    Bookmarker's Notes

    This fic feels like a big shoebox of old polaroids that the color's going off on; you can practically smell the nicotine-grimed linoleum and the paint chipping on the windowsills.

    It's the movie you'd get if the Scorsese-type dramas from the seventies had been more focused on character studies and less on semi-glamorized street crime.

    This fic is amazing.

    Summary

    There’s a boy in an alley and his name is Credence. There’s a boy in an alley and Graves can’t stay away. It isn’t killing him, yet, but it will; he isn’t counting kisses he can’t keep, yet, but he will, he will.

    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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    you like fairie lore? you like the vaguely unsettling side of magical things?

    this fic is, without exaggeration, one of the best things I've ever fucking read.

    In which Percival Graves receives a letter, and a proposal; in which Credence Barebone hears something he shouldn't, and comes to all the wrong conclusions.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    You Ready To Feel An Emotion???? Go read Shoreline, then wait for a day when you already feel emotionally vulnerable and read this sequel. If you're anything like me, you'll be crying into the Taco Bell you bought yourself to try and handle the day you were having.

    By which I mean to say: a solid 5/5, give it a read and your kudos.
