Ho-lee shit. At first I was kinda bummed that it was written in present tense and then I got over that FAST because hot damn, does it work in this situation. This was smokin'. The build up of tension was perfect, the reveal of the backstory at the end was perfect timing. Apparently I like to use the word perfect a lot when describing your fics. Then, just as now, it's wholly appropriate!

Thanks hon! I didn't know you didn't like stuff written in past tense? Well it works sometimes doesn't it? At least some authors I've read do a smashing job of it. I'm glad you liked it in this one too :) Thank you so so much for your lovely feedback!! *hugs*

I've been ranting about the proliferation of present tense fics in Merlin on my LJ lately. I don't mind them occasionally (such as in yours), but when every other fic in a fandom is written that way it drives me nuts, lol.

Ah, I've been wanting to get into Merlin for sometime now but there's just too many WIPs glaring at me and I really should make the wise choice and finish those first! *sighs* I'm sure you're also narrowing your eyes at me right about now ;)

I know what you mean about certain things just bugging the hell of you when you're reading. What I really can't ever get into is the inclusion of female OCs romantically involved with any of the characters... that's just too much of an author included in the story and umm... no thanks heh.
