    Summary

    In 1913 Newt Scamander endangered the life of a student and was sentenced to be expelled from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, thanks to the testimony of his transfiguration professor, Albus Dumbledore, the expulsion was never enforced.

    However, this left a blemish on Scamanders record ensuring his future as an outcast within the British Magical Community. Unable to find stable work as a magizoologist after graduating, he followed his brother Theseus' advice and in 1917 set off on an adventure to travel the world and discover the wonders of the magizoological world.

    Until he met an aspiring auror in New York City two years later.

    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.

    Summary

    Somebody has to take out the trash and Lena decides it might as well be her. If the hero's won't do what needs to be done she will, after all she is a Luthor. And if turning to the dark side involves separating Kara from her douche of a boyfriend? Well that's just a happy coincidence. But if she's going to be evil she's going to do it right by following some simple rules. No insane laughter and impractical super weapons for her. No she's going to avoid the pitfalls of lesser villains and she'll do it with style.

    Summary

    Death likes the ones who resist, who persist, who don't back down and never give up. She likes the stubbornest, the ones who have the nerve to run away from even her. So she takes a mildly terrified Doctor Strange under her wings with no hesitation.

    Stephen is just rolling with the punches.
