Never heard of the show?
Hannibal is a TV series from Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) created because he wanted to explore the relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham prior to where the books and films begin with it.
It’s gory, but psychological and more than anything, beautiful.
You’ll enjoy it if you’ve enjoyed things like Sherlockand Criminal Minds.

Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything.
“Are you feeling all right?” I asked her.
“I feel all sleepy, ” she said.
In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead.
The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her.
That was twenty-four years ago in 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her.
On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. I was unable to do that for Olivia in 1962 because in those days a reliable measles vaccine had not been discovered. Today a good and safe vaccine is available to every family and all you have to do is to ask your doctor to administer it.
It is not yet generally accepted that measles can be a dangerous illness.
Believe me, it is. In my opinion parents who now refuse to have their children immunised are putting the lives of those children at risk.
In America, where measles immunisation is compulsory, measles like smallpox, has been virtually wiped out.
Here in Britain, because so many parents refuse, either out of obstinacy or ignorance or fear, to allow their children to be immunised, we still have a hundred thousand cases of measles every year.
Out of those, more than 10,000 will suffer side effects of one kind or another.
At least 10,000 will develop ear or chest infections.
About 20 will die.
LET THAT SINK IN.
Every year around 20 children will die in Britain from measles.
So what about the risks that your children will run from being immunised?
They are almost non-existent. Listen to this. In a district of around 300,000 people, there will be only one child every 250 years who will develop serious side effects from measles immunisation! That is about a million to one chance. I should think there would be more chance of your child choking to death on a chocolate bar than of becoming seriously ill from a measles immunisation.
So what on earth are you worrying about?
It really is almost a crime to allow your child to go unimmunised.
Roald Dahl, 1986
NINETEEN EIGHTY SIX.
roald dahl was calling out the anti-vaccination movement as self indulgent bullshit //thirty god damn years ago//.
And this is only in recent history. I can’t imagine the numbers if we had data all the way back to 1986.
And thanks to anti-vaxxers, measles is back in the United States.
petition for julie andrews to play the next doctor and essentially just be an older time travelling mary poppins, who walks briskly through life with her flowery hat and parrot umbrella, trailing her companions with a firm but compassionate hand, dealing with bad guys not with violence or anger but by vaguely intimidating them with how calm she is and generally bewildering them until they agree to stop being dickbags.
#[muffled sounds of stephen moffat screaming in terror]#defeating daleks with a simple raise of her eyebrow and intimidating look#scaring cybermen with a deep sigh and a firm set of her mouth#the silence start running when she sets down her carpet bag and re adjusts her hat#oh can you imagine how much fun doctor who would be again [x]
Oh, the difference ten years makes.
i honestly needed to take like five minutes to calm down before reblogging this - i was screaming
WOAH I WAS NOT READY FOR THAT HOLY SHIT.
I read to all the comments first to build up suspense. Still didn’t prepare me.
OH MY GOD
IT’S SO AMAZING AND I WAS SO NOT PREPARED FOR THAT
I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT. MASH-UPS: YOU’RE DOING IT RIGHT!
Let us sing the songs of our people.
Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology. Hence, this list.
I tried to included as many cultural variants as I could find and think of. (Unfortunately, I was restricted by language. Some Russian creatures looked very interesting but I don’t speak Russian…) Please, add creatures from your culture when reblogging (if not already present). It took me a while to gather all those sites but I know it could be more expansive. I intend on periodically editing this list.
Of note: I did not include specific legendary creatures (Merlin, Pegasus, etc), gods/goddesses/deities and heroes.
