Yesterday after I posted my Hannibal Feels, I had the bestest time with other Fannibals (fans of the NBC show “Hannibal”) in the comments! I didn’t quite realize that there was such a big fandom. I haven’t really been part of one since Harry Potter. Even the RuPaul’s Drag Race fandom isn’t as big, apparently.
I was feeling pretty high on life right up until I saw my linkies I was posting on Facebook had a response from a friend of, “I find this show repulsive.”
Then I had to laugh, ’cause repulsive is sort of the point of a show centered around a cannibal. It’s not the same as when I watch one of their dippy family-friendly sitcoms and am repulsed by the sexism, genderism, homophobia, etc.
Just a couple of hours earlier davecrewe called something I said about feeding dogs undead skin to distract them more disturbing than the show on aquitainequeen‘s journal and I responded, “I probably shouldn’t take that as a compliment,” but was told, “That was meant as a compliment.”
Of course it was. Which is why from now on I’m only talking to Fannibals. Or something.
