Hannigraphs Holidays, Week 1 Results

Congratulations to our winning holiday dinners!  The following is our Glorious Announcement:

Will frowns at the table.  He’s fresh from the shower, his wet curls framing his forehead in a careless, intimate disarray.  “You cooked.”

Hannibal laughs warmly. “Did it ever cross your mind that I wouldn’t?”

Will’s eyes dart between the roast goose and suckling pig.  He has no doubt they are exactly what they appear to be.  One of the joys of their relationship is that Hannibal has no need to disguise what, or who, they are eating. “Two roasts? I thought I said I’d provide the meat.  You really overdid it with the tree, the Christmas Eve dinner, the gifts.  The least I could do was give you the night off.”

“I got bored.” Hannibal shrugs. “But what did you prepare, my darling?”

“Nothing like this.” Will apologizes, eyes darting over the larder.  “One of my dad’s friends used to go hunting.  He taught me how to make this venison chili.  Do you remember John?”

“From a few months ago at the orchards?  Yes.  He kept asking if my ‘brother’ and I needed any help.” Hannibal says.

“Well, I suppose we can say he was in season.” Will says.

Hannibal smiles as a silence settles in.  Will approaches his lover. Picturesque as ever, a single tear glistens in the corner of the older man’s eye. No sooner has Will rested a comforting hand on than Hannibal has grasped it, pulling him close. “Never be ashamed of your cooking, love. You brought for the table a dish prepared with care, a meat you yourself hunted and dressed. Especially for a meal such as this, the gift of your past and the care you put in it is far more appropriate than my roasts.”

Will wraps his arms around Hannibal. Relief and pride swirl through him in equal measure, twisting and weaving through a wave of affection. “Thank you.” He mumbles into the embrace, savoring the contact.  Several moments pass before he speaks again “Can we hold off on cuddling until after dinner? I’m starving.”

“Certainly.” Hannibal  hold him tighter for a moment before reluctantly letting him go.  “I can put away the roasts while you fetch the chili.  The scalloped potatoes and yorkshire pudding will be an interesting offset, but what is Christmas is not a blending of traditions?”

Oh.  And Devil’s Food Cake for dessert.

Due to our write-ins requesting torture porn, there will be no torture porn.  As PUNISHMENT.

2015 Hannibal Advent and SITE UPDATES

This year’s Hannibal Advent has begun. Canadagraphs.com will be celebrating by choosing Will and Hannibal’s Christmas meals, outfits, and traditions.  Since some of our best poll results so far have been write-ins (more on that later!), we’re going to start off with a 2-week OPEN NOMINATION PERIOD.  Click HERE to submit your Very Hannigram Holiday Nominations.  This will end December 1st, and the first of the polls will be up that evening.  We’ll run one poll set per week, with the results coming out on the 24th.

The Best Of Hannigram Canon Awards have been proceeding well.  The current round will wrap up on December 8th–People want a chance to vote for sexiest actress, and I live to give you what you want.  We’ll need to relate her to Hannigram somehow, but that’s doable.  That round will close on the 27th, and I’ll have the results out by New Years.

Finally, you see how that banner says “fanfiction links” and “fanart links”? We could totally use those! Tweet or DM @canadagraphs3 on twitter if you have works you’d like listed.  In order to keep with our theme, they should be Hannibal (duh), Hannigram (preferable but not 100% required), and relate in some way to at least one of the following: Canada, moose, maple leaves/syrup, poutine, or Canadian whiskey.
