This is the one about connecting through the digital disconnect. Her name is Lovie. Short for Lovelace. She has not answered to Adalaide Grace in so longshe cannot remember when it last was. Anyone who thinks Lovie is supposed to be an endearment is in for a surprise.
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?
