[Hatching] I Will Always Find You

Where many lives were shown glory and more given despair, no longer will Vizeth's tyranny haunt these sands.

Banagher watched egg after egg hatch and Impress, none of the hatchlings giving Mineva more than a cursory glance, if that. The chaos with the bronze and garnet sickened him, but it seemed to be handled before he could react. He didn't really approve when the garnet-slapper got a brown, but what could he do about it, really?

And now there was a candidate rejecting her blue, causing a commotion on the Sands. Banagher wanted nothing more than to run down there and shake the woman. How could she reject a dragon? Her very own dragon?

Some people we cannot help, Banagher. Her dragon and her fellow candidates will help her see reason. Unicoth sensed no real distress from the little blue, just sadness and hunger. He was not going to go between soon.

The small egg shook. It rattled, shaking and tumbling away from... well... almost everything. There was nothing stopping it until it knocked against the edge of the stands, and broke apart. A confused, and slightly disoriented, dragonet stood, and wobbled towards the candidates.

Image

A green!

A stunning, beautiful green.

She was a stunning shade of green, and when looking closer, her base color was actually two shades of tealy-green muddled together, as if she was light being filtered through a canopy. There were light, mint-green markings over her body as if in some sort of code. The same light pattern spun some spirals on her wingsails.

She started on one side of the line and slowly made her way down. Each candidate seemed to be carefully checked and inspected, and she took a long time to squint at Naoto before finally she moved on.

On to her person. Viela.

Hello. I am Oveceth. Finally here. Let's go. She spoke in short, choppy sentences, pushing her face into the candidate's leg.

Simple, sweet, and very to the point.

The Elder Mind started to rock next, splitting loudly.

Qibli-Naoto

So many pretty greens! And this one, so... well, he could feel her eyes running him over. It didn't make his skin crawl exactly, but he felt.... under scrutiny. Which was probably the case, even as she made her way to someone else. Well... being considered was nice too right?

"Naoto, you look like you're about to pass out on your feet. Maybe you should try being knocked around by a brown. That might wake you up." he joked, snickering softly to himself.

Naoto - Qibli

He was snapped from his thoughts when he heard his name. Right, it would be rude not to respond. " That air buffet was more than enough for me thanks. He replied, with a micro hint of amusement. His mind was still pondering that glance from the beautiful green. What did that mean exactly? " This clutch have all been beautiful...like art given living flesh."

Toki - Openish

Another baby hatched, and knew right where to go, much to likely everyone's relief at this point. Toki couldn't help but let her shoulders slump just a little as she looked toward the three great lumps still intact on the stands. Three eggs left, and many, many Candidates who wanted them. The odds were not in her favor.

The dark haired girl took a deep breath and let it out in a sigh, lifting her hands to brush sand and sweat from her temples. At least it would be over soon.

Hans - Moon

He was dimly aware of what was happening.

In the heat of several moments, he'd dragged himself off the sands, having asks to please just be allowed to rest off to the side.. He had just been mumbling to Moon about how he'd messed up. How he was so sure that would have worked out but...

Qibli-Naoto
Qibli laughed faintly. He was glad Naoto was at least somewhat amused with his joke. He was used to laughing at them by himself for the most part.

"Mm. They are. The designs on them all are beautiful. Especially that brown. He looked like his legs were made of the most expensive wood."


Moon-Hans
She gave Hans a weak look, touching his shoulder.

"Maybe, Hans... but its okay." She didn't know if she liked that mumbling. Was it just self-anger or was his injury making him delirious? "You know you made a mistake. That's what matters."

" The eggs themselves too are like works of art. I have never seen or heard of anything like them." He said then stared at the one that was prepping to hatch. " Like that one there."

Viela of Green Oveceth - open; mild tag of the weyrling crew
(sort of, didn’t actually talk to the group)

Viela started to take a few steps forward, wanting to help with the apparently struggling white egg, but then she saw there were already other candidates there - they’d beaten her to coming in with help - and so she took as many steps back, secure in her relief that this hatchling was getting the aid it needed. It wasn’t long before a surprisingly bright-coloured yet very tired-looking little blue spilled out onto its partner’s lap. Aww. Poor little blue, I hope he’s okay..

She briefly looked up, noticing how dark the patch of sky above the Sands had grown - enough for several lit glows strategically placed about the place to light up the Hatching - momentarily unaware that the next egg had just hatched. Viela heard an angry-sounding roar, and looked back just in time to see.. wait, was that —no, not a gold, the hide didn’t have that metallic shine— a large golden brown hatchling charge straight at them. Before she could react, he had knocked several candidates over - some of whom in a chain reaction too knocked her down.

What the forsk?

She laid there with a dazed look for a few moments, before Viela managed to get up again; helping a couple candidates nearest her up as she moved. She quickly brushed off the sand still on her robes and ashy blond hair, and grumpily glanced up to see that the rowdy brown had Impressed the same Candidate who had stupidly slapped the garnet. Well. Good luck to her, then.

Then the next egg revealed another pretty blue, who went straight to his candidate. Who seemed, to Viela’s surprise, to be actually ignoring her newly bonded dragon! Shards, what was SHE doing?
Soon Viela was quickly distracted by the next egg, and all thoughts of what was happening and her grumpy mood earlier swiftly left her mind as she excitedly watched.

Her blue-eyed gaze followed the little egg as it rattled and shook, its tumbling movements eventually taking it all the way across the sand to the edge of the stands. There it finally broke apart to reveal the most beautiful green she had seen so far. Viela stared for a moment as the lovely and slightly disoriented (and confused, apparently) green made her wobbly way back to the nearest end of the candidate line, furthest from the ashy-haired Harper (not that she really minded that instant). As the green started down the line, her faceted eyes seemed to intensely study each candidate she passed. Viela involuntarily made an audible noise of admiration.

Such a stunning colour, and those fascinating markings! Looked rather similar to the scribed version of drumroll codes, if the young Harper’s assumption was right. And look at those wings!

The green paused for what seemed like a candlemark - though Viela knew it couldn’t have been more than a few long moments - as she stared at one candidate, before finally moving on. When she at last reached Viela, the candidate was half-startled to ‘hear’ her voice in her mind - Hello. I am Oveceth. Finally here. Let's go. - as the green firmly pushed her snout into Viela’s leg, clearly making her choice.

Viela looked down at her, human blue eyes meeting briefly rainbow dragon eyes, and felt suddenly overcome by an joyous emotion she was unable to describe at that moment - except perhaps for one random thought about how the concept of true love couldn’t possibly hold a candle to this - as she quickly knelt to gently wrap her arms around the neck of her newly bonded dragon. The world around them seemed to have vanished, narrowing to contain only the two of them.

Oh.. Oveceth.

Such wonder in her thought, for of course Viela could now feel the mind and soul of her partner entangled with hers - dragon and rider connected forever.


So that was what Impression felt like!


After a short moment to take it in, she then noticed the odd sensation of hunger, which seemed to be coming from her green, and she sheepishly let Oveceth go, resting a light hand on the stunning green’s head for an instant as she rose.

Let’s feed you.

Yes.


The world rushed back in, and the Candidate-turned-Weyrling grinned so widely her face eventually began to ache, as she walked with Oveceth over to the food buckets and the slowly growing group of weyrlings. Viela gave them a big thumbs up, still grinning and completely speechless with wonder and joy in that moment.

Ganymede- Viela

Another Impression well done.

He had been watching Honerva from afar, rubbing Auth's belly as she settled. What was she doing? Why was she not picking up her dragon and joining them? Surely she wasnt going to reject them...?

Oveceth! Hello! Auth had squirmed away, bouncing and stumbling over to her fellow green... she was losing it, wiggling in delight. She hadnt succeeded in getting anyone but Gany to play with her so... maybe she would?




Hans- Moon

"I cant... go back to bed or anything. I want to go back to my room but Im... going to need to go to the medics after this is done..." he mumbled tiredly. "...Im sorry. I made such a mess of things... because I was desperate..."

Honerva was aware that there was a candidate talking to her, ordering her around like she was a drudge. She, however, had other, much better things to do than deign to reply.

Like deal with the blue hatchling that was standing up on his hind legs, face close to hers, and screaming like a feline, eyes whirling furiously.

"This is undignified," Honerva hissed, lifting the blue hatchling and carrying him over to the food as fast as she could. "After this, you find your own rider. There are plenty of candidates for you."

Why choose one of them when I have you? Aersth ate with gusto, and Honerva was, yet again, reminded of a feline. She did love felines.

"There, that's enough food, you little brat."

Aersth didn't reply, his eyes closing and his contented hum trailing off as he fell asleep.

Well, she was at High Reaches, where greenriders had reigned. She could take her place beside Z'kon with a blue. Even if that wouldn't hold much water with the other Weyrs...

Orpheus- Honerva, Naoto, Qibli

What a horribly rude young lady. Well. At least shed taken her dragon and left before hed needed to get more stern with her.

For now he would retreat back to Naoto, and another candidate he was not familiar with. "Sorry about that. Whats going on over here?" he asked, arms folded as he looked at the now shaking and shuddering egg...

Qibli-Naoto, Orpheus

"What did they call that one... Elder Mind? That sounds right." He nodded, sticking with that. "What do you think will be in it? Another brown? A garnet? Or do you think its big enough to have another bronze?" Maybe without the biting this time...

He turned to Orpheus, tutting a bit.

"No need to apologize. You weren't the one ignoring a dragon. A rather adorable one if I do say so myself." A very feline like blue. Honerva should feel lucky....


Moon-Hans

She just smiled weakly. Maybe he had... but what use was it to beat himself up over it now?

"There are only a few eggs left. You'll be able to go soon. I just hope your hand will be alright." Hopefully optimistic of her, but she didn't need to voice her worries over it. She was sure Hans had his own, underneath what he was feeling now.

Naoto - Orpheus, Qibli

" Hmm... pretty sure its not a gold in there but beyond that, I honestly do not know. I just hope it can get out of its shell okay, that was a bit frightening earlier." He replied, pursing his lips tightly for a moment. As Orpheus rejoined them, he spoke again. " We were just discussing the designs on the eggs and the pretty dragon pups that had already hatched."

"That so? I wish Id thought to sketch them before they hatched. Some were quite nice. But Im sure the surrogate mpther would have been cross with me if I sat here for too long and just drew..."

He shrugged. "Though... what really matters is what is inside..." Slightly untrue. Both things mattered... at least to him anyway...
