Must Missy meander musingly?

Is it 2003? I just heard Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” like twice at the same place within an hour. o.O

Hannibal chapters 1 & 2 Prompt

[Prompt]

Seven years later….

Clarice is now an FBI agent. These first two chapters serve to reintroduce us to this character and they also serve as a window into her new reality.

What are your thoughts on her current situation inside the Bureau?

Well, I think she’s really in for it considering her mission went completely batshit  - she killed five people, Brigham and Burke are dead, she shot a mother with a baby in her arms, never mind that she was armed and loaded. Also, as a question addresses below, John Brigham pointed out earlier that somebody higher up must hate her, so on top all that just happened, things don’t look too good for Clarice. With Brigham gone, I don’t know who could accurately speak for her if there was an investigation.

Can you notice any differences between the “old” Starling and this “new” one? If yes, which ones?

Yes, she has changed a lot in the several years that have passed since Silence of the Lambs. We don’t see far too much of her outside her doing her job, but it is clear the years in the Bureau have hardened her and that hope and enthusiasm she once had as a trainee seems to have diminished.  I think this quote illustrates her general attitude well: “There was a time when Starling would have deferred to these men. Now they didn’t like what she was saying, and she had seen too much to care.” I think “too much” is the key term here.  On a more positive note, Starling seems to have really become a pro at what she does and there is no question that she knows what she’s doing. Oh, and she definitely looks her age at 32 and, hot damn, does she look good at her age.

“I don’t ask, but somebody at Buzzard’s Point hates you, I think.” Brigham asks Clarice. It’s too early in the game to say, but why would anybody have anything against Clarice? 

She shook things up a lot back in Silence of the Lambs so I think that heavily contributes to why she’s being made to do jump squad after jump squad mission when that really isn’t what she joined the Bureau for in the first place. Clarice does the job and she works hard to do it well, but she isn’t particularly concerned with appeasing those who don’t find her approach palatable to their political sensibilities.

And finally, do you think Clarice cries only because of the death of her former gunnery instructor, John Brigham?

I’m sure he is a big, big reason she loses it at the end of the chapter because of how long she’d known him and he seemed to be really supportive of her the little we’ve seen of him in the first chapter. That is a huge loss, I imagine. But I think all of it is catching up to her at this point - the gravity of taking five lives, the loneliness of the job, the long years that have added up to nothing, the loss of a trusted colleague and maybe even friend, and stripping a child of its mother.  Clarice hasn’t had it easy and I think how this mission blew up sent her over that tipping point. Even Ardelia, her long-time friend and roommate had never seen her cry before.

Not the best place for Clarice to start. We’ll see where we go from here.

Please, remember to use the tag #DHannibal if you want to participate so that we can track your entries. Thank you!

Edit: Next week, we’ll be reading chapters 3 & 4.

Spent hundreds of dollars on stupid doctors visits. Will now spend hundreds of dollars on textbooks.

Hello!

deconstructinghannibal:

Loved by some, loathed by others. Hannibal (1999) finally gives Dr. Hannibal Lecter the chance of taking the centre stage. But he’s not alone. Clarice Starling also comes back. Will their story be as good as in The Silence of the Lambs? How will it end?

We created this website to read along this book and discuss it. We want this place to be free, without constricting timetables. We don’t want it to be limited; everybody is welcome to participate. Do you have a brilliant meta of each chapter? This is your place. Do you just want to say what you thought of a particular scene? This is your place. Do you have questions about the book? This is your place. 

How will we be reading Hannibal? We know that real life business sometimes prevents us from participating in groups like this, so we’re going to try to give all of you time to read some chapters. If the chapters are short, we’ll probably read faster. We’ll be posting prompts every 5 chapters or so OR when an important event takes place in the book that we believe merits its own discussion.

We will be also posting quotes. Please, feel free to submit us your favourite quotes.

Our ask is open. Is easy to participate. You just need to tag your entry #DHannibal so we can track it. 

WE’LL START NEXT WEEK, so get your Hannibal copies as soon as possible (if you don’t have them already)

Reblog if you dont have a bra on.

Omg weird day. I think I had like an anxiety attack? Herpes scares that I’ve yet to conclude, but probably just paranoia. XD Registered for all the classes I wanted! And right after that (just now), I got a call back that I only just left a voicemail for today to go to a job interview like RIGHT NOW. *ok goes to get ready!!!*
