There's been a big demand for Rubicund arms lately. The techniques I'm needing to forge the red steel are right within my grasp. I just hope those with their eyes on weapons made from Rubicund understand just how expensive a weapon like that is sure to be. I can't say that I blame them. It's quite a bit stronger and holds an edge longer than even the highest quality steel.

Relationship Note on Orazio

The Archlector remembered me from when I was a small child. Sadly, I could no say the same but it was a sheer pleasure to make his acquaintance. He's a wonderful conversationalist and has excellent taste in food. I should certainly see to inviting him for dinner in the near future.

Relationship Note on Eirene

Lady Eirene approached me to ask for my help in an upcoming show of arms. She seems like a friendly sort, really. I'm looking forward to the arms exhibition as well.

Lord Tobias wishes to meet with me and discuss some business about supplying Mercier guards with men. I find that a great idea and the perfect example of nobles working with commoners and providing services. He has the crimson blades while foreigners, they have a reputation with their offices now in the city. Many merchants have enjoyed their protection. I wonder if Lord Tobias is a tea or a wine kind of man. Last time we spoke I sent him some our special brandy. Perhaps I would do the same.

Relationship Note on Eleyna

I would not waste my wine on her were she to spontaneously catch fire.

Relationship Note on Rymarr

Quiet, observant, and worthy of being one of the Hundred.

The sun is shining again, the birds singing, and all week people have been writing to me: Come out, Gisele, come out and see the world.

But sun and birds don't remove the shadows in the corners. They don't push away the things printed on memory. And when I opened my door to venture to the bank, a passing horse had laid a very pile before it.

It's safer to stay inside.

I had a good meal with my brother Silas and sister Bethany. Any doubt on wether they are prepared to assume the role destiny has set for them is gone. To be in their presence I can not help but feel to be the dumbest person in the room or the weakest one. It is a good feeling to have. My father always said to surround yourself by better people than yourself. That is my sentiment when sharing a moment with my brother and sister, the same with my cousins. It gives me the confidence to tackle business more aggressively because I know I have a foundation in my family that I can trust.

Even if I've not slept much at all since I came to this fucking city, I'm glad I've came.

Working as part of a unit again, even for the fucked up purpose we had... it was reassuring. Finding new people I can trust and rely on is good.

Finding new kinds of liquor I can drink is even better.

Yes, I'm a fucking lush. It's no secret. Spend your life as a doctor and see what I've seen and see if you don't prefer a gentle state of inebriation to sober harsh reality.

Spring is a busy time of year. Already, I have surpassed being simply a lady's maid. Now, I will also seek to be a Disciple of Vellichor, able to learn more and fill my mind with interesting things. Won't that be fascinating and wonderful?

The Archscholar has given me a trial - one I was working on as it is - and other tasks. I have to teach a lesson on some artistic fancy, and spend two days each week tending to the shrine of Reflections with the silent ones. That shouldn't be too bad, should it?

All of those books...

I have fallen back into my old routine. It seems as if I am doing nothing but working lately, and I was doing so well at being social too! Perhaps I am not cut out for it as I hoped. In the end, that might be for the best. I am going to be venturing into uncharted territory soon, dangerous I've been told.

Relationship Note on Cassius

Isn't it strange how the years pass in the blink of an eye? I haven't seen Cassius in what feels like ages. We were thick as thieves growing up, until he had to leave for his calling to the Knights of Solace. I never really expected to bump into him again, at least not in Arx, but it's an absolute relief to see a familiar face in times like these. The real question is how we'd fare in a spar against each other. I think he's gotten taller since I've seen him last, but I'm pretty sure I can give him a run for his money.

I am more than honored to have been given the task of Minister of Infrastructure. Like everything in life, it will be a challenging task, but one I am most excited to embark on. I have been studying maps of the city, above and beneath the ground, and hope that to make myself more familiar with the merchants and shop owners.

Relationship Note on Leona

A bit of a mystery this one. She's definitely got a story, but I suspect she wants to keep that to herself. I forged a rapier for this member of the King's Own that she seems pleased with.

A lesson I need to learn, I find, is one that I've been told once or twice in the past few months: Listen to what people tell you. Accept their words. I will be better at this.

You are right, my dear. Your opinion doesn't matter. And I am glad to have realised it.

Relationship Note on Calypso

Lady Calypso is quickly becoming someone I feel I can depend on. I've tested her arm in a spar myself, and she's quite capable, showing a determination that very few are able to stick to.

It's that indomitable spirit that I feel will carry her, even when things seem the most bleak. I look forward to getting to know her better.

Relationship Note on Anze

Another cousin, sibling to Freja and Fergus. That great big sword of his hits exactly as you would expect a great big sword to hit ... when he can catch you with it, of course.

It is nice to be surrounded by family, especially so far from home.

There is an organized chaos that surrounds our city. Everything is color coded and cut up into nice equal pieces for nobles to share among themselves. Layers fit on top and below. Some times bleeding into or out of this pieces. The Merciers have had the fortune of being on the right side of trade and I can honestly say that I am very proud of all the work we have put into enriching our family status and wealth. An increase in revenue will help us meet the high demands our clients expect from us. With the warehouse we are able to move more goods. The garden lets us manufacture here in the city. A tea shop will be raised in the coming days for us to sell our tea and soon after we have a suitable place for a workshop we will put one up and provide employment to allot of commoners. The Merciers are prove that success is measured with dedication and you can rise to glory no matter your station in life. Bless Gild's fortune.

I have no idea how this happened.

I had no reason to believe Princess Isolde when she said that Lady Cara was not going to be in the delegation to the Nox'alfar; Cara had her assurances from Dawn, and I certainly hold more faith in her than the princess. And yet now I find that somehow my words from weeks -- or months! -- ago are somehow responsible for Cara no longer being among the party. Cara is furious. Dawn is now furious that I'm endangering myself by being among the party myself. The only reason I'm in the fucking party is to take care of my sister! And yet Dawn got even /more/ angry when I pointed out it's only her fault for not telling me Cara wasn't going.

Everyone is angry at me and none of this is my fault! And now I'm stuck on this stupid fucking delegation. They'll all be pretty sorry when I get eaten by demons.
