gothicbutterfly95 chapter 8 . 4/24/2018
Love the line about Newt being the only one who talk about dung without making her squirm.
And when the conversation turned to the book and Newt was stressed because he wanted to write so much more than he was supposed to, Tina just told him to use his book to make the readers see the creatures through his eyes, as he had done with her, Queenie and Jacob.
Tina worrying about the next day and Newt telling her she would rise to the occasion because she was just as passionate about her work as he was his and so she shouldn't worry (because worrying means you suffer twice) was great.
And when he burst back into her room saying he had wanted to call her 'lovely' earlier, and the moment turned into a kiss, it was gorgeous.

Really liked how both Newt and Tina were disappointed at how small the 'Magical Creatues' section of Flourish and Blotts was, but they were hopeful Newt's book would change that. Tina's comment about a bright colour catching people's eyes was brilliant.
And then they're off to the case. Of course Tina wouldn't want to go down there in her flapper dress, and I loved that by the time she'd got down there Newt had already removed his coat and rolled up his sleeves. And Dougal was there clinging to her leg, waiting for when she'd come down.
Love her asking about where Pickett was, and Newt explained he was in one of his moping phases. But of course as soon as he sees them he forgets all about that.
And then there was that final line. I feel like things are about to go down.

Love Newt being so speechless when Tina arrived downstairs that Paulie had to jump in with that long list of synonyms which made her blush.
Her offering Newt to leave his case in her room was great, but I loved the reason why he couldn't: that the Minister had made him up the security of the case and not leave it unattended. Very realistic.
Tina asking whether they had to climb the wall to enter Diagon Alley was wonderful, and Newt's 'Welcome' instantly reminded me of the one Hagrid gave Harry.
Love the talking about Queenie and Jacob (so glad they're together) and the rules about No-Maj/Muggle interactions, and Newt pointing out that Queenie being a Legilimens could be very handy in this situation.
And when he showed Tina Flourish and Blotts; because book shopping is the only shopping she likes (I'm with her on that) she insisted that he showed her where his book would be.

Aww, they are just too cute.
Love Newt apologising to Tina and her worrying that it's about the kiss, when it turns out it's just London. Tina also trying to get the hang of the English slang with No-Maj vs. Muggle and bars vs. pubs was great, as was Newt commenting on her hair, leading her to ramble on, and getting annoyed at that before Newt says it suits her.
Tina's thought about wanting to experience England because it's Newt's homeland was beautiful, and her thoughts on the streets getting better as the went along was a great contrast to their arrival at the Leaky Cauldron.
Newt coming along with her when Paulie led her to her room and leaving with a smirk was lovely, and Tina's jetlag (Portkey-lag?) finally catching up with her was great. Love Newt wanting to show her around Diagon Alley and her wanting to go inside the case.

Love Tina taking in the sight of the Ministry as Newt led her around and out to the telephone booth, which made her think about phones and their slow appearance in NYC.
Newt is just so adorably awkward - I love him letting her enter the booth first - because it was small I wondered for a moment if they were going to take turns, but NO; in their together and kissing.
Newt being back to his awkward self as soon as they exited the booth was perfect, as was his directions to the Leaky Cauldron. They are next to no characters where I truly hear their voices when I'm reading, but I hear everything Newt says in Eddie Redmayne's voice and I love that.
Tina insisting they walk, because it's close and she'd like to see the city was almost as lovely as Newt shyly offering her his hand.
gothicbutterfly95 chapter 3 . 4/24/2018
Oh this was just adorable.
I love that even though Theseus seems to be genuinely happy with his bother's relationship with Tina. Also really liked Tina immediately seeing similarities between the brothers. Theseus' 'Did I forget to mention..." sounded very playful, while Newt is just standing there with a fish mouth, and as Tina tries to explain, he stammers out that he's very pleased to see her. I just LOVE Newt.
Another thing I really liked was Theseus saying Newt should take Tina out to dinner, and Newt's ears turning scarlet at that.
Love him offering to show her to the Leaky Cauldron and them both leaving the office with red ears.
gothicbutterfly95 chapter 2 . 4/24/2018
Very nice.
Even though this was just Tina arriving at the Ministry and going through security and find the office she was to report to, you did a great job with this chapter.
Love Deidre and the wand-checking and then the thoughts going through her head while she was on the lift. The witch talking to her was very nice and a lovely small addition.
And Newt being in his brother's office arguing with him when Tina arrived, at which point Tina forgot everything she was worried about and thought this trip could be a good one after all was beautiful.
gothicbutterfly95 chapter 1 . 4/24/2018
I've been interested in this story since you first started it, but I wanted to wait until it was finished so I could read it all in one go.
And I'm liking it a lot so far.
Tina and Queenie's interactions are always wonderful, and I loved that all Queenie did was try to ease her sister's worries. And how Tina knew that she couldn't hide anything from her sister even without her being a Legilimens.
Tina's thoughts on Queenie being perfect for a career in fashion was awesome, and I love that Queenie overhearing that prompted her to give Tina the dress, which of course she didn't think she deserved.
Really liked how as she waited for the Portkey, Tina focused on the job she had to do at the Ministry rather than Newt.

Wonderful story. I would happily read a sequel or a companion piece told from Newt’s POV. I’m off to what else you’ve written!
