I have written two Pern stories which are posted on the NKT.

Mirrim's Vigil
News from the Weyr

Both describe scenes which are hinted at in Dragonsong but not actually shown. "Mirrim's Vigil" is based on something Mirrim says to Menolly when she asks what happened at the hatching. "I didn't dare go myself." What was she doing all that time?
I just wrote "News from the Weyr" which describes Harper Elgion returning to Half-Circle Seahold with the news that Menolly is alive.

Please let me know what you think!

I really do like "News from the Weyr." You do a good job humanizing Menolly's parents without getting unrealistically soppy about it.

just what you'd expect Yanus to say!

I'd love to know what happened to Elgion- I guess harpers weren't par-tic-u-lary popular in the seahold after that!

Even when he was furious about Menolly, Yanus was able to remain reasonably civil with Elgion; he's too important to just dismiss.

I've posted the first part of a new story here - it's a Pern story, but this one is not connected to any of Anne's stories - at least not directly. Let me know what you think!

I wanted it to be subtle at first - that's why I used so much material from the books - adding one line ("If anything can be done, they will do it") and later using that to push Jaxom into leaving - just one little extra line to convince him - and then Menolly is alone in the Hatching Ground and at my mercy!!!

Well, they're all in the Exhibit Hall now, so you don't really need these links... But I have resurrected this thread to make this announcement:

Ghost in the Tunnels is FINISHED!!! I finally sat down and got her to a place where I think it'll be safe to leave her (unless she keeps exploring those tunnels, of course )


While I'm posting, here are the links to the other stories I have in the Exhibit Hall!


Mirrim's Vigil
News From the Weyr
Dragonsong: An Alternate Tune
Ghost in the Tunnels
Pern Poems
