Re: Favourite Weyr/What Weyr would you live in?

I'll take Ista. I like a warmer climate and living close to the ocean. That's what I've become used to in real life. I enjoy visiting locations where it snows but I don't know if I could endure long...

Re: Which character are you most like?

At the risk of sounding redundant, I'm also going to go with Menolly, replacing music with writing. There are days when I'd like to do nothing more than write but real life too often gets in the way!

Re: Accomodating Non-humans

Thanks, Weyrlady! :blush: That story was actually published a few years ago in a print magazine. If you like, I could PM the story to you. It's one of my shorter ones, only around 1,000 words.
