I loved this chapter. It's so sad to think of anybody having their passion and joy turned into a burden like this. I'm so glad that Arthur saw the problem and managed to find a way to help Merlin. I'm even happier that Merlin got his joy of playing/composing back.

Great story line

This was totally cute, and completely believable. Loved the way Arthur kept hounding at Merlin to stay health and take a break; it's what I make my bff do when she's sick
There really aren't enough gen modern AU's, and even fewer where Merlin isn't magical and has to hide it. Sometimes i don't want a magical or love story between the two, I just want to enjoy their awesome friendship.

Holy cow. Modern gen. It's a beautiful thing to see and almost impossible to find. Especially when it's so nicely done. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I would LOVE to read more!

S'nice revelation piece. Ow on the wound description, on the other hand great opportunity for telling horrible secrets about hidden power.
Can totally buy Merlin needing rescued in that scenario. Having a harder time with Arthur having such shitty woodcraft he just makes sparks on wet wood and wishes for fire. I've never been trained in firemaking particularly, but offhand I can think of five different things he could have been doing to get a good heap of tinder and kindling that wasn't sopping wet and was small enough for sparks to actually catch - most of it involves going out in the rain again and searching more systematically for the right kinds of trees, but even shaving what he already grabbed down small is better than the insane futility of striking sparks onto wet wood. It's one thing when the fire won't light because everything is wet, but it's another when the fire won't light, and your attempts to light it probably wouldn't work during drought.
On the other hand, it's not like realistic detail was a major thing on Merlin. Arthur's self-harming dedication to getting a fire was very persuasive and alarming, it just came off hard to take seriously because of bad technique - but it's easy to feel that way during his sword fights, too, so maybe I should just suck it up. Fanfic, right?

Thank you Stealth Dragon. A very enjoyable story. I do enjoy your method of writing a modern Merlin.

Awesome. There are simply not enough gen modern AUs out there, and I'm so glad you've contributed one to the too-small collection.
