What's a man got to do to offload a perfectly fine, energy-efficient, bag-free vacuum cleaner in this town? Comes with standard one-year warranty, extended warranty's only an extra $9. Plus, free housecleaning! Limited time only, of course. A man's got customers to satisfy!

Are we still on for dinner Friday night?

Good morning, Councilor.

We need to talk about one of our new arrivals and the horribly impressive brainwashing I suspect he's under.

You know, back home, people don't travel much. Perhaps to the shore, if they're wealthy, but we never were, and besides, immigrants at the seaside? That aren't working on the boardwalk? Horrors. For the most part, you grow up with the expectation that you'll do either your father's or your mother's profession, and you won't leave the town that you were born in because what's the point? What are you looking for out there?

Well, I was looking for my sister. She'd run off a few nights before, and when we woke up to her empty room and missing traveling clothes we knew where she'd gone. There's only one place desperate people go to where I'm from, and that's Yharnam. Laila had been sick - dying, really, honestly, but none of us had voiced it. It was just Laila's malady, Laila's affliction, and then it was Laila's gone. I went after her, because I'm stupid and hopeful and thought that maybe Yharnam couldn't be all that bad, and it wasn't, actually, it was worse than bad.

I'd never been out of Aldergate before. Neither had Laila. I never found her, you know. I looked everywhere. And then all that mess happened - magic unto prophecy unto ancient rune unto hubris - and then I was here. Mount Weather! Brand new place, brave new world. Do you know how far I've traveled now? So much farther than my father or mother did, even with that ocean they crossed back in the yesteryear. So much distance to have so little to show for it.

I suppose what I'm rambling about - sorry, my point's buried under self-pity - is that for all the reasons that this place is so strange to me, so unknowable, so unlike home, it's nonetheless SO LIKE home. All these people coming in and out of our lives with nary a trail to amble on or a string of fate to pull, and what are we left with? A hope, and our feet itching to follow, if we care to. I always care to.

I miss them. I miss her. Is that too sentimental? Well, others were always better at the stiff upper lip.

In the world Tauriel and I are from, it would have been difficult for us to have a life together. Nevermind how I don't survive the battle - had I lived, we each would have faced banishment from our homes. She already had. For me. For wanting to do what was right.

My uncle was right when he said I asked too much of him. We could not have fought old scars and prejudices in a few weeks or a few months. Perhaps not even in a lifetime. The anger that our people held onto stretched back centuries. Our love alone would have likely never been enough to change their minds. I was prepared for that. I'd asked her to come with me to the mountain, but we each had duties to our kings that we weren't ready to disobey. I don't regret that. My uncle and brother and cousins needed me. Our people needed us. I couldn't turn my back on them. But I had hoped that when it was over, something would be different. Better. If the kingdom no longer needed me - if we'd all survived, Thorin would have been there to rule, and after him there would have been my brother - then I would have been free to do what I wanted. I could have followed my heart. I would have followed her anywhere. I wanted to show her all the things I'd seen. I wanted to watch her watch the moon rise over the mountains I once called home. I wish I could say it wouldn't have mattered what our people said, but it did matter. It simply wouldn't have changed my mind either. I had never been truly alone in all my life until I came here. Now I wasn't as ready to face disappointing my family as I thought I was. I've been angry, and afraid, and demanding in response. I wasn't sure how to be patient when we didn't know how much time we'd have. I wanted the life I knew I would never have in our world.

I wasted so much time on anger I found a place for a home that I think Tauriel would have liked. She wasn't made for living underground like I am, and she wanted to live among the trees, but now she's gone.

I think I'll build something anyway. So if she comes back, it's here, even if I'm not.

Ever since he's been back, I can't stop thinking about this other woman having her hands on him. Him being ins I don't want him to touch me. I'm not happy. I don't know how to get over this. Is there a way? The kids are suffering. They know something's wrong. They've been on their best behavior. I can't keep doing this to them.

I don't think I want to try anymore. I think I just want to give up. Cut my losses and move on. Get back to work, you know. Have my own place with the kids, and we can co-parent. He's really great with the boys, and I'd hate for them to lose that.

I just think it's time to shit or get off the pot. If this isn't going to work, then we should just admit it. It's the first step to healing, right? Realizing that it's a problem that can't be solved without damaging the boys.

I guess I'm pretty much healed but I don't really feel much better. I wish I could get drunk.

So who is coming with me to karaoke so I can pester Mags into making me obnoxiously named cocktails? I might even sing, depends how drunk I get.

I know it's a school night, but it's almost the weekend.

It's spring so that means it's time to start thinking about landscaping your yards and getting new plants. So come down to Game of Thorns and talk to me, we'll see what we can do.

Did anyone actually get to meet a pirate yesterday? I didn't and I was disappointed.

This town really needs a better gym. I'm actually starting to miss the fitness center on base, early mornings and aggressive coaching and all.
