    Summary

    People found him rather annoying, so it wasn't possible for anyone to return feelings for him. So why he was getting his hopes up for a man named after an Arthurian knight was beyond explanation. Men named after Knights of the Round Table fell in love with graceful damsels.
    And he wasn't a damsel and was far from graceful.


    Newt returns to New York a year later to visit, and it was just supposed to be a short visit, he would assure everyone in earshot later on. Really, it's not like he meant to become involved in Tina, Percival Graves, or the MACUSA's auror department's new investigation surrounding missing children, honest.
    Yet here he was, finding himself intertwined in that very same case, holding a small infant, listening to Seraphina Picquery instruct him and Graves to watch over the baby girl until suitable foster parents could be found and that was only after the mystery behind her parent's death was solved.
    Throw in an overprotective brother, some worried friends, a case filled with creatures, and some confusing emotions for a certain grumpy auror and once again, New York is certainly proving his theory of being far more interesting than he had ever expected.

    Summary

    Aposematism in animals is designed to prevent attack. It doesn't always work, sometimes it's ineffective against some predators, sometimes it isn't. As a primary defence mechanism, Newt is a colourful individual with his blue coat and golden hair. His secondary defences aren't visible however and often are what surprise his opponents the most. Bright creatures tend to be very toxic to predators, but mammals like honey badgers are aggressively defensive. Newt is a Hufflepuff and the emblem of his house suits him well. Signalling theory tells you that Newt warns off predators and opponents with his colours, but when they don't take heed he'll show his claws and fight tooth-and-nail. It's what survivors do.

    And Newt Scamander is definitely a survivor.

    The main story arch is completed in part 6, the rest is just bonus stuff because I can't shut off my brain.

    Summary

    Sequel to 'Let the Monster Rise' in which Newt struggles along the road to recovery in the aftermath of Grindelwald's defeat with the help of friends, family and a very overprotective Auror. Full of angst, drama, smut, PTSD, fluff, humour and magical creatures. But be warned of majorly dark themes throughout. This is obviously an AU that won't make much sense if you haven't read the first instalment.
