Valiant: My Lord, am I really to be judged on some hearsay from a boy? Merlin: I’ve seen those snakes come alive! Uther: How dare you interrupt?! Guards! [Guards begin taking Merlin away.]
My #1 reason for adoring the episode “Valiant,” though, is actually kind-of embarrassing. There’s a tiny moment in the midst of the scene where Valiant accuses Merlin of lying and Uther orders soldiers to cart him away where Bradley James (Arthur) breaks character and it kills me so much.
Arthur’s supposed to look really upset that this is happening to Merlin. But if you watch the scene and pay attention Bradley during to the long shot where the guards seize Merlin (right around 27:40 on Netflix), Bradley James turns back to Colin Morgan (Merlin) with this shit-eating grin on his face, like, hell yes you are getting grabbed by the extras, Colin, are you enjoying this moment, etc.
People. I find this utterly endearing. I’ve watched this sequence SO MANY TIMES IN A ROW.

FAITH BEGINS! VALIANT’S MOST DEMANDED HERO STEPS OUT OF HARBINGER…AND INTO AN ALL-NEW ADVENTURE!
Faith Herbert, the psionically gifted “psiot” known as Zephyr, has been a neglected child, a pawn of the Harbinger Foundation,
and a washout with the government superteam called Unity. But now she’s
taking control of her life and becoming the hero she’s always known she
can be - complete with a secret
identity, a codename, and a cover assignment that routinely throws her
into harm’s way! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever
thought as she uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy that could destroy
human civilization from the inside out! Is Faith out of her depth…or
in for her biggest adventure yet? Rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black)
and red-hot artist Francis Portela (Green Lantern) pilot a new chapter for Valiant’s high-flying hero right here in her first-ever limited series!
I’m back with a small dining set after my not-so-short hiatus. One of the first items I ever converted was the Valiant Steed dining chair from the Sims 2. I really did an awful job with the textures, shadows, and overall mesh, so here it is redone along with a matching table. Both items have completely new textures to match the Sims 4, in ten wood variations. The chair has mix and matched wood for a total of 100 swatches!
