“On the Fall” or “How Will and Hannibal survive their post-murderous orgasmic plunge into Season 4″
Let’s just get out the way that Hannibal picked that hideout out near the cliff because he a) knew he was going to need to escape from the authorities someday long before he met Will (remember when he said he had taken Miriam Lass there?) and b) he most likely trained and/or had survived a fall from a great height in the past. Also, people who tend to have total physical control over their bodies (i.e. martial artists or acrobats) are more likely to survive falls from substantial heights. (unlike the rest of us, myself included :p). I’m thinking Hannibal, when he picked the hideout, knew that if the time ever came, he would escape “falling” to his death, knowing that most people would think he plunged to his death, when he actually had survived.
Now let’s get to Will. Will, after giving into his urges, pulled Hannibal and himself off the cliff. He most likely believed there was no way he would be able to have a viable life on the run with Hannibal because he had never lived that way before. But thank god for Hannibal’s resolve. I’m thinking Hannibal chose to embrace Will so close to the cliff because it gave Will the opportunity to either pulled them off, after which Hannibal would save them, OR they would just make out on the cliff edge, which is actually little romantic….now that I think about it…with the moonlight…and all…
Anyway, I digress. Hannibal positioned himself near the cliff knowing that there was the possibility of Will pulling them off, allowing them to have a plausible get-away from Jack and the FBI. But, like I’ve said before, Will probably wanted to die and take Hannibal with him; seeing it as his ONLY option. So, Will probably let his body go limp as they fell.
“It was the first thing my dad taught me, you know..”
Hannibal watched him as Will approached his space, sat between his legs and basically made him his bed, just because he can. Will could feel the smile radiating off Hannibal’s face.
“..that here in the sea, the stars are your comrades.”
He lazily points a finger upward, following a train of stars.
“These two are your friends.” Will says as he pauses and shifts to a constellation opposite. “Spring up, fall down.”
He points to one star, directly above him. “And that’s your best friend.”
“Polaris.” Hannibal supplies. “The star that would always take you home.”
Will smiled to himself. “I used to call bullshit on it. One star couldn’t just be able to miraculously substitute directions.” Hannibal felt his body getting heavier, along with an audible sigh. Will closes his eyes.
"But maybe… I take it back.”
Silence hung in the air. Will hadn’t felt this comfortable in years.
Hanniversary request for @imlostinthedream who wanted Will and Hannibal cuddling under the night sky. I’m sorry I used a stock photo for the stars (I collect too many of them ||orz||), but this one was so PRETTY.
A/N: This is just something that has been stuck in my brain all week, and I had to get it out in order to move on with my requests… If you haven’t watched the Graham Norton Show, I highly recommend you do because it is gold, especially the episodes featuring Ben seriously go watch it In any case, let me know what you think and wether or not I should write a part two… ;D
