Open discussion: Hannibal 2x11 "Ko no mono"

You get your discussion post early tonight, because


\o/ \o\ /o/ ~o~

(Gonna be a big night tonight. Interesting things may happen on Tumblr.)

Meanwhile, this week's new eyeshadows at Aromaleigh: Murder Basement, Tender Murder Caress, and Turducken (kind of)

ABATTOIR: "This shade is a muted copper frost with a strong blue duochrome shift." Of the three this week, it's the only one I haven't seen in person yet; duochrome is meant to pick up the blue from Beverly's flashlight. It really was called "Murder Basement" at first, except that we already have Murder Tie.

CHRYSALIS: "This shade is a soft greige with iridescent sparkle and shimmer. We like to think of this shade as a 'veil' to wear over other colors, or on its own as a delicate highlight." The eyeshadow post that turned into a paragraph of meta about Hannibal's human veil: you're welcome.

STARLING: "This shade is warm black frost with a strong orange/copper duochrome. Appears as a chocolate brown in photographs, must see in person!" It's true, I've swatched it in person myself. Somehow also manages to pick up a palette that the two movie Clarices have in common.

We just had a huge brainstorming session, so I don't quite know which colors are coming up next--or what the next three episodes will suggest.

As a side note, I have really not been doing so well with the medication adjustment, while still hanging in there--it's all migraines all the time right now, is the thing. However, I'm actually kind of glad that I ended up not recapping this season as it aired, given the controversy last week. At least I was spared having to deal with that, I guess. I feel like it'd be a good idea to pick up with recapping two weeks from now and walk through episodes 5-13 in the context of the season as a whole. And that way we can keep discussing the show into the summer and wind down from what I am 110% sure will be a soul-wrenching finale. It's not necessarily the way I'd want to do it next year (~*NEXT YEAR*~), but it seems like the best way to handle things this year, if people will still be interested.

"...if people will still be interested."

Yes. Definitely.

(And I'm sorry the migraines are a thing. They are, to understate, no fun.)

Looking forward to the recaps - it will be a nice way to revisit the season once it's over, when things are a little cooler and less intense. And hopefully you feel better soon - constant migraines sounds really bad. My husband is on some new medication which brings on light sensitivity and vision problems, and it's been a real adjustment for both of us.

Thank you for these open threads, they've been great! I'm looking forward to checking in tonight, though I won't be able to watch until quite a bit later.


On a somewhat (un)related medical note...

So my doctor changed my pain meds yesterday and phoned it into the pharmacy. I picked it up and took it and everything seemed fine until this morning when I realize that I'm not taking an anti-inflammatory, I'm taking an anti-psychotic for a man named Joshua.

After a lot of freaking out and many phone calls it turns out they gave me the right medication but put the wrong label on it.

Re: On a somewhat (un)related medical note...


Most definitely still interested! So happy we get another season!! Summer recaps would be the perfect thing to tide us over until then. :) I do hope you start feeling better, battling medication is just awful.

I was just thinking that your recaps would be a great way to stay entertained through the hiatus!

And of course, ...

I don't say this to rush or pressure you, but I am dying to read your recap of the scene where Hannibal pets a sheep and someone crawls out of a dead horse.

I admit, there have been scenes where I was shaking my fist at the heavens for being so behind. A lot of them were in that episode and in "Yakimono."

Ugh, I'm sorry to hear things aren't going well for you right now. I hope for swift improvement.

it seems like the best way to handle things this year, if people will still be interested.

I think I speak for all of us when I say "YES WE WILL STILL BE INTERESTED."

PS: My mother and I got a kick out of My Little Ravenstag's new career as a business card model. :)

I'm waiting for Amazon to grab Season 2 as well so yes, I'd LOVE to read the recaps while I'm waiting for Season 2.

Yes, summer recaps are a great idea. We'll need the support once the glow of YAAAYYY SEASON 3 fades a little, and you'll have time to mull it all over and put it in context. Hopefully, too, you'll feel better by then.

So is Tender Murder Caress one of the above colors or a forthcoming one? I LOVE my Ravenstag. Also looks great on dolls.

Tender Murder Caress = Chrysalis.


Hiatus-recaps vs. contemporary-recaps: both have excellent points in their favor (although with hiatus recaps, it's harder for you to be the lathe of fandom on LJ). The real joy is in the conversations we all have, not how closely they coincide with the episodes upon which they're based, so do what works for you, we'll enjoy the recaps more when we know they're not making you unhappy, it'll be a sparkly murder pony party in the comments.

Well, the thing is that I had something else I was working on plus ungood health; the recaps themselves weren't making me unhappy per se. I just realized last week that if I had been doing them, things might have gotten... unpleasant.

(I kind of wonder if everyone won't be talked out by then, though. There's been more conversation in these posts than I've been able to keep up with.)

my stomach is current killing me, so I can't have my usual pre-hannibal drinking. sadness... and I really hope this episode isn't too gross.

That's great, it starts with a wheelchair
Margot stare
Will's hair is not afraid

Eye of dead man, listen to the murder plan
Girl, serve your own needs, Alana has her own needs
Serve it up to Jack, cutting board, head whack
The squealing starts the feeling with the hogs, tied tight, fight?
Vitriolic murderholic, slam fight, red light
Feeling pretty psycho

It's the end of the season as we know it
It's the end of the season as we know it
It's the end of the season as we know it, and I feel fine.

Still interested!

Do you like receiving postcards while enduring migraines? I like sending them. Random stranger <3

I don't know about you guys, but I need a cigarette after that dining scene.

A. this is aweful

B. hannibal is going to have him eat his own face cause he killed will's baby? or he manipulated this so will wouldn't have a baby? argggg

Hannibal seems to have this thing with wanting to make other people into murderers.

When you get down to it his whole relationship with Will is based on him wanting to make him into his serial killer protege.

And I believe in the book Hannibal wanted Margo to kill Mason and kept pushing her towards that, for lack of a better answer. And she did.

Right now I can't believe I'm saying this but MAKE HIM EAT HIS OWN FACE. FACE-EATING BETTER HAPPEN IN THE NEXT EP.
