Hannibal was still healing, and still apparently "grounded", which amused him more than anything. Even the annoyance of not being allowed in his own kitchen didn't entirely stop the amusement, although he was making every effort to heal more quickly because of it.

He could really only eat so many leftovers.

Today, he was intermittently reading and walking about the house, doing light stretches to avoid stiffening up.

And trying to figure out how he was supposed to teach a cooking class without going into the kitchen.


[OOC: Open post! Discussion of Hannibal's past NFB!]

Lucille had wanted to speak to Hannibal ever since the wedding, but had waited to give him time to rest. She also wanted to be sure what she wanted to ask, but even if she was now here, knocking at the door, she wasn't entirely sure about that.

"Dr Lecter." Lucille smiled as she entered the house. "I hope you have had plenty of rest since..."

"Oh?" Lucille said, a little surprised. "Why is that?"

She was nervous. Tea would help, as it had become a pleasant habit when she visited, but she didn't want to ask for anything inconvenient.

That made Lucille relieved, even if it was more the comfort than the tea itself. But she had better get this over with. Drawing a deep breath, she asked: "That man, he said things about you."

Lucille took a seat, Tensely leaning forward a little. "I... Those accusations could by some be considered serious."

Date: 2016-08-28 08:24 pm (UTC)
crimson_sister: (serious)
From: [personal profile] crimson_sister
"No," she said. "No, they don't. But why did he accuse you of them?"

Lucille suspected they were true, or she wouldn't so easily had admitted she wasn't worried.

"Such actions doesn't make us monsters does it?" Lucille said, expecting Hannibal would agree. "Except in the eyes of others.

Hadn't he taught her that it wasn't necessary to follow convention?

Lucille looked at Hannibal. So he had guessed. It surprised her, and at the same time not, but most of all she felt... safe.

"It was the best choice I could make. But there was a price to pay. Not for my father, but for my mother."

He had more or less admitted to that what the man attacking him was true, so she no longer had anything to hide.

Strange and yet a relief to finally admit to her actions.

"My father I poisoned slowly over the course of a year. I found a book in our library on poisonous plants and slipped it in his tea. Everyone thought he had fallen ill, and when I offered to act as his nurse it was easier to feed him the correct dose. No one ever suspected anything. I only told my brother."

"A plant that grows on the moors. It makes a bitter tea, but my father liked his tea sweet, so sugar hid the taste," Lucille said. "Eventually, when he could no longer eat much I added it to his porridge."

She hesitated for a moment, considering how to put this. She looked down. "My mother thought my brother and I were too close. I couldn't let her separate us." Raising her gaze again, she looked at Hannibal. "I killed her with a meat cleaver in her bath."

Date: 2016-09-01 06:23 am (UTC)
crimson_sister: (sad)
From: [personal profile] crimson_sister
Lucille gave a small nod. "My brother and I were the only ones in the house. They didn't believe us when we said we were innocent."

They would have needed Hannibal's help there.

"We... said said we hadn't heard anything. That we had been in the nursery in the attic all the time." The accusations were never explicit by the police, but I was sent to the asylum and my brother to a boarding school."

Now he knew the whole story, more or less.

Lucille looked almost surprised before she understood what he meant. "Perhaps it is to our advantage that children are often considered to be innocent."

She was curious about another thing. "What would you have done, had you been me?" 'Being me' meant not eating her mother, because even if Lucille had no objections to that in theory, it was not quite to her taste.

"Perhaps I should have pushed her down the stairs. She did walk with a cane," Lucille said. "I admit it wasn't carefully planned."

But cutting through her mother's head with a meat cleaver had been very satisfying.

Of course. Dr Lecter was clever enough to figure that out. Lucille looked uncomfortable. Considering that the man in front of him had confessed to killing and eating people perhaps she shouldn't have to feel this, but she knew the judgement relationships such as the one between her and her brother faced.

"She didn't approve of the closeness between my brother and I. She wanted to keep us apart."

Lucille looked a little uncomfortable. For the first time during this conversation she felt she was being questioned. She looked down at her hands. "She called us monsters. I... yes, I was furious. It was a monstrous thing, wasn't it?"

Using that word was no accusation towards herself though.

Date: 2016-09-08 11:10 am (UTC)
crimson_sister: (ghostly)

"No," Lucille said. "No. But does a monster ever consider themselves to be one?"

He got a small smile in return. "No, I did not."

What would she had done had Hannibal rejected her because of her incestuous relationship? Not killed him obviously, but what would it had meant to have confessed so much before that?

"I write letters," she said. "In code, but I still can't tell him much or I fear he would think me truly mad."

There were also other things, such as her infidelities that he was better not knowing about.

"I've heard about that," Lucille said. "If his school permits it and if it is possible for him to travel to this place, I would very much like him to. It's been almost two years since I last saw him."

Date: 2016-09-09 03:29 pm (UTC)
crimson_sister: (looking away)
From: [personal profile] crimson_sister
"I do. He was always there, always a part of my life. It is strange to now have all these things happening and not be able to share them with him."

She fell silent for a moment, then added: "He was my only friend until I came here."

"Do you know how to invite someone?" she asked. "I can hardly ask him to find a portal."

"Oh, I will do that. When is this weekend?" Lucille looked excited now. There was a chance that she would see Thomas again soon!

That statement would have sounded insane anywhere else. But this was Fandom, and Lucille gave a small nod. "I will do so."
