[When Briseis woke the next morning to find that Helen was gone, she had no idea what she was supposed to do. She understood Helen's actions - she'd wanted to do this on her own and so she'd made it happened. Briseis couldn't blame the other woman for lying.

But now she was left with the knowledge that Helen had gone somewhere in America to do something stupid and dangerous and Briseis wasn't sure she was going to come back. Judging by the photo she'd left of the two of them, Helen didn't seem to think she was coming back either.

And maybe she could tell someone but... if Helen wanted to do this, then Briseis couldn't take it from her. They were both women who had had their choices constantly stolen from them, women who had never been able to make their own fates. Briseis of all people couldn't deny her friend.

So all she could do was keep quiet and try and find out where Helen had gone.]

Hey all! Just a quick intro. I'm bringing back my Iris. She's basically the Olympians messenger of old. She personifies the rainbow (OH and her hair changes colors based on her mood). She also has a twin sister named Arke, who was the messenger for the Titans, so they were on opposite sides of the Titanomachy. These days she works for Hera, though she's more of an errand girl than anything, but she does still send messages for the Olympians whenever they need her. Which now isn't very often since they can just do whatever the heck they want when they want.

She was married to the god Zephyros, and before that she was Morpheus' consort. So if anyone wants to pick either of them up (particularly Morpheus cause he rocks) that would be FAB! There would also be some awkward silences because she and Hypnos have an on-again-off-again flint on occasion, though not so much now with Pasithea around.

ANYWHO. Love you guys!

Do you happen to know what is going on with Helen? Menelaus is worried and for good reason. I need to know what she is up to.

I've been with my sister again for the last two months and I don't think we bothered to leave the house until yesterday. I'm so glad I came to the US to be with her.

I've never been so happy. All that I went through, it was worth it to get to here.

I'm not complaining because having Ella here is wonderful, especially with Greta living in Kansas now, but I worry sometimes. I worry that Ella will get so used to being here that she won't want to leave when Clio returns. And I am worried I won't want to let her leave either. And then Clio will have me killed.

She's just the most delightful little girl in the world and having her around full time has been amazing, even as I miss Clio immensely. I'm going to miss her. I want Clio back sooner rather than later in every other sense but the one where it means Ella will spend most of her time away again.

[Since coming back to Andromache, Hector still could not tear himself from helping his childish little brother. He kept Paris away from the city and visited him often when he wasn't on the base. That took him away from his wife, as family and ambition always did. Hector may not like his brother, but he was still of his blood. He was emerged in Paris' bad choices, and that never seemed to change. But, he missed Andromache, she deserved so much better than the husband he had been and the husband he'd become.]

My duties seem to always lie within the protection of others. Andromache, I will see you again soon. Please forgive me for being away this week I think Paris is restless.

I've started reading to children at work for story time. It's once a day for now. Sometimes one of the children will sit in my lap as I read. In a way, it fills an empty space I've felt for a long time. At the same time, I miss my boys even more.

I ran into none other than Helen in the park today. She was acting very oddly, like she was dying or something. If only we were so lucky.

I ran into your mother on my way home today. She gave me something to give to you. I didn't tell her I've seen you or that you're around. I don't think she has any idea.

Most of you know that the film they made about my life (starring He Who Must Not Be Named) isn't my favorite. And my mother would probably set Oliver Stone on fire if she ever met him. But I couldn't sleep tonight, so I put it on anyway. (Of course I own it. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be.)

And visually, it's gorgeous. Color and motion and emotion, jumping all over the screen and practically forcing you to pay attention. Because they do get the big things right, I'll give them that. The battles, the marriages, the conquering. The assassination attempts, the discontent, and all the death. It's the little things they leave out. They don't talk about how Ptolemy used to yell at me for leaving my maps and books in disarray. They don't recall how Hephaistion used to do increasingly ridiculous things to try to get me to laugh. Nothing is remembered about how Cleitus was one of the few who was unafraid to call me on my bullshit, and he stayed unafraid right up until I murdered him in a drunken rage.

That always gets remembered. Much as I wish it didn't. That's one of the things I wish I could take back.

I miss my old friends. And my mother. I've been alive and alone for so long, having to go on without them has become a dull ache in my heart that I always carry with me. The wine quiets it for a while, but sooner or later, I always have to face it again. The gods sent Thessalonike to me at just the right time, knowing she's around helps to lift my spirits a bit.

I'm tired. I'm drunk. I'm old. I'm lonely.

I'm going to bed.

[From a dreamlike state, Oenone gasps for air. Another prophecy. Another vision of the slaying of someone who was once dear to her. This time the vision was less clear. She could not make out those involved. She only remembers seeing his face. Arrogant and laughing, unaware it may be his last death. The place in her vision makes no sense. It felt strange... as though it is a place no immortal should go. Not the Underworld. Not lands unknown to the individual. A place in this very country. Oenone does not know this place. It is a place that scares her.

Nearly a year has passed since Oenone's last prophecy. She is uncertain whether to so much as breathe a word of it. No one listens to her anymore. What is the point?]

Dreams will come and dreams will pass, but will those of whom I dream listen at last?

Doubtful. Arrogance will be the undoing and the end.

I've managed to make it through the week without too much lovey-dovey affection being shoved in my face. And by that, I mean I haven't been hit by any arrows because I have no reason for one. Although I did witness my fair share of adolescent "love". I did receive an odd anonymous letter that went directly into the trash. It looked suspiciously untrustworthy.

So Electra and I went to the shooting range on Wednesday, and then Friday she dropped by the gym. And in case anyone's wondering whether or not she could kick your ass, the answer is: she definitely can. She even gave me a run for my money, to the point where we had to have the bout called because no one was going to concede.

And then we got pizza and beers, because we're apparently frat boys. Still a good Friday.

[After making way too many cookies in a midnight snack raid, Greed sent the remaining cookies in gift boxes to local churches laced with weed. The donations were from one of their "regular patrons". If it worked he'd try it again and see how many church members were high during their next service. And not to forget Glutt, Greed sent him a batch too with a note that said 'They're not rancid, just made with weed'.]

I wonder how crazy the old ladies at church get when they eat cookies made with weed? I've got inside intel keeping me up to date so I can get it on video. It will so go viral.

Valentine's Shenanigans  
I posted Eros' Valentine's Shenanigans. For those that wanted to do such things. This year he sent sealed envelopes with magic infused glitter once the cards are opened, and roses with magic petals when one smells their aroma. This way more than the intended party may be affected. This way a innocent bystander may get a whiff or even a sprinkle of glitter. Maybe the card is given to someone else. Whatever happens, be creative. I was hoping this way his "magic" doesn't wear off so-to-say just after 24-48 hours. This way it can keep going a little longer given how or who picks up the magic---if that makes sense.

Forgive the lateness as I know some of you are in time zones that have already had Valentine's Day. Here it is still going. I did this year in memory to my Dad as he was always hoping to spread joy, laughter and a smile on someone's face.

Thank you,

[Poseidon & Co.]
