Better Decision Making by Pawthorn reviews
What the people of Camelot lack in common sense, they make up for with strength, courage, and melodrama. But this series of one-shots explores what might happen if our favorite characters made better choices. Spoilers abound. Now: Series Five Sucked. Merlin can do better.
