ya know, hannibal was a show that was named after a cannibalistic serial killer, where people died literally EVERY EPISODE in various gruesome and horrific ways, and yet it still managed to not kill off its queer female characters.
Instead of tv shows killing off queer women, why not have them exit alive and well in the most badass, majestic and fashionable way possible?
Also worth pointing out that in the books, Alana is a straight man who only just barely cameos in Red Dragon and Margot, whilst still one of the most interesting characters, is the epitome of the ignorant stereotypical portrayal of a lesbian woman.
In the show, Alana was gender-swapped and depicted as bisexual, having been in relationships with both men AND women which was done in a way that promoted sexual fluidity. Margot was written in a non-homophobic way and actually integrated well into the story, unlike the movie which cut her out completely.
Also they had an extremely beautifully and sophisticatedly filmed sex scene which wasn’t needlessly sexualised.
