Summary: Will and Hannibal have known each other since their late teens. Will’s family had moved to Lithuania for a few years during his father’s tenure in the army. The Grahams became friends with the Lecters and a instant bond was formed between their two sons. Over the years, Will and Hannibal had become extremely close, almost like brothers, until Will visited Hannibal in New York for a week while the latter was attending medical school. From there, their relationship got…well let’s just say, a little complicated. Hannibal AU, mostly taking place a year ago. Will, who now is 32, is working at Johns Hopkins University, teaching classes in the psychology department. Hannibal, now 37, visits him while attending a medical conference in Baltimore. From there, we learn about their complicated history…

About an hour later…
“Okay, why are you so quiet? You’re acting really suspicious.” Beverly asked Will in between bites of her sandwich.
Will only shrugged. He was quiet because he was thinking about Hannibal wanting him to stay over at his place instead of Molly’s during the visit. The way his friend had looked at him was something he had missed greatly and his thoughts were consumed with Hannibal’s smile accompanied by his voice.
Well, whatever works for you, of course. I would love to have you around more.
…Dammit, Hannibal. Will almost doubled over on top of the table, but he stopped himself from making a scene.
God, he’s still incredibly sexy…what the fuck am I going to do?
“Will, oh my god, just tell me. What in the world is bothering you?” Beverly rolled her eyes. She knew her friend’s behavior had something to do with Hannibal.
“I’m okay. Just stressed out about this party.” Will lied. Well sort of. He was a little stressed out about the faculty party, however, he was more anxious about his former best friend (and fuck buddy, and maybe, possibly, the future love of his life, but he wasn’t willing to accept that, yet) sleeping in his apartment right now, waiting for him to come home to have dinner with….and catch up on…life…
After Will met up with Beverly a while ago at his favorite sandwich shop on the university’s campus (you remember, the place where they kind of make the same gourmet sandwiches that Hannibal used to make for Will and Abigail’s fishing trips?), he looked on edge. Beverly was immediately concerned that her friend’s plan, being honest with everyone after Hannibal’s visit, was already backfiring.
Ugh, this plan is going to blow up in his face…but what can I do? He’s an adult…Beverly silently thought to herself, watching her friend fidget in his chair.
She decided to take a chance and suss out how Will was feeling at the moment. Maybe she could convince him to be honest early so he would feel less burdened by the ordeal.
“Sooo…how’s Hannibal?” Beverly slowly asked, looking at her friend cautiously, twirling her straw in her water glass.
Will almost choked on his sandwich. He had been so caught up thinking about Hannibal, that he forgot that he hadn’t mentioned anything about him to Beverly when they first sat down to eat. “Um…he’s fine..” He initially coughed then struggled to recover.
Beverly didn’t answer back immediately. She only stared at her friend, knowing full well something was going on and he was keeping it away from her, so she tried again.
“What do you guys have planned for tonight?” She asked with an eyebrow raised, furtively glancing up from her water glass.
Will shifted in his chair. “Hannibal suggested making dinner so we could…catch up…” He started. He was now thinking about seeing a bit of Hannibal’s naked body when his friend had stretched out on the bed in his guest room before falling asleep.
Will also thought about the last time they fucked.

So here’s what happened with Best Picture for those who missed it:
Warren Beatty somehow was given the envelope for Best Actress instead of Best Picture. When opened, it said the winner was Emma Stone for La La Land. He was confused, then read out La La Land. The crew came on stage to accept the award.
It was then the envelope mistake was discovered and Jimmy Kimmel came out to fix the problem and announce Moonlight as the correct winner.
The La La Land crew took it with incredible grace and cleared the stage for Moonlight. Pretty much went as well as a mistake like this could.
Edit: I wrote this right before bed and forgot to mention Faye Dunaway was the one to actually read out the wrong movie. She thought Warren was trying to draw out the moment (as presenters do at these awards) and didn’t realize he had the wrong card.
What she means:
I'm tired of tumblr hating on la la land just because moonlight won. Both are great movies and the deserved the awards. But this blue hell site just wants to be immature and act like la la land was terrible. Of course moonlight definitely deserved best Picture, but you don't need to bash one movie and the people who liked it
My problem is that Jimmy Urine looks like he spent the first 21 years of his life forcibly locked in someone’s basement playing video games and subsisting entirely off of diet coke until one day Steve was running from the cops, broke into the basement to hide, discovered Jimmy, hosed him off with a pressure washer, and then started a band with him, and despite all of this he is the most attractive man I have ever seen
