Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
8.2591 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!

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

Looks Red, Tastes Blue [29.06.2591, 8:34 PM] R'kan

What are we doing?

//We’re looking for Rinokan.//

Oh, the Blue trotted alongside Droissa, his head tilted as he tried to make sense of her sudden desire to be social. We’ve never looked for anyone before.

//Don’t you think it’s time we started?// Saebrith’s silence meant he accepted this turn of events. Any excursion into the world of friendship was a welcome one, in his opinion.

The new group of weyrlings made the barracks feel crowded. Kalestath, as ever, had produced a large clutch. Add the late hour and it meant the halls and commons were overflowing with still-awkward dragonets and their still-new-to-all-of-this riders.The pair of them were quick on their feet though, sidestepping unaware hatchlings and Droissa herself going so far as to smile at the new faces she passed by. She’d been in their place not even a turn ago.

While she was sure that her new peers were full of a new-found hope, she wasn’t sure where that put Rinokan. Was he out here, mingling? That didn’t exactly sound like him. Neither did she think he’d be actively avoiding everything in his new room. Maybe somewhere in between?

There are many Red dragons here, Saebrith noted as they rounded a corner. That was about as much as she knew about Rinokan now, that he had Impressed one of the Reds. Dro’s fear of the mutations had long since been lost, and all that remained of the Kalestath 2590 clutch was the occasional nightmare. She had tried long and hard to forget the events of that day, and that task had gotten much easier with Saebrith’s birth.

Sitting in the stands the following year had been nerve wracking, but seemed to mark a turning point in dealing with the mutations that Rinokan had benefited from.

//He’s here, see?// And he was there, involved but not, which meant Droissa could approach him without feeling like she was interrupting something. Saebrith, ever social, stayed fast beside Dro and trilled a greeting to Hisketh.

“Hello,” she said.

Hello, he said.

R’kan was glad, at least, that Hisketh wasn’t demanding that he be social. As much as he might know that he was going to have to get to know the people in his class—and there were so fucking many of them!—the idea of doing so all at once was… overwhelming. He’d never been a social butterfly, and that had never bothered him; it was a relief that HIsketh didn’t seem fazed by it either. He’d gotten the impression that all she wanted was to make sure he knew who the others were, because it would be important information.

That was something he could understand. But as hyperactive as some of the other Reds were, R’kan figured he’d lucked out. Hisketh seemed to have hatched with a surprising amount of maturity, and even his restless energy had its limits sometimes.

So though he wasn’t hiding in their room like some hermit, he was content for the moment to just let the others’ antics move on around him without his participation. Like a stone anchored in a swift riverbed, he’d claimed one of the ratty couches situated around the periphery of the Commons and settled in it—laying on it, really, with his head on one arm and his feet propped on the other.

Hisketh was curled up on his stomach, half asleep, and Scoria draped over the top of the sofa. Fascinated as he still was by her dark red hide, R’kan had just been running his fingers over it. But as someone approached, first his firelizard and then his dragon woke more fully. The former recognized who it was, and it was Scoria’s polite hum of acknowledgment that first made R’kan look up just as Droissa spoke.

An actual grin broke out on his face then, and he sat up hurriedly—snagging Hisketh and easily shifting her to his lap as he did so. Graceful and composed as ever, she simply moved with him rather than flailing about at the abrupt position change. Her eyes, previously an easy blue, became a green-hued teal in wakefulness and curiosity.

“Dro! Hey.” Part of him had worried what this meeting might be like. Awkward? But now that she was there, he was too excited to feel any of that. Scooting to one side of the small couch, he indicated the space he’d made if she wanted to sit.

They hadn’t seen one another as much since she’d Impressed, and he’d missed her company.

Absently smoothing his dragon’s wings against her sides to make sure they weren’t out of place after he’d moved her, he half presented her, shifting her more forward on his lap. “Meet Hisketh.”

Hello, she purred in response to the older Blue, and folded her front feet beneath her like a feline might. The greeting was extended to Dro as well, a brief and polite brushing of their minds. Then, just to the other dragon, she commented, You must be Saebrith. I’m Hisketh. She’d picked up the name from R’kan’s memories; Droissa and P’ar were the two people he thought of most beyond his family, and she’d already met the latter. His thoughts had indicated he didn’t know Saebrith as well; she supposed that meant it was her responsibility to fix that.

She wasn’t sure that she’d ever get used to the size of the Red dragons. Her flit, Wander, was nearly Hisketh’s equal. She didn’t voice these thoughts, she knew enough weyrfolk said it with more sinister undertones, but she did let her eyes linger on the small dragon as she was resettled with more grace than expected from a hatchling. Hisketh’s presence of mind was a gift after they’d just struggled through the waves of lesser-developed weyrlings.

Rinokan looked pleased to see her, though she felt a bit guilty for stirring him from what had looked like a very comfortable position. He inched over and gave up the space for her, and she inclined her head in thanks before climbing onto the couch and sitting cross-legged, facing him. Saebrith sprawled out below her, his limbs lazily relaxed but his head held up with polite interest.

“Hisketh,” she greeted, bowing forward as best she could. “It’s lovely to meet you. This is Saebrith,” her hand made a casual flourish toward the blue. Dro then straightened her posture and looked back up at Rinokan with a wry grin, “She’s a very healthy shade of red, isn’t she?” Like wine, or blood. “And not a black dragon like I’d guessed, guess I lose that bet.”

Yes, he said back to the red, his tone bright. I am Droissa’s Saebrith. It’s good to meet you, I hope we will be friends. His knobby head tilted to the side and his tail swung this way and that with long, lazy strokes.

“She suits you, though,” she added, her voice just a touch softer. That he’d Impressed a mutation still fit what she knew of him, however her own previous prejudices had her feeling a bit of guilt. Saebrith touched her mind briefly, soothing that remorse until she stopped frowning.

“So, are you still Rinokan?”

As Dro settled to his side, R’kan leaned back against the couch, propping one elbow against the arch of it as he got comfortable. Hisketh was content to remain on his lap where she was, though the absent flick of her tail made it clear she was quite focused on the newcomers and their conversation. They were interesting, in no small part because her rider had taken a shine to Droissa long before Hisketh herself had even been an egg laid on the sands. That made them worthy of the Red’s attention, in her own mind.

You must have a thing for Blue riders, she teased him privately, and R’kan only barely avoided shooting her a glare.

He eagerly seized upon the topic at hand then, to quickly forget about what his dragon had implied and avoid blushing some uncharacteristically. “She is, right?” He certainly thought Hisketh looked rather fetching. “Nah, she’d be the tiniest Black ever if she was.” Already, he could scarcely imagine her growing up into a full-sized, if small, dragon—much less something as big as what the Black dragons grew up to be. He’d certainly spend less time oiling her than some of his classmates would on theirs, with time.

“Thanks.” R’kan’s smile was quieter then. As much as some of the others were disapproving or downright insulting about the mutations, it was nice to have someone in his corner who wasn’t. Despite the injury that Droissa had suffered at the claws of one of the Reds in an older class, it meant a lot to R’kan that she didn’t hold it against Hisketh.

Her question did make him blink though. “Oh, right.” It was weird, having to re-introduce himself to people he already knew. Even getting used to the honorific was weird, and different, and would take some time. “She calls me R’kan, so I guess that’s what I go by now. I’m still me, though.” He couldn’t resist that little half-joking addendum, given the way the question had been phrased. Things might have changed, but he was still him. That seemed important.

On his lap, Hisketh hummed a happy note to the older Blue. I would like that very much. Saebrith seemed mellow, which was something she could appreciate.
