Project Lumen: Complete. Ready to deploy when Lu returns.
Project Foster: Tested on the small scale. Used a miniature Prometheus to test. Adding finishing touches to full-scale. Will use when Lu returns.
Project Prometheus: Small scale, non-vocal version worked without flaws, moving on for full-scale, audible variant.
Project Skooma: Tested. Confirmed working. Can perform on Lu's return.
Project Requiem: Perfected. Tested in silenced study. Capable of cutting through low-strength shield rune without problem. Can finish on Lu's return.
Self-report: Feeling better. Miss Lu even more. Have severed my connection to the Voodoo doll, as it occurred to me that the connection could be abused. Won't destroy it, however, as Lu likes it. Realized how much shelf space could be saved if I turned all my tomes into ebooks. Will begin immediately.
