"I realize I have a lot of amazing opportunities, but I don’t know how you can play a human being going through real human experiences without being able to walk down the street. If you can’t live areal life, how do you play a real person?”

Hannibal is light years ahead of everything else on television.
Like it is so good it shouldn’t even be called television.
There is no word for how amazing this method of entertainment is.
I have it.
Let’s all write a letter to Bryan Fuller that says
"Hello. I love your work."
YEAH LET’S DO IT
IT’S BEING DONE
friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes unnecessary. give me confused reactions from people who already assumed the two of them were dating. give me arguments over what counts as an anniversary because should we start at the date we met or the date we became friends or the date we got over our stupid selves and finally started kissing?
give me stories that show the line between friends and lovers is a really, really thin one - that appreciating the friendship that two characters share doesn’t mean you can’t ship them really damn hard too. that you can keep all the awesome friends-being-assholes-to-each-other stuff and add on all the shippy stuff to get something extra special awesome.
give me all of that.
give me romantic relationships based on genuine platonic affection. give me sex that is made better and more meaningful by the fact that the participants don’t just want each other, they want each other to be happy. give me layers and layers of complex emotion stacked on top of each other when you ask one person how they feel about the other. give me characters who will support the things their lovers believe in because their lovers are also their friends. give me three-dimensional characters understanding each other in three-dimensional ways.
give me fictional relationships that reflect the kinds of relationships we want and should have. give me stories that will change lives for the better.
