This, Scholar? It's for as many of you as can get a piece at lunchtime. It's a Duplicitous Tart. My wife thinks she has it almost perfect, and is looking to hear what you all think of it before she starts selling them at the bakery.

Please, if you'd be so kind. It feels as though I've eaten little other than Duplicitous Tarts over the last couple of weeks, and sometimes a man just wants some meat of unidentified origin on a stick. Oh, I thought you weren't going to write that. Ah well. So much for that plan. I love you, Tanith, when you read this, and I'm sorry I couldn't face the last of the Tarts. It turns out I can actually have too much of a good thing. I know, I'm as shocked as you are.

Relationship Note on Macario

My goodness. Who told you I am chased by demons? Or is this simply a very clever metaphor for how quickly I sometimes have to leave to attend to my duties, or perhaps you refer to demons of a more intangible sort? In any case, I hope someone will inform the demons they are meant to be chasing me, they've been quite lax in their duties. On second thought, perhaps do not.

I'm thinking of taking one step forward in doing some soul-searching and really figuring out 'who' I am. I know the winds will guide me in the right direction.

The Race Across Arx may have had small attendance, but I do believe that everyone in attendance enjoyed themselves, and that is what matters!

I need to make sure that I am partners with Princess Denica Thrax whenever there is some kind of competition. She always ends up on the winning team...

I had a lot of fun at Race Across Arx this past week!

The riddles were challenging, I saw lots of the city, got a good work-out and 'Blades and Brushes' came in second!

I did break a harp though, oops, may need to send some silver over for that one...

But let's not HARP on it!

After completing a rather inspiring commission, my thoughts wandered to the approaching winter. I even made some hot chocolate to help the mood and ended up sketching up a design inspired by the season. Just a handful of daggers ended up in the shop, for now, but maybe I'll so more in the next week or so. Mostly, I wanted something new out there and then to retreat to more hot chocolate and a quiet evening.

I hope with all my heart that the fundraiser hosted by the Ambassador Bahiya'al'mathali of the Eurusi Consulate in partnership with the Princes Kenjay of Redrain and Patrizio of Pravus at the Hart goes well.

It is my greatest hope that all fight true and well, that all involved are delighted, and that the fundraising is so successful that more than first thought are able to be helped to a better life in their new home.

I am so honoured that my Hart is home to such good things.

Our son, Jorah, turned four this autumn. It seems like the world was an entirely different place when he came into the world, and I marvel at how it feels incredibly long ago and yet went far too quickly. It made me glance out the window and consider all that has been done in that time. The wars, the triumphs, the losses, and the gains - both for myself and House Redrain. I would not have thought I would be a markedly different person after just four years, and I wonder if four-years-from-now me will feel the same.

Softest Whisper, I know not of the demons that chase you, but you ride ahead of the storm with reverence. Our paths only cross casually, but each time they do, I learn something new.

Relationship Note on Gio

Over the weekend, the apprentice whisper provided fortune telling in the form of cards. He claims there is now divine entity whispering in his ear, and I believe him, but the storytelling is where the craft is at and he tells quite the story. Thank you for the entertainment.

I realize the reputation the Grayhopes have but that success doesn't come with hard work. I've been really nailing it lately and so the boss rewarded me for all my effort. Those that know how to get things done know to reach us, those that don't...well. You know how that goes.

I had the privlege of participating in a delightful Race Across Arx event organized by Minister Rook Champagne and Guildmistress Caprice Artiglo. The event offered a variety of challenges for mind and boy as my dear friend lord Mattheu Rivenshari ran, danced, stumbled across arx. I will not claim we proformed well. We struggled with some of the riddles but i couldn't have asked for a more fun evening

This week was also filled with joy and surprises. The evening began with a surprise birthday party for Duke laurent right in the middle of the sovreign bridge complete with dancing ang and bardic performances. Marquessa Tyche had an ingenious idea with people spontaneously wondering by to offer biirthday. I ended the evening as the auduence to a thrilling spat at ravnsholm at the invitation of countess aella. It was a thrilling match between Lord Mattheu Rivenshari and captain Caspian wild in which Captain wild scored an impressive victory which was a surprise.

My mother would not want to be remembered with tears. Neither my aunts, uncles, or cousins. I will celebrate their passion and respect their legacy, wine glass firmly in hand.

Thirty years on Aion.

As a knight, there is a significant chance I will not see forty.

But I shall do all I can to make it so. And to do as much good during that time as I can.

It's going to be my choice.

Whether quietly -- or kicking and screaming --

If there were a middling path between these two extremes. Between the patience that was schooled into me (not entirely, darlings, but you must learn the importance of when to flash those teeth in your smile -- and when to use courtier caution) and the wild impulsivity that seems to be plaguing me of late, like an itch -- what was I --

If there was a middle path.

Either I haven't seen it yet.

Or I haven't been looking hard enough.

I have a new partnership, scholar. That in Lou Grayson. I'm excited for it. For the adventure. The chance to prove myself further. Here's to the start of a wonderful partnership.

Please note that the scholars may take some time preparing your journal for others to read.
