So let’s talk about seduction for a moment.
*70s porn music begins to play*
No, not like that. See, seduction is a bit of a tricky concept. When most people hear the word, they’re instantly thinking of someone attempting to sexually arouse and/or manipulate another person, with the eventual goal of some sort of romantic encounter. That’s how the word is used probably 80-90% of the time you hear it. You could be forgiven for mistaking that for the only definition.
But really, seduction as a general concept simply means to charm, manipulate, or lead someone astray. That may not be the layman’s idea of the word, but it’s a perfectly valid interpretation of the concept. Seduction may not necessarily be sexual in nature, it’s not a requirement.
Now let’s talk about “shipping” for a moment. Shipping falls under the same category of vaguely defined terms that have multiple valid definitions. In a traditional sense, shipping might seem to only mean the desire to see two characters come together in a romantic and sexual relationship. But this isn’t the only valid definition of shipping, and in some circles, it isn’t even the majority definition (fandom has a long history, yo).
The problem with defining “shipping” in only sexual and romantic terms is that it leaves out a broad spectrum of potentially fascinating relationship dynamics. For instance, the concept of “friend”-shipping exists, and has for quite some time. In addition, asexual and aromantic characters are left out of the equation when we insist on defining “ship” this way, because it denies the ability of a ship to become “canon” unless sexual or romantic encounters occur. Now, obviously some asexuals have sex and some aromantics have significant others and/or marriages. But a lot of shippers don’t seem to believe that a ship without the traditional characteristics (kissing/sex/declarations of love) can ever be considered canon.
Ok, that was a lot of words about seemingly nothing, and my title probably peaked your interest. So what the hell does this have to do with Hannigram?
Couldn’t agree more. Horny teen fangirls high on sexual hormones need to chill and understand what this show is all about and what Bryan Fuller’s vision of Hannigram is like. He has been the most fan-friendly TV man EVER and attacking him is just ridiculous!

Peak Black womanhood. So epic. ❤
I can see this as one of the many hairstyles Black Orlesian nobility would wear.
Because Orlais’ nobility is mostly Black because I fucking say so
I think my ovaries just imploded.
