So wonderful. This is the second time I've read it.

Magic is indeed important to you... yes, he is. :)
when nimueh told morgana she would have to protect one of the dragon-born (i assumed arthur was the 'him' that had his own protector - merlin), i also assumed morgana would have to protect gwen...
interesting reaction from arthur - to punch merlin. :)
| wryter501 chapter 15 . 4/2/2014
oh, interesting - so ragnelle put the spell on herself...
actually, i was trying to figure out who that short blonde knight could have been, a side character maybe - but merlin in disguise is a surprise! :)
| wryter501 chapter 13 . 4/2/2014
i have a feeling - though i confess to knowing something about the legend - that ragnelle's appearance has to do with an enchantment? that morgana and merlin can see through, and therefore don't understand gwaine and gwen's make-the-best-of-it reaction?
and now, if you'll pardon the expression, the shit has really hit the fan... !
| wryter501 chapter 12 . 4/2/2014
does merlin think about the fact that he's betraying arthur as well, since arthur is betrothed to morgana at this point?
oh, i see - i wondered why merlin succumbed with his magic to protect him, but this makes good sense - that alator and nimueh would handle it, and merlin would pretend to be affected...
oooh, complications of the sleeping spell! gaius and leon! and then not gwaine, even with morgana - interesting!
i'm sad nimueh and alator had to leave, but i'm glad you're introducing ragnelle as gwaine's gal - that's according to legend, isn't it...
| wryter501 chapter 11 . 4/2/2014
you know, it occurs to me to wonder what might happen when/if morgana sees merlin wearing a similar pendant...
i like nimueh on the good guys' side. oh, good, merlin's pov is coming up - i have to wonder how he'll handle this, since he's not the only sorcerer protecting camelot...
| wryter501 chapter 10 . 4/2/2014
i love the image of percival dealing with vivian - i imagine he's big enough to make her do what he wants, very gently, of course... :P
everyone, all together now - oh, poor merlin. and good for arthur at the end!
| wryter501 chapter 8 . 4/2/2014
oh, poor arthur... five really doesn't work out well, does it... but i'm sure he'll get his... :)
| wryter501 chapter 6 . 4/1/2014
how small you are for such a great destiny - very appropriate, considering his age...
i like alator's role in this, and i like balinor dying trying to free the dragons... sad i suppose but better than holed up in a cave for twenty years...
| wryter501 chapter 5 . 4/1/2014
omg morgana choosing between arthur, gwaine, and merlin - and then you didn't tell us what she chose! hm, prophetic allegorical dream and actually really happening dream... suspenseful!
oh, omg again - balinor was morfyn's older son, wasn't he? that means the dragonlord heritage passes to little merlin instead of cenred...
damn, merlin, just a little kid, telling a dragon to go away and don't hurt anyone anymore... i think i might cry at the thought...
| wryter501 chapter 4 . 4/1/2014
i like gwaine firmly in support of magic before he even knows about merlin, accepting that there are those with magic hiding and helping in camelot... i was a little concerned about merlin having to keep a secret like that from best friends as a child, but this is one that will understand, i think... good to know - and interesting that gwaine would consider that he's keeping magic secret from merlin...
so merlin and arthur faced the great dragon and lived... and leon... and you managed to have gwaine and percival present as well - well done!
| wryter501 chapter 3 . 4/1/2014
nice point, that the girls' friendship as well as the boys' is about opposites attracting...
why is it, whenever they talk about running, i think of the start of the crystal cave ep? :)
so funny and cute how you describe their hugs - the bear hug from gwaine and the awkward cuddle from merlin. :D
and an interesting twist to how uther was responsible for gorlois' death...
| wryter501 chapter 2 . 4/1/2014
much worse for little merlin meeting uther, though, knowing how much the king hates magic... grown-up merlin would have more confidence on that score, i think... so uther is taking morgana, while her father is still alive?...
arthur is so cute - oh, i have one of those!
yeah, gwaine! - i'm wearing a huge grin right now!
there's merlin and gwen standing together discussing arthur - you sounded proud of him just then...that's dialogue from the excalibur ep, isn't it?
| wryter501 chapter 1 . 4/1/2014
i love these kids! still the same type of banter, friendly teasing, but without the tension of their older selves... much easier for a ten-year-old to say, let's be friends... :)

Great story. I have a spot for stories where Merlin is a Royal, but there aren't many as such. So yours make my day!
