    Summary

    Aposematism in animals is designed to prevent attack. It doesn't always work, sometimes it's ineffective against some predators, sometimes it isn't. As a primary defence mechanism, Newt is a colourful individual with his blue coat and golden hair. His secondary defences aren't visible however and often are what surprise his opponents the most. Bright creatures tend to be very toxic to predators, but mammals like honey badgers are aggressively defensive. Newt is a Hufflepuff and the emblem of his house suits him well. Signalling theory tells you that Newt warns off predators and opponents with his colours, but when they don't take heed he'll show his claws and fight tooth-and-nail. It's what survivors do.

    And Newt Scamander is definitely a survivor.

    Summary

    Mildly spicy fluff with a touch of angst. You decide to punish a misbehaving Julian, but his reaction is a little more dramatic than you expected... (aka Julian has A Sad.)

    ———

    A little mischief is fine, even desirable; you do love the getting even part. But lately he’s been more mischief than compliance.

    This is just no good at all.
