That was... unexpected. Amazing reversal of roles, I really love the way you wrote this. Poor, stupid, drama queen Merlin

THIS was a good "Arthur finds out about magic" fic! Not that there aren't other, and not that I don't love the angst (and yes, this had angst, don't get me wrong) but THANK YOU! Finally a fic where Arthur doesn't turn into a dork-head who throws however many years of friendship out the window because of the word "magic." THIS is how I think he would react.
Thanks so much for sharing!

This is definitely the best "reveal" fic I've ever read, no contest :D It's original, insanely hilarious, and oddly touching by the end.
The way Merlin just believed Arthur would execute him was believably in-character and yet so sad, but Arthur's final genuine "reaction", when he was yelling at Merlin for being an idiot who's a powerful warlock and doesn't use his powers to save his own life - that was the best moment. I really wish it was more something among those lines in the show - not the ridiculous role-reversal for their respective reactions, but Arthur giving Merlin a free benefit of a doubt. For all those years of service, saving the royal family's lives openly on several occasions and unbreakable loyalty you'd think Arthur would be willing to hear him out from the start. Well, perhaps Arthur being shocked more than anything should be his first reaction, I think. "Incompetent" and "sorcerer" doesn't really fit together, and he should be at least baffled. But the effect Arthur's casual acceptance affected Merlin was so amazing I can't complain about it xD
In short, I love this story. 10/10, great job, high five, you're awesome! ;)

This was great! It was humorous and serious at the same time! That last chapter was icing on the cake! :)

I'm sorry, I really shouldn't be laughing (especially not this hard), but this is an amazing fic and the way you write these scenes, chock-full of- well- everything that makes Arthur and Merlin-well-Arthur and Merlin, for lack of a better way of putting it. Excellent job!

"Hey, where do you think you're going? We have to meet with the council and discuss magical law!"
Aha! It was all just a plot to get Merlin dragged into boring meetings!

He dismissed the not-Merlin and stood in the center of his room, feeling inexplicably empty inside

"Exactly," Gwaine grinned at him, and clapped him on the shoulder. "Now go back to pretending to be angry, Princess. It'll be better for all of us."
"I'm King now, you know," Arthur grumbled. "You can't call me Princess."
"Well I can't very well call you Queen. That's Gwen."
Yeah! Silly Arthur.

Oh dear," Gaius murmured

"No," the Queen gave him a look of affectionate exasperation. "All you need to do is send for his mother."
Welp, now I know who the evil villain is in this story.

The invisible servant, that's me
Heh, I like that this can also be a D&D joke.

Omg, merlin's reaction was great. This was more about merlin's excessive disobedience rather than a reveal fic, which was amazing! Best way to deviate from the cliche "best case scenario" ("you'd find out, lock him up for a while, set an execution date, and then change your mind last minute and stop the proceedings"). That part made me laugh

Very nice, thank you!
