And why does a strange horse wander the lakeshore each morning at dawn?

    AKA a fantasy AU with faeries!

    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

    AU where instead of replacing someone, Not Them just inserts themself into a situation. They're also a tad more human and somewhat more friendly.

    "I see you! Show yourself!"
    Sasha looks at the unfamiliar figure, brows furrowed as she's bracing herself, and then relaxes in recognition.
    "Oh, Em, thank god it's just you."

    Summary

    There was a blackness in the shadows around the corner, bending. She almost doubted her vision for a second but stumbled as the darkness ahead of her seemed to contort. The hell was that?

    “Who’s there?” Sasha called out, breaking the silence and praying that her words wouldn’t attract a hoard of Prentice’s things.

    She’d been right. It was a person, a figure, shrouded in the dark, moving without having acknowledged her presence.

    Summary

    Tim keeps a tight grip on Martin's hand, his other arm draped across his back and resting on one of Sasha's still shaking shoulders. They don't try to move the blanket as they wait, huddled beneath it together, no longer bleeding but littered with bandages and fear.

    An hour later, just as the three of them are being ushered away, told to go home and take some time off, Jon staggers out of the institute, covered in dead worms and the remnants of the carbon dioxide foam, looking half-dead on his feet.

    Something desperate and tense, the part of him that is still so, so guilty, unwinds in Tim's chest.

    Jon is safe, they all are.

    Summary

    He took his glasses off and wiped them off with a piece of fabric pulled from his pocket, “Well, it would appear that there was an incident. A number of their research and archival assistants went missing.”
    That garnered an immediate reaction from all of us, “What the hell causes ‘a number of research and archival assistants’ to go missing?”

    This is a sort of AU/Alternate timeline with several original characters.

    Summary

    In which Jonathan Sims is not from the UK but instead, if you took his origins and turned them sideways twice then flipped them over, he technically would be from the US, the town of Night Vale specifically.
    Elias can’t do shit about it and gets a headache and slowly creeping madness instead.

    Summary

    Jon manages to keep himself from reading all of the Watcher’s Crown and then, somehow, he isn’t there anymore. He’s in the Archives, years earlier. He can fix everything before it starts, right?

    Wrong. He’s in Georgie’s flat. There’s still time to make things right, it’s not too late, surely?

    Wrong. The Archives, except that that’s not—is that Martin? That’s probably—

    Wrong. Scotland. Maybe this was all just a bad dream. Martin says it was all just a bad dream. Martin’s always so right, even if he’s acting off. Even if his hair is streaked with spiderweb.

    Summary

    It annoys Helen deeply that Michael Shelley is not dead.

    She's certain he's still there, existing within the Distortion, influencing her actions in ways she can't understand. It would be a delicious situation if it wasn't, well, her - if it didn't threaten everything about the awful, wonderful existence she now leads. So she's going to gouge him out of herself, even if she has to use the help of the beings she hates most to do it. Even if it destroys her from the inside.

    Summary

    The great Eye that had replaced the sun is withering, sinking in on itself and weeping green. He doesn't need the Beholding's help to know that other horrors around the world are dissolving too, countless agonies peeling back to release their victims.

    It's the ultimate cruelty that, for this to work, Jon had to die first.

    Above him, Helen claps her palms together. “How do you feel about a suggestion?”

     

    Or: at the end of it all, Martin makes a choice-- and four years earlier, Martin wakes up.
