LOL like the analogy of the stone acting like a hangover cure, when Merlin was feeling weak and in pain. Loved "her pale eyes haughtily scanned him like a farmer would a prize heifer" - perfect description of Morgana's disdainful and judging gaze. Arrghh but I wanted to slap Percival for his stupid taunt - well meant as it was - silly man.
"Words, more ancient and dark than Merlin could comprehend, spilled like vomit from her mouth, and her eyes were dark gold, blazing with demonic power." oooh *shivers* - lovely imagery of Morgana as the evil priestess hell-bent on causing pain. Also like the fact that she attacked with snakes - far more inventive than merely throwing her opponents about the place as she did in the show.
Yay, Merlin's all bamfy now...woot woot! And smirking too - about time Morgana got as good as she gives! LOL at the boomerang balls up (they are so hard to throw properly though, so can't exactly blame Merlin, when he's never even seen one in reality. But OMG, Morgana has completely lost it BIG TIME! With the hydra and the snakes and the "Sur-pri-i-se"...the lift really doesn't go to the top floor anymore, does it?
Ooh I liked Merlin's weapon gathering and throwing spell. And I loved the way you described how Merlin instinctively gathered his energy into his palm to fight back. Also loved Merlin's thought processes as he was fighting - very funny and very...Merlin! Nice hints of whump too - with Merlin slowly losing his energy and getting hurt here and there.
Wow - that memory of Merlin's whumpy youth, being taunted for his lack of a father, came out of nowhere and was brilliant! And very appropriate for that moment (as Merlin helplessly watched the knights and Arthur being forced to bow to Morgana).
Gah! So typical of Merlin to feel shame for not being able to stop Morgana's demoralising of his friends after all he's done and been through...silly, self-sacrificing man. And silly Kay for being so affected by his hurt pride as to lose all his common sense and try to attack Morgana *rolls eyes*.
Haha, Merlin cut off Morgana's hair - okay, by accident, but that was a brilliantly unexpected twist (best way to hurt a woman is by damaging her appearance!).
Phew, my heart was beating so fast when Morgana was trying to bend Merlin's magic to her will...and all the glorious pain he suffered (sorry, but that's the way my mind works...I'm evil, I know). Fabulous build up of tension and angst here (well, the whole battle, really)...and oh no! She's got Kay under her control again. So ruthless.
"In the chaos of the infirmary, servants ran in and out, the healers ran to and fro, and the injured were carried in…the dead, out." Such a beautifully crafted line - paints a really vivid picture of what Gwen saw. Loved the little backstory of how Merlin had behaved when he had been given the task of sorting out the vaults - that is so typically Merlin, I can see and hear Colin gushing with enthusiasm over his discoveries! And that was brilliant the way he tricked Gwaine into demonstrating how the amulet he found doesn't work for nefarious purposes, LOL (nice idea that, btw, that the artefact responds to the user's intentions...I like it). Hmmm Gwen's fear is very plausible, I thought - that the amulet might not interpret her desire to survive as honourable enough and allow her to stay hidden once she'd destroyed the vessel (oh no, is that a bit of foreshadowing, I detect? If so, poor Gwen!).
I thought that reviewing the battle with Morgana from Kay's POV was very well done - different enough (and interspersed with his thoughts on Merlin and everyone else) to not be repetitive. "his body and mind recognized the blackness as a lover and yet repelled it as though it was an unwanted whore, and it made his skin squirm to again be touched by her magic, to be controlled by it…" aww beautifully wrought line that, and great use of analogy! And you perfectly explain why Kay had acted so recklessly - Morgana had driven him over the edge and divorced him from his reason with her insane and cruel behaviour towards his friends and himself. Makes a lot of sense now.
"He would attack her while she was at a disadvantage and hopefully land a hit on the bitch once for himself and then again for Camelot…" oh that did put a huge grin on my face, I couldn't agree more (even though I know how foolish the endeavour was going tobe). Therefore I couldn't help but feel sorry for Kay when it DID go wrong...and laugh when he recalled how precious Morgana had been about her hair as a child.
Kay's insight's into Merlin's dwindling condition sent jolts of pleasure up and down my spine...like a toastie warm feather covered in honey.
"The monster stirred and purred—loving, tender, soft, and warm…like slipping into a warm bath after training in the rain or like ridding oneself of wet socks after a ride in the snow and replacing them with a pair that had just been laundered and dried by the fire… and Kay growled in response to its seductive invitation, shoving it back down and away." Ooh that sent shivers down my spine too, for its perfect metephor usage and image inspiration. Lovely stuff! And the madness as it began to take over Kay's mind - interspersed with the cries of whoever was frantically trying to bring him out of his fugue - was very evocatively done...made my stomach squirm with fear for Kay.
Arrrghhh what a cliffie! And there's not going to be another update for ages? *Sob* I am bereft! But of course, it's understandable - RL must come first - so I must be patient and wait *sits on hands determinedly to stop fingers tapping*. So glad to know you have ideas for other fics to come - yay, can't wait! LOL, I'm like you with the long chapters and lack of forward planning - but hey, your writing's still wonderful and a joy to read, so I'm not complaining.
Good luck with your PCAT and I'm looking forward to seeing your next update whenever you have the time :O)
