FREYLIN FTW! Freya is my all time favorite character, even though she's only come around for a couple of episodes. I was so sad when she died... Love this revealfic, it rocks and rolls.

Dear Mark, if you ever read this -
Thank you for your critique, though it was a bit hard for me to take at first. But you have a valid point. Even I wondered if having Merlin actually cry and flinch away from Arthur was going too far. But will you allow me a moment to sort of apologize and sort of defend my choices? Firstly, this had to be an intense moment for Merlin, and obviously, he would be scared of how Arthur would react to it. Most of the fandom would be scared for him, frankly. When I had him sink to the floor, it was to show he was just sort of worn-out from the intensity of the moment. This choice I defend whole-heartedly. In a way, he's sort of subjecting himself to whatever Arthur chooses, if that makes sense. Beyond that I'm less sure. I can only say this: I probably overplayed Merlin's vulnerable side. I recognize that Merlin is a total Boss with the power to own all his enemies, but he doesn't want to own anyone here. And the fact that Merlin has canonically cried a couple of times convinced me, at least at the time of writing this, that it wouldn't be TERRIBLY out-of-character, like it would be for some characters. And so I used that to showcase Arthur's virtues, and show Arthur in a good light. All in all, I probably shouldn't have made him cry, I agree, and I apologize if it weakened the character for you. I will try to portray a stronger Merlin if I write any more fics!

Um, seriously OOC for Merlin; he just sinks to the ground and starts crying etc?

this was great. I'm certain it won't happen this way, but that's why it's nice to read it. so thanks for writing it.
