Short Bio: She was Searched recently, by dragon-riding relatives; she
agreed to bond a dragon because it sounds exciting.
Aelsa looked around excitedly and tried to take in
everything the Weyr had to offer. She'd dreamed about experiencing this
after her relatives had told her about. She'd been surprised when they'd
told her she could come with them to the Weyr and try. Shouldn't there be
some screening process about becoming a candidate? Of couse, there were
tales about people standing for years before they impressed, or even
worse, never impressing at all. Knowing her luck, she probably wouldn't
Suddenly the day didn't feel as magical anymore. She tried to tell herself
that she didn't need to impress, just being here was wonderful.
"Why are you sad?"
"I'm not sad," she told her self, "just trying to be
realistic. There's no way i'd impress no matter how much I wish for
Strange, inner voices shouldn't be so surprised about her own thoughts.
Aelsa woke up from her daydream and made eye-contact with a lovely blue
dragon. He seemed to be really intent on finding out why she was thinking
her roundabout thoughts. How could she let him know that life could be
harsh and cruel and that setting your expectancies low meant you'd be less
inclined to feel let down?
"Oh, now I understand." he
said, feeling better, "Well, expect me to
stick around. I'm Nidith."

"Shouldn't you... you know get to know the dragon
you're chasing?" Aelsa asked Nidith.
"Why?" Nidith asked, "She'll
learn all she needs to know during the flight."
"Yeah but... this is so unromantic." Aelsa complained,
"What about love and staying together?"
"I don't know. Maybe if we hit it off really
well. But I'll have to win her over first." Nidith
Inside the blue dragon wondered about the unusual thoughts his bond had
about love. She'd told him she loved to read a thing called romance novels
and felt just like one of those lead characters, always females, who were
witty and funny and found the man of their dreams. He was quite curious
about falling in love, but right now he just wanted to win the flight and
go from there.
"Let's just have fun for now. Love can come
later." he said for good measure.
"I suppose some stories do start like that." Aelsa
"See!" Nidith grinned,
feeling better already.
Now he just had to do his best.
