I heartily disagree. Hannibal is just about the only show where female nudity is either functional (Margot, Freddie) or artistic (corpse of Cassie Boyle), but male nudity is eroticized to hell and back (Will Graham panting in bed in soft clingy unmentionables)

I remember reading somewhere that the reason Freddie was shown first as naked was because she was so open with what she is, that she IS out to get a story, that she IS a reporter who will go to any length to get what she wants, that she is not ashamed of that.

Also keep in mind all you see of her, naked, are her shoulders and collarbone. Wow. Much nudity. Her nakedness is not sexual, it is merely nakedness, it is how people look when they get out of the shower.

She is not used as a luring sex object here, she is shown as someone who presents the image of an open book without fear, and has a much darker agenda behind it all = Freddie Lounds.

We may not have been introduced to Will Graham fresh out of the shower, but we did get to see him IN the shower in the very first episode.

See. I fucking LOVE that Freddie was introduced the way she was. Her nudity wasn’t for the audience. If it was, it would have been some kind of awkwardly posed sequence where you almost see her nipples and crotch but not quite (teehee). Instead her nakedness is matter-of-fact. She isn’t posed to seduce anyone. Her appearance isn’t a performance for the audience (at least not in the usual way that female bodies are used as fanservice/decor). She just got out the shower and is more interested in her website than putting on clothes. That’s it. Her nakedness makes a point because this is a TV show where all visuals have some symbolic impact, but it is for her character rather than being purely for the audience.

Val was adopted. Her dad, lovely though he was, wasn’t really her dad. She didn’t know who really was though, and her dad was kind, even if she refused to call him “dad”.
She’d never known why he’d fought so hard adopt her. She was the weird kid at the foster home, the one weird stuff happened around, the one who’d managed to warn Gemma that there was an adder by her foot, and managed to tease the adder away. 
(She made things vanish too, though she didn’t know where they went. She could get them to come back, sometimes.)
But Dudley had fought for her, said that yes, the other children were perfectly lovely but Valerian Makepeace was something else, something, he said, pointing to her empty file, no other parents had seemed prepared to accept.
Val was a child Dudley Dursley fought to adopt, and adopt her he did. When things went missing he was never angry. When odd things happened he never demanded to know what had occurred. When the snake crawled up his leg and only Val could get it off he just nodded and said, “just like Harry you are.”
She didn’t really know who Harry was. 
But when, that summer, the year she turned 11, an owl landed on her windowsill, holding a letter in its beak, Dudley smiled. “Just like Harry you are,” he said again.
He explained about magic - or what little he could. Explained how his cousin - no, he wasn’t in contact with Harry much anymore, just that odd moving Christmas card each year - could do magic. Explained how there was a place in London, Diagonally, where she could get the things on the list, if she wanted to go.
Val wanted to go.
Dudley sent a letter to his cousin. The address (Godric’s Hollow, what a funny name, Val thought) neatly written and the letter quickly responded to. A barn owl (named Wendelin, apparently) came with a letter saying to go to a particular corner in London, where Harry would meet them.
Meet them he did, him and his whole family, and extended family, red head after red head, and Harry standing dark haired among them all, two dark haired boys, bickering beside him.
"Val are you?" he said, bending a bit so his eyes, dancing and green, were at her height. "It’s alright, I didn’t know what was going on when I was told. You’re a witch. Have you ever done strange things before?"
Val nodded because she had, though she’d always hesitated to call them magic.
"It’s alright. Would you like me to show you how to do something else strange?"
Val nodded because this was an adult not just, as dad did, accepting the strangeness, but asking for it. When she tapped the bricks, lifted by Dudley so she could reach the top one, she didn’t expect anything to happen.
But they moved.
Behind her the army of redheads cheered, and as her dad lifted her down and touched a kiss to her hair she smiled, properly, widely, as she handed the wand back.
She knew what she was now.

Holy shit, this is the greatest

Okay, so, I’m running on the assumption that people are taking this seriously. If not, my bad.

THIS IS INCREDIBLY NOT WHAT HAPPENED
AT ALL

This woman’s name is Amy, and she owns a bakery/restaurant called Amy’s Baking Company. Not only do they serve the customers store-bought food under the pretense of it being gourmet and house-made, but they treat their customers absolutely terribly. This woman once chased two guys out of her restaurant because they had decided to leave after waiting 2 HOURS FOR THEIR FOOD. SHE WAS PISSED BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T PAY FOR IT. IT’S ALSO PROBABLY GOOD TO MENTION THAT SHE DOESN’T LET THE SERVERS HAVE TIPS, WHICH IF YOU’VE NEVER WORKED AT A RESTAURANT, MEANS THAT THEY GET PAYED FAR BELOW MINIMUM WAGE. AT THE TIME OF THE KITCHEN NIGHTMARES EPISODE, SHE AND HER HUSBAND OPENLY CONFESSED TO FIRING OVER A HUNDRED EMPLOYEES IN FIVE MONTHS. GORDON RAMSAY GAVE UP ON HER.
THIS WOMAN IS NOT A FEMINIST HERO
SHE IS A BATSHIT CRAZY FUCKING PSYCHOPATH
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME, WATCH THE EPISODE ON YOUTUBE.

Ok sorry for commenting but this woman really is crazy. I went there once and she chewed mmy dad out for “being incredibly rude to her and her husband” and things along that linebuT THIS FUCKING WOMAN OK. SHE WAS YELLING AT HER EMPLOYEE TO WORK FASTER AND TO STOP BEING AN IDIOT AND SHE WAS TREATING THEM BADLY SO WHAT SOES MY DAD DO? HE LOOKS AT HER AND SAYS “STOP BEING A BITCH HE’S WORKING AS HARD AS HE CAN GIVEN THE WORKING CONDITIONS IN SCOTTSDALE OK?” AND SHE WENT OFF ON MY DAD BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT HE WAS BEING A DOUCHE AND NO, NO NO NO HELL NO HE WAS NOT. YOU DON’T PUT YOUR EMPLOYEES DOWN IN FRONT OF CUSTOMERS EVEN IF YOU’RE PISSED.

how can people actually believe this holy shit. Go watch the kitchen nightmares episode she is fucking psycho I swear to god.

Watch it here. LEARN HOW INSANE SHE IS. SHE IS HIDEOUS.

"Patriarchy is at it again.” O god, looks like someone learned a new word.

MisSpelled is the tale of five very different young women who must learn to work together after they mysteriously acquire magical powers.

The girls will have to save themselves and each other from their own magical mistakes. A dark comedy with lives on the line, MisSpelled is a thrilling and comical journey for five young women who aren’t necessarily down for the ride. With a new dark presence growing in power, will they be able to save themselves from impending doom? They don’t know, but they can google it.

An exciting adventure with mystery, murder and magic! MisSpelled is not your typical witch show. With a diverse cast, comedy and thrilling twists — MisSpelled is something you need to see to believe. 

Y’all. Remember how excited we were about MisSpelled? “A new show about witches? Witches of colour, even?? And it’s not even my birthday, or Halloween!!”

Well, they’ve posted everything they’ve got to youtube — a promologue, and four episodes — and now they’re running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the rest of the series. If it’s not successful, then we don’t get any more of the show. Which would suck.

I am asking you guys — begging you, even — to go support the Kickstarter if you can. If every one of my followers pledged $20, then they’d be funded immediately. But even if you can only spare $5, that still gets you thanks on the website and a download of the music from the show!

There are several $12 Charm Bag Tiers, each based around a different character. The charm bags include a tarot card with the character on it (you can see an in-progress sketch of some of the art for the cards in the photoset), a bloodstone, a spell written by the character, and some charms.

And for $20, you can pick a charm bag, get thanked on the site, download the music and the first season after its finale.

Even if you can’t pledge, signal boost this. Go watch the show on youtube. Tell everyone! We have 19 days and counting to make this a success.

Fly my pretties~

The bits of MisSpelled I’ve see have delighted me, and I really want to see them succeed. Please help spread the word about their Kickstarter, and back it if you can!

TAG GAME: CHARACTERS WHO SHARE THE SAME PERSONALITY TYPE AS YOU

If you don’t know your personality type, take the test here.

Rules: Find out what characters share the same personality type as you here and list the characters that you find relevant below. Then tag five friends and let them know you tagged them!

I got INFP this time with a nice portion of “turbulence.” Awesome. Here’s some characters:

  • Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Jason Todd (Robin II/Red Hood) from Batman
  • Terry McGinnis from Batman Beyond
  • Tara from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Leeloo from The Fifth Element
  • Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
  • Tavros Nitram from Homestuck
  • Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon
  • Bran Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones
  • Luke Skywalker from Star Wars
  • Sweeney Todd from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

I’m rather horribly amused thatSweent Todd and Jason Todd are in the same list as Luna Lovegood. 

Anyhow. If you want to do it, go ahead.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
