It was silent, out here on the steps of his modest little workshop, and one could almost be forgiven for thinking they were really outside. Newt had spent many months, years ago, carefully crafting the space inside his briefcase, and it had been expanding ever since. Each habitat, with its walls that mimicked the outside world, reminded him of the starry sky above the Great Hall at Hogwarts that he’d so loved. He didn’t have the skill to do much more than a mediocre job, though, but perhaps no one ever would. Much of the magic performed by the founders, particularly to that scale, had since been lost to time.

Perched on his lap as he sat in his doorway was a small typewriter, clicking away as he typed. Every now and then, Newt reached over to check a rather battered notebook filled with scrawls and diagrams of the many wonderful creatures he’d encountered on his travels. As he sat there, writing, the sunlight began to fade, casting long shadows across the habitats and their occupants.

“Time for dinner soon,” he murmured, checking the parchment in front of him. “But I’m almost finished.”

Newt wasn’t in the habit of talking to himself, and sure enough, a faint squeaking could be heard as Pickett poked his head out of his coat pocket.

“Now really, Pickett, we’ve talked about this. I can’t feed you first. What would Charlie and Morty say?” Carefully pulling the parchment out of the typewriter, he scanned down the page, checking what he’d written. The rest of the manuscript sat beside him, several hundred pages of his life’s work all typed out.

“No, you know perfectly well I can’t put you in. Look, there’s going to be a picture,” he said, picking up his notebook again and flipping through it to show the Bowtruckle. “But I can’t caption it Pickett. Not every Bowtruckle is named Pickett.”

The creature in question seemed to give an indignant sort of squeak.

“You’re letting the attention get to your head. What if someone realised you live here with me? What if they tried to take you away?” Newt didn’t officially have any favourite creatures, though he thought some of his creatures might suspect that he did, and he knew Pickett talked about it as if he were.

Which, if Newt ever admitted it to himself, he was. One of, anyway. To lose Pickett would be almost unbearable, and he’d had a taste of it not that long ago.

Sighing, Newt began to type again on a fresh piece of parchment as Pickett burrowed away again. That had certainly been quite an adventure, and though he wasn’t all that keen on risking his creatures again, he was itching to see his friends.

They were, after all, the first friends he’d made in a long time that were actually human.

He pulled the final parchment out of the typewriter, yawning. This page was almost blank, but for a few lines:

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

By Newt Scamander

Ever since Tina had suggested it, the title had stuck. It seemed fitting, and it was far better than the working titles he’d been using. And perhaps Newt wanted a little nod to his adventures in New York. The whole fiasco had certainly sped up the writing process, anyway.

Smiling, he fixed the page to the front of his manuscript. Newt couldn’t remember ever finishing such a big project in his life — and he couldn’t remember ever feeling so proud.

“Let’s go, Pickett.”
