Spin The Bottle

◘ ourbrokenwings asked:  Writing prompt 3 please.  “I can’t stop thinking about you.”

This is so clique, but I hope you like it! haha

Clutching your cup of tea in your hands you stared in to the warm flickering fire before you. Your dark apartment lit up from lightening and the sound of rain harshly hitting your windows. Thunder echoed in the distance but you hardly took notice. Your mind was occupied with one thing and one thing only. Newt Scamander.

Newt had been a close friend of yours for years and throughout all those years you had never seen him as anything more than a friend. Or, thats what you thought up until now. 

Lifting your hand you gently placed your fingers tips upon your lips. Your mind flashed back to yesterday and the moment everything in your world changed. It had started off as a friendly evening between friends. You, Newt, Theseus and a few other colleagues from work had gathered for an evening of drinks and socializing. However, one of the girls from The Auror Department suggested a good old fashioned game of spin the bottle to liven up the party. The moment the idea left her lips everyone in the room excitedly agreed to it (all except you and Newt). But you instantly felt an uneasy feeling as you were dragged to the living room to take a seat with everyone else. The girls giggled in anticipation; whispering amongst themselves who they hoped the bottle would point to when their turn came. You knew almost all of them hoped it would be Theseus. It was no secret that almost every girl working under the roof of The Ministry was smitten for the Auror and War Hero.

“I think I should get going…” Newt began to stand from the couch when Theseus, his older brother, grabbed his sleeve and pulled him back down.

“Oh come on, Newt! It’s all in good fun!”

Watching as he reluctantly sat back down you noticed him swallowing hard what you knew to be his nervousness. 

“Who wants to go first?” Betsy, the girl hosting the party asked smiling as one of the other girls offered to go first. As each person took their turn and kissed their chosen person you felt your hands become clammy and your cheeks becoming warm. Your turn was quickly approaching. 

Of all the men in the room you secretly hoped that bottle would point to Theseus. After all, like most of the girls in the room you always seemed to fancy him. You’d never tell Newt that, of course. 

“Alright, Y/L/N! Your turn!” 

The bottle was pushed towards you and everyone’s eyes were on you. You hesitated momentarily before reaching out and gently grasping the bottle. The cool sensation of the glass was refreshing seeing as your body was warm from the overwhelming sensation of nerves coursing through your body. 

With a swift spin of your wrist you spun the bottle and anxiously watched as it slowly came to a stop. When it did you trailed your eyes up to meet none other than your friend, Newt Scamander. 

Silence filled the room for a single moment before everyone erupted in excitment. 

“Go on!” Trudy, one of the ladies from the fourth floor department yelled, “Kiss!” She playfully nudged you before pushing you up and towards Newt.

Nothing in the world could explain how you felt in that very moment. All eyes were on you and the Magizooligist, eagerly waiting for you two to close the distant and kiss.

Kiss Newt? You thought. I’ve never even thought of such a thing…

Rising from the couch you slowly followed Newt to the side of the room where you both paused. Your eye’s met and you both found a nervous look on the other’s face. Friends. That’s all you were and that’s all you’d ever be. Or, that’s what you though up until now.

A light knock at your door brought you back from your thoughts and you turned, looking over in confusion. Who on earth could be knocking at your door at nine ‘o clock at night?

Placing your tea on your side table you wrapped your robe tightly around your body and made your ways towards the door. Slowly you grabbed the door knob and turned it, opening it only a crack to peek out. Your breath hitched in your through and you felt your heart skip a beat as your eyes fell upon the person you had been hoping to see since the night that seemed to change everything you had ever thought about him.

“I- I’m sorry to show up unannounced like this, but…” The wizard’s unruly, sandy brown hair was dripping from the rain. His coat was slightly drenched and you noticed his green eye’s held something intense in them. The way he was looking at you, it was nothing you had ever seen before. It was intoxicating… 

“Newt, I-” You assumed he’d shown up to explain what happened the night before. You knew he harbored no romantic feelings for you and you knew sooner or later you’d have to address it. But, you were surprised when he cut you off and the words you hardly expected slipped from his lips.

“I can’t stop thinking about you.”

Those were not the words you were expecting. You barely had a chance to answer and within seconds you found Newt’s lips on yours. His hands came to up your face and you could feel the chill of the night air fading his fingertips as he soaked up the warmth of your skin. 

Lifting your arms you snaked them around his neck pulling him closer. He gently slid a hand down your back, resting it just at the curve. His other hand stayed upon your cheek and he gently caressed your cheek bone as he momentarily broke his lips away only to bring them back and kiss you more passionately. 

When you both pushed away to replenish the air in your lungs your eyes met in a soft yet heated gaze. It was apparent to the both of you how badly you had wanted to kiss the other again. And now that you had you knew that things were going to be different now. It was terrifying, realizing you had feelings for your friend. What this meant and what it would do to your friendship was racing in your mind, causing fear in that, what if things were not to work out? Would you lose him? Merlin, you couldn’t handle that.

“Newt-”

“I know,” He replied. “I know this is…” He took in a deep breath, releasing it slowly as he continued, “Scary and confusing. But I can’t hold it back any longer. I love you. I’ve known it for a while now. I just always thought I could suppress the feelings. But when we kissed yesterday… I realized I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I want more, Y/N.” Searching your eyes, Newt anxiously waited for your response. He hoped you’d felt the same. But if you didn’t, he’d respect that. 

Smiling, you reached up to softly brush his wet locks from his eye’s and taking a moment to stare in to his beautiful green eyes before answering, “I do too.”


It’s 12am here so I tried to do a quick spell check… I apologize if it’s not perfect xx

Hello - Newt x Reader

Prompt: A little drabble! Soulmate AU where everyone is born with the first words their soulmate says to them tattooed on their wrist. Reader is completely fed up with her quest to find her soulmate, as the only hint she has is the incredibly vague black letters that have always been stamped across her wrist.

Warnings: Swearing, bullying, use of alcohol, harassment and unwanted advances

God, you hated your soulmate tattoo.

What sort of a soulmate tattoo was “hello”? You had detested it your entire life. What vague-ass higher power had decided when they gave you your tattoo to stop at “hello”? How would you know for sure when you met your soulmate? Couldn’t they have elaborated a little bit? Just a few more words? A proper sentence that you could actually recognize your soulmate with? But no, you were stuck with the most common greeting in the English language tattooed permanently into your skin. Hello. What absolute bullshit.

Every time someone greeted you with that simple phrase, your eyes would narrow, you would square your shoulders, and you would spit back the most distinct and unmistakable response you possibly could. You were not going to be the soulmate couple that had “hello” on both of your wrists. Your lucky, lucky soulmate probably had something ridiculous, like “Whatever you say,” or “Did you know that a hippopotamus’s sweat is red?” because you absolutely had to stand out, and you made sure that your replies to “hello” always did. There was no other way to be sure that anyone and everyone who said “hello” to you wasn’t your soulmate.

What a useless tattoo.

All throughout your school years at Ilvermorny, you were completely embarrassed to show people your tattoo. Unfortunately, when your classmates found out, they had great fun sending people you had never spoken to before up to say “hello” to you.

Your reaction was always hilarious, so they kept doing it. Your responses ranged from “Go fuck yourself,” to “Nice try guys, but I’ve already spoken with her before,” to straight up punching one student right in the jaw when he got a little too friendly with his hands as he delivered his “hello”.

You started to feel a little bad for your actual soulmate as your replies increased in hostility. They probably had a particularly colorful quote of yours. “Go to hell,” perhaps, or maybe “Who the fuck put you up to it this time?”

When you graduated, your defensive nature had thankfully melted a little. You had switched to solely offering people fun animal facts whenever they said “hello” to you, and it was far less stressful. “Seahorse mates hold each other’s tails so they don’t lose each other,” was a favorite of yours, as was “Cows have best friends.”

One evening, you were at a bar with your roommates Queenie and Tina, and you were in no mood for advances from anyone. You had decided to date, as many people with soulmates do, just to pass time while you waited for your soulmate to arrive, but your recent significant other had found their soulmate and left you in the dust. It was incredibly depressing, and you just really wanted a drink.

A man waltzed up to you, sliding into the chair beside you and offering a hand to shake. “Hello,” he said with a grin. You looked over at him, as annoyed as you were drunk, and reached out to flip his arm over and look at his wrist.

“Alright, let’s get this over with I’m not in the mood to think of a fun fact,” you grumbled, pulling back his sleeve to look at his wrist.

It wasn’t really with disappointment that you read the words “I’m so sorry I ran over your dog,” in black ink on his wrist, and you patted his hand drunkenly.

“Good luck with that one, buddy,” you slurred, getting to your feet and heading toward the door. He blinked after you, bewildered, and then returned to his drink.

Such was a usual encounter for you, and by the time Tina dragged a certain magizooligist into your home, you were sick and tired of your goddamn animal facts.

“Queenie, (y/n)!” Tina called out to you. You peeked your head around the corner where you were helping Queenie mend dresses, and you saw with a pang of confusion that Tina had brought two men along with her.

Queenie voiced your amazement, grinning and chirping “Teenie! You brought men home!”

You approached your friend, not bothering with the fact that you were clad in only a slip, and you blinked at her in disbelief. “Who are they?”

“This is a no-maj, and this is Mr. Scamander. He’s responsible for his injuries,” Tina said wearily, pointing her finger at the sweaty, overwhelmed man who offered you a disoriented half-smile before fixing his gaze back on Queenie, who giggled.

Mr. Scamander gave you a little wave. “Hello,” he said.

You let out a slow puff of air, your frustration resurfacing as your hand shot forward to grab his wrist. “Merlin’s Beard, just show me the goddamn tattoo,” you grumbled without thinking. You were in total shock when you slipped his sleeve back and found yourself face-to-face with your own words.

You looked up at him with wide eyes, and he looked just as startled. A hush fell over the room, and you felt your face grow hot. “Sorry about that,” you mumbled apologetically, unable to drop your gaze from his.

“That’s quite alright,” he said softly, his lips twitching upward in a small smile. “It’s quite the conversation piece,” he teased, and you found yourself chuckling.

“You had better be worth all the trouble my ridiculous tattoo has caused,” you teased back. The other three people in the room were watching the two of you, completely taken aback.

“I think for the most part people usually find me to be more trouble than I am worth,” he confessed, his eyes sparkling.

You dropped his hand at last, your face red and your heart pounding with embarrassment. “We’ll see about that,”

You sit at the dinner table with no goal but to enjoy the meal as Queenie flutters around, stirring pots with both her hands and magic. She already denied your offer to help, so you decided to pass the time talking with her. Newt had disappeared somewhere, probably inside the case, and you had immediately decided against a walk when you glanced at the growing grey clouds outside.

Inside is warm and cozy. You’re wearing your favorite gold sweater. The heat from the cooking keeps out the bite of chilly air rattling the windows. Queenie is humming a jazzy tune you’ve never heard before, only stopping to giggle at Jacob’s red face when he bumps into her.

“I’m sorry.” He says as his face turns a shade of tomato red.

“It ain’t a problem, honey.” Queenie doesn’t break a stride. “What is it you’re making?”

You’re pretty sure she asks it for your sake, given the sounds your stomach has been making since he stuck the pastries he’d spent all afternoon making into the oven, and the smell had spread throughout the small room.

“Special strawberry turnovers.”

“What makes them so special?” You ask, raising your voice over the bubbling, clanking, and simmering sounds filling the area.

“They’re my momma’s recipe. Filled with love and one other special ingredient.”

Queenie swings by Jacob with the pot of stew in hand. “I don’t think nutmeg is very secret, honey.” Five bowls float down into their places around the table as Queenie sets the stew in the center.

“I never said –“

“You don’t have to.” She smiles at him and lifts the pot’s lid.

The rich smell wafts over the table to you. You breathe it in, closing your eyes to revel in the memories it brings back. Your mother always made beef stew with potatoes and chopped carrots for special occasions. Mentally thanking Queenie, you slide your chair back and step toward the pot, scooping the stew in until it nearly sloshes out the side. Queenie merely smiles at you and twirls around Jacob.

She resumes her humming. The turnovers mix with the scent of the stew and your mouth waters. The windows shake, generating a beat that Queenie forms her music around. Jacob’s laugh fills the warm room, and your entire world, for once, is at peace.

Your content joy only expands when Newt walks in, messy auburn hair plastered against his forehead from the rain sprinkling outside, giant, beautiful smile stretched across his face. You glance at your stew, fighting the huge smile trying to break upon your face. Queenie kicks you under the table and, when you meet her gaze, lifts an eyebrow. You give a quick nod before staring back down at your food, trying to resist beaming.

The fight becomes much easier when Tina walks in behind Newt, also covered in water, smile upon her face.
