Relationship Note on Nadia

While my event was a success, none of them will ever be as fun as they would have been with you as my co-host.

I spoke to Marquessa Samantha who is taking in refugees to convery the wishes of Marquessa Demura that we help her in her cause. I told her about my project and she thought it was a good Idea as long as it was voluntary. It is so there wasn't any issues. She was curious if the Marquessa was willing to take in Freed THralls. I wasn't sure and asked to get back to her. She asked me about Lord Commander Rymarr after. I answered best I could, I remembered what he was like as a boy and before he left to the Kings Own... but that was a while ago and I havn't spent much time with him now. He's a busy man. Though, there seems to be a rift crowing between the Lyonesse elder and his two sisters. Not sure what's going on but I'm not going to stick my head into it. I look forward to my Hunting trip with Lady Abigail more and more everyday, despite the terrible thing this way comes.

Some of the Commoners I've met on my Journey through the city are very interesting people. A women by the name Alarie was kind enough to buy myself and Lady Abigail drinks. Of course the Lady had to leave for some buisness Alarie and I got to talking. For a trade in some support for my own ventures and perhaps a future economic trade for my people in the future, I would help her spread the word about Black Mountain Trading doing some increased trading and building up food and supply stores incase we have to ride out a seige. I told her of Marquessa Demura's plan and hopefully they'll get together and work something out. Anyways she made me a cloak for my armor in the house colors. It's arm too and goes with normal cloths as well. There was another woman there by the name Emeline selling viles of perfume. I picked out three for the Marquessa, Lady Anabelle, and Lady Abigail. Lady Anabelle loved hers, I havn't given the other two theirs yet. I'm waiting for our hunting trip to give it to Abigail. I hope she likes it.

I was so pleased with the amount of interest for the event I hosted. Getting a ship build was not the hardest part, it was keeping the water warm enough that it did not freeze over and cause someone's death when they jumped into it. No one was hurt beyond a few sniffles from the cold, and fun was had so I feel this was quite the success.

As I said before I've put almost all my energy these days into building the house's prestiege and the attendance of the Academy at Lyon's Redoubt back home. I've been able to garner some support from Commoners and Higher Nobles alike. It may take a few more months and I'm not sure all the Abandoned and Commoners we've recruited will be ready by the time the army heading for Arx attacks... I only hope we can thrawt this action which will give us time to grow these reserve forces.

Relationship Note on Juliet

As a fellow Lycene woman with a 'reputation' (although admittedly in a far different way), I've always felt a certain kinship with Juliet. I know what it is like hear whispers in your wake. It seems we've both done the thing we shouldn't and have embraced our reputations versus letting others define us. People don't tend to like it when you don't act ashamed. They take it even worse when you adopt their insults and turn them into something else altogether. Juliet does this even more beautifully than I have.

Despite the scandal, I think anyone that underestimates Lady Juliet is a fool. She's quicker than most. It almost makes one wonder if the 'reputation' is as accidental as it might appear to be...

Relationship Note on Serafine

You and I could not be more different. I am made of ice, you are made of fire. I have often allowed my head to overrule my heart. You jump into everything with your heart on your sleeve. You are dark and I am pale.

They say the only thing we have in common are our voices.

Yet, you are my sister despite our differences. We may not always understand each other, but the bond we share was forged to outlast any petty misunderstanding. Your joy is my joy. Your grief is my grief.

During the duel, even though you struck first blood on my intended, I was in awe of your strength and speed and the grace in which you handle a blade. I am so proud of everything you have accomplished since your return to us.

Going over all of the plans for the upcoming siege and the efforts beyond the walls to keep things safer here, I am reminded that we truly have some of the most talented minds and fierce hearts working towards the survival of humanity. While there are some who would crumble at the monstrous task that lays before us, the are others that would rise to meet the challenge. I would like to note a few in particular. They are not the only ones who have stood out to me, but they have left an impression very firmly on me this past week.

Princess Alis Valardin - A steadfast commander who loves her people fiercely. She has been instrumental in rallying troops and supporting me with an ear to listen and advice when I need it.
Prince Talen Velenosa - When give direction, Talen takes action and swiftly. I appreciate how well he can rally others to a cause.
Regent Duke Gabriel Bisland - He has been an welcomed ally and steadfast supporter of my command on this upcoming mission. I appreciate the level of trust he places in my ability.
Lady Eirene Malvici - I always know that Eirene has us covered when it comes to on-site medical needs, but she has really stepped up to make sure all of our bases are properly covered and communicated.

These names are just a few of those who have take the extra steps and pushed a little harder than they were being asked to. I am proud to fight beside all those dedicating themselves to this effort.

Relationship Note on Julea

Still consider her one of my closest friends in all of Arx. She is a pillar in the face of the winds and so too it is with a eye of regret and a hand of help she moves on into a new realm where Haati does not wish to be himself. That of the nobility and all it's trappings that one can not shirk off... Especially those that will help all of Thrax, even if it mean a marriage.

Relationship Note on Joscelin

Having met with her again, there is a strong willed woman that runs the mechanization of the guild and all that are a part of it and insightful as well. She understands those that are int he guild and has been through quite a troubling time with the house of Thrax. I suppose it is all i can hope that after hearing of such horrid tales she has come through it stronger, but also still willing to sit and chat with a Thraxian male.

Relationship Note on Selene

An interesting woman this Whisper and someone I'll have to look into more as time goes by. Perhaps she may be able to help generate interest in the shop if she decides to become a part times clerk for the shop itself. She certainly has the mind of the sale and the allure to go along with it.

Fire. It is a powerful thing, potentially destructive and damaging when out of control. Yet, it has the ability to keep us warm during the coldest of winters, and to illuminate the darkest of nights. When my heart broke into a million pieces, only the love of my daughters managed to put it back together. Only their presence kept me from giving in to the heartache of loss, and it is an ache I feel keenly still.

Then another blow was dealt when I lost my daughter, one of two that managed to keep me together during a very dark time. My heart could have broken right there and then, but it didn't. Fire, it can be used to forge, to build and repair. It can burn and it can sooth. And it helped illuminate the dark tunnel I had to walk through.

You are a flame that burned through my night, that kept me from turning into ice and shattering, and because of this there no words that can properly say, thank you.

Relationship Note on Lianne

You are something very special, and House Pravus does well for seeing it. Watching you think through something, a situation or a problem makes me smile. It is similar to watching a painter, or listening to a gifted musician. You're brilliant, never doubt that and you will find someone that will see this brilliance and nurture it. Don't let anyone ever question the beauty that is your mind.

ALARIC IS AWAKE.

It wasn't that long ago I thought just getting him back would solve all our problems.

Too much has happened since. Lost one too many people. Learnt a little too much about the nature of this world. All those dark little misgivings I always had and usually ignored got louder and louder.

But he's still my friend. And I'm still going to be happy, damnt.

Relationship Note on Joscelin

The Guildmaster is a good woman, and yet she leaves me feeling ashamed for no reasons that are her fault.

Why does she appear to grieve so much more for the passing of my own family than I do?

I'll have to seek her out for a cup of tea again one of these days.

Relationship Note on Michael

Michael being infatuated is nothing new.

Michael mentioning a girl to me is nothing new.

Michael mentioning a girl by name to me is nothing new.

Michael rambling at a messenger to convince me of something is nothing new, either.

But for him to suddenly talk politics while doing that?

This is worrisome. It reminds me of the first time Gabriel handed him a sharpened blade.

I had a good governess.

My mother, who was also Voice of Gemecitta once (and was, by what others said when they could bring themselves to speak of her, clever and charming and everything a Lycene noblewoman should be), died when I was born. My father remarried when I was still little more than a babe-in-arms and left me to Duke Marco and his duchess to raise. For all intents and purposes, I was raised as my cousin's much younger sister. I was given the same education as her--one suited to a future duchess.

I drove my governess to despair. She tried to teach me about duty and politics and law and all I wanted to do was read poetry and chase ghosts. She only looked more and more disappointed, and railed against me for never listening. Once she told me that filling my brain with cobwebs was a poor way to honour the gods who had given me such a fine one.

She was wrong, however. I did listen. I just didn't care.

This week it all came back to me. Years of tutorings, all the books I squinted at while trying to hide poetry and ghost stories behind them. All the things I must do, for Gemecitta, for my family, for my cousin.

I'm not sure I was meant for this either. Perhaps the gods who gave me a clever brain also gave me too soft a heart.

Relationship Note on Jael

Lady Jael Laurent is an Oathlander, though she wishes she were a bear. I don't know what to make of that save to say I'd better not leave too much fish or honey lying around the Grayson estate when I invite her over.

Relationship Note on Gian

What an odd way of meeting, sitting at table with people well above our station. But you seem steady, and brave, and sensible, and those are things that when seen in those who serve a house speak well to the house that shelters them.
