    Summary

    “Aren’t you frightened?” Hermann growls, half in irritation, half in bewilderment.

    The man—who’s named Newton, Hermann learned, by way of quick introduction after Newton unceremoniously barged through his castle doors, deposited a little suitcase on the floor, and tossed his jacket on the coat hook, all the while yelling about the long walk there and how cold it is, the castle has fifty chimneys, how has Hermann not lit a single fireplace—scoffs. “Why should I be?” he says.

     

    (or: a beauty and the beast au where newt doesn't really have the time for fairy tale conventions when there are hot monsters to investigate, there's no talking furniture, and absolutely no one is held prisoner anywhere)

    Summary

    Years after they stopped writing each other, Newt and Hermann run into each other on the steps of Cambridge University Library. Quite literally.

    Newt stares at him, expecting more. He doesn’t get any. “Come on, man, who are you? Maybe I’ve read something.”

    I doubt it, Hermann barely catches himself from saying. “Gottlieb. Hermann Gottlieb.”

    And Newt looks like he’s struck oil. “Oh my god,” he says, and something flickers behind his eyes, like there’s more than just recognition there, and before he can wonder any more about what it is, Newt blurts, “Oh my god!” and Hermann flinches and makes a face like a disgruntled frog.

    Summary

    After the clock stops, Newt goes on the vacation he’s always said he wanted, and quickly remembers how much he hates to be alone. Thankfully, Hermann interprets a friendly you should come! as an invitation, and together they navigate a sea that is much less inviting after what they’ve seen come out of it, and relearn how to live.

    or: I wanted to write a summer beach fic and this is what happened.
