Draped on nightlife and the loud companionship of other queer men, the only thing people raise their eyebrows at is the relative rarity of Theseus’ name when they meet him. And at the easy swing of his hips when he does the blues, loose and far more at ease than his partner. Nobody bats an eye when he leaves the Brit to his own devices, settling to watch from the sidelines. There’s such life in Theseus - he wouldn’t dare to cage him.
Not even by request.
Blues and tango give off such different vibes. It's 1923, and Theseus and Percival are positive they're better off as friends than as lovers.

“He’s one to keep,” his step-father had said in the dying violet hour of their home in Bath. “He likes apple pie. He’s a good person.”
Theseus let out a laugh. “It’s not just about liking pies, Dad.”
If only liking apple pie made this world worthwhile for all its flaws and clouds of despair.

Somehow, amidst ashes and gravel and lava cooling into rock, small weeds had started to sprout up, covering the scorched landscape of them to fill it in green.
The first vacation they spend together had started so peacefully, Credence had almost feared both Thes and Perce would be bored out of their minds within a week.
A much-needed downtime, to mark what the three of them could be together.

It’s almost funny how Credence can still feel things after what happened. He can make out bewilderment at realizing Mr. Graves’ preferences, ugly jealousy churning out heartburn. Relief, too. He can’t stay - he knows MACUSA won’t hesitate to take a better attempt at killing him if he doesn’t get there first, and he doesn’t want to cause more disturbances. But he’s glad Mr. Graves won’t be left alone.
“Will you take care of him?”, he asks instead.
“It’s the reason I came”, replies Theseus Scamander, but his attention is now on Credence. Taking him in, it seems, from head to toe.
Or, the one when Credence visits a hospital room, and finds a second chance in an unlikely place.

Feeling lulled by Percival’s thumb slipping back and forth across his temple, Credence breathes in deeply, curling his arms around Theseus, snuggles into his warmth. “Hanukkah is the festival of lights and we celebrate it to commemorate the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.”
