Lessa woke, cold
The denial doesn't last for very long. Kieren's an artist, and artists have been doing stupid fucking things forever.

After forty years of Threadfall, the end of the Pass is almost within sight. Benden Weyr flies at full strength, the Holds it protects are growing more numerous and prosperous with every passing year, and everyone knows that the coming Interval will offer the best possible chance to reverse Pern's technological and social declines...and, perhaps, to see the planet rid of Thread for good. But who will be first to seize the chances on offer? And, what will they make of them?
Torene of Benden is well aware of her responsibilities as a Weyrwoman, and of how far beyond her own, autonomous Weyr they extend. Dragonriders risk everything in Pern's defence, and it would be unconscionable to see their years of sacrifice wasted, even if that means setting personal friendships aside in the service of a greater good. But when disaster threatens everything she holds most dear, Torene finds herself forced to hold the tide at bay alone...
With so much at stake, how much can one woman save?
