Relationship Note on Teague

The axe is valid.

Stayed on my feet for way longer than expected -- which means I'm _improving._

Hopefully, the lesson sticks around longer than the bruises from that sparring match.

What a curious friend I have made. I did not expect I would enjoy your company so much.

I don't know if my new quill friend is real -- or rumor. Either way. An excellent tale-teller.

Today's tea was a lovely ginger one, with honeyed fruit. Delicate, delicious and nicely piping hot on a cool autumn evening. It was made more delicious by virtue of drinking it in good company. Marquis Fairen stopped by to discuss a few things of interest, including research projects, children, and fashion.

My pets do not like my new jewelry. I think it is magnificent! Well done!

I am enjoying my time in the city so far. People seem to like my work and I can barely keep my shop stocked. This is by no means a complaint! I am loving every moment. To see the eyes light up with joy among my patrons is reward enough. But I have also made a tidy profit.

I continue to meet many interesting people. I never know who is going to walk through the door of my shop next. I think this is my favorite part of owning a shop. All the different people that I meet. I am thinking of setting up a place in the garden out back for socializing. It will take some work to make it presentable, however. Too many weeds, and it is overgrown. The little fountain no longer works. I have kept the doors to it closed for now. Perhaps once I finish this project, I will focus my attentiin there.

Currently I am working on a thing for Count Duarte Amadeo's event to honor someone named Joscelin, who I understand was Guild Master of the Crafter's Guild, of which I am now a part. My people have a tradition of honoring the deeds of those long passed as well. I did not know this Joscelin. But I will try to honor her memory as others do.

I hope to hear stories about her, and see some of her work. I look forward to it.

I really should be getting back to work. I have a splendid gown to make.

My birthday wish this year is that everyone can find a little time to themselves. A few quiet moments to breathe and appreciate he beauty in the world before they have to face whatever is coming.

I need to seriously reconsider a few of my life choices, Scholar Einar, I do. I could stand to learn a little more self-composure, a little more patience. Or--

Or I could replace them with life choices that are much more fun. Like, say, making the choice to start to collect a weapon made of each specialty metal the Compact has to offer.

See, fun? Fun AND practical.

Autumn is here and with it the snap of cold and change in the air. I love this season, though again this year much is on mind. But for all that, I am grateful to feel a change.

My Hart is hard at work with the help of Prince Patrizio, Wolfscout Rowenova and Archlector Vayne to help us be ready to help our realm and people better prepare for what is to come.

I'm proud to work with them. All formidable and excellent people with experience and skills I respect and wish I had. I am inspired and very grateful they would wish to join our efforts.

I am also resigned to learn at their side. We all fight evil in our own way. And if I may see our people become stronger and rise to what must be done to win these fights we face across the realm, than I am only to happy to.

I have such faith and hope in our people. Especially when we are able to work together.

Relationship Note on Alessia

Ever does my wife's cousin prove a source of pride not only for herself, but also for her House and people. She is a person of many gloves, many hats, and many cloaks. She came into this world part of a pair, but at this point she has risen exceptionally high to claim the coveted favorite title.

We, her family, are immensely proud of her many accomplishments and are ever eager to be astonished by those that will inevitably follow. Most recently she has given us yet another lesson in our centuries old history; vainglory and ambition can be wonderful things in the right hands, but those who become consumed by their thirst for personal greatness often forget it is the family - the House - which was always there, always waiting. It is the mark of a truly impressive individual who remembers that while their personal glories are of great importance, their thirst for acclaim is intricately bound to the very foundations of their House as well. No one is greater than their House and the House is of no great importance without its exceptional people.

We are in this together and she, my dear cousin-in-law, has shown once again that she is part of that dream. May her future endeavors prove as fruitful, just as stunning, equally astonishing, and always bring glory and honor to her and her House. I look forward to celebrating her achievement - and future achievements - as readily as my own.

She's awe inspiring.

I am, increasingly, finding that there are days where I decidedly know so much of what is afoot in this world - and specifically with regards to the dark clouds approaching our shore - and just enough of the finer details that I wonder how those who came before us made it through the storms that've assailed us.

There are reasons that I travel these days with a chest of liquor in my command tent. I must imagine those who've had my title before did quite the same.

Oh a new messenger, from Princess Cerys none the less. I hope she finds me agreeable, as once more I am in need of silver, in order to work more...and eat. I heard eating was important. Not sure where. Perhaps they were having a jest with that one.

It is far too hot to work. I am also out of melon juice. And wine. And bread...and cheese.

Oh and silver. Need that first to to get the others.

But it is too hot to work, so no silver....

Relationship Note on Eirene

Lady Eirene was kind enough to credit me with suggesting we bring home the pretty little luminous fish discovered upon a recent trip we enjoyed together.

While I can say the thought to collect samples of the fascinating things we discovered along the way for further study was indeed mine among others, the idea to take some of the delightful creatures home as a personal treasure was that of Dame Felicia.

I thought it was a lovely way to remember the journey, but I must admit my role in this was simply to see that the fish collected were given a comfortable home for them to enjoy before distributing them among our party.

They are indeed wonderous and beautiful things to see. I had no idea how lovely fish could be.
