Relationship Note on Torian

I just don't like mushrooms, man. I never have, even when I was in the Tragedy. I'd rather have gone hungry than eaten that awful mushroom soup they made. I want to free people from the belief that these squishy bastards have any redeeming qualities.

Relationship Note on Thorley

I find myself in a wholey unexpected world I never thought I would be apart of. Nor even strived for. All I have ever done is strive to do my best, make those I work for look the best with the skills I bring. Yesterday my husband, Thorley, and I went to a feast to celebrate Harthall's new barony. Thorley is sword, so it was no surprise to get an invite. There are no hint or tell what was to happen and I dare say that the Farshaw's and Harthall's managed to blindside us both. Ironic, then, that our house name is Farwatch.

Despite being blindsided by this turn of events, I welcome the challenge they bring. I will support my husband and help him in building up this reclaimed land given to him. I am proud, too, that he managed to not curse too much when they sprung the news on us. I am glad that he has been recognized for all he has done. For my own part I know he will shine. Even if we may stumble a bit on the way. Someone said building up a House is like a child. So far I'm doing okay with that. Luckily I have a partner I can trust and who trusts me.

I wonder what my parents who say? I know they would be proud, of course, but I rather imagine my dad rolling his eyes and saying, "Don't trip over your fancy dresses now." I'll try not to Papa. I'll try not to.

Relationship Note on Violet

Speaking of people's lives who I've made much more difficult recently, I must include you as well.

Then again, considering your career and successes speaks for itself, I'll consider it a sweeping win in snatching you away from the North.

Relationship Note on Thorley

For what Orvyn and I have done today, I hope in a decade you will not loathe me for it. It was no easy task to go through with the decision, and there is some selfishness in why I did what I did. For different reasons. I admit that and may the gods forgive me for it.

At the same time, I wanted a man who I knew I could rely on. Who I knew Orvyn will be able to rely on. I know your shoulders are heavy with the burdens you have already carried. And I know I have not made that any better by handing you even *more* responsibility.

You are the strongest man I know, cousin.

Not at all. I'm not known for taking half-measures, Shard!

Relationship Note on Thorley

And then it was done. Such planning, and yet it all fell into place so easily that one must thank the gods for their guidance and hand upon it all. It is a pleasure to welcome a new Baron, the Lord Thorley Farwatch to the peerage.

Relationship Note on Violet

It is with a wonderful welcome, do I see that the Crimson Blades have accepted the offer to have a Chapter house placed upon Harthall lands. It will be good to have someone close by, through the expensive of the right sort of coin, will be able to help protect us in the coming days.

Last Will and Testament of Dame M. Valardin:

I ask that Inquisitor Faye Ruger be the executor of my wishes; if she is unable to do so, then I name High Inquisitor Alistair Velenosa to serve in her place.

* My set of diamondplate armor, as well as my sword (Light in the Dark), should be held in trust by the Inquisition and given to an Inquisitor they deem worthy of such things.

* All other armor and weaponry should be given to members of the Inquisition.

* My couch and chairs -- which, I am told, are very uncomfortable to sit in -- should be given to my sister, Zara, so she can remember what a pain in the ass I have been.

* Any money that I have in the bank should be donated to a charity of the executor's choosing.

* Additionally, any remaining assets should be dispersed as they see fit.

My black journals should remain sealed.

Relationship Note on Draven

Alchemist Draven Bruvir and I wrote out and merrily signed marriage promises!

Thus, I am now the Scout Rowenova Bruvir!

We put on wedding rings right away, but -- if we ardently make it through this Lodge business -- there will still hopefully be the promise(d) ceremony as per his white journal (check it out!) as well as eventual children (not too soon)!
We first kissed around this same time during July 1009 AR (which has been a whole half year ago)! The strong bond we time tested is absolutely incredible, and thank you to all those who have been so good to us and Sir Floppington!

I met a gods damned GIANT tonight, and he let me touch his weapon. (Oh, laugh it up.) Seeing as I was stood up for drinks otherwise, I made out like a queen.

Regret is something I don't often feel. Usually I just let things roll off my back. But with Bashira dying, I feel a lot of regret. I regret not spending more time with her, I regret leaving her when I went off to become a hired blade. I regret letting her move to Arx. She died valiently, but that is cold comfort to not having her here anymore.

Relationship Note on Delilah

You are spoken of with kind words in many parts of the city, Lady Delilah Whitehawk. And they are even true, so of course some know of you.

I'm back in Arx for a few hours, so I'm stealing a few minutes just to record a few thoughts. So much is happening at the Lodge now. Everything is building and I know soon our time will come when we face some of what we are hearing about in the reports. I can't say that I'm ready. Not sure I ever will be, but I'll do my best.

I do know that I'm ready to spend time with my family again, more than a few quick hours here and there. I just hope we don't lose many more people in this. That's been the hardest thing to deal with so far in the reports coming in, I gotta admit.

I think I'll go spend some time at some of the shrines while I'm back, too.

My heartfelt congratulations to Baron and Baroness Farwatch, a recognition most apt and a couple most deserving.

I hate it when I wait until Journal Day to get all my writings in. I should know better, this happens every week, and yet it's becoming more and more of a bad habit. I'll have to figure out a way to address it, as well as this lethargy that seems to have taken me. I blame the chill of winter - for all the time I spent among Northerners last year, I simply cannot understand why people so thrill in a time of year that makes you ache.

But that is perhaps secondary to my real concern right now: This city has become a study in monochrome. I know that umbra and aeterna are fantastic fabrics and you can do so many things with them, and I have so many ideas still for outfits to design, but the lack of color has become depressing. I want violets and carmines and emeralds, gilded brocade on azure, embroidery and light. Aeterna and umbra can be accents as well if we really want them, but I feel we are losing the true beauty of color in the world. I know I have contributed to this, but I'm going to get some life back very soon here.

Why are we, as a race, so afraid of our own emotions?
