I saw a sign at a church today that "spread love as thick as you would Nutella" and I think that's beautiful.

I should have known getting involved in Musketeer business would be an adventure! I can't say it's bad though, in fact it's a lot of fun. I don't really mind these dreams :)

I've said it before and I'll say it again, it upsets me that Rochefort in these dreams is possibly the worst human alive. He was such a good ally in that one set I had, and I'd developed a sort of fondness for him.

Though these dreams have always been something of a mess, I think. I'm forever grateful to have very understanding friends who do not punch me in the face when I do stupid things, and now that the inevitable has happened and I've been arrested for treason I'm certain they'll come to my rescue.

I hope.

Or this is going to be a messy way to end things.

I went to see my massage therapist today. It was glorious in the moment, but now my muscles are at the point where they've been smushed around and don't know what to do. So they've resorted to soreness.

But in the pursuit of relieving tension, it's worth it.

I have to admit, I sort of miss the snow. But at least the little one got to build some snowmen and make snow angels before it started melting and whatnot.

My new year's resolution is in full swing, I'm happy to say. I've vowed to learn at least something more about baking, and my husband is sweet (and patient) enough to be teaching me.

My dream counterpart needs to learn to be a little more discreet, I think. Though knowing him as well as I do, I can't blame him entirely, but it's likely ill advised to be blatantly obvious with your secret affair in front of your current lover. If it even is an affair. I can't exactly say for certain what's going on, really, but I can say that it is not fun to fall from windows, nor did I ever expect Milady to show hints of heroism. This might be the best version of her I've ever dreamt about. Rochefort, on the other hand, is much more sinister than I recall him being and I see trouble brewing on the horizon.

On a better note, dreaming aside, Porthos and I have decided to put our unemployment to use. We'll be doing the farmers market circuit to sell some of our baking. Well. My baking, he helps. Usually by eating things. I naturally strongly encourage people to come buy things, if only to keep me from going crazy with boredom.

Given that this place turns a little strange, I think I've decided to forgo the dressing up this year and just decorate the house and hand out candy. It seems like the safest bet, at any rate. As much as fun as it was to turn into 17th century cavalier that one time and shout at people in French.

Having one of those weeks so far and it's only Tuesday. Just many little annoying things all adding up to create something more dramatic than it should be.

To top off my morning I got a ticket. Gotta love how they tell you to 'have a good day' after costing you 400 dollars and scolding you. How thrilling.

Apparently it didn't take long at all for me to start dreaming again. I'd forgotten what they were like, almost. I'll admit, it's sort of fun to be off doing my own little mission. Posing as a Spanish sympathizer and befriending a woman who claims to have visions from God. Though just as I woke up, Constance arrived and brought the Queen with her, so I'm certain everything will come undone quite quickly.

C'est la vie.

I've just now realized I haven't announced my return to the county. As if I could stay away for long while all the excitement was happening here. Hopefully it'll be as if I never left, and of course once Porthos gets here we'll have a party for old and new friends.

Late night at the office tonight, and thank God for pack-and-plays. Viv is asleep in the corner while I go through this paperwork. Poor girl. She's amazing and patient. I wish that I could have given her a more interesting night tonight! But she's got her blocks in there, scattered around her little, sleeping body.

Means I'm stuck here until I'm finished with this mess and can head home. I'd sell my soul for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich right now.

Dream Aramis is useless. I'm completely useless. First we lost the King, and now I'm solely responsible for a plan going wrong and losing Porthos.

One day, maybe, I'll surprise myself by not making a mess of things.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who's ridiculously excited to go see Zootopia? Mom's watching Viv, so I can go this weekend. Just need to find someone to go with look up show times. How adorable does it look? And, apparently, it's a good movie on top of being family friendly... It's setting records and still at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Are they going to take away my adult card because I'm so excited to go see a kids movie?

After a few months of not dreaming, I thought maybe I was through with them. Especially considering how my last set seemed to go. But it seems Orange County has other things in mind.

Admittedly, I'm nearly excited. Nearly. It's been forever since I dreamed anything like my very first dreams but that's where I seem to be again. And now a new familiar name has shown up. More importantly, I think, is that the Dauphin is born. lest we forgot I knocked up the queen of France

I continue to not miss Richelieu. If I ever disliked him before, this dream has certainly compounded that.

Our little puppy isn't such a little puppy anymore but that doesn't stop him from trying to act like one. He still tries to sit in my lap on all fours and I can barely even move when it happens anymore. This boy is a lady killer though. Two women gave me phone numbers because of him. Awkward.

I sucked it up and signed up for an eHarmony account. A lot of people are meeting online now-a-days, right? I'm actually kind of excited about it. It feels like there's more of a screening process than just randomly bumping into someone in a bar. (Not that I was ever much for bars, but...)

Wish me luck?

It appears my penance for all the things I'd done in the dreams was to estrange myself from my friends, and outlive all of them. A solitary life is no good when it's forced upon you. And in a way I ought to be happy. I never changed the course of France's history but became an ambassador of Spain to France, a good position, but it feels so hollow.

But I feel, in my soul, that this particular adventure has finally come to an end.

What a way to wind down a much needed vacation. We saw Barcelona play Atlético Madrid yesterday. I'm very, very happy to say that Barcelona came out victorious (and I'm still suffering the hangover). Even Porthos enjoyed himself there, I think.

But it will be nice to return home tomorrow. For some reason, I find myself really missing Orange County.

As most of our close friends know D'Artagnan and I were married in Paris on Saturday and it all went perfectly. Thankfully he was happily surprised.

We're currently in the town where D'Artagnan was born in the dreams and staying in a lovely quaint little place.

As my first act as adoring husband I have decided to share this picture with you all.

Cute picture under cut )

I just realized that I'll be heading off to Europe soon (thank you again to Athos and D'Artagnan for that again, by the way). I feel like it can't come soon enough. Happy as I am to be a new father, and everything, it will be a needed reprieve. I've got some family mingled around France and Spain I haven't seen in ages, too.

My only qualm, and this is really just nitpicking because who can balk at a trip to Europe, is that I'll miss Barcelona playing. They play on the day we get there, and then their next game will be after we leave.

Pfft.

Today was completely crazy. And I can't remember ever feeling this overwhelmed with any feeling in my life.

Our baby was born. On Sharon's behalf, I want to say that we're beyond happy to finally meet our little girl. Viviana Margaret Carter - du Vallon. She was born at 6:22pm, and she's 19.2 inches and 6.8 pounds, and she's perfect.

I've never felt so in love in my life.

And Sharon's doing well. And thank you to everyone that was there through it all. I'm so glad to know she's already so loved by everyone.

I think the stress might be getting to all of us.

I came home the other day to hear shouting from the kitchen, and when I went to see what was wrong I saw Aramis on the counter, chucking things from the spice rack at this giant roach that was sitting on the floor.

He started shouting at me in Spanish, and when I told him I didn't understand he switched to French which didn't help at all.

Finally I squashed the (now very well seasoned) roach and had to go sit down before I hurt myself laughing.

I am now also very well seasoned.

I hadn't accounted for the one scenario that would send me into ruin. I hate the bleed through of feelings. I don't like feeling this panicked.

And if I smoke any more I'm probably going to drop dead from lung cancer tomorrow morning.

I had a very relaxing weekend, away from the noise and excitement of fireworks and barbecues. It was a nice reprieve.

Dreamwise, it's all coming to a head soon, I can feel it. The majority of the French court seems to be eating out of the palm of my hand and I've managed to get the king's twin out of the Bastille. He wants to love me like a father, which is something my dream self seems very affected by. I realize now it's not just the future of France I'm in control of, but also this young man's.

I'm very tired this weekend. I haven't been sleeping well, though, so I suppose that's it. Thank God the nursery is done and the basement will be done ... Soon.

When I do manage to sleep, I dream, and my dreams just make me anxious. Things have hit a snag, in the plot to swap kings. When putting in place such an intricate plan of treason, snags induce near heart attacks. And I still can't shake the ever constant presence of D'Artagnan, and now Athos, too. It's honestly as if you two have very little better to do with your time in Paris than make my life more difficult.

First of all, I'm so, so happy that FIFA's finally getting investigated. It's been a long time coming.

Second, FC Barcelona is playing the Champions League final match this coming Saturday. Should anyone be interested in watching, my home is open. There will be drinks and food, and ball drop is at 11:45am. Also, I suppose even if you cheer for Juventus, you can still come.

ETA: Apparently Porthos is jealous of football, so I would like to add that, yes, I am happy to be married and I am just waiting now to officially have my name changed to du Vallon.

Headed out to DC today to get everything ready for the wedding. I could not be more excited, or more nervous. But mostly very very excited.

The hardest part (so far) was dropping Moose and Bazin off at the boarding house. There may have been a few tears shed, since this is the first time I've been away from the little darlings for any length of time. Had to make sure that Bazin slept in the same place as Moose, or the poor pup would get worried and try to go look for him. Or start crying and keep everyone up all night.


Anyway! I'll be available (in limited capacities) by phone, but otherwise very very busy with very very important wedding things for the forseeable future. Wish us luck!

Well, I've become the Superior General of the Jesuits in my dreams. That effectively makes me one of the most powerful men and Europe, which is good, because I'm playing a dangerous game. Still, dream Aramis is clever, clever, clever. At every corner, though, is D'Artagnan. He doesn't quite know what's going on, but he knows well enough that it's something, and I'll be damned if he isn't just causing me inconveniences to stall me until the end game appears. There's no enemy greater than a good friend.

In more pressing and relevant news, I'm getting married in nine days. I think I'm going to be sick. I can't believe how quickly time has gone. It seems ridiculous now to ever not be with Porthos, in any aspect. In every set of dreams I've had, he's had a vital role. I still find the idea of marriage both wonderful and terrifying.

We're flying out to DC tomorrow, to spend the next week making sure everything is ready and in order. I'm excited to see my family. I haven't seen them since Christmas, which I know hasn't been very long, but to me it feels like eternity. I hope you all won't get into too much trouble while we're gon.

Porthos's birthday yesterday was delightful. I've never been to Disneyland before. We were almost as bad as children. Also, I'm getting married in a month. I'm remarkably nervous already.

I see now where my dreams might be going. How any man can have so much in motion for such purpose is inspiring. Everything hangs in such a balance and yet it always plays out precisely as intended. There is a man in the Bastille who looks like the king. I've used this knowledge to present myself to the Jesuit General, and now I'm left wondering if it will be in vain or not.

Since it's spring, I've started wanting to do more things outside. The weather's just too nice to stay cooped up indoors, you know? So I take Moose for a nice long jog, and then do my usual workout routine on the front steps instead of in the gym.

Apparently a sneaky fiancé took pictures of me when I thought he was busy sunbathing. I can't be angry, really. I look damn good in them.

I'm so glad that Lent is over. I won't lie, there was a moment a couple of weeks back where I cracked and ate a tray of cookies and drank a bottle of wine. But today was fantastic, Porthos and I have so much food still (Athos, D'Artagnan, Sharon - if you want more, we'll bring some with us to work).

And an Easter gift, I have more dreams. Continuing in the same thread, only now a decade later still. I'm a Bishop. Bishop of Vannes, to be exact, confidant of one Nicholas Fouquet and with Porthos we are fortifying a fortress. It's not all as it seems. I know there's more going on behind the scenes, but I want to see how it plays out. I think I hold the very future of France and the monarchy in my hands. Though D'Artagnan someone, I know, suspects me of things. We speak in circles around one another. In my best interests I sent him on a wild goose chase after Porthos, if only to buy Porthos time to express my concerns to those in Paris.

Also, much as I love him, Porthos cannot keep secrets. He would ruin my plans and all in the spirit of meaning well, which will not do.

Oh - did I mention I got some beautiful gifts with these dreams? The robes of a Bishop which are so finely made, and the pastoral ring. I was going to keep it to myself, but, it's amazing.

Image under cut, safe for all. )

It is the crown jewel of all the rings I wear. I'm going to lock it into the ebony box with my other dream gifts, nestled against Anne of Austria's cross and the diamond encrusted cross I received from the Duchesse de Longueville.

There's something so fulfilling about getting one over on these Cardinals. First Richelieu, and now Mazarin. As if there was any doubt that we Frondeurs would succeed. I'm sad another adventure's come to an end. I think that would be it for me, in those dreams. I didn't even bargain anything for myself - I wanted my mistress and her son to get the money and the land I could have asked for myself. Though, to be perfectly frank, I'm almost certain the son was mine.

Oh! Which reminds me, tomorrow I'll be finding out if I'll be getting a son or daughter. I say I'd be happy with either. I would be, really, but I really really hope it's a girl. I'd quite like a daughter.

So now is probably the time to admit to all who know us that D'Artagnan has agreed to tie himself to me for the rest of our lives and we're officially engaged.

He has made me ridiculously happy by saying yes and we're looking forward to whatever awaits us together.
