68th Dragon Clutch Touching

A large natural cavern found by the initial expedition. It has been cleared out and filled with sand. Naturally flowing hotspring pools inside the cavern keeps this cavern warm enough for dragon eggs, but also makes it very humid with all the steam from the hotspring waters.

"There there. No need to cry little one." An out pouring of warmth and acceptance wraps around you like a blanket. "Change isn't always bad, you know. I'm certainly up for the challenge and responsibility that will come after I hatch. Until then I am quite content to remain in my shell on the hot sands. You shouldn't be nervous. I'm not nervous. So come on, put on a chipper face and try not to worry so much."
Niomi couldn't help but catch her breath as she felt more than heard the 'words' of the creature within the spotted shell. Her eyes widened, the threatening tears never quite spilling over as she listened. Oh, but what an optimistic little thing. A smile curved her lips, and for an instant Niomi felt fully connected to the dragonet. A bare hint of what Impression could be. And it finally hit her, the extent of her new life. Even if Cataren took off tomorrow, for the first time, Niomi actually might hesitate to follow him. A chance to be a rider, to Impress, to have such a deep partership with something else that was even beyond just love. The ex-drudge finally understood what the other Riders were talking about, the lessons about what to expect. And she wanted it. Even if she would just get a lowly green, that green would be the most amazing thing in the world to her. Leaning down, she whispered softly to the shell, "Thank you. You're right. I will. I can."

Stepping away, she looked out at the rest of the eggs with a new hope, and slightly less worry. Emboldened by the spotted eggs encouraging words, she stepped over to one of the bigger eggs. Not the biggest, mind you, but close. No one else was touching it at the moment, so she paused beside the Lavender Fields Egg, then gently placed a few fingers on the shell. It felt much the same as the last, though this one was colored a bit more vibrantly, the lavender spots and swirls almost blending to create what one might imagine a soft cloud could look like, if one could see it, "Hello there.Your shell is pretty, like a soft cloudy day. I'm sure you're even prettier though." The words were not mere compliments to woo the growing dragonet, but as far as she was concerned it was sheer truth. She just knew that the dragonet inside was spectacular.

Ever since the cleaning of the sands, Fyrnella hasn't been as flighty or nervous about things. Sure there was still some nervousness and such but at least she no longer squeaked, cowered, and hid in a corner around any rider or dragon(Which probably made several happy). Today however was a rather big treat, being able to go in and touch the eggs. Part of her was feeling out of sorts however, try as she might inwardly she still didn't feel like she deserved being a candidate of sorts. Even more she felt that impressing was ever out of reach no matter what others said, even though her hopes and fantasies said otherwise.

Instead of worrying and sighing over it though Fyrn decided to just let things come as they may, whatever happens will happen and she will just try to do her best no matter what. It was with this attitude and thought she went with to the hatching grounds, keeping her fancy flitts back in the barracks and away from the eggs. Carefully yet a little bit wobbly she gave a little bow to Queen Andromedath and Bronze Shardamakath and their riders. Gave a shy little smile as she took her gaze away from them and glanced down. "Thank you very much for this opportunity." Somehow she managed to stutter that out before scooting away and letting others meet and greet.

At the start though Fyrn just stood there, carefully making her way through the different eggs and watching the other candidates touch them to their hearts content. Communicating and getting their own responses. They all looked enormous to her, used to the firelizards eggs, and a weight settled into her chest again. Gulping a little bit, taking slow and deep breathes to try to push away her nerves. Finally her eyes rested on a rather pretty looking one. Slowly bringing herself towards The Lavender Fields Egg she reached out with a very light and gentle touch. Once her palm touched the shell she couldn't help but be startled at the feeling and warmth of it.

A little smile spread over her face as she stood there, trying hard to push away her nerves and tell her legs to stop trembling. "Hello there and nice to meet you... sorry I'm so nervous... I hope you are healthy and when hatched find the one you want."

A crooked grin came to Laikanu’s face as he felt the connection to the dragon. Quiet? Him? A snort of disbelief came from the former guard as he shook his head. “I’m not quiet little dude. In awe maybe but I’m hardly quiet! I’m glad though that we have this in common,” He added to the conversation with The Dancing Trails Egg. “Gotta say little one that you have one awesome egg. Think they’ll let me take a shard when you hatch?” He asked even though he knew that the dragonet wouldn’t know the answer. His response was more to continue the conversation as if the baby was beside him instead of trapped in its egg. “Well.. I might just have to steal a piece anyway once you join us. Might make Mils a bracelet! Bet she’ll like that,” Lai continued as he moved his hand away from the egg.

Lost now in the thought of making his friend a momento from this shared adventure, Laikanu barely noted when his hand came into contact with another egg. In fact it wasn’t until he glanced around to find Mila to get her opinion on his idea that Laikanu realized what he had done. “Oh! Sorry little one! Didn’t mean to sneak up on you but now that I’m here, I’m glad to meet you,” Laikanu said happily with another crooked grin on his face. The memento idea fell to the back of his mind as he waited for a response from The Through The Leaves Egg.

Mila’s mind was suddenly bombarded with the eagerness and questions of the little dragon waiting in The Forest River Egg. A happy twinkle came to her brown eyes as she waited for the little one to find its path. She could feel the little dragon’s struggle to form a simple train of thought. When the baby finally spoke up she returned the happy feeling with another grin. “I’m doing well. I can only imagine how lonely you must get inside an egg all by your lonesome,” She sympathized with a small longing to stay around and keep the little one company. However the candidate girl knew that she needed to visit a few more eggs before their visit was over. With a sad note in her words, Hali wished the little egg farewell and promised to see the baby when they finally hatched.

With one hand still reaching towards The Forest River Egg, Halimila moved just a few steps away towards The Pastel Tranquility Egg. Wondering if all the baby dragons were as eager and exciting as the first, Mila’s other hand dropped to trace her palm over a pale swirl. The sad note of leaving the excited baby from The Forest River Egg colored her greeting to The Pastel Tranquility Egg, “Hello little one. Are you as eager to meet us as we are to meet you?” She asked trying to shift her mood to a hopeful note. Even though she wasn’t sure if she had succeeded in convincing the little dragon, Mila could feel her mood lift just a bit.

Ahlanour still wasn't sure if he was dreaming.

He'd never allowed himself to dream of becoming a Dragon Rider. After all, he was just an Apprentice, a glass-blower. It was unlikely that he'd ever leave Tillek, he was certain.

And then he'd ended up being Searched. A man atop a Bronze had arrived in Tillek, and had been rather quick to Search him. His parents had tried to talk him out of it, as had several other of the Craftholders. But he'd held firm, and eventually they had given up. So, after being given some better clothing that would hold up to the rigors of training, they had sent him off, making him promise to write.

And then he'd found out that he'd arrived only just before the first Touching. Against all odds, he was allowed to Touch the eggs, and would even be allowed to Stand. He doubted he would Impress on his first Standing, what were the chances after all? Besides, he was almost entirely certain he'd used up all of the luck he'd been alloted for a lifetime.

He'd arrived late, and had thus almost slept in, due to spending several hours getting oriented. It was only the cacophony of other Candidates getting dressed that woke him, and he'd rushed to dress, throwing on his light blue shirt and tan trousers, as well as the thick soled boots he usually favored for glass-working. He'd learned that the Sands tended to be very hot, and didn't want to risk being burned and injured his first day here.

The boy's spider-like fingers ran through hair that could be mistaken for platinum blond, not using a brush on it. He hurried after the others, trailing them to the Sands.

His breath was taken away, both by the heat and the site of the Sands. The Sands were pristine, brightly colored, and his eyes were instantly drawn to the Dragons (and how large were they!) and the many eggs that likely didn't contain his future partner. The rules were explained (fairly common sense things, if someone couldn't obey them then, he thought, they weren't worthy of being a Candidate), and then left to address the Sire and Dam of the Eggs.

He took a moment to observe how the others addressed the Dragons, before stepping forward himself. The Candidate (whom no one else would recognize, apparently a stranger who had wandered onto the Sands) then stepped forward, bowing politely at the Queen and the Sire. "Queen Mother, Sire, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to Touch your eggs and, if we are lucky, to consider them as our Partners."

Then he would step toward the Eggs, looking them over. Which one should he Touch first? They all looked so wonderful... After a moment, he approached the Blood Spots Egg, and carefully knelt next to it, sitting on his heels. The spots on it drew his eye, and he carefully reached out to touch it, fingers and palm resting gently on the egg. "So we're supposed to talk to you, although I don't know if you can hear me." he murmured. His voice dropped to a whisper, and he said, "Frankly, I feel rather foolish." Raising his voice a bit so that the Dragonet inside could hear him, he said, "My name is Ahlanour, egg. I arrived here only yesterday, so please forgive me if I do something wrong."

Nali had been through many a clutch touching in her turns as a candidate. Since she had entered candidacy almost as soon as she was eligible, Nali had been to quite a few egg touchings. While none really excited her as much as her first had, Nali still always felt a thrill on the days that the candidates were escorted into the hatching sands to get to know the eggs prior to the hatching. It was fun feeling the warm eggs, searching for any sounds or movements inside, and guessing what might be in what egg.

Once on the sands, Nali didn't go for the clutch immediately though. She looked over the clutch, keeping her hands to herself for a few moments. Not because she wasn't eager. She definitely was, but she didn't want to look too eager. Especially because the first egg she stopped at to brush her hands over at last was the largest egg in the clutch, The Snake Tracks Egg.

"I'm sure everyone is interested in you. I am too of course," Nali said to the egg, not at all feeling silly talking to the shell as she was used to muttering words of encouragement and hope to the eggs, hoping one would be for her. She couldn't deny her hopes for this egg. "Your shell is yellow, but maybe not quite gold. You could be a big bronze inside there," she paused to glance around for anyone else before getting close to the shell to whisper, "But I hope you surprise us all and prove you really are a Queen in there."

Probably out of the group, Kole wasn't necessarily the most excited for the touching. Of course, there was a sort of small thrill to be had to walk among the eggs before they hatched, the mother dragon watching you with a wary gaze. They were some of the few who got to be this close to the eggs, especially before they were even ready to hatch, but Kole had experienced a few by now, and perhaps being a little older than some of the others made the excitement wear off faster. That allowed Kole to come into the sands and walk among the eggs calmly yet confidently, wondering if an egg would be for him this time.

He looked them over, until one drew him in with its shell. Perhaps not the largest so not the quickest to grab attention like that big yellow egg on the sands did, but Kole liked the look of it, and rested his palms against The Summer Beach Egg's shell, feeling the warmth of life within.

"You remind me of the beaches at Southern Seahold that I saw every day working at the docks." He ran his hands over the shell, feeling the slightly textured surface beneath his fingertips. "If you Impress to me, maybe I'll try to keep a piece of your shell and I can show you the beaches when you grow up." Of course, Kole couldn't help but dream of if this dragon in this egg would be his, thinking up potentials for that possible future.

Raevin was one of the candidates who had been around since becoming eligible to stand. He wasn't discouraged by how long he had been standing, believing truly his time would come one day, and his dragon would find him. So Raevin came to the touching with a smile. He had sent away Torin though, so the bronze firelizard wouldn't get upset if any of the other candidates came too close. He kept silent tabs on his continued bullies though, and stayed away from them, though he was sure they wouldn't be stupid enough to start anything among the clutch. He wasn't afraid of them, he just didn't want their presence to sour this experience, as Raevin felt few things topped getting to touch the eggs.

Honestly, Raevin couldn't help but be drawn to the larger eggs. With his dreams of following in his father's footsteps, he couldn't help but imagine himself on a bronze as well. Part of him believed that was why he hadn't Impressed yet, that Bronzes were rare and the right one hadn't hatched for him yet. So it perhaps was no surprise that one of the first eggs he stopped at was the somewhat large Mud Bath Egg.

"I'll bet you're a strong one in there," Raevin commented to the egg, brushing his hands along the strong, thick shell. "I can't wait to see you hatch."

Mentioned: Daela
Image - The Rusted Iron Egg to Varric

"Hello? I don't know if you can hear me, but I suppose it doesn't hurt to say something. My name is Varric, and I can't help but wonder what you contain."

The inhabitant inside the shell seems calm and serence, though is that a hint of humor you feel coming from it? As if it would tell you 'It's a dragon laid egg, I would assume that makes me, in fact, a dragon.' It isn't a mean sort of observation, but merely a logical one. "It is a pleasure to meet you, Varric." The inhabitant then falls silent, not because it is bored or does not wish to speak with you anymore, it is merely taking time to get to know you as much as it can with the shell of the egg in the way.
It was simple, and short and sweet, the emotions and sensations that come from the egg. For Vare, that is just fine. He's just happy to be in this situation, and to be with the eggs. He nods and allows himself to linger just a little bit longer, because it would be a discourteous gesture to move away from the egg so soon, and he doesn't want to seem like he's ungrateful to the dragon inside for it taking a moment to visit with him. "I'm glad you've rise to the surface just long enough to "say" hello." He admits, and then a tingle rises to the back of his neck, and he knows that sensation.

He looks over his shoulder and sees her looking at him, smiling. Dancer of his Heart! He smiles in return, not sure if she'll catch it before her gaze flutters away or not, but he doesn't let it linger just in case the Candidatemasters happen to look in their direction. All the same, it was there, and he was glad to see her. It had given him the chance to see the egg she had been at. He finally departs his egg, and goes to the one she was at, deciding that's the one he was meant to be at next.

He settles next to The Pastel Tranquility Egg, and sets his hands on it, glancing again in Daela's direction, and even if the egg can't see, he subtly points her out to it. "See her? The one that was just with you? If you're mine, I hope she's able to dance her way into your heart like she did into mine."

Tag ~ mentions Varric
Image - The Pastel Tranquility Egg to Daela

"You must be eager to greet the world little one, and you will soon enough."

"I am eager for that yes, but I wonder if the world is ready to meet me." The inhabitant inside mused out loud. For a moment it hums silently to itself as it thinks of its entrance into the world. It has to be perfect, just perfect, so the person it picks knows exactly how special they are that they have decided to impress to them. Would it pick you? Well, only it knows who it is going to choose and that juicy little secret is all for itself to enjoy right now.


The young woman smiled despite herself as she listened to the feelings coming from the egg. Was that a hint of insecurity? Or perhaps, the hatchling just wanted everything to be perfect, included it's bonded, and for the briefest moment, Daela had the breath of hope it could be her. With another gentle pat, she leaned in a little closer for a parting whisper. "Everyone is going to love you darling, don't you worry about a thing." And with the softest hum of approval, and gave the shell a final caress and moved aside for the next candidate to have their turn.

Little did she know, the next one would be the man she'd been eyeing all along, until she gave a longing look over her shoulder at the pastel egg and saw Varric stepping up beside it now, whispering something. Her heart fluttered for a moment inside her chest, and a smile crept over her lips, but not here, not now, not ever...right? Daela had to stop herself from getting carried away, from thinking such things. She was a candidate now, she was forbidden from those sorts of affairs, and even if she wasn't, she didn't know the first thing, so it was best to steer clear...for now.

Brushing aside those wanton thoughts, the young woman moved a little further into the clutch and spotted a rather large, but fairly plain egg that seemed to call to her. Daela moved gracefully toward The Mossy Hill Egg, humming softly to herself and the eggs all the while. As she approached, she reached out tentatively and then caressed the shell ever so gently as she stepped in just a little closer to speak to the hatchling within. "Hello there sweet thing." She started, hoping to get a sense of a reaction from the baby inside. "We all are anxious to meet you, and wish nothing but the best for you little one." The candidate said with a smile, the softest hum echoing in her throat for the little one inside.

Second Round
Image - The Through the Leaves Egg to Sunaia

"You look like autumn in the Telgari ranges."

A wave of happiness rushes through you upon first touch of this subdued colored egg. "I can't say that I know where that is, but if that is the case I will have to go see it some time." You can tell the inhabitant is rather pleased with the idea that something out there is similar to them. "How are you doing? It's not often I get a lovely person wanting to spend time with me." They asks curiously.
Image - The Spring Has Sprung Egg to Aranrod

"I bet you're feeling pretty cramped in there, too," she said softly. "I wonder if you are all as excited to meet us as we are to meet you?"

Upon first touch you get a rather cold greeting. Certainly not hostile, but more...neutral. After a moment, though, they begin to warm up to you. "You have no idea how cramped it is." They states drolly. "Not to be rude, but right now I am merely excited to be out, though I'm sure you all are pleasant enough, but I'm so bored right now literally anything else would be a good change."
Image - The Summer Beach Egg to Varren

"Are you calmer than your sibling?" he murmured. "Your shell makes me think of a lazy summer rest-day with no responsibilities," he continued, "but you probably don't look much like your shell, and even how you look INSIDE the shell doesn't say much about your personality."

There is a calm and relaxed air that surrounds this egg. "Calmer is a subjective idea. I suppose I am compared to some, but not compared to others." They didn't know all of their clutch mates, so there was no way to know for sure. "I don't know. I very well could look like my shell. Stranger things have happened. As for my personality...I think it suits me just fine, can't speak for others though."
Image - The Lavender Fields Egg to Niomi

[i["Hello there.Your shell is pretty, like a soft cloudy day. I'm sure you're even prettier though."[/i]

There is most certainly a presence to this egg that is almost courtly. Before you even touch it you feel a proper and polite greeting wrap around you like a shawl. "Thank you, that is very kind of you to say. I would return the compliment, but this shell is only cozy and not a good window to look through." The egg is silent a moment, but you can tell they are scrutinizing you. "You seem to be a very sweet soul."
Image - The Lavender Fields Egg for Fyrnella

"Hello there and nice to meet you... sorry I'm so nervous... I hope you are healthy and when hatched find the one you want."

"Pleasure to meet you as well." The egg sends a feeling of politeness and welcome to you. "You have reason to be nervous. Soon me and my clutch mates will hatch and it will be a life changing day for some. Oh, I have no worries for myself, that I can assure you." There is a palpable air of confidence around them.
Image - The Through the Leaves Egg to Laikanu

“Oh! Sorry little one! Didn’t mean to sneak up on you but now that I’m here, I’m glad to meet you,”

There is a small feeling of them being startled by the sudden touch, but immediately they calm down. "It is alright. Maybe just be a bit more careful next time." They suggested, though wasn't trying to be rude about it. "You seem to have a spring in your step. I am anxious for the day when I can literally have one in mine. You know how odd it is to be stuck in here....and be aware on a level that you are stuck in here?"
Image - The Pastel Tranquility Egg to Halimila

“Hello little one. Are you as eager to meet us as we are to meet you?”

You hear what seems like a long, wistful sigh come from the pale shell. "Dear girl, words cannot express how much I want to meet all of you. How awful it is to be trapped inside this tiny, albeit beautiful shell." The feeling of impatience mixed together with that of longing. If it wouldn't be so uncouth, they may have even tried to leave the shell now just so they could see all of the lovely people.
Image - The Blood Spots Egg to Ahlanour

"So we're supposed to talk to you, although I don't know if you can hear me." he murmured. His voice dropped to a whisper, and he said, "Frankly, I feel rather foolish. My name is Ahlanour, egg. I arrived here only yesterday, so please forgive me if I do something wrong."

Immediately a cascade of noise seems to invade your mind. After a moment it clears up a bit. "I can hear you fine. It's more feeling than hearing though." They pointed out. "You shouldn't feel foolish. There is no reason to. Maybe if you were the only one speaking to a shell, then you could be considered quite a bit foolish, but you're aren't." They reassured the young man. "This is like any other conversation....well, sort of. Treat it as such anyways, and you won't do anything wrong."
Image - The Snake Tracks Egg to Nali

"I'm sure everyone is interested in you. I am too of course. Your shell is yellow, but maybe not quite gold. You could be a big bronze inside there. But I hope you surprise us all and prove you really are a Queen in there."

They perked up at that comment and 'leaned' in a little closer. "Are they now? That's something isn't it?" They seemed almost amused, but a little put off in way to think that everyone was interested in them. However, if it really bothered them, they did not make mention of it. "I suppose you will just have to wait and see what I am. I will try to not disappoint." They said rather coyly.
Image - The Summer Beach Egg to Koleraine

"You remind me of the beaches at Southern Seahold that I saw every day working at the docks. If you Impress to me, maybe I'll try to keep a piece of your shell and I can show you the beaches when you grow up."

At first it seems like this egg is content to just observe you in an almost lazy matter. "Sentimental type, are you? Nothing wrong with that. The beach sounds nice. Then again, any place sounds nice compared to here in this shell. I really do wish I could come out sooner than later, then we would know if we are the perfect ones for each other. Alas, I suppose all we really can do is wait and try to be patient."
Image - The Mud Bath Egg to Raevin

"I'll bet you're a strong one in there," Raevin commented to the egg, brushing his hands along the strong, thick shell. "I can't wait to see you hatch."

This egg seems to almost vibrate as you go near to it. At first it is hard to tell if it is in distress or merely that excited. When you lay you fingers on it a small zap of cackling energy hits you a little. "I am strong in here. That is very perceptive of you for knowing. Perhaps it is just that obvious." It said full of confidence, though they didn't seem all that concerned that they had shocked you. I can't wait to feel me hatch. That time is too far away it feels like."

"See her? The one that was just with you? If you're mine, I hope she's able to dance her way into your heart like she did into mine."

If an egg could bend to take a second look, then that was exactly what this egg did. You feel then that it is looking between you and the last candidate to touch it. "She was a very lovely girl. I see my sentiments are shared with you...though I suspect you feel stronger than just she is a lovely girl." They seem to wiggle with...was that giddiness? Either way you can tell that they are happy for you. "I may not yet be hatched, but I believe that it is important to listen and follow your heart. Best of luck to you."

"Hello there sweet thing." She started, hoping to get a sense of a reaction from the baby inside. "We all are anxious to meet you, and wish nothing but the best for you little one."

This egg seems to reach out to you as you reach it, curiosity flowing across the shell before sending a wave of delight at such kind words. If the egg could have nuzzled you, it would, sending happy little feelings like that of a domestic feline happily purring and rubbing against its human's leg. "I am anxious to meet the world too. I don't know if you are mine, but mine will be out there waiting for me, I just know it. Yours will find you too."

Vare smiled, pleased that the egg seemed to agree. Not in words of course, but in sensation that were strong and very obvious. He gave it another caress, wanting nothing more than to spend a few more moments with it, because it had seemed to agree with him on one of his favorite subjects. Of course, he didn't want to linger too long though, there were other eggs to visit with and only so long before the mother decided she no longer wanted candidates touching her precious eggs. He wondered if he'd be allowed to come back to this egg later. "I like your advice, what you're sending to my heart. Perhaps I'll get up the balls to tell her someday. I just can't right now."

He gave it a final, gentle pat, before standing and brushing himself off. Then his attention turned elsewhere, and he looked around, his mind made up almost immediately. There was an egg. A very pretty egg that seemed to draw some attention, especially from the girls for what it might contain, simply because of the color of its shell. But if it were that, wouldn't it be nestled closer to its mother? He scoffed at the very notion that anything so special would be allowed that far away from its mother, and instead moved towards The Snake Tracks Egg, where he knelt down and placed his hands on the thick, warm shell. "I bet you're simply something small and ordinary. Just wrapped in pretty foil to fool the masses."

To be quite honest, Ahlanour hadn't had the faintest idea of what to expect. It was an egg. He'd touched plenty of eggs back 'home', if Tillek could be called that. Any eggs he'd touched had been rather smooth in texture, maybe with some bumps. How could a Dragon egg be any different? Sure, it was a great deal larger, and had markings that he never thought he would see on an egg, but those were small differences.

So, when there seemed to be something invading his mind, Alahnour startled, and almost pulled away from the egg. After a moment, however, he grew accustomed to it, allowing his hand to return to its position. That was a feeling he'd never felt before, as though there was so much noise around him, but with no physical source. Well, no physical source he could see, after all, and voices didn't come out of Dragon's mouths.

The Dragon's words took him by surprise, telling him not to feel foolish. A rare grin graced his lips, and he inclined his head to the egg, before speaking. "Thank you, egg. I cannot wait to see you upon the Sands. Whoever Impresses to you shall be very lucky."

Slowly, he stood up, not wanting to lose his balance and risk hurting the egg. His hand left the shell reluctantly, and then he stepped back so someone else could have their turn with the sweet egg. Looking around, his gaze landed on the nearby Languid Ocean egg. He made his way over carefully, before kneeling in front of it.

"Hello, little egg. I hope you don't mind me taking up some of your time. Your egg is so beautiful, I can't help but to wonder what you'd look like. Although, I suppose it doesn't matter. Either way, you are sure to be a spectacle, my friend."
