2 Works by cgsf in Hannibal (TV)
“I’ll ignore the fact that we’re somehow on a first-name basis now and simply ask—Would you like to come in?”
It was not a strange question, anticipated even, but it clawed at Will, under his fingernails and across his scalp. He didn’t want to be in there. Looking past Hannibal, Will could see the shadows of years, words, threats, and veiled intentions lingering beyond the threshold. He shook his head against the request and instead made himself stand. He felt an inescapable urge to get out of here.
After the fall, Will wakes up in Hannibal's office in Baltimore in 2013, five years earlier.
"The freedom of being outside, alone, unshackled, and whole didn’t bring him any peace. There was no catharsis or certainty. It lacked punctuation at the end of a sentence—his sentence, which had disappeared overnight. He wondered if this would be one of those moments he would look back on later and remark about the before and after. It surely didn’t feel like it."
After Will Graham is released from the BSHCI, he considers where it has left him and what he needs to do next.
