    Summary

    They did it. They saved the world.

    But when Jon woke up in a hospital in another universe with no memories of the last several years, a stranger at his bedside, and with no record of his existence, what else could go wrong?

    Well, one Georgina Barker may be able to help with all of those things.

    Summary

    What was a story but a sum of its parts? A beginning and ending, middle plot and the feelings it evoked in the process? The feelings of satisfaction, grief, or catharsis that came after? What was a story if not something that beside the feelings it gave the reader, something that could be left behind when it was over?

    A Guest for Mr. Spider was not a story.

    - Jonathan Sims has just started his second year of university, Gerard Keay has just attempted to sneak off for what may be the final time.

    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    He’s heard the stories. He knows his mother wouldn’t take another step on land if she could help it, not anymore. It took a long time for him to feel comfortable walking alone on the beach without anticipating torches and pitchforks at his first footfall, skin-thieves and scoundrels looking to steal him away.

    Martin’s supposed to avoid humans, but he’s never been great at resisting temptation. In the aftermath of a dreadful storm, he finds himself and his sealskin coat trapped in the home of his mysterious human crush, Jon.

    (Formerly titled It Will Set You Free.)

    Summary

    Despite all the unseen, unsaid, unspoken, unknown, there was just too much for the Eye to watch.

    Summary

    There is something Lonely haunting the empty Blackwood house. He is a strange creature without name, and he has not settled into death with anger or spite, but with a quiet acceptance of a dismal, eternal truth: that he was unloved while alive, and so he shall remain in death.

    That is, of course, until Jonathan Sims.

    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.

    “Have we met before?” the other man says, scrutinising him closely. “You’re from here? From London? Where?”

    “Firstly,” Martin tells him, ticking off his fingers, “no, I’m not. Secondly, fuck off am I telling a stranger where I live. I have lived in London long enough to pick up that much, at least. Thirdly, who are you? And how do I know you?”

    “I—“ the man says, frowning. “I don’t know either. But I know you.”

    Summary

    You see, dear reader, all the best stories are laced with magic.
    When Jon was a child they heard stories of Wordsmiths, those brave and brilliant creatures who wove their words into witchcraft. True magic was hard to come by, true storytelling harder still, and their gifts were treasured and praised in the sunshine-colored memory of Jon’s youth. Jon has long known the tales of the Wordsmiths speaking reality to the shape of their throats, tuning the world to the key of their songs.
    And then King Magnus took the throne.
    The King coveted the Wordsmiths’ magic. Coveted the power they wielded. It was not long before Jon was summoned to the King’s court and found themself proffering up their fear like a feast for the King’s ravenous stare.
    And so we arrive here.

    --
    A (very loose) 1001 Arabian Nights retelling, featuring our beloved storyteller and our favorite sappy poet.

    Summary

    It’s like, as soon as you place yourself in a specific angle, you’re limiting yourself — even with the Beyond. As big as the Beyond is, or the Vast, or any other definition that comes down to infinity, those words aren’t infinite.

    I’m probably talking out of my ass here. Either that, or I’m developing the hottest new science for complete morons. Para-anthropology.

    Note to self: find a name that’s not as hellish to say as para-anthropology.

    No one made space for people like Melanie. She had always preferred building her own.

    Summary

    After Jon rescues Martin from the Lonely, the two of them flee to Daisy's (surprisingly quaint) safehouse in the Scottish highlands. It's a paradise compared to the hell they've had to deal with for the past few years.

    It's not perfect though Jonah Magnus is still out there as are the Hunters and the Not-Them. Daisy is probably lost to the Hunt, Martin is still haunted by the Lonely, and Jon still needs statements to live. And no matter what else happens they'll be forced to return to the institute sooner or later anyway.

    But for the moment they've earned themselves a little peace.
