ARENDELLE – In her most dramatic move yet, the queen unveiled Arendelle’s most powerful warship at a sober military ceremony with Mattias in the morning. The recommissioning of Muspelheim comes as rumours swirl amongst Arendelle’s political circles about the impending return of Anna’s prime minister, the noblewoman Vi, from London.
At the ceremony, Anna formally conferred responsibility of the ship on Hilde, who doubles as both General Mattias’ second-in-command and Vi’s bodyguard-cum-lieutenant.
“It’s an indication of how far we’ve come, for me to pass Muspelheim back into the hands of her original owners,” she told the press. “I do this with clear eyes and an enthusiastic heart. I have no regrets.”

It’s been weird since I confiscated and decommissioned Muspelheim. I expected the Countess to rage and try to exact revenge somehow, but not only has she backed off, but our correspondence has grown more frequent, our words more tender and understanding. The mood isn’t one of raring-to-go rivals, but somewhat reluctant combatants.
The Snow Herald continues to wrangle with this paper (which has my column), over the kingdom’s direction. Vi’s supporters in parliament and commerce are still too strong for my liking. I’m furious with Vi for hurting Maren, and Maren’s eager to have a rematch with her. But apart from the tragic loss of several of Mattias’ men and Vi’s Runic Knights, things are pretty much the same here after the Battle of the Fjord.
