im not in pr or a publicist so clearly i have no idea how to do it… but what amy said haha…
end his stunts, he goes ghost for a while… he comes back himself. selling him and his personality. i know that we see a lot of his personality now anyway when he talks in interviews, but it’s also riddled with things we know arent him. and to be honest, all the boys have been sold as a certain image for so long, i think a lot of people dont know/forget who they really are deep down. so it would be amazing to see all those public images and public personalities stripped back to show the real raw them.
you can literally tell that hes been media trained and curbed so much over the years… he holds back with his words and his actions and opinions. i dont wanna see that. i dont wanna see him being restricted with his opinions and his personality. i wanna see all the reasons why we love louis without all the extra shit… just hit us with the sassy, joking, quit witted, funny (seriously he was ‘the funny one’ during the xfactor), loving, defending the ones he cares about louis.. and add anything else we havent seen yet that hes been told to hide.
Louis did promo for Just Hold for most of his days in LA in January and February. The ten days in March are after Louis was arrested, when he was “hiding” in his house and there were paparazzi allegedly stalking his door. We never saw Louis leave to visit Freddie or the Js bringing Fred to see him, and we’re supposed to believe the paps were stalking him so badly that they even caught him getting Starbucks.
I think it’s safe to say the whole “Louis uprooted his life to LA to be with his son” argument is over. I don’t understand how people believe he sees him at all.
So…you expect me to believe that Klaus wakes up a few years down the line and finds out one of his oldest and best friends is dead and that they’ve started a school at the old SALVATORE boarding house and that had nothing to do with the letter? I mean of course not. Why would he hit on his old friends wife when she’s still grieving her husband. Or donate money to a school in Stefan’s old house?
I am a very, very anxious person. I suffer from it, actually. And, sometimes, I get really hung up on stuff like… well, like BUGHEAD. Can’t help it. They’re the best.
That being said, I have ZERO worry about Thursday! Like, are you guys actually worried? Betty and Jughead are so heading for Epic Smoochville, Population: 2!
All I’m worried about is how much on-screen smooch / I love you time they’re going to give the two.
The tweets, etc. are purposely NOT showing you what you (well, what many of you) want because they LOVE that you’re so invested in this relationship they’ve been working so hard on. They eat that up! They want your reactions in the tweets (as long as you keep them respectful, of course).
How do you want S4 to be? Hannigramatic? How so? Do you believe they'll still be angsting or would have been mellowed a but? :D
My ideal for S4 (or 4, 5 and 6, for that matter–I’m not too particular on the time frame, so if Bryan wants to draw it out over more than one season, more power to him) is for Will to learn who he is: the limitations of him being a killer, that he’s NOT cut out for Hannibal’s lifestyle even if he tries, that no matter how beautiful he may have felt killing by Hannibal’s side was, it doesn’t sustain him and is only one aspect of the creature that he is.
This is why I asked @existingcharactersdiehorriblyto ask the question that she did at RDC3, which was more or less a S4 question, disguised. S3 left us with a truly borderline Will Graham, one who had both finally accepted himself as a killer and sentenced himself to die for it, and Bryan has talked about how a future season of Hannibal would show Will truly on the other side of the wall for the first time, with his “tether” cut. So if that’s where they start him, then where do they intend to go? What’s the final destination? That disagreement between Hannibal and Bedelia, which was left somewhat open-ended in S3, seemed like it presented an opportunity to take the temperature of the writer’s room on the matter, so to speak. The answers they gave were exactly the answers I hoped and suspected that they would give, indicating both a dedication to Will’s duality (on Hugh’s part) as well as a remembrance of and dedication to his heroism (on Bryan’s part). Bryan’s answer is especially encouraging because he’s the one who holds the vision for the future and the direction the story would take for Will.
In conjunction with Will truly learning who he is, I also want to see Hannibal finally coming to accept this fact also. Sometimes I just want to ask Bryan and Mads, “Hey, do you think it could ever occur to Hannibal that if he wants to be with Will that maybe–MAYBE–he should stop trying to change Will and just maybe work on, oh, I dunno…CHANGING HIMSELF?”
I’m not necessarily holding my breath for this particular revelation to ever occur to Hannibal, or that the tiger could change its stripes if it did occur to him. But the course of the story that’s been told so far, from Hannibal’s side, has been about his gradual release of control in spite of his absolute reluctance to let go. I remember Hugh saying in some interview way back when something about how Hannibal wanted to control their relationship, but in the end it’s Hannibal who is willing to burn the world to the ground for Will, and that puts Will in control. I want to see a continuation of that.
S1 was about how Hannibal nearly got caught because he began taking risks for Will and Abigail, but he put Will in prison instead, to preserve his life and lifestyle and freedom. So he maintained his control. But S2 saw him begin the process of gradually dismantling everything in his life for Will. First the Chesapeake Ripper got sacrificed, along with Miriam Lass, his “get out of jail free” card. Then he gave up his anonymity and prestige and cushy life in Baltimore to go on the run for Will. When that didn’t work out, he could recreate those things somewhat, but then he chose to give them up again, along with his freedom–the very thing that he’d held back from giving up in both S1 and S2, that caused all this mess in the first place. Through all this, though, Hannibal has maintained a steadfast belief that Will is that mirror image of him, and so the one integral thing that he hasn’t given up is that slight lie that he’s told himself. That is the one aspect of their relationship that he has absolutely clung to, and it has controlled the nature of the relationship: that not only is Will a killer, but that bringing this out in him is the best thing for him.
I want to see Hannibal and Will both learn that Hannibal has been, to some extent, telling them both a lie. And I want to see Hannibal accept it, and love Will anyway. I want his love to truly become unconditional.
I’d like to see Will’s coming to a truer understanding of himself through Hannibal’s influence and mentoring as the “continuation” of their relationship that Bryan talked about, and Hannibal finally coming to understand the limits of his vision for Will as the “subversion/inversion” of it.
I’ve always held deep love and appreciation for Easter. It inspires me and moves me. For me, it has nothing to do with bunnies, eggs, or baskets of goodies (or at least not since childhood). I celebrate it with resurrection in mind. My savior died for me, which is the greatest gift in my eyes. I know not everyone believes like I do. Some reading this will laugh and think I’m certifiable, and that’s fine…you’re entitled to your beliefs like I’m entitled to mine. I am too in awe of the sacrificial miracle to let this day of remembrance slip by without expressing my gratitude for the time when death was overcome. Reflecting on that always fills me with great hope and a sense of possibility. Because if death can be overcome, then surely anything life throws at me can be!
Happy Easter, for those who celebrate! Happy Sunday, for everyone else!
