So I decided to watch the newest episode of Hannibal (Fromage) a few hours earlier than the US premiere so I could watch it a second time around with more attention to detail. One of the things that really caught my attention the first watch through was the way the scenes were set up between Tobias and Hannibal and how their posing affected their characters.
Part of me likes to think that Hannibal surprises himself with how frequently he thinks about exactly what Will Graham would taste like.
He does it with no intention of acting on it - not yet, at least, because this man is far too interesting of an enigma to put down - but he can’t seem to supress his curiosity every time they’re in a room together. It shouldn’t be a difficult question; he knows what humans taste like, knows exactly what flavors mix well and what temperatures make the browned meat turn rubbery in texture. But every time he thinks he’s found the answer, Will does something that makes him scrap everything and start over. It’s not simply just a challenge anymore, it’s a game. It’s exhillerating.
And sometimes, when they’re alone together, he can’t help but lean in slightly and take a slow inhale of the other man’s musk. Ideas rush through his mind in rapid fire as he tries to solve the riddle, seeing the glimpse of skin by his collar that’s lightly coated with sweat and feeling a small rush of twisted pleasure. But just as quickly as the moment starts, Will Graham moves and continues their conversation.
If he notices the faintest edge of a smile on Hannibal’s face, he doesn’t mention it.
Pie is definitely a symbol for Dean’s not-so-secret want of a normal life. ok go talk pie symbolism to meOh my god Marilyn please I am laughing so hard right now. But why not?
I’m not an advocate blog. Simply put, violently arguing with people really isn’t my thing. But my entire dash has basically been nothing but ‘Pope Francis is evil!’ and ‘Look at how disgusting his views are!’ for the past 48 hours and I just … don’t understand why everyone had such high expectations? Let me explain my point.
What if Jimmy is still inside his body, but he’s created a sort of endless coma state for himself to cope where he thinks he’s still living his life as if Cas never interrupted it. He wakes up every morning, kisses Amelia and Claire on the foreheads and heads to work, forgets to buy milk at the grocery store on his way back home and whispers a blessing when he sees snow falling for the first time this season, goes home, says Grace at the dinner table, ectect. The only strange part of his day is the dreams he has during the nights, about an angel who wears his skin and the man he tries countless times to save. The dreams are often frightening and painful to witness, so he’ll confide in Amelia in ragged whispers during the middle of the night and she’ll kiss his hands and tell him to go back to bed, that God is looking after them and wouldn’t let anything like that happen to him.
It always sucks when I get reminded how many Jimmy Novak/Castiel feels I have, because while both of them are constrastingly different people - Jimmy is a devout, happy man who is just a regular guy in the span of things while Cas is a powerhouse of an angel - they both go through the exact same turn of events that lead them both into the same form of tragedy and it sucks.
This has been sitting in my ask for a bit, and I’m really sorry I haven’t answered it until now. I’m not even sure you’re still around but it’s just really hard for me to answer without getting incredibly emotional.
I wrote a post about this (kind of) not too long ago, but as I mentioned there I think canon!Destiel deserves a tragic ending. With the way that their story has progressed, I’d be dissapointed if they turned it into some sort of cuddle and heartwarming sort of thing because the most important thing at this point is that both of them are incredibly broken men.
I mean, I can give you my ideal scene but it’s not necessarily a pleasant one. I have a ton of them, but the one that always comes back to me involves Dean!death (and before you say anything I fucking love Dean okay so this isn’t some sort of vengeful thing, I just think Dean deserves to go out with a bang) and having Castiel clutching at him after some sort of horrendous event gone wrong. They would have some sort of pained dialogue and I always imagine Dean reaching up to finally touch Cas’s face with blood stained hands and leaving a trail of red on his jawline. Dean would attempt to smile or something and go ‘Cheer up, Cas, this isn’t over for you. Not yet.’ and Cas would look down at him in complete and utter pain because he doesn’t want to tell Dean that it is, it really really is over now that Dean’s dying, but instead he’d watch the life leave Dean’s eyes and he’d lean down and kiss his forehead before whispering ‘I’m sorry’ and then eventually getting up to kill whatever took Dean from him in a massive, angel like fury. I think actions speak louder than words, and something like that happening would speak ‘I love you’ louder than any declaration I can think of.
And then I would light myself on fire and everything would be miserable and now I made myself sad.
I’m just going to rant and/or make a statement about media in general and some of the reactions it receives because it infuriates me to no end. I’m not directing this towards anyone on Tumblr, because one of the loveliest things about this website is that there are millions of people who gather together to share in fandoms and to praise certain people. Instead, it’s more to the people who act belligerent and claim that people shouldn’t take media so seriously and passionately because its just ‘easy entertainment.’
While it’s safe to say that I had an armada of feelings over every single character in this show tonight, it was primarily Stiles and Derek that got me because they’re both trying to hard to do their jobs and trying to hide how weak they feel with every fiber of their being.
Sure thing! Any excuse to talk about my Destiel feels is a great excuse.
I think the best way for me to summarize it is to point out Dean’s psychology. He was literally raised to think that demons and any other monster were awful because not only were they the thing that the Winchesters hunted but they were also the same things that killed their mom. So while you’ve got Sam who is resenting John for everything that he’s done, Dean’s the one that’s swallowing all his words and making sure he’s the good son because he has to be. So when you live by that your entire life, you become a product of your own environment. There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ monsters, there’s only the awful and the things you have to kill.
So when you look at Dean and Cas’s relationship, it’s startling because Cas isn’t human. Yeah, sure, Jimmy is human and he looks the same as anyone else, but so do Shapeshifters and Sirens and Demons and all of those have died by the Winchester’s guns. There’s been angels that have died by their hands as well, so it’s not like it’s impossible for them to kill them or feel bad about it. But yet, Dean and Cas develop this relationship where they trust and rely on one another not out of spite or against their will, but from trust and acceptance. Dean goes from openly hating the guy to being the absolute last one to defend him against the claims of his betrayal. Dean literally throws away his entire philosophy on monsters to accept Cas in with open arms.
I think Jensen did a really good job of describing the difference between Sam and Cas in his CC12 interview, where he’s talking about how Sam is tangible and real while Cas is Cas. I think that entire bit really relates to these two as well, because Cas isn’t just some monster or a thing that kids are of afraid of at night; Cas is Cas. This is why I find it so hard to believe that people think this relationship is one sided, because Dean has really made some sacrifices in his own way for his angel.
(I hope that made sense, but that’s atleast my take on it! c:)
