characters carry something like a fae glamour on them that - if they find
themselves in an environment where their appearance would be considered
negative or alien (such as a closed setting or xenophobic culture), they
will appear reasonably ‘native’ to their new environment, or their ‘otherworldly’
traits will go unnoticed.
It had been some time since there had been so many travellers in Kyanos
Weyr, so where previous hatchings had been traditional affairs, this one
was almost more of a party. Individuals traded stories, networked, made
friends (or enemies). There was good food and good drink (even for those
not yet of age), though all care was taken among candidates to absolutely
not get inebriated before the event could truly start.
When some of them caught the sounds of humming, and the Kyanos riders
confirmed it, no one was caught dallying on the way to the sands, where
the slate-gray Ebeldath was curled protectively around her eggs.
Over the past weeks, candidates might have spotted little fluttering
things here and there, all colours of the rainbow, dancing about the eggs,
leaving sparkles in their wake...
The first shell cracking open gave a glimpse to the attendees of just what
that light coating of glitter on the eggs really meant - a surprising
rainbow riot of colors streaked across hatchling hides, shimmering in the
light. A few comments flittered here and there, about faeries, and yet, no
one was really surprised. Locally, it was considered good fortune to be
touched by one of the fae. And even if it wasn’t, there was hardly
anything to be done about it now.
Eggs cracked more and more, now causing noses and claws and wings to show,
and on occasion, roll out the newborns. Kyanos had seen changes in the
norm of their dragons’ colours over many years, but these little ones
had all manner of bright rainbows involved.
And then hatchlings started being hatchlings, popping up here and there,
butting heads with each other, scenting out all the people around, and
mentally poking a bit, to make their decisions.
A green and a blue wove their way between other hatchlings and two-legged
folk and any others about. When the pair of them stopped, the green nudged
the blue towards a lady by the name of Eliska, and prompted him to
introduce himself, albeit shyly, as Gamanth. Pleased at the pairing, the
green then turned her attention to a Kailani fellow by the name of Castian.

Castian found his mind wandering away from the duty at hand. Not a good
thing when you were checking the safety-harnesses. Giving up with a heavy
sigh, he knew he'd been here for too long already. The wind sang and the
road called to his blood. There was no denying the need that filled his
"I sense your unrest."
Reyarth popped up in his mind.
"Is it that obvious?" he asked her.
"We are connected, I know all of your
"I'm not trying to hide it."
"But you are, you think I'd be sad to leave
"You are my home. As long as I'm with you
I'll be happy."
"Are you certain? I could stay a little bit longer?"
"And be unhappy. No, I would not ask that of
you. Besides we can always return for a short visit. It's not like the
trip back will take time. Why we could even travel and return to sleep in
our own beds here every night."
"That would kind of defeat the purpose of travelling..."
"I'm just joking." Reyarth
