I hope that you have 'enjoyed' this self-indulgent set of rather depressing drabbles and will forgive me any major errors, plot holes or out-of-character lapses I have made.
I did steal the final lines from my epilogue from the marvellous Harry Potter! And yes, I borrowed my cremation scene from what I remember of early 1990s film "First Knight". Subsequent research has also indicated that a burial may have been more likely and in keeping with Dark Ages/Medieval beliefs. Whoops!
Here all credit belongs to the BBC and the Merlin team.
Any praise and/or criticism would be gratefully accepted.
