It’s Valentines day and I’m forever alone so I’m writing super fluffy things and one heartbreak because I'm evil
Another owl lands in front of you holding a red envelope. You offer the bird a treat and take the envelope. This was the 5th one today, apparently, boys thought you were quite a catch and kept sending you Valentine’s day cards. You only had sights on one boy, who was head over heals for another girl. You could sense the cliche.
“Oo! Another one huh y/n” your friend teases.
You roll your eyes and tear open the envelope. A smoke unicorn hops out of the envelope and prances around. You stare in awe as it leaves a trail of pink smoke. It stops in front of you and bows before disappears in a puff of smoke and leaves a small card that smells of Cinnamon. You pick up the card and look at it. The border is a shimmery gold and the writing is messy but a cute messy
Your heart is so golden that a Niffler would paw at your heart
Seeing you makes my stomach flutter like I have a million Billywigs inside
I get so nervous around you I wish I could turn invisible like a Demiguise
You’re more magnificent than a Thunderbird
I would be honored if you would meet me outside of Honeydukes this Valentines.
“Who was that from?” you friend asks. You look all over the card but couldn't find a name.
“I don’t know” you reply.
Names crossed your mind as you were trying to figure out who sent the letter. A certain animal lover with floppy hair and shy demeanor crossed your mind but you shook it away, he probably liked someone else.
“Are you going to go?” They ask.
“Yeah, I think I will.”
You spent the rest of the day wondering who sent the letter to you. You walked into potions and sit down.
“Okay class, since its almost valentines day. I thought we could brew Amortentia” your professor says.
“Does anyone know what Amortentia is?” your professor asks.
A boy in the back raises his hand, “Amortentia is the world’s strongest love potion. It smells like what the person loves most”.
“Fantastic, 10 points to Hufflepuff” they say. They write down the intricate steps on the board.
“Once you successfully finish and I check it off, you will write down what you smell. It will be confidential, Please begin.”
You turn to your partner and see they’re deep in conversation with a boy. You roll your eyes and get up to grab the ingredients. You grabbed some rose thorns and powdered moonstone. You were searching for peppermint when someone tapped your shoulder. You turned and see Newt Scamander standing behind you holding out the last ingredient you needed.
“Um, Thanks Newt” you say taking the leaves.
“No problem, I saw you were looking for some and I had extra so” he explains.
You both awkwardly stand in silence before Newt breaks the silence.
“I better get back to my potion. You know, before my partner blows up the cauldron. Again.” Newt says.
You giggle at the memory of his partner blowing his eyebrows off. Newt turns and his eyes widen.
“WAIT DARVIN THATS THE WRONG INGREDIENT!” Newt yells as he scrambles over to Darvin before he could ruin the potion.
A small smile appears as you watch Newt focus on his potion. He looked up at you and you averted your eyes. You walked back to your desk and started the potion.
“Well done Y/n, Now, write down what you smell and turn it in.” Your professor tells you.
You nod and pull out some parchment. You leaned over your potion. Cinnamon, lavender, freshly cut wood and something else you couldn’t figure out. You wrote down what you smelled and stood up to turn in your potion and your paper.
“Ah Y/n, I need your help. Can you please organize these papers by alphabetical order, please” Your professor orders.
You pick up the papers and go through them. You tried only looking at the names but when you came across Newt’s, it was hard to resist. You looked down and saw what he wrote.
“Rain, freshly baked cookies, and perfume” you murmur quietly.
Perfume? Your heart sank a little, you didn’t really wear perfume. Only on special occasions so he must have smelled someone else’s perfume. You finished organizing the papers and left.
You flopped down on your bed and pulled out the little card you got this morning. You smiled at the words. You decided to meet up with this mystery man tomorrow. You fell asleep with the card still clutched in your hand. You failed to notice that the handwriting on the card was similar to writing you saw earlier today.
You stood outside honeydukes fidgeting with your hands. They didn’t give you a specific time, what if we miss each other? What if this was all a joke? Maybe one of your friends was messing with you. You felt the stares from couples walking past you. You felt awkward so you went into Honeydukes.
You walked around and hid in a corner. You felt silly waiting for someone you weren’t even sure was coming. You bought some chocolate frogs so the lady wouldn’t think it was weird you were just standing in the store for so long. You walked out and started heading back to the castle.
“Y/N! Wait!” You turned around and saw a very flustered Newt.
“I’m sorry I was late, er well, I’m sorry I didn’t put a time on the card. You see i was so focused on actually getting myself to write a letter to you that I forgot to put important details” Newt explains in a rushed voice.
“You sent the note? With the smoke unicorn?” you ask.
You were skeptical, there is no way your crush could have sent that. Way to cliche.
“Why yes I did. D-did you not like?” He asks, his face falling a bit.
“No No, I adored it! It was so beautiful. How did you manage to conjure something like that?” you ask.
Newt smiles and pulls out his wand. His face changes to his look of concentration and he drew a small unicorn. It pranced around and disappeared.
“I asked Flintwood to teach me. I saw all those other guys ask you and I felt like I needed to do something special” Newt admits.
“You didn’t have to do anything special Newt. You are one of the most amazing people I have ever met. I mean your so smart and cute and a little awkward and you know so much about animals,” you say. You notice Newt staring at you.
“Sorry, that must sound really creepy” you say looking at the ground.
“Do you really think that about me?” Newt asks, almost afraid of your answer.
You look back up and nod your head, “Of course I do. You are something extraordinary Mr. Scamander” you say.
“Oh! I almost forgot!” Newt exclaims.
He sticks his wand in his mouth and rummages through his bag. He tried speaking but it was muffled by the wand. He pulls out a little journal with a bow on it.
“Mrf-hrfe bhm” Newt tries to say.
“Newt, wand” you remind him. He takes his wand out of his mouth and sticks it behind his ear.
“I was trying to say, I would have wrapped it but I learned I am quite horrible at wrapping” He explains. you open up the journal and notice there are moving creatures on every page.
“Newt this is amazing. I didn’t get you anything. Oh I feel horrible now” you say.
“It’s okay, I wanted to get you it and you don’t have to get me anything” Newt says.
“Well thank you so much Newt” you lean and kiss his cheek. His blush returns and he starts fidgeting again.
“I have some chocolate frogs, here” you say handing him one.
“Thank you y/n, I’ll cherish it forever” Newt jokes
“Care to accompany me to the three broomsticks?” you ask.
“I would love to” he replies. You grab his hand and intertwine your fingers.
“Would you ever like to be on a chocolate frog?” you ask randomly.
“It would certainly be an achievement, but what could i do that would deem me worthy of such a thing?” Newt asks.
“Oh, i’m sure you’ll do something amazing Newt,” you say “Maybe it will have to do with Beasts” you suggest.
“Ah yes, I see it now, Small boy on chocolate frog card for helping magical creatures” Newt says rather dramatically. You let out a laugh that makes Newt smile more.
“That perfume, you’ve worn it before right?” Newt asks.
“I wore it the first day of school, I think” you reply, “Why?”
“No reason” Newt says.
You shrug it off and put your head on Newts shoulder. You breathed in his coat smell and almost tripped when you recognized the smell. You smiled to yourself and held Newts hand a little tighter.
FLUFFITY FLUFF FLUFF FLUFF OMFG. I am. *sings off key* Forever alone. Happy Valentines y’all Hope someone treats you like Newt Scamander would.
