With the end of the rains comes added hardship for the people of Landing. Fish have all but vanished with the storms--and while the larder is still stocked, it won't last long. Tensions are high, even as the council does their best to keep the grim news quiet.

Hello all!

Right now I just have the two. I hope to be very busy with them both though so please feel free to poke at me for ideas!

Characters
Karine Juel | Captain, Candidate Master & Military Strategist | 52
- A decorated military hero, Karine is a vain, egotistical and serious woman. She believes she knows what is best for the colonists and intends to push herself and her pilots to their limits to protect Landing and the future of Pern. She has a soft-spot for sailing and for family. She also adores stories and over-working herself.
- Looking for: friends, enemies, romance, anything really!
- Thread ideas: Training with candidates, sailing, exercise, travel, brooding. Anything that can either keep her mind on work, or something to distract her.

Carey Mitchell | Mining Technician, Cartographer & Geological Explorer | 34
- Quiet and unassuming, Carey tends to lurk in the background to offer helpful (or unhelpful) quips
- Tends to think he's the smartest man in the room
- Thread ideas: Anything Mining, or Leadership involved. I love getting him dragged into things that make him feel he is in over his head.

Lawrence "Lucky" Andrews | Vetrinary Student, Horse-handler & Candidate | 25
- A quiet, sincere and stubborn young man. Sure of himself and his convictions, Lucky is a loyal sort with an easy sense of humor and a caring attitude.
- Looking for: friends & enemies could even be fun! I think romance will not be a major priority for Lucky until later, but flirting and crushes are a YES PLEASE!
- Thread ideas: Training with candidates, vet-student discussions, horse or any animal handling, days off (Lucky loves to unwind!)

Lily Reed and Peleth | Goldrider | Previously, Computer Specialist, Archivist | 23
- A shy, independent young woman. She's very awkward, especially around strangers, but she is deeply devoted to the colonies and The Dragon Project.
- Looking for: friends mostly, romance will take some serious consistency and enthusiasm from anyone interested.
- Thread ideas: Training with dragonriders, computer maintenance threads, family threads

So we talked briefly about it previously, but Karine and Ari should hang out! Maybe Karine is a distant relative she's starting to reconnect with? They could go on a family sailing trip!

We need to do a thread with Karine and Priyanka and they need to hate each other. Please? You can have extra cookies even if all they do is butt heads with one another because I just get the feeling the two of them might not get along?

crowfeet yes plz. Sailing is the best! Some relaxation would do her good as with connecting with someone.

Justicar I love this plan. They are a lot alike and I see that being the number one reason they can't stand each other. What should we have them doing? Just snarking at each other over dinner?

Hi there! I'm going to toss my plotter at you in case you want to have a look, but I've got two dragon candidates, a dolphineer, and the current head of medicine if you are interested.

Considering Karine's love for sailing, Kitianna may be a good choice since she is a dolphineer. I'm not sure how Karine will handle Kit's more upbeat and eager attitude, but she does work hard even if she also is rather scatterbrained. I also can see Charles and Karine being a possibility. Since he's the Head of Medicine and was at the egg viewing, they may end up discussing the dragons. I think they both are likely to be more concerned for the potential riders than the dragons themselves, but I'd love to hear what you think! I also have two candidates if you're interested in doing something with them.

I agree that Charles would be a great starting point.

I imagine they're both rather "fun" to be around, her with her Seriousness and him with his Sarcasm. It sounds like good fun. Let's have them sulking darkly in a corner or agree/arguing loudly after this egg viewing.

The only reason I could see Karine interacting with the candidates is to make sure they are certain they want to fight thread. She would probably try to scare them to test their mettle as she's likely to be training them to fight the menace soon enough. xD

Let me know which you would like best!

Charles and she sound great! I think a thread which takes place after the viewing would give them the most to talk about. I am good with doing that whenever you are. If you need me to start it though, it may be a day or two. Or you can start it and tag me!

Hullo //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/smile.gif

A few things I thought about wrt Karine:-

1.) If she is one of Ari's distant relations, does she hail from the maternal or paternal side?

2.) Karine is a decorated military hero. Barry was denied the draft. This will be a source of contention between them that will stymie any initial interaction between them - certainly where Barry is concerned. Karine Juel is likely a well known name among the colonists and somebody a lot of people will look up to and admire. Barry will inevitably compare himself to her and find himself wanting.

3.) Nonetheless, they have a common interest in sailing and the sea, which may serve as a conduit to breaking down barriers between them? If not that, then Karine's newfound affiliation with Ari. Barry will be keen to extol Ari's virtues if it improves Karine's estimations of her. He might not be all too thrilled about Ari throwing herself headlong into danger, but he'll argue her corner if anyone questions her worthiness as a candidate! If it means he learns a little more about the dragon project and what Ari is getting herself into, all the better.

Hi Inka!

I had assumed it was on Ari's mother's side so she and Barry have no direct relation.

I love everything about this. Barry is the best and we should totally do plots with the two of them! Either Sailing or just discussing Ari over coffee is good.

Snarking at each other over dinner, over lunch, over anything would be utterly divine and the perfect thread. Not sure if you're looking for another right now or not, but I would be happy to do something whenever you are because there's obviously going to be animosity between these two that needs to be explored at some point (whether nor, or later, it's all good with me. //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif)

Lily and Ilya should hang out. :0 I have it in my head that Ilya is actually really terrible with computers. Like there are probably grandmas that can use them better than he can. XD Maybe Lily could be helping him out with a technical problem he cant figure out?

You mention Lily is (or was) an archivist, would that include archiving historical information at all? Little Rupert is absolutely fascinated by all things historical, so perhaps he could talk to her about accessing Landing's archives?

He's also absolutely obsessed with dragons, so even if her previous experience as an archivist isn't a help, he might still approach her as one of the less intimidating riders in the hopes of getting a close, first-hand look at Peleth. He's a polite and gentle kid, so hopefully wouldn't get on Lily' nerves too much.

Just ideas anyway, no problem if they wouldn't work out ^^

Lily likes keeping records and transferring information. I think even as a candidate she's kept very adamant journals and dates for personal reasons even if she didn't have time to do so for the colony.

Peleth would love the attention too. So maybe he seeks her out in the computer lab one day and Peleth can wake up while they're there and Lily can offer to show him?

Sounds fun! I'll be out for a few days but if you want to have him seeking her (or someone) out feel free to have her sitting at a computer studying away!

Sooo I was thinking it might be fun to introduce Karine and one of her newest candidates, Fiona, if you were interested at all! Alternatively, I want Fiona to start meeting her fellow candidates, so she and Lucky could meet?
