I have had so many letters flow into Darkwater Reach that I've had a horrible time keeping up with them all. If you have written and I haven't responded yet, I will most assuredly be getting back to you soon.

Know that I am honored by the generally sweet and welcoming way I've been greeted and that I am making it a point to write to everyone personally and thank them.

A quiet day, spent thinking and enjoying some quiet time. Followed by a fun discussion with my cousin Alban and Lady Liliana. The swinging was much appreciated, it is always lovely to have someone to push the swing while we are enjoying relaxing on it.

I have drawn a conclusion: I think about half of the Compact, in some way, works for Minister Rook.

My patrol has been in the City Center for the last several weeks. Dumpling and I have spent quite a lot of time watching and watching over the ebb and flow of goods and services. I have noted the comings and goings, the rise and fall of prices, jostling, haggling. It's as if I'm watching the life of Arvum flow - but instead of blood, it's silver.

The veins that blood flows on are roads. I'm resolved more than ever to make this Great Roads project a success. If you haven't heard of it - and you'd like to - please write a messenger. The project would benefit from contributors from literally every walk of life. Roads literally and figuratively stitch the Compact together.

I have a newfound respect and, perhaps, adoration for spiders upon learning they eat wasps. As well, I am glad the baby spiders have a home in which they might grow and not test out the denoted newfound respect I claim here.

Of course he will, because he's twisted that way...

Brothers. Can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em without being the first suspect...

The Voice of Halfshav
Vala of the Northlands
My Sister

Some short time ago she was tending to a great blight on the land. It was night and a mountain lioness tainted by the corruption lept from the shadows. I saw it, I dove, and down we went. Eventually, while I was being nearly mauled to death she put an arrow through its throat and Mirk rallied the soldiers to stab it before hauling it off me. It was very big.

I recount this story because while I may dive headlong into danger (and other things) for my family or due my own mistakes. My family is always there to see that it does not end in disaster.

Also for those curious she has not stabbed me or bludgeoned me with her new staff. I must be doing something right?

One of the consequences of language is the ability to express things that are true or false, is that it is also possible to be mistaken or to tell lies. Indeed, you might also almost say that the ability to tell lies is one of the characteristics that separate Men from beasts.

No one is capable of telling the truth who is not also capable of telling lies.

I embarked on this venture to learn the roots of my past. There are things that I discovered that caused me to drown in bottles of whiskey. Though, there is also light. I have also discovered other things that make me want to drink in celebration! Whiskey is good for all occasions! I will not write all these things here. I am still processing the vast bits of information that I have learned.

I had never before been to a Rite of Gloria, much less been part of one. Thus being able to do one with someone I highly admire and respect was a very real honor.

There is nothing quite like 6 yr old logic. Explaining why testing her home made wings from the tallest tree in the gardens was not a good idea was a practice in diplomacy, not a skill I am well versed in thus it took 3 hours and many promises of playing pirate and the princess with a picnic including a cake from her favorite cake shop. Keeping it to just that one cake was a mini adventure all its own.

Squirrels are actually remarkable creatures, I think I am becoming particularly fond of one specific squirrel in fact.

I think I will need to alter all of my clothing just so I have treats for her. And it frustrates her human, win/win.

Please tell Princess Nia that Uncle Edain is very proud of her for protecting the spiders. Because spiders eat wasps.

Fuck wasps.

I apologize for the expletive.

Updated my will in my blacks, which seems to be a thing I do every November.

I ask that upon my death, the Scholars release that entry to the Master of Questions.

Miranda -

Aye it is the little things.

I will keep your offer in mind however. Though I have a feeling Fecundo will enjoy that you offered upon my behalf.

The last few days have been a bit of a whirlwind. Not only did I finally follow my interest in Alchemy and get into the Apothcary college, but I opened my own shop in the Lower Boroughs. Pluvio will be a work in progress for a while, likely, but I hope the venture does well. I set the grand opening for two days from now. I hope I'm ready!

Living with 13 cats is always an adventure but recently they've been up to no good.

Courvousier brought me two large potatoes in the middle of the night from the kitchen counter.

Another has started trying to attack my tongue while I'm asleep.

Another hates it when I read aloud. He starts to look at me pleadingly, paces around, and meows insistently. He even climbs on top of the book and bites my wrists in protest.

Another passes wind like a grown man and the other day led me to believe it was a guest in my home.

Another licks the butter. (Never have toast in my home).

Finally, about a month ago (I was loathe to write about this at all) one ate my yarn, passed it, and continued to still chase it about the house as it was... you know where it was hanging from.

Maybe 13 is just too much.
