On the one hand, it would be very easy to dismiss everything she has to say. She very obviously has an agenda of her own. But ... she's being very open about it? Honestly, at first I thought we were going to have to tease details of that agenda out, but she laid it all in the open. We still don't know everything, but what she's saying would confirm many of the things that we've been afraid of. Namely that we're not in a very good situation if we simply follow along with the plan.

It's pretty obvious that the easiest way for them to get their siblings back is to just shove us out of these conveniently provided bodies. I suppose it took hearing it from her to really sink that in.

There are some issues. Namely, we don't know what we're to do in lieu of fixing the seals yet. We're supposed to ask Prudence and Patience about the reality of the between, and curing gangrene. Though that second one I know enough about, and I'm sure Nessa does as well. I just don't like the implications.

Also, we'll have to kill Danu. I'm not entirely comfortable dwelling on that one for long.

Dragons, this is a lot to take in, and I still can't believe she came to us.

I was reassuring Faith not very long ago. As I was doing it I was being very careful to not say that I have a few fears of my own. Mine aren't going to be very helpful for her in the long run. In fact, they're not going to be very helpful to anyone who is experiencing this. Thankfully, I do have someone to vent my own fears to myself.

We're fairly sure of what happened to every passenger but mine. Well, as certain as we can be. Even Lawrence and Kail know the hows, if not the whys. There is an entire plan devoted to figure out why their passengers killed each other. Ethniu couldn't stand it. And before any of that happened, we know Siobhan died for a greater cause, and had to be preserved. Toiraesa ... well, there's something there, but we know the end of that mystery. This means that we know who accounted for everyone. The siblings are in Ethniu's plan, but they also feature in the plans Danu made. Siobhan was fundamental to Ethniu's plan, and Toiraesa might in just the same way. Vaelentine disappeared from history without a trace, and whatever part of the plan he was supposed to contribute to ... well, we can't know it. That's what is worst for me. There's a plan at work. I'd accepted that. I simply thought I might know what it was supposed to be in the end.

I am worried that my not knowing what my part in the plan was supposed to be is the lost piece that will greatly inconvenience us. Who buried it? Danu seemed annoyed at me whenever I talked with her, but I just thought ... I don't know. What if she doesn't know why the Vaelentine story was buried? What if it was just Ethniu. She created mountains, she could easily erase someone's death from the records. What if my passenger's death was the missing piece to solving Ethniu's plan to begin with, and she's just better at covering her tracks than any of her siblings?

... Well. Yes. That's what is it. That's my fears, and really not too bad, but ... worrying me. Sorry if this is a bit much.

Thinking back on last night ... I believe she would've liked it. If either of you boys need to talk about things, I'm here for you.

[Trade]

I don't think we can stay here very much longer. There's things to finish, of course, but the cottage doesn't provide nearly enough protection from the mist. Or perhaps we've been exposed for so long ... well, regardless, we should finish up our business as soon as we can.

This was the last artifact we needed. I almost can't believe this, but we seem to be ready to meet the people who sent us in the flesh. Finally.

Alright, since we're not going to be fighting right now, it's probably best that we quickly figure out what we're going to do. We have another broken artifact, we have a woman who doesn't deserve what's happened to her, and we're days away from any outside resources. The mist is ... clearer now. Somehow.

We can't count on anything going our way for much longer, so we need to come up with a plan.

Nessa, how ... how is she doing?

[Kilian]

Boys, we are safe for the moment, even though it might not seem like it.

I believe today would be a good day for an update on how our horses are doing. I'm seeing a few too many of them in the mists, and the last time we had an update it helped.

Alright. If Lawrence says we're going to the boys's house than I will stand behind his decision. And it seems like it's become the consensus.

If we're doing this then we will have to do it smartly, and quickly. We'll have very little spare time, and so we'd best begin making our preparations immediately. If we're late to Taln then some very bad things will happen, and none of us want to be the cause of that.

Also, given that we're asking a lot of everyone who we're bringing, I feel like we should be fully honest to everyone coming about the reasons we're on this journey to begin with.

Ah, Saoirse, there's some possible good news for you if you'd like to come to the cellar Nessa's taken hold of. You should be the one to hear it first. See him first. I believe the innkeeper, of course, but you'd know him best.

On the one hand, this is really my field of expertise to begin with. I think we can all agree that Kail needs to be trained with lances to begin with if he's going to be carrying that thing around. On the other hand, I believe we're also all aware of how well the boy takes to training. He tries his best, but . . .

I was wondering if we could all pitch in to help him rather than just taking the entire burden on myself.

[Filter: Nessa]

It's true that the man needs constant attention, and there's quite a few other things you could be doing as well. However, I must once again point out that you're only human, and that you need to take care of yourself as well.

Is there anything I can do that will take enough of the burden off your shoulders that you could sleep for a couple of hours?

Dragons. I think that's working. It's -- Yes. There's that sound, and the ... the stairs are definitely coming out. Faster than I anticipated as well. They were fit perfectly against the wall, and that's why we could never see them. Never even knew they were there.

It should be safe enough to go down them soon because they've started with the top and it won't be too long until the pa--

Well, Kail's already started down. So perhaps anyone whose joining us should make up their minds fast.

You'll be happy to know that this isn't at all about lessons. Though ... a, perhaps this won't be the happiest of conversations.

I owe you both an apology, I think.

We've had more than a week here. I think it's time to consider going back to Doolin with what we've found. We can't stay out here forever. Unless there are good objections, of course.

I spent all of last night dreaming of my experiences in Korin on Orion's back with Jordan. I suppose I've spent the better part of two years trying to forget that ever happened, and anticipation seems to have drudged it back up. This won't be my first time in flight, but I'm certainly hoping for a smoother experience.

I realize that I may be repeating myself a little here, but this time, once again, things would be much simpler if there were concise censuses for the purposes of tax collection rather than so many looser sorts of references to go through.

Ahh, hm, well, it's good that we tried this test first. I suppose I was a little optimistic. Though it looks like they're still trying. A few crashes are to be expected. At least everyone still seems excited to keep going.

It should happen shortly.
