Relationship Note on Estaban

Another sleepless night passes by and my thoughts turn to my late husband. Hard to believe he has been gone over five years now. Five years we have struggled without his guidance save for what remembered we spoke of during the brief time we had before he was killed at war in 1008. The twins are thriving, making new friends and they point out Esta's statue in the garden to them and I find them sometimes just loooking at Esta's portrait. It is regretful that they can't see his smirky grin or enjoy his sense of humor or feel the security of his firm handling of duty. I'm doing the best I can for them. Lord Vomis is still coming to spend time with me once a week though primarily is staying with Duke Hadrian who Baron Eos made his first liar. The bond between them is close. I wonder what the future will bring to him, to us.

Relationship Note on Porter

Princess Helena won an intense drinking game, I'm told, and dedicated part of her speech to me. For that, I received a very purple robe. I'm not sure it's my color, but I think I'm going to wear it around the shop. Or display it on that dog statue I generally avoid since it mysteriously appeared in the shop one day some years ago. It's too divine to just put in a chest where no one will get to see the magnificence of it.

The Indominatable!

Lucene chose the name and while perhaps it's not what I would have chosen, I gave her free reign and in the end, I quite like it. It's so strange to think that back in Caith, Armani is likely standing in a dinghy and her face pressed to it's brand new hull and trying to hug it. As if the ship might hug her back.

Is a caraval a ship? I would almost laugh and say that the Caraval can fit my entire county into it. And now, now we're going to have to see to shipyards and ports big and deep enough to repair her, and repair others. Oh goodness this is something to celebrate.

I'll have to slip over to Keaton again and rest my feet in the creek or sneak over and pilfer a muffin from their kitchen and sit in the gardens and read. There's a bookcase they leave in the garden. I shudder to think what happens when it rains, but regardless, I have found myself stealing over there to read in the shade when I have spare time.

The indominatable. Better than the lucky coin which is what I likely would have named it. I wonder what Armani wowuld have named it. Coin well spent in tandem with the Archduchess. Most certainly.

My birthday is soon, it feels so strange thinking on how I will be another year older, and looking back over just this past year and all the things I have done and accomplished. I think the biggest ones are becoming a Baroness, and a mother. And then I think of the future and all that it holds not just for me, but my Barony, and my family. And the compact too.

There are so many shops here in the city! It is amazing! Sadly, I was not able to find any new clothes for myself. I'm hopeful that perhaps I will get a response to my classified, looking for a tailor that would be willing to work with me, and create some new clothing. Which I would be happy to show off at any gatherings, or parties.

I am so excited to finally be here in Arx, after all the letters my sisters have sent me about it, over the past years. And of course the stories that we have heard here in Bastion about Arx and all that happens here. I look forward to meeting more of my family, my various cousins, I have not gotten to meet yet. As well as the chance to make so many new friends.

Some have said that the world looks different once the weight of a title sits upon your shoulders. I still only see the work that needs to be done.

Well I'm certainly not the best of tailors, but I'm glad the efforts of the Crafters Guild to provide clothes to those in need in the Lowers had favorable results.

How happy I am for our new Commoners Council!

Made up of so many friends and those near to me.

You will do great things for the Compact!

Relationship Note on Rorik

I have never seen a less graceful spider in my entire life, and I am probably a better person for it.

A few months ago, Rorik and I decided to throw a party across our ships. Well, we finally held it and it was a great deal of fun. Rorik had a bunch of robes made up and I had a pair of ridiculous trophies commissioned. And it went over great. Good night. Quite a bit of a hangover.

Phew, it's a good thing that Valerian found that creaking noise. JUST IN TIME.

It looks like we're going to have some robes to send out in the mail. I have some ideas, don't worry.

Relationship Note on Niklas

For some reason, I always seem to come in second place in whatever competition I seem to enter. Usually, this is due to Prince Niklas also entering the competition and not winning at all. You are welcome for that second place victory, prince Niklas. You are welcome!

It has been a pleasure, however, to support the establishment of House Wyvernheart. It will serve Chevalle well to have the friendship of such stout-hearted people.

I did attend that opening of the Stormbird's Roost along with most of Arx it seemed! The place was quite lovely and had that exotic sort of scent to it that nonetheless made my mouth water. While I declined some of the more...adventurous aspects of the menu, I did quite enjoy the humus and flat bread selection! And the wines were quite lovely! I would recommend it to anyone that wanted to learn a little more about Eurusi cuisine in a lovely setting!

I cannot wait to see the Blackrose Theatre lit up again and all the seats full.

I cannot wait.
