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.

This is the welcome party [ 7.4.2591 / 12PM ] Weyr Leadership
« on: August 08, 2018, 08:55:47 PM »
Gold flights besides Kalestath’s were always a bothersome thing to Halirina. While she did opt to spend some time with S’bok, as part of some peace between the pair of them, she wanted to be dressed and clean to see who might be the winner. She actually hoped it’d be an older Rider. Y’vis, maybe.

When quite the opposite happened, Halirina had quietly contained her fury. She didn’t want her outburst to upset S’bok, who might think it a reflection of her thoughts on him. In a way, it certainly was. What was happening in the Weyr?! Halirina stood at the weyrbowl entrance to the hatching sands and just... stared up at the sky in outraged disbelief.

A dark part of her heart even wanted the Bronze to fight the Black in the Weyrbowl, but Kalestath’s sharp presence in her mind reminded her that if it escalated, they would intervene. Kalestath would never dare to take wing during another Queen’s flight, but she would snuff the fight out of the two males.

Thankfully, it wasn’t needed. Instead, Halirina stormed off to her office so she could prepare. Once in her office, she threw everything in there in a spectacular tantrum. They had come so far and survived so much and it felt like the planet was trying to destroy them at every turn. Fevers, lost rations, riots... Now inept leaders.

The only reason they’d survived the Pass had been through the strength and conviction of their Riders and duty to one another. What would they do if the Weyr tore itself apart?

In this, even Kalestath was quiet. She would always stand by her mate, but the Gold didn’t care what color they were. Neisoth was just as good as Leremith, because he had won her Flight. The Queen did understand the stress and frustration of her bonded though, and in that conflict, she could offer nothing but quiet, stalwart support. They’d survived the Pass, they would survive the Interval.

In the end, Halirina sat in her office, in the quiet, until Kalestath let her know the Flight was over and the leadership would be ready to meet.

//Let’s meet in S’bok’s office,// she said, glancing around at the mess she’d made. Something else to deal with later as she stood, feeling her age, and made the short walk there. Arriving first didn’t surprise her, of course, so she stood next to S’bok and waited for the others. The office door stood open, welcoming, despite the very opposite mood of Halirina. She at least schooled her expression to betray nothing.

Z’tai always enjoyed Gold Flights. It didn’t matter to him that they hadn’t won one since moving south because he truly enjoyed being Prairie’s Wingleader. His time and effort were best spent with Prairie Wing rather than what he would be doing as a Weyrsecond. He participated to play his part in the Weyr and offer themselves as one of the strong competitors to see who would be best fit to catch a Queen and help lead the Weyr (regardless of the fact that they don’t have a choice when a Gold Flies). If it ended up that they won, then so be it.

Of course, Jenrath was always trying to win. The dark bronze was a fierce challenger, and it was a matter of pride for him to win one of the Queens again. Each Flight was given equal effort beyond one hundred percent. He wanted to win each time, to be the partner to a Queen again.

Each time they failed to catch one of the Golds over the past Two Turns, Z’tai would spend the day or evening with a bed partner without a shred of worry or regret. Jenrath would spend the day or evening brooding in their weyr. It was a routine that Z’tai had come to accept, since no words from him seemed to soothe the large beast after a loss until a few days had passed.

This time, Jenrath had dared for more hope. The last win by a brown had been an accident, either by the way the Flight ran or his lack of focus. This time, he saw only a handful of bronze competitors that he had to outmaneuver. The Senior Queen obviously favored the black Neisoth, he’d come to accept that, as Oriath favored Leremith. But Imyth…she was still flexible with whom she chose, truly letting the strongest claim her. He’d thought this would be he chance. And when a young, untrained black dragon swooped into take her before the others could, it took every ounce of Z’tai’s strength to call Jenrath back to their weyr in the bronze’s fury.

Neither Z’tai nor Jenrath held any ill will toward the black dragons. They were a response to the changing times and proof that they were all adapting to this new life they’d chosen. It was harder for Jenrath to accept that the blacks seemed to compete evenly, if not a bit moreso, with the bronzes, but it would certainly be better to have stronger dragons appear to help fight the Hunters than weaker ones. It wasn’t that Imyth’s new mate was one of the new colors.

It was the fact that this was a weyrling, inexperienced in true dragon rider and Weyr life and protocols. How could he make decisions for the Weyr when he was still practicing communication and maneuvers with his dragon? What did he know of Thread or the Pass that they’d all just survived?

After Z’tai had rolled from his bedsheets with one of his more regular companions, he’d gone to his office to look for any notes on the new Weyrsecond. He took notes on most weyrlings expecting to graduate soon, so surely he had something on this one that would remind him of age and temperament. It is time for us to meet with the others. The brooding bronze reminded him. The Weyrleader’s office, he added. The Prairie Wingleader sighed, marked his spot in his notes for later, and made his way through the intricate, cavernous hallways until he found himself stepping into S’bok’s office. He greeted the Senior Weyrwoman with a nod and a smile. “Guess it’s too much to ask Faranth for a dull Turn for once,” he joked lightheartedly, trying to set a lighter tone for what he felt might be a tense ‘welcome’ for the new Weyrsecond.

O’sir had nothing specifically against the young Black riders. As divisive as the new colors’ appearance in the Weyr had been, he did not feel a particular ill will toward them. He’d adapted as quickly as he had to, considering his position, and had never spoken out against the Reds and Blacks. What kind of message would that send to the Candidates, if the man preparing them for Impression did not feel they were worthy if they bonded to a peculiar dragon?

His only real complaint was the violence that frequently accompanied their appearance on the Hatching Sands. But dragonets were unpredictable until they found their rider anyway. There had been maulings before, just never on the scale that the last few clutches had delivered.

On a more personal note, however… he privately worried about what T’veck’s win would mean for the Weyr. Perhaps the man had matured since their last interaction, but O’sir couldn’t help but remember the unstable outbursts he and D’zel had witnessed in the past. The sheer selfishness and immaturity that had necessitated rather extreme actions from them both.

That was two turns ago, Saibrasoth had reminded him gently. The Brown didn’t even remember it, his only recollections now filtered through O’sir’s memory instead of his own. He’s been through all of weyrling training since then.

Saibrasoth paused, and then added, Well. Almost all. The fact that T’veck had not graduated could not be ignored. Even if he had matured and improved as a rider, he was still inexperienced. Much as S’bok had been when Neisoth had first caught Kalestath.

That more than one Black dragon had succeeded in catching a Gold so quickly after maturity had undeniable implications, though it wasn’t O’sir’s job to puzzle out what they were. But no longer could their opponents really say that it was a fluke. Particularly not after Jungle Wing had elected to participate in Imyth’s Flight this turn after X’kis had won the previous one.

He arrived soon after the summons from the Weyrleadership, since he had been expecting it. As he entered the Weyrleader’s office, he inclined his head respectfully to those already gathered. “Good afternoon.”

Every turn, it was a new surprise. His worry aside, M’rek couldn’t help but be a little amused. Each time they tried for something a little more standard, a little more normal, Pern seemed determined to thwart it all. Last turn it had been X’kis. This turn it was another Black rider, under similar circumstances through which Neisoth had come to power. What would it be next time? A Blue?

K’eeda would certainly be thrilled at that.

You seem remarkably light about this disaster. Polanth, in his own mind, had been so close to claiming Imyth for himself. That the younger, less experienced Baleth had been the one to take her had left him sour, seething even long after the Flight had ended. Now, as he dropped M’rek outside the entrance to the Weyr tunnels, his eyes were still tinged with red. Spreading his wide wings, he left again as soon as his rider had disembarked. Need I remind you this is not how things should be?

//Nature does change,// M’rek mused in return as he made his way to S’bok’s office. As angry as Polanth was, he didn’t feel the same. His dragon had always been more colorist and prejudicial than he was. //I’m sorry your pride is hurt, but this happened for a reason.//

Did it? The Bronze’s answer was clipped, a hissed accusation before he pulled away from their connection to brood and sulk.

M’rek just sighed. He did feel bad that Polanth was so upset. And he, personally, was worried about having yet another inexperienced rider in a position of such importance. But he had to maintain a sense of optimism. Otherwise, what was the point of it all?

A few others had already arrived by the time he got there. He greeted the higher ranked riders with all due respect. “Weyrleaders.” And he smiled briefly at Z’tai and O’sir before stepping aside to take up a place in the room while they waited for the others.

This would be an interesting meeting, if nothing else. He couldn’t even imagine how upset B’ron surely had to be.

B'ron had already finished smashing everything of use in the Weyr that he and Vanelwynne had shared, and so it stood to reason that the brand new ink pot he knew was sitting unsuspectingly on his desk in his office would have to sacrifice himself for the good of the Weyr.

Storming from the Weyr with not a word to Vanelwynne, he sought some new victims for his rage. Someone, and he knew not who, had evidently furnished his office with a few more breakable things/ An earthen pot with a barely grown sapling within it, found a new home splattered across the wall and floor of his office. The ink pot landed almost exactly where the last one had, a dark stain dripped steadily down the wall.

This. Cannot. Be. Happening.

Another fucking black. Another fucking black that hadn't even graduated yet. He was going to do something about it this time, they had to ban Weyrlings from chasing until after they were graduated, even if they wanted to fly. That'd be... that'd be... a good test of their control... Yeah! The ultimate test, to hold your dragon back from something they sharding well wanted to do but weren't supposed to.

I caught, Leremith paused to think for a moment. Dialuth the first time I chased, we hadn't graduated then.

"She was a sharding green!" He said both out loud and in his head to Leremith in his annoyance. And it was a different time then. We didn't wait so long to graduate Weyrlings cause we didn't have a choice. As soon as we were ready and mature they threw us out into thread. But they didn't throw us into leadership.

He had bided his sharding time, just like you were supposed to. Learning, bettering yourself, making your way up the ranks so that by the time your won leadership, you had already proved time and time again that you were worthy of the rank.

Ah. There it was. The summons to meet the new Weyrsecond. And just after he'd finally got X'kis to not be such a nuisance.

This wouldn't happen, as soon as the child was found to be wholly unsuited to the role, B'ron would somehow convince the rest of the leadership to have him ousted out of the role. They'd demoted D'mir, he could demote a child black. He just had to think of a way to do it without anyone noticing.

His face was nothing other than his usual stoic when he entered the room. Only those that knew him well would likely be looking for the hatred in his eyes and spotting it. But now they he had a plan he wasn't so... angry. Well, wasn't more angry than usual.

Although, it was more than likely Halirina would have some personal speculation when it came to how long it took them to arrive at the meeting She didn't say to hurry; all this bossing around not that her beloved gold was judging but she also didn't see any reason why not to add a lighter note to the whole business.

It was the kind of action that Eimerra had come to expect; not that she was any less pleased to find that this remained the case "Just remember, their bark is worse than their bite" she spoke gently, content to make one final comment before she walked in with her new weyrmate, the new weyrsecond and a weyrling and rider of a black dragon. As little as she liked the thought of such hypocrisy, Halirina was probably going to be one of the worst judges against the pair of them. And even though this might be nothing more than a single Turn, she wouldn't step back or away from the rider of the dragon who'd flown and claimed Imyth.

Eimerra waited for them to register their arrival; it had been difficult enough when she'd needed to do this with a brown rider, now with T'veck it was going to be far more challenging.

Despite Eimerra's solid presence (ally? Friend? At the very least neutral person) to count on he was a little more settled than when she had first mentioned that they would summon them. Which he  hadn't received come to think of it. Kalestath told me, but Imyth's rider had already told you. Baleth put in, his presence edging a little closer to normal than completely tired and besotted with Imyth.

He still took a deep breath and squared his shoulders as they neared the office, a soft burst of laughter his only response to Eimerras comment. It was an apt saying. What could they do but yell? The deed was done. Even if they refused him the position of Weyrsecond they couldn't undue that Baleth and Imyth would remain together.

Together... Oh. Shards.

Baleth picked his thought out of his mind and his amused rumble was very pleased with himself. Is it a bad thing that I might sire more black dragons? We are clearly superior.

He wondered if that thought had occurred to anyone else in this meeting. If it had he was not relishing the welcome he'd get from H'vier or B'ron, neither of them seem to like the new colours. He didn't know any of the other wingleaders to guess their thoughts on the matter. He certainly wasn't going to mention it just in case they hadn't yet thought of it.

“Weyrleaders.” he said with a polite bow once they had both entered. He would not be the first one to cause any problems.

W’sar wasn’t sure how he felt about the newest Weyrsecond, or what it all really meant. Obviously, things were changing. It wasn’t just the Holders and the Crafters who were adjusting to the island, and life on it, but even the dragons. He might be an old man and have a healthy respect for the way things were done before, the Black Dragons didn’t seem to be changing anything. They were just a new color in an old system.

What that really meant, W’sar didn’t know. Neither did he really care to think on it. Thus far, S’bok and he had been getting along well enough and his Wing wasn’t suffering for it. The Weyr would, ultimately, survive or die as a whole. It was in everyone’s best interest, even the Black Rider’s, to work together. W’sar wholly believed that the rest of the Weyrleadership believed that too.

It was the only thing that really made sense. Personal feelings aside.

He was one of the last to make it to the meeting, but his weyr was the farthest. It wasn’t that he was late, just a step behind Eimerra and the new Weyrsecond – who he did not know on sight. W’sar still took his place along the wall. He wouldn’t have much to contribute, but his presence was required, so he was there.

It would be Imyth and Eimerra. The woman seemed to have a habit of upsetting the weyr. There wasn’t a way this could be intentional, but at this particular moment in time, Halirina was content to settle blame on her. It didn’t have to make sense, she was just annoyed. She’d be reasonable later.

For now, with a pleased S’bok next to her, Halirina’s welcome was less than friendly. Though it wasn’t outright hostile, so that was an improvement. “Afternoon Eimerra. Welcome T’veck, and congratulations.”  Her tone lacked inflection and her expression was neutral. She might as well be congratulating someone for crossing the weyrbowl on foot. Then, she gestured to each as she introduced them, “M’rek, Wingleader of Beach. Z’tai, Wingleader of Prairie. H’vier, Wingleader of Jungle. W’sar, Wingleader of Mountain. I’m sure you already know S’bok. B’ron. Vanelwynne and myself. Everyone in this room’s ultimate duty is to ensure the prosperity of the weyr – our duty first and foremost is ensuring we all survive this Interval. So long as you keep that in mind, and do nothing that might jeopardize or otherwise conflict with that ideal, we should get along.” Halirina clasped her hands behind her back. “As Eimerra’s Weyrsecond... You’ll be working with Z’tai.” She couldn’t bring herself to say presiding over. The man hadn’t even graduated Weyrlinghood, how could he preside over anything?

She paused a moment to let that sink in, watching T’veck like a wherry might a tunnelsnake meal. “If you have any questions, concerns, or comments to make to the leadership, now would be a good time. We all don’t generally meet like this, as we’re a busy lot.”

Of all the Wings for T’veck to work with, he was perhaps lucky it was Z’tai. Beach required too much work and they were too vital if someone accidentally messed it all up and Jungle... The sheer idea that a weyrling might try and manage Jungle Wing was laughable. S’bok had struggled for the longest time and Halirina had to intervene frequently on his behalf, starting out. Z’tai would probably be... helpful.

Well, it wasn't outright hostility from the senior weyrwoman. That has to count for something. There's definitely no warmth there though. He wasn't truly expecting any - the only interaction he's had with her have been reprimands, which he's sure created a great impression. He can only hope that she recognises that he has grown and the bond between him and Baleth has settled a little, since then. He inclines his head to her congratulations, ignoring how stilted they might be, Eimerra had been absolutely spot on with that prediction.

He nodded politely at the various others as they were named. Beyond O'sir and D'zel he knew them only as far as knowing their names and their dragons, but that was about all. He'd never really had reason or opportunity to interact with any of them except M'rek and that had been a while back.

He studied them as Halirina continued speaking. Z'tai and W'sar didn't seem too upset, then again Prairie was rumoured to be laid back and Mountain was never around to care. H'vier he couldn't tell, but the assumption was likely not a fan given Jungle's usual opinion. B'ron was utterly blank which could mean any number of reactions and he'd prefer not to guess.

He almost slumped a little when she said he was to be working with Z'tai. He could just imagine how badly things would have been if Eimerra's mate had say, Jungle wing under him. Instead he keeps his back straight and nods again at Z'tai. “Wingleader.” As for the rest. “Of course, survival means we must work together, arguing amongst ourselves will get us nowhere.” He says that with a straight face and a polite smile despite wanting to smirk at the assembled riders. Take that anyone who's less than pleased at the flight. He can feel Baleth's rush of smug pride at that comment as he listens in and for once they're both in perfect agreement.

The Prairie Wingleader smiled and silently greeted each addition to the room as they entered. No one seemed to come into the room raving about another black dragon in Weyrleadership, or the actual pressing concern that it was a weyrling. He would have figured as much; this wasn’t the time or place to voice those opinions and they all knew that. It would likely be a straightforward meet and greet, go over any questions, and then return to everyone’s own responsibilities.

Once they were all in attendance, all attentions turned to the Senior Weyrwoman as she began to introduce them all. He nodded and smiled toward the new Weyrsecond as his name was mentioned, but remained silent through the remainder of her opening remarks. He’d been through this nearly every single Turn since coming to Fort Island and becoming Prairie’s Wingleader. Imyth was always changing her partners, unlike Oriath and Leremith, which led Z’tai to working with a different Weyrsecond each Turn as well.

Under normal circumstances, the change wasn’t as disruptive as it might sound. Most of the Weyrseconds he had worked with thus far had either previous experience as a Weyrsecond, or at least more than sufficient experience in a Wing and flying during the Pass with Thread that they all had the same goals and ideals in mind when it came to drills. Even X’kis, a brown rider from Mountain Wing, had been a smooth transition, proving that the color of one’s dragon didn’t mean much in terms of ability to hold Weyrleadership rank. But he had plenty of experience in dragonriding both during the Pass and Interval to understand the priorities of the Weyr based on where they’d been, and where they seemed inevitably to be going.

This, on the other hand, is not what Z’tai would classify as a normal circumstance. It would be interesting to see how this next Turn would follow, and he only hoped T’veck would take his new role seriously and with humility. There was still a lot for him to learn, both as a dragon rider as well as a Weyrsecond.

Z’tai focused on the young Weyrsecond as it was his turn to speak. What came next would be his first true memory of the man. This would give him a clearer idea of what to expect, at least when he was trying his best while around all of the Weyrleadership. His head tilted forward just enough to indicate acknowledgement of the man’s greeting, but didn’t interrupt when he continued. On the one hand, it sounded like he was agreeing with Halirina, but Z’tai wasn’t thrilled that he thought to call out the potential arguments between the Weyrleadership rather than focus on commenting on the Weyr as a whole.

It wasn’t the best first impression he’d had of someone, but that was all this was: a first impression. He’d see and learn far more when he and T’veck were speaking one-on-one. Z’tai pushed those thoughts aside for now, he’d have plenty of time to work them out later, and took a half step forward. “That’s good to hear,” he replied, a light expression on his face though he didn’t wear a smile this time. “Welcome to the Weyrleadership team,” he added, wanting to emphasize that they were all working together toward the same goal. Though their roles and responsibilities all differed, they had to still appear as a solid unit. “I look forward to working with you. We begin at five in the morning tomorrow.” He didn’t want to assume that the new Weyrsecond already knew of Prairie Wing’s schedule, even though he hadn’t asked. He would rather add that reminder to be sure T’veck would be there on time for his first official day in his new management role.

Re: This is the welcome party [ 7.4.2591 / 12PM ] Weyr Leadership

B'ron couldn't take it anymore. He was going to jump across the room and throttle the child, and while he was at it, throwing away everything he'd ever worked for, he'd decided to make short work of S'bok too.

He imagined: S'bok mysteriously disappearing on one of his Hunts, Neisoth's screech as he blinks between echoing throughout the Weyr. No one keening for his death. And B'ron once again in Halirina and Kalestath's Weyr. Or more simply. S'bok and T'veck and Eimerra lying dead on the floor of this office, the rest of this team walking from the room without looking back.

Both seemed so satisfying, and yet, he couldn't do either.

But he didn't have to stand here and listen to the child prattle on about them arguing between themselves. He shouldn't even be allowed to speak, let alone have any kind of opinion to argue upon. Who the fuck did he think he was? When would he have gotten the mistaken impression that any of them would give up their decorum just to bother to have an argument with someone the likes of him.

Runnershit of a child.

You're going to have to instruct him.

Not if I have anything to say about it. There was a reason why he'd made sure X'kis knew everything there was to know about the duty, he hadn't been disgraced from the office like D'mir had. It hadn't been tradition last turn, but it wasn't something unheard of. Usually the previous Weyrsecond didn't do the turnover if there was some kind of... tension. But B'ron didn't really care about whether or not X'kis would have any problems with the new child. It'd likely be less than his.

Call Maelboroth and get X'kis to meet him at the office.

"X'kis will meet you for handover after this meeting." He said, and that was all. B'ron had to stand here for a little while longer, if only to make sure he was present for everything and anything he wanted to screw up. B'ron would remember it all.
