Benden had. Meant her harm, that was. Maybe it hadn't been about her specifically, and more about using her to hurt Fort Weyr, but it had still happened. Her being a Healer hadn't stopped them, and Pia wasn't convinced she was a good person anyway.

"Ryodath being safe doesn't make it okay though. More easily bearable for me, maybe but... Not actually better." And what if it was one of Byth's flights instead? What if Byth herself had been attacked? Magasuth had been in their wing; what if it didn't even need to be a flight at all to set him off? L'ir was one of the few people she was at least mostly certain wasn't secretly evil. If anything happened to Byth...

"I understand," L'ir said. Any loss for their weyr was a tragedy. And this one had hit close to home. Both Rannath and Magasuth had been theirs. Their wing was down two members now, one of them a good dragon and one...Well, L'ir had thought he'd been a good dragon, just a bit timid, as Byth was, "I wish there was a way to stop it. Maybe there's something the weyrlingmasters could teach to help young riders better control their dragons...I doubt Barlow or Blaze wanted their dragons to do what they did."

L'ir didn't know what that would be. He hadn't even been through candidacy and Byth had always been a mild, peaceful dragon, good to the core. There wasn't a force on Pern that would make her hurt someone.

Pia didn't know what Barlow or Blaze thought, but she hadn't had much faith in humanity these past Turns. Bidath she knew hadn't meant what he's done, had been out of his mind with fear, but Nornth and Magasuth? They were both guilty, and fully aware of what they'd done when they'd done it.

"Don't they already? I had the lesson, even though Ryodath is... not exactly violent." That was an understatement. Pia didn't think the little white was capable of violence in any way.

"I had it too but not everyone pays attention. Or maybe there's a better way of teaching it. I don't know," L'ir admitted. Tuckal probably knew more about containing a dragon in the midst of flight fury than he did, "Maybe Lexien should talk to Tuckal about it. Ever since that one flight where Serapheth made them fight, she's mostly kept her under control."

Sometimes a little too much, like when she'd kept Serapheth from her choice of mate. But maybe too much was better than too little if too little took lives.

"Barlow didn't seem the sort to fail to pay attention to lessons. She was always so... stiff." Pia hadn't known her very well, but she certainly hadn't seemed the type to shirk responsibility. Not like some people thought about their Wing, that they were all just trying to get out of the 'real' work of fighting Thread.

"And anyway, I'm not sure Tuckal is someone whose judgment can be trusted. For all we know, Serapheth just hasn't felt like being violent during Flights lately, and will go back to all her old habits."

"She also seemed to struggle with the idea of having a male dragon. Maybe she didn't absorb as much as she should have because she was resistant to the idea," L'ir suggested. He didn't know Barlow well enough to say but she made little secret of her beliefs. He'd worried about Magasuth when he'd thought the bronze was simply a bit fearful. He supposed it didn't matter now. A dragon who'd turn a flight into a battle wouldn't hesitate to stand up to his own rider if it troubled him.

"Of course we can trust Tuckal. She's been a good weyrwoman to us for a while now," L'ir said. This was exactly the sort of paranoia he didn't want to see take root. Tuckal had saved Pia from Benden. How could Pia now doubt her honor? "It's been a hard few turns but she hasn't turned into a tyrant or do anything that makes me doubt her commitment to keeping Fort a fair and safe weyr for everyone."

Pia had been resistant to the idea of having any dragon. They'd terrified her—Ryodath included, at first. The others, the ones who weren't her, still did. It had been clear from the outset that she would never fly Thread. That still didn't mean she had been excused from paying attention to lessons, and Barlow had to be held to the same standard.

"You mean aside from taking a Benden bronzerider to her bed? Because that's a pretty glaring issue."

"What Tuckal does in her private time is her own affair and has no bearing on her performance as weyrwoman," L'ir sighed. He remembered those rumors. Poor Gino had seemed like a perfectly nice young man, wherever he came from. He hadn't deserved what had happened to him, "I don't believe Gino was any particular threat to us and regardless, he didn't gain anything from beyond that...liaison in the baths."

Maybe one of these days the weyr would get past its interest in the weyrwoman's personal life. The only time it had been a problem had been with Monty, not Gino. And L'ir rarely heard any complaints about that.

"She knew what Benden had done. What their bronzeriders specifically had done. That she can't keep her pants on when it comes to pretty men, regardless of what they've enabled, has everything to do with her ability to lead." All another Weyr had to do to destabilize Fort was send a good-looking, smooth-talking man to distract Tuckal. It was impossible not to call that a problem.

"I'm sure if Gino was involved, Tuckal wouldn't have slept with him. She fought against them, remember? Tuckal isn't so fickle she'd forget that over a pretty face," L'ir promised Pia. He saw Gino sometimes wandering Fort. It was hard to say if he'd been a good man or not. Those things tend to be lost in the dragonless.

And Tuckal hadn't always had impeccable taste. Monty, after all, had abandoned her when she needed him most.

But there was a difference between an unreliable man and a wicked one and L'ir did not think Tuckal would overlook the former, "And I don't believe she did him any special favors because she fancied him. I don't recall the Bendenites ever holding any power here."

"Because Serapheth didn't rise at a time that was convenient for them to seize power. Tuckal's forced her choice on Serapheth before, and I'm sure they were banking on it happening again." And then Monty had abandoned her anyway. Just went to show how quickly changeable and untrustworthy people really were.

"He had to have known their aim in coming here. Therefore, he was a part of... whatever they were planning."

"That only happened once and I think it was more about preventing Wireth from taking power than promoting Sinanjuth. Besides, I'm fairly sure the consequences of that aren't something she cares to repeat," L'ir said. Someone should defend Tuckal. She tried her best and Fort hadn't fallen apart yet, "If Gino had been hoping for that, Blaze would have been the better choice. It wasn't a secret Nornth was likely the next to rise. Maybe they just fell in love."

Love didn't always make sense and it wasn't always practical and sometimes it was just a terrible idea. Elotte's path had always been going to split from his, no matter how many kisses they traded. That wouldn't have been enough for L'ir to let her go in those days he thought her the most amazing woman he'd ever met.

Maybe Tuckal had fallen in love. Shards, she probably had, Faranth knew she seemed gullible enough to. But Pia doubted the same could be said of the Benden rider. Not that his position mattered much now.

"If you need plates for the dining hall, you don't just make enough. You make more, because you know some will break, and some might even crack when they're being fired. Why wouldn't they go after both Nornth and Serapheth? Two chances are better than one, and they couldn't have known that Nornth would..."

Would live up to everything that was why Pia was afraid of dragons. And the others obeyed her. This was why she just... couldn't feel safe. Not around them. Not ever.

"They couldn't have," L'ir agreed. Nobody had. They'd written off her hatching as a tragic accident. They had thought Blaze would control her. They'd thought, they'd thought, they'd thought...L'ir hadn't believed she was a bad dragon.

Perhaps he should have listened to Byth. Byth had always been afraid of her. But then...Byth was afraid of a lot and L'ir preferred to help her overcome her fears instead of encouraging her to wallow in them, "But you also can't know that that was Jeremiah's plan or that he would have gone through with. Perhaps he was simply taken with Tuckal. Or maybe it doesn't matter if it he did have a notion of becoming senior weyrleader. He didn't succeed. He didn't even try. I like to think there's a difference between contemplating something terrible and doing it."
