    Summary

    Martin’s mother has taken ill, and the only thing that might cure her is magic. When a star falls to earth and Martin witnesses it crash in the distant forest beyond his village, he sets out to retrieve it. What he doesn't anticipate is that the star is not actually fallen rock - it's a person named Jon, and Jon is being hunted.

    Martin's life is turned upside down as his simple mission quickly becomes a quest to protect Jon from those who seek to claim his heart for their own. Along the way, he and Jon both discover that there are actually many ways you can win someone's heart, not all of them so literal.

    In short, a Stardust AU.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims has a secret, which really isn’t all that surprising. Everyone has secrets, everyone has troubled pasts, and everyone has things that they’d really rather hide.

    In no place does this come into play more often than in the Crew of the Starship Aurora, who happen to be Jon’s secret in the first place.

    or, an AU where a mishap with an eldritch entity leads the Mechanisms to being...somewhat entangled in the life of one Jonathan Sims.

     not abandoned!

    Summary

    Jonah Magnus has been planning a great ritual for nearly 200 years and he finally has it in his grasp. He's learned how to channel all of the powers into this world and, though he may have slipped up a bit, he has his candidate. Finally, the world will be his.

    At least, it would, if it weren't for the Youtubers that have suddenly taken an interest in the Magnus Institute.

    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

    Basically, MAG200 was rough, so I have decided to write a S1 polycule fic that will hopefully make everyone feel better. Very fluffy and domestic.

    Just know that they're all dating except for Martin/Sasha, who are in a QPR. They work at the archives, but there are no fear entities.

    I'll try to update every Sunday, feel free to leave suggestions or bug me until the next update, hah!

    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

    "I haven't played the guitar in years," Gerry protested weakly. They knew there was no way Mike was going to budge on this, but a man could dream.

    "It's like riding a bike. Once you learn you never really forget," Mike said, taking another sip of his tea. He made a face; it had probably gone cold by now. That or he put too much sugar into it. Mike hated sweets almost as much as he hated the floral tea Gerry liked. Tea snob.

    "I never learned how to ride a bike," Gerry said, though his voice was clearly resigned.

    "Sounds like a you problem," Mike said, leaning onto the table. Gerry kicked him, and the blonde cursed under his breath. Gerry would pay for that later, but in the moment it was very satisfying.

     

    In which Gerry and Mike find love, friendship, and the power of Music! (And incredible acts of violence. Can't forget the violence!)

    Summary

    As the Head Archivist at the Magnus Institute, Sasha has been having a rough time, dealing with the "Flesh Hive" or whatever. At least the thing that calls itself "Michael" was willing to give them some information... but it's not the only one with an interest in what happens at the Institute.

    Featuring Avatar Jon, Archivist Sasha, Bastard Elias, and the statement of Joe Spooky, regarding sinister happenings in downtown.

    Summary

    [ON INDEFINITE HIATUS BECAUSE THE OCEAN LITERALLY STARTED BOILING FOR REAL WTF]

    Taryn doesn't move a muscle as he approaches. "You're in exactly the right place," Annabelle had said on the phone. "If you stay with them, you will be safe. For a while. Try to make sure he doesn't kill you first." Taryn would have said something in response, but their trachea was filled with mud, and the only way they wanted to talk the person on the other end of the call was with their fists.

    "What are you?" Jon plants in front of them, a sound like faraway thunder underscoring his words.

    Taryn's scalp tingles the way it might when you’re all alone at night, but you feel like something is watching you. But they aren’t afraid—just confused.

    "I guess I don't understand the question," Taryn says.

    --

    Jon and Martin meet a new avatar of the Eye (they think) who might have the power to help stop the Apocalypse (they hope).
