    Summary

    Jon is sick, Tim is (rightfully) upset, and that, my friends, is a recipe for disaster.

    Or: on relationships, vulnerability, and rebuilding trust.

    Summary

    click

    "Recording number four of Timothy Stoker’s investigation into Jonathan Sims, Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute. Fact #4: I’m a zombie, I guess.” Tim turns to Sasha, a twisted smile creeping across his face. “Guess I have to eat your brain now, Sash.”

    She swats at him. “You wouldn’t. You love me too much.”

    “Fact #5: I love Sasha James too much to eat her brain.” Genuine joy filters through him, pushing some of the darkness away, and the smile he gives Sasha is wide and bright. “I guess that leads then into the big question: if I’m supposed to be dead, then why aren’t I?” He pokes a finger into his stomach. Feels real enough. “God, this is so stupid. Why am I even entertaining this? I’m not dead, Danny’s not dead, and I’m too pretty to have ever been bl- uh, to have died, under unnatural circumstances.”

    ---

    Or, Tim wakes up from the Unknowing with a blank slate where the Institute had been, Danny sitting at his bedside, and a man with too many eyes haunting his dreams.

    Summary

    Jon didn’t know how to stand, didn’t know how to occupy the same space as this man, it had just been so long. Even before Lukas, how much time had they spent alone together? What did he even know about Martin? What did he even like about Martin? A coach-ride conversation about music taste hardly made up for the four years he hadn’t cared to learn.

    Basically a lot of Jon adoring Martin and having no idea how to say so. Another Scottish cabin fic, ur welcome

    recommended listening: Tallahassee by the mountain goats

    Summary

    “Come in, Martin,” he says, not looking up from his notes. 

    “Hi, Jon,” he says, and Jon stops writing at the sound of his voice. “We’re out of the green tea, but we’ve got lemon?” 

    Jon looks at him. Martin smiles at him in his usual tentative way as he sets the mug of tea down on Jon’s desk. Heat spikes so sharply in his gut that he twitches with it. 

    “Thank you, Martin,” he says, mouth dry, and he stands up. 

    “Oh,” he says, sounding almost surprised. He smiles again. “No-- no problem-- um, what are you--” 

    Jon takes Martin by the shoulders, leans up on the tips of his toes, and kisses him.
