So do we just universally ship Preller now or
Anonymous said: Same anon. I don't know what makes me think they won't be together in a mind palace either. How Bryan expressed himself, maybe? He basically dodged the question saying the c3po and r2d2 thing and then that there will be more new characters. And again in some othere interview (I don't recall which one) he said that just because we don't see them together it doesn't mean that things won't be interesting. I hope I'm wrong. And I'd love to read your opinion about it, obviously :)
Yeah, he dodged the question and went straight to his talking point. It’s almost so automatic for him that I don’t think there is much that can be taken from it. All of the people involved in the show get asked the same questions so many times that I think they just go onto autopilot when it happens, but sometimes I suspect that Bryan prepares his autopilot answers as a kind of mental script because it keeps him from revealing more than he wants to, and he’s never struck me as much of a natural liar. His mind makes a lot of connections and he jumps through them verbally when interviewed, so that some of his answers don’t at a glance make a lot of sense without context, and they sometimes get him into trouble when people nitpick for things to get angry about. And he’s also a complete troll.
I’m not remotely certain, but I think he might be kind of trolling us by emphasizing how much Hannibal and Will are going to be apart. And doing that would honestly probably be the safest course of action for him. If he builds up how apart they’re going to be, then whatever crumbs we get of them together or in each other’s thoughts or speaking about each other are going to get gobbled up with thanks, as if he were being generous…as opposed to the other way around, where he tells us, “Don’t worry” and then we cry and moan about how stingy he is. Which isn’t to say that I’m predicting a lot of them together in any form—I’m not. I just think he may be psyching us all out a little as a form of pre-damage control.
I think Sherlock isn’t joking here. He has literally no idea how he could possibly love being Sherlock Holmes. Being himself. But first things first.
Warning: going into Sherlock’s (terrible) sense of self-worth isn’t going to be a pleasant experience. Especially if we talk about series 3.
