I heard you saved Jonathan. You got him out. I didn't think you were even going to try. I know how difficult it must have been for you, and still you did it. I'm glad. That was a great thing you did. I don't know if Jonathan will say it himself, all things considered, but having been in that nightmare myself, I know how grateful he must be.

Dragons, everything is just a mess ... the recruits don't know what to do, and just as soon as they start getting the concept of what's going on, they're just as quickly deployed to another location ... to go out scouting or to help another House in need ...

It horrible just how many things are going wrong in Korin right now. I can't even begin to imagine how much worse it's going to get, from here ... ooh, I wish things weren't so out of control like this. If only there was something I could do ...!

Ooh and Mal! Poor Mal ... she's hardly been able to get any attention lately from anyone. I hope she won't have to grow up in such a mess for too long. Things have to work out ... they just have to!

Heh, I finally made my first delivery! It took a while to actually get my first job, even though they said that they would keep me in mind. The tailors said that they needed a shipment of some fabric picked up from a shop in the next town and all I had to do was pick up the package from them. One I got back from picking up the package, he just gave me my money and a little something extra for bringing it to him so fast and that was it!

It was so fun, too, heh. Leo really enjoyed being able to fly around for so long and I think he knew that he was being helpful. I even got him a little treat at the end for all his hard work. I think I've found a pretty decent job for now!

You know, as confident as I am about my abilities, there's only so much I can do when training rookies and then sending them out to villages a month later. Some of them aren't going to come back. And now it's coming to the point where I'm going to have to start again, so we actually have a decent army to defend this place if it comes to that. Maybe we should hire a mage to turn boys into soldiers, because I'm no fucking miracle maker.

Lord Hasten. Lord Glenn. I demand we convene in a war council this very moment. If you have not seen, Korin has dealt us yet another insult, and I will not be pacified by empty promises any longer. I am not so great a fool.

This very moment, and do not think to tell me no. I am lord of the North, and it is your duty to obey me in this.

No, this can't be. Everyone's-

There's bodies everywhere. Soldiers and refugees both. Who would do this? Who would kill this many innocents? It barely even looks like there was a struggle. They left no one alive.

It was an ambush, a blood bath. They must have been lying in wait, just for this.

I can't-

I can't wait until the big party tomorrow night. I just got my costume from the tailor and it looks great! I'm not going to tell anyone what it is though, it has to be a surprise. Dairanne knows, of course, because she helped me decide what to be, but no one else can know. I look really great though. I think it's my best costume yet!

Tomorrow night ... it will be nothing like Razen, to be certain. No match for its sophistication, its wildness, its gaiety. Yet, I do not have to match it. Anyone who wishes for those things can find their way to Razen. Here, it will be quiet, yes, but intimate as well. It suits the character of the city. There is little point in imitating the rest.

As for a costume, ah, it is the happiest part of the preparations. How stimulating it is, to think of a costume every year. And now, a costume for my daughter as well. I look forward to when she is of an age to choose one herself.

The problem with being trapped on a boat is the immense amount of thought I can put into every decision I've made along the way. Dragons, I keep coming back to the same question of how I've managed to get this far already. One day at a time, and one step at a time... that's what I would have said to anyone who came for council. Didn't I tell anyone who was just starting out that they needed to approach their situation differently?

The last time I felt this alone was my first mission away from Lucre. I'd never had to leave the city before like that. I always wanted to be a traveller, but when the time finally came... Ha, I was never ready. But I was a bright star rising, and fear was for the students who weren't doing as well as I did. In the end, perhaps it was pride that pulled me through until confidence came. Haha, there's no 'perhaps' about it, really. I don't see how I could have survived without that drive to be the best I could.

I can run as long as I want, but I need to find something to ... something to drive me on. Something to take pride in again. Something I can reach for other than pure survival. I didn't just lose a position, I lost my goals. I used to look at people who drifted through life without a goal, and wish that they would find a passion. I used to see people come into the Church and lack the ambitions they needed to succeed. Ha, and now I'm one of those people. What amount of life will I have left to lead if I don't find another anchor?

Perhaps I'm looking too far ahead. I still haven't gotten surviving day to day finished. I should content myself with the battles I already have, and not go looking for more...

I've had the good fortune of picking a very stable ship. The captain and crew of this fine vessel are weathering the squalls of these southern seas aptly. The captain is thankful that the seas have been mostly calm for the whole year, besides a few exceptions. It's been a blessed year. Though, from a few of the crew, I gather that they feel next year is going to be a lot worse. An awful superstitious lot, thinking that a good year signals a bad one coming.

I'm afraid that's as interesting as my life has been lately!

So I'm just out here, making sure Senna's getting some exercise, and I see a pegasus knight making for the castle at full speed. Looks like she was from Kasrae too. Incoming message? Someone's going to want to take that one, I think, because she didn't look like she was making a social call!
