How do you describe the feeling of having opened up a part of yourself that you'd previously kept securely shut? Cracking the door open enough to allow the light inside to spill out? I find that there's something oddly terrifying about it, but it comes with a rush and a desire to keep going back to it. To pry the door open just a little further and see what else might be in there. And is there a reason we haven't danced yet? Or is it just that everything else becomes so consuming?

Traditionalists, I wish they would be open to reviewing such and understanding what is wrong.

Purple Moonlight given form
Soft and free as mist
Eyes are emerald kissed
And contained within a storm

Our path.

We walk it every moment. We make decisions from the moment that we open our eyes and these alter our path and what comes of it. I have always tried to have a respect for the choices people make. I try to remove my bias from them to just accept a choice is a choice. It is not bad. It is not good. Merely a choice. There is always a reaction to that choice which cannot be ignored.

I was musing about the people we meet on our paths. We have people that have become friends, lovers, family, enemies, and everything in between. We interact with people and sometimes make shared choices. It is okay to love a person and not understand the choices they make. It is okay to say good-bye to someone as well. Sometimes the people on our paths are just there for a moment. They are to assist with something, they are to teach us something, and they are a spark not an endless flame in our lives. This, too, is okay.

It is okay to love someone fiercely, so very fiercely and still walk away. It is okay not to like someone for the choices they have made, but we cannot take away their ability to make the choices. There is nothing really pointed to this musing today. It is just people. I have been thinking about people lately. The ones that stay through everything and the ones that were just a burst of brightness for a few moments.

Relationship Note on Venturo

If there is one thing I might say about my protege's luck, it is that he's fortunate I did not press him about the puppy. I heard there was a puppy rescued from that fire, Venturo, and yet the tower remains without. Tell me, at least, that it went to a good home?

Relationship Note on Khanne

In the way that the moon follows the sun, so have Khanne and I tread the same ground and cared for the same people over the past nine years. We were not fast friends. Instead, we skirted the periphery of each other's lives for a long while, our paths intermittently crossing. With time, we were able to look back and see how our paths had woven together, what friendship had grown without our noticing.

When I have hidden from the world for too long, it is so often Khanne who draws me back out, accompanying me to a party or a poetry reading or simply a walk through the gardens. When I am afraid of getting too excited over things which might not work out, she reminds me to celebrate that moment of hope and possibility, whatever will come. She is my anchor, my complement and my dearest friend.

I am so exceedingly pleased with how well our utterly indulgent night went. Such a selfish thing, in truth, all to meet interesting people. You did not disappoint, Arx. Thank you.

Prince Niklas has given me an idea. How many strings do lutes usually have? Can they have more strings than that? What's the maximum number of strings? At what point is it just too much string? Has anyone found that point?

Who doesn't believe in the Mother of Beginnings and Queen of Endings?! I would speak with them too! Though I'm not a Deathspeaker, just the regular kind of speaker. Well, not really a SPEAKER-speaker, just...one who speaks.

Relationship Note on Ravna

I daresay, you can't disappear yet... I still owe you that drink and we've so very much to discuss! Don't leave promised liquor to languish unimbibed and forgotten, that's practically abusive!

Relationship Note on Tanith

Tanith! I meant to surprise you but I can't wait another moment: I'm here. Can you believe it? I have so much to tell you. Where are you? I heard you'd be at
the Murder, but I can't find it.

That probably makes me in need of direction. Ha! But truly, tell me when I can visit.

What? Yes, Scholar. Just so. You are a good man. Don't let them say otherwise.

The Salacious Baker has done it again. The Red Velvet Oozing cake at the Physician's Fundraiser is one to be discussed for centuries.

Not that it's not a wonder, the things available here in this vast city, but larger events oft make me miss the solitude of being in the forests.

Resolute, you're fortunate for the excuse to be at home waiting to see what treats I bring you.

I love Arx, but I think I'd like to take a trip out of the city soon and see some different scenery. It's been too long since I went sailing. I hope this possibility of war doesn't make it too difficult...

Relationship Note on Tesha

Thank you to Tesha for passing on the Highhill puppies to their home.

And also thank you to Katryn for showing me the basics of dog training. I'll probably need a little more training myself if I'm going to be leading the pack, but it's all part of running the house.

Many plans to be made and still so much work to be done. I work to broaden the reach of our collective here in the city, to meet with people and garner opinions and read the populace; I say without self-pity that there are many who wish us gone and many that welcome us. Such is the state of a city at war. While it makes my job harder, it is still no less fulfilling.

I would like to thank all of those who have assisted myself and House Magnotta in the recent expansion of it's influence across Cyrto Major and now significantly controls the island, including former enemies in the form the Pol of the Great Bay.
Now will be the time for solidifying the gains made, and expanding the docks on both the north (Fort Magnotta) and the south (Cyrto Keys). Both will be vital for further excursions, trade and military security.
