can we talk about how hannibal lecter is not a psychopath.
lets first establish that psychopathy and sociopathy are the exact same thing, and neither of them are used in modern psychology. in fact, to my knowledge, neither of them have ever even had a place in the dsm. anti-social personality disorder is more or less the acknowledged equivalent to psycho/sociopathy, but it will tend to be co-morbid with other disorders (narcissistic personality disorder [npd], sadistic personality disorder [spd], borderline personality disorder [bpd]) in those who hit all the right markers for what is conventionally thought of as “psychopathy”.”anti-social” in the clinical setting does not mean not talking to and avoiding people, like it does in the colloquial sense. anti-social means behaving in a way that is anti-social, it is doing things that are against social norms, things which provoke and disturb others, things which are not socially acceptable. anti. social.
“hannibal, I don’t think, is a psychopath. I think he is performing a grandiose study of humanity. he enjoys pushing boundaries, because he is fascinated by their existence. he wants to see how far he can go. he wants to be caught, he desperately wants to be acknowledged (see: the furious reaction he had to freddie lounds’ article stating that dr gideon was the ripper), but he also knows that if he is caught, then his forays into exploring the boundaries of humanity are permanently done with.”
On Hannibal and Classical Music (Sorbet 1x07)
This is not an essay or a meta post, I repeat, this is not an essay, or well thought out meta. This is just me throwing up words everywhere in regards to the use of classical music in the latest episode of Hannibal.
Will this post be well-constructed the answer is probably not this is mostly background and context on the pieces used and me screaming “HOW APT, HOW FUCKING APT” and a bit of shoddy analysis as I wrote most of this on the back of old receipts during slow periods at work.

The Rape of Persephone (Hannigram, Twilight, & Abuse)
So after seeing some intense hate on the Hannigram tag, I decided to write some meta. And no, this isn’t refering to joushuuhigashikata’s “hate.”
It’s referring to the hate that joushuuhigashikata recieved and why.
