As it has been requested so much and in honor of Pietro being here, I made baklava again, more than last time. It may taste a little different, as I had to use different ingredients for the dough and the syrup, but I hope you all like it.

Jacob, Pietro will bring you some.

So do I offer to try and find coffee beans or is that not something I should do because you're all supposed to grow character from not having caffeine?

[Nico M.]
I think my team is going to be moving to the East settlement. You should come too. No wearing of X's required!

If I were a poet, I would write an ode to the coffee that has left us, but I am not, and so I will spare you all.

[Filter: Skywalkers & Solos + Chewie]
Have you given any thought to the settlements?

[Filter: Bravo Scouts]
Good work yesterday.

I'd like us to keep an eye open for any additional people looking for Wanheda.


If I'm counting right, I'm turning 1852 today.

The chocolate sauce would go very well with ice cream if we had some. Or cake. Berries? We can at least do berries.

You don't mind if I try to keep one of these little bushes in our room, do you? It would mean having my Leafeon out more since she can emit sunshine, but she's not as energetic as Eevee and she'll probably be happy to lie on my bed most of the time. They just remind me of home a little. We have a lot of kinds of berry, though none that are made out of sweets.

I do not understand. What is everyone arguing about? Am I supposed to kill anyone at the moment or not quite yet?

Anyone here know where I can find this so-called Pod God? Chap's been a bit stingy recently, all that lovely pornographic material from earlier notwithstanding, and I'd like to duel him. See what he's got. And take his crown if he's got one. Seems like the type to have one.

Any of you people one of his batty-arse followers? Pretty please?


I have tried to be very patient and keep myself occupied, but I do not think my captain is returning. I understand there are others who have returned home. How do I petition to return home? I do not wish to remain here in this fragile human body, especially when Granby is not here.

There are many of these writers who clearly have a distinct lack of understanding of the chaos of battle and the typical lack of opportunity for mid-combat intercourse.

All told, it is all highly entertaining, however.


Oh! So that is why humans have such long limbs.

Temeraire, have you seen these images? They are very educational, although I am not sure how some of these positions are possible. I have tried to replicate them but perhaps they require two humans to achieve.

Seeker Cassandra Pentaghast has left us. Vanished in the normal way, as I was sparring with her.

[Filter to Lt. Gen. Asala Adaar]
I would like to formally recommend that Sgt. Aclassi retain his rank and take over leadership of Charlie Squad in Sgt. Pentaghast's absence.

[Filtered Private]

I am not alone. Even
As I stumble on the path
With my eyes closed, yet I see
The Light is here.

Draw your last breath, my friends.
Cross the Veil and the Fade and all the stars in the sky.
Rest at the Maker's right hand,
And be Forgiven.

Coffee! What a marvel it is! After the battle I thought I would have to eat a deer and sleep for a week, but someone gave me coffee and now I feel magnificent!

Laurence! Temeraire! Come, let us look for Granby again. I am quite certain I can even fly now, given enough space to take off.

The concept of a night of cards tomorrow night is oddly comforting. It's good to know that some things stay the same.

I don't suppose there's anyone here who'd be willing to join me in a game of whist?

Are you the type of woman to enjoy a game of cards?

[Iskierka & Temeraire]
I have not yet had any look in my search for Granby, but given the number of strange things that happen here, I am determined not to give up hope.

Feels like I broke a mirror or walked under a ladder or something and forgot about it, I haven't seen anything bigger than a porcupine in two days. Does anyone know if you can even eat porcupine? I really just miss Artemis. She'd probably find some massive silver stag that would have us in meat for at least a month.

It's probably just the area I've been in. I'll try back down more. Avoiding having to carry things uphill only works if you actually have something to carry.

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.

We have all suffered great losses in this exodus, and I won't pretend that we're not still reeling from it. I wish that I could say that it gets easier. I wish I could say that the pain will end some day, but that would be a lie. It comes and goes in storms, in waves that sometimes threaten to swallow you whole. Then you'll find some peace when the storm is over. You're still in the ocean, however, and a storm will come back. They always do, except you know that you can survive them. You can prepare for them.

I'd like to take a moment of silence for those we have lost in this recent exodus and remember how much they were a part of us. I will do my utmost to preserve the new traditions and laws that we have established here and hope that I continue Councilors Steve Rogers's and Asala Adaar's legacy with respect and dignity. I am only your voice, and as such, my ears and heart are open to your needs.

If I were still a dragon I could fly over the terrain and look for the missing people instead of simply standing guard. It is boring and balancing on two legs instead of four is tiring.

Mt. Weather network post

With so much upheaval over the last few days, I thought I would make myself available for anyone who wants to talk. I'll be around in the common area off the library after dinner most evenings except Tues and Wed when I have shift. Consider it a drop in group for anyone who has concerns or just needs someone to listen.

God you people are saps. Why can't we just say "let's go kick some ass" and be done with it? Jeez.
