A/n: just a short little fic I wanted to get out because this idea has been on my mind for ages! I didn’t really put that much effort into this one because I’ll most likely write up a smut version of this ! Newt is such a hot nerd wow
Pretty red lips, hair slightly curled. Tonight you were dolled up
and ready to head out for dinner with your friends. Newt bit his lip as he
sketched the way you looked tonight, making sure to emphasise the darkness of
your eyeliner. He could barely contain himself as he observed you, wand in his
mouth, pencil drawing out the curves of your body in that tight-fitting dress.
He wasn’t much of an artist, but he made sure to at least capture every rare
creature he came across.
“Newt, are you coming?” Queenie chimed as you, Tina and Jacob were
filing out the door. You lingered there, your painted nails tapping on the wooden
frame as you waited.
“Sorry, I just needed to note something I remembered.” He replied,
hoping that he wasn’t blushing under your gaze. He looked down upon his
notebook before he closed it up, binding it and throwing it into his suitcase.
American spells are silent.
American spells are silent- one of the only people to use verbal spells in the WHOLE movie was Newt. The British guy.
American spells are silent- their country was colonized by Puritans. America, from the time of its colonization, persecuted witches. They taught silent spells so they didn’t draw attention to wizardkind.
