[HATCHING] Everything Changed

It was the middle of day when all good wherhandlers were asleep, the sun hot and bright above. Somewhere in Semaca's caverns, an egg began to twitch. Just the once. And then another. It was time.

The call went out to every wherhandler and candidate in the weyr- come or be left behind. The babies were hatching and they would wait for nobody.

Ahosk's eggs rumbled and shook ferociously, as if racing to be the first to hatch. Ghysk's one, by contrast, gave no more than a few little wobbles. That one seemed in no rush at all...

Toro

The eggs of a mere green and, by far the greater crime, a garnet. Ill breeding would undoubtedly rear its ugly head at this Hatching, and not least because whers were hideous creatures in any event. No, there was nothing for Toro at this day's event. Such as it were. There would be no golds or bronzes, the sort of wher his birth made clear that he deserved.

Still, for the sake of public optics, he had to attend. Stand about yawning while inferior beasts made their matches. But if they were what it took for him to take his rightful place as Lord Holder of Fort Weyr, then by Faranth he'd do it. But not some lowly, common color. No, his would be metallic. As close to perfection as it was possible for a wher to actually be. Ugly things.

He stood near the back of the group of those watching and waiting, an expression of what he hoped appeared to be awe and excitement plastered on his face; he instead looked mostly vaguely bored. But then, he'd spent so many Turns exercising restraint, he'd almost forgotten how to pretend at anything else.

The time for his glorious return would come someday, but it would not start today.



Mutti

At last, Mutti was of age to start trying for whers. Maybe if dragons didn't want her, one of them would. Anything to get her to be a member of Mazurka Squad and studying more officially under Rigel sooner! Too few people at Semaca understood the importance of real research.

She leaned eagerly forward toward the eggs, hands on her hips. Even if she didn't Impress, at least she had a chance to observe a wher hatching! And maybe she could see how similar where eggs were to what hatched, though the lack of a Touching did complicate things somewhat. How was she supposed to get a sense of them if she'd never touched them?

Karaze- mention Toro, tag Mutti

While this wasn't Karaze's first wher hatching, it was only his second, so he wasn't sure what to expect. The appearance of Newsk's egg had been an anomaly, so maybe this was his first proper wher hatching? Did it really matter? Was he overthinking this? Karaze shook his head to clear his thoughts as he took his place among the gathered handlers and candidates. He skirted past Toro, hoping his roommate didn't see him. The older man was intimidating to say the least and he didn't think talking to him would be good for his already frazzled nerves.

He found himself standing next to Mutti as she leaned toward the eggs. Was she as excited as he was? Just as nervous? Should he ask? "Are you excited too?" Karaze asked the girl. He couldn't let everyone intimidate him; what would the whers think?

Errol groaned and pulled her pillow over her head. Then groaned again when Errosk pulled her blankets off her body. Well it was just one blanket, more of a light sheet than anything else. Snorting she kicked at him, and rolled right out of the bed.

Good, you are up. And with that he padded off to watch his egg hatch. His egg! Errosk was very excited, he had never made eggs before. Ghysk had proven to be an excellent clutch mother. All business that one.

Whining, Errol pulled clothes on. A stiff button up shirt with long sleeves and wide cuffs, the collar high and a little rumpled. Layered skirts to not quite match it and unlaced boots, which she tried righting as she stumbled after her wher. They arrived mostly together, and Errol crouched behind the blue to tie up her boots and wipe the sleep from her eyes and mouth.

Omiask and Eunomia jumped at the call, surprised that the whers would choose such a strange hour to hatch. Ever the soldiers, they quickly prepared themselves, shaking off their sleep as well as they could. Despite being somewhat dazed by waking at such an odd hour, Eunomia remained (mostly) alert. This could possibly be a momentous occasion.

After all, Eunomia supposed she was a "candidate" for this clutch. She hadn't been expressly forbidden from putting her luck in for this clutch, anyways. People might disapprove of her, but she was one of them, now. She wouldn't let them refuse her an opportunity, regardless of how she might feel about herself. A second wher would only help her contribute, and if they couldn't see that...well, it would bring good things, regardless. Surely, they wouldn't give her an egg, though. Someone like her? She was outcast by all--or so she believed, at least.

Omiask, for his part, was excited about the prospect of a little wher running around. Someone to teach and protect, someone to raise. To raise them right, to raise them respectful, kind, and brave. Is good. Opportunity, he reminded his handler.

We'll see, Eunomia told him, as the pair made their way towards the hatching. She suppressed a yawn as they entered, and bowed her head towards the clutchmothers. As grouchy and difficult as she was, she would show the mothers of the whers the proper respect.

Will be good whers, Omiask commented to the clutchmothers. Serve Weyr well.

Ollie had never BEEN to a wher hatching.

He still was getting used to the people here, trying to settle in to a weyr that was so... foreign. So new. So strange. So... loose! It delighted him to no end that while there WERE rules they were nowhere near as annoying as Fort's. Or at least thats how hed accepted it.

He wasnt as well dressed as the others who showed up... and it was a smaller crowd too. But he didnt mind! He was just eager to watch and learn! To see the best creatures on pern be born... with a nod to sakuyath of course.

Anakin was so proud. And he didn't let Ahsoka forget it. The two handlers stood apart from Ahsosk and her clutch, Ahsoka trying to playfully escape her former mentor's proud embrace.

"Mast--Anakin, you're embarrassing me!" Ahsoka finally managed to escape, her mock scowl soon replaced by a smile at Anakin's overly repentant face.

"That's what I'm here for, Snips." Together as one, the two turned to the eggs, waiting for Ahsosk to make her first choice.

Ahsosk snorted at her handler's antics. She had yet to make her choice. But Omiask's respect was very appreciated. Thank Omiask. Any foolish late humans, get here now. Last chance to get egg.

Ghysk's egg was still more twitching than shaking when with a sudden nod she rolled it over to a candidate little more than a boy. He was the right one. She was sure of it.

The egg, for all it seemed placid, almost sluggish, cracked as soon as it reached Karaze's feet, as if it felt its future handler waiting. A blue! A pale, wrinkly, pudgy blue. He stayed where he'd landed for a second, looking peacefully around him, and then turned towards his new person.

He regarded him solemnly in silence for a moment more before he said, Am Karask. Is good finally meet. Life better with a friend. Now time eat. Rest will come later.

Image

The two eggs by the garnet's side continued in their furious contest but this new hatchling didn't seem bothered. There would be time to meet his siblings later, when all had hatched and been fed. For now, he had a good meal waiting for him and a new human's ways to learn.

Didn't whers and their handlers do things at night? Then why was the hatching during the day...? Weird, but, alright.

Wild loved himself a hatching, dragon and wher alike. He'd never actually taken part in one before, only seen them, it'd been dragon hatchings that he'd run around in. Maybe he'd have better luck this time around? Maybe not, who knows, his luck was always fifty fifty. That didn't mean he didn't hope that things would go his way. Bounding to the hatching like no tomorrow, he collected himself with a smile as he gathered with the other candidates.

With an egg hatched and a pretty blue wher already out and choosing their handler, Wild's smile only grew. "Woah! Pretty..."

Ollie had barely any time to react. It was good to know these whers didnt waste any time though. Didnt try and be dramatic like those fussy dragons... trying to draw things out and make it so that everyone had to hokd their breath for so long...

The blue made him smile. Maybe hed be lucky and Impress here... have someone to show to Ly'nk when he got to see him again?

Then again he'd just gotten here. Maybe the whers should go to someone local for now... wouldnt be fair to them if he, a newcomer, came in amd got a wher, right?

The first egg had hatched but the other two weren't going to wait patiently and give the blue his moment. Ahsosk looked over the candidates a last time before pushing the Isolation egg to Toro, You. Fancy man. Have pretty fire egg. But beware not get burned.

The egg's cracks were quick and furious but also seemed...deliberate somehow. It shattered in a single burst. Nearly perfect. Except for a single shard that fell right in the wherlet's eyes.

She was a bright vivid green, with markings like flame, and her eyes flashed an angry red as she shook off that one misplaced piece of egg that had ruined everything.

When those eyes turned to Toro...they were judging. Cold. Ruthless. Unlike the blue, she didn't seem to be particularly happy to meet him, So you person mom chose for me. Joy.

She sounded anything but joyful.

Image

As the young green found her person, the last egg shook even harder, the wher inside struggling fiercely to break free of its shell...

Mutti Tag: Karaze

"Of course I am! Would I be here if I weren't? Honestly, the inane questions some people ask when things are just obvious." Mutti muttered the last under her breath, wondering how anyone could be so inconsiderate as to ask pointless questions. Why not ask her about things that mattered, like what might hatch from the eggs, or whether she actually wanted to Impress a wher or if she was just here as an observer?

She turned her attention to the green wher as she rolled an egg... toward her! It was finally her time! Except... instead the egg was delivered to the dimglow boy's feet. Really? Well, at least she was close enough for good observation. She'd get a good look at how whers—and likely dragons—hatched. Since she wasn't allowed anywhere near this close dragon eggs at this stage of hatching, well, it seemed to be her best shot.

She watched as the egg hatched a blue. The shell had slowly cracked and seemed almost to fall away. Peaceful; serene, even. Quite unlike the dragons at the last Hatching. "Congratulations," she told Karaze, her voice only a little tinged with bitterness.



Toro of Green Torsk

The first wher to hatch was clearly representative of what this clutch had to offer: a mere blue, and downright lazy at that. But then everyone knew that the chromatic colors had no real initiative of their own. It was why they were insufficient, fated to be rightfully ruled over by the metallics.

His face betrayed none of the dismay he felt when the garnet approached him with an egg. "I am always careful," he told her, not commenting on the 'fancy man' part. He wasn't sure if she meant it as an insult or a statement of fact—which it was. But he did know that some common folk resented the elevated status that those of the Blood were rightly owed.

If he was lucky, the wher that hatched would realize he deserved better and choose another.

Unsurprisingly, the wher that hatched was a green, and one that didn't seem to have the slightest clue how to hatch with any sense of decorum. Unrefined beast. She clearly had a temper, and when she looked at him it was with red eyes. Angry. Well at least she'd be easily convinced that she should find a handler elsewhere.

So you person mom chose for me. Joy.

Toro didn't respond. She had no interest in him, clearly. She was free to go and make her own choice. With someone else.

How dare you no acknowledge! I will no be ignored. Blood. Now. Or will make life difficult. She stood expectantly, waiting. Not particularly caring about him, he was inconsequential, but she would not be made a fool of this way in front of everyone.

Toro continued to ignore her, and with a snarl the green's teeth flashed as she nipped him in the calf. Hard.

Now Toro reacted. "Those trousers were not inexpensive!" he protested as the green lapped at the cut she'd made.

You think care? No need fancy pants to feed. Now. Pick up and pretend have soul. Will prove we better than others in all ways. Even if you need pretend actually better than anyone.

Omiask bowed his head to Ahsosk in response, a movement that mirrored that of his handler moments ago. He had a respect for her, as a wher who had laid eggs for their Weyr. His Weyr. Which he would protect and defend. And...Cute, Omiask commented privately, to his handler, as they watched the first wherlet emerge. Wrinkled and pudgy, perhaps, but that only made the little blue cuter.

You'd think you sired them, Eunomia replied, folding her arms as she watched, and wondering if it was even a good idea to be here, after all. Another wher to be stuck with someone like her as a handler, another wher to deal with the stigma? Wouldn't that be a little...unfair, to a wherlet?

Is okay. Mother choose best. If us, then good. If not, still good.

The next hatching was a little more eventful, as the egg more or less exploded, and the new handler...well, he didn't seem to want his wher. Eunomia glared at Toro, as he ignored the green, but her disdain tinged with sympathy as the green took matters into her own hands.

And then there was one. Ahsosk nudged it over to Anakin, a single wingtip briefly poking out of the shell as she did so, You. Not so fancy man. Stubborn man meet stubborn egg, perhaps make good.

The wherlet did not emerge quickly or easily as its siblings had. The egg just kept shaking and cracking, an occasional glimpse of a dark wher peeking through...

Clearly this one was having some trouble with this whole "hatching" thing.

Finally, it pushed its way out with a roar. A brown! Still nowhere near quitting, he marched towards Anakin with the born arrogance of a prince and gave a mental bellow loud enough to be heard by everyone in the room, Feed me, handler! No time wait!

Already they were the last. Already they were behind. And that was unacceptable.
