lactobacille asked

While I'm on it: Vienna and Nicosia!

lactobacille:

Thanks for asking :333

Vienna: Choose a song to define your life and explain it.

Omg this is really tough, like REALLY TOUGH, do you know how tough this is? I could list you like a hundred songs that I love but this…

Haha I guess “I ship it” by notliterally. Honestly, most songs I like are just poetic and don’t have to do anything with my life (ugh just imagine who would write a song about an insecure sarcastic girl studying at a university in a small town, wasting her life away on tumblr and literally just living in books and TV shows?xD)

So, yeah that song fits xD

Nicosia: How often do you fall into a state of procrastination?

Often, though I wouldn’t call myself a professional procrastinator XD Usually, I’m pretty good at delivering work on time and start pretty early that’s why I have the time to procrastinate in between writing essays and studying. :3 And I naturally spend much time on tumblr (this site doesn’t help with being focused) or I’m being distracted by an idea for a story,a song to whose lyrics I have to sing along. So yeah I’m pretty easily distracted but I try to stay focused very hard, so I’d say the time I spent procrastinating is pretty average.

*Don’t Stop Believing playing in the distance*

JUST A SMALL TOWN GIRL 
Livin’ in books and TV shows
She took the Tumblr train
And can’t go back
Still a small town girl
Insecure and sarcastic
At least that’s what she said
Yet she’s awesome

A singer when she’s distracted
Almost a pro procrastinator
She’s studying at the uni
And ships on and on and on AND ON 

Now I’m officially crying xD You should totally become a songwriter :D

Hi. I've got a prompt for you: Decades have passed; Will and Hannibal are old men who've spent the best years of their life together. Hannibal has Alzheimer's (or any other illness) and is living in the past. Will takes care of him. I want it to be bittersweet, please.

lastcellontheleft:

I Chose You

________

Will catches Hannibal mumbling about sweetbreads one morning, and watches a paring knife disappear into the pocket of the man’s dressing gown. Will thinks he should intervene, but something distracts him and his thoughts fly elsewhere. He doesn’t think about Hannibal’s kleptomania again until the in-home nurse Will hired specifically to keep tabs on his ailing partner nearly looses an eye.

It’s a bittersweet relief that Hannibal’s motor skills have gone with his memory. 

“It’s alright,” she offers, even as Will writes out a severance check. “I’ve worked with patients who suffer from dementia, it isn’t the first time someone’s tried to attack me.”

Will doesn’t tell her how lucky she is; that most men with dementia aren’t experienced killers who barely escaped the long arm of the law. He doesn’t say anything. He just hands her the check and they’re down another nurse.

Hannibal’s expression is wrathful when Will returns to him. His feeble body curled like a snake ready to strike.

“Why did you stop me?”

Because you’re an old man. Will thinks as he washes the woman’s blood from Hannibal’s fingers. Because your eyes are bad and your coordination is shot and you don’t remember.

“Because she wasn’t a pig, darling.” Will says finally, after Hannibal has slipped into quiet contemplation.

Because I won’t let you die in a prison cell.

__________

It’s three in the morning and Will wakes to an empty bed and the sounds of movement on the floor below. When he has hobbled down the stairs —favoring his left side after so many years — he finds Hannibal fully dressed in one of his old suits; the dark green houndstooth that once looked so refined and now reminds Will only of blood and mothballs. 

The kitchen is flush with savory scents, but Will knows from experience the meal will not be edible. 

When Hannibal finally notices him, he quirks his lips in that secretive half-smile Will used to fear as much as cherish.

“I did not realize you would be gracing me with your company, Will.”

And there it is. August 2013. The Idomeneo reception. 

“You know how I hate these things.” He answers easily, falling into a routine that should not be as easy as it is.

Their conversation unfolds like the steps of a beloved dance, and Will treads lightly through Hannibal’s misplaced memories. His brief affection for Alana. Hannibal’s careful curiosity regarding the Chesapeake Ripper. Will’s deteriorating health.

Soon, though, the illusion passes, and Hannibal is watching him with something akin to awe. Hannibal shuffles toward him, his hands shaking noticeably as they rise to cup his face.

“Your fever is gone.” Hannibal tells him.

“And yet I am here.” Will answers.

Hannibal smiles at him with age-yellowed teeth. 

“You stayed,” he breathes, and Will’s abdomen aches with phantom pains. “You chose me.”

“I chose you,” Will echoes, and waits for the memory to fade again, for Hannibal’s eyes to lose their lucid gleam and grow wet with confusion. 

“I chose you.”

i love hannibal ok but it could be considered queerbaiting, not actually a queer show, since there is really nothing actually gay happening (expect if a person can look at it that way) lmao

homoette:

I hear that argument a lot, and for a while, I too wondered if it was actually queerbaiting. But I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t, and I’ll tell you why.

I don’t personally see it as queerbaiting, but as pure queer subtext (not even gay subtext, I think it’s more complicated than that). Let me start by saying that many films that are considered queer by today’s standards don’t show anything gay happening on screen (Hitchcock’s Rope is a fantastic example of that, so are The Talented Mr. Ripley, Strangers On A Train, Interview With A Vampire, Fried Green Tomatoes, Alexander… the list goes on).

Secondly, the queer subtext in Hannibal is not placed there artificially or as a joke, it’s what moves the plot and drives the characters’ actions. I think a good comparison would be with the way cannibalism is portrayed on the show. Even though we don’t actually see Hannibal killing a person, cutting them up and cooking their organs until season two, the cannibalism is heavily implied. We see him taking a bite out of a piece of meat, and we know the meat is people. We, as viewers, are expected to know about the cannibalism, even though there’s no real “proof”. I believe the same goes for the queer aspect of the show. Even though we will probably never(call me an optimist) see Hannibal kissing Will, that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love him that way (which has been confirmed on the show and by the actors and writers. Several times).

Will Graham, like the viewers, learns who Hannibal really is. He doesn’t need to see Hannibal killing a man with his own eyes to know the truth. Hannibal doesn’t flat out tell Will that he’s a killer, but Will knows he is, and they talk about it without actually admitting to anything. Though, to be fair, admissions have been made, one way or another. How else could you interpret the scene where Hannibal talks about lovers being aware of each other? And don’t get me started on the Achilles and Partoclus reference, that’s not queerbaiting, that is clear queer subtext and I would even argue over just how subtextual it really is, or isn’t as the case may be. Will and Hannibal’s entire relationship is based on subtexts (the cannibalistic murder one, as well as the queer one).

That’s how I see it, anyways. Thank you so much for your input, anon! :) I do hope to see better official queer representation in the show in the future (*chants* Margot! Margot!)

I need season 3 Hannibal and Will to fight.

Balls to the wall, improvised, weapons at each others throat, fighting.

And the whole time I need Hannibal snarkily flirting with Will, channeling all of his betrayal and anger into quips of “Did you miss me darling?” and “Just like old times, eh?”  I need them panting in each other’s faces while Will snarls that Hannibal’s always going after things he shouldn’t.

I need it.
