"The Favorite" by Omar Rayyan
Favorite what? Demon?!
Loving the fact that whatever it is is wearing a matching flower.
This is adoreable!
Even though, in the novel, Margot at this stage of the story really should be 6 years old— because when she first was in therapy with Dr. Lecter, she was a little girl, and she was horribly molested, and it was very, very dark—I didn’t want to tell that story, so we generalized the sadism of Mason Verger so it wasn’t a sexual sadism. It was more, this is a bad man who, like Hannibal, gets off on what people do under certain circumstances.
In the novel, she’s a very masculine character, who has had years of steroid abuse and is a lesbian, and it was unclear to me in the novel whether she was either transgender or a lesbian as a result of those horrible abuses and that horrible childhood and [Beat.] that’s not how transgenderism or homosexuality works. So I didn’t want to contribute to that misconception of what it is to be transgender or a gay woman.
It was important for her to have a strength to her and the idea of the reason she’s going into therapy not being because she was this victim of horrible abuse. Which she is, in a different way. She grew up with a sadist, who was incredibly cruel and will be even more cruel in the future, but I like the idea that she’s in therapy because she tried to kill him, as opposed to because she was so victimized, that she had taken an active role in her victimization and had enough, tried to turn it around, and it didn’t go well for her.
I love having a showrunner who thinks like this.
I came back just from hiatus to reblog this because this is BEAUTIFUL thank you bryan(via hannibalkanibalas)

So can we talk about how Finding Nemo had not one, but three major characters with disabilities? And how all of those characters (Nemo, Dory, and Gill) were fully fledged characters? And how a core message of the movie was that disability=/=incompetence or worthlessness? And that the movie accomplished this without ever turning into “inspiration porn” or even making it a big deal?
Can we talk about that?
Because it’s kind of awesome.
aka WHY THIS MOVIE CHANGED MY FUCKING LIFE
NO. DO NOT GET ME GOING ON FINDING NEMO YOU WILL BE HERE ALL DAY MOTHERFUCKERS.
WEARING A NEW PAIR OF SKINNY JEANS FOR THE FIRST TIME
So, after much work and a long day of con going, I was finally able to put together a complete set of pics of my Secret Police cosplay!
I am really happy how this turned out ya’ll. And I even got to take a picture with Jeffrey Cranor!
This set also includes close ups of the patches and the tickets I gave out, both of which were designed by me and custom ordered. The tickets are on actual carbon paper! very neat.
Overall, I am super super happy to finally wear this. It was just a ton of fun.
