    Summary

    After Jon rescues Martin from the Lonely, the two of them flee to Daisy's (surprisingly quaint) safehouse in the Scottish highlands. It's a paradise compared to the hell they've had to deal with for the past few years.

    It's not perfect though Jonah Magnus is still out there as are the Hunters and the Not-Them. Daisy is probably lost to the Hunt, Martin is still haunted by the Lonely, and Jon still needs statements to live. And no matter what else happens they'll be forced to return to the institute sooner or later anyway.

    But for the moment they've earned themselves a little peace.

    Summary

    "So, you and Jon, huh?" Melanie says. "Never thought I'd be the one to say it, but good for you."
    "Sorry, me and Jon what?"
    "Dating," Melanie says slowly, like she can't believe he's being this dense. "You and Jon dating. Congratulations."
    "Oh, uh, so the thing is, I'm not sure if we are, actually," Martin says, rubbing the back of his head.
    "You're not sure?" Melanie asks incredulously. "You're living together, sharing clothes--well, Georgie says he's wearing some of your jumpers, at least--sleeping in the same bed, and you're not sure if you're dating?"
    "We just," Martin stammers, "we haven't really talked about it, all right?"

    After Jonah's ritual fails, severing Jon's connection to the Beholding, Jon and Martin try to put the pieces of their lives back together. Adjusting to normal life again after everything is hard, and exploring their new relationship is even harder, especially as Martin realizes he might be aro-spec.

    Summary

    "Martin always felt the chill of the winter to his bones. The dry December air would steal moisture from his lungs, and the warmth from his body. Everything about its cold sting made him feel so far away. Whether it was because of the memories that the holidays dredged up, or because it always made his younger self yearn for more. For things he never thought he would have. Things he didn’t think he deserved, up until recently: like love, and warmth, and a home that--finally--felt like one. "

    ~ After 6 years, Martin is visiting home for the holidays. Christmas has always been a complicated time of year for him, and seeing his family again was about to make it a whole lot harder. Faced with his homophobic extended family, Martin has to navigate their scathing remarks--while he struggles to avoid drowning in the icy water of his past. ~

    Summary

    What are you thinking?
    Why are you glancing at me?
    Making my head go ‘round
    Making my heart pound

     

     

    What are you staring at?
    I wonder what it is you see
    Are you looking at me?
    What are you looking for?

     

    --

    Jon wants. Their pinky twitches — stretching and curling to the tune of something musical. The song of wanting, with its motifs of long, low notes. Starting quiet and mumbling up into Jon’s chest until the strings of their heart vibrate like the strings of a double bass and all they can do is wonder who’s tune they’re matching. But they know.

    They can’t have Martin, though it’s no fault of their own. The Lonely is an abrasive place. Martin went into it full and functional, he went into it willingly and he let the fog tear down every last boundary the man had built himself. Healthy defenses obscured in the fog he could side step into. It was easy for him. Jon knows how easy it can be, both to give into a fear and to put their needs above the security of others. They won’t do that again. Not to Martin.

    Summary

    “Thank you,” he said. “It’s- Don’t take this the wrong way, Georgie, but coming from her it wasn’t really a surprise. Not at the time. It wasn’t a- um… It didn’t feel like a betrayal.”

    He felt Georgie’s answering wince.

    “Yeah,” she said, her voice wavering slightly. “Yeah, that’s fair.”

    Summary

    It's such a small thing. So ridiculously inconsequential in the grand scheme of things that it would make him laugh if it wasn't threatening to send him spiralling in a very mundane, human way.

    or;

    Jon has to deal with being human again in the wake of everything that happened to him, and all that entails.

    Summary

    She hadn’t felt this anxious in god knows how long, and it was sort of pissing her off. She’d thought if she’d had what it took to escape the world’s most hostile work environment, she’d have what it takes to meet a dog. A dog that would probably make her life quite a bit easier.

    Summary

    Formed in 1913 the Gorgas Files was created as a collection of statements of encounters with the supernatural. Stored in the Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library at the University of Alabama, the Gorgas Files offers a work study opportunity for University students studying a wide range of subjects from library science to journalism. It's a great opportunity, if only you can get past the omnipresent feeling that something is very wrong whenever you're down there.
