Now, Lady Amaeyra, I must say it is very unkind of your brother to keep you cooped up in this manor, like a bird in a cage. Why, it hardly even seems so long ago that we were courting, does it not? I remember it all so very clearly.

You must be so dreadfully lonely, still alone as you are. Surely I might be able to do something to help relieve that?

The scouts are coming back with reports. There's apparently a Varise force bearing down on us. They should be here in a couple of hours, if they keep speed. Mostly just normal nights, a few dragons mixed in.

Nothing to be worried about.

I hope you're fucking ready, here. Let me down and I might send you back to rot in the dungeon. I'm going to go make sure the men are in fighting moods.

Oh ...

Oh, I do hope whatever's going on isn't serious ... Lady Eliza seems so busy, and I don't want to ask her. All the people moving about ...

I think Father knows what's going on, as well, but he won't tell me! Nobody will tell me when I ask! And I can hardly bother Lady Eliza, like I just said! My lord, I don't suppose you know what the problem is?

Oh, I just wish we were on our way, so we wouldn't have to think about all of this anymore ...

Well, so far, it seems like mostly just what I told you. Abandoned villages with a few terrified refugees left, too stubborn or too afraid to pack up their homes and leave. They all talk about the same rumors we've already heard. Walking dead, Forna as a safe haven, all of that. There are whole trails of footprints leading off from the villages, where the snow is old enough to show it ...

It's looking like those odd reports I got were mostly exaggerated. I might have expected as much, honestly, people are just jumpy right now with such odd stories.

I haven't heard a peep from you, though. Is everything all right? I half expected you to write to me the instant I flew off.

I didn't think it'd be this hard...! They're counting on us, counting on me and if I can't get it right...!

[Filter: Franelcrew]

Ah, well...we have it working, but it's not perfect yet. For some reason we can't seem to get the tone exactly right, and we've tried many times. Every time I think we've got it right, it's...not.

Sister, a word of caution from someone who only wants the very best for you:

People are beginning to notice how you're favoring Sir Firuz, tonight. Your husband among them. And your cheeks are looking rather ... flushed, shall we say? At this rate, you'll have to excuse yourself before the party is even half through.

Everyone is just going to die when you see my dress for tonight's party. Oh, everyone here is coming, aren't you? It's going to be such an amazing campaign dinner. I so want everyone there~ The ballroom is going to be packed to full!

I hope the rest of the people still intending to campaign get to Razen soon. I can barely keep track of everyone here so far! I should start sending the ones I don't like at all home, so we have some room!

[Filter: Joseph, in Atsirian]

I need your help tonight. Ellisae Eshene ... she barely seemed like she heard me, when I asked her, so ... I'll need twice as much of you as usual, I suppose.

... the party Sunday night was wonderful, Daisy.

I keep thinking about it, trying to find out how to really express how much I ... how nice it was. I -- I really appreciate all the work that you put into it. I really felt I could tell that you worked hard, and, er, that meant a lot to me. No matter how hard Miss Inara tried to ruin it.

I think that's the first birthday I've had actually in the country that Ian hasn't managed to spoil for me. And So ... thank you.

I can't even remember being so ... miserable.

Fartgus and Chloe are married, now. It doesn't matter how many times I tell myself that I've accepted that and come to peace with it, it still hurts so very awful every time I think very hard about it. I saw him set that crown on her head, and ... and I think it might have hurt even worse than I was afraid it would. I didn't think that was possible, but it did.

He's lost to me forever, now. Oh, Diary, I know that there was never really a chance. Not since he started courting Chloe. And ... even before that, I was always ...

He never would have noticed me, if not for her. He says that he favours me over my sisters, but he must be simply being nice. What reason would anyone ever have to favour me?

They even act married. I suppose I hoped she'd keep acting like she hasn't a care for him, because that was always easier, but I can't help but see them as man and wife every time I look at them. It's awful. It's just awful.

What's worse is that Lord Glenn doesn't even seem to remember me. I truly felt as if we had a connection when he was in Emeron, and now it's as if he doesn't know I exist. What happened? Did he forget all of the conversations we had? That time I dropped my handkerchief, and he bent to retrieve it for me? It's as if those things never happened.

Even Lord Alexander is back in Emeron. I haven't heard from him at all since we left. In fact, he didn't even notice when we were set upon on the road ...

And every time I try to get away from my own immediate problems, insurmountable as they are, I keep remembering Father ... I miss him. It seems strange that I should, because he surely never paid a lick of attention to anyone but Friska or Tarmon, but I do. I miss his steady hand, how he could control a situation with his eyes. Tarmon was Lord of Emeron, Sovereign of the North ... it's a laughingstock. It's worse than I ever could have imagined. The way that he looks at Lady Amaeyra, with his wife and son in the very same room ... it's appalling.

And ... so much else. The situation with Korin, and poor, poor Benedette, and ...

I try to be pleasant, I do. I really do enjoy when Friska and I talk, lately. She's right ... Sir Austin is very handsome, and he did save us from those awful refugees along the road. I just ...

It's all so awful. Everything.

[Filter: Public]

Has ... has anyone else heard the awful rumours from back home? I've heard that refugees smashed through windows in the mansion district, and went looting all night. I heard that there was furniture broken and jewels missing and that one man hasn't found his daughter yet.

I wish we knew what was going on. We did leave the city without a guiding hand ...

Wow...! This is all so exciting, so grand! I can't remember the last time I was at a party like this...or the last time I've seen so many people in one place! It's as if all of Razen...no, all of Atsiria decided to come! Well, perhaps that's a bit of an exaggeration but it certainly feels like it!

Arisa and Tiana are looking lovely tonight as well, and Bryton has never looked more handsome~ I just may need to be selfish and insist he stay by my side all night, it's been much too long since we've had any time alone together!

Well, Flynn and I went out to dinner last night~

It was nice to actually have a night to myself, sort of. He took me to a nice Dentorian place downtown. Nothing too pricey, but that's okay, I don't exactly expect to get the tour of the noble quarter every time I go on a date~ Maybe next time.

He's cute, though. And funny. I like a guy who can make me laugh~

Wow, all right, so. That.

That was something.

I think I can see why mother is always complaining about that woman! And her whole damned enterprise! What the hell! She must think she's really something, eh? She should know better than to antagonize Reeve that way, I'll bet she's going to regret that.

I can't believe that just happened. I think mother might actually start spitting fire, careful.

Everybody in the market's been talking about all sorts of stuff lately.

I went down to see the tailor today to, um, arrange for some Festival gifts. I guess that's okay to say, it's not like I'm saying who they're for or nothing, right? Anyway everybody there was all talking about some poor girl who got, um ...

Who got taken advantage of, I guess. Nobody said by who but everyone was talking about how it had to be some rich boy or a merchant's son or something ...

Anyway, I think some of the people were refugees, and they were right fit to be tied about it. They glared daggers at me when I was walking away. I -- um, I don't think they knew who I was, I'm still so new in Lireth and all that a lot of people don't recognize me on sight. But they for sure knew I was at least rich, coming out of a shop like that dressed like I was ... they knew I was somebody they didn't want to see there, that's all.

It's going to be so hard taking care of Festival stuff if this gets any worse. I think I'm going to take a guard down with me, next time I go into town.

I hate this. She's leaving in less than a month, and then I'll be left here alone again. I can't do this without her. I can't. She's the only one who cared about me when everyone else thought I was someone I wasn't. She's the only one who I've ever been able to just be myself and I still can't

This is the biggest party I've been to in a long time. Everyone is dancing and drinking and having fun. All the people campaigning for a seat are really busy too. Every time I see Dairanne she is busy talking to someone else. I don't think she's spent more than a few minutes with anyone! Mother and William are the same way, but I'm still made at William. He hasn't stopped being a big jerk.

You put together a really great event, Queen Edalene!

But it all has to be perfect. And what if he does think poorly of me?

I -- need advice. I need someone to look at my plans and tell me that he'll like them. Just to put me at ease. I --

Not yet. I need to -- I need to change a few things first, that's all. Then I'll have someone look at it.
