This, my dears, will mark the end of this 👇 round-up illustration:
Yes, the Red Dragon is dead, Hannibal is over. We need to move on to the next project in line. Except – I have no idea which project is next??? Can we hope for UATSC? Over on Twitter, film maker Candida Brady is very busy, spoiling us with lots of photos of RA… Let’s hope that is indicative of a release, soon.
For this week’s round-up, however, we are still firmly in Hannibal territory. Gifs and caps from the final episode of the show dominated
my tumblr this week. I am aware that some of you may not want to see graphic violence. I am not too keen on it, myself, and so there is little of that to be seen here, anyway, but there is one link which needs to be approached with caution. It is indicated in the list.
Other than that I can only say that I felt seriously confused yesterday morning. I got up at my usual time, did my first morning shift work and settled in for my usual routing – only to realize that there was no episode of Hannibal to hunt down, to watch and to form an opinion about. It’s scary how easily I get into a routine… Not one for much moping, I quickly rejoiced that at least that means I have more time now.
I hope you have a bit of time to click your esteemed selves through this:
- Have we seen this before? I thought this little Compton joke by applefia2036 was really funny
- Little smiles are the best. Even in dim light. Gif by armitagesangel
- The gif pops up again – but read this richardarmitage-confidential. Completely agree
- Circusgifs fulfills a request of “Carrying Reba”. I wonder why people (including me) like seeing something like this
- I had a little tumblr conversation with gifted artist anastasium. Here’s a set of all her RA drawings – fabulous
- And this is anastasium again – she made a time lapse video of her drawing process. Must watch, plus really nice portrait!
- Once the wings are black, the Red Dragon actually looks quite magnificent. Gif set by stvrkindustries
- You’ve seen this seminal Dolly/Reba scene before (probably multiple times), and this gif set by existingcharactersdiehorribly will break your heart. It sure stabbed right into mine
- Not-that-kind-of-hot shows us what it looks like when Thorin is on top. Ahem.
- He kind of did mine, too, richardarmitage-confidential
- Ok, WARNING: Not everyone wants to see this. Gif set of RA’s death scenes. By circusgifs. Click through by your own discretion
- We’ve seen this pic of Francis before, but I am including it here because larygo’s image is so nicely big
- Loved this gif set with RA’s major chaRActers by applefia2036
- Ok, it’s a shame, but compare chaRActers getting dressed. Somehow gif 2 really hits me. Gif set by ausschweifendemotte
- Do killers blink when they pull the trigger or is that Mr Armitage there?
AwwwwGif set by francisdolarhype
- Sorry for the richardarmitage-confidential overload, but THIS…
- A RA quote on Dolarhyde via applefia2036 I hadn’t read before. Spot on, Richard!!!
- This gif *had* to be in this compilation, the ArmPitage Army demanded! By kzei-smrk
- I know, I know, the anti-smoking gang will be on to me, but this one is just for me then. Smoking Chop. By thorin-baconshield
- A Red Dragon portrait by thelastgreenseer
- Speakfriendandenter has identified what Thorin and Dolarhyde have in common. Funny/cute comic
- Tandfe has put Siouxie’s lyrics to a couple of images. Nice!
- I really liked this drawing of the Red Dragon by raz089
- Lovely combo of UATSC gifs and quote by mezzmerizedbyrichard
- Slomotion-s has made a nice Red Dragon/Woman Clothed in the Sun logo/painting
- Circusgifs proves that RA has still got the majestic hair acting skill, two years after TH. Does that mean we get a “L’Oréal Leeds”, soon?
- Jollytr draws our attention to “blinky eyelash porn”. Always welcome
There. Lots of material to make us feel the “loss” less acutely 😉 . I distracted myself yesterday with shrine business. I spent a few hours getting the packages ready for my Red Dragon shrine winners. The packages finally went into the post in the afternoon. Experience tells me that packages to the US (hello 🇺🇸 SHtoday, greetings Carolyn 👋) take between 8 and 10 days to reach the recipient. The European winners (hooray 🇩🇪 Gai, Frauvonelmdings, Oaky and Alessia 🇮🇹) may already receive mail early next week. At least I hope so, because yours high-flying truly is heading to London on Thursday for a conference, and after that straight on to Cologne for a major convention, so I may not be around and online as much as I usually am. But I hope you’ll let me know if and when the package arrives. Oh, and I would love it even more, if you did me a favour: Send/tweet me a picture of your shrine in its new habitat. Doesn’t have to include you, if you are too shy and/or value your anonymity. But I’d love to see where Dolly #2 – #7 reside now 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
