I guess it was only a matter of time before things got dangerous down there ...

Still, we don't really need this, do we? It's bad enough to begin with, juggling stuff up here with the stuff down there. Now we have to worry about someone losing their head, while they're at it?

It's just going to weigh on people, and make both a lot harder.

That must be why he looks so ...

Hey ... rough day down in puzzleton?

Poor Will. I really don't think he expected his conversation piece today to go over quite the way it did.

At first, he looked pleased to be the centre of attention for ... well, you know, for something he'd done for himself, for once. That sounds bad, doesn't it? Ah, well, can't be helped. But, haha, after everyone was talking about it, and after the fifteenth breathless girl came to ask him details about what happens if you don't go with your true love ...

Poor, poor Will.

He's really not equipped for this sort of thing.

I don't want to go to this ridiculous party.

And he doesn't want me there, either, I'm sure of it. Or rather, he does, but hardly for the pleasure of my company. No, he wants me there so he and his idiot friends can snicker up their sleeves at the Lion of Lireth with a wench's ---- chest in his face. And then they can all make smart little comments about my wife and my prowess in our marriage bed, and all conveniently forget that I've had more women than most of them combined.

Dragons, what was the damn point of all those years forcing myself to be that person. The moment I married, everyone promptly rewrote history to paint me as a repressed, stiff-necked prude. And now I get to perform that routine for their appreciation.


If I didn't relent, he'd never give it up, though. And he's so wonderfully gifted at making me seem silly and peckish while he is only trying to extend a courtesy. I would be a poor brother and he would be a pitiful victim.

I am already sick to death of him. I bear no ill will to my brother, but I am not convinced he feels the same. I often suspect he bears ill will to everyone but for Amaeyra and Isanae ... though he demeanor to his woman has ... softened. Unexpected, that.

... I have other things to worry about, truly. I suppose it proves that I'm at least half of what they will heckle me for being, that tomorrow night is almost more distressing to me than everything else I must contend with.

Might I assume that your party has not been wiped out by Koriner refugees. That would be most unfortunate.

I would appreciate a prompt response.

Are you alright? And everyone else as well? I've been so worried, ever since I first read everything. I still can't quite make sense of everything that happened.

Well, the last platoon is finally off.

I'm still not sure it was the right choice not to send a wing of pegasi or dragons -- or one of each, even. We've delayed so long already, fighting over who to send and when to send them or if we should even send anyone, which is absolutely ridiculous. If there are any survivors out there, they're going to need help as soon as possible ...

... but Harriet made some good points, and I guess this is better than the alternative might be.

Kray, honey ... you're going to keep me posted, aren't you? And be careful. It makes me nervous, having you out there. I get it, I do. I'd never ask you not to go. But there's so much weird stuff going on lately.

I wish I could just gather up everyone who matters to me and lock all the doors, you know? Well ... at least I can do that with Mal.

[Filter: Private]

Why can't I shake the feeling this is bigger than it should be?

It's Harriet, I swear. All her going on about ripple effects and momentum and how sometimes it's better to look weak than not start up a spiral. I'm thinking about everything as this big confusing web of cause and effect, and it's starting to really ...

I've thought I was ready for this. I told myself "I think I'm prepared to do war like a real Koriner, come at me!" And now I'm here, and I ... really don't know, anymore.

It's in my blood, sure, but what does that mean?

Are you all well? Ever since I saw Isanae's writing...Dragons, I do hope no one was too badly hurt in that mess.

[Filter: Private]

I suppose I shouldn't be shocked by this...I've never been encouraged to keep up with this sort of thing, but when it happens to dear friends and family...who knows what will happen from here on out. Please, Dragons, keep us safe...

Well, it seems Rinme has become quite popular within the last several days. Refugees lined up outside the manor, some even managing to barge in...how they've managed to slip past the guards I'll never know. Lord Lyndan is not amused, naturally, and neither am I. My lady wife and I came here for a vacation, she's a scant few weeks away from giving birth, and this is the absolute last thing we need right now!

Honestly, this is beyond ridiculous. Lord Lyndan assures us he plans to do something about it right away...whatever he has planned, I hope it's enough to keep any more of these grubby refugees out of our sight.

I still can't believe what William told us about this star shower! It all sounds simply incredible, doesn't it? I've always been curious about astronomy but I never knew what was true and what was simply a myth...this, however, sounds too good to be just a myth!

Colin and I will most certainly be attending, as will my mother and father. I hope as many of you as possible will decide to come as well! Though I can't imagine how anyone could pass this up...!

Well, that sure went well. Heh, it figures she aint gonna listen to me, though. We don't even know each other that well outside Tina workin' for her. And hey, love's blind. Damn if I haven't been there before, twice...when you love someone you don't wanna imagine 'em as being any less than perfect. Even if they're a creep.

I just hope she realizes before it's too late. Such a sweet girl doesn't need to be gettin' hurt.

[Filter: Public]

Well, Tina finally found a name for the cat. Sylvester. Kinda fancy name for a stray, but she says it fits him. She's so happy, now that he's got a name he's officially part of the family.

...I think I might be okay with this. The big furball's starting to grow on me a little.

All right, I think it's about time I took a turn at this. I think I see how to move, now ... Hopefully this should be the last time we have to try.

This shouldn't take long!

He's probably going to hate me for this, but I think he needs it now. The only thing is I shouldn't have put it off so long. Better rushed than never, but I'm actually going to have to work for this now. It'll be fun.

Three years today, and for what.

People keep talking about the rebels like they're brigands, like it's us carrying out these attacks. They hear what we're saying about Forna saving them, but they brush it off because somebody's attacked them under our name. The entire West is going to war. The East is talking about -- horror stories.

Keran's still alive.

I shouldn't keep coming back to that, but I do. Keran's still alive. Mera is still gone, and he's still sitting at the crown of the world, watching the entire rest of the country scurry around like ants.

We -- have to put a stop to this soon. Three years, and for what? For a ruin of a country that he's destroyed all on his own? I can't take that. I don't think any of us can take that.

... Three years.
