    Summary

    At their first holiday party together, the archival assistants play snog, marry, avoid. It brings up things Martin would rather it hadn't.

    5+1 kinda formula - going through the seasons with every office party this shitty institute throws. slow burn..... 5 parties they didn't and one they did you all know the drill. pining with a happy ending.

    Summary

    She wasn’t sure what she had been expecting. Some eldritch horror, perhaps, a giant spider or a creature made entirely of eyes or some great crawling mass of insects (she had been told about Jane Prentiss, and was secretly glad she’d never had to see her in person; she would never tell anyone, but bugs creeped her out more than most things).

    But the thin figure curled up on the floor was painfully human.

    Jonathan Sims never signed a contract with The Magnus Institute, and Sasha James succeeded Gertrude Robinson as Head Archivist, just like she always wanted, and bound herself to powers she had no understanding of. Yet.

    Some things change. A lot of things don't.

    For one, Jonah Magnus never lost sight of the potential he saw in Jon.

    Summary

    If asked, Martin would say that he became the shadow director of the Magnus Institute by accident. But nobody ever asked, and nobody ever cared, and it was in this way that Martin stopped lying to himself.

    Or: break free, Martin. All you have to lose are your chains. And your sanity.

    Summary

    Most people who were unlucky enough to meet Jonathan Sims assumed he had no friends. This was true, up to a point two months after Jon became a researcher at the Magnus Institute: afterwards Jon had no friends, except for Sasha James.

    In which Timothy Stoker is attributable to a fake dating scheme, Gerry Keay is attributable to witchcraft, Martin Blackwood is attributable to an ill-advised crush, and Daisy Tonner is attributable to soulmates.

    And in which Sasha James is attributable to arson.
