Relationship Note on Freja

Met an interesting princess at the Training Grounds. A scout - and a very capable one, if what I hear is correct. We talked about coming to noble status late in life, and we have tentative plans to perhaps go out on a mission at some point. It would be nice to pick up more tips about wilderness scouting; while I feel capable I know I don't have the fifteen years I had as an Iron Guard.

Met with his Grace this week in passing at the Training Grounds. He was leaving and pointed with a grunt at my tabard - indicating I should leave the sell swords. I believe him and cousin Tobias are in quite the war currently, and who knows how that is going to affect family dinners. Still, I would like to get to know my uncle some more, since my father has since passed on.

Things seem to be seeing down, slowly.
Though they are still confusing.

And I don't think I've been told before that I should get married... At least never as many times like the last days...

The Count made me his Voice. Scratch off one thing from the 'will probably never happen' list.

We'll see how this goes.

I have a headache and it's not a consequence of imbibing alcohol.

Maybe some Lycene Morning would still help...

The Festival of Commons, for the peers of the realm to play at a life without their great burdens and for the common people to forget those to whom they are sworn. A delightful thing, yet it has me longing for a true masquerade. How long since we all played at masks? Much too long.

Relationship Note on Lark

I had no idea that the princess was a connoisseur of treehouses. The things you learn...

Relationship Note on Donella

    Hers is not a shadow that drowns and obscures; it is one that has risen tall to blanket me, protect me in its cloak. When I see her tiring from all of the weight upon her, I feel my love grow fierce in my chest, but I never doubt. There is no one person I admire more than my sister.

Relationship Note on Margot

    It was an awkward embrace, but I felt it; there was a sisterly compassion shared, there. It's a nightmare, what's happened to our families, how that's come to shape the entireity of our persons, both of us. Despite so much darkness in Arvum, in Arx, our home, I have never felt so unified and strong with my beloved people.

Relationship Note on Darren

    It was the first I'd met him, and I struggled worse than usual with keeping the dialogue appropriate for our stations. But the jests kept spilling from my lips, and he was good of nature. One might say he asked for it. Someone I wouldn't mind trading quips with, and while he insisted it wasn't a misuse of his time, I can't imagine he doesn't have a thousand actually important things to tend to. I am not, in the least, envious.

Eagle is a proud bird. None would dispute Eagle's prowess at the hunt, how high it might soar, or how beautiful it shone under the sun. Eagle did not attend its weaknesses. It did not like to think that it could not see all from its vantage so high in the sky; that there might be things hidden from it, that it could be taken for fool, seemed impossible.

Eagle took the world for what it saw the world to be. When Deer and Bear and Rat warned of the sly Hunter, Eagle scoffed. Eagle was to clever to be taken by the Hunter, bound to the ground. Eagle underestimated the Hunter. Eagle did not think anything of a trade with the wayward traveler that wanted only a few of the fine feathers for a trade of fish; an easy meal for what seemed such a small trade.

Some days later, Eagle was riding the warm winds of the cliffs when it heard the whistle of an arrow from the shadows. It struck Eagle through the chest, and Eagle fell to the craigy ledges. As its life bled out across the stone, it looked to the arrow, and found it fletched with its own feathers.

How do I like my tea?

Hot. Hot and strong. And-

Relationship Note on Mirari

It may not be altogether big news for many people, but last night I became a patron, for the first time. A step above getting a puppy, but certainly not on the level of infant, either.

I jest. Sort of.

I'm proud to patron Mirari Whisper. She's a remarkable woman.

My first conversation with a Mirrormask, it seems she is intelligent, charming and altogether persuasive when it comes to sharing her beliefs with others. I am also fairly convinced that makes her all the more dangerous but that does not mean I cannot agree with Princess Isolde on a great many things which do not touch upon religion. This is definitely something to speak to Cassandra about.

It is unpardonable conceit not to laugh at your own jokes. Joking is undignified; that is why it is so good for one's soul. Do not fancy you can be a detached wit and avoid being a buffoon; you cannot. If you are the Court Jester you must be the Court Fool. But oh, how oft the jester proves to be brother to the sage.

What happened to Ansel? I do not speak about this in a negative light, but I do not remember him being an utter master of the blade, he brought down Lady Eirlys without her landing a single real blow and with immense speed, while she is definitely one of the best swordswomen I have had the misfortune to find opposite me in a sparring ring.

Relationship Note on Calypso

A woman with a fine head on her shoulders. A fine tactician, an interesting (if sometimes blunt) conversationalist, and, far more importantly? She has the makings of a fine Minister of Defense. She is decisive when she needs to be, listens to other's advice when the time for discussion is here, and does not waste time on idle pleasantries when there is work to be done. I look forward to working more with her in the future.

Sometimes the world baffles me and I want to crawl into my nice quiet warm little cot with a bottle of fine brandy and barricade the door to my room so I don't have to deal with all this fucking weirdness.

But I know better.

I have men and women to train; men and women who will soon see engagements for the first time in their lives. How can I prepare them for this? Body and soul and mind? How can I tell them to be strong and be brave and how to face the horrors that come with true war?

I can't. But I can prepare myself for broken bodies and shattered minds.

Relationship Note on Audric

He's my Cap'n, boss man, seems like a clever sort... I really need to eventually cook this man some food before he wonders where my stipend is going every week, that being said... I also probably need to make some fire water for him too, I wonder if he's ever drank blood wine before?
