Caitlin, Debby, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to make it to our ride this afternoon. The two of you are welcome to go ahead without me, but some paperwork I have to deal with has come up, and I'd rather not put it off. I know the two of you will manage just fine without me there holding you up.

By the way, Debby, you've been in a very good mood lately. Josephine has told me you've been distant in lessons, but you always seem so well-behaved with me that I'm not sure I believe it. You know you can tell me if something is wrong with your lessons, don't you? I'd talk to Josephine about it straight away.

You have been doing better since you've been on as our combat mage. I hadn't expected you to feel much better about it, but, well, you look better. I ... suppose I owe you an apology for being reluctant about your choice, on that front.

I still haven't gotten much of anyone asking me why I was poking around with awkward questions, by the way. Though I've gotten my fair share of suspicious looks, and I expect those to continue. Maybe I'll hear something if I poke around even more, but for now I think they're just keeping an extremely close eye on me. I imagine you're getting roughly the same treatment?

This is ridiculous!

Every day, there are more of them. Every day, every week, it is as though they are multiplying. I have never seen the streets so rife with beggars and criminals. And all of them, every last one, Koriners. Begging for coins, robbing from vendors, making complete nuisances of themselves, and not even looking for productive work, I'm certain.

I'm going to speak to Father about them. I'll make him listen to me. Surely he knows as well as I do that this can't continue. We have to have them run out of the city. They oughtn't be allowed within our walls. And I won't rest until he does something about them.

Aubrey, just -- can you just stay in the guest quarters for a bit? Everything's kind of going crazy right now, I know, but, um, it's ... ummmm, I'm not sure how much you know. I'll explain later. Sorry!! Just stay in there, I'll come explain once things calm down.

[Filter: Leon]

Leon, Angela's going into labor. The healers are coming to look after her but she's begging me to come with her to help out and I can't really say no, and I thought you -- I thought you should probably know. Do you want me to write if everything goes okay? I can do it the minute I'm done, if that's what you want. Or I could, um. Not write. It's up to you. I just thought I needed to tell you.

Oh, geez, Destin! I'm so sorry! You and I were going out this afternoon and I didn't forget, I swear, after how I begged you to come to this stupid thing with me, that would have been awful. But I slipped out to visit Emery while Lady Justyna and Lord Michel were there to congratulate you and Maire, and he and I got talking, and you know how we get. I just completely lost track of time ...

Do you mind just coming here to get me, and we can go out together from there~? It'll add an hour or so to your day but I'm sure Maire will let you go when it's for her favourite sister. Sorry!

[Filter: Emery and Destin]

I'll be reading in the parlour and you ... do whatever you need to do, and we'll just say that we all got caught up talking together and missed this fake thing I've been blathering on about.

If you could try to ... just don't make me uncomfortable, okay? I feel bad enough about this. These games are getting too complex for me.

Oh my, it feels like such a long time since I've written in here! I hope everyone is well. Colin and I certainly are...married life has been very good to us~ Our honeymoon's been spectacular, so much that we'll be sorry to see it end...mm, but it will be nice to return to Court and see everyone again. We'll be back in a week, I hope you'll fill us in on anything exciting we may have missed~

So, er, after reading Miss Emma's entry about asking questions anytime, I thought of one I'd like to ask!

What do you love most about your home? Or where you live now even if it's not where you grew up...or where you grew up, even!

My favorite things about Megam were the temples, and the warm weather. A lot of visitors would talk about how muggy it could be, but to me it seemed...well, right. Warm, almost cozy. And the temples were absolutely beautiful.

If there was ever a time that I wished Father Eron and Sister Freya still bothered to demand reports ... ah, well. Likely they would only demand more information than I have, and the summary of the situation is sure to travel quickly. How glad they would be to know I am, as usual, in the thick of all the unpleasantness~

Certainly, this is not the welcome we'd hoped for. Karlesta stalks about like an angry cat, and I think ... sometimes, I think Melyndra is truly sorry for the Queen. The look she gets ... once, I would have believed that woman simply did not feel. I still say it was easier, laboring under that mistaken assumption. And the look the Queen had about her, when she saw us ... ah, she is so young. I think she truly thought, for a moment, that Melyndra was here to absolve her man of all wrongdoing, as she did once, so long ago. But, no. She saw nothing of this in her flames. She's said as much to me, plainly enough. I wish I were any closer to knowing where that power comes from.

And Westa and Joseph are both here. Expected, but no less ... worrisome, for it. I swear, I can feel that woman watching me. They could ruin me in an instant, if they chose, and her eyes more than any other say that the thought of doing so is never far from her mind. I'd nearly forgotten what that was like, and it is not a thing I'm glad to remember.

But what can I do? Bow and scrape and submit, as ever. Lovely~

Was that Ian I saw leaving your place just now, Inara? I mean, uh. I'm not spying or anything, I swear. The window in the kitchen just looks out across the street, and it's hard not to notice something like that. I haven't seen him in so long, I almost forgot he actually lives here, too.

It's probably not any of my business. I just -- yeah, wow. Weird. Never mind me, I'm just having one of those moments, you know how it is.

You'll be glad to know that I've made inquiries of my own, and never heard so much as a whisper of your name. Not that I doubted you.

Matthew's best defense is character based. Lady Rachael would tear Razen down to its foundations for better, and Aes with her, but so it goes. It seems almost unfair to pit the two of them against Reeve, doesn't it? So sad. I trust the evidence against him will be ... substantial.

But of you, there truly seems to be no connection. Very good.

Just what do you think you're doing, with Jason? Did Josiah put you up to that invitation? He didn't spring out from the shadows and scare the daylights out of him, did he, that's just the sort of thing the both of you would do!! And Jason has seemed very -- strange, all day, and I only just now heard that you'd invited him, and -- oohh!! Please tell me it wasn't like that!

He never does anything without a good reason. And he has a good reason for this, several good reasons, if I've heard right. This is what he's supposed to do, isn't it? Keep Edalene safe. Keep watch for things exactly like this. It's what he's good at, why should I be surprised that he continues to be good at it.

I just keep thinking ... everything we talked about, before. The way his eyes got, near the end, when ... I told him there wasn't anything, didn't I? There was nothing he could do. That this was going to happen and he'd better just resign himself to it all, like I did. There's always something, he said, looking all fucking crazy, like a hyena in a trap. ... Why can't I get that out of my head?

[Filter: Aes, in Atsirian]

Hey ...

Is there anything I can do?

All of this is so difficult to believe. A few days ago, the people, and Razen itself were brimming with excitement, and now ... who could have imagined this? The commons are still confused. Once they understand the full meaning of what has happened, I fear for the mood of this city. Everyone who does know is either dour or angry.

Lillithe will look to me for judgement. She will be representing our stand on the matter, and already she has been courted by both sides making their case. I would prefer to interpret the evidence for myself. So much hinges on making the correct decision. Not only is a man being judged to death for treason, but this man will have been King Consort. A man, it seems, the Queen is willing to defend.

And there was a time the Prince was wholly convinced someone was plotting against his sister. He pursued the wrong man.

Review time. Great. So, Liam, how much progress have you made? Well, supervisory overlord, I have managed to devise a rune that will put a mouse to stasis for around five minutes at best. And I've yet to figure out what script I'll have to add to sustain it. Funny how the standard ones don't work, huh? And then I'll have to explain how it's different to putting someone to sleep for the thousandth time.

That will sound so impressive. Desmund will tell me about how no one's even managed past a minute before, but I suspect he's telling me that so I'll feel better.

[Filter: Erin ; Kilian]

So, haven't heard from you in a while. You're not dead, are you? That would be bad.
