Taking a break from crying about Hamilton, I was completely blindsided by the news about Bowie...

And today, watching Lazarus, I felt like this little girl, totally unable to cope with the reality of aging and death.

Our Hannibal watch continues apace, but we are deep in s2 prison territory, so there's not much relief to be found there, although Cleolinda tries...

And now I hear SMAP is breaking up?? The management needs to get their shit together and stop all this backstabbing of each other, ffs. The one thing that made me laugh when I was deathly ill with a cold recently was rewatching the SMAP Saiban. :(

On the Star Wars side of things, I'm totally enjoying all the OT3 fics!!! And the What if Ep III Were Good finally came out! I shall now edit my memories of these films accordingly...

Oh nooooo

I watched the first 3 episodes of Hannibal last night with [livejournal.com profile] lullabyeforyou and [livejournal.com profile] paranoid_ninja and it was so great!!!! We only really meant to watch one, but we just couldn't stop... Now Hannibal will have me even more in its grasp!!! I knew [livejournal.com profile] lullabyeforyou would like it because she writes about the same types of themes in her work, but it was hilarious how quickly she fell. Oh! I should check the Fanfare rewatch threads as we go! This will probably be a weekly thing.

I just realized how alike Will/Hannibal and Charles/Erik are.

Will is an empath, Charles is a telepath, they both isolate themselves to keep out the psychic impressions from other people.

Both are betrayed by Erik/Hannibal, who does things they can't forgive and takes away their beloved Raven/Abigail.

Erik and Hannibal do things that they recognize others would call immoral, but they view as moral according to their own morality. (The discussion of Hannibal's beautiful = moral vs. Will's moral = beautiful has been illuminating.)

Both pairings are driven apart by their differing moral codes even though they love each other.

And those differing moral codes are so fundamental to their relationship that I can't read fics where they truly agree philosophically (fulldark!Will or whatever). On the other hand, AUs are a great way of reducing the stakes of those differences so we can have a happy ending.
