This is so modern, yet historically inspired. I love it. 

You’d think if [Richard III’s] ghost was going to talk he’d basically reiterate the whole Horrible Histories sketch ‘No hump, good husband, great with kids.’

Either that or go ‘Didn’t screw my neice. Henry Tudor is a twit.’

Too much has happened for us not to talk about this, however pleasant the distraction.

Oh, God.

After that episode, I think I’ve started shipping Hannigram. Not sexually - I can’t ever ship that -  but there is a degree of obsession and a strange sort of bond, despite how much Will might want to remove himself from the good doctor. Hannibal is in love with Will - a strange, almost calculated sort of love - and Will can’t break away.

Murder husbands indeed.

I seldom browse era tags on tumblr because I get a very great desire to reblog every mislabeled post and scream at the OP. But that would be overly aggressive, and if I’m going to be aggressive, I’d rather be passive-aggressive. Anyway, hopefully if I tag this with every conceivable era people might see it and learn something. Cause knowledge is power! Or, being a dumbass is bad. Whichever you prefer.
