The Faith announced via the Dominus that the Eurusi trade is once more opened. I’m not sure who the Silver Sands are, but they feel it seems via trade that it brings peace and understanding. To a Vaevici, only war can bring peace. Peace paid for in bloodshed, or the threat of destruction so others might accept other terms to delay the inevitable should their heads dare to rise up.
The Tyde appointed lord Erasmus as minister of trade, although it came with a point made that anyone complaining would be appointed to a similar position and should they fail, there will be some sort of consequence. Responsibility and humility, power offered and lessons learned. I like that.
There’s another fundraiser for soldiers led by new Archlector Porter that are returning from the fog of war brought about near Pieros. I don’t understand the point of fundraising, the children of Sangris desire nothing more than to give their all so when they die they can find their place at the Temple of Pyros. Every single person united in our dogged pursuit of war and battling through the Caldera and beyond. Should they find themselves unable to do their original purpose due to taking wounds (be they civilian or military), don’t we take care of them and put them to work in a manner that gives them a new purpose yet still support Sangris? A difference perhaps between Arvum and Saffron in how we go about doing things trying to achieve a similar goal.
Baroness Calla is to wed lord Santi Malvici, bringing more allies for the Vaevici leadership’s dream of peace in the Caldera. Lord Santi will make a good partner and pillar, I look forward to seeing what both Baroness Calla and lord Santi do together and separately for Sangris and beyond.
Outside of the banns, sometimes there exists such differences between peoples that it feels one is between an immovable object against an unstoppable force. Beliefs held so strongly that it makes difficult for the very thing we ultimately desire in the other and ourselves, the opportunity to change. But I’m thankful for the opportunity others give me to learn about them and their cultures, even if they’d normally avoid such a gift.
Otherwise this week I'm seeking out theologists, I've questions about old stories of the Faith, legends and myths that the various domains and lands hold.

As long as the perspective is shifted the right amount, not too much or not at all. It all works out correctly in the end.

Relationship Note on Neve
Precious as you are
Even bright and cheery
underneath the stars
Met you at a tourney
Cheering for your friends
Life's about the journey
No matter where it ends

Relationship Note on Breccan
Endless and serene
Filled with countless emotion
Only in my dreams
And here we sit on this bench speaking of our life
You grab my hand, fingers curling
Even amongst the strife
Though I don't feel alone
With you by my side
Here the thread of friendship is sown
In my heart it will reside

"Malice delights to darken the souls of the ascendant."
"It is better to deserve a title than to have it."
"Those free from common fears acquire others."
And I have learned there is nothing more terrifying what is possible.

Relationship Note on Felicia
So if me doing my things ever thrust me into the Queen's embrace (again?), Felicia has the right to let my black journal bore her to tears. Though, let's face it, she's going before I do.

Still, it's been ten years now. A whole decade of my life calling Arx home. I put stars over my bed then, glass shards to show the constellations over Setarco in the summer, and I have stars over my bed now, a summer night in Nilanza painted upon the ceiling, a means of keeping my other homes close despite the infrequency of visits.
I was so curious then. I'd wanted to learn absolutely everything, to crack the Dream open and drink up all it had to offer. A recipe for drowning, surely. I've since learned how to pace myself, how to focus on what truly intrigues me and let the all the rest go. Perhaps not entirely. It does help to know who knows what, to keep company with those who pursue curiosities beyond my own. I'm still a Scholar, after all, though I never did finish my Discipleship. What seemed so important to me then is so unrecognizable now.
I never thought I'd marry, but my reasons for avoidance disappeared once I was given my title, my march. It took a couple years for my resolve to wear down as well, to realize what I had in Valerius. It's been a year already, and it feels as if I've changed more in the year since his death than possibly in all the nine which preceded it, but I know that's not true.
Yet, as I set my pen to this page and consider how to document those changes, it feels immodest. And unduly vulnerable. This isn't the forum for that. I've grown a great deal, done things I never thought I would. I've made heartbreaking mistakes. I've made friends and fell in love and built very real and tangible things.
I have made some very important choices and, on the whole, find I am pleased with them.
I have already set down what burdens I do not wish to carry into my next decade. I am pleased with the weight which remains.
