…Or I could just make the display a Hannibal Greatest Hits, which means I don’t have to worry about the tricky stuff and I get to flay Peeps and stick them on totem poles.

My family holds a competition for best Dead Peep Tableau on Easter. Last year I made a tiny broom and deflated a Peep in the microwave for a melted Wicked Witch of the West. I was thinking that for his year I could do the Red Wedding. But I think I have a better idea.

…I might have to do all the Hannibal season 2 murder tableaus.

(Thoughts? Suggestions? The judge from 2x3 is going to be tough but doable, but I have no idea how to do the hospital orderly from 2x6 so I think I’ll do Gideon instead. I’m really not sure what to do for 2x7)

Years and years ago, there was a production of The Tempest, out of doors, at an Oxford college on a lawn, which was the stage, and the lawn went back towards the lake in the grounds of the college, and the play began in natural light. But as it developed, and as it became time for Ariel to say his farewell to the world of The Tempest, the evening had started to close in and there was some artificial lighting coming on. And as Ariel uttered his last speech, he turned and he ran across the grass, and he got to the edge of the lake and he just kept running across the top of the water — the producer having thoughtfully provided a kind of walkway an inch beneath the water. And you could see and you could hear the plish, plash as he ran away from you across the top of the lake, until the gloom enveloped him and he disappeared from your view.

And as he did so, from the further shore, a firework rocket was ignited, and it went whoosh into the air, and high up there it burst into lots of sparks, and all the sparks went out, and he had gone.

When you look up the stage directions, it says, ‘Exit Ariel.’

*jumps around madly*  Oh my GOD - I think I found the actor that they based the Outsider’s character model on.  I’m not even exaggerating.

Okay, so, there’s this mid-grade horror movie that came out in 2002 called Ghost Ship.  I don’t feel bad about spoiling it, because the twist is sort of like The Shining, and it’s not that great, though it does have a very young Emily Browning in it.  ANYWAY…

The villain is some sort of otherworldly being that operates strictly nautically.  He’s played by a man named Desmond Harrington, and once he gets his villain cap on, well…

I have SO MANY QUESTIONS about the little Primal jaunt at the end of chapter 4 (which was especially hilarious this time as I hadn’t taken out all the guards beforehand. Garrett is TRIPPING LIKE WHOA while a crowd of angry idiots are banging on the door yelling about how THE SONOFABITCH LOCKED HIMSELF IN THE DAMN SAFE)

I mean

Why is there an audio hallucination of a Pink Floyd-esque schoolteacher at the beginning? That seems VERY out of place.

(Is this Erin’s memory? Is it Garrett’s?)

(“Don’t you want to know where you’ve BEEN?” I SWEAR the Moira theory is canon)

What is the significance of the statue holding the stone fragment? (When I get back home I’m taking screenshots)

Is it an icon? Or is it drawn from memory?

Who is the woman?

(It’s not Erin. Is it the anthropomorphized Primal?)

Who is the child?

Is it merely symbolic?

Is it Erin?

(Is it Garrett?)

WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?????

You have good questions!

I think it’s Garrett’s because it is saying “come here boy” but also in the bio thing for the app it says he escaped the orphanage so I’m taking that as orphanage was bad very bad.

It’s totally cannon I accept no other theories NONE I SAY!

It might be the one in front of Moria? I’d have to play it again as it’s not completely fresh in my mind.

O_O interesting thought I shall think more on this.

Just some general Primal rambling I think because of how ingrained it is into The City that a part of it remembers what happened before/what is happening so during its disruption of sleep by being in Erin it was frantically pulling on stuff from the past looking for help (it is said that it likes being “neutral” so it’d probably want to be back in its regular resting state) and that is what people were hearing/seeing; having the shard in his eye made Garrett’s hallucinations more geared towards his past.

Reblogging this to rant about how THE APP SAYS THAT OUR GARRETT ESCAPED AN ORPHANAGE???!!?

*is too tired to rant*

Hello my name is Smaragdina and I just got a Flight Rising account under the same name. I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing.

Unsurprisingly, though, I do have a gif for this scenario.
