    Summary

    I'm sure given your position you already know about the advent of the General Data Protection Regulation next year, wrote Peter Lukas, to Elias Bouchard. However, the Lukas family wishes to be crystal clear that our continued investment is contingent upon the Institute taking its responsibilities with regards to privacy and confidentiality seriously.

    The Magnus Institute hires a Data Protection Officer. He sets about diligently booking in meetings, writing policy documents, and training all the staff in the importance of confidentiality. Now if only he could get hold of the Head Archivist, who seems to have vanished again...

    (Jon is only trying to save the world, but apparently some people think he should still be doing his day job.)

    [COMMENT: Jonathan Sims] Hubris is unwise in these matters. EXPERT OPINION.
    -
    [COMMENT: Aimee Lord] Mr Sims has marked all his comments as expert opinion, possibly due to a misunderstanding of #2 in the "read me" section? @Lucy.Patel can you check whether this is clinically relevant advice or just Mr Sims being "colourful"?
    -
    [COMMENT: Lucy Patel] Mr Sims is still out of office with no known return date. Spoke to Martin Blackwood, Archival Assistant, who advised that if Mr Sims is warning against hubris, it should probably be taken seriously.

    Summary

    Three weeks into their delightful slog across Westeros, during yet another charming day of shitting in the woods, eating half-raw squirrel, and trudging his feet bloody, the single most dour and uninteresting woman Jaime had ever met in all of Westeros stopped in the middle of a field, drew a deep breath, and said, “When I was seven, my aunt came to visit with her son. My father told me that as the daughter of the house, it was my duty to show hospitality to my guests and to be gracious to them. I wanted to make him proud. So for three weeks, I let my cousin follow me around and talk to me about spiders.”
