    Summary

    “Pure empathy,” says Hannibal Lecter, and it will be some time before he realises his mistake.

    “Pure empathy,” lies Will Graham, in careful agreement, and knows that it’s only a matter of time before he’s found out.

    “That must be quite a burden to bear,” says Hannibal, and Will meets his eyes, sips his tea, and knows, for once in his life, that he is not the only liar in the room.

    Summary

    Inevitably, Will wondered how Hannibal was coping with the trauma.

    He had no doubt that Hannibal was handling it elegantly.

    He said he wouldn’t abandon you, a vile thought twisted through Will’s mind. But there was no answer to that accusation. There was no way for Hannibal to hold true to his promise to see Will through this darkness. Maybe if they had never been lovers, his psychiatrist would help him now. Maybe in that world, Will could peel away the cloying tar from his skin and rebuild a home beneath his ribs. The winter might warm and expose the earth beneath, and Will would go digging for the bodies buried there, excavating and tilling the soil so that he was not just death.

    There will yet be a spring for us, Hannibal’s voice came. For you, myself, and Abigail.

    Will Graham is imprisoned in the BSHCI and believes himself to be the Copycat Killer. He has killed Abigail, and though Hannibal survived Will's murderous psychotic episode, their relationship has not. Will may no longer be sick, but his life is over.

    (Or so he tells himself, hands over his eyes.)

    Summary

    Will didn’t know how this was happening.

    He didn’t know why.

    But it was.

    Even if he couldn’t trust his eyes, not always anyway, he trusted what he felt, tactile sensation, and everything he felt said that this was happening. His body didn’t have the aches and pains and scars he knew. There was no knot of scar tissue causing issues with his shoulder from being stabbed. No smile across his stomach from a linoleum knife or bullet wound in his non-stabbed shoulder.

    He was his relatively untouched teenager self, brain too much for most to handle and awkward social abilities that had landed him a full-ride to Tulane off of his high IQ and ability to pass a test – so long as it wasn’t a psych exam, though now that he knew what he knew he’d be willing to bet that was changed.

    In fact…as plans and plots started to come together, he was counting on it.

    It would be a long game.

    Almost twenty years.

    A different Will would be sorry for all those who would die between then and now, let alone those that would come after, but as he sat down and began the first of many lists that would shape his future for the next decade or more, he didn’t feel any guilt at all.

    Summary

    Chiyoh pulled a manila envelope out of the shoulder bag she was wearing. “Passports and driver's licenses for both of you, and the paperwork on a house in British Columbia, in Will's new name.”

    “So eager to be rid of us?” Hannibal smiled.

    “Like I said, more trouble than you're worth,” she said, but she was smiling too.
