Month 10 at Dragonsfall Weyr starts off with the addition of new life to the Weyr as Chioneth and Erdenth's clutch hatches, but it also starts off with tragedy as a green dragonet fails to find her lifemate and dies on the Sands.
Saibra and K'reyel deal with the fallout by leaning on one another, showing solidarity as they put on brave faces and greet their guests at the Hatching Feast. Saibra and her weyrmate, R'enh, however, argue after the Hatching when Saibra doesn't want to take the time to check on the two HADs (Hears all Dragons) that were present for the Hatching.
Lanniya and Saibra welcome Loella and her husband Karhal to the Weyr for the Hatching, hoping that Loella might have a pleasant experience so that Lanniya could help her develop her HAD abilities. The death of the green dragonet, however, had the opposite effect, and so R'enh escorted Loella and her husband home once the Hatching was over.
During the Hatching festivities, visiting Weyrwoman's Second, Kapera, from Dolphin Cove, visits with Saibra and offers her support after losing the dragonet. Kapera had a similar experience while Weyrwoman of Dragonsfall and finds the memory disturbing.
Rapids Wingleader, K'ran, who escorted Kapera to the Hatching, offers Saibra a brief respite from her duties during the Hatching Feast by taking her outside for some fresh air and a drink. The two converse regarding Saibra's daughter, Saidrene, who is secretly sleeping with K'ran, and Saibra assures K'ran that Dragonsfall misses the bronzerider's presence.
Late into the night, Saibra revisits the Hatching Sands and is met there by Dolphin Cove Weyrwoman Cyradis, who gives her former Wingsecond comfort and advice.
Erivana and K'yne come to a mutual agreement about pursuing parenthood. Pregnant from the flight she had with K'yne, Erivana decides to keep the baby and include the brownrider in the journey.
Temmin, Talerin, and Anndil face a terrifying "bump" in the night on one of their last nights as Candidates in the boys barracks. Turns out a tunnelsnake had found its way into the room. Luckily for Temmin and Anndil, Talerin stepped up to the challenge of killing the creature.
During the Hatching all three Candidates Impressed becoming, T'min, T'leri, and A'nir.
Greenrider Tarley pays a visit to her brother, Tyrael, in the infirmary after the Hatching. He was mauled by the green dragonet who could not find her lifemate. While she's visiting her bluerider Uncle, T'kev, shows up to check on his nephew. They discuss T'kev's drinking problem, but the bluerider doesn't seem ready to fix the problem yet.
After bronzerider J'ackt's stabbing at Dolphin Cove, Timassa arrives at Dragonsfall to inform K'yne that his son has been injured. The brownrider leaves with the greenrider.
D'hol shows up at Dragonsfall to visit with Weyrwoman Saibra, who is suspicious about his real reasons for visiting. The Dolphin Cove Wingleader insists that he's merely paying a visit. While at Dragonsfall, D'hol also visits with his eldest son, Ma'din. The two exchange words and blows, but part ways on good terms.
Saibra questions Ma'din about his father's visit, but Ma'din gives away no details. Ma'din leaves Saibra with a cryptic statement, that he might be transferring to Dolphin Cove in the future.
After all of the trouble that Ninaine has experienced with her mother and the support she has received from N'call, the greenrider decides to join the Weyrlingstaff since her dragon will not recover from her injuries and be able to rejoin a fighting Wing.
Benna and L'keri enter rocky territory as the brownrider complains about his diet and then the two find themselves in an argument that has unfortunate results.
Greenrider and wingthird, Rorela, corners former Weyrleader, and current Weyrlingmaster, G'nir, in his offices and lets him know in no uncertain terms that she won't continue chasing him, he'd better catch her, now!

Lots of new faces mingling with the old at the Harper Hall these days.
Tasni seems to be settling in. She meets Merlish, who is secretly pursuing a new passion - runners! The young bride of Eilomar does not want Tasni to know her true reasons for being in the Record room, and instead makes an excuse about wanting a new book to help her cook more healthily now that the diet she has put herself and husband on seems to be having the desired affect.
But she was not the only one Tasni bumped into in her quest to understand the Southern Continent. Ueltin also payed a visit to the archives and had a chat with the Journeyman Archivist. Though he has reasons other than just being friendly. The Journeyman has returned to the Hall after a long stint journeying. During his last assignment, Ueltin got himself into a spot of trouble when the Holder's daughter accused him of getting her pregnant. The journeyman admits to tough-as-nails Master Jayala that it was in fact the Holder's wife he had slept with. The Master was less than impressed, but did ask him while he was at their Hall to keep an eye on their visitor from the North and try to find out what she was really doing in their Hall.
Jayala, meanwhile, has been busy with her duties of recruiting female apprentices. Writing a letter to one such prospect makes her reflect on her own journey to the Hall. While she had once been a respected teacher in a Weyrhold, after the earthquake that destroyed Thayan Peak and the moving of the Weyrfolk to Dolphin Cove, the journeywoman was forced to take steps to ensure her career as a Harper could continue after her Hold fell under the jurisdiction of a hidebound Lord.
A possible Northern spy, a Harper in hiding, a young wife still trying to get pregnant by her gruff elderly husband, and a no-nonsense lady Master... And where exactly is the Hallmaster in all this? Stay tuned for more from the Harper Hall!

Bryvin, with an understeward’s assistance, discovered that Stenlis was not honest about the will left by Yriadha’s father and that Yriadha’s brother, the sole heir had been killed in a fire in the family home along with his entire family. According to the will, this leaves Yriadha’s inheritance in the control of her current Lord Holder until the time that she marries or dies.

Danrina tells Bryvin that she is pregnant and it is his child.
