So i've been scouring the internets for Hannibal stuff. It has taken me to livejournal and dreamwidth of course. And I found quite a bit for a show that hasn't really taken off yet. (There is nada on IJ!) But still, IJ is home for me. And LJ and DW are scary places where I have no friends (or at least very few). So even if it is all by my lonesome, I think I will mostly continue to post over here, at least for now.
And who knows, maybe I'll convert some of you to Hannibal lovers! (As in lovers of the show, not the hannibal himself, i hate that guy. Well ok, really more of a love/hate relationship. More on him in the next post. Cause he is awesomesauce. And I shake my fist at him because he is also horrible!) And really, I need to convert some of you. Ratings were a bit sad for season 1. I blame it on the odd scheduling of the show and also it being on NBC, I mean, who watches NBC anymore? But miraculously we got a renewal for season 2! And season 2 doesn't air until 2014, which means you all have plenty of time to watch season 1. And the creator has 7 seasons of arcs mapped out, so we really need this show to stick around, yo!
I don't, however, want to spoil anyone who may tune in. So I'll try to be careful to keep all my spoilerish posts below a cut, or warn if something I'm linking to spoilers.
But for now I'll just start with Will Graham. That guy in my icon. And the main character. Will is super smart, like crazy smart. And has this insane ability to empathize with murders. Handy for the FBI, but also kind of fucked up. He is also rather broken. Thinking like a killer and being regularly mind-fucked by his psychiatrist, Dr. Lecter, will do that a guy. And he is oh so lovable. He has a house full of stray dogs that he saved. I want to take him home and give him a blanket and a cup of soup and pat his head.
