    Summary

    Born a prince in the Kingdom of Raki, Adam's autism is regarded as a curse by his father and the healers he brings in to cure him. Adam's trusty knight, Harlan, isn't so sure the boy is cursed, just lonely. When the two find a mangy boy on the streets who isn't afraid of Adam's oddities, inspiration strikes the knight: Harlan hires the boy as a squire and Adam gets a new friend. Will this arrangement break the curse?

    Basically a riff on the movie Penelope and the idea that curses only have power if you believe in them.

    Summary

    Hannibal is locked up in the Baltimore Asylum for the Criminally Insane. Supposedly he's in maximum security but he pretty much just breaks out and leaves any time it suits him.

    And it suits him to break out whenever he thinks Will needs him.

    I mean, they forgot Will's birthday! Come on, wouldn't you?

    Fill for the meme.

    Summary

    Because for Will Graham it was not about choosing to suffer, but suffering through a choice. He just wasn't sure, as he poured the painfully green Agent Starling a bitter cup of black coffee in his Florida kitchenette, whether this particular choice would be painful or affirming.

    "And what exactly makes you think I'll be any help?" he asked.

    "Because you know him better than anyone," she said, sipping politely, "and because, personally, I think you're the reason he ran in the first place."

    He'd give her points for creativity, but as far as he was concerned she had a lot to learn about the inner workings and desires of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

    AU Omega-verse. Will&Hannibal previous marriage, child.

    Summary

    "You have the manner of one who is accustomed to being hungry," Hannibal observed.

    Will gave an awkward half-shrug, one shoulder higher than the other. "We were poor. I was hungry a lot."
