That was utterly brilliant. Merlin only needing Arthur's favor to stand against any one else, and the obvious disapproval of the other advisors is just amazing.
Plus, all the other little details you threw in just brought everything together fantastically. Guh. Fantastic.

That was a bit heartbreaking. It was real, and good, and very well written. It's quite sad. I would wish for Merlin to ever be innocent and Arthur to be happy instead of being his father. Still, given a world where neither is possible, you've still kept love in there.
One thing I'd have liked expanded would be the allusions to funeral pyres and the woman Merlin couldn't save. Was it Gwen? Morgana? What happened? What exactly was it that Merlin was risking his life for this time? If this was just a moment-in-time fic then ignore this suggestion, but if you've considered at all the possibility of writing in any of this backstory, I for one would be interested to read it.
