This is very true - I’ve seen innumerable fanfics of people saying, “I could do this better than they did.”
And quite frequently, they do.
Fanfiction is 60% fun, 30% porn and 120,000,000% fixing canon because canon is WRONG and needs to go sit in the corner and think about what it’s done.
literature meme | 1 epic [1/1] Arthurian Legend
…till Arthur at last made a push with his company, consisting of six thousand six hundred and sixty-six men, against that in which he knew Modred was; and having opened a way with their swords, they pierced quite through it, and made a grievous slaughter. For in this assault fell the wicked traitor himself, and many thousands with him. But notwithstanding the loss of him, the rest did not flee, but running together from all parts of the field maintained their ground with undaunted courage. The fight now grew more furious than ever, and proved fatal to almost all the commanders and their forces. […] And even the renowned king Arthur himself was mortally wounded; and being carried thence to the isle of Avallon to be cured of his wounds, he gave up the crown of Britain…

Young Sherlock in college days. I imagined it. :)
Me gusta retocar imágenes, cambiarles los colores, luces, sombras, textura, etc. Empecé con esta y OH DIOS! es que, apenas cambié el tono y era PERFECTA! Parece una ilustración a lapiz. Si supiera dibujar la estaría pasando al papel YA! Perdí la cuenta de cuántas variaciones hice por el simple hecho de que TODAS quedaban hermosas.
En fin, la cita no es exacta pero casi. Uno de los momentos más especiales de la serie para mí. Merlín: “¿No estás asustado?” - Arthur: “Oh, lo estoy, Merlin. Quizás más que vos”. El diálogo está dicho de manera tan dulce y suave, es un momento de completa sinceridad por parte de Arthur con Merlín.
I like to retouch pictures, change the colors, lights, shadows, texture, etc.. I started with this one and OH MY GOD! I just changed the tone and it was PERFECT! It seems an illustration on pencil. If I could draw I would be doing it RIGHT NOW, but sadly I can’t! I lost count of how many variations I did of this image for the simple fact that ALL were beautiful.
So, the quote is not exact but close. One of the most special moments of the series for me. Merlin: “You’re not scared?” - Arthur: “Oh, I am, Merlin. Maybe more than you”. The dialogue it is said so so sweet and soft, it is a moment of complete sincerity by Arthur with Merlin.
P.S.: I’m trying to practice my English, which it is a little (a lot) off. So, I’m sorry for any horrible mistake I have committed. And if anyone want to correct this, you’re going to be very wellcome.
WHAT IS THIS BEAUTY?!!!
