Vidlet: The Book Of Love [Merlin]

This isn't what it looks like. I can't have just vidded Merlin, that would be ridiculous and display a total failure to prioritise anything in my life.

... dammit.

The Book Of Love
edited by: [livejournal.com profile] such_heights
fandom: Merlin
pairing: Morgana/Gwen
spoilers: through 1x10
music: 'The Book Of Love' by The Magnetic Fields
length: 1:33
summary: The book of love is long and boring, but I love it when you read to me.

The book of love is long and boring,
No one can lift the damn thing.
It's full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing.

But I,
I love it when you read to me and you,
You can read me anything

The book of love is long and boring,
And written very long ago.
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes,
And things we're all too young to know.

But I,
I love it when you give me things and you,
You ought to give me wedding rings.

This is lovely! I love what you've done with the limited source. The use of swordfighting for dancing is inspired, and the quiet content feeling at the end is wonderful.

Are you familiar with Rose Polenzani's cover version (http://www.rosepolenzani.com/category/exclusive-mp3s/)? Added benefit of female vocalist. :)

Oh my, this is SO ADORABLE. And so pretty! Plus, bonus points for the killer combination of Merlin femslash and the Magnetic Fields -- man, it's like you made the vid just for me.

That's so sweet! And, huh, Merlin DOES look like an interesting show.

Hee. Oh Amy.

I think I am going to wait to watch this until my sister arrives home from uni and we start watching Merlin, but I shall be looking forward to it very much. -draws hearts about The Magnetic Fields-

Girls in love! Don't think I fully appreciated (this is from a tv show?), but I enjoyed! M.

This vid has more of Merlin in it than I have yet watched, but I couldn't resist because I am made so happy by Gwen and Morgana and I love this song. So my main reaction is 'wow, I can't wait to watch the rest of the show!' But I also loved the way you put the vid together, the way it traces the classic girls-kissing-on-tv trope of kissing to practice for boys and then throws the boys away. And 'things we're all too young to know' gave me a delightful wee shiver to all the darkness of Arthurian legend drama that the series is surely going to ignore completely. :)

Oh, this was lovely.

What a winsome little video! I adore this. ♥

Oh wow, this is gorgeous. It really packs a lot into a short time.

Possibly this will also be fodder in the war between myself and my friend who refuses to watch the show unless I can be more convincing about the Gwen/Morgana. :D

Not familiar with Merlin really, but I love the Magnetic Fields and have been thinking of making a Torchwood (Jack/Ianto) video to this song for ages, so I had to look at this. Very nice and wasn't expecting the female pairing as the other vids I've seen for Merlin were the boys. Yeah, and ummm, this makes me want to see the show even more now.
