As my little tribute to Mercier, and to the people of DiamondTalk who knew and cared for him, I'm giving away 2 pearl necklaces that Mercier himself hand-strung. These are leftover from my stock when we tried the pearl venture. One white strand, and one black strand.


The first contest question will be based on one of my favorite things, sci-fi/fantasy books. The question will be vague, as this isn't meant to be super easy. But there will be enough information in the questions that you should be able to pull up the right answer on a search engine. The contests will run until the correct answers are given. Anyone from DT is welcome to play.




For the white strand...

#1: What was Jaxom's dragon's name, and what was the dragon's color?




For the black strand...

#2: What is the only male creature on earth to give birth?

The correct answer is: The seahorse

It turned out to be easier than I thought.

We have a winner for the white strand.

Sixcatstoo guessed the correct answer, which was...
Ruth, the White Dragon.

I'm going to run one more contest for a Pink Strand that will be a bit harder tomorrow.

Yup, Ruth is a dragon. All the dragon names in the Pern series end with TH. Ruth was an anomaly amongst the dragons. He wasn't meant to be born, but Jaxom wouldn't let him die and jumped down in the hatching sand arena to break open his shell and free him. The two became bonded, much to the dismay of everyone, because Jaxom was suppose to have been a Lord Holder, not a Dragonrider. I believe he went on to do both. Ruth is the only white dragon ever to be born on Pern (and per the author's wishes, will remain the only one).

Thanks everyone and congrats to Sixcatstoo! I just happened to be in the right spot at the right time. I feel very honored, as I now will have something special made by him. My first and only Mercier piece. I can't thank you enough Cass.
