    Summary

    "I need a new assistant", Jon snapped before he had even properly walked into the office. The space was lined with trinkets and ornaments from varying time frames, carefully placed and hung on bookshelves and walls. Jon had always thought it rather pretentious, displaying time like that as if it were something to be owned. Time was wild and free and knew no bounds. Or at least that’s what Martin always said. Jon thought the same thing of course, but would never state it in such a poetic way.
    -Or-
    Jon works in the archives at the commission. He needs a new assistant, and Five Hargreaves needs a new job.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood can't exactly say that his life is normal. It started out normal enough, but he's pretty sure that becoming a pseudo-immortal space pirate after being ripped open by a vampire doctor is a bit 'out there'. But he hasn't been home in centuries, and after the events of the Bifrost Incident, he really just wants to return to the mundane for a bit. Maybe he can tie up some loose ends while he's at it.

    The new archiving job and extra-spooky supernatural insanity wasn't exactly what he'd had in mind.

    ***

    An AU that explores Martin as a Mechanism during the TMA timeline.

    Summary

    It was certainly one thing to watch a different, scar laden, older version of oneself exit from an eye-shaped wound in reality. It was another thing entirely to realize that this version of oneself was without their coat.

    Summary

    The dreams keep appearing. Not very often, luckily, only once a week, sometimes every other.

    They’re not pleasant. He can’t get used to them. Every single time he wakes up in his old flat, surrounded by a dank smell and knocking and static, his heart rate jumps so high he’s worried it won’t be able to slow down.

    At least the figure is something different.

    -.-.-

    Where Jon's nightmare thingy actually does affect archive workers and Martin learns to live with it.

    Summary

    “Thanks for checking on me, but I’m cold and tired and I’d really like to go home now.”

    “Ah, right. Here,” Tim pulled his own jacket off and swung it around her shoulders.

    She started, blinking as he pulled the hood up. “Wh- I can’t take your jacket!”

    “Sure you can,” Tim shrugged. It was cold, but he was headed back to the Institute anyway, and he had a spare there. It wasn’t far. 

    “No, really, I can’t. I don’t have any money to give you for it and-” 

    “Okay, okay,” Tim raised his hands in surrender. “Okay. I’ll just have to walk you home so you can give it back, then.”

    >>Wherein Tim walks home a waitress he just met, makes a fool of himself, and she calls him back.

    This came about because Tim Deserves Better and by God I'm going to give him Better.

    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    On the desk is a statement—a statement Jon knows to belong to Andre Ramao.

    Jon knows this day. This day dug holes beneath his skin, gouged him, one of many marks much deeper than the outline of a paper clip against his cheek. Not yet, it hasn’t. A glimmer of hope: not yet.

    But why here? Why now? There are few days that Jon would voluntarily stumble through a second time, and 29th July is not one of them. So, who chose this?

     

    Or, Jon wakes up in 2016 and gets a second (and third and fourth and fifth) chance.

    Summary

    Tim watches as Jon’s eyes flit over the paper, and their face softens into a small smile. Martin walks back into the room, sees Jon and the paper, and he freezes. Before Jon can turn and see the look of horror on Martin’s face, Tim jumps to his feet.

    “Oh, that’s mine!” he claims, hoping that whatever Martin wrote wasn't too bad. “You,uh, you like it?”

    Jon scoffs, but they don’t say no. “I didn’t take you for a poet. I better not catch you writing poetry on company time.” There’s no bite to their words. In fact, it’s the most playful Tim’s heard them sound in weeks.

    “I’d never let you catch me, Boss!” Tim salutes Jon, who rolls their eyes and goes back into their office.

    It’s a love poem. Jon read a love poem that they found on the ground and they smiled. Tim looks up. “Holy shit, Martin, you’ve got to help me.”

    ****
    Or, Tim is in love with Jon and recruits Martin to write love poetry to help woo them, completely unaware of Martin’s own feelings for Jon. A queer Cyrano de Bergerac retelling set in the Archives.

    Summary

    A new radio show is airing tonight, filled with spooky (that's a bad word Georgie and you know it) stories to make you shiver with fear! Tune in to hear funny banter between your hosts, Jonathan Sims, the esteemed academic critic with no sense of humour but a great voice for narration; and Georgie Barker, the chief of sass and the mother of the best cat in the world, The Admiral!
    So get comfy, settle down with whatever you think keeps you safe. Check your doors, your cupboards, your wardrobe; our story may bring the monsters out to play. Are you ready?

    Set around the time of Season 1, except Jon never joined the archives and stayed in touch with Georgie. Jon acts more like season 5 Jon bc im the author and I don't like writing season 1-3 Jon.

    Summary

    At the end of the world, the Archivist stood watch. He stood and he watched for minutes, for hours, for years, for decades, for a time when time did not exist, he watched.

    And then he blinked, and Jonathan Sims was back before everything went wrong. He was back, and he had another chance to protect those he cared for, to protect the world.

    But first, he needs to learn how to act like nothing had changed in the Jon that everyone else knew.

    Besides the constant fear of death, that part is definitely the most difficult.

    (Or, Jon gets sent back in time, chaos ensues.)

    Summary

    Martin's new job at the Institute isn't what he was expecting. Along with Tim and Sasha, he's struggling with a disorganized Archive, no direction from their slightly-devious boss, and the growing feeling that they're in danger. Which is not helped by the cryptic warnings from a far too-knowing voice on an ancient tape recorder calling themselves the Archivist.

    Summary

    "In front of them was an eyesore of a van, bright blue and green, with floral designs painted across the side and large orange letters proclaiming it, 'The Mystery Machine'. That alone was not enough to discourage Adelard; he’d seen pictures of the van all over their website, and well, poor design choice could be overlooked given such positive client testimonials. The group outside the van, though - they made Adelard consider the possibility that Elias Bouchard might be right to be worried."

    Mystery Incorporated, made up of members Jonathan Sims, Sasha James, Timothy Stoker, and new recruits Martin Blackwood and Esther (his dog) are called to investigate an apparently haunted construction site. A Magnus Archives Scooby Doo AU.

    Summary

    Martin and Jon wake up to find a version of Jon staring down at them in the Archives after being pulled into Somewhere Else. There's something odd about this place though, starting with the simple fact that everyone is toting around animals that are pieces of their souls, and everyone is miraculously alive again.
    AKA: this is a Daemon AU, and also a fix it, where the characters from the original podcast are dropped into a reality for a do-over, but the alternate reality’s change is basically just Lyra’s London where daemons exist. So it’s a Martin and Jon with daemons meeting the canon Martin and Jon.
