    Summary

    “I am the Master of this Mill. You can be my apprentice, if you’d like. I need one. You want to, don’t you?”
    “I want to."
    “And what do you wish to learn from me? The craft of milling, or also the other craft?”

    Jon, a 14 year old orphan, joins the Mill of Kosel's Quarry and thinks he has finally found a place of safety. But soon, he starts to question what is happening around him. What is their true purpose at the mill? Why is Sasha convinced that the Master killed the boy she loved? And who is that young man with the golden voice and copper curls in the village nearby?

    Summary

    It was not because of Prince Martin that Jon signed the contract. Jon could admit to himself that regardless of their childhood friendship he barely knew the man now. He was pining after a stranger whose life he saved, and he was not such a hopeless romantic that he would truly throw over everything for a Prince.

    Jon wasn’t certain that he loved Prince Martin, but he was certain that he loved the humans. The study of them absorbed him wholly. If all he got out of this contract was a lifetime of mutely watching the humans, it would be more than a fair trade. That there was the possibility of True Love with a handsome prince thrown into the bargain was… what was the human term? Icing on the muffin? No, that didn’t sound right. What even was a muffin?

    He shook off the thoughts, eyed the eight-limbed woman floating in the grotto, holding the contract. Could he really do this?

    “Go on,” Annabelle said. “Your future awaits.”

    Thinking of sunlight and sand, of poetry and muffins and the thousand things he was sure to learn on the first day, Jon took the quill and reached out and signed his name.

    Annabelle’s smile was broad, white teeth flashing brightly. “A merman no more. You won’t regret this.”

    Summary

    In his two centuries as Head of the Magnus Institute and leader of the Cult of Beholding, Jonah has never encountered something like Jonathan Sims.

    Jon really wishes he hadn't attended that lecture, or, failing that, he found it easier to dismiss his kidnappers' paranormal claims.

    Summary

    “Look, believe it or not, I had no intention of killing the Vampiric Council when I came here,” declares Nadja, sitting alone on the couch. “But Guillermo and I arrived at the first council meeting and did the whole, you know, the whole thing, the first day thing. Introductions and all that, yes hello wonderful to meet you, yes this is my bodyguard, yes he has slaughtered a tremendous number of our kind”--she flaps her hand absently--“normal first day things, you know? It was fine.” She pauses. “It got really fucking weird on the second day.”

    Or:

    Nadja and Guillermo seize control of vampiric politics, puppeteer world powers, and have the hottest of hot girl summers.

    Unfortunately, they also really miss the stupid assholes they're in love with. With no way left to find them, they have no choice but to consult an Archivist.

    Summary

    Inspired by The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

    To the outside perspective, Le Cirque de la Peur is a strange but wonderful Circus, open only at night, travelling and appearing without warning, filled with wonders that are as horrifying as they are astounding. But beneath the surface, The Circus is much, much more. To those who know, it is a feeding ground. To Jonathan Sims, it is his prison and his saviour.

    ***

    The Circus feeds the Fears, through Contests between pairings of the Entities. The time has come for Beholding and Forsaken to face each other. Elias and Peter Lukas submit their Contestants - Jon and Martin. But everyone has their own plans in place, and much more is at stake than the Contest.

    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

    Elias Bouchard was a terrible person first, ruler of the Underworld second, all-knowing Avatar of the Eye third, and father to Jon last, if ever. Their relationship is awful, to put it mildly. Jon has spent his life living within the halls of the Magnus Institute, never once seeing what lies beyond.

    Fighting his way out of Tartarus is no easy feat. He is marked by each of the Fears as he comes into contact with them and though he is cut down time and time again, he grows stronger with every death.

    Will he make it out, and discover what secrets Elias has been keeping from him in the process?

    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

    "Hey." A voice cut through Jon's train of thought. "Do you have a problem?”

    The goth was standing right in front of him. And Jon's eyes were fixated on the goth. He quickly averted his gaze, embarrassed. He had probably been staring at him the whole time.

    "No, not at all, I'm sorry. Your…" Jon pointed at his outfit. "Whole thing, is nice. Reminds me of when I was, er, young."

    Jon tapped a corner of the box of files he was carrying to the archive while the goth stared at him in silence. He was blocking his path, and Jon was too embarrassed to ask him to move after having made him uncomfortable. It didn't help that he wouldn't keep his eyes off of him. His gaze gave him goosebumps. It was too piercing, almost didn't feel human. Then, his brow unfurrowed and the ominous feeling faded. His voice came back gentler but still solid. Even grounding.

    “You work in research, right? I’ll need your help this afternoon. At two, in the corner nearest to the Institute’s front door.”

    Summary

    "Cut the tether," Jon said, as the world fell apart beneath his fingertips. "Send them away."

    And so Martin did.

    But that was not the end of it. Mere seconds later, Jon appeared out of nowhere in front of a small boy with red hair and wide, grey eyes.

    That boy's name was Gerry Keay.

    Summary

    “He just showed up the other day for the first time in, so far as I can tell, ever, and no one thinks it’s even a little bit weird? Something’s not right.”

    Martin paused for a moment.

    Jon was, of course, hoping in vain that his pointing it out would bring some sudden revelation, and then the two would set out with some half-brained scheme to Expose Michael For What He Really Was. They would go and tell Tim, who would tell Sasha, and it would be rather like old times: the four of them charging recklessly into something bigger than they understood, and coming away with some wild memory of their recent escapade, or something new and terrible and grand to ponder, or the truth, or whatever it was they went looking for.

    But Martin just said, “Jon, are you sure you’re feeling alright?” and Jon sighed.

    Summary

    Lighter & Leitner is not the campus bookstore. Tim Stoker is well aware of that, thank you very much. It sits near enough to campus that one might be mistaken, if they had not yet walked onto campus and witnessed the three story Waterstones directly next to the student affairs building, but Tim has been here for two and a half years, now, working desperately on a neverending PhD, and he knows the little hole in the wall bookshop across the street from his favorite coffee shop isn’t where students are supposed to buy their books. 

    So why Professor Elias Bouchard has sent him there on an errand with a list of course reserves to request they set aside for students in his upper-level Philosophy course, Tim could not even begin to tell you.

     

    or: grad student Tim is Elias' TA, Jon and Gerard run a used bookshop, and everything is about to go very much to hell in a handbasket
