I'm not the one who asked, but the headcanons for young Graves are sweet! It's just, I wonder wether you are aware that Graves went MIA like a week before the movie and simply prefer the longer version? I'm really curious because there are many works with a lengthy abduction and I maybe a handful of canonical week. Btw, your blog and writing are awesome!
I actually wasn’t aware that it’s canon that Graves was only gone for a week. I didn’t notice that detail in the movie (and if its info from pottermore, I definitely wouldn’t catch it because I hardly ever research things there). Truly I feel they dropped the ball, not developing a lot of this in the movie proper… One week canon is kind of a bummer, because that means he was probably just an asshole, since no one noticed…. I still maintain, even with one week, that maybe no one noticed the behavioral changes because they assume its stress and the aurors themselves are also stressed.
I JUST WANT HIM TO BE A GOOD MAN, OKAY? XDDD
BUT I personally just enjoy writing him with a lengthy abduction. I’ve done both, I think (I thiiiink) - but my personal fav is lengthy.
And thank you so much, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the headcanons and fics and such here on the blog! It truly means a lot! ღゝ◡╹)ノ♡
