I thought it was just that I couldn't read A Civil Campaign when my high school best friend had dumped me to get married to someone who used to be my friend. It turns out that I can't even read A Civil Campaign when I haven't seen my (current) best friend in two months.

You can imagine how terribly thrilled this realization is making me.

It's been over a year since we got any quality time alone together.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
