    Dramatic life events seem to happen to Credence Barebone on Halloween. But having to deal with his psychotic ex-mother yet again just seems like cruel and unusual punishment. Luckily he's got his own personal celebrity crush there for backup.

    Summary

    The streets around them bustled with activity as they slowed to a stop in the thick traffic of New York. Looking out the window at the tightly packed houses along the busy side walk, each identical to the last, Eysil could just make out the skeletal structure of a home in complete ruins.

    Summary

    Tina doesn't know it yet, but her life - her existence - is a lie. Her world is not a dangerous town on the edge of civilization, but a theme park to be enjoyed by guests who pay top dollar to kill, rape, and pillage their way through. She is not a tough-as-nails deputy but a character whose path is on an endless loop. Her life is just a game, a game she can't remember or even enjoy playing.

    But then the memories start coming back. Memories about Sheriff Graves.

    -

    It's the Westworld AU that keeps on killing! I mean, giving. Keeps on giving.

    Summary

    In between the first chapter of 'What is Necessary' and the second, twenty years elapses.

    A lot does.

    Summary

    “Me, brave? Credence, can’t you see? You’ve always been the bravest of us all.“

    Or the one where Grindelwald never came to America, Mary Lou died in the Influenza epidemic of 1918, Chastity is just as magical as Credence, and Modesty’s curiosity knows no bounds.

    Also the one where Credence feels ill-advised emotions for his employer, and his fractious obscurus seems at least partially responsible for the mistakes he keeps making at work.

    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

    Credence starts dreaming that he's a high-ranking government official in a world whose very existence he has always been told is wrong, while Graves starts dreaming that he's a member of a group of people who want to wipe out wizards. But is it really a dream when they wake up with no memory of having done things people around them say they did? Or are they actually swapping bodies with the other person? Is it possible to bridge the gap between two very disparate worlds, and what happens when the person you've been swapping with turns out to be the cause of the destruction and trouble that has been plaguing your department?

    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 Barebone family has a history. They are descendants of the Scourers, a rogue group of witches and wizards who began as bounty hunters and became willing to hunt their own kind when MACUSA was being founded.

    Many of the Scourers were brought to justice by MACUSA and its legendary first twelve Aurors, including, of course, Gondulphus Graves. However, not all of them were. Some went underground, marrying No-Majs and disappearing into non-wizarding society. Mary Lou’s fervent belief in magic is a family business.

    Ultimately, this means that there are two traditions, two approaches to magic in the Barebone family. The preacher is one who rallies others, works to expose the wizarding world and abhors magic in all its forms. The Scourer is the other, the weapon who forsakes their own soul and wields a dark and half-forgotten form of magic. Mary Lou tells Credence that his mother was a wicked and unnatural woman. His magical talent is recognized from the beginning, so who says he ends up a preacher?

    Summary

    For all that has happened, being touched feels so good. It feels so good that tears burn the underside of his eyelids, and no scorching heat of past or circumstance could make him stop loving how it feels.

    Summary

    Credence Grindelwald is on the run from people in his past, and as such, must live a double life and try to restore some sense of peace and balance to his life.

    Percy Graves is a single father going on four years now, hoping against hope every summer will be easier to ignore the pain, but so far, it’s the same old daily drudge.

    When Credence first meets Percy, he’s withdrawn and shy, scared to do more than give a false name and find someplace small of his own to make it through the night in.
