Relationship Note on Ainsley

Regime changes are always difficult. This great chaos that has fallen into my small hands is an entirely different animal. ...Far be it from me to question the great blessing I have in my cousin, Prince Ainsley. He is quite possibly the most virtuous of my kin. His ready dedication to good at the cost of his own personal happiness fills me with pride.

Though the list of tasks that I am honored with continues to grow, assisting him in realizing his noble destiny remains chief among them.

For all the duels we have back home in our city-states, we Lyceni been surprisingly well behaved in Arx city.

Honestly I'm surprised I haven't pissed off anyone to call me to task yet and demand I name a champion. Poor Kima must be bored.

Maybe I'm actually learning tact and diplomacy. Or maybe I'm just not trying hard enough.

Relationship Note on Max

So maybe I considered stabbing him the first time we met... Can you blame me? Since then I have come to know him slightly better and have discovered his own brand of 'charm'. There is something to be said about a man who can pull limericks from his had at a moments notice and he's certainly never a bore.

Relationship Note on Ferrando

Ever the stalwart hero. I cannot imagine anyone thinking Ferrando an oaf, of all things. There is something to be said about knowing you are safe in a world that seems to be slowly unraveling. He is our Champion, our Guardian and for those of us lucky enough to call him so, our friend. - Don't let the bulging muscles fool you, he's a sharp mind underneath all that brawn.

Relationship Note on Calandra

I've heard stories of her singing and I am humbled to say they are all true. We are no strangers to musical talent in the Whisper House but this little 'Nightingale of the Boroughs" can outshine all of them. Keep an eye on this one, she will be soaring towards the sun.

Time has many odd idiosyncrasies that are quite exclusive to it. For once, it is the most attentive rival of the noble lord. Time will dig through your lies. If you want it to go slow, it will go so fast that you will barely be able to catch up with it, as much as you might want to. If you want it to go fast, it will go so very painfully slow.

In Arx, Time has not abanoned me. Time has heard me and it has galloped from my hands. I have reached one month in the compact, the time I had established for my objective of reconnoitering the political frontispiece. I think I have succeeded. Now it is time to begin my work.

The dinner at Malvici's was interesting. The presence of Hish Highness Anze was telling, and speaks of closer commitment between the house and that of Redrain, which is good. He agreed to speak more to me of the Stone Grove, when we are both free to do so.

The Stone Grove. I've heard a little of it, how plants grow there that will grow nowhere else. It sounds precisely as the type of place so mentioned in my work; but inside the city and in the care of Redrain. I don't doubt they'll give permission, should I ask to speak there, but it is something to consider.

Poor Mistress Hana. She's been so harassed and busy of late, and her grandmother's death, in addition to this. I offered what comfort I can, and smuggled her into Saik Tower for a night or two away from it all, a place to grieve without dealing with customers or the scene it happened. She brought her grandmother's cat, and Aletta refrained from chasing her at all. Myrinda's sharp tongue lives on, it seems.

Relationship Note on Signe

We may have just met tonight, but you are quickly becoming one of my favorite people in this city. Remember, you can handle anything (or anyone) you put your mind to!

PS. I might be able to offer a few tips and tricks, if you want!

There are good nights.
There are great nights.
And the there's the night when you get carried off like prized booty after a few drinks and jokes with good friends.

The only thing that would have made it better?

Relationship Note on Deva

She has fire, she has passion, sometimes she's an emotion tangled together like a ball of string. Like a primal nature herself.
All her life she vexed me, sometimes I think on purpose.
But I never stopped loving her. As I struggle to learn the nature of things, I begin to understand her and love her even more and the woman she has become.

Isn't that the story as old as time itself? And the cycle continues.

Daughter--Deva, I love you.

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.

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.
