12:03:54AM: Attended church. Odd topic, Thorn is painful. I could heal it with goblin fruit, but perhaps that is in bad taste. Spoke with Dr. Edmund Cruces about helping with Yule… he advised I speak with Mrs. Post.
12:15:34AM: must find a lost ornament. To the goblin market I go, perhaps some friends will want to come with me.
12:24:42AM: Found some Job’s wheat on way home. There must be sad dreamers by the church. Something profoundly sad about that… But musn’t put it to waste. Perhaps I can bring some cheer with Job’s wheat that grew from the misery of others.
12:00:00 Goblin market. mission: find the ornament. The Fish merchant, or should I say the merchant that is a fish tells me to look at “the hole in the wall” Fredrick will show me where.
The merchant of “the Hole in the Wall” is a sad man. Ondrej barters with the man and trades him one of his fae-touched tarot cards for the ornament. I am in his debt.
I decide to barter with the dream merchant, Dr. Sinclair. He has a dream of Fredrick’s. Unexpected, perhaps I bartered too much… I musn’t forget… hat. What hat? The dream merchant’s hat? His hat is the old Dream merchant… is that it?
Must finish shopping for my friends. This is my first Christmas since I got back that I have people to give gifts to.
ForFriend Wren: a watch. Made from a feather of hers and Autumn’s leaf.
ForMr. Red: a watch. forged with his fire and my passion for the craft.
ForFriend Ondrej: a pocket watch with a pentacle backdrop. with the page, the knight the Queen, and the king of pentacles denoting the 3, 6, 9, and 12 position on the watch.
ForFrederick: a new sword and shield
ForFriend Jim: A slow, contemplative clock that reads all 24 hours in the day and whose chime is low and rich. I will need something of his so that the clock can truly belong to him
