Date: Dulu 26th
Time: Early Afternoon
Weather: Light Drizzle


Even after Keetin had, ahem, become a man as it were with Elysia's help, Lauruth still did not Rise. However again thanks to lovely bluerider, Keetin remained distracted enough that he wasn't fretting over her as much. Lauruth was well pleased, preferring Keetin to relax and be happy rather than worrying himself needlessly. She would take to the skies when it was time. In no way had he held her back. Even if she did not Fly because of his need to mature more, waiting did her no harm. If anything it gave her a good opportunity. When she had fully matured, Soquilith was near to Rising. The season after that, Paiseantath Rose. Lauruth had no interest in either sharing her suitors or angering her fellow queens. It was just as well she waited.

However there was a lull in winter when none of the golds Rose and Keetin had been seeing Elysia in that new way for a few months. So wrapped up in her was he that when, around the middle of Dulu, Lauruth's hide first began to grow brighter and her interest in the males grew, Keetin didn't notice. At least...he didn't put the signs together. He did wonder at the zultanite's behavior and the change in her hide, though the first couple days he figured she was cleaned and oiled better than ever. On the third day however...it clicked. Lauruth wasn't simply super clean and well-oiled, she wasn't just having fun flirting with the males...she was proddy. She was nearing her first ever Flight.

Once he realized that Keetin kept a very close watch on her. He had announced her imminent Flight and let the Weyr know that his door would be open but he needed to know the day she was going to Rise. He had to warn the goldriders so they could take their queens away-unless one was too egg heavy or brooding on the sands. The good news was that in either condition said gold would be unable or unwilling to actually go after Lauruth for Rising, though they might not necessarily be happy. As for Lauruth...Keetin hoped that with his influence she would steer clear of them, should one try to get after her.

These thoughts and more whirled around in Keetin's head the day of Lauruth's Flight. He knew it to be the time from the brightness of her hide and the way she slept so deeply. He had alerted the other queenriders dutifully and now...now he had to wait. Waiting was so hard though! A part of him was eager to see his beautiful queen take Flight, another was worried. What if his performance was poor and stunted Lauruth's clutch? He at least was not a complete novice thanks to Elysia and he had even sought out a man or two to give him experience with them...but he was still fairly new. Did he have enough stamina, the ability to please his partner? Would it be enough to help Lauruth? Could he control her once she woke with the usual bloodlust that Rising inspired in queens? Could he control himself? First timers could get lost to their dragon and he wasn't sure that was desirable. Yes he had resigned himself to going along with Lauruth's choice, should the rider of the winning male be there, but if he was too wrapped up in her he might fail to give her critical support, or hold on longer, or something.

Waiting was horrible. It really was. He had way too much time to think. Try as he might to get some work done, Keetin could not focus. His mind kept racing over all the what-ifs. He had changed into a comfortable shirt and loosely tied trousers, knowing once Lauruth made her choice he would lose them quickly enough. There was little point in dressing up only to strip later-in fact most dress clothes were horrible for that. Too many finicky little things to undo to get the clothes off. He had no interest in his clothes literally being ripped off out of frustration that removing them was taking too long.

Shards I really am overthinking this aren't I? he though, leaning back in his chair and closing his eyes with a sigh.

Yet as his eyes closed Lauruth's opened, whirling violently red. The zultanite had been sleeping so deeply, her presence soft in the back of Keetin's mind. Now however as she surged to her feet and took off into the drizzling rain that had started falling around the time of the midday meal, her presence exploded into a fiery inferno of need.

Keetin's eyes flew open a second later, his dragon's lust slamming into him. No time left to think and worry. He had to get to his sleeping quarters, had to stop Lauruth from- No! Blood only!

Agitated by the heat rising in her Lauruth growled and pushed back against her rider's demand. Already she had taken down her first herdbeast and she wanted to devour it, not blood. Keetin however kept up a very firm insistence even as he raced for where he needed to be.

Please Lauruth, blood! You want to have the best Flight possible and you cannot do that with heavy meat weighing you down! Why he was trying to reason with a lust-addled dragon he had no clue, particularly when her fire was spilling over into him. She was not yet taking him over so much that he would let her get away with gorging herself however. Blood, only blood, he repeated as he finally came to a stop. Good, he was in position and as ready as he would ever be, at least for this Flight. Experience would aid him in the future but as of right now he had none. He was getting his first experience with his proddy zultanite right now.

With a final snarl at the restriction being placed upon her Lauruth bit into the neck of the beast and started draining it dry. At least blood was better than fighting with her rider and getting nothing of the beast into her. Already she could sense the males gathering, feel their eager anticipation. Unlike other dragons though she was not overly aggressive, snorting at them all. Only one would have the pleasure and privilege of being her mate this day. Only the best of them all would do. And none would be able to make the choice for her; she would see to that. They could Chase to their hearts' content but she would decide who was worthy of being her mate.

Two more herdbeasts fell, involuntarily donating their blood to her cause. And as the energy from their blood began to course through her Lauruth felt a new need tug at her. She raised her head, licking at her muzzle and forgetting all about trying to gorge herself. Meat was not what she needed. No, she needed the sky!

With a roar of challenge to the males she launched herself, wings beating hard as she sought the cooling touch of the clouds. Perhaps she might try leading them through to the sun, though she rather liked being the only sun they would see in the sky now.

I see you down there, eager for your prize, she taunted as she worked to get higher and higher, to keep ahead of them. But are any of you worthy to twine with the sun? Her hide might not be golden but it glowed nonetheless and the sheen that adorned it was very much gold. She was their guiding light in the clouds and rain today. She was the burning sun, the only sun in the sky. Who would manage to win a Flight with the sun?

Below, Keetin felt himself slipping. From the moment Lauruth took off her presence in his mind grew stronger, her needs becoming his own. His pool of suitors was much smaller than her own though. What part of Keetin remained noted Elysia and vowed that if the human half of Lauruth's choice was not present the bluerider would take their place. That much he was willing to claim for himself. After all he could hardly force the rider of the winning dragon to come to him nor would he want to. If he had a choice he would gladly make it..

There were many dragons in Atricis and Siorbheth didn't remember any of them during the time he and his rider were still North. Now that they returned and became a part of New Atricis he was getting to know them. By now he knew all the dragons of White Dawn and learned to respect the Zultanite Wingleader who lead them. When another Zultanite started showing signs she will rise soon, Siorbheth took interest even though he didn't know her at all, at least not on a personal level. As Zultanite's weren't very common, in fact about as rare as golds, it was hard not to know each one by name at least, if not anyway else.

Siorbheth couldn't miss her flirtations with some of the other males and more out of curiosity he did exchange a few pleasantries with her, more out of interest to get to know her than intention to give chase when she did Rise to mate. However, by the time she did Siorbheth found his blood start boiling as his passions were roused. It had been quite some time since he last chased and he had never chased such a large girl before. In the past it was always the greens but now something about her just called to him and he decided to except the challenge.

Perched up by the dragon pavilions, Siorbheth watched Lauruth blood her kills and admired her fierceness. His own eyes were whirling rut red in anticipation. Unlike the greens he had chanced in the past Lauruth was a good ten feet longer than he was and likely having far better endurance and staying power than he did but Siorbheth was up to the challenge. He was an active blue and very clever and he certainly used all his strengths when needed. That very cleverness kept him up high so when the Zultanite took to the air he would already be in a position to intercept her without the need to fight against gravity in the initial takeoff. It will conserve energy he will need later on in the Flight.

R'mia was enjoying his midday lunch when he felt lust creep into his groin in such a way he recognized it as flightlust. It caught him by surprise as he was long used to the fact Siorbheth was rather picky about who he chased and he hadn't seen the blue being overly friendly with any particular green lately.

This is unexpected, who will you be Chasing? R'mia inquired. Even as he asked the question he recalled seeing a Zultanite looking rather proddy the day before. He had dismissed her as being too big and out of Siorbheth's league for potential chasing.

<You may have dismissed her but I have not. She is very impressive and I think sometimes the best way to get to know a dragon is to show you are interested. Don't you?> Siorbheth responded.

R'mia shrugged. Why his dragon decided to chase didn't really matter to him, R'mia was just glad to have an excuse to spend the rest of the day pursing pleasures instead of drills or paperwork. Be a dear and alert Tlamehath I will be occupied and if you don't catch her, Ao'mek is more than welcome to meet me in my apartment.

Siorbheth grumbled at the request but did as asked. That done R'mia left to seek Lauruth's rider's apartment. Now that he knew which dragon he was he did recall notices going up that upon her rising the rider will be available to receive whoever caught his dragon. He never met the Zultanite rider but it didn't take much effort to find Keetin's apartment.

A roar filled the air and his dragon's response told R'mia the chase was on and he better get inside Keetin's quarters before he was completely pulled into his dragon's mind. He took little note of the interior of the room except in spotting the Zultaniterider. R'mia was struck at how young he looked, almost too young but if his dragon was rising R'mia assumed the kid was ready for what came after so put it out of his mind and focused on the chase.

The moment the Zultanite issued her challenge and launched into the air, the crafty blue leapt from his own spot and dropped a dragonlength or two before sweeping upwards and in the process gaining a good headstart over his land bound opponents. It may not mean much in the long run but to Siorbheth it put him in a good position at the start. All he had to do was maintain it as he didn't expect the Zultanite would do fancy twists and turns as greens were known for. He was aware he would have challenging competition simply because he saw plenty of browns and bronzes surrounding Lauruth while she blooded her kills.

>You are not a prize to be won, but a companion to value should one prove worthy of you. We know so little of each other but there is something about you dear Lauruth that appeals to me. Your beauty and nobility calls to me and I am here for you.>

OOC: I hope it's alright to assume Siorbheth was one of the males Laureth flirted with leading up to her flight. If not, let me know and I can edit that out.

Tlamehath had been watching the young Zultanite for several days. Ever since she began to show the tell-tale signs of a female about ready to rise. Since their return to Atricis Weyr the blue had not yet taken to rise after a female of any sort. Ao'mek was a bit confused by that as one of his blue's biggest complaints returning to Walled was that he was simply not allowed to chase the females if he wanted. Thanks to Walled having a much more strict system as far as mating flights went, he didn't get the chance as often to participate in them. Here at Atricis was another story. He could chase after any of the females he wished, but he had held off. Now Ao'mek was beginning to suspect he was saving his energy and drive for the beautiful young queen.

Finally, the day came and as soon as Lauruth was seen flying towards the corrals he went after her. Because he was a blue and he knew there would be browns and bronzes also competing, he too took a kill for himself and drained the beast dry of its blood. Lauruth rises, Ao'mek. I plan to prove my worth to her. The blue informed his not-surprised rider. Good luck then, buddy. Ao'mek said as he then made his way to Lauruth's rider's apartment. Thanks to the advance warning that Keetin had given he knew this day was soon to come and he knew that Keetin planned on keeping his door open. While this would be the first flight he'd participated in with another male rider, he really didn't mind. He made it to the apartment before too much of what his blue was feeling took over him and he was pleased to see R'mia was there as well. "I suppose Soirbheth finally decided to chase, eh? Good luck to you both." He didn't want to assume anything, but perhaps if both of them proved unlucky they may not have to get rid of the residual lust on their own. His attention then turned to Keetin. He gave the young queenrider a proper bow before saying, "May you and your zultanite have a wonderful maiden flight."

Tlamehath was not slow in launching himself after Lauruth as she bounded into the sky like the beautiful yellow-green diamond that she was. He was old enough to not put all of his energy into the flight right away. He would be working against the stamina of bigger males, but he did have agility on his side and he planned on using it. Beautiful ray of brilliance. Not even the sun can outshine a diamond such as yourself. Tlamehath purred to her.

Gastoneth was a loyal beast, but here lately his luck with the females had not been so good. Not that it really got him down, but Cas could tell his brown was itching to prove himself again. After all, he was one of the few browns to have sired a gold clutch and he had just enough pride to want to keep his legacy going. Therefore, it was no surprise to Cas that Gastoneth had been keeping an eye on Lauruth as her impending maiden flight became more and more imminent. The brown even went so far as to make a few kills for her in the days prior.

Then, that drizzly afternoon, the flight finally happened. Gastoneth had been watching her sleeping form with anticipation and let out a low hum of joy as soon as the zultanite took off for the corrals. He followed in quick pursuit. Cas, who was enjoying some time with the twins in the creche instantly knew the moment his brown took off after her. For all he knew it was a queen flight and would result in a clutch, Cas was not one to participate in flights. Instead of heading towards Keetin's apartment he headed instead to find his boyfriend. Hopefully the man would not be too busy to join him for the flight.

Gastoneth waited with as much patience as possible as Lauruth made her kills. Then, with mighty wings, he thrust himself into the air after her. Being a zultanite she would likely have more males to give him competition, but he would prove his worth to her. How could I, a lowly brown, ever truly be worthy of a precious thing like you? He crooned to her. But I do promise to be the best sire and a caring mate if you would be so gracious to grant me the chance.

Mnenomth was not at all pleased with himself that he had failed to catch any of the golds of Atricis so far. He was an older beast and while he'd been held back from duties and flights until Fox had become old enough, he still had plenty of experience to offer the weyr. He was a leader and he knew it, he just wished his rider would be a little more enthusiastic when it came to getting a leadership position. They were both young still, so in the mean time he figured he would practice his skills on other females. He wasn't an overly large bronze, so he did on occasion have luck catching greens. The opals he didn't spend his time on. It only made sense that he should try his luck with the youngest and only zultanite queen dragon.

Fox was in the middle of a nice sparring match. The light drizzle only managed to help cool him off. Granted, once Lauruth called out her challenge to the males he knew he was done for the day. Well, at least for the right now. Lauruth's rider had declared his flight an open one. The man was young, but he was still a man that was now a full rider. Still, Fox was a bit torn about whether or not to go to the flight because of his age. Finally, duty won out and he made his way there. Once inside the apartment he gave a proper and polite greeting to the zultaniterider before moving back a ways to stand with the others.

The burnt bronze growled and tail slapped at the other males as he waited for Lauruth to take into the skies. They were nothing compared to him and she would see that. Mnenomth didn't have any issue using his size against the smaller blue males, trying to get in front of them. This bronze was not a dragon of words, though, he would show her how much of catch he was and that he was the best choice to be her mate.

Lorcan, I know I haven't done much chasing, but I think I want to chase Lauruth. The honorable blue had informed his rider as soon as he had noticed his clutch mate was going to be rising soon. He'd always had a fondness for Lauruth, but he knew that Lorcan wasn't the most comfortable with flights. Since his own maturing he'd only been in three chases. The first one had not been pleasant at all for Lorcan, who, of course, felt the flight lust rather badly. However, being an honorable man himself, he could not bring himself to participate in flights...not when his heart and loyalty was already given to Isiana. Since that first flight though, Lorcan seemed to be able to handle the flights a little better and so was not as uncomfortable when Hydranth stated he wanted to chase, especially when he had enough warning and could make sure that when the flight did happen he would have plenty of time to lock himself away in his apartment.

Good luck out there, sport. Lorcan had told his blue the moment he saw Lauruth swoop down from her sleeping spot to the corrals. Granted, Hydranth was already heading that way himself when his rider spoke. Lorcan, with Ash tagging along by his side, headed back towards his apartment so he could lock the door and wait out the results. The flight lust was strong, but as he'd jokingly told a certain brownrider one time, 'he had two hands, he'd deal'.

Hydranth, seeing other blues taking kills and blooding them, decided to do that for himself. Lauruth was no green and if he happened to be the one she chose then he would be a sire. The very thought made him excited and want to win her favor even more. The pale blue took down two kills as he waited for her to take off into the air. The warm blood would hopefully give him the added energy he would need to keep up with some of the larger dragons. Finally, into the air they sprang. A canvas of blues, browns, pewters, and bronzes gave chase after the shining queen. You are beauty incarnate, my sweet Lauruth. I would gladly fly with you to the ends of the earth.

Sid'nis was in the middle of a shift at the infirmary. For all he was mainly a rider, his craft was rather important so he saw a lot of his time go towards it. Not that he cared. He loved helping sick and injured dragons to get better. However, it was rather annoying to be in the middle of an exam with a green that had strained her wing and your own dragon decides to join a flight. Really Iolith? He asked as he tried to continue to look at the injured joint. I'm sorry Sid. I told you I might chase and I would so love to sire another clutch again. Forgive me? Iolith said in a pleading voice. It wasn't as if there wasn't warning that Lauruth would chase. Alright, I can't say no to that. Good luck. Sid gave in rather quickly. He remembered perfectly how happy Iolith had been when he caught Chansoneth and then she had laid his clutch of children.

Iolith gave a happy trumpet and then flew to wait with the rest of the males. He didn't pay them any mind as the only dragon that was important right now was Lauruth. He was no cowardly dragon, so he hoped that his bravery and his skills in flight would be enough to impress the young dragon. The light rain dripped off his brightly hued hide without care as he waited patiently for the true flight to begin, then, once she had launched herself into the wet and sparkling skies, he flew after her. I did not believe the sun would come out today with this weather, but it appears an even brighter sun has graced the skies of Pern. He spoke to her.

Sid had to excuse himself from the exam room and send in another equally as capable rider. Then, he headed back towards his....oh shit...without Iolith it would take forever for him to get up to his apartment. He groaned and scrubbed his face with irritation. Instead of trying to get a ride from someone, he turned back to the infirmary and made his way to one of the furthest exam rooms to lock himself in until the flight was over. Honestly, flight lust didn't bother him too much and were he single he would have found his way to Keetin's room since he wished for an open flight, but Sid was most certainly not single. Thoughts of Kinali, of course, ran through his mind but they were not in a point in their relationship that he would even consider asking the man to keep him company through this. Maybe Iolith wouldn't win, but he didn't think such thoughts out loud. His blue was wonderful and deserved to sire another clutch.

Over the last few months, she and Keetin had grown...rather fond of each other. It was a whole new territory for the bluerider, to have these sorts of feelings and attraction for a friend, but it was not something she was shying away from any more either. While at first it had been pretty awkward to think of the young man like that, after a while she'd become accustomed to it, and realized that Keetin thought of her in very much the same way. Above all, they were still very good friends that confided in each other about everything and still joked with each other about whatever came to mind and she still dragged him on her crazy adventures whenever possible. In some ways, it felt like nothing had changed, but in other ways, it felt like everything had changed...and Elysia liked to think it was all for the better now.

When Kelpieth had joined in on the flirting and teasing with Lauruth, at first the bluerider had thought nothing of it. She assumed that Kelpie was just feeding off her own emotions, toying with the zultanite as much as she enjoyed teasing Keetin. After a few days of this though, Elys began to realize the truth of the matter though, and noticed the sparkle of Lauruth's hide, could Hear the way she spoke with many of the fawning males, and it suddenly clicked in the young womans' mind. Before she could say anything to Keetin though, he seemed to realize the truth as well, and they had sat down that evening for a chat about it over dinner.

The zultaniterider made his intentions clear, that he was not going to hold back Lauruth in the Flight, that he would leave his door open to the suitors and Elysia wholly agreed with him. While they were...intimate, it was not her place to keep him all to herself, Keetin was free to do as he felt he needed to, especially when it came to Lauruth and she wouldn't dream of making him change his mind. While Kelpieth had Chased a few times before, Elys had been choosy about which ones she participated in, but she assured Keetin that when the time came, she would be there for him, win or lose. Secretly, she hoped Kelpieth would Chase and Win over the zultanite, to be able to share the Flight with him...but she knew that was just wishful thinking and there would likely be plenty of strong browns and bronzes that would compete against the smaller blue. There was another secret desire though, that even if Kelpieth didn't win, and maybe the winners' rider wouldn't be present, so Elysia would gladly step in as a substitute if needed...though she was still a little too shy to say so outright to Keetin.

The zultaniterider had a pretty good idea when Lauruth would take to the skies and made the announcement early that morning, so for the whole morning, the bluerider had been waiting on pins and needles, her mind attuned to the sound of the Dragons, to listen for the first rustle, to listen for the zultanites' radiant voice to challenge them. As much as Elysia was waiting, Kelpieth was on high alert as well, the watery blue perched on the cliff's edge, watching, waiting, until Lauruth made herself known. The blue could feel how much his rider wanted this, and deep in his bones he knew he did too. He'd known Lauruth since a Hatchling, watched her grow into the majestic beauty she was today, and he had waited for this very day to come for a while now. The day when he would prove himself to her, when they wouldn't be teasing each other anymore and instead putting words into action, and Kelpieth was determined to live up to every last promise he'd ever made her.

Finally, the sage beauty awoke and her lithe form unfurled and the watery blue could instantly feel that primal pull on his instincts, a desire sparking a fire in his belly and Elysia could feel it too. Suddenly feeling warm from the inside out, the young woman paused her step and glanced up at the cliff where Lauruth was poised just moments before she dove for the feeding pens. In that instant, she felt both dread and excitement, her stomach dropping out from under her while her heart leapt into her throat, but her feet knew exactly what to do and she began to run. While the young woman took off through the drizzle toward the zultaniteriders' apartment, the watery blue also moved into action and winged his way down into the feeding pens as well, admiring and crooning lovingly at the dazzling sight of this side of Lauruth.

As Kelpieth took down a herd beast, he quickly drained it dry and went for a second one, knowing he would need every last ounce of strength and endurance to compete against the bigger and stronger browns and bronzes that began to flock around his beautiful Lauruth. Only a sevenday or so ago, the zultanite barely even existed to some of them and it was only her heat, her radiance, that attracted them now, but they didn't know her like he did! They only sought her as some prize to be won. Kelpieth knew she was so much more than that though and wanted to show her how much she meant to him, so he'd been ready for this day for a long time. Red whirling facets watched the sage beauty as she licked her maw clean, head tilting toward the sky and he braced himself, lowering into a crouch and ready to spring at her signal. The moment she took off, the watery blue launched himself into the air after her, and hard wing beats carried them away from the ground and into the freedom of the skies.

As she ran, the dragons' take off felt like her very own, and her feet stumbled briefly as they too tried to lift off the ground. Catching herself against the railing though, Elysias' feet continued to pound up those wooden stairs, cursing her bad timing to be down in the Yard when she should have stayed close. She'd promised Keetin that she would be there, and she couldn't fail him now, on this of all days, so she willed herself to move faster. The gifted girl did her best to drown out the cacophony of voices that erupted in the Weyr, and instead focused on her breathing, on the wingbeats of her partner in the sky, on the feel of her feet running through the wet grass now, the sight of the zultaniteriders' apartment drawing nearer. I'm coming Keetin. She whispered in her mind and drove onward through the drizzle.

Finally, she arrived at his door and pulled up just short of it to give her a chance to catch her breath. Slim fingers ran through damp hair, her shoulder length locks flattened by the sprinkle of rain and that dark brown looking nearly black when it was all slicked back. Taking a few deep breaths, she calmed the heavy beat of her heart, and then managed to walk into the apartment without seeming as nervous as she really felt inside. Weaving her way through those who'd already arrived, she glanced around at the sight of the all the men who'd gathered, but there was only one young man that mattered most, and the femme bluerider moved to the center of the room, where Keetin was standing. Seeing him there made her stop in place and her breath catch, for he looked nearly as radiant as his dragon, and even in the casual attire he was still the most handsome man in the entire room. Her eyes widened slightly at the sight of him, and though she took another step or two closer, she didn't dare come any closer, though her hand reached out as though she wanted to. "Keetin..." She whispered his name longingly, wishing there was more she could, some way to make the rest of them of them disappear so it could just be the two of them. Another glance around though, and she knew that there was no way, and she would have just wait and see what happened, but she held onto the hope of her secret desires, and a soft smile spread over her lips for the zultaniterider.

In the sky, Kelpieth had not faltered once so far for he was a strong and confidant flier, and though the browns and bronzes may have more endurance than he, sheer will and determination would keep him in the air long after his muscles tired. You are more than a prize my dear, beautiful Lauruth! The watery blue began, his croon deep and rumbled in his chest for the sage goddess that led them on this merry chase. You are the light in my darkness. You are the warmth on a summer's day. You are the wind behind my wings. You are my everything. Kelpieth continued, his wings beating in time with her own, though he added a little dip and twirl for her, to give her a taste of the agility that he was capable of, the strength of his prowess over their bulk. Fly sweet Lauruth, and I will follow you anywhere. He added with another low croon and gave into a small burst of speed to break past a fellow blue and a brown to make it a few dragonlengths closer to the radiant beauty he desired to call his own.
This Intoxication Thrills Me,
I Only Pray It Doesn't Kill Me

A'ric could not help but groan to himself as he ran a hand across his face and through his hair. This is why he hated having a dragon like Behemoth. Ever since he had lost the last leadership Flight, the bronze had been almost insufferable. If the young man hadn't already been used to it, he almost certainly would have been more irritated, even angrier, than he already was at his dragon. Behemoth had a lot of pride, as did most bronze dragons, and his pride would not allow for a blue dragon to win a leadership Flight. It seemed as though the dragon didn't hear a word A'ric said. Or, it could be said he did. The bronze pretty much kept the complaining to just A'ric, which was fine. As long as Behemoth was too loud and obnoxious about it to everyone else, the young man didn't care that his dragon complained to him. If he started acting differently and such, even towards the new Weyrleader, A'ric knew they would have a problem. That was something he was trying to avoid at all costs. While he was a Wingleader, and had flown Thread, and even almost threated to go to Walled on his own and find out who had killed Sofia, he really was NOT a fan of confrontation. He would try and avoid it unless there was no other choice.

At least the past few days had been slightly better. While the big bronze still complained, it seemed as though one of the other dragons was beginning to get ready to Rise. A'ric couldn't tell who it was at the moment, but Behemoth was once again acting like he did before any other Flight. So for the most part, the young man just kind of left his bronze to himself, and went about his work. Well, housework that was. Dark eyes glanced around and he frowned just a bit. Today had been a no drill day, a day for all the riders in his Wing to just relax, and he needed to try and get this done while he had the time.

After what seemed like an eternity, although it had probably really only been a few candlemarks, A'ric looked around and couldn't help but let a little bit of a satisfied smile come to his face. At least he had managed to get something accomplished. Now, it was time to think about getting something to eat. His stomach gave a slight rumble, reminding him of that even more.

Before the young man could even move towards the door, he could feel Behemoth stirring, his excitement as he proclaimed that Lauruth was Rising. Of course, A'ric had heard the announcement, but quiet honestly, he had really been hoping the young dragon did not decide to rise today. Oh well, duty called.

He quickly got changed and started making his way to Keetin's apartment as Behemoth took to the sky, trumpeting his approach.

Normally Lauruth was not exactly what one would call full of herself, nor was she overly disdainful towards others unless their behavior truly merited it. Today however, as her wings propelled her ever closer to the clouds, was her day. With the fiery need burning in her she reveled in every one of the males that chose to give Chase. And if anything, seeing the sheer number of them that wanted her, she felt more a Queen than those golds. They were too big, too strong. None of them ever got the pleasure of a blue's company-except Paiseantath she supposed but Verikath was the first ever and only because he happened to be huge himself. He was not among those Chasing her but Lauruth could care less. Virtually every other blue Atricis could boast was in the sky and they were a sight to behold.

Many of the males had sweet words for her, a couple were quiet but through their actions made their intentions quite clear. No matter how they did or did not compliment her however, the Chase was on. Lauruth had every intention of putting them through their paces before making her choice. A devoted mate was good of course but she also wanted a strong sire-and that did not necessarily mean picking one of the largest either. If a blue caught her eye she would not let the browns and bronzes interfere with her choice. For now though she looked over each one, admiring them and soaking up their words. Though words alone would not win her over she did so enjoy hearing them and hummed happily to herself as she ascended further.

Close, so close, just a little further and she would be in the clouds. A glance was given to her suitors before she did just that, rocketing into the mists that were drizzling upon the ground far below. Their coolness was a welcome sensation, meeting the fire of her need. Unfortunately they also obstructed her vision and that of her suitors. Other females might like to play in the clouds, keep the males guessing, but not Lauruth. She wanted to be able to see them, to be sure they never forgot why they were in the sky this day. She needed to be in their sights-and they needed to be in hers, where she could watch for any who were too bold, too impatient.

Bronze and brown and blue, she crooned to them as she dove out of the clouds, twirling to dispel them in her wake. And pewter too. A rainbow of handsome dragons. I hear you, I see you, but who among you is the absolute best? I suppose I will see.

With that Lauruth dove straight through any that had not tried to follow her into the clouds, trumpeting a challenge to them. Now was the time to lead them on a merry chase, to tease and test. Yet while she swooped and dove, looped around and through them, Lauruth wanted to see more still. And what was a Flight without some good-natured flirting?

Using her speed and agility Lauruth decided to give them all a taste, tantalizing but not theirs yet. A brush here, a brief rub there with nose or tail or wingtips, all while crooning to them individually.

You are noble as well Siorbheth, she trilled sweetly when she caressed the blue. He had after all insisted she was more than a prize, a sentiment Lauruth definitely agreed with. I have no doubt you would be an attentive mate.

Before he could get his hopes up too much however she twirled away, angling for another blue. Tlamehath, you flatter me. The zultanite made a point of skirting around him, gliding briefly to let one wing run along the back of his neck. Though I daresay a sapphire has its own allure.

So did good manners of course and the next dragon she angled herself towards exemplified such. He could almost be called a little too humble, though there was something quite cute in that humility. You perhaps underestimate yourself Gastoneth, she purred, moving in to nose his tail. Though in doing so I have no doubt in your words. You would give more than simply your siring ability.

It was perhaps a dangerous game she played, getting so close to the males. Any one of them might try to claim her for himself, especially the large bronzes. Lauruth was careful when she approached them. Only the barest tip of her tail brushed across the tail of the dragon she approached next, Lauruth fully prepared to whirl away should he try anything. This one had said nothing to her so far and had shown quite the distaste for the sweet blues that were Chasing her. There was no doubt he would make a strong sire though as a mate...she was not sure. All the same Lauruth crooned to him. You are the strong, silent type then Mnenomth? she teased. Though I've no doubt you would make a very strong sire.

An eye was kept on him as she dove and twisted around to bump against another male's tail. One never knew with bronzes. Growling, no flirting...he might seek to prove he was the best by capturing her and that would not do. The current male had a much better disposition, one that had Lauruth comfortably flying with him for a little while. You are indeed a pleasure to fly with Hydranth, she informed the powdery pale blue with a trill. But could you really accompany me so far? And would you still accompany me once we were back on the ground?

Blues, blues, how she loved their doting and sweet natures. Lauruth bugled her pleasure as she dipped to rub her head along Iolith's neck. Yes, she agreed smoothly, a very bright and desirable sun. One you seek and follow. Will you cherish the warmth and light if you manage to embrace it?

And then, as she flapped her wings to regain lost altitude, she spotted a very particular blue, one she spent quite a bit of time with and one whose rider was quite special to hers. Lauruth crooned very sweetly to him as she moved in to nose him, giving him an extra tease by licking his muzzle. When she spoke her voice was a soft purr. Kelpieth, my friend for all my life. I know few if any could ever hope to be as good a mate to me as you undoubtedly would. Prove to me you will make a strong sire as well.

But she was not choosing him, oh no. Not yet. The proof she sought was still in the Flight, not in actually siring her first ever clutch. She was not ready to be Caught yet. Again she dove and spun away, again growing careful as she closed in on the largest of her Chasers; one of the largest dragons on Pern. None can deny your strength, both in flight and as a sire, she said, slipping in above him and letting her tail trail along his back. I wonder though, what sort of mate you are? Is there more than raw power in you?

Oh yes she was keeping them guessing, working them up, eager to see their best. They all had to work harder if they wanted to have her company as a mate. Once again Lauruth broke into the clouds briefly, wanting to shake any who wanted to act on her flirting in a way she would not accept. Soon enough though she broke out of them, diving straight for the ground. She did not dive too far though before pulling out, knowing she needed to save some of her strength for the final rise when she was ready-and for keeping away from over-eager suitors.

In his apartment, Keetin noted that as expected the vast majority of suitors joining him were men. In fact...he wasn't sure if there any other women aside from his dearest El. He had known this, expected it, even planned for it. If one of their dragons was chosen they would not be his first experience with a man. With the decision to keep Lauruth's Flights open in order to support her, Keetin had made all the preparations he could think of. Still, at the beginning at least, he couldn't pretend that he didn't want Elysia. Maybe Kelpieth would win, or one of the dragons whose riders did not want to participate.

As the Flight continued though, that changed. Lauruth's need began to overtake him, making him look at the suitors with new eyes. He did still long for Elysia but he was beginning to desire the others as well. They were handsome, strong, and with the haze of his dragon's Flightlust they were very attractive as potential bedmates. So attractive that he couldn't help imitating his dragon, stroking an arm here and cupping a cheek there. Elysia, when he finally reached her, got perhaps the biggest tease of all, much as her dragon in the skies above. Still imitating his dragon, though now backed by his own desire, Keetin paused and gave her a passionate if brief kiss, an echo of Lauruth's lick to Kelpieth bolstered by how dear Elysia was to Keetin. He did not linger beyond that though, need to tease and touch the others along with his zultanite beauty. This was incredible...and it only seemed to grow moreso the longer the Flight lasted. There was no way to prepare for just how strong Lauruth's needs how, how powerful her pull on him became. There were times he couldn't be sure if he was on the ground or flying among the clouds. And always the lust burned through him. How much longer could they last? Surely soon Lauruth would want to be Caught?


((Go get her boys! She'll be Caught on Thursday. ICly, force-catches can be attempted since Lauruth is playing a risky game. OOCly they will fail, though who knows? Maybe the attempt will impress her.))

A voice caught R'mia's attention just before he let himself become fully merged with his dragon, Ao'mek had entered the room and greeted him. "Good luck to you as well Ao'mek," he called back then winked. If luck should fail them then they could ease the sense of loss together.

To see his first friend in the South joining him in honouring the fine and beautiful Lauruth was both a comfort and challenge all in itself. If he was not able to prove himself a worthy mate for Lauruth he hoped his friend Tlamehath would manage it.

>What a day to have a friend along side me. Should neither of us prove of interest to the fine star that is Lauruth we at least can cool ourselves by the lake while our riders join together. Good luck to you Tlamehath.> Siorbheth crooned to his wingmate as they both flew higher and higher to keep up with Lauruth.

The two blues weren't the only ones giving chase, Siorbheth saw browns and bronzes as well. So many males viying for the beautiful Lauruth who must feel so honored. One of the bronzes seemed rather ill tempered but Siorbheth wouldn't let that deter him. Let the bronze try and bully his way past, Siorbheth would simply slip around and use his agility and cleverness to outwit the bulky bronze. In the end Lauruth will decide what she wanted in a mate and companion, a bullying bronze or a selfless and clever blue.

<What a fine Flight of followers have rising to honour you beautiful Lauruth but only one of us can be worthy of you. I do not envy you on making your decision when the time comes. I will fly as true and as well as I am able to show my worth.> Siorbheth called out to her, eyes fixed on her every movement.

As his eyes were on Lauruth he saw the clouds coming closer and closer as she continued to climb. He saw her glance behind and for a moment he thought this was it, she'll choose who she wanted. Before he could say anything else to her or show off with some fancy moves she turned away. A moment later she flew into the clouds and he worried for a moment he would lose her among the gossamer strands. He hovered below, not wanting to climb into the mists, eyes scanning the cottony underbelly for any sign of her dropping down once again.

As he hoped she did come diving down through the clouds, her body twirling to swirl the cloud mists about her in a spiraling display. He hooted his pleasure and drove down and spun around her slowly to show off his own agility. Then she was diving again, trumpeting a challenge, one Siorbheth intended to meet to the best of his ability. But her dive wasn't to escape them but instead fly among them, her voice a teasing siren call in his mind. Her touch upon his hide firing his passions to the point his claws twitched but he kept them close against his body. He would never be so rude as to try and snatch her from the air.

<You are very complimentary as I do not know if I am truly noble but I do try to be. Your guess is quite right, I will be an attentive and loyal mate and not just for this flight either. However these are but words for I am not known to you as well as these others. If you choose another to be your mate then we can be friends if you permit.>

Then she was gone, flying among the other males, flirting with one then another in a way Siorbheth found admirable and envied. To be the only one she flirted with would have been pleasing but she had to see all who chased her and firing up their passions will only mean they will try all the harder to prove how worthy they are. While she did this Siorbheth glided in circles, watching her every movement, conserving his energy for when she was ready to make her move again.

She climbed again into the clouds and Siorbheth started to rise once more only to dive down after her when once again she broke form the clouds. Twisting and arching his body to cut through the light rain after her, Siorbheth did his best to keep up to her. Soon she was climbing once more and Siorbheth hoped his acrobatics and words would be enough to prove he was the best suited for her to be her mate. Putting on a burst of speed to get close he opened his arms, ready to take her into his embrace and twine tails with her should she choose him.

Dark eyes glanced in the mirror, and a small smirk played across the young man's lips as his image stared back at him. Well, he looked decent enough he guessed. Pausing for a moment, the thought of going to Kit came across his mind, although within seconds he had shot it down. There was no way he could go to Kit for this. The sultanate rider, was pregnant, and was due to give birth pretty much any day that. That is another thing that also had the young man had edge. The child was his, and for some reason, he found himself still trying to get used to the fact that he was going to be a father. Ever since Kit had told him, he had tried to be by her side as much as he could, helping in any way. He knew once the baby was born, he would have to be around even more, but for now he just wanted to be there for Kit.

Quickly, he pushed those thoughts aside though. A'ric was starting to feel Behemoth pushing at his mind, and he knew it wouldn't be long before the lust would take over. Glancing at himself one more time, he headed out the door, making his way to the young zultanite riders apartment. Of course, this was not normally A'ric's cup of tea, going to a Flgiht where the rider was another male, but as Ol'ver had once told him, he needed to live and have fun, take some chances. Once he arrived at Keetin's apartment, he gave the young man a bow, paying his respects to the Queen rider. "I hope Lauruth has a magnificent maiden Flight.."

Behemoth followed the young Zultanite closely, not even caring at all about the rain hitting his wings. It wasn't really all that bad honestly, he had flown in worse. It was mostly just a light rain, and to him, it made the chase all the more fun really. Up and up he followed her. Then she dove between them and his eyes watched her going from dragon to dragon, never once leaving her. As he tail trailed along his back, he rumbled appreciatively and quickly answered her back. Beautiful Lauruth, you will see one kind of mate I am once you pick me..
Of course, he was begging his normal confident self, but there was also a flirting tone behind it.

The big bronze continued to follow her, watch her moves, dare to get as close to her as he could, without trying to force himself upon her. Hopefully his stamina would hold out and he would be able to make it until the end of the Flight. The bronze quickly disregarded those thoughts and let the Chase fully consume him.

Tlamehath made sure he spared most of his energy and refrained from doing anything that was too extravagant or too fancy, even if he did want to show off to her. He wasn't the biggest blue by any means, but he did know a trick or two when it did come to chasing. He knew he was not flying among those who were unskilled. He was sure that all the browns, blues, and bronzes that flew with him were worth their salt. Tlamehath liked a good challenge and hoped to prove to himself that he was skillful enough to out fly all of them.

That is a promise, dear friend, though I will hope that either of us will prove to catch the lady's eye. He said back to Soirbheth. Winning the flight sounded the most enjoyable, but should neither of them make it then a soak in the lake sounded like a good idea. No doubt that if they both lost then his rider and Siorbheth's rider would get to enjoy each other at least.

Ao'mek gave R'mia a small smile and a wink, but he didn't want to ignore Keetin or make the queenrider jealous for any reason. Though, to be fair it didn't seem as if Keetin was as interested in them as he was in a particular female bluerider. Apparently the young man had a preference for winner already.

Lauruth was proving herself to be quite the tease with them all. While Tlamehath liked it, he was not the sort to try and forced catch. That didn't mean that other males wouldn't try to do that exactly. Hopefully she would get to make her choice before one of the males did....not that she couldn't bite and scratch off any attempt. Allow me to twine with you and I will be more than alluring, I promise you. He crooned to her as he continued to follow her through the sky.
Image
It didn't take Cas too long to find his devastatingly handsome boyfriend and then convince him to sneak off with him during the flight. Most of the weyr generally shut down when a flight was happening. Just because Lauruth wasn't a gold didn't mean that people weren't affected by her flight lust. Zultanites were a bit more strong than greens or opals, plus with so many of all of the colors of males chasing there was no way drills could continue. Truthfully, Cas was more than happy to be able to sneak away with his boyfriend for the afternoon. Talen seemed more than thrilled to follow after him. It was nothing against other riders, Keetin seemed a very capable young man, but Cas was loyal.

Gastoneth knew he was capable of catching the bigger females and siring strong clutches, but even knowing that he still was more humble than anything. Being bonded to Cas had only enforced that humble nature. I merely acknowledge how wonderful you are, sweetest Lauruth. Gastoneth assured her. Indeed. You will have my loyalty and adoration until you don't wish to have it any longer. The brown promised her sincerely.
Image
Fox gave a polite nod to any and all of the other participants that came into Keetin's apartment. Yes, they were competitors, but he was not the sort to treat them like enemies. He'd been around riders who were like that and absolutely hated it. There was no need or reason to be that big of a prick. The female would choose who she wanted and that was that.

Mnenomth, of course, felt differently. He was the stereotypical bronze as far as mannerisms in flight went. He believed he was the best and he would prove that he was better than all the other males. The bronze was sure that once he sired a good clutch he would be seen as the capable dragon he knew himself to be.

Give me a chance and I will show you just how strong and capable of a mate and sire I can be. The bronze crooned deeply to her as he attempted to fly closer to Lauruth.
Image
Hydranth was not nearly as skilled as some of the older males and he didn't have the tricks that they had. He did have heart, though, and he and Lauruth got along very well. He hoped that she would realize that and choose him to be her mate. He would not toss her aside like the bronzes and browns would. He would dote on her and their eggs. He'd do anything she asked of him.

He crooned and trilled to her at her kind words. I can and I will. Then when we are both back on the ground I will stay by your side for as long as you will allow me to be there. He promised her emphatically.

Hydranth had a feeling that she was going to chose her mate sooner rather than later. Therefore, he began using the last reserve of his strength to try and impress her with his flying prowess. The blue had a drive that forced him to want to prove himself, to show that blues could be equally as capable mates and sires as browns could.
Image
Iolith felt as if he had a bit of an advantage in this flight. He may not have the stamina of the bigger dragons, but he'd caught zultanites before and felt he knew the correct balance of agility and stamina that was necessary to catch them. He wanted more children, so that desire helped to fuel his passion and his drive to continue chasing the beautiful dragoness.

When she came close to him he didn't dare try to catch her. A beauty like her it would only be a dishonor to force her into anything. When she rubbed against him he merely returned the nuzzle though ever fiber within him wanted to twine necks with her so they could dance together in the sky. Surely by this point she was tiring as much as the rest of them were. His wing joints were burning with the effort he had given so far, but he was by no means finished or needing to give up. Not yet. He would see this flight through to the end, regardless if he won or not.

You will forever be my sun if you allow me the chance to prove it. Iolith crooned to her. He was a proven sire and a mate, he would do her well.

The watery blue vowed to himself, vowed to his rider, that he would not give up on the Chase, on Lauruth, until those final moments when she called out her chosen, and Kelpieth yearned so very much to hear his name. Taking her any earlier than that would just ruin the Flight, would take away her freedoms, and the blue would never dream of interrupting such a liberating moment as her Maiden Flight, never dream of taking that choice away from her. Instead of taking it, he would earn her choice, he would show Lauruth that despite all the bulk of the browns and bronzes, it was the heart and determination in his smaller blue body that mattered more, it was his prowess and agility that would win her over and show her he was just as capable as the rest of them...if not more so!

As the zultanite climbed for the clouds, Kelpieth stayed close on her tail until the last moment when she disappeared into the grey mists and the watery blue hesitated for only a moment. Did he dare follow her into the obscure, or did he wait for her to reveal herself once more? Without the radiance of the sage goddess to guide him, his world felt a little darker and he yearned to be near her again, needed to see her again and be seen by her, so Kelpieth decided to dive into the clouds. Yet just as he gave into the burst of speed, his shining light appeared once more, more radiant than before as the sparkles of dew dripped from her gleaming hide and left stars in her wake. Turning on a wingtip, the agile blue spun quickly to alter his course, to change direction and stay close with his beautiful Lauruth without missing a single beat and lag behind.

While the blue only had eyes for the lovely lady, he knew that feeling was not entirely reciprocated in the same way with so many suitors hot on her tail in this merry Chase. Of course Lauruth had every right to tease and toy with the males, but each time she got nearer to one of them, touched them teasingly, there was a flare of jealousy that sparked inside the watery blue, a yearning for her to do the same to him, for her to notice how devoted he was to her. Even as she ducked and weaved between them, Kelpieth kept a steady pace, keen facets watching her every move and waiting for the moment when she would come close to him. Though claws itched to reach out, his neck and tail stretched to twine with her own, the blue had more restraint than that, and as she came nearer, Kelpie rumbled low in his chest, an approving and loving croon for the beauty before him.

As Lauruth spoke sweetly to the blue, he could feel his heart pounding inside his chest, but he knew it was not only his own that fluttered as she neared, for down below the same scenario played out in the zultaniteriders' apartment. Elysia watched with wonder as the young man approached, and though she too itched to draw him closer, to wrap her arms around him and never let him go, she restrained herself and didn't want to ruin this moment for him either. However, Lauruths' teasing lick against the blue muzzle, or the brief yet passionate kiss that Keetin placed upon the young womans' lips, sent each of them into a flutter all their own, a happy place of bliss that only they were privy to. Those kisses were the fuel they needed to continue, to fly faster and further than ever before, to prove themselves to be worthy of such affections and together the blue pair slipped further into that drive and desire.

My devotion to you is stronger than any bronzes' wings, and that will carry us further than any of the others could. I will prove to you today, and every other day that you are the most lovely, the most kind, and the most wonderful mate any male could ask for, and all I ever wanted is you Lauruth. The blue warbled to the beautiful sage goddess just before she slipped away from him again, and he meant every word of it. There was a fire in his belly now, a need to prove those very words to her, to show her how capable he could be, that even though he was smaller than those browns and bronzes his heart would carry him further than the rest could even dream of. Just as Kelpieth felt that fire, down below his rider could feel it too, her whole body starting to warm and that desire crept through every vein in her body. Keetin's kiss had only inspired her for more, to make her blood boil with a need she'd never felt before and even dragonlust paled in comparison. She wanted this, not only for Kelpieth, but for herself, for Keetin, for Lauruth, and Elysia wholly gave herself over to her other half, giving onto him every last ounce of strength she had left to help him power through to the end of this Flight.

As Lauruth dove away from her suitors, aiming straight for the ground, the watery blue held his ground high above but kept pace with her distance still. While wing muscles burned and his chest felt like it an anvil being pounded on by hot steel, the blue would not give up, he would not surrender so easily to pain, not when this glorious beauty was still guiding them. Sheer will and determination would keep him aloft long after his wings gave out, but for now he used the strength from his rider, the fuel from the beast's blood in his veins, and his love for the zultanite to give into that burst of speed and endurance when he saw her beginning to climb once more. Kelpieth knew that the Flight was coming quickly to it's end, and this was the apex climb, he could feel it in his whole body and he propelled himself higher and higher after the shining sun of sage. He would not give up on her, not now, not ever.
This Intoxication Thrills Me,
I Only Pray It Doesn't Kill Me
