Master Thayde goes on Fleet Duty and gets a nasty surprise when he realizes that Jalodwyn is also assigned the same duty. While they are out at sea Jalodwyn tells Thayde that she is pregnant and the baby is his. Thayde refuses to believe that the child is his or acknowledge it.
When they return to the Dolphin Hall after a fortnight at sea, Jalodwyn makes a scene on the pier, announcing to everyone that she's carrying Thayde's child. Enamra sees and hears Jalodwyn and runs away, ruining her reunion with Thayde.
Thayde and Enamra discuss the possibility that the child might be his and reconcile after his long absence.
The next day, Thayde reports in with Hallmaster Endarin and is in for a surprise when Endarin steps down and offers the position to Thayde. Thayde accepts the position of new Hallmaster, using his new title to immediately transfer Jalodwyn to a different posting.
Enamra has difficulty adjusting to her new role as the Hallmaster's wife and doesn't make friends with the snobby women of the Hall. Thayde tries to make her feel better by giving her an office of her own in their quarters, but it only serves to stress Enamra out more.

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!

Bronze dragons are helping push the sand into the hatching caverns to prepare for the first gold flight. Who will the new Weyrwoman be?
It's a tossup!

Meanwhile, Yriadha hired a new Foster Mother for Lord Bryvin's two children with his former wife. And a pack of young ladies descend on the hold as foster's for his sister Lady Brina who is also arriving to manage the Lady's duties for her brother.
The acquaintance recovers and brings Lord Bryvin's daughter back to him. He dismisses her and tells her he won't contact her again.
Riadem is impressed by one of the ladies and bails out three of them when they get into some trouble late at night in one of the dockside taverns. Lady Brina doesn't approve. Nor does she approve when she learns he's impregnated a drudge.
Yriadha takes that issue in hand to make sure the drudge aborts her child and makes way for Riadem to break off and court the young lady he prefers.
What's going to happen next? What plot will be revealed?
