    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.

    This story updates Monday/Wednesday/Saturday rain or shine. It is complete (posting on a schedule) and not even Author Existence Failure will stop it from running to completion.

    Summary

    "Don't make that face, Perce, you'd understand if you'd seen the kid. He's like what you imagine those little woodland nymphs to be like in mythology. Almost ethereal." Sam says, raising an eyebrow at him, and Percival sighs once more, but looks up. "Fine. I'll take the bet as long as it gets you to shut your mouth." He says exasperatedly, making Sam grin in triumph.

    Summary

    Credence wanders out of the church once the girls are asleep. Ma is sitting at the kitchen table and barely spares him a glance when he walks past. He walks a few streets over and loiters at the edge of the alley there. It doesn’t take long for a man to come up and run his hand through Credence’s hair and he shudders. He tries to pretend it’s Mr. Graves' hand. Ever since he met the man, he’s been doing just that.

    ---

    Now in the shower he thinks of dark brown eyes that are almost black, he thinks of chasing away tears and scars with his lips as he does with his hands. He doesn’t think of anyone in MACUSA in that way anymore, not even Hughes’s handsome features aren’t given a second thought. Not now he’s met this poor No-Maj boy who’s going to be the death of him.

    Summary

    The Barebone children's lives before December 1926.

    None of them are normal and only have each other as a true family. They will do anything to keep each other safe and create a home. One's a squib, another's an obscurial, and another's just a young witch that doesn't know it.

    They all are dealing with the same evil together, or for Chastity alone for years.

    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

    Pretty Woman AU!

    “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

    Soulmates marks first appear at birth, but can change throughout time.

    If one is born before the other, a small design will appear. Once their mate is born, their name will take the place of the design. If one changes their name, the mark will change once more.

    This is the case for Percival Graves and Credence Barebone.

    ****

    This is a soulmate AU where Percival and Credence don't meet until after the events of FBAWTFT, and their journey of recovery.

    Sounds a little corny, but is actually pretty dark.

    Summary

    Newt never saw the body that Credence's obscurial belonged to. But it didn't matter, because obscurials can sense each other, and when Credence sensed someone else, someone like him, inside the suitcase, he jumped in, Graves and consequences be damned.

    Summary

    They are starting something, but there are strings left trailing; old wounds that need dressing. Underneath all the broken parts, there is hope.

    Takes place after my story "Soon, He Will". Maybe read that before reading this? Probably makes more sense if you do, but I can't tell you what to do; I'm not your boss.

    Summary

    Sometimes Credence closes his eyes, and he imagines the ceiling of his very small bedroom is covered in angels. They bloom out of the deep black abyss of his ceiling, their wings spreading like wet paint, fiery and strong and so, so bright.
