I first noticed Hannibal on Pinterest (I did have a phase…) and I was always so confused as to why this apparently small and very new fandom was always showing up to SuperWhoLock parties offering food. When I got onto Tumblr, I began to notice it more and more, just sort of floating around, offering to feed people. So I finally went and watched the show, out of pure curiosity and because I wanted to understand what the food thing was all about. I had no idea that it was about a canniballistic serial killer. I didn’t understand why the hell the show was named after the main character’s therapist. I was taken aback by the amount of continuity and plot and the fact that I had to remember past episodes in order to understand the new ones, which is unusual to see in a crime drama.
And then, in a word, I began to understand everything and essentially went crazy.
