I think Vashti has made a little friend in Opia. Darling little things have been playing in the Grotto all day. For all the darkness hanging over the city, it is such a delight to see something quite as sweet as the kindling of new friendships. I do hope Mirari will not mind if they have more regular play dates; I would not want to keep little Vashti away from his newest companion. He really does need to learn to play with others, I think I may have spoilt him a touch too much.

Each help in our way
Contribute to common goal
More than just the sword

To Lagoma, I say; Whatever happens, by standing for you, I hope the sun rises tomorrow brighter than today
To Mangata, I say; you gave me my life. I owe you nothing less.
To Petrichor, I say; this world was given to all of us. I fight for those who cannot.

To my family; I wish you well. I love you.
To my lords; I stand as would any soldier you have called to your service, and ask nothing more.
To Arvum, I say only this. You deserved better.

If I open this again, I will have lived.

"You will be like me. Alone, without a chorus of your own. And no one to hear the song of the dead you left in your wake..."

So were its last words, but he never was a prophet.

I owe them all my life, ten times over at least. But for now, I sleep.

Dangerous choices
In protecting those we love
Better me than them.

( Georgette is far too quick to take away one of my entries to the Scholar. )

Dear Me,

Stop being maudlin. Immediately. It isn't like you. You're only one year older. There are only four months yet to go. Nevermind that there is a pile of dresses that no longer fit and a pile of paper with far too many names to consider and sift through. You will keep Georgie preoccupied with this journal entry because you've just mentioned her and she will have to read it. Once she starts, you will have your opening to slip out of the Archives for a breath of fresh air.

Always,

Me.

Postscript: Dulcie, that style is incredibly cathartic!

I was directed to meditate at the Shrine of the Sentinel, today.

While I can sit for hours and hours with a single book, regardless of how dry or verbose the author becomes, sitting in silence is an awful experience. Simply sitting there, waiting for a thing that may or may not happen, while trying not to think is something I am not accustomed to.

Perhaps it is the army outside the gates, but being surrounded by silence is worrisome...

It's done, my vows were given quietly, in private. I'm finally a Sister of the Faith. It's sweet to have found the right path finally. It's sweet to be alive.

I pray to Limerance often, but it is rarely for love. The oaths of duty and fidelity have shaped my life. First to my tribe and family, then to House Riven when the herons and the Greenwoods became one and the same.

Passion and lust pull me easily. But love? I have given it little thought.

From what I understand of marriages among the Compact highborn, they are forged of duty. For diplomacy and resources and the good of your blood. These things make sense to me.

But I see in Marquessa Samantha Match with Lord Rymarr love, as well. I don't think of myself as a romantic, but that makes my heart sing for the marquessa, from one woman to another.

That is a fine thing to find in your life, if you can manage it.

And he seems a strong, worthy man who will bring the Deepwoods much. It all, it seems to me, is for the good.

Limerance's blessings come in many forms, and love and duty do not always have to come separately. I shall think on this more.

Princess Valencia hosted a fight training session, and I dragged myself over. That fellow, Mathias, was leading it, and he's as fast as I remembered. He remembered me, too, and made me fight with a sword instead of my hammer. Gave me some damned fine advice about keeping a helmet around to clap on my head if something goes wrong, too.

Late to the weapons practice at the Hart, but worthwhile to have the bruises of training at the end of the night.

Relationship Note on Ariel

Fondness. She is okay to touch. Very respectful of boundaries. No hugging or kiss, though. Still a bit weird.

Sister in law of Lady Ariel. Of the more tolerable level but not certain on her. She is of the wise mind.

Relationship Note on Baltus

No touchy. Nooo touchy. Perhaps a little too forward in trying to approach. Kneed, or attempted, him for touching then putting his lips to my head. Very weird.

Progress has been made with him. He is of the least intolerable of all the people. He is still a Darkwater but not horrible. Still weird.

Relationship Note on Ford

He is more tolerable than he once was. Perseverance pays of, I suppose. He is still weird and strange but tolerable. I do not object touching from him.

Leave blank if this journal is not a relationship

Mark if this is a private, black journal entry
