I've finally gotten word..

Nothing lasts forever, after all... it is not as if I can truly stay in one place forever. My feet do ever so enjoy wandering, so~

The moon festival is ... soon.

Siblings, lovers? I do wonder... ahaha.

Goddesses, Dragons. Light, Dark, fire, whatever.

What is really going on here?

... I am glad they are safe. Really kind of starting to hate this palace, but hell, we'll likely start missing it soon enough. Suppose there really isn't much else to do but go along with it, but ...

... It was what needed to be done. It's better to have him ... this way, than dead. Anyone would agree. It's quite plain, isn't it?

And if I cannot see him ...

Hn. What use is there, to stay? If he will not ...

Time, of course. Perhaps it's best to have a distraction, in the meantime. The Prophet, they say. ...

The only thing that keeps me here is that leaving is exactly what Mydra wants. Petty, perhaps, but there you have it. Julian cannot ... Time, I suppose, is what it always comes back to. I wouldn't want to make things worse.

Worrying about him won't do anything, will it? It's not as if we can go visit him anymore. So what use is there in staying?

Besides, Julian needs some time to think about everything that has happened. Still, I can't help but worry.. it was his own brother. And I'm sure that's not the only thing that's been bothering him. After all, he is always the last one to find out about anything, really. He had the right to be angry. Still.

9, April

Hn. Political strife in Kanemoria, political strife in Atsiria. It is almost a pity that I am not a politician. That would be too binding a tie, I fear.

Yet here we are, relatively comfortable. It is the rain season, plenty of work is ready for the taking.

Even with the celebrating, you do seem to be terribly quiet, boy.

It certainly is hm, a fair bit quieter. In some ways.

In others, not so much. Is there truly a need to feed the flames further? The quarreling solves nothing. Glenn is lacking a certain measure of self-control, father, even less so than Byron had. Do you even know what you are fighting for anymore, other than long years of pride? Dragons.

There is no need to be patronizing, Connie. I am quite aware of how you feel.

My, but this is a rather outrageous request, is it not? Even of Rayla... hn. A curious matter, all told.

Of course, this is Rayla. If the ruling territory could not supply a ... granted, those houses are coming to us because their children, their heirs happened to be with the Taerin army. They are sure to send word eventually. They didn't get pulled down, but they might as well have.

So the council decided to overrule her, and yet, in the end... of course, that will only give rise to more worshippers of these supposed Goddesses.

It is not my concern. My sisters can do what they will. It is not as if they listen to me, after all. And why should they, when their only brother cannot even seem to get married on his own.

Why would they listen to such a man.

It feels odd to still use these ... in such a manner. However, I was looking at the sky today and there does not seem to be a cloud in sight.

I wonder how long I will have to wait for an apology. I've been arrested for a crime everyone who knows me says I could not have possibly committed, I've been accused of harbouring ridiculous ambitions, I've been made to look like a criminal, a murderer, I could have died with that deed against my name. Perhaps they need the time to digest that the real murderer was their closest advisor, rather than the foreigners, but they will have to forgive me for not feeling particularly sympathetic. Better men address others' affairs before tending to their own. Of course, I should not expect better from conniving liar who wanted me dead and a weak, cowardly, blind girl.

The longer I wait, the worse they look.

Perhaps the only good to have come out of this mess was the display of ... support. They may have their reasons for joining us, but, for the most part, they genuinely wish the best for us. ... This may be the closest thing to what I had before. The new Franel. Hah. I do not know how I won that loyalty. And now I have rely on the ... assistance of a woman who speaks in riddles and goddesses. Who calls me a "chosen one" who can open a "door".

Why is she familiar to me.

I am aware of my own lapses in judgement. I do not need them paraded before me, when there are matters of much greater importance to attend to. You are the King. You must see to your country before your own personal tragedies. Though I am surprised you consider Tristel's loss such a thing. To be honest, I find it relieving. He was an embarassment, a disgrace, and now a traitor, as well. Good riddance to garbage.

And Julian. I cannot decided whether it is more irritating or interesting. Though I suspect the former will prevail once the novelty wears off. If his resolve should last so long.

I suppose it is better than what we all expected. In its own way.

[Filter: Julian]

If you intend to play this game, I hope you understand at least that you have a great deal to learn. That people listen when you speak is certainly a start, but it is only that. Keep also in mind that impulse has its place, but only a novice relies upon it. I would not rely overmuch on your underdeveloped instincts.

Keep in mind as well that regardless of what you may believe, or currently wish to believe, I am on your side. As is Fayre. As are all of my agents, to the best of my knowledge, though I do not intend to provide you a master list. Even I do not work without my share of allies and confidants. I would ask you to think on that, long and hard, before you pursue this further.

You may not like me, but you will learn from me, or you will fail. I promise you that.

And to think all this time he seemed like such a harmless weirdo. Dragons, his own brother...still, it'd be going a little far to say he deserved to die. Maybe.

One thing's for sure, though, Prince Julian's one hell of a strong person, to put up with all this.

Mmm... but I do wonder. Was this in fact meant to happen, or was it a convienence, a twist of fate, it is ever so hard to tell, when events can be as easily created and taken advantage of~ and twisted~

And yet the longer we remain here in this place... ah, what is it, that is supposed to occur, truly...? I wonder.

Of course, with all of this talk~ aha, my, but she is an alarming one, is she not~? And the little girl with her... she must be the one who was writing, before... I have been ever so preoccupuied and not paying as much attention to these books as I could be, perhaps~


For some reason I do not feel as happy as I should ... it is truly ... it is an overwhelming relief, I must admit, but all of these factors... they do not sit easily with me, not at all. I do hope, in the future, they will be less willing to... to give up. ... Perhaps that is it. Haa.

Of course, it is not as if I can talk to my own husband about such things~ mmm, and there truly is no one else, is there.

No one at all.

I wish she'd talk to me more.

Okay, so


Jayne lost her journal. So she won't be writing for a bit. But that's okay because she's cooler than any of you anyway so she doesn't need to talk to you.

Hmm... I wonder if this will work. It seems like such a simple answer to what would be a very difficult task to construct. These magic journals sure are interesting! I wonder if anyone can read this. The lady might have been sending me on a wild goose chase and that would only make me look silly. If they respond then I know she was lying but maybe they won't respond even though they can read it and just laugh at me anyway! What a terrible problem! Maybe if I make part of it not filtered then someone could respond and I could ask them if they see anything else I wrote but I've already started writing. The opposite of private is public so I could try that but what if private doesn't work either? Very interesting indeed.

There is only one way to find out. I will test this like a true scientific experiment!
