‘He’s not dangerous…i provoked him’
'Why can’t you accept that some of these creatures are not good - you’re beginning to sound like a certain
young friend of yours’
Graves had to step in and he would have killed the beast if he didn’t know that by doing so Newt would never speak to him again so he just scared it off.
Graves is looking at all the scars with a mounting sense of agitation. There would be many very heated arguments about Newt and his beasts. Until the eventual cliché - 'Why do you even care???’ Graves would be so frustrated and quite a bit disappointed 'If you haven’t figured that out by now, I won’t be the person to tell you. And off he storms.
Newt huffs and grumbles because this kind of complication is the reason he prefers the company of beasts
Maybe theres a situation where Graves ends up endangered and THATS when it clicks for Newt
Oh, this is why Graves gets so bothered over Newts scratches and scrapes
He might be playing down his injuries
Like either some dark wizard or one of Newts beasts strikes at Graves because he senses that Newt is pissed at him and Newt throws himself between them 'Not him! No, you don’t hurt him, BAD BOY"
A trader, illegally and cruelly trading animals on the black market. And Graves steps in to protect the beasts.
Imagine him waking up later and Newts at his bedside fussing with the blankets and avoiding his gaze. Graves groans and mutters 'You are a terrible influence’
And Newt gives a slightly hysterical giggle and wipes at his eyes, half laughing and sobbing.
Graves sighs like this is really so exasperating
'Come here’ and he gets Newt to lay his head on his chest and strokes his hand over Newts hair
