Will wants therapy without the therapist. Hannibal, a barista, is willing to oblige.
Master William Graham is an out of work violin virtuso in 19th century Munich. Hannibal Lecter is a wealthy patron with a lust for...composition. I play fast and loose with history, music, and the German language (which I love, but have not mastered.) Heavily inspired by my very favorite trashy romance novels that could be improved upon with the addition of lovesick murder husbands. Adult content, etc. I proofread it myself, several times but I'm sure there's a typo or two I missed that I'll notice after posting. I beg your gracious forgiveness.
"It's understandable for you to empathize with the victim as well, when you step in the mind of a killer," Hannibal said. "Fear, pain, violation, and death. Repeating the fantasy in the safety of your head so that you can regain control over the experience."
"My head doesn't feel very safe," Will muttered.
Hannibal inclined his head. "The methods we use to protect ourselves from monsters can become monstrous in their own right. Your mind seeks to protect you when you are overwhelmed, and maybe you see yourself as a victim in order to prevent yourself from actually becoming one."
"Or to prevent myself from becoming the killer."
"The two become one. If you destroy yourself, you cannot hurt others, and similarly, no one can hurt you."
Will Graham is having disturbing fantasies about being the victim of horrific crimes. Hannibal wants to help him realize his desires.

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
