Y’know, the best compliment anyone can give over tumblr is just that: “Your blog is my favourite”.
I cannot even begin to tell you just how amazing it was to read your lovely words.
Thank you so much!
Hope you have a great day ahead of you!
I did in fact know about the connection between Alfredo and Lecter. I have always been a bit baffled by it though. There is not exactly an uncanny resemblance or likeness between the two.
In fact, Dr Alfredo was not considered harmful while in prison. He helped many people in jail and he became so good that, with time, he was even allowed to go out at nights to see patients.
This is a stark contrast with Robert Maudsley. Although he is now nearly 50 and has not committed a crime for more than 25 years, Maudsley is officially classified as Britain’s most dangerous prisoner, a man said to represent such a high risk to those around him that he has spent the past quarter of a century in virtual isolation. With no prospect of ever being released, he will remain in prison in isolation until he dies. This looks a lot more like Hannibal Lecter.
There is a really compelling quote that Maudsley once said: "It does not matter to them whether I am mad or bad. They do not know the answer and they do not care just so long as I am kept out of sight and out of mind".
In my opinion, he is the true inspiration for Lecter. Of course though, Harris has stated otherwise.
Hope I answered your question well enough!
Oh wow.. Holy shit.
This is probably the best ask I’ve ever gotten!
Makes me tingle a bit inside that you enjoy the things I post/write.
There is always such delight in finding people who are interested in the same things as me.
Thank you so much!
Hope you have a great day ahead of you (:
You really shouldn’t be afraid to say you’re interested in this kind of stuff.
After all, people will view your interest in all things morbid as odd if you make them feel like it’s odd.
Ah, thank you so much.
Your kind words really brightened my day.
