Home for Christmas

The house will not be shut up this time, as there will be family in residence, but all of the paperwork has been filed and approved.

That was the easy part.

My dangerous beloved has not said anything about her condition. I wonder if she knows for certain yet.

Council has all but given formal approval, and the aunties will adore her, I am sure.

Eight centuries of preparation, I wonder if I am ready for this.

New Arrival

The much awaited opening of the St Helen frontier occurred last night, and of course my beloved peregrine patrolled it straight away.

Good thing too, as there were some from my sister's staff that were wandering as well. Madame Tensai has not had time to release her monsters into the area, but you never know what was there before we arrived. It will be a mix of residential and commercial lots around the mountain and lake.

I have not had time to wander, as there were stacks of forms to send off, and packing to do. I want to be ready to go at a moment's notice, should the paperwork be approved. Everything from Council bids fair to meet my dangerous beloved's wishes, to this point. Now all that is left is for her to be approved by the old Aunties of my clan.

However, I am beginning to suspect that will be a bit like closing the barn door after the herd has run free.

Beloved's First Rez Day

Spent the day with Birdsan to celebrate her first year at this post, since she says she does not remember her birthday anymore.

We had a long talk, most of it intelligible, all of it enjoyable, with one true surprise.

I am going to have to submit a bit of paperwork, send requests for meetings, and request some information I strictly should not know about through regular channels.

I do not begrudge any of the efforts, and surprisingly, I think I like the idea.

I still need to find out what Mother did to the gift she gave to my beloved perigrine for Solstice, though.

A letter home


Things are heating up here, and there are several things that need my attention. I would feel better if I could have you here, we need all the warriors we can muster. However, I do read the papers, and from the notes Sister has sent home, you have your duties to attend as well. Try not to bite Obelensky, you do not want to know where he has been.

Know that if you need me I will come if I am at all able.

And she says she hates politics.

I found her prying up tiles in the hall, and knowing her, the fact that it was off center from the hall was no accident. She had quartered the property.

"Do you need any help?"

"No, I have it - it is my debt." she carefully put the contents of a jar in the hole, and said the blessing.

I was a little surprised by the jar's contents, but stayed out of her way until she finished, and replaced the tiles. "Thought that one had a priesthole hereabouts."

She dusted her hands, and murmured, "It does not hurt to be prepared. Once I find out what is tracking, I will have a report for you and Uncle."

I chuckled, "What, not Himself?"

"He is rooted in another discipline, and will be told, but I do not know if he will act."

Watching her leave for the train, I shook my head. She will try to take care of everyone, if they let her.
