Well, What Now? [OPEN]

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.

Well, What Now? [OPEN]

Nobuwath wanted to be up on the Fireheights. She didn't know why, but the blue wanted to feel free as he had put it. Up here, I can show off my gloriousness. Nika looked at the blue and she chuckled. Well fine then, show off all you want you handsome beast you. This made the blue rumble, before he disappeared for a moment. On their way here, he had seen something shiny, and well, he wanted to give it to Nika. "Hey! Where are you going?" But before he answered her, he arrived once more with a shiny rock in his grasp and dropped it before her. No words were uttered as he laid down beside her, content.

The Weyr seemed much... smaller than it once hand. Both smaller and emptier. Fortran had made everything seem...

Cobol didn't really know. Better. Simpler. More open to her. Between him and Tsoth, they'd made her feel like things made sense. And now he was gone. Lost to Thread. She'd thought if either of them went that way, it would be her. She was a rider, it was almost expected. That sort of thing wasn't supposed to happen to wherhandlers.

She watched as a nearby blue brought a rock back to his rider. What an odd thing to do. Ordinarily she would have wondered why, but she hadn't really had it in her to wonder the past several days.

Tsoth, however, had no such reservations. The green was curled around her rider, but lifted her head to look at Nobuwath. What sort of rock is that? Is it something special? Some unusual property it possesses?

Nika knew that the moment she heard someone else show up, that there were going to be possible problems. She looked at Nobuwath when the green spoke up about the rock and she waited. No one knew that he gave her shiny things as a sign of affection, well, no one except for her that is. She loved that about him, even if they did have their own moments of fighting each other.

Nobuwath looked at the green and huffed a bit. Why does it matter to you what the rock is. His voice seemed t be a bit grumpy like, which was normal for when someone was trying to butt into his business. Nika held back her smile as she looked at Cobol. "Hey." Short and curt, true to her ways. There was no reason to hold a true conversation, unless it benefited her.

Why wouldn't it? Don't you just want to know what everything is made of? Why it's shiny when other rocks are dull? Why it's small when other rocks are big enough that the two of us combined couldn't move them if we tried? Tsoth wanted to know everything about everything.

Cobol nodded over at Nika. "Hey. It's um... Nice... Weather?" She tried. Fortran had always been better at this sort of thing. Tsoth was too. But she just felt lost when it came to other people.

Nika looked at the sky then back at Cobol and she held back a sigh, but the eye roll was shown. Typical "I can't think of anything good to say" question. Nobuwath snorted at her comment before her focused back on Tsoth. But Nika was focused back on Cobol and she gave a curt nod. "Yeah, great weather for it almost being winter."

Does this tie into why you ask so many useless questions? Nobuwath was not holding back the irritation that he was starting to feel from the green asking so many questions on something that didn't involve her. It did make Nika place a hand on the blue though when he moved closer to her.

Hardly useless! Tsoth protested. Why didn't everyone realize just how important it was to ask questions? How was anyone supposed to understand anything without asking questions? Important insights could come of questioning things that may have initially seemed obvious, or settled!

Cobol shrugged uncomfortably. "I don't mind winter, really." She hadn't really felt particularly summery of late. Maybe winter would fit her mood better, or at least give her better reason to wrap herself in blankets and try to hold things together.

Nobuwath just looked at Tsoth and rumbled in amusement that he, and probably just he, found in making the green protest. He looked her dead in the eyes, a challenge seeming to show. If they weren't useless, then people would ask more, and have more answers. But no one does, so yes, they are useless. His logic was his own, and whether it made sense to her would be proven shortly.

Nika on the other hand, was trying not to get agitated with the mess of a rider that seemed to be next to her. Granted, this was just Nika thinking Cobol was a mess, but it was making things hardly relaxing at this point. So just kept a hand on the shiny stone and she looked at Cobol. "Winter kills things and makes it difficult for us riders. But yet, others still seem to love it. Only, the only real people I talk to who love winter are depressed." She looked at the rock then at Cobol once more. "So, which is it. Do you genuinely love winter, or are you just depressed?"

Obviously they do, as I'm not no one. Besides, just because a thing is useful doesn't mean everyone does it anyway. Someone always has to be first. Who invented riding straps? That was someone. Besides, I don't decide which questions are and aren't going to be useful. I ask questions to learn. I can sort out use later. Tsoth thought every question was important—even those questions which weren't asked with the best of intentions.

"There's no Threadfall in winter. It's easier for us. Just maybe not for everyone else." Cobol considered the question she'd been asked for a few moments, and then nodded. "Um, yes."

If a dragon could endlessly roll their eyes, that is exactly what Nobuwath would be doing at the moment. Tsoth's questions were quite annoying to him, and well, he was starting to get a bit bored of this endless question. Is that why you ignored my question earlier then? He left that question for her there and instead, focused on Nika and Cobol.

"Just because there is no Threadfall, doesn't mean that we shouldn't be prepared either way." Nika replied to the fact before she let the other woman think. What was there to actually think on though. The answer was simple, yes or no. There shouldn't be a need for thinking. But, being the gossip person that she was, when the answer was yes, she had to know why. "Why? What could possibly be making you depressed. You have a dragon, therefore you have a purpose."
