    Summary

    “I said, archivist, have you met your soulmate?”  it took Jon a minute to process the actual question, rather than the information behind it. And he stiffened, his hands tightening on his empty glass. Michael, sensing that it had hit a sore spot, continued to press.
    “Well? I cannot imagine your multitude of scars makes your soulmate easy to miss archivist~” it laughed again.

    ~~

    Jon doesn't have a soulmate, every scar on his body is his own, and he remembers them perfectly. so his soulmate is either dead, or he never had one....but he doesn't have time to focus on it. things are far too busy for him.
    like the fact that Michael just will not leave him alone.

    and then....something happens, Michael isn't Michael anymore. and Jon has to stick with it, take care of it, and he can't help but feel, that something is very odd about the fact that all of a sudden. he has scars he never remembers getting.

    Summary

    Was there ever a more conducive environment for strangeness? Leitners circulate in the library system like demons through damnation. Hallways twist into impossible configurations. Above everything, a man watches, green-eyed and pensive, all-seeing. Boys who have been teenagers since the nineties repeat the same grade and watch their teachers’ eyes fog over with memories unshaping themselves.

    Or: Jonathan Sims (fifteen years of age), a watchful school, the losing of his lonesomeness, and a whole library of books older than your great-grandfather’s dick.

    Summary

    “I’m eight.” the kid sniffs as if eight was any different from four, maybe not an unspeakable horror then, just a regular horror. “And I heard that the Magnus Institute deals with-” his little nose scrunches, cute. “-spooky things.”

    “Do you have a-” he cracks a grin, and then rethinks it as small hands tighten against their burden.”-spooky thing to deliver?” gods he hopes not, it’s bad enough when adults walk in and lay out all of their baggage, but for a child-

    “There’s a spider in this book.” the kid says solemnly, raising his textbook sized parcel. “It ate Evan Pritchard.” a bloody fucking Leitner. Of course an eight year old would find a murder spider book. “This seemed like the best place to bring it.”

    Summary

    “He just showed up the other day for the first time in, so far as I can tell, ever, and no one thinks it’s even a little bit weird? Something’s not right.”

    Martin paused for a moment.

    Jon was, of course, hoping in vain that his pointing it out would bring some sudden revelation, and then the two would set out with some half-brained scheme to Expose Michael For What He Really Was. They would go and tell Tim, who would tell Sasha, and it would be rather like old times: the four of them charging recklessly into something bigger than they understood, and coming away with some wild memory of their recent escapade, or something new and terrible and grand to ponder, or the truth, or whatever it was they went looking for.

    But Martin just said, “Jon, are you sure you’re feeling alright?” and Jon sighed.

    There is something in the tunnels underneath the school.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood had finished his apprenticeship under Annabelle Cane and was, hopefully, ready to be a witch in his own right. He had just moved to idyllic Magnuston surrounded on all sides with forests and possible dangers and it was now his job to protect this town from everything else out there. Armed with herbal teas and a talent for knitting Martin felt at least somewhat prepared.

    What he wasn't prepared for was Jonathan Sims, the town's prickly librarian who seemed to know a lot more about the fairies then he'd expect and who Martin was hopelessly infatuated with. Things were getting complicated fast but Martin should be able to manage it all, especially with the help of his coven.

    Just remember, don't leave the path in forest and beware the Lords and Ladies.

    Summary

    He traced a fingertip over the place where its heart should have been, promised it that it was good for him. It said I believe you, but it was a liar. He kissed it and the lie was in his mouth. The lie and the wanting, the quiet desperation to speak the words and have them be true. He told it again. It was sweet.

    vaguely based on the song "Artichoke" by Charming Disaster. peculiarly angsty. but also there's a lot of kissing.

    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

    Ok, so, maybe Martin lied a little too well on his CV. It's not like he expected to become Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute, though! Nor did he expect to fall for two of his assistants, have to stop those assistants from getting themselves killed for the sake of not ending the world, develop powers alongside them, or have to find a way to prevent the apocalypse... Lying gets you nowhere, kids, remember that.
