Stagnation is no way to be. A lifetime of spite, and furor, and all she had to show for it were the scars on her back.
Those scars empower ME now; I will keep them covered because they belong to a past that was ill-judged and brashly preserved, but they are covered in a finery she never knew. There's a blade in my hand, and the iron in my blood has become steel. My foundation remains the same, but with each brick laid a tower climbs skyward. It seems there's worth in other souls, after all, in their capacity to reinforce that teetering brickwork. In time I will name them, but for now that is the least I can do for myself. My name is Qadira Thorne, and into this rising monument I plant a flag.
One foot in front of the other, one more day survived, has become a race to the finish. This isn't her fight any more. It's mine, and by that name I'll win it. This is strength, this is power, and it is mine where it was never hers. To those that watch and listen, I am grateful.
Keep watching, and see me soar.
Keep listening, and hear my roar.

You need not take off your ring ever if you do not wish to.
There will always be grief, sorrow, and loss. They have become a part of you, as they have a part of me.
But we find the light in our despair, and joy is still possible.

Legate Ailith introduced me to sweet ginger candies and mint tied in my handkerchiefs. it certainly helped with the nausea. Well some.
Also, better to be a whale than a puffer fish.

Relationship Note on Colette
This time, I put you on your back, and though I find myself pleased with the outcome, I remain in disbelief. I know when my strikes are hitting proper. I've been at this quite some time, and you just kept coming back for more, like a woman possessed. The only other person I've seen stay up on their feet so long past their limit is my own self, so it's with nothing but with respect that I proclaim you an ally and a rival, little Laurent.
I look forward to learning from one another, speaking through words and fists alike.
Best of five?

I'm not sure I'm worried about being fat as a whale...
But this nausea? I could do without.
At least the cranky has been put on hold awhile.

It always has been.
Thank you, dear Cousin, for seeing after me.
Such is why you are one of my favorites.
