-That bastard! He wasn’t mocking them! He was mocking Will!-
Hannibal is 48 and Will is 36
Will Graham is a troubled 12-year-old boy, thrown about by the foster care system into seventh grade at a boarding school -- and into the domain of Hannibal Lecter. A bond forms through trauma and love, so twisted that the boy can barely hope to navigate it.
-Act 1 (ch.1-19) complete! Hannibal and Will meet, secrets growing slowly until a horrible accident occurs. As Will seeks to recover, Hannibal seeks more control.
-Act 2 (ch.20+) in progress! Below the surface, something dark churns. Will manages school life better than ever, but the past still haunts him, and the future plans to follow suit.
Will was adopted at the age of 12 when his father abandoned him. His parents are very supportive and when Will meets Hannibal Lecter the outcome for Will is way better for the support they provide. Hannibal will find a lot of his efforts to gaslight and manipulate Will scuppered because of George and Sue.
