Review of chapter "Epilogue" from (Recent Donor)drdeth
Great story. I hope you will do another sequel maybe have Dawn and Merlin appear in the charmed universe?
Comments from author:
Glad you liked the story! Hm, I do have the next one in the works though not in the Charmed universe. I'd have to do some serious brushing up on my Charmed knowledge to write that one that's for sure, but it could totally work. I'll keep it in mind, thanks!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from jaycatt
This was a charming, delightfully funny story.

And the epilogue... I like your ending much better than the series finale on the actual show. Even without Dawn, yours builds up more reasonably. Thanks!
Comments from author:
Aw thanks! Yeah, the series' finale was surprisingly well-written (after watching the rest of that season, I hadn't had much hope), but I think it still fell short of what it could have been. I'm incredibly happy to hear you liked my version even without the insert. I just liked the idea of Arthur being surrounded by his knights when he died - which is I believe how he died in the legends too... I could very well be wrong on that though.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from purrfus
Merlin isn't one of my shows, so I managed to miss this until there was another story that crossed with SG that I wanted to read. In a way I glad I didn't find it until now because I was able to read it all at once and not have to wait to find out what happened next!

The story pulled me in and kept me reading.
Comments from author:
Wow, it really makes me happy to hear that, despite Merlin not being one of your shows, you decided to read this anyway in order to read the next one in the series. And that you enjoyed it too!

Great story, keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from dinkscythe
Great story! Every moment felt in-character, yet stayed fairly light and fun. It was great to see things mostly from the Merlin-verse characters' POV, unfamiliar with magic, modern trappings, and their own future. And oh, the ending was a bit of a gut-punch, much more somber and skipping many years forward (seemingly for both verses).

Merlin and Dawn are an intriguing duo. Never thought of it before.
Comments from author:
Thanks! Writing things from the Merlin-verse character's perspectives (ie. mostly Arthur's) was rather fun. I thought the story would better from their side of things, because, especially in season 1, they don't have the BTVS's guys blase attitude of 'oh look, weird shit is happening, guess it must be Tuesday again'. Which, don't get me wrong, I absolutely love them for, but I thought it'd be fun writing from the perspectives of people, who aren't used to dealing with truly bizzare stuff.

I'll take 'gut punch' on the epilogue as a compliment. I mean, it was by no means meant to turn out quite that sombre, but after I'd started writing it and realized what I was writing, I decided I quite liked it. And I plan on having much fun with Merln and Dawn in the future... I think they'll be brilliant together.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from DavidFraser
Good character development, along with well described fight scenes, makes for a good read.

Well done,

Comments from author:
Thank you so much!! Character development and fight scenes making sense are the two things I worry the most about when I write, so your review makes me especially happy. I'm glad you enjoyed the story!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from MistofRainbows
I'm looking forward to seeing where his adventures go next. It's always nice to see a story wrap up and spin off at the same time. It's a nice ending for a warrior king. (none of this dying of old age thing.)
Comments from author:
Arthur, die of old age? Perish the thought. Glad you liked the wrap-up... I decided I wanted the story to end neatly, so that it felt like it had an ending even if Dawn and Merlin are now only starting their adventures. Because, they're different adventures. Or rather, Merlin's are: he's fulfilled his destiny and now he can play. :)

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from MarcusSLazarus
Kind of sucks that they weren't able to change anything about the legend in the end, but the ending still reflected that strange mixture of hope and sorrow that any good passing to Avalon should reflect, and I DEFINITELY look forward to seeing what Merlin and Dawn get up to in later sequels...

'Stargate' springs to mind as a possibility, of course- how would Daniel react to meeting a more wizardly Merlin?-, and 'Harry Potter' is another obvious possibility, but otherwise I'm willing to wait and see what you come up with.

Keep up the great work!
Comments from author:
LOL!!! Okay, so your review made me laugh so hard my roommate called out to see what was so funny! The answer? Well, you see the first additional story I plan will in fact be a crossover with Stargate SG1... honestly hadn't thought THAT would be anyone's first guess. Although, it likely won't go the way you're thinking as I haven't see quite that far into the series. I saw some, but not a lot of Stargate when it was first airing and now I'm rewatching, but am only on season 7 now. I have a basic knowledge of the whole Ori/Merlin, ect bits, but have never seen any of it and probably won't before I get to writing.

Anyway, thanks so much for reviewing. I'm glad you liked the mixture of grief and hope; I was trying very hard to keep it as light as I could without dismissing what was happening callously. It actually ended up much darker than I'd originally planned.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Doodle
Excellent chapter/fic. 1,000/10

Maybe see what mischief they can get up to in Harry Potter and/or Stargate? Or an Alternate Sunnydale?
Comments from author:
Oooh, an alternate Sunnydale sounds interesting... And I really hadn't thought Stargate would've been such an obvious crossover choice for these two shows... Meh. Glad you liked the chapter!! =D

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from ChibiChibi
Oh, what a beautiful ending to a great story! I really had tears in my eyes, when Arthur died, though knowing that he is the once and future king and will be back eventually makes up for it. :) I'm so sad that it's over now, but I'm looking forward to reading about Merlin and Dawn's dimension hoppig experiences :)
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'm happy you liked it. The dimension-hopping will bring this back to its original light-heartedness. =D

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from NutsContract
Oh, I can't wait to see what hi-jinx Dawn and Merlin get into!! This was probably the perfect ending. Not too happy, and not too depressing. And it leaves you wanted more, but not to the point where you want to pull your own hair out. Great job, dude!!
Comments from author:
Lol, thanks! I'm glad the ending worked and that you liked it. And you just know I'm going to have tons of fun writing their hi-jinx!

Review of chapter "Final Encounter" from winchestersgirl
I LOVE this story. It is so well written and your insight into the character's thinking is spot-on.

I really hope that you don't stop this story here. Arthur and Merlin both could do with a chat from an older and wiser Buffy (older from the series).

Merlin would like another magical being with a sacred destiny to talk to, Not to mention the flirty fun Buffy could have with single Arthur.

Please don't stop it here.
Comments from author:
LOL!! Sorry, as you'll see soon enough (I just published the epilogue), I'm afraid neither one of those particular scenarios are likely to happen. Well, there's a possibility with one of them, definitely not the other.

I'm happy you like my character's voices; it's always one of my biggest concerns. Thanks for reviewing!
