Last time on Hannibal: It was like this European fairy tale in which Will & Hannibal were snails in love? That sounds about right.
This time on Hannibal: All your weirdo side-faves, weirdoing together again.
Ok my friends we are going to have to level about something right up front here, and it is: I FUCKING LOVE FREDERIC CHILTON. Yes, yes I know he’s terrible, he’s awful — he’s a raging narcissist & sleezy & manipulative and I adore him, because….he’s just so terrible at everything? He’s like this derpy inept wolf and everything he does is hilarious to me. And then you go and have him played by Raúl Esparza, who has his slightly Hannibal-askew comedy tone so on lock that he’s like a masterclass in camp villain acting, and I’m lost. I love Chilts. You just need to know this because, well…..
Season 3, Episode 4: Aperitivo
The episode begins and it’s bang-on CHILTON TIME, a return to my darling despicable Frederick getting shot in the face. What’s that look like in slow motion and micro-detail? It’s gross, don’t worry about it. Let’s skip ahead to when he’s still gross, but like in an interpersonal way, and also aalliiiiiive.
I’m sharing a little peek of my new and improved room today, along with a very silly kitty called Bass and the book I’m currently reading. I’d planned to go out to take photos in my new blouse and old pinny but the weather just wasn’t in a cooperative mood that day! So I just squished the life out of Bass while my live-in BFF snapped a few photos.
A little about the blouse I’m wearing which was sent to me by Calae, an up and coming plus size brand recently launched online. I’ve talked before about the dearth of plus sizes in India, so it’s heartening to see retailers here wanting to cater to plus size women. To quote directly from the brand manifesto - Calae is a style driven line of clothing for the self assured curvy woman, with international standards, fits that fit, and sensible price points. The launch collection mostly has cute and super wearable tops including this summery floral blouse that I picked. Fitwise, the line runs very true to standard international (UK) sizing. I went with the 18 as I usually wear a UK18 in tops, and the fit is just as comfortable as I prefer with enough room for movement - especially in the upper arm which is where I struggle with most Indian brands. The range currently runs from size 16-24, and it’s my sincere hope that Calae expands their sizing upwards in the future. Overall I give them a solid thumbs up of approval.
Wearing: Blouse ℅ Calae // Cord pinafore from Primark // Bass not for sale ;)
Edit : Oh crap I forgot. This dude is for sale. I’ll be totally open to any sensible offers (considering going prices for a WK) through pm and would have no probs adding changes before he’s finished up, including the base.
Bit more work on my baby at last. Decided to ignore my previous idea to have white areas and went with
complete start black for the helm. Edge highlighting on the sword has
just started and it’s one of the last WIP segments still, it and the
grills, which needy a tidy pass and rehilight.
These photos really are not great and warped his colours a bit, but I am toooo tired to take proper ones! This is basically just an update :)
Jane never wrote of being depressed in the way Dr Johnson was when he spoke of his ‘black dog’, or Boswell with his low spirits and terror of death. Hers did not take that form. She would not allow herself to indulge anything she might label self-pity; and she never became clinically ill, as Cowper, who brooded on his own sinfulness and feared being cast out of God’s mercy, did. Cowper died in 1800; Jane loved his poetry, and gave some of his lines to Fanny Price to quote in Mansfield Park. Her account of Fanny’s permanent low spirits after a childhood trauma, and her very different account (in Sense and Sensibility) of Marianne unable to combat her misery and willing herself into serious illness, show how well she understood depression. And however she dealt with and controlled her own, it struck at the core of being: it interfered directly with her power to write. The great burst of writing of the late nineties simply came to a halt.
those “girls don’t like boys girls like _____” posts are silly why can’t we have all of them i like boys and i also like dragons and sensibly priced products and services i didn’t think it was an either or deal
