Recs and Reviews
- "Everything, the sweetness of Arthur, the fact that he clearly misses having Merlin for himself all the time, Merlin with scruff (because seriously it just made the image of Colin doing Shakespeare flood in my mind) and just the way you write it, how Arthur is not jelaous, no of course never jealous but just royally dismayed and just...this, really. My fav: Arthur wondered if, in centuries to come, historical annals would pin his legacy down to just four simple words: King Arthur -- totally deranged. He'd have to make sure he was extra nice to Geoffrey from now on for additional insurance that future generations wouldn't look back on him in mocking hilarity."
- "It's absolutely hilarious, Arthur's voice and thoughts and random plans for what he's going to do to everyone else who ever looks at Merlin, and his black-hole mass denial, and the poetry and the lutes and the WOODLAND CREATURES OH GOD I WILL NEVER STOP LAUGHING. So it's hilarious, yeah, except it's also completely fucking ADORABLE because Arthur's a moron but he's so sweet and dumb and pining and exactly how I like him, and Merlin being all worried and not-so-secretly insecure when he thinks it's the spell, and gah, it's just awesome."
- "This story is truly priceless. It's a long fic that had me laughing and cheering and basically melting into a pool of happy fangirl goo."
- "I ADMIT. I love the whole love-potion-gone-wrong trope in every fandom. And this is extra well done! Arthur's inner monologue had me howling with LOLs."
