Bunny High School AU
  • Bonbon: In the swimming club. Can this girl eat chocolate or what?! Bonbon is constantly chewing down bars of chocolate at super-speed after swimming class. (I'm actually not surprised. Swimming at her speed takes a lot of energy!)
  • Bunnie: In the gymnastic club. Bunnie loves eating apples, and staying positive. Everyone seems to be quite fond of her.
  • Carmen: One of the directors of the Drama Club. Carmen mostly directs romantic comedies. Fun fact: she loves chocolate sweets, especially ones with nuts in them!
  • Chrissy: Her full name (according to her doting big sister Francine) is Christine. She models for the fashion club, and everyone agrees she looks great in polka-dots. She's great at staying awake.
  • Claude: In the Comics Club. Due to his love of video games and comic books, some say he's pretty geeky. He truly admires Mira.
  • Coco: In the writing club. Coco's fond of writing stories backwards, though no one knows why. Shes pretty enigmatic, though two things are sure: She's into ancient artifacts, and she's one of sweetest rabbits, despite being a little strange.
  • Cole: In the art club. Cole loves painting round fruit and tropical resorts!
  • Doc: In the book club. Doc really is a book worm! Not only does he spend most of his time in the library, he also types out his own short stories on his laptop. (Or maybe it's fan fiction. Who knows?)
  • Dotty: In the tennis club. Dotty is a always talking, usually about herself. She really is an interesting subject though. Out of all of the whacky animals in school, she's the craziest. (Her eyes turn red when she's shocked!) She's also pretty into interior-designing, but she has some weird ides...
  • Francine: Her full name (according to her cute little sister Chrissy) is Francois. She designs for the fashion club, and everyone knows she always has her sister model polka-dots. She's great at pretending to sleep.
  • Gabi: In the music piano. She likes playing the piano, and wants to sing to, but she's so bad at it, she isn't allowed to. So, her desire to use her voice is spent on talking. Day and night, she'll always find something to talk about! It's usually about her new hair cut.
  • Gaston: In the science club. Gaston is a rich rabbit from France, and Marcel's childhood friend. This bunny is very grumpy, and always cursing in French. In his downtime, he watches lots of horror films, it seems.
  • Genji: An otaku in the comic club. Genji seems to like anime and manga, especially horror ones! His poetry is pretty popular in school.
  • Hopkins: In the cooking club. Hopkins is very kiddy and childish at heart. He loves video games, and always brings 3DS to school. All his friends agree that his bedroom resembles a toy room.
  • Mira: In the makeup club. Mira is pretty famous at school for being a hero. She once got invited to join the super hero club, but she turned them down, since there are boys in that club. (She wants it to be a magical girl group like in the manga she reads.)
  • O'Hare: In the music club. O'Hare likes to play the ukulele, but he's also gotten so used to the acoustic guitar, he air-guitars in class! He's also pretty self-centered. He doesn't talk much, but he's all-ears for people who'll talk about him. He even got Cole to paint him into his tropical resort paintings!
  • Pippy: In the debate club. She's in the ACTION FOOD SQUAD! Her phrase is "HOPPING HOTCAKES!!!" The squad doesn't do much. They're just all bffs who hang out and have their own 'action food' phrases to say. Other members include Freckles, Pate, Pinky, Truffles, and Victoria. She's also Mira's manager, since they're best friends.
  • Ruby: In the photography club. Ruby enjoys taking photos of the night sky. Especially on nights with full moons. Animals who meet her might think she's sick, but she's just albino.
  • Snake: On the soccer team. Snake is very quick and silent, neither seen nor heard. Sometimes he hides in cardboard boxes! Other than being ninja-like, he enjoys playing video games.
  • Tiffany: Tiffany's nickname is 'The Drama Club's Audrey Hepburn'. She's rich and always catching up on her beauty sleep (even in class!) As a result, she's a gorgeous celebrity.
  • Toby: In the gardening club. Toby loves rainy days and swimming. He has feminine hobbies and transferred here because he was bullied about it at his last school. This bunny was very surprised to find how welcoming everyone at his new school is! (They're all pretty whacky, so it's fine.)

Dr Lecter, not wishing to call attention to himself, waits until the other passengers have picked through this sorry fare, waits until they have gone to the bathroom and most have fallen asleep. Far at the front, a stale movie plays. Still he waits with the patience of a python. Beside him the small boy has fallen asleep over his computer game. Up and down the broad airplane, the reading lights wink out.

Then and only then, with a furtive glance around, Dr Lecter takes from beneath the seat in front of him, his own lunch in an elegant yellow box trimmed with brown from Fauchon, the Paris caterer. It is tied with two ribbons of silk gauze in complementary colors. Dr Lecter has provisioned himself with wonderfully aromatic truffled pate de foie gras, and Anatolian figs still weeping from their severed stems. He has a half-bottle of a St Estephe he favors. The silk bow yields with a whisper.

Dr Lecter is about to savor a fig, holds it before his lips, his nostrils flared to its aroma, deciding whether to take all the fig in one glorious bite or just half, when the computer game beside him beeps. It beeps again. Without turning his head, the doctor palms the fig and looks down at the child beside him. The scents of truffle, foie gras and cognac climb from the open box. The small boy sniffs the air. His narrow eyes, shiny as those of a rodent, slide sideways to Dr Lecter’s lunch. He speaks with the piercing voice of a competitive sibling: “Hey, Mister. Hey, Mister.”

He’s not going to stop.

“What is it?”

“Is that one of those special meals?”

“It is not.”

“What’ve you got in there then?”

The child turned his face up to Dr Lecter in a full wheedle. “Gimme a bite?”

From Hannibal  

>>  I find it extremely adorable that Hannibal waited with the patience of a python for the right time to eat his own lunch box on a plane, only to have his meal interrupted by a curious little boy sitting next to him, and tragically he didn’t get to eat anything in the end //hungry cannibal noises …Now imagine Post-s3 Murder Husbands, we have Will sitting next to a very helpless Hannibal, witnessing all of it and failing to keep a straight face …
