Eragon the book was a bit better than the movie which was botched on many accounts but the story was nowhere near the level of those used in Merlin especially since Merlin is based on a story/myth that has survived for thousands of years in one form or another.
Lol. Well I fell off writing in the Star Trek fandom almost a year ago. I have so many half finished stories. Then I did write for Merlin but only one story was ever completed. I have others in varying degrees of completion. It's easier to manip than write. But maybe I'll pick it up again.
Im sure you'll do fine I had something like that a few months ago. So many unfinished things. But I got it all done, and I felt so... FREE!!!!!!! I used to think the same abut manips being easier, but I have recently gone into another writing frenzy, so have kinda just let my muse have free reign, Lol : Its fun to do that!!
