Rheged is an interesting fanfiction that, despite it being M/M, still feels very much like the Camelot we all know and love. However, I find the greatest flaw in the story being the main character: Merlin. The story is pretty much the circular thoughts of Merlin in his stubborn and self denial in the circumstances that surrounds him. He was just a very unlikeable character. I think what I disliked most was his blatant denials and lies he would tell others to make it seem like something wasn't his fault, when he knows good and well he had a good hand in the decisions. What took me most by surprise was the fact that the relationship was not exclusive. Meaning it wasn't just Merlin and Arthur, which was a big turn off for me.
