    Summary

    "So," Martin takes a sip from his mug, the same sunflower one from the night before. "You're a human, then?"

    Jon nods. "Once. It's... Complicated." Jon grabs his thimble and takes a sip. Chamomile. Better than peppermint he thinks, but still not his favorite.

    "It's a curse. Pretty bad one, too." He sets the thimble down. "Not painful, necessarily, not like lots of curses. But... Inconvenient. And it doesn't seem to be leaving me anytime soon."

    "I could help you." Martin offers, and when Jon looks up at him, he seems just as surprised by the offer as Jon does.

    "I mean, well... I'm an apothecary. I could try to heal you, if you'd let me." Martin explains, staring down at his tea.
    _________

    Jon is the victim of an odd curse, and the kind apothecary who saved his life offers to heal him and let him stay in his cottage. How could Jon possibly say no?

    Summary

    “But we would have, would we? Been together I mean.”

    “Huh W-what do you mean?”

    “Face it, Jon. It took almost two years of crisis and trauma to even make us compatible.”

    -------

    In which Martin Blackwood was severely wrong, not that he would know this.

    Summary

    The jacket is brown, and thick, with fleece lining and cuffs. It reaches down to somewhere between the subjects’ waist and its knees.

    It is a winter coat, brand new when bought, the yearly indulgence of a working-class archival assistant a long time ago. Now, it is old, but still holding up well, rarely ever used except on truly Bad days. It looks almost wrong, now; prolonged exposure to an aspect of the fear of not knowing one’s own mind had warped it, but it’s still a brown winter coat, when you get right down to its core.

    Michael needs its coat, today.

    Summary

    As Martin watched the pages burn, he felt his gaze being drawn to those few words that he could still see, unable to look away from them. In particular his eyes seemed drawn to one sentence that hadn't yet begun to blacken and curl;
    "I wouldn’t try too hard to stop reading; there’s every likelihood you’ll just hurt yourself"
    He was only pulled away from the trance it had him under when he heard the sound of a body collapsing on the floor.

    Summary

    Whatever Annabelle Cane had expected when she became Avatar of the Web, it had certainly not been Mother sending her off on matchmaking. Annabelle was rather used to these errands when Mother gave her her most difficult challenge yet. Jonathan Sims and Martin Blackwood.

    Summary

    Jon's tired, jaded, and sick of the entities. Working for Salesa's getting old, and saving random innocents from their untimely consumption by fear gods isn't working out super well, at least until he stops the Lonely from eating a sad young man in a bar bathroom. No good deed goes unpunished, though, and this 'Martin' is really...something.

    Meanwhile, Gerry's trying to balance helping Gertrude save the world with sticking it to the entities and hopefully not turning into their mother. Unclear whether the hot new clown-obsessed archival assistant will help or hinder these pursuits.

    (technically a sequel to 'the warning signs have all been bright and garish', but can absolutely stand alone)

    Summary

    "I'm sorry. I really am," the man began again. "You're… not going to kill me, are you?"
    "What? No!" Jon scrunched his nose in horror. "Of course not."
    "Oh, uh, good." He let out a nervous chuckle. "To be honest, when I first came in and saw all the books and crockery, I thought the owner of the house might be some kind of witch. I'm glad you aren't one. They can be quite creepy, and I frankly don't like the idea of being cursed by one."
    Thunk! Jon hit the butt of his broom against the wooden floor, eyes narrowed. Drily, he corrected, "I am a witch."

    What if Jon was a Witch and Martin was a Runaway Royalty? Funnily enough, it doesn't make their first meeting any less unfortunate and terrible.

    Summary

    “This is the Magnus Institute, not a creative writing course at university. If that doesn’t agree with him, he can leave.” There was a thud and the sound of rifling tapes. “He can take his bloody tea with him.”

    Martin’s fingers tightened on the saucer. Oh.

    -

    Martin knows better than to talk about it. It's fine. He's fine.

    Summary

    “Were you worried?”

    Jon sighs deeply in irritation. “Of course I was.”

    “Me too.” He says it softly and Jon’s not entirely sure he’s supposed to hear it. But they’re not outside, their words don’t get lost between the screaming wind and crashing of the waves. The words are trapped within the cabin, closed and contained with nowhere to go but to bounce from wall to wall. Martin looks at him again. “I get worried about you, too.”

    Summary

    Brendon is alone, or at least it feels that way. Ryan hates him, Spencer is avoiding everyone, and Dallon is in college. He's alone, and he's scared, and he hates it. He's not used to being this insecure and sad - it's scary.

    Spencer is sad. After returning from his summer in rehab, he wants nothing more than to get through his junior year quietly. He just wishes it didn't mean avoiding his friends, the only people he considers family.

    Ryan is scared. Jon is kind of mean, and he regrets what he did to Brendon, he really does. But that can't helped. Thank God for Hayley - he wouldn't be able to survive with out her.
