At first I was a little disappointed with it - I had pictured a lot more lips & saliva than actually was.
But then I started to rewatch the gifs from the scene and GUYS. Please look at how close Hugh Dancy comes to actually starting to kiss Mads. IT’S RIDICULOUS.
He bobs his head forward and comes SO CLOSE
and then comes EVEN CLOSER OMFG
and I don’t want to take sides here but Mads really just stays neutral and probably thinking, “well, it seems like I’m gonna kiss today” and makes an almost imperceptible movement forward, but then Hugh gets all shy and thinks again and looks down.
AND WAIT IT’S NOT OVER YET, because Hugh stays like, head down, breathing hard and grabbing Mads’ arm, and then, idk, his right hand SNAKES upward? till Mads’ shoulder, and FUCK ME, look at how fucking close those two are again because Hugh moved his face towards Mads’ again
and then he puts his head on his shoulder, and Mads makes that *orgasm!* face
and NO, STILL NOT OVER, then there’s the FUCKING WAIST GRAB (and jesus, look at how Mads buries his nose on Hugh’s neck)
which may or may not have been actively, purposefully, one-sidedly staged by, GUESS WHO, HUGH DANCY.
And all that was written on the script was “lunge forward”, YOU VILLAINS.
Those two seriously I don’t know how Bryan managed it for three whole years.
Bryan threatened to quit Hannibal during S1 after a disagreement with the studio, but Hugh and Mads stood up for him. They couldn’t do the show without him because according to Hugh him and Mads recognize it’s Bryan’s show but also “It’s OUR show”
To people saying they don’t care about Hannibal…seriously that’s really something, NBC wanted to continue Hannibal but with Hugh and Mads…no Bryan.
Ok, so @magicaldestiny was SO KIND to let me off the hook for her birthday fic while I was drowning in Spacedogs stories. So I would like to thank her for that and say….LOOK! I remembered to do the thing, months later. Please forgive the lateness - as well as how incredibly sappy this is m’dear.
Will pulled the blanket around him,
trying to control the shivers that wracked his body. This was worse than the cliff - worse than the sound of his skull rattling as
Jack screamed for Hannibal to stop the saw. Will let himself loll to the side, head
thumping weakly on the arm of the sofa. Through half-closed eyes, Will saw
calf-leather loafers shuffling toward him.
“If you were
planning to kill me again, now would be a great time,” Will moaned, letting his
eyes fall closed. He heard the clink of a tray as it settled on the coffee
table before he felt himself being pulled upright and settled against a warm, solid mass.
dream of killing you,” Hannibal murmured in Will’s ear, offering him a steaming
cup of tea. “Unless
you wipe your nose on my hand loomed throw again.”
for that.” The tea smelled of ginger, Will gulped it down.
yet the stain remains.”
“You know you
actually gutted me, right? Like, my actual innards spilled out.”
that more than you’ll ever know.” Hannibal sighed, pressing a kiss behind
Will’s ear. “I’m
sure the floors had to be refinished. They were original to the house.”
“If I wasn’t
three seconds from dying, I’d smack you.”
ridiculous, Will. You’ve got hours before dehydration would even seriously
threaten you.” Hannibal held up a bowl of soup and made Will swallow a few
spoonfuls. “There, I’ve just bought you another half hour, at least.”
ever talk to you about bedside manor?”
smirked. “I’ve never had any complaints.”
“Sex puns? When I’m too weak to defend myself? Have you no mercy?”
“None.” Hannibal fed Will a few more swallows of soup before setting the bowl on the
table. “Now, how shall we wait out this illness? I could read to you? Perhaps
his mouth, then snapped it shut. Hannibal frowned.

“I would have
thought after the incident in Pallentine Chapel, you’d know there is very
little I’m not willing to do to and for you.”
“For the last
time, if I had known that goddamn nun was watching us, I wouldn’t have-”
Why does Mads have a damaged eye in so many movies lmao
I mean, I can only think of three off the top of my head, and for someone with 48 IMDb acting credits that’s not actually that many all things considered. :P But I suppose there’s also the Death Stranding eye goo… and his character in Adam’s Apples does get shot in the eye…
Okay so five. Five instances of weird eye things going on. That probably is more than usual. Which leads me to conclude that Mads is clearly Odin in the flesh and the universe is really desperate for us to catch on.
Killing Stalking is soooo fucked up…but in the most perfect way. What is it with me and shipping fictional murderers with innocent people.?! I think a lot of people in the Hannibal (or rather Hannigram) fandom might enjoy Killing Stalking. Give it a try but get ready for some real good fucked up shit.
I mean look at that art, it is so great !!! And the story is is so good too !!! Ah I am in love ><
