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.

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

Your Reflection...

Appearance:
While Na'va has never really felt comfortable with the idea of uniforms before, she enjoys the individuality of rider's leathers. It might be because the Weyr doesn't have the resources to standardise the style, but she quite likes it regardless.

On the shorter side of average at 5'7", Na'va is probably more petite than curvy, although she would consider herself willowy either. She likes to wear her hair naturally, rather than spending the time trying to tame it, she can't blame it for not wanting to conform.

Resting bitch face is not a term that she finds offensive, in fact, it's quite accurate, and she's learned to enjoy the idea that people can only read one thing at first glance, because once they start to look at her more in depth they can read her like a book.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Na'va in all honesty barely survived the catastrophe. A series of bad turns and bad choices put her on a path that she didn't know how to get out of. She turned to escapism, and as a dealer she had ready access towards Passion Vine.

Response to dragon color mutations: Na'va thinks they're great. The reds are little attention seeking shits, and the blacks would rather eat you than be your friend. Both remind her of herself and really how much can she hate that?

Who are you...

Likes:
Darkness - She's one of those people who (perhaps a little ironically) like all those things that make other people go eww. Na'va is a fan of the dark, a fan of spiders, the wet, the mud, blood and guts and gore. But when she finds someone that shares her likes and dislikes she doesn't exactly enjoy that. It's not something she wants to share with other people.
Tea - Something she got to experience with her first consumption of drugs, but now she just enjoys the purest form of tea possible, in the few and far between when it comes into the kitchens.
Warm bodies - Na'va hates feeling body parts that are cold. Cold hands? Get that shit away from her. Her dragon is beautiful and warm, something she'll never get over.

Dislikes:
Overcrowding - She hates living with large amounts of other people, something she really didn't enjoy about candidacy. And is very looking forward to being able to have a place all to herself, she's never had that sense of ownership before.
Sunny days - Another thing that everyone else seems to be so happy about when a pleasant day comes along, so of course, Na'va has to be different and dislike them.
Peacekeepers - Especially the uniforms, brings back memories of old trauma.

Strengths:

* DECISIVE : Na'va isn't one to um and ah over something, especially if she thinks that's what someone wants her to do. She'd rather make a quick decision than "please" someone who was trying to test her.

* HARD WORKING : This is usually something that she lets everyone know she's doing for herself and herself alone. She's doing it because its what she wants to do, it makes her feel accomplished,

* INCORRUPTIBLE : A newer trait for her, but Na'va has experienced too much of the shitty side of the Hold life, she's not about to be turned back to drink and drugs and the memories of that part of her past.

* METHODICAL : There's something to be said for ticking off every box that she sets for herself. She enjoys lists and organisation.

* INTELLIGENT : She managed to trade some of her services for education, and it's certainly made her appreciate knowledge and the pursuit of it.

Weaknesses:

* EXPRESSIVE : Na'va has never been able to hide her expressions on her face. Her favourite, but her most unpopular expression, is the eye roll. It's got her many extra chore details in the past, but she simply can't help it, and it's usually worth it to hear "Did you just roll your eyes at me?" Because... obviously she did, they have their own eyes right?

* PTSD : An unfortunate encounter while high in her youth, has made her... wary of physical affection with other people. She managed to achieve what she needed for candidacy purposes, but she wouldn't say she excelled at achieving maximum-dragonrider-sexuality-enlightenment. It usually manifests in outbursts when people touch her without permission, which doesn't exactly work well when you punch a well-meaning dragonrider. She had latrine duties for weeks.

* MORBID : Partly because she wants the attention for liking things that other people don't like, and partly because she enjoys making people feel uncomfortable. Na'va enjoys having an effect on people which is so readily evident.

* MOUTHY : Not the kind of person that shuts up when she thinks something unjust is happening to her, Na'va isn't one afraid of getting in trouble, she's also not sure when to damn well quit it.

* UNPREDICTABLE : A major result of her not wanting to confront her own struggles, hang ups and shortcomings, Na'va can't think two steps ahead of herself to prevent herself from getting in trouble. She's not the kind of person to acknowledge that something may set her off and remove herself from the situation.

Describe Yourself:

* EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE: ----- Na'va thinks that she hates people. Most people thinks that she hates them. Technically she does, but it all stems from a betrayal in her past, and instead of dealing with people again she's just... decided to not.

* ANGRY/ANGSTY: ----- Na'va is angry that her parents died, angry that her friend died, angry that she almost died and angry that the rest of Pern died. She hasn't found a way to... expend her anger, and in all honestly, she enjoys the tight, rigid feeling that being angry makes her.

* SARCASTIC: ----- Obviously the best way to expend her anger is by being a snippy little shit, manifesting majorly in sarcasm.

* ANARCHIST: ----- Na'va isn't the kind of person to go starting a riot herself, but she will certainly support anarchist ideals. She doesn't believe in "the system". Which is why she likes the dragonriders so much. Of all the systems she has to be in, the dragonriders get to bang who they want, learn what they want and as long as they're not putting anyone else in danger fly wherever the hell they want.

* ESCAPIST: ----- Hopefully she's learnt from her past to find healthier ways to escape from this shitty world, but it's still a major part of her personality.

The Magic Touch:
Passion Vine is a vice - she managed to break the addiction upon the move.
Believes in some sort of "fate"
Na'va would call herself a lesbian should a classification be asked for, but she's not wholly so

Family...

Mother: Holder Lady Neryse b. 2553 d. 2584
Father: Peacekeeper Vardenor b. 2550 d. 2584

Siblings:
Holder Wife Vairyse b. 2567 (cut all ties with her family, and took a husband so that she was no longer associated with the bad blood there).
Dealer Nerron b. 2571 d. 2585
Hold brat Nyvorre b. 2578 (raised as Vairyse's child after parents death)


Children:
None - her sexual encounters with men have been minimal

Tell us a story...



* 2573, 0 Born to a not-badly-off Holder couple, who had recently made themselves a space within the Peacekeeper community, Na'va was the third of their children. Her sister didn't mind having another baby in the house, although it did double her workload as the eldest daughter, her brother on the other hand, just a toddler himself, did not take kindly to the new addition. It didn't foster a home life that was particularly stable or healthy for the young Na'va, but she knew no different. At least she, unlike many of the other children in Fort Hold, had a roof over her head and foot in her belly.

* 2578, 5 Her younger sibling Nyvorre is born and the eldest (Vairyse) seems quite happy to be able to look after a baby again. With Na'va and Nerron constantly at each other's throats, it seemed their eldest sister enjoyed being able to wash her hands of them. It disappointed Na'va, as Vairyse had been the only person she'd felt a real connection with. Their mother was too occupied with herself, and their father with work, Vairyse had been the only figure to look up to.

* 2583, 10 A man courting Vairyse gave the family pick from a firelizard clutch, in the hope of getting their approval for marriage. Na'va didn't particularly care about the reasons why, she was just happy she was getting a present. It hatched into a brave little brown, a little on the scrawny side, but definitely not lacking in courage and determination. Lazarus was more than Na'va could have ever hoped for.

* 2584, 11 This turn was when everything in Na'va's life changed, and not for the better. Her father had snitched upon the gang he had been covering up for, deciding to hedge his bets on someone else. He chose wrong. The gang didn't suffer as many consequences as Vardenor had been hoping, and the next day, he and his wife never woke up. The firelizards and whers that had been sleeping or on guard, had all been taken out before they could alert the rest of the family. Including Na'va's Lazarus. The children were given the opportunity to scatter, or work for them. All chose to leave except Na'va's elder brother Nerron. Her sister Vairyse, found a husband, cut all ties from what remained of their family, and essentially created a new identity, raising their youngest sibling as if Nyvorre was her own child. Na'va has not seen or heard from her since (that would likely ruin the point of making a new life), and has always been bitter that Vairyse didn't take her with them.

* 2585, 12 Nerron made a mistake in one of his runs, and the gang killed him rather than be associated any longer. Na'va, who had been sneaking around stealing and watching from the sidelines, was offered his position. It was somewhere in between dealer and runner. Starting off with all the worst and most risky runs, before they realised that once she stopped mouthing off, she was really quite intelligent. She made her way up the ranks, and spent the next two turns either undergoing risky drops and collections, or in a drug-hazed stupor, having ready access to Passion Vine. Not really feeling anything about her new profession, proud, scared, nothing.

* 2586, 13 Na'va only tried to break that habit when she got raped. So lethargic and weak in the limbs that she had no ability to protect herself. She spent the next turn trying to wean herself off the substance. She finishes off this turn with only a light addition to smoking the vine, more mental than her mind/body physically reacting to the drug. In all honesty, she's afraid to no longer have something she can blame for everything going wrong in her life.

* 2587, 14 Eventually Na'va was forced to forgo Passion Vine completely, with the supply cut off by the move to the Weyr. She managed to extricate herself from the gang with the move as well, sliding into the ranks of Weyrfolk and working, instead of just... skulking around like the others seemed to do. Na'va was terrified, but excited for a new start on life. The hatching of the black dragon only convinced her that her luck was changing, and she had a chance to be on the up for once in her life.

* 2590, 17 Holders and Miners are given the opportunity to move to the mostly completed Mine Hall, but Na'va refuses. Not a sevenday later, she is searched. Na'va sees that as a sign, a check in the dragonrider box, and a cross in the Holder box. Perhaps this was an institution should wouldn't suffer overly much by conforming to.

* 2591, 18 Her candidacy had been... a little rough. But the candidatemaster had kicked a boy out just the turn she'd joined, and so Na'va knew that if she wanted to stay she'd have to get her shit together. Holding her tongue at opportune moments obviously paid off, no matter how much it grated her, and Na'va impressed at Kalestath's clutch, to the most perfect companion she'd ever met.

Nallenvarda listened with glazed eyes to O'sir's spiel, one that she'd heard at least three times before, and therefore obviously didn't need to listen to again. She stared idly at a point just beyond his shoulder, in the hope that if he swung his eyes over her he couldn't tell. But O'sir could always tell.

When he finished, she nodded seriously along with the rest that she understood his instructions. It was always the same thing. Be polite, don't run, don't anger Kalestath or she'd eat you blah blah blah. Small details.

Nal didn't particularly enjoy egg touchings all that much anyways. She didn't get them. There was no feeling or connection to these... fetuses. Were they classified as a fetus if they were in an egg? She didn't know. Regardless, Nallenvarda had never had an egg speak to her before, nor an electric shock when she touched one. But perhaps that had something to do with her not impressing yet. Maybe the egg her dragon was going to pop out of was going to give her the chills or something.

So sighing, she weaved her way through the eggs. Absently touching each one as she passed, sniggering silently a little at some of the more... attentive candidates.

Dragon Details

Name:
Derraseth
Pronounced:
[ DARE-rah-seth ]
Color:
Red
Date of Birth:
24.06.2591 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 16.7M
Mature Height: 2.6M
Mature Wingspan: 26.5M

General Appearance...

Most of Derraseth is a vibrant red color similar to a strawberry, with subtle variations therein that prevent him from looking entirely matte or consistent. Some areas on his body are a slightly darker hue, such as his shoulders, front right leg, neck ridges, and tail. But it's his patches of lighter color that are much more striking, nearly appearing white in places though close inspection will reveal they are simply a very pale pink. There's no real rhyme, reason, or symmetry to where these areas are located, and they, along with his darker shadings, will shift shape and location slightly while he grows.

Of middling size for a Red dragon, Derraseth's wingspan is also more or less average for his length. That being said, he is drastically shorter at the shoulder than most others of similar sizes. His body is robust and not as spindly as some others of his color -- not stocky, but certainly sturdy. His back legs in particular are incredibly powerful, and will make him an adept runner, jumper, and able to put on quick bursts of speed when he's initially taking off.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Initially, there's something about Derraseth's voice that seems like a purr -- not precisely sweet, but much softer than his personality actually warrants. Anyone who listens to him for any length of time, however, will rapidly detect something sharper beneath, a tart undercurrent more in line with his true self.

Likes:
Conflict : Derraseth thrives on it. Whether it's in a mild form, like wrestling with his siblings, or something more drastic like picking a fight with a larger dragon, this Red doesn't know when to back down. He'll occasionally even bicker with Na'va, but the majority of the time it will instead be the two of them pitted against another. Derraseth loves the thrill of having something to rally against.

Reputation : Specifically, his. He'll quickly realize that other people don't know what to expect from dragons of his color, and Derraseth will be shameless in taking advantage of that. Whether it's posturing aggressively, hissing at others, or otherwise cultivating that underlying sense of uncertainty and fear, he appreciates that people don't know how to categorize him and his rider.

Dislikes:
Boredom : Don't leave him unattended somewhere if you don't want him to get in trouble. Derraseth has infamously short patience, and he'll find ways to entertain himself if no one else is doing it for him. This may lead to the destruction of property or him getting into a physical altercation. And he won't ever apologize, believing it's your fault for not giving him something to do.

Sameness : Derraseth doesn't want to be like everyone else, and is firmly convinced that he and Na'va aren't. He'll rankle against being compared to another in such a fashion, and will likely get along bets with Greens or other Reds simply because he sees them as more varied and less rank-and-file as the other colors.

Strengths:

* THICK-SKINNED : Derraseth couldn't give less of a damn what other people think of him. Insults, underestimations of his abilities -- none of it will faze him. There's no point, to him, in getting upset about it; he and Na'va will prove them wrong anyway, and it's just a waste of their energy dwelling on other people's opinions. Physically speaking, he's also hard to injure, shaking off pain and minor wounds and quickly healing from them besides.

* GROUNDED : In contrast with some other Reds, this one isn't stuck in the clouds. He'll reel Na'va in when she tries to check out of situations that really do need to be confronted, combating her natural impulse to escape and avoid certain situations. But he doesn't do it cruelly, and it will perpetually be with the reminder he'll be there to support her the whole way, no matter what happens.

Weaknesses:

* SOCIALLY OBLIVIOUS : Derraseth doesn't know (or care) when something he does or says might be inappropriate or upset someone. But don't mistake this as social awkwardness -- if he really wanted to, he could grasp other people's motivations and feelings. It just doesn't occur to him that it matters.

* PIG-HEADED : Once this fellow gets a notion in his head, it's near impossible to dislodge. Often, that is coupled with a sense that he's always right, so there's even less reason for him to sway from his convictions. This will no doubt cause some rifts between him and others, and potentially even create some contention between himself and his rider if they have vastly different ideas about how a situation should be handled.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #F1CAC8; Text: #7F1716

Anything Else:
Made per the process outlined at the Optional Weyrling Application. Please let us know via PM if you choose to accept or reject this dragon.

Derraseth is intended to be Red 008 -- the one that licked at the bloodstain on the sands. We hope you like him! :love:
