- Prompt: »I prefer protege/paternal to romantic, and if possible I’d like something with a mythical or surreal feeling but I’m pretty flexible.«
“I changed Laura Marling’s lyrics from “your only doll” a bit for this one :)
This commission was a bit tricky, mostly because I was sitting for quite some time n thought about smth fitting. In between I thought about gods n stuff, n then about Abraham having to sacrifice Isaac. But despite the allurance of the theme it didn’t seem to really reflect Hannibal/Abigails situation. So I instead went more with the paternal theme n wanted Hannibal to cradle Abigail/Abigail almost crawling into Hannibal seeking protection n love n clinging to this idea he planted in her head. But nevermind what Hannibal feels for her n what plans he had for their murder family, he cannot keep the girl after he lost the “cup”/Will. At least he won’t let her go alone, as he (supposedly) send Will with her into the afterlife.
Hope this fill is okay despite the lack of more mythical things V___V”
“But he seeks touch, engages in conversation, welcomes Will’s company because those were the things he wanted - now that he had the capacity to want at all. It’s as simple as the rest of him. And then Hannibal surprises him with a request. "Can I stay with you again tonight? The whole of it, I mean. I won’t keep you awake.” -Omega Point
