Spoiler Space for those who have not seen A Late Delivery From Avalon yet.



I hope that that's enough.

I was wondering if Marcus's discussion at the end of the episode comparing
the B5 regulars to the characters in the King Arthur legends was in any way
intended as a poke at those fans on-line who compare B5 to other stories (such
as "B5 is just Lord of the Rings with..."). I think it works nicely as an
ominous hint about the future, but I know I was mostly laughing thinking of how
many times I've seen the same type of discussion on the nets.

The references given (he said vaguely, to avoid spoiling anybody) were
first and foremost intentional to the story and to set up stuff...but as I
wrote it, the way this stuff has been discussed online did come to mind,
and on some level it was probably a slight *plink*, yes.

Sort of a "yeah, well, TWO can play at that game, and most of you missed
THIS particular analogy, so THERE."

I am in serious need of a vacation, I think....
