    Summary

    Hannibal planned to keep Will in the dark about his encephalitis so he could watch that brilliant mind burn itself up and become something new. In a world without daemons, he might have got away with it.

    An AU incorporating elements of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, beginning partway through the first season of Hannibal. Due to the existence of daemons, the course of the Chesapeake Ripper case is drastically altered — and so too is the relationship between Hannibal and Will.

    Staggeringly fantastic, and uses the concept of daemons to explore Will and Hannibal in ways that literally wouldn't be possible otherwise.

    Summary

    Hux was waving the thought like an obscene placard, and when Kylo latched onto it he made a low sound, half surprise and half pleasure, grip tightening around Kylo's wrist.It was crude, but appealing nonetheless, and it rose up on a seething mass of images and emotions that Hux hadn't a hope of concealing now. Kylo took a deep breath, centring himself, resisting the temptation to just take and take.


    Hux thinks he understands what Kylo Ren wants from him. So does Kylo Ren.

    Super well-edited, made with care and a clever eye for lyric matching and details. Very recommended.

    Summary

    So it was fine. Even if Crowley couldn’t love him, he clearly liked him well enough, and that was almost the same thing.

    It no doubt would have continued to be fine, or at least fine-adjacent, were it not for a narrowly averted apocalypse and several bottles of a really quite nice Riesling Aziraphale had found in the back room of his newly restored bookshop.

    An adorable answer to "Why would Aziraphale ever believe his feelings for Crowley were unrequited if he's able to sense love?"

    Well, for the same reason Anathema couldn't sense Adam's aura.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Really, really fantastic use of the de-aging trope to explore how a less guarded Lex might react to Clark (and vice versa). Excellent, evocative language, and blindingly hot. So recommended.
