Will isn’t sure.A meditation on a subject I’ve been thinking about for some time - how exactly do you go about loving someone who also wants to eat you? This fandom, eh? The things it makes us do.
Will remembered Hannibal’s flushed skin under his palms, the heat of his body. “This afternoon, I thought about blood. I thought about flesh, your flesh. You felt so real. So human.”
Hannibal didn’t bother to keep his piqued curiosity hidden. He had no need to pretend anymore. “The body is a gift to one’s lover,” he said, after a beat of consideration. “A sacrifice to their pleasure, that yet receives pleasure in return.”
How do you think Hannibal would react after Bedelia's miscarriage? "Sweet & loving" or "there's no topic, this never happened"?
Sweet and loving all the way. It would a strong, but silent kind of support because Bedelia would not want to talk about it.The loss would hurt her more than she expected and the last thing she would want is to be treated like a fragile creature. And Hannibal knows that, so he would be by her side, loving her and always ready to provide her with anything she needs, without pressuring her.
All right, all these feels in the morning, someone ask me a happy question now.
I was rewatching e11, the episode where Hannibal tells Dolarhyde to go kill Will’s family. And it reminded of how much I love Molly and that scene in particular, even though she is a minor character with very little screen time.
Molly is SO kickass. She managed to think of a seriously smart plan to get her and her son out of the house alive, in a situation where it would have
completely justifiable to be paralyzed with terror or to act irrationally. The general response you see in a situation like that is the characters hiding under their bed or something, which is useless and everyone knows it gets people killed anyways.
I mean that scene is a real horror scene and it’s SO intense, I literally end up crying every time I watch because it’s so good and it makes me so happy that they actually make it out alive. They managed to escape the RED DRAGON. I’m so glad Molly wasn’t just killed off and treated like another plot point that can be removed after she served her purpose.
Seriously, I think Molly is amazing and deserves 100 percent more credit. She is strong, hella brave, smart and absolutely badass. And I hope she is happy and safe and far away from any murderous attacks on her family.
Bless you Bryan Fuller for giving us so many badass female characters, it is highly appreciated.
I never liked the idea of Will’s dad being a jerk,(like he is in ALL fics) I always thought he was just a guy that didn’t know how to express his love for his son in more open ways, after all Will never talked in a bad way about him, and even some of the things he loves are things his dad taught him.
I ended up joking over twitter that his dad was Ron bc they share many hobbies and the way they live, and well a joke led up to this…(Hannigram are still on the run tho but Ron doesn’t watch tv and lives in the middle of nowhere so he doesn’t know/care his son-in-law is a serial killer)
Hannibal will never let Will live down that his dad accepted him officially, Will regrets it so much
Bonus (how do you know what human meat tastes like wtf?!?!)
He’s never thought of Hannibal as being capable of love. ‘Cause like most of us he probably had love put off on a kind of pedestal, as an idea, a more perfect thing, as he made the awful realization ‘Oh crap, maybe this thing I’m feeling is like love’. It’s so dirty and awful and… you know… I don’t know. I’m basically making this up on the spot, but that would be my answer for why he might not have arrived at or realized that thought. Because look at Hannibal and you could be like… nice suits, great kitchen, great conversations, nice hair, you know, but you wouldn’t go anything like… ‘Wow, what a loving guy’.
Hugh Dancy about why Will didn’t realize that Hannibal was in love with him sooner than Season 3
