It was a tremendous honor to recognize the Lord Commander Dayne Valardin in the Hall of Heroes last night, revealing his statue and plaque. We were treated to a remembrance from his ancestral family, the Valardin. And even the Nox'alfar delegation spoke to remember the knight of great honor.

I bid all to visit the statue, to learn its lessons, and to employ them in their lives.

You know, one can never know what sort of crazy a person can be until they open their mouth. If you just sit back and listen, one can hear a lot of things. Sometimes those things one may wish they never heard. I recently heard some crazy talk and decided to get involved. I was rewarded with a busted face. Don't worry, I won't forget.

Relationship Note on Miranda

Lady Miranda.

Legate Ailith introduced me to sweet ginger candies and mint tied in my handkerchiefs. it certainly helped with the nausea. Well some.

Also, better to be a whale than a puffer fish.

Relationship Note on Veronica

Lady Veronica was the first of House Keaton that I actually met. My master had already been dead by the time I returned home to Oakhaven. I must admit, as soon as I met her I knew that the Keatons, the House that governed my home, were going to be my masters from this day 'til my last. We've had many misadventures since then, and now that I'm in the capital perhaps I can try and temper her boldness a little. That's more important (though not by much) than getting her to stop calling me Sir Paddy.

I've been in Arx a few days now and I'm still overwhelmed by how large the city is. I come from humble beginnings and this is so expansive. The Marquessa was every bit as beautiful as the stories say, and of course Lady Veronica was there to greet me. It has been good seeing her again. There's already an ache in my heart from being so far from Oakhaven. Still, despite it all, the ruling Keatons are here in Arx, and where they go, so shall I.

Relationship Note on Lisebet

If you hear anything about the Farshaw gates being locked against twin terrors, I had nothing to do with it!

Nothing to see here except an uncle planning how best to spoil them.

Today was the unveiling of Dayne Valardin's statue. I would call it more a wake for the great man. The Templars did well by the Lord Commander with the ceremony. I took care to let them know how fine they had done, particularly in bringing in the Nox'alfar to also take part. It was the right thing to do and a proper gesture of peacemaking, all said. It shows the healing power of Gloria's mercy and goodness. Even after this tragedy, we can find a way to stand together and make our world better. It's no wonder that Katryn takes such inspiration from her work each day.

Relationship Note on Colette

Twice, you put me on my back. Twice, I politely smiled, and when you left, was filled with regrets and disbelief. I watched you, after that. Closely. The way you move, the way you flow and weave, and exploit your opponent's body. The way you pick them apart, leaving them wondering what on earth happened.

This time, I put you on your back, and though I find myself pleased with the outcome, I remain in disbelief. I know when my strikes are hitting proper. I've been at this quite some time, and you just kept coming back for more, like a woman possessed. The only other person I've seen stay up on their feet so long past their limit is my own self, so it's with nothing but with respect that I proclaim you an ally and a rival, little Laurent.

I look forward to learning from one another, speaking through words and fists alike.

Best of five?

Good to have you in the city with me, Sir Paddy.

I shall enjoy showing you around doubly since it means finally exploring more thoroughly myself.

Cady, my darling...

I'm not sure I'm worried about being fat as a whale...

But this nausea? I could do without.

At least the cranky has been put on hold awhile.

Family is so very important to me.

It always has been.

Thank you, dear Cousin, for seeing after me.

Such is why you are one of my favorites.

I needed several hours of peace and quiet to catch up on a good book, delightful company and fine Southport Red. Guidio was off delivering my missives while Johannes was assigned to the task of ensuring a Lady with child was cared for.

Peace and quiet. Well, that is, until the company came by. Johannes seemed to have returned quite pleased, I shall work on the assumption that is that a task well done is a task to be proud of. Taught him that myself.

I will miss Josephine as I miss many others, but I will have a reminder. As I sat there in the Shrine of Jayus, contemplating our friendship and thinking on her, a peculiar thing happened. The earcuff I wear came loose.

I caught it, but as I did so it caught some of the light trickling into the room. Such that the starstuff it is made out of seemed to shimmer.

It could have been nothing more than a fluke. Funny things are given meaning when we want to find meaning. I take this message from it, though. That earcuff holds more story to it than the one I had in my empty head when she made it for me.

Relationship Note on Josephine

Days on and her name continues to fill the whites.

A city grieves.

But remember, none need grieve alone.

Our Queen's shrine is never empty and Her Harlequins are always at hand to counsel those who need a moment or a minute or an hour or however much of our time is needed to ease your pain.

We, too, are in mourning.

More than a year has gone by since my return to Arx and I did not notice.

A year spent mourning the dead and meeting the living. A year of change. A year of joy and sorrow.

So much has changed in that year. So little has changed. They've been dead for more than a year. I've lived for yet another.

Relationship Note on Josephine

I have learned that grief is just another word for love.

Sitting here, re-reading the letter you left me, wearing Pena's headdress, smelling the vial of your perfume... it's almost as if you are still here. And then I look at the dragonweep and I feel an unbearable, unspeakable sadness.

"A stone that acts as a memory of love lost, and is shed in the hope that the one lost may one day find it, remember, and return."

You would leave me that.

Do not fear. I will never forget.
