A / N: I recently went to Compiegne with my mother and we also went to Pierrefonds and visited the castle. It was not my first time there - I went to see the cast filming the last block series 3 with friend in 2010. I felt really emotional and I don't know, when I got back from our trip, I watched all episodes left in my "rewatch merlin" list (series 4 and 5) and it all hit me pretty hard again... So, for those who know me, vidding is my way to cope with, what we fangirls call "feels" and thus this video happened.
Sorry, it's not really cheerful...
I hope you'll still enjoy watching.
The video is more focused on Merlin and what he felt after losing Arthur. There is a particular moment in the song when it says "nothing can bring me peace, I've lost everything." that is just so fitting for him I think. Yes, somehow Kilgharrah tells Merlin that everything he's dreamed of has come to pass but I doubt that when Merlin thought of this bright future that it would be without Arthur. Arthur also tells him that peace has been brought to Albion at last but at what cost...
A: Merlin, if I die, please...
M: You're bleeding.
A: That's alright, I thought I was dying.
M: It didn't bite you, it didn't.
A: No man is worth your tears.
M: Stay with me
M: I can't lose him! He's my friend!
M: You're not going to say goodbye.
A: You're not going to start crying on me, are you?
M: No, just... good luck.
A: With all your magic Merlin, you can't save my life.
M: I can, I'm not going to lose you.
A: You called me friend.
M: That was my mistake.
M: It's my destiny as it has been since the day we met.
A: You brought peace at last.
M: I failed.
K: No, young warlock, for all that you've dreamt of building has come to pass.
A: I thought we lost you!
A: Just, just...just hold me, please.
Thank you for watching.
