Relationship Note on Muiryn

One day, when I seek you out and begin a conversation with, "I was hoping you would-" you are going to put me flat to my back with that maul of yours before I can get the rest of the damned words out of my mouth.

But until that day comes, I'll keep asking.

Searching for the unknown comes with a certain responsibility to accept what is found, whether it is what you hoped for, or what you feared most. Before setting out on a hunt, it should be asked whether you're seeking truth or confirmation, whether you can live with the answers whatever they are.

Relationship Note on Eleyna

It's like having a very persistent, very attractive, very tempting suitor. Only much prettier.

The meaning and even the 'language' of flowers can be a matter of extensive discussion among women of either a certain calibre of breeding or a certain wistfulness of aspiration. Yet I find myself conducting serious research into the qualities, aesthetic properties, and symbolism of plants. Mostly of either flowering or aromatic kind (and ideally of both). Yet all as an exercise in pursuing hope, or in providing means for others to do so in future. I hope that the fruits of my studies will in some small way prove worthy of the sacrifices that have made them possible.

Relationship Note on Caelis

I am very proud of my cousin Caelis and the way she has embraced life in Arx so thoroughly. She has always been a a strong and steadfast woman. I am glad my brother has gifted her the opportunity to not only represent our house in her good works and exemplary behavior, but now to be a Voice for us and speak with that authority. I hope she knows that she has my full support in this as well. We have always stood together and now we speak together as well.

In addition to being named Voice she was also promoted to the position of Admiral. I prefer to do the fighting on land, all things considered. I am glad to have her as Admiral to take care of all the military work done at sea. As she likes to say so frequently, I know she will lead our forces to safe harbors.

I look forward to all the strength and leadership she will show in these new roles.

Greedy Wolf, glutting himself too hastily on his catch of hare, found himself with a bone turned cross-wise in his throat. He hacked and coughed, but could not bring the bone up from his throat.

He went and found Crane, certain that with her long neck and slender bill, she could reach the bone. Wolf told Crane, "I will give you a reward, if only you will pull this bone out for me."

Crane was hesitant. There was no comfort to be found in putting her head down Wolf's throat. But she was a helpful in her nature, so she did as she was asked to do.

The moment Wolf felt the bone release, Wolf backed away and started to prowl off. Crane looked after him and called, "You said there would be a reward!"

Wolf sneered back, "Haven't you got it? I let you take your head from my jaws without snapping it off."

I may have the luck to meet the shaman more often...

Promotions do not make social events more bearable. On the bright side, this time I actually danced. I shall count that as progress. Next time I might dance AND strike up conversations, won't that be daring? Perhaps I ought to stick to training rings and tournaments.

May your hopes find safe harbors.

Fun watching the stray at play... See him chase the birds, kill the pets, and terrorize the kitchens... I think I will have to keep this one.

New armor! A new sword! It's been a surprisingly good last two weeks for me.

Even working at the Murder and volunteering at soup kitchens seems fun now that I'm not at risk of dying.

Nothing can kill my cheery mood.

Relationship Note on Seva

Kids now days do not get it. If the boat is rocking don't come knocking. Don't stay outside knocking, asking whats going on and why the door is locked. THE DOOR IS LOCKED BECAUSE ITS LOCKED!

Uncle Dominic is behaving so strangely!

He sent me a message saying, "Don't come into the apartment for a hour or two. Your uncle is serving Thrax."

It was so late! He was lucky that I had a spare cot in the shop. What nonsense military business could he be doing that I couldn't hear?

The event at the Hart was quite fun! It might benefit me to go out more often.

It can get boring inside the shop. Or far too busy. So many people have filtered through to buy bandages or request help after the siege.

It was nice to sit and drink in pleasant company and not need to be worrying. Besides, I got to show off my handiwork with masks.

Changes to the thralls matter little to me: their lives spent is an empty page in an endless book. Perhaps the survivors will look ahead with more joy.

I won't.

Relationship Note on Ysbail

She is energetic, upbeat, positive, and an altogether happy person. Normally this sort of person is the one that annoys me the most because it feels so disingenuous and more often than not annoying. This one however presents it all in such a way that it seems quite genuine and controlled. I approve of it. She has agreed to aid me in the busting of entities beyond my understanding.

I suspect I should introduce Samantha to her. They'll probably get along marvelously. Though maybe too marvelously. Perhaps I should save myself the headache and not.

The Dominus and I discussed the role of the Lodge. It was pleasing, really, to be taken seriously, to discuss and consider how best I might assist the city and the Faith together. No firm conclusion was reached, though the question of my swearing to the Faith was raised again. I don't know, as yet, if I should; yes, several nobles seem to manage quite well serving both house and church; but their duties are distinctly different.

Hana and I rode to the Saiklands to visit my family. Da's leg is still giving him trouble; I showed him again how to use the feverdew infusion on his dressings to bring the worst out - and we found some old family relics, though nothing as worrying as I'd hoped. It was good to see how everyone was; that they've weathered the storm.

Sometimes, it's good to see things do not change.
