The results of my experiment are in: the little nagging feeling does, in fact, go away when I devote myself to my heir-ish duties. Plus, as it happens, it hasn't been so bad. Thus far it's mostly involved talking to people, which is practically my favorite pastime. Maybe I can find a way to serve my House and myself, afterall.

Well it's been a couple of days so now I'm able to sit down and write.

I'm back in Arx. I don't really know how I got back here but....I'm here. Archduchess Eleyna was so kind to give me a room....

Let's see if I can manage to stay out of trouble long enough to get my bearings.

How do you comfort someone who is living your nightmare?

What do you do?

What do you say?

There is something to be said for time spent. Priorities become that much clearer. What is and is not important, cast in sharp relief. I feel lighter.

I really really really hope they are wrong.
Really.

Relationship Note on Kael

I have come to understand that my dear husband possesses some incredible protective barrier that blocks any and all of my attempts to hit him with my staff. I do not have a reciprocal shield. Despite being close to the width of a handsomely muscled barn door he also possesses the speed of one of our hounds. This is getting embarrassing. The only time I managed to score a glancing blow was when he was standing on one foot, flapping his arms to make Aeryn laugh. Clearly I need to sacrifice some of my reading time to more physical pursuits.

Relationship Note on Margerie

It would indeed be momentous enough.

I am sure that a donation plate could be passed around and proceeds directed toward the purchase of more debts even, at the event were it to happen. A great many would pay to see such.

Relationship Note on Orazio

I have not met the gentlemen in question, but if it would be momentous enough to draw a crowd, I'm sure the cost of admissions could be donated to the charities of their choices to benefit the Compact and its people.

That said, let us all hope that the terms of said will do not have to be carried out for a good while yet.

Relationship Note on Aleksei

I will personally ensure that, however, if such a proviso is included in the High Lord's will, it will be enforced.

I might charge admission, as well. I wonder if we could rent out the Assembly for it?

That is a _totally unfair thing to include in a will._

Yes, I'm getting married.

No, that isn't a misprint.

No, I'm not pregnant.

Gods, people. I'm the daughter of a duchess and a member of a major house. Marriage is just one more duty to Southport.

Neither chance nor fate - my house words make me so damn proud.

Shit happens, we deal with it. We call on friends and allies, we put ourselves into danger, we think, we plan, we fight.

Our men are eaten and we rally loyal friends and veterans to our side. An army sits at my doorstep and we, unafraid and unashamed, call on those who would help us. And we have bested them without ever firing an arrow or drawing a damned sword. By showing them our power isn't just military, it's strategy. We're not just thugs with swords. We show compassion to the weak and strength to the strong.

Everyone in Malvici and our friends and allies - married into or out of the house, vassals, and our trusted friends... I am so fucking proud of you.

Now to continue the subtle fight in the shadows. Against the shadows.

Relationship Note on Merek

We have yet to meet, but an opinion from a stranger: I confess a weakness for the blood orange tea at the Mercier: particularly tart and bracing, a challenging cup, but worth the effort to appreciate its depth. If you can brew a coffee of similar character, I will be the first at your door, wherever that may be.

I didn't write about my Rite to Gloria, did I? Well, let me do that! I fought Prince Galen Thrax, and it was a good fight. The guy can take a beating. Had good turn out and people seemed to enjoy it (but not much cheering for me). And I did a Rite to Jayus as well. For a guy who claims to not be that into religion I sure do a lot of rites. Which is amusing because Mae and Archlector Aleksei both tried to get me to join their respective discipleships, not yet, though! I ain't ready to become any priest.

Relationship Note on Serafine

She is a pearl of the highest order, dear Princess Velenosa. It will be a lucky man who stands with her as she guides Maelstrom, the Mourning Isles and moves side by side with the rest of the Compact to guide Arvum together in the future.
