Merlin fan art by WHIMSYCATCHING // "I’m not a monster, am I?” "So here we have a wee and woebegone warlock. I wanted to draw kid!Merlin again since lots of you seemed to enjoy my last one (Thank you!!) though this one’s on the much more angsty side… He definitely deserves all the “AWWW”s!"
Tom Hiddleston is my headcanon for Erik. Yes, I know he's extremely handsome, but I think he'd definitely be game for sporting a good deformity, and he plays the psychotic yet sympathetic antihero so well that it seems like the role would be a natural fit. He would be terrifying yet pitiable.
The amount of foreshadowing in this scene blows my mind. I still wonder whether it was intentional or accidental, since the writers didn't always seem to have a clear idea of where they were going with things, but still. Epic. --description written by Frodo the Second
