10,000 Nights of Thunder is a Merlin/Arthur vid by mamoru22 (2:39 min). It was one of the first Merlin slash vids and widely linked as a recruiter vid for the fandom and the show. The vid was made and posted between episode four and five, using only clips from the first four episodes, and it was a 2008 Camelot Music Video Awards nominee in the category 'Pairing: Merlin/Arthur'.

Notes: "And what can I say? It's not a deep thinky video. It's just me going: Merlin! Arthur! Love! Whee!"[1]


  • "Wow... the slashiness just leaps off the screen. I can almost picture the fanfic in my head from the visual of their interactions and expressions. I shall have to check out this show."[2]
  • "OMFG! That vid is awesome. This is like torture. I NEED to see this show. I will buy the dvds sight unseen!!!! Looks like Arthur is jock and Merlin is geeky guy. Reminds me a bit about the excitement I felt for Smallville with Lex much younger than traditionally portrayed. I was just GUH! looking at Arthur fighting that dragon? OMG. At first when I saw pics of Merlin, I was thinking that he was not so attractive. Either he has grown on me or watching your vid with him in action he is just not so ugly after all. I just know this is an awesome show. And the vid if fabulouso!!!! YOu rule!"[3]
