The time has come, and I've made it official. The darling Svana Grayhope is my protege. Her talent as a seamstress is wonderful; she works with leather and alchemy, too, and more than that, well. She's a wondrous mother, and a loving and supportive companion. I adore her, and I'm thrilled to have her and make our relationship formal in this way. I can't wait to see what great things the future holds for her - and what role I can take in fostering her many talents.

Then the lessons themselves with Olivian and Kaia. Was so good to see so many come to learn the basic box steps for a waltz. Also to dance with Caprice who is quite the experienced dancer.
Package arriving, outfits for Kaia and I to match for the Grayson Ball itself. I believe they were Midwinter's Tease and Midwinter's Embrace? Well the Ball itself was such fun. Possibly one of my favourites with the nannies paid extra so we could stay for the after party after heading outside ourselves. Oh and to dance with Measure Cufre, at last, introducing her to the one who wears the engagement gift with such pride.
Social few days. Now to the archives.

Indeed, I am no by any means a lily-white specimen. I've done few things that might raise a brow or two. Shocking, I know. But always for a good cause, of course.
Unfortunately, there are times that this code I live by runs counter to my desires. Still, as frustrating as it is, I wouldn't change it. It makes me who I am. It allows me to live with myself.

It wasn't used to receiving gifts.. I'm probably terrible at it. It wasn't until coming back to Arx that I really appreciated the gesture.
Lately, I have been gifted some extraordinary things. A painting of Savio and I, a spoon necklace, dirt perfume, and a fox taxidermy piece. These are things that I wouldn't have considered ever buying for myself. I owe thanks to Egon and Zyx.
But then looking back, I received gifts of rum and whiskey, a flask, clothes, and even a cat!!
If I didn't appreciate it properly, I do. I truly do. It humbles me that people would think of me enough to do this.

Storming the beach was a nightmare all itself. Savio and I didn't make it off the boat before we were struck by arrows that if a little right or left... would have ended us.
I used to think war was not necessary, that it was pointless. But then I realized if I sat back and did nothing, then I'm no better than a Thrall. We have choice to fight for our continued freedom and as soon as we stop fighting, we give the power of choice to someone who will choose for us.
I do not want to live with someone else making my choices.
I fought and it was my blade that killed the one, a false Queen, who would have sacrificed me for her gain and taken away my choice with her compulsion. I would do it again, to keep my choice alive.

The other news that I'm very excited about is the fact that Softest Whisper Anisha is finally my patron, and I her protege. It is something that we have both wanted for a good long while, but hasn't happened due to various circumstances and timing not being right. I have long been supplementing her closet and jewelry box, and her walls, and... now I get to officially be her pride and joy. I'm so happy.
In celebration, I will be stocking the Silver Lining with matching earrings and necklaces sometime in the future.

I wore one of Felicia's old gowns, but believe me, it was not without its cost. I made a right fool of myself. So this is important to note: always, always take the time to hem skirts that are made for someone taller than you.
I hate hemming.
But this once, I see it as entirely worth it.

To House Vaevici; Baroness Calla and Lord Titus
To my Cousins; Lady Andromeda the Sword of Tremorus, Lord Remus the Vice-General of the Grand Tribunal, and Cerelia Pontelaeus, Born of the Sea
To my Brother; Giorgio Pontelaeus, the Merchant Prince of Tremorus
and to the other half of my heart, Lord Orland Amadeo, Voice of his House
As Voice of the People of Tremorus, on behalf of them and as one of them, I give you my thanks. This gratitude is more than I can express; language founders in such seas.
We have seen done what we set out to achieve. This victory belongs to you, its glory, its spoils, and Mount Arakkas and her people will not forget you. They will sing of you for generations to come, and long after you are dust, your names will be the songs of legend.

I was gifted two pieces of star iron by Princess Ophelia, and had one of them made into a star pendant with an amber in the center. I am not much for wearing baubles but this pendant is very nice. I believe her highness will be pleased with what was made from her gift.

I learned some truths on my lastest expedition. Now, I need to put those truths into action, and talk to a few people, no matter how unpopular some ideas might be. I fear it will be an uphill battle and words will may fall on deaf ears. But that's the least of my fears. My worst fears are that it will just simply lead to inaction, altogether. Therein will lie ruin.
All the same, I am a person of action. I will do what I must to see things through as I can, as I always do.
I now have more than a few missives to pen. It's time to get to work.

Relationship Note on Lasha
The seas set ablaze by ships clustered too close together in the heat of the battle that was raging on.
Both reds and oranges set atop of a pitch billowing black filling the view.
A spray of red, not from the sea, but from the decks upon which I stood.
Watching sailors dive for cover, believing safety to be found in the waters below versus to stay upon the upper panels and surrender.
A sharp pain brought me back to the moment.
The noises flooding back in, mistaking a scream for laughter...
or maybe that was me...
My strength to continue will never falter. Despite those around me that love and care for me.
I'm never in the right state of mind. My stubbornness..
Watching the horizon today, I was reminded of the beauty that is always around us.
From my view, a painting of deep dark blues lashing with white capped spray so strong that it was both felt and smelled from meters away. Washing away the scent of death merely inches away. Bodies lain atop another, the living diving for safety only to be greeted by another lashing. One of a bright and intense heat bringing colors only seen upon the best sunsets, or during war.
Today I was reminded of my love of this moment. The one that has kept me in this position for as long as I have been here. As I keep getting up. I keep coming back.
And I will fight to come back each time.
