News
Autumn, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:

Upcoming Hatchings:
Copper Laanasuth
Copper Zelsk

With two clutches hardening on the Hatching Sands the big question seemed to be: which will hatch first?

The answer came in short order with Copper Zelsk's clutch breaking shell moments before Copper Laanasuth's. With so many eggs surely the dual hatching offers hope to the numerous Candidates who fill Dalibor's ranks. Only time will show who will come away with a lifemate of their very own...

... and who will forfeit their life in hopes of Impression.

Fingers pulled at the skirt once again, the pink tinted sheer fabric was intriguing and much softer than she thought it would be. The whole dress was soft, even the upper half with all the small beads threaded on it. It had been a gift from her brother and while she’d had it for turns she’d never worn it. There was a time when she planned on wearing it and inviting him to dinner for his nameday but he’d been too busy, they had to reschedule and she forgot to wear it when they finally got together for dinner on a different evening. ‘There’d be another time to wear it’, she could almost hear herself thinking those words in the past… but there hadn’t been time. They had run out of time last winter.

Two seasons had passed and while the pain in her heart had lessened it would always remain, of that she had no doubt. So now in order to honor her brother she was finally wearing the dress even though it didn’t quite match the mask she had picked out to wear to the Masque feasts.

Oh, ahm, it is green, green is such a pretty color. Pink is ahm a prettier color, don’t you think? You look so so pretty! Ahm...Lyraleth! She is green! She is sooooo pretty too, but not as pretty as myLin! Oh oh oh do you think Lyraleth will be there, and friendZ’ant? We can all get our faces painted! Did you hear that? There is face painting and we can all go! Ohhh it will be so fun! And there will be boooooys there myLin! So many of them! One might kiss you! FriendZ’ant can’t kiss you because he has Lyraleth and she is still so little and he caaaaaan’t but when she is bigger then he can! Poshyooth was absolutely thrilled that there was a feast going on. Music, food, dancing, dressing up, masks, face painting, and boys! Everything her rider could possibly want or need in order to cheer up more.

”There will be no kissing tonight or any other night. You assume he even wants to kiss me, which he doesn’t.” Nevermind that his green had already outed him as having thought a certain way about the pinkrider, she was not going to entertain the idea. If she did she might turn completely red upon seeing him - and given how their dragons seemed to intervene more often than not she doubted she’d make it through the evening without seeing him.

Do not worry my sweet song. When Lyraleth is older you and friendZ’ant can have eggs together. A pause and then, Oh there they are! No sooner had the pair landed in the weyrbowl did Posh pick their friends from the crowd headed for the dining hall. Linavi barely had time to dismount before her pink was bouncing, Lyraleth! FriendZ’ant! We ahm, are going to get our faces painted! You look niiiiiiiiiice, so cute! MyLin is cute too! Did you see? Wait ahm, and dance with her!

Hiding the visible portion of her face behind a hand she couldn’t help but turn bright red, stopping completely in the bowl rather than heading for the dining hall. That’s it, I’m going back to my weyr. I cannot be here with him if you are going to keep this up! He’s a weyrling! Completely exasperated and embarrassed she opened her eyes in time to see the green and the young man bonded to her headed their way. Shards, too late to run now.

Z'ant was pink.

Very pink. His tunic and pants were both a vibrant pink and while his boots and belt weren't, he'd adorned a pink mask, coloured similarly to Poshyooth. Lyraleth wasn't terribly fond of it, and had spent the better part of the last candlemark reminding him that green was better.

"I know, my love," he assured her with a scratch behind the knob. "But the point is to stand out. And you are too wonderfully camoflauged for that." She huffed at him, but took his compliment. "Besides, you'll stand out better if we don't match." That soothed her and she puffed up, looking far too pleased with the idea.

Face painting? Z'ant, I would like my face painted. Pink like you. Poshyooth, you should get green. Then we will match. She immediately got sidetracked as a handsome brownrider wandered by and Z'ant caught her by the neck, keeping her close to him.

"Let her know I'd be happy to dance with Linavi, my dear."
Lyraleth relayed, gracefully hopping over to circle around Linavi and rise up on her haunches to peer at the woman, studying her mask.

Okay, I appreciate your pink since Linavi is dressed like me. She shoved her head under Linavi's hand like an oversized cat. You are very pretty, Linavi. You can dance with my Z'ant. Poshyooth and I are going to get our faces painted. Not that she'd leave Z'ant's side. That wouldn't happen until they were graduated and the pair, clearly, didn't seem eager to be split up for any reason.

"Shall we dance? Or do we want to watch them get painted up first?" He grinned beneath his half-mask.

Ahm, you match! Poshyooth declared, as if the two humans had lost the ability to see and needed to have it explained. Indeed the weyrling had gone for a very, very pink ensemble. If one did not count the hue of her cheeks now that she had settled and uncovered them some even she had not worn quite so much of the color. At least he was the sort who could pull it off without seeming outright foolish - though he was dangerously close. There was just something about seeing such a burly young man in so much pink; she nearly giggled but managed to stifle it in favor of a smile. With the green upon her Linavi gave gentle scritchings around her headknobs before letting her hand slowly drag down the green’s long neck, ”You are looking lovely as always Lyraleth.” If there was one thing she had learned about the green since her hatching it was that she adored compliments. At the dragon’s permission to dance with her bonded Linavi lifted her gaze from the green to the man in question.

”If we don’t dance before the night is done then Poshyooth may have a fit, so I suppose we should do that first?” The pitch of her voice made it into a question rather than an answer, as if she wasn’t entirely certain he really wanted to dance with her. As far as she was convinced - despite the dragons’ meddling - he was only being nice because of her pink and his green. Playing along with it all, or so she told herself. He was… well he was handsome and those types didn’t like girls like her. Thankfully her dragon was distracted by Lyraleth’s presence so she didn’t broadcast all of Linavi’s thoughts and feelings to the weyrbowl.

Oooooh! Green is good! I will look like you then Lyraleth! Ahm they may not be able to tell us apart then. Oh oh oh what if they want me to go back to the barracks with friendZ’ant instead of my weyr with myLin? Oh it would be so funny! Do you ahm, think they would do that? We could trick them! Of course the pink was leagues larger than the green but for the time being she was willing to overlook that fact in favor of the humorous prank she’d just thought up. Everyone loved a prankster, right?

Lyraleth crooned her pleasure at the compliment, wrapping around Z'ant. She was too big to crawl all over him as she previously had but that made her no less tactile. "I don't think you'd fit in the weyrling barracks, Posh. But you can certainly try." Because encouraging their antics was something he needed to do. Lyraleth sat stiffly at the edge of the dancefloor as Z'ant led Linavi out and grinned before they launched into the fairly simplistic dance.

"I'm awful," he confided in her with a smile. "I make up for it with charm and good looks," he winked and twirled her, carefully avoiding stepping on her feet as they moved back together. "You look beautiful," he whispered as they closed the space between them. "I'm honored to dance with you." Gently, he squeezed her hand. He was, clearly, overjoyed to be where he was. As if the bounce in his step and the permanently pink tinge to his cheeks were any indication.

We would still like to have our faces painted, Lyraleth reminded them after the song had ended and a new one begun. Z'ant smiled over to the green and nodded, escorting Linavi off the dance floor and back to their waiting dragons. Lyraleth was on her feet and trotting towards the weyrbrats eagerly, not waiting for anyone else.

"Are you going to get your face painted?" Z'ant asked, glancing towards Linavi. "I don't think anyone else will have time, it will take them all to cover Poshyooth in green!"

Cheeks suddenly matched the color of her dragon’s hide beneath her partial mask as he led her to the dance floor. One of her hands was settled in his while the other rested against his shoulder, just like she saw everyone else doing. It was not a complicated dance by any means but the twirl he spun her into caused the feelings of vtols to flutter about in her stomach. As they drew close once more he whispered a compliment to which she vehemently shook her head. ”It’s just the dress and mask.” Of course she looked nice with half her face covered up and her hair styled. The dress was a flattering cut, even for her figure, and pretty even when it did nothing but drape from the hanger. Beautiful though? No, she wasn’t beautiful. Not when she compared herself to the numerous women around them. ”Th-thank you though. You look very nice.”

Far more than very nice, but she wasn’t going to say that. She couldn’t bring herself to say that when there were others about who might hear her. It was bad enough that Poshyooth took up vocalizing her thoughts and feelings regularly, but if she were to be heard voicing them herself it would be even more embarrassing. Besides, he was a weyrling and she had to mind herself - not that she thought it would really matter much to him if she were honest about the little crush she had on him. He’d probably think her silly.

The song was over sooner than she would have liked but she did not protest as he led her from the dance square to where their dragons awaited. ”She’s not getting painted completely green, no matter what she may think.” Linavi rolled her eyes as a smile brightened the portions of her face that were visible. ”What about you? Planning on getting your face painted?” Then a thought struck her but before she could get it out herself her dragon was on top of it. Ahm Linavi should paint friendZ’ant’s face and friendZ’ant can paint Lin’s face! She sounded so proud, as if she had come up with the idea all on her own and her rider was content to let her have this one. She was used to it, after all.
