But there are kittens in the Weyrbowl.


The threat of the summer rains have turned into the promise in the fall. It rains almost all the time nowadays, and slowly the rain turns from warm to cold to freezing, and at the last snow begins to sink lower from the heights of the mountains into the valleys.

Last lesson, wherlings. Come to bowl.

Nice to see you're so excited, Carask.

Caralene smiled down at wher huddled under her, and he just rumbled in answer to her. She laughed and looked up, waiting for her wherlings to arrive for one last time.

Aren't you excited, class? After this you get to graduate!

With the greeting done, she resettled back into the accepted norm of sitting atop wher shoulders and pulled her straps back around herself as she explained the lesson.

We're working on Wing stuff tonight. And as you can see, our wonderful volunteers are back.

She pointed out the waiting blue and greens before hastily buckling the straps. Carask stood up and walked over in front of the wherlings and started giving orders as Caralene got herself ready.

For beginning, Carask is lead, Kenzsk is second. Ariyask and Jessk behind.

Go on and get organized. Volunteers, could you please provide our wing with 'stone?

The other handlers came forward with bags of firestone and handed them to the wherlings. The bags were full, and designed to sit like saddlebags in front of the riders. Carask himself slipped a bag up over his head and let it fall into place.

We're running a mock threadfall tonight, folks. Our lovely volunteers will be pelting you with painted rope, and it is your job to flame it before it reaches the ground. We'll run just one ten minute session first, and take stock of how we've done. Start feeding your whers 'stone.

With that, she reached forward and pulled a rock from the bags and tossed it to her waiting brown's mouth. There were several minutes of grinding rock before at last they were ready to go up.

Don't be too worried about getting hit this round. It's your first go, after all. Just try to get a feel for the whole thing.

Carask hiccuped a small burst of flame from his lips and turned so that he was actually leading the wing. Caralene nodded to the volunteers, who all got ready on their ropes and paint. They handed bunches to their whers before the beasts flew up above the area before the whers. Caralene raised her hand up in a fist, and brought it down to signal the start of the mock fall. Carask launched himself forward, jumping high into the air and gliding a short distance, opening his jaws to let flame pour out and burn a swath of rope to ash that floated back over Caralene harmlessly.

Okay, so just to make it clear. Whers on their own can fly in a limited fashion. Not very high, but certainly a lot more than they can with a human on their back. With a rider, they can glide for a while, and the larger ones more than the smaller simply because of physics. This applies only to the night, and whers are only capable of gliding during the day. This may not be how it is everywhere, but it's how it is here.

Now you are free to play out your wherling's first time fighting 'thread'. Please have fun and make mistakes.

Kenzie kept his grumbles under his breath-he knew just how useless he would be in a real Fall-he would likely be regulated for some other duty, if he could be spared-if not, he would have been the most-Scored handler ever, if not outright dead remarkably early.

He didn't know if real Thread had a heat signature, but he knew full well that paint covered rope did not. As evidenced by his getting Scored within the first volley-he couldn't see it to duck, and Kenzsk was much too busy worrying about flaming to tell him where it was. When they got better at flaming, perhaps Kenzsk would be able to get them between before the 'Thread' got too close-Kenzie could imagine an area a few feet or so above the ground, if he couldn't do anything else.

He wiped the paint off with a sigh, and got ready for the next volley-hopefully Caralene's advice, or one of the others, would help. If not, there was a dead Demon handler walking.

Ariya had been waiting for her teacher and her wher to say that all of this would soon be over. Ariya hurried with getting the straps tightened around her as Ariyask slowly got up and walked towards Kenzsk and got behind him. As she got the bag she smiled at her wher who awaited the stone and tossed it to her. "Be careful darling ariyask and try not to burn Kenzsk or Jessk" she giggled when she heard the snort from her green wher and held on to the straps.

"Will not hurt them Ariya" The green watched the others trying to time herself right. She also made herself aware the distance between the others.

She was hoping she could see the stuff the be able to duck it. Then again she knew she was horrible at seeing anything at night unless of course the moon was bright.in this case it was half and half. Making things outlined but not to clearly defined. She was jerked back into reality when her green tried to jump and didn't get much air fell back landing her and her bonded wet paint on their bodies.

Ariyask growled at the mistake and got up not noticing that she had gained a cut when she had landed poorly. Her eyes were slightly tinged with yellow along with her normal blue. "Not able to do what big whers do." The little green stated.

Ariya hearing her wher growl and what she had said, patted her bright green wher on the shoulder and looked around for a new patch of of white rope. "Lets try again Ariyask but maybe this time we should try to gain some speed?" The young female said loud enough that anyone near her could hear. She could feel her wher getting ready for the next round of pretend thread.

"Yes, lets" the green looked back at her rider and then back at the sky.
