Relationship Note on Muiryn

It won't be tomorrow.
It won't be the day after that.
It may not be for weeks, or even months.
But my revenge will be the wrath of the storm on your bacon-thieving ass.

Relationship Note on Derovai

An old friend from my days in training under the late Lord Commander Dayne. I've never quite been sure if it's a good thing or not that he can read me like a book - but then, that is exactly the sort of thing he's good at in general. Canny, clever, too smart, and a sometimes scathing wit that I am perhaps grateful has never been directed right at me.

the leaves of the vine slither
emit the musk of passions hues
an ancient creature brought hither
master's hands on his comely muse

take heart sword of the vulpine
a moment's sin is its own bliss
lakes of sorrow a salt rind
enveloped in the sharpest kiss
no never, she says, of her own mind.

I think I am jealous. I think I am impatient.

I think - I think - I think...

... I think I will take a week and serve with the Silent Reflections. I need an object lesson.

(Until the next, scholar.)

Last 24 hours have been emotional, wrought with lack of sleep.

Today was full of more hope for myself. A better peace. Even though there has been disappointments and heart break, there is always room for growth.

Even after a flowering lily is burned to the ground, the bulb will still rise life after a resting season.

There is still hope.

After this evenings duel. How does a person get people to duel over them? I'll never be so lucky since I can fight for myself. I couldn't possibly take a side they both had valid points and fought well. Duke Leo Fidante said so many passionate words, make a goddess swoon. I had to leave so much roar and ruckus.

Bed early tonight, after restless sleep for many nights. Sleepless Knights.

Did it again.

Always have to go and get involved, whether or not I need to. Whether or not I really even ought to. I don't even work there! Just that little voice that says, nobody needs to get hurt. Nothing needs to get broken. You can fix this.

And sure, nothing got broken, nobody got hurt, and I'd like to think the Count ended up having a better evening in the end anyway, but it's still infuriating how I can't control it.

Been going down there a lot lately since it's nice to have a place where I don't have to be "on" all the time, but maybe I need a break. Maybe I'll start dropping by the Spirits more, it's a nice invigorating hike across Arx and the Redrains can cook up some damned good venison besides.

Lady Calypso insisted I attend the Malvici family dinner. My manner weren't up to it but I survived. I was introduced to Prince Anze, and survived that, too. She'd mentioned a fellow named Costas, and he was there as well. I'm told he lives in the Crown Arms as well. There was talk of going to the Hall of Heroes. We also talked about starting a shop...They liked the name Champion Chainmail, so maybe it'll be opening soon.

Relationship Note on Cassius

My brother is marrying a duchess and is leaving. I'm not sure that I can stand it. Through all the tumult recently, he's been the one person that I could count on and while I know that I should be more concerned with his feelings about this whole thing, I can't help but feel abandoned.

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...

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.
