Not to be outdone by the ground-bound copper, Copper Laanasuth took to the skies the very next day - though her flight was not as cut and dry as the wher's run had been.

"Hellooo!"

Felrin had been sent in this general direction to find the alphahandler to inquire about being a wherhandler himself. He'd become promptly fascinated by the ugly creatures and was quite taken with the idea. Which meant he had to find this one particular woman. Which was easier said than done when one had next to no knowledge of the tunnels of the Weyr.

He'd hitched a ride to the Weyr on the lumpiest blue dragon he'd ever seen, complete with a blind rider. Which was probably for the best since the dragon was so very unattractive. Then he'd begun his quest.

It could have been going better.

"I'm looking for a Norla? Norsk?" Wandering around talking to himself would surely bring the intended result!

Head down she was doing her best to blend into the background of everyday life, not wanting to be noticed or remembered by any. She’d dropped off laundry to one of the wherhandlers’ wherholes and was making her way back down the corridors when a man’s voice drew her from her thoughts. All she’d heard was the name of who he was looking for and mistakenly she’d thought he’d asked her if she was Norla. Eyes widened, a practiced look if ever there was one, as she regarded the man. ”U-um no… no you’re in the wrong court.” Somehow he’d found himself near her in the green court when he needed to be in the gold court, where the Alphahandler’s room was. Making a ‘follow me’ motion the mousy woman walked past him into the large cavern that separated the court they were in from where they needed to be and she pointed across the expanse. ”That way, follow that small corridor ‘til you reach the entry of her wherhole.”

Leaving the man to his own devices she scurried away, once more content to blend into the background unseen. A few minutes later once the man had his bearings he’d likely find himself in the right area, if not at the right door at least. Hearing someone calling out the bronze’s head lifted from his stone couch and he crept for the door while Norla was busy looking over hides that needed to be sent out. A number of handlers had put in for transfers and there were new candidates she needed to look over, the work was never ending it seemed. Norsk pushed the door open in order to investigate, stopping just short of Felrin with a curious gaze. Be want see Nor-la be coming with Norsk.

Realizing her wher was speaking to someone and no longer in her room she looked up rather puzzled. Who is it?

Not know, find out to-gether.

He heaved a sigh and thanked the handler, moving along in the indicated direction. These tunnels were like a maze! Was he sure he wanted to live here? That was a silly question. It was a constant thrill of discovery and the potential for adventure! Right up Fel's alley!

"Oh!" He exclaimed when the massive wher appeared. Nodding, he trotted after him, thanking the bronze without hesitation. "Hello! Yes, I, uh. I'd like to become a candidate?" That sounded right, didn't it? Should he introduce himself? Probably.

"Felrin's the name. Smithcraft. Glass, specifically. I'm interested in the fine creatures you have here." He looked at Norsk with something akin to admiration. "I'm quite the fan, you see. They're hardy and handy and I'd very much like to help out more than I can now... And I'm rambling." He grinned and shut up, flashing white teeth to Norla without pause.

"I was told you were the one to talk to," he added lamely. "I hope I'm not interrupting... Too badly." Because he was interrupting, clearly.

Nor-la be best for help with new candy-doot. Norsk mused as he led the man into the large area of Norla’s wherhole that acted as her office. Personal belongings and her bedroom were tucked neatly through an opening to another large room and hidden behind a veil made of thick hide. Tapping the hides she had been looking over on the desk to straighten them she sat them down in a neat pile while regarding the man with a curious gaze. As introductions were offered Norsk slipped further away from the man and settled on his haunches next to Norla’s chair. Nodding as he spoke Norla finally stood and swept her hand towards the other side of her desk. ”Please have a seat.”

Picking up a scrap of hide and her quill she dipped it in ink before setting at work scribbling down the man’s credentials. Name, rank, which crafthall he hailed from. Of course he’d been vetted before being allowed to reside in the Weyr in the first place but there was more to do now that he was interested in whers. Her whers. Shaking her head as she wrote she didn’t look up at him until she was done, ”Just going over reports. Boring things really but necessary.”

Far more paperwork had found its way to her desk now that Nevitheran had applied for a transfer. Eastern would not only be receiving Dalibor’s lone goldhandler but a redhandler as well. The only true comfort she had was that soon their ranks would be bolstered as all the wherlings matured; they would only be without a queen capable of clutching for a handful of seasons. Still she worried about the wher program’s future - it was hard to take in candidates knowing that it may be turns before they had another substantial clutch. Relying on tiny clutches with potentially only one viable egg from cyans and greens was no way to build their numbers as a whole. Something would have to give somewhere and she hoped it would give soon.

They’d gone from such great luck with the queen egg arriving from the south hatching out a copper to such poor luck with illness claiming the lives of a number of handlers and their whers with transfers taking the rest - it wasn’t only her beta she was concerned about leaving as there were even more transfer papers beneath that one. Life moved on but she had to consider how all the losses were affecting the prides and begin interviews for a new beta, or two. That would come with time. In the here and now she had this fresh faced man to consider.

”Handy in what ways? What do you feel you can bring to the wher program should you Impress?” If she came across as gruff it was unintentional and she quickly followed her questions with a smile so as not to be too offputting. ”Would you like juice or klah?”
