Rider Weyrs / Re: It’s warm in the weyr [ 29.3.2591 / 7PM ] Velatha

The walk took a long time. B’nyn knew it would, but even so there was a faint chill of panic. He’d suspected she was actually sick, but the fact she couldn’t move quick at all and had to stop a couple of times along the way really confirmed it. Even so, he was a Rider and wouldn’t let panic get the better of him when he was in the middle of doing something important. Like escorting the woman he loved to the Healer’s Hall.

He could tell the closer they got because the noise kicked up and the tunnels became a bit more cluttered. Thankfully, there was a breeze from outside that served to keep it from being too stifling. They both passed a couple of people leaning against the tunnel walls that B’nyn quietly asked if they were ok. Riders that waved him on and promised they’d be fine.

People B’nyn made a mental note to go back for once he was sure Velatha was delivered to the Hall herself. While the illness wasn’t fatal – not to his knowledge – he didn’t want anyone passed out in the halls in their own vomit.

Actually arriving at the Healer’s Hall was just... messy. There were so many that were still waiting around getting processed, Healer’s running around doing all manner of things. B’nyn had actually hoped that given the late mark it’d have quieted down but no such luck. He had Velatha lean against him as they eventually found what must have been the processing line. Or what he hoped was since it seemed to be the place that others were likewise flocking and stumbling to.

The Healer’s Hall was just... full. He hadn’t seen it like that since the Pass. “It’ll just be a bit longer,” he murmured softly over the din of conversation and diagnosis in the Hall. He had no way of knowing just how long it really would be, he was just trying to be comforting.

B’nyn didn’t take it as a bad sign that she was talking, and thinking, about things other than how badly she felt. So when she said she wanted to help oil Niskyleth, well, he couldn’t help but smile. “Of course. As soon as you’re feeling better, I’ll teach you how to do just that.” It also warmed him a little to hear that she wanted to. Not because he needed help tending his dragon, but because the Brown was a big… well… major part of B’nyn’s life and incredibly important to him. That she wanted to take care of Niskyleth too mattered.

It was sweet. Even now.

When she reached for him, B’nyn helped to steady her. Patiently waiting. Always. If she threw up in the weyr, or along the way, he’d be sure to get it taken care of. After she was safe in the Healer’s Hall. When she asked him about his day, B’nyn didn’t ask why. He could guess. Instead, he tried to maintain the smile for her while supporting her and began in a calm, soothing fashion to talk about the drills they did, the fishing, and every detail therein. Sparing her nothing if only so she could hear his voice and have something else to focus on while he ever so slowly tried to direct her to the door. Moving only when it seemed she was ready to take the steps, but still wanting to encourage her to do so.

The Brown didn’t want to risk making Velatha anymore uncomfortable than she already was, so he didn’t respond to her directly. Rather, he continued to thrum into the weyr in a low, comforting sound while he watched. He also didn’t need to tell B’nyn that he should take care of his mate and worry about the straps later.

They both knew they’d not be an immediate bother.

The concern did make B’nyn smile just a little though. “Don’t worry about him. He’ll be fine while I help you down to the Healer’s Hall.” There was no way on Pern that he was going to let her wander down there on her own in the condition she was in. Even if it meant taking one very slow step at a time. He lightly rubbed her back while she took the moment, and breath, to figure out if she’d even be able to stand. If B’nyn had some sort of bucket, he’d have offered it to her but it… just wasn’t the sort of thing he kept in their weyr. Up until now, there was just no reason for it. “We’re just going to go slow, at whatever pace you set, and Niskyleth will wait until we’re both sure you’re ok.” Only then did B’nyn stand and offer her his hand. Not rushing, of course, but patiently waiting until Velatha was ready to try and make the – what was going to be a very long trip for her – way to the healer’s hall.

B’nyn instantly was next to her when she moved to sit up and looked utterly unsteady doing something so simple. One hand on her lower back, the other on her knee. Just in case she needed something more from him. She looked pale and sweaty. Certainly unwell.

At her question, he nodded a little. “They were busy when I left. You aren’t the only one feeling under the weather.” A severe understatement. It was easier to count the people that weren’t sick.  “Regardless, it’s important to get you there if you are sick. This doesn’t go away on its own.” Which was certainly true.

Niskyleth thrummed, trying to be comforting. It was going to be a long walk from their weyr. Neither the dragon nor the Rider thought it was a good idea to try and get her there on dragonback. She’d likely throw up on the Brown.

B’nyn didn’t like what she had to say any more than he liked the rising panic that she might actually have what was going around the weyr. He watched the mound of furs that was Velatha, feeling entirely hopeless. For a brief moment, he considered just... picking her up and taking her there anyways. But that would probably be more upsetting to her than it would be helpful.

Probably the Brown agreed, watching from his place on the ledge. Still wrapped in his straps. Not that the dragon was complaining while there was a potentially ill Velatha in the weyr.

B’nyn took a deep breath and tried again. “If you are sick, you need to see the healers. It could be serious.” He was trying really, really hard to sound calm and controlled and not the panicked Rider he really felt.

That hope quickly turned into panic when B’nyn realized the mound of furs on the bed was Velatha. And that moan didn’t sound very reassuring either. Frowning, he sat on the edge of the bedfurs and asked, “Have you been in here all day?” It seemed like a stupid question as soon as he said it, because that wasn’t really the important part.

Not when she seemed to sound as ill as... well, most of the people in the weyr. “Velatha, if you’re not feeling well, we should get you down to the Healer’s Hall.” B’nyn knew that was going to be a chore too. The place was swarming with so many others that were sick and feverish. Nothing seemed like a better idea though...

Hearing about what was going on was the worst. Seeing how many of his own Wingmates that were down and out, feeling ill, was also pretty bad. Luckily, B’nyn was feeling... well, right as rain. No fever, no rumbling stomach. As such, he felt entirely obligated to do as much as he could when it came time to fish. There were crafters missing, his own wing was so low on Riders...

It was a long day.

Enough so he almost felt guilty that he hadn’t thought about whether or not Velatha might be ill until the day was pretty much over. He’d been so concerned with everything he had to do that it just...

Niskyleth landed on the ledge to their weyr and B’nyn was quick to slide off his dragon. Looking for Velatha to see if she was there. Hoping that she’d not come down with the same fever that seemed to be spreading through the weyr.


"Uh right." Tressie felt sick to her stomach, but this woman wasn't even making sense anymore. Shards, what was taking this line so long to move. It was the Hall making her feel sick, that was for sure, and this woman who looked like she might pass out at her feet now.

"Actually, she's really not all that lovely." Tresrissa said breathily, trying to avoid thinking about the sweat breaking out on cheeks and the bile in her throat. "Uh Tressisk," she said, eyeing the other woman's placement of hand on forehead, "Can you go get someone?" Tresrissa had to stop speaking to swallow heavily. "Because I'm not sure either of us are going to make it."

Tressisk's mind immediately conferred an image of Tavianna, then Notkerric, Nyc and Nealros. "Not them you silly thing. They don't know a thing about healing. A healer Tressisk, a healer."

With slightly clearer instructions, Tressisk nosed anxiously away from her handler, before pushing away and barrelling towards the nearest healer. The green was slightly less gentle than she could have been, not wanting to communicate properly with anyone else but still wanting them to come as quickly as possible. Eventually she resorted to getting behind the healer and pushing them, her head pressed up against their lower back, guiding them towards Tresrissa and the other ill woman.

Z'tai / K'rez: Let's start with the reporting one and @SanctifiedSavage can throw K'eeda in if she'd like.

Z'tai / Arlais: Sounds good! Maybe pre-2590 would be good since I have no threads with him before then so no timeline conflict.

Z'tai / Others: Let's hold off on them for now. I could see maybe a history with Vestanna and maybe meet Sionann in the future. And I can't think of anything with S'bok just yet, but maybe future events will give us an opening.

Callista / Arlais: No idea how I didn't think of that! Yes, they would get along well.

M'kale / Arlais / Sionann: He and Arlais have probably slept together in the past pre-Daysa since he tended to keep to Jungle greens more than not. He'll respect her as a wingmate, but not much of a talker beyond that. Might help with individual training or wing-related things. For Sionann, maybe we'll hold off on them meeting for now unless you want her to have a bad rider experience.

K'mar / Carayia: We could do something with them. Maybe she's assigned to help a rider with something and either she's assigned to help a Beach Wingsecond or she picks him? For like a random task? Or they happen to run into one another. K'mar can randomly be found in the kitchens sometimes.

Definitely at least want to start the Z'tai / K'rez and Z'tai/ Arlais threads first. We can do whomever gets to them first?
