And we're off!

     When I left the Islands I had a vague image of myself fleeing from you with the speed and surety of a hart, straight to my father's estate at Camlan. The morning I left I was certain, Godmother, certain beyond anything you could have suggested to make me doubt it, that I could return to Camlan as though returning home...

The first fisherman I spoke to was leaving that day for the mainland... the wind was perfect; we sped past the barren cliffs of Hoy, and the day was clear enough that we could see Cape Wrath looming in the distance. 

So off he goes to Camlan.


When he gets there it's all snowy and miserable.


When my father's queen hurriedly received me I told her I would stay in the Great Hall where most of the household slept. Ginevra agreed, apologetically; they had been using my room for storage, and it would have to be cleared out before I could use it. "You'll be more comfortable in the Hall," she added. "It's warmer there. Artos is the only one who knows how the hypocaust works; we can't mend it till he returns. And"--she paused; and I could see her setting her jaw so that she would not falter--"and I think Lleu is dying. He has been ill all winter, and today he is scarcely able to breathe. Otherwise we should have given you more of a welcome, Medraut."

Director's Notes: The BEST, BEST thing about this scene is the hole in the atrium floor, which is THERE IN THE BOOK because part of the hypocaust has collapsed.  In the picture it is blocked off with a "rock" and half a "wooden" plank.

Like the window seat?  that's in the book, too.  The villa is one of the few props we're using that's not actually Playmobil.  It's Fisher Price... but it *is*, I kid you not, "Sir Mordred's Castle."

stay tuned. I promise I am working on the novel too.

I was going to do it all with Playmobil we already had, but I couldn't resist buying him a new quiver yesterday, since the one we have has lost its sword hook and is about to fall apart where it attaches to the strap. And the red bob will look good on Gareth. (planning ahead, you know... I also have my eye on these
