Subject: First day of diplomatic training course 

Hi hi, 

They were not lying when they said it would be an intensive course. Only just got back to my hotel room after the welcome reception. After the opening this morning we had a lecture about public speaking and in the afternoon we had various exercises and finally had to do a short speech ourselves. For later in the week we have to prepare a larger one... 

Quite a bit of it was familiar from my 'public speaking' class during high school, but I learned quite a few new pointers as well as refreshing old skills. 

I have some reading to finish up for tomorrow and am going to head to bed then. 

See you this weekend,

It took a while, but I've finally run down what those black and white pebbles we found mean.

(when research fails, ask a magic user. In this case, my mum)

The pebbles are an invitation of sorts. To those in the know, there's this thing called the Winding Way - it's kind of like a magical union. Two paths - the light and the dark. By giving us the rocks, the Powers That Be have told us that they're watching us and that they'll be giving us a choice as to which path we want to take on the Way once they're satisfied we're worth it. There will be tests, apparently.

Typical wanker bullshit.

I'm not going to tell you how to choose. The whole point of my working with you lot is to let you now that your lives are exactly that. YOUR lives. My personal issues about this whole thing aside, if you want to take part, then that's your choice. But remember - no-one gets to tell you how to live your lives. No-one gets to use you. You aren't tools, you aren't power sources, you aren't weapons. You're yourselves.

Keep alert, be aware that we're all targets right now, and don't let anyone make you do something you don't want to do. Look out for each other. I'll be letting Charles and the rest of the team-types know what's going on, so if you're unsure of anything and can't reach me, talk to one of them.

Mr. Worthington,

I just received word I have been accepted in a special short summer program called 'The Fundamentals of Diplomacy'. It teaches basic diplomatic skills, along with some lectures etc and is held on August 7-20. It does run from nine in the morning till in the evening with activities in the weekends as well...

Thanking in advance,

Remember that diplomatic skills program I told you about? I got in!!! Even despite being waitlisted... 

It's going to be intensive, but I am really looking forward to it!

(1/2) So when are you taking your kids back?

(2/2) Not that I don't love being a bad influence but teaching them how to bring things to life just to annoy you seems more appealing every day.

All jokes aside - have we all gotten these mysterious black and white rocks? Because I'm starting to think they're more than just geology samples.

A small, gift-wrapped box, with this inside, and a card.

Written in the card:

Protection charms aren't hokey if they're from an actual magic person, right?

Anyways, happy birthday old lady.

Smuggled into Topaz's suite and left on the kitchen counter, a small gift-wrapped box. Inside is a set of car keys on a keychain with a little stuffie witch on a broomstick. The note reads:

It's not fancy or even brand new, but I figured every adult needs their own wheels. Check out the garage.

Happy Birthday,
