Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass
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?

Ijo stood beside Isk, the Brown settled on his haunches beside His as the Wherlingmaster cleared his throat. A feast had been prepared for the Weyr proper, as well as Crescent and Western Holdfolk who wished to attend; though there wasn't as spectacular a fanfare for new Handlers, as there was for new Riders.
Even still, they were Ijo's wherlings no more, and he felt a crack in his voice threaten to raise to his lips as he addressed the crowd.
"Good evening, weyrfolk, holdfolk, Riders and Handlers, family and friends. We've convened tonight for a very special occasion, no doubt that all of you already know. I have before me thirteen brand new Handlers, all of which have weathered the process of Impression, wherlinghood, and life. All of them faced their own unique challenges, and took in stride every difficulty and lesson I have put before them, coming out stronger for the show of effort. I am proud of each and every one of you, and I look forward to working with you in the future, as does hopefully the Weyr and Holds you will be serving.
When I call your names, please approach to receive your new knots. The assignments are as follows - Oreanda of Bronze Osk, and Carrolly of Red Carrosk, you will be joining Alpha Pride. Kelah of Grey Kesk, Galya of Cyan Gask, and Runner of black Rusk, the three of you are assigned to Bravo Pride. Charlie Pride will be getting Liamaedra of Iron Liask, Riyd of Cyan Riysk, and Yoris of Red Yorisk. Irrin of Cyan Irrisk, and Vinlos of Cyan Visk, you will both be going to Delta Pride. Epsilon Pride will get Dabriye of Blue Dabrysk, and Einon of blue Eisk."
He turned his gaze to the final of his former wherlings.
"Brandy, you and Blue Brask will be returning to Western Hold, to help patrol there, so you will need to pack your things after the celebrations have concluded."
Isk pushed up off his haunches, chuffing at his former charges and giving Osk an especially 'you had better behave' sideeye. He greeted each wher as Ijo called them up, the human of the Brownpair handing the respective Handlers their new knots, and shaking their hands with a quiet-spoken 'congratulations'.
"Please report to your new Prideleaders first thing tomorrow evening. However, please enjoy the rest of your night tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the new Wherhandlers of Dalibor Weyr - and Western Hold!"
Applause rippled through the group, and he joined the crowd in offering a proud sound between the claps of his hands. Isk moved down and off the platform, going to investigate the meat table to see if anyone had dropped anything.
Ijo slid into a seat, his klah pulled to him when a weyrfolk brought it over. The offer of food was politely refused, and he sighed softly, watching his former wherlings migrate across the room to various groups of family and friends.
Isk's sad. Why.
Because they're all gone. Empty nest, I suppose.
Ijo not feather-thing. Why think nest empty. Is dumb. Jafask maybe not take next class, maybe Isk and Ijo have. 'Nest' not be empty long, Isk think.
We'll see. It's their turn next.
Isk's need person, spend time with.
I have you, that's all I need.
Worst liar ever, Isk's is.
Ijo tried to rebuke him, but the Brown was right. Ah, well. Such was life. He sipped his klah, and watched the interactions of people in the crowd.
