Re: Golds prefer holder girls?

They definitely search for greenriders in D'Eye. I didn't mean they searched for female greenriders in later Passes, just that it would be interesting to see that.

Re: Golds prefer holder girls?

Yes, they bring girls to the Weyr, but we haven't seen girls being Searched to be green riders yet. That'd be intriguing.

Also, Palla, Weyrwoman of Telgar in the 9th Pass, is craftbred or, at least, served as an apprentice to Wansor.

Re: Age of Majority?

According to Cheryl's site, Jaxom was confirmed as LH in 2523. Per Hans's site, he was born in 2505. Therefore, the age for LH confirmation seems to be 18.

Re: How can Mirrim be a weyr leader?

I guess Monaco Bay has a queens' wing. The Benden QW helps out here, but "queens' wings" are mentioned, so probably Monaco Bay helped out, too.

Re: (Potential Adult Topic) Dragons Sexual Selection

The Weyrs naturally are very sexually liberated because the atmosphere, with green dragons flying all the time and different preferences of sexuality, is more sexually charged than Holds and Crafts.

Yup. It was K'lon, rider of blue Rogeth, and A'murry, his weyrmate, rider of green Granth, at Igen. Leri notices that K'lon has a tan and is very weary and deduces that he has been timing it to Igen.
