Summary: "Hatching...something that has probably been in your thoughts a great deal." Tiella addressed the Candidates. "This particular session is about what actually happens on Hatching day, as you will need to move quickly and I will not have time to explain this then. So make sure you pay attention." She smiled "Right then, Hatching cannot be precisely predicted, it's dependent on a fair few things so our real first indication is when the dragons begin to hum. It is an unmistakable noise. It starts soft and by the time Hatching occurs the air itself seems to be alive with the noise, throbbing and beating.
