Congratulations on impressing a dragon here at Ista Weyr! We hope that he or she is everything that you could want in a lifemate, though this inspiration is just a guideline for how to play your dragon. You are not required to follow all or any of it.

Clutching Message:
Quarith moves delicately, with the graceful air of a Southern Belle making her way through a room of would-be suitors, eyeing each patch of bare sand almost coyly as she determines where she will make her next stop. Finding the most suitable location, she prepares it deftly, crooning softly as she moves sand into place, and just in time, as another contraction shakes her golden form quite suddenly and with some force, and From Russia with Buzz Egg appears.

From Russia With Buzz Egg
Chunks of espresso form dark jutting crags against a smooth landscape of mocha. Swirls of pale cream mirrorreflecttheir darker, shadowy counterparts to become a perfect blend of light and dark, yan and yin. Midst the stuttered jags of cool caffeination, this ovoid seems to have found the perfection of oneness, balanced upon the sands. It is Om.
Hatching Message:
From Russia with Buzz Egg quivers, a small earthquake happening within. Cracks begin to appear slowly, starting within a deep swirl of mocha and cream, and almost spiraling their way out to cover the egg. Finally, the egg begins to collapse, eggshell dribbling off at an alarming rate, finally mostly dissolving to show the hidden treasure within: Pale Faerie Queen Green Dragonet.
Pale Faerie Queen Green Dragonet
Aglimmer with the subtle sparkle of magic, a delicate silvery mist swirls about this dragon's petite form, insubstantial mystery cloaking her brilliant hues and hushing them to a pale whisper. Hints of emerald and turquoise intermingle over the refined curves of her head, marbling and blending in an ethereal harmony that slips and escapes down the underside of her neck as it gradually fades to a ghostgum as elusive and unsubstantial as moonlight over the slim chamber of her underbelly. An illusion of pallid gold gleams tangled around her forehead, celestial glory exquisite but concealed with all her mysterious beauty behind the wisps of iridescence. Echoes of spring gold tip each neckridge with a fleeting shimmer of a fickle kiss, flightily catching the light with an abandon equalled by the may and grass-green vines tumbling and weaving over her wingbones. Caught in the whimsical interlacing, rose, primrose and morning glory blossoms — all gently kissed by faintest silver stardust — peek out from behind.

Impression Message:
Pale Faerie Queen Dragonet glides smoothly along the sands, carefully investigating a group of candidates with a tilted head, before moving on with a faint croon. Lost in a sea of white, she glides smoothly, the candidates parting before her as she moves, ever seeking. As something, no, someone catches her eye, she moves toward a tall redheaded girl, inspecting her with careful eyes. Finally, she makes her claim, fluttering forward to nudge at Tstar.

Personal Impression Message:
Vine tendrils slide into your mind, blooming into large flowers of pale spring hues. Pinks, purples, yellows, all fill your mind, tiny sparkles of faerie gold and silver surround your consciousness, entrancing, overtaking, soothing. The vines start to intertwine with your mind, sliding into the deepest reaches, « You are my life, my love. You are Tstar and I am Elbareth. »

~*~ INSPIRATIONS ~*~

Name Inspiration:
You asked for it! What better name could we give you?

Egg Inspiration:
Ice Cream, what else? That oh so yummy Ben and Jerry's that is the woe to dieters across the United States.

Description Inspiration:
Elbareth's description was inspired by Titania, from A Midsummer Night's Dream. She is based off of the Faerie Queen, nature, spring. Her colors are all fresh spring colors, faintly touched with faerie sparkle. She is a faerie, from her sparkling gold 'crown' to her almost transparent sparkly wings. We tried to fit in the contrast that you said you wanted, as well as hints of darkness in there. We also tried to make her simply as light and nimble as we could, while still making her as lovely as we could.

Mind Voice:
Elbareth has a very clear and precise mindvoice, middle alto in range, touched by a very faint upper English accent. She tends to speak in an almost rhythmic pattern, her words often touched with a faint amusement. Her mindscent is reminiscent of a light flowers, freesia, she is spring embodied, and will occasionally have a slightly earthy scent to her tone. She will fill your mind with colors, pale pinks and purples and yellows, sky blue, the pale spring green of new leaves, tan of bark regrown after a winter. All natural colors for this Queen of the Fae.

Physicalities:
Elbareth is on the small side, as greens go. She is exceptionally light and nimble, her flexibility is unsurpased among the weyr's dragons. In fact, you might find her scratching an occasionally itchy spot with her hind foot, cat like. She is not long, nor is she overly thin, Elbareth is a pleasantly curvy female, having just the right curves in just the right spots, her tail is long, tapering to an absolutely perfect point. Her limbs are shapely, being neither overly muscular or overly slender, perhaps a tad over long though, managing to look like a model on high, high heels when she walks. Her wings are very delicate looking, especially when she stretches them out and the sun shines through them, highlighting the faint color of them. They are not, overly delicate however, and when she gets her occasionally itchy spot, you will have to rub firmly upon it to relieve the itch. Her head is shaped into a delicate triangle, gold crossing her forehead to form a crown of sorts across it. Her features are r

Personality:

"And I do love thee: therefore, go with me;"

That is the key there, Elbareth is utterly and completely devoted to you. Perhaps moreso than the average dragon. If you wake up with a slight case of the sniffles, you might find that she's summoned half the healers on Pern to your weyr, convinced you were near death. If someone accidentally hurts your feelings, they should beware the wrath of her, her scathing looks and pointed mind comments, and even if you should make up, she will not so easily forgive the slight to her most beloved's feelings."If you will patiently dance in our round And see our moonlight revels, go with us"

Elbareth is a dragon that is most comfortable at night. You may find yourself being dragged out for a number of moonlight flights, as she enjoys stretching her wings in the cool night air and silver light of the moon. For her, flying is a way of dancing in the air, expressing her feelings, enjoying the breeze sliding over her body, occasionally doing the small bit of acrobatics. She is not a dainty green despite her delicate looks, she enjoys the fast and furious method of flying as much as any bronze.

"I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again:
Mine ear is much enamour'd of thy note;"

She is very much so in love with the sound of music, singing, instruments, it doesn't matter to Elbareth. She may attempt to make her own music, so if you hear an odd thumping of feet and crooning coming from her section of the weyr, that's likely what it is. You may find yourself encouraged to be a bit more musical, « Oh Tstar, won't you please hum louder? I do so enjoy that melody. » No matter how out of key you sing, or off tune you
play, Elbareth is as thrilled to hear your musical undertakings as she is to hear the most accomplished of harpers.

"Come, sit thee down upon this flowery bed,
While I thy amiable cheeks do coy,
And stick musk-roses in thy sleek smooth head,"

Elbareth will always be very eager for you to look your absolute best. She will encourage you to use the Pern equivalent of make-up, to style your hair nicely and adorn it with flowers when you aren't fighting thread or riding sweeps. She will constantly tell you how the other riders can't keep their eyes off of you, « Look at Misumith's rider, how he stares at you… » You may find that you have mental nudgings to get the scented
bath oils and to wear nicer clothes. Elbareth just wants you to look just as nice as she does, she will also insist that your bed have the softest furs and fluffiest pillows, the hangings on your weyr should be all well sewn and nice looking, only the absolute best for her rider.

Flights:
"The moon methinks looks with a watery eye;
And when she weeps, weeps every little flower,
Lamenting some enforced chastity."

Elbareth is not the kind of dragon that dislikes the males at any time, but when she's proddy, look out. You might even have to discourage her from flirting with male humans. She will slowly start to glow, you might notice it first under the moonlight as she takes on an extra little shimmer, that will slowly turn into an almost neon sign of proddyness. When she decides to take to the air in her flight, it will be fast and furious, from first blooding to the final finish. She will tend to favor browns and bronzes over blues during the flight, considering them the kings to her queen.
