    Summary

    Clarice stopped in front of Lecter’s cell and he smiled up at her from his cot. He didn’t greet her, instead launching into a new topic.

    “Do you know the story of Oedipus and the Sphinx, Clarice? The beast promised to eat any who could not answer the riddle. But Oedipus was clever enough to answer the riddle but blind to his fate.”

    “Is this a thinly veiled way of calling me a dense motherfucker?” Clarice replied dryly. Hannibal actually chuckled.

    “Never, Clarice. You’re far too bright for that.”

    Hannibal should not be surprised at the slight chill up his spine he received when Will rejoined him at his side in the marketplace and takes his hand in his. Just the slightest touch, every time, is enough to drive him to the edge of his already questionable sanity.

    Summary

    This is what he was missing earlier, everything about this: the contact, the proximity, Jin’s presence and the sense of wholeness that accompanies it. It’s what he wanted before he even knew it. It’s what he grew to desire and love and protect. After everything, after the frigidity of winter and the chill of loneliness, this warmth is what he always needed yet never thought to search for.

    Summary

    Whenever his aunts were involved, surprises weren't 'hit-or-miss' so much as just 'miss'. He couldn't say they didn't try, but most everything they did seemed to want to get Kubo to forget half his genes came from his father. At least, that's what it felt like. His mother's side was rather xenophobic to put it accurately as possible. That didn't mix well when your sister's husband was American and their child ended up living with you after said sister and husband had died.

    It's been a little less than two years since Kubo's parents had died and custody of him had been given to his mother's relatives in Japan. A place he hadn't been to since he was born, with a language he'd had no inkling of how to speak. Kubo wasn't necessarily unhappy. Just... unhappy. It's complicated.

    Summary

    When the stars threw down their spears
    And water'd heaven with their tears:
    Did he smile his work to see?
    Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

     

    Hannibal's kills are clean and precise. Will is craving something a little...messier.
