Winter, Turn 2511
A drought has lasted for more than a Turn in the Fortian region. Although cold, the weather remains dry, with very little snowfall. The water-level in the lake is low, and the lower caverns are now rationing non-essential water (for bathing, laundry, et cetera).
Father was, in some ways, a genius - a trait that Jaymesin both acknowledged and believed that he'd inherited in full.
...Anath snatched the booger-fish from the water and swallowed it whole.
"Look," J'nor growled. "It goes like this: Weyrleaders, Wingleaders, Wingriders, everybody else."
"Self-imposed ignorance is not an answer that will restore our presence on Pern."
"To the hope that I don't screw it up again."
Something got lost in the translation between his brains and his mouth. As is common with men.
He recalled that now, some of the flits from the eighth pass had some dumb names, like fancy and bubbles.
A'dair on Firelizard Names
He pulled the klah from his jacket, offering her the skin with a cheeky grin "I do hope your meaning this.... Because I don't know that I'd be good for much else at the moment" He teased, earning a questioning chirp from Carmine. The little gold did not understand the image that had just popped into A'dair's head. Why on pern would two people wrestle in bed?
A'dair - agreeing to share his klah to warm Amaryn up
She looks like a wet wherry, except not so appetizing.
I'm not sure I agree with that.
You don't eat women. Kavath commented, sounding faintly surprised until he caught the imagery that painted itself in V'turo's imagination. Ah. You should do that then.
Kavath and V'turo
"..mind if I put on some pants first, old boy?"
...does that mean I can be loud and obnoxious when I grow up?
Tegan sighed. I don't think you need to wait, pal.
Really? Do yo--hey, wait a minute!
Tegan and Anath
Why was all the pretty string trying to eat him up?
Ice the Firelizard
All Tristan knew, for the moment, was that his knife was in his hand, intruders were in his Hold, and his heart was in his throat.
...he'd not yet mastered the trick of materialising his desires from thin air however hard he'd been trying of late.
He made no move as she circled him, watching her disappear and reappear in his range of sight as if people circling him was an everyday occurrence. When she was before him once more he said, "I am. Do you need to inspect my teeth? Or perhaps my hands instead?"
"Thing about it is the less you move it about the better. Let the moulds do their work, an we'll have pies before a tunnelsnake can shake its nethers atcha."
HOW DARE THAT STRAND RUIN HER BEAUTIFUL HIDE!!!!
Issiay's Green Feyth
You aren't going to cry, are you?
Kiverath on his bonding to G'brihl
Maybe there'd be some of that nasty juice-stuff and they'd all get happy and giggly. Giggly two-leggers were the best.
Cholareth would show them how browns did it. Make that 'full-grown browns', he mentally amended as he sent a grumpy, explicative-laced growl at Gabrieth. 'Cos yeah, that'd show him too.
Cholareth during Filiath's flight
Clearly I need to get me one of these fancy gather dresses... Wanna swap?
This was not a fight to live, this was a fight to die.
"Surrender now and you will not be harmed! Fight and you will die, its your decision gentlemen!"
Wi'sc, while liberating Fort Hold
"Next you'll be making yourself pretty dresses I'm sure." Her eyes gave him a quick brush up and down, nodding to herself. "Not that you have the legs for it."
Luka in response to Wil'm's joking
"Warth, cage the fat man would you?!" He hollered over his shoulder to the bronze, using his words rather than his mindvoice to further demoralize the fighters around him. "If he pokes you with his little knife, you have my permission to squish him by accident"
Her eyes flickered up the bronzerider's face and across to his knots. Bronzerider. Not Fortian. Interesting. She had a distinct slowness in her look, that when it so suddenly became business again was almost disconcerting.
Moira upon meeting Wi'sc for the first time
Under the table the stump tail wriggled in lazy wags, though for the most part the canine remained still. His tongue lolled out a little, licking the hands that gave him such wonderful scratches.
Shirk on getting some attention
"Na brother of yah's will drink me under any tables, nor will they need ta." Dark eyes focused for a moment on Shilo's, as if to wordlessly drive the point home. He'd be there. Deep down he was the spitting image of his dogs, loyal and constant, even if his stomach was turning in knots and he was frankly terrified.
Rensire on being a daddy
Rolling over, At'ald discovers that he can't lay on air.
The brown Weyrling stopped in her tracks and stared. No, she hadn't been seeing things. Rensire was flirting and winking and hugging and--ugh! And that was why Shilo wasn't in the fighting wings. Tegan hadn't thought much of it, because mating flights were a way of life and all, but it had never crossed her mind that the reason Shilo was pregnant--and she was, for all that Tegan was in a foul enough mood to simply consider her a fat cow--was because of Rensire. Her and Rensire. She and him, he and her.
Tegan upon discovering Rensire's involvement with Shilo
"The weyrlings will still be needing their noses wiped after dinner, I'm sure you can make time." Her brow inched just a smidge higher, as if daring him to disagree.
Moira trying to get Ry'ver to be social
...he and Zabadath wanted to fly so badly.
I do not want to fly badly, I want to fly well!
J'sin blushed ever so slightly at Zabadath's private message.
Good point. We so badly want to fly?
J'sin and Zabadath
Rumor had it that Wi'sc at least knew his ass from his elbow. As far as bronzeriders went, that qualified him as 'not idiotic.'
If that was your version of flirting, that was terrible...
Don't bother shouting. I'm going to be, ah, 'chasing tail'.
You don't really gotta work so hard to flatter weyrbred girls. They pretty much just put-out without all the sweet-talk.
Was it considered rude to scrub spotless the weyr of a man you didn't really know except that you'd slept with him the night before?
Ailora did not much time to instruct them on a few issues that were rampant here on the Southern continent. Such as wherry-brained men.
He paused, dark gaze scanning over her face for a long moment, deep in his own contemplation of just how she'd managed to do such a thing "All the boys at Harper Hall queer or something?"
Wil'm about Nydia's virginity
"...being bonded to a dragon is all of life and death and passion in between."
Amaryn to candidates
It also helped that the chances of finding two seconds alone with another weyrling was about the same as finding a leprechaun.
I was sunning, my friend Amos - I like him very much when he isnt angry, usually he is not angry but that girrrrl - anyway, Amos was making himself a new hide and then they came and hit him, Parshath. I hit Sdric back. Amos then got very mad at me, instead of them. Why?
Iskeroth / A'mos
At least the life of a weyrling would mean he wouldn't have much time to dwell on his utter and total lameness.
She should be sorrier. Iskeroth decided, discarding the wing which was not tasty. And bring you many presents. Like new hides... shirts.
Isk, you are very strange.
Thank you. I love you too, compadre.
A'mos & Iskeroth
