Year 486

The Spring Equinox has come, the spring air and the new year with it. Rain and fog take the place of snow and ice, the countryside fades from white, to grey, to green.

---

Far abroad, the wicked Clovis, King of the Franks, has conquered Soissons and with it the entirety of northern Gaul, the very last outpost of roman authority in the west. The fled magister militum, called Sygarius, has come to the court of Uther for aid, and promises half the Frankish treasury if he helps him to reclaim Paris. The King is understandably hesitant to launch an amphibian invasion when there are troubles enough on his own doorstep and one third of his dukes are in passive revolt.

---

Meanwhile, Sir Madoc offers an alternative use of the royal army, one which Uther finds much most sensible. Revenge.

In the intervening months after the defeat of Caercolun, the Angles have boldly brought over their families and households from the continent and their allies have done likewise from nearby Kent, no doubt intending to press west in the summer and carve yet more land into Saxon homesteads.

The Prince means to raise a large and highly mobile force of knights as early in the season as possible, with which to visit Murder, Pillage, and Sundry Evils upon the Saxon foe, while filling the coffers of the Cymric gentry with Anglish silver.

Earl Roderick is volunteering his own sword and those of his knights, including Lord Amig and Sir Jaradan.

The seven of you report to Sarum in late March to receive your orders, and in the pinnacle of anti-climax, each and every one of you has been slotted for Garrison duty, to remain behind while the army is away. In response to any understandable frustration, Sir Elad maintains that garrison duty has been assigned by pulling names from a cauldron since the days of his grandfather, and he isn't about to start making exceptions now.

---

Riding patrol is a relatively routine affair. You spend a few days resting, supplying, and standing watch in a given Castle, namely Du Plain this year, and venture forth for a week, screening the borders, making sweeps of roads and country paths, passing through villages to ensure a lack of eminent civil unrest, and give aid to commoners in distress when called on.

Knights on patrol typically camp under the stars, either out in the wilderness or in a fallow field by the road. Sat around a campfire tended by their squires under one particular clear and starry night not far from Camelot Wood, the group of friends no doubt have ample opportunity to catch up on their particular goings-on and become acquainted with the newcomers to the knightly order, Sir Yvana and Sir Miles.

Bleddyn stares at the two new folk.

He stared some more. He begin to wonder if one of them were actually a changeling and should he brew eggshells to find out? No, they're too old. Probably. Our that's what they wanted him to think.

Miles lives between him and El. Bleddyn scrunches up his face, he hasn't heard of any fae troubles in his neck of the woods. Well beyond the occasional unwed peasant maid becoming with child and claiming it was a fae suitor. Bleddyn was fairly certain that those cases were the result of one of his male cousins, but he had no proof.

Bleddyn stares at the fire, distracted by his thoughts and suspicions.

Terrwyn stretches her legs out on the ground and enjoys the relief. She advises the knights to "sit close to the fire. It's still kind of cold today." She looks at her old friends. "So how have you been doing guys?" =) She nudges a preoccupied Bleddyn in the side and grins at him, asking "how's that courtship coming along?" In response to any questions about her own life, Terrwyn simply says "all has been well. I can't be happier! Been very busy" :D Satisfied with her normal-looking interaction, Terrwyn then employs herself in seeing how those yummy bunnies are coming along ^^

Suppose you cut a bamboo
in two;
make the bottom piece a woman,
the headpiece a man;
rub them together
till they kindle:
----------------tell me now,
the fire that's born,
Is it male or female,
----------------O Ramanatha?

"W-well, T-terwyn, I-I'm g-glad y-you a-asked. I-it's g-going w-well. I-I p-plan t-to a-ask f-for h-her h-hand t-this W-winter.

Someone must have taken a sip of water wrong. He hates when that happens to him.

He realizes that he's managed to get almost everyone's attention while he was talking. They've heard everything.

Miles looks around at the small group. They seem an odd bunch.

Unsure of what to say, he decides to tell a joke.

"My hound has no nose!" He announces.

Eliver sits beside Sir Miles, his compact frame rather dwarfed by the big man. He notices Bleddyn staring silently at the two younger knights as though expecting them to leap up and attack him, until Terrwyn distracts him. Poor chap: away from his Llewella he seems quite back to his old self, but hopefully he'll get used to the newcomers eventually.

"My hound has no nose!" Miles exclaims suddenly.

El grins. This chap is cheerful company, at least. "Then how does it smell?" he answers.

"Dreadful!" Miles chortles, and thumps the smaller man on the back before helping himself to another rabbit.

Eliver laughs. He gives Miles what seems to be a rather odd look, but maybe it's just a trick of the firelight.

"Yeah, well, my dog has four legs and one arm."

"What manner of dog is that?" rumbles Miles, with his mouth full.

Arcadia fidgets and grimaces, partly from the terrible jokes, partly from her itch to cleave men and beasts apart again going unsatisfied. It is great just to be around Eliver, Bleddyn, and -- she represses the old twinge in her heart -- Terrwyn again, and the newcomers seem pleasant enough. She'd just hoped that after being immersed in her surprisingly tolerable marriage for so long and spending so much time training for the next engagement, the dramatic call to action would have provided... action.

Rolling her eyes at the dreadful punchlines, she bites into a rabbit and watches the fire, faint nostalgia tingling in her scar. Not in much of an outgoing mood at the moment, she waits for someone to speak to her.

Terrwyn stares at Bleddyn. She is not sure she is the only one who does. "Uh, well. Uh um." Terrwyn turns red and furiously tries to push away certain memories. "Well first you ask her if she is okay with it" she mutters under her breath, and coughs and smiles at Bleddyn. "Ah, that's easy. You just take the small thing you use to pee with and jam it repeatedly into a smaller hole between her legs *points at hers* until you feel some kind of relief, and then she can go to sleep." ^.^ "And you too, obviously!" she quickly adds. Annoyed with herself, Terrwyn turns away before he can ask further questions, and comes face to face with Arcadia. Frustrated now, Terrwyn stamps away, claiming first watch for the night.

"O-oh. Th-that's i-it? Gr-gross. I-I m-mean. Th-thank y-you," he says to a thoroughly flustered Terrwyn.

Miles looks around, bewildered but not displeased with the sudden turn the conversation has taken.

"And if anyone needs a practical lesson in that, I am happy to oblige as soon as we find a town with a decent whorehouse!"

He's waited outside whorehouses for his various cousins before, while they were inspecting the premises they said. The place had mice, they said. They always smelt funny and were very noisy.

"It's the guard dog," El says, straight-faced. "We're looking for a one-armed thief!" He bursts into fresh laughter.

Meanwhile, Terrwyn and Bleddyn's conversation has reached unprecedented heights of embarrassment, only for Miles to burst in with a ribald remark. Eliver forces a smile and looks away.
