As the proclamation stated, Corban and I are no longer wed, though I wish him nothing but fortune in the future. Our Houses remain steadfast allies, and the ties of fealty are as strong as ever.

I appreciate deeply all the booze and condolences.
The booze especially.

Gentle Readers,

I decided perhaps I should take a break and spend a bit of time writing in the whites. Plus it is so nice and cool in here on such a warm day.

Today was a lovely day of many gifts. It was nice to see so many smiles as I went about town. Then, I received lovely gifts from Monique and Dominique that made me smile as well. Despite my father's grumpiness regarding the occasion, I even heard from some of the servants that he received a gift. It would have been amusing to see his face when he received it!

I also had a very helpful lesson in Diplomacy from Margerie. I haven't seen her in so long, but it was nice to catch up once more. And it was nice to meet her nieces as well. I look forward to getting to know all of them better.

On a sour note, Tobias has apparently gone missing, or maybe he left again who knows, and now father is putting out a bounty... I worry about where all of that will lead. I can't help but miss the little brother I knew as a child though. Yet I know only a little about the man he is now.

Anyway, that is enough for one day and I should be getting back to my errands.

Farewell for now!
M. Simone Greenmarch

Oh, who doesn't love a wedding? It was just glorious - and inspiring - and, and, and -- no. Who am I kidding, Scholars?

Honestly, I intend on staying a stray. ( Although. I would be one for a wild and torrid affair.

Only the reckless need apply. )

I regret that I was not able to send out gifts to everyone in my life who deserves one - time rather got away from me, and I was only able to send out a fraction. Still, I hope that the gifts I was able to send out were, in some way, well received.

This was a charming idea, and much regard for Princess Tikva to think of it.

Relationship Note on Norwood

I am officially a squire! I honestly never thought I would get this far, and my deepest thanks go to my liege, Count Kael Keaton, and Sir Norwood Clement. I cannot imagine a better knight to lead me on my proper path.

Increasingly I find I'm having to divide my time in ever more fine increments. I think, soon, I'm going to need to settle and determine where my efforts are best served, and what must be sacrificed if I'm to achieve all that I need to in this lifetime. On one hand, what deserves and shall receive my attention is obvious, on the other hand I find myself pondering where I can eke more time out of the day for frivolous distractions.

Today, though, I oversaw the finishing touches on some gifts for cherished friends, and it was worth every indulgent moment of idleness to witness.

Just about everyone I've met in this city so far has been... nice. It's odd, given the misconceptions my parents put in my head before I trekked over this way. I've written to them, and they wrote back, saying they're happy for me and my newfound success. I hope I can keep my momentum going. My skills as both a clothier and a woodworker are in high demand, and I intend to improve those skills before focusing on other things. I think that will give me the income I need to pursue the knowledge I crave. Finding a patron would also be quite nice, considering the doors that would open.

Oh, and I got a cat! The old building I rented has mice, and Ashes (the cat's name) is a mouser. She won't eat the dirty things, though. Just leaves them by my workbench and ducks her head for scratches, which I happily give. If only I could pay an actual person-assistant in scratches. Hmm.

Scratch that! I just got a gift so as not to be made a liar, I remove my earlier statement.

It's okay. I didn't get any gifts either. So you are not alone in your giftless status.

Marra may steal the gift for herself. I may place it next to the cushion on my mantle reserved for our mutual friend.

Relationship Note on Merek

I was most surprised, though highly appreciative, to receive Sir Merek's gift of vanilla cream coffee. Perhaps he saw my journal regarding tea? Many who delight in tea seem to abhor coffee and vice versa, but I have no such tendency. I enjoy a warm drink of any nature: tea, coffee, cider, cocoa... By the scent, I can tell I will enjoy this flavorful brew. Many thanks, Sir Merek.

I must confess, I had thought this holiday a fanciful contrivance--no offense to the organizers--and have not sent any gifts myself... Perhaps I should make this right, somehow.

Relationship Note on Renato

My cousin has come to Arx from the City of Setarco. He's a Champion of the Champions, and it seems like he wishes to make a name for himself here. I'll endeavor to do all my best for my cousin, and I ask all of my friends to welcome him to the city when they can.
