Absences / Moving House!
« on: April 16, 2018, 03:38:35 AM »
So, I have just been told that I will/should be getting the keys to my new house on Monday (23/04) this means my availability has basically gone down to low-nil and depending on that happening, I will be losing the net shortly afterward as I need to get it connected again and that usually takes up to four/five weeks depending. That will be fun.

I am very excited! Although my net presence will understandably be diminished until everything settles down again and things are connected. I will do my best to keep you up to date etc. However, with only limited mobile connectivity, my options will be very limited. So, after this weekend I will be taking on no new threads.

About Velatha
She is the youngest child and also the only daughter in the family. As such it has always been used as the excuse for why she needs to be protected and/or watched over so much. The family has very strong opinions about riders and that has resulted in their attempts to make sure that their daughter remains apart from them.

Obviously, this didn't work. She has had numerous arguments and out-and-out fights on this score but Velatha has determined that B'nyn makes her happy and that moving into his weyr.

Out of Character
There are more details on her application, Velatha if you would like to go and check that out. Although I will be happy to negotiate some details in terms of their crafts and wives as well as any children they might have had etc.

As this is a wanted ad; please make them adoptable. Other than that anything goes, I've included some images for inspiration and little details to help with ideas but I am open to talking out anything. Basically, I would love to have the dynamic of the family/Velatha and of course, B'nyn, especially now that she has moved into his weyr.

@SanctifiedSavage

Tircin and Ysmersa
1. End of day, work talk thread ->  Ysmersa admitting she doesn't want to be a Fisher
2. Chatting about extended family
3. The mess with the rider/holder business
4. Talking about the new flits
5. Thread with him struggling to understand/support  Ysmersa in her new ambition
-- just a few thoughts, let me know what you want to go with

S'bok & Halirina
1. Chatting about long-term plans
2. Admitting he did a good job (for some reason, mebbe?)
3. Trying to have a meal/be social with each other
-- again just some thoughts

Also I would love to get Yolata and Ellariel up and running if you're interested? I know Ellariel isn't really the sort to be exactly outgoing but I think it would be good for her to have some time with her extended family, even if it isn't likely to end up being sunshine and cuddles. As for Yolata it is just a general shout-out for any threads you might have in mind or just want to try out possibly. Anyone let me know!

« on: April 26, 2017, 10:20:21 AM »
Aryth's Flight
02.06.2590 // 6 pm

Aryth rises for her Flight, in the late afternoon which as much as Arlais knew was happening still has her a little huffy about the whole thing. As with any other, Aryth bloods her kill and then calls out her challenge to the available males in her wing. She is a force catch to any of the Jungle Wing interested in taking the chance, while Aryth prefers bronze or brown and will in fact generally ignore the other colours as being unworthy.

Who knows if one might prove themselves truly capable? The younger and newly graduated pairs are unlikely to know that Aryth has her preferences. Basically everyone is welcome to join in, even those outside her wing if you want to join in.

Use the following to indicate your preference! :heart: Feel free to PM me, ping me on discord if you have questions or want clarification on anything!

Rider & Dragon: Their names
Mature Postings: Fade to Black/Play it out.
Aftermath: Vasalyth will be alone in her weyr, and as it’s late, she’ll want night-time company. I can do immediately after the Flight or the morning after when they head down to breakfast together.

Biography

First Name:
Ellariel
Nicknames:
N/A
Date of Birth:
04.08.2575 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Hold
Weyrmate or Spouse:
Nealros


Your Reflection...

Appearance:
Ellariel has never managed to stand out; even as a child she was more of a small wisp of her girl almost a half-forgotten member of the family among far more vibrant and usually loud siblings that she grew up with. There is a paleness to her appearance, almost making her look weak or fragile it was certainly suggested on a few occasions that Ellariel looked more sickly then sweet.

In order to off-set her failings in a physical sense Ellariel learned how to dress to promote what she had and improve it with careful touches here and there. As she got older Ellariel would learn to pad out in certain areas as she remained universally lean and largely flat-chested. She is also rather narrow waisted, which has caused painful problems in having her children but it has at least now provided Ellariel with the chest she had always been looking to possess.

Along with those changes are also stretch marks over her stomach and breasts as well as a slight sag from being pregnant so close together but it more of a little paunch than anything too gross and Ellariel has the skills to hide it from the casual observer - at least when she is fully dressed.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe:
We cannot hide behind high walls, our hearts trembling. For that is not life. We must accept the needs and the duties of each day, and face them one at a time
She experienced the death of his mother, and the loss of cousins and even a friend or two but Ellariel was able to cope with these deaths with more calm than many others. She believes that ultimately the lost remain in her heart and while she is able to remember them, they are not truly dead. In order to properly accept abandoning her home Ellariel has told herself many things, one of which that she had no choice in the matter. Something that has been true in so many aspects of her life. Ellariel wants to concentrate on making a place here, for her and most especially for her family.

Response to dragon color mutations:
The purpose of debates is to explore issues, not end them
Ellariel is shocked that these dragons have appeared, not outraged but they seem to be direct representation of all the changes that had been happening and she is not sure how comfortable she can be as a result even if she was more certain about it all. Publicly she has the same opinions about dragon-riders as her husband and given his own thoughts on the matter Ellariel has chosen to remain steadfastly neutral or at least say nothing about her thinking.


Who are you...


Likes:
-- BEING A MOTHER ; ever since her first daughter was born Ellariel has been proud to be able to call herself a mother. She is both protective and caring towards the children, hoping more than anything to be able to provide them with a suitable role model they can live up to as they get older.
-- NEALROS BEING BUSY ; anything at all that distracts him from finding fault or a mistake with her or their children or their home. None of which makes her all that relaxed or stress free and can result in Ellariel being far more snappy in her manner as a result.
-- MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY ; she prefers to avoid confrontation and arguments. Basically anything at all that will make someone upset. In fact, Ellariel will do whatever she can to make someone happy, making a meal they love or fixing a special item - this applies most obviously to both her husband and often her extended family as well.

Dislikes:
-- HER EXTENDED FAMILY ; aside from making her well and truly nervous Ellariel is also not comfortable with their lifestyle and the affect it has had upon her husband. More than anything else she wants to break free from this world and all of the damage it can have upon a person.
-- GAMBLING ; it seems to almost be the source of a lot of her problems. Well, a lot of the reasons why Ellariel is not as happy with Nealros as she would be otherwise. He loves the thrill of it all and it is one of the things that brings him back over and over. She'd prefer it to be over and done with really.
-- WHER FIGHTS ; Ellariel doesn't like to see how the animals are hurt, the training and especially the fights most of all. She'd happily never see another wher again, not because she hates the animals but because without them Nealros wouldn't have another wher to abuse with his training.

Strengths:

* ASTUTE : she is a woman who has often been in the shadows, quiet and unobtrusive overall. It has developed her ability to become more observant of what is around her both in terms of people as well as the small details about them and their character.

* PATIENT : Ellariel learned it was far better to plan a waiting game than attempt aggression. After all, she isn't the one that anyone is going to ever imagine as being dangerous or someone they should respect. Instead she is a quiet, still voice that provides good advice and cool logic.

* WELL-MANNERED : originally raised to be well-bred and polite, that is exactly what she is. Ellariel is above all else exactly what she is supposed to be. Namely an educated (to a degree) woman who can handle the role of wife and mother as well as the social aspects of that position as well. She knows how to plan events, and organise a household.

* FAMILY-ORIENTED : for her this is the cornerstone of her whole world. Ellariel is a woman for whom family always comes first. She is generous with her time and attention and the loving way she is with her children shows how much she wants to be a good mother.

* FOCUSED : while it is possible to assume Ellariel is more flighty in her character than a woman who is capable of handling the proper sort of concentration required to complete a task - the opposite is the case. She knows how to get the work done and done well. The last thing she wants to do is make a mistake and end up being punished as a result.

Weaknesses:

* LOW SELF-ESTEEM : as much as she is a wonderful woman and could indeed by a confident one that doesn't prevent her from having internal monologues which indicate how fully she doubts in herself as being capable or able-bodied. Ellariel will always end up questioning everything she says, or does.

* TENDENCY TO LIE : while not strictly necessary Ellariel is someone for the whom the truth is very much lacking. She'll lie not because she has to or it's necessary or even appropriate but because she is used to lying - especially to cover up a new bruise or else provide a means of remaining in denial about the cruelty if her husband and his family.

* PRONE TO DEPRESSION : due to the lack of esteem that she has Ellariel often has bouts of depression, this has happened both times after the birth of her each of her children. Although it has mercifully been short lived. The main result had been a reduced appetite as well as a tendency to want to spend time in bed - not that she does.

* POOR SELF IMAGE : she'll never see herself as lovely or even all that appealing. Instead Ellariel believes that she is merely an rather fortunate woman to have ever managed to secure a husband at all. She doesn't like the way she looks and will spend hours to make sure that everything is just so.

* SELF JUDGING : all tied in with everything else, Ellariel doubts pretty much everything that she says or does, although it has now often resulted in her questioning Nealros for reassurance that she is going the right thing, the way that he wants.

Describe Yourself:

* TAKES HERSELF VERY SERIOUSLY: ----- Ellariel might have enough of a sense of humour to crack a joke when it's appropriate but she doesn't apply that to herself whatever the occasion might be; she is a serious sort of woman and as much as she will smile it is never confident.

* TENDS TO SOCIALLY ISOLATE HERSELF: ----- She is absolutely not good at making friends, and the few she does win tend to find themselves being, not ignored but otherwise not given much in the way of time and attention. Ellariel will focus much more extensively upon her family.

* SEEKS APPROVAL: ----- While this used to be from her parents, it now rests almost solely upon the shoulders of her husband. Ellariel is not quite yet constantly seeking approval but it is fairly close, fairly consistent in her need to know that it is alright and being done properly.

* EMOTIONAL: ----- Generally she is able to handle herself, at least while in public and especially in social settings. Ellariel is however not without her moments of panic and tears, not to mention fretting and even brief sparks of anger - just not very often in her case.

* RESPONSIBLE: ----- She will also do what has to be done, getting up early and making sure it is all handled and arranged exactly as it should be and most especially the way her husband wants it to be done; no matter her own personal preferences.

The Magic Touch:
Ellariel is very much a battered woman, one who has a number of psychological scars many of which appeared in her childhood and have only been encouraged and allowed to blossom even further into her adulthood. Ellariel is always going to be more fragile than most but at the same time she is also capable of a possessing a core of strength; she is still young enough to be change and grow provided she has the opportunity to do so. It has started to show itself in the subtle ways she applies her influence over her husband or tries to at least.

Children:
-- 2588, Nellarie (daughter)
-- 2589, Rovian (daughter)

 


Tell us a story...



* 2575, 0 born, she was the fourth child for her parents and marked the arrival of a second daughter into the family. Ellariel was largely an afterthought most of the time but she was noted for being very healthy as an infant.

* 2579, 4 the last of her siblings is born. In the wake of this her mother takes sick for a prolonged period of time, putting some pressure on the family to cope. Ellariel's mother never actually fully recovers from this incident and her fragility makes it a challenge for her to handle her large family as a result of which her father invites a younger sister (unmarried) to join them.

* 2580, 5 she spends more and more time learning her lessons in how to behave and less time in play. Ellariel is not always encouraged as fully as she should, as there is some lack of support due to her mother's illness and her aunt focusing more upon her elder siblings.

* 2583, 8 Ellariel is allowed to start attending some functions in a limited fashion. Mostly an effort to make sure that she fully understands her place in the world - generally to look pretty and make comments only when absolutely necessary but otherwise to be quiet.

* 2585,10 she is told that her marriage has been arranged but isn't given any kind of real details about her future spouse but instead given more instruction in how to manage a household.

* 2587, 12 this is the year she celebrates her marriage, along with the formal move to their new home. It is an unsettling period in her life, change and adjustments affecting a lot of how she acts for a long time. Especially as she has to meet and deal with her new in-laws, who actually manage to almost completely terrify her with their loud and ribald ways - it is in the wake of the move to the island that she discovers she is pregnant for the first time.

* 2588, 13 as she starts to learn more about the man she married, Ellariel gives birth to her first child and while she becomes rather depressed afterwards makes the decision to do her utmost to affect positive influences ahead of the foulness she senses from her extended family.

* 2589, 14 she has her second child, another daughter. Once more she has a bout of increased depression afterwards but this time manages to recover slightly faster.

* 2590, 15 As this new Turn begins Ellariel is keen to see more positive happenings but seems that things are not heading in that direction. At least not yet. She instead concentrates on her children as she starts to speak more candidly to her husband - when the opportunities are there.

-----

"Yes, little one. That is the way...shall we add the spice now, hmm?" her eldest daughter Nellarie babbled in reply, only one word in three even managing to make any kind of actual sense but it was coming along and that certainly counted as a sign of how much she'd changed even in these last few months. Ellariel had never imagined how much she could love another person.

It was deeper and more true than anything she had experienced in respect of anyone else, even her husband. Although Ellariel carefully kept that knowledge to herself; there was no need to share that sentiment with anyone else. Especially as it might end up only causing her pain and certainly much more likely to be a reaction which she would hardly like or welcome at all.

No, she had learned the majority of ways necessary to make sure her husband was happy. That was always important. As she continued the cooking, watching her eldest in her secure place in their home, her ear was listening for the sounds of Rovian starting to wake up from her latest nap.

K'rez he will know about it, he isn't going to be happy...at all. Like no, no, and more no. That is pretty much one giant-arsed headache and then some!

Vestanna & Arlais both women think it is yet more proof of how generally stupid the Holders are but at least there might be some possibility of them no longer being the problem of the Weyr and that could well work out as being a rather great thing in the end.

Tircin supports the overall idea but he doesn't believe it was handled right. In fact, he isn't sure if it isn't the worse thing to do in the wake of the fighting that was happening so recently but as he is more interested in the Fisher Hall and being out on the water he'll keep the majority of his opinions to himself...for now.

Carayia worries this might cause some kind of escalating response. Other than that she doens't have an opinion on the matter overall.

Sionann doesn't really care, but hoped some good will come out of it all.

"Love is not about conquest, it is about surrender"

Carayia // Weyrling // 22


About the Character:
She is a hesitant woman when it comes to her affections. Carayia has been hurt before, emotionally harmed by the actions of a man who became cruel, domineering and with the potential for violence. It shook her psyche and left her heart in a fragile state.

Carayia isn't actually weak or naive, nor is she a virgin but the idea of a casual fling has absolutely no interest for her whatsoever. At the same time she no longer has the desire to necessarily put herself out and risk being hurt again.

For the time being Carayia distracts herself and gives her all to the red dragon she impressed. He might not the colour anyone expected and at times she retains so doubts but there is no one who could ever doubt her dedication and determination when it comes to caring for and training with Vesith. She originally trained in the smithcraft; sometimes it can result in a tendency to taciturn attitude particularly in large crowds as Carayia isn't really used to that sort of thing.

Wanted ICly:
Ideally, a rider who has more experience would be perfect. However, a relationship would naturally be on hold while her dragon continues to mature. Basically this would be a slowly maturing romance, one that develops over a lot of time. There can be an instant attraction but Carayia isn't going to be the one acting on it as she has been burned before by someone she trusted.

While a rider would suit, anyone who isn't going to have a negative bias in terms of her impression of a red - they can be neutral about it, or even moderately on the negative side as long as they can be persuaded to change their minds - and are able to understand what it is like to be a rider.

Wanted OOCly:
Should you take this up, it would be great if they could be adoptable. But there is room for negotiation.

S'bok will be in the weyr with Halirina cause well it has to as Neisoth is definitely not chasing any other golds as for what he is doing...he might be able to convince Halirina with smexing...mebbe...

K'rez he'd probably not object to Denoth flying but I doubt he'd actually win (please don't let him) as K'eeda and blue are about - yes, we can totally thread that out! @SancitfiedSavage

Vestanna and Arlais will probably find bed parters, any takers? [{arlais}} might join the protest, it will depend on who is about really.

Tircin will be with his wife and that is all *coughs*

Carayia will be with Vesith and doing a lot of not thinking about it as much as possible.

Sionann takes the view of  tumble would be nice but she'll help out at the healers hall if nothing better presents itself to keep her mind off everyrhing.

OOC Hang Out / Re: [Players Revealed] Introduction to Pern
« on: January 30, 2017, 12:58:15 AM »
I believe I picked up the original one solely as a result of it being about dragons. I was around eight at the time and the first book was Dragonsong, I was fortunate enough that the library also had Dragonsinger & Dragondrums as well. I became immediately fascinated with the idea of this world and all of the associated society that came along with it.

Menolly was and remains one of my enduring favourite characters. She was far from perfect and I loved her flaws, I also developed my fondness for all things related to fire lizards. It was only after about two years that I found any of the others as I was able to secure the ordering of the books - those which had been released - I started to hunt down copies in the local charity shops as an when time allowed. I actually need to sort out getting them back up on my kindle as I no longer have the room for physical books anymore (sadface) but I will sort that out when I don't need to worry about being an adult.

Over time I hunted down the other book series; the Talent, the Tower & Hive, Crystal Singer, Freedom (Catteni), the Brain & Brawn Ship, Petaybee universe (not the children), Acrona (most of them), Ireta and Doona as well.

As an aside, the Crystal Singer and the Brain and Brawn ships are actually all set in the same universe. As well as the Ireta one (dinosaur planet)...it always made me wonder what would happen if/when the colony was rediscovered and taken back into the rest of the Federated Sentient planets...but I have to say that it is merely in my head and nothing else really.

I didn't really expect to find rp set in these worlds. The pc game amused me for a while; though I never brought it as it didn't speak to my love of the world really at all. But that is another matter, I was sad that they never made the televisions series, as I would love to see the world made real. But those are my personal bug bears. I am often surprised that none of the other worlds she made managed to become popular but I also understand it as well.

When I read Dragonsdawn I was again entranced by the world, though it was actually one of the last books I ever read. I have never read any of the Todd McCaffery ones...I also don't intend to either, given that it really doesn't make sense in a lot of the bits and pieces I've read about it doesn't inspire me at all.

That sounds good! Once the riot is sorted out, if that actually happens...the sorting I mean (giggles) but we can certainly plan for something around that working out if you'd like? I'd certainly love to see him after the riot thread while he is still very much in seethe mode.

Fort Weyr
Dragon Color:

Impression Age:

Wing Rank:
Wingrider ()

Your Reflection...

Appearance:
She has never care for nor worried about her appearance; as long as her clothes are clean and not worn then Yolata is perfectly happy with whatever she is wearing. She insists on taking care of some items all on her own - such as her leathers but Yolata relies on those more talented when it comes to anything finer and definitely less robust.

Yolata is not a delicate woman, for all that her appearance might suggest otherwise. Yolata as a deep strength to her character and even her body; though it is based on lean well-trained muscles than anything enhanced by her physical looks.

At the moment her hair is worn long but braided to avoid her having to deal with the business of its strong need to fluff up at the worst possible moments. Usually before important meetings or basically whenever it would be the very worst time for it to happen - Yolata suspects that it the universes way of making sure she doesn't get to big a head; a nice reminder that chaos is always just around the corner, when you least expect it.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe:
"No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear"
She didn't lose as much in terms of her relatives; they had always been a fecund bunch and even with all the death and horror they proved themselves reliable as survivors as well. Nonetheless Yolata was affected by it personally as she lost friends, companions during the trials. It altered forever the world that Yolata had known and nothing would ever be the same again.

Response to dragon color mutations:
"Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature"
That is how Yolata sees them. After all, the dragons had been the means of the salvation before, why wouldn't they now find some way of securing their survival now that they have to look at new avenues and paths to the future for them all. Yolata has a reasonably positive attitude to everything about them and she is the sort to watch them without judging. She will see what ends up happening.


Who are you...


Likes:
-- Singing (she has an alto)
-- Freshly baked bread
-- Exploring

Dislikes:
-- Egotistical People
-- Snap Judgements
-- Sailing

Strengths:

* DISCIPLINED : While others will spend their time focusing on the challenges of the moment and can end up getting either distracted or just disheartened over time. Yolata instead sticks it out all the way until it is finished; just the feeling of knowing that she is doing something meaningful makes her feel better overall than would otherwise be the case.

* SENSE OF HUMOR : While a joke can't solve everything it can make a bad situation a whole lot better than it would be otherwise. Yolata has a ready wit and willingness to use it as and when the opportunity arises for her to do so. She isn't going to drop a joke at the wrong time or when it's inappropriate. It is more about being there ready to laugh but not mocking the world.

* CURIOUS : From her earliest memories Yolata has always been the sort to question and challenge the world; it fascinates her in every single way imaginable and she is determined to answer all of the queries that she does have. Although her adult and logical self realises that it is probably not going to be possible to achieve no matter how hard she tries.

* ALWAYS WILLING TO LISTEN : There has never been an occasion when Yolata hasn't been interested in being around to hear what troubles there are in her friends and her families life. She is a woman who will always pay attention to what they have to say, although that doesn't mean that Yolata is a passive ear but rather that she is the sort to want to offer advice and help.

* SUPPORTIVE : It isn't just about being willing to listen, Yolata is the one who will bring baked goods to those in need of a curl up and company or even just help out in some physical way. Basically she is the friend you can rely on during a time of need.

Weaknesses:

* NEGLECTS THEIR OWN NEEDS : Due to the depth of her giving and warm nature, Yolata sometimes forgets about herself. While this creates a serious risk of her burning out, it doesn't prevent her from being any less determined to continue. Although she has learned to accept the advice of others when and if they notice her starting to display the signs that indicate it's all getting that little bit too much.

* OVERCONFIDENT : She has never been unwilling to give up or back down. Yolata believes it will get better; they will survive and if possible the new world will be even better than it was before. Yes, a small part knows that it won't be easy but she is prepared to put the work in to make it so.

* TAKES THINGS PERSONALLY : Yolata is the sort that when wounded, finds that her emotions will not be contained.  She by her very nature "wears her heart on her sleeve" and will more often exude warmth and calm support to those around who might need it. She can tend to be dramatic and moody when it is her feelings being harmed and it's not uncommon to have her shout out her vexation during those times.

* EASILY BORED  : Without some means of holding her interest and attention Yolata often finds herself seeking out some means of entertaining and providing something to do while she waits. This often leads to some wild suggestions for activities or just encouraging her friends into doing something, anything really that will take themselves out of the moment.

* FIERCELY INDEPENDENT : Yolata doesn't like or appreciate being constrained or restrained at all. She will follow the rules; she understands how important the rules can be and are in the main. That doesn't mean she wants to be stuck marching along to some kind of beat that doesn't match her own desires or long-term goals. Yolata can challenge those who don't understand this facet of her nature.

Describe Yourself:

* ENERGETIC: ----- When something manages to fully capture Yolata's imagination, she ends up dedicating all her time & all that energy to the project. While her natural hesitancy will stop her from stepping up to take the lead, it doesn't stop her from being the first to raise a hand and volunteer to be of assistance.

* FLEXIBLE: ----- She has a natural 'live and let live' attitude to most people, situations and just in general. Yolata likes to consider herself an open-minded individual no matter how difficult or complicated the situation might otherwise appear to be from the outside. Yolata has never liked anyone who is unwilling or unable to open themselves up to possibilities.

* IDEALISTIC: ----- There are many people who rely on Yolata and her positive attitude and general optimistic approach to the world. She knows the bad is out there; she lived through it after all but Yolata is the sort to focus upon the way ahead and not the negative echoes that remain. She wants to believed that they can survive this. After all, the first settlers must have felt something like this? Yolata is confident they can do no less than they did.

* SEEKS HARMONY: ----- Yolata has a devil's advocate approach to most things; she approaches everything as democratically as possible. Although it can sometimes drain her inner strength as a result of her tendency to avoid arguments as well as conflict in general.

* CREATIVE: ----- If she hadn't become a dragonrider, then Yolata knows she would have become a Harper, she loves to sing as well as tell stories and just generally be involved with creative pursuits. She'd never been brilliant at the hobbies which interest and distract her but no one can ever fault her enthusiasm that runs through and through.

The Magic Touch:
Yolata is a young woman who is and always will be marked by the events that have shaped so recently in her own history. While she is forward thinking; there is a fragility about her person. Something which may explain why she had not yet had a child. Perhaps fear of the possibility of bringing into the world a life which would have to face what remains so uncertain or even just because Yolata doesn't feel confident about doing it alone.

Tell us a story...



* 2572, 0 Born as the result of her father winning her mother's green dragons flight. Yolata is placed into the immediate care of the Fort Weyr creche as neither parent is interested in the responsibility of raising a child.

* 2574, 2 Yolata goes missing from the creche for several hours, prompting a search by the creche workers. She is found in a small nook of the kitchen stuffed full of sweet pies. 

* 2577, 5 She challenges her half-sister Nishitoll and the two of them engage in an impromptu wrestling match that results in a firm friendship being developed. Yolata is actually pleased to know that she has found family - something that she knows others are lacking.

* 2580, 8 As more of her siblings arrive in the creche both she and her brother help them settle in and Yolata regales them with stories as well as encouraging mischief and adventures as much as possible.

* 2583, 11 Yolata is Searched, this takes her from the creche and her siblings but she adjusts fairly well to the changes in her life.

* 2587, 15 She impresses at the same time as S'bok to the new mutation; the black dragon Neisoth. It barely registers as she is far to focused upon her own new and eternal companion of her heart.

* 2589, 17 Yolata experiences her dragon rising for the first time, it's a surprise as she never expected that to happen but once the initial surprise and embarrassment fade she is able to accept it as part of being a dragonrider and therefore move on. Yolata stays in contact with the man who won her dragon but they are friends and nothing more.

* 2590, 18 She isn't sure about what is going to end up happening now, not in the wake of the Holders and their actions. But Yolata is keen to do what she has to in order to make it work; after all it has too, they don't have any choice.

---

She chewed carefully, taking her time to savour the rich and sweet filling at the same time as she licked her lips clean of the flaky pastry that had broken up and stuck to her lips. Yolata didn't often get the chance to indulge her sweet tooth and she was keen to take the time to do so now in this private moment she'd managed to snag for a few minutes.

Yolata chuckled briefly at the thought of how sneaky she was being I suppose you deserve a treat; when am I to get one? the thoughts arrived just before the large head of her beloved green appeared in her line of vision "Soon my precious one; very soon. Though it will probably end up being more fish - are you going to be upset, hmm?" she asked, gently teasing and so very warm-hearted and compassionate even towards her dragon. Occasionally that resulted in these private moments between the two of them; when it was just the two of them.

Out of all those who were important to her, the green was the one who noticed most readily when Yolata needed these breaks from the world and everyone who demanded so much of from her deeply caring rider.

Dragon Details

Name:
Zephreth
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
27.6.2587 9th Interval
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kaelstath
Clutch Father:
Leremith
Measurements:

Mature Length: 24 meters
Mature Height: 5 meters
Mature Wingspan: 43 meters


General Appearance...

The pattern of dark colour with its mix of shadow and shade that now grace the edges and tips of her large wings once covered her whole body like a patchwork of odd freckles. It wasn't the most appealing initial look, Zephreth was definitely best described then as being splotchy or if the person wanted to be kind speckled.

While this didn't affect in the slightly how much Yolata loved her new bonded, it did make others wonder about the health of the green. Especially as she had arrived in the same clutch as the one that had resulted in the abomination of the black dragon. In time Zephreth proved them all wonderfully and utterly wrong and now as an adult she is actually on the large end of a green dragon.

Now she is all lean muscles lines, capable of holding her own in a wing and showing off from time to time when the mood strikes her, usually only when it is getting close to the time for her rise again. She is pale and refined and it shows in how she acts and behaves, though that doesn't make Zephreth unable to flaunt her strength of a stubborn attitude when the situation calls for it.


Personality...

Mind Voice: It is a honeyed sound, one that immediately appeals and draws the listener into wanting to hear more from the speaker. Zephreth often as a matter-of-fact quality when she speaking to her rider, she is the one who will be given the logical, sensible points and is the loudest voice when it comes to reminding Yolata about taking of herself and not allowing her to ignore the necessities like food and sleep.

Unusually Zephreth isn't terribly shy about talking to others, even non-riders and often not through her rider. She has a ringing edge to her normal voice - at least at first - as Zephreth tends to believe that they are a little slow or perhaps not as capable of understanding her talking at all.

Likes:

-- DRILLS ; this might surprise some people but Zephreth actually thrives on the discipline that it imposes and trains into her body and soul. She understands that these are lessons which for the most part she won't ever actually use but one day it will be passed along and that is something to look ahead while she focuses on being able to do every one of the drills perfectly.
-- SWEETS ; Zephreth is aware that this isn't strictly a healthy or valid part of her diet but like her rider she sees absolutely no issue with adding it from time to time. This is possibly one of the most obvious traits and habits that she shares with Yolata and it is what they both like doing when they are off on their own just relaxing.
-- LISTENING TO STORIES ; ever since she was a hatchling Zephreth has thrived on the story-telling that her rider indulges in. It has been something that has been retained into adulthood. She will when prompted or encouraged share some of her own but Zephreth is far happier being the audience not the speaker during story-time.

Dislikes:

-- ANYTHING THAT UPSETS HER RIDER ; the deep compassion of Yolata means that others will often take advantage of her caring nature and as a result of that Zephreth will not stand for anyone who either forces something upon her or else abuses that good nature.
-- OLD-SCHOOL PEOPLE ; basically this means anyone who isn't able to accept or adjust to the changes that are happening. Including the new dragon colours, Zephreth doesn't personally see anything wrong with them although she isn't completely sure what they will do or how they are integrated but now that her clutchmate seems to be consistently winning the flights it seems there are going to be more of them appearing soon, so that question is bound to be answered.
-- SHELLFISH ; just that. She doesn't like the taste, look or anything at all about the creatures and while she knows a lot of their food is coming from the ocean it doesn't mean that Zephreth has to like it very much and in fact she'll generally pass even when hungry.

Strengths:

* OBSERVANT : Zephreth is the sort of dragon who will notice the smallest detail about her surroundings as well as other dragons and people. While she it isn't something that affects very much Zephreth is actually very good at guessing who will impress at any hatching as well as who is pairing up with one another. She likes to play that sort of game with her rider.

* LOYAL & HARD-WORKING : she is a driven dragon, not one to allow much in the way of distractions to pull her away from the task at hand. In fact, Zephreth has managed to successfully focused her naturally flighty personality into using all that energy in a directed and even responsible fashion. It is a reflection of how much she loves Yolata and Zephreth knows it is important to her that this should be the case.

* TOLERANT : perhaps it is because she is one of the clutch-mates of the original black but Zephreth has always been very tolerant of the new colours. She is also young enough that it is could just be her youth assisting in helping out with the acceptance of it all.

Weaknesses:

* STRUGGLES TO MAKE HARD DECISIONS : Zephreth doesn't like to pick and choose and this more than anything else is the reason why she hasn't settled on a consistent or regular weyrmate - that and Yolata hasn't shown any preference. When it is time for her to make a tough choice she'll often try and encourage her rider into making the final decision so she can avoid it completely.

* DISLIKES COMMITMENT : at the moment she wants to live fast and free. Not wild but without anything tying her her down and preventing Zephreth from doing what she wants, when she wants to do it.

* STUBBORN : once her mind is truly set on a specific thing or task then it becomes pretty near impossible to shake Zephreth from being able to change her mind or alter the direction of what she had made chosen to do. She likes to believe this is more of a strength but is often the reason why Zephreth will become narrow-minded or make mistakes instead of her normal level-headed manner.

hihi!

I am an old/new player who has just come back to the site, so it's lovely to already see new faces coming aboard! I currently have a candidate, weyrling, fisher and well S'bok, also known as my inner grinch given his general overall hatred for well...everyone, more or less...

That being said, please feel free to hit me up with threads when you are ready!

As for the mutations; I agree wholeheartedly (has a red and black dragon (coughs discretely) but here at least there is sense, reason and more importantly no one is going wild with your blue-amber-platinum dragon or anything like that. I also don't like the idea of Golds and Bronzes impressing to anyone but girls and boys; but then again I fell in love with Pern as a girl and for me it will always be Golds for the girls etc. though I am comfortable with other colours having more variety.

In any case, welcome aboard and it's lovely to have you around. I hope to catch you sometime soon!

Candidate Erieen
-- would make the most sense, if you've no objections? Chore thread seems the most logical but I am open to any other ideas you have.

Sr. Journeyman Healer Niphredon
-- she was an apprentice healer before she was Searched. This is something I'd like her to continue with as much as she can as a Candidate. Sionann would definitely volunteer to help out as much as could with anything and everything.

Candidate Rinokan
-- again more candidate times together. She would appreciate and love some friends among the rest of the group. Well at least some.

Here is a little about Me
Bring to me all the threads!
If you have any doubt, you can check my tracker to see whether a specific time is available, otherwise, there isn't really going to be any kind of limit on my posting threads. If that ever changes this will be updated to reflect that. This applies to if you believe that I might have missed/forgotten/lost a thread, just give me a nudge on Discord or here and I'll hop right on over. Probably apologizing the whole time.

Comfort Level(s)
When it comes to content and comfort there isn't really a limit to the things I'll plot or play out; if you're concerned then please don't be shy about asking me, although it will generally be safe to assume I will be just fine with whatever you have in mind. With that in mind, should you not want to play something out with me, just give me a heads up and I will happily either fade to black or we can skip over any of the adult/taboo themes that you would prefer to avoid. Never, ever feel you have to do anything that would make you uncomfortable.
 
Wanted Ads
These are something like my candy, and I find it hard to say no. That being said, I will be cautious in signing up or taking on anything like that as I want to focus on not becoming overwhelmed (not likely) and also in avoiding ending up with life biting me (slightly more likely). However, if you want to tempt me you should definitely feel free to do just that.

Graphic Work
When the muse comes on me, making and resizing images, as well as recolors, edits and signatures much like my own here and on my characters are all things which I enjoy. If you want anything please feel free to just ask. I also can attempt blends, including ship graphics - although these are limited by image availability and my own amateur skills. These will also always come secondary to my other efforts, like posting etc. So, there are times when I might fall behind, but check my signature to see the links to either the avatar shop or the signature maker.
