You can brag all you want – I’m impressed EVERY EPISODE. Seriously. Seriously. I’m all like, oooh, I have to mention to Cavo how very awesome that was… and then I get distracted by the curve of Hannibal’s lips or something. (Good luck with that pic. DO WANT!!!) I’ll probably rewatch again and make you a list and embarrass you or something.

I eventually read lots of J2 as well. I was all, I’ll never read RPSLIE. SPN is the fandom that broke fandom. I would send you pics of me with the cast members, from Creation cons, but there’s enough of that on the internet already…

I have lots of thinky thoughts about Hannibal/Will. Which I’m sure will change. From what I’ve read of Red Dragon so far, Hannibal has feelings and Will acknowledges that Hannibal has feelings and is also a monster, so he’s not a typical anything, really. Which I find intriguing. (Can I say, when Will says in the book that “passion” was Hannibal’s downfall – sometimes the slash just writes itself…) I used to read lots of dark!fic when I was 19 or so, but I tend to get turned off by darkness for darkness’ sake now. I’m old. Bendingsignpost wrote a bottom!Hannibal fic (http://archiveofourown.org/works/929602), which is where my head is dwelling at the moment, but then Ben is flawless with characterization. I’m sure my idea of them will morph with time, which is kind of like the show, so I’m pretty excited for all the ideas. I basically get turned on by novelty and thinky thoughts and metaphor, which is why I love slash, but recs are so personal to me so it’s hard for me to share too much – but I will be sure to pass anything that blows me away :) Good writing will make me love anything and eat my words, it’s true, it’s true.

:) I’m happy you’re enjoying it so much. Like I’ve said, I was a big fan of the show before I got involved and now I’m just super excited. At the end of the season, they gave the cast a super sharp cooking knife with Hannibal on the side. so fancy and awesome.

Those lips…. yes…

Thanks for the rec – I like Bendingsignpost so I played with the cover generator plugin and made this: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=488591CF5D9E872AAM9HH4ZI6VPbEfA&v=3&ithint=photo%2c.jpg. I still need to get better at this, but I think that picture will probably end up on most of my Hannibal fics. :P

I have not gotten into RPS or J2 YET, but who knows. I keep getting surprised. Seems like I’ve gotten into EVERYTHING but omegaverse. Just some of that is too distracting for me and take me out. Maybe I just need to get used to the concepts a bit more and then I’m not redistricted/surprised?

That’s pretty sweet about the cons and meeting the cast! :O I wish I’d been a SPN fan back when I lived in Vancouver! What a wasted opportunity there.

And thanks for keeping me in mind. I know it can be personal to reveal the ones you like. I get that, so no pressure.

Oh,wow. I just finished that Hannibal fic, and now I’m all jittery and disoriented and practically crushed by feels.

just. Wow.
thx. THAT is how you do Hannibal …

I know, I love bendingsignpost!!! I have faith there are some amazing fics out there with characterization that makes the pairing work, even sexually/romantically. I’ll let you know. My head canon involves Will having some father issues involved with his fascination with Hannibal, and Hannibal falling/obsessing over Will and Will using that to lure him, but that’s practically canon at this point, so… fic writes itself.

I’ve been really amused since yesterday because I remember Shmiracles telling me about someone who makes covers for all her fics, and now I realize it’s you :) I am not visually artistically inclined, I only write (wordy fics and embarrassingly effusive feedback & letters). Or, I write. The “only” is just my issues showing. I also like Tumblr, but I spent too many years with the drama and fanwank on livejournal and so I don’t spend too much time on Tumblr unless I can find a friendly, drama-free place. So I’m glad Shmiracles sent me a link to your Tumblr, which I’m just warning you I may stalk, haha. I don’t post anything on mine (it’s at least two fandoms behind), but it exists. I whine alot about fandom, but that’s only because it owns my soul.

I’m really glad you liked the fic! I like th_esaurus too, I posted this one the other day and it really made sense for me: http://archiveofourown.org/works/848346

Cavocorax said

Ahahahah. Well, I try to add covers but there’s too much fic to do it all, but now that I have to go into all my fics and tag them on Calibre, I’m making the task that much more unlikely to finish by adding covers for all the ones I’ve read. :D Or, at the very least, my favourites of the ones I’ve read. I wish I were actually artistic but that’s about as creative as I get. :D I love that you write though ! Maybe someday I’ll get inspired to try and post it obscurely on the ao3, but… I doubt it.

And tumblr is fun but yes, I can see what you mean about drama. I’ve had to unfollow a few people for excessive diatribes about sexuality and feminism etc – I support their ideas but I just didn’t want to hear them when I was just looking for funny gifs of attractive people and yes I know how shallow that is. :P But if I want to get into intellectual debates about equality and whatever, I don’t go to tumblr. Follow away! So far I don’t do much but reblog everyone else’s stuff so I hope you’re not too disappointed.

random AO3 update:
but if you are one of the people that noticed mobi files weren’t able to open on your kindle recently, the issue is now fixed :)
(AO3 knew about it and was working on the fix.)
resume downloading as usual!

Yay! I just assumed it was my fault!

Hiiiii!!! :) I’m loving your nail art, it’s awesome.

That’s pretty awesome. How do you get the image transfers? Are they just printed images that you then glue onto your nails or are they some sort of fancy nail thing?

Shmiracles said

hey shadowfall :)
i buy “Grafix Clear Rub-Onz Inkjet Laser Film” online. it’s basically works like rub on letters and you can print or draw anything you want onto the transfer film. so i go through my saved fandom jpgs and just erase back grounds and shrink images down until they fit!
also i use fake nails so they are easy to paint/decorate and then just walk away while they dry. otherwise this would NEVER happen.
(i’m a big nail biter. my whole life. and this has been a great way to correct the habit.)

the tea nails i’m wearing today: http://shmiracles.tumblr.com/post/92455935023

This makes me want a colour printer so bad. :)

Off topic, but good job on quitting nail biting! I had almost stopped before my wedding but was back at it right away after. Now at almost 26 I have craze lines on the top and bottom tooth that I primarily bit with. Unsurprisingly, I’ve managed to quit cold turkey since noticing that. THIS is the real reason adults should have given me when telling me not to bite my nails!

FUN FACT: I seriously need there to be an actual Agent Coulson Lego figure so I can make him hold hands with my Captain America Lego figure. Little Steve is so lonesome. :(

i’m in full support of this agenda. !!

Also, apparently somebody wants to translate a story I’d totally forgotten I’d written into Russian. Sure?
