SORRY THAT MADE ME LAUGH.
What, the vampire fangs?
I HAVE SO MANY EMBARRASSING HIGH SCHOOL STORIES. Weirdly enough I was never picked on and had a pretty wide circle of friends, from the prom queen to the loser nerds that introduced themselves by anime character names. High school was very non-traumatic for me, outside of the home.
I just had early access to the internet so I was a demented fucking child.
This is an important post
tell me something embarrassing you used to wear in high school that at the time you thought was super cool but now you look back and you cringe yourself into the fucking ionosphere.
I went through an Anne Rice period in junior high, and I would wear those little plastic Scarecrow vampire fangs to class. Thought I was hot shit, very mysterious and original.

Look at these stupid fucking creatures. They look like something out of “Untamed World”, I love it.
Today is apparently selfie day
Stop taking selfies in my room, you attractive human being.
Taste in Words: A Brief Examination of Word Choice in Hannibal
It was taste that itched at her in the daily round of her institutional life with its purely functional equipment in utilitarian settings…. For years she had read couture publications on the sly, guiltily as though they were pornography. Now she began to admit to herself that there was something in those pictures that made her hungry.
- Hannibal; Thomas Harris
There are no words to describe how much I love this passage (actually the entire chapter). Harris drops little hints to the ending he intends to give Starling. In other places it’s in Starling’s actions - imagining herself shooting down the men who essentially fire her from the Bureau, laughing at Dr. Lecter’s work with the poacher and deer - however, here we find the signals in his word choice.
Ahh I love this! I know we joke a lot, and it’s certainly a theme in a lot of fic, that Hannibal would be disapproving of some of her tastes, and she’d probably make certain choices to bother him etc…but that’s really not the case in the canon. She’s just lacking the means, not the desires.
I hope if/WHEN we get Clarice on the show that this is made more of a thing. There’s certainly more to go on with Hannibal’s tastes and her later knowledge of anyway. The movie briefly made a thing of it with the fashion magazine left open on her coffee table, and then him leaving the shoes (“Maybe they’ll catch up.” “I have no doubt of it.”) but…that was it. There was no real wardrobe improvement — it kinda got worse — or anything else reflecting this about her.
