    Summary

    Molly deals with the aftermath.

    Frowning, Molly turns to retrieve two mugs from the cupboard. As she slides them from the cupboard she asks, “You think they’ll come back?”

    “It isn’t likely they’ve left,” Freddie explains, eyes trailing over Molly’s hands as she sets the mugs down and pours their coffee. “Jack Crawford is looking for them in Florence. Hannibal’s ex-psychiatrist turned up a week ago missing a leg. You tell me what continent they’re on.”

    The mug Molly is holding clatters against the counter top loudly, and coffee sloshes everywhere.

    “Excuse me?” Molly finds herself laughing, sharp voiced and flabbergasted. She turns again, enough to see Freddie, smirking and staring back at her from the kitchen table.

    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.

    Summary

    After very publicly (some would argue theatrically) losing his mind and murdering three young women in an unconscious state, FBI consultant Will Graham is sentenced to serve three consecutive life sentences in the notorious Shawshank State Prison. Upon arrival, he is unsettled to find himself in a cell neighbouring that of infamous serial killer Dr Hannibal Lecter. Having already spent twelve years incarcerated, Dr Lecter has established a fearful reputation for himself inside the prison walls, and amuses himself by dealing in fine contraband.

    When Will approaches Lecter with an unusual request, the two gradually strike up a friendship which, over the years, develops into a powerful infatuation that will change them both irreversibly. But prison is no fairy-tale world, and there are dangers lurking around every corner - the violent captain of the guards, Jack Crawford; the scheming warden, Frederick Chilton; and the brutal gang known as the Sisters, led by the murderer Francis Dolarhyde.

    And then there is the secret which Will is hiding in his cell. A secret which, sooner or later, will change everything.

    Summary

    Will and Hannibal have finally (finally!) managed to get together in the same time and place, without anyone trying to shoot at them or arrest them. Which doesn't necessarily mean anything about navigating their new life together is going to be easy. There might still be one or two tiny little issues left to work out.

    Other than a little flash-forward at the very beginning, this follows on linearly picking up right after the previous chunk of story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Blood. It's not absolutely essential to have read that one first, though.

    On temporary hiatus right now for wonky brain reasons but is NOT abandoned, I promise, I will finish this story if I have to do it from my deathbed which, hopefully, will not be the case.)

    Summary

    Will didn’t know how this was happening.

    He didn’t know why.

    But it was.

    Even if he couldn’t trust his eyes, not always anyway, he trusted what he felt, tactile sensation, and everything he felt said that this was happening. His body didn’t have the aches and pains and scars he knew. There was no knot of scar tissue causing issues with his shoulder from being stabbed. No smile across his stomach from a linoleum knife or bullet wound in his non-stabbed shoulder.

    He was his relatively untouched teenager self, brain too much for most to handle and awkward social abilities that had landed him a full-ride to Tulane off of his high IQ and ability to pass a test – so long as it wasn’t a psych exam, though now that he knew what he knew he’d be willing to bet that was changed.

    In fact…as plans and plots started to come together, he was counting on it.

    It would be a long game.

    Almost twenty years.

    A different Will would be sorry for all those who would die between then and now, let alone those that would come after, but as he sat down and began the first of many lists that would shape his future for the next decade or more, he didn’t feel any guilt at all.
