Duck People, I have a question.

Something very odd is happening to my book, I mean more odd than usual, which I wouldn't have thought possible.

These...blue spider things have started popping up all over it.

Is this your doing? What's it supposed to mean? It's my birthday today is this the future's idea of a gift? If so...thank you....I suppose.

And I though Merlin's interest in sticks was strange.

I don't think anyone knows where they're from or what they are. You're not the only one who's gotten them, though.

I'm not?

They won't come alive will they? Because I don't need blue spiders crawling around the castle.

No, I got three myself a few weeks back and everything's been fine since then. They're just pictures.

Well, good.

Is sending pictures of spiders to people normal in the future?

Introductions are in order I suppose? I'm Arthur, Crown Prince of Camelot.

They were Halloween spiders. It's a whole future-holiday thing.

Halloween? What's that all about? We celebrated Samhain, do you still have that?

Is that some kind of special day where you celebrate people named Sam or what?

[It's unfortunate that this is text, because Buffy is missing a truly unforgettable expression on Arthur's face. Still...some of that expression is reflected in his response.]

No, Samhain is a day when we remember those no longer with us and pray for a good autumn harvest.

Huh. Pretty sure we don't have that anymore.

It's your birthday? Happy Birthday, then!

Yes it is.

Thank you. It's been quite a day all ready, and the feast is tonight.

I was just making certain that these spider things weren't going to come to life and cause trouble.

I don't think they will. They're just drawings.

So I see, but I have no idea what to expect from this place, after all, just a few weeks ago there were two other mes running around thanks to here!

Other mes! A young one and an old one. One of them kept escaping the room, the other one was just annoying.

I was relieved to see the back of them.

He insisted things occurred that are just impossible! And he seemed to be under the impression I was some sort of joke. You should be glad nothing like that happened to you.

Well I am a bit new to the community, after all.

Are you? Well, I warn you to be vigilant!

Oh...I'm Arthur, Crown Prince of Camelot.

It's a pleasure to meet you, Prince Arthur. [she pauses] ...You mean like King Arthur?

Well...not yet, for a while...well, my father is getting better now, it will be some time before I have to take up the crown.

Oh! ...Are you friends with Merlin? Are there knights?

[Arthur takes a few moments to respond, if only because he's rather amused by the question and more than a little confused. Finally he writes.]

Of course we have knights! What would the kingdom be without them?

As for Merlin, well I wouldn't say he wasn't my friend...

What are the knights like?
