I don't know what woke me up, but it's far too early to claim I got up early, and far too late to probably get back to sleep.

Probably a good time to make some more of that herbal tea. I think there was a late meeting somewhere in the building, since I heard people moving around.

Should probably talk to Corporal Thomas concerning slow healing on ribs. Might be good enough to see the gym facilities / practice rooms. I should mention that to Basch. Not sure I want him to walk in on me holding a blade, live steel or no.

Technically, I did have a bad dream, but - I think it might be the bed is a bit too soft to exactly feel comfortable. Probably good to ask Basch if they've got other options. The couch is better, but I doze on that often enough that it seems like a good recipe for insomnia to associate anything level and flat as a bed.

Some of us did take things a little...late. I hope we were not TOO loud about it. There was a bit of strategizing on a few of our parts against an interesting potential addition to our arsenal or two.

I could stand a bit of walking around if you'd like a guide.

Oh nothing TOO top secret. Our friends from the....other side of the tracks...so to speak, were here, a few of them, with some ideas. A few even seemed workable and not incredibly attention getting and flashy. For all that they pride themselves on their own subtlety certain members of that organization do have a fire that is...hard to quench.

And yes, I am. I hope that we can change that now, it never DID feel right, so much unsaid between two people entrusting each other with their very lives and secrets. Tea should be fantastic, I could use some break from myself for the now.

And ah, a bit closer to the first, though I don't sleep very well these days as is. Uneasy lies the head or something else along those lines?

Apparently your brother's been in touch. They don't sound pleasant in the least. I'll grant that much, but he got through them, with his family, or the family that he's willing to claim at any rate. I can't think how much pain he's in, but at least he'll make his way through?

Perhaps a little closer to the second. Mine will never change exactly, so best I find other focuses than criticizing every breath I take.

Ah, but does anticipating them make them happy, perhaps? It's something to consider, how you look at things.

I am told that helps at times, the talking through. My own mind in panic mode is quite the dangerous, very stubborn place. I'm not fit to reason with at allduring those times, and best not to try, as people have learned. I've made more decisions that had...interesting social ramifications that way.

Though you might be surprised. Among my friends, once, there was a pirate queen, a merchant turned pulp fiction writer, a former slave, a refugee and a man who lived in a sewer with dozens of cats. And I spend time now among a mercenary turned leader, so it's all a bit in WHO we are, not what.

And Banter? Oh I'm not immune to that. Hawke's always been part of that. ...I miss him, oddly. We were friends, once.

I...thank you? At the moment, not the worst it's been. It isn't overwhelming and I can breathe. I feel the weight on my shoulders, but...

The amount of time Elthina spent attempting to convince ME not to make a rash decision about my future, and the way I cycled between two options whenever the one looked worse...They'll never say I'm moved to stubbornness in any rational sort of ways.

I admit there have been times I simply have to hang back and wonder what people are on about. There are ways people have of leading you into so many topics you'd rather not have had or considered. Or they veer so personal it gets a bit uncomfortable.

It will sound superstitious and a little strange, but, well, the holy offices? Whichever ones are closest, have a sort of peace.

Of course. I learned in Kirkwall not to let my convictions go unsaid if they were that important to me, that I should be able to speak up about them before it lead to..well. Have you ever known something bad is coming, though you didn't know what, and then it hits?

That's what something like that taught me at least.

I'd say not a coward, unless I am one too.

And all the rest of that sounds...yes. It's less about the place, and more having space for performing the ritual itself. If you wouldn't mind overhearing the chant of light, of course. Some find it interesting enough.

Well then. I'll explain if you have any questions too. It might be interesting, actually, putting a spin on it again.

Do you really then? Should I start looking for bite marks in my quiver?

It IS a bit...performative. I'm glad to invite someone there.
