Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
2.2591 0A.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 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.

Tagging Along [ 03.09.2590 / 12 PM ] || K’eeda & Thiis

S’bel could not be more grateful to K’eeda. Prior, he’d more or less resigned himself to sticking to the edge of the Gather, maybe finding a comfortable place to sit where he’d be out of the way and just watching everyone else have fun. He couldn’t move very fast, with his weak leg and his cumbersome crutches, and getting in everyone else’s path didn’t sound like his idea of a good time. Rather, the Blue rider felt distinctly like a broken thing despite his dragon’s reassurances of, You aren’t broken, S’bel.

So when the other rider had decided in her not-to-be-argued-with fashion that he was going to accompany her around the Gather with K’rez, he’d felt a sense of relief. Having K’eeda by his side instantly made S’bel feel like less of a burden; and if anyone thought he was, he knew his friend would argue the case for him that he had just as much right to enjoy the day as anyone else.

It made him feel more at ease than he had in a long time. And though he couldn’t go anywhere quickly, and knew that he probably wouldn’t be able to last all day moving among the crowds and booths, getting to spend some time among so many other people was good for him. K’eeda had even all but demanded that he get his face painted, so now he had swirling marks on his skin that looked like ocean waves, matching the cloud of four blue flits that swirled along behind him like mother hens. And though he’d felt silly doing so, he also had a small but shiny shell from the Fishers, tucked safely away in a pocket so he wouldn’t drop it, and a very welcome reminder that all of this had been real.


Though he hadn’t said anything, K’eeda’s notice also hadn’t overlooked when his leg had started to almost drag along with his steps, and had simply directed him to the place where the Farmers were divvying out food to the Gather-goers. “Go get us something to eat. S’bel and I will find a place to sit.”

Simple as that. They even managed to find a table slightly out of the way where S’bel could stretch out his leg some and his crutches wouldn’t be in the way.

Too big to really participate in the festivities, Rilraneth had taken up a place outside their sick weyr in the sun and grass, letting his wings fan out, relaxed and easy. Concerned, though, he crooned to his rider, Are you doing okay?

S’bel summoned a smile for K’eeda and Rilraneth both. //I’m alright. I just hurt.// Out loud, he said, “I might have to rest after lunch.”

He was loathe to part from it all… but he knew well enough that he probably would have to.

Spoiler for OOC:
@SanctifiedSavage Let me know if I need to alter anything. I powerplayed K’eeda just a tad to get them there, along the lines of what we’d discussed for the Gather.

@Inki Sanctified’s post in the OOC check-in said that she’d be wandering around with K’rez too, so I included him just a bit.  I know you’re a bit swamped at the moment, so if you want to skip this one or just jump in with him later, feel free. <3 Again, if I need to edit anything, let me know.

@laceface I think I remembered right that Thiis would be done with her shift at 12 PM, but if I need to change it to 1 PM I can.

Injured on 28.8.2589. S'bel's left leg was crushed. Rilraneth suffered bites on his neck and a broken left wing.

Thiis had been collecting marks all morning, setting them aside in a little pouch under the stall she was stationed at. Anyone wanting a plate of food had to come to her first, where they would pass over a mark, and she would pass back a plate. It wasn't the most sophisticated system, but it worked, and that was the important part.

She normally didn't find herself in the company of so many different people in her kitchens work. Usually, she was in the back doing the cooking, not out helping to pass out the food or collect the dishes. But today, she had asked to be on morning duty, provided O'sir didn't have any plans for the Candidates, and she had gotten approval from both him and the headwoman.

She greeted everyone warmly and passed them a plate with a smile, asking what their favorite booth was and telling them to come back for dinner when the kitchens restocked the food with fresh bread and warm rolls.

"Hey, your time's up," a voice behind her said. Thiis turned to see another kitchen worker waiting to take her place.

"Oh, thank you!" she replied, handing the worker one of her fifteen marks. "I'll take my plate for lunch now." The worker laughed and put the mark in the pouch, handing her a plate.

"Enjoy the gather."

Thiis waved and walked back to the tables of food, piling it with a sampling of everything before wandering back to the tables to sit down and eat. She was about to sit alone before she saw the familiar face of S'bel. She waved at him, trying to catch his attention. He was with someone though... She walked up to them carefully, smiling shyly. "Do you mind if I sit here?"

"3 marks, 3 plates, please."

They looked at him slightly questioningly, maybe along the lines of 'What made you the drudge today? Can you carry them all? I'm definitely going to laugh if you drop them.' But K'rez didn't care.

It was good to see S'bel out and about, the two were mostly friends by association with K'eeda, although that wasn't unusual. K'rez was friends with most people either by association with his wing, or by K'eeda. It was easier for him that was to be sure.

The gather had been going mightily well so far. Keeping an eye out for those in his Wing, he noticed most, if not all, had taken his, Z'tai's and Halirina's words to heart, and were attending and enjoying the gather. Making a good impression it seemed, but also, just making time for themselves for once. It was certainly going to be a boost for morale... if nothing went wrong that was.

The plates were piled quite reasonably, so he didn't think that K'eeda or S'bel would have anything to complain about it. He spotted them easily, although this time they did have a guest in their midst.

"Hello." He said simply, nodding to her as he stepped forward and past her to pass the plates out to the others and taking his own seat.

It’d been a long time since K’eeda had a day off that didn’t entail her being pregnant. Too long, really. This whole Gather business had seemed silly at first, until she thought about S’bel and her own kids. While both Kassien and Kaija were clearly too young to attend, being little more than babes – or still a new born – Kathed was now able to run around.

And run he did. The little boy was beside himself getting to attend with his mother, father, and S’bel. K’eeda wasn’t really one to keep a tight leash on the boy either, so she let him frolic about and spent nearly all her marks on either him or S’bel, insisting that both play the fishing game. Several times when it came to Kathed. He thought it was delightful magic when to managed to ‘fish’ out a couple of pretty shells, one he gifted to her, another to his dad, another he gave to a girl he thought was pretty who was crying at the stall, and the fourth he kept to himself.

Of course S’bel had to fish too. K’eeda’s cheeks were beginning to hurt from all the laughing and smiling she was doing. And while she wasn’t keeping the keenest eye on Kathed, she knew that K’rez wouldn’t let the little boy get into too much trouble. After getting everyone panted up – herself and K’rez included – it had only seemed about that time to settle for some lunch.

Kathed, for all his excitement thus far, promptly fell asleep next to the table. K’eeda was certain, after the short nap, he’d be ready to go again. All in all, the beginning of the day had really been... well, definitely not the norm. With S’bel seated, Kathed dozing in the grass splayed out with no care in the world, K’eeda found she really was smiling so much it hurt.

She glanced at S’bel when he said he might have to rest after lunch. K’eeda shrugged a shoulder as she took a seat on the top of the table, resting her feet on the benched seat, as she watched her fellow Blue Rider. “If you think you need to sit a bit longer, that’s fine too. I think we have some marks left over between all of us we can drag you over to the Runner races and you can make some bets while you relax,” she suggested just as one of S’bel’s little friends wandered over. For that, K’eeda glanced at the girl and reflexively looked her over. Just a thing K’eeda did.

Not too bad on the eyes. “Mm, sit,” she answered for S’bel, before he thought better of it. “Was just talking about heading over to the runners. Have you seen them yet?”

Seeing K’rez wander over with three balanced plates immediately distracted K’eeda though. She slid off the table so he could easily pass them out, absently coming her hands through his hair but she didn’t sit. Instead, she picked up some dried fruit from hers and popped in her mouth. “Thanks,” she said, mouth full, before gesturing toward S’bel with another piece of dried sweetness. “I think we’ll drag S’bel toward the Runners after this. Then you can dance with me there, hm?” There was no way K’eeda wasn’t dancing with K’rez. She didn’t have to be next to the Harpers to do it.

She thanked the other woman quietly, slipping into a seat on the side of S'bel not occupied by his leg. She took in S'bel's face painting and the crowd of blue flits around his face and chuckled. "I sense a theme here," she said, motioning at all the blue around his person. "It suits you."

She flushed under the woman's gaze but answered her easily, doing her best to take it in stride. "No, I've been working the booth all morning," Thiis responded, waving back at the food stall. "I have time to try the other booths now. I've never seen the runners in a race before. I'd love to join you if you'll have me."

She stuffed a meatroll in her mouth as another man came up to join them. She nodded back at him, almost apologizing for being unable to speak. "I'm Thiis," she added after swallowing, smiling at the other two at the table. She assumed they were also riders, but she didn't want to jump to conclusions. "I helped to fix the food today, actually. I hope you enjoy."

It would have been easy for K’eeda to just leave him to his own devices; after all, S’bel was sure most wouldn’t have wanted to leave the Gather early or wait for him as his pace slowed -- especially given the energy with which her oldest child had taken to the festivities. But she was nothing if not a good friend, as casual as you please as she suggested they visit the runners next. There would be seating where he could further rest, and the idea of betting on something for fun sounded nice. So it was sunnily that he smiled at her, unsure how to ever express just how grateful he was. “I would like that.”

Their conversation was interrupted, though, by the appearance of a familiar face. Thiis had been nice to him the few times they’d interacted, though it did surprise him she wasn’t sitting with family or friends. Maybe they were working at other booths? Either way, he didn’t particularly mind if she wanted to sit at their table.

K’eeda beat him to saying so, though, so he just scooted his crutches over so that there would be more room in the remaining part of the bench. Smiling some, he greeted her politely: “Hey. Having a good Gather?”

His attention did get snagged easily when K’rez returned with the food. “Thanks, K’rez.” Dragging himself around on his crutches worked up quite an appetite in him, so S’bel was happy enough to dig into the food. He’d already accepted that the runners would be the place they were visiting next, and he didn’t expect the Brown rider to argue the point, so they hardly needed his input while he began sampling all that was on his plate.

At Thiis’ comment about the blue paint, he did pause to answer after swallowing. “I have to match the flits and Rilraneth, of course. I’m not sure they’d speak to me again if I chose another color.”

“The food’s great,” he added, before promptly stuffing a bit of bread into his mouth. S’bel was always the sort to go with the flow. If K’eeda decided to include Thiis in their little party, or the Candidate followed them over there -- or not -- he didn’t mind either way.

Whilst Thiis was engaged in some sort of conversation with the other two, he took a brief look over her, and shrugged slightly when she accepted the partial invitation to join them. Whether someone else joined them didn't really matter to him, he already was socialising, whether they added another person wouldn't add overly to his discomfort. Candidate or Weyrfolk? She seemed familiar. And it irked him that he couldn't recall her role, and with the lack of supplies for everyone to have some sort of rank knot, her status was indeterminable.

He smiled at K'eeda's order that he would dance with her. "Think perhaps dancing might be better with music? Or is that just a minor detail?" K'rez wouldn't ultimately wouldn't deny her the dancing, after all, he was allowed to indulge in his off time, but he liked to rile her up a bit sometimes.

Finally able to take his first bite of the food, he agreed with S'bel about the greatness of the food. It was always nice to see the Weyr come together like this. Even seeing the Holders out and about was a nice reminder of the gather's they'd read in the harper histories. Whilst now it was the Weyr hosting the celebration, and in the past it was Holds who had done the duty, with the lack of a Hold, he supposed this would do.

K’eeda paid the newcomer – Thiis – no other concern. Another addition to the flock that was their group wasn’t any big deal to her. Today was about socializing, after all. Later on, after the kids were tucked away and S’bel was safely deposited in his own room, K’eeda could have K’rez all to herself. For the moment, she was in family mode. When the girl said she’d join them, K’eeda nodded a little more and glanced in the direction of the runners.

She was surprised to find she was pleased to see the animals out and about, actually racing. Had they actually seen them race in... ages? Turns? Preserving the creatures had always been vaguely important to the crafters, though K’eeda couldn’t really understand why. Getting to appreciate all their hard work in such a way now, to see the runners turned loose to do as their name suggested, was actually quite a sight. Sleek and beautiful in a way dragons just weren’t, K’eeda watched from a distance before she walked over to her napping boy. Crouching next to Kathed, she nudged him to wake with a hand on his shoulder.

The little boy promptly sat up, grinned up at her, and bounced over to the table. Furiously hungry, Kathed attacked K’eeda’s plate. His mother chuckled a little, snatching a bite of meat and a roll from her own plate before in was soon to vanish to her son. “He seems to think the food is great, hm?”

Surrendering her plate to her son, K’eeda slid on K’rez’s lap to pick at what he had remaining on his own plate. “I don’t need music to dance,” she finally answered, smirking a little. “And if it embarrasses you in front of your fellow Wingmates to stumble around with me to no music, all the better.” While the sound of the Harper’s song did drift somewhat over to them, it was frequently lost to the sound of conversation and runners.

Not that it would stop K’eeda one bit. “I’m sure your son will want to dance with you too,” she added playfully, to which Kathed immediately cheered his agreement. That was going to be quite a sight for K’eeda, who grinned at K’rez.
