    1. Great Arthur/Merlin fanfiction with a dark twisty feel and surprisingly good worldbuilding. Set in modern times, Uther Pendragon (Arthur's father and a political leader) has banned magic and forced all magicians and their sympathisers into terrible prisons. But then his own son Arthur is framed for a magical crime and sentenced to imprisonment in the dreaded Arcane Asylum. His rough treatment is stopped when a young wizard named Merlin decides to protect him. They set off on a quest to bring pea [...]

    2. Stunningly complex and heartfelt.It's undeniably flawed - instalove is alive and kicking, and the last 30(ish)% is a little rushed and a little I hesitate to use the word half-assed, because I feel like it's gonna diminish the value of all the rest in the eyes of whoever's reading this, but yeah, kinda half-assed.But the first two thirds of this story are fucking glorious, well thought out, beautifully written, clever and hard-hitting. I was so thoroughly engrossed I could not stop reading until [...]

    3. My very first Merthur fanfic which has more than a couple of pages :)The worldbuilding was great, the idea interesting and I was captured by the story very fast. Of course, there are "buts"Like many people have already mentioned, the beggining (and the first half) was very good, but since the story is very long (too long) it started to drag a little. The insta-love didn't work for me (As far as I know, I'm not the only one with this impression!) and all those flashbacks started to annoy me at so [...]

    4. This was wonderfully original. Fascinating modern AU in which anyone suspected of having magic is imprisoned in a special facility.My favorite thing was how true to themselves Merlin and Arthur were even in this dark and violent world. They were both wonderfully selfless and heroic and idealistic, and it was fascinating to see their world through their eyes.Some Favorite Quotes:but he couldn't have really expected his first day of prison not to be a bad hair day.he was now officially a personal [...]

    5. 4,25After reading a LOT of Arthur/Merlin fanfiction, I got just a bit bored. There are really some very good stories, but I also read many ordinary ones that left me quite disappointed. But: GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! This is a good one. It's suspenseful, the worldbuilding is fantastic here and the development of the relationship between Merlin and Arthur is just perfect. Also: the prison setting and the sex with magic is kind of hot. And the story is long and detailed, which is a big plus for me.Arca [...]

    6. More a 3 stars maybe because half way it started to drag a bit and there were too many flashbacks that broke up the flow, but the setting and the worldbuilding was really good.

    7. I ended up rating this higher because the beginning was so strong. Later parts seemed to be standard fanfic fare.
