Ellamariseth and Kilaueth have been settled on the sands together, thankfully without incident, for sevendays upon sevendays, watching their joint, yet distinctly separate clutches harden upon the red and white Sands of Xanadu. In time, all things had to come to an end.
Unfortunately, as peacefully as the golds brooded, the hatching proved to be anything but. One young blue protested from the start, and took it upon himself to ignore the candidates upon the sands, creeling loudly and badly bashing up his chest before managing to get up the stairs into the Sands to find young Damali. To make matters worse, in the blue's hurry to get to his chosen, he badly wounded a young man who had only recently been asked to join the candidate class. The Healers did all that they could, unfortunately the 20-something year old Raanan from Black Rock Hold had lost too much blood and did not survive.
Despite the incidents, there were 11 new, though somber, weyrling pairs who left the Sands.
