hannibal is so in love with will

agentdelphine  asked:

who are your main canons

(Note that just because the below are my main go-to people, it doesn’t mean I’m their main Jack or Soldier.)

OW canon mains:

Crossover canon mains: (and if I don’t recognize you as a crossover, forgive me)

Personal canons: (each confined to their own separate verse)

  • @agentdelphine - He loves Del. She is his wife in main, but they have A/Us where she’s a senior internal affairs investigator, a thorn in his side, and others. This is always so fun because we can try almost anything, no matter how weird it sounds and it’s always great.
  • @opheliaavery - In 2016 & 2017, Jack is a very broken army vet. Ophelia does and doesn’t help, but the stakes are so high for him and so not for her. She makes him despair in some ways, I think, so that he questions what he does and who he is.
  • @notamongrel - Mo is good for Jack, she’s tough when she has to be and kind when she can be. They work well & love each other whether or not they say it. It was one of those cases in which two characters said, “yeah, I want this one.” and off they went. It’s a very mature and well-balanced dynamic too, which is fun.
  • @bloodlotusmagic - Okay, I love Nedra so, so, so much. She’s a great character no matter what verse she’s in, and Jack loves the living hell out of her. She’s so sweet, and the dynamic with her and Soldier: 76 is fantastic for that reason. Her genuineness helps him remember the positives when he forgets sometimes. And she’s so damn adorable too.
  • @puddlechild - Anni is so great. Well-written, and such a great broken hero & reluctant hero. She’s easy to play with, and mun sweet af. One of my favorite things about the muse is prickly she can be, but it’s the defense mechanism of a good heart.
  • @talonsaconite - I’ve played with Kladdi before, but this is a case where I can just tell that our characters are going to thread well. Joe is so awesome and terrible, plus she and Jack sizzle like acid in a thread. It’s great.
  • @legacy-hero - Estelle seems unflappable sometimes, but man she goes off if you hit the right buttons. Mostly she and Jack have leisurely talks, occasionally she is A/U adoptive mom. I only regret how damn slow I am not to play more.
  • @like-a-phoenyx - This is Jack’s kid, and he’s very proud of her. Sometimes people roll their eyes when it comes to OCs being related to canons, but I think that’s such a petty and short-sighted stance to take. Nyx is well-written, with a polite and talented mun. It’d be a waste and missed chance NOT to write with her as Jack’s daughter.
  • @thesilverfrye - Elise is love. This is another where I’m too slow/ behind. I love her character, and I love writing with her, and I love chatting with the mun. Enthusiastic, great sense of humor, cute as a damn button.
  • @awokenbymadness - I’ve FINALLY just started to write with Keki, but I’ve been delighted. It’s another of those cases where, even if you haven’t written together a lot yet, you just know it’s going to work. It’s a great character concept, nice mun, and thoughtfully written.
  • @vcnus-flvtrxp - Mikaela – she’s so damn sweet, I keep trying to get us written and I just flub up, which is too bad, because you write her perfectly well and put careful consideration into how you tell her story. Kick your ol’ dad off his ass and make him reply to you! ❤
  • @historyxboy - BILLYYYYYYY!  2017 Jack will never get this kid into ROTC, but I love getting a chance to see sweet & dear Billy be so damn mean to someone. He has a hard life, let him get it out somewhere.
  • @kellancallic - All beard, Ana, and mansion envy aside, Kellan is unique in the same way Ophelia is – they both have an ability to awake the corruptible in someone uncorruptible. With someone like Jack, so dead certain in his ethics and morals, it’s a great treat to work with a couple of characters who can make him do ugly things.
  • @svndancer - Eddie is at the bottom so I could have space for the epic fake ID picture for Soldier: 76 (below). I don’t think I need to say more than that. Although I love Eddie because somehow gunfights and fistfights and lock-picking and cake-baking all go together with her, and well too.

Hi! I don't know if you've already written about this so if you did, feel free to ignore my question! I believe it is canon that Hannibal is in love with Will but struggle to see it as reciprocal. If unrequited, isn't the story ultimately a variation of the old and kinda derogatory tale "non-straight guy falls for straight male friend" and is doomed to pine forever because straight friend will never love him back in *that* (erotic, sensual, sexual, you name it) way? What do you think?

“If unrequited”… that’s a pretty big if! Like you I tend to stress Will as an oppositional force in his relationship with Hannibal. His reluctance and resistance are so very important to me! But I still find it mighty hard, outright impossible really, to declare outright that Hannibal’s love for Will is unrequited. While it’s debatable whether Will returns Hannibal’s love in kind, it seems to me incontrovertible that he does return it in his own way. That’s the problem for Will. If he didn’t return Hannibal’s love, his life would be ten million times easier. So the equivalent tale wouldn’t be ‘non-straight guy falls for straight friend;’ it’d be something more along the lines of ‘non-straight guy falls for tormented, closeted friend.’

Hannibal is definitely doomed to pine – and personally I thank god for it everyday – but that’s due to the fact that the demands he makes of Will as a partner are so impossible for Will to comply with. Those demands don’t spring from Hannibal’s sexuality or the hot burning fire of his love – maybe then it would fit into the mold of the derogatory trope (TV Tropes calls it “gayngst”) in which a non-straight man is depicted as predatory and undeserving of affection? Hannibal’s demands are mostly concerning aestheticized murder. He commits acts of cruelty that he sees as beautiful, and he wants Will to join him in committing those acts together. If Will were to embrace and accept Hannibal, he’d have to embrace and accept the very real, very present part of himself that relishes in brutal violence, and Will just can’t do that, even though Hannibal is convinced he’d be a happier person for it.

I’m leery of trying to use analysis to make stories conform to tropes, derogatory or otherwise, because I am a big believer that a good story is ALWAYS going to push against the confines of a trope. A good story should be so jam-packed with complexity, ambiguity, and contradictory character motivation that it can’t be pigeon-holed into a simple logline of ‘older man loves a younger man who can’t love him back.’ But good stories are often aware of the tropes they intersect with, and can even play off of them for artistic effect. Hannibal’s Florentine moping in S3 has self-conscious shades of gayngst. Hannibal transforms himself into a deliberate stereotype in a fit of petulant spite – he does Death in Venice except it’s Death in Florence. It’s romantic and absurd. There isn’t enough Montrachet in the world for Bedelia to cope with that.

And then there’s fanfic, which does all sorts of interesting things with familiar tropes. For instance in Greatest Show (self-pimpery of hiatus-fic, whoops!), Hannibal pines for Will with the force of a shimmering supernova; it’s real, but it also becomes a performance to which he’s inviting other people to react. And because other people don’t understand Hannibal and Will’s relationship, they have only the familiar trope to guide them. Thus gayngst becomes a framework for how Hannibal himself wants that relationship perceived. He sees the trope, he works the trope, it’s just one of many tools he can use to manipulate people and shape his ends. I think if you as a writer have a perspective on a trope, if you’re cultivating an angle, then you’re already haring towards something socially conscious and original.

I know we all got burned with Johnlock not getting technically confirmed in season 4, but I'm dying to let you know of a show that does follow through in the same sense-Hannibal. The subtext is loud and the shipping between the two main characters is essentially made canon-especially so when the executive producer himself (Bryan Fuller) openly ships it too! You guys should check it out.

Hey Lovely!

Sorry I literally just saw this! Thanks for the info! I personally couldn’t get into Hannibal, but it’s good to know that somewhere out there, some shippers are happy :)


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?!?!)


can we just take a moment and think about what would’ve happened if Bryan Fuller wrote Sherlock.










(look how fricking excited he is omg)





just let this man write season 5, he’ll fix everything

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’.

And in the taste confounds the appetite:
Therefore love moderately; long love doth so;
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.”
