Recs and Reviews
- "After Merlin throws Excalibur into the lake. Mind-reading, magic-sharing, two-sides-of-the-same-coin metaphors, just like the best Arthur/Merlin should be. The magic reared and bucked in his hand, the sword vibrated with revulsion, but all Uther seemed to feel was the slight imbalance in its weight, the slight hesitation as it cut through the air. Excalibur screamed as it slashed and cut at an invisible enemy, and Merlin could hear every single note as if it was uttered by his own heart."
- From a merlin_finders search: "The first fic has Arthur and Merlin suddenly starting to hear each other's thoughts, and they have a lot of trouble trying to check their thoughts in each other's company while trying to figure out how to stop the curse."
