Hannibal Lecter + leading a healthy physically active lifestyle cannibals need exercise too

alanabloomsperpetualangryface:

So hey, howdy, hello. This is Kat and today I got to meet my effective hero and literally gush over how very much she means to me, in all her acting and her wonderful and her concern and enthusiasm for her own character.

So my friend and I get to PaleyFest and we have second-viewing room seats, but we’re like legitimately like three hours early. They start letting people in and we’re among the first, maybe, four people there. We rush in and after a few minutes a woman comes around and she’s like ‘hey? You guys are some of the first ones here— and I can’t promise anything but I can try to get you guys into the main panel room. I’m seeing a few empty seats.’ So enthusiastically my buddy and I are all HELLFUCKYEAH and we head downstairs. BLESS. WE GET INTO MAIN PANEL ROOM. We meet this rad girl there, and she’s fourteen, and she keeps telling us enthusiastically about how important Alana Bloom and Dhavernas are to her, and I’m like totally enchanted and practically in tears to be hearing that because she sounds like me at 12/13 talking about why Clarice Starling is my hero. Alana Bloom is to a kid what Clarice Starling was to me when I was small and that’s all I ever wanted to know. 

So we’re anxiously sitting there with a buttload of Fannibals (say what one wants about this fandom, solidarity is a great feeling), we wait for Dancy, Mikkels, Fishburne, Dhavernas, and Fuller. Introductions go through, Panel starts. They’re fucking hilarious and Fishburne is so funny I could practically die. Mikkelsen gives not one fuck, and at a point someone brings the brass monkey from Wonderfalls and Caroline stops a whole sentence to go OH MY GOD THE BRASS MONKEY and point like an enthusiastic little girl.

So the panel ends and I’m planning to head outside before at the bottom of the steps I see Dhavernas chilling, talking to said fourteen year old friend. A line starts forming little by little and my friend and I shoulder through the current to the bottom of the steps. She’s gorgeous, so little. 

So I finally get up to her and I like feel that eyebrow-creasing emotion-face start to happen, and I tell her, ‘I just wanna thank you for everything you do. I speak for myself and a lot of people who have told me to tell you that the work you do on Hannibal is inspiring to all of us, and Doctor Bloom is truly a good, kind, inspirational, caring bright spot in a very dark world, and that brings me a lot of hope as a person. It’s important to have characters like that, and it means the world to me that you portray it. I’m kind of an Alana Bloom dweeb. I— uh, my phone case,’ Which is, incidentally, an Alana Bloom, and I turn it over to show her. She yanks it out of my hand and lovingly strokes her own visage on my case, staring up at me with this look of wonderment like ‘holy shit people love me this much?’ It’s the biggest ‘that’s so cool’ look I’ve ever seen a celebrity give.

Alana Bloom means a lot to me. She reminds me to be kind to myself, she talks me down from a lot of ledges, and she gives me hope that I can be the best version of myself she would probably see me as. She’s kind in the face of adversity, and good in the face of violence, and that is so important. Telling stories about characters who are kind and caring in a world where cruelty would benefit further is so important. Telling stories about sympathy triumphing over the easier path, the darker one, is so important. 

So because I cannot stop, I’m like ‘and thank you, a lot, a lot, for Vicky Keller. She— you inspired me to write a novel. Like, a literal novel.’ And she’s all ‘No! No way— really? Wow. Vicky Keller?’ And I’m all ‘Over/Under!’ To which she goes ‘Vicky! Oh, I played her! Fun Vicky! We filmed that right here!’ And what an asshole, I go, ‘Oh yeah, I recognized. I’ve lived here— uhhhh, my whole life.’ 

So the entire time she’s taking selfies she just keeps going ‘No, over here, this light is totally terrible’. And she’s practically repositioning everybody. Somebody mentions the tv show Girls and how her wardrobe on Hannibal is very similar, so I hear her say that ‘She loves Girls, and it got her through a really not-so-good time in her life when she didn’t feel good about herself at all, and it gave her a lot of confidence’. Gosh. Gosh. Man, I hope somebody reminds you how great you are. What a kind, sweet, loving, genuine person, and so attentive, and interested. So yeah, this, this was everything. And I hope she remembers that a shit-ton of people sat back to tell her how great Alana Bloom was and that Alana Bloom, she makes a difference.Also, in person, her eyes are fanfiction blue. 

Most psychology departments are filled with personality deficients.

Dr. Bloom would be the exception.

Well, Clarice - have the lambs stopped screaming?

THIS IS HANNIBAL LECTER LOOKING AT ALANA BLOOM GODDAMMIT

THIS IS HIM TELLING HER THAT HE WOULD SPARE HER IF SHE WALKS AWAY GODDAMMIT

HE ISN’T CRYING OVER WILL HERE GODDAMMIT

HE ‘LOVES’ OTHER PEOPLE TOO GODDAMMIT

HE NEVER LOVED ALANA, GODDAMIT

HE USED ALANA, GODDAMMIT,

THIS ISN’T EVEN THE MOMENT HE WAS TALKING TO ALANA, GODDAMIT,

WERE YOU EVEN WATCHING THEW SAME SHOW AS THE REST OF US, GODDAMMIT? 

'HE NEVER LOVED ALANA GODDAMIT

HE USED ALANA, GODDAMMIT’

…………….

Mads: “He enjoys being with Alana and he likes her a lot, but it’s also something that he has to leave” [x]

"No, he wasn’t using her[….] so yes, he definitely, definitely cared about Alana" [x]

"I think he’s a little surprised about how much some of these people mean to him at this point. There’s not only Will, but there’s also Jack and Jack’s wife … and Alana. What he eventually has to do is obviously much harder for him to do now that he’s come to like these people so much" [x]

Q: But he also seems to have true affection for her.

Bryan: “Absolutely. I think in the scene in “Sorbet”, where Alana is essentially functioning as Hannibal sous chef and getting ready for his dinner party, we suggest a history of those two characters and a slight manipulation on Hannibal’s part to remove Alana from the Chesapeake Ripper investigation. And that was very much about not wanting to hurt her if she got too close or got too insightful. So he conspired to keep her busy so she couldn’t be Miriam Lass in that investigation, and that was very much about protecting her.” [x]

(hence my use of ‘love’ in apostrophes)

+ a ton of other reasons that a bunch of us have written about since before Futamono

'THIS ISN’T EVEN THE MOMENT HE WAS TALKING TO ALANA, GODDAMIT'

I would know since I gifed it, the exact moment mine is from is right after Alana pulls the trigger on him

and please don’t tell me that’s not a sad look on his face because I’m pretty sure it is (and why would he be pretending the charade’s over now and he’s being honest with her)

'WERE YOU EVEN WATCHING THEW SAME SHOW AS THE REST OF US, GODDAMMIT?'

I believe I was. I actually wonder the same thing about others sometimes.

A friendly reminder up there that all that means Hannibal Lecter was going to allow Alana Bloom to be ‘the one that got away’ in spite of her choosing the brave thing. A friendly reminder that Hannibal Lecter tucked a blanket over her while she was sleeping gently when he had no reason to manipulate her as she was not awake or aware. A friendly reminder that in that moment she says 'STOP' and he freezes like her words were the bullets, themselves. If you don’t think that’s heartbreak in his eyes while she’s looking at the monster instead of the man, if you don’t think that isn’t the heartbroken monster right there, then you can fuck right off. This isn’t about Will Graham. Everything else apparently is, but this is a trust shattered between two people who loved each other so much it actually probably tailored the ‘human suit’ Hannibal wears daily, and it’s strongly likely that Alana Bloom was the one who inadvertently helped him sew it.
