Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
8.2590 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!


Feel free to say hello, guesties! Registered members can request a colored name here.



Remember,
this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

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

Everyone needs to eat [04.07.2590 / 12PM] Elrost
« on: June 15, 2017, 12:40:40 PM »
It was cooler then it had been for a few days and Nettanya for one was grateful for it. With her hair pulled back into a tight bun she was enjoying the cooling breeze on the back of her neck, the lack of a firelizard on her shoulder was also helpful - Flit was off sleeping somewhere, and she'd left Kerr watching the herdbeasts while she braved a trip into the crowded lower caverns in search of some lunch. Lunch which was now in a bag hanging from her arm.

"Where's Elrost?" she questioned of Kerr as she reached the edge of the Herdbeast pens, he hadn't been far off when she'd left but she couldn't immediately see him now. As the brown firelizard looked in the direction of the stables, Nettanya nodded and held out her free arm for the brown to climb onto. Once the brown was settled on her shoulder she started moving in the direction of the stables, spotting the other beastcrafter after a few moments.

"Hey! Lunchtime!" she called as she got closer, waving the bag with the food in the air to show him, "- even you can spare ten to eat, right?" There was a reason she'd brought the food back with her rather then just hurriedly eating back in the caverns, and that reason was the beastcrafter now stood in front of her. Glancing him up and down, Nettanya rested her free hand on her hip, raising an eyebrow at him - her way of challenging him to deny that he had time to eat.

Spoiler for OOC:
@Inki I certainly feel out of practice, so excuse the rustiness! And just let me know if anything needs changing - ie. I just picked a random date.

Elrost was working, he was always working. Most of the time when he didn't need to be, but a lot of the time because there were few other beastcrafters with the herdbeast experience that he had.

He had just finished his check up on one of the pregnant cows when he heard Nettanya call to him.

Opening his mouth to retort something along the lines of just after a few more cows, Elrost quickly snapped it shut again. The cock of her hip, the raised eyebrow, he knew that the apprentice was going to win this argument anyways. So there was no point.

Raising his hands in a defensive movement, he smiled, "Alright alright, no need to strong arm me. Let me just clean up." Quickly washing his hands in the cold water bucket by the stables doorway, he approached her whilst drying his hands on a rag.

"Thank you Netta."

"Good boy," grinning broadly as the other beastcrafter didn't argue even the tiniest bit, Netta eyed the ground around her while the other beastcrafter washed up.  Satisfied that there was a suitably clean area to sit (never a guaranteed fact), she lowered herself to the floor as the Elrost joined her again, crossing her legs in front of her she smiled up at him, "- I know what you're like."

"Rust all good?" she added, gesturing with her head towards the animal Elrost had just been checking over. Not that she believed the other beastcrafter would be stopping for lunch if anything was wrong wrong, but some of the cows needed extra monitoring from time to time.

Digging into the bag of food she brought with her, Netta pulled out a couple of chunks of bread and a bundle of wrapped up meat, it was basic, but perfectly adequate... and it wasn't fish, which was always a good day in Netta's book. Offered some of both to Elrost, Netta nudged the bag forward with her toe - there was a couple of meat rolls in there too, and she'd even managed to acquire a couple of sweet rolls for after.

"- I trust you're good too?"

Spoiler for naming of cows:
I don't know if they'd have named them all, but even if they didn't have official names Netta would have nicknamed at least a few  :happy:

"She's doing fine. It's a shame she's not pregnant yet, but everything seems in order. So there's always hope." Whilst some might've found the subject of herdbeast pregnancies not a very pleasant topic to talk about just before they ate, but it was simply a fact of life for Elrost. Part of his every waking second, which cows were ready, how far along they were, which ones were slightly off kilter.

"Mmm, thank you." He said, grabbing a chunk of bread from the handful, and ripping off a piece of meat, wrapping one around the other and taking a healthy bite.

It was a pleasant enough day, cool enough to make the rays of Rukbat inoffensive, but not freezing as to require extra layers of clothing. Elrost always seemed to chafe at that. He wanted to wear shirt and pants and be done with it.

"Very well. I've been... spending a lot of time with Seng as you know. So it's been different, but I'm not complaining." He had wanted to ask her about their relationship for a long time.

The two of them were siblings he knew that much, but they didn't seem to know each other. Sometimes he felt like he was the one to introduce the two of them, despite them being related. Nettanya always became... different around Seng, and Seng was usually quiet and respectful around most anyways.

Casting a disappointed glance at the cow in question as Elrost advised that she wasn't pregnant still, as equally unconcerned by the discussion of pregnancy and cows at lunch, Netta made a mental note of the fact before dismissing the thought from her mind. There wasn't much she could do to change the cows lack-of-pregnancy, but she habitually kept a mental list of which cows were pregnant and which weren't. Force of habit perhaps, but she liked to know.

Waiting till Elrost had taken his food before copying the gesture, Netta took a mouthful herself - chewing it slowly to savour the taste. Food always tasted extra nice when sat outside in the sunshine, and lunch after a hard mornings work was always lovely too (as long as it wasn't fish!).

At Elrost's answer and reference to Seng, Netta quickly took another bite of her food, and again took her time over chewing it. This time however, it wasn't the taste that was absorbing her mind, but the slight nervousness that always came over her at the thought of Seng. She wasn't stupid enough to think the subject would never come up, and she didn't always dread the subject either - she liked to know things about him, and know that things were good - but it was still a strange subject to her...

"It's good for you to have a life outside of work," Netta stated eventually, when she couldn't draw out her mouthful any longer without it coming across as odd, "- and it's good to have non-herder friends," as much as she loved her work friends, it was nice to have some where the conversation didn't always turn to work.

"- And people who are more then friends," she added in a bit of a rust a moment later, glancing up and offering Elrost a quick smile - she was trying to show she was okay with that fact, but whether it came across that way or not she couldn't be sure. She knew Elrost and Seng were more then just friends, she'd seen them around enough to know that, but she wasn't entirely sure what they were, and thinking about Seng's love life somehow felt strange to her - although Seng in general just made her feel weird.

She'd noticed the change in Elrost though, and that thought made her smile, Seng really did make him happy, and she hoped (and from what she'd seen) Elrost made Seng happy too... but, she didn't know Seng as well in order to judge.

Spoiler for Hidden:
@Inki Super super delayed, sorry!

Edit: For anyone reading this who doesn't know Netta's bio - she loves Seng, but didn't grow up with Seng - so, Seng's family and he's not and it confuses her brain!

Elrost reddened a little bit, and as much as Nettanya's approval or disapproval wouldn't have changed anything with how he felt about Seng, it was nice to know that she was okay with it. Even if she didn't seem as close with Seng as he would have expected for a brother and sister.

Although he supposed he and Keassa might've looked the same. They weren't close as children, and connected later on in life, finding a family with each other again after all those turns. Maybe Seng and Nettanya just needed to find each other, that was all.

"What about Seng having people who are more than friends outside of riders?" It was a simple enough question, perhaps a little indiscrete, a little... prying. But Elrost was genuinely curious, caring about both of them, although admittedly in their separate ways. If there was anything he could do to help them, if there was anything he needed to know, shards, even if they simply just didn't like each other. That would be a good thing to know.

If they didn't want to spend time around one another, Elrost wouldn't be trying to force them together anymore. They were siblings, but they didn't have to act like it if they didn't want to. Elrost just wanted to know whether that was actually what they wanted or not.
