Leon walked the corridor leading to the royal quarters. The silence of the halls and the echoing of his footsteps in the once lively castle stood out as a stark reminder of the new normal that had come over the kingdom. Arthur had been gone nearly a month now and the pall that still reigned over the castle and Camelot in general was evident. Guinevere was doing her best to maintain composed in an uncertain time, but he knew she was struggling. He saw it at their daily Round Table meetings: the faint creases growing at the corners of her eyes and her once cheerful demeanor taken on that of a widow—and sovereign—faced with a new reality. Compounded with the loss of Arthur was Merlin 's absence. He may have been a servant in name, but only now …show more content…
Guinevere said that Merlin had made a brief appearance in Camelot a week and a half prior—long enough to drop off some letters for her and Gaius and leave without so much of a word to anyone else. That pained him too—that neither he, nor Percival, received a letter. There was still so much unresolved between them, so much he wanted to ask...but he hadn 't a clue where his old friend was or if he 'd ever appear in Camelot again. He made it to the royal chambers and knocked. Guinevere 's maidservant Meliora opened the door. "The Queen will be with you in a moment," she said, her voice quiet. She was a new addition, had only been in the position a week—after much insistence on his part after seeing just how run ragged the queen had become. Guinevere hadn 't wanted one, especially after the experience with Sefa some months prior. But enough of his nagging and she finally agreed. "Thank you, Meliora," Guinevere said, placing down a paper she 'd been perusing, rising from the table that Arthur once sat at. "Can you leave us for a few minutes? It 's a nice day. Perhaps take a stroll around town? I shall be fine here for …show more content…
"Yes," she said. "Gaius was able to say goodbye in person. This...this is mine." The tears she 'd held back spilled down her cheeks and she quickly wiped them away. "I 'm sorry. I shouldn 't be reacting this way." "Of course you should," Leon said. "He was a dear friend and his absence is just as hard as..." He stopped, before mentioning Arthur. He stopped himself, a thought coming to his mind. "Perhaps, my lady, I could be the messenger?" Guinevere hesitated. "Are you certain that would be wise?" "If you are concerned about my duties here, Percival can take charge in the short time I am gone," he said. "As you know, things have been quiet as of late, the remaining Saxons having been pushed back to the northeastern border and—" "That 's not what I meant," she said. "I know he was a good friend of yours, and you 've been trying your best to hide how much his absence has affected you, too." He clamped his mouth shut, trying to put to words what he was feeling. Expressing such things had never come easy for him. " I never realized how often he 'd helped us on those many journeys around the realm—how many times he 'd saved us. The way he didn 't return, without so much as a goodbye to the rest of us..." He shook his head. "I 'd like to try and

On pages 147 and 148, the Lady Linnet comes to Camelot. Sir Gareth accepts the quest to save the Lady Lionel, who is being held hostage by the Red Knight. The Lady Linnet, however, did not want Sir Gareth to save her sister because he was a worker in the kitchen and she wanted a brave, well-known knight to
However, what some people don’t really realize is that though calling a certain time Camelot sounds pleasant and fairy tale like, it really wasn’t as wonderful in the time of Arthur as it seems. Though King Arthur was a strong ruler with a beautiful castle, a large kingdom, and a panel of loyal knights, not everything was as fantastic as we would like to think. Mrs. Kennedy meant the term Camelot as a positive, assuring phrase, but as the Arthurian age and Camelot had many issues, so did the Kennedy presidency. First of all, though Arthur’s knights were mostly loyal, two of his most trusted knights committed the highest acts of disloyalty. Sir Lancelot, though one of the most noble and famous knights there was fell in love with Arthur’s wife, Guinevere.
The cold sensation of murky ground slowly but surely switched from soil to smooth stone, the flatness of it being significantly easier on Jack 's feet as he moved away from the entrance and further into Pitch 's lair. Emptiness hung in the air, silent if not for the creaking of lead cages. With his eyes flicking between the cages, stairwells, and the bright glittering globe in the center, Jack comes to the conclusion that the place might feel emptier more because of the lack of teeth canisters than anything else. "You thought everything would be all right, now that the darkness has subsided. Centuries of loneliness, gone.
Rather, if authors wish to retell, adapt, or otherwise use the Arthurian legend in their own work, the undeveloped story of Lancelot meeting Guinevere or Gawain’s foiled quest to rescue Guinevere are available places to start. I cannot comment on the relationship of Lancelot to the rest of Arthurian legend, and the types of gaps which exist between these stories, but within Lancelot, any stories not told by Chretien are purposefully left out to serve the story. Lancelot, Knight of the Cart is complete as it stands—indeed, its untold stories occuring before, between, and after scenes are places where its audience can shape the story to be their own. Then perhaps, when the reader is invested in the story and enjoys it, they are inspired to read or create more stories similar to Lancelot, Knight of the
The best knights had gone to perfection, leaving the worst to hold their sieges” (White, 477). Although Arthur intended to improve his Round Table, he did not properly prepare for the risks associated with his quest, and the consequences of its completion. As a result of Arthur’s imprudence, the success of his quest is instead detrimental to the resulting state of his court.

“I’m sorry” she whispers. Brody’s sighs at her apology, as he stands uneasily at the door for a few seconds, looking between the jade and the night.

He knows that these visions will come at odd times, and cause him to become weak and unaware of his surroundings, as well as be unaware he is having the visions.
