Question Firelizard rising to mate

If your queen firelizard rises to mate and a wild bronze catches her, how do you react?? You're journeying to a Hold!

I don't think this would bother anyone. the Queen is not going to go with the Bronze back to the wild, They are impressed. The wild bronze may or may not hang around the queen, wherever she goes.

You misunderstood what I was trying to say!! Did you read Dragon Drums?? When Sebell and Menolly were at sea when his queen rose to mate and one of Menolly's bronzes caught the queen? What would happen if your firelizard rises to mate and there's no one near????

I think the attraction was there already whatever the firelizards did. They were just the excuse for more immediate action than might have been planned.

I believe I understand what you are asking. I think that such a person would get a bit aroused and it would be up to their personal standards if they wanted to ... provide some self relief ... or not.

Your post was very vague, no info on any traveling companions. Just how a person would react to a wild bronze mating your queen. the person could have been Alone. I don't believe there was ever mention of the reactions of people during firelizard mating flights, Other than people already in a emotional relationship.

Had to look this one up myself.

Sebell and Menolly, with Sebell's gold Kimi and Menolly's Beauty, Rocky and Diver, were sailing from Fort Seahold to Southern Hold, when Kimi started acting proddy. Menolly realised Kimi was about to mate and sent Beauty to Southern so she wouldn't interfere with the mating flight. (Sebell hadn't a clue what was going on.) Diver won the mating flight. Rocky flew off to join Beauty, or may have found himself a willing green --- Menolly didn't know which, having been involved with Sebell at the time.

But the question was, what do you do if your gold takes off with a strange bronze leaving you by yourself on your way to a hold. I'd say, definitely don't go rushing to the hold looking for a partner. Holders are easily shocked. Maybe a bath in a cold stream would help.
