What color of dragon do you think you'll Impress and why? I think I will bond to a Green dragon I am a girl that means Green or Gold and I do not want the responsibility of running a Weyr and all the duties and stress that a Weyrwoman has nor do I wish to scrub that much hide Golds are BIG.
Choose a rank of Weyr inhabitant and describe three things about that rank (e.g., drudge, brownrider, etc.).Weyr Harper. A weyr Harper's duties include but are not limited to, teaching the youngsters their ballads and teaching songs, recording the important and not so important news and goings on of the Weyr, and entertainment whenever called upon from singing after dinner to gathers and feasts of all occasions.
As a Candidate and as a weyrling, how would you address a person of this rank? By their rank fallowed by their name when appropriate or Sir or Mam when it is called for.
Describe one historical responsibility of either the Holds/Halls to the Weyrs, or the Weyrs to the Holds/Halls. If this responsibility has changed since Thread was eradicated, explain how. The holds and crafts are responsible for tithing to the weyr to provide their food and supplies while they protect them it changes a little now that thread has stopped falling as many of the weyrs are supporting themselves and only need help from the holds and crafts.
Name one thing, besides Impression, that will likely happen during the Hatching and what you should do if it does.A dragonet may be injured. If the dragonet has already bonded let the bonded handle it if it has not bonded yet let the adult riders deal with it if it is your bonded get help fast!
Name one thing you should do if you or a Candidate standing next to you Impresses.If I impress I should quickly say my dragon's name aloud letting everyone know I impressed and start leading my dragon out of the grounds to get food and a bath before sleeping
Briefly describe one of the lessons the Weyrlingmaster outlined during your Candidacy. Do not let your dragon over eat if it does it can cause all sorts of problems not just with your dragon but with the whole weyr as all the dragons share your dragons indgestion.

So I move." Well move less so I can finish your oiling and get your harness on or we are never going to get to fly. Rain stopped moving so quickly and completely it looked like some one stopped time it was so funny that Alex fell over laughing so hard she was crying. Snorting with exasperation Rain stared down at her rider. " If you do not get up this instant mine I will give you such a wild first flight that you will puke in front of every one!" You would not dare to do that in front of all the weyrlings and H'lee rain so I can laugh on the ground at your silliness all I want!
