    Summary

    The automatic doors of the motel slide open soundlessly. He checks in, almost on autopilot, noticing with a twisted pride the appalled look in the receptionist’s eyes. And he’s not even wearing anything that unusual. (Though, to be fair, he’s heard that Poland is a… conservative country.)

    During his years of travel, he’s gotten accustomed to staying at all sorts of motels, so he barely spares this one a second glance. There’s absolutely nothing out of the ordinary about it. Pale carpets, abstract art, tastefully bland décor. The infinite, repetitive simplicity of liminal spaces. All of it, he realizes, reminds him of Michael’s corridors, but he quickly ditches that train of thought, because he hasn’t seen Michael in weeks and neither has he spotted any canary-yellow doors, and what if the whole encounter was just a dream-

    Summary

    At the end of the world, the Archivist stood watch. He stood and he watched for minutes, for hours, for years, for decades, for a time when time did not exist, he watched.

    And then he blinked, and Jonathan Sims was back before everything went wrong. He was back, and he had another chance to protect those he cared for, to protect the world.

    But first, he needs to learn how to act like nothing had changed in the Jon that everyone else knew.

    Besides the constant fear of death, that part is definitely the most difficult.

    (Or, Jon gets sent back in time, chaos ensues.)

    Summary

    “What do you plan on doing to me?” Jon asks, voice shakier than he’d like it to be, but he can’t help it, not when Orsinov is holding him so close to herself.

    Orsinov giggles, the sound chilling to his ears. “Well, I WAS going to wear you, but now… I think I’d prefer a baby rather than a coat!”

    ~~~

    AU where when Nikola Orsinov kidnaps Jon, she discovers that he's a Little, effectively throwing a wrench in her plans. Still, even if it’s unexpected, that doesn’t mean she isn’t going to make the most of this!

    Summary

    Michael usually blamed the Spiral when he made a bad decision, one that was so against all logic that he couldn't quite believe it. It was always there, in the back of his mind, changing what he did, so why not? He wasn't sure if he was going to do the same with this decision. It didn't make sense, of course, but he wasn't sure he was against the idea.

    He had been offered freedom from the Archives, the place that had already tried to kill him, more than he could remember, but he had chosen to stay. Now, he's trapped again, working with Jon, the new archivist, doing his job as he did before the knew the truth of Fear.

    Though, of course, now, he has the Distortion, wearing his own face, to make things just that tiny bit harder.

    Summary

    Maybe he’s better off alone. If he has no-one and nothing to lose, he’ll never have to break down crying on a cemetery bench or crowded airport terminal. He’ll never have to say goodbye. Maybe it’s better off this way. Maybe he’s better off alone.

    Summary

    “Introducing, our newest and truest member, The Poet!”

    Bubblegum-pink hair, an overlarge blue sweater, and soft brown eyes Jon would never be able to forget. He’s likely hallucinating, but the outlandish figure is most definitely Martin. Well, a version of him.

    “Hello, love. I trust you didn’t miss me too much?” He says with a smirk, and Jon gapes at him like a fish.
