Bad Romance is a Merlin/Arthur vid by Nuarity. It's a fun PWP where Merlin and Arthur have a lot of sex, thanks to all the season two footage with sweaty Merlin and Arthur and scenes with a half-naked Arthur in bed. The vid recontextualizes scenes of Arthur romancing Lady Vivian to make it appear that he is pursuing Merlin and it offhandedly includes a convincing kissing manip that seems very much at home in the context of the vid.
Length: 02:32 | Size: 55,0 MB (wmv, download link). The YouTube version has ~13,800 views and more than 230 comments, most of them very enthusiastic about the editing and the manip.
- "This is very good - the kiss is brilliantly done, and I laughed SO MUCH at Arthur demonstrating the, er, size of something to a very disbelieving look from Merlin."
- "The little sequence around 1:40 was pure genius. Incredibly smooth manips. Loved it!" (Cheeyuu, Youtube)
- "Your editing is absolutely superb and it made me laugh at various times. And the kiss! Well, suffice it to say, wow -- that's quite an achievement!"
- "seriously...give me a second to compose my thoughts... 1. I had no idea they had such a kinky love life..they even put each other in jail. 2. I laughed at the chicken...it was random... 3. I never knew a chicken would make me think of so many sexual innuendos. 4. Your editing kicks ass." (Sarcastic07, YouTube)
- "No slash fanvid has ever made me laugh so much! This was just straight up entertaining, and hot, and awesome." (josshouse, YouTube)
- "Is that really Merlin and Arthur Kissing?" (egrant8283, YouTube)
