A Feast for Peace - Pearl Feast

Even with the move to the South, Gathers are still a thing to look forward to, though in the Walled Hold they appear to be called Festivals instead. Either way, Gathers and Festivals are a time of fun to enjoy when they come around.

While Elannel was trying to look through the crowd for a rambunctious child, he saw the pearl come up onto the shore. This wasn’t the one he’d approached earlier, and she seemed more focused on the lantern than on any people.

He turned to the young woman from the wagon, aware that she could not possible have met any of the pearls since she just arrived. That was why people were here, right? “We could go down closer to the shore,” he suggested. “Since one of the pearls has come up onto the sand, you probably want to see her closer, and the kid will probably want to, too.” He turned back, then, looking toward Aoivas and the water in time to see a young girl reach out to touch.

There were people in between them. There was significant distance in between them. He could be wrong.

He could be right. She was taller...was her hair a little longer? Why would she be here? There was no way the orphanage would have brought the kids down here, and she was dressed too well to be living there. Surely if she’d been adopted they would have told him?

No, they wouldn’t have. They would have been trying to figure out a way to get his marks out of him without him finding out there was no way he’d ever see her again.

But that might not be her…

“Klah,” he whispered to his fancy flitt. Suddenly there was a use for the creature, a task the brown could do for him that he would not be able to do for himself. “Go to that girl,” and he held the image of the child touching the pearl solidly in his mind. “Do not leave her until I get to talk to her,” he instructed firmly. “Stay with her.” If she wasn’t Yanna, she would probably enjoy having a flitt play with her until he could arrive. If she was…

He had completely forgotten that a child ran into him moments ago. He wasn’t interested in finding THAT kid anymore. He needed to get to this one, because if Yanna was at this feast, he had to know. He did remember the young woman standing next to him, though. He could lead her down to the pearl, the two of them together might have an easier time getting through the crowd?

Klah didn't need to push his way through the crowds, he cheerfully popped between and appeared right next to the little girl's head. Elannel's thoughts about the girl had been excited, so the brown was too, chirping at her as he flew around her head. Given half a chance, he'd land on her shoulder, so that she couldn't get rid of him. He didn't know what was important about this girl, but playing with a child was a much more pleasant task than helping to get rid of fish guts. This was fun!

The Pearl was too enraptured with the flame to notice the young Pernese coming to her. It was such a warm glow, and it was actually warm too. She grew more curious, and drew closer to it. In fact, so close that anyone who knew about fire would know better, but the warmth was nice, and she wanted to touch it.

Luckily, that was when a noise grabbed her attention, the chirping of a firelizard, she stopped her near-tragic exploration of the torch's flame and looked in the direction of the sound. There, she saw a firelizard, and a young Pernese. In fact, the Pernese was quite close, she had never been close to one like this before, but now that she was, her curiosity took hold and she eyed the young Pernese closely.

You are a Pernese yes? I must say you are small. Are you a pup? It had taken a few tries to find the right way to touch the Pernese child's mind enough to speak to her. It was so much harder to talk to non-Pearls, and Aoivas had never bespoken anyone outside of her glint before.

As an apprentice cook and baker, Lolena had been busy aiding the cooks for the feast. She had been among the group that was briefed about the plan, the dishes, how everything was to be served, and so on. That had been the days leading up to the feast preparations. When the day of prep came, Lolena was there aiding the cooks in every way she could, and learning whatever she could as well. She took breaks by tagging out with other apprentices, but was always eager to get back into the fray to help and learn more. After all, Lolena dreamed of one day being the head cook at a function like one of these, so she needed to learn everything she could at every chance she got.

When the festivities arrived, some of the apprentices were dismissed of their work so they could enjoy the first night of the feast. Lolena was one of the ones given the evening off, since she had been working so diligently for the past few days. Likely, the cooks knew she needed to be told to take a break, or she wouldn't take one. Luckily, Lolena tended to do what she was told by her superiors, respecting them too much to argue with them, so she took the time off, and went to one of the tents where the apprentice cooks had been allowed to leave clothes for the feast so they could change out of their work garb.

Of course, Lolena had decided to dress in something more swim worthy, but over the short cropped tank and lightweight shorts she wore a cover up. While it might seem odd to wear longer sleeves to a beach function, being a redhead, Lolena burned easily in the sun, and the longer sleeves would help. Even if it was evening now, that was the reason she gave for hte cover up if asked. Luckily, it was made from lightweight fabric, so she didn't think she would overheat.

Once dressed for the occasion, Lolena made her way back out, and to the food. She was going to taste all of it, even if she would have to pace herself. So she went over the tables of food with a plate, and put on small amounts of everything until the plate was almost too full. Then, she found somewhere to stand and began to taste the foods she had gathered, all while watching the people and the Pearls on the beach.

Candidate pearl Shaylah


Shay had come on one of the local ships that had helped bring some passengers to the father. Excitmwnt had kept her ready and willing. Pulling rope and dodging people. She toed around the ship. Once land was made her excitement changes to feeling trapped. She wanted off, but she had to do something first. Going to a bunk, the one she used, she pulled out her duffle bag and pulled loose a outfit. They were standard material but they were fancy for what she had daily. Putting them on, the white dress and yellow ribbon in her hair, she let everything settle and left the ship.

Once on land she wove around and zig zaged through people until she found what she was looking for. Looking at the Petals and wondering, who would she speak to, who could she talk to or translate with. Did they need a handler to commune with others not their own. She was curious but she wasn't sure how to approach the subject or even try so instead as she thought of what to say to something so majestic she watched them and looked at others as they approached. Maybe she could learn from the others

Tag: Elannel/Ainokesshou and Yanna/Zee
Halimali did her best to stifle a small giggle as the gentleman did little to hide his confusion at her questions. It was a bit amusing to watch the emotions flicker across the man's face though Mila knew it wasn't polite to embarrass someone who was willing to help her out in a situation like she was in now. "I'm fine," Mila confirmed with a smile and a brush of her free hand down her skirt. It wasn't until the crowd moved nearby that Hali realized that something had changed down by the shoreline. When the gentleman mentioned that the child might have gone down to see the Pearls, Hali blinked at the sudden reminder. "Oh!" She cried out with excitement starting to shine in her brown eyes, "That's a glorious idea! I'll just need to get down from here," Mila added glancing down at the edge of the wagon. "If only Pa hadn't decided to teach me a lesson! I'd be free of my prison and more than eager to join you on your adventure!" Hali added with scowl in the general direction of her wayward father.

Quite unaware that his only child was currently bemoaning his behavior, Halian watched with half-interested eyes as the crowd shifted at the arrival of the guests of honor. A trained eye drifted over the area as he took in the various paths he could take towards the seashore without being noticed too much. While it wasn't quite the wilds and forests he was used to, the concept still applied. Soon the brown haired hunter had a plan in mind and all that was standing in his way was the will power to leave his half-comfortable spot on the sidelines. Here he had access to the good food; there was very few folk nearby to drag him into conversation... Though now that he thought about it, wasn't that the purpose of him coming to this party in the first place? He had promised Mila he would attempt to make at least one friend. A small smirk of a smile came to his face as he found a loop-hole in his promise to his daughter. He had never stated that it would be a human friend!

With that thought firmly in his mind's eye, Hal stood up and dusted off his shorts. Staying towards the outskirts of the gathering, the hunter-candidate moved slowly but surely towards the shore.

Wading into the shallows, Nerosali had been keen not to venture too deep into the sea, however relished the lap of the water kissing her skin. Vibrant jade reflected across her eyes as she watched the other dragonkin frolic about in the ocean, a chirp of affection as he brought down a shimmer of droplets, bathing her in the order. “A welcome refreshment to a warm day. Nearly as much as a fresh hour after an oiled hide.” Thrumming her approval, the blackrose pranced about, splashing up a gentle tide against the far larger blue that stood over her like an older sibling. Her attention redirected itself to the gaze drawn by Iolith, calling out one of the foreign creatures that had only recently been formally established contact with. “Such a peculiar appearance,” she remarked. “Scales and a metallic hue entwined with a submissive tinge. Even a gem. Ive not seen another creature like this.” During her thoughts spoken aloud a handful of others gathered near the pearl, an uneasy wave of hesitation to interrupt their moment. Nerosali shook her head, keeping her distance for a moment, not wanting to invade what she assumed was the pearl’s domain. “Lets give her a few minutes with the others. I dont want to crowd her. I know how it feels when youre given all the attention, and it feels like you cant breathe.

Back upon the shore Kinali had taken up arms with his plate, spearing a few of the items laid out among the banquet tables after a passionate kiss. He didn’t meander far from his other half, choosing to keep near him while balancing his intake of food, favoring the fresh fruits and vegetables over a substantial portion of meat. He may not have been the brawniest of men about the weyr, but he was among the most healthy after a rather disheartening ordeal within the jungle. Something that took place over a turn prior now, resulting in Nerosali becoming his, and he hers. That brought warm feelings to his heart, reflected in his eyes as he walked closely alongside the other.

Arms wrapped about one another dotingly, the smith hummed quite pleasantly, enjoying the evening’s affairs. “Can’t complain too much. Were it not for them we wouldn’t be here, together,” he nudged, a chuckle within his voice as the words slipped out. He was in a playful mood, arguably a bit raunchy given the fact that their relationship had developed but they hadn’t yet taken the largest step ahead of them in the current frame of their bond. They wandered about to gather a seat along the sands, cloths set down to save their behinds from being rubbed raw from the grains. Although they ate peacefully for the first few moments, just to indulge in a good meal and satisfy their dietary needs, Kinali could only feel a surge of a reminder that Sid would likely make good on his hint to collect.

Delicately leaned up against the dragonrider’s form underneath the blanket of stars, the dayhandler rested his head on the other’s shoulder, looking upwards a bit deviantly. Absently nipping, just once at Sid’s earlobe, he grinned, whispering into it. “Play your dice right, and you’ll get lucky tonight.

Yanna, Pearl Candidate
 TAG: Klah (fancy flit), White Aoivas

Yanna was not entranced. Not at all. She could have torn her eyes away from the strangely beautiful creature had she wanted to. That's right! She just...chose not to. That was all. Like the pearl had been drawn to the flame, Yanna itched to reach out and touch the object of her current fascination. But before she could and before she could even think to warn the pretty pearl that fire was hot, there was a sudden commotion in front of her. And darting around her. Then trying to alight upon her shoulder. It broke her entranced reaction to the pearl and her mind seemed to clear enough to giggle at the fancy flit. Tipping her head to the side a little and holding out her arm a little to make her shoulder a little wider if she could, she grinned as the flit landed upon her. Then she reached up and gave it caresses and crooned to it briefly. "Who are you? You sure are a friendly little flit, aren't ya?"

Yanna would have glanced around for its owner but her mind was drawn back to the Pearl for two reasons. Her own fear that if she turned away it would disappear; And the voice that suddenly came sneaking into her mind. A gentle lapping of the waves against her senses. It was very odd and not quite like the dragons that had talked to her before, namely Wraith -- who she still thought was rather rude -- and the other that bothered to pay her any attention. It was not unwelcome, though the words that she 'heard' made her habitually frown. She knew she was a child, a pup. But it still irritated her to be looked upon as such. She could take care of herself just fine, thank you very much!

Thankfully, the sense of fairness and truth she'd been taught from her parents and older brother growing up, prevented her mouth from opening in words of defiance. Instead, thank Faranth, she actually said something bordering on diplomatic, which for a ten year old, could be seen as smart.

"I'm a pup. We call us children. But I'm a big pup and can take care of myself. My name is Yanna. What's your name?" It still didn't occur to her to warn that fire was hot. It never even came up into her mind because, well, didn't everyone know that?

Sid'nis and Blue Iolith
Tag ~ Kinali
It is a very peculiar look. I wonder how it is they can stay in the water so long. I like the water too, but I couldn't live in it. Iolith agreed with Nero. He ducked his head under the water for a moment and blew bubbles right next to the blackrose just to be playful. To be fair though. I thought the day whers had odd colors when we first met them. Seems as if we are all a bit similar, but quite a bit different too. I think the pearls are pretty though. The blue had been anxious to head over to the pearl, but Nero was right. She was now quite a bit busy with other people. It would be rude to overcrowd her. Yeah, you're right. Sid said this feast is to make a better impression for both sides. Don't want to ruin that again. Iolith contented himself with lightly splashing the water. They could find something else to do, like hunt for sea shells, or there might be another pearl for them to talk to. One that wasn't so surrounded by people already.

Sid'nis had filled his plate with a little bit of everything, but he didn't pile his plate with food. There was nothing more miserable than being over stuffed with food, no matter how delicious it was, and the last thing he wanted was to be miserable on an evening such as this. The one thing he skipped over was the dessert. While he liked sweets he really didn't feel like eating them right now. However, no matter how delicious the food was on his plate, his mind kept going back to that kiss which made his heart flutter a little....okay a lot.

"Hey, if their conspiring leads to other good things like us, then more power to them." Sid stated before he leaned over and placed a quick kiss to Kinali's head. Even that brief contact was enough to make his blood run a little warmer. Generally it wasn't hard for Kinali to leave him hot and bothered, but today it seemed Kinali didn't have to do a damn thing for him to be that way. They found a spot on the warm, soft sand a bit away from other people. A cloth was spread out before they sat down and then enjoyed their food in companionable silence for a bit. Sid watched the waves roll in and out. The light of the stars and moons shined beautifully on the water.

The contented smile on his face spread as Kinali leaned against him and he wrapped an arm around his shoulders. His head was already leaned towards Kinali when he nipped on his earlobe. That sent a visible shiver from his head to his toe and made him gasp a little in the process. If that nip wasn't enough to stir him, then what Kinali said next made him have to shift a little where he sat. Sid did his damnedest to try and act not bothered, but it was rather obvious. "Oh no...I've never been good at dice." He said playfully before he turned enough to look at Kin. "Get lucky? But I'm already the luckiest man in the world. I get to say you're my boyfriend." He couldn't resist being a little cheesy and sappy, though in all honesty the words 'get lucky' made him feel light headed and excited.

tag Halimila/Lanni and Yanna/Zee
Elannel took Halimila’s comment as a polite request to return to aiding her instead of peering out at the pearl and the girl who was now providing his flitt with a perch. “I’m sorry,” he said, paying most of his attention to her again. Klah would keep the girl from leaving before Elannel could speak to her. It probably wasn’t Yanna, he couldn’t think of any reason she would be here. But now he wouldn’t be happy until he had checked. “I got distracted by the collision, I guess,” he added, raising his hands again to help her down from the wagon. He didn’t really understand the reason behind clothing so impractical that someone needed help moving around, but that wasn’t her fault.

“I sent my flitt down to play with that girl on the beach, she looks familiar from here,” he said vaguely. “We could check to see if she was the one who ran into us.” Surely, she couldn’t both be Yanna and the person who had collided with him a few minutes ago. Wouldn’t she have noticed?

Klah enjoyed the girl’s attention, perching on her shoulder while she praised him and petted him. Elannel didn’t usually let people close enough to them for him to get cuddles from anyone else. And there wasn’t usually time for petting during the day while they were bringing in a catch. This girl was nice, and Klah leaned his headknob into her hand, pressing for attention when she returned her focus to the large creature they were near. Talk to the pearl, that’s fine. Just keep petting.

White Aoivas
Tag - Yanna, Open
There was a sort of humming rumble from Aoivas as the Pernese pup answered, confirming her question, but also offering her a correction in terminology. So Pernese called their young "children," rather than pups. That was interesting, she thought, but not surprising if she thought about it. After all, Pernese were clearly very different from Pearls. Of course they would call themselves differently. Of course, being a Pearl not used to Pernese, she didn't quite understand or catch the implication of the Pernese girl's comment about being able to take care of herself, she did hum some more in interest though before she realized she was supposed to give her name.

My glint-mates call me Aoivas. It's the name I've always had. Yanna is the name you've always had too? Where is the end of your name though? Are you a 'vas or a 'vis?

At this point, Aoivas forgot about the flame that had entranced her, and was now eyeing Yanna, looking her over carefully and curiously. Aoivas, now a bit more at ease, was a curious sort, it would seem, perhaps still relatively young, though it was hard to say just how old she was.

Pearl Candidate Shaylah
Tag:Saitavis-open
Shaylah wasn't sure how to approach the large creatures but as she used her keen eyes to see others speaking and notice it seemed to take a few minutes for a reply she chose to walk up to a larger looking one. This seemed to be Gold, with a black darker color overtone, reminding her of a dark gold queen, she thought maybe it would be open to talking.

Unsure of the sex of the creature as she moved forward, figuring color wasn't the way, she walked slowly forward until she was close enough there was no way it couldn't hear her. Feeling a bit nervous she centered herself and finally decided she would just give it a try.

"Hello, my name is Shaylah, I'm part of a ship crew. Its a pleasure to see you, and may I ask what you name is." She thought she maybe making a fool of herself but hey, better them stumbling over it. She figured maybe is it responded, she could learn more from it as the conversation started.

Dayhandler Lareli and Blood Anubli
Tag:Halian/open
Lareli came across with the rest who wanted to see the new creatures. Anubli had been rather patient with the trip, she had thought he would be irritable or even on the aggressive side. She gave him credit, age was making him more patient with himself and others. They had reached the gather and quickly took to monitoring what was going on. At the weyr their job was to guard and protect, it was hard to go day to day and then suddenly go to a gather and have a break. Firguing it would be best to do both, Lareli had brought her gear, although she was dressed for working, she still had the time to put effort in her hair and put on a simple necklace she had bought not long ago, with saving marks she had finnally been able to afford getting it. Putting her hair up, even though it was wild, she made herself tiedy and went in search of drinks and food.

I am going to take a quick swim, see to the others, if you have need, call for me and I will come quickly. Anubli said and silently walked towards the sea where the others were swimming. As he approached he noticed the BlackRose and huffed. She would rise soon, he felt it in his hide, but he could wait. Shaking himself off from the sprays as dragons dived in, he simply walked until he had to swim then started to play.

Lareli watched as Anubli walked away. She didn't need to reaping, he knew if trouble started she would simply reach for him and he would be there. Going towards the table she picked up some of the fine meats and vegetables and started to eat. Her mouth seemed to blaze with flavors, she loved the cooking around gathers and one of her favorites, bubblie Pies, she had to have.

Passing others as they went in for food, she noticed a man, he wasn't really standing with the others but he was in a sense, standing out of the way watching the crowd. Smiling, figuring on trouble, she decided to see what was up. Walking silently up beside him she looked him over and grinned, realizing he had candidate knots for a DayWher.

"Hello, you must be one of our new recruits. I'm Lareli handler of Blood Anubli." She wanted to seem nice and at ease but if he looked closely, he would see she was at a ready stance. Her feet were square and shoulders even, arms were at rest, her hand was holding the plate ready to throw but her other hand was moving small bites of food to her mouth. Chewing was silent. Her posture would say, I won't hurt you if you don't hurt me. Her face however was open and smiley, ready to laugh and have fun.
