Im also drunk, and bored af. S im pulling something from my idea page and im going to roll with it for now.
Newt is the last surviving member of the Scamander family. He useshis parents vast fortune to purchase animals in black market deals and auctions. Its not legal at all, but the trade of animals is illegal. He buys them so that he can nurse them back to health, study them for his book, and then release them back into thier natural habitats. He just has a fuck ton of money, and thats all he wants to do.
So he goes to New York to participate in this auction involving what rumors tell him is a thunderbird. But when he arrives in New York he is arrested because he uses magic in front of Jacob nd all that. Then Percival (The real one, grindelwald didnt take overhis body in this one) get wind they have scamander in custody and Graves knows hes involved in that and they talk, and he offers scamander a deal. He will let Newt go and his creatures no charge, if he gets him into the auction. So newt agrees, and they end up working together. There will be lots of UST and also they like to head butt on things, because Percy is like RULES and Newt is like, MORALITY and Percival agrees that the animals need help, and he knows that the laws are lacking when it comes to creatures, but they are still rules, how many do you want me to bend for you because this is like against what i know dammit newt i think i love you. Hes so fiery and passionate about his creatures.
and then LOVE obv. Im going to go to bed now probably.
All i want from life is to know how mandy patinkin reacted to finding out that the crew had finally enough of his bull and had gideon murdered and also how he reacted when he found out they kind of made light of it by having jj and garcia have an ice cream party almost smack bang on the blood pool
