Peregrine Grayson was my friend.

Daring, vibrant, and fierce--

I have tried to write a poem in eulogy. Fierce rhymes with pierce, daring rhymes with caring, vibrant rhymes with celebrant--

Sort of--

I don't have a poem for this. Peregrine's song is in the song of the birds -- the forlorn cry of the gull, the sweet trill of the mockingbird, the harsh caw of the crow, yes, but especially the falcon. Huntress, mighty and fierce and quick, with blood in its talons when it strikes clean and sure. Hunting bird, you faced prey too large for you, but you were the greatest of great hearts.

I will always treasure the confidence you offered me. I will wish for the open breadth of your perspective much in days to come, I think. But I hope the gods reunite you with your lost family, my friend.

Heron to falcon ... I will do my utmost to take down what slew you. We are, after all, both hunting birds.

The faithful came together today and got down into the soil to plant trees. We gave thanks to Petrichor for the land and to Death for new beginnings.

I am reborn in the service of my goddess and of the Faith, and the world is reborn from the ashes of a war, a threat on its existence, in new life.

I give thanks, also, to Death, the Mother of Beginnings, for the two lovely children who were born to Princess Cara Grayson in the Rebirth Grove. I can think of no more auspicious omen for new lives than to begin in such a way, surrounded by hope, and love, and faith, while we scattered blessed water across the roots of these newly planted young trees.

Gods bless you all. It's a beautiful day today.

Ran the gauntlet this morning with Marian. Whoever thought up that fresh hell has a sadist's mindset. I enjoyed it.

Did better than I thought I did, I guess. Marian told me I had set the new record by a single point. Can't say that was my goal in mind when I ran through it, felt like I barely made it to the end. Sucking wind like I was wet behind the ears. Shit, I'm out of shape.

But, the record stays in Redrain.

My father's arrival has been delayed by an incident at the Stormarch, but he will be pleasantly surprised when he arrives, I think. We're well on our way to being established and getting ground broken on our house in the city!

Relationship Note on Erika

You're here!! I'm so glad you came down and I know it was a sacrifice to pull you from the woods, but I am truly happy to have you here cousin. I know we can make great things happen, and I'm sure we can still sneak out for the occasional hunt!

So much of my family is here in the city now that there are almost always the sounds of life within the manor, regardless of hour. Twice this week I have heard laughter from the gardens only to look out the window to see the pools actually being used. It's a nice change.

I am not sure what or who killed Princess Peregrine, but I plan to find out.

Princess Peregrine was a warrior princess and who brought a good force it her and helped us to hold Seawatch gate at the battle. She also killed a bringer in that battle.

She was not with us long, but her presence was helped and she helped us to keep Compact. She will be remembered.

He doesn't piss me off very much. He's got booze and games. Decent.

Relationship Note on Alexis

Full of annoying optimism and youthful exuberance, you will no doubt be a shining example of Oathlander chivalry and serve your house well. I also expect you to read each and everyone of those books. There will be a quiz.

I made a friend! Apparently writing journals is a thing you do in the city. I think I will give it a try now that I am here. I would like to maintain if I do open a shop I have the perfect name for it since a friend seems convinced it will be such a hit. Granted, Aodhan's Remorse isn't the most welcoming title for an apothecary's shop.

Relationship Note on Ysbail

I am proud to see Ysbail's hard work and determination pay off. She made a plan, executed it well, and brought the Blackwoods into the fold of the Compact without issue. She is a shining example of what you can do when you put your mind to it and I'm happy to welcome Ysbail and her family to Arx.

As I grow nearer and nearer to a year of penance, I feel myself thinking even more about it than I did when it first started. Its an interesting journey to be on, and its certainly made me think about things in a way I never have before.

Ugh, summer in Arx. I forgot how much I loathe this weather. I could go for a nice ice bath, or a few feet of snow right now.

I'm a part-time recruit in the Knights of Solace now, after a sit-down with the Grandmaster and a quick word to Lord Commander Boss. Now, this don't mean I'm looking to become a knight.

Naw, it jus' means that I'm lookin' to more to help the city.

Anyone that says otherwise is itchin' for a fight.

Relationship Note on Serafine

I am sure Meowlarice is a cat. I am sure of it, because her mother was a cat as well and that is how it's passed down by my reckoning. As long as they stay in the yard I don't mind a lot of cats.

We always had at least one cat and sometimes more at home, and my nan and then my mom always fed some cats from the street, as they help with such things as mice and rats, which I hear there's a lot of these days. I hear they'll keep the elves away too, and from what I hear that's more often a good thing than not.

I've spent a great deal of time these past few weeks doing research in the archives. It's not something I'd have thought I would be doing a year ago. Truthfully, I tend to feel like it's a fruitless effort. I've never been one to favor giving up, so continue I shall.

Relationship Note on Peregrine

An unfortunate end. I did not know her well, but what I did know of her is that she was fierce and strong. It's my hope that she forced whomever slew her and those she was with to be able to do so only after exacting a hefty toll.
