Still, Pridehall knows how to party much more than Arx any day.

The first time I sponsored a protege, she was an artist, a woman of fantastical design acumen, who made gowns of fabulous creativity. By the time we went our separate ways, I felt that I had learned much from her as a student of fashion.
The second, he was a brilliant musician, a songster and bard of youth and energy and mystery, and his loss hurt my heart. It hurt my heart all the more to find that he had died, long after we had parted, for he was not only a singer whose music I very much wanted to bring to the world, but a young man I considered very much my friend.
Of course the third was Calarian, and he little needed the social boost. It was more... an excuse, perhaps, for him to continue to serve House Grayson awhile until he felt the work that he had done for us was close enough to finished that he could leave it lie. Now he serves his married house, no doubt with all the conscientious duty he ever felt for us. I miss him, too, but the way I miss friends and family, and of course, he has done me the courtesy of _not dying_, which I very much appreciate.
I don't know what comes next for me, but I think that there are lessons I have learned from this I am happy to share, and I think there are many who do not know how to go about finding a protege or knowing whom to demonstrate their work to in order to find a patron, though they may be deserving indeed.
I look forward to seeing what heights we can help the city's society reach through our efforts to come.

Relationship Note on Alaric
Then, as I settled in, I realized that everything I thought would happen, wasn't happening. I began to doubt myself and who I was. I wondered if staying home in Gemecitta would have been wiser.
I spent a lot of time in taverns and pubs, pondering my lot. I spent a lot of time asking for others to give me work to do.
And then, one day, the King came into the Black Fox and asked me to join him. Me.
He spoke of the War of Stolen Names with me and I found myself at a loss. I knew so little. I could hardly form questions and sentences. For his Majesty's patience and understanding, I'm forever grateful. He never made me feel as if I were less, but rather that I was important to Arx and needed.
What he gave me that day was a direction. A purpose. I found myself spending days and days in the Society of Explorer's Hall, reading the information in the reports and texts in their library. I found myself asking questions, striving to learn. I had something to do with myself.
I no longer looked to others to provide me with work.
I could not say exactly what our King said to me. Not word for word. I feel he gave me more than I could adequately state or even verbalize.
Since then, the paths I take are varied, but all lead to service to our beloved Compact. I have opportunities come to me and some I seek out. I can bring honor to my House and to the Compact. I love Arx for the opportunities here and I adore our King who helped me, totally by accident, find my way again.
I write this because someone I care about very much is lost and I told him this story hoping he might find some hope for himself. Hope and direction.
I share it with Arvum because I think, maybe, he's not the only one out there struggling and it might bring them hope.
Our paths are there before us, but sometimes, we need a nudge to see them.
Perhaps this nudge is for you.

The prospect of becoming a father has me more nervous than I have been in... quite some time.
Advice would be appreciated on what to do about this.

There are many sweet things that cherish during these last few weeks, but the best have been to see a new and happy cadence to someone's step, a new brightness to their face, and to know that I had a very small part in helping to put it there.

For many others in the city, this merchant and Crown Minister is available to do the same. A mere delivery to Jeeves will see it done.

I know your game and doubt it has changed in forty odd years now!
We do need a chance to meet up again though.

While there I was invited to Princess Tikva's birthday celebration by Warrick, a guard I've known in passing and find to be amusing company. As expected, Princess Tikva's event was no small thing, very lavish and fun with more jams than I thought possible to be in one place at a time. Even King Alaric made an appearance.
It was here I saw Princess Zara again and we spoke more personally, inviting me for more talks in the future. I look forward to the day and what opportunities it may bring.
