    Summary

    A party was never quite a proper party in Tevinter until there was at least one assassination attempt, and the novelty in the attempt at Magister Caius’ party lay not quite in its actual occurrence but in the ambition of its assassin.

    At the height of Caius’ decidedly juvenile lyrium-laced drinking game, during the start of dinner, Magister Fabiana made a sudden gesture close to the Divine, all the while leaning closer, as if to say something private. Divine Leonthius' hand snapped up, viper-quick, grabbing Fabiana’s hand high on the wrist. She rose from her seat, fright and outrage both in her eyes, fire stealing hot up from her trapped wrist before it was abruptly… gone.

    Shock froze Fabiana’s snarl in her throat, even as, with a gentle, almost intimate economy, Leonthius pulled Fabiana towards him and shoved a dagger up through her ribcage.

    This is obviously well thought out and researched. It focuses mainly on Dorian's POV and even includes a time travel portion to it that plays tribute to his recruitment arc in the game. Very well done, and I wish I had more because I so do love how they portray Tevinter politics in this.

    Grindelwald turns Graves into a wampus in a dungeon. This follows that time and the after effects of dealing with that as he's stuck and no one knows it's actually him after he has been rescued.

    Summary

    “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.

    After the Grindlewald fiasco, Graves is left without his hearing. This story follows his recovery and how he deals with being deaf. There are trying times, but we do get a happy ending for him as he finally finds ways to adapt. This also has a freaking cute occamy service animal in it.

    Summary

    It is normal - expected - the way of the world - but it still makes Newt freeze when he hears Tina teasing Percival about his crush on Theseus. His heart, it seems, forgets a beat. He stops stock-still where he is, hot coffee splashing out of his cup and onto his fingers.

    Why do I love fics where the main character is hurting themselves with self-deprecating thoughts? Why do I hurt myself reading these things? I don't know.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a whirlwind of a fic. I came in for a coffee shop au which tend to be cute but end up with betrayal and tension. It is amazing. Heavily inspired by the low chaos route of Dishonored but has a lot of twists and variations that it isn't just a retelling of the events in a "modern" format. It will keep you on your toes and prepare yourself for a bit of a read.
