Tattle Diary Entry #11: Canon Vs Fanon [Can Bryan Fuller Tweet Canon?]

Bryan Fuller does not have the power to change canon through tweets. Fannibals do not have the power to change canon through fan fiction they write or willfully misinterpreting quotes from the show. At the end of the day, Hannigram is fanon, not canon. The little annoying Hannigram shippers need to learn to accept that and move on with their lives.

Tattle Diary Entry #10: Why Are The Fannibals So Obnoxiously Obsessive?

One must wonder what the show might have been like had it gotten a normal PR campaign. Had it been advertised like a TV show should be or usually was. What kind of audience it may have attracted (and ratings) if a different creator had been at the helm and how well the should could have done if it hadn’t catered to mentally ill and overly obsessive Tumblr fangirls. There is a longing to know what could have been and a disappointment in knowing what never can be.

Tattle Diary Entry #9: Why Are Mads And Hugh So Polite To The Fannibals?

One thing I see pop up a lot in the Hannibal fandom, especially on Tumblr is the notion that Mads and Hugh (and the rest of the cast) allegedly love being accosted…sorry…visited by Fannibals to talk about Hannibal. Even years after the show was cancelled (and has not chance of coming back). Of course, people use this to attempt to contradict my statement that maybe these people are actually very annoyed by this behavior. Except, the evidence that they are annoyed by this (or even creeped out and intimidated) is more than the evidence that they legitimately enjoy it.

Tattle Diary Entry #8: The Real Life Madancy Ship

For anyone who doesn’t know the term “Madancy” is the name tumblr fannibals gave to a romantic pairing for two real, adult, straight men. They are Mads Mikkelsen (Ma) and Hugh Dancy (Dancy) on NBC’s Hannibal TV show. Both men are straight, married, and have children. In Mikkelsen’s case he has been married for a very long time, about 30 years. He has two children, one of them who has reached legal adult age and one who is close. Hugh Dancy is more recently married and he just had his first child with his wife. Neither of them have a history of being with other men romantically or being romantically linked with each other.

Tattle Diary Entry #7: Rampant Fraud In The Hannibal Fandom

No one is saying that the Fannibals aren’t free to fund scam artists and buy fan made Hannibal Merchandise at a huge mark up that makes no sense and is clearly ripping them off, however, I am saying it’s extremely bizarre and I do question WHY this is the case when almost no other fandom would tolerate this behavior.

Tattle Diary Entry #6: Everything Wrong With Abigail Hobbs

Abigail Hobbs was quite possibly the worst character to ever happen to the NBC Hannibal series. Here are a bunch of reasons why. This will only examine her behavior shown on screen in the actual show. Using this I will add in commentary to emphasize how pointless her character was.

Tattle Diary Entry #5: Everything Wrong With Hannibal Season Two

These are just the things off of the top of my head that I know are wrong with season two. The things that stand out the most. Are there more? I’m sure there are, but this is just what comes to mind. Still, this was supposed to be a somewhat realistic crime drama. At least, that’s how it started.

Tattle Diary Entry #4: The Weird Gender & Age Ratio In The Hannibal Fandom

At the end of the day, what we have here is a cult fandom of 40-60 year old women regularly engaging with very young (sometimes minor) girls and sharing explicit gay fan fiction and erotic art with them, for some reason. No one thinks this is weird or creepy, and parents apparently just DON’T check on what their kids watch anymore? What the hell is going on?

Tattle Diary Entry #3: The Victim or The Fighter?

I have never once claimed to be 100% innocent in this fandom. I have never once claimed that there is “no reason” for people to hate me. No, that’s what the fannibals do, not me. The only thing I’ve ever said was that the level of harassment I received in response to things I’ve said is entirely disproportionate to the harassment the fannibals decided was an appropriate retaliation. That’s not me playing the victim. That’s just the truth.

Tattle Diary Entry #2: The Hannigram Obsession

One of the things that is most disturbing to me is the obsession surrounding Hannigram. For those who don’t know what that is, it’s a fictional and non-canonical relationship from the show Hannibal. It is the romantic pairing of Will Graham with Hannibal Lecter. We’ll start with a brief history of why this isn’t actually canon, as well as why it’s not actually romantic. We’ll follow that up with what the fandom turned it into and how it’s become problematic.
