    Summary

    In 2015, Jon is working for the Library of Jurgen Leitner - helping to hide, contain, and study dangerous books of the Fears. When Leitner insists Jon is the perfect match to buy and utilize the newest artifact he's found, Jon isn't expecting to come face to face with the tattooed, threatening figure of the son of Mary Keay.

    He's also definitely not expecting to have to make a split-second decision about buying his own Indebted.

    (Gerard just wants to survive this latest, strange master.)

    Summary

    Lost and alone at the end of the world, Jon decides to try one last idea. It goes wrong, as his ideas usually do, when both the Web and the Spiral decide to interfere with what he's doing. For once the disaster goes his favor. Mostly.

    He wouldn't have chosen to go back in time to when he was eight years old. He certainly wouldn't have chosen to catch Elias freaking Bouchard's attention before he's had a chance to do anything. And he cannot believe that his luck is so monumentally bad that he gets adopted by the man who wants to use him to end the world.

    Jon has to figure out how to keep Elias away, while saving his friends and the world. And hopefully growing old enough that he can go anywhere on his own and be taken seriously.

    Summary

    AU that was come up with on a shitposting group at 4 am. After Mary goes bye Gerry is left alone and the Avatars can't have this boy who learned to read on Leitners be free roaming. So now they're his family.
    If you're expecting a steady timeline or canon compliancy you need to look elsewhere. Danny is alive. Gertrude is gone at some point. And timing of this is very weird near intentionally. (Blame The Spiral)
    Many of the Leitner's I come up with from this fic come from another FB group, I'm not that creative.

    Summary

    Gerard's first thought when he awoke was that being dead felt oddly like being alive. It was colder, certainly, and there was a strange wet open feeling, but beyond that it was identical. If he concentrated he could even convince himself he still had a body.

    OR

    Gerry wakes up in the middle of The Archivist turning him into a skin book and meets Jon when he goes to confront her. High jinks ensue.

    Summary

    Jon's not sure that the house on Hill Top Road will actually let him travel to another universe, but he and Martin are out of options in a world that can no longer return to normal. The plan had been to travel to 2010 and prevent their past selves from ever working at the Institute, but Jon's forced to make a new one after getting separated and ending up farther in the past than he'd expected.

    Jon's not sure who this scarred stranger is, but everything he'd been told by teachers or his grandmother is to stay away from people he doesn't know. It was kind of annoying actually, getting pestered constantly as though Jon were the perfect target for kidnappers. He might be six years old, but he wasn't stupid.

    Summary

    The Eye isn't happy with how the end of the world turned out. Neither are Jonah and Jon. There is no other option but to rewind time and go down a different path. But time is hard for The Spiral and The Web likes to meddle.

    This is how Jon finds himself back in his eight year old body with all his memories, some of his powers intact and a strange bracelet around his right wrist. Saving the world, Jon realizes soon enough, is much harder when no one takes you seriously.

    Summary

    There are rumors in the countryside that the Wizard Blackwood will steal your heart and eat it, if he deems you worthy enough. Jon Sims has never believed these rumors. He's never believed in Magic to be frank. But when a harrowing encounter with an attractive wizard ends up with him being cursed, he must find a way to undo it if he's ever to return to his normal life. There's just one catch though, maybe Jon doesn't want to return to his normal life. What he does want though, is to break this curse on him.

    Summary

    In retrospect, Jon thought his last kidnapping was probably the best of them all.

    AKA: Jon gets kidnapped a lot more than is reasonable. All set pre-canon. Yes, this is crack.

    (Alternate title: in which Jon is nothing more than a macguffin)

    Summary

    The red head of the match glances off the box in a clumsy strike and is instantly alight. There is nothing interesting about the fire, really, other than the fact that Jon created it.

    --

    Or, Jon used fire to deal with Mister Spider when he was eight years old, and the Desolation has clung to him ever since.

    Summary

    “He can’t avoid you forever.” 

    At first, Jon seems to believe him. And to his credit, that belief waxes and wanes for an entire month before Jon gets tired of pointlessly asking after his boyfriend and throws a tape recorder across the room. 

    Gerry winces at the following crashing noise but doesn’t chide him for it; he figures waking up from a coma only to find that the person you’d been most desperate to see again is unreachable can excuse a little property destruction.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims, Melanie King, and Georgie Baker run a YouTube channel called What The Ghost. A deep dive into the paranormal and other strange phenomena.
    Sasha James and Martin Blackwood are archival assistants to Gertrude Robinson at The Magnus Institute.
    Tim is just trying to keep his brother out of trouble and finish his architecture degree. A task that only gets harder after “the clown manikin incident”.
    Gerry Key is somewhere between all of them.

    In other words a AU where Jon has a health support system but is still just as weird. As is everyone else. Eventual they all meet and Chaos ensues.

    Title is from the song Hand Me The Shovel I'm Going In by Will Woods.

    Summary

    Since JonGerry is a ship I will die on (and I will fight for the right to call it The Encyclopedias because it's funny and books of knowledge) and I just found out that JonGerry week is a thing, here is JonGerry week. This will function essentially as a prologue to my fic here. You don't have to read this one for that one or the other way around but here is some short snippets of Gerry and his original Jon.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims and Gerry Delano meet as children in Bournemouth. What starts out as hiding from their obnoxious classmates becomes a lifelong friendship.

    --

    I decided to jump in on JonGerry week and explore the L&N AU's Jon & Gerry friendship! I'll try to specify when in the timeline it happens for each chapter (if it isn't obvious). ;-)
