I will be so glad when I can have myself to myself
again, and Klaus is his own man. He is tired of being called 'Miss Karas', too. November 4th is not close enough. I couldn't even finish this note without being interrupted!
There are stelae I haven't properly shared yet
, and news. You can see me helping my brother's... what is the right word, polemarchos
? Those are military terms, they are not quite right. Boithos
, perhaps. Anyway, the adelphe
's name is Annechen, and I went with her to buy her house. They have a little train at this place called 'Tin Teddy
'. I'm starting to be very fond of the little trains, they amuse me.
I didn't get pictures of going to Oktoberfest with adelphe
Alison - she's one of Klaus's neighbours. I was looking around the great house in Carntaigh in Caledon as a party was concluding, and found her just leaving. The Oktoberfest was very quiet for such a well-publicised event, but I found Greek dances there! Also a polka, which I heard made Annechen very happy. She likes things from her home here, but — who doesn't?
Speaking of which, I was visiting Kara's property - before she built her lovely house - and wandered around the island. I found Diana's Paradise Island annex! See me relaxing next to her poo
l? We finally had some time together, the epikleros
and I, and she told me her plans for us in this realm. It might be a long time coming, but she has vision a princess should have for her people.
Ah, what else.... I finally got some pictures of myself in my own armour, not just the Roman uniform. I had to be rescued by the Caledonian adelphe
Alexx when a strange sister speaking only Spanish showed up in the Consulate. I heard the princess showed up at Klaus's party, I thought that was nice (it would have been nicer if I'd been there to greet her). I showed a real adelphe
who guards the forest around some lands in Winterfell. She said she was an Amazon, although I did not recognise her; perhaps she is from one of the mortal tribes I have not encountered.
And then there's this holy-day this past Wednesday, a cross-quarter to the equinox and solstice, where apparently you either dress up unusually, get drunk, or have reverent bonfire rituals. Or sometimes all three. Klaus 'wore' me as a costume
to one of his events! And dressed as some character from an entertainment, to boot. At least she was a warrior. But then it got very strange, because I was there, but so was he, and my motivating spirit seemed to be speaking through and over both of us. At one point I faded out entirely, like I was asleep, and woke again to find my yellow costume ripped and somewhat bloody across the front, as if I had been attacked - but no wounds. And my pnevma
was still dominant. It felt very strange, and I still don't know what actually happened.
And the news: Roma, where I am a member of their Legio until my sisters gather in enough numbers here, has expanded its lands! The training grounds are moving to the very northern coast of the new land; there will be a large harbour just for the classis
- I saw three ships docked. There is a large mountain, taller than the dwelling of Haestphestus in the suburba
I think, and much free water through the land I could see quickly. Some of my Legio sisters led me there, and I found they have been gifted with the gods with flight as I have! That was as much of a surprise as the new lands. I must tell my new friend Telemachus - my brother has seen him in Caledon as a warrior of repute, but I met him at the sacrifice in honour of the Getae's change in status.
