Finn shouldn't have been awake this early. It was Turn's Beginning after all. Most of the Weyr would be sleeping off hang overs and highs from the day and night before. She herself had partaken in a little bit of both with B'tian, and she still felt the effects of whatever had been ingested despite the fact that several hours had passed between then and morning. But she was awake, and it was all because Belladonna had insisted her eggs were going to hatch on this day. She was humming away, which meant she had very little time in which to work. She leaned over to kiss her weyrmate before climbing out of bed and dressing.
Sure enough, there was the gold, dancing around her nest with red flecked eyes, wings flared whenever one of the other lizards attempted to near. She would only let Finn close, and even then it was a difficult dance the two of them were on, because the firelizard knew what would be coming just as soon as her human was finished with her note - the partial nest set aside for the Flotilla would be packed up and sent to Fali'vas, the woman's sister, for the people there.
"You bite me, I swear to fuck I'll bite back." Finn warned the gold when she neared to do exactly that. She had contacted a friend to take the eggs to the Flotilla for her, and they would be called for again, and arrive to take the box away. Belladonna, however, was hissing and snapping, not at all pleased whether she knew this was to happen or not. She had always been like this as a mother firelizard, protective and obsessive over her eggs, and so she had Danteth call on Kreek, the sire of the clutch, in the hopes that he would help calm her some.
When he appeared, he was able to distract Belladonna long enough for Finn to finish packaging the eggs in sand and a box, then proceeded to cal for her friend again. Soon enough the eggs were dashed off to the likely equally sleepy Flotilla folk along with her note to her sister, both a promise to visit with the babies soon enough, and a message about wishing the people of the Flotilla a happy New Turn from her. With that done, she prepared the basket for transport, arranging the remaining eggs and standing.
It was then that Bellladonna realized things were changing again and she hovered and hissed and snapped, ignoring her mate in favor of watching, red-eyed, over her children and human's handling of them. She told Bast where she was going before heading out. In the dining hall, she found her usual perch and thanked Sarami, her foster mother and the woman responsible for tending to her and R'fael's children, for bringing her breakfast, then had Danteth call upon the Weyr.
Good morning and happy New Turn to everyone! I know you are all likely sleeping off your parties still, as my rider wishes she was still able to, but gold Belladonna's eggs with hematite Kreek are about to hatch in the dining hall. Oh, and weyrlings... we have it on good authority that you're able to get an egg if you so wish. Finn grinned, sipping from the extra strong mug of klah Sarami had brought to her, especially at that last part; she suspected she'd see more than one weyrling asking for an egg on this unsightly morning hour...
[ ooc ]
- Hatching is taking place on Turn's Beginning of 2048 in the morning, so your characters are likely sleeping off the effects of their time the night before; those that were able to party hardy (or felt like it).
- Please visit "Treasures of Shadow and Gold [ Flotilla Hybrid Hatching ]" for the Flotilla hatching.
- These are firelizard/fancy hybrids, meaning... you'll have to wait to see what they look like.
- Eggs can be claimed two per member (can be two at the Weyr, two at the Flotilla) or just one if you'd rather, first come first serve.
- Please request your egg number at the bottom of your post.
- Contents of eggs will be random rolled for each member.
- The egg list will be shared, OOC, between the Weyr and Flotilla.
- YES, I have been told weyrlings CAN receive an egg as they are at that point in their training where they can have pets again.
- I'll hatch after one or two posts, depending on when I'm able to get to the thread.
- If you have questions, please ask!
- (My eternal gratitude to Slasher who helped me get the babies done. <3)
