percygranger asked: Warning: Contagious enthusiasm for historical figures.
if people came with warning labels, what would mine be?
People have made lots of interesting Hannigram playlists, but for me? There’s really only one song whose lyrics, word for word, truly symbolize what Hannigram is all about:
elcort asked: A while back, while bored out of my mind, an odd little thought popped into my head: "You know who that cool U2 nerd conspiracy affectionado loves the hell out of? T.E. Lawrence." Well, one thing led to another, and whoops! Down ＴＨＥ ＡＢＹＳＳＡＬ ＲＡＢＢＩＴ ＨＯＬＥ. I've been wading through an inland sea of books since then, and I'm sure my buddies are counting the days until a framed photo of the guy materializes on my mantel. Thank you for inadvertently inciting my descent into... whatever this is.
Okay, so it was really, really thrilling to get this message. I mean, anyone can get on this website and convince people to watch Supernatural or read John Green, but I feel like convincing someone that they need to get way into a historical figure is a greater accomplishment.
If you’re one of my more recent followers, I hope you’ll check out my fake Tumblr Powerpoint about why T.E. Lawrence is the most fascinating human being who ever lived. And of course anyone who cares to discuss Lawrence, or U2, or conspiracy theories for that matter, should feel free to send me an Ask. Cheers!
Anonymous asked: This might just be a coincidence, but it sounds like you read the Jezebel knotting article? I was so pissed I didn't even bother to read it because I knew it was going to be full of shit!
EDIT: Oops hello, I just now went and saw that Jezebel has an article that is just about knotting. When I answered this Ask, I thought anon was referring to their article about Dashcon. Please proceed to the response with this in mind:
Yep. And Jezebel is not the only place where the omegaverse panel got roped in with all the reasons why the con was “a shitshow.”
I didn’t want to mention Dashcon because 1) it would date the post, and 2) I didn’t want it to get derailed in the reblogs and turn into more trashing of Dashcon (which accomplishes nothing).
But yeah, basically mundanes who point to omegaverse as being proof that fan culture is nothing but a frenzy of grotesque sexual fantasies deserving of ridicule ought to take a long hard look at their own browser histories, because they’re likely not that different.
It really pisses me off when the existence of the omegaverse is used as proof that the people involved in fandom are a perverse collective human disaster and not to be taken seriously.
Have you ever watched “mainstream” porn? Have you ever been to XTube or whatever and seen the kind of porn that “normal people” watch? Think about it:
- All orifices are mysteriously self-lubricating
- Dicks seem suspiciously bigger than the dicks you’ve seen in real life
- Participants become suddenly, uncontrollably aroused for seemingly no reason and regardless of present location
- The dirty talk is redonk shit that no one should ever try to say in real life
Okay? That’s all I have to say. Kirk out. *rolls away*
Sometimes when I’m working on a fic and it gets to the point where I’m typing phrases like “enormous throbbing alpha cock” I have to literally stop and actually physically do this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in order to feel like I can continue.
NEW FIC! “It Means Cute and Dozing Off” (Hannigram fluff, PG-13/Teen)
Title: It Means Cute and Dozing Off (read on AO3)
Author: Berlynn Wohl
Pairing: Will Graham/Hannibal Lecter
Word count: 1300
You may have seen this Tumblr post, which contains both an explanation and an illustration of the difference between “sleepy” and “tired.” Will is always tired, so I wanted to write a fic where he is sleepy instead. Hope you enjoy. More porn on the way next week.
(Also, side note: while putting in the tags I saw this one: If you only read one work by me. BRB, going to put that tag in every single one of my fics.)
Weird Al to the rescue again, doing a parody of a song with a catchy melody but shitty lyrics, so I can at last enjoy the former without having to endure the latter. :)
