Relationship Note on Tristram

The nicest man I've ever tried to throw through a door. The only one who gave consent first.

I do believe that I am approaching the point that I may start giving flying lessons.

I have to say, Thrax knows how to throw a party. Also, I have mixed feelings about rum, which may be muddled by the amount which I consumed.

It is strange. I wake up in the morning and smile so much, and then when I walk into my shop, I hum. This is a silly thing, it is more like I am happy. This is strange and yet enlightening. Everything is calm and I am caught up in the mailstrum that is my life, yet I can smile through it all and sing. The day has not gone to the night yet in sometime, but as long as I wear my necklace and think ahead, at least as much as I can, it will all be all right. I have to hope this. I went to a gathering the other day and sat there for a while people watching. I admit I drank too much rum, but I had a pretty good time overall. As for the rest of my life, nothing of that much importance has happened, except for the fact of me having this overwhelming need to be happy. I enjoy such things. Clothing has been a steady business. I wonder if I'll ever hear from my Mother and Father? I miss them.

Finally made it to Arx. Not too excited to be surrounded by buildings again, but I suppose we have to do what we have to do. Someone had apparently let Silas know I was coming, so that's nice, but I need to get ahold of him.

Found out that something happened to Horatio as well. They've put up a big statue to him in the gardens here. Didn't know the kid well, but I'm pretty sure he didn't deserve this. I'll have to figure out what went down there.

Relationship Note on Leta

Very nice sellsword who taught me how not to lose every fight I get into. Now I only lose most of them!

That was a joke, scholar.

Stop trying to take my pen.

I see that many journals are used as a forum for social commentary, or to vaguely talk about problems that those involved will understand but then leave everyone else in the dark.

I will not do that.

A.) Because I don't care enough to do so.
B.) No one is really that interested in the inner workings of my mind. Perhaps a select few.

So with that in mind. I will turn my pen towards a different journal. My white journal will now be comprised of Erotic fiction.

Now that's what I call entertainment.

Lunch over fish, asparagus, olive oil, and romance. Wishin' you two love-mollusks well on the long mountain climb you have ahead of you. Best of luck! May the gods be on your side!

Well, that didn't last at all. I turned over the Lord Commander's sword for several reasons, but events being what they are, I have accepted the promotion to First Captain. Which means that if Lord Commander Rymarr does something incredibly heroic and pays the price, then this whole cycle starts over again with an unexpected promotion. Nonetheless, the reasons to turn over the sword are swiftly being resolved, and so while I am content to be First Captain, I suspect that if I am ever again the Lord Commander, it will remain the title with which I eventually die.

Speaking of something incredibly heroic, I'm not sure I approve of this plan of his. It's heroic, to be sure. And it might have several different benefits, but it is also quite the gamble. I had no idea he was such a gamester. I will, however, support his choice whatever it is. Not just because he's the Lord Commander, but because I do understand the occasional need to make difficult choices that are hardly understood by observers.

In other news, my work continues unabated. I am close to a breakthrough I think - I hope? But the uncomfortable matter of the Thrax succession and its rippling effect through Arx is another difficult point. That's a matter I'm keeping a close eye on, even if it is mostly because I am concerned for my family, despite my current status.

'May you live in interesting times' is a curse for a reason.

Relationship Note on Michael

Michael my good friend!

You and your politeness are surely the envy of many. Oh how upright you walk, and your hair is very straight, my good friend.

Though I question your taste in some arenas, may the gods bless you with good fortune and ...well, good fortune is enough, don't be greedy.

Let us have a party again soon.

Relationship Note on Valery

Friendly, always carried about her little pals. Hangs out an awful lot at the Training Center for someone who has no interest in fighting herself. Hope she gains what she is after from the experience.

I survived my first night back in the city, Unfortunately though it seems my hope for a few more days of being dead have been fucked. So much for enjoying the city for a few days without the worries of family and dealing with the harsh realities that come with it.. 8 years was long enough to be dead though.

Most didn't even realize who I was, which was good. Though Victus the clever bastard that he is did. I should have known better than to have gotten through the evening free of anyone finding out I returned. But we had a good talk, and should be having another more serious one soon.

Beyond that the evening was one of much drink, a bit of smoke and a touch of the hunt.. Oh that delicious and lovely hunt. But that is for another time another writing.

Visited the Shrine again today to collect my thoughts and reflect on my purpose here in Arx. I want to serve my family, I'm troubled by the news I've heard and the things that have been happening. I always wanted some grand fairytale adventure, and it seems I may get one, all Arx will.
Mangata shelter these people with your groves and strength, guide us on your waves, and heal our spirit for surely darker days are coming before the peace breaks. Let us weather the tempest and shelter the landsmen as you love and care for your sailors.

May your hopes find safe harbors.

Attended the Masque tonight. It is not the sort of engagement I have grown accustomed to. Clearly I have neglected my duties as a lady for those of a sailor if I'm much more at easy bandying words over drinks in a tavern than in an evening peopled with my peers and betters. I will try to do better and balance the two. Again Audric came up. His name seems to follow like a plague. Still, I think I managed to meet a few people I expect I shall see again-or I hope I do. Time in this menagerie of people will tell.

Great dancer, and even better company.

I look forward to seeing more and talking with the Marquessa at length.

It's good to know that my Oathlands schooling didn't entirely go to waste.

I can dance like no body's business. Take that stereotypes.

I suspect if one were to look at a prime candidate for the possible positive evolution of a culture, he would be an excellent example to cite.

He also dances very well.

Relationship Note on Caelis

It's been years, but I still stand by one of the things I said when I first met you: You aren't getting me on a boat. Even if you have a lot more of them now.
