Blue Memorable Moments - Dragonsinger: Harper of Pern

What are your memorable moments from Dragonsinger: Harper of Pern? (Again, this is a completely personal and subjective thing, but fun too.)

Mine are:

Mennolly's "vision" of F'nor and Canth's jump to the Red Star.
Robinton's and Sebell's eggs hatching.
Mennolly and Piemur's brawl at the Gather.

No takers?

Wow!

Does this mean we have found an unmemorable Pern book then?

I not only have a very favorite scene but I am working on it as we are talking, I hope to have it finished in a few more days. It is of Menoly when she is tricked into playing one of Domicks long pieces of music, with Sebel, Talmor, and Domick. Where they find out how qucik and talented she is, and she is overwhelmed by the music. The emotion that is in that scene if wondrerful, and deaply felt I think by the reader. This is the fullfilment of her dreams to play and feel music all around her. Everytime I read that book that part just sticks in my mind and I see it clearly.

Similar to Dragonsong, I remember way too many individual scenes to decide which to take the time to type out!

Like DF, there are so many I can't really choose a fave. But the most remembered were Menolly and Piemur's Gather brawl, When Menolly and her firelizards are making up Brekke's Lament(I think) and Sebell gets it all down and Menolly doesn't even know he's there. I dunno why, but I remember that most vividly. Oh and when the girls in Dunca's Cot run around screaming like headless wherries because they're scared of Menolly's fair. I love that.

I'm with Maelin, she described one of the best loved scenes.

Especially when she says something like: that was great, can we do it again?

I also like how the belt-seller gives Menolly the flit belt for free.

Hans,
Menolly was so beautifully naive, she just enjoyed everything music. Her wonder of it all I found completely captivating.

The spontaneous performance of "Moreta's Ride" during threadfall, with the fire lizards' dirge... dancing at the gather and playing her songs to an appreciative audience for the first time... the wrenching revelation to Piemur and Sebell of why she was so afraid to shine... Her friendship with Piemur... writing "Brekke's Lament" and looking up to find Sebell transcribing it!

I find this book frustrating. And I think it's because Menolly is so frustrated through most of the book. All the masters she had to work with should have been advised of her physical difficulties and it sounds like a couple of them weren't or they chose to ignore them. But then it really didn't matter in the end since the other masters agreed to make her a journeyman.

I love it when she is removed from Dunca's 'tender mercies' and given a room down the hall from Robinton. Where she wants the worst furnishings so she isn't accused of anything by the other apprentices. Tho she does take 2 cots so her fair can bed down with her comfortably. Their comfort must be considered before hers.
