Chapter: Falco Columbarius Aesalon

Awesome story! I really enjoyed it :) Only one little nitpick: it was Cesarean, Julius Caesar's son by Cleopatra, who was delivered by cutting of the stomach, not Julius Caesar himself. Very good story though :)

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
The story of how the Caesars got their name is still being argued. As caesus means cut, and caesaries means full head of hair, we'll probably never know, so I simply went with one story over another. The details about Gefrin and Bernicia are correct.

Chapter: Falco Columbarius Aesalon

Oh, wow. I am blown away by this. I actually googled Falco Aesalon on encountering the chapter title, thinking it sounded familiar, and ran into both the wizard and the bird, so I was both excited by that and excited to see the way that tied into the story. And what a story! The sense of time and place in this fic was simply wonderful, and I loved the way all the elements led to Merlin - while still telling a story of their own. I have to say, I was excited reading the summary, and am even more excited that it more than lived up to such an interesting premise.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and the nomination.
When I googled the name, my first thought was: did JKR write the famous wizard cards? (According to the Lexicon, she did.) If so, then she knew axactly what she was doing when she named him. This story was a logical (to me, at least) consequence.
The choice of settings was made easy by my decision to set the story around 500AD, and the fact that I've visited both Gefrin and the Coliseum, the Coliseum most recently (which is wrong, as Gefrin is just up the road). I always knew that my interest in local history would come in useful one day.

:) A very creative bit of storytelling. I think the link between Falco Asalon and Merlin is in no way random. :)

Author's Response: Thanks, that is exactly what I thought when I spotted it. -N-

Brilliant story! First class!
Reminds me of Mary Stewart and Rosemary Sutcliffe and I can't praise higher than that.

Author's Response: Thank you. It's a long time since I read Mary Stewart, but something must have stuck with me. -N-
