Summary: The Thread alarms were sounding and all around them the wings were launching into the skies, the stench of fresh firestone acrid and bitter was in the air as ground crews mustered, flame throwers at the ready. For the first time the Weyrlings were mounted up in full Fall gear as B'lin and the WLMA face them "We are going to meet Fall but we will be on the lowest level, catching only stragglers and providing replenishment of firestone. If you are called up to one of the wings for firestone duty, look alive up there...you will catch a glimpse of what it is like to be in the thick of action." The weyrlingmaster warn sternly, "I want no heroics, no fooling around no breaking of wing discipline or you will be facing discipline from myself personally when you get back! " He took a deep breath as the last of the fighting wings took flight and he gave them clearance room and then mounted his own dragon. "Alright Dragonriders... lets Fight Thread!"
