This, this exactly. He looks at them and he sees Ariana and Albus, as everything should have been, maybe as everything would have been if Ariana had never been attacked. (He doesn’t see a single thing of Grindelwald in them, in fact, he flat refuses to see anything of Grindelwald in them and he will never let that fucker lay hands on them…)

How much do you want to bet that it was Aberforth who was taking care of Albus during his pregnancy, even though the wounds from that summer were still so fresh? I can imagine that Albus maybe tried to hide it at first; he’d already done so much to hurt his family and besides, Aberforth had made it clear that he doesn’t want anything to do with Albus anymore (his nose still aches a bit at times), it will be fine, it’s only nine months, he can handle this on his own (he can’t handle this on his own). 

After three months or so of no contact, Aberforth finally dregs up enough worry to go check on Albus where he has wandered off to (for some reason, I’m imagining a small flat somewhere in Scotland, obviously in a Wizarding area) and when he sees the state that Albus is in when he finally manages to track him down, well….needless to say, Aberforth hits the roof and it’s all he can do to keep himself from finding that bloody German bastard and throttle the life out of him. The only thing stopping him is that Albus, Albus has obviously not been taking care of himself like he should be and so it is up to Aberforth once again to take care of one of his siblings. And to make sure that German fucker stays blissfully unaware of what he has done….

HAHAHAHAHAHA, TAKE THAT, GRINDELSTANK!

On another note, how much do you want to bet that when he had them captive, Grindelwald would punish the Scamander twins by separating them if one of them “acted out?” Like, “I’m being generous and indulgent letting you two stay together, but if you’re going to act like this….”

How did you like it? And yes, Queenie. He wouldn’t suspect shit from Queenie. I am of the firm headcanon that Tina and Queenie mostly keep her natural gift of legilimency secret because you fucking know there would be people who would want to use her for it. She passes by Grindelstank who is in disguise but Queenie knows, Queenie knows who the fuck he is and now.

Now she knows where Newt, Theseus, and the real Graves are. Hell, she probably didn’t even have to use her legilimency. 

She recognizes Newt’s case.

Ugh, it’s just a reconfirmation of his worse nightmare to Newt (proof that no, no, that wasn’t a fever dream induced by the Vertiaserum and the pain and fear, it was true, oh Merlin, it was true..!). Graves is uncomprehending, slowly realizing, and feels utterly awful on their behalf and Theseus…

Theseus is full-blown horror and panic and denial because no, no, this can’t be true, he’s lying, he’s fixed this somehow, someway, no, he’s meant to be finding and stopping this monster, he can’t be his blood father, he just can’t!

I bet Grindelwald treats them very much like he treated Credence - almost casual contact, violating every single inch of their personal space, making it up close and personal - so they can’t, literally can’t avoid him. Almost condescending, heavy-handed touches - and after Theseus tries to bite his fingers off/Newt flinches back with a pitiful cry one too many times, I bet he locks the twin in question in a full body-bind so they can’t escape.

Both twins probably want to scrub their skin off after every interaction. They hug each other fiercely, and hug Graves fiercely, and - that helps.

Mama and Papa Scamander are indeed freaking the fuck out. Their babies have been captured by a Dark Lord - their babies defied said Dark Lord, and Grindelwald has a tract record of not taking defiance well. Mama and Papa Scamander have been taken into protective custody, and the worst part is, they don’t know the whole story. They have no idea of the relationship the twins have with the Dumbledores - Albus probably simply approached them years ago, telling them about a pair of orphaned newborns who needed a good home, could you…?

This is likely. Especially if he foresaw his death at Voldemort’s hands. 

Do you think, with all those years alone to think of what he’s done, that he feels guilty about what he did to them? What he put them through? 

The seventh book did say he started to feel remorse…..

I kept reading fanfics about Newt fighting in the dragon corps during WWI and also Theseus so killing two birds with one stone here is Newt in his dragon corps outfit and my take on a Theseus design so to speak. And an up close shot so you may appreciate the freckles on their widdle faces:D 

Newt does not look happy because I can see him objecting to the use of dragons in warfare but having no choice anyway because at least he tries to form an understanding with them instead of using brute force to control them.

Extremely.

Looking at the situation logically - Grindelwald can’t approach them in public, he’s an internationally-wanted criminal - so he can’t simply waltz up to Aberforth at the Hog’s Heade and casually ask him to pass on a message to Albus. He can’t approach Albus at Hogwarts, because like fuck will Albus let him near children. It would most likely be best for him to simply send his ex a letter via owl, specifying a time and a meeting - I will not ask you to come alone. The letter reads, Grindelwald’s bold, almost flamboyant quill-strokes devouring the paper. Keep in mind, however, that any attempt to ambush or otherwise impede me will result in harsh consequences for others - I trust I need not clarify whom?

And if Gellert wants to twist the knife, wants to really drive the point home - he’d simply request that Albus meet him at the old Dumbledore place. Their old cottage, in Godric’s Hollow. Albus, as the oldest, technically owns the property, but he hasn’t been back there in years - the memories are too painful. (She died. Arianna died, he never wanted that, he was young and in so very much in love, but she died.) And I think that Grindelwald is not above squeezing every last advantage he can get from Albus’s pain and guilt.

Aberforth, of course, is practically beyond furious. But what can they do? They go. And Grindelwald is waiting for them, expensive robes impeccable as he greets them. Mister Dumbledore. He calls Aberforth, nodding briefly. And then he turns to Albus, and the smile crossing his face is vicious victory and possessive greed. Liebling.

Grindelwald is not there to negotiate. He is there to tell them how things will go. He outlines it plainly: he has Newton and Theseus Scamander are in his possession. (That’s how he puts it: in his possession, as if they are things he can own.) Aside from a few bumps and bruises, they have not been harmed. Regrettably, it appears that they have been - somewhat ill-educated, if not outright misinformed in certain matters, but Albus needn’t fear - Grindelwald is personally educating them in respect to proper wizarding attitudes and interactions with non-magicals. (Albus goes white. Aberforth goes red. This, as you mentioned in a prior post, is their worst nightmare - Gellert trying to turn the twins into him.)

And to prove it - well. Here, have a memory, liebling - and Grindelwald puts his wand to his head and removes a silver-thread strand of thought, letting it billow into being in front of him - it’s the twins. It’s the twins, as they were on the first day, when he threw a petrified Theseus next to an immobile Newt and used the ancestry-revealing potion on them. Then another flesh of memory, more recent - Newt curled into a ball on the other side of a table, shoulders heaving as he sobs silently; Theseus screaming, hair disheveled, face scarlet with rage as he lunges for Grindelwald’s throat…

Albus can’t help but drink in the sight, even as his heart twists and cracks. His babies, these are his babies, and - and they’re still alive, they know the truth, but they’re still fighting…

It’s a casual observation, and Gellert delivers it off-handedly - they have your eyes, liebling, and my cheekbones. But somehow, it’s the most terrifying thing that that Dumbledore brothers have ever heard. This is Gellert Grindelwald laying claim.

Grindelwald lays out the situation in plain and simple terms. The twins are his. Albus is his. And if he ever wants to see them again, if he wants to act as a modifying force on the twins’ ‘education’ (and there is a threat there, a threat of darker things then brainwashing attempts and psychological torment) he will come with Gellert. Grindelwald isn’t expecting an answer now, he knows it’s a bit of a shock, so he’s going to give Albus six months. Six months to finish the school year and make arrangements, six months to find a way out, six months to realize that it is impossible, six months when he knows the twins are suffering… Six months, with the knowledge that Gellert has won ringing in his bones.

Gellert bows, an almost courtly gesture, reaching out and kissing Albus’ limp hand. I shall expect you in six months, liebling - and then he’s gone, Apparition leaving only shadows in his wake.

To take things a different tack, how do you think Credence feels in the Dumbledore Scamander AU? He’s probably happier then he’s ever been before when he and his sisters are taken in and then adopted by Newt, Tina, and the real Graves. His Obscurus is under control, he’s learning magic, Ma is gone…but then Grindelwald makes himself known again. And now, because Newt adopted Credence, now they’re family too….            

I’m just going to answer these two posts together…

And yes. That’s a connection I didn’t consider before, but Credence would absolutely have experience with terrible parents, and how they do not define who and what you are. He was the first victim of Grindelwald’s heavy-handed ‘affection’ - he knows the mind games the man plays, he knows how he pries open a corner of your heart and floods it with sweet venom, he knows. He probably has a better idea then any of them about exactly what Newt and Theseus are going through - especially after he learns that he’s their blood-father.

Actually, taking everything into account - Credence may be something of a help to Albus as well. 

When Grindelwald reappears - Credence is panicking. There’s no ifs ands or buts about it - this is his worst nightmare come to life, this is everyones worst nightmare. He’s having flashbacks of Grindelgraves, how he deliberately turned Credence’s soul inside-up and upside-down, for his own benefit - how Grindelwald hurt him, clinically, ruthlessly, in pursuit of his goals.

And this time. This time, it would be so much worse. Because now - now Credence is Newt’s family. Which to Grindelwald’s mind, means that Credence - and his sisters, and his unborn cousin - is his. Credence has heard Graves and Newt screaming in their sleep far too many times to think that is anything even resembling acceptable. He was there when Graves and the twins were rescued, he saw what conditino they were in…

You ever think that Newt and Graves are already married though?

Like before the events of FBAWTFT, Newt and Graves had met. Newt was 18 and Graves was 22 and they met through Theseus who was all ‘Perry, this is my precious baby bro and the reason I live in this world, Look at him. Cute as a baby hippogriff, biting and all.’ It’s not even a marriage in a traditional sense. It was more something Newt and Perry sign in for Perry to keep his family property or for Newt to have an international travelling permit or SOMETHING.
