A Revelation In The Light Of Day, a Merlin fanmix  

Fandom: Merlin
Subject: Merlin and Arthur (Romance/Bromance), Magic Reveal
Title: A Revelation In The Light Of Day
Notes: This is basically my first fanmix/art in this fandom. I kind of became fascinated by Merlin and Arthur's relationship and what a magic reveal would do to both of them, so the songs in this fanmix mainly deal with their feelings about Merlin's secret. Each song represents a different magic reveal, their different possible reactions. Some of the songs are more Merlin or Arthur centric but others can fit them both.
I haven't used Photoshop for a very long time (and I've just noticed I haven't posted anything here since 2009 o.O XD) so the covers aren't really fantastic. I don't even know how they ended up so pink, haha. I hope you will like them anyway :)

a revelation in the light of day;

{001} IRIS | The Goo Goo Dolls |
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

{002} NO LIGHT NO LIGHT | Florence + The Machine |
But would you leave me
If I told you what I've done
And would you leave me
If I told you what I've become

{003} HOW TO SAVE A LIFE | The Fray |
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

{004} ILLUMINATED (live version) | Hurts |
Suddenly my eyes are open
Everything comes into focus
We are all illuminated
Lights are shining on our faces, blinding

{005} ENDLESS SONG (symphony orchestra version) | AaRON |
All your smiles, all is fake
Let me come in, I feel sick
Gimme your arm

{006} SNUFF | Slipknot |
I only wish you weren't my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint...

{007} OPEN YOUR EYES | Snow Patrol |
The anger swells in my guts
And I won't feel these slices and cuts
I want so much to open your eyes
'Cause I need you to look into mine

{008} A MODERN MYTH | 30 Seconds to Mars |
To buy the truth
And sell a lie
The last mistake before you die

{009} DOWN AND OUT | Tantric |
And though I'm used to have you here
It does not change the man I was
When you found me and there was no one else around me
Just turn the page and watch me grow

{010} HURRICANE 2.0 | 30 Seconds to Mars feat Kanye West |
No matter how we try, it's too much history
Too many bad notes playing in our symphony
So let it breathe, let it fly, let it go
Let it fall, let it crash, burn slow

{011} THE SCIENTIST | Coldplay |
Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you

{012} SO FAR AWAY | Staind |
Now that we're here, it's so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive, and I'm not ashamed
To be the person that I am today

These are lovely especially the pic of Merlin lying in the plants, that was such a sad picture but so beautiful.

Wow, I usually don't bother to look at fanmixes, but your graphics caught my eye. They are absolutely stunning! I think I'll snag an icon or two, (I'll credit you, of course).

Thanks so much!

The mix looks wonderful and the art is gorgeous! Definitely snagging a couple of the icons (will credit) and can't wait to hear a couple of these songs that I'm not familiar with. Thanks for sharing!

I can't stop staring at your icon btw, haha. I think this moment is priceless. I love Merlin's happy face and Arthur's disgruntled one behind him XD

I don't normally go for fanmixs, but yours pulled me in with the beautiful art, the topic and the song choice. I know a few of the songs and the first and last I had already thought about Merlin when I listened to them of recent times. I downloaded this yesterday and listened to it a few times today and am totally loving it.
I'm planning on writing a magic reveal fic soon and I think this will sooo be the music I'll be listening to while writing it. Thanks for putting this together *hugs*

P.S. Is there supposed to be a large gap of silence in 'A Modern Myth'?

Awww, I'm glad you love this fanmix ♥
And I would love very much to read your magic reveal fic when you publish it! I'm really craving some post-season 4 reveal fic right now, it must be why I made this fanmix, haha!
(I really hope there will be a magic reveal at the beginning of season 5!)

About the song 'A Modern Myth', the artist added a hidden track at the end so it's why there is such a large gap of silence in the song ^^

Thank you so much for your comment <3

I'll gladly link you when I post it, if you'd like. I'm planning it as part of a series I've been writing for the prompts over on camelot_drabble but I might do it in the same 'verse but not for a prompt and more of a stand alone, depending. It's likely to be a few weeks off yet anyway.
I've been wanting to write one for a while and before the show does theirs so my mind isn't warped by the canon version of events. I'm not sure how much longer they can go without a reveal, but I'm kinda dreading it as well.

Ah, hidden track, kool :)

You're welcome *hugs*

P.S. I'm snagging all the icons and the wallpaper. Will credit

Beautiful piece of art! Even Gawaine agreed :D

I don't have problem with pink, i even think the pastel color gives the right nuance. I get the idea that they're think about each other at the moment.

O i cannot describe how i love all the pictures. You did HUGE, at least for me <3

I truly wait for the moment where Merlin's secret reveals where it could wreck drama, which i fear only matter in fans'mind D:

And could you fix the download link? I don't know is it my ISP which is stupid or simply the link is broken. But i've tried several times with no good D:

Thank you for your attention.

Meanwhile i can look into the picture and daydreaming :))

Wow, your comment really floored me, thank you very much <3
I'm really glad you like the pictures so much!

Yes, I think there's going to be a lot of angst when Merlin's secret will finally be revealed. I'm quite nervous about Arthur's possible reaction to Merlin's magic but at the same time, I truly hope for a magic reveal in season 5. And added to all the drama already going on in this season (I don't know if you read the spoilers), it will be EPIC.

The alternative link is still working, I think here. I'll try to reuoplad it on mediafire later because my internet connection is pretty bad right now :/

Again, thank you so much for your comment, it truly made my day :D
halfmoon_smilehalfmoon_smile on June 12th, 2012 06:28 pm (UTC)
It really deserve appraisal! :-*

I don't know what's going on because i have tried the link you gave numerous times, from 2 different ISP, still not working X( But since i just realized the link is directed to 4shared i manage to hunt it down directly from there :D now i'm listening to it.

Great mix is great! YEY!!"\( ^o^ )/" Thanks for sharing it. Level of angst and tension just made me want to rummage magicreveal fics all over the fandom D: I might just read few, but every author gives insightful thing.

If there's spoiler for when Merlin's magic will reveal, i don't know yet! But i'm on the same boat as you! Lovely their interaction is, but i want Arthur to be twist and hear nothing obstinately from each of his friend(add Gwen here), lol.

I think i've just blabbed too much, but really, Merlin's magic reveal is sensitive case for me :D so thanks again!
