Such a beautiful wedding celebration, and to be the first to sign the book? Priceless. I may not have won the puzzle game held by the newest Keaton (who looked quite fabulous, I might add), but at least I did get to lay to some small victory. What was that? A chocolate fountain? Huh, I must have been far too distracted to even notice...

There was much celebration at the Grayson-Keaton event. The topping of the cake so to speak was seeing the Queen and High Lord fall into the chocolate fountain in hopes of finding a puzzle piece that flew into it. The fountain was saved when one Lord Mattheu Rivenshari found it.

Congratulations to the newly married couple!

The puzzle piece simply slipped. Anyone that is curious, that's what happened. Oh there might have been another reason, however that's what I know of the event that led to the most amazing dance.

I'm either the BEST mom in the world for NOT participating in a chocolate fight my kids couldn't join in, or the WORST mom in the world for NOT participating in a chocolate fight when given the chance.

I so love the season we are about to enter in. Weddings and balls are such a delight. It is fun to dress up every now and then. Sometimes we need joy and love to balance out the despair and war that surrounds us.

I think this is the first time I have heard Her speak.

I could listen to her speak forever.

Passion Memoriam. She said some other things that confused me.

I need to see what Symonesse makes of the spider web and what to do with it.

Hope, and the passion memoriam. I'll enjoy the quiet. The peace. There's blessed peace.

I have a concept in my mind, a thought that I take great comfort in. A sentiment I wish I could share with other but after deep reflection for a while I've decided there's no way to convey it that isn't patronizing. I suppose we each must rationalize our individual circumstances ourselves.

Relationship Note on Lore

Over the years I've have had both the opportunity and distinct honor to engage in the treasured tradition of patronage with a number of exemplary individuals. As we know all good things come to an end, but there is often a new beginning to follow it. A relationship may draw to a natural close or the learning party may simply have nothing more they can be taught from their patron. When one grows beyond, this creates a space to be filled and new one would eventually rise to take its place. Like most people, I expect the best of myself and those around me. To become a protégé of mine means accepting the many expectations I have of you, but they are no less than what I expect of myself. I am confident that my latest protégé will not disappoint in this regard.

It's with this cycle of renewal in mind that I write on the subject of my latest sponsorship. Following very thorough discussion on the subject and mutual agreement, Lore Artiglio and myself have determined that we should work together to our mutual and individual benefit. She has committed herself to the vast undertaking of dealing with my random bouts of eccentricity and for that she has my immense respect. My hope is that over a long enough period of time we will both have opportunity to grow as part of this partnership and become something greater than we were each day before the present.

By its nature patronage is an investment. It is often of the self; but also time, resources, attention, favor, connection, and more. Ostria, House Mazetti, and I stand to benefit from our arrangement and I will strive to open avenues to ever higher echelons on behalf of or in contribution toward Lore's own achievements and successes. As with any other investment that I hold, I stand prepared to offer nurturing care to promote its healthy growth or tenaciously safeguard it as circumstances dictate.

Hello Arx, how long has it been?

Though I live and breathe Westrock Reach, I'm so terribly happy to be back in the city once again. Already I have made so many wonderful connections and discovered along the way a Lycene lord who is as fond of coffee as am I.

And Lady Mabelle! What can I way of her? I am determined that she and I will be the very best of friends! I am to co-host her in the Annual Honey Festival, the arrangements for which are even now well underway. I do hope that the seamstresses of Arx have plenty of gold and black silk to hand, for there will be the most wonderful of prizes for the best bee outfit of the day. Should I mention that there will be a sting in the tail on the day?

To those who approach me I say:

The Laurent Family are ever fortunate to have family, friends, partners and people of interest who are willing to help with the reconstruction of Artshall.

My sister is back in town! This is exciting news!

Even as I've trained with them as we've grown. We've been part of the same crew within the floatila. It's still a treat to watch the two that have been there to help me learn. It's a two way path, while Violeta and Tregva have been hired to help me in my duties. They are still friends to me.

In the torchlight tourney I was proud to be able to watch both of them take to their best in a spar. It wasn't until the last round that they succumbed to two sisters fighting against each other. And in that, we have a group of small impressionable minds that are curious about what an eel might have to do within the spar of the two.

Akamos is a fair match, and was a strong opponent to be paired with. It was good to be able to spar with another that knows the waters over land. I wouldn't turn down another spar from them. There's always room to learn and grow.

Relationship Note on Magaen

The war ended years ago, yet its events live on. My sisters grow more powerful, estranged, like the crowns of two great trees expanding to fill the same canopy, never touching, while I flit along our exposed ancient roots on the forest floor.

Dear Scholar,

The children and I went on an adventure this evening and watched the Clearlake Torchlight Tourney. They were awfully excited that Lord Mattheu Rivenshari was to fight. There was good food and drink as well as lots of fights to watch. But in the end it was Lord Rivenshari that won the match. Akamos Cyrto'ani was a worthy opponent. I was afraid this battle was to go longer than it did.

The Countess Acantha Clearlake was a gracious hostess. Her beaver was quite fun to watch.

Princess Denica Thrax was very welcoming in exchanging words about what otters could do and little Ilan was delighted to have another princess attention. I cannot wait for the next event.

And yes, who could forget the sisters Violeta and Tregva? Even if my children were asking me questions about words used. Raya screaming about winning when Tregva won that fight. Raya demanding that her siblings share their ginger cookies the next they have them even when Sil spat on his hand in their handshake.

The funniest part was watching Ilan in dismay when Lord Rivenshari got confused on which twin was who. I being told that Flounder had gone mad. It is very interesting to see the world in children's eyes. May they always keep that in them even when the world goes dark.

I told a few people this and now I take my power back from them. I take the power back from any who think they can use it over me. Besides, how can I expect to be told the truth when I'm lying...I'm done lying about who I am.

Krosse is no more. The name that hid me for all these years, is gone. Publius has returned. Publius is the name of my family, the name of a strong and powerful Merchant House from Cardia. Yes. I am from Cardia. I am a Cardian Merchant.

I take my power back.

Today, after so many years, I am once again, Dacian Publius.

How do I phrase this? I'm so well-trained in preparing with caution for the worst-case scenario, I've forgotten... one doesn't necessarily scramble to make ready for the good thing promised.

Hope on blue wings.
