Look at me. I’m afraid, John. Afraid.  Always been able to keep myself distant…divorce myself from feelings…But look, you see? Body’s betraying me. Interesting, yes? Emotions. The grit on the lens, the fly in the ointment.

THOUGHT 7:

Upon being introduced to people, you can only say their last name. Except your soul mate: you can only say their first name. Ever. Like, no matter how hard you try you just can’t say their last name. Can you imagine, like:

Person A: Good evening Mr. …?
Persona B: [last name]
Person A: [mouthing last name, trying to say it]
Persona B {frowning, bit insulted}: [repeats last name slower]
Person A {flustered now}: [still mouthing] [gives up, extremely embarrassed] 
Person B {glares, says sarcastically}: Just call me [first name]
Person A: [says name easily]
Person A&B {blinks}: Oh. Oh hell

An invitation to other fandoms

As you may know the Hannibal s3 final has been aired in CANADA on thursday. Since NBC changed the airing night (mid season) the US airing is tonight (saturday 29th). However, depending your region, it might not air at it’s usual time (more info here).

To celebrate our show and love we have for the cast & crew, i really wish we could trend at the first place on twitter.

Each week fannibals have been scheduling tweets with this lil baby  and blogs  have been posting prompts for tweets here & here 

I extend a hand to all of the fandoms on here to help us. As you know our show got cancelled and tonight is the last time (maybe before a long time) we get to live tweet during an episode. We ask you to be as loud as us tonight by using the hashtag:  #HannibalMicDrop and #Hannibal  but only starting 9pm EST ( aka 3am in the UK and 4am for the majority of Europe).

You don’t have to watch the episode, but if you take the time to schedule a couple of tweets or just one. You can also favorite/retweet other’s tweets because that also helps with rating!

We shall FOREVER be grateful if you take the time to do it.

Merci!

ps: Have more info on how Twitter works here

i believe that john was in love with major sholto.

i also believe that john is in love with sherlock, will be for the rest of his life, that he’s never loved anyone the way he loves sherlock, that sherlock is his soulmate, and john’s entire existence has come down to meeting and knowing sherlock.

these two beliefs are not mutually exclusive.

love is not limited. 

especially not for john watson, the bravest, kindest, and wisest character we’ve ever known…

I just realised there is something I really want for S4/5. 

John having a drinking problem and by some ill luck meeting Harry will he is totally plastered. Harry, of course, has been clean now for ages and I want her to give him hell for this. 

HANNIBAL SEASON 4

So a few weeks ago, when the cancellation of Hannibal was announced, there were campaigns and petitions and movements with the intention of keeping the talks about Hannibal alive. I remember about 1 in 3 posts on tumblr were about keeping Hannibal the talk of Twitter and other social media. Where is everyone now?? It’s the season finale! Let’s do it like never before and get Hannibal related hashtags to trend not just in some countries but WORLDWIDE (better to be overly ambitious). But if we literally flood social media, THERE IS A BIGGER CHANCE OF A SEASON 4 HAPPENING. Bryan Fuller and co. are continuously looking for new pathways. Let’s make their job easier and make a big commotion! Whether you’ve seen the season finale already or are still waiting (mad props to you btw), let’s do this!! Tweet Bryan and DeLaurentiis and the official page of Hannibal, tweet EVERYONE and have fun. THERE HAS TO BE A SEASON FOUR! FELLOW TUMBLR FANS, give us a hand will you? We’re all here fandoming in our respective fandoms sharing the language of fanarting and fanfictioning and crying and loving the beautiful characters of our shows. Any contributions are so helpful. Think of what it would be like if your show were to get cancelled. Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Teen Wolf, Merlin, and so on. There are so many fandoms and so much influence we all have. You may also think more selfishly and maybe see that if a season four of Hannibal happens and therefore a canonically overt gay pairing is developed by the beautiful and talented Bryan Fuller, DOORS ARE OPENED and roads are paved for more TV shows to have the courage to follow up on this example. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, Hannibal fandom, let yourselves be heard!! Let’s cooperate with Bryan Fuller and Co. and show our love and appreciation for this beautiful show. The show airs at 10 in the US I believe, check the equivalent time for your time zone and create movement on the social media around that time! It kind of really matters that the support and love for the show is noticed especially over there and that will make it easier for Bryan to ‘fish for’ interested parties. WE GOT THIS and there will definitely be a HANNIBAL SEASON FOUR. We’re just helping to move the waters around. LETS GOOOO

JOHN LOST SHERLOCK AFTER REICHENBACH, AND HE FINALLY TRIED TO LET HIM GO BY PROPOSING TO MARY, JOHN KNOWS MARY IS EVIL, MAYBE SUBCONCIOUSLY, BUT WHATEVER, HE’S ALWAYS KNOWN, AND THEN AND THEN THEY HAVE THEIR BITTERSWEET REUNION BUT IT’S ALL DIFFERENT NOW !!!! AND JOHN IS STILL TRYIGN TO MOVE ON BUT HE IS FAILING HE IS STRESSED AND PISSED OFF AND DREAMING ABOUT SHERLOCK LITRALLY IN HIS BED LYING NEXT TO HIS FIANCE. BUT GUESS WHAT. MARY ISN’T REAL, NOT EVEN A REAL PERSON - MARY ISN’T EVEN HER REAL NAME. BUT THEN THERE’S THE FACT THAT HE’S ALREADY PROPOSED, THAT TERRIBLE WONDERFUL NIGHT, IN A DESPERATE EFFORT TO FINALLY GET A GRIP ON REALITY AFTER SHERLOCK’S DEATH. BUT THEN SUDDENLY THERE’S THE BABY (GOOD JOB IT’S FAKE LOL) AND THEN SUDDENLY IT’S SHERLOCK’S TURN TO LOSE JOHN, AND IT’S AT THE WEDDING ON THE DANCE FLOOR UNDER THOSE PURPLE AND YELLOW LIGHTS AND WITH THE STICKINESS OF TOO MUCH ROSIN ON HIS FINGERTIPS THAT SHERLOCK MAKES THE DECISION TO LET JOHN GO

Omg but what if John visits Sherlock sometime after the wedding (and before the drug den incident) and they just sit in the flat and talk and bask in each other’s company and then John looks up at the clock and tells Sherlock that he had to get back to his house and then Sherlock just looks away for a second. John asks him what the problem was and Sherlock says, “I hate these visits, John.” 

John opens his mouth to say something and then Sherlock whispers, “Because I know you’ll have to leave eventually.” 

And John just stares.
