It's fine if he's seeking other apprentices. Ones that are "Worthy" and "Merit" of it. He won't even tell me that he's not going to teach me.

Everything's fine.

It's fine if Aethelwine didn't think the position of First Magus was worth defending. If Warrenwatch and those serving him weren't worth fighting for.

I knew I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up.

I need to remember why happened before. What happened with the other Masters who were mean or cruel or neglectful. Why is it so hard to remember?

Master Kant said that I am prone to forgetting and that I should write my thoughts down so that I don't forget them. But why can't I find what I've written down?

Things are going good!

I mean aside from everyone I knew being dead or gone. Even that ditz Melvin. But  the Tower is happy to see me, the Broom is happy to see me, the teacups are happy to see me too. My new Master didn't try to throw me out (I hate when they do that) or try to kill me (I hate when they do that too). You hafta stay positive, that's what I say! When life gives you planar lemons, you make planar lemonade! And then you take that damn planar lemonade and you sell it to thirsty and desperate travelers! And then you take that money and buy new practice wands and scrolls! Yeah!

I'm going to study the things he tells me to study even though it involves reading a lot of books. I hope that Master Ebersol understands I'm not the fastest reader. Master told me that he's going to teach me how to control two magic missiles at once if I prove myself worthy! I'm so excited!

I don't know about this House business though. I must admit that has me a little worried. And I don't think I'm the only one.

I need to be careful. The other Magi are coming after the First Magus. I saw all the towers light up. The First Magus doesn't know the significance of that but I do.

I'm scared. I don't know what I should do. I don't think anything like this has ever happened before, has it? I hope they don't hurt Warrenwatch. Can I trick them into fighting somewhere else? I dont want to see her hurt again.

I wasn't smart enough to figure it out. I had all the pieces, all the clues. But I couldn't put it together.

I had to be led to the answer like a horse to water. I've never seen a horse, but Mistress [Unintelligble] was always fond of that phrase. I miss her.

I'll have to find another way to prove myself. And I still need to go back to Ring 99 and do all those things that the First Magus commanded me to do.  I need to visit Alice's Bookshop again and the Royal Archivist's Tower. I'm glad he didn't tell me to go to the Cheese Forge. They'd rough me up.

I saw Aethelwine. Still hurts. I barely remember why. I should write this stuff down. Master [unintelligible] says I'm prone to forgetting certain kinds of details. Future Marcille, remember to write things down!

I'll be back together with Warrenwatch soon. I just have to prove myself. I was so close! I need to figure out what to do with all this fighting. I know I'm just an apprentice and I can't do anything, and the smartest thing to do would just be to keep my head down and focus on my tasks - but all the blood and spellfire in Warrenwatch really has me freaked out. And it's so hard to clean.

Think positive, Marcille! Chin up! I'll solve the next Ring on my own! I'll find something worthwhile and then Master will have to teach me the secret!

Master must be upset with me. He's sending me away from Warrenwatch. It must be because I didn't solve Ring 89 before Magus Silver's Ring Running crew. He told me to learn some lessons in grace and mercantalism from people in Ring 99.

I hate Ring 99. I can't find any of the planar dust or particulates that I use for my magic here. I hate the people here. They're so violent and rude.

I found my new home. It's old, dirty, moldy and full of moss and spiderwebs. It smells like peat and grossness.

My bed is cold and damp.

I'm starting to feel sick already.

Master let me back into Warrenwatch. I am feeling better already. He's such a kind Master. I didn't even tell him about the spiders that planted eggs in my hair. Or the mud bath incident. Or the fairy incident. Or that time I found Billy on the floor and thought Master murdered him and I went to clean it all up and I tossed him into the meat seam and I heard him whispering later about pigs and I thought I was going crazy or being haunted but it turns out that he wasn't dead and that's a relief.

I think I might have told him about that? It's hard to remember these past few days. Things have been a bit confusing since I got back from the First Flame and found that Master [gibberish] was gone and Master Ebersol was the new First Magus. I'm glad. I'm so glad. Even if Melvin is gone. I miss him. But I don't need people. People just let you down. I have my real friends.

I feel like I'm missing something. I feel sad and upset about something and I don't know what. I see people and I get scared or nervous and I don't know why. Maybe I'm an oathsworn? I have read that they can peer into the hearts and minds of the guilty. I should ask First Magus about this. I wonder if apprentices can be oathsworn too?

Anyways, everything's fine right now.



    Things are not fine, Marcille. Let me help you.




Hello! You haven't written to me in a long time! I forgot all about you!




   Hello, dear. Go find the mirror.



What mirror?

Hello?

Coriander said that she wants to see what happens when I die. She is awful. Why does everyone fawn over her? Is it because she can control more magic missiles than me? I need to focus harder on my studies. The spells that Master gave me to learn are making more and more sense now. It's like I'm starting to see the picture instead of the brush strokes that compose it. I'm hearing the song instead of seeing the notes. It feels so exhilarating! I won't let anyone take this away from me. Especially not any insults from that bitch Coriander. I'd like to magic missile that smug smile off her stupid face.

I AM NOT A JESTER!!!

Aethelwine. I remembered to write this before I forgot. He is our friend. We can trust him even if he is a ditz sometimes.

I remembered something about a book. I was able to talk about it without losing my lunch. I can tell stories. I can wrap the truth up in parable and fantasy.

I can do this.

I did it!!!

I manifested two missiles at once!!!

TWO!!!

DOUBLE TROUBLE!!!

NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW!!!

Except Coriander. I think she wants to kill me. Her and that evil not-Nat. I stumbled upon them in a cave and I don't know what they were doing but she shouted and pulled out a wand.  That wand looked dangerous and I wasn't in a good position so I ran away as fast as I could.

I'm not sure what to do. Will master care? Or will he just see it as an opportunity for strength through adversity?

I'm frightened by the things I've seen.

Who can I talk to? The mirror. It has to be the mirror. Where did she put it? She keeps moving things around...






TWO MISSILES!
