Wedding bells ring out to celebrate the joining of Lord Callum to Lady Shuli. A grand gather has been put together with people from all over Pern coming to celebrate! Crescent is full to the brim with those who wish to show their support and those just looking to make (or spend) a few marks!

Copper Zelsk shook things up at the Copper Class graduation feast by beginning her run shortly after the knots were delivered to her handler. Bronze Osk won Zelsk's maiden run and now a sizable clutch lays on the sands hardening. 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. Offended by the force catch attempt of a presumptuous burgundy Laanasuth betweened to High Reaches Weyr where one of their dragons won her flight. Though she has returned to Dalibor and laid a large clutch for Dalibor's candidates the Weyr awaits the transfer of the dragon sire and his rider, Dalibor's newest Junior Weyrleader.

Ever the fashionably late one, Osario missed the hatching of the beautiful and resplendent Rivath. Something she would likely not feel too bad about once she heard of it. Reds were not exactly one of her favored colors of dragons. So violent! And so… Bold. Reds were hard to pair with. Maybe a trim of gold, or perhaps a warm brown would work. But the color was just so brash, it drew the eye instantly. Better as an accent, she decided, rather than a main component.

She was far more fond of blacks. Blacks like the one she rode astride, her hands held in leather straps, her hair whipping behind her, her voice rising in a laugh. It was exhilarating, wasn’t it? Flying in the air without a care in the world. Blacks and grays were good colors to work with. Though she had to admit she wasn’t fond of grey. It was such a wishy washy color. It had none of the black’s mystery. It looked… Well dingy, if not used correctly, and trust her, few used it correctly. No, black was where it was at. Anything could pair well with it, and there was no such thing as ‘too much black’. The more black you wore, the more serious and severe you appeared. It was good for some people.

Landing, it seemed, was far more nerve wracking than expected. She wanted to dig in her heels, as if it would help them slow down. But she trusted the rider and his wyrm. He seemed sensible and she doubted he would return only to crash his drake upon the earth. The landing itself, was, well not as bad as she had assumed. Sintharith was a dream, and N’tharon certainly knew how to handle a dragon. The pair were wonderful searchers. Osario was almost offended when she had to be re-searched, though she understood why. She had got as much information on Dalibor as she could, and had heard of the egg-smashing incident. It had left a sour taste in her mouth, and she devoted no more time to thinking about it.

Pack slung over her shoulders, she made her way to the Barracks where she was to live until she bonded. She had to admit, it was nice. Certainly it wouldn’t be like living in the caravan with her many siblings, but at least she wasn’t alone. She even had been told she would be having a roommate! Oh wouldn’t that be nice? Someone she could likely talk with and learn from. She wondered if her roommate had been standing long, she wondered if she had any stories to tell. Oh there was so much excitement! Plus the dragonrider who researched her told her there were still eggs on the sands! Ex-ci-ting!!!!

She quickly made her way into the room, knocking on the wall lightly before pushing the curtain a little.
“Hey, sorry to bother you, but I’m your new roommate. Thought I should introduce myself, maybe get my things put up. You know, the basics.”

She was curious. Would her roommate have any fashion sense? Or would Momma ‘Sario need to take her under her wing and guide her to the path of looking amazing?

While the idea of having a roommate might bother some people, Everane was ecstatic. She had been in her own room for as long as she could remember, and it was terribly boring. While she liked her stuff--for she tended to collect assorted things of all shapes and sizes--she also enjoyed having someone to talk to. She was sure that whomever she was roomed with would respect her things and she would, likewise, respect theirs. Shards, it was all going to be so much fun! Her first moment at the Weyr had already been spectacular as is, and there were real live dragon eggs on the Sands.

The girl was terribly embarrassed about her earlier freak-out. The volatile mind of the red had weighed on her, and so she had been hesitant to step out onto the Sands at Rivath's hatching. She had decidedly hung back, in the hatching cavern, trying to catch a glimpse of what she could. This had resulted in her having a meeting with Candidatemaster Al'dr afterwords. Hopefully the Weyrwoman didn't think she was a coward, and understood her hesitation. To hear the mind of a creature so bent on delivering pain and death... well... it was traumatizing, to say the least. She was trying her best to put it all behind her so that she could have a better experience come Sanarth's hatching. It was supposed to be soon, and so she had returned to her room for a bit of peace and quiet.

She certainly could have used someone to talk to right then, and so when Osario knocked, and then pushed through the curtain, Everane turned to examine the new individual. So this was her roommate? Frickin. Awesome. Were people at the Weyr always so fancy? There was an elegance to the others dress that immediately struck her envy. The girl confirmed the obvious, which had Everane beaming at her. "Can I just say how excited I am?" Her roommate was so pretty, and nice! Ah! "Hey, it's our room--spruce away. How cool is it that we're roommates? My name's Everane, but you can call me Ever." She was a ball of energy, rocking back and forth on her heels as she waited on a name. Had she been at the first hatching, or had she literally just arrived?

"Were you at the last hatching?" she inquired. A nervous chuckle exploded from her, and she nearly doubled over at the realization of just how scared she'd been. "It was a shit show, right?" Hopefully her new roommate didn't mind that she swore. She picked up the habit from Ruane, and it sorta stuck. Her potty-mouth was bound to get her into trouble someday, just hopefully not today. If the other girl hadn't witnessed the hatching she'd be more than happy to fill her in on the details!

When Osario walked into the room it was almost like she had always been there. It was obvious the young woman would always ‘own’ wherever she went. She wasn’t someone to steal the spotlight, but she was certainly worth noticing. The smile on her lips was ultimately kind and warm, though. That was it. She made the room feel warm and kind of cozy. It was one of her gifts, though it was one Osario didn’t notice at all.

“It’s delightful to meet you Ever, I’m Osario. I’m glad we’re roommates, I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun.” She tilted her head a bit as she smiled, shucking her bags from her hands onto the free bed at the other side of the room. Hands were instantly busy pulling out the few furs and blankets she had brought with her, layering them comfortably on her bed, tucking them in nicely. She listened to Ever all the while.

“Oh, no, I missed it. But I did hear of it! A red, right? Just terrifying.” She shuddered a bit her lips quirking in a slight frown. She didn’t like reds. They were generally too violent for her blood. Give her a kind, sweet little green anyday. That was better for her. She turned to face Ever and shrugged her shoulders.

“Frankly I’m not too displeased to have missed it. But that’s just me you know? It just didn’t sound like it was my kind of thing.”
Osario folded her hands in front of her, looking over Ever. She was cute, she reminded her of some of the caravan children she watched often. Cute and bubbly and full of energy. A slow smile formed on Osario’s lips. Maybe this wouldn’t be too bad. She had been afraid, at first, that a roommate would not work out for her. After all, she wasn’t used to being alone, and she’d hate if she got paired with someone dour. But Everane seemed like a perfect fit.
