    Summary

    And for a second he can hear the door sing and it’s so jarring and nonsensical and, seemingly out of nothing, from it spills a man. Weak and shaky and holding onto the neon frame like he’s holding onto his damn dear life.

    “Can anyone tell me what year it is?” The man asks and then immediately collapses. The door closes behind him and then it’s just. Gone. Like it had never been there in the first place. Maybe it hadn’t.

    Tim shakes his head as if shaking off the door’s existence and then immediately exclaims in horror “is that Jon!?”

    Jon scoffs. “Well, Tim, seeing how I’m literally right here—”

    Summary

    Welcome to the Magnus Institute, a creature feature where representatives from every Entity collaborate to preserve and investigate artefacts, examine public testimonials, conduct paranormal research, and yes, occasionally exterminate. There are our rapscallions we're fond of, such as that silly Distortion, always getting up to hijinks and light maiming. But then there are our liabilities, such as Nikola Orsinov and Jude Perry, who really could use some premeditated murder, which our team captain Basira Hussain is more than happy to arrange. We also must eliminate any and all manifestations of the Extinction, because we're trying to have a nice time here.

    Feat. Head Archivist and Resident Vampire Jonathan Sims and his Archival Staff, Task Force Captain and Resident Phoenix Basira Hussain and her Squad, and Director Elias Bouchard, which we have no idea what the fuck he is but he sure is something. With special appearances from several departments to include Research speared by Peter Lukas, and our pool of consultants, to include our favourite podcaster and avatar of The End, Georgie Barker.

    Step right in and mind the bloodshed and cassettes.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood can't exactly say that his life is normal. It started out normal enough, but he's pretty sure that becoming a pseudo-immortal space pirate after being ripped open by a vampire doctor is a bit "out there". But he hasn't been home in centuries, and after the events of the Bifrost Incident, he really just wants to return to the mundane for a bit. Maybe he can tie up some loose ends while he's at it.

    The new archiving job and extra-spooky supernatural insanity wasn't exactly what he'd had in mind.

    ***

    An AU that explores Martin as a Mechanism during the TMA timeline.

    Summary

    He fell into a deep bow, smiling the whole while. “I’m the ringmaster, of course.”

    “Is that skin— is it yours?” Old wood groaned as the Archivist shifted his weight. “Originally, I mean.”

    “It is!” the ringmaster said as he swooped back upright. “Nikola decided I wore it well, so she let me keep it. Why do you ask?”

    The Archivist gave him another once-over. “You just… you look familiar. Like someone I know.”

    On relearning, reconnecting, and redefining.

    Summary

    They did it, they didn't know how but they managed to go back. Okay, Helen did help but the point still stood that now hey had the chance to redo what had happened, redo the lead up to the apocalypse and prevent it this time.
    Now they had a small list which included saving everyone, stopping these rituals and maybe causing a little (or a lot) of chaos along the way.

    --------
    A fix-it-fic where Jon and Martin go back to simultaneously save and mess up a bunch of stuff.

    Summary

    Instead of retiring to open a book shop, Gerry ends up working at a flower shop run by American lesbians in London. This leads to a brush with the Distortion, who just wants to buy some lilies, the Magnus Institute finding out he’s still alive, and... well, a normal life was never really in the cards for the likes of Gerard Keay, was it?

    Oh, and those lesbians who run the flower shop? There’s more to them than meets the eye.

    (No knowledge of Maniac Mansion required; I take lots of liberties to slot it into TMA’s universe.)

    Summary

    When Jonathan Sims returned from his six week absence from the Archives, the archival assistants were quietly relieved. The Archivist was never absent from the Archives for this long, and so maybe statement givers would return to their eloquence. However: his voice was right, his face was right, but his eyes were glassy. This was not the Archivist. This was a dress rehearsal.

    Title from Lose It by Oh Wonder.

    Summary

    It had made him feel sufficiently shitty, he thought, as he typed out a professional acceptance note on his phone. Dejected, he accepted the shitty, horrible, fucked up offer because he was broke, and because he was broken.

    He dragged his leaden limbs to bed, and worried. He had a weekend to prepare for his first week working at, not for, The Magnus Institute.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims has been marked from his first moment... Stillborn, but so very wanted... The End brings him back, and the Eye isn't so keen on letting him die again.

    There's many ways for an archivist to be marked.

    Summary

    Some seriously weird shit has gone down at the Magnus Institute, and the police have put their best, most ruthless pair of detectives on the case. Basira just wants catch the idiots responsible (and possibly kill them, you know, if she and Daisy are feeling it) so she can go the fuck home, but unfortunately that's much, much easier said than done.
