Red, The Blood of Angry Men
Hi I was wondering if you could write a fic of newt x reader? The reader is a metamorphagi and show her emotions through her hair. So when she sees newt for the first time her hair changes from her normal black hair to a deep red because she finds newt to be attractive. And newt finds it cute idk somewhere along the line lol
I love color theory and this was so fun to write!
“Y/N! WAKE UP, IT’S TIME FOR BREAKFAST!” Your best friend yelled in your ear.
“Mm, 5 more minutes, please” you plead, rolling over in your bed.
“You’re going to miss care of magical creatures,” they singsong in your ears. You jolt awake
“I’M READY!” Your friend laughs as you tumble out of bed.
You quickly run to the bathroom and fix yourself up in the mirror, your hair is a bright orange which shocked you a little. You walk out of the bathroom and your friend bursts out in laughter.
“What’s so funny?” you ask,
“Y-You l-look l-l-like an o-orange” they laugh out.
You roll your eyes and drag them to the great hall. On the way, your hair turns back to black, your normal hair color. You silently breathe a sigh of relief. You admit being a metamorphagi is fun at times, like pranking people, but it’s a big hassle when your emotions are on display for everyone to see.
Luckily, not everyone knows what each color means, so most don’t actually know what each emotion means. You ate breakfast quickly, wanting to get ready for Care of Magical Creatures. It was your third year which meant you were allowed to take it. You absolutely adored creatures, the tips of your hair turned a gold yellow just thinking about it.
You ran back to your dorm and grabbed all the books you need and a few extra, just in case. You made your way to class early and waited outside the classroom, eager to start class. Your standing peacefully when you hear a loud crash and some running.
“GET BACK HERE, YOU PILFERING PEST!”
That voice was definitely not the professor, it sounded like a young boy instead. Your hair started turning a little purple out of curiosity. You opened the door and saw a brown-haired boy chasing around a niffler. The niffler saw the open door and scurried towards you, you quickly scooped it up and held it in your arms.
“Now, what do you think you’re doing?” you question the niffler with a playful tone.
The boy stops in front if you, his hair was floppy and messy, his tie was undone and around his neck, he had his wand behind his ear and his white button up was ruffled and his sleeves were rolled up to his elbows. You stared at the boy, admiring his freckles and the dirt on his nose.
“Um, excuse me, but you’re holding my niffler,” the voice snapped you out of your thoughts.
How could you forget about the little troublemaker in your arms? You looked down and saw it all cuddled up in your arms. “Oh right, so sorry,” you apologize, handing the niffler to the boy, the niffler looks back at you with a sad expression.
You giggle and pull a coin from your pocket and hand it to the niffler who happily stuffed it in its pouch. When you looked up the boy was staring at you wide-eyed.
“Um, can I help you?” you ask, feeling a little self-conscious.
“Oh sorry, forgive my staring but, your hair just turned from black to red,” he said with a hint of shock in his voice.
Great, this cute boy thinks I’m weird because my hair changes color, stupid me being a metamorphagi.
“I don’t think you’re weird, I think you’re amazing,” he whispers in awe.
Oops, you thought out loud again, your face turned red to match your hair.
“So, um, what are you doing in here without professor supervision?” you question, trying to change the subject.
“Oh, I come here a lot, you know, I annoy people,” his head turned away for a split second, “And animals are much better comfort in my opinion.” he turned and went back to put the niffler in its burrow.
“By the way, how did you know that the Niffler liked shiny objects?” He asked while walking to the bowtruckles.
“I love magical creatures, I’ve always found them interesting. I was so overjoyed when I got enrolled in this class that I came early,” you reply excitedly.
He smiles at you, noticing your hair growing golden tips on your still deep red hair.
“What’s your name? I’m Newt Scamander, ” he says as he holds out his hand.
“I’m Y/n L/n, pleasure to meet you Newt,” you take his hand and shake it, a little longer than needed in all honesty. People started to walk in and take their seats including your friends.
“Well, I better let you go off with your friends. Nice meeting you, Y/n!” he said, turning back to the bowtruckles. You turned around and saw your friends deep in conversation. You sigh and turned back to Newt,
“Actually, I think I’d rather stay with you, if you don’t mind?” you ask. His back was turned but you could see he was grinning.
“Of course I don’t mind, I’d love to be your partner,” he winced a little after speaking but it only made you giggle.
“By the way, I did some research on Metamorphagi a couple of years ago. I was in the library and found a book on special abilites some wizards have. If I remember correctly, bright red means anger and dark read means um love. Am I correct?” He sheepishly asks. You start to blush and fidget with your hands before answering him.
“Yes, that could be correct,” you confess, wanting to disappear at that moment.
“Well, I think red is a lovely color on you, Y/n,” he gives you a smile that makes your hair turn red again.
“Damn you, Scamander” you playfully roll your eyes and walk to a table.
You notice the tips of your hair turning gold again. Let’s just say you were very excited for this class.
