This is not working at all.

I think we may have completely misunderstood how to go about working on this puzzle. Attempting to move the fire with magic is not working. I believe we're going to need an alternative way to move the fire. Something more physical, I think, because it doesn't look like magic is going to work on this one.

Keane is going to ask, isn't he? It's his precious Relette, after all. Of course he'll ask. And I'll have to say no. Maybe I would have anyway. Why do I care what happens to her anyway? She's been crazy for years, really crazy this time. She stabbed me.

I don't care what happens to her.

I don't.

I almost wish Dad hadn't made me come home, too.

It's not that I don't want to be here, it's just -- It's just Angela, and Ash, and ... and everytime Dad or Angela even mention Leon, everything gets so ...

Hey ...

Do you maybe want to go riding or something? I need to get away from here for a little while. I know that's silly since we just got home, but ...

I'm so tired of hearing about this ridiculous baby. Yes, yes, I'm very happy, yes, no one can even imagine how excited I am, no, we haven't discussed names yet. I don't want to discuss names.

At least Father is loosening his grip on me a little as things move on. Yes, Father, I'll go home and spend time with Maire straightaway. Of course!

What you don't know can't hurt you.

[Filter: Public]

So! Maire! Everyone's been asking me if we've discussed names yet, and I can barely even remember how long into your pregnancy we discussed Violet's name, so I have no idea if it's too soon. Is it too soon? I need your expert opinion on this. Perhaps we should discuss names right now, even!

I don't know. Maybe she is just trying to make good. It's so awkward though. It's so hard to even try to forget it happened, and that she helped. At least Lucas and Torrence are finally gone. I know I should be able to forgive her. It's the right thing to do, but why does it have to be so hard?

You guys really are leaving then? If you're trying to rent out Tallys' place, then it has to be pretty official, right?

It's been really crazy in Razen since everyone started trying to win a council seat. It's way more busy than it was last time too, which I guess make sense with there being so many more seats that need filled. I think it's really exciting! Everyone is talking about it and who they think would be a good councilor and who wouldn't.

I keep expecting to hear something about my brother but I haven't yet. Maybe that means he isn't campaigning well enough. I should tell him that. Maybe he'll even let me help!

This was all ... so much easier when I didn't have to pretend ... when it was expected of me to grieve for him ... but it ... it hasn't been long enough. Smiling and acting like I'm okay ... it's so difficult, and it takes so much out of me. I don't know how I can keep going on like --

I just ... I know that I have to, though. I need to get back into the Council. I need to make sure I can make a difference ... and now that Robert is running for a Council position as well, I'll really need to make sure I can get into her good graces. There are so many people running ... it's going to be difficult.

But ... to keep King Matthew Anshar's name alive. To keep his memory alive, among so many other things I could do ... oh Matthew, you didn't deserve such a horrible ending ... I miss you so much. You'll never, ever be forgotten.

[Filter: Public]

So~ um ... I'd been wondering if anyone would be willing to go out for a nice dinner with me, sometime? It's been feeling awfully stuffy at home, lately.

Oh, and Edalene, I was hoping you could possibly make some time for me, as well? ♥

Hm ... I think Amelie was right ... I mean, it seemed like it would be almost impossible to do as she said I should ... to just ignore my mother, to do as I pleased ... until she finally let me live my life the way I wanted. But the more I tried, the more it started to help.

I would hardly do anything bad, but I mean ... I do need to be able to do some of the things I enjoy doing instead of the things mother wants me to do. She can't possibly make me do these things forever, can she?

I think that as there are more gatherings and more friends ... I can just spend more and more time at Court. It's been so much more enjoyable.

I really do hope that she enjoys her gift ... I did try.

Oh, well ... if I don't leave now, I'm going to be late to the party.

Ooh ... I can't believe I completely lost track of time like this ...! I was supposed to buy all of the presents for my family already ...! It's not going to get to them in time for the Festival if I don't get it all right now. I don't even know what I'm going to get for them all, yet ... and I still need to find out about hiring a messenger to deliver it to them as soon as possible.

I know that Zach's been so busy with his soldiers lately that I would feel just horrible asking him to come out to the markets with me to look for gifts. He doesn't have time for that ...

Hm ... maybe --

It was actually really fun hanging out with Daisy ... I mean, all of those soldiers that she introduced me to, and the drinking and talking, heh. It was really funny how much louder and louder everyone got as the night wore on. Man, it would be so great to be a part of the military ... to have all those friends to spar with and drink with.

I really hope that I can make it in their ranks somehow ... even if I can't get Leo to go in there with me ... but, I mean, who wouldn't want a dragon working for them, too, right?

Maybe someday ... hopefully ...

Uhh ... I know things have been a little bit uh ... not good for you, lately, but I was wondering if there's anything I could do to make you feel better, at all? I mean, it's really the least I could do.

Oh my goodness, this is all so perfect! Did everyone see Amie's face, when the lights went up? And when the Prince and Princess themselves led the dances, ohh, Amelie, I honestly thought for a minute that you would faint! You came close, didn't you?

Josiah, I think that from now on, you should go ahead and concede planning this party to Philip every year!

Hello, dear~ ♥

I realize you must be busy, now, so I'll be brief~ I can't read or write more than a few words in Atsirian, to my shame, and so I've only just recently heard from Jasmine what's happened, there. I just wanted to write you to say that you're in my thoughts. I wish that I could have met your husband myself. Anyone that you chose to be King, well, he must have been quite a man. I'll visit and pay my respects one day, I promise you~

I hope that you are doing well, considering the circumstances, and I wish you luck in all you've planned, going forward.

My, with all of the things going on around here, I had forgotten to tell you about what happened in Atsiria on the Queen's birthday, dear.

She wrote to everyone in Atsirian, of course, and said she was feeling better. Hm, well ... I think it was simply more of a public announcement, to declare the person she was to wed as being the late King Matthew Anshar. Certainly a surprising declaration, considering, hm ...?

Well, I think it was a good thing that she did that.

Hm, she also spoke of the people who declared intent to run for office. I think the Queen is doing a fine job of it all, to be honest. It does seem like an ideal moment for her to move on and show her strength, doesn't it?

Uncle Franz seems to agree with the state of the vineyard so far. At least, he is not unhappy, not to me. Then again, Matthias is not very pleased that he has not already returned to Diarnay. I thought Matthias was a little nervous about having his father here, but ... well, I think I may have been more nervous than he was.

I hope I have done well as a hostess. I have never been in charge of receiving a visitor before. Uncle Franz has not complained, so I suppose I have done a satisfactory job so far.

I still catch that boy looking at me now and then...he hasn't approached me since that day, which is good. I suppose as long as he keeps his distance, I'm not that uncomfortable with him being there. And he's not there every time I am, at least...

He's rather handsome, though, for a stable boy. I can't help noticing him either, and I know I shouldn't. He's only a stable boy, and his behavior that day was inappropriate...and yet...

Oh, the Festival of Leaves is coming in just over a month ...! I need to get my gift shopping done, I always say that I'm going to do it early, but there's always something I forget and need to buy at the last minute ... But this year, I'm going to be organised! I have to buy gifts for Mathilda and Max around now too, just to make sure they get their presents in time for the Festival ...!

This time of the year is always so wonderful, isn't it ...? Everyone's so excited, and the shops and the markets get their best wares out. It's too bad that we don't have leaves changing colour and falling from the trees. I saw this painting once, of trees lined along a road, and their leaves were all different kinds of reds and oranges and yellows and oh, it looked so beautiful. I really wish I could see that for myself one day ...

Our savior, Forna. It all seems so difficult to believe at first, how could the land of a fallen House save anyone? What could possibly be there? I'm sorely tempted to ask Lord Lyndan if perhaps we should send scouts after all...but that brings us back to the question of what would they be searching for in the first place. No one seems to know.

Perhaps this is something we must simply wait to learn more about.

Another message for the messenger, really? Not very fucking subtle, whoever you are. And I know you're on here. Who is it, then? Who the fuck is it that you actually think is involved in your shit, because I can tell you right now, I know my people, and you're wrong. You're fucking wrong and you need to leave us the fuck alone!
