[ The journal’s video feed clicks on to reveal the exterior of
House Castle 44, with both Helios and Saori seated outside at one of the little picnic tables in the shade of the stone tower they now call home. It’s been a few days since Saori returned home from her temporary stay with Morrigan, though it’s with bad news. The succubus had left Luceti. After discussing it with Helios, the two of them had figured that addressing that and several other things at once would be a good idea. They both had related business, after all. ]
Good afternoon Luceti.
Helios and I have a few announcements for everyone, and thought it’d be easiest if we just did them all at once.
Firstly, I regret to inform any of her friends that Morrigan Aensland has returned home. She’s left a handful of letters for most of the people that she knew, so if you knew her, please come by House 44 and I’ll pass it on to you.
[ As she finishes, Helios steps in, this time with a bit of good news to break up the bad. ]
Ah, and for my part, I’d like to announce that I’ll be restarting the Magic Club begun by Harry Dresden. We h-haven’t had a meeting for some time, but I think that it’s time we-we changed that, hm? I-I’d like for the first meeting to be a few weeks into July, if that’s alright with everyone? That way we can perhaps incorporate some New Feathers into it as well.
[ There’s another pause as they both look at one another and smile. The last announcement is something a bit fun for both of them, a way to put the troubles of the past few weeks behind them and have a little bit of fun. ]
And finally, we’ve decided to host a party for the Summer Solstice that’s coming up in a few days. We’ll be setting up a little party ground on the shore of the Southern Lake, and there will be food, music, dancing, and other things like that.
[ Saori nods, chiming in cheerily. The Solstice wasn’t a holiday in her native Japan, but there were other meanings it had for her personally, so she’s going along with it. After all, aren’t parties great? ]
Helios and I will be making quite a lot of food, and the weather promises to be absolutely splendid so please think about coming to visit. If anyone else would like to help with the preparations, we won’t turn away volunteers, either.
The Solstice is the 21st, this Friday, so please don’t forget. We’ll be starting with lunch and moving from there.
[ With a smile, Saori clicks off the video feed. But that’s not quite the end of the transmission. Helios adds yet another small announcement, filtered carefully away from a certain someone. ]

Ah, and there’s one more thing. The solstice is also Max’s birthday so…we’d like to have an extra special part of the party be for his birthday. So please mark that on your c-calendar and if you cannot make it send Max a congratulations on another year.
[ Now the feed ends for good. For housemates, people coming for letters, or people just wanting to come by to chat in person both Helios and Saori will be around House 44 all day. Don’t be shy…come on by! ]
