A cloudy but otherwise pleasant day.

K'ton, Mizao :: Brown Wendiloth
Sorth had called the youngest weyrlings to the plateau at K’ton’s order, the man standing with the bronze at his back as he waited for the class to gather. Today their dragons would take to the skies for the first time. He didn’t wait long after they had all gathered to explain the day’s lesson, “Your dragons will be taking their first flights today, unmanned.” He eyed them all, sure one of them would be idiotic enough to try flying with their dragon before the month was up. “Each of your dragons will take their turn flying out around the lake and back to the plateau. You will wait until every member of your class has had their turn and then your dragons may return to the sky. You will monitor them closely and keep them from doing anything they are not ready for. They will be flying only to get used to carrying their own weight, there will be moronic tricks or attempts to show off or you will be grounded, which will put you behind the rest of the class. You will fly and rest them periodically throughout the morning, until lunch, after which we will convene in the classroom to begin work on your first riding straps.”
He paused to let his instructions sink in briefly, his gaze traveling over the gathered dragons and riders. His lip curled slightly as it came to rest on the two female brownriders in the class and he barked out, “Mizao!” The girl jumped in surprise, “Get your brown in the air.”
Wendiloth’s eyes whirled with hints of yellow, I have to go first? Everyone is watching… what if I mess up? Mizao herself had been rather surprised to be called out first. K’ton tended to ignore her and Karo’s existence if he could, rather than call attention to it. She reached up to place a hand on her brown’s nose, sure failure was what the weyrlingmaster expected from them. He had made no secret of his disdain for the two female brownriders in the class. Taking a deep breath, she rubbed her hand over Wendiloth’s muzzle, You’ll be alright. You were made to fly. And we’ve been practicing, strengthening your wings, just for today. I believe in you. A wash of love was returned to her from the brown and he lifted his head, still uncertain, but trusting in his rider’s faith in him. He turned and padded to the edge of the plateau, hesitated only a moment, and unfurled his wings, pushing off and into the air with a long downstroke. He flew as commanded, around the lake and back, without incident. He landed heavily, shaking his head at the jarring impact, and looked to Mizao. She couldn’t help the smile on her face at seeing him fly for the first time and stepped forward to hug his muzzle, “You did wonderfully. See, I told you.” He rumbled soft agreement, It went very well, I think. Yes.
“Get out of the way!” K’ton’s sharp order had Mizao jumping back from her dragon, the old bronzerider glaring at them, “There is a whole class waiting to fly, in case you hadn’t noticed.” Without waiting for any sort of response, K’ton picked out the next pair to go. Mizao and Wendiloth quickly moved aside.
