    Summary

    “Did you, uh,” Jon starts. “Do you know about the Doves typeface?” 

    “Oh, er– what?” 

    “It’s just that, uh, the creator of Doves type threw all of its original printing matrices into the Thames.”

    “That’s very, um—” 

    “—He wanted to keep them from his business partner.” 

    “I didn’t—”

    “Right.”

    Summary

    “Very well,” Elias sighed, putting his pen down. “Let’s get this over with, then. What bothers you, Martin? The fact I’ve known all along you were lying about your CV? That we’ve had sex multiples times over the course of the last ten years and that I didn’t acknowledge at any time your romantic feelings for me? Or are you merely convinced that because you are not part of the more important projects in my life or the Institute I’ve never cared about you, specifically?”

    Three times Elias and Martin's conversations ended with sex + one time It didn't.

    Summary

    You find yourself in a precious garden, being the party guest to a very curious man with shining green eyes that serves you delicious tea, sandwiches and desserts, while telling you an interesting love story:

    Jon plummets to the past or maybe an alternate reality. Here, memoryless, he finds the only person he has any recollection of: Jonah Magnus.

    As Jon rediscovers his powers, learns and teaches Jonah about the Dread Powers, he would find himself in a slow simmer relationship with the man, while trying to navigate the Victorian Era, or something akin.

    Summary

    After their intervention with Jon in regards to his feeding habits, Basira convenes a meeting of the assistants to discuss using an artefact that she recently encountered in storage on him. It’s supposed to cut someone off from the influence of the Beholding, and Basira thinks it might be the only way to regain his humanity.

    It isn't. It just does something far worse to both Jon and Basira.

    Summary

    "What year is it?"

    His tongue is dry and Jonah still feels paralyzed. There is a sudden pressure at his throat, a ribbon wrapped around his muscles that tugs upward, forcing his lips to move in a way that he knows is supernatural.

    “May 29th, 1803,” he gasps and clutches at his neck to fight the sensation even as it goes slack and begins to fade.

    Between death and a do-over, Jon would have tentatively chosen ‘do-over’. Of course, even when he and Martin get another chance, things become complicated and now they are faced with how to save this new reality while living with their former arch nemesis pre-avatarhood and whilst adjusting to the new time period. Chaos, as expected, ensues.

    Summary

    “Perhaps there are many such places across the Earth. Perhaps it is unique. Certainly, no-one has known either way.” (MAG 196)

    In which Night Vale is another break in the universe. It’s a somewhat more dramatic one than Hilltop Road.

    Summary

    Martin stands. His feet are numb and his knees protest as loud as they can and Martin doesn’t think he’s ever felt so old. But he starts walking, and then he starts running. Not blindly. The fog shifts around him, and Martin knows it. He knows the fog, he was a part of it once — maybe he still is. Maybe he will be forever. But he thinks about Jon, and moves towards where the fog is the thickest. Wherever the Lonely doesn’t want him to go is where he needs to be.

    In s5, Jon becomes a temporary victim of Martin's domain. Slight canon divergence in the way an Eye/Lonely domain manifests itself. Hurt/comfort and angst with a happy ending. Parallels to MAG 159 all the way down, babey.

    Summary

    The Magnus Institute Library was a highly organized place where books were carefully catalogued and referenced. It wasn't the oldest part of the building, but it gave the impression that it pre-dated anything else. It stood at the core of the structure and the shelves were pristine, not a spot of dust to find anywhere. This seemed to be the primary purpose of the staff.
