does it make more sence if I read from 1-100 or to follow the chart on 101 I'm so confused
| LordOfFigaro chapter 101 . 9/12/2016
Sometimes, fanfiction creates stories that are better than the original. This is one of those times. One of the most amazing fics I've read.

This started out well but is a train wreck. Morgana and Merlin should have been married long ago with Uther's approval when Arthur and Gwen married.

ah, regret. imo, the worst of emotions, because it cannot be changed. always, too late.
the thing about forgiveness, though. it comes in two parts - the first being, the one who was wronged, letting go of bitterness. the second being, the one who committed the wrong, being sorry for it as a wrong. i think merlin doesn't hold bitterness, but i think morgana (much like uther) will either not admit she was wrong, or else, would make the same decisions and choices all over again, if she could go back. and being sorry for the hurt you caused, is not the same as recognizing the action should never have been taken...

i don't think it's about making even choices, one person's needs and wants, vs. another's. i think there is a right and a wrong in the middle ground, and /that/ is what's important. not, letting uther live b/c arthur needs/wants a father. not, denying morgana's complicated desires when it came to uther's death.
it's, when you take the right to judge another's right to live, you step onto very dangerous ground. if merlin judges uther unfit to live, he puts himself in a position to judge /every/ person so, basically usurping every other secular authority - and if that's not fair, then neither is his taking uther's life in his hands, to save or allow another to take. the gift of strong magic does not give that right, not like the hereditary responsibility of governorship/kingship/rule.
it's not right for merlin to pick and choose, who is worthy to live, and who not. that's what uther did, and it wasn't right for him, either.

oh, for gosh sakes. he took your advice and things went bad, and so he's the one to blame? get rid of him, we'll try again. not, geez we're bad at this, we should /let well enough alone/! our mistakes are understandable, even unavoidable, /his/ are unforgivable?!
it occurs to me, morgause is doing to morgana exactly what she did to merlin. and i'm sorry to say, i think she deserves every bit of it...
| wryter501 chapter 97 . 11/27/2015
so, yeah. former allies don't agree, new allies won't form b/c they don't trust...
that's not arthur's fault, that's just the legacy of being his father's son.
| wryter501 chapter 84 . 11/27/2015
you know, i think the series was kinder to mordred, as far as his motivation goes. that he recognized the darkness in morgana as something he /shouldn't/ join to, that he tried his best to be part of something he knew was worthwhile. sure he succumbed to selfishness and hurt in the end, but still.
however, i have to keep in mind that you wrote this before that came out, in-series... ;)
however. i still have to argue against the whole plan. now that arthur is king, they're still going to work against him in favor of someone they consider better, rather than helping and supporting him to what is, after all, a common goal of freedom and justice for those with magic... i get why they oppose arthur in-series - but here, he's already accepted and championed magic... just, /not enough/? and that's really a reason to plot and scheme and undermine and cause conflict?... :(
| wryter501 chapter 95 . 11/27/2015
i'm disappointed. not surprised, but disappointed (not in the writing, though! ;P).
to take advantage of merlin's inclination to trust people, to believe the best in them, to give them second chances (especially morgana). and not only that, but /she's/ the one taking advantage, telling his enemies that about him, to use it against him... that's betrayal. that's not just disagreement on tactics or a parting of ways. stab him in the back, pure and simple.

tragedy is worse when it plays out slowly. b/c the participants as well as the observers feel like, there were chances to avert it, there were choices that became part of it. blame spread and shared, guilt felt. tragedy should smash immediately and unexpectedly, the hurt is the same, but it's /purer/. like a cut instead of a burn...
*sigh*... morgana. but i think, better that she's a clear villain that a conflicted fence-jockey masquerading as a heroine...
