    Summary

    “Credence… is everything alright?"

     

    His jaw drops and a thousand replies flood his mind.

     

    All he can do is stare and recall the tennis match from last Thursday.

     

    Mr Graves had been in a white sweater, khaki shorts, and knee high socks with sneakers. He should have looked ridiculous, clad in simple ’Dad attire’ as Tina had snarked. But all Credence could think about is how handsome he is, how refined he always seems.

    Summary

    A whiff of violets caught Obedience, the scent intense, but not too heavy. There was a tinge of spices, something that seemed to match its wearer’s voice, and Obedience had to keep herself from leaning in in order to smell the fragrance up close.

    Summary

    "The workers at the Mission of the Immaculate Virgin had liked little Matthew. He had been a quiet, smiling child. Smart for his age. Always trailing behind the nuns or the nurses because he didn’t like being alone.

    He looked miserable."

    Summary

    Newt Scamander has a secret, one which he's carried with him since the Great War. He didn't work with the dragon corps, and he wasn't on the Eastern Front; in order to protect his brother from the wrath of their parents, Newt took his brother's place in the war. There he met a young soldier, and fell in love. After the war, after he'd left his lover, Newt buried himself in his study of magical creatures, and for a time he was alright. But when he's passing through New York, on his way to releasing a recuperated Thunderbird, Newt comes face to face with Percival Graves, the man he'd left behind after the war. The only problem is, the man standing in front of him now is not the man he fell in love with, and Newt would very much like to know where he is.

    “You said I could have anything I wanted?” Percival asked in a low voice.

    “If you pay for it, that is,” Credence replied, trying to keep his voice firm. “What do you want?”

    “I want you for the night,” he decided. “How much is that going to cost me?”

    Summary

    Credence had been locked away for as long as he could remember. Ma was mad at him for something. Something in the way that people gave him extra bread on the streets, handed him shiny coins, patted his soft hair, curling at the end.
    “You’re a filthy boy. If you were ever to leave, men would smell your stink and destroy you. I’m doing you a service, boy.”
    She said that, over and over, chopping off his long, soft hair, starving him until his milky skin cracked, teaching him to never look into a man’s eyes, sinful boy.
    People stopped staring, stopped cooing. Avoided him altogether.
    It was for his own good. It was. Credence was wicked in ways he didn’t understand.
    But he couldn’t be locked away forever.

     

    Credence is a Veela, as well as an Obscurial. It's wild for everyone.

    Summary

    This is a story where Credence and Percival are soulmates, but neither one knows it.

    ****

    Credence is ten when Mary Lou first starts beating him with his belt, raining blows down across his back and thighs. One day, when Credence is waiting for the blows to begin, May-Lou hesitates. She stands with her arm half raised, still holding the belt, poised to strike. Slowly, she reaches her other hand forward, gently brushing her fingers across the space between the boy’s shoulders. Credence revels in the soft touch, drinking in the kindness, hope blossoming in his chest.

    Until the tender fingers turn to claws, digging into the smooth flesh of his back.

    “Invert.” Mary Lou spits the word out like it is poison, her nails unforgiving and cutting deep into him, but not nearly as deep as her words. “The name of a man embedded in your very skin! Have you no shame, boy? Parading your whorishness in the house of God!”

    Later, when Mary Lou as quenched her thirst for blood, and Credence is back in his bed, he can’t help running his fingers across the place of his damning mark.

    Summary

    “And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer, because there’s something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.” –Shane Koyczan, “To This Day”

    If someone told Percival Graves he’d spend his fortieth year as a fugitive on the run from MACUSA, in the company of an Obscurial, a smuggler, a Legilimens, and a No-Maj, he would’ve put them in an institution. But now, after a near-miraculous survival of captivity at Grindelwald's hands, he's become a wanted man because he can no longer in good conscience uphold the laws he'd once vowed to protect.

    This is the story of a man on the run, haunted by more ghosts than he cares to count, on a journey that will span an entire continent. This is the story of how Percival Graves saved Credence Barebone from execution; how he fled New York in Newt Scamander’s suitcase; how he got something he never thought he needed: a family.

    Complete.

    Summary

    Credence Barebone used to be a joyful child, always seen with a smile on his face and laughter in his eyes. A normal boy.

    Until his parents were ripped away from him in a freak accident, and Credence was placed into the care of Mary Lou Barebone. Mary Lou was a difficult woman. She despised anything different, anything strange.

    She despised Credence.

    All Credence wanted was his mothers love. But he knew he would never get it.

    After the attack in the subway, Credence went on the run, thankful that most thought he was dead. But what happens when an escaped Gellert Grindelwald also comes after him?

    Well, Credence will just have to be smart.

    Summary

    Real lives, unlike stories, can't be wrapped with a happy "The End". They go on well after the adventures have ended. Gellert Grindelwald doesn't give up that easily, and Credence Barebone's story didn't end down in that subway. This is what happens after the dust settles on New York city, after someone asks the important question: where's the real Percival Graves?

    Or: A story of growth and recovery, where Percival Graves and Credence Barebone try to pick up the pieces that Grindelwald left them in, with varying success.
