Wings Beneath Benden
Caizo and Naelo are carefree fisherboys living early in the Ninth Pass aboard a distance cargo ship run by a seacraft captain, only months away from walking the plank for their journeyman knots... but Caizo has gone and gotten the Bayhead Hold Holder's niece pregnant. When Benden Weyr rides on search, Caizo hatches a brilliant and daring plan. Set during Dragondrums. This is the hatching where F'lessan stands.
- Part 1 of Wings Beneath Benden
Set in the Ninth Pass about a turn after the hatching in Dragondrums where Felessan Impresses Golanth and Mirrim Impresses Path. The most unruly of the Oldtimers have been dispatched south while the rest are integrating with the new ways of living in the north.
Things aren't going well in S'lel's wing at Benden Weyr. A greenrider spends a great many more marks than he ought and nobody knows where he's getting them; S'lel himself has fallen out of favor with F'lar and Lessa but he's desperate to regain some standing; and a bronze-riding wingsecond with a troubled past has just transferred in from High Reaches.
