Reviews for A Friend in Need

This is really good! It's interesting to see someone ELSE dealing with magic for once :-) Update soon!
Ryne42 chapter 5 . 7/16/2012


Okay. This is phenomenal. Seriously, the twist with the one-eye-glowing and Merlin's ability to identify the magician... That is great, and I don't think I've seen anyone else give him that talent. If they did they didn't explain it nearly as well as you. Gwaine's ongoing internal debate about the inherent goodness of magic is fantastic; and I love how he goes to Merlin because he can count on him for his honesty (oh, the irony! D:).


Amazing. I'm very excited for the next chapter. Keep up the great work!
Ryne42 chapter 4 . 7/16/2012
I wanted Merlin to tell him so badly that it actually hurt. I could feel Merlin's anxiety and his deep, burning desire to let his friend know that he understands. This was magnificent.

One little thing: in the second-last paragraph, it says 'But Gwaine could sense his disease.' Did you mean distress?

Either way, phenomenal. This is glorious.

Uh oh. Who dat? Who grabbed Gwaine!

Guess: The sorcerer who accidentally gave Gwaine magic instead of Arthur?

Can't wait to read more! I do have two small things to point out to you, though. At the beginning of the chapter, you said that Merlin never intended to leave. But at the end of last chapter, you said "Merlin rose to leave" or something like that. So might want to edit that sentence last chapter. Second thing, which maybe there's a reason for, at one point you said it was Gwaine's left eye that turned gold, at another you said it was his right. Was that intentional?

Update update update! Please?

WOAH WHAT JUST HAPPENED! Please update soon!
A. L. Washington chapter 5 . 7/16/2012
Cliff-hanger. Great.

I loved the chapter! You really managed to express Gwaine's feelings! Brilliant writing.

But...*sigh*...Now I'm going to be wondering about this sudden, forever. Or...until you update?
Good job!
carinims01 chapter 5 . 7/16/2012
oh no! gwaine's being kidnapped! ...or something like that! all very awesome! i loved it! but one thing though...the first time you described gwaine's eyes glowing gold you said it was the left one, but on the training field, you said right...just to let you know unless you meant to do that! ok...well...very awsome! and please upate soon!

Oh this is so GOOD! Squeal! I can't wait to read more. You have me thoroughly enthralled. And I really like what you're doing with Gwaine. Most people end up saying he's totally fine with magic or at least would be if faced with a black and white choice (I tend to think that way about him, too.) So this is really a unique take.

Update soon please!
Guest chapter 4 . 7/16/2012
Oh, Merlin. You just left him alone. THAT'S why so many of the sorcerers went bad. They couldn't control it, and couldn't talk to anybody about it. At least, that's what happened with Morgana. She was scared and alone and took solace in someone that she believed could help her.

Aaaaand inward babble now done.

Anywho, I am totally LOVING this story! It's amazing. I can't wait for the next chapter.
CelticGirl223 chapter 4 . 7/15/2012
Merlin should just tell him the truth.
saroura92 chapter 4 . 7/15/2012
i hope he would'nt make the same mistake he did with Morgana and actualy help Gwaine
MamzelleHermy chapter 4 . 7/15/2012
I loved the chapter. It is interesting to see Gwaine having the same doubts that Merlin had. I just wish Merlin would tell him about his magic :) Can't wait for the next chapter!
Kitsu3 chapter 4 . 7/14/2012
Ooh, this is a good story. You see Merlin revealing his magic to Gwaine and Arthur all over the place, but Gwaine revealing magic to Merlin? Now that's original. And you're capturing Gwaine's reaction to the whole situation excellently. I'm definitely enjoying this.

I'm reviewing a bit late, and mostly doing so now because of this, strange and largely unhelpful person that I am:

"But Gwaine could sense his disease."

Unease. D Unless I'm missing something critical, lol. Okay, that's it.

Poor Gwaine, you're going to get entirely the wrong impression about Merlin, aren't you?

readernurse chapter 4 . 7/14/2012
Poor Gwaine! You do such a good job writing emotions - both Merlin's and Gwaine's. I like the little details like the woman in the street and Merlin cleaning Gwaine's room. Great chapter, and I can't wait to see what happens next!
Fluffy The Terrible chapter 4 . 7/14/2012
You idiot Merlin! Say you have magic for goodness sake!
