Sisterly Concerns [Fel]

Rhea didn't know what she'd expected. That she could fix things. That she'd understand what was in her brother's head. That he'd still be the Quatre she remembered, just a little older and sadder. Whatever it had been...it wasn't this...emptiness.

She didn't know what to do and she wasn't sure he could tell her what he needed which meant it was time to ask for help. She knocked on the door of D'fid's office, straightened her skirt and hoped Fort's new Weyrleader wasn't too busy to spare a bit of kindness for her brother.

If he insisted he was too busy...She'd simply have to remind him Quatre had been his charge, that this had happened under his weyr's watch. Quatre was Rhea's brother and Rhea was ready to be as stubborn as she needed to be to see him okay.

It had been a long few months. D'fid felt as though he was going to end up permanently chained to his chair at the rate paperwork kept showing up. If it wasn't Fort Hold reporting that tithes would likely be short for some time, it was one of the Wingleaders giving him an update on their riders' statuses, or the infirmary asking for approval to ask the Healer Hall to loan a journeyman for the first Fall of the coming spring. There was so much, and all needed his attention.

No wonder Monty had basically broken under the pressure.

A knock came at his door, and he resisted the urge to tell whoever it was to come back in the morning. That he was tired and wanted to go to bed. Instead he sighed, straightened the sheaf of papers in front of him (as though making it look smaller would actually reduce the amount he had to go through), and wiped a splotch of ink off of one finger.

"Come in."

"Hi. My name is Rhea," Rhea said as she stepped in, refusing to hesitate. He was a weyrleader and an important man but Quatre was her brother. He couldn't fight for himself so she was just going to have to be strong for him, "Quatre is my brother. I need to talk to you about him."

She should have been here sooner. Maybe then it wouldn't have gotten so bad...But she'd had no idea how bad it was. Poor, poor Quatre who'd only wanted to have a dragon and make a better life and help people. He hadn't deserved this. Even if his dragon had hurt people...QUATRE would never hurt anyone and it wasn't fair or right that he'd ended up like this.

D'fid's eyes fell first on the woman's knots. A greenhandler. There hadn't been any problems with the wherhandlers lately, had there? He knew some of them had... strong opinions about Nornth, but even in the Flight's aftermath they'd kept fairly quiet, and of course there hadn't been any incidents at the Hatching.

But then... "Oh." His greatest failure. He'd tried so many ways to help him, but nothing worked. Maybe his sister could manage what he'd been unable to. "Perhaps you should sit down then. There's klah, if you'd like it?"

"Thank you," Rhea said with a nod as she took the offered seat and klah, relieved to see he was going to help her. She had no illusions this would be a pleasant conversation but it had to be had. She couldn't help Quatre if she didn't understand him, "I'm sorry to trouble you like this but..."

The air hung heavy with all she could ask. D'fid surely knew exactly how Quatre was, "Has he gotten any better? Is he getting worse? Does anything help? I had no idea it was this bad..."

She hadn't known for so long he'd lost his partner at all. She should have fought harder for him instead of simply imagining he was happy somewhere else. Maybe then he would have stayed more a part of the world, if he knew it still held people who cared about him.

"Your coming here does not trouble me," D'fid answered. He couldn't say that it was no trouble at all; Quatre's state did trouble him. The fact that there seemed to be nothing he could do to help troubled him. But if his sister could do what he couldn't... he'd take as much time out of his day as he needed to for that.

"I wish I could deliver better news but... I don't know how to help him." He hadn't known how to help Lexien either. "He rarely shows interest in anything that I've seen, and whether he's around dragons or not seems to make no difference. He's also developed a temper I never saw in him... before."

"Quatre? But he's never had a temper. He has such a good heart. You must know that," Rhea worried. She couldn't imagine him being cruel. Or getting angry at all. He'd looked so, so numb the last she saw him. Perhaps she should be glad to hear he felt anything at all but...

It wasn't the Quatre she'd know. He wasn't bitter or hateful or numb. He was a good person to the core, "Are all dragonless like that? Is there anything that usually helps?"

It was a stupid question. Was there anything to be done- someone would surely have done it. Even if Quatre's loved ones weren't here...he was a person and clearly in pain. She refused to believe the entire weyr would have simply left him to suffer if there was a simple fix.

"I know," D'fid said heavily. He sometimes felt as though most of the Weyr had forgotten that by now, that Quatre had never been a bad person. That in poisoning a dragon who had only been confused when she'd hatched that an innocent kid had been harmed as well. "But there are things that... change a person. The Quatre you knew is still there, somewhere, but I don't know how to find him. I don't think Quatre knows how to find him."

He shook his head at her next question. "It affects everyone differently. Some people completely shut down and withdraw, some attempt to pretend everything is normal, some lash out... Basically, dragonless people are as different from each other as anyone else is. But... no, I can't say there's anything that usually helps. Time, sometimes, but I know that's not the type of answer you're looking for."

"They broke him," Rhea sighed. She couldn't look at Quatre as he was now and think he was the same brother she'd always loved. She missed him so, so much. It hurt to see him like this, "I don't know if I can find him either. Do you really think he's still there? He seems so...empty."

Rhea had never seen anyone so blank. Even had Quatre not been Quatre, it still would have broken her heart.

"I don't know if time will help Quatre. It's been two turns and he's so, so lost...Is there no hope?"

She would still take care of him. Because he was still her brother. But he wasn't Quatre, not really. And that was a tragedy for their family and for the world he could have done so much for.

D'fid wished he knew what to say. He knew that there was no 'they' who had broken Quatre. Regardless of how his dragon had died, that was almost always how it went. Not to mention, Pellay seemed to have been acting on her own. It wasn't a vast conspiracy, regardless of what some of the stranger Candidates seemed to believe. It was just... one tragically misguided, undeniably evil person.

"He's still there. Lost, but not gone. Even Lexien after Quth died, sometimes, just for a moment, I'd see her there again before she slipped away. There's always hope. Two Turns may feel like a long time in the moment, but it's nowhere near enough time to give up."

"It feels so long and he was so alone..." Rhea said sadly. It was hard not to feel having his sisters with him could have made a difference, "But Lexien didn't really get better, did she? Not until she Impressed again. Does anyone find their own way back?"

There was something tragic about that- that riders could no longer be whole without another mind touching theirs. It made Rhea glad she was a wherhandler. Such a sacrifice these riders made, to take that risk and to voluntarily never be fully complete again without another...

"They do. But... few of them that do stay at the Weyr they'd lived at before. There's just too many memories." D'fid was sure that not all of them were painful, but when so many of them were... For them, it was probably easier to leave what they knew behind and start again somewhere else.

"I don't know why Lexien chose to stay. If it was the Weyrlings or that she'd spent all her life here... I don't know. And maybe more time would have been enough even without Mikazuchith. It's so up to the individual, it's hard to know."

"Our father and Quatre...their relationship was always difficult. Going home isn't an option for Quatre and he doesn't know anywhere else," Rhea explained solemnly. The weyr had been meant to be a sanctuary for him, somewhere he could finally be happy. It had all gone so wrong, "Would he do better away from weyrs altogether? Or at least living at a different one?"

She could find them somewhere to call home. Rhea had just arrived at Fort. The place held no particular attachments for her. She was here for her brother and if he needed to be somewhere else? She would find a way.

"He might. But he also might not. In the end it's his choice to make, no one else's. But know that so long as he chooses to stay here, I will make sure that whatever can be done, will be. If he wants to stand as a Candidate, he can. If he wants to stay far, far away from all dragons, then he can. If he wants a job to do, he'll have one. And if he isn't able, or isn't always able, then that's fine too. But I do know that having something to focus on helps. Lexien had the Weyrlings, and Esther has been guarding Tuckal."

Neither had been particularly effective all of the time, but D'fid was fairly certain that it was better than having nothing at all.

"I can't promise that another Hold will have the resources to help him. Ordinarily I'd say Fort would given the proximity to Healer Hall, but with the recent fires... But the other Weyrs certainly would, save for maybe Semaca, which has its own problems. And Benden... I don't trust Benden."

"Has anyone tried suggesting a job to him? When I found him, he was just...wandering," Rhea said. He might not be a weyrlingmaster or an ex-weyrleader but he was still a person with value, "He used to help around the hold and he did make it across Pern. He can contribute. Maybe I can steer him towards...well...anything..."

At least SOMEONE was trying to help him. Even if whatever they were doing was clearly not enough or Quatre would be better by now.

Rhea nodded and filed away D'fid's analysis, "Benden seems to be in the midst of its own internal difficulties right now and the last thing Quatre needs is more chaos. Semaca also sounds from all accounts a rather odd place, which also seems counterproductive. Perhaps Healer Hall itself could be a good place for him to recover? Or are they too suffering from the recent fires?"
