Sweet Syllic,

Do you know what impresses me greatly in this fic? Aside from the ten or twelve other things I've mentioned thus far?

You are managing both to discuss the high implications of court politics -- the meanings behind the delicate, tedious maneuvering and the large scale implications of policy -- and to give it a human cost. The impact of Ector's grief, which is evident to everyone in the room and which they'd likely investigate further if they hadn't their own troubles and the power of Gwen's simple words (hello Guinevere -- now there is a queen to love and one to express her opinions without sounding motherly or condescending but motivating through the force of her faith) are extraordinary. This is no mean feat.

I wonder about syncretism in the world in which these men and women live: to what degree would sorcery not only go underground as it seems it did but also how might men and women disguise magical beliefs in new guises? Sorry, thinking ahead of myself...

As before, I am struck by the degree to which Arthur and Merlin do know each other and the degree to which they don't.
