My interpretation of Hannibal and Will as Hades and Persephone, Alphonse Mucha style. Originally planned for the @hannibalcreative HannibalOdyssey event, but I’m way past deadline since this turned out to be a LOT more complicated/detailled than I’d originally planned.

I have not been too fond of 2017, but it brought me Hannibal as well as the Fannibals. I don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t discovered this fandom and made the friends that I’ve made. Thank you all and here’s to a better 2018!
Today I visited the Santa Maria della Vittoria Church in Rome, where we fannibals can find something very familiar…
Santa Maria della Vittoria (English: Our Lady of Victory) is a Roman Catholic titular church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It was begun in 1605 and completed in 1626 by the architects Carlo Maderno and Giovanni Battista Soria.
The Church is designed with a Baroque style and it is also famous for housing a Bernini’s masterpiece, Ecstasy of St. Teresa, situated on the Cornaro Chapel, where our beloved “skull, graven in the floor”, reminder of mortality, is placed. 😊
What do you do when you lose the love of your life only to meet the very image of them yet again? When time reverses itself, and the teacup reassembles, wouldn’t you indulge? Try for a second chance?
After the battle with the Great Red Dragon, both Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham embrace just before their fall into the sea. Hannibal survives the plunge, but Will was not so fortunate. In a constant state of melancholy, Hannibal mourns the loss. However, the tides will shift once an unexpected stranger appears.
