eighty-eighth labyrinth (backdated to the 21st)

[Nearly two weeks later and Felix can count it as a particular accomplishment that he's managed not to die, though it feels marginal in some areas. He sits in the cabin he's claimed as his own, huddled against the fire he's managed to build in the fireplace, over which hangs a small cooking pot. Inside that, he's making a try at cooking beans, which is one of the few things he's managed to find lying around. He pokes at it every once in awhile and wonders how it is that he's become so numb to all of this.

He reaches a hand out from the blanket he's wrapped himself in and opens his journal, which he addresses tiredly, though in his usual tone of lazy decorum.

How is everyone doing?

I thought perhaps, rather than starve by ourselves, we could try to pool our resources for a passable meal. I'm working on beans, if I manage not to scorch them. And I've a few jars of fruit as well. I'd be happy to share. [He'd also be happy to not be alone, and the note of lonely desperation in his voice is hard to miss.]

How are you-

[ Duke not everyone can cook for themselves or is comfortable living alone. ]

Take them off the fire, I'll help.

[ And bring something. Like dried meat, he has some of that left right? They could make a soup. ]

[ Felix was the one who offered the possibility of burning the food! That meant that he thought he would probably do so, right? Right.

Okay it takes longer for Duke to get there than might be expected. Because Duke got ready to leave, realized how cold it was, and went back inside to find more of that clothing to layer up. He misses that little charm Felix tried out right now.

Thump thump, this is the right place right? Duke is bundled up perhaps a bit much, he can't really tell.

[ Duke just sort of rumbles in agreement. It's too cold for words just now, so he just steps in and shuts that door and steps in place for a second. Warming up is important. ]

... I forget not everyone is used to cooking over fires. [ There, he's sorry for making you sound grumpy. ]

I still had some dried meat. We could turn it into stew or something like that.

[ Duke assumes this means Felix would like.. bean and meat stew. Oh well, Duke's probably eaten worse. ]

Is 'we' the rest of the mages?

[ Hello Fire his friend. Duke spends a moment just basking, before he reaches for the pot and sets to cooking. ]

Basic directions were given by knights. [ Remember, ages and ages ago, when he said he used to be one? ]

Watching cooks as a child, and then my friend didn't eat, so I had to unless I wanted to eat uncooked... everything.

I think any professional cook would find what I make to be rather sub-par. [ ... So this stew-attempt is going to taste like meat and beans cooked together, rather than.. stew.

Ahh, nobles and what they consider important to learn.
