God I love chapter 14. Morgana and Merlin conversation and banter, bamf!Merlin, Arthur realising the extent of Merlin's capabilities and loyalty. This is the kind of story I yearn for. Love it.

It was an impressive history. I must admit I did not know who would choose Merlin. Of course the heart of Merlin was a mess.

Noooo! You did not leave it there!

Good job! Xxx

Amazing story. I liked the first, but totally loved it's sequel! I mean, it was perfect. It had kind-of-BAMF!Merlin, Arthur realizing how much he depended on Merlin, it had Mithian and their impossible-yet-true-love story, and, OMG, it had this Morgana I had never seen before, and she was just wow!
So... How about a sequel? An one shot sequel? Anything at all?
Your ideas were incredible! I hope to (I actually will) read more of your work soon!

Okay, I've been reading your stories (the first one and this sequel) for about 2 hours now, and I haven't stopped to review. But after this last sentence about the whirlwind I had to say I'm loving this!

i really liked this but i was hoping for a mergana end and yes that is the loose end as her and aithusa together in that relationship definitly means merlin will get more morgana time and they could be so good together she is already looking at things differently after their chats even if just slightly

It was so good I read it all in two days!
| hanipman chapter 19 . 11/7/2012
Had to reread this part. It hurts to see a love that could never be, especially when fate has decreed them enemies. Oh well, as long as Aithusa lives.

I get the feeling that Merlin is too selfless when he says "I will marry no other". The only barrier I see between Mithian and Merlin is the distance. If there were a woman with a much easier circumstance, then marriage would have been an ideal event. Merlin can't run on pure loyalty forever. The support of friends and brothers can only go so far. Someone who could fill the role of Merlin's true love, his constant support, is something he shouldn't turn away. Very foolish for the wise Merlin.

This was a very interesting, unusual fic. I found the interaction between Merlin and the various other characters (Morgana, Arthur & Mithian) fascinating. I think that your ending was well done. Merlin really can't be with Mithian unless Mithian is willing to leave Nemeth and accept Arthur as her king, and I don't see that happening. I am sorry Merlin let Morgana go but I think you did a great job explaining why he did so.

Really enjoyed both this and the prequel! Went looking for some well-written Merlin/Mithian fics and this was pretty much the only one. If anything the ends of chapters sometimes feel a bit too undramatic, at least in Trickery and Lies - I mean that the last line often merely stated the events in a chronological and slightly stale manner, not providing as much foreword momentum as it might.
Also in the span of a few paragraphs Mithian goes from realizing that she's a bit jealous to realizing and accepting that she is in love. Maybe these medieval types have a flair for the dramatic but personally I would have preferred to see her grapple with that jealousy and a growing attraction before defining her emotions as "love". This is probably a matter of taste, since it's something I'm almost always complaining about, but I feel another level of realism could have been added there.
All in all your grasp of character is very good - everything feels believable - and it was an enjoyable read.
The ending made sense but was somewhat unsatisfying. Feels like I just finished The Two Towers and was told that there would be no Return of the King.

loved, both the stories made me a Merlin/Mithian shipper...hope you'll write one with their pairing sometimes soon
| SunnySmile1324 chapter 20 . 10/27/2012
NO NO NO NOOOOO! this can't be the end! I love Merlin/Mithian but I also love Merlin/Morgana. and you have left one terribly heartwrenching loose end: no Merlin kissing Mithian! please write more? PLEASE? :3

Meh! I was holding out hope for these two. And now I'm sad faced. At the same time though, I love this, because the way you tell the story is so wonderful. But still... Why must their love be futile?
