    Thanks again, Kaja! I've wanted to use that Bjork song for vidding for ages. So it was more like I chose the show for the song than choosing the song for the show, if you know what I mean! The lyrics fit so well I had that song in mind even before I finished S1.

    Re-watching (now that I know the show) I have to congratulate you again on your fantastic song choice!! Perfect song for a Hannibal vid!!! It suits the atmosphere and the darkness of the show so well!

    My favourite parts of the vid are when Hannibal stands up and applauds at Will and all that no one sees, you see what's inside of me.

    Superb vid, cappy!!

    Thank you so much! I've wanted to use this song for vidding for ages. I was just waiting for a show that would suit the lyrics and I had plans to use it for a Will/Hannibal vid before I'd even finished my first watch! Thank you for your feedback.

    Wow, this is really perfect for Will and Hannibal's relationship. Your lyrical interpretation left me speechless at times (particularly the verses!) and your parallels were very impressive (Georgia on fire, the stag on fire, and then, most of all, Hannibal's saucepan fire. It was so very telling on her Will comes to slowly make all the right connections.)

    Excellent work!!

    Thank you so much, Sheree and Uruviel! I hope the Hannibal fanvids will help our cause and promote the show to potential fans.

    Also thanks to everyone who rated. My 'Average Rating' moved up to a Gold Star today. Whoohoo!

    Thanks so much, Kaja! I've been wanting to make a vid with that Bjork song for ages, I just needed the right fandom match. I'm glad you liked it and I hope it encourages you to watch the show. You're a GoT fan so you're not scared off by shows that are gory, cruel and unusual.

    Yes, the stag is very much symbolic of Hannibal. There's a murder in the first episode which leaves a girl impaled on antlers so stag imagery becomes a big part of Will's dreams. The stag is how Will envisions the killer he is seeking before he knows who it really is.

    Holy creepiness!!!
    That was amazing, cappy!!! This show looks so grotesque yet visually really stunning. I'm so intrigued to see this!!
    I love, love, love your song choice! Björk makes such a bizzare, but great type of music and it worked so well here for those nightmarish scenes. What's up with the elk though? Is it somehow connected to/with Hannibal?

    Again, amazing vid!! *applauds*

    Thanks again, Lune. Hannibal tearing up at the opera was one of the most memorable moments for me. Just learning that Hannibal wasn't dead inside, but was someone who could be moved and enthralled by music. So I wanted that moment in the vid, but since my vid was Will centric, I had to change the context. I think Hannibal is just as moved by the opera of Will's mental breakdown so it sort of works. Like you say, it's Hannibal's psychological abuse that is the most disturbing.
