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?!?!)
“Hmm,” said a small voice in his ear. “Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind, either. There’s talent, oh my goodness, yes - and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now that’s interesting … So where shall I put you?”
Harry gripped the edges of the stool and thought, “Not Slytherin, not Slytherin.”
“Not Slytherin, eh?” said the small voice. “Are you sure? You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that - no? Well, if you’re sure - better be GRYFFINDOR!”
Now, I know we said things, did things that we didn’t mean, and we fall back into the same patterns, same routine. But your temper’s just as bad as mine is. You’re the same as me, when it comes to love you’re just as blinded.
