Summary:

Say what you like about him putting off hosting the Crown Prince’s Introduction Ball for Camelot’s Young Noblemen for–well, forever, really–but if there was a princely responsibility Arthur really loved, it was being Royal Arbiter for Suitable Suitors’ Disputes.

It was not a role in the capacity of which he often found himself intervening, but the pleasure of his rare acts in office far outweighed the inconvenience of wearing the Arbiter’s robes and hat–robes and hat which were, he would admit, not even half as dignified as the livery of the royal servants of Camelot. And for someone who had spent a childhood dodging green and red feathers in an effort to retain the use of both his eyes, that really was quite an admission.
