She’s nervous. That’s new. She never gets nervous, at least not about things like this. The behavioral profiler in her wants to examine this feeling, run her fingers over it like running one’s tongue over a toothache. No time for that now. The boy in the bed has her full attention at the moment, frail-looking in his hospital nightgown. He shouldn’t seem so frightening.
“Will, I’m Special Agent Abigail Hobbs,” she introduces herself. “And this is Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Do you remember us?”
“I remember you.” Graham shifts, lifting his gaze higher to meet hers full-on. She gets the impression he doesn’t do this often. Abigail’s mother always warned her the most important moments in her life would come wrapped up in simple ones such as these, their potency drawn from the smallest of actions, and she believes it now, pinned in place by a teenager’s eyes like needles through a butterfly’s wings.
“You’re the woman who killed my dad.”
Tongue stuck between his lips, his mind goes quiet for a few precious moments as he concentrates on the polish. He sighs with happiness when he’s done, admiring his toes, wishing he could wear the color on his nails.
Graeme Webster, 20, is clawing at survival the best way he can. He works two jobs, but can't make rent. He has an anxiety disorder, but can't afford his meds. He's trying his best, but he needs help.
“You might be leaning on urban geekster a bit too hard.”
“Okay, I’m probably going to regret asking, but ‘geekster?’”
Alan Garry, 30, is an app programming millionaire with a middle class background. He may be a workaholic, but he's carved out time for the Seattle kink scene since being introduced to it in college. He sits somewhere on the asexual spectrum, and the fact that he can't figure out precisely where bothers him more than he'd care to admit.
“It’s going to be okay, Graeme. Where do you hurt the most?”
An unfortunate chance encounter brings them together, but they realize quite quickly that neither of them are willing to part again.

It started with a prompt I found on Pintrest and just got way out of control! For the most part, this series should stay around a T rating. However, if I ever get comfortable writing smut, some of the stories might go up. But, those parts will be completely optional and after the official end of the main story!
Will was 9 years old, when he became a monster. For a while, that was okay, there were other monsters around to teach and to guide. But they are solitary creatures, violent and possessive, and Will has been alone for decades, waiting for something, someone.
If you walk the streets of downtown Baltimore, you’ll pass a run-down old building, boarded up and crumbling. If you tilt your head and look past the veil, beyond the mortal world, you’ll see the sign. “Maneater.” This is where the Ripper holds court.
