Current Month
7.2591 A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every OOC week. 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 Whers here, though not for firelizards.  There are Candidate events, Weyrling classes, Holder plots, and Crafthall developments -- 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.

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!

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

One Last Time [22.08.2590 / 8:30pm] A'lori
« on: August 31, 2017, 04:00:05 PM »
You're getting another firelizard? The green asked with disbelief and a little bit of humour tinging her ton.

Inanna, walking happily through the cave systems, swinging her arms with a spring in her step. Cremath's words did not phase her, she had made up her mind, besides what was one more? So she simply ignored her dragon.

This is the last one right?

Maybe, so what if I want one more?

You've already got three baby firelizards, soon to be four.

Inanna snorted at Cremath's seriousness, breaking her refusal to respond to Cremath's questions. This is the last one I swear, besides, Miss will be so excited to have another flitter in our little faire.

Yes, she will indeed.

The little Gold had turned out to be a right stubborn little thing, almost the complete opposite of her sweet tempered and shy green dragon. She was surely a formidable leader of the group that Inanna had assembled. Not that Inanna had had any choice with any of the firelizards, but she liked to think that she did.

Inanna had heard of a firelizard clutch by one of the Weyrlings. It wasn't uncommon for a clutch to be sitting on the sands at any given time in the Weyr. There were enough Golds flying around after all. But there had been something about the way they hadn't put a notice up on the Weyrhall board that made Inanna want to go help them out. After all, she didn't want them to be stuck with a faire of their own if they weren't distributed in time. That was it, she was doing it for the Weyrling's benefit, and her own procurement of a firelizard egg would be a convenient bonus.

Sure. The green sensed Inanna's direction of thought and the green rider was sure she would have heard a dragonlike snort if they were within hearing distance of the other.

Popping her head into the Weyrling barracks she looked around in the common room, taking note of those in the room. Unfortunately, Inanna hadn't found out the name of the firelizard owner through the gossip mill of the Weyr, and so she was pretty much on her own from here.

"Hello," she addressed those in the room brightly, "I'm looking for a firelizard egg, and I was told this is the place to be."

Slowly but surely, people were starting to approach him for eggs from Vanity’s clutch. There were still quite a few—most—of them left, but A’lori was hoping things would pick up over the next month before they inevitably hatched. With four fire lizards of his own and a dragon to boot, he couldn’t imagine possibly bonding to any more of the creatures, much as he liked them. There just didn’t seem to be any more space in his head for those telepathic presences, and he wanted to be sure that he could responsibly care for all the ones he had anyway. Bonding to more just seemed inadvisable.

Most of the weyrlings spent time in the Common Area of their barracks after chores were done for the day, relaxing as much as they were allowed and idly chatting, tending to their gear, playing games with the occasional spare mark or rare pack of cards that had survived the Pass. Even more so than usual, though, A’lori had taken to spending time there of late—primarily so that he would be readily available for anyone who heard he was distributing fire lizard eggs and wanted to snag their own.

But also because, as his dragon had noted the night prior, they wouldn’t be living there much longer. It was difficult to imagine, but there was little more than a month left before everyone in his class would be moving into ground weyrs—their own spaces so different from the shared rooms of the Weyrling Barracks. One of the first signs that Queriluth and her clutchmates were now closer to adulthood than hatching.

So there was a sense of nostalgia that came along with it all. They would still be meeting in the Common Area, of course, and the ground weyrs only came with a certain amount of freedom. But A’lori didn’t want to regret not soaking in these moments while he had the chance.

He’d just finished combing out his long hair and rebraiding when a woman he didn’t recognize stepped into the Barracks. Perhaps a rider, given her seeming ease with the surroundings, though he couldn’t be sure. And when she announced her reason for being there, he smiled brilliantly and stood. “Yes, it is! You must be looking for me.” The Green weyrling held out his free hand. “I’m A’lori, and my Gold has eggs I’m trying to give away.”

"Ah A'lori. Pleasure to meet you." Inanna couldn't help but admire his hair, she kept hers slightly longer than shoulder length just for ease of drills and tying it back, but boy did this Weyrling keep his in beautiful order.

After only a brief distraction, Inanna grasped his hand in the friendly greeting. "Inanna, Green Cremath." She added as traditionally one might, but Inanna just liked adding Cremath so that others knew. It had helped in their Weyrlinghood, the more that knew her name, the more socialisation the shy green had gotten.

"Trying? That seems like the operative word." Her nose crinkled with the smile, as she made friendly conversation. "How many have you managed so far?"

Speaking of... where are my three?

They all just blinked away, so I'm assuming they're on their way to you.

"Ah yes." Inanna assumed that Miss wouldn't want to miss out on this opportunity to give her opinion on the egg. "Here are mine now." Despite being the youngest, Miss had taken the lead, Terra only slightly behind, although his sharp movements looked annoyed, and Khaos flew lazy circles behind. "I assume they're all here to help me choose, since they seem to run my life now."

The woman’s handshake was firm but not overly so, and A’lori returned it cheerfully. Even if he did flush with faint embarrassment almost immediately afterward. He probably should have introduced himself with Queriluth’s name too, as she had with her own dragon. So his next smile to her was shy. “It’s nice to meet you too, Inanna. A Green rider, hmm? That means I should make sure you get the best egg, right?” Still shy though it was, A’lori’s smile widened some. “My Queriluth is a Green too.”

Of course, there wasn’t one “best” egg, beyond maybe Gold for those who wanted to bond to a Queen. But nevertheless, A’lori felt a certain instant kinship with fellow Green riders. And Inanna seemed perfectly friendly, with a rather charming way that her nose crinkled when she smiled.

“It’s something of an effort,” he added with a faint laugh. “I’ve only gotten a handful handed out so far. As much as people seem eager for flits the rest of the time, it’s like tunnelsnakes going to ground when there’s actually a clutch going.” Or so he’d found, anyway. A less secure person might have thought perhaps it was them; but A’lori was determined he just had to find the right people in need of eggs.

He didn’t necessarily want to have to force them on his classmates, but he would if he had to.

Delighted when Inanna’s little faire popped out of Between, A’lori cooed to them with a smile. “My four seem to be of the same mind. Always have been.” Motioning toward where a short tunnel led to the group of weyrs that included his and A’tor’s, he continued with, “Let’s go look at the eggs, shall we? Vanity—my Gold—might be a little fussy, but she should behave herself.”

More or less. A sleepy aside to her rider, but a familiar one. Queriluth was ever unamused with the tiny Queen.

A'lori had an endearing blush about him it seemed. What exactly had brought it along Inanna wasn't so sure, but it was refreshing to see someone so expressive. She nudged him with her elbow. "You better! Us greenriders have gotta stick together."

She laughed easily along with the Weyrling. "Oh shards, I do not have high hopes for when Miss gets around to clutching." The queen winged over to her at the mention of her name, gracefully alighting her thin body on Inanna's shoulder, her dragon-like head dipping to rub against her bonded's chin. "But surely some of the other Weyrlings will take them off your hands. My mother always said that you always want to give more work to those who are already busy." Inanna said matter of factly. "They'll handle it better."

At the mention of the clutch, Inanna's grin widened. "Lead the way!" She loved the little asides that people always added about their firelizards. How easily their personalities became a part of their every day life. Alori's Vanity seemed like a fussy one, but she was part of Alori's... tribe. It was moments like these that had made Inanna decide to start her own faire.

“That we do. Though I suppose Blue riders aren’t so bad. Or maybe I’ve just gotten used to having one as a roommate.” A’tor wasn’t in at the moment—and neither were Yedeth or Risk. Off creating havoc, maybe, or just socializing. They didn’t really seem the sort to dedicate a lot of time to extra training, so A’lori didn’t anticipate that’s where they were. Either way, it meant he and Inanna were alone in their room save for all of the dragonkin about.

Queriluth didn’t raise her head when the other rider stepped into the room:  she never paid anyone else much mind, and A’lori had long ago stopped feeling like he needed to apologize for it. But he could feel her attention settle on the other Green rider for a moment, before moving to her fire lizards. And then she closed her eyes again, on the verge of napping where she was laying on her sleeping couch.

It was difficult to reconcile just how much she’d grown. The expanse of space used to swallow her up. And though she was still small compared to a Bronze or Brown that might otherwise have occupied it, her trim and agile body was still closer to that of an adult dragon than a hatchling now.

Vanity, brooding over her clutch of eggs, was far more attentive to the appearance of strangers in the room. She was used to A’lori handing out her children to what he judged to be good homes, and fussy though she might be the little Queen wasn’t openly hostile toward anyone when it came time to disperse her latest clutch. But the presence of another Gold did make her previously blue eyes break into a few strands of swirling red.

“Oh hush,” A’lori chided as he began to shoo her away from the little sand-filled pot where her eggs rested. “I’m sure Inanna’s Gold won’t hurt them.”
