"I hope for the best, and expect the worst." - Josh Ramsay


I'll try and keep this brief, I don't want to ramble on too much and bore whoever's reading this to death.

Things you should know about me:

  1. I find replying to reviews hard and awkward, so if you review with just one or two words, like "great chapter" or "brilliant", please don't expect me to respond. Because honestly, I'm not good at socialising and what am I meant to respond to?
  2. I'm always here to talk if you need someone to talk to, or if you just want to chat. Chances are, if you have a problem, I might share it too. I'm a pretty messed up person.
  3. I don't take kindly to people who bully or flame. If you do either to me, or anyone I know on this site, expect a harsh message.
  4. I'm a teenager, so if you think my writing is either amateur or immature, blame my age. So far, however, no one's told me that.
  5. I'm a beta reader! You can go check the little profile thing if you want to know more :)

I have just finished doing my GCSEs which were a lot of work and now I'm doing my A-levels! As such, I am quite busy but still aiming to update regularly but please, if I haven't updated at all, it's probably because I have a load of work to do and combined with an anxiety disorder, I might need to halt fanfiction for a while. Not happened yet, though!

We Duel At Dawn by JessieJay13 reviews
Merlin was squinting at him, concentrating very hard. Arthur waited for him to say whatever it was he was thinking so hard about. What he finally got was, "Fight me." Arthur was hard-pressed not to laugh out loud. Merlin looked so determined, his chin up and eyes narrowed, but he was obviously still high as balls. In which Arthur is a nurse and Merlin is on copious pain meds.
