    Summary

    Hospitalised for recovery, put on medical leave, and released back into the wizarding world to be left on the doorstep with a name too large, clothes too small, and a crutch he would be reliant on for the rest of his days; Graves, it seems, is to reacquaint himself with his life alone. To find his way towards being well enough to return to work when in truth he died in that infernal place, and all that is left is dust, bones and the echo of what once was. So he refuses.

    Living in a non-magical apartment, recovering on his own without even his magic, he discovers friendship can blossom between the most unlikely of people. But a killer is on the lose, and MACUSA say it's none of their concern. Magic or no magic, they could be coming for anyone.

    Summary

    If Newt had had a little more time in the subway station, Credence would have lived. This is their story.

    Credence Barebone is dead to the wizarding world, but in actuality he is alive and under the hidden care of the Goldstein sisters as well as Newt Scamander. The parasitical obscurus has been torn from him, but his magic remains, and they intend to use the best means they have of training it: with a school. First to Ilvermorny and then to Hogwarts, Newt, Tina, and Queenie open Credence’s mind and heart to the world he had been denied for so long.

    But first stop: the Kowalski bakery.

    Summary

Oh, and punched Gellert Grindelwald in his stupid, stupid face. Not that he would remember any of it come morning.

    Summary

    With a shake of his hand, Credence got to work on the rest of himself. Arms followed hands, his chest and stomach followed that. His entire torso was a bit difficult, like trying to push a sewing needle through thick layers of fabric, but he managed it eventually. His legs were just as gangly and long and awkward as he remembered, and he smiled at them when they flopped against the ground.

    He must have looked odd, like that – entirely human but for a head made of smoke.

    Summary

    From a young age, wizarding children were taught to be wary of no-majs. There was no choice but to live amongst them, despite the dangers. And it was impossible to avoid them, especially in a city such as New York. So they had to blend in. Be polite, but distant. Kind but aloof. To be anything else was dangerous. Be rude and evoke suspicion and hatred. Too friendly and it drew people too close and risked being caught.

    Percival had been taught the law as a child, followed it faithfully as a teen, and enforced it as an adult. But one moment of being a gentleman towards a frazzled no-maj would set on a course that changed his opinion on the law between magic and no-maj worlds.

    Summary

    Graves being on the brink of death from a combination of dehydration, starvation and infected wounds after Grindelwald got everything he wanted to know and left Graves to rot in captivity. And that's when the visits start. Graves thinks it's a hallucination: a boy he doesn't recognise, someone he's never met, who brings him water/food/healing potions. And as the days go on Graves gets stronger, realises the boy isn't a figment of his imagination and that he's probably falling for one of Grindelwald's followers.

    Summary

    There was little to Credence besides the voices, the never-ending self-doubt and self-deprecation, the phantom pain and phantom touches that blended together into a symphony of bleeding palms and feather-forceful hands and mocking words that echoed through his mind as shadows ripped him apart.

    Summary

    There was no response, but he felt them shift a little closer.

    Graves tilted his face into the warmth of the British sunlight, perched in the garden of Scamander’s home, and he sighed happily. “Which one is it, then?” he asked when there was still no answering voice. “Modesty?” he leaned back, his hands uncurling from his lap as he balanced his weight on them, pressing his palms into the warm ground. “Or Credence? If you’re looking for Newt, I believe he went into the woods to check on someone, one of his creatures.”

    Still no answer.

    “Daniel is inside, with a pot of tea the last I checked.”

    Something wrapped around his wrist and a voice bloomed inside his mind.

    He hurt you too.

    Summary

    Newt Scamander did not see a boy worthy of abuse. He saw a flightless bird, and if nothing else, Newt was good at helping hurt creatures.

     

    (an entire idea based around the fact that this takes place in the "roaring 20s" and I liked the idea of Newt Scamander at a fancy party, so that eventually happens even though barely, also crewt)

    Summary

    Modern AU.

    Mary Lou Barebone is convinced that the new principal of the local high school, Percival Graves, is a wizard, and ceases homeschooling Credence to send him to investigate further. However, in order to get close to Graves, Credence has to keep getting in trouble so he is sent to the principal’s office.

    Unfortunately for Credence, Mr. Graves takes discipline very seriously – especially when it’s a pretty boy causing all the trouble.

    Summary

    I wanted to be someone else. Someone more.

    Someone who stood tall and proud, and who could help those who didn't want the help but who truly needed it. A man who asked for nothing in return- a truly Righteous Man.

    My name was once Credence Barebone, and I was saved by a doctor with Death written across his fingers.

    Summary

    "...P-please... Please, help me..."

    Neither of them had planned beyond this point, so of course they surely hadn't planned anything for the far future. All they knew was they had to help Credence, and that's what they were going to do.
