    Summary

    On paper, it’s a terrible idea. Out loud, it’s an embarrassment.

    "I, Margot Verger, am taking my destiny back by finding a man and settling down with what is a 50-50 chance of success, fertility and fathers aside."

    She tries it out in the bathroom mirror. She plans how long it takes to get to Wolf Trap, Virginia from where she is - 46 minutes in good traffic. Enough time to say it approximately 276 more times. They say it’s a habit after 30, so maybe between now and Will Graham’s house, it’ll sound better.

    ---

    Margot tells Will about her pregnancy out of fear, and Will desperately wants to be a good father. Both should be in therapy, and with other people, but for now they can have Florida instead.

    Summary

    Hannibal's house in Newfoundland reminded Will painfully of Molly's. It had the same rough hewn frame, the same big stone fireplaces, aged wood floors, and sense of comfortable enclosure.

    Summary

    Written for a tumblr prompt where Hannibal is a tailor (and may or may not also be a serial killer) and Will comes to him for a new suit.

    Summary

    Will stares at the bird. The bird stares back. In its beak, a very finely embroidered cloth, and in that, the tiniest of soft fists pushing forward from a folded corner.

    “Don’t you dare,” Will says, crouching, hand that is not currently cradling an overly large pour of whiskey pointed at the bird to ward it off.

    ---

    After Hannibal is arrested, the stork visits Will Graham. With it, it brings a baby, a legally binding birth certificate, and a hope chest full of gifts for her. Nobody except Will thinks this is weird. They are way more obsessed with finding out who the father is, and the media around the trial of Hannibal Lecter is alive with ideas.

    (Alternatively, what if the Scarlet Letter was a dark romantic comedy?)

    Summary

    Will doesn't leave Hannibal's dinner party for his date with the Chesapeake Ripper. As a result, Hannibal alerts Will of his encephalitis that night and uses Will's recovery to explore his curiosity about friendship-- and what makes Will Graham fascinating. Hannibal's growing affinity for Will compels him to use a somewhat softer approach to influencing the man than he had originally planned, and Will isn't impervious to becoming the object of someone's affection after a lifetime of self-imposed social isolation.

    TL;DR: S1 goes in a much fluffier direction as of "Sorbet." Will is Will. Hannibal is Hannibal, just a smidge closer to the man we know and love by the end of S3.
