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.
When people quote The Perks of Being A Wallflower, why do they quote things like “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite,” or “We accept the love we think we deserve,” when there are gems like this.
