"I know I have been busy, but since when do you check out books?"


Archive Library

Where once books reigned supreme, this open space is now dominated by a stalwart skybroom reaching to the sky through a broken ceiling. What was once evidence of collapse is now ornately carved with engraved ivy, matched by a clever contraption of stone that allows the gap to be closed in inclement weather. A small garden occupies the space around the tree-trunk, all manicured bushes and flowering shrubbery enclosed by a grated gutter. The walls are lined with bookcases, while a spiral staircase leans on the western wall to wind upwards to the second level. Tucked in the corners and scattered in the main areas are tables and chairs, cafe-style, and comfortably worn overstuffed armchairs. It is the perfect place for individuals to gather, to enjoy the offerings of the food-cart or a spirited conversation.

Work, always work for the blue rider. This spring day young Th'res sits at his own table that has reports from the whole wing sorted and piled. He is going through and writing down items of importance and consolidating. Even in the heat he is drinking hot Klah, as he works his afternoon away.

There's a rumble from some of the stacks as F'kan steps out from between some shelves, his arms full with hides and journals as an archivist follows after him, occasioanlyl grabbing another volume and adding it to the pile. "Are you sure this is all you have?" the brownrider rumbles again as he looks down at the smaller man who nods affirmatively before scuttling off back to his very important duties. With that, F'kan will wander to a table near to where his wingsecond is working and unceremoniously dump his load on the table, garnering him several dirty looks, but it's obvious this brownrider doesn't often come into the Library.

Th'res glances over at the brown rider of his wing saying over his lifted mug of Klah "I know I have been busy, but since when do you check out books?" The blue rider says teasingly as he eyes what ever the material is that has F'kan so fascinated.

F'kan looks up and shoots a lopsided smile in the direction of his wingsecond, lazily tapping two fingers to his temple in some semblance of a salute as he starts to straighten out his pile of books and hides. "Hey this is serious research I'll have you know." once things are in order on the table, he'll settle into a chair and pick up what looks like a small journal that he will begin to flip through.

Th'res raises an eyebrow and sets his mug down before reaching over and snatching a book from the brown riders pile "Oh well then lets see it…" Because while he has work to do, F'kan with actual reading material and doing hide work is as rare as a stands impression. It does happen, but not often so it is always a sight to behold.

F'kan's reading material, Th'res will find, seems follow one very important central theme, observation on the habits of various wildling groups. There's also a scrap of hide nearby with a stylus on which some notes are already written. With a tilt of his head in the bluerider's direction, he asks, "Don't you have your own work to be doing?" but in a relatively jovial manner as he starts to thumb through the journal in his hands.

Th'res nods as he reaches over and picks up another report and duty roster comparing it to F'kan's own reading material shaking his head "You know I don't think it wise to go around stalking a wildling. She might put an arrow in you.." He hands the book back to the brown rider before saying "How is that going by the way, Jed tells me you have been doing a lot more face to face with the wildlings alot lately."

"Well with one wildling so far." F'kan confesses as he makes note of something he's just read down onto his scrap of hide. "Devana of the Erdou. There is no stalking involved and believe me, if she wanted to, she could have skewered me many times over by now." He says with a soft chuckle as he gets a softly faraway look, although distinctly different from when a rider speaks to his dragon, he's obviously thinking of something that brings a wamr smile to his lips.

Th'res settles his gaze onto the brown rider "I see, and how long has that been going on?" He is still taking his own notes and such but is now currently trying to read the brown riders face. "I ask because I really hope history isn't repeating it self, you have come to far to back slide into bad habits."

F'kan furrows his brows slightly as he tries to remember, "A few months now, I met her last autumn after the big storms. But I only asked her out during the winter after M'noq dropped the restrictions on me." At the blueriders last, he shakes his head vehemently, "This is not me backsliding. I like this girl Th'res. More than anyone I've ever met. She's just.." And it takes a moment while the brownrider searches for just the right word, but all he can come up with is, "Amazing." he says with the simple sigh of a man truly infatuated.

Th'res nods and goes back to his work giving a half smile "Well as long as you get your work done, and don't get me in trouble keep your self happy." He looks over more reports and says "so have you taken to living in a tent in the jungle?" he teases lightly.

F'kan shoots a little glance in the direction of his wingsecond as he shakes his head slowly, "I wouldn't get you into trouble." he says sincerly before he shakes his head at the other man's last. "Not regularly, I've only stayed over in hers a couple times yet. I'm still working up the nerve to ask her over to mine." F'kan says, sounding very much the lovesick pup as he continues to peruse his reading material. "What about you? Do you ever just let yourself relax Th'res?"

Th'res nods "It is hard asking someone over, also you should probably clean your place up." He leans back and sips his Klah again before shruging "I go sit in the underground pool before bed to relax the muscles. I go rock climbing and hunting and fishing to relax the mind." He glances over at the brown rider and raises an eyebrow questioningly "Or did you mean something else?"

F'kan raises a brow in the bluerider's direction, "My place is plenty clean, I'll have you know." Although the naughty tapestries on the walls might be a turns off, he considers briefly before turning to look back at his friend, "That's all things you do alone though…you'd be surprised at how much tension can be relieved with some company." And F'kan certainly looks way more relaxed than he has in Turns really, certainly since his second bout of weyrlinghood.

Th'res shrugs "I spar with people, or go sit at the Kitten and have a few drinks with the wing or folks." He turns his full attention to the brown rider "But I take it that isn't what you mean either is it?" The red headed rider leans forward to put his chin on his hand waiting for the brown rider to explain.
"You know full well I think you should take that cute greenrider from Ocelot up on her offer of a tumble." F'kan says bluntly as he turns his own attention to his friend. "But I know full well why you won't, and I won't bring it up again." well not too often at any rate, "I just hope you find whatever you're looking for one day." he adds with a shrug of his shoulders and a gentle shake of his head.

Th'res chuckles and shakes his head "Oh that all, and here I thought you were being creative about something." He shrugs adding "And her name is Alyna. And as far as tumbling with her goes, she has enough admirers to keep her busy and happy. I would rather just have her as a friend, if she ever decides she wants to come back around for more of my shine that is." He stretchs in his chair and grins at F'kan "so have you tried to take that wildling on a date yet?"

F'kan is not known for his creativity after all as he chuckles before sitting up a little straighter as a knowing smile spread to his lips, "I did take her on a date actually. This really fancy place at Southern Barrier called Le Brulee." the brownrider frowns as he slows to make sure he pronounces the place correctly. "Then she showed me the lights that dance in the sky there at night. It was obvious she had never been on a date before, but I made sure she enjoyed it while reamining respectful." he adds with a firm nod of his head.

Th'res nods approvingly "It is a nice place that, I might have to go and take a trip back up to the barrier soon as a get away." The red head can't help but chuckle at F'kan's addition of being respectful saying "I am sure if you were anything else but, you would be a few limbs short. Which is good seeing as we need everyone we can right now because fall seems to be getting heavier now that it is spring time."

F'kan grins at Th'res, "A getaway huh? You deserve it." He remarks softly before chuckling loudly at his next, "I wouldn't put it past her either, she's definitely a wild one is Devana." the heated smile that curls his lips hint that maybe she is wild in more ways than one, "Don't worry, my duty to our wing and the Weyr will always come before any pretty face.

F'kan grins at Th'res, "A getaway huh? You deserve it." He remarks softly before chuckling loudly at his next, "I wouldn't put it past her either, she's definitely a wild one is Devana." the heated smile that curls his lips hint that maybe she is wild in more ways than one, "Don't worry, my duty to our wing and the Weyr will always come before any pretty face." he remarks, although silently he marvels at how much more than a pretty face is Devana to him. With a soft clearing of his throat he bobs his head before picking up the book he was looking at before. "Better get back to it." he says with a sigh settling in for the long haul.

Th'res grins and nods as he moves to start packing up his own work "Well that is good, but don't forget to make time for her if you really care for her." As he packs up he looks over at the candles on the wall for the time "I got to get going, I need to check in on a friend, she changed jobs to Guard and her shift is going to start. Jed likes to make sure she is having fun and making friends." Rolling his eyes at his over friendly blue's antics "And if I don't reign him in he will be sit there and try to 'help' her." He walks over and puts a hand on F'kan's shoulder saying "Oh and in case you forgot, I am proud of you man. You have come a long way, and I can't wait to see how far you will go."
