I apologize for not having written in some time now. A few months ago, Marcia decided she would rather give birth to our child somewhere further south, where it would be warmer. It was a rather spur of the moment choice, but who am I to deny her request? So we're currently in Rinme, which is also a perfect opportunity to visit with my dear sister!

I hate that we needed to resort to this, but Gerald's recent overblown courtship with that girl of his has Father so enamoured...if my wife gives me a daughter, he's likely to use it against me for all it's worth. Father could only ever view a son as a proper heir, after all.

Admitting defeat leaves a sour taste in my mouth, but it's what we must do.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm relieved.

It was a good speech, wasn't it? Our little Edalene ... seeing her out and about and so focused, it's like a weight's been lifted. Even House Cresyn seems to walk a little straighter, these past few days, in the aftermath of her declaration ... King Matthew Anshar.

I'm very proud of her.

... I think I'll speak to mother, today. There have been rumours that the new family seats will be sworn in during the Queen's birthday celebrations, have you heard?

Very interesting.

I've a mind to put Connor on the Council, in fact.

You're lucky that the Queen's appearance diffused your nonsense so completely, before I was forced to put you out.

... Prince Finlay says he'll make sure everything is fine, but ...

Oh, I'm such a baby. I'm sure no one else is having this problem! It's just me ...

W-well ... the pleasure barges all seem very well prepared for the party, don't they? Mari and I passed by the harbor, today, on our afternoon ride. They do look lovely.

I think it's fairly clear, after an entire night of exploring the new chamber ... well, we just don't have enough ... bodies. It seems simple enough, really, but we need more people to hold these into place. I think ... well, these have all been fairly introductory, haven't they? Magic, military strength, and now numbers ...

I think these are simply ensuring that we have the basic necessities to solve these chambers. I ... believe this means we can assume there will be several more rooms like this, below. This isn't going to end as soon as we'd all hoped, isn't that plain, by now?

We should give some thought as to how we are going to tell the others about this place. We'll need at least ten more just to hold these panels down, in here, and at that point ... well. You know the secret won't remain so for long, after that.

Bet you're feeling real smug about having us speed our asses here, now, eh, old man? A whole week for a ship, hah.

And if we have to wait, well~ We might as well make sure we aren't bored.

So if I said there was a secret cellar under this castle, possibly as deep as this thing is tall, filled with little puzzle chambers that need to be solved before the door to the next one opens -- would you believe me?

Tarmon has no idea what's at stake. He is simply incapable of seeing that if things continue as they are, Hasten will succeed. It may take years, yes, but they will be years during which my infant of a husband does nothing but reinforce everything Hasten has to say. Eventually, His Majesty must concede. The ... issues with Korin of late only expedite the eventuality. This makes Tarmon more than Sovereign Lord of the North; it gives him command of our armies. If the situation at the border comes to arms ...

This is not just a wedding. This will set the tone of this succession, he must be made to see that. If his first act as Sovereign Lord is to exacerbate a childish feud with Hasten now, when he is seen as a hero of the realm, beyond reproach ...

A petty child cannot command the armies of the North against an actual threat. Generations of tradition will not protect House Emeron from simple, logical necessity. Hasten's position is stronger than it has ever been, and Tarmon thinks himself invincible. Foolishness, utter idiocy.

I'll be damned if I'll simply stand by and allow my husband and my brother to conspire to steal my son's birthright. I will fight that man every day, if I must.

Damn you, Isaac. How could you? How could you?

I am not the one being irrational here. I'm not. This is his problem, and he needs to own up to it! It's called growing up, is that such an unreasonable thing to ask? Dragons!

I hope Ian does marry her, just like Inara wants. What then, Nathan??

I'm supposed to speak today. Mother told me to try to finish what I was going to say with the time I've got left. I know what I'm going to say, but... I'm going to break up as soon as i get in front of everyone. I wouldn't even care if i cried in front of everyone right now, but how can I look strong if I do that? I just know I'm going to fall apart.


I'm going to start talking about how great daddy was, and all of things that made him great, and how I really wished he was alive, and I am going to fall apart. I'm falling apart now, writing it, with no one around.

How can I say this in front of people if I can't write it down?

He's gone. He's really gone, and I have to bury him today. And everything I thought about for my future is gone. Everything I supposed to do... It's all gone as soon as he's under the ground. It's not fair. This wasn't supposed to happen!

Lydia! I am going to need your help on something, if you're willing to give it. But before I can tell you what, I'm afraid I'm going to have to swear you to secrecy. You can't tell anyone, and especially not Amelie, about this little project of mine.

But I truly would appreciate your help on this if you're willing, so if you could make me that promise ...

It still don't seem like it's that close to the wedding at all.

I wonder what it'll be like. I still ain't never seen any wedding like this. All I ever saw was just quiet country stuff, and that was such a long time ago I don't even much remember it. But Lady Chloe's talking with Lady Bunny about flowers and Lady Amaeyra's helping out with the dress arrangements and I think if it was me, I'd be right lost already. It all seems so complicated.

And now there's so many people coming into Lireth every day. It's so easy to get lost in all of them. I don't know what to do with myself half the time right now. I don't know the first thing about weddings, and I don't think Lady Chloe'd want my help, anyway. I sure wouldn't, if I was her. And Lady Bunny's so preoccupied with the wedding that I don't want to bother her none ...

It's kind of nice to have so many people here, though. It's been so quiet for such a long time, and all.

So... tea's not going to happen. Maybe not for a while. I'm assuming you've heard. I don't know how you couldn't have at this point, but I don't know what's going on out there.

You're not going to believe this! I can't even...

Darcy and a few of the other girls have been talking about Devine, how he was dragged through the hall today...Darcy begged me to ask Grandpa about it but when I went to talk to him I overheard him and Hayden arguing, something about Lucas and Torrence plotting against Devine...!

Ugh, bloody sodding hell, Fartgus! Would you please tell your mother to stop bothering me about the flowers?! I've told her about fifteen bloody times I wanted hydrangeas and black peony poppies mixed in with the marine lobelias and golden lillies. At least fifteen bloody times! It's all planned out, everything is all ready, and she still bloody well keeps trying to change it everytime I turn my sodding back on her!

Is it so awful to want my own House represented at my wedding? You don't want to offend my family, do you? They're all going to be there, too!

Dragons, it's not like they won't bloody well match -- it's black and white! It matches with everything! They may not be brilliant House colours -- let's be honest, they're rubbish House colours -- but they're mine and I want them and I'm tired of arguing about it!
