Harry refuses to admit that he's affected by Veela allure, despite Draco's creative attempts to convince him. Oneshot.

“This is all good and well,” Percival tells the Goldsteins, “but what about the egg that will inevitably become an occamy that lives in my coat pocket?”
Tina furrows her brow and puts on a stern scowl; she stares.
“Mr. Graves doesn’t answer personal questions,” Queenie says seriously.

Six months later, Porpentina Goldstein frees Percival Graves from his prison. He recovers, he returns to work, and he learns how to cope and how to move on and how to let people back in after crippling betrayal. Then he meets Newt Scamander and he has to learn how to deal with an eccentric Brit who somehow worms his way into Percival's heart, one bright smile at a time.

Deaf!Graves is terrific.

When Percival wakes up and sees a different ceiling than the dark, blood splattered one of his prison for the first time in three months, his first thought is, I’m going to owe Newt the biggest IOU ever.
Or: Percival Graves and Newt Scamander have been saving each other in turns for years. So, really, Newt revealing Grindelwald is just another Wednesday in his book.

Five times one of Newt’s creatures hitched a ride to work with Graves, and one time he took them along on purpose.

Aposematism in animals is designed to prevent attack. It doesn't always work, sometimes it's ineffective against some predators, sometimes it isn't. As a primary defence mechanism, Newt is a colourful individual with his blue coat and golden hair. His secondary defences aren't visible however and often are what surprise his opponents the most. Bright creatures tend to be very toxic to predators, but mammals like honey badgers are aggressively defensive. Newt is a Hufflepuff and the emblem of his house suits him well. Signalling theory tells you that Newt warns off predators and opponents with his colours, but when they don't take heed he'll show his claws and fight tooth-and-nail. It's what survivors do.
And Newt Scamander is definitely a survivor.

Original prompt: They're auctioning dates off at MACUSA for some charity cause, and since Newt is a consultant, Queenie convinces him to volunteer. Nobody really takes this seriously, she insists, and it's all in good fun. And for most of the night, it is; Queenie even gets 'auctioned off' and it all seems very casual and in good humor.
Except the guy who starts seriously bidding on Newt is well known as a sexually harassing sleazebag, and nobody has the extra money to bid against him. Nobody?

Very well-written. Period slang.
