Explicit Liber Secundus. King Arther wakes up to see Morgause and her sons Gawaine, Gaheris, Agravaine, and Gareth. From The Once and Future King, by T.H.White. I really, really liked this book.
"He woke with a start, to find a black-haired, blue-eyed beauty in front of him, who was wearing a crown. The four wild children from the north were standing behind their mother, shy and defiant, and she was folding up a tape."
Books are the most fun to do fanart for.
4 x 6 inches.
7. agravaine. Then Sir Launcelot took his leave, and so they departed, and came unto Winchester. And when Arthur wist that Sir Launcelot was come whole and sound the king made great joy of him, and so did Sir Gawaine and all the knights of the Round Table except Sir Agravaine and Sir Mordred.
8. gaheris. But when it was known that Gaheris had slain his mother the king was passing wroth, and commanded him to go out of his court. Wit ye well Sir Gawaine was wroth that Gaheris had slain his mother and let Sir Lamorak escape. And for this matter was the king passing wroth, and so was Sir Launcelot, and many other knights.

Gawain is telling his brothers the story of Saint Brendan, who celebrated Mass on what he thought was a small island… :-)

modern arthurian au: the rewrite : the orkney clan - lot arcaibh and his five sons
Modern reincarnated!Arthur writes children books about Arthuriana giving a happy ending—and is found through his books by his son Mordred, who has meanwhile been adopted by Lot along with a whole family of other abandoned boys needing a good home and a proper chance at life, raised as his own alongside his biological son Gawain.
"I don’t care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. What everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching—they are your family." — Jim Butcher, Proven Guilty
MYTHOLOGY MEME: One of Four
The four sons of Morgause and King Lot, nephews or cousins of King Arthur, were joined by their half-brother Mordred, Morgause’s son by Arthur himself. The five were knights of the Round Table, and all played a part in Arthur’s reign and downfall.
The eldest, Gawain, was heir to the throne of Britain. Known as “the Maiden’s Knight,” he was a great defender of distressed damsels, and rode often with Damsels Errant as his guides. His ultimate loyalty was to his family, though when his brothers split over the war with Arthur, Gawain chose the king’s side and died fighting Mordred’s forces.
Agravain, the second brother, was at first neutral on the split between Mordred and Arthur; eventually, he became an accomplice to his half-brother and spied on Queen Guinevere and her lover Lancelot. Their discovery was the catalyst of the war.
Gaheris, the third brother, was originally the peacemaker of the family, a kind and quiet squire to Gawain. After he was knighted, he killed King Pellinore to avenge the death of Lot, and participated in the death of Lamorak, his mother’s lover. Upon discovering her adultery, Gaheris also slew his own mother by beheading, and was banished from Orkney for it.
Gareth, the youngest of Lot’s sons, came to Arthur’s court disguised as a kitchen-boy, and didn’t reveal his true nature until he set out to rescue Lyonesse, a maiden who would later become his wife. In the war with Mordred, Gareth and his brother Gaheris were accidentally killed by Lancelot, spurring Gawain to choose Arthur’s side over Mordred’s.
The youngest of the Orkney brothers, Mordred, was ambitious and sly, and desired the throne of Britain for himself. He engineered the war as a way to dispose of Arthur, and when the king had fled, Mordred usurped the throne and married Guinevere. Arthur slew him at the Battle of Camlann, but only after Mordred had dealt the king a mortal blow.
Morgause watched her sons ride south to her half-brother’s court. One by one they left: the rebellious, the ambitious, the loyal, the headstrong, and the innocent. They joked and smiled as they parted from her, giving her a hug or a quick kiss on the cheek and promising that they would be back one day as knights.
Morgause did not weep when they left. Tears were a weakness that a queen could ill afford.
Morgause did not wish them luck. She knew that there was no such thing in this world.
Morgause did not say goodbye. It was not in her nature.
But Morgause went to her scrying bowl as soon as they were out of sight, and she reached deep within her for what little power she had left. She saw her sons’ fates play out in the water—she saw them rise to glory and pass into legend. And she saw every single one of them die at the edge of a sword.
Morgause watched her sons ride south. And they never came back—for what Camelot took, Camelot kept.
Shh… I’m having a lot of Orkney bros feels right now…

This is perfection.
It makes me BURN and DESIRE an arthurian anime DDD:
Imagine having Gawain as your eldest brother and you hardly ever saw him because he was away at court but then he’d show up out of the blue with all these great stories and ask you how your training was going and giving you tips and play-sparring with you and letting you win and he’d act as if you were the greatest knight he’d ever fought and would yield to you and say how he was forever in your service and even though it was a game you’d know it was true and you’d look at all his armour and the way he rode and all you ever wanted was to ride with him back to court and be knighted yourself and prove to him that you really could be as great a knight as he knew you would be because all you ever wanted was to be as great as him and to fight alongside him as his equal.
Anyway maybe one day I’ll finish this but for now I’ll just melt in my Orkney feels.
THIS IS WONDERFUL <3
