2 Of which there are none -- the perfect job!
True, I many not be entirely valorous or chivalrous, but I think I'll be good enough to carry out the job.
However, I do think I need a more Knightly name than "Sir StratPlayer". Something more regal and fierce-sounding...
So I shall adopt "Vincent" (from the Latin "vincere", to conquer), and thusly henceforth be known as:
"Knight Temporal Sir Vincent, Lord Of Nominal Goodness, Defender Of NewPix Glory*"
*aka Sir Vinnie LONGDONG
You may be able to declare yourself a knight, but you need a bishop or Cardinal to give you your new, knightly name. It's like a NASA nickname. you con't get to choose it for yourself.(and this is within 6 timeframes of when you declared it.)
I, Timewaiter Arch-Cardinal Buffygirl, She who Rises From The Flames Like A Phoenix To Continue With Her Pursuit of Hat Perfection, do hereby name you Sir Vinnie LONGDONG, Knight Temporal, Lord of Nominal Goodness, Defender of... Oh wait! You're not a TimeWaiter! Pffft.
Thank you, your Holiness, I -- Wait! What?!?! I most certainly AM a Timewaiter! You yourself even rescued me from my heretical Menopause and returned me to the One True Faith!! MY use of "NewPix" was purely for acronymic justification and as an attempt to reach out to those who might be weak in their faith.
I shall attribute this momentary lapse in your otherwise perfect Cardinal judgement to a temporary state of the evil forces of the Outside weighing too heavily upon you, and shall accept your Knighthood as what you clearly meant to do.
So, *ahem* Thank you again, your Holiness. I remain in the service to you, the One True Faith, and the Holy Timeframes, shall continue to Wait for it.
