|Reviews for The One True Queen|
| The anomalous chapter 42 . 5/15
This story is absolutely incredible - I have been binge reading it for the last 3 days! I'm always a bit dubious of stories that try to get a different Queen to Guinevere as I like her and Arthur together so much, but you have made Gwynn so lovable and perfect for him that I'm a total convert! The story line is really well thought through: complex, exciting, believable and addicting!
I especially like how you have highlighted Arthur's skills and abilities in this story. Many writers depict Merlin as the sole reason for Arthur being such a good king (I think the show writers are guilty of this too) - sometimes going as far as having Merlin make all Arthur's decisions or making Arthur incapable of making political decisions, battle strategies or even tracking (all of which he's been trained to do 'since birth' and any king worth following should be able to do!). My viewpoint is that, if he is the Once and Future King, then he must possess many leadership and knightly qualities in his own right, for that is why Merlin follows and protects him. As such, when they work together, they are truly unstoppable. And you have seamlessly slotted Gwynn into this legend as well.
So once again, thank you for a fantastic story and I look forward to reading whatever chapters are to come!

I can't believe the day is finally here! I gave up checking for updates a long time ago, but seing this... Aaaah, it makes me so happy! I seriously thought something awful had happened to you and that you couldn't write anymore. So glad to see that's not the case.
The way you have captured the Merlin/Arthur banter we all love is astonishing. I wish this post-magic outing was something we could have seen in the real series as well. It's so strange yet beautiful to see Arthur accepting Merlin for what he is.
I also can't wait to hear more about Helene/Lescaut. That is one messed up relationship. But come on, they must be able to get over their differences to the whole ''what should have really been done'' question.
Also, I can't wait for Gwynn and Arthur to have their happy ending. They deserve it. Seriously though, you're not going to kill him off in the last chapter right? Cause that would be mean. Last comment: I swear those two must be so sexually frustrated right now. I hope they finally get to be together, and that they aren't interrupted by a certain someone - again.
Okay, I'll stop now before I write a novella. Can't wait to hear more from you, VeryShy! You are pretty awesome.

This chapter was definitely worth the wait. I can't wait for the next chapter. Keep up the good work.

Dear VS - I'm elated that you are back writing and going to finish the story! Unbelievably I've been thinking about you the past couple weeks before you posted and was thinking it would be fun to re-read your story! Thanks for the jump start. While I now want to re-read if from the beginning I plunged in anyway and read your latest chapter which reminded me why I liked your writing so much to begin with! I love your take on the story, your humor, your style, and that you are wrapping up loose ends. Bravo! Keep up the great work and keep posting!
Fondly from a huge fan,

what a pleasant surprise to see an update of this week! Made my morning! :D
I am running late to my ortho posting and the attending is super mean but the update should keep me happy through his sarcasm and hate of teaching lowly medical students !

Yay, she lives! So happy that you will finish the story, even though it must be pretty hard to say goodbye to the charcters. But who knows, they might turn up again in oneshots if you want that :) good luck with everything, and cant wait for another update. So great to know you have not given up!

:O You're alive! Ngl, I'll be kinda sad to see this story end but I look forward to reading the ending once you've finished it. Anyhow. Hope you're doing well and all. (:

Look, I know it's been months since this story was updated, and that it probably will stay this way for a while. But, please, please, please finish this story! Something so beautiful really deserves an ending :)

I'm so sorry it's taken me soo long to read this chapter!
It was amazing, and that scene between Arthur and Gwynn in the tent :O naughty! Oh Merlin xD
I know this is such a short review, but hey, it's a review, right? ;D
Anyways, I can't wait for the next installment! xoxoxoxo

I've read this story three times now... you should definately think about publishing! It's probably one of the top three stories I've ever read on this site, if not the very best. Thank you so much for giving us readers a chance to read something so remarcable. I really look forward to reading the last chapter, which will hopefully be out in not too long :) And please, never stop writing!
