Losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

Last night, the most wonderful thing happened. Well, to some it might have appeared very odd: the Wolf altar in the Shine of the Lost vanished, replaced by a black rose. I went to see it - the rose more than the missing shrine, but by then, some... hole had oppened up, or something, and a whole new temple had been discovered, with the missing altar now within it. There was a rose there too, along with a number of people and a nice woman who was surprised that I had found another. She said they belonged to her more than 'him' (and perhaps, I ought ask my sister about this terminology?), and so they shouldn't all be in there, but we agreed the one could stay, which pleased me. A lot of other people came to see the temple, including my sister, and the woman gave me another rose from inside her bag. Aislin was worried I'd try and grow them everywhere, which is astute of her, and the other woman encouraged it, saying that an ancient Queen had once done the same. With a story like that, Aislin was happy to give me permission to grow them. I don't think brother will mind. In any case, I have put the black rose in water and I am gathering a few things to properly accomodate the effort, as I shall be extra careful planting the cutting.

More kindnesses from unexpected places.
Is this what having friends is like?

A busy little day and I haven't written for awhile so I'll make it up now and the Vellichor brother can be extremely pleased with me.

It's been forever since I've been outside the walls of the city and today I'm going to spend at least half of it out on the plains and edge of the forests to hunt birds. I've three quivers full of arrows and those birds have it coming. There was a new? temple that appeared yesterday for the First Choice, but I haven't been there yet. I wonder if I can persuade Brother Aleksei that Peanut needs to take me. Peanut looks even more adorable with the gift I sent.

Bought a little gift for Princess Ann, her ankle is sprained and she's stuck inside. It should let her go places even if she can't walk. This is why wearing high boots is good, they help protect your ankle from twisting plus they look terrific.

Sent a thing over to the Dominus, I've been enjoying talking with him and he has a head full of good suggestions and ideas that he's happy to give if you ask very nicely. I think a present would be good to give him, but then what do you give a man like that? I'm thinking a stuffed hunting falcon with the talons outstretched but then having one talon hold something else would be even better.

Organizing a group for horse racing. I can't be the only one who likes to run my horses as fast as they can although others probably don't try things like jumping off said horse while it moves or seeing if I can jump on it when it moves past me. Note, I've had to get a new pair of leather pants as the last ones ripped.

I haven't done anything lately with Calista, Valencia or Deva. I'm scolding myself here to fix that as they've been pretty patient waiting for me. I'll organize a family dinner or lunch, lunch probably would be better since the spring sun will be up but then again night is always so nice too. What do you call something between lunch and dinner? Wine hour? Must seek out brother Branan and order that special wine, just in case.

I really miss my brother Luca. I'll send him a basket full of dead birds.

Relationship Note on Reese

I think I need this book for research purposes.

Also, well done for handling this with such grace. Too many would find it easy to take offense and lash out. I commend you.

Relationship Note on Driskell

The best thing about our scholarly tradition of journals is that decades from now, students of history will know precisely what a titanic ass certain individuals are.

I expect it will grant a great deal of comfort to our descendants to know that even in bygone ages, humanity never fails to disappoint.

Dear Compact,

The book Ribbons and Knives seems to be causing a lot of stir.

The book might not be about me and Mae, although there

does seem to be some points in common. It is certainly

best not assume and it is fiction. A fiction story even;

if it is based on upon us, it is not the truth of us. We are

far more complicated in the flesh. I am not upset about

the book. It is a book. Authors can write. I bare this

unknown author no will. He or she has nothing to

t fear from me. I even bought a copy of the book for

myself and one for Mae, although I expect her to be

to be blushing lots. That being said, I am an avid

collector of books. Luca can tell you all about my

collection and so can Branan. I bought a copy of

of everything he has ever written. I miss Gisela's

shop, but she had to follow her own path. I live in

hope of getting the rest of her metallic hero books

one day and the one about beasts and the one about

herbs. One day!

Princess Reese

With the destruction of Thrall's Lament, I have full confidence that the leadership of Thrax will see to it that their thralls have new homes, businesses and other needs taken care of. Of course, that cost might increase each thrall's debt too which is reasonable. Nothing comes free in life.

Relationship Note on Harald

You have my eternal respect for understanding the decisions that had to be made in that moment. And my deepest regret for assuming the worst with that same decision. I was grateful to any God listening to see you rise from the rubble like a man possessed with an unstoppable force of will to keep fighting.

The siege was the first time I have been in a fight, a battle, of such a scale. And in the days that have followed I have had to process my participation in the brutal uncaring nature of it. The weight of choices in the heat of combat that I witnessed others and myself have to make for our own preservation or for those fighting side by side has revealed to me. There is no room for honor in that morass of mutual murder. Only survival.

But I will still try to convince myself otherwise.

I hear tell that Princess Knight-Officer Serafine wants me to bite her! I would be happy to oblige except for two key problems: Fraternization in the ranks, and I'm too afraid of her woman!

I pray for the forgiveness of my enemies.
I pray the Gods spare them for their trespass.
I pray that the dead stop haunting me.
I pray my reflection stop judging me.
Why do I pray, when the Gods clearly have forsaken me?

A deed done in the dark always comes to light. The seekers of truth will find what they seek. It was once said, the truth shall set you free....or in this case condemn you. May the restless spirits of the dead never whisper too loudly, lest those who can hear them undo us all.

I find that to write salacious or lewd material about people who are unaware of being written about... is in poor taste. And this is to put it in very polite terms.

While knowledge and history are sacred, and I value the place satire has in the political realm, and I cannot deny the elegance of good erotica, I cannot necessarily agree that wish-fulfillment and smut that features characters that are clearly supposed to be people of note, holds any such honored distinction.

Please do not peddle flesh fantasy, when it is not with the knowledge and consent of those who it is written about.

Darkness presses all around
snuffing out the light that once was.

Darkness enveloping and entrapping
I may never be the same...
Lost without a light.

Turbulence of Trust, Friendships fade
Darkness entwines and suffocates.
