Wow, I legit cannot put into enough words on how much I absolutely adored this story! I laughed, I cried, I had to stop multiple times to put down my phone so I could screech into my pillow! I binge read this all in one sitting and it left my hear feeling full and happy! The entirety of it made me want to scream into the sun for days because it was utterly perfect! Your writing drew me in and kept me hostage as I just could not put this down, not that I'd want to because just wow! I know you wrote this in 2012 and you might not even be on this platform anymore, but I wanted to leave a comment regardless because I'm just so blown away by your creativity and dedication for gifting us this beautiful piece of fiction!
I hope you're having a wonderful day where ever you may be and just a quick thank you again for this wonderful fic!

Favorite part of chapter 12: how it paralleled Agravaine and Merlin's confrontation in Canon, and of course Arthur taking credit for it afterwards.

Favorite part of chapter 11: Everyone needs friends. You can be my friend, okay. I don't care if you're a king. That can't be worse than being magic.
Close second: correct use of the word officious.
Favorite part of chapter 13: "Arthur, about Agravaine. I—"
"I punished him for his treachery."
Merlin rolled his eyes. "I'm not four. I know what happened to your uncle.

| cindy4651 chapter 3 . 5/28
Favorite part of chapter 3: Merlin had lied to him from the day they met, but Merlin had never used his power to harm Arthur or anyone in Camelot. He knew this was true because if Merlin had this much power as a child and he harbored any inclination to harm him as an adult, Arthur wouldn't be alive right now.

Beyond cute! I'd never read a de-aged Merlin fic before. I'm so glad this was my first one. Absolutely loved all of it. So cute and sweet! Also, loved the plot! Thanks for this fun story.

Oh my gosh, tiny Merlin is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen (read?). And I love the way you showed all the different characters' relationships to Merlin, juxtaposed against such a happy, free child. This is amazing and keep up the great work!
