- If ONLY they could have seen behind the scenes EARLIER today, when the Avalon Channel was attempting to introduce a bright new CO-ANCHOR...
|"Danae? Sorry to interrupt. We
have new images from Blueberry Woods."
"I have dark hair, Danae."|
"So you do." Pause. "The armored ladies crossed swords in what must be another skirmish for the Crown...
"...As you can see, these lady knights are using the new close-fitting helmet design favored by noted champions." Danae turns to Alicia before continuing. "...Unlike that old, boxy relic you claim you'll use some day."
Alicia blurts, "But what about Ryder? That must hurt something awful!"
Danae gives her co-anchor THE look.
"Ah-hah! A new player: Streaky of Saltonstall. Barely sixteen -- and who surely wouldn't be allowed on her own were it not these desperate times of an empty throne..."
"She's challenging Gwen! Good Lord, doesn't she know Gwen is the odds-on favorite in the Crown Sweeps?"
Alicia steps forward. "She's using an old, boxy helmet. Just like mine."
"So she is. In other news, the Lake District drought is said to be worsening--"
"--Except for the area around Lower Windermere--"
[Long pause indistinct whispers.]
"And that concludes our broadcast day Good evening."
