    Summary

    Will doesn't mind kids so much; they're basically two-legged dogs. Give them food they like, and they'll eat it. Keep them engaged, and they won't get upset. Speak kindly, and they'll listen. And if you need a break, just tire them out so everyone can take a nap.

    It's the parents that are the issue.

    Hannibal Lecter, the neurotic single dad that shouldn't have hired him in the first place if he expected perfection, is an issue.

    In more ways than one.

     

    Or: Hannibal is dramatic and nitpicky, but a very loving father, and Will is determined to win him over.

    Summary

    Prince Hannibal is betrothed to King George only to hear he is dead upon arriving at the castle. However, George's son, Will, is brought in to substitute for his father. Hannibal prefers this switch but Will chivalrously promises not to foist himself upon Hannibal. Hannibal is much annoyed.

    Summary

    Chiyoh never announces her visits, preferring to show up like a bad cold. She never stays longer than a day or two, during which she and Will stare each other down. Will doesn’t say it out loud, because that would be admitting his small, secret fear of her, but he always wonders if she’s planning to push him off the porch, or out the window, or into the Baccara roses.

    It’s a dark night, but not stormy, so Will assumes she neglected to check the forecast. Chiyoh’s talent for arriving just before dinner holds true, though, and Hannibal has gained an appreciation for leftovers in the last few years, which means there will be plenty of trout beurre blanc for all of them.

    Sometimes, she greets them with a few rabbits or a duck or two slung over her shoulder. Chiyoh, breaking tradition, presents Hannibal with a live cat.

    Will does not like cats.

    ***

    Will finds a dog; a cat finds Hannibal; around and between, they find a quiet life together.

    Summary

    The Egalitarian is killing off patrons of the Baltimore Ballet Theatre. To absolutely no one's surprise, Hannibal is one of those patrons.

    In order to catch this killer, Will must pose as Hannibal's date for a series of pretentious social events preceding the opening night of the Ballet.

    (Expect lots of murder, Hannibal being a dramatic sap, and Will being wonderfully coherent without the encephalitis screwing him over.)
