It took a lot of work, but I finally got two appraisals from glassmakers. One of em depends on the other one having told the truth, but it's better than nothin. Said he couldn't appraise the glass without seein it, but if the guy I sold everything to was tellin the truth and wasn't mistaken, then the prices were pretty close to what he woulda said they were worth. It's all in writing and signed by both of them. I got two copies of it too. Maybe if I show one to my boss he'll finally relieve me of that extra debt he's tryin to hit me with. The other's for Daisy and Nathan, if they're still willin to help me out. Doubt it'll do much good though.

Are you fucking kidding --

[Filter: Reeve, in Atsirian]

Are you fucking kidding me?Her? Oh, yeah, what a surprise, I'll bet! How long has she been on the journals, Reeve? How long have you been planning this? Did you deliver those papers to her yourself?

Dragons! You know, Jamaella is never going to be taken seriously, ever again. You've completely ruined that woman for no reason at all except -- except you wanted to replace her with Felizia. Didn't you? Did you see her face? It's one thing to -- couldn't you have done that quietly? Felizia was enjoying that, every second of it. That woman is evil!

But hey! You know what, maybe Jamaella deserved that, for working with you. Maybe I deserve it, too! Well, let me tell you this, I don't give a fuck if Edalene figures out what's going on, here, I'm done. I'm not going to work with her for you, you can bet on that. I can't believe this. Did you enjoy that, too? Ugh. Fuck you both, I am so done, here.

There's ...

There's nothing here.

There's no footprints. No tracks. No sign of a struggle. The entire village is intact. It's like ... like the people just vanished. There's no one here. Everything is still in its place. I've been through houses. Coats are still hung on hooks, doors left unlatched.

There's just ... no one. No one anywhere.

Ugh, sister, I must say, the sound of your irreverent dark friend's sick is really beginning to grate on my already frayed nerves. You wouldn't believe how much histrionics from the Queen I've had to stomach this week, and I am completely jangled. I don't suppose he could shut his door.

Oh, what a surprise!

I believe I've seen some talk of this in the courts of Razen, of late. Linked journals, drawing many people across Atsiria together, isn't that so? It sounds very strange, but not so complex. I'm sure that I can figure it all out on my own, so there's no need for explanations.

Introductions, though, now, those are much more in order. I'm to understand that many of my peers and hopefully future colleagues are here, are they not? We should make ourselves known to one another. For me, my name is Felizia. My family is known for their jewelery mines and markets, and I am my mother's most trusted second. I've been in the capital of late, hoping to do what I can to serve Her Majesty the Queen. I think many of you already know of me, hm?

What an overwhelming day this has been! First my ... unfortunate discovery of Miss Jamaella vile treachery, and now this? I can't imagine what could happen from here.

This has been on my mind for the last few days, with Lady Bunny and Mariana talking about leaving. It's made me think of my own mother and how dangerous things have become in the North, and...I think it would be best if she accompanied them to Tersel. Mikaela will be heartbroken, of course, she and Mother have formed quite a strong bond over the last several months. I'll miss her as well...but with all that's going on I believe it would be for the best right now.

[Filter: Private]

...I wish this weren't necessary. I wish none of this were happening right now...I wish Mother could stay here as long as she pleased. But if things get much worse, I...

I can't lose the only blood family I have left. I just can't.

What is it about that damn room? Every time I've been down there I've been overcome with thoughts of Hanalan, then this feeling that I shouldn't even be down there. But I still keep wanting to go back, wanting to understand it...I've never felt so driven to understand something like this before. Just what's causing this to happen? How can one room have such an effect on a person's mind?

I want to know. I've never wanted to know something this much...what's come over me?

I dig more and more into these murders, and still find little of value. There is simply no evidence of anything. I don't understand it. What I wouldn't give for a murder scene that hasn't been already seen and cleaned up by Eina's guards.

I suppose I owe you an apology.

It's not fair. I've been practicing the bow for weeks and I'm just starting to be good and no one cares anymore. Celeste just starts and she's even better than me and now she gets all the attention. Why is she so much better than me already without even having to practice as hard as I do?

We are still getting lots of pilgrims through our convent returning to their homes from the Autumn Pilgrimage. I do so enjoy seeing all the fresh faces and hearing their stories, though they are not nearly as excited for the Dragons as they were as they were passing through the first time. Mostly, it seems, they would just rather be back in their homes already.

[Filter: Private]

It is rather amusing. They are all full of faith and love for the Dragons, until they are on their way home. The Dragons no longer matter as all they care about is their home and their jobs and the things they left behind. You would think if their faith was true they could at least last until they get home to forget what it is they were supposed to learn on their trip and why they were here to begin with. Their faith is as fake a they are.

Glenn. With how occupied you have been with all sorts of important matters in recent days, I thought I should call that ... girl to your attention. The one who has been fawning all over you. I realise that hardly narrows the possibilities, but ever since the Festival, she has been most disagreeable, and complaining loudly about you to anyone who gives her a second glance.

Oh, and she has been saying the most ungraceful things about Lady Canti. I do hope you could have a word with her, when you have time to spare.

Ah, my lord ... ? Were you thinking that we would attend court tonight?

I have no objections, of course, only ... I would not argue if you preferred another day of rest before we did. You must be so exhausted after that long ride! Of course, if you are already recovered and wish to go, I would be happy to accompany you ... I just thought it could hardly hurt to ask.

How is your brother doing, anyway? I saw you writing about him, the other day, but I ... felt like it wasn't my place to intrude. I thought I might come see you, but that, too ...

Would you like to take a walk? Just around for a bit. I've been trying to make myself get out a bit more, or I'm afraid I'll forget how to walk entirely. And I would never say no to some company, and considering how kind you've been to me ...

If you don't want to come, though, that's fine. I can manage on my own.

Well, the day has come. For years, I've been skillfully avoiding taking a little responsibility where research training is concerned, but now my boss has me cornered. He has realised that he's never asked me to contribute to the greater scholarly discourse of ... whatever it is scholars talk about. So he's told me that I'm going to some meeting in his place. A meeting where we're going to make ourselves look important by talking about our research without revealing too much of what we're actually researching, because everyone hates sharing. It probably isn't an important one, seeing that if it was, he'd be going, not me. That meeting is this weekend.

This is either going to be boring, or ... no, that's it. Boring. So this is just to say, if I'm not around next week, I probably have died from boredom. It'll be very sad, I know.

You've been in to see Lancel a lot lately!! Is he feeling better?? I was thinking maybe I could come see him, too, if he is. He always seems so lonely~ And you're sweet to keep him company like that~~

[Filter: Stephanie]


Do you want to go riding? Alanna's been so fussy lately and I thought maybe both you and her would feel better if we went for a flight! And we can have guards out with us, too, I can ask Papa and I bet he wouldn't say no as long as we were careful. And you know me! I'm always careful!

What do you think?

...our visit to Megam seems like a lifetime ago now. How long has it been since I even visited the orphanage? When I left, I promised everyone I'd write them every day...it's been years now. I guess they've moved on with their lives too, but I miss them, I feel guilty for losing touch. I wonder if Ward ever became a priest like he wanted to, or Robert found the girl of his dreams and started a family with her. If Jane found what she wanted to do with her life, or Sally and George ever...

There's no point in writing to them, I don't even know where they live now. But still...
