Relationship Note on Samantha

I was going to say it was ironic given that one of his kinsmen is Death’s chosen, but your point is very...pointy.

Relationship Note on Harlan

We haven't met, but do you want mine? Two reasons:

1: Dame Thena WILL drink hers sometime. I will ensure it.

2: I only made it through two rounds of the liquor before having the good idea to bow out of the drinking contest. Discretion is, after all, the better part of valor. And as you can see from Lady Keaton's and Magpie's reactions, that was obviously the wisest call. It tasted like a 7-year-old girl's birthday cake, if that 7-year-old secretly hated all the guests at her party.

Find me at the Murder of Crows if you have an interest. I'll be the only one able to form coherent sentences for the next few days.

Relationship Note on Nierzen

While I don't judge the family by the actions of one man, it amuses me that Master Nierzen has chosen this hill to die upon, considering the fact that one of his kinsmen was (and presumably still is) a Rex'alfar agent devoted to destroying the Compact.

I might be persuaded to take that off your hands, unless more bottles of this insanity can be procured elsewhere.

The Nox'alfar murdered and mutilated many good people, two high Lord's amongst them two High Lords. Regardless of whose fault that was I think we need to stop acting offended when people mistrust and want nothing to do with them. Or when the point out the are perhaps, still dangerous.

Being comfortable that this alliance with them was the right decision is something that is going to take years... Maybe even decades or generations before many of us feel it was the right decision. In the end we did renew the treaty, but there is no reason we should not expect the Nox'alfar to actually try to earn our trust now.

If the Nox'Alfar saw us the same way we saw the Abandoned, they would have attempted to force us to swear fealty to them and abide by their laws, as opposed to renewing ties of diplomacy that were centuries old.

Relationship Note on Thena

Written in bold, block letters, with more flourish than is strictly necessary, is the following attributable quote:

"I apologize that I misinterpreted the situation." - Dame Thena Grayhope.

Underneath it, a jotted note in Derovai's regular hand:

I need to enlist a Scholar of Vellichor to make copies for distribution. Please contact me if you have an interest.

Relationship Note on Ariella

A lovely woman, features dark yet vibrant of voice. She defines the very existence of the word boisterous. Equal parts beautiful and lovely, she is also equal parts sailor and troublemaker mixed with those lovely parts. It makes for one interesting - and particularly entertaining family member. I love you, dear cousin. Never change - for you certainly are a jewel the way you are.

Relationship Note on Edward

It has been fun getting to know the Baron. He is reserved, yet can be bold when he wishes to. He has been a good friend and I certainly recommend him as a confidant. He is strong of body, and of mind. I've enjoyed getting to know him, and he has advice that can cut right to the heart of the matter, yet be just as effective.

Relationship Note on Quenia

My darling sister has once again risen to the occasion and used her powers of persuasion, called in favors, or just used pure might to pull the Igniseri family together once again for a successful family dinner. It's always nice to get everyone together and we manage that no one loses an arm. The food was good, and..Bacon Muffins were donated by the good Lord Edain from Valardin. I hear the house primarily runs on bacon as fuel. I cannot say I am quite of the stomach for continual bacon, however they produce many stalwart knights and I am not so physically stalwart, so perhaps there is something to this bacon physique diet?

I got to say hello to most my family here, the lovely Echo whom is as fierce as she is beautifully petite. The lovely Ariella, whom starts out good company and I swear becomes even better so the more she drinks, though the bawdiness is equal to that of any seasoned sailor. And of course my sister, whom managed somehow to keep us all in line. Good show, sister of mine. To any reading know that the lovely Marquessa Quenia is not only intelligent, a good leader, and the true voice of our family, but she also happens to be single.

Inquisitor Laric Grayson came to the party. Invited, of course. Though perhaps he was lured in curiosity about the bacon muffins as I was? a muffin? Something about that seems blasphemous, perhaps he chose to investigate? Perhaps not. Either way I do hope he had a satisfying time and a equally satisfied belly.

To my family - I've missed you all so. It was good to see you all. I love you, and it is good to see you all well and around a table once more, even if I question the viability of what appears to be Ariella's choice of seating.

We should certainly do the family dinner again soon. Perhaps I will help my sister with it's planning..though probably not.

Mae! She must have been the host lady. It was a very nice hosting. I hope many coins were raised for much soup. How they made pastry wine I do not know. Well done you!

Relationship Note on Nierzen

You, actually. You're next in line. In order to prepare you, we're going to have to acclimate you to their environment. So please, come to Deepwood Manor within the next few days. I'll hold your head under water until we think you're prepared for your pending marriage.

I jest, of course. If you find yourself wishing to know more of the differing factions and their relation to one another during that period of time? I will gladly invite you to meet with me at House Deepwood's residence in the Ward of House Grayson. We'll discuss the topic and hopefully provide you with a mixture of history, tales, and information.

Oh, yes, the Marin'alfar and the Gyre, the strongest of alliances since the likes of the Nox'alfar and Tolamar Brand.

Good gods. They're definitely not _Brand's_ Nox elves. Brand wanted very, very much to murder the fuck out of the Nox'alfar. They were not fighting with him.
