Night Vale and Hannibal Have Collided...IN MY MIND  
I had a dream not too long ago that involved elements of both fandoms. Luckily, this did NOT spark a crossover fic.

I had a dream that I was showing Cecil Baldwin around my old family house. Yes, Baldwin. Not Palmer. Not sure what would have been more fun. The most vivid things about this dream were he was wearing that plaid jacket he wore during some of the West Coast tour shows and that the carpeting of my old family home had a paisley pattern (which it doesn't in RL). Clearly, the aesthetics of Hannibal were working their magic on my unconsciousness.

I have no idea why I was giving him a tour of the house but he was really fascinated by the house and asked tons of questions. The tour ended in the 2nd floor bathroom by which time I could hear my family downstairs, returning home. And for whatever reason, I knew that they had ever intention of finding Cecil Baldwin and eating him. Like, straight up cannibalism. Strangely, I was less frightened for myself or even the situation despite you know, CANNIBALS. But I really, really did not want a poor stranger to fall victim to what I apparently considered to be an every day practice by my family members. (UH, just to be clear: no one in my family is a cannibal in RL).

I told Cecil Baldwin he had to climb out the bathroom window to escape but he kept insisting that he would be fine, it was totally cool, they wouldn't eat him etc. I kept arguing that no, they really were going to and he didn't know them like I knew them and he needed to leave if he planned on staying alive. Everything concluded with me shoving him out the window with a hiss of "Stop arguing and RUN. Oh, and I look forward to the next podcast."

I actually woke up feeling like the dream was sort of awesome because I knew exactly why my brain mashed those two fandoms. I also remember thinking, "Cecil, you're charming and all but you won't be able to charm your way out of my family NOT eating you. Just run."
