I have a heart now.

Dear readers, I am no longer a heartless witch. Today, I made myself an origami heart inspired by the one made by the artist Alex Yue on NBC’s Hannibal. Naturally, I made it in honor of my favourite fictional couple- Hannibal Letter and Will Graham. It’s not as good as I hoped it would be, but I guess my origami skills will improve with practice.

Hannibal initially made this heart out of the body of a dead poet and displayed it in a museum, to signify that Will had left him with a broken heart. (He does tend to be a little melodramatic.)

He then made a replica out of paper, like the one I have made. (I had to use paper because I don’t know any poets I’d want to kill.)
