    Summary

    Percival had gone. Percival had gone and Theseus enrolled in the Auror Academy because Captain Theseus Taliesin Felix Scamander was good at war, good at tactics and killing and he didn’t know how to make that a talent that would let him sleep at night. Some days the training exhausted him enough he could sleep at night; some days he woke screaming until his throat was hoarse and his brother came running.

    Sometimes he didn’t sleep at all. Sometimes he went into Soho and drank until he could shed the skin of Captain Scamander, until gin and the taste of a stranger’s skin replaced the blood and muck of the trenches. He lost himself in other people, their taste, their touch, and sometimes, when the strongest gin and the hardest fuck couldn’t make the artillery stop, he found other people who understood the apocalypse. They had been used; they had been cheated, and the posh old men who sent their neighbors’ sons (oh, never their own) to die were never going to pay for it.

    Summary

    The Macusa Monarchs have a chance at the Stanley Cup and star player Percival Graves has every intention of taking his team the entire way. He's got good players at his back too; his best friend and sometimes lover Theseus Scamander, Queenie Goldstein, the sunniest goalie ever, and defensemen Newt and Tina.

    There's a new player too, fresh from the minor leagues: Credence Barebone. He skates hard, hits fast and must have eyes in the back of his head. If only he didn’t spend so much time with the new offensive coordinator Gellert Grindelwald.

    aka the hockey AU that no one ever asked for.

    Summary

    “I would very much like for the seventh to just be your birthday again.” The and not went unspoken. And not the day where their Floo call had just been just off enough that Theseus had caught a Portkey to New York. Not the day when MACUSA had torn Credence to shreds. Not the day when Graves' Aurors had found him trapped and dying of thirst, the Imperius Curse rendering him so docile that he couldn’t even act to keep himself alive.

    [December 7th is a day that carries too much weight.]

    Summary

    The Barebone family has a history. They are descendants of the Scourers, a rogue group of witches and wizards who began as bounty hunters and became willing to hunt their own kind when MACUSA was being founded.

    Many of the Scourers were brought to justice by MACUSA and its legendary first twelve Aurors, including, of course, Gondulphus Graves. However, not all of them were. Some went underground, marrying No-Majs and disappearing into non-wizarding society. Mary Lou’s fervent belief in magic is a family business.

    Ultimately, this means that there are two traditions, two approaches to magic in the Barebone family. The preacher is one who rallies others, works to expose the wizarding world and abhors magic in all its forms. The Scourer is the other, the weapon who forsakes their own soul and wields a dark and half-forgotten form of magic. Mary Lou tells Credence that his mother was a wicked and unnatural woman. His magical talent is recognized from the beginning, so who says he ends up a preacher?

    Summary

    Something about the way his Auror had slumped against the wall, blood leaking from his mouth had reminded him of Sam Crispin hung on concertina wire, bleeding and twitching in no man’s land as the gray sky clotted in his blood and flowers burnt all around.

    Summary

    “You don’t even like dessert,” Credence pointed out, even as he let Percival take him by the hand and lead him into the kitchen.

    “You do.” And for Percival, it was as simple as that. Credence liked it and Percival needed no other justification. His kindness was casual and instinctive and Credence couldn’t articulate how much he loved him for it. He’d tried before and Percival had touched his face and told him Credence, that’s just what you do for people you love, but Credence was still unconvinced that orchestrating bi-continental treason at the highest level of two magical governments to keep your lover safe was anything resembling par for the course.

    Summary

    “No. Just--Can we not?” They were both coated with mud. With blood. The boy’s, their own, the garden’s and Anna was so tired. She couldn’t imagine Mabel being any less worn. “The King is dead. We’re back. Can we just-- one night. One night and then tomorrow we can deal with the boy and whoever sent him and everything else just..”

    “You just want to have a conversation,” and there was an edge, a sarcasm in Mabel’s voice as if she couldn’t believe that they were doing this again. “Not us-as-archetypes, not you skeletal and me--”

    “I want to make you dinner. You burning. And me skeletal,” Anna said. “I’m not naive, Mabel.”

    Summary

    Theseus writhing against his tongue, his mouth was like worship. Communion. It was all the things the Graves family had eschewed since the day Gondulphus had seen the Scourers burn one of their own at the stake and the only way Graves knew how to sing vespers was to make Theseus scream it.

    or: Christmas on the front lines gets harder every year. Graves is bad at talking, but his actions say plenty.

    Summary

    For Credence, the end of the war came in a brief flare of green smoke and the flutter of a piece of paper. The ripe scent of Floo flame-- melted paint, scorched wood, herbal and worn-- drifted through too big flat and he slid off the couch to go read it.

    It’s done. Home soon.-- PGG the neatly folded note read, as if Credence somehow couldn’t recognize his lover’s handwriting after eighteen years. An anticlimax in swooping calligraphy.

    After decades of anxiety as Grindelwald’s influence grew on the continent, nearly two years of fear as the United Kingdom went to war and MACUSA dithered and fought amongst itself before finally leaping into the fray.

    But it was done and Percival and Theseus would come home weary in body and soul and the least he could do was give his lovers a haven.

    Summary

    No one gets Samhain off in the Department of Magical Security and on a night where magic misfires and beasts go berserk, Credence thinks it might be best that he stays in the Woolworth Building with his caretakers. Queenie Goldstein, however, isn't letting the holiday go completely uncelebrated.

    Featuring divination games, a surprising number of apples and no one being good at that talking thing.

    Summary

    You’re sleeping, Anna, curled up by my thigh, all smooth curves and warm ochre. Even here, even under the Hill, your body remembers to do it, remembers dawn and dusk, the linear and regular progression of time as the sun chased the moon through the sky. You’re sleeping. Or maybe it’s your body remembering to die, the poison in your veins.

    (I don’t know. I’m not the nurse, not the home care health specialist. Tell me Anna; what does atropine poisoning look like?)

    Summary

    Being able to dance was another thing Graves was sure he had lost to Gellert Grindelwald. His broken shin had healed at a gruesome angle during his captivity, just enough to make magical healing difficult and imperfect. His right shin could barely bear his own weight walking or standing, let alone running. Or dancing.

     

    or, the one where neither Theseus nor Credence are going to let Graves be maudlin.

    Summary

    God, Graves was beautiful. He had been seven years ago too on a camp cot while the artillery pounded overhead and they lost themselves in each other. He'd been beautiful even four years ago on the banks of the Thames when he’d shattered Theseus’ heart into a thousand pieces. But it was 1923 and it was someone else who had broken him this time. It hadn't been Graves and Graves was here. Had come across the Atlantic, dealt with him drunk and sobbing and barely able to stand and Theseus was so, so tired of hurting.

    Summary

    Set in the same universe as We Get What We Deserve, after a Tumblr ask turned into nearly 2300 words of rambling. Unbetaed because really, this was just supposed to be a little drabble-y thing

    Summary

    Sergeant Niall Cavanaugh of the NYPD did not expect the Devil to have such impeccable taste. There was, however, no other explanation for the finely dressed middle aged man who had just appeared in the chair across from his desk with a rush of air and black smoke.

    Percival Graves has never let anything as unimportant as the Rappaport Law get in the way of doing his job.

    Summary

    Percival Graves knew he would have to pick up the pieces that Gellert Grindelwald had left of his life. He didn’t expect Credence Barebone to be one of those pieces.
