A/N: This basically happened in the course of one evening/night and then I spent a week playing around with the scenes because some places didn't quite work and then I wasted another 2 weeks because I couldn't make a banner for the vid. And tonight lovely and awesome arizoona made it for me! Absolutely amazing, gorgeous banner as if taken right out of my head!

Anyway. Back to the story. The song isn't an obvious music choice for me, but when I first heard it I really liked the lyrics and then somehow it grew and then there was this AU story where Arthur was a modern day musician by day and a Fight club style fighter by night. Basically it's a mix up of the characters he played in his different projects. While Merlin is pretty much like his character from Parked - a troubled young man who made quite a few wrong choices in life and who - obviously - doesn't remember anything about his previous life, unlike Arthur.

They meet by chance in the street and then - the plot thickens! - Arthur finds Merlin in the street, beaten and hurt and well, then he dies. Again.

Oh and yes, Merlin did tell Arthur about his magic. I mean, I thought, why Arthur has to die every single time? So I decided to explore another twist - what if Merlin was the one who died and Arthur - who waited for him quite a few years? And then, just when it seemed like they found each other again Merlin just had to go and get himself killed. Everything that's happened in between is left to your own interpretation/imagination. I know, my story outlining skills are for shit, but hey! This is what you get.

Also, I apologize for crappy quality this time. The quality of the original sources and footage was, well, crap to put it mildly, so, here.

There is a ghost
Deep in my throat
Shoving it down
Speak and you choke
Every fire
Sharpens the flood
Throbbing and wild
Stained in blood…

And each little lie
Making mountains
Mountains I climb
Wasting my time
Wasting my time
Feeding the fire
Teasing the lies
With dirt in my eyes…

Ohh dirt in my eyes

Pissed it away
The heroes are gone
Dirt in their sheets
Rum on their tongues
Somewhere between
Dirty and clean
Water and smoke
Laugh and you choke…

Ohh dirt in my eyes

There is a ghost
Deep in my throat
Shoving it down
Speak and you choke
Somewhere between
Dirty and clean
The truth and the lie
With dirt in my eyes…

Ohh dirt in my eyes

создатели "Мерлина" просто обязаны снять полнометражное тв продолжение. И они просто обязаны взять тебя в команду!)))
Прекрасное видео. Спасибо.
