Well, the melee happened. I was one of the first to go down, but only because five of my competitors saw fit to target me at once.

Really, I should take it as a compliment.

Relationship Note on Talen

The Sword is being disingenuous. I never said I expected him to restrain the predatory nature of his pet, only that he not contrive to -help- the creature kill my fox. There is a difference.

Relationship Note on Talen

A good man to bump into and shove into a fight, and a great wall to relieve tension against. Doesn't say stupid things like 'you're a woman' or 'you're not as well armored' or 'your dick is too small'.

Have to appreciate that.

Relationship Note on Eos

Had a very interesting walk atop the SeaWatch walls. The view is as incredible as always. But to have company and able to listen to a story touching upon the Golden Guard and their Lord, made it even better. At this rate, I may even conquer this fear of heights.

Relationship Note on Branan

A poet. A poet that now lives within the estate. So long as he's not bunking with me I'll find a way to make do. If he recites poetry over breakfast I might not be so amicable.

Apparently I'm not allowed to let Hiss kill her fox. Since when did I shoulder the burden of telling natural predators what they can and can't do? Pray for me, scholars. This is one task I think I cannot accomplish.

Relationship Note on Serafine

Quick but not quick enough. She has a habit of taking me on despite the "unfairness" of combat. It's a trait I can admire. There's nothing fair about fighting to the death so why should there be when training for it?

It's quite amazing how fun a trip to the Managerie can be. Especially if Sophie is along, as she is quite relaxing company.

The ursine exhibit, and the lemurs, were especially amusing. But they really need food vendors in there somewhere.

I think I need to speak to the Archlector and Archscholar. Aside from anything else, the latest proclamation of the Dominus would make the timing fortuitous.

I've had in mind for some time to create an order devoted to Petrichor. The city relies on hunters for their meat, and none of the nobility I've shared meals with have given him any thanks, nor have they thanked for hospitality on entering another's lands. I understand that to them, food simply occurs; but the love of hunting is one of Petrichor's gifts, and we must foster it. I had it in mind to create a lodge closer to the forests, of skilled hunters and riders. That such would be of use on the roads, as well, or as scouts for war, should only make it more useful in gathering support. I must, though, find those who would willingly join such an endeavour, not only for themselves, but to honor he who gave us dominion.

On an unrelated note, it seems Blanciber is getting better and better at making my family's scotch. They just sent three crates of the newest 12 year old batch.

I haven't had a chance to crack one open yet, but I'm thinking of passing some bottles around as gifts. Everyone loves scotch. Especially mine.

Relationship Note on Deva

I've known this particular Redrain for longer than any other in this mad city. Of course, -clearly- she's my sister, rather than the woman that looks more like me. But, royal foibles aside, I've gotten to know her more during the chaos of our lives lately, and I find her... so utterly different from me in every way, and I love her for it. One day, we'll find that middle place where we share common ground, outside of our love for her brother, and... well, it would sound wretchedly sappy to say I will call her sister in truth, she's definitely someone I will count within my inner circle of friends.

Sapphire. Stealthed in plain sight. Don't forget.

Relationship Note on Niamh

Niamh Greenmarch, the Sword of Greenmarch. She is cut from the same cloth as her cousin Princess Marian and she is a stark reminder that despite all our differences with the prodigal house, we are alike in the ways that matter. She seems possessed of a sincere desire to leave the world a better place than it was when she found it. I believe she can, and I hope she continues to remind us that the differences we wear on our sleeves mean nothing in the light of the honor we hold in our hearts.

Relationship Note on Leona

Lord Commander Leona has a great burden to bear. When I saw her again recently she was pleasant and friendly but I could see that it weighs on her. I understand how that feels. My uncle cast a long shadow and his loss feels as if it is impossible to fill. But my uncle was more than just the greatest knight of his age. He was also one of the wisest. He believed in her to succeed him, and because of this, so do I.

Few knew the Legate of Concepts. As is common among the higher echelons of our Faith, most of her time was devoted to serving the institution of the Church in ways that were invisible to much of the laity, but which were vital to the continuance of all the good that the Faith does across the Compact. When a Knight of the Silver Order walked with the cold and lonely on pilgrimage, the Legate was there. When vows were spoken under Limerance's eyes, the Legate was there. When the destitute but innocent found a voice through my own priesthood, the Legate was there. The Shield of the Faith showed the devotion and service expected of her station, and her loss will impact us all, both on a spiritual and practical level. Fewer still even knew of her retinue, Holy Templars who served her faithfully and bravely to the end. They had names, these men and women, and stories, and pure hearts. We do not just mourn one person, but many.

While some may begrudge the Faith for indulging in a time of mourning and contemplation, I recognize that this is because they are too deeply mired in their own concerns to realize that even the servants of the gods can grieve.

It is my hope that during this dark time, the Faithful will forgive the time that we selfishly spend in prayer, in memorial, in the notification of friends and loved ones, and in the solemn contemplation of the future. May the gods watch over us all.

Relationship Note on Fawkuhl

This is bullshit and we all know it. How rich does the Faith of the Pantheon need to get and whose pockets are they going to rip the coin from?

Because I guarantee you, it isn't the other rich pricks that are going to feel it. No, they'll pay their tithes and get married as they want, but they're not going to splurge on that extra for an aeterna gown or commission a painting for the betrothal or do all of that other nonsense that allows us crafters to put food on the table.

Whose backs do you really want to profit off of, while putting more and more gold on your robes, eh?

The Faith is officially banned from shopping at my place, at least, until this ridiculousness is lifted.

All good things must come to an end, I suppose. I didn't realize how much I wanted this to after all.
