[Event] Snowfall

The tallest peaks of the Weyr. There are frequent watch shifts, day and night. Many are on guard for when Thread falls again. The older Weyrlings occasionally like to race from peak to peak.

Standing on Kakarith's shoulders, Asherah gazed down at the Weyr in quiet contemplation as the first snow of the season wafted down around them both. It was Kakarith to notice the flakes first, and the pair of them had gone ot the highest point in the Weyr to watch it fall. This would be their first winter in their new home, and while Fort wasn't anywhere near Ista. It was already warmer here, even if it was snowing.

"Do you think it'll stick?" he queried to no one in particular, though his bonded huffed out a warm breath of steam into the air. Leaning over, he rested his chest against the dragon's warm neck beside his ridges, head coming to rest between his headknobs as the dragon stretched out his neck toward the ground and let his leaning rider slide up a bit. Had he been stretched out over the Bowl, it would have been risky--but there was no danger of falling far here. His hands lifted to rest beneath his chin, creating a buffer between his head and Kakarith's. "Winter bids so poorly for us all but the snow will never cease to be beautiful."

Genji positively despised this. Winter was one thing, but when it decided to start off soggy like this.... the least the weather could do was stay cold enough that the snow didn't melt! But as of now, the daytime sun turned everything to slush. He was already two scarves deep, covered up to his ears, but he still wasn't warm enough to warrant going anywhere outside for an extended period of time. Inside was dry and decidedly not as miserable.

"Miserable indeed." he mumbled to himself through the scarf he wrapped high over his nose. Less miserable, maybe, but definitely not pleasant.

A blue blur would zip and zoom his way through the cold air, fluttering and kicking up a lot of cold slush and snow. What the- Hanzo! You said no one would be here in this weather! Velocith pouted, letting his rider up and off.

"I did not say that. I simply said that it was unlikely that there would be people here." A pause. "...Least of all you, Genji. What are you doing up here...?"

Hmph! Well, who are you guys then? The blue would ask the bronze and his rider. I don't recall ever actually talking to either of you, and I'd remember that, I have a very good memory! A lie. So who are you two then, huh? I want names!

Having one companion on the fireheights hadn't been much of a bother, even if he hadn't really been expecting to see anyone up here. He did feel a little pity for him, he looked even more miserable than some of the people who had gotten to experience their first winter at High Reaches. Poor man. He startled when something blue dashed through his vision, squeezing Kakarith's neck in his alarm. The dragon himself merely rumbled, slowly lifting his head back up and letting his rider slip back down onto his--well, back.

Alarm apparent on his face as the blue suddenly began his speech, it was Kakarith who gently began to speak to the new arrival before Asherah could properly speak out. Tucking his forepaws up against his chest, almost taking on a feline "loaf" look to keep warm, the bronze politely dipped his head. My name is Kakarith, and this is my dear Asherah. We arrived here recently from High Reaches.

Genji had to sidestep the slush Velocith kicked up, giving a displeased grumble. Why was he here? He could be inside, in his bed, warm. But instead he was out here...

"I thought it would be less... wet. I wanted to watch the first snow." He hunched his shoulders, more of his face disappearing into his scarf. "I do not think I own enough warm clothing to warrant it, though. I am rather miserable."

Wow High Reaches? That's a decent ways away. Why would you come here though...? The blue asked, looking the bronze over and mimicking his 'loaf'position. He'd never tried it before, not like this. But he found it... comfortable. Relatively speaking.

"Heh I understand. I needed a moment to get away from others and yet here we are. I suppose this is better than a large crowd..." He'd offer up his scarf at least...

He just shook his head a bit.

"Thank you, but you should keep it for yourself. Though, you must remind me later to go about acquiring a third scarf for myself. Maybe a fourth... or something I can put over my ears." He personally thought he'd look absolutely atrocious in a hat, but it might keep him warm....

"Oh, the three of us? Er, five of us, rather.... I do think we are fairly quiet company. Though Velocith may be loud enough for all of us." He sent the blue a teasing look. "Hah! You and Kakarith remind me of felines, laying like that."

The strife within the Weyr was upsetting to my dear rider. They are not nearly as they once were, but there is a notable... tension. I would have rather stayed to assist, but I cannot deny him. Kakarith turned his whirling eyes toward Genji, but chose not to speak to him, instead merely observing him. It would be a lie to say he had not perhaps drawn inspiration from the small furred creatures, but it certainly helped to keep warmth in when it was chilled like this.

Asherah settled down on one of the bronze's forelimbs, watching the other rider and the candidate. "Maybe a fur-lined riding helmet?" he suggested after a beat or two. He'd need one anyway, if he Impressed.

"I'm no feline! This is just the easiest way to contain heat! Velocith snapped, eyes whirling reproachfully... He was just copying the larger dragon, as he was cold too...

"a fur lined riding helmet sounds amazing. As does a few more scarves..." Hanzo huffed, looking out over the edge. "The view up here is beautiful though... I'm glad I came here..."

"Of course not!" he laughed. "But... if you were perhaps covered in fur you would look more like a feline." He teased, lacking serious intent. It would be amusing to dress Velocith up in furs, but he imagined the dragon wouldn't like it much.

"A fur lined helmet would be so nice. It would keep my ears warm." Oh, that sounded so nice... Something soft and cozy... and scarves for keeping the cold from his nose and mouth.

"Ah... I should see if I can't pick one up. At least for this weather." He followed his brother's gaze, smiling. "I would like the view more without all the cold and wet."

A dragon would probably require a lot of furs... Asherah looked over the ledge, still leaning on his dragon as he watched the snow fall. It technically wouldn't be nearly as wet until the snow actually started to melt, but he could see their complaints. Or at least the reason for them. "It would be easy to find one, I would imagine, since they are popular with riders." At least the ones in High Reaches, where the weather was much colder--but the benefits of having furs for between travel definitely outweighed the negative of having regular clothes for flying.
