Doesn't Count [Memerina]

The high clifftops of the new Weyr gaze out across desert and jungle both, an ideal location to watch for incoming trouble.

Doesn't Count [Memerina]

Uruk had a perfectly good dragon. Who could fly and was always up for an adventure. Which made it a mystery to anyone but him why he was dangling by one hand from the walls of Semaca's cliffs, far, far higher than any rational person would climb.

You're going to fall, Georsath said matter of factly, waiting to catch him when he inevitably did. She didn't stop him though. Uruk was going to be Uruk and she wasn't going to keep him a box, I could have done it.

No, no, you have to climb to it, see? It doesn't count if you fly, Uruk said.

You thought you saw a shiny thing in a nook in the rocks. Why wouldn't it count? Georsath said, And who says I can't climb?

She was pretty sure she could. Uruk was doing it and it didn't look THAT hard.

Passing through the clifftops, K'zal and Tenebrith were not expecting anything particularly out of the ordinary to happen. Normally, these sort of flights simply involve the standard training regimes, and possibly conversations with fellow dragons- is that man dangling from a forsking cliff?

"Oh dear. Tenebrith, let's take a detour. He looks like he is... struggling." Tenebrith's head jerked around, to see Uruk, single-handedly grabbing onto a cliff, eyes glancing down to see a garnet dragon, sending a message to her. Pardon me if this is a bother, but is that your rider hanging off the edge of the cliff? Does he need help? Assistance? The two flew in closer, to properly survey the situation, in case the rider possibly needed to get down.

As soon as they parked up near the bottom of the cliff, it dawned in K'zal's mind; why isn't his dragon helping him, if he is in danger? Excuse me... she said firmly, to Georsath. Is your rider doing okay, up there? He may suffer great injury if he were to fall... She looked deeply concerned, genuinely. But a part of her - quite a large part of her - wondered how the rider would have even got himself in such a situation.

Why would he need help? Georsath asked. Her rider's memories were filled with people asking if he needed someone to help him. He never did. He had her, after all, I'm right here, watching him. He's fine.

Uruk gave them a wave with a broad smile, his hold looking decidedly precarious. But he managed to catch himself and keep climbing. He was almost there! He didn't seem concerned at all by the current state of affairs and it hadn't even really crossed his mind that he could fall and get hurt.

If he falls, I'll catch him, Georsath shrugged off K'zal's concern. She wasn't actually all that convinced he'd make it but she didn't have the heart to stop him. He was trying.

Despite Georsath telling K'zal not to worry about it, as she craned her neck upwards, she gave a slightly concerned wave to Uruk in response. Tenebrith, behind her, gave a much happier wave. What was he doing, up there? Without his dragon, especially? "Why exactly is he up there? Did he suddenly feel adventurous?"

Maybe he wanted to be just like us? By 'us', he meant dragons. Not that humans have wings or anything that could support them in flight! Not exactly called HUMAN-riding, now, is it? Tenebrith chuckled awkwardly as his head bobbled from side to side enthusiastically as he spoke. He waddled over to Georsath, with excitement. He loved meeting new people! So, who's the mountain climber up there then?

He saw something shiny and he wanted to investigate, Georsath explained, not sounding particularly concerned. She knew her rider's mind and he wasn't feeling nervous or brave. He was just focused on climbing the rocks and getting to whatever it was, That's my rider, Uruk. He's not trying to be a dragon. He just does things like this. I already told him he should let me try to climb. I'm bigger and stronger and I can fly. But if he really wants to do it, who am I to stop him?

For all that Uruk didn't look like much of a climber, he was doing surprisingly well. He swung up onto a narrow ledge with a small whoop and started running his hands along the rock. His heels hung over the edge and the ledge looked like it could crumble under his weight at any second, but he didn't seem to be in much of a rush to find whatever it was he was looking for.
