    Summary

    It's the 66th Hunger Games, and Jonathan Sims has been chosen. He's not built for this; scrawny, barely skilled in sewing, reads in his spare time - not a killer.
    His mentor seems to agree, and Jon doesn't have high hopes.

    But the Capitol holds more than death; something entrenched in its core, a secretive president, familiar faces and new bonds, and a flicker of hope.

    Summary

    At the end of the world, the Archivist stood watch. He stood and he watched for minutes, for hours, for years, for decades, for a time when time did not exist, he watched.

    And then he blinked, and Jonathan Sims was back before everything went wrong. He was back, and he had another chance to protect those he cared for, to protect the world.

    But first, he needs to learn how to act like nothing had changed in the Jon that everyone else knew.

    Besides the constant fear of death, that part is definitely the most difficult.

    (Or, Jon gets sent back in time, chaos ensues.)

    Summary

    ISAIAH
    Martin, you should know… being holed up in your little cabin won’t save you forever. You’ve been here for, what, five weeks now? Two weeks ago, the world could have ended. But, it didn’t. And now, everyone wants a grab at the Archivist.

    MARTIN
    But… why? What do they want with him, what— what would they have to gain?

    ISAIAH
    I dunno, really. It might be because of anger, might be for revenge, might be for something different entirely. The point is, the Archivist is like an elastic waiting to snap. He’s got all this potential energy. One thing sets him off… there’s no telling what he could be capable of.


    Elias’ ritual fails, and Jon and Martin allow themselves to breathe again. But the more time passes, the more horrible things rear their heads… and the more dangers Martin takes upon himself to keep them from reaching the Archivist.
    Between impending threats to the safehouse, a consistent flow of statements and archaic poetry, and an ocean of unknowns, there is only so much you can do.

    Summary

    A tape recorder manifests inside the house at Night Street, getting Callum's statement on tape. He also puts on a necklace that was dropped on the floor, cancelling the Dark within him and helps him see what he's truly become.

    He makes a choice, even if it may be his demise...

    Sometimes you've got to do dangerous things, even if you're scared. Because it's the right thing to do.

    Summary

    "So the Archivist ate Jon," Melanie starts, eyes fixed on weak lightbulb so they won't fall on the scalpel in her hand. "That's what you said."

    "I said I am Jon. And that I ate him." The Archivist turns a page, not even looking up. "Metaphysically, for the most part."

    "Sure. Whatever." She exhales out the urge to swing the scalpel in an arc, to follow through like a conductor until it meets skin. It would be so easy. "So if...if the Slaughter eats me. I'll Become. Something. Or. Or it Becomes me."

    "Not exactly." The Archivist taps the rocky floor, glancing over at her. She doesn't dare tear her eyes from the lightbulb, not with the scalpel in her hand. "The Slaughter might eat you. But to really Become, you'd have to eat the Slaughter back."

    -

    Jon wakes up four months early. This is not necessarily a good thing.

    Summary

    It wasn’t even that Martin didn’t believe in fairy tales, within reason of course.

    It was only that fairy tales didn’t happen to him.

    But once he makes the mistake of lying his way into working for the illustrious Magnus Institute, dedicated to debunking the frivolities of fairy stories and the grand lie that is the tyranny of magic, he finds himself caught up in the grips of a very real, very dark curse and the Beast it has made of its head Archivist. Together, they must work to unravel the secrets of the universe, the origins of magic and fear itself, and to learn to trust in one another to break the curse that only strengthens its grip on the archives and The Archivist with every day that passes.

    If only Martin can first survive the metaphysical horrors lurking in every corner the archives, weather the tempest of The Archivist's temper, and perfect the science of tea well enough to see his new boss for who he truly is...

    Summary

    “I don’t know what you are or what the fuck you’re doing in my classroom,” she growled. “But if you don’t close that fucking door and leave this place this instant you’ll regret it.”

    “Oh, Jon,” said the monster in the doorway. It curled a set of corkscrew claws in her direction, beckoning. “I like this one! Reminds me a little of your dear little friend. The one Michael liked so very much.”

    Summary

    “What do you plan on doing to me?” Jon asks, voice shakier than he’d like it to be, but he can’t help it, not when Orsinov is holding him so close to herself.

    Orsinov giggles, the sound chilling to his ears. “Well, I WAS going to wear you, but now… I think I’d prefer a baby rather than a coat!”

    ~~~

    AU where when Nikola Orsinov kidnaps Jon, she discovers that he's a Little, effectively throwing a wrench in her plans. Still, even if it’s unexpected, that doesn’t mean she isn’t going to make the most of this!

    Summary

    “Introducing, our newest and truest member, The Poet!”

    Bubblegum-pink hair, an overlarge blue sweater, and soft brown eyes Jon would never be able to forget. He’s likely hallucinating, but the outlandish figure is most definitely Martin. Well, a version of him.

    “Hello, love. I trust you didn’t miss me too much?” He says with a smirk, and Jon gapes at him like a fish.
