News
Autumn, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:

Upcoming Hatchings:
Copper Laanasuth
Copper Zelsk

With two clutches hardening on the Hatching Sands the big question seemed to be: which will hatch first?

The answer came in short order with Copper Zelsk's clutch breaking shell moments before Copper Laanasuth's. With so many eggs surely the dual hatching offers hope to the numerous Candidates who fill Dalibor's ranks. Only time will show who will come away with a lifemate of their very own...

... and who will forfeit their life in hopes of Impression.

Swithin had let the word get out that he needed help with the wherlings, more specifically he needed handlers willing to take one of them out on patrol with him. In response he had a handful of volunteers which meant his wherlings would be even safer on patrol. Everything would work out just fine! Even better was that most of the volunteers came from the same prides, except Vessa but the prideleader was more than willing to pick up an extra patrol night and go out with Tariv in order to be of assistance. Only three of his class would be taken out on patrol over the next sevenday.

Raelsk meet Swisk’s by lake. Patrol tonight with handlers from Charlie Pride. Swisk was waiting with Swithin by the lake for the viridianwherling and her wher. He’d given instructions to all of them two candlemarks ago to make sure they all ate well and had some klah. Once they had tended to themselves they were to feed their whers if they were hungry and then oil them as needed. They were much larger now than they had been as hatchlings but still would grow for the next few seasons so oiling their hides was key; once they were fully grown they’d need to keep up on oiling to maintain their hide but the need would not be as frequent, at least they had that to look forward to.

Once the wherling joined him he began the walk to the split in the Weyr wall, ”Tonight you will be joining Pridesecond Tarele and priderunner Edelan. They are from Charlie Pride and will be showing you just one of the duties you have to look forward to as a priderunner. If you have questions you may ask them, they were once in your shoes so I doubt they will think you too foolish.” Stopping abruptly he gave her a sidelong look before finally turning to face her, ”I expect you and Raelsk will behave yourselves.” It sounded just as much like a statement as it did a question but he continued walking all the same.

Reaching the meeting point he was happy to see the brownhandler and cyanhandler pairs already waiting. With a curt nod he swept his hand to indicate the wherling by his side, ”This is Raela and Raelsk. If you can return her in the same condition she’s in now then I leave her in your care.”

[Thank you Mopsy and Jenn for offering your handlers. Oh btw Jenn, Edelan is in Charlie Pride! ^^]

Tarele was fairly experienced with Wherlings and Candidates shadowing him for a patrol both with another wherhandler and not, in this case he also had a Cyanhandler from his own Pride though Tarele didn’t have any one on one experience with Edelan. Taresk was happy enough with the arrangement, working with female whers was always good even if it was strictly business without any more friendly interaction and he didn’t mind having a Viridian along with them as long as he didn’t cause trouble. Tarele, Taresk, Swithin, Swisk, Edelan, and Edesk were already assembled by the lake when Raela and Realsk arrived with the Pridesecond. Tarele and Taresk were prepared for the patrol and what they might encounter, well as much as could be reasonably be expected considering the inherent unpredictability of his job.

Tarele gave the Viridianwherling a small smile, and though Raela was a mix of both older than he was but still of a lower rank for now he still offered his hand for a handshake he hadn’t exactly been looking to get the position he had after all. “We’ll do our best Candidatemaster Swithin,” said Tarele couldn’t guarantee anything more than that, though odds are they would barring something extraordinarily bad happening while on patrol tonight.

This was where her new purpose lay and as such, Raela was ready and prepared for all her orders. Even before they were called, she had taken the time to oil, feed and prepare herself for the patrol. Of course, Raelsk took a long time to say farewell to his new kitten 'Who', a name he had given the kitten as they had not figured out to whom she belonged, and then allowed Cenai to join them on his back. Raela armed herself, hiding a knife on her person, reasoning that if they were on patrol she would rather like a weapon in case something happened, and then joined Swithin by the lake.

The woman formally nodded to the wherlingmaster and only just managed to mask her frustration when he mentioned 'behaving'. She still wasn't sure how she felt about this one but with the way things were going, they would be graduated in no time. Instead she nodded again.
"As our orders are given, so shall they be carried out."
Only if orders are orderly and logical, Raelsk told Raela quietly.

She refrained from chastising the wher at that point. They met the handlers at the lake and Raela shook the hand offered by the brownhandler and then offered her hand to the cyanhandler.
Shall we take show on the road? Move along and find adventures? Raelsk asked the other two whers innocently.

Don't know why must bring baby

Because Swithin and Swisk asked us too, Edesk and you will behave,

Always beeeeehave. Always good and kind wher

Edelan snorted at that. Edesk behaved when she wanted to and that tended to be when she was confronted with a superior. And she wasn't always kind. The wher wasn't thrilled to be on patrol with a wherling, not quite caring about the newest batch of handlers and whers coming in until they were actually graduated and considered part of the prides. Edesk would rather ignore the bunch until that time happened and she was quite put out to be asked for such a duty. She would manage, though, and Edelan would make sure the small cyan behaved. The cyan snorted against her back where they waited with the brown for Swithin. She wasn't altogether familiar with the brown and his handler but like Edesk and the wherling, Edelan would manage.

Edelan nodded back at the wherlingmaster and Edesk grunted a greeting when the two pairs met with them. "Oh I'm sure we'll manage to keep them in one piece," she said to Swithin with amusement making an already husky voice more so. Edesk snorted and hissed her own amusement, thoughts of destruction rattling through her mind and she moved to stand next to her small handler. You're as bad as Wicked! Edelan sent at her and was rewarded with a light slap with a forked tail. Idiot she answered with affection and a slap against a pebbly shoulder before shaking the hand that was offered by the wherling.

Edesk's eyes narrowed dangerously at the innocent question Raelsk sent at them. This not funny business, baby wher! This serious business. Adventures no, duty yes! We not move show on road until Tarele and Edelan ready. Baby wher need learn patience! "Stop being rude, Edesk," Edelan admonished the wher with her own eyes narrowing at the cyan, "Tarele you ready? Raela you ready?" She glanced at the brownhandler before continuing, "Have you got an idea of what our patrol will be?" She could wait until the pridesecond decided how to run this patrol and she sent a blistering jolt to Edesk to behave once more.

Raelsk gave off a good impression at least, the Viridian being more than willing to get down to business, though he couldn’t say the same thing about the Cyan that was the other part of the adult whers in this patrol. Tarele was glad that Raela accepted the offered hand for the handshake, though he wasn't sure if the other handler in full accepted the hand that Raela offered. Taresk is high rank this patrol Edesk, said Taresk more as a friendly reminder than actual command. Not see why can’t have both, though work very serious can be an adventure as long as work gets done and no one gets hurt.

“I’m ready,” said Tarele pausing slightly to remember what patrol they would be doing tonight. “Inside the Weyr on a rotating patrol I’m pretty sure, good as a starting point I think.”

The Brown was more than willing to take up the lead, he was the bigger of the two adult whers in the patrol, starting to walk in the direction of the patrol for the night expecting the other two and their handlers would follow soon after. The Brown soon looked back at the Viridian drawing from Tarele's memories of the pair shadowing a patrol themselves for the first time saying, Do you smell anything of note Raelsk, though it's early you can't start too early.

In the short while she had been bonded to Raelsk, Raela had realised something. Where she maintained a modest life, the wher was content to stick out like a vibrant green hide in the middle of a snow storm. Meaning, the more attention he could get the better. Now, he finally had the attention of not one but two older whers and one of them a Pridesecond. Raela absolutely noticed the puffed out chest and taller stature of her wher as he drew himself up taller even as he was chastised by the cyan. When the brown agreed with him, he tossed his head slightly.

Why not both? He asked slyly of the cyan.
If he were human, Raela was certain that he would have been grinning. Raela really didn't want him to annoy the cyan so she sent him a brief warning causing the Viridian to settle, though only a little as he turned to follow the adult whers.

"Yes," Raela responded to the other handlers with a curt nod of her head, "Do you ever use firelizards on patrol?"
Her gaze flickered to her firelizard and then began scanning the area as they started the patrol.

Smell only kitchens and runnerbeasts. Not even terribly tasty. He raised his head and sniffed at the air.
