... is it...

Is it obvious to everyone else, what I'm supposed to do...?

... I don't...

I don't know if I can. It's... it's too many. And Nessa never finished with me...
celestialsoul: (// like you imagined when you were young)
[Filter: Franelcrew]

That was... eerie, wasn't it? How they just nodded and let us pass...? Who were they, did you know? Those robes they wore looked almost... ceremonial, or...

-- ah! --

That... that was... ah, my head feels strange, and I... mmph, I... I don't feel so...
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
[Filter: Jace]

I...

I think you're right, Jace.

I think it is related.

I think it has to be.
celestialsoul: (// if we take it slow)
[Filter: Franelcrew]

It's... it's hard, ah haha. To... to distance from the answers I want, right now, the things I want to learn and know and hear, and what's... important. What will help. What...

Ah.

This is what I... came up with. After a night of tossing and turning, ah haha... which Jace could tell you all about in aggrieved detail...

- Is what's happening with us -- with my family, with all of us -- directly related to the seals? This quest, these... trials. Is one because of the other?

- ... why -- ah. I... I think I understand, based on the things Miss Naelene has said, that... that the reasons Franel exists there and not there are just... political. Something that happened. The death of a family line, and... and somehow, some version of us lived on in different lives, but -- but why did we have to -- switch? The way that we did? Why are we here, on this side? Surely, the Clerics must have been on both? And... I just -- I think it must be important. Why I had to become -- her. The other Celeste. And she... I suppose -- she became... me? I've been thinking about this constantly since we learned... two sides. A mirror image. If I came here, and inhabited her, then she must have... gone somewhere? Gone to me. ... why? Why was it needed? Why did it have to happen this way? And her -- them. What are they doing, on their -- on our side?

It... might not matter. It's just... I've been thinking about it. So much. And... it might?

- And the Citadel. It's more than just... more than just a destination, I know it. Something... something is waiting for us. Not just the Clerics. Not just the family of the souls we carry. But something else. Do P -- do Suaimeas and Crionna know anything... anything about that?

... that's what I have. I'm -- sorry if it's scattered. Still, after all these years, I'm not especially good at expressing ideas...
celestialsoul: (// every once in a little while)
[Filter: Franelcrew]

Ah! I have it!

I have to... it makes sense. It's --

We didn't just touch the other artifacts, we... we interacted with them in some way. The stone was supposed to sing beneath the feet of the true rulers, which it did. And Kail wielded both the spear and the sword...

We need to do what the cauldron was meant for.

We...

We need to eat.

Are you sure you don't want to ride with me? It'll be much less cramped... ah, and you'll get to hold tightly to my waist all day!

[Filter: Doolin and Franelcrew - Boys]

I... hopefully this should be... simple enough. I... I'm going to do my best, but --

Ah, I just -- all right, I -- I'm going to start.
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
[Filter: Franelcrew + Doolin - Boys]

Ah... all right, I... I'm going to start soon, I think...

Iseult? Did you find that pendant you were talking about? If you don't mind bringing it...
celestialsoul: (// like you imagined when you were young)
[Danaan]

You have to... create a pocket. That's what's been lost. That's why only the simplest of things can be enchanted. What... what is it in the item holds the runes? It's the pocket. That's where the magic slips in, touches the runes, sets them sparkling...

Not just anyone can do it... it's a gift. Creating that bubble, both real and unreal. Living in the between...

Was that the mistake?

Did we open too many windows?

-- they.

[Trade]

Did they open too many windows, not -- not us. I wasn't there. I couldn't have been there.
celestialsoul: (// save you from your old ways)
[Filter: Franelcrew + Doolin - Boys]

Ah!

I --

I just had an idea. A -- a potentially brilliant idea.
celestialsoul: (// if we take it slow)
[Filter: Franelcrew]

Ah, everyone... this is just so wonderful. I know it's... simple, and sweet, and not fancy at all, but maybe... maybe that's who I am now.

I...

When Druce said -- where will you be next year? My first thought was... hopefully... hopefully, I'll be home. But then, it occurred to me, I... well, I'm not sure if that's what I want. That is -- I want home back. I want to see Father and Mother, and everyone. Of course I do. But... but I don't want to be Lady Celeste in Franel. Because then you all wouldn't be able to be there, with me. I want...

Well.

I don't know what I want. But I know that I want my friends there... and I know that the me who could have been happy with that life... she was very, very young. It's been ten years now, and...

And I'm happy with who I am.

Ah... yes. That's... all I want to say...

Who wants more cake?

Good morning.

Ah...

So... it seems as if we're getting some semblance of a peaceful Rose Day, after all. Searlait hasn't appeared in a week, after all, and... well, I know it feels silly to try and enjoy ourselves, but really, it's... it's not so bad, is it? I think I was going to go crazy if there was any longer...

And...

And Rose Day is important! It's Rose Day! And I've been meaning to talk to you about it...
celestialsoul: (// waiting on some beautiful boy)
[Filter: Franelcrew + Doolin - Boys]

It...

We...

We -- lost the connection? Maybe? I -- no. No, I think it was... something else, I think...

I don't know what happened. I don't know.
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
[Filter: Franelcrew + Doolin]

Ah... I can't help but wonder just how much time we have left...


... I think I can do it. I -- I really do think I can. I'm so close to putting the formula together. It's -- four pages long, ah, but I think, maybe, I could stack that with the stone. And if not... perhaps a few others could help me? We have Kilians here.

But... I can't yet, and... and every day that passes, I think... this is it. She's going to come...
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
[Filter: Franelcrew and Doolin]

Goodness! I -- I just woke up now! Jace and I... I... read my journal, I always do, and... Dragons, I read what... what happened, and... and... ah, what -- what are we supposed to do?
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
Ah... I had a dream, last night.

I... I don't remember it very clearly, except that I was walking in the garden. I think I was going to go back down into the hidden chamber... beneath the fountain... ah, and then, while I was there, there was a man wearing a cowled hood. He came to me and asked me questions, and...

Ah.

I... I only barely recall.

I've dreamed like that since we got here. I... I suppose it's nothing. But this one left me a bit unsettled, I admit...

... I'm so glad to see all these people back from where they were missing. I... I just wish I knew more about what to do, now. There are two treasures left to find, and... seven months left?

Well... ah. At least it's halfway...

Still.

I would try and scry, if I even knew where to start.
celestialsoul: (// save you from your old ways)
[Filter: Franelcrew]

I -- have an idea!

It may be ridiculous... but...

Ah... can... can someone translate to Eabhan for me...?
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
The gardens really are beautiful. Ah, I... I know that everything here is dying, but it's the only thing that really feels like fall to me. And... and I love fall. Ah, I love all seasons, the way the world turns...

It's nice to be able to come here. I -- ah. With people I care about.

This fountain...

It's beautiful. I've never... these -- Kilian knots, aren't they called? I've seen them other places, but... ah. It's exquisite...

How long has it been dry?
celestialsoul: (// easy now watch it go)
[Filter: Jace]

I...

I think I could use some air.

I... it's hard to stop thinking about all of it. All what happened. And -- and I don't just mean the things that Lawrence said, the things he learned from the Prophet. I mean what happened to you, too. I -- I know you didn't want to talk about it, I know -- but I can't stop, and --

The gardens -- would you like to go out? It's the only place here that reminds me a autumn, with all the bushes turning colour, and...
