    Summary

    The funny thing about wizards, Credence thought, was that normal people claimed to know everything about them when in reality they knew nothing at all.
    ---
    In which Credence runs away from home to live in Newt’s moving castle and becomes a rather formidable wizard himself in the process.

    Or, a magical AU fic that begins with a dash of inspiration from Howl’s Moving Castle (and a bit of Stardust) and then wanders merrily off in its own direction.

    Summary

    It was just a butterfly.

    A pretty, ivory-colored butterfly gently resting against his knuckles.

    For half a second, Credence’s heart skipped a beat. There was a witch on this ship. A witch that knew who and what he was…A witch that had deliberately sent this abomination-...

    He froze.

    If the paper butterfly was an abomination, then what was he?

    He turned to search for the witch or wizard who sent this and found-...

    No one.

    No one was there.

    But, Credence suspected, that he was not alone.

    Summary

    For all that has happened, being touched feels so good. It feels so good that tears burn the underside of his eyelids, and no scorching heat of past or circumstance could make him stop loving how it feels.

    Summary

    There’s a problem with the swooping evil venom, in that it removes bad memories. Jacob’s memories of magic weren’t exactly what you would call bad, but they weren’t the only memories he had.

    Summary

    John Watson has a major grudge on Sherlock Scamander. Not only is Sherlock his arch enemy in Quidditch, but he also happens to be an infuriating smart arse (and not at all attractive). Even when they start stirring up trouble together and maybe save a life or two. Tina, John’s twin sister, is a devout rule-follower given her career aspirations as an Auror, so when she stumbles upon Sherlock’s twin brother Newt attempting to raise baby dragons, something has to be done.

    It quickly becomes evident that they may have bitten off more than they can chew, between with dark magic, Professor Grindelwald's suspicious activities, attempted Unforgivable Curses, and the mysterious name "Eurus", but neither Watsons nor Scamanders are ever able to turn down a good mystery—even if it means more near death experiences than should be happening at Hogwarts. Filled with conflict, adventure, and maybe even a little bit of romance, this foursome’s seventh year is certainly going to be one to remember.

    Summary

    Born an orphan on the ruthless streets of Athens, Credence has learned to be adaptive; tending to a temple as a slave adopted by Ma. He's never known kindness or love, told all his life that he is cursed with unnatural beauty that tempts the most noble of men. Credence strongly believes the Gods have a purpose for him and by an Oracles vision; Credence is warned that he will meet his fate but it will be in gold and blood. When he is traded off to Rome as a slave on the market, his fate ends up in the hands of the Emperor of Rome--King Percival Graves, known as the Destroyer of cities and conqueror of lands, but the Roman people call him the King of Gold.

    Summary

    Dear Credence,

    The witch tells me that if I burn this letter in this candle, it will show up where you are, which sounds very stupid but the witch has a cat’s head so I’m taking her as an authority on stupid things. I trust you and Modesty are well. If you’re not, I trust that you’re going to do something about it.

    Summary

    Jaded FBI special agent Percival Graves is tracking a series of brutal homicides when he discovers a young man at one of the crime scenes. Bruised and terrified, Credence Barebone has no memory of the crime he was witness to—which resulted in the deaths of his mother and sisters—and forms an attachment to his savior, Graves. After being discharged from the hospital, Credence moves in with the agent, and their bond grows stronger even as Percival’s investigation leads him to question Credence’s involvement in the increasing number of unsolved murders.

    Summary

    The Barebone family has a history. They are descendants of the Scourers, a rogue group of witches and wizards who began as bounty hunters and became willing to hunt their own kind when MACUSA was being founded.

    Many of the Scourers were brought to justice by MACUSA and its legendary first twelve Aurors, including, of course, Gondulphus Graves. However, not all of them were. Some went underground, marrying No-Majs and disappearing into non-wizarding society. Mary Lou’s fervent belief in magic is a family business.

    Ultimately, this means that there are two traditions, two approaches to magic in the Barebone family. The preacher is one who rallies others, works to expose the wizarding world and abhors magic in all its forms. The Scourer is the other, the weapon who forsakes their own soul and wields a dark and half-forgotten form of magic. Mary Lou tells Credence that his mother was a wicked and unnatural woman. His magical talent is recognized from the beginning, so who says he ends up a preacher?
