 Mistress Sigune, I just wanted to pop in and congratulate you on your continuing efforts to keep the House of Lot in the public eye - not to mention extend my best wishes for your Happiness and Good Health!:) (Smile) 


I must admit that I have been distracted by THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE quite recently, but was reminded of my more ancient Arthurian loyalties when I recalled one of my favourite bits of hagiography - that the namesake Saint of my Alma Mater was the grandson of King Lot in the female line and therefore a nephew of the most un-monkish Gawain (which always seems to me to be only a little less ironic than the fact that at least one St Francis bears the surname 'Borgia' for reasons made obvious in your own excellent comic).:D (Big Grin)

Gawain is the best knight. Although I hate what Mallory did with him, completely destroyed his character to promote Lancelot.  :(

I couldn't agree more! Mind you, Malory based his story on French sources, hence the Lancelot promotion. It is really funny: if you read medieval romances, you see so many authors promoting their own Gary Stus. Lancelot was just a particularly succesful Stu... But we know who the real hero is! ;)

 Correction to an earlier reply; I read your 'Gawain Project' through Blogspot!
