Anonymous asked: haha, about the portal AU, chilton is more like wheatley, hanni should be glados
Based on personality, I would most definitely agree with you. Based on circumstances, I thought that being trapped at Aperture to be tested by an immoral creature whose only focus is to keep on testing would be a fitting parallel to Will being locked up at the Baltimore State Hospital while Chilton keeps begging to test him.
How about a compromise? We will make it a Portal 2 AU. That way we’ll have Hannibal as GLaDOS in the beginning, then Will defeats him and replaces him with Chilton (because he thinks Chilton is harmless by comparison), only for Chilton to go mad with power, just like Wheatley did. After all the need to test is wired into GLaDOS’s body, and while Hannibal had been able to more or less control the urge, Chilton goes crazy with the need to test. And his ineptitude almost destroys the entire facility, obviously.
This is actually way better than my first idea. The personality differences annoyed me in my initial attempt. Thank you, Anon!
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE SO GODDAMN AWFUL
Chilton being a terrible… terrible surgeon for ciorane!! sorry it took a while, me being afk and whatnot.Ahahah excellent!!! Nothing is better than Chilton being a failure. Thank you for doing this artrade with me!
Mutant AU, taking place in a universe similar to the X-Men universe, where mutants are both feared and discriminated against.
Hannibal isn’t a magical serial killer with the ability to travel around the country and kill people within logically impossible time-frames. He is actually a powerful mutant who can manipulate time and space, teleporting not only across great physical distances but also through time. Nazi’s did in fact eat Mischa (which was probably the traumatic event that made his powers manifest), but as soon as he gained complete control of his powers, he used them to put as much distance between himself and the era in which he grew up, deciding that the world was much more interesting in the 2000s.
Here’s the kicker: no one knows he’s a mutant. There are no physical manifestations, and his self-control is just as impressive when it comes to his powers as it is when it comes to his facial expressions and heart-rate. This is what makes him so dangerous. He looks normal, but he is crazy powerful. His mental defences are just as strong, even mutants with telepathic abilities can’t see him for what he is. He is literally immune to mind-reading.
Which comes in handy when he meets Will Graham. You see, Will is also a mutant, an actual empath and low-level telepath. Everyone knows that Will is a mutant because unlike Hannibal he has almost no control over his powers and can’t hide it. He doesn’t establish eye-contact because the moment he does, he starts hearing the other person’s thoughts and takes on their emotions as if they were his own. Stepping into a fresh crime scene causes him to instantly relive what happened. It’s traumatic as fuck and the only reason he does it is because Jack is one of the few “normal” people he ever met who doesn’t discriminate against him because of what he is. The reason he isn’t actually employed by the FBI is because the FBI has a strict no-mutant policy.
