Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Alacer Phasmatis on Tue May 07, 2013 7:16 pm

At times it seems as though I have no purpose, that my struggle against Bordelon—destined to failure—will mean that on the day I die, I shall have ultimately led a life in vain. In fourteen years of chasing him, I have only killed his brother; I was foolish. Lured by the sense that Thierry’s power was what kept them at large, it never occurred to me that I would have only been clipping off the tail of the serpent. Léandre, the strategist, was the head of that great dragon. How could I have guessed…? But that is no excuse. I am not a man in a position to make excuses.

If at the end of it all I cannot end his tyranny—my enemy is just a man, but so elusive that in my frustration he gains eternal proportions—then would it have been better to never have taken up the chase at all? I will have accomplished nothing but the death of one man and a futile death, because it ended and changed nothing for us. If I die, history will remember me for my failure, not for my struggle—and at the end of it all, will the struggle have been worth it?

Dear Headmaster Attawater, May 14, 1871

We would once again request postponing the graduation of Ms Rekha Isabelle Gunnerkind for the fourth consecutive year. As we have stated before, we do not doubt her knowledge either in traditional or spark-related academics. Ms Gunnerkind is quick to learn runes and their uses, and is proficient in differentiating between different types of sparks. She is able to somewhat channel sparks into smaller stones possessing stable rune chains, but still lacks the ability to properly manage stones with delicate and/or unstable runes.

Ms Gunnerkind has improved during the past year. She no longer empties stones sporadically and unintentionally, though we are still apprehensive as to this ability if she were to be placed in a state of heightened emotion near small and/or unstable stones. Ms Gunnerkind has also demonstrated the ability to direct smaller quantities of sparks into medium-sized stones, though she still will occasionally overload them or misdirect sparks into an area near the stones.

It is with all this in mind that we, her professors, recommend delaying her graduation. Ms Gunnerkind has shown progress consistent with that seen in other channelors capable of directing all sparks, and we hope she will be capable of leaving us in another two or three years.

Sincerely,

Shannen Robertson
Genevieve Hart
Ansel Ogden
Octavia Wheeler
