If I don’t get any Will Graham for the first three episodes of season 3, I better see Hannibal pining for him as much as I will be.

ep 1: hannibal crying into his pretentious ass 10000 dollar wine
ep 2:…

You know what I want? Hannibal, who is always so put together, so hidden behind his walls, to have a nightmare (similar to the ones will has) that completely tears him apart. To show that he is still human, despite the dragon he has become. And this makes him want the comfort of will more than ANYTHING. PLEASE. I WANT HANNIBAL TO PINE HARDCORE.

I can get behind this. I am like the first person in line, after you, behind this. Thrashing, heavy breathing. Canonically, Hannibal has nightmares of things he’d like to avoid. 

SO LET’S GO BRYAN, HOP TO.

but what hatches follows its own nature and is beyond me.”

And Will gives him his full on, adorable, “innocent” eyed stare lol Will.

You fucking manipulative tart.

Well that was the first time Will let himself embrace the darkness wholly as himself, without using Matthew as surrogate. It was ALL Will, manipulative or not so, like all first timers, he was scared and nervous and vulnerable.

How Hannibal resisted kissing him and utterly RUINING him right there and then is a mystery to me.

Did he hold back because others were there and were coming?

Was it because he has no sexual desire for Will? (*hears all Fannibals, the cast and crew and writers laughing in the distance*)

Was it because he didn’t want to scare Will and respected that he was straight? (you have no idea how bad it hurt to write that line)

*hums Wicked Game*

Or perhaps it was just Network execs and their red pens. ;D 

I don’t know that Will was scared and nervous and vulnerable, wholly. I think he was partially, but as ever Will is just a myriad of contrast, he might have had some vulnerable nervous in him, but he was certainly using it to go straight for the target, doing some really good reeling right here. I mean, we can practically see Hannibal being dragged in. The look away, what is happening, Am I changing, Hannibal?  Is to a degree hard, cold, manipulation. 

*hisses at the execs* Well no it was Bryan maintaining that it is just a pure, non-sexual love between them. *broken, ugly sobbing*

I think it mostly was Will feeling all those things. It had been a turning point, he was either going to hook Hannibal or fail miserably. He had denied that dark part of him so long that finally, FINALLY he could let it go and he walked the razor’s edge. He WANTED to kill that guy, it would have felt even better than killing GJH, it would have been, i believe, a small way to kill Hannibal, an effigy of him so to speak.

So he was getting pulled in a lot of different directions:

  1. Kill kill kill, he deserves it, it will be  a service, it will FEEL GOOD.
  2. No no no, that is not me, I am Will Graham, I am not Hannibal’s puppet, this is not my design. I fight the monsters, I do not become them
  3. Have to maintain, have to reel Lecter in. He is so close to taking the bait, play the line, make it dance, make it irresistible.

Hannibal BITES. He takes the decision away from Will and Will is left reeling, like playing tug of war and someone lets go of the rope, you need to find your footing. Most of all he had to keep playing that line to make sure Hannibal didn’t know he was hooked.

Yes there was blatant manipulation there, the whole times. But it is not negated by, nor does it negate, the fact that Will most likely was well and truly scared and overwhelmed and vulnerable. Hell, they only enhance each other. If Hannibal is to be caught by whimsy, what is more whimsical than a damsel in distress?

Ok i will shut up now.

I take your points, I just don’t love the damsel in distress notion. He is scared, overwhelmed and vulnerable, as he has every right to be, but he takes that part and locks it away. The Damsel in Distress notion implies that Will is sitting still and waiting for Hannibal to rescue him, but that’s not what Will is doing and that’s certainly not what Hannibal is looking for. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t so much read distress in his gaze, it’s purposeful honest dishonesty, he is schooling his features, not allowing his emotions to dance through him. He’s offering Hannibal just a glimpse of what he wants to see and making him walk the extra mile over, which I think was the intent of this whole exercise. I think Will might have wanted to kill the guy, but I don’t think he intended to. A glimpse of what it would be like to see Will kill and then away.

I certainly can’t 100% this, but I think Will suspected Hannibal would stop him, certainly, I did. Hannibal would want more ceremony to it than a bloody horse and an empty barn, he would want more of his hand involved, not for Will to just kill, but for him to proctor Will’s killing. He would want to be enmeshed in it. Will killing without Hannibal’s direct involvement, would actually be detrimental to the co-dependency Hannibal is trying to forge. 

Either way Hannibal doesn’t want a damsel to save, he wants a half for his half to ride into battle with.

ep 1: hannibal crying into his pretentious ass 10000 dollar wine
ep 2: hannibal crying in the opera bc all the singers have will’s beardy face, even the women
ep 3: hannibal crying in the art museum bc he sees a no doggies allowed sign

The second episode is all about Will, and he’s defo in the third, BUT I SECOND THIS SENTIMENT, EVERY TIME I SEE HANNIBAL HE BETTER BE BITCH FACING ABOUT THE PAIN OF SEPARATION.

Hannibal sitting there, staring at his wine glass, images of Will dancing in his head and he sighs, setting the glass down. Will’s Theme is playing, but maybe only in hannibal’s head ot he doesn;t realize it. He goes to the closet and pulls out Will’s coat and the bloody shirt with it, traces his fingers down the buttons.

He sighs and a tear falls.

He goes back to his tablet and opens it up to Tattle Crime. It’s a night for nostalgia, might as well go full bore. He sees the headline

"WILL GRAHAM VOWS TO CATCH HANNIBAL THE CANNIBAL"

His eyes widen in surprise, Will is alive. And then he smiles, a real smile. Then he smirks.

"I look forward to having you for dinner again, Will."

I would like him in unyielding agony for at least three episodes before he finds life again.

I want everything he does to fall to ash on his lips. I want him to pine and I want to feel it. 

No easy outs for you Doctor. I want him through the grinder.

j0uii replied to your post: What’s going on? I saw two other peopl…

If Achilles “was a dick”, then Patroclus was stupid in his horrible hubris of going after basically Troy’s full army while in Achiles’ armor. Analogy still works, though “a dick” is a somewhat harsh characterization.

lol, I knew someone would take exception to this.

It’s a joke, first of all, not a serious matter of analysis. And yeah, all those classical heroes were up to their nostrils in hubris. That was kind of their thing. Hector, much as I love him, was full of it too when he allowed himself to face Achilles in single combat.

Or are you arguing that Will is stupid and/or has hubris in going after Hannibal? Because that’s one place where the comparison falls apart: the first half of of S2 was about how Will learned that it was stupid and useless to send anyone else after Hannibal. They all failed and got killed, emphasizing that the only weapon he had to work with—and should be working with, morally speaking—was himself. When other people came back into the equation is when Will’s efforts, remember, fell apart: Will was 100% successful in his endeavor with Hannibal. It was the army—the FBI—who dropped the ball. 

As I said, it’s not an allegory.

Or is the problem with calling Hannibal a dick? Because I love him, and bless his little cannibal heart, but he is a total dick.

Seriously, does anyone actually think that Will had any other option than trying to take Hannibal down like he did? Even if he decided to leave well enough alone, or just stalk Hannibal and wait for him to do something illegal, do we really think Hannibal would have left well enough alone? Or not known?  That he just would have gone on his merry cannibal way, content to allow Will to live normally without any interference and attempts to realize their “friendship” and Will’s “potential”? That more people wouldn’t get hurt and killed in that time? 

I don’t think so.
