    Summary

    Suppressants are safe and easy enough to get, and between that and the scent block and everything else about his outward personality, Martin lets everyone make their own assumptions.

    They never - ever - assume he’s type A.

    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.

    Summary

    Jonah Magnus has been planning a great ritual for nearly 200 years and he finally has it in his grasp. He's learned how to channel all of the powers into this world and, though he may have slipped up a bit, he has his candidate. Finally, the world will be his.

    At least, it would, if it weren't for the Youtubers that have suddenly taken an interest in the Magnus Institute.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    With Future Jon, aka the Archivist, stuck in the past, he has to help his past self fix the past.
    ---
    Dear Jon 2015,

    When you were young, you were meant to be a guest of Mister Spider. You escaped and a bully took your place. I know you’ve never told anyone this because I am a future version of you. I am Jonathan Sims, the Archivist, and I have lived through 5 years of the suffering that comes with your position. I come to you now with the hope that I can prevent the future I’ve lived through. I ended the world, and I leave you this note in the hopes you can avoid the same fate. Attached, you will find a list of every important date and a detailed description of the fear entities that are trying to corrupt this world.

    Trust your assistants. They will care about you if you let them. I’m afraid it’s already too late for them to leave the archives, as it is impossible to quit.

    Signed, Jon 2020, The Archivist

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims was Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute.

    He’d been hoping for a better job for a while, really. Research didn’t pay well enough. So, when Elias Bouchard, his boss, offered him the position, he accepted with little thought.

    And now, here he sat, just him and his assistants.

    And of course, the swarm of moths that followed him everywhere.

    Summary

    Martin, Tim, and Sasha have gotten themselves summer research jobs at the Magnus Institute. It’s been a lot more than they bargained for, and honestly they’d prefer it with about fourteen less eldritch fear beings.

    Summary

    Jon knew he was an awkward man. Hard to like.

    So when Tim had asked him if he wanted to go out to Spoons, he had just taken it in the same vein as their weekly nights out to the pub with Sasha.

    It took two hours for him to realize it was a date.

    Tim asking if he could kiss him when they left the restaurant was the first clue that really clicked.
     

    How different would the story be if Jon was in a relationship with Tim before the whole mess began?

    Summary

    Jon wakes up one day on the front steps of the Magnus Institute, drenched in blood, with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Martin wakes up some time later in a dreary moor, cradled by a gentle fog and the distinct feeling he’s forgotten something important.

    Luckily, the both of them being reborn as invisible spirits complicates things less than one might expect.
