*Blind Date* Newt x reader
◘ Anonymous asked:
I got so excited when I saw that requests were open because I love your writing and I’ve been patiently waiting for them to be open again! Could you do one where Tine sets reader and Newt up on a blind date? Reader and Newt were best friends (and secret crushes) in Hogwarts before Newt got expelled. Tina thinks they’re perfect for each other (but she doesn’t know they know each other) Then when they finally meet after all those years, they confess the feelings they’ve had for each other.
Newt plopped down at the table and yawned. He was absolutely exhausted from caring for his creatures the last few hours and couldn’t wait to relax after some dinner.
“Working hard down there?” Jacob shot Newt a friendly smile. Newt nodded as he reached over to grab his cup of water.
“You need more human interaction, buddy.”
“Yeah! When was the last time you went on a date, honey?” Queenie’s eyes lit up as she asked her question and Newt almost choked on his drink.
“Yeah, when was the last time you went on a date?” Tina turned to look at the now blushing wizard. Newt tilted his head low and tried to avoid making eye contact.
“I… I don’t know the first thing about dating….”
“We can help you with that, honey!”
“Come to think of it,” Tina shifted a bit closer to Newt before continuing, “There’s this new girl who just started a few weeks ago at MACUSA and she’s from London. She’s super sweet and I think you two could really hit it off.”
Newt pushed his food around on his plate, trying to ignore the uncomfortable feeling of all eyes being on him.
