Thou art mistaken, Royal Advisor. I am bound by no laws and no schedules save for my own whims. When my hunt proved infuriating, I decided that I cared not, and returned here to the libraries to vent my wrath upon the volumes therein...
But... No, I... My anger dissipated more quickly from my chest than I had expected, and I felt... no need for such an impetuous act. Hence, I have merely turned my attentions to this single notebook, which is well worth the destruction.
I have no need of thee at the moment, so yes, I shall grant thee leave to toy with thy enemies as thou wilt. But heed my words - once I have reduced these foolish demands of etiquette into cinder between my claws, we shall pay yet another visit to what remains of the Heart, for I crave to delve deeper still into the Ritual that thou hast been working alongside me these past weeks. The tapestry of magic that we have woven thus far has sparked a fierce joy throughout my soul - hampered though we have been by my misguided father.
How can he not comprehend that his continued resistance is counter to the plans that he and I once fervently discussed? Can he not trust that I do only what I must?! His long-term hopes for this Ritual were accomplished overnight by our alternations - why does that fool still fail to see it?!
It matters not! I can act without anyone's permission. The Ritual calls me back... I have so much deeper to delve. Already I grow restless at the thought of it... so do not keep me waiting long, Advisor, lest my temper turn to thee!
