After the events in Hannibal (book). Lecter is free and his obsession with Will Graham, now a bitter alcoholic and boat repairer, continues.
The short story I’ve been working on since before Christmas is coming out the day before the end of the he-ate-us! It’s a massive project that I’m incredibly proud of, and though not finished, I know it’s leave you hungry for more!
Set a few years the events of Hannibal, the novel, Hannibal Lecter pays a visit to the only man able to capture him, Will Graham.
There’s this odd duality about school in which we can’t completely ignore what it is, but we also can’t base our lives around it.
School IS important and what it will teach you, you will need. Maybe not explicitly, but problem solving skills, rationalization, and analysis will always be important, which is really what school is trying to teach. It’s not about you knowing the formula for glucose, but to be given the information and find an answer.
So yes, don’t let grades and school define you. They are not a measure of your intelligence. But be aware of the world you live in and realize that there ARE important lessons you will learn in schools.
Abigail encounters the one thing anyone her age doesn’t want to.

I don’t know if I used the right wording on my Will sex meta, but I feel people are misinterpreting it. I don’t mean submissive as weak or powerless, I don’t mean submissive at all. I guess the right word is shy. He’s very shy about his sex in most fics, when that is out of character…
I wish there were more fics where Will’s sexuality is really shown. He’s not some shy puppy who would just submit. He’s very sexual (in RD) and he tries to be smooth and sexy with Alana. He’s not nearly as smooth as Hannibal, but he’s s a dorky flirt, and he tries. I know in…
I think you’re all making the assumption sexual submission makes you weak.
This is not the case at all.
Being a good submissive requires resilience, drive, patience and trust. In amounts that I think most underestimate.
It is also indicative of a need for someone else to impose control on your life. This is not because you don’t KNOW what you’re doing. But because you require it. You can be, sexually, the most experienced person in the world and still want to be the submissive.
There may be scenarios where Will Graham may seek out control in his personal life as his professional life consumes him more. This behaviour is shown when he does kiss Alana. Hannibal calls is a “clutch for balance.”
A good dominant wouldn’t crush his playfulness, but embrace it. And they can, easily.
Also, submission isn’t imposed on these people. They seek it out. Crave it. Just as much as the sadist craves people to practice their sadism on.
I’m not saying he’s always the sub. But I am saying that people don’t seem to understand truly what either of these terms mean. People may characterise a sub wrong then write Will in accordance. But that doesn’t mean his personality isn’t submissive.
I’m not saying he’s weak in his submission, I’m saying that in fics he’s mostly portrayed as inexperienced or shy when it comes to sex. He’s awkward about it, he blushes, it’s not the submission of a planned bondage scene, it’s more of, I use the example of anime again, a non consensual submission where it’s a very alpha/beta relationship, and I would say Will is far more comfortable with sex than Hannibal is, as a part of normal life at least. I know why certain fic writers portray him this way, he has a fever, he’s sick and whatever, but it’s not about submission during the act, is the moments leading up to it. Will is suave with Alana, he knows how to approach and talk to a lady…
I wish there were more fics where Will’s sexuality is really shown. He’s not some shy puppy who would just submit. He’s very sexual (in RD) and he tries to be smooth and sexy with Alana. He’s not nearly as smooth as Hannibal, but he’s s a dorky flirt, and he tries. I know in the show he has this aura about him where he’s completely submissive, which I enjoy, specially due to the encephalitis, because that makes him even more vulnerable. But healthy, or lucid, Will is sexual and playful and flirty and dorky, and I really need a fic of him being like that with Hannibal, because that’s who he really is. He’d kiss Hannibal and tell him he wont kiss him again unless he wanted it, he’d call him hotlips, tell him silly stories about his genitals that would lead to ‘checking’ them and making sure they were okay.
I’m working on something. It’s a one shot, not part of The Ripper and The Fisherman. I haven’t much to do until Feb, 28th so I REALLY REALLY hope to strike some inspiration by then. Love you all!
Also the thing has Red Dragon spoilers, so read it with caution… Once I post it on AO3
