Both Merlin and Arthur have feelings for each other, but won’t admit to them. Frustrated Merlin even goes to the Great Dragon to ask his advice. The coldness between them grows, as Arthur doesn’t want to talk about it and prefers to deny the whole thing. Because of it they are both miserable and feel alone. At night in their beds they both think about the situation and know they can’t go on like this, living a lie. They both take a step towards each other, but the fear Arthur is feeling, lets him turn Merlin down, who then leaves. When he returns Arthur apologizes. At the same time Merlin has to fulfill his destiny and save Arthur, but he gets nothing in return. Merlin still can’t understand why Arthur won’t give in to his feelings. The tension between them grows and finally it is Arthur who seeks out Merlin, ready to give in to what they’re both feeling. The morning after Merlin is gleeful, Arthur still has to adapt. But they’re happy together and it seems even Uther approves.

This was inspired the lovely SPN fanvid of absrip

Ohh dank dir! :-)

I liked the way you cut it and the closeups of the boys. I thought you did a really good job on having the music match what was going onscreen and I could follow the storyline easily.

Well done.

Thanks so much! I'm not much of an effects person, but I do try to match the scenes with the plot and the lyrics of the song.
I'm really glad it's appreciated :-)

LOVED the video. I had never heard this song before and it worked wonderfully for the story you were telling. I liked the twist at the end with Uther smiling in pleasure. Awesome job!

Thanks so much! It really seems like this song is all too well know, though it really is beautiful.
And I'm glad you liked the end....*grinning like Uther now*

was ein wunderschöner song, und vor allem das Ende, dass uther seinen Segen gibt, ist klasse :D
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Arthur Smirkswiccaqueen on April 26th, 2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
Das Ende war eigenlich gar nicht so geplant! Wollte nur die Umarmungszene und dann is mir beim anschauen gekommen was Uther da denken könnte...
Finds tolls wenn es dir so gefällt :-)

You think? SQUEEE!!! :-D

I guess it's just that I've seen it like a million times already and see wll the little things that aren't perfect, I can't really appreciate that much.

But reading all the lovely comments makes the whole thing worth its while :-)
