HAPPY HANNIGRAM DAY!
I’m going to answer the questions posted by @the-winnowing-wind for Hannigram Day!
We, the fannibals, have declared August 22 to be hannigram day!!! If you want to add to the festivities but don’t know what to post, consider answering the following questions! I tag EVERYONE to play!!!
I was actually watching Hannibal in a vacuum outside of the fandom for the first 3-4 times, but it wasn’t far into the first season when I started realising that our two lovely boys really just weren’t behaving like typical ‘friends’ ;P (Did you just smell me…We’re her father’s now… Hannibal’s shining cannibal eyes of love when he realised Tobias didn’t kill Will…etc. etc. etc.) It was a slow-ish build for me, but past the first season Hannigram was undeniable! I didn’t hear the word Hannigram until I joined Tumblr but I shipped them HARD from really early on.
2. What was your last thought about Hannigram?
By last thought do you mean the EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY thoughts I have about Hannigram? Seriously, they’ve taken over my brain XD I guess the things I think about them the most are about their reciprocity. Most of my fics revolve around that in some way…the way that power and influence and love flows between them.
3. What was the first episode where /you/ started to ship the ship?
Honestly, probably from the first episode in a way. But it was a slow build. Little things compiling on little things for a chunk of the first season. But even from that first breakfast in the hotel room, the way Hannibal made Will laugh, and how he looked at him…those two didn’t stand a chance!
4. Do you ship a Hannigram AU? Which one is your favorite!!!
Honestly, I ship them all if they’re well written! I have a specific love of Tristhad and Spacedogs like the rest of us but Basic Chickens, Streunsex, Royal Instinct… the list is endless in the hands of this talented fandom!
5. Have you created anything for Hannigram? If so, what’s your favorite thing done? If not, what’s your favorite thing seen?
Everything I write is Hannigram! I haven’t attempted any other pairings yet, although I’d like to try my hand at an ABO Tristhad. Hmmm, favourites are hard…
I really enjoyed writing my piece And Cure His Heart for #JustFuckMeUp and my very recent fic for #BottomHannibalDay Give and Take was also super fun. I’m pretty proud of my piece for the @radiance-anthology but you’ll just have to wait for it to come out before you read it! ;P
6. Do you remember your first Hannigram fic/art piece?
The first ever Hannigram anything I saw the beautiful manip below that popped up on Pinterest before I found Tumblr. I almost DIED! (I still can’t find who did it, anyone know?)
Once I found Tumblr, there was just so much Hannigram I didn’t know what to do with myself. The first fic I fell in love with was the gorgeous Marriage series by @fragile-teacup which I found after reading her unbelievably amazing Drabbles. Do yourself a favour and READ THEM!
7. Favorite Hannigram quote?
This is really hard, but I’ll probably go with “If I saw you every day, forever, Will, I would remember this time.” Or “Did you believe you could change me the way I changed you?…I already did.” I could keep going of course, but those are classics.
8. Favorite Hannigram memory?
If that’s moment in the show, that’s even HARDER! I mean, I feel like you have to put Mizumono and The Wrath of the Lamb aside to even be fair…but the entire final scene in Su-Zakana was so amazing, and when they met again at the Ufizzi. My heart is just swelling and breaking even as I type this!
9. It’s almost 2 years since TWOTL - what do you think Will and Hannibal
are planning for that day?
Maybe they saved a few pieces of the Dragon to eat on their anniversaries, like people do with wedding cakes! I like to believe that they’re planning nothing more than staying in bed all day…with breaks for delicious food of course. ;P But a commemorative hunt would also seem pretty appropriate!
