Fuck me. Why did I think this was a good idea at all?

[Filter: Franelcrew, excluding Gebann]

I decided to probe into this maze, and see if I could get it solved as fast as the other one was. I was smart, I brought some things to mark my way. At least I thought I was smart at first. I got going, always turning left, but I decided about ten minutes ago that I should head back. I just got to a marker by a dead end that didn't exist when I came through at first. I did everything you're supposed to do in a maze, but this thing still managed to beat me. Now I'm worried that the strange noises in the background are a sign of something bad.

Do you guys out there want to start yelling?

I don't know what to get anybody for Festival this year.

Maybe it's just that I'm tired, but every time I think about it, I just draw a complete blank. It doesn't matter if it's Dad, or Angela, or Ash, I just can't get my head on straight and come up with something for any of them. ... You too, Aubrey, I guess. It's not on purpose, I promise.

I have something for Leon, though. Which is ... probably dumb, since I don't know when Leon will even be home again. But I still have it anyway. It just kind of caught my eye in the market ...

Would you tell Maire I'm going to be out late shopping for her, so she shouldn't come looking for me? I am going to be shopping, by the way, so you won't be lying! Completely. Not lying completely! I just have to make a stop by Emery's on the way back.

By the way, how did Edalene respond to your information? I have a thought that might help move that along some more, if you're willing to pursue it.

We have a problem right now, and it's pretty big. They still can't fix the walls, but I think they've made sure getting to those walls... Well, it's going to be a lot harder now. And the ships in the harbor are only going to make it worse.

If we were in Emeron, this sort of nonsense would not be permitted! I would take care of it myself, in fact!

I ought to write to the crown and let them know what a state Lireth is in, with its riots and screaming refugees. I am sure they would appreciate being informed of the lawlessness here.

All right, I'm thinking I'm about ready to get out of this bed and not lay back down for a few Dragonsdamned months. Apologies in advance, Nessa, I just can't stand to stay put any longer.

Since I don't think I can be any help down below this week, from what I understand, I'm thinking I'm going to go do Festival shopping. Considering how laid up I've been, I'm pretty damned behind.

Figure since last time a group thing worked pretty well, I'd ask who all needed to go. If you're headed below today, don't stress it, I figure I'm going to be making a few trips.

My lady, I feel as though I may have offended you after my long absence from these pages. If this is the case, I am terribly sorry. I got caught up in trying to piece together what is going on with my countrymen and in the end, I lost track of time.

I have read of the troubles in Lireth, I do so hope that you have not gotten caught up in the situation there. It grieves me to know that anything unpleasant was happening in your life.

I do hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me, though I cannot even dare to believe that you will.

On top of everything else, now he's here too. Is this the journal's idea of a joke? If so, it's the worst one since Michelle of Fryda.

Mother ... on days like these, I cannot find the words for how much I despise you.

Does anyone know who that is, writing about the heirs to Forna and Sarrca? It sounds like us but I don't recognize the writing. Are the rest of you still using those fake personas? I barely even remember mine anymore ...

This could be connected with the rumours in the East.

It feels so good to finally be finished shopping. I do hope Marias likes his gift...I think this is the first time I've ever gotten him something for the Festival. I hope the gloves don't seem...well, considering his poor hands. Perhaps I did have that in mind when I bought them, but the color, the material...they'll do him good in the winter.

Why am I nervous? I'm buying a gift for a friend, I shouldn't be

Mm. I'm sure he'll like them. And everyone else will like their gifts...I'm glad I got the ones for Lady Audrina and her family so early, and sent them at the beginning of the month. They should arrive in plenty of time.

Ah, Charles. No matter how old he gets he'll always act like an excited child during Festival season! Though I can hardly blame him, I'm excited too. Wondering what I'll be getting, hoping everyone likes what I got for them...and Father is doing so much better, Aria says with any luck he'll be back on his feet in time for the Festival! I certainly hope he will be!

I hate this ... I freaking hate how everyone still looks at me like I'm some little kid ... or like I'm too poor to do anything or too something to be anything that I want to be or do or whatever.

Why is it so hard to find a job? Why is it so hard to go join the military and train with my dragon? Don't they want a dragon? Why does everyone look at me like ... like --

Screw it, I'll try again tomorrow. I just want to ... to go and get drunk!

You know what? I'm going to go drink until I pass out! Who wants to join me? Any takers?

And don't say I'm too young to be doing this, either ...

All right, I think we've come up with a better plan for how to approach this thing.

Since Dagda got lost when he was in there on his own, it's probably better if we go into the maze in groups. At least have someone with you so you're lot alone, but a bigger group is probably better. Er, and bring water; it's very large and you're likely to be in there for a while ...

Does that make sense to everyone?

Hm ... there's definitely something wrong with their adviser ... it makes no sense that he would keep riling them up in this Nasen conflict as he is. An advisers part in anything is to look for a solution to better benefit the people and the House ... not to encourage war and chaos. War should be the last possible solution to such a conflict. It doesn't seem as if both parties have even tried for a negotiation or a treaty ... how can they not see the possibility of a third party being involved?

Can't they see that they would be stronger together than at each others throats ...? More unnecessary violence, and for what? This ... Daren has a lot to do with this rash behaviour ... especially from Simon.

[Filter: Eve and Keller]

I cannot believe how much of Daren's advice Simon just eats up ... he won't even listen to his fathers words to be cautious anymore ... he just wants to attack and get things over with, head on. I suppose, though, going at this for a year, it only makes sense that he would want to get it over with just a quickly as possible ... war can drive anyone crazy ...

I don't know. Things aren't looking to get any better, on my end.

I spend years and years dangling bait, waiting for a nibble. And while I'm sitting on deck and wiggling my little toes in the water, thinking I'm so very clever, a whale comes along and overturns the whole damned boat.

I know very well I can't ignore this. Don't you worry, now, I don't intend to try. The shock will wear off, soon, and then the cold will start seeping right in. And even when it means I may well have to murder someone I'm ... fond of, I can't help but welcome it.

It's been too long, and I've missed it so, so much.

I suppose this is your warning, then, though I doubt that you will see it for what it is. You're one of us, of that I'm certain. Pillar or Messenger, though? The compulsion to know is never so bad as the compulsion to kill, but ... oh, it's there. And it's still very, very strong.

Oh, how I've missed it.

What do you think about maybe giving this maze thing a go tomorrow? We can go in together, so we won't be breaking the buddy system rule. I kind of want to see it.

It is not long until the Festival now. I've sent all of my gifts away, and I've made sure that Matthias is sending his. This will be the second Festival we've spent at the vineyard. I think it will be better than the first. Not that the first was bad, by any means, but one always hopes for improvement.

Gifts from my family ought to be arriving at any moment. My mother was always very punctual. As for my father ... well, I hope Mother has reminded him.

Well, Sam's excited about the Festival. He's just old enough to understand what it is. Or at least, he knows it means presents for him, heh. It's been a hard job tryin to hide his presents from him! He's always been a bit of an explorer. Always seem to find him in the weirdest places! Guess he's just takin after his mom and dad. But I think I've found a good hidin spot this year. If he finds them, well, I reckon he deserves to keep them!
