell if this weyrleader would be remembered kindly.

Kiveena wasn’t expecting a screeching Green firelizard to randomly pop into her weyr without any prior warning before disappearing again to who knows where after half dragging her towards the ledge of her weyr. The sight of a large bowl filled with sand and eggs clued Kiveena pretty easily as to what was going on, quickly roping Koloth in taking her down to where there were people assembling for the Hatching.
---
While Garenta hadn’t been terribly interested in getting more firelizards in the time between Bekara Hatching and now but she wasn’t adverse to having a second firelizard when the opportunity arose. When a Green firelizard, presumably owned by the person who was running the Hatching of firelizards, practically forced the Candidate out of the Dining Hall Garenta didn’t protest as much as many other people especially upon spotting the basket and the eggs it contained.
---
Garrnan wasn’t happy about the disturbance by Honor, though she was hardly around before disappearing again seeing as Hilrat was already in the Weyr Bowl at that point though hadn’t spotted the basket and Junior Weyrleader. The Weyrbrat was more than happy at the possibility to get another firelizard, and was more than a little curious as to what would result and if he did get a firelizard what colour and how would they get along with his Blue and M’rat’s own firelizards.

Z'ant was there with Lyraleth in tow, the green much larger than she had been nearly a turn ago, but still just as attached to her rider as she had been. His fair swirled around him, chattering and eagerly pushing him towards the hatching, which he'd only stumbled across by pure luck... And flit insistence.

"I'm just saying that I don't need any more and we should give someone else a shot..." He was mildly arguing, petting Sweetheart, whom was wrapped tightly around his neck.

[/color=#5a6c0b]It won't do any harm to look,[/color] Lyraleth pointed out, shoving him forward with her snout. Just to watch. I want to see. Of course she did. she seemed to think that he was somehow more worthy of flits than anyone else, but the green thought highly of him as he did of her.

"Fine, fine. Let's watch, then."

--

V'ax nearly smacked the flit that popped up in front of him out of surprise. He caught himself, though, Charm jumped up to chatter with the green and V'ax went as he was summoned, eager to be part of another flit hatching, even if he didn't wind up with any. They were always fun to watch and the tiny firelizards were endlessly cute. He could, if nothing else, always appreciate watching their gangly bodies, still wet with egg goo, flop about as they got situated.

--

Uonai grabbed her twin and drug her to the bowl. "Come ON! There's FIRELIZARDS!" She practically danced with excitement, hopping over to the gathering crowd and bobbing politely to Os'nin. Clutching her sister's arm, she shook her with an excited squeal. "Do you think we'll get one? I hope I do! they're so cute!" Giving Unai a quick hug, she released her, aware of the girl's growing annoyance, which was probably a good portion of the reason she kept it up.

@Jenn

--

X'vir hadn't planned on showing up for a flit hatching. He'd just happened to be there, which wasn't all that unusual. He seemed to have odd luck with such things. His fair of blacks swirled around him before htey all somehow managed to settle on the massive brownrider, hunkering down to watch the eggs themselves, humming and swaying slightly.

X'vir gave a stiff nod to Os'nin, saying nothing as he loomed over the hatching, arms folded over his chest and draped with flits. He gave a soft sigh. "Suppose I'll wind up with another black." A small smirk twitched his lips, hinting at the fact that he could make a joke, if that was what that was. It was hard to tell if you weren't close to the man. Which was difficult to do in and of itself.

Swathed in humming blacks, he struck an intimidating figure, as if his dark expression and height didn't do that on it's own. Nevermind his near constant protective presence around the Weyrleader. How didn't X'vir have more friends? He was clearly a bundle of happiness and pleasantries.

Nari had been attending to her pink Eni when she heard a racket down below. Oh oh, I hear them, firelizards are hatching! Nari, we have to go, we can make new friends, it'll just be the best, come on come on, let's go! I am so excited. The pink said, grabbing Nari's shirt and tugging her towards the end of the bowl where the eggs were just starting to hatch. The two, Suede and Tanner at her shoulder were humming and swaying back and forth.

I get it, Eni, but I really don't think we need any more firelizards. She glanced at the two who were humming. It was the disappointed look and feeling she got that made her hold up her hands. Alright, I guess we can go, there's no guarantee of anything anyways.

Oh, don't worry about that Nari mine, we'll get another for sure, I just know it!
The pink squeaked happily at her as they made their way towards the group.

-----------

Tilihala had been sitting down to eat when the green busted back in to squawk and yell at them. "Oh, whatever could you want?" And so she followed the little green right out. She was left standing there and staring, blinking as she heard the soft humming. "Oh, a hatching of flitts! I can't wait to see what little ones hatch!" She was so excited as she made her way through to the area where the basket was set down, a few eggs rocking and one already cracked. "How lovely." She crooned softly. She was entirely unaware of her surroundings, of anything but the tiny little flitts that were hatching, which meant she didn't feel the fear or need to back away from any boys or men in her presence. She just smiled happily and waited for the little wonders to come into the world.

------------

Scoria had been resting when she was rudely awakened by a green that screamed at her until she got up. She glared at the little thing and even tried to swat at her. "Shut your mouth, it's too early." she grumbled. But the green was insistent and screamed the whole time that Scoria got dressed. She was a Wher candidate, what was she supposed to do with being woken up at this horrid hour? She glared again and once she was dressed in her finery the Green grabbed and tugged at her. "Don't muss my dress, you brat." She told the green, who squawked in protest. Once the green got her moving in the right direction it was gone again. "Oh, what is this nonsense?" And then she heard it, and saw, the crowd buzzing with excitement, the basket of eggs, and the humming of the firelizards.

Well, maybe she couldn't blame the little green TOO much for waking her up. She didn't have one of these little monsters, and they could be useful in getting into tight spots. Maybe she'd give it a go. Though she'd have some words with that green if she saw it again.

"Arrrgh," she mumbled when Uonai grabbed her arm and tugged her without remorse towards the bowl. That new junior weyrleader had a bunch of firelizard eggs he was apparently giving away and her twin had decided they both needed one. Unai could argue with that but she knew it would just give her a headache to do so. She followed her happy and excited sister towards the man with the eggs.

"I'm sure there will be just enough," she assured her sister as she patted her arm, "At the very least you will!" She was annoyed with her sister, but not at her sister. It was an odd conundrum of emotions that confused even Unai. She wanted her sister to be happy and get her little firelizard, something Unai knew Uonai had wanted for ages, but that didn't mean Unai had to be dragged along. She also had no doubt that Uonai was extra enthusiastic on purpose. She knew her twin had issues with those who were overly happy and excitable. It would be just like Uonai to rub it in Unai's face.

"I'll just stand back and watch ok?" she offered not at all excited by the prospect of having a firelizard. Not that she disliked them, she just already had so much to do that adding a firelizard to the mix might not be for the best.

Czervon wasn't terribly impressed about the new expedition. Sure, people needed to explore, and sure, things needed to be discovered, but after becoming ill with the Sleeping Sickness most recently, he had opted not to attend the excursions for this one. No, Dalibor's cold was cold enough for him, thanks kindly, though he hadn't stopped Der if his weyrmate had wanted to go. Cyprus was perched on his shoulder, Higeron, Jiggins and Tizur all located somewhere across his body. The first two were on his opposite shoulder, and the third was in his vest pocket.

His Treetail was curious, large eyes peering at the world around him as the long-tailed male flickered it to and fro, long ears twitching as Czervon offered him up a piece of fruit. He took it in his two forward paws, before settling in to eat; the Fishercrafting Bluehandler strolled into the Dining Hall curiously, before the Green had appeared showing him pictures of the basket of eggs. Czervon followed the corridor towards the Bowl, though he sat back some to avoid accruing any new pets. So he hoped, at least. He was much more interested in watching.

Slate had already been in the Dining Hall when the Green had appeared, and the new Candidate had no clue what was going on - or who the Green belonged to. Thus, curiosity killed the proverbial feline, and soon he found himself following the Bluehandler out to where there were already some people gathered. Thinking, he ran back into the kitchens, and pulled four buckets of scraps to bring out with him to the group who were gathering there.

He didn't say anything, just dropped them across the congregation so that everyone was within reach of one if they wanted to be. Taking up residence some small distance from the last one he dropped, he watched with curiosity as he settled into a cross-legged sit on the dry grass.

He just hoped they wouldn't get too cold. It was a bit nippy out, even this time of day. Winter was winter, no matter where you lived.

Sutty had been on his way to the Dining Hall for some klah when someone else had come skirting past him; Ssk was close on his heels, Nenet and Neith were perched on his left shoulder. The more irritable of his two tiny Greens grumped and grumbled, but Nenet nudged her sister to try and hush her as Sutekh's curiosity was piqued, too, and he made his way stiffly outside with his cane to take up a place around the gathered crowd of would be new-flit-owners.

The humming of the firelizards suddenly went silent. A crack ripped through one egg, and the shell practically exploded outwards, spewing out a rather beautiful blue flitt. He was a bit scrawny himself, though he was mostly well proportioned. Why, why was he the first one hatched? He peeked around, and was quick to dart behind the rest of the eggs, peeking out, just as another egg broke open, spewing out a rather lengthy black. The black glared at the blue. How dare he? And look at him cower before him! He was quick to rake his claws down the face of the blue, leaving a cross shaped mark that leaked ichor. The blue hissed and hid once more, behind some of the bigger eggs.

The black was satisfied, huffing at the little blue that was near purple. Along the black's chest was a darker tone of a deep red, though his hide was quite dark. He flicked his wings, throwing the goo from the eggs off and looked around a moment. He then stepped forwards, where there was nothing and tumbled end over end. He shook himself off, looking rather confused as to what had tripped him so. How rude! He turned then, looking at the crowd before him. Oh, look, they were here to admire him. Except her, that one in the back, she didn't even seem to care about him. He puffed up his chest. No one was going to ignore him. He shook his wings off once more and was off, angrily sqwaking at her in protest, as if to say. Notice me! He landed on Unai's shoulder, digging his claws into her and hissed. She would notice him, he was going to make sure of that! His eyes whirled then with the rainbows of impression.

Black Impressed to Unai @Jenn

Spoiler (Show/Hide)

Inspiration: Orochi Of Okami
Quote: "O, he who seeks power... He who has broken my bonds... Speak the words, "I wish darkness unto the world." Utter that prayer unto me, and unleash my power!"
Color #131226
Description:
Long and lengthy, everything on this little flitt is that way, from his neck to his legs and even his tail. He has squared spikes near the top of his head, intermingling with his headknobs. He is in the more blue gray spectrum of black with a dark red belly and under tail. His wings are also lengthy, just as the rest of him is.
Personality:
This little black has quite the ego. He thinks very highly of himself and while he isn’t the most intelligent thing out there, he is very quick to anger and has quite the attitude. All it takes is a word from his bonded and he’s off to cause mischief! He has no limitations and will frequently get himself into situations that Unai has to get him out of. Usually because he went and picked a fight with… Well, anything, really.


The blue was grateful to be rid of his very angry brother and he hurt. He seemed to pout and wiped at his face with his little hands, he wasn't coming out right now, nu uh, not ever.

Another egg began to rock, it was a big one for sure, and while it seemed to take it's time, the cracks formed and out he tumbled. He was, well massive in all the sense, a Brown of many shades. The brown wasn't just large, but he was a chubby one too. He gave a long gaze out towards the crowd. He didn't seem to make much in the way of words, but he searched, and found them in the crowd. If it wasn't for his big wings he'd probably not even be able to take right off. But he flew over and settled on a Slate's chest. He stared at him for a long while before he uttered a single chirp of noise, as if saying that he was his. And impression was made.

Brown, Impressed to Slate @RhiaBlack

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
Inspiration: Jamba of Okami
Quote: “Hey, scruffy! D'you even know who this is? This is the mighty leader of the Sparrow Clan. That's right, the Great Jamba!”
Color #9f6041
Description:
Big and massive, chubby doesn’t cover it. He’s a large and round thing. The coloring on his wings look much like feathers, and he seems to have a sort of beak and mustache of darker brown on his face. He also has what mimics an eye patch over his right eye.
Personality:
This chunky brown won’t often speak up. Rarely will he make an actual sound, but when he does have something important he needs his person to know, he’ll make sure he’s listened to. He’s calm and level-headed and will sit back and observe the situation before taking action. He takes even the small things to heart and for all his calm collection he will be deeply hurt by any insult or slight that comes his way.



It didn't take long for other eggs to begin their cracking, but the next out was one that was, well she was a beautiful and unusual thing. A sort of mask adorned her face, but the most unusual thing was the fact that she was one of the more rare tans. She seemed to grin and swish her tail back and forth and back and forth. And she spoke, oh boy was she a vocal little thing. She even chittered at the little blue that hid behind the other eggs. Nothing. Well, maybe she could trick him. But then her attention was drawn elsewhere. She heard them, a loud and raucous group of flitts. Oh look, she could go and be the best of them! Besides, she could trick them all into loving her! Oh how grand it would be, she was the best and most clever of them after all! And so she flew straight for A'dran, making quite the entrance, showing off her beautiful hide, and just how she was the best of all the flitts he could ever have before landing on his head and talking up a storm to him, squeaks and chitters and all the noises to confirm that she should get the most food. She would be the best here, and get all of the things she wanted. She was so clever!

Tan, Impressed to A'dran @Catsitta

Spoiler (Show/Hide)

Inspiration: Ninetails of Okami
Quote: "You did not have to come all this way for me to kill you. I would have found you and done so just the same."
Color #e5e3ae
Description:
A mask, that is the first thing you notice on this flitt, that she seems to be wearing some sort of mask. It is of lighter color, with a streak down the center of her face. Swirls of ‘smoke’ like eyebrows, and small diamonds under the eyes. Aside from the mask she seems to have a texture to her in the way her pattern plays.Square back spikes make her rather beautiful looking. An orange swirl on each side and she is complete. Her wings aren’t the largest, but she is very capable of flight.
Personality:
This flit thinks she is very clever. Very clever indeed! While she couldn’t be described as selfish, she is crafty and won’t hesitate to do things that are self-serving, especially if the results get her more attention and praise. She’s very talkative, usually affecting a mocking tone, however, when told no or in a situation she doesn’t approve of. She’s highly opinionated and prone to mockery when she doesn’t get her way.

She watched rather dispassionately as the firelizards started to hatch. Blue, brown and tan. Then an awful black. He actually wasn't all that awful and Unai could appreciate his color from here. She could like him from a distance and she did. Until he decided to come straight at her. "Ack!" she hollered as the black dug his talons into her shoulder. She had the sudden sense that he was not at all impressed with her views of the hatching. "Not me fool," she hissed though she knew it was too late, "You want Uonai not me!" But he didn't. The little black knew exactly who he wanted and happy Uonai was not it.

Unai and her not so brilliant personality was what he was looking for! He hissed at her again and shifted just enough those sharp little talons dig a little farther in. "Oye! Knock that off Mister!" she hissed back at the little black. She was going to have to train him up or get a padded shoulder for those talons. He'd have to be trained anyway, he was much too fierce to be allowed to go his own way. His behavior was unacceptable right out of the shell. She shook her head and looked at Uonai.

She gave her sister a thumbs up and a reassuring smile. She hadn't meant to impress the little beast. She'd been minding her own business and now Uonai needed her own little flitter.

Faygren had been finishing up a chore when a green firelizard had approached him, making noises and tugging at his clothes in what appeared to be an urgent, if not excited, manner. "Shi-- okay okay, I'm coming! Don't make me trip over you, dammit!" He spoke, lightly shaking his foot in an almost kicking motion just to shoo the creature away from him so he could follow easier. Just what was going on?

He followed to where other people had gathered, scanning his eyes over those there to see if any of them had an idea as to if they had any idea what was going on. He recognized a few faces but made no effort to approach said familiar people, merely moving to better see the basket of eggs that were by someone, no doubt a leader of sorts. However his attention was drawn by the eggs starting to hatch.

The candidate crossed his arms loosely over his middle as he observed a blue flit hatch first only to be scratched by a black one, his chin tilting up slightly. His eyes followed the black to its chosen person before his attention went back to a brown and a tan as they went and impressed as well. Now this was interesting, he shifted his footing slightly as he kept his eyes focused on the basket with other eggs and that blue that had yet to impress.

Oh. They were loud. Weren't they?

A'dran watched the first few flits hatch with growing fascination and a grimace. He recalled how loud Quince's babies were. Wee little noise makers. There were far more of these and it was possible that this could turn into a raucous event. Grey eyes flickered as they followed the paths of impressing flits. A black threw himself at a girl. A brown chose someone else. A blue hatched...and, for Faranth's sake, was one actually...yes. Yes it was. He took a stuttering half-step back as a tan latched onto his chest, dropping Warrior in reflex. The green chirped as she took wing, trilling the momentous affair to the others. She was perhaps one of the chattiest flits he ever saw and was chittering at him, clearly determined in her quest. Who was he to deny her choice?

The brownrider blew out a breath, mumbling under his breath 'why do you keep doing this to yourself', before fishing a scrap of meat from a pocket. He carried strips of dried herdbeast for his fair (treats were important when you had food centric flits) and with practiced fingers, he broke apart properly sized pieces for the tiny hatchling to eat.

"Wordy little thing aren't cha?" A'dran said as he placated her chattering with food. He then took a moment to properly look at her. She was rather pretty. Tans were a new color, hatching for the first time in the clutch that Wonder was born in. Speaking of which... he turned and looked up at the copper. She was radiant, clearly pleased with her growing ranks. Though no doubt she'd expect a thorough pampering from him when they were back at their weyr to prove that this new addition did not detract from his adoration of her. A'dran gently pried the tan from his jacket to examine her, earning a spout of noises for his effort, "Hm. Yeah. Wordy...think that suits you just fine. Welcome to the family."

Several more eggs rocked and one burst open with a leg right through, and then the other. One had a hole chipped out while the flitt there oozed, and another just split open. From them three more flitts made their presence.

One that was nearly white in color, who looked around with inquisitive eyes, a tiny pink, as small as you could find them it seemed. She had deep pink swirls on her sides and began to move, trying to pick up the biggest egg in the clutch, flapping her wings quickly to try and move it, despite the protest of the little blue that was hiding there. She was so rude! And so he grumped and flew off to hide behind the first thing he could, which so happened to be Z'ant, he would protect him! Besides, with all those other friends, they could keep him safe, right? He curled up into the crook of his arm to try to hide.

Blue Impressed to Z'ant @Captain
user posted image

Spoiler (Show/Hide)

Inspiration: Kuni of Okamiden
Quote: "Hey! You can't just leave me behind like that!"
Color: #561bce
Description:
A blue that is nearly purple in it’s tone, this blue is rather evenly built. He seems a bit scrawny at first, but he will gather much more muscle as he grows. His color is mostly just solid. A scar lies under his left eye making a sort of cross mark. This was given by his siblings in their scuffle during the hatching.
Personality:
This blue is an observant, albeit cowardly individual. He is the last to dive into action and is much more likely to hide and hope it goes away. However, he hates being alone and will stick to his bonded like a burr. Or at least one of his fair. Despite his cowardly nature, he’s surprisingly obedient though he might hesitate if the order frightens him.


The little pale pink just stared after her blue brother and tried again to lift the huge egg to no avail.

The second flitt to hatch was a very beautiful and regal pale purple in color. He seemed to puff up and act super tough. He was about to help the little pink who seemed to be happy with it when the third pink who had hatched came over and chittered at them.

The purple who had seemed so tough and ready for adventure was not so much so when the other pink spoke to him, whatever it was, the purple didn't want anything to do with it, and so he was off in a flash, much like the blue before him. Apparently a few scared flitts were a part of this clutch. He weaved through people until he came to land on a shoulder. Maybe this one? He looked up. yeah, this one would do, this would be a good one. They hadn't seen his dash away from the others, nope, not at all. So he puffed up, to show just how tough he was. It seemed that Kiveena would have their hands full with this little male.

Quote:"One should never turn down a drink, at least not one from his wife!"
Color: #a37bc8
Description:
A rather regal and sort of pale purple, this flitt is a pretty one. He seems to be wearing a sort of necklace, and has swirls on his arms. Sort of eyebrows over his eyes gives him all sorts of expression. Tall and muscled, this purple seems to have a bit of a chubby belly, especially after eating. He isn’t the most regal of shapes, but his pretty color makes up for it.
Personality:
This purple will talk a lot of talk but doesn’t have the bite to back up his bark. He isn’t the most intelligent and while he tries, if a situation seems beyond him, he’ll find a way to get out of it or bluff his way to victory. He is loyal to his person, though, and will jump to defend them… Even if he shakes when doing so.


And that just left the two pinks sitting there, the one that was pale as could be and so tiny, and one that was a dusty rose sort of color. She seemed to want to go on an adventure, while the little pink one was too preocupied with trying to lift that large egg. The large egg that burst open, throwing her back. She glared at it, and picked up the largest egg shard she could. She was victory. Now she had to show this off to someone, and quick, because the massive Iron that came out was huge indeed, and covered in spikes and rather angry looking.

Her victory made, she headed towards the crowd. She looked around a bit, carrying her massive egg shard with her. Finally she landed on someone that had been watching the eggs closely. She stared at them and their crossed arms before making a little squeak at them, hey, they needed to pay attention to her. Faygren, this one was theirs now.

Quote: “I'm at your service. Make good use of this sword, as it was designed to conquer evil.”
Color: #fee7f9
Description:
The palest of pinks, and tiny and stout is how this little flitt was made to be. She is just made of cute.Tail tipped in dark like ink, and a pink swirl on her rump and sides, as well as a pink marking on her forehead and under cheeks just adds to her cuteness. Even her headknobs are short and stout like the rest of her. You could just squeeze the cuteness out of her.
Personality:
This flit comes with an usual habit. Despite her tiny size, she seems to be preoccupied with things bigger than her. This ranges from ladles to dragon straps, she’s going to try to take them back to her hidey holes or just try to cart them around. She’ll pout if you take them away, but her interest is usually rapidly replaced by something else. Hopefully you can find a ‘favorite’ item for her to drag around. She’s a sweet, caring thing. Though, she usually expresses this by trying to bring her bonded ‘gifts’ of whatever her newest acquisition is.



The Iron was happy to be alone, save for the pink, who had taken off and was looking about for some adventures, and by that she meant to pester people and dance between them all. Just then, two other eggs rocked, producing two more Irons. They weren't nearly as large as the other, and certainly were not nearly as fierce looking, but the pair looked almost as if they could be twins, save for the different colors, they were almost like mirrors of each other in a way. Now, three irons sat, the mirrored two staying away from the much larger and vicious looking one, staying on their side of the bowl, a The pair chittered back and forth while as if discussing something. The third shook off his egg go, his goal had been to hatch, and he had done so brilliantly. Now it was uncertain, so he would wait, because he didn't see his one quite yet.

Kiveena was glad that she had got there when she did seeing as firelizards started hatching with a handsome (if scrawny) Blue being the first followed by a Black with a reddish underbelly. The Blue didn’t look to be the one in the center of attention, nor did his younger brother seemed keen on him seeing as the Black scratched the Blue fairly deeply something that Tigah and Higat wouldn’t dare think of doing even when they argued. The Black didn’t like not being the center of attention it looked like, even digging his claws into the person he Impressed just because she didn’t look as interested as the others.

The first subs Hatched up pretty quickly, one a Brown and the other being a Tan that hatched and Impressed without any fuss though the Brown decided to land at a rather odd place to land on his. Kiveena didn’t think that the Pink would be able to get very far with the largest egg in the clutch and didn’t with a pale Purple flitt coming over before something could really happen for good or ill. The Purple soon turned his attention to the crowd and landed on Kiveena herself and Impressing her in short order.

“Hmmm…… Why not Oterdan?” asked Kiveena though she was hardly expecting a no from the Purple and didn’t get one.

The two Irons that were mirrors stared at each and nodded to one another. They were gone, quick as a flash and they both popped out of between right in front of people, hoping to get a rise out of them. They chittered happily as if laughing, then went between again, this time they ended up in front of two different people. The more brown toned of the Irons ended up screeching loudly as he popped from between and right in front of Slate, hoping to throw him off and possibly scare him. Did he do it? Was this one scared? His eyes were dancing with rainbows.

Inspiration: Lechku of Okami
Quote: “Yes. I speak of the twin demons, Lechku and Nechku.”
Color: #998b79
Description:
Following the more brown spectrum of Iron, this flitt is lithe in some aspects, though others are a bit more rounded in shape. A more brown tone over his right eye and up on his right eyeknob make him unique. That same color follows the edge of his wing tips in un filled half circles. Swirls on his wings, and a symbol on his back. He’s a dangerous looking iron and a sight to behold.
Personality:
This flit will cause a variety of trouble, mostly by trying to play tricks or surprise anyone, usually his person. He’s fond of chilly places and is perfect for a handler-to-be, seemingly completely at home in a cave or the dark. He’s extremely loyal to his person, almost to a fault, becoming angry when anyone else attempts to prank or get the better of his. He couldn’t be described as loving, but he shows his affection in small ways, usually with a croon after attempting to frighten his person. He’s quickwitted and clever, which only serve to make him more of a handful. He can and will be helpful, though, with a bit of encouragement and training.


The other of the Irons landed in front of Nari, scaring the beejuzus out of her and and nearly knocking the poor girl on her rump. He was rewarded by the yelling of an angry bronze, the two nearly starting a fight. Nari grabbed the Iron and pulled him into her chest. "You stop your fighting, the two of you!" The Iron chittered, almost as if giggling at the bronze. "Now, you brat, you behave." She looked down then, and frowned heavily. "Oh shards, another one..." The Iron was impressed to her.

Oh Nari, how wonderful!

Nari frowned.

Inspiration: Nechku of Okami
Quote: “Yes. I speak of the twin demons, Lechku and Nechku.”
Color: #7b7b7b
Description:
On the more gray spectrum of the Iron shade, this iron is a bit lithe, though some features are more rounded in shape. Right eye and headknob are lighter in tone, A sort of symbol adorns the middle of his back. Lighter unfilled half squares run the edge of his wing tips. Swirls at the base of his wings make him a marvel to be seen.
Personality:
This iron is a quiet thing. Odd for a flit, he is fond of the cold and will frequently spread out on the cool rock. He’s quick to make decisions and sticks to them, even if his person tries to dissuade them. He’ll be challenging if they can’t get him to align with their own goals. If they do, however, they’ll not find a better helper. At least until he thinks he has a good idea of his own. If he can play a prank or startle someone else, he’s going to do it, frequently just by hiding in the shadows and popping out.


The dusty pink was flying around still, looking for some sort of adventure, before flying back to settle on the basket. She stared at the Iron there who was content to just sit and wait. The little pink went and poked at an egg, a rather small one. It began to crack and the pink watched for a while, before helping out a little. Only to have a green wing smack her in the face as it was exposed. The pink tumbled backwards, before righting herself and staring at what had to be the tiniest of greens. The little green hissed at her pink sister, ready to fight her. She practically glowed, like some gorgeous stone. Oh, but there was someone over there who drew her attention. Oh, look at all those flitts, look at all that potential! The green made a straight beeline for Z'ant and cooed happily at him. Oh she was in love right away, chittering and talking to him as if it was love at first sight.

Inspiration: Issun of Okami
Quote: "Ah, the wonders of nature! A deep valley between two lofty peaks!"
Color: #238947
Description:
This green is little, as small as a green could be. Though she is small she is a very beautiful color, so many greens that she looks to be glowing. It’s like looking upon a shining stone as just the color lays against her hide. Her headknobs bend forwards in a rather cute and endearing way. She is small but she is fast.
Personality:
This flit has things to say! And people to hit on! And observations to make aloud! She has no off and will alternate between flirting and trying to fight anything that catches her eye. Insult her or her’s and you’ll have a tiny ball of rage nipping at your nose! But give her a wink and she’s putty in your hands.


The pink gave a huff, adventure still awaited, even if the green hadn't been the most keen on it with her, and so she stared at the next egg, putting her head to it as if 'listening' as the egg shook and a Cyan leg shot out.

Oh! Look! TWO! Lyraleth crooned smugly. If dragons could grin, she would be doing so. She nuzzled against Z'ant, wrapping around him to watch the newest additions to his fair. "So it would seem," Z'ant replied with a chuckle, scooping up the cowardly blue and tucking him into the crook of his arm. "There, there. You're okay. No need to worry." Sweetheart crooned and peered down at him while Bandage promptly landed on Z'ant's arm, sticking her face close to look the blue over and licking his wound.

The green made him laugh. "Oh, Faranth. I have two of you now!" he beamed at Lyraleth, whom just continued to look smug. Little green firmly involved in the family, Z'ant turned to names. His record with them was less than stellar, thus the inclusion of 'bandage' and 'love' in his ranks.

"Fearful," he informed the blue, whom was watching with with appropriate eyes. "And Quick." Because flits couldn't very well complain about their names, neither one did and Z'ant smiled happily, pleased with his newest additions, even if he hadn't exactly wanted them.

Thus was life.

Lyraleth wrapped around him, watching the other eggs, probably trying to figure out how to lure more of them towards her rider.

The candidate watched quietly as a few more eggs hatched, revealing two pinks and a purple. His eyes had briefly followed the blue as it darted away, soon enough impressing on someone else in the small crowd. Four impressed thus far, and still a few more to go. His eyes returned to the other firelizards and observed how the little pale pink tried to lift one of the bigger eggs, the purple seeming about to help before the other pink, a dusty rose sort of color, approached and chittered at them.

Alas that was pretty much the last of what he saw of the purple as it took off. Well, now there were two left. He remained where he was as he kept watching, a brow lifting a little as the larger egg that the little pink had been trying to lift burst open, thus revealing an iron. He released a small, soft breath as he watched the scene as the little pink quickly snatched the largest egg shard and took off with it, no doubt as a prize.

However, when that specific pink landed on him and gave a little squeak, Faygren blinked once in brief surprise before he carefully uncrossed his arms. A female and she was definitely requesting his attention. He managed a small smile and moved his hands to adjust where she was, setting her on his shoulder and using his finger to gently pet her. "Well, isn't this an honor to have your attention, little one. You've certainly gotten yourself a little memento, don't you?" He mused to her, scanning his eyes over her.

A name, that was something this little pale pink needed. Another squeak came from his pink as she shifted herself on his shoulder to be more comfortable, that egg shard still in her grasp as she perched atop his shoulder. Faygren glanced away momentarily towards the other people and their new flitts, quietly observing them from where he stood. Though his eyes moved back over to the little pink and he lifted a hand to gently rub a finger beneath her chin. "I have a feeling you're not going to let that piece of eggshell go any time soon," he mused with a small smile. "Hm, let's see...how about we call you... Victory."

Of course there’d be a flitter hatching now, when she was on the other side of the Weyr doing chore stuff. Typical. But it was a simple thing to fix in Lerian’s opinion. Put the tasks she had to the side, out of the way of adults, run (or more like fast walk to avoid gaining attention to herself) to where the eggs were, and see if any wanted her. Then when it was over, return to her boring chores, with no supervisor (supposedly) the wiser.

Pleased with this plan, the 11 turn-old girl put it into motion, and quickly moved to where the eggs were. She melted into the crowd, oozing around everyone without them noticing her presence (or so she thought), until she found her way to the front of the pack. She wasn't a Candidate anymore, and wouldn't be until the start of the next season; what did it matter to anyone if she gained yet more critters meanwhile? (She knew the answer; she just wasn't going to admit it to anyone, because BLEAH on being booted out of Candidacy over stoooooopid age reasons.)

Tarzlo was a bit shyer about approaching such a large group of people. A relatively quiet boy by nature, he didn't always want to be around other people unless there was something interesting going on. And from the looks of things, there was something interesting going on. A look at Bonzo, his Bronze flitter, confirmed it; there were flitter eggs hatching now.

So the boy, just 9 turns old, moved through the crowd till he got to the front to see the eggs better, and to see the babies hatch out. Bonzo held on to his back, almost like a set of proper wings for his boy. He was still so large compared to him that he couldn't yet just ride on his shoulders like other flitters could theirs. Of course, it was only in recent turns that the Bronze could even hitch a ride on his boy, given that he first found His before the child was even walking himself.

But that was okay; the flitter was more than happy to make sure no-one attacked Tarzlo while under his protection. He looked over his boy's shoulder like a second head, watching the surrounding people with suspicion and making sure they knew not to get too close, lest they get a nip to back off.

((both children are open for tags.))

The cyan leg that had been dangling out of the egg was followed by another, and then a whip of a tail that was rather quite massive set the rest of the egg opened with crack. She emerged, a tail rather massive in size, looking more like a sort of dolphin or fish fin than that of a firelizard and pretty cyans on her body. She looked as if she should have been born of the ocean, not something that would fly through the air. She looked around for a while, back and forth between the crowd, before settling down on in the basket. She'd observe for just a bit longer, maybe take a nap.

The dusty pink that had been flitting about through the entire group finally stopped. Oh look, there were other pinks! She bet they could get her to go on adventures! She fluttered about a bit longer before she screeched at her clutch mate, one of the trickster Irons who was being held tight, before landing on the young pink dragonet who was settled next to her bonded. Yes. she was sure these would be great companions to go on adventures with


"Oh, not another one."
Nari cried with a sigh. Pinks seemed to adore her, and she didn't know what to do with them.

Inspiration: Ume from Okami
Quote: "'Jin' stands for 'justice'.
To show compassion to both the living and the dead...
To care enough to give one's own life in service..."
Color: #e29197
Description:
A more dusty rose of a pink color, this little pink is a well balanced looking creature. Her body shape reflects more that of the runners, small legs and large chest and neck. Lighter pink on the insides of her wings, and markings following similar to that of a canine give her a cute look. On her sides are markings in the same lighter pink that resemble flowers, one large in the center and one on either side of that.
Personality:
Hope you’re ready to have your hands full! This pink has things to do. And those things are usually adventures! Adventures into trouble. Which is more often than not getting into someone else’s weyr or instigating an (accidental) fight with another flit. She doesn’t try to cause trouble, it just seems to follow her. Usually because she’s so caught up in exploring or ‘helping’ to pay much attention to what’s going on around her.


The massive Iron who had been sitting in the basket stared forwards, and his eyes flashed irritation that the cyan was sitting in his basket. He shoved her right out of his way, tromping all over her as he wanted the best vantage point. He shoved the cyan till she rolled backwards, end over end, and was off.

The little cyan was rather upset and chittered loudly at the Iron who was just so rude! All she wanted to do was relax a bit, maybe nap, and he had ruined it!

The Iron raked claws or his massive spikes across anyone in his path and in the way of his goal, shoving his way through people until he came to stare at one particular boy. This one. He gave the bronze on the child's back a look before shoving him out of his way to make room. He clamped onto the boy's back and hissed at the bronze. It seemed that Tarzlo was going to have some rough going with this one.

Inspiration: Blight of Okami
Quote: “Goldnail, the mighty sword, cries out for your blood! Come! Step forward so that I, the indomitable Blight, may cut you down!”
Color: #799481
Description:
On the more green end of the spectrum of Irons, this one is massive. He’s on the large end of the scale. The first thing you notice on him are the massive spikes along his back, like knives sticking out of him, it’s amazing what wild genes will do to a flitt. His body seems to be covered in some sort of metal armored plating, making him look rather dangerous and deadly. Wings and tail are also massive, making him a big boy.
Personality:
This burly boy will do as he pleases! Most of the time, anyway. He has purpose and goals and will do anything he can to obtain his goals, including destroy anything in his way. He’s focused to a fault. It will take a lot of effort and control for his bonded to reign him in. He is, however, extremely protective of his person, even if his protection is oftentimes misplaced. That curtain touched his person! It must be punished!



The little cyan was furious, though she was not going to let that get her down. Around her some eggs began to crack and rock even more so. She turned her head to stare at them. One cracked just enough for an eye to peek out, but it seemed that one just wasn't quiet ready to hatch as it stopped just after that. The Cyan wanted to help, but was given a huff from the egg instead.

More eggs were doing their thing, colors hard to tell from the bits of eggs that were breaking away. Cyan? Blue? Green? From that distance it was hard to tell what the next one to come would be, while the one egg was content to just sit there for a while with it's little observant eye hole.

Having enough of this, and detriming, with a squawk from the green that was on the Jr,Weyrleader's shoulder to just get moving, She decided her new goal was to find her person. She looked through faces, and looking at fares. Finally she came to land on V'ax's arm. He would feed her right? She was really quite hungry, being hatched and all, and her goal for the moment was food!

Quote: "Squiddy, we have to go save him! Not all humans are selfish I guess. That little boy just taught me that. Come on, let's go! This time it's my turn to help him!"
Color: #b4f4fe
Description:
Ocean water itself is what this cyan looks much like. Her headknobs look almost like fins, while her tail is much wider than that of an average flitter. Her tail even carries mock scales upon them, making her look all the more like she should be a creature of the ocean instead. Darker arm bands and an oval on her chest that looks like some sort of breast plate complete her look. She is a pretty little thing to behold.
Personality:
This cyan knows no bounds. If she wants to do something, she’s going to do it! Almost obsessive with accomplishing whatever she (or her bonded) sets before her, she will frequently find herself in situations where she’s in over her head… But that won’t stop her! Nor will it stop her upbeat nature!
