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.

I feel like you are ignoring my missives. Yes, you.

Relationship Note on Cordelia

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.

Relationship Note on Dagon

Here is a Prince at least working against the stereotype the North has against Thrax; he didn't outright threaten to thrall me when it was suggested I cross-train and shadow some of his men on his ship. He even approached me to meet later concerning it. Though, he did say that I should stab the first man that grabs me to earn their respect? I guess he has yet to hear the rumor in Northern taverns that I have gelded a man for less. Complete rumor though, that. Completely.

A letter to the dead: Years now and I still recall you.

"Night closed around the conqueror's way,
And lightnings show'd the distant hill,
Where those who lost that dreadful day
Stood few and faint, but fearless still.
The soldier's hope, the patriot's zeal,
For ever dimm'd, for ever crost --
Oh! who shall say what heroes feel,
When all but life and honour's lost?

I remember your smile so vividly I wonder still if mine will ever again be true.

Relationship Note on Valkieri

I have only had a few meetings with the Rubino's voice, but he speaks as a soldier and cares little for pretense. I have been duke long enough to find some nostalgia in that straight-forward nature. He makes for worthy, if bracing, company.

Relationship Note on Belladonna

Pravus has always held a reputation, but the late Duke was a good man and his family has been true to me in turn. It has been too long since I last connected with Lady Belladonna, however she has grown well into her role as Duchess and I think she does her father proud.

Relationship Note on Dawn

Lady Dawn is now the Regent. It pleases me to see her achieve this, for I know how hard she's worked for it. It pleases me and it gives me hope, even in these dark times, to see Lady Dawn leading the Compact gives me hope.

It's not a feeling I thought I'd experience any time soon.

Relationship Note on Eleyna

My dear Eleyna. She was always so good at remembering my lessons, and that hasn't changed. I enjoy the time we've spent together. It brings back a lot of memories.

She's seen a lot of tragedy, but I can see that it's made her stronger, not weaker. I see you, my Eleyna. I see you in ways others don't.

Relationship Note on Serafine

Such a wild child she's become. And yet, I sometimes see in her a little bit of that young girl that I used to teach how to fight. I miss that young girl, but she has become a young woman and she's had a very particular life.

One that's recently proved quite useful, considering the translation she was able to provide for that treaty.
