I've sent out messages to those involved previously, to see if they still want to work on it. It'll be good to get my mind on SOMETHING other than Bastion, so I'm not completely consumed by the preparations we're doing there. And griffons? They're pretty damned cool, right? I'm hoping that those that helped Aiden can help me fill in some gaps. I didn't get to talk to him much about it before the war, other than to try and give him hints about where some have been sighted by a friend. We never did get to talk about that, alas. He would have enjoyed hearing the friend's tale.

It's still very hard. The not knowing if many of your family and friends are still alive, and which are dead. I witnessed thousands of people dying, literally, just on my street that night, and I'm still not really that ready to talk about it. I find myself looking over my shoulder all the time just to make sure some moving plant or vine isn't trying to grab hold of me. I still have nightmares about it all.
I try my best to be keep how I'm feeling in check in front of the children, particularly since Mason is still away on some business. I've received a letter from him at least, so I'm assured that he's fine. Everything is fine. For now. At least.

Afterward, my husband and I attended the Assembly of Peers. I am not sure what I was expecting, it being my first opportunity to attend since coming to the city. It sounded as though I might be witness to great turmoil, but instead it was a fairly standard dose of politics. I suspect far more interesting comments were being made too quietly for the whole of the gathered to hear. Though, I admit disappointment with some of the comments that were heard and should have been left unsaid entirely. Not that I am any stranger to saying out loud that which should have been kept to myself.
So many things to think about.

To the Crafters Guild, I leave the wealth of my materials, not to include the alaricite, to be woven into new works of art. For inspiration and history, I as well leave the simple jewelry casket of gold which contains my collection of works by Guildmaster Joscelin Arterius.
To the Faith and Dominus Aureth, I leave all my coin for all of their good works.
To the Red Lady, the Queen of Aetheris, Ruby: if I do not get a chance to use the boons that are owed, the payment that you are indebted for the dress that you bought, then I request, if you will still honor them, that you will give one boon first, to my lovely, incomparable patron, Princess Berenice Velenosa. I wish for the second boon that you bestow it on Princess Zara Valardin and the third on Princess Sabella Grayson, for their support of the same work that you bought.
Last but foremost, the only person in my life that has been fully my own, fully my dream, fully my friend—Evaristo Arterius. I leave the alaricite in my supplies, so that he may craft himself some protection or weapon, and think of me, so that he might continue to fight for a better world. I also leave him the steelsilk gown known as A Visit From Inspiration, so that he may always seek her, and anything else amongst my possession that he might wish to keep.
Everything else should be given to the Faith to distribute amongst those who have need of it.

Relationship Note on Savio
It truly feels like for the Gods themselves made it possible.
I will soon get to call you my Lord husband in the eyes of all... but the Archlector is not going to make it easy....
Still, with you at my side the future is going to be well worth living.

Relationship Note on Felicia
Most of what I've heard is mixed, but it would be: wagging fingers because we never speak of our family's past, doubt that we have any ties to nobility, jokes about not forgetting our friends and neighbors in the Lowers when we're elevated, irritation, well-meaning and on our behalf, I suppose, about the path being made so difficult as to be impossible.
What I've heard is most clearly and consistently is pride, though. I've heard so many variations of Marquessa Mia Riven's words about Felicia that I feel I can draw out most of the truth of them. That my sister has done so much to help others that the Marquessa would give Fel her time and would speak in her favor...

I actually don't think anything has changed. Other than it will take a little longer for those who have friends in high places to be elevated, it's always been this way. The only thing different is that they're just stating it openly. I actually don't mind the clarity.
Though, I suppose this means my lofty dreams of lady-shipping are lost. Whatever shall I do?
Honestly, I was never under the misguided assumption that a commoner like me would ever be so loftily placed for all my childhood daydreaming. I am what I am and I like it that way.
And, why should I not? I'm one of the illustrious and fiery Queens of the Lowers. Our numbers are many. Each lass a fierce and formidable, glorious example of our own nobility in their own way. We've got dozens down here and we don't need some silk's approval to affirm our position or passions.
So, I don't know what the whining is about. We all know that most of us are not marked for that. So, let's just get on with living our lives and doing the best we can to do right by our own just as we've always done.

Relationship Note on Eurion
I think he thinks he's too charming and handsome and therefore I should find him amusing.
I do not find him completely unamusing. He has his moments, I suppose.
In a strange way, it was nice to see another familiar face returning to the city.
