    Summary

    When after talking in the backseat of his car, trading war stories and battle scars and past heartaches that burned like flames to old photos and ached like fractured ribs, nails in a coffin -- he became hopeful then, traded her optimism and goodness from her for fear.

    It's a strange first revelation, though, when you've got something to lose for the first time, when there's a clear before and after that's her handprints all over his heart. How she forgives him without thinking. How they danced slowly to Kiss From a Rose in the kitchen and laughed themselves silly, tripped a little too hard in love and found each other on the kitchen floor.

    Being just friends is the biggest lie they'll tell on this road to learning each other and taking life as the joke it is.

    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

    Nancy packed her bags and moved out West for Caltech. Jonathan’s East at NYU. Steve’s in the middle, Hawkins, Indiana and separated from the only people who understand by a seemingly endless stretch of land on each side.
    The story doesn't start there, but it doesn't end there, either.
