    Uh… in case you guys haven’t seen Cole’s response this morning… :couple_with_heart:

    Funny, I seem to recall my life was already pretty weird and complicated. I’d had visions of magic flowers and missing kids who’d turned into poetic wizards even before I “met” you.

    I know you’re having phone trouble. I don’t know if you’re getting my messages or texts, but since you kinda opened up here, I’ll do the same, and hope you see it. (Nice to know that you not seeing a text is just your hilarious and adorable inability to figure out your phone, not magic.)

    Those words are hard. Adoration. Love. Those words are hard to offer if you don’t know for sure you’re going to get them in return. And you think you barely know the “real” me. You mostly know me pre BC33. But that guy is the same guy. The things I didn’t tell you weren’t about me (mostly) and… I don’t know. You’re not the Deirdre you were either, I guess, yeah? So maybe we can meet again and see if this Cole and that Deirdre hit it off the way the old ones did.

    Thing is, I’m reaching out too you know. And sure, there’s a lot of weird between us, but I think we can juuust reach each other if we both reach together.

    Cause the words I can (and am brave enough) to use are still really good ones. Like respect. And awe. And butterflies. And hope.

    The truth is my life… the simple, uncomplicated one where I go to work and then I go home and back and forth and back and forth, it feels so much darker and scarier now that I know about this other world. The world where there’s magic. And you.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is… I’m willing to wade if you’ll wade with me.

    This makes me more happy than secretly cheering for the love lives of two people I haven’t actually met should make me

    I’m glad everything went okay. I’m curious what will come of this spell if anything. Fingers crossed.

    And speaking of spell sickness…

    I’m just starting to turn the corner.

    The after-effects of the communion affinity are already tough to handle, but Yuridia thinks it hit me especially hard this time because I left the last “passage” open for eleven days so I could make sure I heard from you. Apparently, constantly casting a spell for nearly two weeks where your consciousness is being beamed across the world is bad. You learn something new every day.

    Good news, Martin completed his search, and I’ve spoken with him. I didn’t realize how good it would be to reconnect with that particular old friend. The first thing he asked was if you all were okay back there behind the wall. He also mentioned that he’s looking for some of our other old friends, particularly Aether, and he would update when he had information. Martin’s on the case.

    Less than good news…

    The herald isn’t well, and we don’t know how much time she has left. We thought she would hang on at least until whatever thing happened to usher in the new age, but we’re not sure now. She sees things, and we’re no longer sure if they’re visions, or her mind finally failing. There’s not enough power left for her to see through the dark, but now we don’t know if she would even be coherent enough to try. She talks about oracles being reborn, and never-ending seasons, and massive mechanical creatures filling the sky. Her granddaughter is with her, but her daughter has refused the call. She can’t bring herself to believe, and there’s nothing else we can do without risking the sanctuary. The herald taught us all to try and accept everything while expecting nothing, but I can’t help but wish she could stay. She changed my life. She gave me clarity when I was lost.

    I know the sanctuary will live on without her. I just don’t want it to.

    Please tell me you have good news.
