    Summary

    “It’s Jon, isn’t it?”

    Martin goes suddenly very still, turning his gaze to Tim with wide hazel eyes. “I- er- I’m not sure I know- What?”

    Tim feels his face split in a grin. “So it is Jon! I was just guessing!”

    “It-” Martin fumbled for a moment, then sighs. “Tim can we please not do this?” His brow is a deep furrow, his eyes near pleading behind his glasses.

    “Yeah, alright.” Tim pauses. “You could probably do better, you know.”

    “Tim!” Martin’s ears are a bright shade of scarlet, and Tim feels his smile grow wider.

    “I’m serious!” He elbows Martin in the arm. “You’re a real catch, that grouchy little hermit doesn’t know what they're missing.”

    - or -

    Tim finds out about Martin's crush and decides to take matters into his own hands, with some unexpected consequences. Matchmaking isn't easy when you have a crush on every single one of your coworkers.

    Summary

    There was no knife, no blood, and Jon was not dead. And when he heard a strangled noise from beside him and looked over to see Martin standing in the doorway of the safehouse, flung open and letting in the frigid bite of near-winter and sunlight, there was sunlight, he felt such a dizzying, intense wave of relief that he could hardly breathe around it.

    Then, he opened his mouth to say Martin’s name, and nothing came out, and all of the relief fell away in an instant.

    .

    Jon wakes up in the safehouse in October of 2018, alive and well but without the Eye and without his voice. In the days that follow, he finds himself confronted with a world that has reset itself in space and in time, a version of himself that is no longer the Archivist, and the fact that death during the end of the world had not been so permanent as it had seemed.

    Summary

    Jon coughed again, and blood stained his lips and blood stained Martin’s hands where they pressed against Jon’s back and blood stained the floor beneath them and help, they needed help.

    Martin doesn’t remember shouting. He barely remembers the faces that had surrounded them, wide-eyed and terrified, all utterly unfamiliar.

    .

    Jon and Martin wake up somewhere else. Jon begins a slow path toward physical recovery, and several important, long-put-off conversations are had as they begin to navigate a new world that they hadn’t thought they’d be alive to see.
