    Summary

    Eliot's their hitter, and taking on any physical threats to the team is his job, but there's something beyond professionalism – even beyond the obvious fact that Eliot relishes the fight itself – in the way he puts his body between Parker or Alec and any potential threat. Alec has a good view of Eliot's back on a lot of jobs, and he reads something in the tight line of Eliot's shoulder, in the slow turn of his foot as he steps into a fighting stance.

    Something possessive.

    Summary

    The first thing Percival Graves does after being released back into the world is buy a new wand. He's at Greymalkin's for ten minutes and the only wand that works for him is raw aspen, whiter than bone and so rough that Graves gives himself a splinter conjuring a storm of birds. The wand—dragon heartstring, a most unusual wand for an American wizard, according to a flustered Greymalkin—feels wild, and Graves empties half his wallet on the counter and keeps his hand on his new wand all the way home.

    The second thing he does is quit his job, because honestly.

    ("Grindelwald did his research before he put on your face," Seraphina says reasonably. "And it's not like you're open with your personal life. He has us all fooled."

    "He wore scorpion stickpins!" Graves shoots back, somewhat less reasonably.

    Seraphina looks at Graves, his pressed creases, his immaculate shirt, the red ruby cufflinks he's wearing to hide the starved brittleness of his wrists. "I'm sorry," she says. It is not enough to make him stay.)

    The third thing he does is get jumped by Credence Barebone in an alley.

    Summary

    So the bad news was that Credence saw through his No-Maj repellent charm every time, and the worse news was that now Graves came off as a stalker who bought young boys. “Look, I think we got off on the wrong foot. I’m Percival Graves.”
     

    In which Percival Graves is completely hopeless outside of his professional life, and even more so when it comes to Credence.

    Pre-movie and then canon-divergence.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of New York's near-scandal, Auror Percival Graves is rescued from the cellar of his own home, having spent months as a prisoner to Gellert Grindelwald. President Picquery, hoping to grant him some relief and a reprieve from the magical and political scene, sends him on a sabbatical of sorts, shipping him off to a small No-Maj town on the upper east coast.

    There he finds neither relief nor a reprieve, but a young man with a dark past, a familiarity he cannot place, and a loneliness to rival his own.
