I tested out my rubicund blade on poor Lord Pietro with great success, then recommended he get one himself from Mistress Hana's shop. Now it appears there is a military discount my fellow guardsmen can take advantage of.

I'm tempted to refine it further, but I'm not -quite- rolling in the silver and I have a fairly large woodworking project coming up. It will be a fun, though.

Alas, I've done a bad thing. It seems someone is rankled - not all are appreciative of my free way of speaking, it seems. Well, continue your huffing and puffing. Threaten all you like; I'm not worried.

Relationship Note on Abbas

One might imagine that we are two people who could not be more diametrically opposed in air and principle, but I found Prince Abbas surprisingly amenable. It's simply a matter of different avenues toward reaching the same goal. There are always friends you know you will argue with about important things, and I appear to have made one in him. I hope everything he told me about his hopes for Thrax are true, and I will be forever grateful for the gift he gave me, even knowing he had little to gain for it.

It was a pleasure to meet you the other day, Princess. I look forward to further meetings in the future.

Relationship Note on Anze

Like his sister, I enjoy the company of the Redrain 'royalty.' It's a responsibility, not a title. Exactly how nobility is -supposed- to act. He and I had drinks and chatted about the ancient history coming to bite us in the ass and needing to pull together to not get wiped out. Beside, any man who can keep up with me in a drinking contest is worth hanging around.

Why is it the people I find most enjoyable in company are the ones labeled 'savage' or 'uncivilized.' Being brutally honest, expressing ones self, being combat competent, and dressing however you please is uncivilized?

Yeah. Eff Society.

In other news, I'm working with the Merchants guild to start the stockpiling I'm concerned we're gonna need. So perhaps Society can unscrew itself as long as it gets the job done. Not every nob is a knob and not every merchant is a double-chinned plutocrat.

If you wish to hate me?

Do so. I will not stop you.

But do hate me for the right reasons.

Do not hate me because you imagine I am some blackhearted pillager, what lands on the shore and burns down the forest, driving the little forest creatures into a panic before enslaving the towns folk and making thrallls of them, dragging them back to my island lair to toil in my mines and labor in my plantations.

Do not hate me because someone else said something mean or did something mean to someone you like, and so you feel an obligation to hate everything related to that person.

Hate me for me.

Don't worry. I'll give you plenty of good reasons.

Relationship Note on Anze

I've conversed at length with the newly arrived Prince a couple times, and I can see some notable similarities between Anze and his siblings - yet in other ways he's unlike them. Much like the others, he doesn't appear to mind the fact I speak my mind, or give blunt opinions or insights. I think we'll get along alright.

It has occurred to me that I should work on my patience. I am not praying for patience though; we know how the Gods grant that.

You are too. I'm going to get Valerius involved in this one.

She's full of surprises, and an immense joy to be around. I look forward to getting to know more of her in the future.

With all these marriage arrangements happening between the Great Houses, it reminds me that the responsibility of a good match for Cassius and Lydia falls upon my shoulders. Oy vey, and what of my own? Mother still sends me missives weekly, asking after my romantic ventures all the way from Stonedeep. And, my grandfather had the -nerve- to say he doesn't blame her for not being able to convince me to consider any of my suitors more seriously. Pfft. Marriage. Pffft. Maybe next year.

Relationship Note on Nadia

In some ways we are opposites; I hold everything inside, and she is radiant and ebullient. But we share common cause in making sure our voices are heard. It will be through action and not voice, is our oath. Because our words can be ignored. But our victories cannot. I am pleased to be able to count her among my friends.

Writing down my burdens on paper, and letting them float away as ash on the wind was more freeing then I would have thought. I hope to face the Spring with renewed confidence and less sorrow. I know my departed father and siblings would not want us to let what happened to them keep us weighted down.

Relationship Note on Alis

The Little Knight Errant: I think it's rather common for people to look upon ladies that are small like Alis and myself and underestimate us at every turn. There's been several times that we would speak and no one would hear us - even when we shout, they are deaf to what we have to say. We made an oath to let our actions be our voice, our results be our words. It is that promise we made to each other that cemented our friendship, and makes me proud to call the Voice of House Valardin a most cherished companion and ally.

Relationship Note on Nebulosa

Lady Nebulosa has been a companion to me of late, escorting me as Sword of Gemecitta on my research.

I find myself grateful for the company, to be honest, and for the protection of the swordswoman.

I will admit, I do not pray as often as I probably should and nor do I visit the Shrines. The last few nights since the news of Baron Sadoletto Saik I have burnt sage herbs and incense from the sill of my window. The candle set between them burns throughout the night, and since I found myself watching it until the wick is smothered by the pool of its wax. The Greens mourn, and I feel myself despairing for not being home.

Baron Sadoletto Saik was a well-loved leader, and I know he is sorely missed. May he be remembered in the hearts of those who knew him closely, and the thoughts of those that admired him. May he rest.

Everyone's spirits seemed to be lifted during the party where they burned the parchments they'd written with their heaviest of burdens and watched it turn to ash - mine certainly was. This winter has been the hardest yet, but tonight reminded me that the world is still full of things to cherish, of things that still makes me smile. It doesn't matter what the coming days may bring, I'm ready to face it and smile when I conquer it - hopefully there'll be the death cry of a shav or two in all that conquering somewhere!

Relationship Note on Aurelian

He's living the life Ansel wanted. A trained scholar, well-respected, and left to pursue his heart's desires, without the oppressive, overbearing father figure.
