    Summary

    It was easier for Will to hide his magic. No muggle understood his ‘gift’ of empathy. Wizarding kind thought him even more of a freak. No person, magical or otherwise, liked their secrets exposed. While Will was self-taught in magic, it was easier to deal with people without magic, than with it.
    Hannibal Lecter had an important and rare creature inheritance that gifted him with understanding magic in a way that few could understand. Secret hidden from all, even Will, he slipped under the cover of the muggles, an elusive sort of prey, and killed without magic.
    Only, when Hannibal asks Will of his magic, that Will understands who Hannibal is: Chesapeake Ripper.
    So, they both leave. Will leaves Jack behind but brings his dogs, and Hannibal is looking forward to hunting in Italy again. On their layover in England, Hannibal confesses that he needs to go hunting. That is where they found Harry Potter, curled under the cupboard, malnourished and bleeding.
    The natural thing to do is take the boy in and raise him as their own.
    This is the story of how Harry grows with a father who is a Ravenstag, serial killer, a dad with too many dogs and an empathy disorder, cannibalism and the value that family has.

    Summary

    To say that Will was catapulted into fatherhood would be putting it mildly.

    He had just gotten used to the daily routine that comes with working as a professor at Quantico when he received a message from Joanna. He didn’t have many relationships, connections being a little hard to maintain when your brain is looking inside killers’ minds. That someone from his past relationship had decided to call him out of the blue meant something important was afoot.

    He hates being right.

    What if Will has a daughter in S1 and no one knew?

    Summary

    Many people say that Will Graham has an empathy disorder, brought about by the abundance of mirror neurons of childhood never burned away.

    What very few say, as very few know, is that those mirror neurons stayed in defense of a far darker thing, lurking about in the shadows of his skull. They helped him connect to others around him, a barrier to the evil inside, a balance with which to find himself.

    And then Harry Potter went to die, and the horocrux was destroyed.

    After that, the mirror neurons he'd never known he'd had were more of a pain than they were worth, honestly.

    Summary

    “When the moment comes, can you do what needs to be done?”
    Two men had asked Will that question and he had given them both the same answer. Yet here he stands, on the doorstep of the one with the blood of the other staining his clothes and skin. Maybe it had been instinct, maybe insanity. Or maybe this is the person he’s been all along and he had just been too afraid to embrace his reality, his becoming.

    Summary

    Summary

    Will Graham is hunting a monster.

    When fate and circumstance bring him into the path of Doctor Hannibal Lecter, Will descends beneath the surface of high society in search of the murderer he seeks. But the deeper their relationship gets, the muddier the waters grow—the desire for understanding is a desperate hunger that lives inside them both.

    For hidden inside Will is the shadow of… something. It sees Hannibal’s secrets, hemorrhages the true intent of the Chesapeake Ripper’s crimes via an anonymous website: the only one who has ever seen, ever understood. It's an insight that presents itself alongside Will’s genderfluid nature, shifting from one day to the next.

    With his whole world on one side and a brand new life on the other, Will balances on a thread as thin and translucent as fishing line, a dazzling lure. A mutual potential lives between them that might prove too irresistible for Hannibal to ignore—

    —and one sharp slice may be enough to cut bait.

    Summary

    Will Graham was no stranger to various mental ailments, but one day he came home with a headache that he just couldn’t shake off.

Instead of a pliant patient ripe for manipulation, the good doctor was suddenly faced with an anatomical anomaly of fantastical proportions.

    Will Graham just sprouted wings, and they’re magnificent to behold.

    Summary

    Will stared at Hannibal with wide eyes.

    For quite possibly the first time in his life he understood just what Morticia meant when she told Will over his mother's casket you'll know when you see them.

    Summary

    AU in which Will receives a secret admirer with a penchant for writing him poetry and slaughtering the innocent in artistic fashions. No one ever told him that courtship was so bloody or appealing -rather, so bloody appealing? He's a part-time bartender that can't catch a break, but at least he has one loyal customer who doesn't seem to mind bouncing from restaurant to bar to restaurant in order to have his favorite drink made by his favorite person.

    There couldn't be a correlation though; Dr. Lecter is an upstanding psychiatrist that just likes his drinks served a certain way, and the Chesapeake Ripper keeps sending love letters in the hopes of one day eating him. One is, quite frankly, flattering, the other...

    Will isn't stupid enough to tell anyone that it's also equally flattering, albeit horrifying at the same time. It's up for interpretation.

    Right?

    Summary

    He was in love from the moment he stepped foot into Hobbs’ kitchen and saw the Omega standing there, chest heaving, pulse racing, spattered in the blood of an inferior Alpha. He had vowed to himself then and there that he would have Will, whatever the cost to the profiler’s sanity and to the lives of others. 

    An Omegaverse story in which male Omegas are considered rare and precious according to society's standards. Hannibal decides he wants Will and is ready to start a family with him, regardless of whatever Will wants. 

    Starts in Oeuf but doesn't diverge too drastically from canon until Savoureux.
