Anticlimactic (Ignys)

Quinn didn't know what she'd been expecting from the Touching. Beyond...more. The eggs had been large and colorful and she'd felt them in her mind. But there'd been no grand moment of revelation and Serapheth hadn't attacked anyone. Whatever she'd been supposed to learn from it all, she was fairly sure she'd missed.

Maybe that meant there simply was no dragon for her this time. Which was fine. It would buy her one more turn in which she might still be able to go home, while still honestly saying she'd fulfilled her obligations to the weyr to the best of her abilities.

She hoped Lou Impressed though. She wanted it so badly and would be a good rider.

Quinn scrubbed the sand from her feet. What would be would be. Little point in dwelling on it.

Genji, on the other hand, didn't seem too displeased. Then again he wasn't particularly confident he'd impress this time anyway. It was a small clutch after all, and there were many candidates to chose from. His chances this time around weren't very high. The Touching, for him at least, was more about curiosity. He participated more out of his own desire to guess what the eggs could be.

He hadn't intended to run into anyone in the baths. He just needed to wash his face off. His scars were starting to itch from the dry air and heat. Scratching them wouldn't do any good either....

"...hm? Ah, hello Quinn. Tired of sand on your skin too?" he joked, stepping into the water.

"It really is hot. Wonder how they get it like that," Quinn said thoughtfully. The harpers claimed there was a volcano beneath Fort and that its liquid fire kept the sands warm. But that sounded like nonsense to her.

She certainly hoped it was nonsense. Two of her homes had already burned to the ground. While Fort Weyr might not be perfect, nobody deserved that.

"It gets everywhere too. I don't want to bring it back to my room with me," Quinn said. Because she wasn't interested in finding sand in her sheets for months to come, "Or to the rest of the weyr."

She'd certainly spent enough time cleaning it during chores to appreciate how much work went into keeping the place tidy.

"Inevitably, it'll get in. I suppose slowing it down here doesn't hurt anyone." he chuckled. "And I'm sure others will thank you for not dragging it in where it can get into everything."

He leaned down, splashing water onto his face and sighing a bit. He needed to wash his hair out too eventually... but maybe he wouldn't bother with that just yet.

"I feel like I burned my knees kneeling in the sand by the eggs. I'm sure the dragons enjoy it though." He hummed. The eggs too. He was sure the hot sands were key to healthy hatchlings.

"I'd presume so. They're dragons. If they didn't like it and wanted to lay their eggs elsewhere, Pern would see to it they could," Quinn said with a nod. She'd spent enough time at the weyr to know not every rider was malicious. What they often were was unconscious of their own power and unaware of the world outside their weyrbowl. If they wanted a farm for their dragons to clutch in, she had little doubt they would simply take it and not think too deeply on what that meant for everybody else.

There were plenty of holders out there who wouldn't even complain very much about it. Outside her own cothold, the traditional reverence of dragons and their riders held strong on much of Pern.

"Luckily we won't have to kneel on hatching day," Quinn said. She had tried to mostly crouch and so her knees weren't burned, but they certainly felt a bit stiff from so much time spent in awkward positions, "So...what did you think of the eggs?"

She was pretty sure that was the thing to ask after a Touching. It seemed like it would be on everyone's minds.

What did he think of the eggs?

He was quiet for a while, thinking about the emotions he felt when touching each egg. They were all different, though he felt several similar emotions from them. Crimson Mask and Banded Quill especially had very similar reactions to him.

"I think... I got a very neutral response from most of them." He smiled a bit, splashing his face. "Wounded Moon reminds me a lot of my brother when he was young. Always trying so hard, pushing himself too far sometimes, and so tired... I feel like that one will be very interesting. A dragon that pushes itself, despite its doubts.

The big one, Celestial Law... I didn't get to touch it, but it seemed to draw people in. Everyone looked like they had a hard time pulling away from it. I feel like that one has to be a gold, though I couldn't say what it will be like. Alluring, at the very least."

That seemed to be the theme. Rather neutral responses. Neutral eggs, with their own personalities. Serapheth's clutch hadn't even been that. There hadn't been reactions from them. They all were very neutral, and none of those eggs had chosen. Not all eggs did give those echoes.

"Neutral eggs happens sometimes, and it's not as big of a deal as people seem to think. The dragons will find their matches, no problem. Nothing will be wrong, sometimes baby dragons don't make their choice obvious until they hatch." She replied, sitting back in to scrub her legs down.

Forsk! Quinn hadn't realized Tuckal was in the baths too or she'd have picked something else to talk about. She blushed bright red. Even back home, you never spoke badly about someone's children in front of them. Quinn presumed the same rule applied to a queen's rider and her eggs.

"I'm sorry, weyrwoman. They're lovely eggs and we're lucky to have the chance to stand for them," Quinn tried to correct. Even if most of them had barely noticed her and a few seemed...troubled, there was some good in there. The ones that had ignored her had seemed sweet enough, "None of them responded much to me either though. Well except Celestial Law, but that one responded to everyone."

She was not going to offer any further opinions on the eggs with Tuckal right there. Because that was just asking for trouble.

"I've never been to a touching before. I've just heard that riders well...usually know. It's okay though. Most people don't Impress their first hatching I'd guess."

And even if she could maybe do some good in the weyr, it was okay if that didn't happen. She didn't need to change the world. She could lead a good, productive life back home as soon as there was a home to go back to. Surely it would be fixed soon. It had been nearly a turn.
