And the Hed answer was right.

Indeed. She is my faithful companion, and a true friend.

I'll post an easy one.
Actually, no, I won't.

True, sorry. I'm used to the rule of if the person who answers doesn't give a new quote, the floor's open to whoever has one. Keeps things moving.

Fooled you! Drizzt's cat is Guenhwyvar, not Gwenhwyvar! (;

But...yes, she's Arthur's wife, and Lawhead is one of the authors who calls her by that name. So, give us a new one, glory!

Look, with the amount of crappy spelling on this board, you have to allow leeway for people interpreting almost-identical names as being the same.

Just to make it clear, is that poem fantasy or fantasy related or in a fantasy book or something?

And how is Hir-Ilt, Hir-Li?
And is Mu'adib actually Glory? how come he knows the answer? or does he?

Could be, Muad'Dib is a man who can be many places at once.
