Default Elrhan Master Archivist of Pern

While on a visit to the Harper Hall, I happened to meet a hansome Master Arcivist named Elrhan, who was very kind to me while I visiting. He was also very happy to agree to sit for me while I did him and his firelizard Sarynth's portraits.


I hope that you all recognize Hans.

*whoopee*


*free after some author called Anne McCaffrey...*

[rpgmode]
"It is beautiful, tell Journeywoman Maelin. And a perfect rendition. How considerate MAelin is. How overwhelmed I am by this and every other compliment given to me in this forum. It is ... magnificent. That's the only word for it. I'm speechless. Rendered completely speechless. Never in my wildest flights of fancy did I expect such a beautiful portrait, such beauty, such thoughtfulness, such skill."
"If you're speechless, Elrhan, spare us your eloquence," came a dry voice. All turned to see Master Archivist Sariel standing in the open main door.
Everyone laughed, and Master Sariel was beckoned forward and given a cup of wine...
[/rpfmode]

Oh, that scene seems familiar to you?

Seriously, I thanked Maelin already but will do so again in public here. Thank you Lady Maelin, you're not only a wonderful and talented artist, you're also a wonderful friend!

I'm so proud, I immediately changed my avatar!

I did surprise you then , I am so happy that you like this so much, as that was my aim in doing it for you.

Yes the scene does sound wonderfully familiar, and lovely to be included into the story, even if only for a moment.

You also already know, that it was more than my pleasure to do this for you after all the help, and friendship you have given to me.

Bertrand, I have never seen anywhere in the books that they are mentioned. If they were on Pern, I think that poor ole Wansor would have been using them. It seems a little more Pernish, to leave them off, as these are our Pern persona's not real life, it looks a little more authentic to go without. Thank you for bringing this up though.

Truly wonderful, Maelin!
And yes, I recognize the scene... That speechless speech begs one to ask if the speaker would have gone on even more if not speechless!

Tresa - I was wondering the same thing!!!
Great speech to use, Hans! (or rather, since this was him being speechless, is that a non-speech?)

What a wonderful picture! No doubt many of us will be inventing Pern chars just to have an alter ego's image as our avatar. By the time you've done the ones on the waiting list, I'll undoubtedly have come up with something.
