Treasure of the Harvest Gold Ceresth

Dragon Description

A small angular head is drizzled in deep honey gold's, high eye ridges stand out sharply with lighter hues of paler creams that are dappled with hints of green, blue, and bronze as if a crown has been settled there. An overly defined snout and wide nares seem odd yet blend well with the complete package that is this gold. Her neck carries again those tones of honey before transitioning into the rich color of barley that descends the steep arch that is too thin, making the neck ridges too sharp, and again far to angular for one so small. Her thinness carries onward into the overly defined slope of her back where barley lightens by a few degrees where it slides down over her thin sides offering hints of shadows where her sides suck in over her chest and concave belly. Wings jut outward in sharp angles, spars pointed at the joints, membranes seemingly pulled to tightly over to create sails that are an opaque gold while spars again are a amber gold tone. Hind quarters with pointed hips lead down to the straight boney lines that are her tail, color deepening here to a more bronze kissed gold at the tail spade. Small fore and back paws are deep gold that have been dipped in loamy brown making those cocoa claws seem all the more odd against the rest of her.


Egg Name and Description

Reaping the Bounty of Harvest Egg

Warm muddy hues wrap lay with slickness that seems rather odd being settled upon the heated sands as they are. Slowly it all begins the creep upward over the shell, minky browns turn into softer loamy hues before the first hints of greens take shape. Sweeping stalks sprout upward over one side of the shell only to become sprinkled with tiny white flowers and bright carmine berries amidst a field of dark emerald leaves. Those stalks bend and arch to soften into more more buttery stalks and heads of wheat and barley stretch upwards towards robin egg blues and warm lemon that warm all hues upon the shell like sunshine in a bright blue sky.


Hatching Message

WOBBLE MESSAGE: Lightening flashes, illuminating parts of the sands for brief moments only to be followed crashes of thunder that cause the air to seemingly vibrate with its intensity.
CRACK MESSAGE: Several flashes of lightening come one after another after another, causing shadows the play over the walls in all sorts of distorting shapes and figures. For several long moments after the last flash there is near silence until again the thunder beats down, causing startled shrieks from people in the galleries as well as a few candidates on the sands.
HATCH MESSAGE: Reaping the Bounty of Harvest Egg comes apart like grain running through the fingers of a farmer sending a shadow darkened hatchling tumbling backwards to become coated in a layer of sand that adheres to its hide with the hell of egg goo.

Colorless Hatchling Name and Description

Hidden Treasures Hatchling

Hidden in shadows that cover angles and curves. Darkness hovers over a smallish head, with bright eyes making their mark as they search about. Motion can be glimpsed now and again in the darkness, as limbs move quickly with a stilting step. Wings spread out as if to balance and even with the darkness it's easy to see that they are overly long and almost sticklike. Shadows play against a longish body, slender to the point of being almost too skinny with a tail that's more like a whip cord then anything else.


Impression Message

In the span of a heartbeat the heat that bites at the soles of your feet and your toes is gone, the tiredness you may feel is now replaced by a sudden burst of energy. Your whole world, your life has now changed in that single moment for you, you have been chosen and claimed. « Vanessssa! » rings through your head in a tone that demands your attention in such away that there is no ignoring it. Your questions are being answered, your life is now filled with thoughts of things yet to come. With a downward glance your eyes meet those of the hatchling that has now become part of your world, your life, your mind, and your heart. « I am Ceresth. You should have known that already. » the sultry voice surrounds you in a blanket of protection. Slowly all the noise and confusion of the hatching returns but it's all just background noise to you. « We have must go join the others and I am hungrey. »


Mindvoice Name and Description

Growing Things

Crisp scents of fresh cut grass, freshly harvest fruits and the earthy smell of harvested wheat is paired with all those colors of the harvest, everything from dark and light golds, greens, reds, pinks, peaches. Any color of any fruit, vegetable, and grain can be found in this mind. Faint sounds of laughter from those bringing the in harvest can be heard in the background during moments of joy, the crackle of a summer storm that always seems to crop up to worry the Farmers during moments of anger or hunger.

Growing Things surrounds you with the scent of fresh tilled soil, the warmth of the sun and the feeling of being part of the greater good. In a moment things turn, sun darkens, thunder rolls, even though you are perfectly dry you feel and hear the rain falling down around you, moistening the soil making it ready for that which will sprint forth from it to spread its goodness to one and many.
Growing Things creeps up on you like the tendrils of new roots of seedlings reaching out to anchor themselves the fertile ground. You hear the sounds of nature around you, birds chirping, and the voices of the farmers as they pull offending weeds that threaten young shoots. A soft breeze floats around you, ruffling your hair, tugging your attention to memories of your past as it tries to get to know you, understand you, then show you that you could be the one to make things grow and change.
Growing Things makes you feel as if you are stretching upward, blossoming in preparation to show just what you have inside you. It tends to you, showing to you that your flaws can be put to good use just as your perfections can. The colors of spring shine outward - greens, pinks, oranges, blues, whites and more surround you before slowing turning to the hues of wheat and barley along with ripening berries and fruits. It shows you and a pale fruit with a dimpled side, not perfect but it can still be put to great use as you can be.
Growing Things dances about you, twirling your thoughts merrily, making you wonder and look deep within. It's stronger now but not strong enough, given time it will be just where it should be. It pulls you along a winding trek, with scents of sweetness and others of more earthy tones. It wants something of you, wants you to take the lead and show it more. Show it what you can do with what you think of as parts of you that must be hidden. Don't be afraid of what you can't do, learn and make them things you can. It can grow and change like plants and fruit and so can you.
Growing Things gives you time to reflect on all the things that it has thrown at you, letting you grow and mature right along with it. Right searches through your thoughts, tugging at memories as you feel the heat around you, helping you become just right for the harvest. Are you the right one that will grow and change with this one? The one that will help show all the others weaknesses and flaws can be turned into tools? That negatives can be made positive? It leaves you with those lingering thoughts before drawing back to wait until the right time to leave the shell ready for life beyond for all this has tired it and now it must rest.

Personality (RP Tips)

First off CONGRATULATIONS! Welcome to the life of a Dragonrider, most importantly a Goldrider.

You asked us for an Atypical Gold and I brainstormed and finally SCo all came together with ideas far and wide and we put together a gold that we hope will be fun for you to play with all her quirks and differences that truely set her apart from all the others in many ways.

WEYRLINGHOOD - You will notice that Ceresth is /very/ different from all other golds you have come across, for one thing she's small, not just small but /tiny/ when it comes to golds. Right from hatching you will also notice that she hops more then really walks and she tends to shiver or tremble in moments of excitement or stress. As a weyrling dragon she will bond mostly closely with the males of her class, those ones that are closest in size to her, the ones that except her as one of the boys since she is very much a TomBoy and would rather do things the boys do instead of the things the WLMs think she should be doing as a young gold. She would rather be dirty, dirt means she's working hard « Bath later itch under my left eye please Vanessa. » She will always find away to get around being clean all the time. She works hard, plays hard, and loves to catch all the others off guard with some of the odd things she loves to make sure are laying about. « No one is gonna mind that Herdbeast head laying on that empy cot. » You will notice that she will bond most closely with Chisri's brown lifemate, seeing the good in his Badboy self, defending him when she thinks he needs it, standing right there next to him during tough times. Though she will also bond closely with her pair of Bronze brothers as well. There will be times where your small life developes "Napoleon Syndrome" - Small yes but fear her as she has a temper that could very well have the barracks in a shambles should her siblings not go along with what she orders, or at least pretend to. All those sharp points on her will eventually soften but she will always be rather thin no matter how much you try to get her to eat. It's in those early days of training that you Ceresth will become addicted to the smell of Klah and will even try (and succeed) in getting some down her gullet and she will love it and that will become one of the biggest struggles you will have to deal with…At That Time. The one thing you will never have to worry about is her trying to chew firestone to be even to be more like the others, she will turn her head and say that the smell makes her want to be elsewhere, and for that you should be happy.

ADULTHOOD - Once you are out of the Barracks and into your own place you might want to think that things will get better, that she will become more of a lady that a gold should be….WRONG!!! Ceresth will adamently refuse to drill with the golds wing, no matter how much of an uproar this will cause, how much extra work you are given because of this, she will drill only with the other wings, especially those wings with dragons that are her size so she will blend in (or so she thinks). You will have to contend with her "Small Dragon Syndrome" off and on for as long as she lives along with her Love of Klah - You may even find yourself being pushed into finding her a pot large enough to brew a dragonsized amount of Klah just for her and maybe a chosen few she would be willing to share it with. Her dislike for all things GOLD like never goes away, while she may enjoy seeing other parts of Pern, she will automatically search out the 'boys' and hang with them, doing whatever they are doing while you deal with the business that you have to. Also try to keep her away from the fields where the FarmCrafters work as she'll be sure to right out there in the middle of things trying to order them about and enjoying the feel of the soil against hide and feet

FLIGHTS - During those times when your lifemate glows your life will be come more chaos then you would have ever thought. Hormone level hit an all time high as Ceresth's Proddy time is short from the time she glows to rising. One moment she may be her normal old self, the next she is snapping and snarling at everyone including you, finding the highest point in the weyr and reigning as supreme Queen and anyone who tries to tell her differently better beware. Her flights are Fast and Furious, she will fly high but being so small she may not have the stamina that the other golds do so oft times her flights are short. You will also see a softer side in spare moments with her, she will call longingly to a more favored suitor raining her adoration down upon him in all sorts of ways right down to bringing him a choice herdbeast to prove her adoration leaving you to wonder if maybe the rider connected to the male dragon isn't so bad either. She will always lead the males on a merry chase, sometimes falling willingly into the claws of her flights winners, other times only giving in when she simply cannot fly any longer and that is the only reason. « He only caught me because I was to tired and didn't want to fly back to the ground so I made him take me. » After her flights, she's right back to being herself. She will accept that there is a male in her home but she will make him feel uneasy and try to get him to leave as soon as she can unless of course he is the lifemate to your Weyrmate should you have one.

SANDS TIME - When being egg heavy leads to sands time, you will see your lifemate become so very feminine. While she's not overly picky at first about how the sands appear, she will become more worried once she is nearly ready to head out there to clutch so you will learn to make sure they are all perfect to her standards well in advanced but it may take you a clutch or four before you get it just right. She will keep her eggs all tightly bunched, where she can hover over them and mother them to a point where you may worry that she will harm them. « THESE ARE MY EGGS » will be heard all the time. Candidates beware as Ceresth isn't the most welcoming of them during touchings, she will chuff and make all sorts of noise and you will find your hands full with keeping her in check so that the candidates don't end up running off the sands in terror though she may make some of the faint of heart do just that. Don't be surprised if she also tries to hide the eggs, if she hides them then they can't hatch and if they can't hatch they can't impress and they will always be hers. Life on the sands will never be boring with your Ceresth, since she will also try to keep the hatchlings for herself too but never fear in the end they will all find their lifemates and you won't have to worry about finding a larger home for yourself to hold all of her babies. Life will return to normal never fear, she will go back to her ways.

OVERALL - Ceresth is your lifemate, you are the center of her world and she will do all that she can to protect you from all others. There has never been anyone else for her, you were created to be her lifemate and all your travels were meant to lead you here to this Weyr, to Her Egg to be Her Lifemate. No one else will ever take your place.
