and one observes only things
which are already in the mind."
-- Alphonse Bertillon
I suppose you can say it’s an overly exerted opinion that I made. Alright, sure it may be a harsh command of some sort but I defend my position nonetheless. As I stated, I understand there will be controversy but my statement and opinion is grounded. I have nothing against homosexual relationships as long as it’s intended to be so. Bryan Fuller, (with nothing much against him since I do enjoy watching the Hannibal show as well) can explore all he wants with Hannibal. I’m judging my opinion solely on the books. It’s an opinion I wanted to state. Just as you believe that I can’t alter another’s interests, you cannot alter mine. Judging the fact that you have read the books, Hannibal and Will are alike in mentality. Their states of mind correspond to one another. That’s all there is to it, not so much of a romantic innuendo. I suppose it’s an ambiguous subject but it can be interpreted in any way a person would like. Realistically, it should be interpreted as a mentor/student type of relationship where a student learns from his mentor. That is what Hannibal strives to be, does he not? He’s been a mentor to the serial killers that his students, Will and Clarice chase. That’s typically all he is, not a surrogate lover.
