    Summary

    Years after the averted apocalypse, and Jonathan Sims is happy as he'll ever be in his life - he lives with Martin, he works with Basira, he sees his friends most weeks, he's happily wedged between the Beholding and the rest of the world.

    He hasn't seen a Leitner since the end of the world that wasn't, and he's content to keep it that way.

    But this one is different. If he reads this one, he vanishes. If he reads this one, he's in a world where he never existed.

    But the longer he lives in this world, the further he drifts from the things keeping him tethered - and is reality really better for having him in it?

    Summary

    Whatever he had predicted might happen, Jon wasn't expecting to survive upon demolishing the Panopticon. He certainly wasn't expecting to be rescued.

    Instead, he wakes up in an alternative universe where he's never been the Archivist, and Martin Blackwood doesn't exist.

    Martin Blackwood wakes up somewhere else entirely.

    Summary

    Much to Elias’ dismay, Jon doesn’t actually want to be an Archivist.

    Also… well, as Georgie put it: “There are only two situations where you’d say someone ‘died in the line of duty’: if they were actually a literal soldier, or else if you’re a serial killer and you’re not actually that committed to pretending you didn’t kill them. Unless Gertrude died in a top-secret war that’s going on in the basement of the Magnus Institute, I see only one option here.”

    Jon glared, but Georgie shrugged. “Sorry, Jon, I just call it like I see it. Your boss is a serial killer and you’re next on his hit list. Probably best not to take his creepy cursed job position.”

    ~

    In which Jon and Georgie are flatmates, the archives crew rock their dysfunction to the fullest, and the only thing that resembles canon is the way absolutely no one is cishet.
