Read this. Read it and then enjoy. Because I'm writing it. Right now.

Arthur has a YouTube page where he posts videos of himself playing his favorite songs on the guitar. He is pretty popular. Merlin also has a YouTube page, but it’s dedicated to teaching people how to play the guitar.

One of Arthur’s subscribers suggested that Arthur should check Merlin’s page out (Arthur took it as an insult, because why would he need tutoring?). But Arthur checked it out anyway. After spending the whole evening going through Merlin’s videos, he found himself being completely captivated by Merlin’s joy (the way Merlin is so happy to share what he loved).

After fretting forever over it, Arthur posted a reply video to one of Merlin’s video (some song).

So the whole purpose is I want to see them courting through YouTube video replying? Instead of sending messages back and forth as answers, they reply through their songs?


I have their playlists done already. Basically, perusing YouTube for acoustic music landed me on these FANTASTIC guys (with such a beautiful voice too) so you should definitely give them a listen. Arthur has a sort of one track taste in music--mostly rock and R&B. Merlin is totally eclectic and does pop, rock, R&B, country, etc.

Now all I need is to figure out is what they would call their YouTube channels. Hrmmm.

You have no idea how excited I am about this story. I love putting music into stories. EEEE!

I have to have a banner or cover art (OR BOTH!) for this story (cos yeah, I'm including all the songs in a zip file because I couldn't NOT do that). I wonder if I could beg another graphic favor from the lovely sparksflyout. *bats eyelashes* I will totally write something all of your own if you want!!

Anyhoo, if you guys have any input as to what you would like to see happen in the story, please share!

I have FINALLY come up with a title if you wanted it.

Title: Listen to the Music of the Moment

Also if you wanted to use lyrics from those songs or whatnot, you can look at those vids and google the songs or I can look 'em up for you.

And I hope I can catch you online soon! :D

Sounds AWESOME.
I <3 putting music into stories too. All my Glee fics have musical interludes to break up the scenes. ;)
I request some sort of reference to Spongebob, please.
(Can I have a sneak look at playlist, please?)

AHAHA what sort of reference to Spongebob? Like to random Spongebob videos on youtube or just Spongebob in general? I will definitely slip him in there for you, since I love him! :D

And yeah, you can listen to the playlists on my youtube page. I posted one for Arthur and one for Merlin and I am going to upload all the songs for download with the story.
