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.

The whole idea of a Gather at the Weyr had been a bit daunting at first. When the Weyrlingmasters had all but told them that they’d be attending, S’nis had seriously thought about running off and hiding. That many people? All together? In the Weyrbowl?

Masath was having none of it. She was thrilled. Excited. Something to do other than being stuck doing nothing. When the Gather really began taking shape, it took all of S’nis’ considerable willpower to keep her at his side. She wanted to explore, to see it all, to visit everyone. Never before had she seen so many people, so many different people and it was all quite fascinating.

Even S’nis had to admit, through her innocent eyes, it was actually quite nice. Everyone coming together, to visit, to explore the different craft booths. Even he let her lead him around, not to play the games, but see what was out on display. Arriving at the Fisher’s Booth turned out to be a battle of wills where Masath demanded over and over, with peeps and trills, that she must have a shiny.

So there S’nis had actually spent one of his marks to get her a shell. He’d felt supremely silly but the Fishers there had taken it all in great stride, smiling at him and even cooing sweetly at the still small Red. If they harbored any ill will toward her or her color, not a one showed it. Though she was growing quite long, the short Red trotted after him. Her new shiny shell in her mouth.

At least it kept her from peeping anymore.

Soon enough, the Red pair found themselves at the runner races. They’d arrived just in time to watch five runners take off around the marked track. The animals were… beautiful. Sleek and powerful, clearly eager to be out and running as much as Masath was to join them. S’nis smiled a little, put a hand on her wing to keep her in place, and fidgeted with his remaining marks.

They’d been encouraged to spend them, of course, but the hustle and bustle of all those over near the betting tables was… well, just a bit too much for him. He’d wait. Maybe… maybe it’d die down? Besides, watching the Runners run was quite a show it and of itself.

Tresrissa had enjoyed the morning so far, it was lively and there were people everyone. People she hadn't met before, and she wouldn't get into trouble for meeting... not just this once. And besides, she was here to have fun. The others might be here to make a good impression, and Tresrissa surely wouldn't try to do anything to ruin that, but she wasn't going to just not have fun on a day like this.

Nyc was fun for a while, but he had all the kids to deal with, and after playing the fishers game and getting bored by the expectation she stop and let children have a go, Tressie simply got bored with them. Waving her family goodbye, she checked out the other booths. Her face was painted in pastels, blues and pinks in waving swirling patterns. There had been a cute guy there, but unfortunately she'd gotten this old crone, she was nice enough, but hadn't occupied her attention long enough to stay.

She jingled her slightly smaller amount of marks in her hand as she walked, enjoying the satisfying tinkling sound. The knife booth didn't seem incredibly interesting but she had seen Ophyonis over there previously, so perhaps she should go bet on her parents man? Yes, Ophy would surely appreciate the gesture.

Through the gap between the booths, Tressie was distracted however. Oh wow... The runners. They were beautiful creatures weren't they? Even the food couldn't distract her from watching their powerful, glistening bodies. Flinging her arms over the barrier which separated the general public from the track, she leaned up against it so watch the race in wonder.

Tressisk wasn't interested. Instead, watching the crowd behind Tressie, in case anyone untoward were to approach whilst Tresrissa's attention was otherwise occupied.

However, as expected, when the race was over, Tressie's attention quickly needed to be recaptured, and she looked around for her next event. And there she saw him. A Weyrling, with a little red dragon. He looked... hesitant, or perhaps he was just watching the races. Either way, he seemed... interesting.

When Tresrissa approached, Tressisk was decidedly unhappy at the idea of her approaching a strange dragonrider and dragon. "They're beautiful aren't they?" She gave him a slow smile, and gestured towards the races but without looking away from him.

S’nis didn’t notice the lady or her wher, but Masath did. The Red found the runners interesting, sure, but her Bonded wasn’t about to let her chase, or race, them so her interest began to wane. While Masath did want S’nis to enjoy himself, and invariably relax, the little Red could find things to entertain herself.

Such as this seemingly friendly girl. She trilled her greeting to Tresrissa and her wher, eyes a pretty green to match the wher’s hide. Invariably drawing S’nis’ attention to her just in time to catch what she was saying to him.

To him. Someone, not a dragon rider, was actually going out of their way to talk to him. Reflexively, his gaze swept over her but it was a cursory look. More to see if he could discern anything more about her other than the fact she was a wher handler. Because that was obvious.

Smile, silly, she instructed.

Oh. Right. S’nis did just that, but it was tentative. “The runners? Yes. I… It seems silly, but I didn’t realize we had them still. I… I get so caught up.. It’s nice to take a moment to appreciate what we have.” At that, S’nis did look away from her and to the runners that were being brushed down for another race, where people were calling out new bets. There was a lot of excitement around the booth.

Your name, she suggested gently.

Ah. Right. He looked back to the pretty stranger with one of his awkward smiles. “Name’s S’nis. Yours?”

When the little Red directly addressed her, even with something as simple as that little trill, Tresrissa politely returned her gesture with a happy and cheery smile. Whilst she knew in general that her family didn't think too highly of the dragonriders of the Weyr, and whilst she personally didn't understand the life that they seemed to choose to lead, that didn't mean she couldn't enjoy a conversation with someone.

All in all, Tressie was curious. She had heard all sorts of interesting things about these new red dragons. They were violent, didn't like people, enjoyed causing pain, were just insane little runts. This one however, seemed friendly enough, and considering she looked actually a little smaller than Tressisk at the moment, Tresrissa didn't really see what all the fuss was about.

"Ma and I love them, I wish we got to see more of them." If S'nis' pause between his next words was anything longer than one might typically want from a conversation, Tressie didn't notice, her attention too had been drawn back to the runners, and sweeping over the crowd, some faces she knew, some she didn't, all simply having fun and enjoying a day together. A perfect kind of day in her opinion.

However when he spoke again, she did politely turn her attention back to him. After all, there was only so long her attention could be kept by staring at people she saw everyday, and runners that all looked pretty much the same.

"I'm Tresrissa." She said with a smile, holding out her hand delicately for a shake. Sure, it wasn't something that was required for her, usually that was something her parents seemed to reserve for business transactions, but Tresrissa personally enjoyed the action. "Or Tressie. Take your pick."

With Tresrissa's hand now firmly within the rider's personal space, Tressisk pushed closer against her thigh, eyes trained carefully on where their hands were to meet. The green had never particularly liked the speed at which Tressie took to be open and inviting to complete strangers. "Oh, and this is Tressisk." Unlike the Red's polite greeting, the green made no such move to do the same. "What's your lovely... dragon's name?" She asked brightly and with a smile, only slightly hesitating when she realised she had no clue how to identify the gender of his dragon.

It was moments like this that reminded S’nis that he wasn’t really well socialized. Far better at putting his head down and completing tasks. Even so, with an encouraged nosing from his little red who still had the shell in her mouth, S’nis tentatively smiled and shook the stranger’s hand.

Tresrissa. Tressie. There was no way on Pern he would feel comfortable calling her such a familiar name, having just met her, but the gesture did help him relax somewhat. Breathe a little easier.

He glanced at the wher which in turn brought Masath’s attention to it. The green was like... the perfect size to play with! Masath trilled her pleasure and bounced at the wher, flaring her wings some in a gesture to indicate she very much wanted to play. Clearly not able to read the wher’s body language to the contrary.

When that didn’t seem to prompt any response, or not a desired one, Masath just walked forward and plopped her shiny shell on the wher’s nose.  All before S’nis could stop her. “Ah, Masath, stooo....” He panicked, grabbing at her dark red wings. Not that he really stopped her. Just managed to pull her back somewhat. He’d seen wher bite people that got too close. Not that he wanted to say that out loud and somehow offend Tresrissa. Instead, worried about the entire situation, he rambled an apology. “I’m so sorry, she doesn’t... she’s never met a wher... and...”

Why are you upset? I didn’t hurt the thing, she huffed at him, sitting on her haunches while peering up at Tresrissa with bright green eyes. Ignoring her panicking bonded.

Tressisk tensed as the dragon approached, ready to do whatever was necessary if the red got too close to her Tressie. What she would do if the red did indeed get close, was still up in their air, but she wouldn't be afraid to take her on if need be.

Instead, she froze, with the shell on her nose forcing both eyes to cross as she tried to keep her gaze upon the thing, trying to figure out what on Pern was going on. But luckily, the wher didn't seem to be taking Masath as too much of a threat, and even Tresrissa's shoulders had tightened a bit when the red had approached. Not that Tressie really ever considered being hurt by a dragon, but she knew her wher's temperament, she wasn't going to underestimate the green.

The sight of the grown man trying to grab his slippery dragon by hers wings made Tresrissa laughed out loud. A beautiful tinkling kind of sound. Of course, why wouldn't Tressie have a beautiful laugh just like everything else? Her hand waved in the air, as if pushing aside a physical representation of his apology. "Don't worry about it. Tressisk is a tight wad, aren't you darling?" One hand snagged the shell off of Tressisk's nose, as the other went to the tight muscles of Tressisk's shoulder to reassure her.

It worked, the green's muscles untensing, before her snout went to nuzzle at Tressisk's hand, opening it to reveal the shell, mimicking Masath's earlier action. It was an amusing sight in all honestly. Where Masath's plonk of shell on snout had been purposeful and sure, Tressisk's was slow, hesitant, and completely unsure of how to play.

Strangely enough, Tresrissa felt a little... proud of her wher. Tressisk had always been nice to her family, and had somewhat played with her brother's children, and her younger cousins, but the green had always been so uptight around strangers.

Turning her eyes back to S'nis she giggled. "See? Masath is doing just perfectly." Those swirling green eyes were a little startling, so full of something that Tressie didn't quite understand.

Masath remained sitting if only so that S’nis wouldn’t fret overly much. He got so worked up and worried when she did things that were unexpected. Which was hard on the little Red because she could hardly tell him what she was going to do every time she was going to do something.

Simply impossible.

But she did sit still as the wher approached. S’nis watched as his sweet Red accepted the shell, then trilled and bounced in place. Obviously upsetting the placement of the shell, which she promptly picked up and put right back on the wher’s snout.

That did make S’nis smile. “You have a very… patient… and sweet wher, Tresrissa. She’s never gotten to… play?... with one before. Do you live in the weyr? It’d be… nice for her to get to play in the future.” It was probably the most S’nis had ever said in one breath, it someone he’d just met, but it he actually quite excited to see someone get along so well with his little Red and be sweet on her – or even just accepting of her actions.

Tressisk almost huffed in annoyance, but Tresrissa had been pushing soothing thoughts towards her wher since Masath had set her sights upon the green. She didn't know that this shell placement ordeal was supposed to continue. It had been her assumption that she'd... reciprocate, and then it would be over. She would be praised for her polite socialisation, and be allowed to take Tressie away from the strange pair. It frustrated her to misinterpret the rules of engagement.

Turning her eyes up to Tressie warily, she slowly took a step toward the Red, attempting to slide the shell from her shiny green snout, to Masath's wine coloured one, bumping their two snouts against each other. It was sweet, but quite probably not the type of play that Masath was looking for. From Tresrissa's independent observation, Masath seemed like more of the bouncy type, and might have the potential to get annoyed at Tressisk's uninitiated ways. They'd have to see.

Tressie smiled at the mostly honest assessment of Tressisk, most people at the Mine Hall were far too afraid of her parents to comment on the green's attitude, and it was... refreshing. She didn't notice that this sentence was significantly longer than what S'nis had been engaging in previously, because it didn't come across as unnatural to her at all.

Her pout however, was frightfully pretty. "Nope. I live over at the Hall, although I take what opportunities I can to come over to the Weyr." She lowered her voice conspiratorially, "It's much more interesting." Brightening up again, she continued. "But whenever I do make it over here, I'd love to come and talk to you again." A smile down at Masath included them both in the request... or was it an invitation?

Masath was delighted with the wher. She seemed utterly fascinated with Tressisk and, when the green moved toward her, she stopped bouncing so she could sit stone-still. It was oddly humorous watching her try so hard to be still so the wher could slip the shell on her nose, though the tips of her tail still twitched. Unable to be contained by her attempts to be still.

Once she shell was desposited, Masath once again bounced happily that they’d successfully transferred it. Upsetting the shell, but she happily picked it back up and plopped it back on Tressisk’s nose. Once successful, she trilled happily. Look! We are the best at this! It didn’t even matter what this was, she was just happy to be doing it.

S’nis found himself quite drawn to Tressrissa. She was very easy to talk to and the sweet way both her and her wher were dealing with Masath was… nice. This was really the first time he’d gotten to interact with someone other than a weyrling and it was really refreshing. He’d been so worried it’d be bad but here, Masath was having fun and it was sort of infectious. S’nis wasn’t about to go bouncing around, but a smile tugged at the corner of his mouth. Especially when Tressrissa pouted.

When she said she’d love to come talk to them, he found himself oddly hopeful. See! People can be nice. she said, not smug, just delighted.

“It’d really be nice to get to see you two again. If your wher could stand us,” S’nis said, glancing down at Tressisk before a real, small smile crossed his face. He didn’t want to put them out, of course, but it would be something nice to look forward to.

"Good." Tressie said brightly, her smile widening at the look of his smile. Well that was just cute wasn't it? S'nis should smile more. After all, with a dragon like Masath, he surely had a lot to smile about.

She waved a hand nonchalantly in the air, dismissing his worry. "Tressisk could stand to have a little bit more fun. I tried for turns, but if Masath wants to take it on, she's welcome to try." The green wher was loyal to boot, but it meant she took things entirely too seriously, if she saw a dragon of all creatures, being able to let loose and have a little fun, surely Tressisk could as well. Tressie didn't however, consider the idea that Masath, despite her size, was young, and Tressisk had turns more experienced to be jaded by the world.

"I'll just tell Ma and Pa that I've made a friend I want to see." They didn't have to know that said friend was a red dragonrider. It wasn't precisely a lie, Tressie never lied to her parents, she just sometimes... omitted information that might hurt their feelings. And if they asked, she'd say she was meeting that sweet kitchen girl she'd met when Tressie had slipped in for a morning snack. That wouldn't be a lie either.

"So." She said brightly. "I've got some marks just waiting to be spent. Have you had a look at any of the other booths?"

The very idea that Masath might have more time to try and play with a wher already had the Red looking forward to seeing them again. New friends and playmates were always welcome to her. Especially if they were going to be nice to S’nis. The little Red waited as patiently as she might for Tressisk to continue the shell game they had just made up. It didn’t matter that it wasn’t a real game or that there didn’t seem to be any sense to it. She was having fun.

S’nis looked around as though realizing there were other booths for the first time. Of course he’d known there were others but they’d seemed... social things. Booths people cluttered around, laughing with friends and the like. S’nis didn’t want either him or Masath to be in the way. To answer, he smiled a little, a tad sheepish, before he answered, “Ah. No. I... Well. I’d not wanted to be in the way.”

That and he knew there was a booth with knives and he would be keeping that one quite far from him. S'nis wanted no part of anything sharp near him.
