Guest Info Plot & Events


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.

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

Whers are like pokemon, right? [6.19pm//12.09.2590]
« on: January 07, 2018, 02:52:27 AM »
Kyareena had spent the last few days jumping between thinking it surprising that Kyarsk was choosing to spend so much time with her newly clutched eggs, and then reminding herself that it made complete sense for the regal, decisive Gold. It got her out of ‘work’ so to speak, which was usually how the Gold preferred to spend her days anyway, she just had a better reason to do so now.

The Gold would spend the morning sunning herself just outside the hatching cavern, before spending almost the whole of the rest of the day inside the cavern with her eggs. Perhaps it would only be like this for the first few weeks until she grew bored? Perhaps she was just a far more dedicated mother than Kyareena gave her credit for, given the girl had so very little mothering instinct of her own. Perhaps it was all a clever ruse to get away from the young flits that had annoyed Kyarsk all throughout her pregnancy and almost got in real trouble during her hatching.

Either way, it meant that Kyareena visited the clutching cave every few hours just to check on everything, and to see if anyone had come to see the eggs. She couldn’t spend all day there like her Gold, she still had chores and an apprenticeship, but she didn’t quite feel comfortable leaving Kyarsk there all alone.

It was weird for Kyareena. Given that Kyarsk stood almost as tall as she did, the Gold had a certain presence that made Kya feel… cold… from lack of having the wher right beside her. Last night she’d slept with the Gold just at the edge of the cavern because she’d felt so strange in the weyr alone. The flits had sensed it, she’d guessed. All four of them sticking closer to her than usual in place of the Gold’s imitating presence. It wasn’t the same, but it was a nice gesture regardless. 

It was towards the end of the day, after chores were done, that she grabbed dinner from the kitchens and headed towards the hatching cavern to see Kyarsk. Sitting cross legged on the ground, Kyarsk’s head on her lap, Kya watched over the still soft eggs. 11, 11 for her first clutch, only a week sitting on the sands.

When Kyareena had told her that her wher was going to clutch soon, Tia couldn’t help but be excited. She’d never really been friends with anyone that had a wher before; both of her parents were dragon riders, and while they might know some handlers, she didn’t. And she was hardly going to come across other children who had any. She’d heard that Holder children sometimes bonded to them before they turned twelve, but that wasn’t typical for the Weyr at all.

Anyway, she was eager to get a chance to actually see a wher clutch. Tianaice had seen dragon eggs from afar a few times, on the rare occasion that children as young as her were allowed to peer into the Sands to catch a glimpse of them. That, and the few times her father or mother had taken her to watch a Hatching -- though that had ceased when the events started turning deadly.

Shy as she was, she was a bit nervous just about asking Kyareena to see the eggs. And Tia knew too that the Queen wher herself might refuse. Kyarsk was nice enough to her, but Golds were notoriously protective of their babies. She wouldn’t be offended, but disappointed? Sure.

More than that, she was nervous because there was something else she wanted to ask the Farmer too. Though she wasn’t given to anxious fidgeting normally, Tia’s hands twisted the fabric of her shirt as she made her way toward where the wher caverns were. Twist, release. Twist, release. As though she could somehow work out all the worry and mingled excitement by squeezing it out of the cloth.

Tia had always known she wanted to be either a dragon rider or a Farmer. Following in her parents’ footsteps was an idea she liked very much… but the thought of working with plants and crops all day did too. And she couldn’t have both. A person couldn’t bond to both a wher and a dragon, couldn’t be a rider and a Crafter too.

If they could, that was what she would choose.

But young as she was, Tianaice was precocious too. And she’d been doing a lot of soul searching in the past several months. Was being a dragon rider something she could see herself doing? She’d been exposed to that all her life. She knew what it entailed. But the fact that Hatchings were dangerous now too, and that she’d have to face down the Hunters and Snakes day in and day out… Tia didn’t know if she was that brave.

She would, if that’s where life took her. But with her growing friendship with Kyareena, she’d learned more about the Farmers too -- less from afar and more directly. And the more she learned, even tangentially, the more she wanted to join them when she was old enough. Missing out on a dragon was sad, but this… felt right.

Supportive though they always were, she was still terrified that her parents would be disappointed in her if she wasn’t a dragon rider. Much of her trepidation had been in wondering what they would say. But they’d both told her it was okay, that there was nothing wrong with wanting to be a Crafter instead. So long as she was happy, so were they.

So this was something she wanted to try. And if either Kyareena or Kyarsk said no, then… there was always time, and other clutches. Maybe it would even be a relief to have the decision put off?

Soon enough, she arrived at the wher caverns and took a breath to steady herself. Tia wasn’t sure if Kyareena was there already or not, but she wanted to be at her best regardless. Squaring her posture and forcing her hands to be still at her sides -- after she’d smoothed the wrinkles from her shirt as much as possible, of course -- she peered past the doorway into the cavern. Tianaice knew better than to set foot somewhere where a brooding Gold resided without an invitation. Curled around her neck and shoulders, Sprout crooned some and bumped her nose reassuringly against her cheek.

Spying Kyareena, she did wave a bit and pitched her voice above a whisper so it would carry some. “Hello…”

Spoiler for OOC:
@RaynePOTM I made up a lot of shit, let me know if any of it needs altered.

@SanctifiedSavage Ditto for my mentions of C’ace and her mother, though I know we did already talk about it some.

Eyes flicking up from absentmindedly going over the eggs, Kyareena gave Tia a welcoming smile. “Hey ya,” she added happily before her brain ticked into gear. She wasn’t unhappy to see the girl that she’d taken under her wing. Not that Tia needed much help, she had a natural aptitude for the plants, Kya liked her, and it wasn’t often she could think of someone like ‘when I was your age.’ But Tia also didn’t have a lot of reason to be at the Wher Hatching Cavern.

Was she needed back at the Fields? Had something happened? Was she in trouble? For what? A small frown creased the young farmers forehead, as she mulled over all the reasons Tia could be there. Even if Tia hadn’t exactly hid her excitement about the wher clutch, thinking of the Farmers was always the first thing that jumped to Kya’s mind, the clutch was still very new in comparison. Plus, she was an apprentice still, if something needed to be done, they were always the ones who had to be there to do the dirty work.

“Umm, did you need me for something?” The young farmer asked as she pushed Kyarsk’s giant Gold head off her lap and rose. The flits scattered momentarily, realigning themselves after she was standing, either staying warm by Kyarsk, or picking pockets of Kyareena’s overalls to dig into. Heading over to where Tia stood at the entrance, Kya dusted off her legs and bottom. “I’ve finished all my chores,” she added, confused.

That Kya seemed confused why she was there made Tia bite her lip in hesitation. Granted, she supposed, there really wasn’t a reason for her to be at the cavern. Since she didn’t have a wher of her own, it wasn’t somewhere she had much occasion to go. Self-conscious, she tucked a lock of blonde hair behind her ear—not that it stayed there long when Sprout nosed at it and set it falling free again.

Being up front was probably best. “I was hoping you and Kyarsk would let me see the eggs.” It was one of the longer sentences the Farmer had probably heard her string together, but Tia had practiced it in her head to make sure it was right. Being disrespectful either to the woman or her Queen simply didn’t enter into the equation of how she wanted this encounter to go.

There were a lot of other things she could add: ’I’ve never seen a wher clutch up close.’ ‘Can I touch them once they’re firm enough?’ ‘Does Kyarsk know what will hatch from each one?’ Instead, still hovering in the doorway to avoid imposing herself upon their space if she wasn’t wanted, she waited for Kyareena’s response. Somehow it didn’t feel right to ask if she might be allowed to Impress to one of Kyarsk’s babies without knowing if she’d even be allowed close first.
