((Riddled with misspellings and such, due to illiteracy. This is the translated version.))

I finished decorating my shop today, and opened the doors for the first time.

Hanging the sigil of Jayus on the wall, and then opening the door to let in the fresh air of the square was quite the experience for me. It really made me feel how far I've come from begging for food on a Southport street corner. The Malvici have given me everything, with the aid of my skill, and Jayus.

I won't let any of those things down.

You get to pick the next party! I'll try to dress appropriately to the occasion. With shoes, even!

Relationship Note on Freja

If I find you in my bedchambers without my permission, I am leaving dead piranhas on your pillow.

You made a fine date, even if you dressed like a pincushion. Let's keep up that trend.

Party after party, murder after murder, attack after attack. I wish I could still go back to the days when this city was a boring little piece of the Compact. But it seems like walking in the street is enough to put your whole livelihood at risk. It gets the adrenaline pumping thinking about such things, but at the same time only reinforces the people's fear in what lurks around the corner.

Things playing in shadows are fucking with us constantly. It's damn annoying and dreary as anything to listen to every new story of death and betrayal. Dramatic, at least.

Bah, at least my mask won best in show.

Relationship Note on Calaudrin

I love Calaudrin Estardes as well, of course. I have devoted a rather embarrassing amount of ink to this subject already, but fortunately all of that is between me and Vellichor, and shall stay that way. For the masses I leave it at that, for it sings in my heart and requires no elaboration.

I am concerned that you're also writing about rashes, though. Especially in conjunction with were-rats and alleys in the Lower Boroughs. Please consult a Mercy about such things, for I want no part of it!

This is loving advice.

I've been holed up sick for nearly two weeks now.

Someone please send a physician willing to replace my fragile lungs. If I cough one more time, I will rip them out myself.

Aren't you supposed to be on my side?

I was there too, and he seemed to be doing alright..

Also, that's where we all first met I think. Killing plague rats. That's weird.

You'd be a fucking were-rat right now if it weren't for me.

Relationship Note on Calaudrin

Here's a terribly unvague journal entry to clear up any confusion people might have had.

Calaudrin Estardes was referring to me when he brought up threesomes. This is because Esoka and I had discussed them once upon a time, but he did not want to partake. Given his writing about rashes, I'm starting to think perhaps that was just as well. Maybe he was looking out for me. That would definitely be in the man's upstanding, oh-so-lawful character... not wanting to spread rashes to others.

I know he and I have had a rocky relationship these past months, but recently he wrapped his arms around me so very tightly, I know there are still deeper feelings inside him. Perhaps some day he will let them go and share them with everyone. Why can our passion not be sung throughout eternity in the archives?

I do wonder if his crotch is still sore after our time together in that alley.
(Okay, that last part is a bit vague, but people don't want to read *all* the details, now do they? Be honest.)

Relationship Note on Thena

Thena Grayhope is a terrible guard. Just absolutely one of the worst ones that I've ever had to train. She's lucky I didn't toss her over the walls during the siege or leave her in the tunnels with the rats.

That aside, she has my unwavering loyalty and support. I am convinced that she will flourish in her new role under Grandmaster Armel's tutelage. And if she thinks for one second that she'll see less of me after leaving the guard, she is sorely mistaken. I'm like one of those rashes that you just can't get to go away.

Relationship Note on Esoka

I love this woman.

And if I see any entries offering to join in on a threesome with us after this? I swear I will track you down.

You know who you are.

With what has taken place within the Inquisition, I'm left wondering if any organizations in Arx can be fully trusted. The Inquisition's internal troubles are being worked out, I trust in that, but how much damage did they do while they were here? I don't think this is an answer anyone has, but one we'll find out the hard way regardless.

Relationship Note on Narciso

Would've liked to know him better. Pleasure listening to him talk, pleasure listening to him spin mazes, figuring, no, hm, knowing there was something at the center. Long paths are wonderful when you don't know the destination. Would that he'd gotten a longer one this life.

I believe sometimes that the people of Arx do not fully comprehend the precarious nature of our current lives. The horde of death and demonic disposition just fought inside of the Palace. These creatures have been plotting our rot and decay for centuries. They are everywhere. No one is safe. Now is the time of axes and glory.

The people of the Mourning Isles are used to surviving within the hard crush of the margins. We thrive in it. And through the pressure we are forged harder and stronger. The fury of the Salt has been our proving grounds and we wait with baited breath and with vipers coiled in our bellies for the next turn of death's machinations.

Have to find my place in the world again. My previous place is no more. Duke Harald Grimhall took me in as a person of his House. Many should seek his council. His is wise. Although, he says spearing from horses is not a knightly thing. I thought all knights rode horses. The 1 silver novels I read as a lass must have been specialized.

Relationship Note on Victus

He's more tolerable than most. Perhaps even less weird than originally thought. Was considering he might be difficult with his whole wanting looking at. It's not terrible. It helps he isn't exactly unappealing.

Leave blank if this journal is not a relationship
