Candidate Norell - Open

Norell had been able to feel the growing minds within the eggs and they had responded to her. A handful had even seemed to like her. Surely that was a good sign or at least not a bad one. Were people incapable of Impression able to talk to eggs? It was too bad Norell didn't have anyone to ask.

She might have thought the weyrbred candidates over 25 were doomed to failure, but there had been multiple reports of Fortian candidates Impressing after aging out at Semaca or High Reaches, where the caliber of candidates was lower.

Hopefully, she would have her answer- and dragon- soon.

She sat with the other candidates and thought carefully about what she wanted to say. She'd liked the Sandalwood Informant egg, but she suspected it would be an unpopular choice and to say as much would tell her classmates more than she wanted them to know.

What did she want the others to think of her? Had some begun to talk and share their thoughts, Norell could have better guessed the right thing to say.

But it seemed everyone was waiting for someone else, so Norell tried, "The Titan Ram egg felt strong and the Hopeless Drifter egg seemed kind. The Drive-Imp liked me, but it liked everyone, I think."

The Titan Ram egg would make her a fine partner. The Hopeless Drifter was too gentle and the Drive-Imp was too small and bright. Norell knew herself. She didn't need a kind dragon and she didn't want one. But most candidates would so Norell was content to let them assume she felt the same.

As for the eggs themselves...if any did want her as a rider, they hadn't told her clearly enough for her to understand.

"There are some I would want to ride and some I wouldn't. If any want me? They didn't see fit to inform me, Norell concluded. Some of the eggs in this clutch were clearly superior to the others. There were only two that were entirely unacceptable: Reader, which was small and weak and broken and might never grow into a proper dragon, and Voice, which already thought it could control her.

Candidate Toki

Toki had gone straight back to her room and obtained Menace, and though the temptation to linger there was strong, she'd come back out to at least listen to the others talk. Except.. no one seemed to want to talk. She sat crosslegged on the floor, rubbing the bronze flit between his headknobs, and lifted her shoulders in a small shrug as Norell concluded.

"None of them seemed particularly bad to me, at least of the ones I touched. But.. same, none of them seemed to indicate who - or even what they were looking for. They seem to be playing it close to the chest. Wonder if that's because they were moved," Toki rambled, then shook her head slightly. She couldn't blame them really, not with this lot.

"Sometimes eggs are just like that," Norell shrugged. She'd paid attention to her brother and sister's stories, "My sister and brother didn't know their eggs until they hatched."

G'er had thought a different egg entirely was going to be his. Of course, G'er had always been an idiot.

Or maybe it meant that neither Norell nor Toki was Impressing. There were 17 eggs, which were better odds than most clutches, but the eggs were still far outnumbered by the candidates. Norell glanced around the room, searching for anyone who looked pleased or hopeful.

"Did anyone here find their egg?" she gave in and asked. Not that candidates were necessarily reliable sources. There were plenty willing to read choice into simple friendliness.

Candidate Tholli

She was trying not to sulk. Almost more interested in hiding in her bed than existing in the common room with the others. But Tholli wanted to know. She'd missed touching so many eggs. But she felt vindicated. It had been the right thing to do!

Tucking her knees under her chin, Tholli made herself small in her seat. Wedged as far into the corner as she could push the chair. She hugged her shin and watched the room from between sheets of pale hair. Drive-imp had been very nice. These others she hadn't had a chance to touch. Sucking the inside of her lip, she kept from adding to the conversation in agony.

Candidate Peony

"I didn't." Peony rubbed her hands on her knees, as if she were still feeling the texture of egg shell on her hands instead of the thick weave of her trousers. "Least not that I could tell." She felt as if she'd left little impression on any of the eggs, nor they on her.

But she remembered each. How soon would they forget her?

"Maybe? Moving certainly didn't do that small cracked egg any good." She glanced at the girl pouting in the corner. A sharp look from the corner of her eyes. Served her right for breaking the rules. "Maybe things are different at Ista. I've never been." Peony had always belonged to High Reaches. Even when the Weyr was breaking her heart, she belonged to it.

Candiate Kinkajou

"Drive-Imp and Hopeless Drifter are friends. Good friends." Kinkajou said fondly, resting her chin on her hands. "I think I might have accidentally annoyed Celestial Rights. I was just too excited! And that egg is so big..." But were any of them hers? She pursed her lips thoughtfully.

"If any of them are mine, I think they're the smaller eggs. Or maybe Drifter? But none of them reacted super strongly."


Candidate Legoshi

He remained quiet for a moment, considering the eggs and how they reacted to him. He hadn't even bothered to touch Celestial Rights. There was no point if it was gold, which was likely.

"I don't know. None of them seemed to react very strongly.... Titan Stars and Titan Ram were intense, but I think... they reacted that way to everyone." Some had reacted annoyed he was touching them. He didn't think any of these eggs were his.


Candidate Lucine

"It may sound cliche.... but I think I liked Celestial Rights. I don't think its mine, though. But it was kind to me all the same." She smiled. "It seemed really... regal." But what else? "Sunny Knight was pleasant. A lot of the small eggs were... Softwing Harp was, well, soft. And I liked Hopeless Drifter as well."
