    Summary

    When Jon accidentally reads a Leitner-ized artbook, he falls into an unbreakable slumber. With the Unknowing on the horizon, Martin and Tim must journey through the Cosmosphere, a series of dream worlds created from his psyche, in order to free him from the Leitner's curse.

    (a.k.a. the Reyvateil!Jon fic that everyone would have asked for if Ar Tonelico wasn't a cult classic)

    Summary

    When Jonathan Sims leads Martin Blackwood out of the Lonely, many things have and have not happened.
    In most universes they leave uninhibited. They run until they reach Daisy’s safehouse and they enjoy the peace. From there they either find happiness or Jon is forced to end the world. They work it out.

    In the universe we’re peering into, they’re interrupted.

    A butterfly flaps its wings.
    Let’s see how the dominoes fall, shall we?

    Summary

    The Archives crew wake up in 2014 to discover that they all recall the events yet to happen in their lives. With a second chance presented to them, and a somewhat familiar face extending a friendly offer to assist in keeping everyone alive, Jon, Martin, Tim, Sasha, Georgie, Melanie, Basira, and Daisy all join forces to keep themselves out of trouble long enough to save the world. Again.
    Or: another time travel fix-it with me projecting on the child I just assigned to JMart because they deserve a nice, happy family. Complete with a tragic backstory for them so I can give a reason for why they did this in the first place.
    Title comes from a Will Wood song I listen to on repeat with big TMA vibes.

    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    SASHA: Tim? Why is Martin babbling about there being only one bed?

    TIM: Oh? They just realised that now? Of course it was going to be one bed, Sasha, how can their romantic plotline progress if there were two beds with Martin pining in one and Jon denying his feelings in the other? Better do the pining and denying in the same king-sized bed, you know?

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims has been marked from his first moment... Stillborn, but so very wanted... The End brings him back, and the Eye isn't so keen on letting him die again.

    There's many ways for an archivist to be marked.

    Summary

    After Martin's mother died, at long last, Martin's left with more money than he knows what to do with. So he starts over, abandons his tiny apartment, and puts his (apparently very large) inheritance money to good use.

    That purchase may or may not include something he didn't bargain for and his new house may or may not be haunted. He wouldn't exactly call the ghost(???) a bonus, but hey, at least he's cute.

    Summary

    When Prentiss attacks for real, Jon does hear it. There is a song, there, in the worms, and it sings to him, and it grates against his ears so hard he thinks the distorted squeal will never go away, a faux-percussion line of slime and squirming and horrible writhing sounds. It is not music Jon recognizes, it is not music Jon wants in his archives, and yet- he can see where someone would be attracted by the dissonance, the same way he was years ago by the squeal of guitar strings and the crash of the drums.

     

     

    A character study of Jon's relationship with music through the ages. Minor Mechs content included but you don't need to know anything about the Mechs to read.

    Summary

    "Oh my god," Sasha says, "you didn't - you didn't know. Tim, I was literally thrown into Simon's stupid Sky when I was twenty-one and came out somehow working for the same Entity that you work for? "

    "What is going on," says Martin meekly, mostly to himself.

    "I," flounders Tim. "Sash, what the FUCK?"

    Summary

    "There's something wrong with Jon," says Tim, from where he's pulling up a PowerPoint.

    Sasha, Martin and the unknown woman all stare at him with varying degrees of apprehension. The TV lights up on the first slide.

    "That's an animorphs book cover," says Sasha.

    "It's relevant," says Tim, grimly.

    Or, in another universe, Jonah Magnus sets his sights on Jon for very different reasons. Those reasons being clawing his eyeballs out and crawling in his body.
