Guard duty with the angry chihuahua [Atlas]

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.

Guard duty with the angry chihuahua [Atlas]

It was time for Peiko's turn on the fireheights. Of the rider duties, this was her least favorite. It was boring, and she often had company. And that company? Often annoying as forsk. As Tuncath landed, letting Peiko slip off of his neck, his rider surveyed the area. Someone was here, already. Guard duty with Negan? He wasn't exactly the most pleasant person, someone that Peiko didn't enjoy being around. Not that she had to be around him often. She only even knew his name from his reputation, after all.

She scowled at him, before giving him a small, reluctant nod of acknowledgement. "So I guess you're on the fireheights with me today, old man?" she asked, her crotchety nature showing in her voice.

Greetings, Tuncath said, but offered no more. No apology for his rider, no further pleasantries. A simple nod to the pair, and nothing more. Peiko recognized that saying hello was probably the polite thing to do, as her dragon had done. She did not give a forsk.

Negan wasn't partial to guard duty. It was boring as all forsk, and he knew it. He'd just have to get through it and deal with whoever was there with him. It'd be fine if one of two things happened, either a) he was stuck there with a friend, or b) both he and the other guy both kept their mouths shut and ignored each other.

When his fellow guard arrived, however, he knew that neither of those things were going to happen. He didn't know the kid who'd shown up, and she'd already called him old. Great start. Great start. "I was here first, so you're stuck here with me, kid. Just don't tick me off and we should be good for however long we're here for." He stood with his arms crossed, leaning back against Wireth. He was just waiting for something to go wrong at this point.

Hey, Wireth said back to the other dragon. He wasn't looking for a fight- er, wasn't looking for a fight right now. He just wanted to do his damn job and get this boring block of time over with.

Peiko narrowed her eyes. "Don't tick you off? Rude-ass prick." She was one to talk. "Are you TRYING to start something?" Was she trying to start something? She apparently didn't see it that way. If he started something, she'd finish it. She muttered under her breath--loud enough for him to hear, of course. "Asshole."

How dare he act like she was annoying, like she was bothering him. Like she had to manage herself. Very rude.

Tuncath merely fixed his rider with a disapproving gaze. This is unnecessary and inefficient. We are working with them today. At least TRY to take your duty seriously. He paused. Please. There. More polite. Maybe she'd listen for once, instead of butting heads with him. She, however, ignored him, but didn't add anything else, not yet, at least.

The bronze did not reply to either Wireth or Negan, however. He just turned his judgmental gaze towards them, inspecting them and wondering if they would be any help at all. Peiko's memories classified them as useless and boring, but that didn't tell him much. Would they do their duty? Or would they engage with Peiko, giving her more fuel to be a brat?

Now aren't they just rays of forsking sunshine, huh? Faranth, what's with kids these days? Do they all just turn into whiny brats when they Impress or is that just a her thing? Faranth... Wireth wasn't a fan of the bronzepair already. Great start, now he was gonna be ticked off the entire time they were up there together. Get over it, they're all brats. That's just how they are.

Negan raised an eyebrow while he watched Peiko run her mouth. "Yeah, you heard me, don't tick me off. You want this to go smoothly, kid? Then you better stop trying to start something. Just do your damn job and I'll do mine. It's simple." He glared at her when she called him an asshole. Was she right? Yeah, probably. Did that mean it didn't piss him off? Of course it pissed him off. He just let out a slightly over-exaggerated sigh and shook his head before going back to looking out beyond the Weyr.

Wireth looked over at Tuncath for a second, noticing that he was looking at them. He didn't like that. What're you lookin' at? He quickly turned his gaze to somewhere in front of him, not even bothering to wait for a response from the Bronze.

"Are you trying to pick a fight with me, old man? Just mind your business and forsk off. Just because you're bigger than me doesn't mean I'll let you pick on me." She glared at him. Peiko didn't seem to see herself as the instigator. As he sighed and turned away, she figured she'd leave it at that. Pleasant talk, right? "You were forsking weyrleader once, right? Looks like you never really learned how to talk to people. Aren't leaders supposed to, I don't know, be charismatic or somethin'?"

That wasn't pleasant talk. Oops. Well, she didn't really care.

Tuncath, however, just continued to watch the brown dragon and his rider. You, he answered honestly. He didn't care that the brown looked away. He was still trying to get a read on them. His tone, however, wasn't confrontational...though perhaps a bit judgmental. He didn't like what he was seeing from either of them...

Not that he liked what he was seeing from his rider. Don't get into a fight. You'd lose this one, anyways. Just be nice so we can do our duty, he told Peiko.

Negan sighed, this kid was gonna annoy the shards out of him every second he stood up here. "Y'know what, kid? Pickin' a fight with you is on the bottom of my list right now. I'm tryna mind my business, but someone her keeps pushin' on my buttons. And I sure as shards ain't pushin' my own damn buttons." Faranth, of course she'd bring up him being a weyrleader. It wasn't like Negan wasn't fond of his time as weyrleader, but it was always something for someone to grab onto when they were ticked off at him. "I was. And I did. And I am. But it looks like the creche workers didn't really teach you how to be when they were rasing you, huh? Sheesh."

Wireth whipped his head back to look at Tuncath upon getting his response. Now why're you doin' that? Ain't nothin' for you to look at over here, bronzy. Keep your eyes on the skies. Of course, Wireth didn't take his own advice and kept looking straight at Tuncath, planning on staring at the bronze until he stopped looking Wireth's way.

Peiko glared at him. "Alright, mind your business, then. It's not my fault you can't take some friendly ribbing without being an absolute bastard about it." Because, clearly, she hadn't done anything wrong. She grumbled a little before trying once again to play nice...which she could hopefully do a better job of, this time. "Anyways. What have you been doing since then? Anything interesting?" That sounded neutral enough.

Tuncath wasn't a fan of this brown, on his end, though he couldn't say he was a fan of how his rider was behaving, either. He was trying to get an accurate read on Wireth, and so far, he hadn't been very impressed. You shouldn't be so rude to someone who isn't antagonizing you, the bronze commented, keeping neutral. I didn't do anything but observe. He'd be happy to debate with Wireth, but he wasn't about to stop watching the other dragon, especially now that Wireth had demanded it so rudely.

You tell 'em, Tuncath, Peiko thought to her dragon.

You shouldn't be so rude to someone who didn't start by antagonizing you, either. Peiko ignored him.
