Of Dreams and Dragons [Fel]

The center part of the Weyr. It stretches out from stone to stone. Grasslands stretch across the dirt, and there is a freshwater lake on the southwest side, near the feeding grounds.

Of Dreams and Dragons [Fel]

D'vir sat outside, still in her bright pink and overly full Gather dress. The Feast was still going on somewhere inside but she was tired of it all. Her parents' hugs and smiles and praise were starting to grate on her.

They had never been that proud of her when she was only Dhavir. D'vir might be quiet and cautious, but she wasn't stupid. Her parents wanted the honor that came from a rider child, even if it meant D'vir was going to die in Threadfall. It didn't mean they loved her.

She didn't want to see how much happier they were with her new position than they'd ever been with her.

Do you like parties? D'vir asked Cainhurth, who sat dutifully besides her. Because the party had been only humans and dragonets, and she'd been careful to keep him away from their two bronze classmates, Cainhurth had behaved exemplarily.

Maybe she could just keep doing that. If she could keep Cainhurth out of fights for a turn and a half, they could join a wing with no bronzes and then everything would be okay, right?

Within moderation. Socializing can strengthen the bonds between comrades at arms, but it can also distract from our sacred duty.

Against thread or against bronzes? D'vir had to ask.

Against all that is vile.

There had been a time where Flan wouldn't have missed a Feast for the world. A chance to meet someone important who might marry her, make it so that she'd never have to do chores again? How could she have possibly passed that up? But then Kajth had come along and ensured she'd never have a cushy life. She couldn't be Weyrwoman with a brown, and she certainly didn't want all the work that came with being Weyrleader.

Plus Kajth despised Serapheth so that was moot anyway.

However, now she found herself outside, watching the sky slowly fade from orange to black. Missing a social event of her own free will while Kajth lounged lazily in a patch of almost-warm grass.

It's because you've realized there are more important things in life, Butt Stallion. Things like fetching me some dinner.

Flan rolled her eyes. Go get your own dinner. I'm not touching raw meat ever again.

You could get some from that Weyrling over there. Look at that dress, she looks like someone dropped dye on a dandelion and never considered how stupid an idea it was.

You should have seen what I used to wear.

She stood, stretching. These days, her clothes had swung back to the relentlessly practical, though certainly nicer than what she'd once worn. She didn't think she'd worn a skirt in several sevendays. There just wasn't much reason to try to look pretty any more. Simply making sure she was clean was enough.

She glanced back over at the Weyrling. Leaving early for reasons other than simple exhaustion was definitely a bit unusual.

"Everything all right?"

D'vir blew a strand of hair out of her eyes and looked over at the woman. She was a brownrider wearing sensible clothes, with short hair and pleasant features. D'vir tried to summon her best smile, "I'm fine. I'm just...not really a party person, I guess."

She'd always liked Gathers, but Gathers didn't involve quite so many eyes on her. She wasn't expected to do anything at Gathers but stuff her face with bubbly pies.

Is your dragon one of the good or the vile? Cainhurth demanded. He hadn't learned how to read knots yet but knew from his rider's thoughts she was a rider.

"She's a brownrider, Cainhurth," D'vir said out loud for the rider's benefit.

Ah. Very good then. A pleasure to meet you, ma'am.

"No, I'm fairly certain he's vile," Flan replied with a shake of her head. Kajth was more than a bit of a pain, and exceptionally vulgar when he felt like it, which was often. Getting along with him was always a challenge.

She glanced over at the younger blue, not entirely certain why he would think that anyone was vile by default.

"Anyway, I'm not offended. I'm... accustomed to having a difficult dragon around."

"That's what he calls bronzes and golds- vile," D'vir explained, looking at the brownrider curiously. Most riders loved their dragons. They didn't call them vile and they didn't tolerate insults to them, "He thinks they're corrupting Pern."

I do not think, ma'am, I know. Just as surely as I know that if they good people and dragons of Pern unite, we can free our weyr and our world from their vile influence, Cainhurth declared, sounding proud and sure of his cause, My rider and I will lead the way.

"If you think bronzes and golds are the only problematic dragons, you're extremely wrong," Flan replied with a meaningful look in Kajth's direction. "And besides, people have tried that before. Getting metallic dragons out of power at Fort, that is. I think it's only backfired on them."

She shrugged a bit. She'd hoped that maybe Kajth could be a part of the Weyr's leadership; he'd come from a gold egg after all. However, he hadn't even remotely shown any interest in Serapheth, beyond making her life even more difficult. Her hopes of becoming at least Weyrleader had by this point been very, very thoroughly dashed.

Nobody claimed fighting the vile would be easy! Only that it is just! And they are not merely problematic or difficult. They are a stain on this world that must be removed, Cainhurth managed to make his words sound like a solemn pronouncement.

D'vir sighed. In all other respects, Cainhurth seemed an excellent dragon. But D'vir wasn't looking to lead a revolution and overthrow the existing power structure. That sounded hard and frightening and like a generally bad idea. Who would run the weyr after they fell? Where were they all supposed to go?

D'vir just wanted to get through weyrlinghood and not die in threadfall, "He started this as soon as his first bronze brother hatched. He seems...dedicated to the idea."

How did dragonets even get such fully formed ideas in the egg? And did they ever outgrow it?

But where's the fun in exterminating them rather than simply making their lives miserable? Kajth asked, looking curiously at the little blue. He sure was an unintelligent tiny thing, convinced he could actually change the world. And not to mention, thoroughly self-centered.

Flan rather pitied this Weyrling. Her dragon was trouble--and if Kajth was any indication, he would never get any better.

"Some dragons are just... like that," she explained. "They can be immensely stubborn. Infuriatingly so."
