    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a son, must be in want of a tutor.

    When Credence took on the temporary position of tutor at Woolworth Manor, he wasn't expecting to fall in love with the grand estate, its household staff or his young pupil... never mind the boy's father.

    Summary

    “A man like Grindelwald has no real love for anyone other than himself,” Graves says, pouring tea into each of the mugs. “He’s capable of caring for someone, but only for as long as they’re useful to him.”

    The words hit Credence like a physical blow. He knows their truth, but the memories of slow touches and gentle words still linger. This man is so much like the Mr. Graves he knew before-- still brusk, still self-assured to the point of arrogance, but with a vein of dry humor where only darkness lurked before. He still sets Credence’s heart pounding, and Credence wonders if he got what he deserved for his sins.

    Or, in which Credence goes looking for the man who betrayed him, but finds someone else altogether.

    Summary

    He'd seen it all; loud, aggressive perpetrators and cowering victims, crying, desperate perpetrators and victims who pretended to be angry instead of scared.

    Sometimes the victims became the perpetrators themselves.
