I usually think fandoms Do Too Much with non-canon m/m pairings, however, Hannibal/Will are def an exception, along with L/Light in Death Note and (to some extent) Clark and Lex in Smallville.

WE WERE ROBBED!

I was obsessed with L/Light when I was younger, there were some amazing fics in that fandom.

It was such an abusive, toxic relationship and it’s weird how much people wanted representation on this show. I want healthy representation, not this. The man who tortured and butchered women loved a man, so it’s sooo cute. No.

Mads is also still sexist.

He tortured and butchered men too. I don't think anyone sane thought it was "cute", they thought it was interesting/well-written.

No one wanted them to kiss just because it would’ve been “interesting” though. It’s because they were a) a m/m pairing b) a “dangerous” pairing (abusive, basically). Lgbt people need abusive representation like a hole in the head.

I mentioned women because he literally held a woman hostage, cut off her arm and gaslit her. This kiss would’ve happened in the place he kept her captive. People also hated him with Alana and blamed her for keeping him apart from Will. I saw a lot of misogyny in the fandom and makes this even grosser imo.

I agree that some people just wanted to fetishize them. But I think other people also wanted them to be romantically involved because it would have been interesting and entertaining to watch. I understand what you're saying about representation and it's a fair point, but IME many LGBT people (myself included) also want to see LGBT relationships of all kinds in media the same way hetero people get interesting flawed and toxic relationships.

it's so funny that this whole show/fandom is literally "i can excuse murder and cannibalism but i draw the line at them being heterosexuals"

But they’re not Heterosexual? It’s canon that they’re queer.

Is it canon tho

Yes? For Hannibal it is, given that he literally confesses to being in love with Will to Bedelia.

Will isn't canon though.
