    Summary

    “It was him,” he says quietly. “It was Touya.”

    Shouto’s lip curls downward in disgust. Fuyumi looks down at her mug and will not meet his eyes. Enji cannot bring himself to argue with them.

    “I knew you were rotten,” Shouto tells him. “But I never knew you could drive someone that far.”

    Summary

    Keith takes a swim, gains a secret admirer, and finds something to live for.

    There's a cut on his bottom lip, a row of tiny lacerations that smart when he pulls at them to get a better look.

    He doesn't notice the bruise on his upper arm until the next day. He catches the edge of it at the corner of his eye when he's pulling on a fresh shirt: blue lines, like stripes, but when he turns and twists to see how they ring his arm, he realizes what they look like.

    The lines are like fingers. It’s a handprint.

    He does not expect solace or gratification from him, but something living in his chest learns to falter sweet-sore as the years pass.

    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.
