EXILED FROM CAMELOT (Cherith Baldry)

 Arthur had called him into his private room. He held the ring, turning it in a shaft of sunlight so that the stone flashed fire. “Look, Kay,” he said. “He’s exactly like you: small and fierce and damnably arrogant. My falcon.” He had slipped the ring on Kay’s hand, and embranced him, and Kay had tought that no one in the whole world could ever have known such happiness.”

This novel is my guilty pleasure. It is well written and it’s clear that the author knows a lot about arthuriana and loves Sir Kay, so it’s a lovely guilty pleasure. What to expect from “Exiled from Camelot”? A bit of Kay whumpage, hurt/comfort, manly knights hugging each others, homoerotic subtext and one of the less used stories in arthuriana: the murder of Loholt.
Kay (Andrew Hawley); Arthur (Henry Cavill),  Lady Alienor (Keisha Castle-Hughes); Gawain (Brandon Jay McLaren); Gareth (Adetomiwa Edun); Lancelot (Daniel Sunjata).

I was playing around with the fairytale scene maker and decided to make a Lady Lynette and Beaumains scene!
I like to think that they just finished up with yet another moment where Gareth picked on someone twice his size and Lynette’s asking him if she looks like she’s impressed by his “”heroic acts of valor”” but as always Beaumains is basically the human version of the ‘ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯’ emoji
also Lynette is wearing pants and a dagger because they’re seriously trying to say the girl rode three days to and from Lyonesseto Camelot in a dress and without any way to protect herself? Lynette? nah.

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.

9. gareth. Sir, I blame you not, said Gareth, for well I understand the vengeance of my brethren Sir Gawaine, Agravaine, Gaheris, and Mordred. But as for me, said Sir Gareth, I meddle not of their matters, therefore there is none of them that loveth me. And for I understand they be murderers of good knights I left their company; and God would I had been by, said Gareth, when the noble knight, Sir Lamorak, was slain.

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.

Of the Tragic Love of the Good Knight Sir Gareth for the Noble Sir Launcelot
From Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur
“Hope ye so that I may any while stand a proved knight? said Beaumains. Yea, said Launcelot, do as ye have done, and I shall be your warrant. Then, I pray you, said Beaumains, give me the order of knighthood. Then must ye tell me your name, said Launcelot, and of what kin ye be born. Sir, so that ye will not discover me I shall, said Beaumains. Nay, said Sir Launcelot, and that I promise you by the faith of my body, until it be openly known. Then, sir, he said, my name is Gareth, and brother unto Sir Gawaine of father and mother….And then Sir Launcelot gave him the order of knighthood.” - Book VII Chapter V
“And then came in Sir Gareth, and knew that it was Sir Launcelot that fought with the two perilous knights. And then Sir Gareth came with his good horse and hurtled them in-sunder, and no stroke would he smite  to sir Launcelot. That espied Sir Launcelot, and deemed it should be the good knight Sir Gareth.” - Book VII Chapter XXIX
“For there was never no knight that Sir Gareth loved so well as he did Sir Launcelot; and ever for the most part he would be in Sir Launcelot’s company; for After Sir Gareth had espied Sir Gawaine’s conditions, he withdrew himself from his brother, Sir Gawaine’s, fellowship, for he was vengeable, and where he hated he would be avenged with murder, and that hated Sir Gareth.” - Book VII Chapter XXIV
“By my head, said Sir Gareth, I will ride unto my lord Sir Launcelot, for to help him, fall of him what fall may, for he is the same man that made me knight.” - Book XVIII Chapter XXIII
“Also Sir Launcelot knew not Sir Gareth for an Sir Tristram de Liones, outher Sir Lamorak de Galis had been alive, Sir Launcelot would have deemed he had been one of them twain.” - Book XVIII Chapter XXIII
“My lord, said Sir Gareth, he made me a knight, and when I saw him so hard bestead, methought it was my worship to help him, for I saw him do so much, and so many noble knights against him; and when I understood that he was Sir Launcelot du Lake, I shamed to see so many knights against him alone.” - Book XVIII Chapter XXIV
“No more will I, said Sir Gareth and Sir Gaheris, for we will never say evil by that man; for because, said Sir Gareth, Sir Launcelot made me knight, by no manner owe I to say ill of him.” - Book XX Chapter I
“And so in this rushing and hurling, as Sir Launcelot thrang here and there, it mishapped him to slay Gaheris and Sir Gareth, the noble knight, for they were unarmed and unware. For as the French book saith, Sir Launcelot smote sir Gareth and Sir Gaheris upon the brain-pans, wherethrough they were slain in the field; howbeit in very truth sir Launcelot saw them not, and so were they found dead among the thickest of the press.” - Book XX Chapter VIII
“Mercy Jesu, said the king, why slew he Sir Gareth and Sir Gaheris, for I dare say as for Sir Gareth he loved Sir Launcelot above all men earthly.” - Book XX Chapter IX
“Sir, said the man, Launcelot slew them both. That may I not believe, said Sir Gawaine, that ever he slew my brother, Sir Gareth; for I dare say my brother Gareth loved him better than me, and all his brethren, and the king both. Also I dare say, an Sir Launcelot had desired my brother Sir Gareth, with him he would have been with him against the king and us all, and therefore I may never believe that Sir Launcelot slew my brother.” - Book XX Chapter IX
“And wit ye well Sir Gawaine, as for Sir Gareth, I love none of my kinsmen so much as I did him; and ever while I live, said Sir Launcelot, I will bewail Sir Gareth’s death, not all only for the great fear I have of you, but many causes cause me to be sorrowful. One is, for I made him knight; another is, I wot well he loved me above all other knights.” - Book XX Chapter XVI
