And afterwards we went to The Rising Sun.

It was great!

Now i'm tired and I need to sleep, I think I drank a bit much.

Oh dear and I've got council meetings tomorrow.

WHooops.

And Monmouth found Mercy... - 24th June 1007

not_a_clotpole: (Wow...)
In amongst all his bathering, because he's declared the next two days free and clear of meetings! I suppose technically I should be able to decide these things, but the rest of the council seemed to be under the impression that endless discussion was needed and...I can hardly go against them all can I? They're my council, I should follow their council then, right?

But! Not for the next two days! I'm thinking tomorrow I'll take the knights on a big hunt, the weather is just right for it and it's just the sort of thing to boost morale.

As for the day after that? Well, who knows, I'm sure after the hunt we'll all end up at the tavern and Gwaine will challenge everyone to a drinking contest and no doubt we'll all end up under the table.

But isn't that what days off are all about?

I feel like a squire giving a reprieve!

Farewell to King Tewdrig - 25th May 1007

Now that the treaty negoiations are finished, I'm rather sorry to see him go, he's quite a brilliant hunter. It's nice to be challenged!

But he's needed back at Caerleon, so I'll be left with only Merlin for company on the hunt, if I can tear him away from his reading. Or maybe I should take Percival, for such a large man he's certainly quiet. Plus he'd probably be far more enthuisastic about it too.

I went to speak with Father once King Tewdrig left, same results as before, I doubt he heard a single word. I don't know what to do...he just...doesn't seem to be getting any better. As far as physical health goes, he barely eats, he was strong before all this happened, of course, but that won't last forever, he's all ready starting to get thinner and more and more drawn.

Gaius has said something about having to resort to force...but, well, I don't even want to think about doing that.It would just be...

This is depressing me.

I should ask Merlin to bring in dessert, I'm sure he'll think of some way to make terribly amusing. If not I'll just ask him about fairies again...

Fruits of a Successful Treaty - 24th May 1007

Yes, seeing as I was lucky enough (with help from Monmouth I suppose, though he's certainly never going to hear that from me) to reach an agreement with King Tewdrig and we survived the feast, today was dedicated to hunting!

And the weather was just perfect for it. I think I achieved a new personal best today!

However, my esteemed servant missed the whole thing.

To read a book on fairies...

I worry about him sometimes, I really do...

Still, it's rather amusing...Fairies, really?

Hunting - 5th June 1006

not_a_clotpole: (What? -Fingers)
Is always a welcome activity! Even though Merlin spent the whole day moaning. Honestly, he should be glad I didn't throw him in the stocks after his ridiculously poor effort at cleaning my room. Other people in this castle would have done far worse. I'm sure even Gaius would have made him clean a leech tank.

Anyway, take out Merlin's catwaulering and as I said, the day was amazing! I think we're in for a very warm summer.

On our return (with quite a haul of rabbits and a stag) however, I recieved a message from the council requesting me to look up some old records. Me! Sometimes I think these people have no idea who I am.

So yes, I went to see Monmouth and got the records and while I was going over them a gentleman clad in very strange clothes just wandered on in and commented about killing kings.

I really have no idea why anyone would say that, even idly! But seeing as it was a future!person. I suppose rules are different. Although he's not quite as far from the future as most of the people that place spits out.

It's extremely good luck that no-one ever happens to be around when this sort of thing happens, that's all I can say.

Merlin, Merlin, Merlin... - 3rd June 1006

Sometimes I just don't know what to do with him.

He can be absolutely useless to the point where it should be illegal.

Still, he tries his best and I suppose that's all you can ask for, it's certainly better than what the guards do.

I find myself missing Guinevere, actually this isn't new. I always miss her. She no longer serves our meals - not that that was something she did often, but it was always wonderful to see her.

I almost hope though...that the reason behind this is that Father actually feels guilty for sentencing her to death. It's a lot to hope for, probably too much. But I have known Father to be sorry for things.

Anyway...there's hunting tomorrow, the weather is warm enough now that there should be plenty of game.

We start early though, so I have to get to bed. I'd all ready be in it, if not for Merlin...honestly...

Hunting... - 25th April 1006

not_a_clotpole: (Writing is Hard...)
It's the sort of activity that clears the mind of worries and figure out the right way to proceed.

But to be honest? Today didn't do much of anything for me. I mean, I enjoyed myself, Leon seems to have got over his...odd behaviour...unless it was a look-a-like, but I would assume it's just that crazy old sorcerer stirring trouble. Fath - The King has decreed that we hunt the old man down, but I have a feeling we'll never find him.

If he's got any sense left, he won't come back to Camelot and if that's the case, good luck to him. Maybe he can go and annoy Cenred.

Anyway, the point is, I still don't know what to do, I haven't managed to speak to Guinevere today...I may have to put into plan Morgana and my's system. Which welll, I perfer not to since it's sure to be awkward, but if it's the only way...

Unless of course I come up with something in a dream...but I sincerely doubt it, aside from that dream about the Forbidden Lands I've never had a dream that makes even a tiny bit of sense.

And writing it out doesn't seem to do a thing either.

Thanks for nothing.

I've mentioned this before, but I'm quite sure it's finally happened...the snow is gone and it won't be coming back.

And not a moment too soon, as I wrote before, the loss of the snowknights is unfortunate, but I think it's time to train the actual guards, I hope they haven't backslid completely, we'll soon find out I suppose.

And more hunting! Last time's hunting proved to be very enjoyable despite the fact I didn't actually hunt anything down. But I did get Guinevere, and that's far better.

I'm still trying to live down the whole mess with falling asleep at the council meeting and snoring...Father has been going on about whenever we met, which unfortunately was a lot today.

Now, to follow Guinevere's advice and get a good night sleep...and have pleasant dreams I hope! Since last nigh's dreams involved me falling asleep and snoring - at tournaments, at meetings, even at my own coronation!

And it's a good thing Morgana will never see this, because I know she'd never let me forget it. Or let me forget it.
