Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
5.2591 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.

Welcome!

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!

Registration?
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

Old flame, and all the trouble that comes with it
« on: August 04, 2018, 06:26:13 AM »

"Your temper's just as bad as mine is,
You're the same as me."


J'hal // Sr Weyrling // 24


About J'hal: J'hal is a blackriding Weyrling who Impressed at Kalestath and Neisoth's first clutch, so Lesserath is now not far off of graduating. Throughout candidacy he would have been a bit of a loose cannon with a big ol' chip on his shoulder, but Impressing Lesserath has given him a darn good reason to keep his mouth shut more often than not and suck it up, though the chip's still there. He's stubborn, untrusting and short-tempered, so hasn't made many friends in the last few turns.

He wasn't always as antagonistic as he's been at the Weyr. Though Weyrborn, he left for Fort Hold at the tender age of 8 on some dare or something and got sucked into a life at the bottom rung of society there. Right at the bottom, with a bunch of orphaned children and younger teenagers who got by mostly by stealing food and occasionally doing various errands for the gangs in the area when they needed someone invisible. But they looked out for each other, sharing what they had, and they were quick to take him in. It was here that he learned the importance of teamwork, trust, responsibility and loyalty. Though he could likely have joined any of the other, bigger gangs as he grew older as others in the group had, Jehal stuck with them and did what he could to keep supporting them, attempting two apprenticeships and a stint at candidacy at Fort, none of which worked out.

About Sayel: Probably the chief reason that Jehal stayed with his gang was Sayel, one of the other kids there who he'd grown very close with. Though at the time of meeting they were both too young to consider each other more than best friends, with age it developed into something deeper, more sexual... and more volatile.

Sayel was never a weak person, not emotionally. She couldn't have been, with the environment she had to survive in. With Jehal's temper, I imagine they would have clashed frequently, probably had very different opinions on things and what they should have done, but he at least admired that about her even if she found it infuriating about him. Other than spats like that, she'd probably have had him wound around her little finger, having more sway over him than he'd like to admit.

So he took it hard when she left them, left him, to marry some down-and-out Harper she'd 'fallen in love' with. He didn't believe a word of it. This happened shortly after J'hal was kicked from a second apprenticeship, so it probably had as much to do with his inability to hold down a proper job as it did any love they did or did not share. Chiefly, Sayel had unexpectedly fallen pregnant with their first child. She likely decided that any future she could share with Jehal would continue to be just as shit as it was currently and so hooked up with the first Crafter that would take her, because that had to be a better future for her baby than scrounging for scraps.

Wanted ICly: Obviously I want somebody else to pick up Sayel. This time I'd really like to see the tougher, bitchier, more manipulative side that I had imagined for her brought out more. The Sayel that survived a harsh life at a young age, that stood up to Jehal in the worst of his moods and fought back, that's determined to winkle her way back into J'hal's life for reasons of her own. I'd love it if it were for purely selfish reasons on her part, but I'd also love it if she really did still like him after all is said and done. After all, as a soon-to-be-dragonrider, he's finally in a position where he could actually support a Weyrmate, no longer a lost cause. Whatever the case (and that's up to you), she's decided he's worth pursuing once again. I'd really like to have her back in his life as a point of contention, a recurring source of trouble that he can neither fully hate nor ever truly love again. He wants to hate her for leaving without even telling him that she was carrying his child, but with all their shared history of companionship he can't help being drawn to her still.

Wanted OOCly: My vision for this Sayel and their past interactions is heavily inspired by the lyrics of this song, which I hold a guilty love for, except with less lies and violence than the song insinuates.

J'hal isn't looking to allow Sayel back into his life, in fact he'd really rather never see her again at this point. He's settling into his life as a weyrling and soon to be rider, he's even found another person that he thinks he'd like to settle down with. He's nursed a lot of hurt bordering on hatred for the past few turns after all and thinking of her brings back unpleasant memories. And some nicer ones. It's impossible to feel such pain if he never truly cared in the first place though, right? Right. And if Sayel knew him at all (which she did, very well), she'd know that he's vulnerable to her worming her way back into his life whether he wants her to or not. Particularly now that he knows that they have a child together, that one hit him hard in the feels since he'd had no idea.

I do want to make it clear, though, in that I can't see them ever ending up together peacefully and permanently again. Not least because J'hal has a thing for Haithen that I'm still keen on pursuing, but anyone who knows J'hal also knows that I like heaping trouble on the poor boy's shoulders, because simple isn't fun. I'm not looking for a happy ending in their story, maybe more of an uneasy truce, if it ever settles enough to define.

I'm happy to discuss, if you have any ideas that may have been inspired by all that messy rambling above, on where you might like to take this or what changes you would like to make to her character.

The adoptable can be found here, the original wanted ad here in case you're curious, and the two threads they had together so far here and here if you really have too much time on your hands.
