    Summary

    Instead of retiring to open a book shop, Gerry ends up working at a flower shop run by American lesbians in London. This leads to a brush with the Distortion, who just wants to buy some lilies, the Magnus Institute finding out he’s still alive, and... well, a normal life was never really in the cards for the likes of Gerard Keay, was it?

    Oh, and those lesbians who run the flower shop? There’s more to them than meets the eye.

    (No knowledge of Maniac Mansion required; I take lots of liberties to slot it into TMA’s universe.)

    Summary

    In the morning, Tim had apologized if Jon had been uncomfortable with any of it. And he checked in through the evening, said he never wanted Jon to feel pressured or as though Tim was taking advantage of his position. Had gotten a patient smile on his face at the bar when Jon began to squirm, and said he understood about Gerard.

    Who was he kidding? Worst of all was Jon’s stupid hopeless crush on his other new boss. The one he wasn’t sleeping with.

    -----

    AU: Archivist Gerard and Head of the Institute Tim. Jon is there, also.

    Summary

    Gerry would like nothing better than to burn the last vestiges of his mother's business to the ground.

    Unfortunately, he's bound to the building. So he does the next best thing.

    (or, Gerry runs a tattoo parlor, hunts Lietners, gets entangled with the Season 1 Archives crew, makes friends, and does his best to ruin the entities' days)

    Summary

    “Yes, my compass is in my pocket.” Michael smiles as he pulls it out. “I keep it with me always. I’ll never get lost again thanks to you.”

    But he does get lost, and the only proof he ever existed is the small compass Gertrude brings back from Sannikov Land. Gerry clings to the only reminder of their love as he throws himself into his work, sure that he’s finally fallen out of reach of happiness - yet he can’t help noticing the way his luck slowly begins to improve, or the strange, twisting colors lurking in the corner of his eye.

    Summary

    Gerry would have been quite happy to remain dead.
    He's still not quite sure he came back 'right', but at least the constant pull of the eye was muted now behind the constant swirling colours that crept along before him.
    But all roads lead back to the Magnus Institute eventually, and the lavender tinged fog had begun to swallow up the other fears in it's grasp.
    The Usher foundation could only help him so much, so with the name Lukas on his lips he sends a email.
    To: Headarchivist@themagnusinstitute.ac.uk

    Meanwhile in the archives Jon really is struggling to get past the mortifying feeling of asking his subordinate if he was a ghost. It wasn't as if he didn't already make an arse of himself in front of Martin every time he opened his mouth. Jon Just want's to keep him safe, and well if that mean giving him stupid tasks like follow up's with little old ladies and taking calls from the Usher foundation, it might not be thrilling work but it will keep him alive.
    Even if Martin hates it.

    Summary

    “I’m already dead, after all.” Gerry smiles, a mirthless flash of teeth. “If I pop out of existence tomorrow, fine. If I stick around for a while, well—at least now I’ve got someone to talk to.” His tone of voice is still blasé, but his gaze falls heavily on Jon, as though asking, Right?

    “Yes,” says Jon. “Yes, of course.”

    ---

    When Jon wakes up from his coma, he finds that while Gerry may still be dead, he’s not exactly gone.

    Summary

    His entire face ached and trying to breathe through his blocked nose only made the ache more prominent. He refused to be the ‘s- word’. He didn’t get the ‘s- word’.

    Summary

    It’s said that there was a time when most people didn’t know about the Entities, the dark Gods and their domains. They say there was a time when they were weaker, hungrier, harder to appease.

    The Archive is a shrine to the Eye, a way to give tribute and curry favor. It is also a way to vent one’s frustration.

    Gerry and Jon met as kids, and they were the best of friends. Until Gerry's mother dies, Gerry disappears, and Jon never sees him again. Jon goes to college, then gets his job at the Magnus Institue and never gives Gerard Keay another thought. (Or so he says.)
    Then everything happens, and Jon is tired. When a familiar face shows up, he almost can't believe it.

    Summary

    I read a fic in which Gerry owned a bookstore and I loved that idea so much that I had to write it myself. So, yeah, this is just "what if Gerry beat cancer and bought a book shop and Michael survived the Distortion and now they're in love".

    This is part of the same au as all my other TMA fics, but can be read as a standalone work.

    Summary

    As time went by, he found himself seeking out some kinds of stories above others. Some made him ache with jealousy—wholesome families, protective siblings. Some felt distant and dull, especially when “coming of age” seemed to mean “find a girlfriend.” But friends—friends could be found. You didn’t have to be born with them. There was still hope, away from home, away from his mother...

    He kept reading stories. Stories were all he had. He fought back the loathing that the touch of a book cover sometimes gave him, tried to fill his dreams with things other than nightmares.

    Summary

    "Jon was there, sat cross-legged in the middle of the floor and looking remarkably like a child caught with their hand in the cookie jar. He was holding something small and fluffy, and it all clicked into place.

    The sound hadn’t been a squeak.

    It had been a very tiny meow."
