Who is this? And what is here?
And in the lighted palace near
Died the sound of royal cheer;
And they crossed themselves for fear,
All the Knights at Camelot;
But Lancelot mused a little space
He said, "She has a lovely face;
God in his mercy lend her grace,
The Lady of Shalott."
(Lady of Shalott quote)
The Black Queen of Arkadia - a story I am working on with my husband... She is the Queen of creatures, woven out of myth and cobwebs, and had been asleep for centuries too long, thanks to the greed of her absolute twin, The White Queen.
Something awakened her...
She calls the Hunt on a strange boy who wishes to join their Court, and is... stunned, by his abilities to turn away her powers of creation, so she ends up using the Hunt to distract her sister and steal him away all for herself.
Not a scene out of the story, but more of HER portrait, her sadness, and uncaring for that which is around her. Nor do you (the viewer) din to see the whole of her face, for what are you but a mere mortal?
