catch me a catch Reviews
I don't know how I feel about this one. I know that Elena got on my last fucking nerve.Her self sacrificing bullshit and Arthur's self sacrificing bullshit just took too much time. The longing between both couples and uncouples was just so very unnecessary.The love was just so lovely and flowy and sugary sweet. Even a bit too much for me.I did enjoy the story it just was a bit too over the top for me.
MerthurCute. But expected. And a bit annoying, you know this part where everyone is soooo amazing and so perfect for each other but no. They prefer not.Light and sweet anyway 😊🌪❤️🌪😊
Interesting story. I suppose I'd not paid much attention and so hadn't noticed that this is labeled both m/f and m/m. So the m/f relationship was just a delightful bonus.Elena and Arthur's families have been friends since they were little, and they're now being pressured by their fathers to get married. Elena's willing, if only to please her father, but worried Arthur's not as up for it so she comes to Merlin--a magical matchmaker--for help.Because of this, Merlin meets Arthur and Elena meets Merlin's food-mooching shirtless neighbor Gawain. Stubbornness and adorableness ensue with some lovely angst along the way. I was glad that the m/f relationship wasn't as central as the m/m, especially since I wasn't anticipating the lady parts, but getting to have two lovely HEA's for the price of one was delightful.Favorite Quotes:"For a matchmaker, you're awfully curmudgeony.""I should have just asked for directions, or turned my sat nav on but I bloody hate that thing and the way it orders you about all condescending just because it knows where it is."He knew there would be a hundred things they'd argue about, but a thousand more that they'd agree on down to their cores. And all Merlin wanted to do in that moment was press his face into Arthur's neck and breathe in all of those hundred, thousand, million things."You know, there's something incredibly naively innocent and sweet about what Merlin does, and that there are people that believe and hope in love and magic enough to allow him to help them.""Lying here beside you," Merlin's voice broke their quiet, "not saying anything at all is the closest to home I've ever felt."
Lovely.And this is in spite of the fact that for a while there, "Elena’s being stupid, Arthur’s being stupid, I’m being stupid, it’s one big, fat stupid extravaganza.” (This being Merlin's words).
This is the second story I have read by giselleslash. I loved this short story.
