When choosing between cake and pie ... don't.

There's plenty of room for both.

There are days when it becomes altogether too much to swallow the bile that comes bubbling to the surface, and any bit of good news is welcomed, for it often feels to be in short supply.

The snow outside is calming and peaceful, if nothing else. The way the wind lazily carries it about to settle in and bathe even Crow's Lane with a thick coat of white to contrast the typical brown is a wondrous thing, and even though it quickly turns to slush and mud that can be tracked into nearby bars (with my apologies to those who tend said bars), I don't think I shall ever tire of watching it fall.

There were a great many years when I wished Winter would never come. There are plenty still who currently face that fear. If you find yourself with clothing you no longer wear, do consider donating it to a trusted charity in the Lowers, as there are many and more here who could benefit from a cloak, boots, or gloves. You needn't open your coinpurse to save a life, and some of the lives you save might be the sort worth keeping around.

...I know I'm a poor case in point, but I do hope to remedy that, some day.

Relationship Note on Niklas

I was surprised to hear that none other than the genius playwright Prince Niklas Grayson set out with the party to find us in the wildlands outside of Stormwall.

Let it be recorded here that, beneath his wit and charm, there burns within the soul of Prince Niklas inextinguishable courage, not least of which was displayed in his choosing to wear what Rukhnis accounts an outfit consisting of orange hued ironwool punctuated with teal hedgehogs.

Relationship Note on Valencia

When I come back to the city, the Golden Hart has become one of the first places at which I call. Not only for the company of others, but also - and perhaps foremost - because of its radiant hostess. Valencia has lost none of the light that shines from within her since we last met. She is still a beacon in this city, and weathers her hardships with grace and kindness enough for two.

Time seems to be flying by so swiftly. I think that is partly due to being with child once more. I am at least feeling better now, so that is good.

Relationship Note on Monique

I will certainly never look at baked goods the same way again, having read that - and I can not WAIT for part 2 either.

I may be one of the few people in Arx who welcomed the winter. It reminds me vividly of home.

The end of a story?

Sadness, in a way. You can never read one fresh, again.

Anticipation, too. You catch much more, the second time around.

I am pleased to see people engaging with the Gods and seeking to champion their causes - it shows devotion and is to be welcomed. But, people should be cautious about advancing into such areas without the guidance and help of the Godsworn, especially when it concerns the lost gods for whom so little is still being explored and understood. There is a risk of unguided zeal making an entrance way for misunderstanding, for misunderstanding to become a home for errant belief, for errant belief to grow into heresy, for heresy to cause us all harm.

The Godsworn dedicate their lives to the Gods, and can help you in your worship and your efforts to meet with the commands of the Gods. Seek their advice and counsel, ensure the evil that dwells beyond the mirror does not tempt you from the path.

Time for a new hound. Now to speak with the kennelmaster. The city of Arx has been interesting so far.

I spent the better part of a day exploring the caves in the village near Stormward, but to no avail. There was no secret lair, no lost knowledge or dark pacts that drew the monster to the village's shores.

Sometimes a giant man-eating crab is just a giant man-eating crab, I suppose.

Stop calling my beard hideous! It's glorious. Everyone else thinks so. You're just jealous.

Okay. Sharkenoids officially exist. I owe Niklas 300,000 silver. That a thousand silver per tooth.

It is in our nature to transform loss into virtue, so that we might live with it, so that we can justify it.

I recently read a journal musing on last moments. I too, now wish to put to parchment my own thoughts on them.

To die in someone's arms - could there be anything more comforting? And how selfless a gift, too.

Relationship Note on Bianca

I find the ends are often penned first, and solved before they even begin, where last words are staged and blocked with foreknowledge. The truest endings for me are somewhere in the middle.

The Gilded Page has been fortunate enough to receive a copy of what I can only imagine is the next installment, "The Baron and the Salacious Breadcrumb, Part I". I can honestly say I have never been more aroused by pastry in my life. Author, who are you! I must know!

The chill reaches into my bones and I find myself adding an extra blanket at night to keep the warmth between the sheets. My mother's Southern blood does not help during these times. At least, I can add extra layers to protect myself. Hopefully this year I will avoid any fevers or colds.

Please note that the scholars may take some time preparing your journal for others to read.
