I really, really need to just not think about tomorrow, for a bit ...
I'm so nervous. I wish I could just not do it, but I can't just not do it, not now. Lady Mother knows what I'm doing, I'm sure of it, and she wouldn't be happy at all if I backed down. She would say it's weak. She's think badly of me, and I don't want her to have any reason to do that, not ever.
I need to get it out of my head!

[there are many stylized sketches here of faces here. all are making varied, and exaggerated expressions]
Does anyone recognize the faces ...? Some of you should, I think. In fact, I think some of them are some of you. You see, they're the members of the Jewel's Council!
Actually, I've been drawing them all a lot, lately. I've found that I can exaggerate features a little bit, and it makes the faces more interesting and the expressions more ... hm, I don't know exactly how to say it, but it makes the expression look more ... defined? I've been working on this technique a lot over the last year. And they -- well, you, I suppose ... you have such interesting faces, and all manage to look so different when all beside each other. It's perfect for this sort of practice ...
I hope no one takes offense, at least. I'll stop, if anyone does ... but Mother likes seeing these drawings. She says that she likes seeing how I can make someone's thoughts obvious by drawing them on their faces ...!
