Okay so this is me formally requesting more Hannibal as the monster under Will's bed because this concept is just too amazing. Does Will grow to care for the monster under his bed? Does he confide in him? Does he think of him as a protector and feel safe knowing he is there? Does Hannibal eventually take Will to the dark place beneath his bed where he resides? SO MANY POSSIBILITIES.
sequel to this post
Will curled under his blankets, head tucked tightly and securely beneath his pillows to keep any noise from sneaking into his head. The day had been long with too many people with too many thoughts and urges causing Will to hide in the bathroom stall until his teacher had found him.
