To the Victor

Beast Fables - Comic 52 - Chauntilak awaits his gift but instead gets a day off.

He’s lucky all he’s getting is a day off.

Medieval Moment: As a reminder, in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Bertilak hunts every day while Gawain lazes about in bed. The deal they’ve agreed to is that Bertilak will give Gawain anything he has earned while hunting, and Gawain must give Bertilak anything he has gained while staying at his castle. Bertilak gets a lot of kisses as a result, which Gawain “earns” from Lady Bertilak. The implication being…well, I’m sure you can piece it together. Gawain and Bertilak fanfic, anyone?
