I love the contrast of these two scenes. In the first one, Hannibal’s dressed down, he’s brought something simple, he’s trying to break through Will’s defenses. Will takes the food perfunctorily, and then is pleasantly surprised to discover he likes it.
In the second, Hannibal’s full on himself. Here, person with fever and undiagnosed encephalitis, listen to my long story about what I made you.
And contrary to the joke about Will insulting Hannibal’s soup, Will is actually pleased. Touched even.
Wow, I showed up unannounced on your doorstep late at night with an escaped serial killer in tow and had a seizure and let the guy escape and then drove off in your car when you told me to wait while you summoned help. After all that dragging you into my world, you made me chicken soup.
Johnny had been in the hospital, paralyzed from his middle-back down. He shifted in his hospital stretcher before a sharp pain shot through his chest, one of his many third-degree burn scratching painfully against the material. He couldn’t help but let out a quiet yelp, feeling the burning sensation rushing through almost his entire middle-section.
“Johnny, you okay?” Letting out a small whimper, the dark-skinned boy attempted to regain his composure. Squeezing his eyes shut, he held still, waiting for the pain to return to its constant level once more. It never went away, though, and for the first time, it occurred to him that he might not ever heal. The constant murmuring, the overly-kind staff, the gang worrying…
“Y-Yeah, I’m… fine,” he managed, trying his hardest not to let the younger boy know just how much pain he was in. “I’m fine.”
I was waiting to make a celebratory post at 100 followers, but I had a better idea. Till we hit 224, we’ll celebrate follower milestones when they correspond to polarshippy episodes.
We just passed 80 and 92, so here are some icons. [source]
As always for follower milestones, leave something in the ask box, and I’ll do my best to make it happen. Fanfiction request, cosplay request, journal spotlight, displaying your favorite piece of JouMai art/fic/video/role play/etc.
