OK, I can see that. I was using it as an example of how one could
desire a title (or recognition) and still be considered to exhibit all
the ideal qualities of a per. But I think I understand your

Oooo. I don't know about that. I don't think I want a King who does
not have the qualities of a knight. The King should represent the
epitome of knighthood, if you ask me

Any knights out there who care to comment on this? Sir Kief?
You still lurking? How do the knights view the kingship? I would
say that having the attributes of a peer is an integral part of being
a good King/Queen.

Well, even while I was writing my last message, it occurred to me
that I was arguing Reality vs The Dream, and I wish more people would
take the part of The Dream. I sincerely hope your ideals will hold out
for a long time.

May they (awards) be lavished upon you in abundance, unlooked for,
undesired, but greatly appreciated. :-)
I hope this thread hasn't made me sound like a cookie monger myself
even though I've argued the part to an extent. Like I said, I freely
admit to having aspired to be a knight, and it was very disappointing
when I realized I would never make it. I think I can say I always
fought with honor and humility, and I shall have to be content with that.
But there will always be a part of mewho wanted to be "Sir" Gunhilda,
even if it was just in my dreams. It makes me very uneasy to
consider whether or not that desire/want was a worthy thing.

Oh well, there's always the delete button. Maybe it will have
started others thinking as well.
