    Summary

    "Martin was aware of folktales, of stories, legends, and myths. He was aware of local superstition and the talk of Fae those miles and miles away in a town close enough to be the only one that would bring stock on relief days. Martin was aware of the large coat in his closet that he couldn’t bear to touch. Martin was aware of the side-eyed glances from his mother and of the coat that only contributed to her yelling and screaming and fighting. And Martin did not want to take away this man’s gray coat, not even if it was ruining his already ruined furniture. And as Martin was thinking all of these things in the thick fog that laced his thoughts, the man sat up too quickly for his liking. And as the man sat up with a clipped shout of confusion, Martin saw his eyes which had snapped open.

    And his eyes were dark, like his skin, like the sea. They were dark, darker than the pupil of his eyes, they must have been as you couldn’t see it in the middle of his iris. The man drew his coat around his chest, baring his teeth in a wince or a snarl. Martin couldn’t tell where one expression began and the other one ended."

    Selkie Martin and Jon AU but with lighthouses!

    Summary

    He died that August 2nd evening at approximately 11:30 P.M. in Martin's quivering embrace. Jon, stubborn as ever (and foolish, so damn foolish), refused hospital and treatment to his last breath. His wishes spoken with finality, Jon demanded the equally slow and irksome fate of dying in plain sight.
    ***

    Jon dies. Martin fixes that.

    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

    Jon looses his humanity and goes back to fix things, totally unrecognizable, with new instincts, and the same love for martin who is concerned about this development even if this monster is endearing.

    Summary

    Sasha fixed Tim and Martin with a glare that was deathly serious. “But why should that stop us? It is— or was, I suppose, given... everything— our literal job to investigate supernatural events. If the police won’t figure out what happened to the Institute, we’ll do it. Doesn’t everyone deserve that? Doesn’t Jon deserve that?”

    In the face of an unyielding apocalypse, the being that was once Jonathan Sims has a final, desperate idea. The archival assistants pick up the pieces.

    Summary

    In the smoldering remains of Jonah Magnus' estate, a coven of witches discovers a strange creature trapped within a summoning circle — an Archivist, weakened from imprisonment and neglect. In an effort to rehabilitate the Archivist, the coven sends him off to be taken under the care of one Martin Blackwood, a witch who has earned himself a reputation for dealing with all manner of magical creatures.

    Summary

    You find yourself in a precious garden, being the party guest to a very curious man with shining green eyes that serves you delicious tea, sandwiches and desserts, while telling you an interesting love story:

    Jon plummets to the past or maybe an alternate reality. Here, memoryless, he finds the only person he has any recollection of: Jonah Magnus.

    As Jon rediscovers his powers, learns and teaches Jonah about the Dread Powers, he would find himself in a slow simmer relationship with the man, while trying to navigate the Victorian Era, or something akin.

    Summary

    "What year is it?"

    His tongue is dry and Jonah still feels paralyzed. There is a sudden pressure at his throat, a ribbon wrapped around his muscles that tugs upward, forcing his lips to move in a way that he knows is supernatural.

    “May 29th, 1803,” he gasps and clutches at his neck to fight the sensation even as it goes slack and begins to fade.

    Between death and a do-over, Jon would have tentatively chosen ‘do-over’. Of course, even when he and Martin get another chance, things become complicated and now they are faced with how to save this new reality while living with their former arch nemesis pre-avatarhood and whilst adjusting to the new time period. Chaos, as expected, ensues.

    Summary

    “It came from inside me,” Jon says needlessly as he holds out the slim feather for Elias to inspect. It is so small, barely half the length of the fingers Elias uses to pluck it up, to turn it this way and that so it shines white in the stark kitchen lighting.

    “The Vast, perhaps,” Elias muses aloud, ignoring the way Jon fidgets for his lost attention. Jon presses a hand to his throat and pushes gently at the line of his windpipe, trying to feel the stretching emptiness, the wide and endless expanse opening inside him. It makes his head ache and his mouth taste like saltwater.

    ***

    Something is growing inside Jon.

    Summary

    After Jon brought the Fears into the world, an incessant question wouldn’t stop gnawing on him: Is Martin only pretending to love me? Because how could Martin’s affections not deteriorate, faced with what Jon’s done. Were those soft smiles fake, behind them lay disgust? Was the sole reason he stayed by Jon’s side was that he didn’t have anywhere else to go? It was all ridiculous, Jon knew that…but he wanted to know that. It would be fine, for him to sneak a peak, just once. So, he looked.

    Summary

    Ever since accepting the role as Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute, Jonathan Sims has been rather thoroughly cursed. He is unable to leave the institute walls without transforming into a horrific monster, which in of itself wouldn't be that big a deal if it weren't for the fact that Martin saw him.

    Jon lives a double life and accidentally befriends/falls for Martin along the way

    Summary

    Private solicitor Jonathan Sims is a long way from home when, for the first time in decades, he sees something he can’t explain away.

    He knows enough to fear the monsters that smile with too-sharp teeth, and knows it’s too late to hope both he and his assistant could survive their stay at Castle Magnus. The only thing he can think is to save Martin.

    For once, one of Jon’s plans goes off without a hitch. Martin is saved, and in exchange, Jon’s life is forfeit.

    Really, the only mistake he made was assuming that death was the end of the story.

    Summary

    Other than the eyes, the man was small and thin, with round glasses and salt-and-pepper hair that fell across his face. He was wearing a sweater vest, which was startlingly normal amongst the rest of his appearance. The eyes really were unavoidable, though; one sat in the centre of his forehead, two more on the high points of his cheekbones. They could have been very, very strange tattoos, if they weren’t blinking at him, wide and milky-white.

    “Martin,” the man said, and collapsed.

    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

    “The people you feed from,” Annabelle continues, because it never hurts to emphasise the point, “it scares them when you make them talk. They can’t control it. When you ask them a question, they can’t control anything.”

     

    Jon carries on taking statements after he's found out, and in Annabelle's opinion, it makes him perfect for the Web.

    Summary

    When Martin Blackwood, an unassuming librarian, goes home from the bar with Jonathan Sims, things go a little weird when he notices Jon's eye tattoos aren't actually tattoos.

    And then they go A LOT weirder.
