    Summary

    "Martin was aware of folktales, of stories, legends, and myths. He was aware of local superstition and the talk of Fae those miles and miles away in a town close enough to be the only one that would bring stock on relief days. Martin was aware of the large coat in his closet that he couldn’t bear to touch. Martin was aware of the side-eyed glances from his mother and of the coat that only contributed to her yelling and screaming and fighting. And Martin did not want to take away this man’s gray coat, not even if it was ruining his already ruined furniture. And as Martin was thinking all of these things in the thick fog that laced his thoughts, the man sat up too quickly for his liking. And as the man sat up with a clipped shout of confusion, Martin saw his eyes which had snapped open.

    And his eyes were dark, like his skin, like the sea. They were dark, darker than the pupil of his eyes, they must have been as you couldn’t see it in the middle of his iris. The man drew his coat around his chest, baring his teeth in a wince or a snarl. Martin couldn’t tell where one expression began and the other one ended."

    Selkie Martin and Jon AU but with lighthouses!

    Summary

    Do you like lonelyeyes? Do you like parental lonelyeyes?! Then this is the place for you. In this story we have two single dads figuring shit out and falling in love while looking after their cute kiddos while their families and friends have to see them pine for each other.

     

    Later during the day, when he is about to park home after picking up the kids, he sees a moving truck at the house next to theirs. Jon and Tim instantly stick their chocolate covered faces to the window, curious little things, to watch.
    Peter stares a little too, but ultimately he makes them go inside. Better to let whoever is moving in their own space and not hover like a weirdo. Their last neighbour was not very happy with his kids' tendencies to watch people and cause trouble. But to be fair to them, even Peter thought that Jurgen was an annoying prick.

    Summary

    “Who’s this?” Another lecturer asks, approaching the table with his coffee and pastry, and the woman calls back, “Jon’s boyfriend, stopping by to pick him up.”
    “Oh, well, I’m not really—” Martin starts, but then he looks over at Jon, who is smiling widely, face alight with happiness, and stops like he’d walked into a brick wall.
    “Yes,” Jon says simply, squeezing Martin’s hand, then raising it to press a kiss to Martin’s knuckles.

    Jon likes it when people call Martin his boyfriend. Martin…doesn’t.

    Summary

    Martin starts his new job as a librarian at The Magnus Academy and is quite intrigued when he meets the quirky, cute psychology professor on his first day.
    ---
    [Martin] pulled out the card in the front pocket and couldn't help the fascinated look that crossed his features. He runs his fingers over the slanted handwriting in the checkout log. The library doesn't use this method anymore - they haven't for years. It was as simple as scanning the barcode taped to the inside of the book.

    𝘑𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘯 𝘚𝘪𝘮𝘴.

    Martin felt himself smile as another wave of curiosity pooled over him.

    Summary

    "What is a monster, anyway?" Martin glanced up at Jon, eyebrows slightly raised. "Just something that doesn't look like we expect. We don't call a wolf a monster, but a /werewolf,/ well. That's monstrous, right?"

    "What's truly monstrous, though? Not a wolf, that's just an animal. Humans, well… we can do all sorts of awful things to each other, so yeah, some humans can act like monsters, but we’re not /all/ like that. So why do we just assume that the werewolf is a monster? Because it doesn't look like something that we think is 'normal?' Because we assume that any human who gets all that predatory nature in them would /have/ to run around killing and eating people? I mean, fair assumption, maybe, but what if the monster /doesn't/ do that?"

    Martin looked at Jon, blue eyes quite direct. "What if they, say, shut themself away in an ancient castle, avoid people entirely, try /so hard/ to protect people from their own perceived monstrosity that they push away the only person they ever interact with, in an attempt to protect him from becoming a monster himself?"

    ---

    A Beauty and the Beast AU. Jon is not a werewolf, but he /is/ a monster. Martin loves him anyway.

    For the Summer in the Archives event.

    Summary

    Not too long after Jon and Basira return from Ny-Ålesund, a Leitner that forces its reader to always tell the truth works its way into the Institute, and it's only a matter of time before our dear Archivist accidentally (well. Sort of.) finds himself cursed by it. Any question asked of him produces a fully truthful answer, and the more he tries to resist, the more honest and personal the confessions become. Can he and the Archives staff fix this while he still has some secrets left to himself? Or will they succumb completely to their oldest and toughest enemy: direct communication.

    Summary

    (Or, the three times Jon hid his tears in front of his assistants, and the one time he didn't.)

    Jon has never liked crying. Of course, in this instance, his distaste for the action doesn’t negate the fact that it still happens far more often than he'd like. In front of his assistants, no less, because the universe simply refuses to give Jon a break.

    Summary

    Once upon a time:

    “Flowers and a kiss for you.” Martin placed the flowers on Tim’s desk and the kiss on his cheek. “Flowers and a kiss for you.” He handed a reddened Jon the flowers, kissing him smack on the lips. “And flowers and a kiss for you.” He placed the last bundle of flowers—pink daffodils—on Sasha’s desk with a kiss to her hair.

    ... and everything that comes before and after.

    Summary

    "So, you and Jon, huh?" Melanie says. "Never thought I'd be the one to say it, but good for you."
    "Sorry, me and Jon what?"
    "Dating," Melanie says slowly, like she can't believe he's being this dense. "You and Jon dating. Congratulations."
    "Oh, uh, so the thing is, I'm not sure if we are, actually," Martin says, rubbing the back of his head.
    "You're not sure?" Melanie asks incredulously. "You're living together, sharing clothes--well, Georgie says he's wearing some of your jumpers, at least--sleeping in the same bed, and you're not sure if you're dating?"
    "We just," Martin stammers, "we haven't really talked about it, all right?"

    After Jonah's ritual fails, severing Jon's connection to the Beholding, Jon and Martin try to put the pieces of their lives back together. Adjusting to normal life again after everything is hard, and exploring their new relationship is even harder, especially as Martin realizes he might be aro-spec.

    Summary

    Meeting an old acquaintance again can be a bit of a culture shock. Instantly clicking again with your old ride or die… is a different sort of shock entirely.

    Jon Sims has an unlooked-for run-in with the old flame of his youth. Still unmistakably the full-blood goth Jon fell for all those years ago.
    Gerry Delano really hadn't expected to run into Jon Sims of all people, either. Jon who changed quite a bit, from the looks of it. But that's life.
    People change over the years, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Jon settled as a librarian-slash-archivist, has a boyfriend, and leads a calmer life now. Gerry themself changed as well, after all.

    “Settling into domesticity… it’s not me, not what I want or need. Sure I want a steady life but I don’t want a calm or quiet life, at all. That's the thing. Life's different when he's around. And we both know I like different.”

    Summary

    Jon spent the first few years of his life bathed in the rosewater-saffron scent of language. He does not remember his father, scarcely remembers his mother’s face, but he remembers her voice, dripping honeyed and sweet like warm tea and nabat and singing lullabies the color of roses, remembers not the words she said but the sounds they made, the shape of them in her voice, the weight of them in his ears. Jon spent the first few years of their life with twin languages on their tongue, twin voices in their ear, long before Beholding claimed them and gave them hundreds.

    Or, a look at Jonathan Sims, language, culture, and Beholding.

    Summary

    Tucked among the rolling hills of Dorset lies a little village where everyone knows everyone. The name Elias Bouchard is a prominent one—he owns the manor house by the river, has been married 13 years, and is the reigning champion of the town bake-off. Who could blame Jon for having a tiny crush?

    For Elias’s birthday, Jon makes something very special.

    Perhaps he’ll get something in return.
