    Summary

    Somewhere deep beneath the night's sea, Theon dreams.

    There is a ship, long and stern and strangely empty. This is the ship he was taken away on. The water crashes over the sides and soaks him through, but it's warm. It's warm up until the moment it hits his skin, then the chill sinks in, his bare feet numb like he's walking on ice, sore like he's walking on Ice. Something is crawling over the bow, reaching for him, something vast and black but not gold, no, glinting silver in the moonlight.

    A Kraken, he thinks and he is not afraid, he should not be afraid. He reaches for it and pulls back. No, let it come to him. He is not afraid.

    Summary

    The sun loved the moon so much, that every night he died to let him breathe. The moon, didn't have eyes to see that sacrifice, since his eyes were glued onto the earth, who he had dedicated his life into revolving around. The earth was a humble thing, appreciated and didn't understand the moon and sun in equal amounts, he didn't even realise he could be found beautiful by something so out-worldly. And yet, he was still dazzled by the stars and would watch her glide past him for the rest of his life.

    Summary

    The wool of Hannibal's sweater is still damp and slightly prickly, his body radiating warmth beneath Will's hand, solid and real, smooth and firm of form. He may seem carved of ash and stone but as with anyone he is truly flesh and blood and bone. Human. Breakable, perhaps.

    Can't live with him. Can't live without him, Bedelia had said, and Will had known then that she was right. She's still right.

    Summary

    Humans are extremely social creatures who seek out interactions with others, whether they like it or not. Living in solitude is something we can't achieve, no matter how hard we try.

    Even so, we're so pretentious - hiding our darkest secrets and fooling those we love.

    Summary

    Will considers resisting for a brief moment, but what is the point? If Hannibal Lecter wants to have sex with him, he will. Hannibal is a force of nature that cannot be stopped or redirected by something so meager as the will of a man — if Will has learned anything, it is this. Better to let it come, wash over him like the storm, and find his peace in the wreckage.

    Summary

    "You see they consider your kind to be romantic heroes, and who am I to deny the people what they want? They want a rogue knight; a daring, dashing bandit - so I let them have one.
    "Only one though. They may adore their 'gentlemen of the road', but they're also baying for blood. The gallows call to highwaymen, Kuramochi, and this new lad won't be able to resist that call for long."
