Headcanon that Will writes weekly letters to Hannibal but doesn’t send them because he doesn’t know where he is, so he just keeps them in his drawer underneath his socks.
Do you have any evidence of this?
I will remember your kind offer, were you and your Ducati to ever pass by my place of residence.
"La véritable liberté consiste à ne craindre ni les hommes ni les dieux."
I would recommend reading Le Marquis de Sade’s bibliography -his libertine take on religion, intercourse and ethics is still quite amusing nowadays. To go further, here is a list of the contents of my bookshelf in Baltimore.
You do not have to worry about the FBI finding me; I am doing my best to avoid them and, even if my efforts happened to be fruitless, I am certain I would find a way to pass the time either way. I certainly have enough pen friends for that…
Doctor Hannibal Lecter, M.D.
I am anxious to see what you will do. Please do let me know; a pranking-the-FBI evening is always a pleasant one.
Good evening my dear,
I am charmed to learn that you also enjoy riding stallions of steel. May I ask what is your mount of choice in such matters? My own motor-driven mare is indeed both a comfortable and elegant ride; I take great pride in it, all the more so that my esteemed Aunt was the one who introduced me to Triumph rides.
A tasteless tongue and crude manners usually whet my artistic appetite for a more appropriate use of said tongue and body language: I find scrambled brains more enjoyable with brown butter than in the bone case they originate from. Here is one way to proceed, were you to ever walk in my footsteps:
Cervello alla fiorentina (serves 4)
I would especially recommend the prosciutto of Serano and French pistou soup. To my delight, I have also been able to provide myself with sweet Danish hydromel from Bork. How I had missed European delicacies!
You may learn to know me now, if you will.
I have even taken into account that my own office could do so. Have you heard the saying “God works in mysterious ways”? Or read Voltaire’s Dictionnaire Philosophique, which speculates about the reasons God acts as it acts? I warmly recommend that you do; ideally, while witnessing one of God’s grand gestures of massive destruction and unfathomable wrath.
