    Summary

    “Are you—are you bleeding?” Martin asked, horrified.

    “It was just a prick,” Jon said a bit defensively.

    Martin glanced at the bulletin board behind Jon. “Why were you pinning up papers in the dark?”

    “I didn’t want to wake you with the light.”

     

    Or, Jon suffers a series of minor injuries with the most unfortunate timings, and Martin finds better things to do than sleep.

    Summary

    Elias gets drunk and tries to take advantage of Jon late at night. Unbeknownst to Elias, Martin is staying in the Archives. In a bout of fortuitous insomnia, he comes across the scene and rescues Jon. Jon is grateful, but needs some extra help getting through what he just went through.

    OR

    What if Elias was a jerk so Martin punched him in the face?

    Summary

    An exploration of being trans and having a relationship to hair, surrounded in canon-typical horror bullshit. (Or: I rant about things through Martin a whole lot.)
    Chapter 1 is set through season 1, chapter 2 is set nebulously sometime in season 3, and chapter 3 is set near the end of season 4.

    Summary

    Martin didn't like lying to people, necessarily, but he'd been doing it so often for so long he sometimes wondered if he knew how to stop.

    Summary

    Then, one morning, when Martin wakes up feeling, uh, tender, in the chest area, with mysterious dots of wetness on the front of his sleep shirt, right on top of his nipples, he finally relents. He grabs his phone and starts doing some serious googling.

    And then he wants to scream, because there is, in fact, a word for what he is currently experiencing. And it’s a word he really dislikes, because it makes him feel like the worst sort of type O stereotype, melodramatic and histrionic and manipulative. And apparently there's nothing to do but wait it out, because, while there are suppressants for heat, and abortions for actual pregnancy, there is no medical treatment for a hysterical pregnancy.

    Summary

    Sometimes Martin envies type A people their extensive vocabulary of subvocalizations. They get to use their subvocal suite to communicate perfectly reasonable things, like back off and that's mine and hello sexy. Unlike Martin, whose subvocals exist for the sole purpose of making him sound like the biggest, whiniest baby. Especially when he's coming up on a heat.

    Martin keeps it under wraps as best he can, but there's only so long he can hold it in. So, sometimes, after a long workday, Martin double-checks that everyone else has left the archives, makes sure the door at the top of the stairs is locked, and lets loose a bit. Throws himself a little pity party. He's entitled to it. He's earned it.

    Specifically, it's the kind of pity party that involves relaxing the muscles of his throat, feeling the vibrating thrum building up behind his teeth, and exhaling out a mournful trill of hello? I'm here? Is anyone there? I'm here. I'm all alone.

    Summary

    Martin can also hear...other things. Things he’s only ever read about, before. Things like type A subvocalizations. The first time he heard Sasha growl at Tim for using her fancy-brand coffee creamer it was all Martin could do to stop himself from diving under his desk. Or bending over the desk and begging one of them to fuck him. It’s like an entirely new world has opened up to him. A weird, horny new world he wishes he could leave.

    Sometimes, though. Sometimes it’s a bit interesting. Like the time Jon says "Have you made any more progress on the Hither-Green case?" but the sub-audible hum in his chest says worried, I am worrying, hello, are you okay, are you safe, and without even thinking about it, Martin responds, “Um, I’m fine, thanks.”

    And then Jon gives him such a look of alarm, like Martin has suddenly developed mind-reading powers, or something. Well, it serves him right for badgering Martin until he suffered a spontaneous goddamn sex change, alright, Jon can deal.

    Summary

    "I have pills." Jon blurts out, and it's such a bizarre non-sequitur that Martin worries he really has lost it, for a minute. Martin stares at Jon uncomprehendingly as he continues, "That is, medication. For anxiety. If it would help."

    Martin continues to stare for a moment, and then surprises himself by breaking out into a high, hysterical-sounding laugh. "You know what. Fine. Let's do drugs at work. Why not!" His voice sounds strange to his own ears, creaking and cracking like that one time he had laryngitis.

    Jon rubs his temple, looking like he's already regretting the offer. "Oh, for god's- it's ativan, Martin, not cocaine."

    Summary

    "What, you can just turn it on and off at will, now?"

    "I guess? All I had to do was say what is something you would never choose to tell me-"

    And then something happens. Something sort of...shifts, in Martin’s brain, and then it snags, and then it pulls, and before he even understands what's happening his mouth is opening and he's saying: "Sometimes, when I'm trying to get you to take a break and you're being a stubborn pain in the arse, I fantasize about taking my shirt off and shoving your face right into my tits, just to see if that gets your attention."

    Summary

    The thing is, the thoughts aren't even exactly lewd. It's more like...the way he would see a cashmere scarf on a rack at a store, and he would reach out automatically to touch it, because some part of his hindbrain knew the texture would feel soft and nice in his hand.

    The only difference is, he doesn't usually have these kinds of intrusive thoughts several times a day, and they've never been exclusively directed at a feature of his co-worker's anatomy.

     

    fill for kink meme prompt: Jon has An Inappropriate Thought about Martin’s chest, and then spends months frantically repressing it. Martin, when he finds out, thinks this is absolutely hilarious.

    Summary

    Martin is awoken by a storm at night and decides to head downstairs for a cup of tea.

    ***
    “Martin? Martin… is that you?” Jon asked in a scratchy voice. 

    Damn it! All Martin could do was blink down at him as he collected his thoughts. 

    “Errr, yes. It’s me. Hello Jon,” he mumbled out. Jon’s eyes narrowed on him. They sparkled in the dim light - gorgeous pools of brown which reminded Martin of homemade hot chocolate.

    Living in the archives was not what Martin had expected. Neither was the behaviour of a certain Jonathan Sims.

    Summary

    I wish I were anyone but me, David wished. I wish I had a different face that people would like.

    Martin felt an odd pang of sympathy in his chest. Being anyone other than Martin Blackwood seemed pretty nice. Having a face that didn't come with a mum who refused your visits, or a career based on lies, or that gnawing emptiness that couldn’t quite be filled with tea and daydreams, sounded pretty nice. No. He wasn’t going to cry over some imaginary boy in a dusty old library book.

    Or Martin makes a very big mistake on a late night in the Archives which may or may not involve a Leitner and a certain Head Archivist.

    Summary

    “No, it’s- to be frank, I don’t think I’m cut out for all that.” Martin toyed with the mug in his hands, gazing into it like it held the answers he needed. “I’ve uh, tried to go on a few dates, meet people, that sort of thing. But they all expect something at the end and it just never feels right, I can’t explain it. Like there’s something missing. ”

    In which Jon and Martin are more alike than they thought.
