    Summary

    Five times Drumbot Brian had some kind of existential crisis about infinity,immortality or eternity and one time infinity had an end.

    This fic wasn't originally intended to be part of mechtober, but it was the motivation I needed to finish it, as my premise fit perfectly with day 1-3: eternity (and day one: mechanisation/space except I didn't finish on time), so now it's a mechtober fic.

    Summary

    And so the Mechanisms died. One by one, in stupid, pointless ways that were never supposed to be able to bring down a Mechanism. Even the Toy Soldier, never truly alive in the first place, had stopped pretending, sitting lifeless in a cobwebbed storage closet, just like any abandoned toy. Except for Jonny. For some fucking reason, the universe had decided he wasn’t done yet. And so he wandered aimlessly through the cosmos. Alone.

    After all his crew has met their pointless, ignoble ends, Jonny comes across his creator

    Summary

    After reading Eric Delano’s Statement and talking to Martin, Jon decides to follow through and gouge out his eyes to try and escape monsterhood. He doesn’t expect to wake up years earlier in his old flat, where everything’s almost the way it used to be. He doesn’t expect to have more eyes than before, and new problems, and new nightmares.
    But he also doesn’t expect Martin to be a Mechs fan, or the chance to actually change things this time around.
    As it turns out, sometimes you need to give yourself permission to heal, and be open to the kindness and help of others in order for life to improve.
    And that’s definitely not just the case for Jon.

    OR: monster!mechs!jon travels back in time into a slightly different reality, and is bullied into healing through the power of found family.
    Everyone who matters will live and there’s a happy ending... but until then, I'll do what I want. There shall be a bit of everything, and not everyone who’s dead in canon is dead here. It's going to be LONG and a very slow burn in more ways than one ♡

    Summary

    "Think of it this way: Jonny hated arguing.

    He liked fighting, of course.

    He liked taking the guns and screaming and feeling the blood on his hands. He liked running away with the sound of the gunfires around him.

    He liked...you know, violence.

    But arguing?

    Oh, he hated that.

    Arguing gives him headaches."

    Summary

    Tim had been on the Aurora for at least a few centuries now, and after the first, when she had spent all her time being mad at Jonny and blowing shit up as a bad coping mechanism, fae had finally talked to the crew about feelings and shit and joined the Bastard Space Polycule. Somehow in all that time, she had never told the crew that fae was genderfluid.

    But now, after centuries of trusting these people with - well not really with faer life because of the whole immortality thing, but close enough, she was finally considering it. Considering it didn’t mean actually doing it though, she reckoned that would take at least a few more years. Imagine faer surprise when it only took a few more minutes.

    Or

    Tim comes out, but not exactly in the circumstances she expected.
