    Summary

    If everyone in the nest is a cuckoo, then it's just a family of weird birds.

    (Or: a full month of post-canon Middlegame fics about...well, Word of Seanan is that Dodger takes about five years to figure out how exactly to make a perfect timeline. So what else do she, Roger, Tim and Kim do in that time?)

    Summary

    Martin thinks about their shoes, sitting beside each other on the floor by the bed. Thinks of the way Jon wears Martin’s cardigans more often than he wears his own, the way Martin’s started keeping elastics around his wrist because Jon always forgets his own when they go out.

    He thinks about all the gentle touches and fussing over each other they’ve done, and how much is still to come over the next… however long Jon will have him.

    They have a long way to go, an entire life to build out of the wreckage Jonah Magnus and Peter Lukas left them, but laying together in a comfortable, sleepy quiet, Martin thinks they’ve got a good start going.
     

    Or, Jon quits the Institute, saves the world, and it turns out to be exactly what he needs in order to heal and start moving forward towards building a life with Martin.

    Summary

    "There’s someone new in the village.

    Well. Not in the village, exactly, because the Werewolf Murder Cottage is a few miles along the old dirt path out past the old pond, which is less a pond than a small, smelly mud patch, visible by dint of being only slightly wetter and slightly smellier than everything else. There are half sunken fence posts around the edge, and at night they rise out of the gloom like lost spirits, or the fingers of a giant, grasping hand. There are rusty old bikes and the husk of old washing machines and an almost endless supply of crumpled beer cans, too, and if there are any bodies in the mud they’ve long since turned into the same heavy, sucking sludge as the hillside. Sometimes, late at night, she thinks being a smudge of used-to-be-bone in the palm of that crooked, ancient hand might not be so bad; it would be quiet, at least, and almost no-one goes out that way anymore. But those are the kinds of thoughts that get you sent to the school nurse and a letter written home to the parents, so it’s better to keep them inside.

    This isn’t about the maybe-bones, anyway. It’s about the new people."

    Or: Jon and Martin, lonely ghosts, and hope
