Ever wanted a chance to make use of your vast knowledge of the Crackiverse? Well, here’s your opportunity. Answer the questions below in the comments and prove your bona fides as a crackhead.

Prizes? I did promise prizes didn’t I? Get 12 points and I’ll link you to a download of a majority of the songs on the Crackiversary Play List (about a third of them I only have as protected files, so those can’t be uploaded). Whoever gets the most questions right—what, bragging rights aren’t enough for you?—will get a walk on role in the fic. (Some of you suggested Lancelot as a prize, but, after legal consultation, unfortunately, I’m not insured for the liability issues that raises.)

This is open book, and everything ever written about teh crack is fair game (no looking at your neighbors' paper, though, comments are screened). Have your answers up by Thursday, January 29. Winners will be announced on Saturday, January 31.


Have fun!

1. So far, we don’t know if Tor likes
d. Hamburgers
Right!

2. Lancelot’s original roommate[s] in the barrack was/were:
Agravaine, Galehaut and Gareth
Right!

3. Dinaden has tried giving Tristan gifts to win him back. These include everything except:

c. A parrot (it was a parakEET)
Right! (Couldn't trip you up ;) )

4. Lancelot approves of which of the following (you can pick more than one if warranted):
f. None of the above
Right!

5. Lancelot’s first set of clothes in modern times were purchased by:
d. Dagonet
Right!

6. Bruenor’s first attempt at cooking was not a success. Who provided him with encouragement to continue?
d. Tristan (but that's a SECRET!)
Right! (And yes, it is!)


7. Lancelot’s first shopping trip was to:
c. Burberry
Yup! (The lucky guy--but he doesn't think of it that way)


8. Name Bors’ two favorite songs.
King Of Beers-Too Much Joy, C'est Moi-Camelot
Kay had to ponder on how to grade this one. C'est Moi, correct. The other song that we see Bors singing is the theme song from Sponge Bob Square Pants (much to Gareth's horror in Dangerous Games). I did designate King of Beers as Bors theme song in my playlist, but that's your writer's play list. Still, very close, so partial credit, .75 points

9. Not including Arthur, whose stuff does Lancelot have a tendency to borrow?
Lavaine.
Correct! I'd say poor Lavaine, but he doesn't seem to mind.


10. What happened to the desk Arthur had at Badon?

e. Arthur doesn’t know
Correct! Guinevere made it disappear one day while Arthur was away, and Arthur couldn't find out what she did with it.

11. What happened to Lancelot’s swords after he died?
Arthur originally left them in the cemetery, but took them back after a few days and hung them in his workroom until a warrior (Mordred? Has to be, but he's not CONFIRMED as Mordred yet :P) learning to fight with two swords came along and Arthur gave the swords to him.
Correct! (But I'm not denying or confirming anything about the ID of the young warrior ;) )

b. Tor
d. Galahad
a. Lancelot
c.Gareth


Not quite. This one's hard. The correct order from youngest to oldest: Galahad, Lancelot, Tor and Gareth. It's a little counter-intuitive, I realize, since Tor mostly acts like he's five years old. Gareth, who you got right, has been mentioned as being one of the oldest of the conscripts several times. Tor is actually the next oldest of this group, which you can find out in the kitchen scene in Myths, where Tor, encountering Kay and Lancelot, thinks: "Tor had always been intimidated by Lancelot. Even as a boy several years Tor's junior, he had been terrifying." The one that I think is actually the least obviously stated is that Galahad is younger than Lancelot. As far as I can remember, we mainly get that as an impression from how Lancelot talks to Galahad and from the idea, stated in a meme at least, that Galahad was among the youngest of the conscripts.


18. Agravaine died how many years after conscription?
Ten
Correct!

19. What person[s] where behind Kay’s missing boots and what were their movtives?
Galahad and Tristan. Kay said that Galahad's clothes were womanly and asked what was going on with Tristan and Dinaden which pissed Tristan off.
Correct!

20. Barlow is: Emo Gryffoyn's dog.
Correct!

21. It maybe be three years since Resurrection appeared on this journal, but in the crackiverse, how long has it been since Lancelot was resurrected?
Three months.
Almost right, and this is always going to be guestimation. In Twilight's Kingdom, we hear Arthur thinking (three days into Lancelot's coma) that three months have passed since Lancelot was resurrected. After that, although it's never specifically stated, it takes a few more days for Lancelot to wake up. The narrative doesn't make this crystal clear, but at least a day has passed no matter how you read it. Then there's the period that Rumors covers (at one point Bedivere tells Lancelot it's been out his coma for about 72 hours ("You woke in the morning day before yesterday. It's now just after midnight."), and then the narrative covers a few more days after that. Partial credit for being really close: .75 points.


Total: 20.5 out of 23. Excellent job smoking teh crack! Even Kay's impressed! :D Announcement about prizes to follow (there's also a super sekrit prize!)
