Month 10 at Dragonsfall Weyr starts off with the addition of new life to the Weyr as Chioneth and Erdenth's clutch hatches, but it also starts off with tragedy as a green dragonet fails to find her lifemate and dies on the Sands.
Saibra and K'reyel deal with the fallout by leaning on one another, showing solidarity as they put on brave faces and greet their guests at the Hatching Feast. Saibra and her weyrmate, R'enh, however, argue after the Hatching when Saibra doesn't want to take the time to check on the two HADs (Hears all Dragons) that were present for the Hatching.
Lanniya and Saibra welcome Loella and her husband Karhal to the Weyr for the Hatching, hoping that Loella might have a pleasant experience so that Lanniya could help her develop her HAD abilities. The death of the green dragonet, however, had the opposite effect, and so R'enh escorted Loella and her husband home once the Hatching was over.
During the Hatching festivities, visiting Weyrwoman's Second, Kapera, from Dolphin Cove, visits with Saibra and offers her support after losing the dragonet. Kapera had a similar experience while Weyrwoman of Dragonsfall and finds the memory disturbing.
Rapids Wingleader, K'ran, who escorted Kapera to the Hatching, offers Saibra a brief respite from her duties during the Hatching Feast by taking her outside for some fresh air and a drink. The two converse regarding Saibra's daughter, Saidrene, who is secretly sleeping with K'ran, and Saibra assures K'ran that Dragonsfall misses the bronzerider's presence.
Late into the night, Saibra revisits the Hatching Sands and is met there by Dolphin Cove Weyrwoman Cyradis, who gives her former Wingsecond comfort and advice.
Erivana and K'yne come to a mutual agreement about pursuing parenthood. Pregnant from the flight she had with K'yne, Erivana decides to keep the baby and include the brownrider in the journey.
Temmin, Talerin, and Anndil face a terrifying "bump" in the night on one of their last nights as Candidates in the boys barracks. Turns out a tunnelsnake had found its way into the room. Luckily for Temmin and Anndil, Talerin stepped up to the challenge of killing the creature.
During the Hatching all three Candidates Impressed becoming, T'min, T'leri, and A'nir.
Greenrider Tarley pays a visit to her brother, Tyrael, in the infirmary after the Hatching. He was mauled by the green dragonet who could not find her lifemate. While she's visiting her bluerider Uncle, T'kev, shows up to check on his nephew. They discuss T'kev's drinking problem, but the bluerider doesn't seem ready to fix the problem yet.
After bronzerider J'ackt's stabbing at Dolphin Cove, Timassa arrives at Dragonsfall to inform K'yne that his son has been injured. The brownrider leaves with the greenrider.
D'hol shows up at Dragonsfall to visit with Weyrwoman Saibra, who is suspicious about his real reasons for visiting. The Dolphin Cove Wingleader insists that he's merely paying a visit. While at Dragonsfall, D'hol also visits with his eldest son, Ma'din. The two exchange words and blows, but part ways on good terms.
Saibra questions Ma'din about his father's visit, but Ma'din gives away no details. Ma'din leaves Saibra with a cryptic statement, that he might be transferring to Dolphin Cove in the future.
After all of the trouble that Ninaine has experienced with her mother and the support she has received from N'call, the greenrider decides to join the Weyrlingstaff since her dragon will not recover from her injuries and be able to rejoin a fighting Wing.
Benna and L'keri enter rocky territory as the brownrider complains about his diet and then the two find themselves in an argument that has unfortunate results.
Greenrider and wingthird, Rorela, corners former Weyrleader, and current Weyrlingmaster, G'nir, in his offices and lets him know in no uncertain terms that she won't continue chasing him, he'd better catch her, now!

Thayde invites Enamra to meet his dolphin, Ada, and the dolphin takes Enamra swimming, a past time that the drudge thoroughly enjoys.
Enamra is bullied by other drudges at the Hall who can read, and so they purposefully dump their extra assignments on the younger girl, knowing that she won't be able to read the chore list. Thayde, sensing Enamra's discomfort and stress over the situation, offers to help her learn to read.

Lots of new faces mingling with the old at the Harper Hall these days.
Tasni seems to be settling in. She meets Merlish, who is secretly pursuing a new passion - runners! The young bride of Eilomar does not want Tasni to know her true reasons for being in the Record room, and instead makes an excuse about wanting a new book to help her cook more healthily now that the diet she has put herself and husband on seems to be having the desired affect.
But she was not the only one Tasni bumped into in her quest to understand the Southern Continent. Ueltin also payed a visit to the archives and had a chat with the Journeyman Archivist. Though he has reasons other than just being friendly. The Journeyman has returned to the Hall after a long stint journeying. During his last assignment, Ueltin got himself into a spot of trouble when the Holder's daughter accused him of getting her pregnant. The journeyman admits to tough-as-nails Master Jayala that it was in fact the Holder's wife he had slept with. The Master was less than impressed, but did ask him while he was at their Hall to keep an eye on their visitor from the North and try to find out what she was really doing in their Hall.
Jayala, meanwhile, has been busy with her duties of recruiting female apprentices. Writing a letter to one such prospect makes her reflect on her own journey to the Hall. While she had once been a respected teacher in a Weyrhold, after the earthquake that destroyed Thayan Peak and the moving of the Weyrfolk to Dolphin Cove, the journeywoman was forced to take steps to ensure her career as a Harper could continue after her Hold fell under the jurisdiction of a hidebound Lord.
A possible Northern spy, a Harper in hiding, a young wife still trying to get pregnant by her gruff elderly husband, and a no-nonsense lady Master... And where exactly is the Hallmaster in all this? Stay tuned for more from the Harper Hall!

River Bluff Weyr
River Bluff Weyr was hit by an earthquake in month 12 of Turn 8. The Hatching Caverns caved in and enough of the Weyr was damaged that a team of master Masons reported it unsafe for habitation. As a result, River Bluff's residents have been scattered to other Weyrs and its overflight territory divided up.
OOC NOTE: River Bluff Weyr is now a closed NPC location.

Well things have certainly been interesting at Sunstone the last few months.
Devren and Sophque are becoming closer and that concerns her, but she had a dream about Lord Morin that gave her some peace.
The headwoman confided in her friend Sophque regarding the father of her child and Sophque was neither surprised or judgemental. Sophque confided her growing feelings for the Fabric Merchant Devren and her concerns about his feelings if he knew about her daughters father.
Danrina visited Devren's shop to pick up some new fabrics for making clothing for herself and her daughter. Then Yriadha delivered a message to her from her husband of an impending visit. The pair bond a bit from shared experience of unpleasant husbands. Later Danrina remembers her first time with Bryvin.
A person from Yriadha's past visits and they speak about their shared past. She asks him for a favor in a few turns time and he agrees. Later she dreams tells Sophque of the visit and that they'd been in love in her youth this turns momentarily to a nightmare and she wakes to Bryvin in her room. My that Lord Holder sure gets around.
Meanwhile, the Lady Holder's drudge Ranni arranges to escape the hold and get to the Weyr. Which she does but on the other side of the southern continent, far from Sunstone. Just a few days later Bryvin is informed his marriage to Lady Xeladrie has been dissolved and he has also been awarded compensation from Lord Xelfin of Turquoise Bay. The Lady will be committed to the mind healer Hall and under her father's control going forward.

Yriadha returns from her father's funeral distressed and tells Sophque she was raped by Stenlis. She is terrified of what Bryvin will think of her. But Sophque takes a chance and tells the Lord what she's learned. Bryvin is livid but not with Yriadha and asks if she'd like him to kill the man for her. When Stenlis' proposal follows they plan his demise. Taril is part of the planning but goes off on a tangent to find out who Polson really is.
Taril also gives Arnolt a job to help find a present for his wife. Arnolt has always held a tender spot for Humari and finally tells her but she tells him she loves her husband. He ends up getting ahold of what Taril had asked for. Taril presents his wife with a gold firelizard egg.
