    Summary

    When Martin took the job as Head Archivist, he really, truly only wanted to help. He really thought he could.

    Maybe that was his first mistake. Maybe there was no helping others in this world.

    (Or maybe you could only help others if you let yourself be helped first.)

    Summary

    The long awaited sequel of Assets and Liabilities!

    We follow the story as Gertrude attempts to solve the mystery of Jenny Blackwood's disappearence and what connection she may have with the Magnus Institute. Meanwhile Jon grows suspicious of the head archivist, concerned if he can trust her.

    Martin worries for his wellbeing and is slowly losing hope about finding his sister while Tim and Sasha catches up with their old friend Dave from Research...or is it really Dave? Darkness looms over London and something sinister is in the shadows, waiting for the proper moment to strike.

    Summary

    "Why were they only now experiencing these effects? Why today? The Archivist had read countless statements before, and sure, it was common for them to deal with strange feelings because of them, but this was different somehow. Something was wrong. Very, very wrong, in their mind, in their body, in their very soul."

    Or, Jon deals with discontinuation syndrome on their first day off their meds and Martin, being Martin, decides to help.

    Summary

    From Jon’s perspective: Martin is either missing or dead, Jane Prentiss has been thoroughly dealt with, and now the police are breathing down his neck for Gertrude’s murder.

    From Martin’s perspective: He’s very much alive and currently trying to get out of America and back to the Institute, with the help of a few friends. Which is a bit difficult, as he is trapped in an amulet (that is also his conscious being? It’s weird).

    Honestly, Clef and Bright are just along for the ride, at this point.

    Summary

    Jonah Magnus decided to move his Institute to London in 1841, and establish an Archive.

    Not a paper and ink archive. The best way to feed terror to his patron, he realised, would be to build a flesh and blood record to truly bear witness, a beholder.

    Now it was merely a matter of finding a child suitable for such a purpose.

    Summary

    He hated these kind of events. The standing around, and the talking, and the side eyes he got when they found out where he worked. They were all kind of useless anyway. Not like he could talk about the flesh-eating worms or the supernatural powers anyhow.

    Or: Jon has to go to an event for the institute. It turns out to be just as fun as he thought it would be, which is not at all.

    Or: Jon monologues about the horrors of people and networking, helps steal a Leitner with his boss and Annabelle Cane, and is reminded of something he'd rather forget.

    Summary

    That’s when it occurs to him that Elias has failed to ask him where he lives. He wouldn’t put it past him to know all of their addresses by heart, but they aren’t anywhere near Martin’s neighborhood. In fact—he has no idea where they are. He tries to hide his fear, but he’s no good at concealing his emotions at the best of times. His breathing elevates and his hands shake.

    "Relax, Martin. If I wanted you dead, I would have killed you at the Institute."

    (Elias gives Martin a lift, and then gives him something else.)

    Summary

    “What do you want from me?”

    Jon watches as Elias shivers through another wave of tingling. His lips press together until they go bloodless, and then his tongue finally darts out as he speaks, hoarse and breathless.

    “I’d like to kiss you,” Elias says, pupils blown wide and hungry in an infinite ink-black void.

     

    Driven by curiosity, Jon experiments with kissing Elias.
