Great story, the plot is very engaging. The only complaint I have is that the characters don't seem like their counterparts at all. I personally believe that even in AU the characters should be IC. This is like reading a story with completely different people, only coinciding names.
Other than that, well done.

Wow, this was really good! I really hope you've posted a sequel because I want to know what happens next! Great job!

Found your story and can't put it down. I like the Modern AU take on the characters... can't wait to read more.

This is the best modern AU Merlin's story I have ever read. Well done! :)

Wooo! I thought he'd never recovered (in this story, anyway)
BTW, it's a bit weird when we didn't hear Merlin called Arthur 'prat', but he wasn't one anyway, so it's fair enough. :)

OMG this story was unbelievable I couldn't stop reading and you did not just end it there no way please tell me there is a sequel I need more . Brilliantly written and captivating loved every moment except the part about Arthur getting a record I hate when stories do that tell the police to shove it lol any way just a amazing

I hate you for that cliff-hanger but ILU for this awesome fic. Your stories are always to plotty and your world- building is fabulous. The plot bunnies must really run amok in your brain ( a mixed blessing?).
*calms down somewhat *
I loved Arthur here and the link he had with Merlin. The details of the crimes were very dark and sad, and it hurt a little to see Merlin, who's usually characterized as bubbly and open, so shuttered :(
Thank you for at least giving us that last bit where he says one blessed word and looks Arthur full in the face. Are you sure this is non-slash? All these tender moments of connection and hand-holding. :)
Thanks for a great read 3333

WTF! PLEASE CONTINUE WITH THE STORY!

The story itself is great, but I do have to say I got really tired of running into sentences with missing or incorrect words. And that not even getting in to all the times & places I had to mentally drop words like 'was, had, been' & etc. Or had to mentally rearrange the sentence wording to make sense of what you were trying to say. The sentences below are perfect examples: Please remove words within (' '), they are not needed and make the sentences passive, so you end up telling the story instead of showing. You want to show the story, not tell it.
"Arthur straightened up and Elena sidled past him and out the door. He turned to look at Merlin, who ('was') still sat quietly, unmoving from the position that Elena ('had') left him in, staring straight ahead, hands folded in his lap."

That was fantastic, I'm sorry I'm only just posting this now but I only just discovered and devoured it over the last 3 days
Veilwhuarrah recommended I read this story, she said it was really good and full of angst and bromance and whump and I'm so glad I did. Exciting and drama and detective story all rolled into one. Love this portray of Merlin 'Locked in' you managed to make him so compelling even though he barley spoke or moved an inch. I though the fact Arthur was answerable to his actions even if he ultimately got off was a lot more realistic than in stories that end with the perpetrator being killed but with no fall out. Love the ending, couldn't be any other way really. So glad there is squeal -I'm going to read that now.

That cuddle ... it just owns me. Beautifully written.

I spent the whole day to read this straight through and I loved it. I watch shows like Criminal Minds, Castle, and Law & Order SVU that have similar themes to this. I think that this story did as well as those tv shows. There were parts that kept me awake at night cuz it scared me so bad (I was stupid and read it at like 10 p.m and finished it around midnight or 1 am.). I think you did an amazing job and I have started to read the sequel. I love your writing style. It really draws the readers into the story. I have feelings for the characters and felt for them, even the ones who weren't really introduced (the already dead ones) and that proves to me that you are a good author.

'here be dragons!' - I had to LOL.
And the details.. and the delicate delicate steps... so beautifully written I actually had to hold myself back from quick-reading it all, I was so anxious to see what's happening next...

Brilliant, absolutely amazing! Did you ever consider writing professionally? This was good enough to be a proper story in a book. Chilling in some parts, and a lot of rising tension with an epic conclusion. Hoping to hear more from you. If any more of your stories are like this, I will definitely enjoy them!
