|"Bubble! Bubble come back here with that thread! BUBBLE!" Ignoring…|

"The Nexus," says a tall blond in red turtleneck and blue pants as the tiny cream coloured... fire lizard? in her arms chirps commandingly at the big guy in the air. "Gateway between realities."
"A Nexus? Gateway between realities?" The girl scrunches up her face as she tries to comprehend this. There are other realities? Does that mean other worlds or actual other universes? There is the void the dragons and firelizards enter when they jump between
but that can't really be counted as another 'reality'.. right? Bubble glances down at the tiny lizard calling to him and chitters an inquiry. Why should he come down?
"Yes. Anyone from anywhere and any time can come here, including other versions of you yourself." She starts and looks down as the little creature in her arms starts an angry tirade. "Chichi! Stop that."
"But... I am the only me!" Zeprai protests, nearly unsettling the two infant lizards on her shoulder. She hurriedly reassures them with gentle pats, letting them huddle around her fingers until they quiet again. Bubble hovers in midair for a moment and listens to Chichi's tirade with questionable attention before waggling his tail at her and flitting off again. Damn stubborn lizard!
"Chichi, no. Please, stay with me." The blond hurriedly scritches the little cream lizard's chin and sighs with relief as the scolding turns toward her instead and is accompanied by diligent hand washing with a little lizard tongue. "Thank you."
Then she looks back to Zeprai. "I'm sorry. I didn't hear what you said."
"I said that I am the only me." The young weaver huffs indignantly, not in the best of moods at the moment. First her oldest firelizard gets it in his head to steal the spool of thread that she needed the second she needed it
, then got the infant blues riled up which led to her chasing all three into this very confusing new place. She feels that she is perfectly entitled to being just a little annoyed right now.
Oriana tilts her head, her brows lifting slightly as she wonders how best to react to this. Asking about the girl's reaction might anger her, but pointing out the size of the Multiverse while she's already annoyed surely will.
She looks down at Chichi, then blinks as a solution comes to her.
"My name is Oriana Pax, and this is Chichi. That's Bubble up there?"
Resigning herself a bit to her current fate the girl sighs and nods. The woman has an odd name but it doesn't sound too different than some of the ones she is used to back home.
"I'm Zeprai. The troublemaker up there is the infamous Bubble, and these two sweetlings are Squeak and Cheep."
"My mother has a blue lizard," says Oriana, smiling. "He's strong-willed as well." Then she blinks and looks down as Chichi decides to stick her head into her sleeve. "I'm... not going to ask."
"I only hope that the little ones don't try to mimic the thief up there. If he knows what is good for him he'll come down and give me my thread, lest he have to catch his own food and sleep with the whers!" Empty threats of course. As much as Bubble tries her patience Zeprai loves him just the same.
Oriana looks up as Chichi starts to scold again, so used to the loving but noisy tirade that she barely registers it anymore. "Maybe he needs a girlfriend."
"You might have struck something there. He is finally showing interest in mating flights but so far as been beaten out by my experienced males." She muses while casting a glance Bubble's way. He isn't quite ignoring Chichi but he doesn't seem keen to come down and return the stolen goods either.
"Cureall's blue, Baby Ratchet, has changed some of his behaviors since Chichi came to live with them, I'm told." Oriana resumes scritching the little lizard's chin, then blinks and looks back to Zeprai. "How many of them have you got?"
"Just the three. Bubble is the oldest at nearly three Turns old. I bought his egg with hard earned marks I had saved up and some that I borrowed from friends at a Gather. Squeak and Cheep came to me when one of the greens in the Weyr clutched. They've only hatched recently." She replies with a warm smile.
((quick ooc question. Was that 'more experienced males?'))
