    Summary

    Then, to his dismay, Bedelia laughed. It was an unsettling sound, a cymbal crash. It was mirthless graveyard laughter.

    “If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Hannibal Lecter, it’s that he will survive. And, if he is to survive, he will be sure you do, too.” The laughter at the edges of her words had faded, but he could still feel the ripples of it. “You need a plan. He will certainly have one.”

    ******
    Hannibal and Will survived the fall, with a little help. Can they now survive each other? Can they survive the ones hunting them?

    Half flashback to immediately after the fall; half story line involving slightly more established Hannigram.

    Summary

    Tina juts her chin playfully, expertly weaving around a stalled pedestrian without breaking her stride. “And what kind of ‘contact’ would that entail, Mr. Scamander?” There’s a playful challenge in her eyes and tone but he doesn’t rise to the bait; instead, he looks thoughtful as he glances around.

    Summary

    Tina despairs that he generally keeps it polite, but her Newt contains multitudes and one night he throws his normal reticence over in favor of hunger, and succeeds in stealing her breath.

    Possibly her heart, as well.

    Summary

    Her Newt is sprawled on the iron next to her, sweat darkening the wrists and collar of his shirt. He’s long since given up on any semblance of propriety in favor of comfort, and as the clouds swell and darken overhead, a cool breeze stirs up and the first drops of rain fall, opaquing his shirt. Newt tilts his head back and just breathes.

    Summary

    “I needed that,” Tina says softly, and she catches his eye with a smile. “I think you did too.”

    Newt nods, seeing no need to hide this from her. (He doesn’t hide anything from her anymore, and she’s cradled his heart long enough for him to trust her with it entirely.) “Yes, I did.”

    Summary

    The crowd murmurs and flows around him, but he is solid and steady and dependable, weather-beaten but immutable. My Newt, she thinks, and wipes her eyes.

    (The tears have been a constant companion, these past days. She can’t consider that an improvement over her typical stoicism.)

    Summary

    Luke’s the one who says “let’s be in love forever”, because he’s the last one left who’s a little naïve, a little bloody-kneed, a little bit thoughtful about what might come next, and after and after and after.

    “Kid, you won’t even survive long enough for society to judge you,” Han says, cigarettes and coffee, and Leia says nothing.

    Summary

    Now she’s falling again, falling hard, and she’s divided: his knuckles are cool on her cheek and his impossibly green eyes say everything that his mouth still can’t, and it’s on the tip of her tongue to beg him to stay. He’s caught her once already, but she has no guarantee that he’s willing to catch her again. So she says nothing; instead, he promises to return to her, book in hand, and Tina can’t keep the skip from her step after he leaves.

    He sighed, he certainly wasn't rich. For how much money one person can make, it has to be a lot to last a lifetime, and it has to be a lot more than a lot to last an indefinite number of lifetimes.
    He inhaled noisily and that inevitably brought his attention back to the mirror.
    Young again. For no apparent reason. Right.

    Summary

    There’s a theory that people born from the same star gravitate to each other. It's an ethereal desire so to speak, that pulls Queen Victoria and Lord Melbourne together; a basic and primal want stemmed from atoms demanding to return to each other.
