Fannibals are a tremendously creative bunch. Not only do we transform elements and events in canon, we blend universes to ship other Mads and Hugh characters. Our imagination isn’t limited to Hannigram, either: there are numerous Marlana, Bedannibal, and Preller stories, not to mention gen fics.
But have you ever wondered what it might be like if the characters switched roles? If it hadn’t occurred to you before, then hang onto your meat grinders, because we’re going on a wild ride for our next fest!
For #InYourSkin, they’re asking you to put characters into each others’ shoes. Maybe Franklyn is Hannibal’s serial-killing psychiatrist (the cheese is people). Matthew was framed for the crimes of the Chesapeake Ripper, but Will is an orderly ready to exact revenge. Alana whisks Hannibal off to Florence in order to escape her crimes.
Or perhaps you’d prefer to use characters outside of the Hannibal universe! Gangster Adam and space enthusiast Nigel; prince One Eye and warrior Charmont; Elias loves to run, and Lee… loves chickens.
From March 23rd-25th, create edits and gifsets, make art, write fic, anything you want! The only limit is your imagination. Use the hashtag #InYourSkin to promote your work on Tumblr and Twitter, or post it in the collection on AO3. Remember that only previously unpublished works will be accepted; Hannibal cre-ate-ive fests are for brand new creations only.
Thanks to the talented and marvelous @le-wendigogo for creating the wonderful art for the banner!
Ps. Reblog it on Tumblr and spread the word!
