I'm glad that even when the world is going to crap that my family (and by extension our vassals and retainers) is focused on the important things.

As Anze saw, we don't do dinners. We do briefings...

You are such a baby.

Also, I do not giggle.

Relationship Note on Eleyna

That's twice in two weeks.

I hate you.

I bet you and Isolde are just giggling away behind those masks of yours.

I am unable to sleep this evening. Life heavy on my mind. I suppose I should try a stiff drink to steady myself for sleep. I need answers and the one person I want to speak with to clarify things, is so dreadfully far away. What would Father do?

Relationship Note on Viviana

Arx feels more like home today.

Her smile makes me smile, her questions give me comfort, and her approval means the world.

For all that is wrong in the world right now, all is right in mine tonight.

It's odd, really, to be both so happy for someone and yet sad at the same time.

The Regency is putting together a Common Council.

I am incredibly happy about this. I rarely speak of politics in general, as the Guildmaster, many take the things I say, my ideas and opinions, and apply it to the autonomous collective that is the Guild. I do not speak for them; they speak for themselves. I do my best to provide an environment that they can flourish in, be it protection, property, funding of all kinds, encouragement, advice, networking, the list goes on.

Of late, of course, with the demise of several of my people, people are talking about a curse, a disgruntled dead guildmember taking his ire out on those that live and breathe.

Hogwash. We flourish.

That being said? You can bet your ass I'm going to offer armed protection to anyone of the Guild that asks for it.

It has been brought to the attention of the author of certain works that the pen name that one chose has an unfortunate correlation.

Rest assured, dear people of Arx, that no offenses were meant.

The author intends to find a new name - and suggestions will be considered.

Relationship Note on Elonso

It is ever so enjoyable to have a meeting between two lords of houses in good standings such as House Fidante and House Pravus, and to find a good conversationalist and ambitious lord with whom I can discuss business.

Learning from my own mistakes can make me a better person. Seems I have some light bedtime reading ahead of me tonight. Though I'd rather dream and feel the grass between my toes. Or maybe wet sand beneath my feet.

Relationship Note on Deva

I sincerely wish we had more hours available in the day, if only so that Princess Deva and I could finally go have that drink. We share quite a few things in common; and we are excellent table companions at the Regent's Council meetings thus far.

This is bad and I have exposed myself to the world and they have seen my black soul. They know if the horrors I have done and at least I was told of the deal that was made. I need to seek a way to redeem myself and the horrible deeds down in my flesh. I have a plan and I need to speak to the Duchess about it before I move forward one way or the other.

Thank you for helping me see the light even if it means and what we have is smashed. I will redeem myself soon....even if it is my life.

[ From the polite propagandist, B. Mercier: ]

Six Ways to Make People Like Thee:

- Become genuinely intrest'd in other people. "You can make more cater-cousins in two months by being intrest'd in those folk, than in two years by making those folk intrest'd in thee.

- Rememb'r yond a person's name is, to yond person, the sweetest and most imp'rtant sound in any language. "the average person is more intrest'd in their own name than in all the other names in the world put togeth'r. We can make people feel extreme value and imp'rtance by remembering their name.

- Be a valorous hark'r. Encourage others to speak of themselves. The easiest way to become a valorous conv'rsationalist is to become a valorous hark'r. To be a valorous hark'r, we might not but actually care about what people has't to say. Many times people want not an entertaining conversation partner; those gents just want someone who is't shall hark to those folk.

- Talk in terms of the other person's interest. The royal road to a person's heart is to speak of the things that gent 'r the lady treasures most. If 't be true we talk to people about what those gents art interest'd in, those gents shall feel did value and value us in return.

- Make the other person feel important – and doth sincerely. We love to feel imp'rtant and so does’t ev'ryone else. People shall talk to us f'r hours if 't be true we allow those folk to speak of themselves. If 't be true we can make people feel important in a sinc're and appreciative way, then we shall win all the cater-cousins we couldst ev'r dream of.

- Finally, the most imp'rtant rule is these: do not be an ass.

I suppose it was a foolish inclination anyway. Even more so for being rather obviously unwelcome.

I am weary. I am tired.

Yet I cannot find solace in sleep.

I am fighting a war on so many fronts, I have lost track of which way I'm facing.

I'm not even safe from attack from my own family.

I do, I do completely understand how our cousin Horatio set that fire. Goodness, thankfully I documented the careful combination of herbs, powders, and then I added this terrible smelling liquid and --

FWOOM.

I really do not think that is the noise the wooden trunk made when it went up in flames, but, it was close enough. Worse was the noise that Lisette made when she helped me snuff out the fire before it caught on anything else.

(No. No. I would rather not discuss my emotional reaction following the incident, scholar. I merely wanted to make the memory of my first alchemical experiment permanent. Yes - there were things in there that I - )

Relationship Note on Alis

It's almost funny how much we have in common, aside from the most obvious similarity of being the voice of our respective elder (in my case only barely by minutes, thank you) brothers. I find she speaks my mind more often than not, and we even share an affinity for martial pursuits. My hope is that we may find the time to catch up more often, and strengthen ties between our two houses.
