Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Red Ingoth

Upcoming Hatchings:

Winter is in full swing as the Northwest reaches the middle stages of the cold month, and Dalibor, taking full advantage of a crackdust filled break in Threadfall, is back at it again. Delving into the Southern ice and snow, they have paired with Grove Weyr to fully explore the lands they only slightly uncovered the previous turn during the Jungle Expedition. This, however, will not be a warm and relaxing waltz through the woods; although was it ever that to begin with?

Wynmuri paced anxiously. She had asked Rider if she could pair Quartz with Northdawn some time ago. It had seemed like a natural thing to benefit the Weyr. Icehowlers were highly prized still and very useful companions. But what if something went wrong? What if they needed a healer? Did any of the beastcrafters even know how to handle this? She knew she was being silly. Icehowlers had been populating Dalibor long enough and they even had several of the Northern people here she could ask. Besides, they were very similar to canines and they had been breeding those for centuries. Still, she couldn't help but feel nervous.

Wynsk, for his part, was fascinated by what was happening. Quartz had claimed a back corning of their room and filled it with blankets and furs for this day. While his handler paced and watched anxiously, he leaned close until Quartz growled and warned him off. It really was interesting. Humans never let him see the process this close and the lack of eggs was truly curious. They looked so frail and helpless without an egg to protect them. What an risky process. Whers did it so much better. Once hatched they were mature enough to make their own choices. These little bundles didn't even have their eyes open!

Finally, Quartz gave a tired sigh, licking the last of her puppies as they curled in to nurse. Four healthy pups. Wynmuri let out a breath of her own and beamed. "Good job, Quartz!" she cheered with relief. She patted the new mother gently. "I knew you'd be a great mom." She glanced at Wynsk who was still watching with great interest. "Why don't you let Rider know Northdawn is a lucky dad now!"

Wynsk wasn't sure 'lucky' was the right word, given the offspring looked ugly and useless as far as he was concerned. Still, he reached out to Ridesk politely. 'Quartz hatchlings come,' he declared. 'Northdawn father now.'

We missed it.

Ridesk, I doubt Quartz would have appreciated you there with your snout right up in there trying to get a good view of her having her pups. It isn't some grand mystery.

If no mystery why Ridesk not know how it happens? Not see how it happens. We missed it, Rider too distracted by family. So many distractions. Disdain was clear in her mindvoice as they made their way to Wynmuri's wherhole where he assumed she would be with the new mother. He'd brought along some hearty cuts of meat from a herdbeast and a thick leg bone for Quartz, he knew North enjoyed gnawing on them from time to time. Anything he could think that the new mother might like and that might endear her to him a bit so he could get a peek at the pups.

North trailed alongside him, occasionally sniffing towards Ridesk on the opposite side as if she smelled funny. Of course she did smell funny, she had been getting into different plants in the area around the Weyr trying to figure out if any of them were useful for food, medicine, or dyes. How she would know anything about the latter two was lost on her handler but she insisted all the same. Nothing mattered to her when she had a wild hair, learning was her ultimate goal and if he was busy doing something else - like eating pies with his sister - Ridesk was unhappy. Reaching Wyn's wherhole he cleared his throat and gave a short tap on the stone wall.

"'Lo? North came to see the pups if you think Quartz will let him around them. If not I'll send him off to do something else. I admit I'm a bit curious to see them as well, are they as cute as I imagine they'd be?" He remembered how cute, if not big, North had been as a pup. How many of the litter would take after their father? Rider didn't know and while he doubted his 'howler cared much one way or the other he thought it was only right the large northern canine tag along; unless he wasn't welcome of course. "Brought her something to snack and chew on as well."

Wynsk see? Ridesk want to know all about. Describe how it happen. No egg like wher or dragon or firelizard. Rider told so. How come out? Already the questions were starting and unfortunately for the black they weren't likely to let up anytime soon.
