    Summary

    “This is the Magnus Institute, not a creative writing course at university. If that doesn’t agree with him, he can leave.” There was a thud and the sound of rifling tapes. “He can take his bloody tea with him.”

    Martin’s fingers tightened on the saucer. Oh.

    -

    Martin knows better than to talk about it. It's fine. He's fine.

    Summary

    For an uncomfortable moment the line remains eerily quiet and Elias thinks he's been hung up on without noticing. So, with an expression of mild frustration, he goes to end the silent line but there’s a heaving sigh of irate gloom on the static receiver before Peter continues.

    “She’s” the man pauses “left behind a daughter”

    Elias feels an odd, sinking sensation low in his sternum, like he's just swallowed a large smooth stone and feels it achingly pave its way down his chest. He blinks.

    “A daughter?”

    Summary

    "You can't be serious." Jonathan Sims raises his eyes at last to properly look at Georgie, expecting her to laugh and make some quip about finally getting him to put the damn book down, at least.

    "Well, I am," she shoots back.

    He sets his book aside and turns fully towards her, betrayal clear on his face. "A blind date, really?"

    Jon makes the frankly terrible decision to go on a blind date with one Martin Blackwood. Fate ensues. AU where Jon and Georgie are still friends, Georgie likes finding dates for her friends, Martin doesn't work at the institute, and everyone is just a bit happier while canon spooky stuff goes on in the background. Takes place juuust barely pre-canon in the beginning but catches up quickly. Inspired as usual by the wonderful conversations with my friend RavenXavier/somuchbetterthanthat.

    Summary

    Essek knows how his story ends. There is a place in Rexxentrum where executions are carried out, wooden steps leading up to a wooden platform. There hangs a noose, swaying lightly in northern wind, while polished cobblestones shine bright in golden light.  

    There will be birds, Essek imagines, and when the lever is pulled and gravity takes hold of him one last time, he hopes they take flight.

    Summary

    Soulmate AU: Soulmates find their other half when they look into their eyes. After the next time they sleep, they wake with one eye the color of their intended.

    Will Graham avoids eyes. He's never wanted a soulmate, never wanted to be told by the universe who he was supposed to feel a connection to. He already struggles enough with connections, thank you very much. As a psychiatrist, he works with soulmates who have lost their other half through various means, part of a social system that regards the journey to your soulmate as the most important thing a person can do. Coerced by Jack Crawford to consult on a case where the assailant is targeting soulmates, Will finds himself turning to the notorious Dr. Lecter to gain insight on how he's choosing the soulmates to target.

    Things go horribly awry when he looks into Hannibal's eyes, though. The next morning, he wakes up with one eye blue, the other maroon. He's never wanted a soulmate, least of all one behind bars for murdering dozens of people and eating them. Hannibal thinks it's delightful -it's been dreadfully boring since he was locked up.

    Romance, thriller, mayhem, mystery, soulmate au with a realistic twist, and a grumpy Will Graham
