The Expedition of the previous season proved to be far less dangerous than possibly any before, with a handful of newly discovered species, and plenty of wealth in the way of resources.

@Leo ; W'rone

It was a lovely autumn day, rukbat shining brightly in the sky overhead, and cottony white clouds showed nary a sign of grey. Talivor walked along the beach, carrying his shoes in one hand, and holding tight to the strap of his guitar that was slung across his back with the other. He liked the feel of the soft, white sand underneath his feet as he walked along the shore. Casting his gaze out over the water, he thought he spotted dolphins breaching the surface, and smiled. Dolphins were fascinating creatures, weren't they? Then, he spotted something else, further up along the beach. The unmistakable form of a dragon landing. From where he was, it looked like a grey, though it could very well have been a pale black, couldn't it? Certainly too small to be an iron!

He allowed his feet to carry him, unhurriedly, to where that grey was, and soon spotted its rider as well. Waving and calling out so that he wouldn't startle the pair, he greeted them.

"Hullo to you, dragonrider!" This, to the young man. It wasn't always looked kindly upon to speak to someone else's bond, until you knew if they were amiable. Still, when he got closer, he gave the grey a smile and polite nod, to acknowledge it and not give offense. "Lovely day, isn't it?" The Harper gazed skyward, eyes narrowing ever so slightly at the brightness, and then back to the young man. Probably a little older than he was, but not by much. Talivor was very good with ages, and he thought he might even know a name. Yet he'd leave it up to the young man to confirm.

It was different, being a dragon rider, rather than just a harper along for the ride. Before he had met Sanarth, W'rone would have focused merely on the cold shudder of between, because the destination had meant more to him than their moments aloft. Of course, now that he knew what it was like to dance amid the clouds, he could never go back. He could spend all of his days just like this, gliding through the air, without a care in the world. Too bad the peace couldn't last forever. 'MineOwn, shall we take a break?' The yellow's sweet voice brushed through his mind like a feather on the breeze, although this particular feather had no trouble capturing his thoughts. 'The water looks lovely today.' W'rone peered down from behind the lenses of his goggles for confirmation of his dragon's words, leaning forward as he did so. 'Well, I suppose it does. Okay.'

Sanarth dipped down as soon as his response was given, leading the dive with the tip of her elegant snout. She landed on the soft sand with practiced ease and hummed joyously at the small waves that lapped at her dragging tailforks. Her rider dismounted with no trouble at all, appearing to have mastered the subject with enough grace that he would not disappoint his lady, although he could not outshine a born Lord Holder. W'rone was just pushing his goggles up to the top of his forehead when Talivor came into shouting distance and he shaded his eyes with his hand to afford him a better view of the other man. Sanarth, meanwhile, was poised to meet this potential new friend and her hide gleamed under the light as she inched a little further up the beach. 'Good day, sir.' The yellow looked over the newcomer with inquisitive blue eyes while W'rone's manners kicked in. "Oh, hello there."

The rider paused, scratching at his cheek as the words clicked into place. "Yeah, it's pretty nice." For someone who was praised for his talent with the written word, W'rone was utterly lacking with the spoken word. Thankfully he had Sanarth there to coach him onward. 'And...' "...I'm W'rone, rider of yellow Sanarth, and I'm a Journeyman Harper as well. It's a pleasure to meet you...?"

@Leo

There was always great pleasure at being bespoken by a dragon. It had happened more often now that he'd come to reside at the Weyr. The dragons of Dalibor seemed a friendly enough lot, though obviously not all of them were keen on speaking to others who were not their bonded, and that they did not know. The same seemed to be the case with whers. Still, each time was just as delightful as the last, and brought a smile to the Harper's face.

"And good day to you, fair lady dragon," he returned with a flourishing bow. She was quite a sight, was she not? He'd yet to see a yellow dragon up close, and relished in the opportunity to do so now. As W'rone gave his introductions, Talivor had to suppress a small smile. His skills as a Harper were fairly good, and yet his real talent lie in his intellect, charisma, empathy, intellect, diplomacy and other skills that required one to speak to others. It was his primary focus. He greatly enjoyed assisting with the weyrbrat's lessons, and yet he was an individual who gathered all knowledge he could, and spoke to as many as he could. He was good at listening and observing. He could already make an assumption that Sanarth was the more outgoing of the pair, just by a simple first meeting.

"It's a pleasure to meet you W'rone, and you as well, Sanarth. I am Talivor, and, as you've noticed, a Journeyman Harper like yourself! I am most curious, did you Stands Impress your lovely partner?" He motioned to the yellow, favoring her with an admiring smile, before his gaze fell back to the other young man. He had heard that it was a common thing, here. Dedicated to his craft as he was, he was not entirely sure, although it would be a great honor, of course, if he should have liked if it had happened to him. His calling was as a Harper. A dragon both granted a certain kind of freedom after weyrlinghood, and in the same breath, took that freedom from you. He was content with his lot in life--more than. He felt privileged he was able to study as a Harper. Delighted he had his first posting here, at Dalibor, after walking the tables.

Normally he would wait to ask a question like that. It was not, perhaps, entirely polite to begin the conversation with a stranger in such a manner. Still, sometimes his curiosity still got the better of him. To see another Journeyman of his craft with a dragon fascinated him. Oh, he knew it had happened. At the first wher hatching here, apparently a much older Master had bonded a wher! Talivor was, of course, just as fascinated by this, as well. To think that even as a Master, one might Stands bond! He had no clue what his future held, and could not have said he wanted for more than perhaps a firelizard for himself. He had always loved the small dragon kin, and while he was in no great hurry, he thought he might attend a hatching and try his luck one day.

Talivor's question caused the yellowrider's brow to wrinkle in thought. While it was true that Dalibor had a reputation for having more impressions from the stands than any other Weyr, in his case, that wasn't what happened at all. But how was he going to explain to this stranger that he had made the innocent mistake of agreeing to candidacy without realizing the consequences of his actions? Not that he regretted becoming a dragonrider, just that the prospect had never been in his plans for the future. Little did he know how much his life would change as a result of his indifference. "No, I was a candidate at the time. They said I could write music still, so I thought...why not?" The man shrugged. "But Sanarth is my perfect accompaniment. The searchdragon was right." His brown eyes studied the other Harper in the hopes of picking up on that elusive tune the searchdragons must know to differentiate possible riders from the rest. Of course, W'rone wasn't a dragon and had no idea what he was supposed to be looking for, and if Sanarth knew, she wasn't telling him.

So maybe Talivor would Impress one day, or maybe he wouldn't. But as long as he was at Dalibor, he should be on his toes. The dragons knew.

'He called me lovely!' Sanarth trilled privately to her rider. Her opinion of Talivor was reflected in the soft green of her eyes, like a spring meadow, and she responded to his smile with one of her own. 'Where are you from, dear Talivor? Dalibor welcomes people from all over and each has wonderful stories of their own to tell. Although, I must confess a special preference for Harpers' tales over all others. Oh, I could listen to your stories all day if there was time!'
