Welcome to Vaioa,

a desert triumvirate of Hold, Weyr, and Mine. Thread's return and bandit raiding brought strife between weyr and hold, but the bandits' recent defeat has returned the region to an uneasy peace. Now, a shipwreck on a forgotten continent and the decision to settle this rediscovered land has opened up a world of opportunity to Vaioa, if only they can handle the dangers.

Slinky the Darter; Standalone

((Fuzzytimed to shortly after Melacyth clutched))

Dessah had been distracted since the Southern hatching. Now that the odd, tragic clutch had hatched, it seemed everything was supposed to go back to normal. Work was work, life was life, and everything that had happened in the South was half a world away. Unless someone came to order clothing, Cove Weyrhold shouldn’t concern her in the slightest.

Things hadn’t gone back to normal though. It was less than a sevenday after the hatching that she had noticed it. Her tiny, beloved darter didn’t stay on her shoulder or near her side as much as she used to. Slinky slept more; was less likely to leave Dessah’s quarters to go with the weaver in the morning without a few minutes of prompting. She still couldn’t fly, for obvious reasons, but her wings seemed stiffer, and if Dessah wasn’t careful when handling her she often gave an offended chirp of pain.

She should have known it was coming before now. Dessah had had Slinky for nearly five turns now, and who knew how old the darter had been when she found her. The tiny wherries weren’t like fire lizards, who could match a human in age or perhaps live even longer. She had been lucky to get this many turns out of her tiny, feathered friend.

The weaver awoke one morning to find Slinky curled on her pillow, and somehow, instinctual, Dessah knew this would be her last morning with her. She had sniffed a little, dabbed at her eyes, and gently carried her pet down to the crafthall, setting her down in a nest of blankets and running a knuckle over her wings every few stitches she made.

It was between one moment and the next; one heartbeat and another; the first stitch and the second. Dessah put aside her work and laid a hand on Slinky, feeling the darter take a long, shuddering before going still. The weaver blinked, feeling an unwanted wetness come to her eyes. She had had Slinky for turns now; had still been an apprentice when she found her. An icy cold gripped her heart. Alone. Dessah felt more alone than she had ever been in her life. She had had parents, friends, family. Slinky for turns now. Her aunt might only be a few doors down, but for all it felt like she might as well be on the other end of Pern.

Tears slipped unbidden down her cheeks as she slipped one of the blankets over her dead darter. “Love you, darling. Fly free.”
