General Fics

No roots by Unbreakable Vow

  • Recommended by: SageTheWriter

Relationship Counselling by Anonymous.

  • Recommended by: fairlyfelonious
  • Status: Complete
  • Story type: One-shot
  • Story genre: Humor/crack
  • Pairings: Past Albus Dumbledore/Gellert Grindelwald
  • Characters: Gellert Grindelwald; Original Percival Graves
  • Summary: Grindelwald wants to win Dumbledore's heart back, and keeps asking a captive Graves for love advice. Original Percival Graves doesn't deserve this.
  • Great. Just great. I haven't seen any other crack in this fandom, especially concerning Grindelwald/Anybody, and this was just perfect.

The Cigarette Case by Agent Malkere.

  • Recommended by “HattedHalfling
  • Status: Complete, but with the potential of future updates adding to the storyline.
  • Advertisement:
  • Pairing: Newt Scamander/Percival Graves
  • Synopsis: Apparently even Gellert Grindelwald isn't immune to a niffler's sticky paws. (In which Newt was not expecting to find Percival Graves in a stolen cigarette case.)
  • Comments: One of the original Newt/Percival fics from when the movie first came out, but still one of the best! Includes some excellent pre-slash, solid characterization on everyone's part (including, shockingly enough, the niffler), an interesting look into Grave's potential reactions to having been replaced by Grindelwald, and A+ scenes with Newt and his creatures.
