Hey, you know, I've barely seen you for weeks. Not just down here in puzzleville, either. You haven't really been haunting the halls, either.

Are you just ... you know, keeping to yourself after those interesting few weeks in the room with the chairs? I haven't seen much of Elden, either. Heh, though I really don't blame him if he never goes down there, again. I'm shocked Andrew and Nessa are both back on the horse so eagerly.

Sorry. Not trying to pry. Just curious, I guess. You weren't ... looking too great, by the end of that.

Lady Mother seemed so ... different, today.

I really don't know what to think about it. She's always ... she's not a very soft person. She used to scare me because of that. But I understand why she is that way, now. Softness lets people take advantage of you. You can appear soft, but you have to be hard down inside. I understand that. Ever since I learned it, I've even missed Daddy a lot less -- or at least, I get less sad when I do miss him. Usually ...

But ... I just don't understand the way that she was acting, today. Those things that she was saying about Miss Sophia ...

I didn't like it. I really like Miss Sophia. I thought that we were allies with her, now. And allies should always respect one another. Why would she be saying those terrible, dismissive things about her if she really respected her?

... I ...

I don't ... I don't know if I love my Lady Mother. I see ... I see Karlesta and her ... mother, and I wonder what it would have been like if someone like that chose me. It's like they really are family. I don't ... I don't feel that with Magatha. I don't think that I ever will. But that's -- that's all right. I had already known for a long time that I wasn't going to be taken by anyone. I was just going to stay at Madame Wistera's until I was old enough to leave. My Lady Mother isn't kind, but she's taught me things ... she's taught me a lot.

I respect her.

... but today ...

Um, hello, James-Chauncy! Do you ... have some time to go out, today? I thought maybe we could do something. But not something fancy. I don't ... I don't really want to make an "appearance" today.

I just ... want to be with someone who's simple who I care about.

Hard times for everyone, these are.

[Filter: Casey]

Good morning, sweet girl!

I know you're spending most of your days working yourself up to the monumental damn task of meeting up with your mother again. Would be nice if we could just pretend she doesn't exist, eh? Just never go back home. Trust me, I'm no more excited to put up with her nagging as you are. Though this time -- I promise, the first young man she tries to make you marry, I'll put him outside on his arse.

... thinking we could talk a bit about that sort of thing, actually.

No, the last thing he needs is ... me bothering him. He has to ... it must be so hard to get into that mode. That ... that place he needs to put himself. I can't take him out of it.

No matter how much I miss him.

I really do miss him ...

[Filter: Benedette]

Um! Do you maybe want to do something today ...? I don't know what ...! It could be anything. Lessons, or we could go out, or maybe play cards, or ... or something? Anything ...

... I haven't seen you write in a very long time.

Are ... are you here? Are you reading? I see Hana write, but you never respond to her. If you were here, you would, wouldn't you? But maybe you have. Maybe it's just all been in filters. I've wondered so many times ...

Nansi, I need your help. I think I -- I've gotten myself into such a mess. I don't know what to do. Please, be there ... there's no one else. Everyone is so close. Nessa would -- and Druce couldn't -- and Loki would be ...

I'm in such a knot.

... I never really learned how to deal with people. And now ...

Oooooh! I cannot believe the nerve of Arisa!

She's trying to convince me to join her campaign effort, which I suppose would normally be an honor but in her case, she's so obviously attempting to use me to get in good with the Queen! According to her, the fact that her brother is courting a cousin to the Queen means she has connections! I do not appreciate being used this way, a Lady of Karnach deserves far better!

This is such bullshit! Third day in a row I'm late for work at the tavern because that asshole Benton won't let me off when he's supposed to, and they fire me! I wasn't even more than 10 minutes late, and they weren't even busy!

I kept tellin him I had to leave, that I was going to be late, but he wouldn't listen. He just kept makin up stupid excuses and findin more crap for me to do just to keep me longer. I swear he's doin it just to get me into trouble too. Just when I start makin enough money to pay him back too. That's gotta be the reason. Why else would he be tryin to screw me like this?

Darling, have you talked to your father's healer today? I heard some very interesting news, in case you haven't~

[Filter: Private]

After everything that's gone wrong, it was time for things to get back on track again. Now if only Hilary and Cameryn would leave and let us finish this, once and for all.

Though maybe, I suppose, we won't have to now.

Ah... Nessa?

Do you think Lauren's been acting weird? First it was that puzzle everyone was stuck in and worried about, and then Mom started writing and Lauren didn't even write back once! She won't talk to me at all, and she's even acting weird around Tabby and Mairenn! I think they're even noticing it too but they haven't said anything. At least not to me.

It's strange to think about the country being at war. It makes everything else seem so trivial, or at least it does to me. What does one person matter, in the midst of all that?

Though ... perhaps I can understand. After all, I keep thanking the Dragons that Lucas was not sent off early enough to be of use in a battle. He can joust and knows one end of a sword from the other but he is no soldier, not yet. We are very lucky there. Dragons willing, things will not become so dire as to make such considerations irrelevant.

And on that note ...

Good afternoon, Lady Eliza. I hope you are well. I assume my son has arrived in your city by now. I trust that he has not caused you any trouble.

Have you ever thought about a word really hard? Said it so many times in your head that it doesn't even sound like a word at all anymore?

I do that all the time.

Murders. War. Entire city populations vanished into seemingly thin air. I have always heard that Korin was a terrible place to live, and yet it was hard to believe the tales until now. Never before have I wanted to leave this damned country so badly, and yet I am stuck until my superiors in Lucre say otherwise.

They have probably forgotten about me. I have not even seen them write in ages.

I need something to get my mind off of these troubled times.

With so many visitors within the city of Eina these days, I thought it might be appropriate to announce that I will be heading to a rather warm and comforting tavern not far from my chapel. Just in case anyone wishes to join me. I always welcome company and new faces to converse with while I am in town. I promise I will keep the religious speeches to a bare minimum.

Oh my goodness everyone simply must try this strawberry cream sherry!! I think it's just a crime that I never knew about it until just today why didn't anyone tell me? I think it's oh is it Megami Mari I swear she told me but I just can't remember! Whoever is responsible for this you should know that it's the most wonderful thing I've ever tasted!! And I mean that! I do!

So then the rumours spoke truly. Lady Ella will tend to Mansoure while we are away, and we will march with the elder brothers Rowan at our lead. Good Northern generals beside them, of course, but our Lords meet already in the pass, far ahead of us.

We spend our entire lives preparing for this day, and still it somehow manages to unfold unlike anything we might have foreseen. That's the way of things, I suppose.

It will be hard to leave, but with these matters settled, I cannot imagine the march will be long delayed. So many here still need assistance. So many were injured in the rioting, and more are brought in each day. But there is truth in it when they say that the skills of the Valkuria would be wasted on the wants of the city, I know. The field is where we belong, and where we will do the most good.

I pray to the Dragons Light and Dark each day that I will be sufficient to the task before me. They say that none can know what they truly are until they have faced the field of battle and stood or fled or died.

My family and I left the ghost city formerly known as Glashen two days ago. Kastel, I assume your lord father won't have any objections to returning guests? I do hope the lot of you are well, all things considered.

...telling Sheila what's happened will not be easy, though. There is no truly gentle way to break such devastating news, is there?

Hey ... I know it's probably nothing, but I just thought I'd mention ... this thing I told you about today, Daisy? One of Hope's friends, here, her name is Leanne. She sounds ... Kanemorian, maybe? I've been trying to ask questions without prying too much, but I have to get out of here early, I think Anton might have caught the chicken pox, after all. Ugh. I'm going to go check on him, but I just thought I'd let you know, before I forget.
