    Summary

    Somewhere in plain sight, just under your feet, always.

    Metamorphosis: to be purely unmade. Genesis through dissolve; recognition forfeit for wings.

    It happens quiet.

    Summary

    Instead of retiring to open a book shop, Gerry ends up working at a flower shop run by American lesbians in London. This leads to a brush with the Distortion, who just wants to buy some lilies, the Magnus Institute finding out he’s still alive, and... well, a normal life was never really in the cards for the likes of Gerard Keay, was it?

    Oh, and those lesbians who run the flower shop? There’s more to them than meets the eye.

    (No knowledge of Maniac Mansion required; I take lots of liberties to slot it into TMA’s universe.)

    Summary

    “You’ve already made the choice, so you’ll need to commit to it.”

    That's the thing about war. There will always be casualties.

    It all comes down to whether they'll last.

    Summary

    Michael asked Gerard if he might want to give his statement for the record and though he's refused Gertrude so many times--he can't seem to say no to the tall, giggling blond archival assistant. Even if remembering his mother makes him want to vomit or burn something, but being around Michael is...nice.

    Summary

    It catches on itself like a birthright. It burns inward.

    Gertrude Robinson’s desk chair is not the throne Gerard Keay was told he was in line for.

    It sort of hurts his back.

    Summary

    Jon manages to keep himself from reading all of the Watcher’s Crown and then, somehow, he isn’t there anymore. He’s in the Archives, years earlier. He can fix everything before it starts, right?

    Wrong. He’s in Georgie’s flat. There’s still time to make things right, it’s not too late, surely?

    Wrong. The Archives, except that that’s not—is that Martin? That’s probably—

    Wrong. Scotland. Maybe this was all just a bad dream. Martin says it was all just a bad dream. Martin’s always so right, even if he’s acting off. Even if his hair is streaked with spiderweb.

    Summary

    This is just the Table of Contents for the Pharos By Right series! I'll regularly update this when I update chapters. Trust me when I say this is actually a necessary document to keep — it's gonna be a LONG boy.

    I'm going to take this one fic at a time, and unblack the chapter titles/summaries as I go! All tags will be on the actual installments themselves. Also, each "♫" links to the suggested listening for each chapter, but you can find all of them on this spotify playlist!

    Summary

    Uhhhhhhhh,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Gerry didn’t die in this AU, but Gertrude knew that Elias would kill her so guess what her old traumatising ass did. Forced Gerry to put her in the book, of course. Yep, now Gertrude’s in the book and Gerry’s the motherfucking Archivist, how fun.

    Summary

    Elias wasn't quite ready for gertrude to force his hand, and doesn't have a new Archivist picked out yet. He moves a few likely candidates to work in the archives, but the position is still empty.

    The Eye doesn’t care. It has always had an Archivist, and will have one now, with or without Jonah Magnus’ blessing. And it just so happens to have a loyal follower trapped and waiting on the sidelines, who would do almost anything to be freed. Gerry makes a deal.

    Summary

    Gerard Keay was in the middle of getting the eye tattoos on his left knuckles touched up when he remembered he was dying.

    Just as the tattoo artist closed a nigh-imperceptible gap in the iris of his ring finger—the last of the little faded blemishes that had accumulated in the years since he’d first got them—the knowledge that he had a brain tumor popped into his head as casually as if he were remembering a crush he’d had in middle school. It felt familiar, sort of nauseating, and in an upsetting way, weirdly funny.

    “Oh, fuck,” said Gerry, mostly because he didn’t know what else he could say.
