Learning the Way Around (open)


With the establishment of the Pearlriders and the Atrician Glint, a home along the coast for the Pearls and their riders needed to be made. Over time, the original beach camp was transformed from a series of tents into buildings and homes. While some of the Flotilla is being built, the primary areas such as Dining Hall, barracks for candidates, and other necessities have been completed. A series of docks with homes attached are still being built for future Pearlriders in hopes their numbers will grow, and each home is fitted with necessities as well as a personal boat that can be used for some water travel as well as living out of for relatively short periods of time.

The thing about being on a boat on the open sea?

It was hard to get lost.

Mostly, Koray blamed his own bad sense of direction- the Flotilla didn't actually seem that big or complicated, for all that he was so turned around he was starting to get vertigo. It was going to be home for the... foreseeable future, so it would do him well to get used to it, but...

"I swear I've passed this building before," he mumbled to himself, turning a corner.

When he'd started out he hadn't particularly had a goal in mind- just to learn more about his new home- but now? He was feeling he'd be lucky to get back to where he'd started. Trace your steps back, and he'd tried that, and gotten more lost than before.

Guess I'll just.... stop the next person I see.

It was easy to know who was and wasn't knew to the Flotilla. The new ones were usually easy to spot. As someone who was in a position within the Strikes, Fali'vas normally did her best to try and keep an eye out for those that were just touching down within the structure of her home. She wasn't leader, not by any means, but she was one of the original pearlrdiers, and liked to think she knew her way around by this point.

Valeska touched down on her shoulder and chirped, directing her towards someone who was clearly new to the Flotilla grounds. Giving the diamond fancy a scratch, she sent her off and turned to go see what was going on with this stranger. Hopefully it wouldn't take long to find them, but through the fancy's eyes - Valeska never went far when she had a duty to tend to - she was able to locate them before too long.

She lifted a hand in greeting and smiled, "Hello there." She hoped they weren't the type that didn't mind being approached, she knew some could be like that. "Sorry, I couldn't help but notice you look a little lost. I'm Fali'vas of white-green Nymvas. If you need a little help, I'd be more than willing to lend assistance."

It seemed the next person would stop him. He hadn't noticed the firelizard at all.

"Ah, is it that obvious...?" he asked, grinning ruefully. "Um, I'm- hk-" He choked midsentence. She's a Pearlrider, idiot, a real one, try not to make a bad impression. "-uh, Koray, ma'am, I'm a candidate, and. Well, I'm apparently not as good at navigating as maybe I should be." He tried to stand up a little straighter, hoping his darker skin would conceal some of the blush on his cheeks.

"...I really just should, um, should be getting back to the barracks but I am all turned around, so if it wouldn't be taking too much time out of your undoubtedly busy evening, if you could give me directions that would be great," he babbled. "Or, I guess you said you were offering-" He shut up in confusion of his own making. "....thank you, ma'am."

She would have chuckled if it wouldn't have been an inappropriate gesture, and thank the goddess only Nymvas was privy to her thoughts. He was adorable, and she wanted to keep him as a son. Nymvas found herself chuckling mentally, and she knew her pearl would never let her hear the end of her thinking. She was just feeling maternal, now that Roni would soon be coming South.

"Don't worry, we'll get you turned right around." She offered her arm politely, and stepped closer for him to take it if he so wished to. "It is rather normal to get lost among the Flotilla buildings. If I can be honest a moment?" She leaned in rather conspiratorial in manner. "I uh, I still get lost and I've been here since it was first conceptualized."

She wasn't exactly thinking then either... it doesn't help that we'd bonded shortly before.

Fali tapped her temple and rolled her eyes. "That was Nymvas. She can be a talker, though I apologize if she started you. Normally, she should know better than to do that to anyone who might not be used to the sensation."

"Thank you," Koray muttered again, trying not to sound too relieved. He took her arm quickly when offered because that's what you do when a lady offers, and he was only too happy to follow.

"Really?" He blinked, and then smiled, and then tried to stop smiling, covering his mouth and coughing. "Well, that's great- I mean, not great that you get lost, but it's good to know... it's not just me."

He glanced around at the sweep of buildings. "I was thinking maybe it's just because everything still seems new, and not just new to me... more like, newly built."

Koray did indeed jump, and then blushed. "That... that was- oh wow. Can I... can she hear me? Can I say hello?" He blinked. "I always figured it was something that had to be, like, an introduction sort of a thing-" He looked around as if expecting the Pearl to be somehow accompanying them down the street. "I didn't know they could talk to anyone."

Fali'vas smiled at that and would have patted his cheek over how adorable his reaction had been. Not everyone was used to being spoken to, but she still found it cute when - regardless of a person's age - they were spoken to for the first time. Still, she would have to have a talk with Nymvas later for that. She should have been a little more considerate of things first. "Not all of them do, no. Some might, but its typically very rare for them to speak to another rider, or handler, out of order like that. The fact that she did was to try and prove a point."

Like teasing her rider, which she did often enough without having to bring the new person into the mix. She nearly rolled her eyes back sharply and decided that she wasn't going to fuss over it too much. "We'll ask her to help along when we get closer to shore, but for now, I think we'll focus on getting you through some of the buildings. A lot of it was put together through group effort - those of us who live here, myself included, helped out quite a bit in the construction of the Flotilla, and a great deal was also thanks in part to the Weyr."

She paused as they started to move again. "Oh, before we go forward, are there any places around here that you are familiar with so far, just so we can arrange the tour around those areas a little bit better?"
