 Prompt requested by anon : 3. Ice skating

  “Are you sure you don’t want to do this next week? When it’s, err, warmer?” Your boyfriend inquired as he trailed behind you, leaving footprints in the fresh layer of snow. Newt’s scarf hung loosely on his shoulders, and his cheeks and nose had a red tint to them. It certainly didn’t help that the thin coat he wore wasn’t doing a very good job of fending off the cold. You, however, had prepared for the chilly weather and dressed yourself in a bulky fur coat; The fur being fake, of course.

 “That’s what you said last week, you’re not getting out of this again.” Your destination came into view, and the childish grin you had been wearing grew even wider. You only hoped Newt would share your enthusiasm.

 You came to a sudden stop, taking in the beauty of the frozen pond before you. Couples and families skated around, their blissful faces mirroring your own. “We’re here,” You turned to see Newt’s reaction, but instead saw him a few feet behind you rubbing his hands for warmth.

 The poor man was shivering. He hadn’t even remembered to wear gloves. “Merlin’s beard, Newt.” You shuffled towards Newt and wrapped his scarf properly around his neck. Your faces were now mere inches apart, something you hadn’t noticed because you were so focused on adjusting his clothing so that he’d be warm.

 Newt was trembling, but not from the cold. He was trembling because you were so close to him. He could see the details in your face, such as the furrow in your brow that appeared whenever you were focused. You looked up and he couldn’t help but admire your (e/c) eyes.

 “Ready?” Your giddy voice asked. Newt blinked owlishly before recollecting himself, then gave you a small nod. With a laugh, you skipped towards the ice rink

 “Skating?” he questioned, his curious eyes surveying the rink. The slightest of smirks tugged at his lips.

 “Don’t get too confident, I’m a known expert at skating.”

 “I just don’t understand how you’re better than me!” The skates you were wearing felt like heavy weights and have caused you to fall ten times already. Maybe you were exaggerating your skating expertise the teeniest bit, since the last time you were at an ice rink was at age five, but you figured the instincts would still be there.

 You were wrong.

 And surprisingly, Newt was far better at skating than you. He was gliding on the ice like a true natural, the joy evident in his features. You weren’t jealous, quite the contrary. This newly discovered skill only added to the long list of reasons you loved him. Though it would be nice if you could keep up with him.

 Newt came to a halt when he saw you stumbling on the ice. He suppressed a laugh and instead extended his hand to help you balance. “It’s alright, I’ve got you.” he cooed, his motherly tone coming out. 

 You clutched his arm as you struggled to steady yourself. When you were finally still, Newt lifted you onto his back. A squeak escaped your lips and you gripped the collar of his sweater. “Please don’t drop me, love.”

 “I wouldn’t dream of it. Besides, I’m a known expert at skating.” he teased, making sure you were secure before taking off on the ice.

Invisibility Blues: Exploring Race in Video Games
A video series critiquing race and representation in contemporary games and game culture.

Announcing a new NYMG project by Samantha Blackmon and Alisha Karabinus: Invisibility Blues, a critical video series analyzing race and representation in video games. For this ambitious project, we are turning to the community for support with our research and production costs.

Our goal is to produce at least five videos (plus a bonus, if funded) exploring different aspects of racial representation in games. In this documentary-style series, we will include voices from the community, alongside our own analysis, in an attempt to broaden the ongoing discussion about race in games.

We love what we do, and we want to bring the discussion to a wider audience. We hope you’ll stand with us, by sharing, supporting, and talking about the project as we work.
