If I Was Your Girl is a Merlin/Arthur vid by danegen (3:26 min). It won first place in the 2008 Camelot Music Video Awards in the category 'Editing'. The vid uses suggestive editing to make it look like Merlin is lusting after Arthur.

Notes: "I don't know how this happened. I was just sitting there, watching the show, thinking, 'Yep, that's slashy,' and the next thing I know, I'm holding a legal pad, making notes every time Merlin looks at Arthur like he's made of puppies and sunshine. This show is like fangirl catnip.'"[1]

Recs and Reviews

  • "Arthur is hot. Merlin channels Edward Cullen. Lots of phallic imagery. And yet, surprisingly hot."[2]
  • "oh yesss. i never knew this was an adult show... hm, yum. dirty looks & lots of ass shots."[3]
  • "you know, I really--all that is canon? Really? *blows out breath* Yeah. That was good for me. Special note for 1:16 on for that very, very, very special sequence of events. No, really. He watches Arthur that much? And I don't even--with the sword? And the--you know, I don't even know what to do with that. I mean, I know what to do with that, that's why I'm a damned fanfic writer but since QaF, I've had to use a lot more imagination than say, canon events."[4]
