This story is amazing! I couldn't stop reading! Took me about a week to finish. The character dynamics were amazing. I loved the fact that Arthur accepted Merlin's magic from the beginning, there aren't many fanfics that portray or display that possibility and what would have likely happened after, and Arthur accepting Merlin's magic immediately before he was king at all. I loved the friendships in this story, it was all very believeable and seemed like this very well could have happened during the first or second season of the show. The structure of the story was done well, the story flowed. And I loved the switches of Arthur and Merlin saving each others lives. Their reactions, and the way they responded to situations really reflected their personalities. This is probably one of the best and most well-written Merlin fanfics I've read(and I read alot). Please keep writing!

I really enjoyed this story. Thank you. I love seeing scenarios where Arthur knows about Merlins magic. This was entertaining and you handled the characterizations so well.

What an absolutely outstanding fic! I love how nothing was a coincidence, and everything tied together in the end. Arthur's acceptance and concern made my heart swell! Poor Merlin just can't catch a break though (I guess that's fairly in character for him!), I'm just glad everything was sorted out in the end. Thank you for writing this! xx

While the idea of a Merlin fic focused primarily on healing magic didn’t initially appeal to me, I have loved some of BeyondTheStorm’s other fanfics and thus decided to give Healing Spells a try. I’m so glad I did, because I really loved the story. For one thing, the writing is just really readable and fun; it has a nice flow and a good balance of description and dialogue and such. But there are so many other interesting choices that the author made that just really increased my personal enjoyment of the story beyond just the quality of the writing. You come into the story with Arthur already knows about and accepts Merlin’s magic–there is a reveal scene, but it doesn’t come until about halfway through, where it’s presented as a flashback. So you’ve got this great dynamic of Arthur realizing everything Merlin’s done for him and who he really is, so there’s a whole new level of trust and closeness between the two that’s really great. You see a softer, more caring, yet still gruff and awkward (because this is Arthur, you know?) side to the prince which is really neat. And surprisingly (yet credibly) there’s a really interesting dynamic of Merlin having a harder time trusting Arthur and still keeping secrets even though he knows Arthur’s already accepted him. I also enjoyed that this was set in season 2, so that 1) a lot of the bad stuff that make it really hard for Merlin to trust Arthur with his secret haven’t happened, and 2) you get some great Morgana friendship (not a major focus of this fic, but it’s there and it’s nice. I miss this Morgana.). Of course, the downside of that is that you don’t get the awesomeness that is the Inner Circle of the Knights, but it works in this story. There are some great Merlin/Gwen friendship scenes; I can’t get enough of that friendship, truly! And a few fabulous fatherly Gaius moments. Plus, there’s a lot of interconnected plot, some big stuff that develops outside of Merlin’s experimentation that ends up influencing the consequences of his choices. So yeah, big plot and some pretty deep ideas are developed as well. All together, Healing Spells was a very interesting and enjoyable story, and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author.

"And unfortunately, no amount of practice in the art of healing would help to reattach a head once it's left the body, especially if the one trying to do the reattaching is the owner of said head."
I'm afraid before i start the story ! xD hhhh

I have now finished reading all of your stories but I must say that I think this one was my favorite! It was entertaining and wonderfully written! I really wish you had more stories for me to read, but I see you haven't written anything in several years. I do you hope you are at least still writing something though because you are very talented!

I've really liked your story. I just wanted to mention a continuity error. In this chapter everyone acts like no one has died of the illness yet, when you clearly stated earlier that many had. Just thought I'd point it out in case you wanted to go back and edit.
