So this is the doodle I’ve been working on for a couple days. I was debating adding more color but I didn’t like how it was turning out so I just went back to flats. Sort of wondering if I should have done more detailing on the eyes though. >3>;;
Anyway, I sort of imagine this taking place while they were watching a troll romance movie.
People are seriously whining about the lack of “PoC” in Beauty and the Beast 2017 and it’s ridiculous.
That is a DIVERSE cast. A couple of interracial relationships (or as I like to call them, relationships), the religious chap who runs the chapel where Belle borrows books from (such a great character), quite a few other villagers…
Be honest. Any white people at all would be offensive to some of you Tumblrites. Never mind that the story is set in ye olde France.
And then you have people getting upset that it’s Lefou who is the gay character and not Cogsworth and Lumière.
Because GOD FORBID two men have a strong platonic friendship. If two men are friendly then it MUST be because they like dick.
These of course are the same people who complain when a male/female romance is pushed in movies and say: “Why can’t men and women just be friends!?”
Thus the trend to have Disney Princess movies with no romantic interest for the lead (which these people all celebrate because most likely they’re all basement dwellers who can’t get a date of their own).
That feather duster that Lumière has ALWAYS been romantically linked to throughout the years? Well fuck that, right?
And I know the moral outrage people will whip themselves into over this post. It’s all so predictable.
Disney cannot win with you people. If they have a great cast with lots of diversity it’s never enough diversity. If they have a LGBT character it’s the “wrong” character.
Even when these historically traditional companies are doing the right thing and dipping their toes in the water (they are businesses after all and money and retaining their audience is important) you’re still pitching a fit because it’s not a 2hr LGBT movie straightaway.
People are actually moaning because Josh Gad, a straight man, played a LGBT character.
Do you hear heterosexuals moaning that ladies man Gaston was played by Luke Evans, a homosexual man?
Am I the only one who's so sad that Naruto ended like a cheap romance movie? Is this even shinobi's world anymore? Is this even Naruto I watched for so long? I'm so done...
you’re definitely not the only one, anon. 😔 nope, this isn’t ‘naruto’ anymore – it’s ‘hinata’: a pierrot shojo production of retcons, fillers, fan-service and canon-contradicted bias… i think we’re all done; it’s just heartbreaking and exhausting at this point. this ain’t the series we loved.
For this story,
just pretend Porpentina is just Newt’s friend. If you don’t like that idea, don’t
read it! I’m simply trying to give people some fluff for their hungry souls!
Also just pretend Jacob never lost his memory of what happened in the movie.
Lastly, sorry if I’ve posted like a lot today. I don’t care. I love Fantastic
Beasts and I’m kidding, I’m not even remotely sorry.
Warnings: so much fluff, you might die. Read with caution. And maybe heart it, if you like it.
if Newt gets jealous?” Porpentina said cutting straight to the chase.
You paused from
drinking your coffee to look at your friend. “What do you mean?” You asked
It was just you,
Porpentina, Jacob, and Queenie. Newt said he was too busy to attend coffee, but
they all knew he was highly introverted and probably needed some down time with
his beasts. Whenever Newt wasn’t around, for some reason, the conversation was
always on that strange nerdy, but adorable man.
“I was just
curious. I heard Hufflepuffs are really loyal and patient. Sweet people, if you
get what I’m saying,” Porpentina explained calmly stirring her tea.
everyone loves,” Jacob concluded.
You kept your
skeptical look on Porpentina. Where was she going with this? They all knew you
had a major crush on Newt. It was kind of hard not to notice. You were a bumbling idiot around Newt! It didn’t help that Queenie kept reading your
mind, and would always wink and smile at you. “Porpentina. What are you
thinking…?” You said bluntly.
shrugged. “We’re having this bet,” she started slowly. “Jacob doesn’t think
Newt could get jealous, but I’m not so sure.”
blankly at Jacob, who refused to look at you, and then back at Porpentina. “Seriously.
What’s going on?”
out in her soft voice, “We want to make Newt jealous.”
The heck. Make
Newt jealous?! That sounded like a recipe for disaster! “Are you serious?!” You
“Look it’s not
like he’s not a man, he has feelings and desires too, I’m sure!” Porpentina
Where was she going with this…? “Hold on—you aren’t… no, don’t you even dare,
Porpentina…” you said in an almost strained voice.
refused to look at you and continued, “You’re mad for him, honey. It doesn’t
take Queenie’s mind reading to know it. And we’re curious to know how Newt
feels about you.”
“It will be fun!”
Queenie added on, smiling sweetly at you.
mimicked. “This is a horrible idea! Please no!”
“We already made
the bet,” Jacob chided, giving you a pleading look. “Prove that I’m right and
he can’t ever get jealous. C’mon, help a guy out, Y/N.”
flustered, looking at everyone. It was true, you were curious to know how Newt felt
about you, but this was a little extreme. “How… hypothetically, suppose are we
going to make him jealous?”
you and Jacob are fond of each other,” Porpentina said absentmindedly.
You looked at
Queenie. “Ummmm… I don’t think that’s a very good idea.”
what I thought…” Jacob said, also looking at Queenie.
But Queenie was
beaming. She laughed musically, “Don’t be silly, goobers! I came up with the
“Yeah but still,”
Jacob mumbled under his breath. “The only lady I really want is you.”
Queenie gave him
a loving look and patted his hands. “I know, love. But do it for me. I know you
have feelings for me, help Y/N out for me!”
fine!” You shouted loudly, your face hot red. “When do we start?”
closely to Jacob, giggling like an idiot. But the giggling was a horrible
nervous giggle of apprehensiveness. This was so stupid.
The plan was
really simple. You were pretending to like Jacob, and to make things a little
more realistic, hopefully, Jacob was pretending not to be interested in you.
Basically, now that you thought about it, making you look like a total horrible
slutty adultery woman.
All of you were
taking a walk in Central Park, talking about beasts and what other creatures
they might find. However, Newt was strangely quiet, and only talked once the
subject about beasts came up.
“Oh, dear, my
shoe fell off,” you stated in a matter-o-fact tone. You clutched onto Jacob’s
arm, hoping on one foot.

but smiled sweetly at you once he caught you looking at him. You felt a wave of
complete guilt wash over you, as Newt just looked at you, smiling like nothing
Jacob,” You said, more in a bedraggled tone than a flirty up beat way. You
stopped giggling, but you didn’t walk away from Jacob, even though you wanted
nothing more than to rush over and hug Newt.
There were a few
more attempts later that day, but all of them failed. No matter what happened,
Newt seemed calm and always smiled at you. But there was a sort of hollowness
in his smile. More confused and less happy. You couldn’t really read his
expression, but you knew something was wrong. He probably hated you. For
flirting with Jacob, when Queenie wasn’t around. How horrible.
The more and
more you flirted with Jacob, the more you hated yourself. You wanted to take up
your wand and simply blow off your head. You couldn’t keep doing this to Newt!
You were helping
Jacob feed some of Newt’s pets, giggling and talking quietly with Jacob. Jacob
was nearly as worn out as you were. He was sick of this all, but Queenie kept
Jacob said he
was going up to check on Queenie who was cooking dinner for them. “I’ll be
right up, Jacob!” You giggled. It sounded like a sickly giggle though.
Newt had been
silently watching the two of you, while petting a salamander. You were alone
with Newt now. “Y/N,” Newt said softly.
You turned to
Newt, refusing to look at him. “Yes?”
“Why… are you…”
he stumbled over his words, frowning hard. “I don’t understand.”
You began to
walk to the ladder which took them back to the real world. “What do you not
understand?” You asked slowly, not wanting to know the answer.
with his fingers nervously, figuring out how to explain it to you. He followed
you and said, “Well… it’s just that… what you’re doing, I don’t think it’s
your eyes shut. How were you going to explain this? You hastily made your way
to the ladder. Once you were back into the apartment, Porpentina could help you
explain it all. “It’s not what you think it is.”
exactly what I think it is,” Newt said sharply and boldly. “It needs to stop.”
You were almost
hurt by the way he said it. Newt was always soft spoken, and sweet. But he
sounded stern and almost angry. You walked a little faster. “Please, Newt, you
don’t really understand,” You whimpered.
You began to
climb the ladder, but Newt tried to gently grab at your hand. “Y/N,” He said
Newt grasping at
your hand, made your face blush and your mind went something along the lines of
JFDKLAFJDSIOP NEWT IS HOLD MY HAND HFDSKLAFJALJFKL. With that sudden
realization, stupid you lost your balance and fell off the ladder. You let out
a high pitch squeal and you fell onto Newt, sending the both of you onto the

as you fell on top of him.
Tangled up, you
hastily apologized, completely erratic and nervous. “I’m so sorry, Newt! I didn’t
mean to fall on you!” You sat up, still sitting on Newt and gazed down on him
with an embarrassed look.
Newt looked back
up at you and gently put his hand on your face. “Y/N… what’s going on?”

skipped a beat. He called you sweetheart. You frantically wiped away the tears.
“It’s just that… I didn’t want to make you jealous, but it was Porpentina’s
Newt blinked a
few times, then he raised an eyebrow. “What do you mean, make me jealous?”
Uh oh. You said
it. You hiccupped and said, “Uhh… why don’t we just go up and eat dinner?”
What stopped you
from getting up off Newt was Newt gently pressing his lips against your
forehead. Then he moved his lips to your mouth, kissing innocently. He then
breathed quietly, “Is that was you wanted?”
jealous or the kiss?” You murmured quietly. His thumb was softly stroking your
cheek, and your heart felt like it was going to explode. AKA heart attack and
you would just die. Embarrassing and depressing if that happened.
concluded, rubbing his forehead against yours.

all you could say. Sounded stupid, but you were basically in a trance, so who
heads poked out from the suitcase opening. “That’ll be six weeks of pastries, Jacob,”
Porpentina mused, looking down at you and Newt. You were still sitting on Newt,
and looked like you weren’t in a hurry to get up.
Both you and
Newt looked up at them. Newt laughed, but you were less forgiving than Newt.
You glared up at them, and barked, “Seriously, you guys?” Then you turned to
Newt. “Were you really jealous, Newt?”
Newt snaked his
hand around your neck and said, “I was absolutely dotty for you.” He pulled you
in for another kiss.
and said, “Look at them, Jacob! Aren’t you happy for them?”
thought burst into your mind. You were a little bit angry. Maybe more than a
little bit. “Queenie…” you said in a low growl.
“Yes, dear?” she
asked curiously, smiling down at you.
You glared at
her. “Did you know Newt fancied me already?”
innocently. “This was a bet to see if Newt got jealous, pie-dear. You never
asked me if Newt fancied you.”
OMG I need more Newt fanfics in my life! Can you do what your first date with him would include?
Him shyly asking if you wanted to get dinner with him. And
you ask if it’s a date, and he hesitates, but says (avoiding eye contact) yes.
You wearing a huge scarf that almost swamps you and he
thinks it’s adorable.
Him picking you up from your apartment and the two of you
walk to the restaurant.
The two of you talking softly about work, and Newt’s
admiring how you look out of the corners of his eyes.
Him offering you the seat, all gentlemanly like, at the
Newt talks about his passion for animals, and you just sit
there, smiling shyly at how adorable your date is.
Once you get your foods and are eating, you ask him if his
food is good. He lifts his fork up and says “Open wide?” Blushing, you try his
food and offer him some of yours.
Him asking you if you’d like dessert or not. As it turns out,
both of you couldn’t really afford two of the fancy cakes, so you share one.
He lets you eat the last bite of cake, off his fork.
The two of you talk and take a stroll under the bright lights of New
You get a little chilly and scoot closer to Newt. He asks if
you’re cold and before you can answer, swishes off his coat and gives it to
you. And on top of that, he wraps his scarf around your neck, over the other
You notice his scarf smells slightly musky, like hay and
Newt asks if he can hold your hand, and you say yes. He takes
your hand and slips it into his pocket, keeping both of your hands warm.
Once you’re done with your walk, you make your way back to
your house, still talking about animals.
Him sweetly asking if he can kiss you.
You standing on tip toes to kiss him.
He wraps his arms around your waist, and you gently pet his
hair. His lips are warm and yours are cool.
The date ends with him asking if he can show you his animals
tomorrow, and you say yes.
Newt watches you walk up to your apartment, smiling a bashful
smile and rubbing his neck, thinking, “I think that first day went rather well indeed.”
