Happy 1 Year Anniversary of this blog and over 1,000 followers! This post goes out to those who I’ve chatted with, reblogged, gotten fic recs, or just enjoyed daily streaming content from. This fandom has not only deepened and expanded my love for the X-Files but my knowledge of the world. It’s always a joy to share in the hell that is Gillian fuckery and Gillovny trash. Thank you to those who throw a reblog and like in my direction once in a while. Check out my other posts under the guide to being an xphile tag!

Special shoutout to @fuck-off-keith for always sending me relatable content.

Probably missed a bunch, but regardless, thanks for being on this hellsite. You guys make it a whole lot better. And always feel free to send an ask or chat. That goes for my followers as well! 

anonymous asked:

I always wondered in this day in age why can't they leave her hair alone and just dye it in post production and editing, isn't it possible?? like they changed Bedelia's dress color in one episode from purple to red

I don’t know a lot about post production, but I do know that it’s impossible to do such a thing. Hair is the most impossible thing to reproduce, and you certainly don’t want Scully to look like she’s just out of a video game. Letting her be blond seems way more simple!

“(…) And, you know, the exciting thing for me is that I always felt like Bedelia Du Maurier was the smartest person on the show and that she will remain in that position. Yet there is this sickening feeling of… We saw what happened to Will Graham and Jack Crawford and Alana Bloom and Abigail Hobbs when they trifled with a cannibal. They’ve kind of rocketed toward their doom. The feeling with Bedelia is, you know, is she rocketing toward her doom now as a part of this new cabal? What is that paradigm shift between those two characters, which I think will be part of the intrigue of the third season.” - Bryan Fuller (x)

I’m too sober for this shit.

When it comes to Hannibal and Will, it seems Bedelia is forced to forego her position as a psychiatrist and provide marriage counselling. But in all seriousness, she is far more efficient in regards to understanding the complexities of their relationship than anyone else. More so, probably, than Hannibal and Will themselves.

I’ve been talking to Hannibal fans on other social networks, and one thing that surprises me is the amount of animosity toward Bedelia. I understood there are some people in the fandom who do not like her, but the amount aimed at her specifically is unbelievable. Of course everyone has a different opinion, but some people said they hope she suffers in S4, which -to me- is a little extreme.

While I ship Bedannibal, I also ship Hannigram, and as such I’m a little bit of a traitor to both sides of the fandom, but I don’t care; to me, Hannibal’s relationship with Bedelia is as important as his relationship with Will, and just as interesting to watch and explore. Many people may disagree, maybe some will say “choose a side” or something like that, but I honestly believe it is important to consider all sides of a story - to ignore a character’s relationship with another is almost ignoring a side to their personality, and as we have seen Hannibal behaves differently with Bedelia than he does Will, and he certainly treats them differently to all other characters.

Yes, I realise: not everyone likes particular characters. Yes, I know: that should not surprise me. But the sheer viciousness of some fans toward Bedelia surprises me beyond words.
