Be the Elizabeth to my Darcy is a Merlin/Arthur vid by Akarai92 (2:25 min). It takes the audio of the 2005 Pride & Prejuice movie trailer, recasts it with Merlin characters and uses great lip-synching to show that the Merlin/Arthur relationship is a perfect fit for this classic Regency romance.

Summary: "...Discovers the one person she cannot stand, is the one man she may not be able to resist. Tell me this quote isn't (with the right pronouns) the anthem of Merlin and Arthur."

Vidder Notes: "Basically, I was watching Pride & Prejudice for the 100th time or something like that, and BAM something striked me. I went and watched the trailer, and a little voice in my head suggested 'Yeah Jules, they totally could be Arthur and Merlin. Except they're not. But you can make them.' So I, without a hint of shame, turned Merlin into a woman and made him ELIZABETH BENNET! And Arthur is DARCY! And Sophia's father is JUDIE DENCH!"
