This nasty inheritance business really is starting to drag down the mood of court, I swear. I don't care who's in the right, and who in the wrong, I really don't. I only wish that they could resolve it quietly. Properly! Like any good high class family would! It seems like everyday, it's inserted itself more and more into our lives! It's becoming quite unfortunate!

If only Ebony's group would stop siding with Dickon. They all want it to end as badly as anyone else, don't they? Fanning the flames is hardly going to accomplish anything but encouraging both sides.

And ... well, I suppose I must admit. There are other concerns, at court. I really have been just ... just ecstatically happy, over matters with Philip being so perfect, but really ... something has to be done about my poor sister. So many different forces, leading her astray. And I swear, that Jason boy has only made things worse, lately.

I really don't know what I was thinking, on that. Not that I can admit it. Oh, Josiah would never let me hear the end of it!

Brother, now, I don't mean to tell you how to go about doing your job, but ... really, I do think something must be done about Lydie!

I can't stop thinking about it, you know.

The hurricane. I know that it almost killed us, and if we hadn't reached the cave when we did, we wouldn't be here, now. I realize that. But there was something almost ... hypnotic about it. Something grand and powerful. If I had magic like that ... magic that could harness that sort of power ... all the bastards who killed Justin could only scatter in fear before me, then.

... the quarterstaff hasn't been coming along so well. We both know it. I don't have the coordination, nor the strength. But many it's for the best.

There's a stigma for it in Kilia, but ... I'm not in Kilia anymore. And I would be willing to risk what questions might arise, should I ever go back. I know it can blunt one's skills with practical magic. I know it could ruin my expertise with artifacts. It might even destroy my sensitivity to magic being worked.

But it seems worth it, to me. So. Could you teach me to use magic the way you do?

How is it looking in there, Terrance, Calaith? Dragons, we've been down here so long that I'm starved, I can't imagine what it must be like for you in there. Do we need to shift this more? I think we're all waiting to hear whatever you need us to do ...

The convent is ...

It's -- it's a total mess. The storm ripped through here really hard, harder than any we've had in years. and it tore the convent up. I -- I think they're going to try and rebuild it, but it's going to take so long, and ...

And I have to stay at home.

With Angela.

And what is your problem, of late? Don't try to duck out of this one. You've been creeping around, trying not to talk about whatever is on your mind, but you're far too easy to read. And a bad liar, so don't try to lie about this, either.

Where are you?!

You have the confusion you wanted! Everything is a mess, can't you see that? They've -- they've already started the march. The traitor on the Hanmor side has given the signal and everything is moving. They're going to come looking for any moment, Davan.

If we're going to leave, it has to be right now. So -- so where are you?

I swear, if they pull me off into this ...

I hope everyone is ready for the big event that's coming up very soon, here~~ I've made it a point to make sure all of the invitations went out in time and to everyone who needs to get them! I really do hope that you're all very excited for it! ♥

I was hoping that holding the party two weeks after the Night of the Dead celebrations would be plenty of time to rest and recuperate. Mm~ and from the looks of all these responses, it does seem like it was. But, of course, if you don't think so, do let me know! ♥

This is amazing. I was actually able to make money off the delivery and it was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. I already got my next job, too, can you believe it?

I'm supposed to take a package out to Harcha and deliver it to some sort of inn, I'm not all that sure on the details just yet, but anyway ... this shouldn't be a problem at all, right?

I'm going to head out tomorrow. This trip is a little bit longer than what I did last time, but it shouldn't be too bad, just as long as I take food and stuff. Anyway, wish me luck!

I was weak, I thought it was what I needed, I thought it would...I don't know, confirm how I felt but now I'm more confused than ever. I don't even know if I regret it, she felt so good. But

I'm no more sure of anything than I was three years ago.

The Night of the Dead was the best! Everyone keeps complimenting me on how great my costume was, and it's been a whole week since the party! I'm surprised at how many people recognized who I was supposed to be too. I didn't think they would. Of course I have to tell everyone it was all Dairanne's idea, and that she did all the planning. I hope she's been hearing as many compliments as I have been.

I can't wait until the next ball. They're always so much fun, and I like them even more than I used to now that I'm older.

Father Leonard has agreed to allow me to continue studying medicine, as I had learned so much in my time in Fairen, as I was helping Father. He even has requested more books on the subject to be sent to our convent so that I have more materials to study from. I must have truly impressed him when he was visiting our home. Unfortunately, he says that I must not let it distract myself from my other duties, or my studies of the scripture. I must treat my interest in medicine and healing as a hobby, as opposed to it being my focus at the convent.

I will make you proud yet, Father. I will continue making a name for myself within the church until the foolish old men in charge cannot deny how hard I have worked and will reward me with an even better position. I refuse to spend my life as a mere servant at some run down convent entertaining selfish travelers and being treated like I am only here to serve them. I am better than this, and I will prove it to everyone.

Just stay strong, Father, as you always have. Please, Cameryn, do not let anything happen to him while I am gone. Please make up your mind soon.

I'm beginning to think this may have all been dreadfully unnecessary. Have you been looking down there? I think we're winning. Whoever this traitor of Hanmor's was, they certainly did their work well, don't you think? If we wouldn't get killed for deserting in the first place, I'd suggest going b

Inara --

I think -- I think that Joshua might be sick. I'm not sure, but he says that he's not feeling well, and there's a red dot in his shoulder, and another on his arm. They might just be bugbites, but it's a little late in the year for that, and I think he has a fever ...

I can't tell. I'm not very ... good at this. Are you going to be home from the market, soon?

I just keep thinking, maybe he wouldn't have done it if I'd been there.

Maybe he would have anyway. Maybe I'd even have helped him, and then we'd both be in trouble ... but maybe he wouldn't have. Maybe I could have talked him out of it. Maybe we'd just have had our Samhain together, and forget about the fires and the meat ... We could have sat together and shared stories. Talked about what we remembered ... maybe we could have come up with some new ideas on how to look.

If I'd been there.

I know I'm being stupid. It's not my fault he did something crazy. He knows it was crazy, too ... that's what's important, right? He's not going to try it again anytime soon. He's going to be careful with the people there, and if too many questions come up, he'll run. That's everything I would have told him to do. He's not little anymore.

But neither am I.

This is so stupid ...

Hey ...

How have things been? Since Samhain? I thought you might be busy, and I didn't want to pressure you, or anything.

Oh, Hasten ... blind as ever to another's heart.

He is right. I am twenty-six years old, and still unwed, with whispers that the Lion thinks no one worthy of marrying his beloved sister, not even a Prince. It makes sense to give my hand to a hero of the realm, one who defends a high Lady's honour, and makes himself her safety and security. A man fit for his sister, so the Lion sees.

What he does not see: A man gathering all the pieces of a broken girl, and trying to mend her whole, a girl who has given her heart to him. Oh Dragons, I am not cruel. I cannot take him from her. I know what she will see. No woman has ever looked on me without jealousy faintly written in her eyes. As for Lord Glenn, I judge him to be a fair man, as he must to be held high in Hasten's esteem. But he ...

... He is not who I want.

Well, I'm sure you've seen the men. All tidied up and ready to march the instant Hasten gives the order. Off to the freezing northlands with the lot of us, and good riddance. I imagine that he's likely to keep me on a tight leash up there, as well. You know Hasten, he can't stand the sight of me doing a single thing he hasn't given me written consent for. Otherwise I imagine he'd be commanding me to run off back to the capital with my tail between my legs, and off I would go.

I hope you're not making yourself too miserable thinking of your brothers going up there with the rest of us.

Well. Here we go.

If all is according to plan, we should have Nasen routed by nightfall. Then, Anemone, I'll see what I can do about convincing Father to march to Lahn. If you think you can just run through Koriner lands, burning and looting, Dentorian dogs, you have another thing coming to you.

It didn't hit me until now how much I wanted to put this off. I've already commited myself to this path, but... perhaps there was no way around the fact that I'm still a Lord in my own mind. I'd already taken on the mantle, but I'd never been as successful as I thought I must be to fulfill my goals. What I've accomplished now ... this is what will seal everything in stone. I can deliver our victory in my own way now.

What remains of the shipping route between Varise and Megam is mine now. There is no ship that doesn't have cannons that can resist my attacks now. I have two ships built for battle that can pinch any other ship between them. If Varise's navy decided to come at me one at a time, I could match each and every one of them. That last one is a pipe dream. They would never be so stupid.

Still, that's it. I've already won if I keep my head on straight. I'll chase their supplies away, and let them weather a siege without a prayer of reprieve. Sylea will take take care of the rest.

[Filter: Sylea, Ferselle, Noye]

Today I dragged the Varise ship I captured into a smuggling cove. I found more crew members to fill out my ranks. Tomorrow I will pinch the trade route shut, and Varise will never see a stocked trading ship again.

How is your end of the bargain holding up?
