    How do you all personally feel about this when it comes to fiction works? Is it a big issue for you, or do you give the author freedom to remake reality as they go?

    For example(and a wild one at that), say someone wrote that king David of Jerusalem lived long enough to meet king arthur, and trained him how to be a warrior king instead of Merlin.

    Or if Norse deities were used by people of Mediterranean backgrounds.

    Juat random examples. But do you as a reader/critique care about such inaccuracies? Or do you just try to enjoy the story for what it is?
