Arthur On Christmas Day

The boy Arthur walked through the forest.

He was walking back home to retrieve his brother Kay’s sword.

His brother had forgotten it the day of a big tournament.

As he walked, the lovely dark-haired wood nymph Morgana walked out from behind a tree.

She stood there in a lovely silvery white dress.

“Arthur,” she called out to him.

“Morgana,” Arthur smiled.

They walked back to her cabin where they spent the afternoon making love.

When they finished, Arthur walked back to the tournament.

A couple of miles from the tournament site, it suddenly hit Arthur that he had been so busy using his own sword that afternoon, he had completely forgotten about his brother Kay’s.

It was then that he noticed an ancient church and churchyard.

In the churchyard was a large stone with a sword sticking out of it.

Arthur walked over to the stone and pulled out the sword.

“This seems to be a fairly good sword,” Arthur smiled, “even better than Kay’s. My brother should be pleased.”

Arthur turned in the direction of the tournament.

He failed to notice the inscription written on the stone, “Whosoever pulleth this sword out of this stone is destined to become the great High King of the Britons.”

A new destiny had arrived for Britain on that Christmas Day.

A destiny in more ways than one.

    Damn lucky his own sword was limp and useless….gives me hope.

      Well actually it was his brother Kay’s sword that was limp and useless (foster brother Kay actually as at this point in time the young Arthur didn’t know that he was adopted).

      Arthur’s sword was strong enough to satisfy the nymphomaniac Morgana.

      And hopefully the laws of the universe are such that when your own sword gives someone like Akira the proper thrust, your head doesn’t decide to explode at that moment and your last words will be, “Damned nanites. They picked the wrong time to undergo Infinite exponential growth.”

      • George F. said,

        LOOOOOL!! My sword can still satisfy a nymphomaniac…I am looking for one to satisfy…NOW!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I’ll have to pass word along to Renfield R. Renfield that you’re looking for a nymphomaniac.

        It was the Tewkesbury Sex Addicts and Nymphomaniacs Association that claims it was responsible for getting Renfield elected to Parliament as MP for the Tewkesbury In The Cotswolds Constituency. πŸ˜€

    Are you supposed to make love before a tournament? Isn’t it a bit like football where you have to abstain in order to get your strength up before a big match? Just wondering …:)

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      It wasn’t Arthur that was participating in the tournament.

      It was his older brother Kay.

      Kay had forgotten his sword at home and not wanting to exert himself by walking back home himself, he had sent his younger brother Arthur to fetch it.

      And instead of getting the sword, Arthur made out out with Morgana instead.

      Of course that’s my own spin on this Arthurian myth.

      For some reason or another, Arthur was not able to get Kay’s sword and so ended up pulling the sword out of the stone instead to give it to Kay for the tournament.

      • mariewilliams53 said,

        Well, Dracul, that makes it even worse. While out on an important, nay death defying mission – Arthur stops off to make love – I’m sure that wasn’t in the Round Table ‘rules’. Or is that what they meant by: ‘brothers until we die’ (or something like that). I think you need to re-write the story in the true spirit of brotherhood. πŸ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        As the musical Camelot (which was one of John F. Kennedy’s favourite musicals) put it, “For one brief shining moment, there was Camelot.”

        Perfect societies, perfect places, perfect kingdoms – they do not seem to stay perfect forever.

        The promise Kennedy himself evoked ended with gunshots in Dallas.

        In our current world, nothing good lasts forever.

        In my version of the story, the promise that was Arthur – the promise that was Camelot- carried the seeds of its own destruction.

        Because in many versions of the Arthur story, Morgana turns out to be Arthur’s half-sister (although neither Arthur nor Morgana know this at the time they make love).

        And the child born from their incest- Arthur’s arch enemy Mordred is the one who later leads a rebellion against Arthur and topples Camelot.

        In my story I have Arthur making love with Morgana on the same day that he pulls the sword out of the stone (thus paving the way to his becoming king of the Britons) to make the point that often the potential for both good and evil can ironically be sewn at the same time- and it is only in the future- looking back at the past- that one can see that- the potential for future good and future evil- being sown at the same time.

      • mariewilliams53 said,

        OK – I guess I have to accept the way you want to tell your story.:) And yes to some extent I agree that the potential for good and evil can be sewn at the same time.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It definitely makes history interesting and dramatic. πŸ™‚

      • mariewilliams53 said,

        Yes, I think it would be great if we could all re-write history – erring on the side of good will of course!:)

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        πŸ‘

      • mariewilliams53 said,

        Incidentally, do you make love before writing a post such as this …? lol

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,
