Fandom: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Pairing/Characters: Percival Graves + Tina Goldstein, Seraphina Picquery
Summary: Graves isn't going to make this mistake again.
Length: Short (1,302 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Inspired by a conversation with icecream_junkie (I did write it after all!); ghis is not a particularly serious fic (in any sense of the term), it’s not historically accurate and probably not totally in line with Harry Potter lore either, and I doubt it's particularly original- but I’m rather pleased with it for all that, and I wanted to get it out there.
Excerpt: A few clerks noticed the paperwork and had a good laugh at the thought of Percival Graves going on vacation. They took bets on when he would change his mind, what crisis would erupt to keep him in New York, whether he would forget his plans to leave entirely- if indeed he had made those plans to begin with. A few suggested that someone must have filed the forms for Graves without consulting him- in an effort to get him to decompress, most likely, that would end in failure.
So when Graves arrived at work as expected on the day his vacation was to have begun, no one was surprised or suspicious. Some money exchanged hands on the lower levels, and no one on the higher levels was even sure he’d been leaving in the first place.
