Journal entry 2

My first official shift went well. The garden on board is amazing it helps supply the ship and keep the air clean. Its also huge. There is even a aquaponics set up with crawdads in it. Halfway through my familiarization tour all midshipmen were called to their quarters to meet a new midshipman. It turns out it was a alfer from the palace. He is rather handsome and quite nice. He seems to have a good sense of humor. I think I rather like him. He even helped with our latrine duty which he did not have to. I had a magnificent view as the ship left port through the windows in the garden. The colors were amazing and the Lieutenant Commander order myself and the Lieutenant to watch the ship leave port which was most generous of him. Today I mostly did weeding and carrying water to water the plants. Later in the evening I gave my fellow day shift midshipmen that were interested a tour of the garden. We brought Selene's owl friend with us who i got to met as well today for the first time. All and all it was a good day.

Happy conception day to me. I suspect its not something lots of folk can say for themselves. Today is has become my tradition for the last few years, I am going to engage in something entirely new and different. I bid goodbye to my fellow druids who raised me. I told them I was off to Glimmerfell to sign up to the navy. One of them asked me why ever for? I told him star flowers and space and the chance to travel to different worlds and see new things. Once I got to ride on a small one briefly it was amazing and I can't wait to do it again and see the bigger ones in person. I was assigned up to the Arianrhods Pride a dreadnought class ship. She is absolutely beautiful. My fellow midshipmen seem to be a interesting lot I look forward to getting to know them. The ship has a what I consider large library. I have never seen so many books in one place before. Assigned to shadow Lieutenant Tremane a druid in the ships garden. His dad is a commander and chief druid. I did not get a chance to get a good look at the garden yet but I will tomorrow at first watch. One of my fellow midshipmen smoked a cigar in our quarters and we all got in trouble for it. Who knew it was against the rules not I but none of us said who did it to the Lt that showed up. I suspect from his manner that no matter what was happening in the Midshipman's quarters he would have found a way to assign us two weeks Latrine duty. I stayed up late to help since I was assigned to day watch. Going to be a long two weeks staying up late to do my share. I probably could have begged out of it but I didn't want to get off on the wrong foot with my fellow Midshipman after all I have five years with them. About half my fellows already seem to have experiences with life on board a ship. I am doing my best to emulate them.

Wow we got asked for to do extra work for extra pay. Understand its shifting cargo hard work, but we are getting three gold a day for it so I am not complaining. So there we are down on the docks working our asses off when some of us middies noticed that something fishy is going on. We dutifully report to the quartermaster. We learn that there are diamonds on this planet but they are forbiden for export unless they have been made into something as there is no way to tell if they have been mined by slaves. Conflict diamonds as it were blood diamonds. I had no idea that such things happen animals don't behave this way. I still have so much to learn about the behaviors of the so called civilized elves. Myself and my fellow middies are then asked to move the affected crates to the armory. We are told to expect some interference potentially. We prepare ourselves accordingly . I am nervous we are moving conflict diamonds they are very valuable, the kind of things people might kill for. Someone could die maybe even one of my new friends. I am well aware that death is part of the cycle of life, but I have quickly become quite fond of my new found companions and fellow middies. I will admit perhaps having quickly developed a more then friendly interest in one of my companions as well and I would hate to have Xerxes gone. We get approached by some enlisted well moving our first crate. They ask us to let them to take the diamonds from the crate to avoid a lot of people getting into trouble. We refuse and go right to attack perfering to strike first then be caught off guard. We take our opponents down siftly some of them flee. We manage to capture two. That was intense thankfully no deaths and no serious wounds. (draft/cliffnotes) Captain asks us if we want to do extra work middies all agree. Assigned to moving cargo. We notice some enlisted drooping small bags in cargo crates. We debate what to do and decide to inform the quartermaster. He discovers smuggled diamonds. We are asked to transport all the affected crates to the armory. Some enlisted approach us well doing so and ask us to let them take the diamonds out of the crates. We refuse and prepare to fight. They flee we manage to capture two of them. We stopped pursuit of the remainder becouse we had the feeling they were trying to lead us into a trap. Crowley tries to extract info but fails. Military police come and take custody of our captured enlisted. They march them to the armory where the brig is. Lieutenant white oak summons us to office to ask if we know anything about captain golden bough who was implicated in the diamond smuggling we don't . We are shown to barracks clean up and go to supper. We certainly eared our pay today. Most of us are exhausted I am merely tired. I am used to a long hard day of work. When we got back to barracks some of us decided to go check out the park that it seemed like the ambush was going to be in. Vonvin holds hands with the prince. When we noticed that Arden had stayed back selene and ruavel went back. There they discovered that our quarters had been invaded between the and Arden they apprehended the invaders. Arden says they were going though our stuff when we check it there is nothing missing but we do discover bags of conflict diamonds. We then immideatly on my suggestion turn them in. The Ceo is glad we wake him up for this. there is some discussion about a sylven creature we discovered in the park we discover it was a fawn. the ceo suggests if we approach it differently we might manage some more information out of it. The fawns info leads us to understand the fellows who tried to lead us into a ambush earlier that day went through the park and on to the golf course.

Vonvin is 5 feet and 100 lbs. She has long platinum blond hair and that is often tied back in a pony tail when she is not attending a formal occasion which is practically never if she can help it. She dislikes clothing and often wears as little of it as the weather and environment allow. She has pale violet eyes that border on silvered looking. She has pierced ears but does not wear earrings most of the time. For a time when she was younger she was always sporting different ones but as she got older she often felt they were in the way and seldom wears them now. She enjoys food the sweeter the better as far as she is concerned. She likes people one on one and can be quite chatty in those kinds of situations. However the more people there is around her the quieter she gets saving her words for when there is something important to say. She can oft times be found in the woods singing to the plants and animals around her. She has been known to spend hours following bees or lost in the close examination of things from flowers to deceased animal remains.


Vonvin (Vonvin which is an Alfar term meaning basicly (s)he has good luck) is the daughter of Lady Delia Starsong an middle aged retired Alfar druidess who died during birth from hemorrhaging . She was conceived with a handsome young ranger on the first day of the Spring Equinox after a tryst in the woods while her mother was out gathering dew from moon-flowers. She was raised by the druids on Glimmerfell as a community much like a community mascot or pet. She spent most of her childhood in the woods of Glimmerfell running mostly wild. As a young adult she was given her own place in the woods and eventually it was strongly suggested in a manner that she dare not say no to her elders she spent some time in formal lessons as to appropriate Alfar etiquette.
