Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
1.2591 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.

Southern Winds is a Mature Roleplay. This means we allow for sexual, violent content that would be found in a struggling, 9th Interval Pern.

Breakfast had been a disappointment. The klah had been lukewarm at best and had really put a downer on Renolus' day before he'd even got started. Yes, that was his reason why he had no real choice but to head out and find a quite place on the sands of the cover to just lie back and take a quick nap. Even if he'd just woken up, Renolus knew that nothing improved the mood quite like a nap. He was definitely missing the comfortable days of the warmer seasons, which was understandably prime napping weather, but Renolus was just grateful that he'd found a spot that was sheltered enough from the wind that it didn't cause a problem. He would take the difficulty of having to wear a thicker coat during his nap than rain making him retreat back inside to find somewhere.

He was kind of aware that it was probably already close to chore time - if not, indeed, already time for the worst part of the day - but as stated earlier, Renolus just had to have a little nap in order to recover from his bad morning. He'd be of no help in... Shards, he didn't even remember what chore assignment he had today... Oh well, he'd be of no help wherever he was supposed to be if he was exhausted and in a bad mood from the morning, would he? Yes, it was in everyone's best interests if he just stayed here for a little longer. And if he happened to nap through the majority of the chores, well, that was just a risk he was going to have to take.

As he lay there, already half dozing, hands behind his head in a sort of makeshift pillow and one leg crossed over the other, he hummed softly to himself. The teaching songs often ran through his mind when he was falling asleep, and it was the Harper in him that found himself humming them softly as he lay there content with his bit in the world and purposefully oblivious to the time passing.

Daysa was used to early mornings. Staying with M’kale didn’t really change anything – not schedule wise – so she was up early right alongside him. It worked out. She got to wake up with him, get carted off toward the kitchens to prep for breakfast, help serve it all, then she could make her way out toward the weyrbowl to tend to all the crops.

Now that the chill of winter was settling on the island, there wasn’t as much to take care of in the weyrbowl. Luckily, though, since they’d planted the bamboo it seemed to grow turn round. So there was always that to prune, rotate, and harvest. It grew so fast and it was tough to till. Sometimes Daysepona was utterly convinced the blasted stalks didn’t want to come out of the ground at all.

Moss and Guard, her two ever present flit shadows, weren’t much by way of help. Guard was too busy eyeing any one near her with some suspicion and Moss? The little green lady liked rolling about in the dirt and pretending to dig rather than actually digging.

Daysepona hoped one day she could actually teach them to be helpful.

She eventually become so focused in her weeding around a row of bamboo stalks that she hadn’t noticed Moss had flitted off until the Green impressed upon Daysepona that someone was also rolling about in the dirt. Or sands. The images she got from the flit were not always clear. Sometimes, like now, they were a jumbled mess of overlaying scenes as the flit was too excited to relay them proper.

Daysepona sighed as she stood, brushed her dirtied hands off on her simple, brown dress and went hunting for Moss.

Who happened to land, chittering, right on the candidate’s stomach. Why was he sleeping? She trilled, both to call Daysepona to her and to say ‘hello’ in her own, cheery way.

The weight on his stomach initially confused Renolus, and for a second he debated whether it was his breakfast or something, but no, there was a definite weight from the outside. He didn't much like having to pull himself out of his dozing state, being woken up was never a fun experience, and for a moment he was actually considering maybe just ignore whatever seemed to be sitting on him... Perhaps that was a bad idea, or perhaps sleeping was just that much more important that whatever was bothering him.

It was the trill that came next and through another problem at his decision. Not many things trilled. And a sound of trilling made Renolus all the more curious...

Hoping he wouldn't regret his decision, Renolus opened a single eyes, staring up at the green firelizard that was perched on his stomach. Well, that didn't happen everyday.

"Well, hello sweetheart. Where did you come from?" he asked, still with only one eye open as he surveyed the flit. He wasn't all that aware of anyone around, but he doubted this green was a wild one: somehow he couldn't imagine a wild firelizard deciding to just plop down onto a human, they tended to be too weary from what he'd seen. He could only hope that if it was a bonded firelizard, that the human bonded to it wasn't someone who was coming to scold him or report him to the Candidatemaster for being so innocently napping and kinda-oblivious to the time.

"You're more than welcome to just chill there, if you like, sweetie," he said, closing his eye again after deciding that returning to his nap was worth the risk of being caught. "Naps are healthy, you know. Keeps your hide all shiny and stuff. Probably."

It was through some confusing images and Guard trying to guide her that Daysepona eventually found her way away from the bamboo fields and toward the sandy cove. Not quite where it was dangerous, nowhere near where the fishers or the riders were hard at work already in the morning, but in a spot that was almost serene.

Save that someone was quite clearly slacking. Napping already when the morning had just begun.

That... wasn’t quite right, Daysepona supposed as she neared the prone individual. The morning had been going on for some time, with the sun stretching across the pale blue sky overhead. Though the chill of winter had settled over the island, it wasn’t really cold. Not like Fort Hold used to be.

Moss was quite happy with her find, trilling one more and bouncing a little more on the Candidate. What he said didn’t really mean anything to her. Daysepona had never napped since she’d bonded to the flit so the concept was utterly foreign to her. Rather, the young weyrfolk was quite the industrious worker.

“Moss, it’s impolite to bounce on people,” Daysepona huffed as she stood roughly out of arm’s reach. She wanted to scoop up the unruly flit but she also didn’t want to just... fall all over the stranger either. Though the weyr wasn’t all that big, Daysepona wasn’t what anyone would call social. She barely knew anyone’s name, let alone got out to call other’s by their name.

“Ah, pardon... Sorry she’s... doing... that.” Each word punctuated by the way Moss continued to do a little ‘dance’ on the Candidate. Why was this curious person laying in the dirt? Moss just didn’t understand.

Guard, ever the vigilant one, remained on the ground at Daysepona’s side. Watching his fellow flit with what could only be disdain. Moss was always flapping off, doing what she wasn’t supposed to. He snorted through his nose and sat on his haunches, wings faintly flared in irritation.

A random firelizard sitting on him was strange enough, but as it begun bouncing, Renolus felt just the slightest tinge of disappointment. Couldn't he have been found by a nice, sleepy firelizard who just wanted to curl up on something warm and snooze? That would be the ideal, and it was certainly the sort of firelizard that Renolus would prefer to have if he ever found himself luckily near a hatching clutch. "I'm going to hope the bouncing isn't implying something about the softness of my stomach," he sighed, though he said it quietly enough that it was more to himself than actively trying to talk to the green at this point.

The sound of another voice surprised him slightly, since the sound of the wind had masked any footsteps in the soft sand. 'Moss' was apparently the name of this green, and Renolus once again opened a single eye to peer up at the woman who she belonged to. He didn't move, even as Moss continued to bounce around and the woman seemed to struggle to get something out by way of an apology.

"Hey, she's not too heavy, so it's fine so long as she doesn't coax my breakfast back up," Renolus smirked up at the woman, not quite interested enough in the conversation to open his eyes properly yet, and thus shutting them again. "I'm just going to go ahead and think of it as a massage or something. Think you can teach her to do it on someone's back? I've got a knot in my shoulder that's begging to be bounced out."

Daysepona made vague shooing motions, like she could get Moss to just... fly off with some hand gestures. She really did need to teach her flits how to do what she wanted.

Moss was having none of it. Daysepona might as well have been shooing at the mountain for all the little Green was paying attention. Instead, she stopped bouncing and crawled up the candidate to peer at his face. He’d been opening his eye and looking around, but now they were closed once more. An action that had drawn the flit’s attention, enough that she lightly swatted at his nose. Trying to get him to do it again.

“Moss!” Daysepona scolded when she saw her flit just... bap him on the face. Politeness be damned. She strode forward with the intention to just pick the flit up, but Moss screeched and pushed off of the candidate’s face, taking flight to escape an irritated Daysepona, then went Between to escape her wrath. Just as Daysepona had tried to grab at Moss, who had flown up into her face to get away.

All of it ended up with Daysepona falling on the poor Candidate.

Guard, now angry that Daysepona was tangled up with a stranger, charged into the fray. He hissed and pounced onto the mess of people. Not helping at all, but trying to bite at the candidate.

“Guard, Guard! Quit it!” Daysepona cried out as she tried to push up off the stranger while, at the same time, grab ahold of the Bronze flit before he could actually bite the poor boy.

Spoiler for OOC:
She’s the best at flits. The absolute best. XD

Everything sort of happened rather fast after that, and it was very much the opposite of his idea of a nice peaceful time. The swat to his face made Renolus jump in surprise, but he'd only had time to scrunch up his face, not even open his eyes, before something else was happening. Something - Moss, he assumed - pushed from his face just in time for something larger, and far less comfortable than a firelizard to fall on top of him.

"Shards!" he yelped, eyes snapping open now as he realised the damned woman had landed straight on top of him. He gasped for air, the wind knocked out of him from her weight - not that she was heavy exactly, but any weight wasn't that pleasant when it fell on your chest as she had.

And then there was a flash of bronze. At this point, Renolus was at a loss for what was happening, and his automatic assumption was that some wherry-brained firelizard had jumped in to attack... someone. Without really thinking, Renolus' arm reached out to try and wrap around the woman, as if that would somehow keep her from the harm of the shockingly irritating bronze that kept flapping around his face. It didn't occur to him that the bronze might belong to her too, and instead he just kept swatting the air trying to hit it, especially once he felt a sharp pain running through his hand.

"The sharding thing bit me!" he cursed, trying to turn his head away to protect his eyes.

Really, this was the furthest thing from a nice peaceful nap now...

Why was it that everything seemed to go wrong once her flits got involved. Moss didn’t even have the decency to stay! She had Betweened when Daysepona had tried to grab ahold of her, then reappeared to hover over the mess of human and fire lizard, trilling and chirping to add to the noise.

Not helping.

And no matter how well meaning the poor boy might have been, grabbing ahold of Daysepona to save her from Guard only made the bronze flit more determined to save her. How dare this stranger put hands on his human! He was all screech and beating wings, trying to bite at him – succeeding once even! – while Daysepona was trying to stop him. Grabbing at his tail, his neck, whatever she could reach while trying not to further face plant on the Candidate.

All in all, she wasn’t helping much either.

“I’m so sorry!” she tried to say over Moss’ trilling and chirping and Guard’s screeching of challenge. While trying to grab ahold of Guard, she might’ve accidentally hit the poor boy too.

Flustered beyond measure and not sure what more she could do, Daysepona settled for just… trying to crawl away. Maybe that’d make Guard stop.

Quickly coming to the conclusion that this bronze was not the kind of bronze Renolus dreamt of having in the future, he batted a little wilder, if only to keep it at bay rather than actually hurt it. The woman kept scrambling on top of him, to the point where Renolus was at a loss for what she was actually trying to do. He heard her rushed apology through the sounds of the angry firelizard, and he heard another trill from somewhere up high that was oddly familiar.

He felt the claws and teeth of the snapping bronze, but there was a notable smack of a human hand now and then too that, whilst not having the same sting as the flit's attack, was still enough to remind Renolus that this was very much not his planned morning.

Cursing as he felt the woman trying to move, Renolus finally pulled his arms back, turning on the floor to try and roll onto his front - at least that would protect his face from any more attacks. He rather liked his face, and he'd prefer no real harm come to it.

"You know, there's a time and a place for crawling all over someone, and I'm pretty sure firelizards usually aren't involved!" he called back to the woman as he willed her off him quicker.

Moss remained above the fray she’s created, hovering and trilling her excitement. If only because it looked like fun. But she knew better to get involved in any fuss that Guard was apart of. The bronze didn’t know the meaning of fun.

True to form, Guard was not happy at all. As far as the bronze fire lizard was concerned, all of this was the boy’s fault. Not Moss’s, or Daysepona’s, but the flailing boy’s and he continued to snap and claw at him until his bonded had managed to crawl away from the entire mess. Only then did he relent and flap over to land at her side, eyes still red as he regarded the candidate not far off.

Daysepona rolled over on her back, staring up at the pale morning sky, faintly breathy. How... how had that even happened? Moss trilled and landed on Daysepona’s chest as though proud she’d not been apart of it all. Even if she might’ve been the cause.

When she heard what he had to say, Daysepona’s face colored more than it had already. “No, that’s.... I mean. I’m sorry. They’re... not the best behaved,” she stammered. Daysepona was already abysmal when it came to socializing so she had no idea how to react to this entire mess. An apology did not seem enough. After catching her breath a moment, she sat up and looked over at him. “Did... he hurt you?”

Wondering what he'd done this morning to deserve such a frenzy happening, Renolus prayed to be free of... well, any of them really. He was regretting not returning to his room to nap, and perhaps he would have to start doing that to avoid situations like this cropping up.

Finally, the woman crawled off him, and Renolus groaned as he was for the most part free of both her clambering and the firelizard clawing and biting at his face. He couldn't move initially, too exhausted in every possible way.

He turned his head to the side to stare at the woman as he lay beside him, amused at how flustered his words had made her. Too right too. She deserved it for all of that. "Really?" he said sarcastically. "And here I thought they would have received prizes for being sweet and listening to instructions..."

As she sat up, Renolus followed suit, pushing himself onto his knees and reaching up first to his hair to make sure it was alright, before he focused on the injuries he'd received. Naturally, none of them were more than scratches or bumps that would bruise, so he wasn't too concerned as he used his sleeve to wipe away a touch of blood on his cheek. "Don't worry about it, I've had worse," Renolus assured her, waving away any worry she might have. "And I mean, no offence, but I'd rather not have anymore help if that was your idea of helping out," he added with a teasing grin.
