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

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
