    Summary


    "... bloody wizards. They need to learn that just because they can do something doesn't mean they should…"

     

     

    Odin, Head of Locomotive Magics and Strange Whirring Things at the Unseen University, is building a train, powered by magic and faster than anything dreamt of before.

    Sigyn is the leader of the student rebellion trying to figure out what really happened to her girlfriend Loki and get justice.

    Vimes is having to deal with a set of prisoners, with manners and dress utterly alien to him, but nevertheless able to annoy him no end.

    ...is this seeming familiar to anyone else?

    Summary

    Lyfrassir Edda had loved the Mechanisms once - truly loved them all with their entire heart. But they were mortal; they knew that relationship would not survive the test of time. So they left in pursuit of a quiet life; a simple life. Earth was by far the last place anyone would look for Lyf and besides, how hard could it be to work as an archivist?

    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

    And yet they couldn't help but feel a deep kinship with the broken artefact, in a way. It was trying its best, stuck with people who could not comprehend its thoughts nor its secrets in spite of their best efforts.

    (In which Inspector Second Class Lyfrassir Edda and the black box develop an interesting relationship.)

    Summary

    Marius regretted leaving Lyf back on Midgard, and eventually managed to convince at least half the crew to let him go back. But at that point it was too late. The Ygdrassil System was unreachable from their previously registered coordinates, and there was no trace of the Inspector that Marius had grown so fond of.

    But that wasn't going to stop him from searching.

    Summary

    Lyfrassir didn’t know what they had expected, being the last surviving person of a cosmically destroyed galaxy. There hadn’t been much planning involved other than ‘Run’. So, it’s lucky that the narrative finds it suiting to find them. Just in time.

    Summary

    Hushed, furious voices rouse Loki from a feverish sleep. This happens every morning, she thinks, but when she tries to recall a single morning before this one, the static in her head rises to a dull roar and she clamps her hands over her ears to stop it. She’s still lying like that, curled up with her fingers tangled in her matted hair, when the guards burst into her room and grab her by the elbows.

    Summary

    Basically this is an AU where (Inspector 2nd class) Lifrasir Edda (New Midgard Transport Police) escapes their burning world and eventually ends up on Earth (Terra) and ends up joining the Magnus Institute as Jonathan Sims.

    Ultimately with some relatively involved pre-story concerning how Lifrasir even gets to earth in the first place. I intend to follow along relatively consistently with The Magnus Archive podcast, so consider this a bit of an experiment in letting my hyperfixations run the show for a bit.

    Content warnings will be in the notes before each chapter, feel free to comment with additional content warnings if you feel it needs them.
