melaniehopes: (ugly laughter)
isozyme: (from other room) WHAT
melaniehopes: unclassy boner jokes
isozyme: SAVE THEM!
this is our relationship. that’s it. that’s the whole relationship.
This text post comes to you in five parts:
1) For those of you following along, I got into the lab I wanted, Nemesis McManchild is thwarted, everything is coming up isozyme.
2) Now that I am in the lab I wanted I am taking a whole half a week off! Yay! Time to turn off my brain and draw and take requests (maybe, we’ll see) also do chores and read papers.
3) I got a few new followers and I’m also making inroads into Hannibal fandom, so if anyone wants me to tag for anything please do tell me! I tag my text posts #wittering, my asks #isozyme answers, my replies #replies and somewhat less consistently my meme responses #meme me. I do try to tag for obvious things (body horror comes to mind, whoops) but if you have something specific I am happy to oblige!
4) Speaking of Hannibal oh no will graham, oh no.
5) Dear Team Texas Chansaw Massacre is anybody making anything for Round 1? Anybody want to collab? I promise that beneath my crispy neurotic exterior there is a creamy laid-back center.
Okay for the people who don’t want an itemized list of faults, a public service announcement: this movie isn’t worth the $8.75 of a matinee ticket. I have had more fun sitting in my apartment staring at a wall for two and a half hours. I would rather watch The Hobbit and then Star Trek Into Darkness back to back twice than go watch this movie again. This movie has no redeeming features. There is no good here. Go you Youtube and find a ten hour loop of The Hamster Song, you’ll thank me for saving you from this godawful movie.
I need more alcohol in my bloodstream for this shit.
innocently looking at superman: man of steel image search to gauge the abstract attractiveness of this dude (verdict: too lesbian for this research, we need to call in consultants) and:
WHAT IS THIS
WHY DID THIS HAPPEN
WHY DID THEY THINK THIS WAS LESS EMBARRASSING THAN UNDERPANTS ON THE OUTSIDE
like you can’t even look at his face because there’s like a tennis ball down there demanding your attention
it’s just like “yep, chiseled americana, big s, snake-textured suit, WHOA HELLO THERE”
but don’t fear, we figured out why this happened to our eyes
pants that tight lead directly to a Goblin King-esque knowledge of Superman’s private parts, so the makeup team designed a solution
I imagine it went like this: “shit those pants are penis-outline pants, this is not good, america cannot know the exact dimensions of super-dick”
“i know! we will sculpt him a ken-prosthetic out of foam latex and place it over his crotch like a penis burial mound. nobody will know”
oh I am glad you are joining us in this fandom!
yes I am doing it, hannibal is exactly my thing, the fandom seems brilliant, and I am really glad that melaniehopes needled me into watching it. plus, the food stylist for the show has a blog, I can’t even begin to deal with how happy I am about it.
Ohhhh yes. This fandom is glorious and is ever augmented by your joining.
it has been too long since I’ve had a fresh new fandom. far too long. everybody better brace themselves.
are you telling me this is actually good enough to watch? because if you tell me it I will believe you, and commence the watching
hannibal is absolutely good enough to watch! i will warn for gore. it is not light on the gore. it is perched atop a beautiful peak between the valleys of trashy premise and overwrought presentation, like, wow, there could be no show more delighted in itself. there’s five really great (gr9) female characters, plus will graham being the embodiment of the adverb “miserably” in tiny shorts like, 150% of the time. it’s not a perfect show, but it’s exactly what i want new-fandom-wise, and i highly recommend it.
ETA: thescienceofneuroplasticity mentions that Hannibal is also full of gaslighting, emotional manipulation and abuse by a therapist, which is a good point! The show is full of disturbing, potentially triggery stuff, and if anyone is worried in that arena I would suggest doing some careful research.

Anonymous asked: Hi! Just wondering if I could use one of your drawings (sourcing you, of course!) because I'm planning on making an Annie On My Mind playlist and the one you drew looked absolutely perfect.
Sure thing! I’m glad that you like it :)
(Since this is anon and I have to publish it I will include a PSA: all of my fanworks are totally cool for repurposing in icons, mixes, vids, photosets etc, as long as I’m sourced! The only caveat is my personal art, which I would rather stay here.)
