In which you were trying to steal a painting from a manor, were flung away to who-knows-where (but probably for the better), helped a King weather a coup, and became barons of a holding last known for attempted regicide.
The air is different here: fresher, the breezes more playful. My father can no longer tell me I must hide who I am so I may soar day or night as my heart delights. It is a young land, this Doralon: young and eager and beautiful. I didn’t want to come here. I was angry at being sent here. But after just a few days I am thrilled about the possibilities laid out before us.
We saved the king. We had to because my sister says that nobility sticks together. I think she must mean that we stick together against non-nobles because we do fight amongst ourselves quite a bit. And now that knight is a baron with us! I guess that means we ought to stop treating him like a servant. And if I’m going to be a baroness in my own right I need to get some new clothes commissioned. I wonder if it would be possible to make a dress that’s actually pants, or perhaps pants that look like a dress? I do love skirts, but they allow awkward breezes in the nether regions during flight, and SOME people do not think it very appropriate for a baroness to be showing her knickers to peasants.
I know little about how we came to be on this Island of Doralon, and it is little comfort to know that no one else seems to have any idea either. Still, we must make the best of what the Fates have given to us. We have a Barony. I am the head of the Knights of the Azure cloak on this island (though the current membership is only myself). Most importantly, we have the friendship of the King, and he has seen fit to gift me with arms and a fine charger.
My most pressing concern at the moment is to learn as much as I can about our holdings (renamed the Barony of Vier, the significance of which I must inquire about), where we fit in the political landscape, and how to make our position secure. The best way for me to look after the count’s girls is to keep our position sure, and try to use their newfound responsibilities to mold them into responsible ladies.
