Legacy of Salazar

After hearing of the Dark Lord’s survival during the Quirrell Case, Lucius fears that he will be marked a traitor if he does nothing to help his master to return to power. He slips Tom Riddle’s Diary to Ginny Weasley, and the terror begins. Merlin begins to wonder if he is going insane, students have been petrified, and Malfoy is torn between loyalty to his father or the only real friend he has.

Praise for Legacy of Salazar

I officially blame you, Author, for the fact that I was up ’till two-thirty in the morning. Because I started reading the first installment at a reasonable hour. And then I couldn’t stop.

I love Slytherin Merlin. It really disappointed me the way Rowling kept saying that people in Slytherin weren’t bad… and then not making any good ones. The Big Snape Reveal does not count! Ambition is not an evil thing.

I like that he still has problems coughing up his secrets.
And I can’t get the image of tiny, tiny Merlin exploding through Snape’s office door, huffing a frustrated breath at him and then storming back out while Snape blinks in stunned silence.

This is honestly one of the best fanfics that I have read to date. The way that you combined Merlin and Harry Potter is absolutely beautiful. The characteristics are spot on and I simply love the way you made Snape. I cannot wait for an update and to see what else you bring to the story. Please update soon!


Ok, so I’m obsessed with your story. Every time I see an update I end going back to the beginning to reread everything. Everything from the characterizations to the way you are moving the story along with Merlin is just amazing. Waiting for updates is such a drag, but every time I read the chapter I just think about how worth it the wait actually was.
I really do love this, and I am looking forward to Lockheart’s appearance. Merlin is going to make me laugh so hard.


I love this story. Each time I read a new chapter, it makes me want to go back to the very beginning and re-read the whole thing! Can’t wait to read the next one!


Wow! This is such an amazing story! You are a really talented writer and I get so excited when I see an update on this.

I love Merlin’s relationship with everyone and I don’t think there is a single person who is out of character (I love love Merlin and Snape’s relationship). I mean Draco is a bit different from cannon obviously but it feels so natural how he’s become like this with his friendship with Merlin, and it’s great how you don’t just dismiss all the pressures on him and say ‘he’s good now- end of’. This is one of my favorite Harry Potter fanfics and definitely my favorite Merlin one.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us x


I’ve been wondering for a while what I would sell my soul for, I debated magic, wings, a new Elvis Presley album, a cure for cancer. But the. I figured, what I really need is DAILY FREAKING UPDATES FROM THIS FANFICTION ALREADY!
