  1. Thanks for lots of reading for a weekend! (Or a month…) 😀

    I just wanted to say that when you talk about Merlin being too tiny to be the one to save Arthur from physical dangers, all I see is season 5 Merlin and that one wasn’t tiny at all. 😀 So I guess it really depends on which kind of Merlin you see.

    To be honest, what totally broke me and pretty much changed how I write Merlin in most of my fics is The Living and the Dead. Ever since I laid my eyes on half-naked, buff, beardy, straight-backed, confident Nathan, my Merlins are buff, confident, and dominant. 😀
