Prompt: Even in war, Newt and reader tries to stretch their bond, with a forever promise. (Based on the song Perfect by Ed Sheeran)
Disclaimer: Lots of fluff, mentions war.
In the middle of a war, two hearts trying to survive.
I found a love for me
He never understood humans beings, been more fond to creatures, but you were just… Different, unique, he could understand you, and you could understand him.
You two had something especial, a feeling that was stronger than a bullet, as soft as a petal, and passionate like an adventure.
You were in love.
Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Running out into the rain, mud getting under his shoes, but it didn’t matter as long as he was with you, holding his breath, you keep running, trying to keep envolved in the sensation of your hands holding, trying to hide from the catastrophic outside. Because war was cruel and dark, and he needed time to remember how peace was.
Soon you were in a little, slightly comfortable cabin, in the outskirts of the battlefield.
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
He saw you smile as you hugged him, and he couldn’t help but laugh cupping your cheeks with his hands, happiness running through his veins, you were amazing because even in the sad and destructive setting of the conflict, you were strong enough to keep your light, to see him the same lovely way, to warm him up with your hugs, to kiss him like it was meant forever, and to smile with the innocence of a child.
Newt’s proud to call you, his.
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
He was seeing you directly at your eyes, and you knew how much that meant.
Caressing your hair as he kissed your forehead, Newt start to think about your past. Being kids since childhood, he never thought one day you would end up together, a good part of his life he believed that Leta was the one, guess he wasn’t seeing what he really had in front of his eyes.
‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
Truth was, it wasn’t that he didn’t loved you, he did, since the first day he saw you watching from afar at the Hippogriff in his yard. But he was too young, he always thought about you as his best friend, the one who would be always with him, it took him a time to realized how did he love you.
I will not give you up this time
Maybe in the past, he hurt you without intention, with his doubts and insecurities, but no more, today he was sure, today he was promising you a forever.
“We’re crazy” Newt whispered with a lopsided grin as he take out the rings from his pocket.
“No, we’re just in love” you laughed winking at him.
“(Y/N)… We’re getting married” his smile was the most big and beautiful you have seen.
“We’re getting married” you reassured kissing his knuckles.
He hold you closer “Oh, love, I want to make you a lot of promises… I will care of you like a Demiguise, and treasure your shiny beautiful heart like a Niffler” Newt flushed slightly, avoiding your sight for a second “I’ll be passionate as an E-Erumpent” you giggled caressing his arms “I want to protect you as mine, like a Bowtruckle, and I’ll trust you as a Thunderbird. But most important, I’ll love you with all my soul, my heart, my everything, forever.”
“Newt…” just a single tear roll on your cheek, his words really had melted your heart.
“M-Maybe those weren’t the most romantic words or the most appropriated, but-”
You cut him off “Those words were the most amazing and beautiful vows I’ve ever heard, and I know how much they meant, I truly loved them Newt, I truly love you, every single detail of you.”
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you’re holding mine
You leaned forward to kiss him as you exchanged rings, formalizing your promise with the moonlight as a witness.
Soft sweet kisses you shared, like delicate flowing bubbles flying in the air, so natural, so innocent, so pure.
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
You two were humming the same song, the one you danced for the first time together at the Yule Ball, as your feet move slightly from one side to another, your skin heating at the touch of his, with your fingers brushing his hair, and Newt’s hands stroking your low back upside down.
The rest of the world disappeared, the fights, the screams, the memories, everything, it was just him and you, inside the bubble of love.
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight
It didn’t matter to Newt if you didn’t wear makeup, or the fact that your hair was wet and messy. You were happy, smiling, looking at his eyes with love, and for him that was the most beautiful look.
Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
Newt blushed at the memory of Theseus’ teasing.
“So, when is (Y/N) moving into our house Newtie? Momma loves her!” He said smiling “Oh, but if she moves in, you wouldn’t snog her in peace!” Theseus bursted into laughs.
“What are you thinking about, Mr. Scamander?” You said playfully.
“In how much I want to snog you right know” he merely answered without thinking.
“Newt!” You giggled trying to hide a flushed smile.
Newt’s face was red “N-No I didn’t, I mean I wasn’t, erm, I…” he stutter ashamed but his mood relaxed when you put your lips on his.
Newt smiled in between kisses, strengthening his grip on your hips. You never make fun of him, always kind with him and his quirky characteristics, so patient and lovely with his love for creatures, so perfect.
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own
You weren’t just the woman he loved, his best friend, but the woman he wanted a home with, to watch your child running through the garden, teaching them about creatures and seeing them grow up, until you had grandsons to tell stories of his adventures while sitting in a rocking chair holding hands in the porch.“
When the war ends, Newt dreams about taking you to adventures, to live, to save creatures, him and you, loving each other in every part of the world.
We are still kids, but we’re so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we’ll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I’ll be your man
I see my future in your eyes
You’ve choose him, even if you could have had every man you wanted, you chose him. Even if he wasn’t the most rich or powerful, he could be clumsy and cause a lot of trouble sometimes and he wasn’t the best at social interaction, but you loved him anyways.
And Newt was convinced to be the best for you, to cherish you as a queen and work hard, so one day he could give you the lived he thought you deserved, although the only lived you wanted was a one where he was with you, kissing and loving each other, being man and wife.
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight
Maybe she wasn’t in a glamorous fancy wedding dress.
Or he didn’t wear tuxedo sweet.
You wear your last clean nurse uniform, Newt was in his dirty battle clothes, but you were immersed in each other, he was admiring you as the most beautiful creature he would ever seen, with the moonlight in your face, your messy hair, the way your face flushed as you see him, simply astonishing.
He felt so lucky, having you between his arms, dancing, your lips on his, what on earth did he do to deserve you? To deserve your love?
"I’m so blessed to have you, Mrs. Scamander”
“It’s my pleasure to be with you, Mr. Scamander”
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect, I don’t deserve this
You look perfect tonight
In the middle of a war, two hearts trying to survive.
Loving in each other, in their own world.
They found the peace, in the middle of a storm.
A/N: It’s short I’m sorry 3 it’s more like a drabble (a li'l bit longer that a drabble actually) but it was more about feelings than an actually plot, although the backstory is kinda interesting, I may write an imagine about it (tell me what you think ;))
Also I’m considering about opening requests (I already got one actually (? JAJAJA) but I don’t know ('cause of collage) I’ll see. Also, I’m sorry for the grammatical mistakes
Hope you enjoyed it!
