You know, it is a little frustrating when you have a highly important job that you need to be functional for and yet the news cycle only makes me want to drink every night.

So, question. If I were thinking of maybe hunting down a terrorist organization in Kashmir, would you try to stop me considering what's happening there currently?

Dear British Parliament, stop wasting time with no confidence votes. You have seventy-two days before the EU exit with no deal that would devastate everything. Those of us living and working abroad need to figure out our visas and crap.

The times I wish cracking some heads in government would actually work. I'll just prepare for having a continuous hangover headache for the next couple months.

At least the Snowmen are done with. I'm very much looking forward to going back to London to visit my brother for Christmas, then joining Freya and her siblings for New Years'.

I'm still not completely okay with knowing I'm a fictional character, but I have to say, the company that makes the game series I'm apparently from just came out with a line of activewear clothing. I may have bought one of the hoodies for myself. I'll just have to play dumb and say I'm a fan of the games or something. Or maybe I'll just have to play the games, save whatever one, or ones, I'm in because that would be too weird.

To all those who have served in the armed forces, or are currently serving in them, I wish you all a good Remembrance Day, or Veteran's Day as it is called here in America. I served in the British Army Special Forces in Afghanistan, and to all of my fellow soldiers and veterans, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

To all those who are interested in celebrating Guy Fawkes Night, Thomas has graciously offered his home as the setting of the party. Food, drinks, and games will be provided, but feel free to bring things to share as well!

[Insert specifics like address, time, etc, here]

Everyone is welcome, even if you aren't English. I look forward to seeing you all there! I wish Jacob was here for this

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;

Being English, I always celebrated Guy Fawkes Night moreso than Halloween. I'm curious, would any fellow Brits, or anyone else here, be interested in a Guy Fawkes Night celebration? There may not be a life-sized effigy of Guy Fawkes to burn, but there will at least be a smaller one. Food and so forth will also be provided if anyone is interested in coming.

For those who don't know, Guy Fawkes Night is November 5th.

Sometimes I wonder if I actually learned from the mistakes I made both in the dreams and in this life where relationships are concerned. Because sometimes it feels like I haven't, and other times I think I have.

Maybe I'm just being stupid, so perhaps I'll just mull it over a drink or two.

The internet can be a wonderful tool when you're researching things, but sometimes it's the worst. Apparently there's a video game centering on the life I dream of. And there's a whole series of video games, a movie and comics spanning across the centuries in the world I dream of.

I think I need a drink. Or ten.

It feels a little odd being back in Orange County after being out of the country for a couple weeks. Though the next time I head to London, I really need to remember to double check if anything, such as a royal wedding, is occurring the day I arrive. That experience only added to my irritation, but I'm over it now. Though I still want to punch Jacob a few more times

Though I seem to not have missed any craziness here. I'm not sure whether I should be disappointed about that or not.

Well. My dreams had yet another surprise in store for me. My brother asked me to come back to London, and what do I find upon arrival? A city gripped by terror, for it is October 1888 and Jack the Ripper is committing his atrocities. My brother is no where to be found and everyone but me seems to think he's dead.

So I follow in the Ripper's wake, taking on the guise of Atropos in the process, with the goal of ending the reign of terror and finding my brother.

That was an unexpected turn in my dreams. I decided to leave London and move to India with my husband. It wasn't an easy choice to leave London because my brother will be there training the next generation, but there is much to learn from the Indian Brotherhood, and I know my husband does miss his home country. Though it was a choice made easier by Jacob coming with to learn from our Indian Brotherhood for a while before he returned to London.

It is the first time in my dreams that I will be separated from my twin brother by more than a city's width. It feels...weird, just as it did in this life when I first moved here. But that is what Skype is for, and I'm going to have a nice long conversation with my brother this evening.

I also am uncertain of that boy, Jack, that my brother took from the asylum in the dreams

Well, I have to say my dream lover actually does romantic marriage proposals very well. He does know his flowers. A red tulip symbolizes a declaration of love. Now I am certain my offering to run across London collecting flower samples to fill his herbarium was no mere accident. I sense a set up on his part.

Though I simply must send my brother a bouquet of narcissus flowers. He most certainly loves himself above all else.

Well, the official opening of Pimpernel Outreach with the benefit dinner and silent auction was a success. Even if my parents tried to use it as an attempt to rehabilitate their image and garner good PR. As if I wouldn't call them on their naked hypocrisy on showing up. Though if it was calling them out on that where reporters could hear, or that I was there with a woman and bringing 'shame' or whatever to the family name that made them go rigid and clearly uncomfortable, who knows.

I'm sure I'll hear about both away from the glare of the spotlight but it was worth it to call them out to their face and refuse to be their pawn in an obvious attempt at good PR to wash away weeks of horrible statements.

I'm not entirely certain who to direct this to, but I received an item from my dreams that needs to be kept from falling into the wrong hands. Is there something in place for items of power like this to be protected? I will also say that it's not a weapon and it's not dangerous.

You know, I just had a moment where I've been so busy with work and the general state of the world that I almost missed my birthday. I managed to put a reminder both on my phone and on my computer to call my brother on Thursday to wish him a happy birthday as well. He never would've let me hear the end of it if I'd forgotten our birthday. And remind myself our relationship isn't getting bad here

I did get an early birthday present from my dreams, though. One of these days I'm going to need either a bigger closet or a bigger flat to accommodate all of these things.

First demons, now

I haven't even been back for two months, but I'm going to guess that leaving town for work only to come back to apparently messed up weather patterns depending on where you are is to be expected here. Or just things being normal enough when you leave and then returning to some new form of madness.

Oh my god, I wish to strangle my brother. He does not think before he acts! He just goes in without thinking of the consequences of his actions. He assassinated the owner of the Bank of England, who was a Templar, and subsequently broke the bloody bank. England's economy could have collapsed had I not recovered the stolen plates that were being used to create counterfeit money. As usual, I must fix the messes he makes around the city.

To clarify, this was in my dreams, he hasn't actually done that in this life. As far as I know. Perhaps I should make some calls and ensure that he hasn't sent England's economy into a tailspin or done anything else stupid that I have to fix.

I've always found Occam's Razor to be the most interesting of principles. Not just the law of parsimony, though it's saved me many sleepless nights. No, I mean the philosophy. The idea that the simplest of two ideas could and should be considered the correct one every time just never sat well with me, even as I saw how it worked, almost every time. In a world as complex as ours, with the consideration of emotions so extreme and illogical that they obey no law, how could that posssibly be true?

Today I get it. If someone disappears, is it more likely that they were kidnapped by someone they knew, or abducted by aliens? If a person is poor, is it more likely that it was a matter of circumstances, or meritoriousness? If one keeps losing those they care for, is it more likely that it's something to do with them, or with every single person that left them?

The simple solution is always the likely one. No matter how astoundingly unfair that may seem.



In unrelated news, I'm going drinking tonight, family be damned. Who's coming with me?

Given the hectic nature of my job lately, I should consider it a miracle that my dreams have progressed at all. Though at least in that dream life Miss Thorne will no longer be a thorn in my side.

It also seems more of my dream abilities are crossing over. I will need to test them out a bit more, though. I could really use being invisible right now

I'm becoming convinced my dreams are just a who's who of the latter 19th Century. I'd already met a young Alexander Graham Bell in the early stages of developing what would become the telephone, and bumped into Charles Dickens. Now I've met Florence Nightingale, who helped saved some friends of mine from an illness. I've also met a very young Arthur Conan Doyle. Most children his age would be playing with their friends. But he helps me solve murders. Guess that explains his writings later in life.

Though I'm getting closer to the Piece of Eden that's hidden somewhere in London. I found clues in the Kenway House that are leading me somewhere. I'm not completely certain where yet. I need to study them more first. Though it would be great if my brother stopped following me about and being annoying. Sometimes I really don't think he takes our mission seriously. Actually, no, more like most of the time I think that.

And on a non-dream front, there's not enough bloody tea in the world to help me deal with my day job. Which tends to turn into an anytime of day job. I may fall asleep at my desk.

These dreams are becoming intriguing. My brother and I have made some alliances in London, and we have freed Whitechapel from Templar control. I think Jacob's happy because he finally has the gang he's always wanted. I suppose I see the merit in having a gang, but strictly in the having numbers and allies on our side as we attempt to undo the Templar control, which is in every level of society in London. Working from the bottom up is not an easy task.

Though I have found some music boxes across the city that contain some medallions that open a vault hidden beneath the city. A vault that Michele Regue made. I believe he hid the Aegis there, and I am determined to recover it. Though Jacob thinks I'm wasting my time chasing some mad man's music boxes across the city. But he never did appreciate these sorts of things.

One of our new friends is none other than Alexander Graham Bell. The man is quite the genius, and I rather enjoyed working with him. He even upgraded my gauntlet to allow me better access to leap across rooftops in London. And I leapt from the very top of Big Ben after I helped Alexander fix a device of his. I have to say, that Leap of Faith was the single most exhilarating experience of my life.

Though why must my Assassin outfits all come with corsets? How are they conducive to fighting? I never understood this, even if it was the fashion. At least I had the sense to wear pants.

Is this not the most beautiful work of art you have ever seen? My wanted poster, with such a clear and well-drawn depiction of me. Fuck the Pazzi.

50,000 florins (florins were gold coins) is about 7.5 million dollars, in case it is what you were wondering.

This is not the only work of art I have received, no. My family was quite close with a man named Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps he is familiar to you. We purchased many original paintings from him when he was younger and these paintings - once carried home with me in a box - are now in my living room. To think I was also there, when he painted The Mona Lisa.

If these paintings were actual people, I would make dolce amore to them all the day and night.

Now if I could just dream of not killing people for about five minutes, I would be appreciative. Perhaps this will happen. I have settled in Constantinople, looking for keys, and have met a Venetian woman who has bewitched me and owns a bookshop. Searching for keys and decoding maps seems much better than taking out Borgia scum, especially when the owner of the bookshop is a redhead.

Started dreaming again. It's...really kinda depressing. Mostly just me being numb. Thought I was over that depression.

But then I dreamed General Ironwood sent me a new arm. It's metal, unpainted, but...losing my arm is the new normal, you know? I wonder if it'll show up here. Or if I'll try it, let alone get used to it. I don't think dream me is ready for it yet. But soon, maybe.

I wasn't certain at first, but it seems I am having those Dreams people here sometimes talk about.

Apparently my father belonged to a secret brotherhood known as the Assassin Order. He's training my brother and I in the Creed. Or, well, mostly me. My brother seems to prefer wasting his time elsewhere, but me? I am focused and embracing the Creed fully. Also apparently I'm living in the Victorian era, which is really ironic because I've always felt like I was born in the wrong era here.

Hello, I'm Evie Frye, new here and confused by the snow? I did not expect this amount of snow upon moving here. Is this normal? Though I suppose this is proof that climate change is real that can be shoved in the faces of those who don't believe in it.
