JOURNAL ENTRY 1
Ok so I'm not exactly sure how to start this off. I've been meaning to keep a journal. But I never really bothered too. I guess since I'm about to start training for the Allies it may as well be a good time to start. Though, I'm not sure if it's a good idea. To be honest, I'm not sure why I keep writing. You don't even know who I am. Then again you are a book, so I don't quite know how you would. Ok I guess it's time for introductions then. Hi, my name's Florist. I live in the Kingdom of Dime. I realize not everyone knows about Kingdoms other than their own residents. So I should probably tell you about it. In history we're taught about The "Separation". When society was separated based on identity. But we aren't taught about the lands that the "Separation" divided us into. Since I am studying for the Allies I know all about them. This was special information given to me in preparation for my training. To be honest I'm lucky to know this information. The realm of Dime contains people who identify as Demisexual. In my Kingdom, we do not experience sexual attraction until a deep bond is formed with our interest. We only experience sexual attraction to those we are close to after we've become close to them. Otherwise, we experience no attraction . This is the Kingdom of Dime. This is where I'm from. I know that training to be a representative and studying for the Allies, is a lot of work. And I know I may not be chosen. However, I feel like the Kingdoms are interesting in their own right. I find them fascinating and it's hard to believe we never studied about them in school. I want to learn more about them. I mean I know about them but I don't "know" about them. I want to experience first hand what they do. I realize the only way to do this is to become a member of the Allies. To visit the Kingdoms is my dream and I honestly need to fulfill it. So that's an introduction to me. I hope this journal thing works out. I don't know if it will or won't but I plan on writing about my experiences in training. That's why no one else can see this book. It's a secret. If anyone found out...well that doesn't matter. All that matters is that I'm Florist and this is me.
Journal ENTRY 2
Alright training starts tomorrow. I'm not sure how to feel about it. On one hand I may finally have a chance at visiting other kingdoms, on the other I will encounter all new environments completely foreign to me. Not only that but due to The "Separation" I have to lie. I can't be open about my sexuality when I visit them. That's a terrifying thought. Here everyone just excepts that you are the way you are but not in other kingdoms. I know it's a long shot that I'll be one of the Allies. But I still fear the implications of becoming one. I don't know what to do about these thoughts. About these fears. But I know it's something I need to face. Something that is going to be a challenge but also something I need to take head on. So here's to me. Going forth into training.
JOURNAL ENTRY 3
Alright so I'll be leaving for training this afternoon. I realize I keep talking about the Allies and my training and you may not know what that is. I think it's near impossible to not know, it's public knowledge anyone in any kingdom knows but I realize you're a book and books aren't sentient so I may as well explain. The Allies is an organization originally founded after The "Separation". It is an organization that has over fifty different representatives for over 50 different kingdoms. At the age of thirteen we live within the Kingdom of Question there we learn of different identities and then sort ourselves into one. Once then were sent to a kingdom accordingly. However the kingdoms need to know who's being sorted and to where. They need communication with each other. This is what the Allies do. The Allies have one reprehensive from each kingdom (with exceptions) and they handle all political and social justice issues. They also get to go undercover in five Kingdoms depending on who they choose to have communications with. They do this to learn more about the Kingdoms in question. This is a big deal. It's important and it's a high ranking position. Once your chosen you even get to meet the Empress. I can't tell you how incredible that would be. There are several people who are allowed to train for the allies. I was allowed this honor. The training process itself is a little different though. It takes place within several Training Grounds located in the realm of Tissfim. I don't know much about this land. No one really does. But were sent to different grounds there. We won't get to interact with any of the locals or even get to leave the grounds but it's still an amazing experience. I leave this afternoon. I'm a little worried a little anxious and a little scared. I'm not sure if I really want to go through with this sometimes. But it's ok, don't worry about it. I know I may not be ready but I've trained for this. I can handle it. Ready or not I'm going. Wish me luck.
