That’s a pretty poppet you have there. Would be a shame if your target was able to use the link to burn down everything you have, wouldn’t it.

Backdrafts are a bitch, aren’t they.
There are people that don’t bury the poppet in a mirror cage with horrible witch plants growing atop it?
First rule of combat magic: any link runs both ways.
Second rule: therefore the person who pushes down the link hardest, or turns the current cleverest, wins.
Amazing how few workers realise these two basics.
A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.
Anonymous asked: We have been warned that Will is going to be playing with fire this season and may well get burnt, do you think that the show would put Will in a threesome with Margot and Mason. Would they go there???
Heh, I think Bryan was referring to Will’s violent tendencies and his similarities to Hannibal, not his sexual proclivities. I think getting burnt in this sense has less to do with exterior consequences like provoking Mason Verger or getting himself almost killed and more to do with being consumed from the inside out—passing a point where he becomes what it is he’s fighting.
Personally, I hope the answer is no, because ew. Michael Pitt may be a hottie, but Mason Verger is still…ew. They managed to make Chilton sympathetic—and he was despicable in the books and films—so who knows what they’ll be up to with Mason, but right now I’m just…ew.
Plus it would just seem weird, I think. I have a hard time seeing Will tolerant enough of Mason Verger to climb into bed with him, either literally or figuratively, regardless of where Will is on his own personal journey. Will’s temptations lie in Hannibal’s direction, and Hannibal and Mason are opposing forces. Never mind that they’re all killers to some degree or another: Will’s own murderous tendencies have always been pointed toward a vigilante brand of justice, while Mason is all about pure self-gratification. (Hannibal encompasses both.) But I could be wrong here, depending on what paths they choose to pursue with Mason.
We’re in pretty uncharted territory with sex on this show, and to what extent they’ll allow people to be victimized in their sexual relationships, and Mason’s the kind of character who will make the show demonstrate exactly where it intends to draw a line. I don’t think I want to see that done with Will.
Might they go there anyway? Instinct tells me no, just based on past experience with what to expect from TV. I saw that NBC supposedly gave them a little more leeway with the sex than one would expect from a network, but I don’t know what that means. It could just be referring to the incest. This might be cynical of me, but it seems risky for a show on the bubble of cancellation on a network TV show to put a male/male sexual encounter on the screen, especially with one of its main characters. Even if there’s a woman present. Not with America being what it is.
Accurate breakdown is accurate.
Also, Margot is canon is a pure lesbian, so there’s that…
