Red Cyanide

Upcoming Hatchings:
Amber Era

Western Hold welcomes new blood in the form of a young couple, Lord Holder Basasius and Lady Holder Baria. A grand Gather is being hosted by Western Hold to welcome their new Lord and Lady.

While the new Lords settle into Western there has been talk and speculation about the western continent's other Hold. It has been two turns since his wife's passing in the south, when will Lord Callum decide to take up a new wife?

Spring has woken an abundance of plant life across Pern with intermittent spring showers helping to sate the growth's never ending thirst. With the end of snow and cold comes Thread once more; Dalibor's wings have no doubt been reduced due to losses over the winter but none the less they persevere.

The days were getting cooler, but still warm enough that the waters of the lake were only somewhat cool. Vilane had every intention of going for a swim in said lake. He was done with chores, done with lessons, done with all things loathed and hated for the day. The time he enjoyed most was the time that was his. He hated being ordered to do menial chores. Hated the repetitious lessons that he could recite in his sleep. How long had he been Standing, and left to Stand while others had Impressed? He was too stubborn to give up. He had nothing else. His father was ashamed, and if he didn't Impress, and aged out...he had no clue what he'd do. Maybe try Standing for a wher. Yet he had always envisioned himself a dragonrider, on the back of a bronze, like his father. Or an iron, since those, two, were kings. Only, time and again, he was overlooked. To add insult to injury--even though he told himself there was something decisively 'off' about the strange dragons in Couineth's last clutch--a little boy and an over-talkative, awkward young man had been chosen over him. Was he not worthy of a bronze or iron? Or were they simply choosing the weak and unsuitable? He knew Z'dyn of Baihujinth to be a respectable and strong man. Should not his dragon's children choose likewise suitable individuals? Not children and annoyances? It was hard for him to stomach, being left to Stand. He would think of any reason for having not been chosen. He hated to think it was something to do with him. Still, Couineth's words haunted him, and he loathed that both the words of her, and her green daughter, stuck. A dragon worthy of him...to not let others control him...he shook the thought free.

He stood and looked out over the lake. There were others further down the shoreline. Dragons bathing. It was hard to be here, at the Weyr, and see all these dragonriders. To want to be one, and yet to not know if you ever would, but having believed in nothing else your whole life, so everything counting on it. What he needed was a distraction. The monotony was getting to him. Really getting to him. He couldn't exactly drink, or sleep with anyone. He hated having gone so long without that last. Even the first, he missed sorely. Candidate rules were foolish. Why, when he was a virile, perfectly healthy man, should he be left to take care of his own needs in that regard? He had been Standing since he was a child. Did they honestly mean to deprive people of that basic thing for the entire time they were candidates? It pissed him off to no end. Back at his other Weyr, he had not held off. He had not been caught, but his father had found out and had given him a lot of grief over it. Not since coming here had Vilane bedded anyone. It was maddening. He wished he might just find a way around it. Yet it was a smaller Weyr, and less chance to merely 'get away with it'. If they removed him from Standing, that would be more unbearable than four more turns of celibacy. But oh, how much he missed doing as he pleased!

Suddenly aware of someone approaching, he narrowed his eyes and turned to see a young woman. She must have been a couple turns younger than him, but she was without a doubt attractive. He'd noticed her in classes--shard it all, why did she have to show up when he was thinking of women? Bad timing. She had Impressed, though. To a green. Whereas he, Vilane, had not. Still, he hardly envied her a green. And greenriders...didn't they have a bit of a reputation? Fiery, many--or was it most? A flicker of something unreadable crossed his face, as he regarded her...
