Preparing for war is not the same as warmongering. Perhaps I may need to properly educate people on this fact, if anything to calm any concerns they may have.

Relationship Note on Malcolm

I think we can maybe send you a pot or three of nice strong Westrock coffee, my Lord Duke. Though I am not convinced it will help you very much.

What? Of course I sent it, Scholar. I wouldn't be so mean as to mention it and not send it.

Relationship Note on Acantha

Went to the Clearlake Winter Festival to see what they do for such...

I participated in all the games - archery: of which I have no skill and managed to NOT shoot off my own foot, or anyone else's; riddles: which I won, but was the only participant; and brawn: which has inspired me to use for training my own troops!

Thank you very much to Lady Acantha and Clearlake for setting this up!

Much fun!

I had the most lovely conversation today with Mistress Sorina Bianchi - tailor, Steward and Lady-in-Waiting to the Countess Consort of House Corvini, she is a delight to speak with. She created the most beautiful gown for me of seasilk, black velvet and lily embroidery. I cannot wait to wear it for our upcoming party at the Acheron Domain. I look forward to finally coming out of mourning, and into the light of Arx society. Marquessa Rhea has also appointed me Acheron's Master of Trade, and I look forward to all of the exciting prospects ahead for the success of Aviaron's Peak.

I am excited to see what other beautiful creations Mistress Bianchi has in store. Gowns in violet, green and red. Vibrant colors, which suit me much better than tragic black. I shall always feel a glimmer of sorrow in the depths of my heart for those things which have been lost, but I feel that it is perhaps time for me now to move forward.

A journey is in my future, to the north -- where a part of my heart and soul are perpetual residents, no matter where my body, so it will be good to feel whole again.

Arx is lovely but cannot compare in its man-honed beauty to the crystalline mountain air and expanse of sky found in the northlands. I am lit up within by excitement and also warmth, so touched at being asked to go along in such esteemed company. My quill and ink are at the ready.

Relationship Note on Acantha

You're two for two on events, and this time was smoother than the first. No unfortunate misunderstandings. Whether it's a knack for such things or hard work, it has brought new faces by to see the party.

I still don't believe you actually needed the help, however, as much as you wanted a break while someone else did the work of running ones of the games.

The Clearlake Festival was just what my spirit needed. It was good to see so many warm faces. And I don't think I made too much a full of myself. I was able to wear the dress I asked Petal to make for me. And Melody's tips on presentation I think helped. The food was delicious, the cocoa just right, and the entertainment and company grand.

I took part in the archery competition, of course. It was wonderful. Lieutenant Carmen Harol won and I couldn't be happier. She actually split my arrow in two with one of her shots. A well deserved win if ever I saw one. I'm rather proud of her. We've been working hard on her skills with a bow and boy has her dedication shown.

We had to leave a little earlier because Tala stuffed herself full of sweets and drank three cups of cocoa in quick succession. I warned her about this before. But I told her if she really wanted to eat only sweets, just this once. I don't think she'll do that again.

I want to do something involving The Liberators, but I really don't have any good ideas. If anyone wants to write to me with any good ideas, go right ahead. I'm looking for anything that would increase it's membership, donations, or encourage people to seek them out for advice.

Relationship Note on Morrighan

All right, I'll say this: maybe not all redheads are known for their (tempers) freckles - but at least one (her) is also known for drinking a Crownlands Duke under the table and back up again. Although, is that any surprise? No.

... my head, gods.

I need coffee. Please, someone. Send coffee.

How does one know for certain if they are having a genuine existential crisis, or if they are just very emotional from the first months of pregnancy?

It seems very genuine.

Went to the Clearlake Winter Festival today. I think Violet put just the right amount of whiskey in my cocoa. It was very warming, and I can still walk home! Well done.

Unfortunately, not everyone can say that.

Relationship Note on Rinel

My poor misunderstood protege is such a tough case that there's even been difficulty procuring the services of Whisper House to take up her cause.

No, Rinel, it is not good. Stop smiling. I will have Orathy carry you to those propriety lesson if I must!

I am aged and past my prime, the zenith of my beauty has come and gone and I am but a wilted flower.

Or so someone says.

I wonder what they would say if they knew. Or if they would say such things to my face.

I'm smiling right now as I write this.
