Welcome to the Wherlinghood [Tag- Ember/Yara]

Nothing like the Isil Tunnelhold the wherhandlers used to live in, these tunnels are just big enough for dark living spaces for the handlers and their whers, a small hatching sands, and a small lounge for the whers and any unbonded whers during the day. Wherlings move straight into the dens after bonding.

It had been around a turn since Vithire had become an official Assistant Wherlingmaster, and she had liked the work so far. For turns she hadn’t gained any leadership positions, though that wasn’t for lack of Krizia offering them, it was Vithire had never felt herself to be a good person for leadership. Krizia had been grooming her to take over as Wherleader and perhaps even Wher Matriarch one day, but Vithire had ruined those plans by refusing positions. Perhaps she would take a Lieutenant position if she had the right Captain, but so far she didn’t feel she had that kind of work-chemistry with someone. Assistant Wherlingmaster, though, gave her a feeling of being more useful than just as a handler of a guard wher.

The news of the unexpected bonding of a kitchen worker to a mysterious egg that hatched an even more mysterious wher only surprised Vithire a bit. The unexpected bonding and mysterious egg didn’t surprise her. Vithiresk had come from an egg laid by an unknown female, and she had witnessed unexpected bondings occur for turns. Her old friend Rhea had been one of them when they were both just kids. What surprised her was the wher, a color never seen before, pale and glistening in a color she could never say she had seen before in a wher.

Then she had been requested to take this special case herself by Wherlingmaster Irena. She accepted it, figuring one new Wherling wouldn’t be too hard, and she had taken on lessons of larger groups of wherlings before. She was informed Yara was still new, not trained previously as a wher candidate or handler, and had yet to receive a lot of the basic handler training. So Vithire would be starting from the bottom up.

A message had been sent to Yara to meet with Vithire and Agate Vithiresk in the common room of the Wherhandler Tunnels in the Weyr. It had been sent with ample time for Yara to prepare and be there on time, or so Vithrie felt when she arrived at the common room and found herself a seat to rest in while she waited for her new charge to arrive.

*Excite to meet new wherlet. Didn’t get to see her hatch. Her right? What does she look like again?* Vithiresk rambled on in Vithire’s head, always the talkative male. She gave him a soft smile and patted his hide while they waited.

*You will see soon enough. Be patient.*

It was still strange to Vex, that she was now a bonded handler, and one that was set with a wher in a color that had never been seen before. The two of them had decided to call Yarask's particular hue "crystalline", which the wher seemed to like very much, and because she was pleased, Vex was pleased as well. Though just because she was happy, didn't mean there weren't realities that needed to taken into consideration, such as training, and the future she now had to face.

She grimaced at the thought of training, and being up at night. She still wasn't used to this reverse in schedules, to staying up at night and being asleep during the day. Take the day before, for example - she'd only slept in a fitful manner during the day, barely managing to grab a handful of hours of rest before finally tossing back the covers and making her way to the kitchens out of habit. When they'd turned her away out of reminder of her new station in life, she'd crankily headed back to the barracks where Yarask had been waiting for food.

After feeding her, the wher had fallen back to sleep, and Vex had found herself wondering how it could be so easy, even for a baby, and she'd been genuinely jealous of her own bonded. The rest of the day had been spent practically twidling her thumbs in between lessons and learning about whers, so she supposed despite being in a "snit", she was glad for training with her "official" trainer to begin.

Is excited. Eager to meet trainers. The little crystalline wher said, keeping close to her handler as they made their way to the common room, Vex trying to depend on the presence of her wher to get through the dimly lit tunnels. She couldn't wait until she was used to the dark areas more, but for now, she was going to have to admit that she was a bit blind when it came to traversing through the shadows and places that lacked in light.

Finally, she broke through, and though Yarask shied away at first, she soon warmed to the place and crooned when she spotted the trainer in question. Vex, for her part, wasn't so considerate, though she kept her tone as civil as possible as they approached and greeted the pair waiting for them. "Not sure what title I should give you, ma'am, but I'm Yaranavexa, Yara or Vex will do. This is Yarask, we've chosen to call her color crystalline." It wasn't the most masterful of greetings, but then again, she wasn't the most masterful of individuals when it came to social settings.

*Some here. Might be them.* That was Vithire's warning to the arrival of her new charges, Vithiresk having heard them coming shortly before they entered the common room. This gave Vithire a chance to stand from where she'd been sitting in order to properly greet the new pair. It was clear the woman had recognized Vithire as the one she was meeting as she came right over and introduced herself. Vithire nodded.

"A Cystalline, understood. As for title, you may call me Vithire or Wherlingmaster, whichever makes you more comfortable. This is Vithiresk, and Agate." She didn't know how much about whers the woman knew, just that the woman hadn't been a candidate, and had in fact been a kitchen worker who had been chosen by the mysterious little hatchling unexpectedly.

"We will be handling your training from here on out for your Wherlinghood. I understand you weren't a wher candidate before bonding. I think a good place for us to start is to get a grasp of your wher and handler knowledge so I know best how to handle your early training together."
