DUDE: HANNIBAL FICBUNNY!
Will wakes up in a strange bed that he vaguely remembers.
He’s in a motel-room.
There’s a knock at the door.
He opens it, and Hannibal is standing there.
‘Good morning, Will.’ He says. ‘May I come in?’
It’s over a year ago.
He’s back in Duluth, Minnesota, and they’re hunting for the Minnesota Shrike.
Somehow, he has travelled back in time, right back to the beginning, only this time he knows what Hannibal is from the start, and gets to play him. Abigail is alive, Bev is alive, Abel Gideon is alive, Chilton is still whole.They’re all alive, and he still has a chance to save them.
You had me at “Bev is alive,” lol.
I’ll tell you one thing: Will sure as *fuck* doesn’t eat that “protein scramble” Hannibal brings.
AND ANOTHER THING:
He sure as *fuck* doesn’t give Hannibal a key to his house AND he gets an MRI for encephalitis every fucking week, co-pay be damned.
*but he might HAVE to do some of those things in order to lull ‘this’ Hannibal into a false sense of security ?? like this time round Hannibal would sniff him and Will would realise ‘holy shit this was it, this was when he first sensed the encephalitis!’*
ARGH THIS IDEA IS FUCKING TEARING ME APART
I think shit would still go down the same with the Minnesota Shrike; Abigail being an orphan is Hannibal’s whole impetus for the “murder family” (and omg what if Will answered his phone this time and showed up for “breakfast for dinner”). But I can maybe see him keeping Abigail from killing Nick Boyle.
WAIT WAIT WAIT
HOLY MOLY WHAT ABOUT TOBIAS BUDGE! *Franklyn* lives!
DUDE, DUDE, I JUST THOUGHT
HALFWAY THROUGH, SOMETHING THAT’S SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN DOESN’T HAPPEN/OR HAPPENS DIFFERENTLY, BUT WILL DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO CHANGE IT, SO HE HAS TO FIGURE OUT WHY.
HE REALISES IT’S BECAUSE…
PLOT TWIST 2:
AT SOME POINT,
HANNIBAL TRAVELLED BACK IN TIME TOO
*also imagine Will having to allow himself to contract encephalitis because so much depends on what Hannibal did when he was ‘using’ those symptoms and Will knows he’ll be able to smell if he’s faking it, imagine Will FAKING SEIZURES to keep Hannibal off-guard, imagine Will FAKING BEING HALF-ASLEEP as Hannibal puts the ear down his throat dude DUDE*
*flails* Hannibal going back in time also is the best! Arrgh, what detail gives him away to Will though…
Would this happen before or after Miriam Lass is found to be alive? If after, I don’t see time travel!Will fucking around with a cat and cat game, he’d call in an anonymous tip hoping to save her before she lost her arm. =(
God now I want to go back and watch Season 1i for all the yummy AU possibilities.
*ugh, same, same*
I’m thinking Hannibal says something from season 2, like, some little tell-tale phrase that we know he’s only said in s2, or he makes an ‘idle’ comment about what could possibly happen in the near-futureand Will recognises a description of what he knows is going to happen and it like sends a shiver down his spine as he realises.
But here’s the kicker tho, ok:
Will knows Hannibal has time-travelled,
but Hannibal doesn’t know Will has time-travelled.
So now Will would be on-the-clock trying to catch Hannibal out before giving himself away as a fellow ‘traveller. >_<
*plus, omg, implications, how much MORE damage would Hannibal have been able to do if he had this foreknowledge??* O_O
If this happens after Miriam is found, it could be that the shed-in-the-middle-of-nowhere (where she was kept) could be the ‘caught-red-handed’ place that Will manages to lead Jack, et al (Or does he? Does Hannibal still ‘win’?)
OMG… If Will called in an anoymous tip… Hannibal would know someone is onto him : it’d be just like Will was at the end of s1, knowing someone close to him has betrayed him but not quite being able to see who. >_<
*I’m actually terrified by the all the possibilities just this one lil’ idea opens up*
