Why is it that there are twelve gazillion pages on Arthurian stuff I don't care about (Y HALO THAR LANCELOT'S LOVE LIFE), and yet I can find not a one mention on the entirety of the internets about how weird it is that Brunor le Noir 'La Cote Mal Taillée' dislikes Lancelot for killing his brother Daniel, but his other brother, Dinadan, is buddy-buddy with Mr. du Lac? I mean, we know that Dinadan gets along with practically everybody, but still. Is he the worst family member in the world or what?
I've wondered about the weirdness of Dinadan and Brunor le Noir being brothers for years, and it makes me sad that I am apparently the only person ever to think about it. It's just, here is Brunor, DRIPPING WITH ANGST, with a dead brother and a murdered father, and here is Dinadan, off skylarking with Tristan and Palomides. Can you imagine family dinners?
Dinadan: So, uh, how was your day?
Brunor: Good, EXCEPT FOR THE PART WHERE OUR LITTLE BROTHER IS STILL DEAD BECAUSE YOUR FRIEND KILLED HIM.
Dinadan: So, no change from yesterday. Um. The weather is very nice today!
Brunor: It is. I WISH OUR MURDERED FATHER WAS HERE TO ENJOY IT.
Dinadan: Pass the peas.
It's just so random. Most of the time they never shut up about Blood Ties, why is it that the one time I'm actually interested, there's jackshit?
