Watched Fantastic Beasts again and no offense but President Picquery is trash.
When Tina shows up with Newt and his case of creatures, Picquery doesn’t even ask what she wants. For all she knew, Tina could have just caught this man using the Cruciatus curse on No-Majs in the middle of the street. But nope, not interested. Get out of my sight, Miss Goldstein, I’m too busy stating the obvious to Mr Graves over here.
Later on, a No-Maj is killed, Tina shows up with thE SAME MAN she brought to Picquery earlier that day, and finally gets to tell her what’s happened.
(And after hearing that Newt arrived there that same day, she rounds that up to “you’ve known for 24 hours” - clearly Ilvermorny needs to make sure its students can do basic maths and timekeeping.)
And she makes out like Tina waited until someone was killed to tell her about Newt and his case even though the FIRST thing she did after catching Newt was bring him STRAIGHT UP to the office to tell Picquery.
Skip ahead to having Credence killed, and justifies it by calling him a criminal, despite knowing the unstable and uncontrollable nature of the Obscurial.
And even after Newt, who owes her *less* than nothing, does her whole fucking job for her, she tells him to Obliviate Jacob and DOESN’T even talk to Jacob, she just talks about him like he’s some kind of stray dog like ??????
“Is that No-Maj still here?” Jacob stands right in front of her. “Obliviate him.” YES PICQUERY THAT HUMAN BEING WITH THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS IS HERE, AND CAN HEAR YOU TALKING ABOUT ALTERING HIS MIND AS IF IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE. No “I’m sorry, Mister, I hope you can understand” like
how do you even survive without a heart or a brain, Picquery? How the hell did you get your pick of all four Ilvermorny houses?
