    Summary

    Had he known how wrong everything would go, he would have made so many different choices.

    Had he known that, even after death, he would find himself trying to influence his King, his Uncle who he'd once belov'd so much he would have given his life for him, he may have taken a Vow, made some sort of binding promise to some higher power in exchange for understanding what consequence truly meant.

    Had he known when he first met Uncle-King Arthur how horribly twisted a legacy could become while still retaining its core, he may have burned Camelot down to the ground before he took up a Knight's oath, if only to save them both the fates they were about to suffer.

    Summary

    The first thing that happens is that Gawain cuts someone's head off. You know who it is, and you know why.

    What you don't know is that his blood was red, red like berries, and it spurted from his neck and splattered onto the ground and the dried apples laid in their platters and the dead pig on hers and the white linen of Gawain's tunic. That's why this is a Christmas story: because the knight's blood was red, but his eyes were green, and his clothes were green, and his skin was green, too, and because he had tracked snow into the hall, and because even after he put his head back on and got on his horse and left - even after they couldn't hear his hoofbeats, out on the stone path the Romans had built - the snow stayed, and stayed.

    Summary

    It wasn’t that he didn’t notice that there was something odd from the start... It was just that it was Christmas night, everyone was half-drunk and bored daft and Sir Henry Percy was a knight of the Garter, Warden of the east marches, Royal Lieutenant in Wales, not a peasant to be affrighted by bogles, wodwos and salvage men nor a florid Celt to speak credulously of trepidations, portents and freaks.

    (The dreams were another thing, another thing entirely, only a fool could fail to see the difference.)

    Of course it was a pleasantry. There was nothing else on earth it could have been.

    Summary

    A tug at [Gawain's] sleeve returned him to earth again, tumbling him out of his thoughts.

    "Like you this chapel?" asked the lord, too loudly, slapping the pew with a smile.

    "Yes," said Gawain, glancing once more at the altar. "Truly, I stand in amazement."

    "Come, then, you and your amazement both," replied the lord, "and sit."
