To all those who tended to my brother Rane during his recent accident, I offer the greatest of thanks. I believe that your help and care will significantly aid his recovery.

The Manor is feeling a little fuller now with four members of the Magnotta Family now under the roof of it.

Perhaps a family dinner would be a good thing again. I'll look into the logistics of one again.

Relationship Note on Lianne

I think back to when Lianne and I first thought of hosting the Evening of Complements, it makes me smile to think about how we thought the event might go. It of course was not quite at all the way we imagined... as few plans ever take place the way we think they might, do they? But that it was different was not at all a disappointment. The evening far exceeded many of the expectations we might have had. And truly, I wish to thank everyone who attended the night at the Eidolon Gallery, those who contributed to art through whatever medium they chose, and those who enjoyed the art displayed and performed. To see so many enjoy the beauty of cultural aspects warms a heart that has weighed heavy as of late.... so.... Thank you.

Thank you too for Master Brewer Venturo, for creating the fantastic brew, unique to our event only. It was, of course, delicious, and I hope everyone got to enjoy it... He provided art through the brew, and the spinning of a tale, all in the same night.

I hope too that people were able to see what we had aimed with the theme of the evening. Complements. That even if two things seem to be vastly different from one another, there is a place in the middle of differences where the two can meet, where one can complement the other, and vice versa. For myself, I must say, I find a certain exclusive beauty in such things that I cannot find anywhere else.

It's good to be back in Arx. Whether it'll be a brief or lasting visit is determined by the flow of coin to my purse. I'll enjoy it while it lasts though, that's the only way to live. You find yourself in a situation? May as well make the most of it.

Having your toes smacked with a hammer? You'll get an opportunity to learn a new way to dance! Entire family murdered? Sounds like a wonderful opportunity to meet and befriend your neighbors! Someone shot an arrow in your ass? Finders keepers, friend! Sounds like you've just got yourself an arrow to sell! Lost your hand in a duel-gone-wrong? Guess you're going to have the strongest left (or right) arm in all of Arvum!

I need to remember to get a set of manacles or at least some sturdy rope. Ain't really safe to have a potentially dangerous person following you back to your employer, hands free and fully capable of snatching up some club or something to bash your brains in. I'll have to ask around the city, see if there's an experienced hunter around. Need to get my research completed before I'm called to perform!

Thanks for your time, Scholar. You've been great!

Funds are running low. I should throw my name into the hat for some noteworthy performance. Preferably one that pays well. The tools of the trade aren't going to pay for themselves. I need props!

May Gild smile on me and those who aren't total assholes.

Is it a sin to dwell so much upon the fineries of luxury that are so beloved of a friend, and use that as a consolation to their absence? Am I mistaken in the making of all of this? I cannot help but feel as though the very approach of luxurious creations is faulted by timing, but we are still all creatures of beauty, creation, and wonder.

Those we lose to the viccisitudes of business and duty leave their loss like a torn, dark hole in a bright garden.

I cannot help but see it, and ache.

It's so exciting to see everyone's generosity and creativity when it comes to fundraising for the rebuilding of the Cathedral! And I know Sir Porter is working very, very hard, so hard that when I stopped by I honestly couldn't tell him and the other workers apart they were so covered in dust? But I'm quite sure that in the end the Cathedral will look even more glorious than it did before! And we'll all have an even deeper connection to it than we might have originally.

I cannot wait to see it finished!

I look at all the people in the city as they walk past. Some have recently lost someone and yet they continue on. They may not have a smile on their face, but they try to move on. They're being strong. They are picking up the pieces. Which is all you can do. Pick up the pieces one by one. Which it seems is what is happening. How amazing is that! To move through your grief. Though it still makes me so sad for them. And yet, in awe at how well the city is coming together. It's strength. And it's great! Sorry scholar, I'm RAMBLING AGAIN!

I was afraid to look upon the Cathedral when I heard of what had befallen it, and the awful deeds done there. As I helped break and clear the rubble, I tried to dwell upon what still stood. The bell tower, much of the walls, and many hands willing to tend to it. Even if it won't be again what it was, I've faith something good will be rebuilt around the bones of it.

The lemon juice and water at the Traders Tavern is top notch in the city of Arx.

I wrote about two weeks ago about how I'd been learning how to make nails with Dame Ida. At least, I think I wrote about that. I'd need to turn a few pages to get there and that seems like too much trouble since I'm in the midst of writing these words! At any rate, I've spent what little free time I've had not moving rubble, wandering around her forge. I started work on a breastplate of cupridium. Dame Ida isn't an armorsmith, so I hope she doesn't mind my tinkering. It's looking okay so far, my first grand experiment with something that isn't a nail. I think I might be a little obsessed.

Of course then I let Bree hit me a bunch of times and now it's full of dents. But I think I can hammer them out!

Mostly.

Maybe.

I went to look at paintings last night, scholar. Stop looking at me funny! I did! And it was sorta fun. I saw people I knew there and everything, and there were pieces I liked. Honest! Maybe I should find something for our House, to replace the stuffed turkey? Nah...I rather like the turkey..

Relationship Note on Branwen

Branwen is back! And she's already started teaching me with her wiseness. Wiseness is a word right? If it isn't, it should be. She's a wise woman, and I missed her a lot! I'm so glad to have her back, to have her teachings! She couldn't have come back at a better time..

Relationship Note on Aerwan

Losing you to circumstance hurts more than I can eloquently express in words, whether written or spoken. It might be indicative of the limits of my talents as an orator, or how much succor, counsel, laughter and comfort you have given me in the last few weeks. I pray that the Scholar forgives me for offering these clumsy words in lieu of the things I could not say.

Until we meet again.
