There is something so ancient about a king and a citadel and doomed love, isn’t there? Something inherently human about quests and secrets and loss. I think that’s my favorite part about Arthurian myths. No matter the mechanics, we know as the reader that Camelot is doomed. Merlin/Myrddin knew from the beginning there was always someone waiting in the darkness to take Arthur’s kingdom from him, and though there’s a thousand ways the pair attempt to remediate the situation—from simply ignoring it to drowning infants—they never succeed. Camelot is always doomed.
I think maybe I love doomed things. Things that are as destined to flower as they are to wither. Things bright as a meteor that by nature must crash into the earth and be reduced to rubble and ash. It’s strangely magical, isn’t it? What a relief that things must end. Nothing gold can stay, after all.
