Author has written 3 stories for Merlin, and Harry Potter.

I only read Merlin fanfic. I always thought fanfic, as a rule, was weird until Season 5 of Merlin happened. So here I am still looking for that perfect fic to make everything great, fill in all the plot holes and fix everything they did horribly wrong, which is pretty much everything from 4x06 through all of Season 5, in my opinion. With the exception of a few moments in individual episodes, anyway. Even all these years later, Merlin plot bunnies plague me. Maybe someday I'll get around to writing them all.

My current focus is on my story Castle of Cards, though I had such a good reaction to the prologue, I will turn it into a proper prequel once I'm finished with COC. That prequel will take the story into the time just before and following Arthur's birth. I'm planning another fic in this universe that will begin when Merlin arrives in Camelot and take us to Arthur becoming king. I will always finish my fics, even if sometimes life gets in the way and I'm a little slow to update. I'll try to warn you if a new update might not be within a few weeks of my last one.

I'm working on creating a map, for those that might get confused about the locations, I just haven't had the time to yet.

I will be going back and editing Castle of Cards in the near future. I won't be making changes really, just cleaning it up, and likely splitting up that first chapter into two so the time jump isn't so jarring.
