"Life as an omega bookseller can be quite lonely. However, as the owner of Graham’s Books, Will Graham is reasonably content. That is until he meets—long-time customer and crush—Doctor Hannibal Lecter in person for the first time. Attraction blossoming between them both, Will agrees to a dinner date with the good doctor."

I like kombucha and I like Misha. So.


I will be managing a bang that's posting 19 fanfics and accompanying art in May...

While also launching a new fest/bang in another fandom.

May is going to be busy.

If you're new here

A lot of people won't accept a follow request, or might (soft-)block you if your profile doesn't have an avatar/header/bio/any posts at all

This isn't personal

It's just a learned response that is protective against spammy follow-bots

If you give us something to go on, you may find that people get much friendlier! :)

For everyone joining Mastodon today, whether here or another instance:

Welcome! We're happy to have you with us!

Just three quick things that I want to suggest:
- Please be patient! Today is personally by far the busiest day I've ever had with the instance, and I'm upgrading it tomorrow to help handle the influx of new users
- Please be kind to others! Should be obvious, but this is not Twitter!
- Give it a chance for more than just a day or two. Get to know your space :bowie_heart:

Welp, I did it!

This weekend I launched Hannigram Tropefest, a new fandom event for the fandom. Sign ups open May 7th.

If you'd like to know more, check out the fest's Dreamwidth hannigramtropefest.dreamwidth.

What am I doing this long weekend (thanks to Easter)?

I'm in the process of launching a new Hannibal fandom event called Hannigram Tropefest.

Looking forward to sharing more once I've finished drafting things and gotten them online.

I'm reading Leviathan by James A. Corey at the moment and finding typos here and there. Maybe more than I usually expect to find...

Ah well. At least none have been so bad as to completely misremember the plot that's passed up to that point and inserted a deceased character.

Anyone got any tips for switching brain off from work things after work?

I'm increasingly finding it hard to indulge in my hobbies when I'm not working, because I have no headspace left 😭

Excited about trying out a new exercise bike.

My new book is finally out. Social Engineering: How Crowdmasters, Phreaks, Hackers, and Trolls, was written by myself and Sean Lawson.

In order to grapple with today's disinformation, we looked to two different types of social engineering: early 20th century mass propaganda, and mid-20th century interpersonal computer hacker (and phone phreak) con artistry.

We argue that today's disinformation is a fluid mix of both -- at once mass and interpersonal -- thanks to corporate social media. 1/2
