Gud by Diary.
I do apologize for the crappy spelling and grammar in this Entry. The idea is this is the first Entry in Marlene's diary, and what seven (almost eight)-year-old, even a princess, has proper writing skills?
Very soon-ish I will be posting my made-up version of the Gaean dating system on my deviantArt page. That will explain the 'dates' that you'll see at the top of the Entries. For right now, just know that this entry is written at the end of the first month of the year, seventeen years pre-Series.
Oh, and I will NOT be following the Compendium's color calender; I made my own up for the ease of my own mind.
