[Event] First Snow

The massive weyrbowl. Herdbeasts graze, flights are held overhead. No more does dread hang over the open sky.

Whith didn't actually ask, in so many words, What is it. He didn't feel he needed to; Constanter would be able to figure out just by the curious gesture of his paw onto the ground, and then raised up into the sky, and then back onto the ground again.

It didn't take words.

Constanter was smart. Whith knew this. Whith was not worried Constanter would be confused about what he wanted to know.

"That's -- it's snow," the young man said, trailing after his dragon as he ventured out into the world anew on a snowy morning. "Really really cold water, like."

It does not taste like ... Oh, but when it landed in Whith's open maw, it did taste like water! How curious. He silently amended his observation, lowering his snout a little in deference to his lifemate's observation. Maybe it was water.

Isn't it great?! Brenlosath cried as he tumbled through the snow, coming to a stop on his back a few feet from Constanter and Whith. Snow time is the BEST time! The Blue wiggled in the snow a bit more before righting himself and leaned forward to brush noses with Whith. I'm Brenlosath! Boss is coming, he was yelling something at me a minute ago.

"Forsk it, Bren, not everyone likes to be covered in snow!" Y'su called as he trotted over, having given up on chasing the Blue turns ago. "Sorry about him," He said to Constanter with an apologetic smile. "He's very... enthusiastic. I'm Y'su, and I'm sure Bren has introduced himself."

Sure did, Boss!

Constanter spluttered, since snow + excited dragons often = snow flying around in the air places he wasn't expecting, though it was possible his own stepping out of the way resulted in knocking snow in his own face rather than it being a product of either dragon. He was still trying to brush it out of his hair while it was falling, though, so it didn't make that much of a difference in the end, as Whith would point out later.

Whith was busy though. Whith was learning. And ... making a friend, maybe? Whith, he introduced himself softly, returning the brush of snouts, that very empty mindvoice almost matching the snow itself. Whiteness and blankness without nothingness. It is nice to meet you. You are bigger than I am.

"Oh," Constanter smiled shyly, halfway at Y'su for a second, then over toward Whith, then at his own feet. "No, it's fine, he's, he seems really sweet. Whith is kind of not, but he isn't mean, he's just a little awkward ..."

Like Constanter was being! Two peas in a pod. "Er. I'm Constanter." He, too, had a name; even remembered to use it sometimes. "A lot more used to snow than he is, but I guess I forgot he'd want to learn everything about it. I hope Brenlosath," Constanter sounded it out carefully, making sure his mouth was doing its best to emulate the sounds in his head, "Doesn't mind being licked."

Vichearth didn't ask, she just turned her snout up to watch the light flakes fall. Qibli couldn't help but smile. She was stunning like this, full of quiet curiosity. Though, he did laugh when she recoiled from a flurry of flakes hitting her muzzle. She shook her head, pressing her nose into Qibli's coat.

"Hey! You'll get me wet doing that, Vichearth!" But there was only laughter in his voice.

I'm not sure I like this snow much.

"Its fun to play in, when it starts sticking." he assured her.

And then there was Brenlosath, cascading the accumulated snow onto Vichearth. She made a startled noise, immediately trying rubbing it off on Qibli and making him laugh.

The arrival of Vichearth just made Whith more fascinated; he continued to not speak, but to watch, and after a moment decied to try lying down in the snow stuff.

A brisk sensation of cold rang out from his underbelly into Constanter's mind, and leaked into his clutch-sister's as well, but he maintained his position and craned his head up to watch the green and the older blue.

Just as silently, Constanter smiled at Qibli. Be nice to clutchmates, make friends, he kept reminding himself. You're not in this alone anymore.

Vichearth squirmed at the sensation, shaking her head a bit and regarding Whith with faint amused swirls in her eyes.

You must enjoy that more than I do. She hummed. She couldn't see herself laying in the snow if she could help it, far more content to keep her underbelly off the chilled ground.

Qibli returned the smile given to him, stepping closer to Constanter and watching the bright blue.

"I'm glad he's doing well. I think Whith's hatching scared some of us. I'm glad you had faith in him the whole time, too. I think it makes you two better for each other."

"I'm sure he won't, he did a fair bit of licking himself when he was a hatchling. Come to think of it, he still licks things," Y'su commented thoughtfully. "He may be grown, but he's just a big kid." He winced a bit at Vichearth's reaction to being snowed on so to speak and sighed. He was starting to get tired of apologizing for his dragon... "Sorry about that," he told Qibli apologetically.

Tailtip twitching, Brenlosath hummed thoughtfully. I am, but you'll get bigger as you get older. I was your size once, or at least that's what Boss tells me. He glanced over at Vichearth and his eyes widened in delight, his whole tail wagging now. Boss, look, it's another little! Hello, Little! he cried, shuffling over to Vichearth to nudge her as well. I like the littles.

Oh. Hello. This older blue... he reminded her a lot of Auth. Brensolath, right? I am Vichearth.

By 'little' he must mean 'young', she thought. Though, she was little, compared to him.

"He's a charmer." Qibli chuckled, looking at Y'su. "I think Vichearth likes him. She was just startled by the cold."

Almost everyone I have met so far has been likable. Vichearth countered, looking about as embarrassed as a dragon could. That's just how she was with everyone; polite and quietly pleasant.
