Summary: Okay so I merged three requests together here (all requested by anons, but I’ve made some tweaks). Reader is a Thunderbird, and she’s been travelling with Newt for a while as his assistant. She’s much younger than him; she’s fresh out of Ilvermorny, and over time she can’t help but slowly succumb to his charm, even if she knows she has no chance with him. When she starts becoming jealous, she knows she has to get out and get away.
It had all begun in your sixth year at Ilvermorny. Your metamorphosis professor had become aware of your fascination for magical creatures upon catching you reading a book on them in his class, rather than listening to him. When he’d called for you to stay after class, you’d figured it would be to to give you material to copy as a punishment.
Instead, he’d asked you just how much you were interested by magical creatures. After you’d shown genuine interest, he’d commented how it was such a shame no classes on them were being taught at the school. He’d let you go, just like that, and you didn’t think about the incident until a month afterwards, when he’d asked you to stay after class again.
You were stunned when he’d told that he’d arranged for you to correspond with an expert on fantastic beasts, a certain Mr. Scamander he’d studied with in Hogwarts. He’d told you he wanted you to use the opportunity to figure out if the care of magical creatures could be a career path that interested you. Little did you know at the time, that was a turning point for your life.
I was gonna go with Typical Ships For Your Blog but: Doll/Hunter, Gascoigne/Djura, Gehrman/Hunter, Moon Presence/Several Lesser Amygdalas At Once, Arianna/Chapel Dweller
Doll/Hunter 4 = I could see why others like it, kinda cute I suppose.
You know how I feel about the Doll… I mean, I get it ? But. She’s a Doll. I don’t know. If it’s particularly well written, maybe, but I stand firm on my “friendly platonic relationships only” rock.
Gascoigne/Djura 7 = I like it, would read a fanfic with them if it was well written.
Ah yes, the old pairing that got supplanted by other ships. I still like them, but nowadays I feel less the appeal they had before. It’s a little like Eileen and Henryk, ships change. Djura’s ass is still the best tho.
Gehrman/Hunter 8 = I REALLY like this ship but it wouldn’t work out in canon.
NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNH I am a sinner. Bury me, Gehrman senpai.
Moon Presence/The Entire Oedon’s Basketball Team 10 = One True Pairing (OTP). I will fight to the death for this ship.
The real reason for using diplomacy. A Dream Gangbang in the old man’s backyard. Get dunked on, Flora.
Arianna/Chappie 9 = I REALLY like this ship and it should be/is canon!
I really, genuinely want them to be together. They have so much potential. Please let the night end and let them be fine. Can you imagine how cute it would be ? They can share chaste forehead kisses and hold hands and Arianna can sneak out into the Chapel when she’s not working and tell Chappie of the colors of the world he can’t see and he can tell her of the sweet whispers of the greater things she can’t hear. Let them be happy.
