Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
4.2590 A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every 4 or 5 OOC days. This means our story is ever evolving and Southern Winds is changing. Events for the current month are listed here, once you've registered for an account.

Our roleplay time is pretty fluid. We allow you to play anything that may have happened in the past, but not in the future, as events that may affect the entire weyr may ruin futuristic plots.

We list Flights, Clutches, and Hatchings for both Dragons and Flits here, as well as whers.  There are Candidate events and classes and Crafter plots. A little bit of something for everyone.

See previous events here!

Welcome!

Hello and Welcome!


http://southernwindsweyr.net/Images/news icon copy.png We are a mature, 9th Interval AU Pern. We've destroyed almost the entire planet in a catastrophic event. While we feature 2 new mutations, we stick pretty close to canon. We've Ranks, roles, and positions for just about anyone who wants to get involved, with a relaxed community. Play and post at your own pace. Swing by and say hello!

Registration?
Southern Winds uses a subaccount system to distinguish between Players and their Characters. So REGISTER with your Player Account Name and the admin will assign you your Character Subaccount once your character is approved!

Southern Winds is a Mature Roleplay. This means we allow for sexual, violent content that would be found in a struggling, 9th Interval Pern. Sex is common place in the Weyr and terrible deaths are no stranger here. As such, our players should be 18+. These themes are to be handled maturely at all times.

Regards,
Southern Winds Weyr

The first never ends [ 1.4.2590 / 4PM ] - Erieen
« on: January 19, 2017, 02:00:48 AM »
Yes, it was rather foolish to imagine that there could be any sort of end to these sort of tasks; the chores had to be done and there had to be a rota so eventually Sionann would swing around to being on the list again for tending to the herdbeasts and their needs.

She'd never managed to be comfortable around the large animals and that didn't actually manage to improve when she was then forced to pick up their waste and clean out their stalls. It was the smell. The sudden wash of it was more than enough to make her gag and have to stop in order to get her stomach back under control; which explained why her hand was on the side of one of the stalls, head bent and a hacking sound coming out of her mouth. Sionann really, really didn't want to empty her stomach.

There were two solid reasons for this, one which was that she'd have to clean it up and the other was that she didn't want to appear to be some kind of idiot to anyone presently around her at the moment either.

Sionann had vowed that she would make a good impression right at the start of her time as a candidate and that hadn't changed in the months, years since. Even if Sionann knew she'd never get used to the odour of the herdbeasts or that sudden visceral reaction from her gut.

Having grown up a drudge, Erieen was no stranger to a wide variety of unsavory chores. After a while he’d just… gotten used to them, he supposed, as much as he also hated that fact. Of course, he knew that if he did ever Impress, there’d be no end to chores as a dragon rider either. But it was the type that rankled him most, the sort of things that reminded him where he had come from—and where he very well might end up again if no dragon chose him.

But of all of them, mucking out herdbeast stalls was one he’d never had to do until moving to the weyr. And, likewise of all of them, he hated it most.

So he couldn’t really blame the other Candidate he was working with for her reaction. The smell seemed like a punishment in and of itself, clawing down his nose and throat when he made the mistake of breathing wrong. And neither were good options—if through nose, then he was assaulted by the smell. And the idea of breathing in through his mouth, and with the chance of then swallowing it if any of the filth had made it into the air, was unthinkable.

So it was only reluctantly that he asked, “Are you okay?” At least her almost being sick gave him a reason to pause for the time being.

"...no, I have to say on the scale of being alright this is way, way off that scale" she answered, not looking up to even see who was asking. Sionann was sure she just needed a moment or so more to get her stomach on side to do the chore she'd been assigned.

As the roiling in her belly settled enough that Sionann felt it as possible to look up and not end up spilling her lunch all over the place, she recognised that it was another candidate who was speaking to her "umm hi there...I mean; thanks for asking" she swallowed down heavily "I think...no, I'm sure I just need some fresh air or something and that will help probably" she concentrated on not breathing in too deeply because that was most definitely not going to help.

"How does anyone cope with this smell all the time?" she questioned, not really expecting him to provide an answer but needing to express something of her own frustration and disgust.

Erieen couldn’t help but take the girl’s answer a bit waspishly, and he scowled some though surely she couldn’t see it. But the expression dissolved back into neutrality when she looked up at him, and the sort-of apology she offered mollified him somewhat. Probably, any annoyance she might have actually meant by her answer was simply because of the nausea.

Even so, she didn’t look well despite seeming to have recovered some. “Maybe we should go outside for a bit then,” he suggested. The Crafters around them seemed to agree, one of the Herders motioning to them that it’d be alright. They likely didn’t want the girl to be sick any more than she did, and Erieen didn’t really want to be witness to her vomiting either. Just the thought of it made his own stomach roll dangerously.

In answer to her question, as he turned some, under the impression that she’d no doubt take the opportunity to get some of the fresh air she just mentioned, he commented, “No idea. I imagine they just get used to it.” A terrible thought, really.

"I've tried to but...apparently I fail at that" she sighed, before taking in a deep lungful of the mercifully clear air, at least of the stink from the beasts "...I'm Sionann by the way and that has to rank as the worst way I've ever met anyone" she admitted, sounding more than moderately rueful about it all.

Looking over at him she sighed again, letting out that rush of pleasant and refreshing air "Sorry if I was a bit short back there" Sionann was a generally nice person. At least nice enough not to end up being rude and let it go by without some kind of apology once her mind had settled, like now "Do you think if I begged to do anything, and I mean anything else they'd consider it?" she was fairly sure the actual helpers would approve and support that action on her part. If not actively seek it out.

“I don’t imagine most people would even want to.” Erieen certainly didn’t. No, if he never had to muck out another herdbeast or runner stall again, it would be too soon. What little fondness he might have for the barn, at the memory of being Searched there, couldn’t stand up to the smell and just now filthy everything was. The beasts themselves weren’t so bad, he supposed, idly fascinated by their soft fur and gentle eyes. There was nothing else on Pern quite like them. But did they have to be so damn dirty?

“It’s alright, anyway. I’m Erieen.” Another member of their class might have been annoyed that Sionann didn’t know his name already, but, well… there were a lot of Candidates. And he hadn’t known hers either. Probably mostly because he tended to keep to himself. Sure, Erieen didn’t mind being social with the right people, but so many of the other Candidates just seemed so naïve that he… didn’t always feel any great desire to talk to them.

He did sigh a bit at her question. “They probably would.” But if she couldn’t handle the stench of the work they’d been assigned, that just meant all the more for him to do. Already he wasn’t thrilled at having to do chores in the evening that day instead of just the morning, but so be it. Erieen didn’t think he could duck out of it when Sionann had a very good and genuine reason to instead.

She sighed "Then you might get left alone..." she murmured, Sionann had enough common sense to realise that even if they did let her go away to something else, it wouldn't necessarily mean that Erieen got some more assistance to help him out. Which wouldn't be fair...

Of course, emptying her stomach out until she just ended up dry heaving was probably not the best thing to do either. Not for her own long-term sense of wellness but Sionann had dealt with things that she didn't like before, she could do this. She could. Probably. Well, definitely maybe, probably. If she really concentrated on it all "Perhaps if I just try dashing in and out or something? Or hold my breath...or...." she sighed again, Sionann, honestly didn't have a real good idea for how to cope to her reaction to the stench coming off those animals.

It would have helped but she was still trying to figure out if that even mattered. Did Erieen mind? They weren't friends but she also didn't like the thought of just abandoning him either.

In response to her question, Erieen just shrugged a shoulder. “If it happens, it happens. Have to do what you need to and all that.” He didn’t say it, but he was also thinking that he didn’t really relish the idea of getting to see anyone throw up. He’d never been the sort to do so just because someone else had, but it was still unpleasant. And if she was going to be doubled over the whole time unable to breathe and fighting down nausea, whether or not she was still there made little difference to him.

Instead, he said, “There’s no point in making yourself sick if it’s really that bad. I’m sure they can find something else for you to do that’s in an area with fresher air.”

Erieen surprised himself a little in that he wasn’t… angry about this. Sure, it was frustrating and somewhat annoying, but he didn’t think Sionann was faking just to get out of chores. Not judging by how sick she’d looked before they’d gone outside. So while it was unfortunate, it wasn’t really her fault. Even so, on a worse day he might have been resentful regardless. But much like how he’d been viewing life recently in general, he just saw the situation with a sense of resignation.

"Thank you for being so understanding, I still feel like...well I don't feel good about just abandoning you to do all the work alone. Perhaps if you bring out the barrow and I can sort out the buts for outside or something?" she really didn't want to up and leave him to do it all on his own.

Sionann was just as certain that she couldn't actually just go in and try again, not without something going horribly wrong in terms of her throwing up completely and that would never, ever do. Not at all "You've been more than helpful...thank you so much" she repeated, truly and sincerely meaning it and hoping that somehow it would be possible to make it up to him even if right now she couldn't see a way to make that happen.
