  • The wonderful, amazing, talented and lovely sparksflyout made the story poster for me. I am entirely enamoured and in love with it. It's just beautiful--I cannot swoon over it enough!
  • I was inspired to write this story after reading the miraculous Easy There AU fic written by the equally amazing syllic. That being said, this work has absolutely no parallels to that story, but touched me deeply and fueled my writing fires. Go read it, now!
  • The lovely sparksflyout made a fantastic fan video with the song "I'd Come For You" by Nickelback that helped set the mood for Part One.
  • Another amazing fan video, this time by the wonderful katelynnlynn using the song "Invisible" by Taylor Swift, which was a mood enhancer for Part Two.
  • A wonderful fanmix was created by orangelusik, which provided much of the music for Part Three.
  • Part Five was the important turning point between Merlin and Arthur and I found myself repeatedly listening to "Everything" by Lifehouse. This fan video by ashdoode gave me the strength I needed to keep writing through their pain.
