Reviews for Keepsake
christinemarie13 chapter 7 . 2/15
I liked this but the ending just didn't have the same satisfaction as regularly structured stories. And that first chapter confused me quite a bit at first. But I liked the writing and the actual plot.

So unconventional! Loved it- thank you for sharing! :)
BakerTennant'sTardis chapter 1 . 7/11/2012
I loved it! However, forgive me if once I found out it was going backwards, I went to chapter 7 and just kept going to the previous chapter. ;P Great story though! Congratulations for the one of the most original plots (backwards and all) I've ever seen!

really nice style of writing! the order of the events left me utterly confused :p but now i have realized that its backwards it makes so much more sense lol keep up the good work! :)
animeloveramy chapter 7 . 6/9/2011
a sequal could be good...

i'm not sure if i like the slightly unconventional structure you used...but it was clever and very well written...i think i'm going to have to go back and read the first chapter again...i kinda skimmed it in a way, trying to understand what was happening. i enjoyed it though, it was a very good story XD
Iniga chapter 1 . 4/10/2011
I was feeling lazy and read this from 7 to 1. I do love that you did a backwards fic, since in a lot of mythology Merlin lives backwards.

And I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was so confused and I clicked away out of frustration.

Then I realized, "IT'S BACKWARDS!"

:D That was genius.

This story is backwards. Literally.

Oh, I think I understand almost everything now. Which feels quite amazing, since I've been so confused for almost the entire story

I think I like the way you wrote Kilgharrah. He was maybe a little bit nicer than he is in canon, but he would almost have to be in the case of this story. I liked his and Merlin's dialogue. And how you explained the neckerchief thing - both in this chapter and the one before (I loved Merlin's and Arthur's conversation about his neckerchief in last chapter ).

So; job well done! Happy Christmas, best wishes and God's blessing to you!

I did like the story, but the reversed-order chapters were unsettling. It would be a good story in the proper order.

I suggest you indicate in the first chapter that each chapter goes back in time, or that the chapters are in reverse order. I suspect you lost some readers early on.

I almost quit reading in confusion, though I liked your writing enough to continue once I figured out what you were doing.

Happy holidays, and I'll keep an eye out for future multi-chapter stories.

This is an interesting story! I like how you went backwards! Can't wait for the next chapter!
Yukka Sam chapter 5 . 10/22/2010
Ooops Im late! I didnt see you had updated...

I really liked this chapter, it was pretty intense when Merlin adn Arthur were captured and Arthur had to make his was pretty heartbreaking...(

Morgause is creepy...

See ya!)
Mnemosyne77 chapter 5 . 10/11/2010
Ooh, good chapter and very interesting. Not sure what Morgause's motivation is though, unless it's just to force Merlin into revealing his powers to her (which, of course, he'd just done).

I am enjoying that this story's being told backwards; it just brings an extra something to it. Update soon!
Aimael chapter 5 . 10/11/2010
Good chapter, but - and this time, I don't think it's my fault - a bit confusing at times. At the scene in the cave (which I really anjoyed otherwise ) there was some confusion as to who was speaking or doing some things a few times, Arthur or Merlin.

["Merlin reckoned he must look just as bad.

"Arthur. . ."

"We've been captured." he said desperately, "Your armour's gone and we're in some sort of cave; there's barely any light. . .I don't know who found us, I didn't have time to register the voice before I was knocked out. . ."

He sat silent for a couple of seconds, before Arthur roared as he shook his manacles ferociously to no avail.

Arthur stared at his battered manservant, his eyes downturned and his breathing heavy, "I can't touch the floor." the dark haired boy finally whispered.]

Especially those few sentences. Check them again, perhaps?

And, well, the truth about Arthur's memories is out, as you put it - but you still haven't explained what he did and why, and I kind of doubt you'll explain it in later chapters, since those will be set before this one. Perhaps you should check that as well?

More critique than praise, I know, but believe me, I still thought the chapter was good, and I really want to read the next one.

See ya!
