I do realize that all i do on this tumblr anymore is seesaw between Hannibal feelings and yelling at assholes
and I’m not sorry
We are her fathers.
no need for DNA tests now
Yes, I’m sure you can dumb down the complexities of patriarchy and male entitlement to liberal vs conservative men, that’s useful
and anti-sex work, anti-porn, anti-kink, “feminism is not about your silly choices” radfems that shame people for enjoying *gasp* heterosexual sex can’t really pretend to respect women’s agency
I know what monsters are…you’re a victim
um hannibal i don’t think that’s how parenting works
Abigail though, guys
Can we all start piecing together some meta on the Murder Family beyond who’s going to sleep with whom (not that we can’t all find that discussion interesting)?
I want to take the time to focus on the adults here, which means leaving Abigail out for now (because goodness knows she could fill a post on her own). In one corner, we have Hannibal and Will playing ‘dad,’ and in the other corner we have Alana inadvertently playing the role of ‘mom’ and Freddie as ‘Abigail Jr’:
I’m beginning to suspect that each of these characters has a trait specific to Abigail’s family, and that we might start to see some of these dynamics play out in the future. Perhaps we’ll even see some creepy form of actualization unfold, where the Hannibal cast experiences a situation very similar to the ending of Amuse Bouche.
Hannibal is clearly manipulating Abigail. I do not for a second believe that he has any true emotions set aside for poor young woman other than intrigue. She is a tool in his box, and he’s using her to tinker with Will and co. at the BAU. This is a trait that Garrett possessed and one that was just revealed to us. Just as Abigail’s father used her to collect his victims, Hannibal is using her to further his plot.
