Allydia AU: Allison and Lydia are fairy queens who rule and protect the forest together. They also spend a lot of time kissing and flolicking.
At 10PM London time, fans of the BBC series In The Flesh took to their social media streams to tell anyone and everyone (but especially the BBC) why they want this show to return for a third season. Using the hashtag #SaveInTheFlesh, fans tweeted up a storm about their favourite Partially Deceased Syndrome suffering characters.
#SaveInTheFlesh Social Media Sunday is an event that takes place on the last Sunday of every month and the aim, according to Tumblr user redeemed-from-the-earth, is “to demonstrate how much love for the show is out there and make sure the BBC knows it.” The last event was noticed by many of those involved in the production of In The Flesh and the fandom has grown a lot since then, after an active campaign to recruit fans.
I just posted a gifset that had this gif in it, so you’re probably like, “wtf are you doing??” Well, I wanna talk about this for a sec.
When I was taking the screencaps of this moment, I literally had to stop for a minute and do something else. The way he turns, and the expression on his face when he stops, is utterly chilling. I don’t usually find Hannibal to be a frightening show, per se, but this one simple moment is scary.
One of the things I’ve praised about Mads’ performance is how he makes Hannibal move in a very reptilian way. His body, his head, his neck—all very snake-like. This gif illustrates that perfectly. The thing he does with his neck. Is that real?! Is that Mads, or is that post-production computer magic??
NO ONE’S NECK SHOULD BE ABLE TO MOVE LIKE THAT. He moves so perfectly like some sort of cobra, and as his eyes sweep past the camera (just before he focuses on Bedelia, whose line of sight is higher than the camera’s focus) you get this sense of someone not entirely human. Someone cold and dangerous.
I honestly don’t know how much of that movement is Mads and how much might be computer stuff, but honestly. That look is all Mads, and I just gotta say—A+ well done wow boy howdy you are a scary motherfucker.
