10th Pass, 5th Turn, Early 11th MonthSrunae :: Gold Danovelith
Srunae practically threw open the door to A'zael's weyr, her one arm stuffed with a multitude of blankets, baskets of foodstuffs, and other odds and ends while the other waved around at the occupant inside. "Hi A'zael! I'm borrowing your office!" She smiled brightly despite the sudden wave of surprise and confusion that washed over her, for once having completely forgone her typical shy, careful check before entering. She was in a hurry, after all; these little things weren't going to be waiting much longer, and it wouldn't do to have them hatch in her weyr! Her roommate and her queen would likely eat the poor things.
She glanced back into A'zael's weyr proper for a moment, curious if he would actually come and have a look at what she was doing. Somewhere in the back of her mind Srunae was imagining the worst - what if she had burst in on him while he was nude and with another woman or something similarly embarrassing for the both of them? No, no that wouldn't happen. Shoving that depressing thought out of her mind, she shut the door to his weyr behind her and tried to imagine the best case situation instead - which also resulted in a naked A'zael scenario, but it was much, much more pleasant... and very off topic. Either way...
"If you're naked you might want to put some clothes on~" She practically sang out. A dark smile crossed her lips before she turned her gaze back to the doorway into the Weyrleader's office. Though she hadn't seen the man naked before, she was no longer concerned about it - Danovelith was certainly old enough now to be unbothered (albeit the Queen did find her bonded's mental gymnastics rather amusing) and if Srunae got to see more of him than she had expected, well... it wasn't unwelcome. She cut the corner into his office without waiting for a verbal response, instead taking her cue from the startled amusement and slight touch of disappointment that leeched into her. With that out of the way, the beastcrafter turned goldrider started depositing her various things upon the massive table, very, very carefully laying out the tangled mass of blankets she had been cradling after putting all the baskets of food down.
She hadn't really a clue as to what kind of creatures would be coming out of these near perfectly round things, but given that gemgliders ate fruit and meat and Firelizards ate meat, it made sense to bring a spread of possible foodstuffs. Perhaps when they hatched Srunae would recognize them and be able to focus on a specific basket of food for their potential bondeds. Within moments she had untangled the blankets and was staring at six round, gently wiggling little eggs. Shards! She skidded back out to the main chamber and threw back open A'zael's door, figuring he had had time enough to throw on clothes if he so needed.
Those of you interested in a mysterious pet should visit the Weyrleader's office; there are eggs hatching there!
Thank you darling. Srunae dashed back into the office and went about finished things off. Danovelith hummed quietly in the back of Srunae’s mind as the beastcrafter at last finished her makeshift hatching area. The center of the table held what now looked like a loose blanket nest, the edges of the circular pile low enough that if the hatchlings weren’t capable of flying they could easily clamber over the sides to their prospective bondeds. Around the blanket nest sat six green, woven baskets chock full of a variety of foodstuffs – fruit, vegetables, herdbeast, fish, and more – to cover all her bases. For once she was glad she had managed to avoid Floret's mothering tendencies here - she never would have managed to make it look even vaguely presentable if the green gemglider had been there. Now she just had to wait and see what came out of the eggs... and people who weren't afraid of a mystery.
OOC: And now we have people come and go down the number list! Have fun~
