kissing the witch by blushingsigh (teen)

Fandom Category: Merlin
Pairing: Morgana/Merlin, Morgana/Arthur, Arthur/Gwen
Fic Title: kissing the witch
Author: blushingsigh
Link: http://blushingsigh.livejournal.com/50859.html?mode=reply
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; brief mention of attempted rape, the character death of an original character and general spoilers of series 1
Genre: Character Study, Future fic, Drama
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I've always been interested in fics which show how Morgana transforms from the king's ward to the (in)famous, Morgan Le Fay and this fic shows Morgana's evolution. I like how the author characterized Morgana as someone who is vulnerable on the inside but also as someone who is very emotionally strong and adaptable. The story shows what makes her happy and what makes her tick. The fic portrays Morgana's relationships with the men in 'Merlin' and two female characters (namely Gwen and an original character who becomes her mentor) and how everyone in their own way makes her more inclined to pursue her destiny.
