    Summary

    Hannibal is out shopping when the small boy runs up to him and bites him on the hand.

    It is not a playful act. The child bites hard, and then he grinds his teeth in and holds on.

    There is for Hannibal a moment of outrage, in which he considers striking the child to knock him away. Hannibal’s face curls, for just a microsecond, into a snarl, and astonishingly he realizes that the boy, who is looking up at him with fearsome defiance, his jaws still locked around the side of his hand, has not missed this.

    Hannibal sets his face to communicate a shocked but stoic response to the assault, and this is what his father sees, when perhaps three seconds later he crouches next to the boy to coax him into loosening his hold.

     

    AKA, the one where Will is the single father of a troubled little boy, and Hannibal is enchanted by them both.

    Summary

    AU in which Will Graham is a disenchanted journalist, resigned to his fate of back-page wedding announcements at Tattler News. He has a watch that beeps to tell him when to get water, when to go for a walk, and when to eat, but he hasn't yet found a program to tell him how to feel when the Chesapeake Ripper of all people sends Fanmail.

    Dear Will Graham,
    I adored your analysis of the Minnesota Shrike. How quickly you boxed him into a corner and revealed his hand! Surely the ladies on campus will sleep better knowing to avoid anyone that looks remotely like them with a father in tow. That, or perhaps you’ve inspired them all to dye their hair a poignant shade of blonde until the next killer comes along.
    I wonder if your clever little mind would be able to catch someone like me, however; would you be interested in playing a game, Mr. Graham? I’ve grown bored as of late, and the city is not much to entertain these days. You can respond in your new column. Congratulations, by the way.
    -Chesapeake Ripper.

    He really shouldn’t be excited that there are lives at stake. In reality, though, Will hasn’t felt much in a long, long time.

    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

    Summary

    When the call connects, Will says, “I know what kind of crazy I am, but I’m not this kind of crazy.”

    “Will?” Dr. Lecter says.

    “Yes, hi, sorry,” Will says. “It’s me. There’s a baby on my porch.”

    Summary

    Will Graham is a man that sits precariously on a thin line between worlds, so close to falling on either side, especially in the latter half of season two. What if he had fallen to Hannibal's side before it was too late, and told him the truth?
