defenestratrix’s post filled me with such joy, I had to sit down and write a little something for it.

The helicopters whirred overhead. People bustled inside. It was mayhem. The abandoned warehouse filled with people. The disembodied voice of Mycroft Holmes echoed through its empty halls.

“Fear not, ladies. We shall have you rescued directly.”

"#i know there's a waiting list, #but marry me defenestratix, #we'll put the L back in LGBQT." Such tempting promises, but where are our matching tuxedo tee-shirts and bacon rose bouquets? Where is the MC Hammer wedding playlist?

You know I can’t resist a good floral arrangement made of pig fat and goodness, but I had something a tad more dramatic in mind.

Yes, Bloomper! With their perfect hair, and advanced degrees, being excellent and stealing dogs from Will Graham.

I like the idea of Will ‘accidentally’ taking Applesauce with him one time after he visited them, causing Molly and Alana to plan an elaborate heist to get their dog back and taking Buster with them to teach WIll a lesson, resulting in this continuous back and forth dogstealing

So upset about Beverly, too, but would love to read your Hannibal lady-meta if you ever want to post it.

Unfortunately it’s a little…out of date now, and that’s because Beverly was removed from the equation, ripping my heart and soul out of my body in the process. But if you’re interested in the gist of what it said let me see if I can explain it here.

So up until the last episode there were four women who were the major players in this season, and each of them fell on what I like to think of as a spectrum of combined influence and goals. But despite the variations of their origins of influence and what their goals are, they all have one thing in common - they each represent a particular brand of justice.

Kade Prurnell stands on what I think of as the leftmost side of the spectrum. She has been completely taken in by the fiction that Hannibal has created, believing the story wholesale and acting in accordance with what that means. She fully believes that Will has both committed the crimes and that he was conscious while doing it, and what is most refreshing about this is that even though she is acting as an antagonist to Will the adorable puppy dog victim she is not portrayed in a villainous light. Her beliefs and therefore her actions are entirely justified with the evidence that she has been given, and this means that in her own way she is seeking her own kind of justice. She is like an angry, righteous, avenging angel, coming in with purifying fire to sweep a corrupted and mismanaged bureau clean. She seeks vengeance, and rights for wrongs, and retribution, no matter who stands in her way.

To her right is Alanna. She too has been taken in by Hannibal’s lies, although to a lesser degree, believing that Will did in fact commit the crimes but also believing with all of her merciful and compassionate soul that he was not responsible for his actions. She brings hope and fatalism to Will in equal measure, telling him and anyone who will listen that if justice is to be done it will mean Will being found guilty for the crimes but not blamed for them. She is a messenger of mercy, pleading that justice be done for Will by sparing his life and sparing nothing, not even her job or reputation, to see that it happens.

Then there’s Beverly. My sweet, brilliant, doomed Beverly. She was neutral, an outsider, a truth-seeker who was led to her end by her very nature as such. She stood square in the middle of the spectrum, explicitly stating that she didn’t know what to believe about Will and showing how willing she was to look for something more. She represented the logical and implacable movement of truth, searching for the answers that others missed because it was the right thing to do even if it put her in jeopardy. There was nothing for her besides truth, and now there never will be again.

And at the end there is Bedelia. At the far right, so far away from the others that she almost defies categorization. She is, now, very nearly outside the realm of Hannibal’s influence because she has seen the truth of what he is, and that truth is a very dangerous thing to hold. She believes Will, actually believes the whole of his story and not just his profession of innocence, and with that belief and that knowledge she represents one of the few hopes for exoneration that Will has left. At this point she is a wild card, existing out beyond our grasp (or Hannibal’s grasp, which right now is the more important of the two) and remaining as a continuous threat that even Hannibal doesn’t quite know how to deal with. She is truth embodied, hope given human form, and she is just as ephemeral as both of those concepts have ever been.

I had hoped, until today, that Beverly and Bedelia would be the means of Will’s salvation. Now….now I guess we’ll have to see what happens.

defenestratrix replied to your post:I have a mighty need

Hannibal flirtatiously baking nightmare pastries for Mycroft. Ghost!Bev and Sally Donovan not getting paid enough for this shit.

Bedelia and Mycroft being classy as fuck as their sipping wine and complaining about the idiots in their life

Moriarty and Hannibal bragging to eachother how they each almost completely ruined Will’s and Sherlock’s lives over dinner. Moriarty would be cool with the food being people. In fact, he’d probaly give Hannibal some victims for his birhtday and Christmas and in return, Hannibal would cook Jim his favourite body part just the way he likes it

Fuck, I’m getting emotional

Maybe that bank robber, flush with new money, believes they are now entitled to the ritziest of parking garage hideouts.

Yes, come to the safety and luxury of our parking garage, where you may hide among the broad forms of Fiats and Vespas.  Oh and double-extended bed pickup trucks.  #Texas

defenestratrix replied to your post:Sorry about all the My Mad Fat Diary spam, but…

All the Mad Fat Diary stuff actually made me add it to my to-watch list for this week. It looks like something that might break my heart.

It’s actually a very optimistic show, considering the subject matter; although the road to optimism is paved with tears, pain and, in my case, some repressed memories resurfacing.

It’s very realistic and respectful towards mental illness, social issues and teenage angst, which is the part I loved most about it. 

It’s also very funny, has some great visuals and the characters are awesome. 

I wholeheartedly recommend it… but make sure you have some tissues at hand, just in case.

Saw Loo's reply to your tweet and am now jealous of your new fairy godmother. I just have Wesley Snipes and he won't stop high kicking people.

WHAT, SHE REPLIED, WHAT WHAT WHAT????

Also dude, Wesley Snipes would be a pretty rad fairy godmother, but only if he’s wearing his costume from Blade.  Like I would take him with me bowling like that, and to the nail salon, and just have him randomly high kick objects in my way.
