TW: Forced Catch Attempt - Done with Rii's permission

Wine-red wings continued to beat at the air, refusing to give up. They reached for the Copper above, powering after her as she flew ahead.

ENOUGH! Vikareth bellowed, a roar accompanying the word. You ask for words and you got them. You refuse to listen and you refuse to look. We are greater than you dare say. A loud snort sounded among the thudding of so many wings buffeting the air. You look for poetry where action is needed. You want prose when power is what is important. His tone oozed distaste now. He was not angry - not quite, anyway - but the sneer on his face showed the distaste the Burgundy felt for the Copper at this moment.

We have come for a single purpose - to prove ourselves the best mate, the best to father your eggs, and you dare think that pretty words are the solution to that question? Words do not fight Thread! Oh, if he could, Vikareth would be belching flame now to prove that it was this power that proved virility, not his boasting.

Enough. This time, the word was merely a whisper, and he twisted upward. He may be small, but he was speed. And Laanasuth was stupid enough to get within sprinting range. Let the others try to beat him, it was Vikareth that darted his way forward, arms outstretched, and in moments, wing joints in hand.

A decision was made - but it wasn't hers.

Laanasuth shrieked as Vikareth's forelegs clasped around a wingjoint, fouling her flight. For a moment, she faltered in the sky, dropping a few feet at the unexpected weight against her front. As a queen, she performed air rescues to those injured during Threadfall, but those didn't grab at her wings. They were caught against the broadest part of her back, where she was braced for it.

But she didn't stay offguard for long. Wrenching about regardless of his foreclaws, she brought her own to bear and raked him down the front, tearing herself free by force. No mere fighter could hold a queen so easily; they were simply far too big.

Her eyes blazed red with fury. How dare you. HOW DARE YOU? she bellowed. Her tail lashed as her wings beat hard, lifting her away from the pack of males, Vikareth's ichor dripping from her foreclaws as she prepared to rend anyone else who even looked to try what the burgundy had. This is MY flight. This is MY CHOICE! How dare ANY of you try to take that from me?!

She seethed, glaring at the entire pack in enraged offense. This was too much to bear, especially on top of how disappointed she'd been in their answers. I will have none of this insult. I will have none of you, she spoke in bitter anger.

Eyes glazed with her flight-connection with the copper, Jali half sat up in her bed, nearly colliding with Armon. Too late, she reached out, trying to wrest back control where she'd never had the need for more than a guiding pressure before; Laanasuth knew what was needed in a Flight. Laanasuth, what are you doing. LAANASUTH, NO, I FORBID IT-

The copper vanished between, leaving her would-be suitors and would-be catcher in the skies.

Jali dropped back, covering her face with her hands. "She did it. She... she left. She's gone back to High Reaches, to seek a mate there. Oh, Faranth..." This is going to be a scandal.

A growl escaped Vikareth as he tried, vainly, to cling to Laanasuth even as she resisted, though his grasp lasted a mere moment. There was a popping sound as joints gave way where claws did not, and a great bellow of pain as the Copper lashed out.

NO! Vikareth screamed as he scrabbled, weakly, at Laanasuth's paws, trying to pull them out of the way. He would not give up his quarry so easily, yet he had no choice. She was nearly twice his length, many times his bulk, more powerful than the Burgundy ever would be. More powerful than he was now, rent as he was by her claws.

No! he bellowed again, wings beating awkwardly as he tried to right himself, to get back to the Copper hide tarnished green with his own ichor. It was in vain, as Laanasuth disappeared and the floundering Burgundy was left to fall into the pack of males, all stymied by the arrogance of one tiny fighter.

One of the other males, a burgundy--practically his own blood-brother--had deigned to force Laanasuth to twine with him. A growl formed in the back of the males throat, evolving into a bellow as Laanasuth and the other burgundy fell, and twisted, and fought. Laanasuth's voice cracked through the skies, threatening to rend his head apart. The burgundy winced, his lust turning to rage--rage against the male who had scorned their queen and hurt her so.

The most shocking of things occurred, and Falkreath, most literally stunned, watched as the copper disappeared into the nothingness of /between/. He reached out for her mind, tried to assure himself that she was safe and that he would not have to follow her in an effort to bring her back safely. No, she was not gone... She had not... She had left, elsewhere. Dalibor had failed her this day, and simply by virtue of being among them he had failed her also.

Vikareth had the audacity to be enraged. Ichor stained his hide from where Laanasuth had dragged her powerful claws down his form. Falkreath, eyes now whirring a heavy mix of red tones, raised his head up as the burgundy came careening towards the male suitors. Upon impression, and throughout weyrlinghood, he had fought his more primal urges. With the help of His, he had become the dragon that both she, and he, needed him to be. But now? There was a call for justice, and he rose to the occasion in hopes of answering it.

So, as the male fell towards him, jaws parted and claws poised at the ready. As the male came careening past, the burgundy made to bite at him, claw at him, and evidently rip him from the skies for all of eternity. He aimed for wings, eyes, and softer underbellies. He attacked the other burgundy with a fury that brought His to her knees.

Falkreath! Remove yourself from the skies! Return to me! the small woman demanded, but she could feel the shift, and turn. She had seen victory ripped away from all of the suitors, and felt as her dragons lust turned to rage, and thereafter a need for vengeance. She felt sick at the idea of denying him this, for she felt it so strongly herself that she nearly desired to be in the skies with him. She knew this wasn't right. She knew they had come so far... She feared that he would change, and no longer be the dragon she knew.

Falling into an open weyr, the smaller woman staggered. She needed somewhere safe to rest her head, and for once someone safe to procure her. She could no longer be in this alone, nor was she pretending that she wished to face it so. Falkreath was still apart of her, and yet she felt as if she was losing him. As the thrill of the chase drained from the blood red dragon, there was only violence left to behold.

They had noted the colour of Laanasuth's hide and watched as the copper took to the skies, paying close attention to the suitors. Couineth settled herself as soon as the males started chasing after the copper, noting each one and very pleased indeed to see that Baihujinth had chosen not to give chase.

As far as she could tell, everything was going off without a problem. Dragon chased Queen as per usual. There was little more attention that needed to be spent on the matter. Rayna returned to her work, speaking with some of the Harper's about the crèche program, receiving their updates.

A sudden hiss escaped Rayna, bleeding from Couineth.
He has tried to force her to choose him. Laanasuth has gone between I think to High Reaches. Yes. It would make the most sense for her to choose one of them. Silvianith, you and Yours are to go and watch.

Then Couineth launched herself into the air and betweened to where she believed the male suitors to be, watching as the burgundy dragon fell towards the pack of males.
Return to your riders, now. You have all disappointed Laanasuth, do not make it worse.

She moved into a position so that she would be able to catch or slow Vikareth if he could not steady himself and growled.
Fool.

The jarring snap of realization sent L'aars gasping for air. How had the Flight gone so wrong, so fast? One of the burgundies attempted to force catch Laanasuth and then, she was gone, Between to someplace else. With different suitors? He'd been a rider long enough to know what sort of chaos could ensue in the wake of an upset like this. A queen just left her weyr, insulted enough by her own to seek a mate elsewhere. Whoever she fell with...he would become junior weyrleader? Faranth, his head was still muddled from the Flight. This wasn't good. Dalibor was still recovering from losses to his ranks. What if the copper decided to abandon Dalibor's sands altogether? No. No. That wouldn't happen. Right? Had that ever happened before?

He groaned, unable to keep the horror from creeping into his voice, "Laanasuth...left."

Now, all that most of the weyr could do, was wait.

Jaireth was far from pleased at this shared conclusion.

His eyes swirled with red the moment one of the males tried to entangle her wings. Where was his honor? This was not the way of things! A creature of structure and order, the iron disdained that which disrupted it. There were rules. There were ethics. Laanasuth did not invite the fastest or strongest to attempt to pluck her from the sky. She asked whether they respected her and what he just did spat in the face of her query. It was ego. Arrogance. Foolishness. And in an impulsive moment, the errant suitor not only insulted the queen, but all of Dalibor.

Because she left.

Between she slipped, the need to Fall still setting her hide aglow.

They failed her.

Already distanced from the main pack (choosing to fly somewhat above and to the side), he had a clear view of the tragic fiasco. Vikareth fell towards the ground, hide stained with ichor. (Claws stained with ichor.) He snarled and pumped his wings, forcing himself to keep his distance. Though he did not interfere when Falkreath closed in to maul the male. It was tempting to hurt. To smite the creature that besmirched the queen's honor so...but as soon as his thoughts traveled to that idea, L'aars was there, yanking hard on the mental bond between them, begging him to come back to their weyr.

He could follow...if he knew where she went.

'No. Come back, Jair.'

The iron ached. He raged. And when Couineth came upon the scene, he tore himself away. Wounded and guilty, wondering if he should have interfered. It was Laanasuth's flight, but it was all their jobs to protect her, as much as it was to court her this day.

Disappointed?

Three of the dragons pursuing Laanasuth were separately puzzled by that response to various degrees. What in their answers was lacking? Each had responded to how they knew her best, from Shieth’s knowing her simply as a Queen to be followed to Alfonth’s knowing her as a survivor of tragedy, to Zeuth’s remembering the Copper’s first weeks there. The natural follow-up question would’ve been some variation on ‘so what do you want to know, then?’

But the question was destined never to be asked then. Not when an arrogant little fighter dared to force catch the Queen and insult her like that. Zeuth knew such shenanigans sometimes happened during Flights, with the offender rightfully shredded and rejected, and the female choosing another from the remains suitors. That was the way such things usually went. But for a Queen to be so insulted that she’d reject all her suitors for the actions of one....

Zeuth roared in impotent rage as Laanasuth took her leave of Dalibor for ‘better’ males. Had they not accepted her into their ranks, at a time when the other Weyrs made their intentions to overthrow their leadership known, and install ‘proper’ leaders in their place? Supported her in the loss of her eggs to assassins? And this was how Laanasuth showed her respect back to them?

Zeuth’s wrathful red gaze fell on Vikareth. The fool was responsible for shaming their Weyr for turns to come, and he was going to pay for it. Pay big time. The Bronze fell with claws outstretched towards the hapless fighter, already injured by another of his color for his folly. Minor injuries compared to what the larger dragon had planned.

NO!

Another mind seized Zeuth’s own, trying to take control of his actions. His rider, G’len, back in the safety of their weyr, refused to let him have bloody vengeance for the insult. Feelings more than words flowed back to the Bronze, reminding him that he was still a weyrleader for all he no longer held the titles of such. His actions would still be remembered, for better or worse, the next time another Queen (Couineth) Rose. Did he wish to disappoint his golden friend like that?

That, and the sudden appearance of the Gold in question, worked to mitigate Zeuth’s rage. Instead of rending the offending dragon limb from limb when he got close enough, he instead bellowed all his rage and anger at Vitkareth at the top of voice and mind, making it clear to the other just how badly he’d screwed up. That mistake wasn’t going to be forgotten anytime soon, to put it mildly.

Without physically touching the other male, Zeuth arced his flight pattern up a bit before disappearing between. He wanted time alone, away from all these others who now judged him horrible enough to drive a Queen in heat away from the Weyr. That he was innocent of any insult to Laanasuth would be ignored; all that anyone would look at was the fact that he’d been present, and failed spectacularly. He wanted to clear his head hunting for a bit before returning to HisBoy and deciding what to do next.

Alfonth and Shieth simply watched the going-ons from a small distance, just a hair too far away to interfere. Once Couineth arrived and ordered everyone home, the two complied. Shieth and His were secretly relieved to be free from feeling like they had to dogpile the offender along with everyone else. Alfonth simply flew the long way home, hoping the trip would spend enough of his energy to give him and His a cool enough head to sort out what just happened today.

Baihujinth had been watching, waiting. Preparing to meet and intervene with the next Junior Weyrleader to be chosen, but Baelyrth broadcast to the Iron the interjection of the Fighter, and Laanasuth's reaction. He coupled it with the information heard from His, guarding Jali (and by proxy, Armon) in her weyr, and informed the Senior Weyrleader.

Z'dyn laid a hand against X'vir's hip to still his newfound lover in the rectifications of Flightlust-incited desires, and halted him entirely. By force, if necessary, until the Iron could hold the conversation with His that absolutely needed to be held.

She pursues suitors to High Reaches, Z'dynMine. What do you wish to do?
Who's the one started it?
Vikareth. He is new.
Contact 'is Wingleader, whozit?
He's still somewhat new, MineOwn. The paperwork, I believe, was on your desk at some point, or it was meant for the Weyrwomen's approvals, I will have to bespeak Couineth and Laanasuth when she returns. Either way, it is a dragon's concern...


Baihujinth sighed, pressing Baelyrth to keep the Black from rending the Burgundy limb from wing.

You have heard Queen Couineth. Heed her. Those who do not, will answer to me. Privately, to the Gold already running damage control, Couineth, once she has returned, we and Ours will need to speak, naturally. This will no doubt bring conflict. Please let me know when it is best for Mine to attend. I will be awaiting your word.

Baelyrth's fury was raw and unabridged. He was seconds from latching into Vikareth's falling frame, when Couineth's words and the sheer will of the man he was bonded to stopped him cold. Veering away, he arched up through the air and regarded the Gold Queen until she'd stopped the fall from the skies, the verbose Black opting for silence over anything else.

"She will cause turmoil, no less," V'ael finally spoke. "Many males were wronged, but none so great as those too dimglow to respect a Queen. They will learn. This will be a hard lesson, but I doubt they will do so again."

There was sweat beading against his brow - proof his fight with Baelyrth was no simple or easy one. The Black was livid, he was FURIOUS, because now there would be eggs sired by an outsider, laid to hatch on their Sands. But he had enough respect for Laanasuth, obviously, to know she would not choose lightly. Dalibor's present males had been found wanting, and there was no doubt among those she knew much better, there would not be.

They would just have to wait and see how it went from there.

Z'dyn sighed heavily through his nose - but the choice wasn't his or even Jali's to make. It belonged to the Copper, and it was her decision that would be made as far as what suited her. He only hoped that the between journey back, if she did as much, wouldn't render more eggs dud than non. They couldn't exactly afford tiny clutches at the moment, but it was what it was.

He dragged X'vir back down against him, unsatisfied for the moment by an as-yet-incomplete romp in the furs. There would naturally be much to speak on, but for now, Z'dyn's attention was held by something else. Laanasuth still had to choose, to mate, and then to return home. He had a candlemark or so, he suspected.

"She's going to cause a fuss," Armon sighed. "But I don't blame her. She has every right to be picky, and if she didn't like them, then she didn't like them. I just hope whoever she chooses, doesn't come here looking to start a riot or throw the baby out with the bathwater."

Armon was there when and if she still needed him, and once Jali's needs had been met, he settled into bed to hold her there against him in silence until Laanasuth returned. He assumed Couineth and Baihujinth, and their respective bondeds, had things well in hand.

Until Laanasuth returned, nobody could really do anything. It all depended on how it went.

Baelyrth, without any verbal acknowledgement, followed Laanasuth between to keep watch. At Dalibor or no, he was still concerned about her protection, and wanted to ensure nobody else made a leap to either force catch her or injure her.

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

That was the thought racing through Fayranath's head as he watched the foolish Burgundy try and force their Queen's choice. He deserved everything he got, the Bronze thought, hissing in distaste as he darted closer, ready to assist the Copper with the issue if she needed it. Not that he thought she would, and he was not wrong. No, she had it well in paw, and Vikareth paid for his arrogance in ichor.

But then...

NO! The Copper was gone, insulted so much by the Burgundy's attempt, by the lack in some of the males' responses-was his own one of them? he thought, troubled- that she felt she needed to look elsewhere. Dalibor had failed her, failed her immensely...

Come back, Fay. There's nothing further to be done. The quiet, calm voice of his Mine echoed in his mind, and he hissed, fighting the will that backed it for the first time in his 30 Turns of life. NO! He insulted her! He deserves to die! the Bronze hissed, lunging at Vikareth, even as one of the Fighter's own hue tore into him. Come BACK, Fay! The will bore down, over-riding anger, forcing itself on the proud creature. Then Couineth appeared, only reinforcing the command with her own. Snarling viciously, Fayranath angled his flight away from the falling male, tempted to disobey even the Gold in his fury over the insult. I know. But he will pay further for his mistake, and you know it, love. He has already paid in pain, but he will also pay in shame. Z'dyn and Baihujinth will see to that, as will Rayna and Couineth. And no doubt Jali and Laanasuth will also have their say. He has done the unforgivable.

Dark hide flashed as Fayranath shifted his flight upwards, continuing to eye the falling male, who's hide now was ripped in so many places, not only from Laanasuth's talons, but also Falkreath's. So tempting to place his own mark on the male's hide, but he did not wish to offend the Weyr's Queens any further by being disobedient to them. Growling, colorful curses spitting from his mind to his Own's, the Bronze roared his fury, his frustration, to the sky, then moved away back towards his Weyr and rider, no longer trusting himself to obey...

Xerocleth's roar split the sky, though even that was likely drowned in the cocophany of fury around him. He was not offended that Laanasuth had not liked his answer. Though she aught to know well enough that words were not his domain. Still, it was her heart they must win and if she was displeased, that was her choice as well. It was not the first time a queen had dismissed him and no doubt it would not be the last. He wasn't so petty as to let it bruise his pride.

No, his anger was for what happened next. He was furious with Vikareth for his actions. How dare he touch Laanasuth unbidden! Xerocleth had not thought to look for aggressors among their own ranks or he would have been more attentive. The failing was as much his as the idiot he was ashamed to share color with. And yet it was what happened left that angered him more than anything else.

Laanasuth left.

What madness was that?! Xerocleth's eyes blazed with fury. How dare she?! To speak of respect, of working together, and then to flee simply because one foolish, young idiot could not accept a loss? How could he respect her now? When she had turned to others outside their home for her choice. And she called them childish and immature. He clenched his claws in anger. She was as much a traitor as Vikareth. Neither were worthy of his time.

Then you are not worthy of respect, he declared privately with bitter sorrow, but she was no longer there to hear it.

Before Couineth spoke, Xerocleth turned his tail to the others and flew back to his ledge. He had wasted enough time and energy on this folly. Were he younger, he might have gone for Vikareth and demanded blood as payment for his slight. But it was not worth tarnishing his claws. He was done. He gave all his strength and loyalty for his queens and for what? Keth had left, and now Laanasuth. Even if she returned, he cared not. He would not waste time chasing her again.

Oth's rage melted through X'vir and the big rider staggered backwards as Z'dyn pushed him away. A bellowed roar escaped them both and as Oth struck out at the suitor that had ruined all their chances, X'vir swung a punch at the Weyrleader...

Then his eyes widened and he recoiled, stumbling backwards off the bed and rising up, looming and grim but with none of the unfocused expression he had previously had.

Oth, return to me. He is not ours to punish.

Angry, Oth bore his teeth at the burgundy, tail lashing as Couineth arrived. The dual command sent the brown Between and returning to Baijujinth's ledge, where he landed with an irritated growl. As quiet and stoic as he was, he had a vicious temper when it was roused. But his anger was not directed at the iron and he settled himself with curling up on a far spot, sucking up any sun he could.

X'vir, no better for wear with the flight having ended, turned his attention towards Z'dyn and heaved a sigh, flopping on to the Weyrleader's bed, drawing blankets up over him. His own lust was no so easily banished, but Z'dyn had a Weyr to tend to and X'vir could wait. He let his eyes fall shut, mind following the lingering races of 'lust and the intermingling of minds. He pushed his affection towards Oth and was met with the brown's in return.

"Suppose I should let you go... Do you want back up?"

Kuroth could scarce believe when a burgundy actually dared to try and force their queen's choice. The dark blue had certainly expected her retribution upon that burgundy. Yet what she did next stunned him, who did not easily stun. That same queen who he did indeed bear respect for did something that was sure to drop the respect of many of the males of the Weyr--and especially those who were chasing. She took the actions of one foolish, unworthy male and declared she would have none of them. She chose to between and choose a male of another Weyr, rather than those loyal to her who had done no wrong. To have another male, from another Weyr, sire the clutch for Dalibor. While the large blue might understand her anger at the burgundy who had dared to do what no male worth his hide would do, he could not fathom her choice to scorn all of them. It was a slight, and a grievous one. It was as though she lumped all of them together with that one who had slighted her. As if to say they were all unworthy. That wasn't something he could respect, and he was sorry to have to feel any negativity about Laanasuth at all. Yet her decision was not, in his estimation, a wise one. She had effectively slighted each and every male present in this flight, along with her Weyr. Still, he knew that her actions would not be without consequence. He was hardly impressed, and yet if that was how she wished to have it, it was her flight, and her decision.

He noted there were other males keen to punish the foolish burgundy, yet while he understood their anger at being denied Laanasuth's possible favor, he felt it was beneath him to do that which was not his place to do. Still, actions, consequences. He could not say it was undeserved, yet it served no real purpose in the blue's mind. It could not be undone, and the burgundy's shame would be punishment enough, so far as he was concerned. He had certainly shamed himself, and Kuroth was sure it would not go without being dealt with. Z'dyn and his Iron Baihujinth led strongly. There would be shame. There would be punishment. Yet while he thought the burgundy a fool, and his flightlust certainly raised his ire and his own emotions, it would not come from his claws or fangs.

'Shells, darling, I'm sorry. Good on you, though. No need to to add fire to those flames.'

X'ayr was proud of Kuroth's choice not to attack the burgundy, and grateful to be partnered to so solid a dragon. Still, shardit if it didn't blow with everyone so angry he wondered if he'd find himself a partner at all!

Z'dyn didn't so much as flinch away from the strike towards him - his palm caught the incoming blow, fingers curling around X'vir's fingers and drawing him to stand down only to have his lover stagger backwards. Zeke's hand tightened, and dragged him back.

It would be some time before Laanasuth chose, and then there was any discussion it required with High Reaches. And then her return. He'd have plenty of time to take care of things on his end, and with that, X'vir's inquiry of letting him back up was answered with the weight of Z'dyn's body down against him. Legs parted to straddle his company, and the curtain was yanked across to hide them from outside view and otherwise gossiping, prying eyes.

He could have sworn there was some semblance of a mistake to be made, that come tomorrow morning he'd be looking at an empty bed and wanting the companionship that a non-one-nighter tended to grant. Some part of him wanted to buck the indication that X'vir would be gone once the lust was, but the fact the Brownrider had fallen into bed with him instead of leaving once Oth had been turned down, had given him perhaps the first, faint glimmer of hope he'd had in what felt like an eternity.

Hands ran up X'vir's body, then down again before the mane of the Weyrleader's hair curtained around them and he hovered slightly above the relatively short-worded man beneath him.

"Not fer a while yet," Z'dyn murmured against the other man's neck. "Ain't done wi' you."

Baihujinth rumbled a low sound, somewhere between a growl and a grumble as His laid claim to Oth's behind the shroud, the Iron's long neck reaching out only to understand that Oth was relatively out of reach. Shifting, he got up and made his way over, flopping down within range of the other male and nibbling on his toes good-naturedly, in an attempt to make the other drake feel some sort of better.

She is finicky in what she wants, but it seems none gave her the words she wished to hear. You will find this is true of many Daliborian females, Oth. Do not take it to heart. Of all those who chased, I believe you and only a few others to be worthy of any sort of attention. You followed where she asked you to, this is what counts. Weyrs are not built on the taciturns of poetry and song alone. She chose a very loud, very conflicted Viridian over myself last time. Perhaps something to do with the company you keep, but we will know when she returns from across Pern, whether we are bested by a Fighter with this Queen, as we were with the one prior. He huffed. Either way, we will show her that not all of Dalibor's suitors are effectively useless at the politics of our home. You do not need her approval to support her. This is a lesson I have had to learn myself. Perhaps next time, you will outrank Z'dynMine. How amusing would this be?

Z'dyn was too busy to counter his Iron, this time.
