Chronos guardian chapter 30 . 2/21
Oh no the dragons are dying! Merlin do something.
wryter501 chapter 6 . 1/22
this story had a feel of homer's odyssey to it... i like the idea of nimueh sending challenges their way (based on episodes?)... i'm glad to see balinor and hunith (his real parents? then the parents he knew that died were a foster family?) and am looking forward to the revelation of that mystery!

LaRieNGuBleR chapter 35 . 12/16/2013
Well, I'm not sure if this is the real me or the other versions of me is reading this chapter. :D A bit confuse but I get the idea.

Arthur had found Merlin finally! (jumping around the room) I hope they don't have to be separated again. (sigh)
where the wind blows chapter 35 . 12/14/2013
Meeeeeeep you updated! I actually screamed for joy when I saw that you had! Such a good chapter! They are finally together! And it looks liker Merlin is about to kick some ass! Hehe though I wonder if he was will at after the fight, he does seem a little broken and can he really be okay from being trapped in the dark for so long? That wold make anyone crazy even if you where all powerful and whatnot. Anyway wonderful chapter! I cannot wait for more! This is by far my favorite Merlin/Arthur story ever!?

Update soon please!

ohh nice I liked this one
The Fox Familiar chapter 8 . 12/13/2013
Such homoerotica. That tree scene was enough to get every girl and her ugly chins wet. Not me, of course.
The Fox Familiar chapter 7 . 12/13/2013
Now we have a Hunger Games marathon. What's the point of this, again? If the King is dying, don't you think they should skip all this?

That King really must be an asshole.
The Fox Familiar chapter 6 . 12/13/2013
So they're on a journey to find something to cure the King. Don't you think they'd have a plan before going? Because to me they seem to be doing nothing but dicking around.

*sigh* More nonsense.
The Fox Familiar chapter 5 . 12/13/2013
I have no idea how you got this far with this cheesiness. It reads like a gay pirate novel. It drags on and on and I don't know if this is supposed to be Merlin or some doofus trying to be him. I have no idea what you're trying to do here, but it fails epically, and I'm only on the fifth chapter. It's obvious you've been ass-kissed to kingdom come, and I'm here to change that.

Even if this didn't have slash, I would still flame it for being so poorly written.

And Lancelot. He's supposed to be a badass. What did you do to him here?
The Fox Familiar chapter 4 . 12/13/2013
Four chapters in, and we got some token lesbians and some effeminate guys in here. If there's anything I hate more than Mary-Sues, it's useless characters that don't do anything.

I have no idea what this plot is supposed to be: is it about saving the King or not? Because it reads like a bad anime. They're going all over the place for no reason and the only reason that people are reading this is because of the slash. I wonder what that's like: fingering anuses, "screams of pleasure", what have you - I know the type. You girls don't have anything to show.

In any case, the writing is bad. It's flat, the dialogue is strange to read, and it physically makes me cringe. When that happens, I know this story is a POS. This is one bad porno, chickie.
The Fox Familiar chapter 3 . 12/13/2013
Jesus. Three chapters in and I don't care for anybody. This is boring as fuck.

What's the magic? "I raise an erection?"

No wonder women can't write worth a darn.
The Fox Familiar chapter 1 . 12/13/2013
So: King is ill, token pirates, token faggot there to save the day, add lots of buttsex and rape, rinse and repeat, PROFIT.
Merthur Dreamer chapter 34 . 10/18/2013
Your family ties hurt...
That beginning scene was horrible, seriously. I was of the belief that the dragons had gone someplace after Merlin's accidental use of the Cup of Life... but oh, woe is me... it all seems to meaningless now, doesn't it?
I mean - the world before all this is very much different - I remember, way back when, and months gone past - when Merlin and Arthur were budding their relationship - it was unravelling slowly, to show something tenderly bright; there was of course links to a deeper past on both sides... but never did I expect such extravagence in evil...
There were the stages to gain the Cup of Life... then there were the trails afterward, and the wrecking ball of emotion and the Island Revisited...
Where are Nimueh and Alfred in all this? Puppets on strings it seems... and I feel, as a reader, somewhat extremely tired, and worn of feeling.
Of course Arthur drunk the vial... because at least, as said before, that illusion was the kindest - but yet the worst, because if Arthur kept the pretense - then his Kingdom would have been snatched when he was in corrupted bliss in reminisence.
But as it turns out - all those Merlins after Uther drank the waters were illusions also... other Merlins. Potential Merlins... always HIS Merlin but never HIS Merlin...
And Emrys - dear Emrys... You've just manipulated me into a state of not-able-to-type...
I feel like a rat right now... a rat scratching for scraps... I need this story you know? I need the rest. I'm still convinced that everything will be alright in the end. And because things aren't alright right now, then it isn't the end... it's what's kept me going but... I think you've drained me you know? In a good sense of course but now I'm just...
It's kind of like - I Dreamed A Dream you know?
Merlin and Arthur had such hope for goodness, but it's all be clawed at because of their goodness...
I leave you with Pink because well... this is giving me Finale Feelings I can't handle right now:
You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh
That's right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
'fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling

Fix it...
Fix it now.

Merthur Dreamer chapter 33 . 10/17/2013
Oh my God... that was actually really good - like - thriller good - romance epic good and just generally mind frellingly awesome good _
Hey, I'm sorry for the really late review, as I always say. My reviews might be shorter now because I have more stuff to do with A-Levels while still keeping everyone happy.
I'm not as young as I once was - and I'm only 16 now...
Anyways, I'll try and be concise, precise and uber awesome for you _

I GET IT NOW!
...
I think...
Is ARTHUR'S MERLIN the Dragon that Julian was referring to? Oh why, oh why, can't there ever be a good bad guy. I understand that evil and suffering exists, but despite evil and suffering existing, why should I feel it so strongly compared to another?
I did cry inside at some moments, awwed at others, and dried my inner turmoil in the rest.
Julian doesn't seem like you typical business man, and he's quite interesting really. I didn't feel any EVIL there you know... only logical hopscotch of mind trailing.
It made me feel so warm in sadness how Arthur wouldn't let himself be fooled - knowing that his Merlin would be right there if he was able. And I have to admit, for the rest of the scene, with Julian playing out his power... I really did hear 'Poor, Unfortunate Souls' from The Litter Mermaid... Bare with me okay?
Arthur is innocent - he hasn't done anything to delibrately kill or harm anyone... and he is being taken advantage of - Julian knows his pressure/weak point, and is taking him out from the inside out...
And may I just add - that the entire aura of this chapter... was incredibly sad. As in - Arthur was trading his heart away for just a moment's glory you know? You painted such a desperate man, such a desperate Arthur - it was truly nerve-creating. The line in which Arthur said that Merlin was 'Just Merlin.'... that line really cried to me because... I just had this image of how there was Arthur, who's really lost now - I mean, he isn't withered in bitterness, or stuck in time emotionally like a Miss Havisham... but he is... in his own sense - he is a somewhat broken man, and it just really hurt on a human level how I think he knew for a moment that his 'reward' was all just an illusion: he knew it was an illusion, but the fact that he thought it the kindest one so far just really hurt you know?
Anyways, of course, as always, the suspense and intimatcy in your Merlin/Arthur scenes was both touching and golden - I felt bathed in it. It really was too perfect, wasn't it? And the subtle hints to its false perfection were quite harrowing, like Merlin's 'experience', that magic was so freely accepted, that their union was so widely appreciated, that everyone was just sharing a moment of mutual okayishment...
And there's Arthur, in his bedchambers, after some very satisfying excerise, and yet it still can't shift the ice in his heart - there is a curse on him, a curse he knows he cannot win - that when he gets too close to Merlin, the pins stick further in.
THEN THAT ENDING!
Jesus Christ - first you make me emotionally worn out, with Arthur's outbursts and his 'I have nothing left TO lose'... with all the emphasis on how Merlin is someone he can't live without and that goodness is something immaterial (in spiritual senses) and then NOW - with that bombshell of an idea that Merlin's trapped somewhere... I praise your writing - because nothing is written in jest, and everything is written for a purpose...

I'm actually quite speechless now - this chapters has actually dazzled me with its shades of red and its shades of blue.
