We annihilate ourselves
in the dust of ages
floating in the sunlight
emerging from our cages
The revival of time
We take a path, brazen,
The truth ever sublime,
No more hesitation.
Non omnis moriar.

My family, of course, where I would be without them -- I can only think of the twisting, horrible nightmares full of blood and pain and darkness that they have prevented, with their love and support.
My friends, those I can call such...they are more family to me than I have ever let them know, and for that I am truly sorry.
And Nuala...when I thought of what might be happening to you, the pain and loss in my heart were an order of magnitude greater than anything some shade or demon could ever hope to inflict.
I'm sure I made a great clanking fool of myself, charging out into the night and the downpour.
But it was worth it, to learn you were safe.
Thank all the Gods, though they may weep at what we lost. We will repay that debt in full.

The whole world is mourning. In places I've never seen, never knew existed, there is sadness and fear and loss and regret. I don't understand. This is too big for me to understand. But I feel your sorrow, and I weep for it. May the gods keep us all, in every far-flung corner of the world, and even into darkness.
I just wish I knew what I was crying for.

Eventually, we all run out of second chances.
There are many more things to write. But I don't feel safe writing them here. Isn't that a laugh?
I am so very tired of these shackles that have been placed on us, though. I am livid about what happened today.
I don't intend to waste this.

Now this gray melancholy that seems to burrow its way deep, leaving a hollow within. I fear I may not smile again -- that is dramatic, I know. The sun will show its face again, and I will lift mine up to feel its warmth. For now, at least, the rain washes away that terrible snow.
Green is usually my favorite color. But I think I'll slip my green garments to the back of the wardrobe for a few days at least. I still find it lovely, just not so on snow.

Not only is that a loss of my cut, but it's another failed bet. Stormed out for a drink, and the sharding snow stung on my bruises something awful.
Need to turn up some coin soon. This is a setback I sure as hell didn't need.

I have no personal projects planned and no intention to use the Commoners' Council as a means to promote my own interests. What I do intend is to use my own contacts, networks and resources to bring the needs of Arx's common folk to fruition. If a well has soured or a wall fallen, if there are shortages or desire for expansion, my strength lies in connecting the people capable of answering the need, and supporting them to make it a reality.
I listen, and I understand.
2. When you run into intransigent opposition - furious Peers, someone stonewalling you for their own political gain, injustices committed against you - how will you attempt to resolve these matters?
I also am very, very diplomatic! I've brought feuding nobility to the table and brokered peace or truces. I navigate bureaucratic mazes for others. I right wrongs, and heal, and improve. To be able to deploy these skills not just for the nobility but for those who were born to the same station as me is a joy. I've tried to do so, where I can, but this would certainly provide more opportunities.
3. What is it about you that should make us select you to represent our concerns over any of the other candidates?
The other candidates are all very strong, and very worthy. I can't argue that I'm a better prospect than any of them but whether I am voted in to take a seat at the Council or not, I'll continue to work to improve the lives of everyone I'm responsible for, the lives of everyone I meet.

Let it be said that I, Orathy Culler, aye, will speak with the voice of the people! I ain't scared of nobles and I sure shit ain't kissin inquisition arses like the Grayhopes be doin. If ya want a voice for the ills of our people, fer the Lowers 'n all the common born of the city, reckon ya should try me eh? There ain't no beatin no bushes with me aye. I be BLUNT as me fuckin stolen axe probably is.
Vote for me. Then we be having a real voice, one that ain't managed by no inquisitors 'n rich folk.

It suits you and barely expresses my appreciation for your tutelage.
Your wisdom and grace are also things I can only hope to achieve!

Took me a whole hour to get back on track.
This town, I swear, it keeps moving things around when I've got my back turned. Even Onida was confused.
