    Summary

    'Alone this Yuletide? Irritated with prying and nosey family members?

    I am an out of work blacksmith currently trying to make my way by any means necessary that does not involve my resorting to thievery (prisons are most uncomfortable, I've unfortunate first hand experience). However, if you would like me to be your strictly platonic companion for any social function, but have me pretend that we are in a serious courtship, so as to torment your family and ward off unwanted suitors then I am more than obliging...'

    After becoming increasingly irritated by overtures of romance from various Shire residents following the death of his mother four years ago, Bilbo is more than ready to resort to desperate measures. That is, up to and including pretending to be in a serious relationship with a certain surly blacksmith currently inhabiting the Bindbale Woods.

    It's a good idea after all; all they have to do is pretend to be in love over the Yuletide period and Bilbo's family and suitors will surely leave him alone after that. It's perfect!

    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.
