Title: that boy is a monster
Author: Randstad
Characters: Hannibal/Beverly, implied Hannibal/Will
Length: 3k
Summary: Beverly doesn't see the harm in a night in with Dr. Lecter. (To Will's chagrin, neither does Dr. Lecter.)

You know how sometimes you come across a story that is so perfectly original and understated and awesome that you can't even hold on to your envy? That is this story. Although (shadow of Clarice Starling aside) Bev and Hannibal are my two favorite characters on the show, it never would've occurred to me to throw them together at all, much less in this way. A deft fic that manages to be hilarious without losing realism or the undercurrent of horror.

Title: A Threat Disguised as a Suggestion
Author: mirandu
Characters: Clarice Starling, Hannibal Lecter
Length: 2k
Summary: Playing with/mixing canons between the Hannibal TV series and the novels/movies. One interpretation of how the first meeting between Dr. Lecter and the FBI trainee Clarice Starling might go, with the added history of Miriam Lass between them. (Some brief mentions of violence -- and, uh, cannibalism obviously -- but nothing too graphic in here.)

Absolutely brilliant recreation of Lecter and Starling's first meeting tailored for the NBC universe. I've stumbled across some show!verse stories that don't do justice to Starling's character, but here she's the perfect balance of novice and determinator. The Lecter POV also blends art and brutality in just the right measures without veering into overly lurid writing.
