Reach out and touch me is a Merlin/Arthur vid by Solanyxe (2:47 min). The vid was widely recced in Merlin fandom and it has more than 52,000 views on YouTube (as of August 2010). If there is a vidding term for taking harmless material and turning it into an adult rated PWP, this vid fits it perfectly.

Warning: Metaphorical shooting of unicorns in a homoerotic context (that covers it, more or less)

Summary: Arthur is tired of feeling so 'untouched,' and now he's saying it loud and clear: "Reach out and touch me." Let's hope Merlin is smart enough to get the message.

Vidder Notes: "Many videos seem absolutely outrageous while I'm making them (deserving a solid 'R' in my mind), and by the time I've finished with the video, I don't know, they all seem almost tame... Must be the effect of watching and cutting those clips over and over. All right, this one is not so 'tame'."[1]

  • "Um. Okay. Hands up. Who watched this five times convinced you saw them mid coitus? Don't be shy. I know it's there. they really spend that much time writhing sweatily in their beds? Yeah." (seperis)[2]
