Very nice piece of writing, DFK! That Fiona is a fair stubborn girl. Definitely kin to Darcy.

Thank you, Thank you, Jerusha! Washburn is back with his friends. Darcy, Aliset and Washburn are back in fellowship. And wonderfully writen to get us to this point.
Now we need to add Columcil and Fiona to our fellowship and all will be right as rain.

I have turned my eye back in time a little to enjoy what had gone before. And I came across a passage written by Eve that made me laugh. Post 156, Aliset is at St Brigid's nunnery and wondering what has happened to their fellowship.

Quote
... practically from the moment they'd arrived, her companions had scattered seemingly to the four winds!  Annoyance welled up in her.  How very much like men they were, wandering apart and dashing hither and yon acting all heroic rather than sticking together and covering each other's backs like sensible folk! She stifled a laugh as the irony dawned on her.  Of course they were acting like men, daft creatures!  They were men!  She just hoped, under the circumstances, that all their dashing about wouldn't get them killed, and especially not on her behalf. ... She'd grown curiously attached to the lot of them in the past few days, even though keeping up with them right now seemed to be more useless than attempting to herd cats.

So I say to Eve and to Jerusha, Revanne, and Derynfank,  time to see if we can fully herd all the cats (our fellowship) into one local.
P.S. and as I say this, I am concerned at what may happen next.

I'm not. Good things will happen next. It will be lots of fun. Feyd needs to join back up at some point.

Sometimes, Feyd (or Bynw) seems to have an odd idea of fun.  But I'm sure it will be interesting.

Columcil is very careful with his coin, rarely having had any, but he will happily spend some of his gold if such wondrous dice are to be bought.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Other than the image description and art credits, I'm posting this without comment.   ;D

Image Description:  The image is a three-panel black-and-white comic strip.  In the first panel, a stick figure is wearing a t-shirt that reads, "No fear," and there is another person peeking in from the right side of the panel.  The second panel has been edited to read, "DM: 'Oh, this is going to be REAL interesting.'"  In the third panel, the t-shirt on the stick figure now reads, "One fear."

The original comic was drawn by Branson Reese of Escape From Heaven.  (Full webcomic can be found at escapefromheaven dot tumblr dot com but be advised a number of the strips are not safe for work and may be offensive.)  The middle panel edit was done by a user who goes by bard on Pillowfort dot io, a start-up social media site that is still in beta.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Yea, the rebels are captured!  Clever of Father Columcil to suggest that Jaxom might be the one to escort the rebels to Droghera, leaving Columcil behind with Fiona and her family with the potential to be joined by Darcy and Aliset.  Jaxom's back over to you, Earl Brendan, and you can keep him this time!  ;D

 :D I'M sure we will continue to deal with Jaxom  until the rebellion  is over. Poor Columcil , I have certainly given him a hard time. I think he may feel he needs a period of retreat to recover from riding herd on  Fiona. It will be a relief when  Darcy, Aliset , and Wash arrive to help. Of course then Wash  will also need attention. Someone should give the priest a medal  for dealing with all this. Maybe someone will mention it to Kelson .

a priest should not have any need of a medal. he should be a humble man. a servent to all as was instructed by our Lord to his disciples if they were to follow Him.

Even a humble servant of God needs a bit of rest from time to time!  ;)

ETA:  And Fr. Columcil is certainly a priest, but he is also still a human being who probably likes to feel appreciated, re: medal or any other secular award.  :D

While doing some rereading it has occurred to me that the last time Washburn saw Jaxom, they were in a sword fight over Jaxom's despicable act.  Wash vowed harm to the man the next time he saw him. Our humble priest and good seaman may have their hands full keeping Wash from carrying out his vow, that is if Jaxom is still there when he arrives. ((Laurna snickers))

Well done Fiona for finding the rebels, she may yet learn to heed our good Father Columcil's council (or maybe not with that I'sles blood in her veins. ) and praise to Father Columcil for using his best weapon. A pat on the doggies heads from me.

Have you shared this point of view with Dennis Arilan, or even more pertinently with Edmund Loris?

Speaking personally, the humble and forebearing nature of a priest can be deleteriously affected if one is unwary enough to be tempted into a game involving Torenthi dice.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
