Arthur, King of Time and Space


A reader seems to have emailed me about the conclusion of the Galehaute arc. I say "seems to have emailed" because I've checked all the other places where I get AKOTAS feedback and I don't find the message there. I don't find it in my inbox either, which means I must have accidentally deleted it. Oops. Sorry. But, since I was asked, I do want to address the issue brought up.

We saw the other day, in the space arc Galehaute is doomed to pine away and die in a few weeks from being on the outs with Lancelot. In the fairy tale/baseline arc Galehaute will soon pine away and die from Lancelot being missing; if you know the sources, you knew that. My accidentally ignored correspondent asked whether what's going to happen in the contemporary arc is any more pleasant, since it's his last chance for a happy ending, at least in the three major arcs.

I can't make up my mind.

On the one hand, I've set up the character as a co-worker of Morgan and as having moved to the Camelot metropolitan area purely on the strength of his attraction for Lancelot. It won't be giving anything away to longtime readers, after some of the flashforwards I've put up, to say that the contemporary arc has several examples of characters coming to less unpleasant ends than in the legends, and Galehaute could come to be one of them.

On the other hand it'd be awfully neat and tidy, after Galehaute's running gag all along being that he's too tall for his head to fit in the panels, for his last appearance to be the one when his face was revealed.
