Jack, hello~?

I haven't seen your writing in some time! And ... and, I did want to talk to you, if you're not terribly busy! Things here at home have been so frustrating, lately, and -- and I've missed you! Quite a lot! I've been keeping an eye out for your Festival gift, I do hope it arrives soon. I've been looking forward to it so much. I won't open it early, of course, but just knowing it's here and having it in my hands, well, that would make me feel ever so much better about everything, right now. I'm sure it would.

Will you write back to me, please? I'll be waiting here! I won't be going to court today, I've told them all I wasn't feeling well. Which is true enough, but I may have exaggerated it all just a tiny bit, just so I'd have all day to talk to you!

Do you think I can't see you moping, Canti? Sigh. Well, I'd be bloody well surprised if the people in Razen couldn't see you. You've never been very bloody subtle.

[Filter: Fartgus]

You know, your whole sodding approach is completely flawed.

It reminds me of the parties I was allowed to watch from the sidelines with my nanny, as a girl.

Grandmother never let me dance, or speak, or even mingle, and I always had to wear my veil. Just another upper class little girl, watching her betters moving in their steps. Oh, how they entranced me, their laughter and smiles and the fine men on their arms. The whirl of their skirts ... the glitter of their jewels ...

I know what her purpose was. She meant to show me the life I would never have, the life a bastard would never be entitled to. She meant to remind me of my place.

What would the Lady Vashj say if she were still here, tonight?

[Filter: Karlesta, in Atsirian]

Karlesta, really.

You feel that ball between your shoulders? Keeping them lashed tightly together and not letting you move them freely?

Well, everyone here sees it, too.

You needn't be so stiff. They all know you're above them. Holding yourself so separate from their gaiety makes you appear standoffish and cold. Move among them. Laugh at their jokes, even when they aren't so very funny. Learn to ask questions.

Do you see how Adrian does it? Of course, you can't simply emulate him; he's in a submissive role. But you can learn his tricks and turn them about to match your own skills and situation.

You do yourself more harm than good, like this.

[Filter: Raezi, in Atsirian]

Saedri, it was a great shame you are not yet in Razen. The event the Queen has staged tonight for all of the campaigners in Razen and their families is exactly the sort of situation you so excel in. What a missed opportunity.

Just what is in this cordial, sugar and apples and dreams and hope for tomorrow?

[Filter: Westa, in Atsirian]

If it just me, or do you look tense? Your smile looks like someone could chip it off with a chisel! You should relax, Westa. Don't I always tell you that you need to relax?

The progression of my day has been interesting to say the least. It started with preparing for battle, in the middle there was a large one, and I come back to my tent to find that I can write to an assortment of interesting pens across Eire. I feel like I've earned this.

Ah, nephews, if you would be so good as to introduce me to all your friends? No, wait, I should!

I'm Lord Raoul of Ferselle, and I'm with my nephews as they march toward Noye. Do congratulate us, we've just won a decisive victory over Varise!

All right.

I admit, that was fairly ingenious of you. But did you really have to hit so hard? I think I'm going to have a bruise for weeks.

It's still too early- Dragons, damn it she's...

Damn those refugees, damn those reports, damn those rumors...! If anything happens to her or my child because of them Lord Lydan you promised to do something about this why haven't you-!

I've never seen her so terrified, so weak...Dragons, if anything...

...damn you, refugees. Damn you all to the deepest pit of hell.

I ought to be very grateful to that woman. Whatever else the Lady Felizia is, she's certainly an ample distraction. No one is even likely to recall how awful my showing was, there, not after that. It's all her and how bold and daring she is. And arguing, of course. Always that. Was that scene she made justified? Does her opinion have merit, oh, I do like that question. I especially enjoy how no one dares ask it too loudly. Prince Reeve holds power over them still, regardless of what they say or what one brave woman says and does.

But none of that matters, does it? What matters is what the Queen thinks of it all. It is no secret that Lady Felizia's is the correct position, in her eyes, and it was all so ...

... It is something to watch. That's certain.

It will be interesting to hear what Lady Aes thinks, at tea. I only hope that unseemly brother of hers will be absent from the manor, today, the man makes such a point of casting a shadow over anything remotely pleasant. House Cresyn is in such a powerful position; everything idiotic thing that man says or does gathers so much attention. He could prove to be a very damaging liability, in the weeks to come ...

Hm, so, I heard a little rumour that all our fine musicians are having a bit of trouble with getting that melody played perfectly, is that so~? How's all that with tuning the amhran-father gone? If you still need help, well, I've been told by reliable sources that I can carry a tune, when I put my mind to it~ Perhaps I could be of assistance?

And the timing and tempo, well, I think I could be a great help there, too~

If even half of these reports are true ...

But I knew this was coming. We all did, but I read it all from the Lord of Ferselle himself, now, didn't I? I shouldn't be surprised at all.

This is all so wrong. Why can't anyone else ever see?

[Filter: Lord Keane]


I should think, Lord Keane, that you of all people should be less than inclined to do the bidding of House Sarrca. And yet, here you are, playing directly into his hands.

All right, Lenore, let's go. I'll be by in a few minutes to pick you up, hope you got everything ready. Probably won't be able to stay out as long as I thought, neither.

That poor girl. So young. She was pretty, in her way. Just how you like them, Nicolas, is that not true? I wonder if I should take her as a warning, a reminder of what you are capable of. And she is a reminder, is she not? A parting gift. Just so, to taunt and tease me. Another girl I cannot tie to the noose around your neck.

[Filter: Public]

My apologies again to my guests for the delay in your departure. I hope you can appreciate how tense this morning has been. Your safety is of paramount importance to me.

I still cannot comprehend it.

I knew Lian was jealous. I knew Linnell was petty. I thought they would be faults that could be kept in check. And then Lian became too jealous of Father's company, and Linnell almost tore her limb from limb because of it. If Father had been more firm with us all in the beginning, if he had treated us all equally ...

Oh Grandmother, you would be aghast.

[Filter: Meghan]

I apologise for how difficult this situation has been for you in the past few weeks. I want to do something to make up for it. Perhaps we can go on an outing together. I can show you around the town. We can invite Stephanie along as well. I think it will do us good to be out of Father's way for a while.
