VID: Night At The Opera [Merlin]

Night At The Opera
edited by: such_heights
fandom: Merlin
characters: ensemble
music: Queen
spoilers: through 1x13
summary: Camelot: the rock opera. Or; the first series of Merlin, to a soundtrack of some of Queen's greatest hits, coming soon to a theatre near you!
download: here [.divx, 45MB] [recommended] eta: 15/01 new megaupload link here if mediafire's playing up
stream: below.

notes: Audio editing is a bitch. I could have guessed at that before I started this little endeavour, but I know for sure. This all came about when I realised that Merlin needed, desperately, to be vidded to Queen, and why pick one song when you can mash up seven? We've got a snippet of We Will Rock You, Under Pressure for Uther, Another One Bites The Dust for Arthur, Seven Seas Of Rhye for Gwen, Killer Queen for Morgana, A Kind Of Magic for Merlin, Somebody To Love for the Dragon, and One Vision for this whole crazy programme that we love. My favourite thing about this fandom is how we all know that it is sparkly, sparkly crack, and yet it somehow springs up these moments of gravitas and we are all entirely compelled by the spectacle anyway. Hence: rock opera. I am beset with streaming woes, so I really do recommend the download for good quality.

I... I don't think I have ANY words for how awesome this is. Oh my God. I hadn't even finished cracking up over the Knight's Tale shoutout before Uther had the terror of knowing what this world is about -- UNDER PRESSURE -- and it just worsened from there. THE DRAGON. GOLDEN GLANCE. FRIED CHICKEN. I will possibly never recover. Queen + Merlin = OTP?
Haha, thank you so much, glad to amuse! :D And yes, yes. O-T-P!
Oh my God, I love this so much I can hardly stand it. This is sheer unadulterated brilliance.

*watches over and over again*
Yay, thank you very much indeed! I'm thrilled you enjoyed it.

*flails* The singing slash dragon!
His is a sad song. *nods seriously* Hahaha, thank you very much!
Great job! Very creative. My fav part is the Arthur montage to Another one bites the dust. I get chills! And great capper with One vision. Thanks.
I'm so glad you enjoyed it, thank you very much!
There should be a law against having this much awesome in one vid.

On the other hand... no there shouldn't. :)
Hee, thanks so much! :D

Thank you very much indeed!
Awesome. Am downloading for rewatchability. :)
Hurray, thank you very much! :D
LOL Omg such a rock opera you made here. The songs all fit very well with ther perspective people too. Fun times!
Hahaha, and there were SO MANY MORE I could have done. Merlin's just a poor boy, from a poor family! They are the champions! Etc etc. Thank you very much!
Oh, I had hoped for someone using 'A Kind Of Magic'! Queen + Merlin are officially love! (Anything remotely 'glam' really.)
So glad you agree, thank you!
I LOVE YOU. I don't think there are words to describe how happy that vid makes me or which part I liked best.

Hee, thank you so much, dear! I'm thrilled you liked it. :D

Ok, I am utterly in love with this. Truly and utterly with all my heart!!! Srsly, not only am I a huuuuge fan of mashups where everyone gets a song to dance to, but I'm also in love with Merlin and you've done such a brilliant fantastic spectacle here!!! Everything was perfect! Everyone's song matched perfectly for them! AND THE DRAGON GOT A SONG!!!!! Omg I was ON THE FLOOR when I realized what you done there. :P Srsly, Merlin fandom is made of so much win!!!!!! *bows to you*
It totally does.

Your comment makes me all twirly, thank you so much! :D
This is amazing! You are a genius! THE DRAGON NEEDS SOMEBODY TO LOVE OMG.
HE REALLY DOES. :D Thank you so much!
There are... no words. Oh, my cracktastic fandom. How I heart thee ♥

Taking the download, FYI, because this is too good to watch in a tiny little box ;)
Hahaha, I know, right? Thank you very much indeed!

That was freaking fantastic. The end. The singing dragon. I died of lolz and yey feelings.
Hee, I'm so glad, thank you! :D
I don't know how you've managed it, but you've taken two things I think are completely fucking awesome and combined them in such a way as to make them even more completely fucking awesomer than I was expecting!

Merlin + Queen. This may be the dictionary definition of Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together.
\o/ I love this band and this show so much, I'm glad you enjoyed the combination! Because yes, seriously. Made for each other!
AAAAAHHH EPIC WIN!! This is amazing. Queen + Merlin = great combination, and you've done a fantastic job with the editing. :D Will be taking the download, thank you!
Thank you so much, I'm delighted you liked it!
*squee* - that is so freaking brilliant!

...i think i loved the dragon's bit best, *g* aww, the slash!dragon needs someone to love, poor thing.
Thank you so much! I'm pretty sure the dragon is my favourite bit too. :D Also, your icon is comprised solely of win!

This is sooooooo amazing! Well done on it all. It works so well
I'm so glad you enjoyed it, thank you!
WOW! Amazing!
Thank you very much!
This is so ridiculously awesome. Queen + Merlin = OTP! YAY!

I think my favourite thing is that the vid sums up how much I love each and every character in the show - and I love that they all now have Queen shaped theme songs (even if it does lead to me grinning like a loon next time I get to see my favourite Queen tribute band).

Of course, I now sort of want you to do videos to the whole songs (particularly Under Pressure, Another One Bites The Dust, Killer Queen and One Vision - which were all sorts of perfect - so pretty much all of them ;)).
Theme songs! Woo! This was such a project of cracky, cracky love, so thank you!
Your video was absolutely delicious and sparkly and wonderful on so many, many levels. Thank you for your time, efforts, and all the prettiness!
Hee, thank you so very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D
YOU ARE MY NEW HERO. OMG the dragon totally singing. <3 This is so made of wins! *gives you an internetz*
Hahaha, thank you so much! :D
This was fantastically perfect!
Thanks so much! :D
EEEeeee! :D
Hee! \o/
This wins EVERYTHING. Omg, it's like every cracktastic awesome wonderful thing about the show and all the characters in vid form :DDDD
Hee, thank you so much, I'm glad it worked for you!
