Fancy stars: Starburst Fancy Flitt Handout

Despite being new, this dining hall is very similar to the one back at old Atricis, giving a familiarity to the new Weyr. It is one large, central cavern carved out from the side of the cliff with many tables of varying sizes and seat numbers. The kitchens are attached, and there is a set of stairs leading down into the lower caverns.

{OOC: I will be keeping the list of eggs that have been chosen maintained at the Master List. If you have already claimed an egg there, you can have your character come up to Cehrazad here, or Elan'vis at the Flotilla, and I will handout the egg you claimed. If you haven't claimed an egg yet, you will need to pick a number from those remaining on the Master List.}


Image



Twelve eggs was a fair sized clutch; not so many that Cehrazad was particularly worried one or more would go unclaimed. A few people had already tentatively expressed interest in fact, and Cehrazad had sent a few eggs to the Flotilla as well. Before Morgiana, Cehrazad had never seen a Starburst Fancy Flitt, so she hadn't known that they laid almost as many eggs as a gold or diamond, but now she knew, and she would have to keep track of Morgiana's mating cycle.

She brought the eggs still at the Weyr to the Dining Hall as seemed to be the tradition, and Morgiana hovered and preened over the clutch, though she wasn't acting quite as possessive and paranoid as many mothers did. A little praise for her, her eggs, or both, and she was astonishingly cooperative, so Cehrazad wasn't worried that it would be dangerous to distribute the eggs. She settled down at a table with a large bowl of meat, and sent Morgiana with messages to the people who had already expressed interest. The eggs were definitely hatching soon, and Cehrazad really wasn't interested in a huge fair of flitts.

Turns had past since Solai had last allowed herself to have another pet. Scarletto occupied her time in abundance, while Molly, her canine, have her many loving turns. But after her Impression to Tyreth, Molly's passing, and her return to Atricis, Solai realised it might finally be time to find a new companion for her small dragonkin family. Thus when Cehrazad mentioned that her fancy flit had clutched, Solai threw her name into the hat for handout consideration.

Of course, Scarletto whistled at the prospect of a new fancy addition to the family, for on the day of the handout, with images of flits dancing in Solai's mind, the little ruby simply could not contain himself.

"Easy there, boy," Solai chuckled to her friend.

The fancy flit simply could not manage it, and instead fluttered from one shoulder, to the other, and then back again.

I've never seen him this excited about anything in his life! laughed the greenrider.

Tyreth chuckled back in amusement, Perhaps he is delighted by the prospect of having a little brother or sister.

Once they arrived, Solai greeted her fellow wingrider and greenrider. "I see you have your hands full, Raz" she chuckled at the woman. Though not entirely familiar with Cehrazad, she was acquainted with her, thus felt at ease when she spoke to her with a sense of familiarity. She also developed a particular soft spot for the woman the day she caught sight of the familiar diamond tattoo on her hand. Though Solai never asked, she hoped Cehrazad and her free life would add to the growing testament of why all slaves needed to be freed. It was a truth Solai would never stop fighting for. "Did you still have one for me?"

It was a relief to see the greenrider, and Cehrazad lifted the egg that was most active, one with a sort of creamy shell with red flecks here and there. "Here they are," she agreed, "and you have excellent timing. This one will hatch any moment now," and she started to hand Solai Egg 4. Morgiana made a distressed noise, and Cehrazad soothed her with promises that Solai would take excellent care of the baby, and would adore it just as much as Cehrazad adored Morgiana. A few moments more, and the woman was able to hand the egg over, though a few cracks were already showing in the shell.

It hadn't been too difficult for Shyran to figure out which female flit Hunk had managed to catch recently. There weren't that many Starburst Fancy Flits around. After that it was only a matter of asking around to see who she belonged to. As Shyran had no idea what the owner planned to do with the eggs she kept her ears open to see if the greenrider planned to hand them out or already had a list spoken for. Though it was one of her own firelizards who Sired a clutch Shyran didn't make any assumptions she'll be given one. This wasn't an arranged mating but more one of chance. Having a Starburst bloodline would be beneficial however so Shyran did send a note to Cehrazad not long after the flight to express interest in one of the eggs. She even used Hunk as the messenger as an added incentive.

When she learned it was time to collect the egg held in reserve for her Shyran made her way to the dinning room, eager to see what the results would be from teh joining of her Hunk and Cehrazad's Morgianna. Because he sensed this was his clutch Hunk rode along on her shoulder, chirping and fluttering his wings to hurry her up.

One of the Weyrlings who recently Impressed a very handsome Pewter was already asking for an egg so Shyran hung back till she received her egg. Only then did she step up and smile at the greenrider.

"Hello Cehrazad, I'm Shyran," she introduced herself. "This here is Hunk, sire to the clutch. I beleive you said I could have one of Morgianna's eggs."

Hunk chirped a warm greeting to Morgianna then looked down at the eggs he sired and puffed out in pride. He opened his wings slightly as he chirped an inquiry at Morgianna, wanting to know if she'll mind if he joined her in watching the eggs. He wouldn't' intrude if she didn't want him to however.

Elias loved his little green Nia, she was a sweet little thing, and he had gotten her from his old orphanage brothers as well, of all people. The clutch handout had helped him find them here in the Weyr, so he would always have a special little love for little Nia for that. However, she wasn't as useful for certain things as he had hoped. At that time, he had hoped her to be an aid during guard duty before he had bonded to Arcelias. She never did take to what he needed her for, though she did help him with other minor tasks at times. Still, he had wondered on and off for turns, even after Arcelias was old enough for him to add another pet, if he even should or not. His encouragement came from his metallic life companion.

*You've been wanting another for a while. And another could aid our work quite well. Nia is sweet, but not so good at work. Go ahead and let her know you are interested.*

Elias had chuckled at that, glad his companion agreed with him. So with her encouragement, he approached the dragonrider Cehrazad and politely inquired about her fancy flitt's clutch. So when the time came, he was one of the ones to receive a message from the rider, and he was there soon after, after sending a reply to her via Nia, as messages was the one thing Nia handled well.

Some time after the arrival of the Weyrling Sig'ryn and his fellow Handler Shyran, Elias arrived as well, and waited patiently and politely behind the two women, though he gave Shyran a respectful nod of his head in silent greeting. When he felt it was clear and polite to do so, he stepped forward and gave a casual but respectful bow to Cehrazad.

"Hello again, I hope this summer's day finds you well," he greeted properly, a habit he still hadn't managed to shake and probably never would. He had been raised to show women the utmost respect at all times in public, even his time in The Pitt couldn't shake him of that.

"The eggs are quite lovely," he commented after giving them a look over. "I am still quite interested in one, if you do not mind selecting one for me to take."

And there came someone for the second egg. Cehrazad preemptively started praising Morgiana for her excellent mothering and beautiful babies, as she grabbed an egg that seemed likely to hatch very soon. "Well," she said, "Your flitt sired twelve eggs, so I'm happy to hand over one to you," and she handed the other woman the violently rocking green splotched Egg 5. Morgiana whined a bit, but did not seriously object.

Most of the remaining eggs were moving a little slower than the first two, so Cehrazad smiled warmly at the young man who came forward next. He was excessively polite to her, and it was an odd feeling for the former brothel slave. It was anything but offensive of course, it just felt odd being on this end of things. He was a daywher handler, with one of the uniquely colored partners, that they said were diplomats, right? He would want an intelligent pet, probably, so she reached for one of the larger eggs. Mid-sized flitts were often smart enough to be useful without being divas about it, so she would hope he got a sturdy brown or something.

"Here," she said, handing him Egg 1, which wasn't rocking, but was definitely vibrating. She could feel the flitt trying to get out, and she pressed the pale brown egg toward him, "it's such a pretty egg," she cooed at Morgiana, "you're such a good mother, see how the shell almost shines? He'll know how precious your baby is," and the starburst crooned at the egg as she let it go.

"Twelve eggs, what a good sized clutch," Shyran responded, impressed. She hadn't known the Starbursts had such large clutches but it was good to know for future reference. She excepted the violently rocking egg, using both hands to make sure she had a firm grip so it won't end up falling to the floor. Only when she had it as secure as she could against her chest did Shyran reach for a handful of meat. "Definitely ready to hatch and I best find a quiet spot before it does."

As soon as she turned Shyran spotted Elias and gave him a smile when he silently nodded his head in greeting. "Good luck Elias," she wished him before heading to the nearest table to sit. It was fortunate she did as a bright nose poked through the top of her egg. Keeping the rocking egg cradled in one palm Shyran prepared to welcome her newest addition into the world. Hunk hummed deeply from her shoulder, eager to welcome this newest addition as well. It didn't take long before a gleaming bright yellow lizard broke free of the shell. For a moment Shyran thought she had received a gold fancy flit but noticed the distinct lack of shimmer a gold would have. Also it was rather small even as a hatchling. Sunstone then and a welcome addition nonetheless, besides Shyran didn't want to have too many clutchers among her fair.

"Hello little sunstone," Shyran said softly, catching the hatchlings attention. Immediately he creeled for food and she felt his hunger almost immediately after. Fancy Flits were so much easier to Impress than typical firelizards which made them ideal pets. "Don't worry, I have plenty of food for you."

Shyran offered some meat and soon fell into the rhythm long established through the Impression of many firelizards. Once the little Sunstone was full, his stomach clearly bulging Shyran encouraged him to sleep curled up against her chest. Only then did she take a moment to see what came out of the other eggs Hunk had sired. A shame she would only see half of the clutch hatch, the others must have been given away earlier. Perhaps later she will see if she could find out who else received an egg so she could learn the results of one of Hunk's clutches. Shyran would like to learn if using him as a stud would be worth it, as she did have contacts at Walled Hold who may be willing to pay for his services.

Now that her egg had hatched and the hatchling fed and deeply asleep Shyran noticed the Weyrling who had an egg before her Impressed a bright Ruby Fancy Flit. Elias ended up with a specked green she at first thought might be a Starburst. As she had only ever heard them described as more deep purple and blue Shyran had little doubt this was indeed a green, just with a speckled pattern. Still very fetching and nothing to be disappointed in.

Hunk was quite proud of himself, so far three of his offspring have hatched and found good humans to take care of. He looked forward to getting to know his children better. For now he was content observing the other eggs hatch, humming encouragement and chirping greetings.

There had been a moment of calm in the kitchens, a chance to settle down and maybe have a bite to eat and a drink of something before things picked up again. He didn't know how long it would last, not with his two little between spawn hiding somewhere, but Andreasan knew he should enjoy this moment of peace while he was able to. Not that he didn't love them, but when they got to bickering, the two of them could drive a man to tears - and more than once they very nearly had.

It was as he entered the dining area of the hall that he spotted the handout. Having one might not be such a bad idea. If he had something that he could train to listen rather than squabble with their sibling, and perhaps even deliver messages when he needed them to be... not that his girls were... dim or anything, but they weren't the brightest glows either...

The Assistant Headman approached, but saw others before him, and patiently waited his turn, glancing at the basket of eggs the greenrider was in possession of the entire time. He moved to bow before Cehrazad in as casual a manner as his height would allow, a smile on his face when he stood straight again. "I hope this day finds you well, dear greenrider. Might I have one of your beauty's lovely children, please?"

The largest egg rolled onto its side from the force of the baby trying to get out, and Cehrazad reached for it, worried it would roll away. When the assistant headman came asking for an egg, she pushed the oddly colored thing toward him. "It's about to roll off the table, its so close to hatching," she said, urgently, wanting the egg off her hands.

The last thing she wanted to happen was one of the babies hurt or going feral because it hit the floor still in an egg.

She had heard whispers that there were more fancy flitts up for grabs in the Dining Hall. And considering how Sine was acting, it was obvious the flitter wanted a friend. Not a bad idea at all, considering the thing had been by her lonesome enough that Keket felt guilty sometimes. So when those whispers turned into actual talk, Keket headed for the Dining Hall. It was pretty obvious as she entered where exactly the greenrider(that is what she had heard about who was giving them away, right?) was stationed, as there were several admiring watchers, as well as a few people wandering away with an egg in their hand.

With a polite smile, Keket stepped up, "Good day, I hope it finds you well...And you as well, little mother." The Goldrider nodded towards the mother flitt as well, acknowledging her presence, "I heard you were perhaps needing homes for this lovely clutch. If there are still any unclaimed, I wouldn't mind a companion for my little Sine." The Iolite fancy flitt swooped down to the woman's shoulder, and thrummed joyously towards the Starburst in hopeful anticipation. "It doesn't matter which egg."

OOC:
I just claimed Egg 3 in the other thread.
