Another wall. I feel like I can't do a dragonsdamned thing. What do you want, Gebann? I'm looking, and nothing I find is right at all. You're just going to stay in there forever on your own, and nothing I do is making you budge. The only things I can think of anymore are things that I know are going to backfire, and make it so much worse.

I need help.

[Filter: Lauren]

Hey, look, I could really use some help right now. I don't think either of us have gotten far on our own. Maybe we should talk it out, and see what we've both got?

You've been spending a lot of time with Marias of late ...

I have a question for you about that.

Um so.


Is there anything I can do to help, here? Do you need any food or anything, Andrew? I figured Maeve could probably uh. Help you back up to your room there or whatever but I haven't really been able to do much down here, so I thought.

Yeah! I thought maybe I'd be able to help now that you're out. Are you like. Okay. I mean, if I'd just come out of that thing I'd probably be a little messed up, you know? So yeah if you need help, say something? I've got lots of time to kill.

And Dragons fucking damn you, why won't you write?

What did I do? I mean, besides the obvious You really can't avoid me forever. You can't! I guess maybe you just haven't seen all my writing. Sure, that sounds feasible.

Come on, Loki, I just want to talk, please.

I don't even know if I did the right thing by telling him!

What if she did do something to Devine?? What if it was all just a big act, all of her concern and worry and telling me that she was scared somebody hurt him?? What if she just played me like a fool?? What if she just -- just wanted to use him to get back at Grampa for throwing her out? What if --

But if she wasn't lying, then -- then --

Ohhhh why does this all have to be so complicated?? None of it was supposed to be this way! None. Devine, why are you doing this to me?? Why couldn't all of these rumors just be true?? You ran off to Eblar or to Aeda or something and everything is just going to be fine. Why couldn't it be true instead of just ...

[Filter: Leisa]

So, um ... have you heard those rumors?? I heard somebody saw Devine with the sword at a shop in Eblar, trying to pawn it off, you know?? What do you think??

I am fast running out of excuses to remain here.

With Beatrice disgraced and dead, Bresa's financial affairs have certainly recovered from the dire straights I was sent here to respond to. I haven't seen Lord Peter write for a time, and I should be glad for it. If he did, I'm sure he'd be asking me when I'm going to come back home to marry his son.


Some protection he'll provide. Or any of them.

The rules of the game are very clear, here. I'll need to offer that hint. It's only fair, and I always play fair. As soon as I do that, there is going to be attention coming my way. I'll try and pick something obscure enough to not be obvious, but it needs to be fair. There are going to be people coming for me. Of that, I can be sure. And when they come ...


The East will be my tomb, of that I can be fairly sure.

But here, in the North ... strong, battle-hardened men all around me, and a great deal of them quite fond of my company. As much as I hate to be the fragile female and hide behind them, quivering in feminine terror, pragmatism would do me better than pride in this circumstance.

I'll need to find new excuses.

Now that Antony is back, it seems harder not to notice what everyone is saying. There is still nothing to be done about it though, I suppose. People will say what they want to, until something actually proves them wrong. And I have no information to help either way.

Now that he is back though, there are times ... I can't even quite describe it but he will look at me and I get chills running up and down my body. Only for a moment though and then everything is back to normal. We smile and perform our parts and never speak of anything important. I suppose that is probably what life will be like for me forever.

At least the wedding plans are going well. It will be a lovely day, unless - No, I will not allow myself to think that she meant it. She was upset, that's all. I'll give her more time and she will take it all back.

I've read that whole conversation over and over again. Each time, I tell myself that Lizzie has to be right. She would know better than me. She would. I bet this whole thing is just because I'm pregnant and that makes you think and feel weird things sometimes.

Though some of it happened before ...

No. No no no. I'm not going to think about it anymore.

[Filter: Public]

I can't believe that it's only going to be about two more months until the new baby is born. It really seems like only yesterday I found out I was pregnant.

Violet is getting really excited now, though I'm not sure if it will last when there is an actual baby and she doesn't get all the attention anymore. I know we have spoiled her a bit. Or a lot. It's just so easy to do. At least I get to be home with her all day now. I know she loves her nurses but it's not quite the same as having her parents here.

I'd like to extend my apologies to everyone in regards to the behavior of the minstrel, Belladonna. Everything she has done is, of course, in part my responsibility, as it was my whim that brought her here and my negligence that has allowed her to take her petulance so far.


Rest assured that she won't be seen in Lireth -- or indeed, the North -- again. She is well on her way back to Eblar, now. And you can be sure that the men I sent with her are as unimpressed with her recent antics as I. I doubt she will fare well, wherever she sees fit to go.

I found the most perfect mask today, while Marigold and I were just wandering around, surely not expecting any grand revelations! It's -- well, I suppose I can't tell you what it is, can I? Autumn would be very cross with me, I'm sure, why, you should have seen her scolding Lyle for going on and on about his plans like it wasn't supposed to be a big secret!

Well, he deserved it. Everyone who didn't see the look on his face, I'm afraid you missed a grand opportunity. And now I think he has to change his costume all at the last minute, so -- I certainly won't say anything about mine.

But I'm very excited!

I have our tailors working on it right now!

I suppose since it's all fairly out of my hands now until the fitting, I could offer to help with anything you still need a hand with, Autumn?

What was that? Was that -- Lord Reiz?

He said something about his sister. Has Robert been pestering the Karnach girls, as well? I ... I had no idea. I thought that we were his ... victims of choice, how bizarre.

I don't know what that was about, but it must be true. I certainly believe it of Robert. It's past time he started reaping the rewards for his impudence, but -- but I wouldn't have expected that.

Mothers above. Well. At least he's not likely to attend Lady Sophia's party tonight, after that, is he? That's a relief ...

Ah, Raezi, perhaps we should excuse ourselves. I think poor Aes rather has her hands full, and this is ... sensitive business, is it not?

[Filter: Public, in Atsirian]

So hey, public announcement, if I overhear anyone spouting off the same trash about my sister that Lord Robert was spreading around, I can't be blamed for what I do! I might just show up at a fancy tea party at your estate and upend the table or something. In related news, Lord Robert isn't feeling well and has regretful cancelled the rest of his appointments, today.

Sorry about that, Aes -- Karlesta Faedya, Raezi Saedri. Maybe he'll think twice before interrupting your meetings from now on, too? I hope that's worth getting tea everywhere. I hope I didn't ruin any dresses, that would be a shame.

These rumors are just silly. Devine wouldn't do something so horrible, even if he hadn't wanted the sword he'd never sell it. But everyone seems so sure! Dragons, I know he'd never, but what if he would? Argh, it's all so confusing...lately I feel like all I want to do is be with Michael, it's such a mess here and I don't know how much more I can take. But that's selfish of me, isn't it...

I just hope Devine comes back soon and in one piece so I can yell at him.

Elden ...

I am going to get you out of there. And you're going to remember all of this, aren't you? Andrew certainly does. He won't talk about it, but he won't meet Pearl's eyes, either. Obvious enough.

[a long pause]

I never asked about any of this. I didn't expect to see any of this, when this began. I didn't want to see any of this! I never did. Why are you showing me all of this. Why can't you just --

The longer this goes on, the more of this I see. You're not going to like that. You're not going to like any of this at all.

I swear, if you even think of leaving me here to deal with this alone -- I will hunt you down. Don't think I won't. I will. Right through the tundra and the war and all of it. This isn't my fault.

It's not.

Mm, yes, that is the sensible thing to do, my King. Quite the pragmatist. How fortunate for us all that Lord Tarmon objectively lacks experience. And no doubt you are quite prepared for war. In a matter between Koriners and northerners, why spend time on diplomacy when there is a perfectly serviceable battlefield? It is in their natures.

And Mother? Mother has not changed, my King. Still as she was when you last asked. I hope it comforts you, as little as it comforts me.
