    Summary

    She pushes back her hood, exposing the points of her ears. It is all of thirty seconds before the humans start to notice—they look at her with surprise, then confusion, then rage. She is undaunted.

    Let them see.

    Let them know a Dalish elf has come to Wycome.

    Summary

    The trouble starts at the tailor's, which is strange to even think, let alone experience. A year ago Credence Barebone was happy to have clothes that had holes in just the elbows and knees. Now he doesn't even twitch when Samson, the tailor's excitable apprentice, sticks him with a pin on accident.

    It's not the strangest thing that's happened to Credence this year, but it's close.

    "So," Samson says cheerfully, pricking Credence again as he pins up some loose fabric around Credence's shoulders, "are you going to the Ball?"

    Credence blinks. "I—the Ball?"

    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.
