Mads Mikkelsen favorite characters 5/5: Jacob

Toronto, october 2013 [x]

I feel like the pictured woman’s comment at the source is worth adding:

Unbelievable beautiful day in Toronto. I’ve met my favorite actor at a street light. He was biking, we were walking. We told him how much we admire him both as an actor and as a person. I said: you are a socialist like us. He replied: I’m trying. Isn’t he just awesome?”

Yes, yes he is.





I’m beginning to think ideology is the problem, not the solution

It will always be a problem in the way of a solution.  As a friend of mine puts it, “When you have an ideology about animal rights, eventually it will tell you to murder puppies and kittens.”  Because that’s what happens when you operate in that kind of closed idea-system — it’ll eventually tell you to do the exact opposite of what you set out to do.  It’s impossible for it to do otherwise.  And generally it’ll tell you a lot of other really horrible things besides.

PETA in fact *does* kill kittens and puppies: http://www.peta.org/blog/euthanize/

I know.  They’re a good example.

Anonymous asked: Hello Straggle, I'm sorry to bother you but do you have any more recs for Hannibal/Clarice?


Hi there, anon! It’s no bother. It’s been AGES, though, since I’ve read anything with that couple so I apologize in advance for the delay! Ok, lets see…

All of these fics are gonna come from Loving Lecter, because it’s the best site for Hannibal and Clarice fics period. Well, there might be some from FF.Net.

Sadly I don’t have it in me to properly scour FF.Net, where I know are more fics to rec. If and when you run out ask me again, anon!


Also, if I may: my favorites from FF.net are definitely Paper Trails by kalabangsilver and the Breaking Free//Playing House//Finding Peace trilogy by BookishGal. And the most popular Clarice/Hannibal fic on FF.net (and probably anywhere) is the No More a Savage Life trilogy by lovinghannibal (I find it to be a bit too OOC, but that’s me). Also, let’s all take a moment to bow down to lovinghannibal, because that series is 875,000+ words AND COUNTING. Anyone who devotes that many words to Clannibal is a quality human being. And off the top of my head, some other popular Clarice/Hannibal authors on FF.net are Demeter1973, MajorBachman, and duffie83.

There’s not very much Clarice/Hannibal on AO3, but I’ve found a few that I like: Broken Cups by jesuisherve, Let the Saints Go Marching Out, Then Let the Monster In by AquitaineQueen24, Who Are You Tonight? by black_lodge, and Farmer’s Market by livx18. (Those ones are all single-chapter fics). Then there’s a few Clarice/Hannibal ones that throw Will Graham into the mix, if you’re not completely averse to that: A Curious Mix of Onyx and Blood series by hannibalisms (Clarice/Hannibal/Will threesome), Catching Up With Old Cuts by samansucks (also a threesome), and Heart Tartare by gul, (this one switches between past Will/Hannibal and current Clarice/Hannibal, and is probably my favorite Hannibal fic ever, even though it includes Hannigram which isn’t really my thing, but god it’s just so beautiful. And angsty, mind you. But the fandom (and world probably, idk) would be a better place if everyone read this fic).

I wish I was better about bookmarking, because I’ve read so many more good ones that I probably could never find now. But oh well, here’s my little offering of Clarice/Hannibal goodness to the world today!



the Lecter/Murasaki fandom is just me and samiferist crying and pelting painful headcanons at each other.

with future disappointment sprinkled on top.

Have you read Ravenous? I keep coming across it as I browse older Hannibal fics and I’m wondering if I should read it.

Character files- Hannibal Lecter [x]

I see him as one of those pitiful things, sometimes born in hospitals. They feed it, keep it warm, but they don’t put it on the machines. They let it die. But he doesn’t die. He looks normal and nobody can tell what he is.
