    Summary

    A conceptual sequel to my Avatar MC series "MAG 666: Exchange Student". Last time I considered which Entities the brothers would be most scared of, this time I share which they'd vibe with! An alternative title for this was "Avatar of- Wait a Minute".
    Inspired by tumblr user thegrimgrinningghost.

    Summary

    Melanie is grateful to Jon three times. 

    The first, for coming back at all. Not that she missed him, not that she’s glad he’s not dead. But the last few months in the Institute have felt hollow and it’s a sickening relief to have a target for her anger again. 

    The second, for asking to remove the bullet, and allowing her to refuse. This is a more complicated gratitude, because she doesn’t want it. But she can’t bring herself to wish he’d kept this meagre measure of control, of choice, from her. So she is grateful, and she hates it. 

    The third, for being the obvious monster everyone has their eye on, so they never think to ask about the blood under her nail, don’t wonder when she slips out the door of the archives with a knife in hand. Maybe she should feel guiltier for letting Jon take the fall, knowing full well that everyone involved in their little intervention has at least as much blood on their hands. But she still hates him just enough to be able to swallow down the guilt, so she lets Basira threaten him and swears that she won’t let any of her victims make it back to the Institute with their stories.

    Summary

    when he gets ahold of the detonator, his feet stop dancing to their faceless-fearbent beatpulsebeat cacophany-strung-color-turn-tune, and square up. like standing at attention, some removed part of him thinks mirthlessly, looking up into the not-face of grimaldi, heart singing out like a snare drum, like a bugle cry.

    the theater they had dug out under the yarmouth house of wax was substantially bigger than that theater in budapest. it only made sense that the fireworks should also evolve with the times. a cannon just wouldn’t do the trick anymore, would it?

    Summary

    She points her cane towards his teacher threateningly. “Let me have my fun before your boring old man lecture or I’ll stab you again.”

    “Good to see you haven’t changed.” Mr Sims says almost fondly. Melanie bops him on the head with her cane and he yelps. Her grin widens.

    “Neither have you, old man.”

    “I am not old—” He shakes his head furiously and spreads his hands in a calming gesture. “Now, Melanie is here to—”

    Summary

    Seeing Georgie is the only thing keeping you sane. You go for drinks, and she bullies you into doing terrible karaoke and watching documentaries about dolphins. (“They may have the capacity for evil, Melanie! You cannot tell me that’s not brilliant.”) Or you just get drunk. Georgie tells you about her latest What the Ghost? shenanigans and you commiserate, offer to ream out whoever she’s having difficulties with. She laughs. For a moment, that’s all you need.

    The moment passes.

    Summary

    There’s a certain feeling you get when you find yourself alone for more than a few days. With nothing but small talk and the friendly “how are you”s staving off isolation, you develop a certain apathy to the world around you. You feel like you yourself are desolate and a wasteland, left for whatever finds you in the open expanses. There’s no word for it really, but you know it when it comes. And it comes quickly.

    Summary

    An album in celebration of The Magnus Archives and the storytellers at Rusty Quill
    14 original songs. One for each fear on Robert Smirke's list.
    Thoughts, tidbits, process and other types of shouting into the void can be found in the video descriptions below the lyrics. Specific Content Warning will be listed alongside their respective songs. If I've missed or mislabeled some, please let me know.

    (I am unclear if this is an appropriate platform to be posting a work of fiction like this? It's not a podfic, and it's not a song fic. It's just...songs about a pod? Does this count? Should I be here?)
