Raven had been just a tiny bit miffed that neither Jono or Karla had called for her to tend to Hannibal when they'd brought him to Glacia, but she also knew that not everyone liked to be fussed over in the manner she usually did. So she'd kept her distance for a time to give him some space. He wasn't in any life-threatening danger after all.

After a couple of days she had to see for herself how Hannibal was doing. She made her way to the rooms Karla had given him and knocked lightly on the door. "Dr. Lecter?" she said. "It is Raven. Would you like some company?"


[For the one upon whose door Raven is gently tapping.]

Hannibal looked up from the book he'd been going through. He did believe in staying busy, and Karla had a wonderful library.

"Come in," he called out, putting on a smile that was fairly normal.

Hannibal put a marker in the book and set it aside. "Not at all. I know you must have been worried. Please." He waved for her to sit.

Hannibal reached for her hands, still smiling, though it was more than a little sad. "When things stop affecting us, we are dead," he answered. "I wish things had turned out differently, but I will survive."

Hannibal sighed, taking a moment to draw in that comfort. "I am thinking about it," he answered. "But I don't know that I wish to speak of it yet. I do welcome your company, though. Tell me what you've been up to lately."

"An unfortunate state of affairs that seems to be true across worlds," Hannibal noted. "The children are lucky to have you looking out for them." She was undoubtedly better than any of the Soviet overseers the Lithuanian orphanages had had.

"If it's anything like the ones in my world, some of the children may be too frightened to speak out," Hannibal noted. "And some may be no better than the adults in charge," he added with a grimace. "I would be pleased to accompany you."

Because yes, there was a good chance of exceptional rudeness.

From: [personal profile] sharp_as_knives
Hannibal smiled grimly. "Should that happen," and honestly, it was more likely than not, "the important part is remembering to direct your anger at the correct parties, and to let go of it after." Abusing children was the height of rudeness, Raven; Hannibal wasn't about to talk you out of it.

You killed the people that caused it, mostly. But Hannibal didn't think she was ready to hear that yet. "You let yourself be angry at them, but don't let it affect the way you view the rest of the world."

He chuckled wryly. "It can take some time. I imagine that's part of the reason Karla dragged me here. I am...working on it."

"Thank you." Hannibal smiled at her and held out an arm for a hug. "I believe that they have been. Perhaps one day we will speak again," depending on who lived. "I have forgiven most of them already."

Hannibal could imagine quite a few reasons, himself. Just so long as Raven didn't talk to Will, though, he should be fine. Or Jack. Or Alana. Or Freddie Lounds. Or...well, there was a reason he wasn't going back to Baltimore, okay?

"Different people have different outlooks. When they clash, there can be violence." For instance, Jack thought murder was bad. Hannibal disagreed.

Hannibal smiled at her. "A gift? You had no need, you know. I leave the timing entirely up to you." And now he was curious.

Hannibal reached out carefully, delighted. He picked up one, examining it and lifting it to smell. "These are wonderful. Thank you." He touched another berry, feeling its texture. "Do you think they would grow on the island?"

"I should hate to put you to further trouble." Hannibal smiled at her. "But I shall definitely attempt to grow these at my house. You can have a taste of home when you visit."

"If they grow well, I should have plenty to experiment with," Hannibal answered. He took one of the small berries and bit into it slowly, closing his eyes to savor the taste. When he'd finished eating it, he smiled at her again. "Thank you very much."

"I will," he promised. "At present, the caring of friends and a few distractions are the best thing for me. And you've just brought me both."
