Truly, some of the most fortuitous events can spring out of some of the most strange occurrences - something I should expect by now.

Relationship Note on Eilonwy

Eilonwy Thunderoak a prodigal voice of House Blackwood. She is young but brutal honesty can take a person far. We will see what my newest protege can accomplish. In the oldest of prodigal tradition what one strives for is a mark of character and civility, traits held high by the Compact.

The requests in the classifieds are just getting more and more eclectic. I like it.

Relationship Note on Reigna

We're talking now? How very interesting. I hope you've been well, Countess Keaton, and I am flattered that my idle musings have caught your notice. Is that play going well?

I was not aware that I said that they were?

Asking the same question in multiple ways is really only an acceptable tactic if the person you are asking is not understanding. Otherwise one might think that you are trying to influence the answers you receive.

I dreamt I stood before a table carved from gleaming stygian. This great table stretched on and on until it was wrapped in shadows. The chairs were carved of the purest iridescite and they sat empty. Yet I stood to the left at the head of the table, pouring wine into a goblet of gold until it overflowed and ran like a river of blood across the shining black surface of the table.

Relationship Note on Reigna

"Is it ever acceptable to lie? Is it better to be polite or to express what you really think of the actions and beliefs of someone else?"

These two questions aren't really the same thing.

For the record, Bliss, Luca, Tikva, and I are all in cahoots.

Just in case we were all worried about the Very Serious Merits of Dueling again.

Relationship Note on Ainsley

I know only too well your anxieties, your Highness. I feel them as well. Wanting to protect them, each and every one. But the best thing we can give them is a place to be loved. We have heard them. Listened, taken down the lists. Hopefully their burdens are fewer, even if our shoulders are more bowed.

Know you have my deepest respect and admiration.

The children are ready for homes, they would even like to have homes... families. It would be cruel of me to keep them still-- I can't devote, forever, the amount of time they need. And my own children are not restful companions for children who need a lot of human attention, but gentle... oh so gentle and quietly calm attention.

But gods as my witnesses, these children will break me. Giving them over into the care of others...

I must do it, for their well being.

But I don't like it one bit.

Relationship Note on Fairen

I should hope that one never need find out if I were wearing undergarments or not, but certainly with such danger of Arx wide exposure, were I in fact brave enough to wear such a fashionable garment, I would hope I would have equally fashionable underclothes.

Relationship Note on Reigna

An excellent suggestion Countess! Indeed it would keep the sheet firmly settled against the body however, unless it is a particularly large sheet draped with far more skill that I believe I possess, and true there might be one truly skilled in bedsheet draping whom I have not yet met, or have met and simply are unaware of this previously undeclared but significant skill, it would show far more of my person than I think the rest of Arx could take.

I fear I will never wear a sheet with as much skill as Prince Luca managed to display.

I would hope undergarments are also a part of the consideration for this attire. In case of a stiff breeze.

Relationship Note on Coraline

The application of a belt in a contrasting color would secure the seasilk drape in place to ensure proper modesty, your highness.

Relationship Note on Luca

An excellent suggestion however, one good stiff breeze and it would no longer be so modest. I fear I must shy away from this very fashion forward fashion and instead seek something a little less...exciting. However should you wish to model such fashions I hear that there is a great deal of prestige to be garnered!

I do agree with the seasilk though, that is most certainly very chic.

Relationship Note on Pasquale

I'm not sure what to make of my kin-by-oath, Pasquale. A good man, to be sure, and the best possible choice to be made Voice. I just think I should get to know him better, before my tongue--or my journal!--get me into trouble.

(Let's be honest. I'll get into trouble regardless... I'll try hard not to, though! Either with him or anyone else, promise.)

Relationship Note on Coraline

I am a big supporter of the bedsheet as a matter of fashion. So close to a dress, yet so far away. You never look as if you are trying too hard, but you still get to retain your modesty. And if you wear it in seasilk? The height of luxury, I can assure you of this.

Don't take my word for it. Go ahead, try it out.

Some of the upcoming events look very interesting. Skirt and Gown Night, and the Tea Talk, especially perk my interest.

I hope I can make it to one of them, if not both!
