Relationship Note on Ryhalt

I came home to find my betrothed face down in a pile of missives on his desk, ink spilled into his hair. As I helped wash the ink out I pondered how he came to Arx not covered in ink... He works non-stop, it seems, when I around to interrupt his daily routines..

I enjoyed the Igniseri family dinner, and was honored to have been invited by Lady Lucita. It has made me miss Thraxian family dinners, and my grandfather as it was during one that I last saw him. It might be time for another Thraxian gathering, they happen far and few.

It is with some annoyance and disappointment in myself that I realise that in working on the Gold Order of the Dragon I've neglected some of my smithwork. People have been understanding, thankfully, but that is no excuse. I have to do better. And really, I need someone more well-acquainted with bureaucracy and paperwork. I think I can find the room within the order budget to hire a steward to assist me.

Relationship Note on Viviana

I met Lady Viviana Pravus through Lady Joslyn Stonewood, and we decided that, given our love for Lady Joslyn, it was in our best interests to become friends. A few days back, I finally made good on that by inviting her to visit and enjoy a good home-cooked meal of the Oathlands variety.

We get along well. A natural flow exists between us and I found myself relaxing in her presence. We also seem to have at least somewhat a shared sense of humour.

Now someone explain to me how it is that I make friends with all these wicked Lycene women?

Relationship Note on Fortunato

The trick is to always word things -just so- so that you leave yourself some wiggle room. A good promise should have an easy out for both sides.

Have to stop making promises I can't keep. You do it to try to be better, never quite works, never quite works.

In many ways, what we encountered in the Gray Forest was not surprising. The Horned One's agents move there, tainting animals as well as men and women, though I think we still do not know the full extent of the strength he's gathered. All honors to my Count Thesarin, Dame Alexis, Master Merek, Lady Fiora, and Lady Isabetta for fighting by my side against those tainted creatures. Gloria gird us, for this shall not be the last time we face such things.

Relationship Note on Shard

Shard is an amazing woman. i would have many more scars on my body if it weren't for her... if I were breathing at all. But beyond her strength and skill in battle, she is wise. Her words to Countess Reigna here in the journals are an excellent example of that.

Perhaps one day, i will get to have more conversation with her than we've managed thus far.

Multiple entries of the same name accepted! Just...please...don't send 'Dame Thena Grayhope Lounge'.

Acolyte Pyotr will be accepting entries all evening, and I will draw one at random in the morning.

It's hard to build when one has nothing to build upon.

I hope she can manage it.

The unfortunate news has reached me that Kima Saik is dead.

A sorrow more pointed than the thousands of others I have witnessed.

Her training has seen me through the war, and the Siege.

May the Thirteenth guard her passing.

The King I speak of in the last entry is King Alaric IV, in case folk forget this sort of thing in the future, one never knows.

Also, I saw the King riding on a horse the other day, but I imagine the King rides his horse often enough that there's no need to write that down for Scholarly purposes. In case there are no more horses in years to come, such as happens to other ancient beasts, they are beasts with four legs and hooves, and folk of our time ride around on them. They are mostly brown, but there is also white and black and gray ones. They are also used to pull carts and wagons and things of the sort. They eat grass and hay and carrots. I myself can ride a horse, though not too well, but enough that I won't fall off a saddle, which is a sort of chair or stool one puts on a horse's back.

I hope this satisfies future Scholars.

Here I am again with a quill in my hand and a journal to write.

I went to a ceremony of sorts that was put together by Princess Valencia at her Hart. It had something to do with throwing away your regrets or the bad things that were weighing you down, and you would do that by bringing something to burn. The King was there and everything if you can believe it, though he did arrive late.

I took something to burn, and I meant to, but I didn't. My reasons are my own, but I will say I don't know if you can unravel the good from the bad. I've my burdens, but they're precious to me, or they would not mine to bear in the first place.

But it was an interesting ceremony and I am writing this so folk that write of our time in days to come know that the King went to this ceremony, as I am sure the Scholars will care more about what the King did and didn't do, than they will care for my troubles. And I understand that sometimes journals go missing for mysterious reasons of one sort or another, and perhaps no one else wrote this down and so I did. It's not every day I see the King, anyway.

Relationship Note on Torian

I live in the lowers. If I'm a silk, I'm the brokest one in the entire city.

Shame on me and Thena for having some fun in a world full of depressing bullshit.

Damn us straight to the Abyss.

Relationship Note on Shard

I thank you very much for your words. It is a rare thing for me to feel so utterly ignorant, but in this case I am, and your shared wisdom is most welcome.

My main concern for her is that she grows knowing that she is loved, and I agree, that I should always be honest with her. Love is does not stop with blood, and I will ensure that she never doubts that she has a place in my heart, no matter the circumstance of her birth.

Thank you, Goodwoman Shard.

Been awhile since I've written one of these things. Never really got the point of it. And then Khanne mentioned someone read somethin she wrote in one of these things. Who sorts through peoples journals? People in this city need hobbys.

Leave blank if this journal is not a relationship

Mark if this is a private, black journal entry
