This is un-fucking-acceptable. This is bullshit! No, you fat fucks, you didn't get here fast enough with this news. I don't fucking care that you had to drag yourself through hell. We needed this news immediately. I cannot fucking believe this. I seriously cannot fucking believe this.

Which ever one of you fucks just burned down my fucking home city, I'm not just hoping you're going to rot. I'm going to make fucking sure you rot you cocksucking shitcunt. Do you have any idea who you're dealing with? Do you have any idea what the fuck you've just done. Dragons fuck. You don't fucking burn down a Rayla ally, and fucking get to live with yourself. We're going to ram so many armies up your ass that you're going to be spitting out spears. We're going to nail you to a post, and wait for you to fucking die. It's going to be slow. It's going to be so fucking slow.

Dragons fuck, why? We're not even at war you fucking cocksucker, wherever the fuck you are! We weren't until today! You can be damn fucking sure we are now.

Just wait you fuck, we're going to fucking come for you. I hope you fucking rot.

Keane wrote... I wish I'd had my journal because now I'm really in a mess... Uh... I'm committed now. There's no real way out of this on my own.... I -- yeah, I'll ask her about it. I'll see what she wants to do since she's my liege... Dragons.

Okay, two things.

Apparently Noye's ... gone. Varise is garrisoning it, setting up a blockade on the trade route, and settling down for a siege. I know it's crazy, but it's real. Jessica has been writing me about it, it's crazy. So she's alive, and She's agreed that keeping Coliya here is best, it might make Sylea reconsider its moves against Varise. So. Yeah.

Second thing ... apparently there are some rumors about us flying a little bit eastward, and I thought I'd ask you if you knew anything about them. They might be some of your men, or something, I don't know ...

They finally gave me my journal back, and we've got a problem. Relette's been wounded, but she's still alive. I haven't seen her injury, but she says it's bad.... She has her journal back too. You need to talk to her. You need to tell her to fight. She isn't going to fight to live, Keane! You need to tell her to!

Just ...

Just like Isanae said. I'll just write it, and then it'll be written, and ... then it'll be done. Just like that. How hard can that be?

[Filter: Benedette]

... Dette ...

Father ... died, recently. It was very sudden and unexpected. He ... he was killed, actually. Mother didn't tell us girls anything more than that, but Tarmon's said some awful things, and ... oh, I don't know.

We buried him next week, and Mother had all of us say some words at the memorial service, and, abd ...

I needed to tell you. I'm sorry I couldn't do it better. Or sooner. I'm so sorry, Benedette. I'm so sorry.

Or should I be calling you "Eshene," now, big sister~? Ethne Eshene, sitter for House Karnach on the Jewel's Council! Ooh, how exciting! You're all big and important!

Anyway! I think I managed to humiliate our poor cousin Reeve terribly. It was the weirdest damned thing! Remember how I told Helene I'd arrange dragons to be sent to Kavan for her and Mahaesa?

I am so tired of hearing about how perfect for one another Clarissa and Ian are!

It's -- it's ridiculous! Maybe he's just being generous! Maybe they're just friends! Maybe he just feels somehow responsible for her now that he's offered his help! Maybe he just likes blueprinting! Maybe he's just taunting her. How would I know? I barely know anything about him, no matter how long we travelled together. He kept to himself, aside from his little japes. He minded his own business.

Can't we do the same?

And even if Inara is right. Even if Clarissa does flutter her eyelashes and he does smile down at her, why does she possibly think that I have any inclination to "fix them up?"

The last thing the world needs is one more miserable man pretending to be happy with a woman he doesn't love and a son that isn't his.

I don't want to help him win her over. I want to warn him -- to get the hell out while he can.

Hm, well.

We've all gotten a good look at this new floor, now. I suppose we can conclude, unfortunately, that there are going to be a great deal of these little puzzles between now and the time we reach the bottom. I think it's fair to assume, actually, that the White Knite goes as far down as it does up ... a sobering though, that, hm.

I don't even know where to start with this new one. All the fire would imply magic, though, and, speaking for myself, I can't even remember what the rune for "manifest" looks like -- and those of you who know anything of magic knows just how dire that is~ If you asked me to cast an actual spell, I think I'd just gape and then fall over, haa~

Should we resume this tomorrow, after a hot bath? Or the next day, even, the whole lot of us buried down here under the castle must have set some tongues to wagging, don't you think~?

Nothing's changed, I should've never told Symeon, I knew he wouldn't believe me. What if he's angry? He and Lian are so close, for me to talk like that about her to him...!

I just should've kept quiet. Telling him didn't do anything and maybe it's what I deserve for taking all his attention away from her...and you two as well.

I'm ... curious, I must admit.

Has anyone else been hearing these rumors about Forna? It seems like news keeps coming into Veirnan daily. "Forna will save you," "Forna is safe," "only Forna can protect you."

I haven't been able to make heads or tails of it, myself. It all seems like such hearsay, and considering what other rumors are circling the East, well. I think my skepticism likely goes without saying.

Still, it couldn't hurt to hear what other people make of this.

All right, well. I may be horribly sore, but I am rested, and ready to go have a look at that next puzzle of ours, if anyone else would like to come with me. Keagan, Lord Lawrence, Nessa, I assumed all three of you would want to come down to see what was going on with it, isn't that true?

Unless, of course, we'd prefer to wait until tomorrow. I haven't heard any gossip circling about where we all vanished to yesterday, but, ah, well, no one really gossips in the presence of a Kilian, I'm afraid!

What do you all say? I imagine this should be fairly simple, once we get down there. It shouldn't take long.

She just might get away with this.

... No, she can't, I won't allow it. She has caused such needless hurt, all to spite Stephanie, and us, and it cannot continue. Father has to be convinced. There has to be something that will make him reconsider.

[Filter: Linnell]

I think we need evidence. It's clear that Father will not believe Stephanie unless there is undeniable proof.

If I did do this, and I'm not even saying I will, because obviously I won't, because -- because. But if I did ...

I could stop looking for excuses to stay here. Mother would stop complaining about me entirely. Reeve wouldn't be able to lock himself up and pretend he's too busy to see me, because I'd be on the fucking Council, while he's not! Hell, I could lock myself up and pretend to be too busy to see him, see how well he likes it. That would be fun.

And you know, everyone would expect me to just do whatever the fuck Reeve says. It wouldn't be hard. He'd deal with all the hard stuff. And actually, you know, how fucking hard can it be, when Aes sat her ass down on that thing for years and years and Dalphora didn't collapse, did it? Well ... Not because of anything Aes did, anyway. And there's Ethne. ... That's probably not a good thing. She'd try to do the same thing. She'd try to talk me out of helping Reeve, for sure.

But none of it matters! Edalene would never put me on the Council. She's learning how to play this game, and I don't want to learn, so why should I even try? Because Reeve was desperate enough to ask? If that's really all it takes, damn, I'm even more pathetic than he is, right now.

Well, since apparently I have an audience on this thing now, I feel even less guilty about bitching since now there's someone that has to listen to me! Sucks to be you, strange writing in my journal.

So, anyway, show of hands if you think Old High Korin is completely worthless? Or even any form of Korin, who the hell still speaks it here? Just give me Trade and call it good. I mean, really, does [Korin] asshole [Trade] sound quite as good and hard as "asshole"? No, it doesn't, and if you think otherwise you can fuck right off.

Anyway, sure, just what I needed to open up this book to see, more Forna talk. Wasn't tired enough of all the notes posted around the city! Lots of empty platitudes about wrath and vengeance without any action whatsoever, how very Korin of them. I'm shedding a tear and singing the anthem as we speak.
