    Summary

    Jon's eyes shot open with a sharp gasp. His chest ached but the pain was already quickly fading. He was....he was seated at his desk? Why was he at his desk? That wasn't right....was it? He frowned and looked around. Everything appeared to be in place, except for him. He wasn't supposed to be here. He could feel it. Something important had happened.

    Summary

    “There is another catch-22 you may be overlooking, as well.”

    There's a saying: When G-d closes a door, he opens a window. There is always hope.

    You only need to consider the fall.

    Summary

    He wants you to kiss him, a very irritated voice inside of Gerry says. Maybe if he were smart he'd follow that instinct, but he's too absorbed in taking stock of what he sees. The fact is, those same marks he'd had on him long ago are as strong as ever—the Stranger, the Desolation, the End. It's not like one victory would make them fade.

    "Your hands are cold," Tim says, but when Gerry steps back, he looks like he wishes he could take the comment back. "Are you still…human?"

    "I honestly don't know," Gerry laughs ruefully. "I don't know how I could be. Terminus had me for so long. They don't release you once they've got a taste."

    "Yeah," Tim mutters. "I heard your tape."

    "Is that a problem?" Gerry says.

    Tim looks at him, eyes moving from side to side as if he can read a story written on Gerry's face. They settle on his mouth, then flick back up to his eyes.

    "No. I don't think so," he says.

    --

    No longer one of the trapped dead, Gerry saves Tim from death during the Unknowing. In its wake, the two of them grapple with who they've become.

    Summary

    Really, Tim is wonderful—loyal to the core, compassionate, creative, and bright. But Tim can also be high maintenance, sensitive, combative, and self-destructive. That's not the kind of thing that just goes away with time. It's a part of him, a part that Gerry accepts along with everything else.

    It’s not that he doesn’t mind; he minds quite a bit, actually. But however he feels about it, he also has a knack for handling Tim's moods. Sometimes that means handling him gently.

    Sometimes that means handling him not so gently.

    Summary

    Throughout the years, Tim and Gerry have kissed a number of times.
    Tim enjoys it, and Gerry does it as easily as breathing. They kiss with the ease of money changing hands; like it’s Gerry's chosen currency for remunerating their loved ones for each act of love or kindness.
    Tim honestly thought there was little true spark to it, until recently.

    Summary

    A jolt of hope passes through Gerry. "You're thinking of giving up the search then?"

    He regrets the words almost immediately as he watches Tim's expression falter. 

    "There's nothing wrong with that," Gerry adds. "These aren't the sort of things that one man can sort out on his own."

    "Well, I'm not really on my own, am I?" Tim says, looking him straight in the eyes. His are a deep brown that seem to betray every feeling he has. The feeling he appears to be having right now is entirely too trusting, more trusting than Gerry deserves.

    --

    In the wake of Danny Stoker's death, Tim meets Gerry Keay. Gerry quickly becomes his closest ally, until life (and death) get in the way.

    Summary

    Gerry isn't the best at letting himself be taken care of, but more than a year with Tim has taught him to accept comfort.
    Especially when part of that comfort is sex.

    Summary

    "Um," Jon clears his throat again. "I was wondering if we could speak alone, actually?"

    Martin makes an agitated sound and leans into Jon, whispering harshly.

    “Jon, all of the vendors ended up at a sex dungeon. Sasha's got her hands full with Tim because he keeps crying, and suddenly I am supposed to coordinate everything. So if anything goes wrong it's completely my fault, and Sasha will throw me off the side of the building. Can this wait?"

    It’s Tim and Gerry’s wedding day, and while Martin and Sasha try to avert one disaster after another, Gerry tries to help Jon figure out how to propose to Martin.

    Summary

    "I've always been the good-time guy," Tim finally says. "At work. With friends. With people who want to fuck me. 'Tim's always good for a laugh, just invite him out every few months then never talk to him in-between.' 'Tim's good for a bonk. Don't worry he never gets attached.' 'Tim will take it in stride. He always does.'"

    Having always used humor and sex as a deflection and a wall to keep people out, Gerry knows exactly what he means. He can't say he has a ton of people who would drop everything to be there when he's hurting. Not that he would drop his own act long enough to actually ask for the help anyway.

    He realizes this isn't at all what he thought. What he's seeing right now is something rare, an overlooked treasure. His favorite kind.

    "People always want me around to be fun and then they never want to be around me when I'm like..." Tim gestures at himself, "this."

    Before he can control himself, before he can suppress the thought, Gerry thinks, I do.

    Followed quickly by, Oh fuck.

    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

    “It can only chase one of us at a time.”

    There is strength in enduring, but it becomes something else when we contribute to our own slow disappearance.

    On your guard. Someone has to value your life.

    Summary

    Timothy Stoker had a super power. Since his earliest memories, Tim tried so hard at everything. Friends, school, family, he worked himself to the bone to be good. He made people smile, got good grades, kept his little brother out of trouble, and Tim’s parents were so proud. His super power was that everyone thought it looked easy. The older he got the less Tim recognised himself in other people’s descriptions of him. Silly Tim, easy-going Tim, random and funny and a good-time. Still, it didn’t matter really because it made people happy.

    Tim liked it when other people were happy.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ash Blackwood came back in time and shifted fate just a little. Gerard Keay lives and interferes with the archives to protect Sasha and the others from the worst of what was to come. Even after she is gone, there's still a lot of fallout for Tim to face.

    Summary

    So then one day Gerry Keay realises he's being followed. It's been a rough few years but he's finally free of Mary and Gertrude has trusted him to help her research the Unknowing. So when some girl turns up knowing way too much, stinking of spiders, and calling herself Sasha-Gerard Blackwood... he's not sure he's got the bandwidth. But he also doesn't think he has a choice.

    * * * *

    Ash didn't mean to travel back in time 25 years. She'd screwed up badly and lost both her dads to horrors they thought they'd left behind. She'd made a deal of desperation with the Web but she assumed it was sending her back a day. Now she's stuck in a London she barely knows with no one to turn to, except maybe a man she'd never met but who her Appa had wanted to remember enough to name her for him. Gerard Keay.

    Summary

    Months after the collapse of Leitner Press, the gang gets back together for a Christmas (if you ask Tim) or Yule (if you ask Gerry) Party at Pinhole Books.

    Jon has a hard time enjoying it due to the ghostly presence of Jonah Magnus and a very large man with horns, which apparently only he can see.

    And is it just Martin, or are Jon and Oliver Banks getting awfully cozy?

    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
