or: Five times Graves talked to a magical creature and one time he told someone he could.

Graves can speak to magical beasts. This wasn't particularly a problem until a magizoologist with a suitcase-full stumbled into his life.

Basic Instincts
“Who are you?” Graves demanded hoarsely.

“I’m Newt. Scamander. Err. Pleased to meet you. I mean, I would’ve been pleased to meet you, under normal circumstances.”

“Scamander.” Graves frowned to himself. For someone who was supposedly in a bad rut, he seemed perfectly in control. “Your accent, it’s British. Any relation to Theseus Scamander? Head of the DMLE?”

“I’m his younger brother.”

“Are you an Auror?”

“No. I’m a magizoologist.”

Graves exhaled, exasperated. “A what? Is this a rescue or are you a hostage?”

“Sort of neither,” Newt admitted.

Roar - Elenothar - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
After Graves' fourth escape attempt Grindelwald decides that turning the man into a magical creature - a process thought to be impossible to reverse - will take care of the problem quite nicely. Too bad he didn't anticipate Newt Scamander.

The way to a witch's heart - Nary - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Tina had said maybe it would be easier for Queenie to make a clean break. After all, Jacob had what he'd always dreamed of - his own bakery, a successful business - and she knew he was happy. That ought to have been enough. Going back to see him again (and again, and again) was only going to cause problems. But Queenie couldn't help herself. He was the kindest, sweetest man she'd ever met, even if he was a No-Maj, and she missed him with an ache that she hadn't known was possible. All the creampuffs shaped like Nifflers in the world couldn't fill the emptiness she felt.

To Honor and Obey by Anon
You know what, of course the one Fantastic Beasts story I would bookmark is genderfuck marriage-of-convenience Credence/Graves. Of course. Stunningly well written with an absolutely beautiful depiction of Credence, and with a writer who walks a careful line to show all the control, hurt and tenderness of Graves, too, through Credence's almost crippling fear. Wonderful.

“He’s a squib.”

Picquery stared at the blonde witch standing before her, the no-maj next to her barely registering in her thoughts at that statement. Vaguely, she recalled that this was Goldstein’s little sister, the one who’d been trying to hide that very same no-maj behind her petite frame just 4 months ago.

The Case of the Missing Obscurus - manic_intent - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Getting rescued from the sarcophagus that Grindelwald had stashed him in turned out to be a thoroughly uncomfortable affair, if only because Graves suspected that Tina would never let him forget it’d happened, ever. Of all the Aurors who could’ve stumbled over Grindelwald’s vault, did it really have to be her?

Besides, Grindelwald hadn’t had that much time to make Graves’ said sarcophagus stay anything more than humiliating, unless his Grand Plan was to see how long Graves would take to die of boredom. Thankfully, Tina had found Graves before he’d gotten tired of grimly plotting Grindelwald’s murder. Unsettlingly enough, by all reports, Grindelwald had actually been credible enough at Graves’ soul-sucking time sink of a normal job that not even Graves’ closest minions had figured him out. Which meant that a) small wonder Grindewald hadn’t progressed his Plans of World Domination(?) further than aggressively stalking some poor kid and b) Graves clearly needed new minions.

Would You Stay - Anonymous - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Newt gets himself into a very bad situation, and Tina, Percival, and Queenie are stuck not only with caring for a magical menagerie- but with keeping their 'mummy' alive when the mishap leaves him at Death's door. It's more trouble than even they could imagine; and Percival finds out that he might have a soft spot for awkward, shy redheads with a case of deadly creatures.

A Bit of Bother and All That
Despite later claims by Porpentina Goldstein, the first thing that Newt Scamander, illegal magizoologist, actually said to Graves was “Oh. I really didn’t think that there were two of those.”

Graves looked around quickly, wand cautiously raised. One of Grindelwald’s ‘silos’ of stored and mostly illegal paraphernalia had turned out to also include an acid-spitting two-legged ostrich-sized lizard, whose spit had dissolved, unfortunately, much of said illegal paraphernalia, a desk, several chairs, and Newt’s clothes. The lizard was asleep, bubbling gently beside the stairs, clutching the virulently pink flower bulb that Newt had thrown at it right before he’d been drenched.

“Where’s the other one?”

“No, no, I meant your coat,” Newt explained brightly.

A Proper Education
Percival managed not to grimace, but Seraphina’s eyes narrowed. Behind her were two groups of Fifths: a pack of three gangly Serpent boys whom Percival vaguely remembered as pranksters, and a fourth whom he didn’t recognise, a pretty boy with a Thunderbird badge. The kid was gangly and tall, though hunched in on himself, freckled, with unruly ginger hair, and he was staring at his feet, as though resigned to his fate.

“What happened?” Percival inquired carefully.

“A stupid Fifth prank.” Seraphina supplied. “On the new Thunderbird transfer. Out of Hogwarts?” she elaborated, when Percival raised his eyebrows.

Ah yes, that’s right. Thunderbird’s Head, Kara Miranda, had mentioned something along those lines as a footnote in his last briefing. “What kind of prank?”

Seraphina’s lip curled. “Does it matter?”

“It matters to me,” Percival shot back evenly.

Graves is not impressed by the chaos left in Grindelwald’s wake. Or the fact that he’s been ordered to take one Newt Scamander on as a permanent consultant.
