As a big fan of Hannibal and an art historian, I’ve always been intrigued by this castle that we can see as the Lecter family’s castle in season three. So I did some research, and I found out that it is actually this castle : château de Noisy (or château Miranda) in Belgium.
And I also found out that this castle was abandonned since 1991, and that it is now threatened to be destroyed (Wikipedia even says that the castle has actually been destroyed in October 2017, but I couldn’t find any proof of it).
So I just wanted to share these pictures with you, enjoy this beautiful castle, and cry, maybe, over its fate and destruction.
It’s late and I have to be up by 5 am tomorrow but I just got back from watching Coco and all I gotta say is; Watch. Coco.
Honestly, especially if you’re Mexican (but really even if you aren’t because it’s an amazing movie), what a mf treat to have such a beautifully directed movie based on our culture. You always hear people talk about representation and its importance and you know that it is, but you never really realize just how important it is until its depicted there, in a wonderfully exquisite story.
Everything is in the details. From the big references to Frida, la chancla, mariachi, spanish-slang to the smaller ones like Infante and Negrete, the freaking norteño band that took me all the way back to my hometown; Monterrey, and the pan dulce I suddenly started craving just as much as Miguel’s dog, Dante.
The story is so beautiful, the animation is fascinating, but above all; the music. God, the music.. It made me want to cry for home.
Director Lee Unkrich said that Coco was his love letter to Mexico, he forgot to warn the audience that his love was intoxicating.

There’s just something so incredibly pure in Malec, it breaks my heart a little. I keep thinking about Magnus crying in Alec’s embrace, and them giggling like goddamn teenagers in between heated kisses, and their fingers entwining as they talk about their fears and expectations and future, and the momentary bewildered expression on Alec’s face when he’s trying to figure out who on earth could have called Magnus anything but beautiful, ever, and the tired lingering smiles on their faces when they see each other after a busy day, and Magnus keeping that Omamori charm close to him all the time because it feels like a tangible proof of something too emotionally complex to give a name to, and Alec hugging himself and looking small on Magnus’s balcony because somehow, for some reason every responsibility feels less crushing in this place that’s not supposed to feel as comforting as it does, and Magnus allowing himself to fall for someone again after centuries worth of heartbreak and misery cause he just has this gut feeling that this is going to be special, and Alec begging Magnus to stay because yes you can, we can, and the way Alec’s eyes close, overwhelmed when Magnus brushes his hand against his cheek, and the invisible transition when “the loft” somehow becomes “home,” and Alec impulsively driving into an all-searing kiss after they confess their love for each other because they truly deeply wholly sheerly care about each other so much and it hurts because an intensity of feelings like this is so rare and beautiful and I want it to exist forever
