Things I want to write but have a sad lack of time:
Will and Hannibal killing Alana. I’m one of the rare around here in that I actually can’t stand her and want to see her killed. Oops, my Hannibal bias is showing.
Will gets taken by another killer and Hannibal has to save him. Flip side, Hannibal gets taken and Will has to save him.
Season 1-ish, but Will knows Hannibal is the Ripper. He still works for Jack, but has made Hannibal stop for the time being. Someone starts copycat murders of the Ripper and Will has to find out who, while simultaneously wondering if it’s really a copycat, or Hannibal being Hannibal.
Will uses Hannibal as his own personal weapon. “Kill this person for me.” “I want heart tonight, love, do your thing.” And Hannibal is a happy murder puppy.
Incarcerated Murder Husbands that have to be kept in adjoining cells because they will just keep killing people otherwise. I don’t care how many times this has been done, it is my fave thing ever.
Bedelia’s dinner, except Will makes Hannibal fuck him where she can hear because Will is a catty bitch and no one can tell me otherwise.
That feeling when you start a new show after having your heart and soul torn apart by the last one and you can already feel yourself getting obsessed and you’re just like ‘oh no am i really going to do this to myself again’ but then jumping into the future grave of your feelings whole heartedly like
“that thing with Cassandra and Jenkins came out of nowhere!!”
are u sure
I hope this isn’t seen as confrontational. I think shipping wars are silly, ship what you want to ship! This show has always been wonderful about making any and all ships probable. I don’t ship things often and, of the things I do ship, this was probably the one I thought was least likely to be acknowledged. But they did!! I was shocked and delighted! Just as I was delighted that they fully acknowledged Cassie being non-hetero.
Cassandra has always been the one to notice when something is bothering Jenkins. Being the caretaker, Jenkins notices when any of them are upset, but it’s hard to deny he has a soft spot for Cassie. He’s comfortable enough to be silly with her (”you know what this makes me want to do? It makes me want to go ‘hmmm…’”). Cassandra is always first to jump at the opportunity to help him and is incredibly eager to do so. (That scene where Jenkins was tossing books down to the boys from the balcony and she was running about trying to catch them first, then Jenkins walked down and handed her one.) They have a great deal of mutual respect and make an excellent team.
I just wanted to point out that this ship is just as valid as the others and, in fact, has had just as much subtext as the others. They handled the situation perfectly, and Jenkins reacted exactly as I’d expected him to. He feels it would be improper, all but saying he’d feel he was taking advantage, but he let her down without being condescending (knowing Cassie is more than capable of handling herself) or dismissive of her feelings.
I hope the subject is brought up again, I hope they talk about it more. Though no matter what happens I hope Cassandra is happy, because sometimes the way people in the fandom pull her back and forth with everyone makes me a bit uncomfortable. Ship all the things, but remember Cassandra is her own person and not a vehicle for a ship! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
