Fanvid: Merlin (BBC) | Down the Drain (Merlin/Morgana)  
I was beginning a new Sherlock fanvid when this happened! Perfect song for a fandom I hadn't vid before! And here I was, ripping all the sources and spending the week on this one! (I don't abandon the idea of the Sherlock one, though)

Music : Down the Drain - Lilly Wood & The Prick
Spoilers: Until the end of Series 3.

So Merlin fanvid! Who would have thought it would be a Merlin/Morgana and not a Merlin/Arthur!!! Certainly not me! ^^
When I heard this song on the radio, listening to the lyrics, this is what made me want to vid it: 'I wait for you, wait for you to kill everything I have inside'
I loved them so much this season! All this angst, I couldn't resist it! I don't ship them (I think?!) and never had, but I love how their relationship evolved... And unlike a lot of people, I loved Morgana all bad and evil (even if it was sometimes a bit too much on the smirks, I admit) while I just didn't care for her at all the past seasons, I mean they didn't gave her a real storyline, it was always the same thing over and over, when she had so much potential.

Well for this vid, what I wanted to say is that all of this new evil Morgana is a bit Merlin's fault! I mean, if he told her his secret in the first place, she would have had someone to share it with, she was so lost... and then he poisonned her. Yes, he had to, but still... What I wanted to show here is that whenever Morgana shows some feelings, he's always there to take her down, dragging her, restraining her, basically taking every little things she thought she had, until the last thing, he is the one that sent the fatal blow to Morgause (maybe she'll be revive, we'll see), but that's the last and ultimate thing he could do to hurt her...
(but I'm not justifying the fact that she's THAT evil and I'm still a Merlin girl all the way (<3), I still don't get why she would want to hurt Arthur or Gwen who has always been good and loyal to her, and why she didn't care about killing civilians...!)
I have the feeling that wanting to say too much, I ended up saying nothing... ^^'

So sorry for so much ramblings, congrats if you've read it! This vid really gave me a lot to think! (and maybe we're a bit late and I shall go to sleep!)

So here it is, I hope you will like it!
I pretty much followed the lyrics, which are below. ;)

And I wanted some magical fight between these 2 at the end of the season, I hope next one will bring us that! :D

Break me off, tie me down, tear me down
Make me feel like a little dog
Why don't you rape me now, hit me now
Make me feel like I'm nothing at all

I wait for you, wait for you to kill everything I have inside
Destroy everything I have inside
You and me,
We're a waste, we're a waste, we're a waste
And we're going down the drain, down the drain, down the drain
We're a waste, we're just a waste, we're just a waste
And we're going down the drain

This is wonderful! It's awesome to see a video that's Morgana's perspective about Merlin. Usually it's the other way around, focusing on how evil she is & how Merlin has to deal with that, but I really loved seeing how, from her perspective, Merlin has wronged her so badly and she feels really justified in her hatred of him -- and you sorta can't blame her.

Thank you very much for your lovely comment! I'm glad you got it the same way I felt it! :)
In the end, when I finished the vid I kinda felt sorry for her, it could have been so different with Merlin's help...
It doesn't justify th way she treat everyone else though...!
