Random fangirling is what I do

DC is being all gritty and “realistic” and Marvel just had a movie where the galaxy is saved by a dance-off and the power of friendship



It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.

You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.

And the rest of us are not treated like human beings. Period. (x)

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



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!)

the answer to all of this is yes



Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are a pretty great couple.
