Relationship Note on Armel

Faith is not an easy thing, and sometimes not a pretty one. The virtues demand much from men and women, and meeting them requires sacrifice in mind, body, and heart. Grandmaster Armel is not an easy man, but he is a good and godly one, and one I'm proud to know. He has helped me in many of my darker hours, and I pray we can confront the evils in this world together as warriors and friends.

I am so exhausted. I am almost completely about the ability to sew another stitch. I think a need a nap.

There is is much that I want to create, but my finger hurt from so much sewing and I might need to stop for a few days or else find some help around the shop.

I simply had the most lovely conversation today over wine and nibbles with Princess Jaenelle Velenosa (formerly) of Thrax. Following that discussion, I took time to truly think about what she had said about meeting new people: a stranger is someone that you haven't met yet. I do not think that I am doing her words justice with my paraphrasing - but the point remains. She is so right.

I thought about you, my most darling friend, when she said that. The one that keeps me smiling the most --

I hope to see you soon.

Hugs and Kisses.

My pearlescent peacock costume won best mask at the masquerade ball. I wasn't actually at the ball. I don't normally go those things, but I am flattered that my costume won and I think my work is getting better and better.

Relationship Note on Arthur

Its hard to believe that after all these years we finally lured you away from Southport and in to the city of Arx. I remember the first set of armor you ever made for me. It was a momentous occasion for me, my first set of commander's leathers. The hawk etched in to the back was so skillfully done, and the fit was perfect. When I went to the master leatherworker to thank him for his fine work, he almost accepted the praise. Almost. But when he revealed that the work was yours, I knew you were going to be special. We've grown together, parallel on sour separate paths in life. Just as I dedicate my all to my job and family, you are dedicated to your craft. I am honored to be your patron and I hope you will join us on campaigns to come. Your skill is unparalleled.

Relationship Note on Caelis

I have always thought fondly of my Cousin Caelis. My ally growing up, even if she is younger than I am. But distance grows two people apart some times. She was off with the Navy and I was called to Arx, putting a great distance between us. I can honestly say that now that our paths have once again aligned I am delighted to have her in my life. She is kind but firm, a more sensible approach to our families tendency towards martial discipline. And I cherish her for it.

I am not likely to say the following, so, I thought that I might write it down for you: forgiven.

Relationship Note on Niamh

I've been buried under paperwork and my own personal drama - draaaaaama. Be sure you draw that out, scribe...

Apparently Niamh died? How the fuck did that happen? How the fuck did I miss that?

We weren't close but we worked well together on those occasions fate threw us side by side. My condolences to the family that misses a sister, daughter, cousin... those who miss a friend and partner, and those who miss a sister-in-arms. May Gloria smile on her deeds, Lagoma renew her soul, and the Queen of Endings restore her when the time is proper.

Relationship Note on Katarina

I preened the requisite amount for that lovely compliment. THANK YOU, Princess. Yes, we certainly must. Although, goodness, I'll need to be brought up to current day on the Compact gossp!

Relationship Note on Lydia

Come now, Duchess Lydia. There is none more fairer and resplendent than you, dearest rose golden lady of the North. I wasn't aware that you'd returned from the North! But now that I know you're safely tucked away in the walls of Arx once again, I'll be coming to collect on that promise of a shared gossip over glass of whisky.

WAIT.

Wait a moment, Scholar -- and, goodness, I do apologize for that very grotesque noise of displeasure I made. At least I didn't kick your shin. At least there's that. Oh, I will need to be making a charitable donation to the Vellichorian Shrine for that. Perhaps the scholars. Yes, I plan on it.

WELL. There are all these hushed little mentions of a party at the Pravus Manor? And there was no invitation extended toward me? For shame. Have I slipped so far down the social ranks that I'm not desired company at a social gathering? Honestly, I MUST correct that as soon as I can. My ego is as delicate as my constitution. Like tissue paper, alas, torn at the slightest provocation.

Terrible showing, Lydia, you need to get OUT there.

I will, oh yes. I will.

Relationship Note on Calypso

She's closer to Lord Artorius in age, but more and more I find it easier to speak to Lady Calypso than my cousins closer in age. She works so very hard for the Compact and gives so much of herself for others. I hope I manage to lead as an admiral with the grace and intelligence she's shown as a general in battles past.

Relationship Note on Artorius

We lost our parents when I was still so young and I lost him to his wandering and his family once he settled down. Still, so often my dear brother has had to wear the role of father as well for me and I am forever grateful that he is here to nag about my footwork and give me a shoulder when I should need it.

Relationship Note on Katarina

Such a warm spirit to her. Every time I've seen her she has always been so full of life and joy. Princess Katarina is truly a gift to Arvum. Needless to say, I deeply enjoyed the party she gave, and getting to see so many ladies and princesses enjoying themselves and laughing in that infectiously joyful energy.

The party in the walled gardens of the Pravus Mansion was a brilliant success. It went far better than I could've ever dreamed of. I just hope all my guests enjoyed themselves as much as I did.


Even falling headfirst into a trunk was fun.

Another exciting day at the Menagerie. One more little place of sanctuary made within. A nice place to sit in the butterfly gardens. I would say thank you to the person who donated, but seeing as this person donated for someone else, I wouldn't wish to ruin the surprise. You know who you are. Thank you for your contributions and such a little place will be well tended for many years to come.

I have had a few other offers as well to take on small projects.

My hope is to have a soft opening soon. I worry that some of the designers have the architects pushing back the date of the opening. I would like to see it open before winter hits...

Days go by so quickly.
