    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

    Premise: What if Hannibal weren't such a dick?

    All from prompts I got on tumblr. These used to be with the rest of the tumblr ficlets but there are so many of them now I thought it would be easier if they had their own doc.

    Summary

    Art by TheSeaVoices, writing by weconqueratdawn, concept by both

    -

    Something which started as a one shot and evolved into something much bigger.

    This is the main series - several short romance stories featuring a clever, young, genderfluid Will and following their relationship with an ambiguously-positioned Hannibal. Is he good, bad, or somewhere in between? Even weconqueratdawn doesn't know but expect to find out by the end :)

    Accompanied by timestamps and a dedicated tumblr - feel free to come talk to us there.

    Much more to come in 2018!

    Summary

    Written for Tumblr's @madwriterscorner. Prompt was 'Hematolagnia' between Hannibal and Will. (Has potential to be extended if there's a demand.)

    Will's dreams have been growing bloodier and bloodier and Hannibal has a suggestion that might 'cure' him. But it's not just for Will's benefit.
