    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

    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

    Congratulations, you have been officially reinstated as an Auror in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. It is my hope that you will take seriously this second chance that you have been given.
    Your first assignment will be to accompany Percival Graves to New Orleans under the guise of his mistress and, therefore, the former mistress of Gellert Grindelwald. To the underworld you are to appear to work counter to Graves, but you must obey him in all things related to the case. This is dangerous ground, Miss Goldstein, and I advise you to be careful.
    Keep him safe, and yourself as well.

     

    Seraphina Picquery,
    President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America

    Summary

    The obliviation charm was probably the nastiest spell that was ever created. Credence would vehemently agree if he knew about its description. As it is, he already hated the unknown person who made all of them forget about the existence of magic. Because it meant they had to start all over again

    Summary

    Credence is spending time with Newt when Mary Lou comes in with Modesty tucked at her side, crying about monsters.

    Percival doesn't mean for the girl to see him snacking, but she does catch glimpses. Maybe a babysitting job will give him chance to make sure she doesn't blabber off to anybody.

    And also a good chance to talk to the boy.
