    Summary

    Lyfrassir Edda had loved the Mechanisms once - truly loved them all with their entire heart. But they were mortal; they knew that relationship would not survive the test of time. So they left in pursuit of a quiet life; a simple life. Earth was by far the last place anyone would look for Lyf and besides, how hard could it be to work as an archivist?

    Summary

    Despite what people may have expected, the Mechanisms did observe some common societal traditions - and not only those that they individually couldn’t quite shake.
    One of these things was marriage.
    To be fair, the Mechanisms did not observe marriage in a particularly common manner. Their observance of it could also be traced to one (or two) members of the crew in particular.
    Tim liked being married, you see. He (or ze or she or occasionally ae) enjoyed being able to point at someone and say that that was his spouse. He took great pleasure in catching sight of a ring someone picked out particularly for him on his left hand. He felt a thrill of excitement every time he signed his name as something more than Timothy.

    Summary

    ( and there is absolution in my songs. )

    if the lennies were getting pushed out of their trench, sometimes they’d cut the piping, so it’d flood you out, or you’d be stuck in three feet of mud when they sent you a nice little goodbye present by way of microwave. tim supposed bertie must have taken a shortcut by route of one of the communication trenches the poor bastards from the seventy-third had been turned to soup in.

    trench soup. three parts muddy water, one part charred corpsemeat, microwaved to a crisp. complain all you like about the moon war, but at least it kept the menu broad.

    Summary

    ---

    Jonny immediately drew his gun and shot her in the chest. She gasped, pain bursting from where the bullet hit her. Blood stained her shirt, but the wound was slowly closing up. "Ow." She muttered, glaring at him.

    She spread her gleaming, metal wings, staring him in the eyes as the wound healed fully.

    Summary

    Lyfrassir didn’t know what they had expected, being the last surviving person of a cosmically destroyed galaxy. There hadn’t been much planning involved other than ‘Run’. So, it’s lucky that the narrative finds it suiting to find them. Just in time.

    Summary

    Lyf lets the Black Box slip from their grasp. It clatters to the floor, with Lyf following soon after, sinking to their knees in despair.

    The Ratatosk Express, the prisoners, the Black Box, the Bifrost…

    All of it happened so fast and there wasn't a thing they could do to stop it. 

    -----

    Or: Marius convinces the mechs to go back for Lyf. They all agree it's just until they can get the story of the Bifrost out of them, but when someone is stuck on a spaceship fleeing a rainbowy hell with you long enough. You start to get attatched.

    Summary

    Basically this is an AU where (Inspector 2nd class) Lifrasir Edda (New Midgard Transport Police) escapes their burning world and eventually ends up on Earth (Terra) and ends up joining the Magnus Institute as Jonathan Sims.

    Ultimately with some relatively involved pre-story concerning how Lifrasir even gets to earth in the first place. I intend to follow along relatively consistently with The Magnus Archive podcast, so consider this a bit of an experiment in letting my hyperfixations run the show for a bit.

    Content warnings will be in the notes before each chapter, feel free to comment with additional content warnings if you feel it needs them.
