Merlin — Work — (Merlin/Arthur, feat. Gwen/Lancelot)



This is a fanmade video using clips from the BBC’s Merlin and the source material doesn’t belong to me (audio or visual). I made it for fun and I hope you enjoy it but I’m not benefiting from this whatsoever apart from intellectually.

Summary/Thinky-Thoughts: The first two-thirds or so of the video is somewhat from Merlin’s perspective and the last bit is from Arthur’s. The clips are almost chronological and then the latter half is almost inverse. It’s a sort of experiment having to do with the whole book end ~two sides of the same coin~ aspect of Arthur and Merlin’s relationship. Basically, I was just really impressed when midnightx10’s fanmix applied this song to them. Somehow the context made the song more meaningful, rather than contrived in its application and so I just needed to make a video of it. Also, exam-time stress relief creativity.

I suppose this is just meant to be a look at Merlin and Arthur’s relationship with one another, both from positive and somewhat negative sides of it. The way in which they know one another like the back of their hands in some ways, but the other ways in which Arthur doesn’t know Merlin at all. Merlin’s devotion and Arthur’s begrudging return of the same. Also, I just multiship like crazy and it seemed somehow appropriate to give a somewhat positive spin on Gwen/Lancelot when I did in the video because of the way in which it related back to Merlin’s thoughts on the matter, I think. I understand that Gwen is quite possibly the most common berserker button for a lot of people’s dislike in this fandom, but I love all of them, so comments are welcome and encouraged but please be nice about everyone—I’d appreciate it. 🙂

Pairing: Merlin/Arthur, a bit of Gwen/Lancelot and brief Merlin/Freya

Lyrics:

If you only once would let me
Only just one time
Then be happy with the consequence
With whatever’s gonna happen tonight

Don’t think we’re not serious
When’s it ever not?
The love we make
Is give and it’s take
I’m game to play along

All I can say
I shouldn’t say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time

All the best DJs are saving
The slowest song for last
When the dance is through
It’s me and you
Come on, would it really be so bad?

The things we think might be the same
But I won’t fight for more
It’s just not me to wear it on my sleeve
Count on that, for sure

All I can say
I shouldn’t say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time

You wanna take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time
We still have time

Can’t say I was never wrong
But some blame rests on you
Work and play
They’re never okay
To mix the way we do

All I can say
I shouldn’t say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time

You wanna take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time
We still have time
