  1. Maerad: Travels North

    I think I must visit my Pilanel relatives in Murask. Now that the Singing is over, I guess I have time on my hands...

  2. Maerad: What Now?

    What am I going to do now? Now that the Dark is gone, I don't have any idea what I will do.

    I always thought that I would go to a School, Innail or Lirigon maybe, and become a real Bard.

    But now that I am faced with the choice, I find I have no idea what to do.

  3. Maerad: Poetry

    I cannot see the simple things
    The feathers on a sparrow's wing
    The things that loom above my head
    Are what I see, and what I dread.

    I feel so empty, so alone
    It's like my heart is made of stone
    Now that the deed I did is done
    I feel that now I have to run

    After the Song of Trees was sung
    After the Singing was finally done
    I feel like I just want to cry
    To go, to leave, to say goodbye

    It's
    ...

  4. Maerad:The Pilanel and the Jussacks

    I'm about confused about the relationship between the peoples of the Pilanel and the Jussacks.

    Since the sorcerer that controlled then, Amusk, is gone, what will the Jussacks do? I hope that the Pilanel and Jussacks can reach an agreement. Maybe I'm hopeing for too much, but I think it may happen.

  5. Maerad: A Sense of Loss

    There are things that are not all they seem.

    It seems that our sense of death is not what it used to be.

    Old friends are coming back. Dernhil is alive. Zelkia is alive.

    And the spring is awakening in Annar.

    I am in Innail now, the place that I think will always be my home, the place that is my home even more than Pellinor is. I am surrounded by the place I love and people I love.

    So why do I feel a sense of loss?

  6. Maerad: Reflections

    An excerpt from my diary, shortly after I left Gilman's Cot:

    My whole life has changed. I am free of that horrible place. I am a slave of Gilman's Cot no longer.

    I was rescued by a strange man. I don't know what to think of him. His name is Cadvan. Cadvan of Lirigon. And he has introduced me to a world I never knew existed. Maybe...Maybe it was the world my mother belonged in.

    I have been told of lost cities, and strange people called Bards. He

  7. Maerad: Mixed Emotions

    I feel so alone.

    I don't know why I feel alone, but I do. I feel like I'm swimming in a vast ocean with no other form of life in it; no animals or plants. Only me.

    I know there's no reason to feel this way, especially when so many people care about me: Saliman, Silvia, Hem...

    And Cadvan.

    Especially Cadvan.

    Every time I think about Cadvan and me, I get a flutter in my chest, like there's a butterfly trapped inside my heart. ...

  8. Maerad: Later...

    I was talking to Hem today and he was telling me about his friend named Zelkia. He says she died but I'm not so sure after looking at this new blog.
    Look...

    I wonder if this is the same person...

    Should I tell Hem?

  9. I am Maerad of Pellinor.

    I am Maerad.
    Maerad of Pellinor, that's what they call me.
    I am also known as the Fated, the One.
    But it's not easy!

    I guess you wouldn't know how hard it is to be the Fated One, The Fire Lily, the One who will defeat the Nameless in his darkest rising.

    I know what everybody wants me to do.

    But this is going to be about me.
