We're going to call for Synsith, Shireth, and Dirce first, Iktomith. He said, joining his dragon in the Weyr Yard where he strapped a final pack to the pewter's harness. Then we're going to set about calling for the candidates themselves. But I want our fellow escorts to be with us as the candidates arrive, so I can have words with them as well before I begin speaking with our charges. He gave the dragon's foreleg a pat, then checked in his jacket for Kipper - the sling he'd fashioned for the creature made sure he could sleep against him without being disturbed, and sure enough, he was still asleep, oblivious to what was going on around him as his owner moved around.
Iktomith, excited for this, crooned, perhaps eager because of how sneaky his rider was being as well - after all, the candidates wouldn't know what they were going to be walking into when they arrived. He called first to the adults that would be involved, reaching out to both dragons, riders, and the lone bondless human.
K'rios rumbled his approval, and leaned back against his mindmate as he waited for the first of them to arrive. Then the dragon reached his mind out to their charges, making sure the Candidatemaster could hear him as well so that she'd be aware of what was being said, that they were getting ready to prepare for their departure.
OOC: Welcome to this dragon candidate thread; next post from K'rios will contain more information on what the candidates will get to look forward to! For marks trackers, this does count as a candidate lesson!
