    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

    or: Five times Percival Graves said he was married, and one time Tina believed him.

    When Director Graves starts elaborating on his supposed husband, the entire department is even more certain he doesn't exist - an author and a dragon tamer, who's somehow captured a creature that can kill a hundred wizards at a time? And what sort of name is Newt, anyway?

    Tina's one of them - at least, until Newt Scamander, magizoologist, shows up in New York and lets a Niffler loose. And when he realises Graves has been replaced by an imposter, things only get more complicated from there.

    Summary

    There was a knock on the door and Chloe smiled before turning back to her daughter and partner. “Okay, Monkey, be good for Lucifer! And thanks again, Lucifer, really,” she smiled gently at him as she opened the door. “Behave, both of you!” she said playfully before she left, Marcus Pierce at her side.

    As the door closed behind her, both Lucifer and Trixie sighed moodily at the same time. With no complaints, Lucifer carried her around the to the front of the couch and sat. They were quiet for a long, long while, until Trixie said softly and with a pout, “My tummy hurts, but in a sad way, not a sick way.”
