Anonymous said: Hello Straggle, I'm sorry to bother you but do you have any more recs for Hannibal/Clarice?
Hi there, anon! It’s no bother. It’s been AGES, though, since I’ve read anything with that couple so I apologize in advance for the delay! Ok, lets see…
All of these fics are gonna come from Loving Lecter, because it’s the best site for Hannibal and Clarice fics period. Well, there might be some from FF.Net.
- Best of Three, by Zircon. Playful, meta-ish, fucking great.
- Evolution, by Zircon. Basically… All the Zircon. All of them.
- Fool’s Goat, by Lectergrrl. I love me some Post-SOTL fics.
- Four Months, by apckrfan.
- Hannibal - Reprise, by Zircon. Seriously. ALL the Zircon.
- Heat of the Midnight Sun, by Horserider91271.
- In Pursuit, by DianaLecter.
- It Was a Dark and Stormy Night, by DianaLecter.
- La Vita Nuova, by Mel.
- Needlework, by DianaLecter.
- My Fair Agent, by DianaLecter. She’s a must to, FYI.
- Obsession, by DianaLecter. See?
- Perspective, by Zircon. God, I love this one.
- Taking Flight, by China Mail. So, so worth it.
Sadly I don’t have it in me to properly scour FF.Net, where I know are more fics to rec. If and when you run out ask me again, anon!
I have a rec list (including fanfiction.net links - which is absolutely a slog you’re right) if anyone is interested. It’s on my blog.
5 Star Review from Amazon
if you are capable of moving beyond the detective-thriller model of SOTL and into more deep and challenging waters. An approriate subtitle of this book would be “The Healing of Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling.” As was said, this is not some linear detective thriller nor is it a Harlequin Romance, both of which the critics of this book should really be spending their time with it seems, along with Paul Krendler on the other side of the flowers. Hannibal is over their head.
I have worked extensively with the severely mentally ill, particularly schizophrenics and psychotics, as well as people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. They develop coping mechanisms that we find extreme or odd, because their past experience has such a hold on them, and intrudes into their lives so radically. How would you cope if you as a child saw a sibling torn from your hands and eaten…or your father was murdered?
The genius of this book is that Lecter and Starling not only complete each other, they heal each other. She, a resolute warrior who once committed will never leave or be taken without a fight to the death..she will never be a victim. He, the father figure who seeks her liberty and healing while at the same time does not seek her to be dependent upon him..in fact he loves her for what he sees as a fierce independence that has been shackled by the trauma of her father’s death and her remaining within the bounds of political institutions that now seek to harm her. After having read Hannibal Rising, I now see that his real love for her is because unlike Lady Murasaki, who ended up walking away from him and his pathology, Starling was not only fearless in the face of it but was willing to save his life despite his nature. Their personalities and trauma history are perfectly matched. In the end they make a great couple, healed, whole, and happy.

Summary: Clarice and Dr. Lecter cross paths again, and the Doctor is anxious to continue their game of cat and mouse.
Honestly, any fic by Zircon is worth the read. This one is no exception.
Zircon’s Clannibal fics were all updated and re-edited on LiveJournal/Dreamwidth so it’s fun to re-read them there too.
Search under thisiszircon.dreamwidth.org or thisiszircon.livejournal.com
Plus there’s Remains of the Day and Buffy fanfiction there too. It’s all good.

" …dammit, you’re right.”
Fashionnibal Lecter strikes again.
Hate in the Clarice Starling tag got me like ！(◎_◎;)
What I love about Clarice Starling:
She’ll live forever in the pages of those books, waiting for me to crack open those covers or turn on my Kindle.
She’ll forever be a young woman— optimistic and continually driven to equal the balance.
She’ll always be a weary, embittered warrior, grimly holding fast to the idea of justice in the face of a bureaucracy trying to grind her down.
No matter the time, the entertainment industry, or the interpretation, she’s waiting in those incorruptible pages, and I’ll look forward to getting to know her all over again.
Hannibal: I’m going to make you my sister
Clarice: or we could fuck
Hannibal:…..your plan is better
