    Summary

    Jonah Magnus was not the first to realise the pointlessness of rituals for singular entities. Opening the door to all fears is a concept that had been invented a handful of times throughout history. His ritual just happened to be the only one that worked.

     

    (Five things plus one, times where rituals failed throughout history)

    Summary

    In which Jon and Elias were always destined to find each other, no matter what.
    ---
    Elias flexed his hand before wrapping it around the handle to a cup of steaming coffee. He noted the red string that dangled from his pinky finger. It lay strewn across his desk and the floor, disappearing under the crack of his office door. 

    He could always see this red string - the red string of fate, some people liked to call it. They believed the other end was attached to one of your soulmate's fingers. Elias scoffed at the thought, his nose twitching minutely in disgust. He had better things to do - better things to worry about than some fate bound string that simply would not disappear. Elias has been around for a long, long time. The string wasn't always there, no, but some thirty years ago it showed up, and Elias simply brushed it off. [...]

    Elias remained utterly indifferent towards the string until one day a stammering researcher with nicely colored green eyes bumps into him.

    Summary

    Jon falls ill for the first time since the near-fatal bout of pneumonia that left him with a permanent lung condition. Martin’s anxiety is not ready for this development. Tim and Sasha come to the rescue with good friendship and an excellent blanket fort.

    (Follows “Death is the Easy Way Out” and “Canines, Control, and Cluedo”.)

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims enjoys his work as an editor for Leitner Press, even if it does put him in touch with a rotating cast of bizarre occult and esoteric authors (bug-enthusiast Jane Prentiss and flagship author and recluse Jonah Magnus to name a couple).

    Then one day, his publisher and mentor Gertrude Robinson disappears without a trace and is replaced by her boneheaded son, Michael. To make matters worse, Jon has been assigned a new assistant (who he absolutely does NOT need, thank you very much), Martin Blackwood.

    Martin has a couple secrets up his sleeve:
    1) His very undistinguished secret career
    2) His all-consuming crush on his new boss

    Summary

    *
    *
    Sasha James does not know where she is.

    It looks like the break room, but... off, somehow. Uncanny.

    A few familiar faces, a disembodied voice and… a television join her along the way, and they piece together the situation.

    Chapter-specific CWs before every chapter but most include a sense of/references to: manipulation, gaslighting, memory loss and discussions of death

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims shouldn’t be here. He shouldn’t be in Dr. Elias Bouchard’s debate class when he was captain of the entire team. As a TA, maybe, but as a student? It’s ridiculous, what Dr. Bouchard is asking of him. It’s a waste of everyone’s time. It’s…humiliating. What’s more humiliating is that his new partner is Martin Blackwood, who doesn’t even know the first thing about debate. How on Earth does Dr. Bouchard expect him to survive the semester?

    Summary

    Jon's been hurt before. Far too much and far too often. He has kept his feelings close to his chest for far longer than healthy, but he cannot help it. When he stumbles into a coffee shop late at night and meets Martin, a friendly barista who he likes just a bit too much, he starts to think that maybe things will be a bit better after all.

    Slowly, though, things begin to unravel and Jon must grasp onto that which makes him human in order to survive.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims is a tightly wound spring, curled protectively around all the shamefull bits of himself that he can never show, and it would be very nice if the bumbling idiot Martin Blackwood would stop trying to inadvertently coax them out of him.

    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

    What was a story but a sum of its parts? A beginning and ending, middle plot and the feelings it evoked in the process? The feelings of satisfaction, grief, or catharsis that came after? What was a story if not something that beside the feelings it gave the reader, something that could be left behind when it was over?

    A Guest for Mr. Spider was not a story.

    - Jonathan Sims has just started his second year of university, Gerard Keay has just attempted to sneak off for what may be the final time.

    Summary

    Michael isn't really sure how much has changed in the archives. Sure, the atmosphere is a lot more friendly and he doesn't feel like he has to check around every corner, but how much can a new archivist really change a place like that?

    ----------
    Basically a Michael Shelley lives au where he still works in the archives after Jon becomes archivist. And where Michael Distortion still exists for the sole purpose of causing problems.

    Summary

    “You,” Jon swallowed the static in his voice. “You just compelled me.”

    “No.” Tim wasn’t having this conversation. Not now, not ever. “I’ll grab you some blankets. You can take the couch.”
