I have to thank Sophie and Legate Orazio for making sure my "death" wasn't a permanent condition. That being said, Gloria blessed me in two ways: not only did She give me the stamina to survive, she also empowered Reese after my prayer to defend me as I was covering the healers' retreat. We will prevail.

I've decided that Dash runs around too much to get fat enough to cutely waddle everywhere. Shame that.

I took Red officially.

Where are you, I wonder?

Relationship Note on Sparte

Some people react to real combat by withering in on themselves or tensing so much they look ready to snap at any moment. And others, those born for the rush of conflict, whether they take joy in that calling or not, are more themselves in those frantic moments than any other time in their lives.

I knew Spar would be a kindred spirit, but didn't know just how much so until I saw him play wiseass to the face of an angry Bringer beserker.

I love this kid. We need to find him more deadly enounters to be flung into. His humor during them is a gift to the world.

My collection of bringer skulls is pretty, but not big enough. I do so very much enjoy expanding it though. And yes, I say this, even knowing I will likely start receiving more angry letters now about inappropriate behaviour, though I somehow doubt I'll get raked over the coals for taking glee in this particular sort of slaughter. Then again, never underestimate the ability for people to get upset over things. Anyone care for a debate about Bringers rights to life?

I dream at night. The men are ready and while I wish not for foul things in war. I have the harpoons lashed to the decks. The barrels ready. The men who taste for a gloried death have anointed to their chosen fate. Every ship in the fleet waits with impatience but none more so than I.

Somewhere out there the eye lingers. And somewhere I shall hunt it and I shall take it as my prize. The horror shall sleep.

"Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering kraken; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee."

I'm sure I'll never make a shot like that again in my lifetime, but -damn- did it feel good to stick an arrow in a herald's eye. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't proud of being able to do so from the ramparts as the siege first arrived. In the grand scheme of things, I know one shot won't be what makes the difference. Most of all, I look forward to the moment he crumbles under our collective efforts. We are all capable of more than we ever expected when everything is on the line. My world may be shaken as of late, but my faith in our people remains steadfast.

Been a lot of talk and a lot of thinking about gardens recently it seems like.

I think most people would consider the difference in gardens being ones that are raised for aesthetic value and ones raised for food.

I think that the real difference should be between those that are crafted and those that are allowed to live on their own. The shrine of Lagoma and the Stone Grove are both places where the plants have been allowed to take their own path, and that is far more interesting than the carefully crafted rows and placements of those gardens made for lords and ladies who want to look at pretty things and ignore what they really are supposed to symbolize.

I have often wondered whether the Vellichoran scribes operate with a skeleton crew throughout much of the week, but reinforce their numbers every seven days to handle the dramatic influx of journal deliveries. I will have to make a few inquiries to appease my curiosity.

P.S. Future reader in decades or centuries ahead, do not believe that the Vellichoran scribes were actually skeletons. It is a figure of speech. Thank you.

War comes to Arx. And I look from the balcony window with an eye to the port. I must confess I care little about this war besides the glory of my brethren who must unfortunately miss the death and rather Thraxian war that will take place in the Salt.

So long as the port remains open my time shall be spent killing Gyre. With luck they won't let Arx get sacked while I spread fear in the deep.

Relationship Note on Tikva

Lady Tikva possesses a youthful energy that is refreshing during a siege. No doubt that energy is what gives her the motivation to perform the duties which she does. She cares a great deal and finds the tales of others refreshing, which in many cases I would find to be intrusive and altogether unwelcome. When she asks however it seems out of genuine curiosity rather than some attempt at gathering information for her own uses. I look forward to learning more of her and the Riven's in general. Aside from her personality she is apparently a scout of some sort, which is a decidedly dangerous role from a military standpoint due to so often being separate of a larger military force and often rather close to, or even behind, enemy lines.

I'll pray to the gods for her continued safety.

Relationship Note on Luca

Luca took a liking to me for reasons I'll never really understand, but I like him as well. We have very little in common on most days, but his guidance in the art of not being where people who don't like us are aiming has probably saved my life several times over. I've even managed to save his life, though that was just the right place at the right time. I'd say he is a good man but he'll likely read this, and might take offense. I am fortunate to know you, Frog Prince.

Relationship Note on Joscelin

As usual, the Guildmistress' work is absolutely exquisite. The latest piece I've commissioned was more for function than beauty, but, even in that, Mistress Joscelin has created a work of art.

I was also more than happy to support her efforts to supply the city's medical centers as well. I might not be able to do much, but if honey infused soap can do it, it seems a ridiculously small price to pay compared to the efforts of others.

Relationship Note on Ann

I wandered into a bar, yelled at the staff, 'saved' a princess, kicked a bouncer, and got vomit on my shoes. Is...Is this what it's like being a normal young person? It is very strange, and I'm not sure if I like it or not. The fact that it was greatly amusing makes me wonder if I should be praying more.

Relationship Note on Gisele

Having never met her in person -- maybe I did and don't remember -- I can spot her character straight off. A dutiful and compassionate young woman, set to do right by Arvum in her own gentle way. I was once like that.

Lord Mydas and Lord Karadoc have both been instrumental in establishing and organizing some of the foundational methods. Though much of our correspondence has been via messenger, no small portion is on subjects not many individuals could easily follow. Lord Mydas was recommended to me once in the past, though for a task of an entirely different nature. His talents were not unknown to me. Lord Karadoc's come as a pleasant surprise.

Relationship Note on Ailys

She always tends my wounds, those that people can see, and those that people cannot.
Without her I would feel too much that I shouldn't.
She always knows to bring tea. I love tea. She knows I don't like wine. Wine and things that make my stomach turn in knots.
Like wine.

I could not be who I am without my sister.

Relationship Note on Silas

Generous man. Loyal and reliable. Also, he had deep enough concern about my safety to fashion me armor and a bow.
He asked nothing in return for it. He wanted me to feel safe.
Then he also gifted me a bird perch for Butler and my other birds to come.
Three gifts.
I don't know yet what to give him in return. I'm so bad at this, friend thing.

Silas is a steadfast friend to my brother, and maybe to me?
