    Summary

    I haven’t told Tommy or Techno. They thought it was all a joke, and whatever excuse Wilbur made to them seems to have worked, because they’re not asking. I’m glad. Please don’t tell them. If you really have to talk to somebody, talk to Wilbur. I’ve told him I’m making a statement here, and he says he’s okay with follow-up questions. I’ve written his number down on the extra paper you gave me.

    There’s one last thing I need to put here, actually. It’s one of the things I said, but it’s different. I have the weirdest feeling that it’s meant for you. For whoever is reading this. And it’s a warning.

    ‘The age-old passage rots away beneath the archives.’

    There's not really anything else to say.

    Local author promises hurt in a crossover between two already angst-ridden fandoms. More at nine.

    Summary

    Suppressants are safe and easy enough to get, and between that and the scent block and everything else about his outward personality, Martin lets everyone make their own assumptions.

    They never - ever - assume he’s type A.

    Summary

    For all intents and purposes, the trip to Sightsburgh was supposed to be simple. Or at least somewhat simple, a job they stayed at for maybe a month at most, then got sent away. Of course, nothing was that simple for Jon, and everything continues to spiral out of control.

    Namely, getting turned into a vampire. And as a monster hunter (read; vampire hunter), that certainly complicates things.

    Summary

    The Web is hosting a tournament and every Avatar in London is to participate whether they want to or not. The prize promises power, glory, and perhaps even immortality if one can only climb to the top of the ranks and prove themselves the strongest of the Fears. For those not participating, the tournament promises revelry, riches, and entertainment. Surely there's nothing going on behind the scenes.

    Summary

    From the Kinkmeme Prompt: Jon/Catboy Martin, Solicitation purring

    "Cats sometimes purr in a specific frequency when they want something from their human, be it food or playtime. They might even use them to convince their human to stop working and go to bed (particularly if they're used to cuddling with them at night, or they're keeping them awake). Cats also purr, with a different frequency, to self-soothe, sometimes to get themselves ready to sleep.

    Anyway, this has made me imagine a silly scenario: It's season one and Martin, a catboy, is staying at the Archives. One night Jon is working far too late and Martin, who's ready for bed tries to convince him to leave or at least sleep on the couch, non-purposefully purring up a storm in the meantime. But it works so Martin occasionally purrs when he really wants to get Jon to do something, such as eat lunch or sleep at a reasonable hour. And Jon finds himself very, very easily swayed."

    Summary

    Timothy Stoker had a super power. Since his earliest memories, Tim tried so hard at everything. Friends, school, family, he worked himself to the bone to be good. He made people smile, got good grades, kept his little brother out of trouble, and Tim’s parents were so proud. His super power was that everyone thought it looked easy. The older he got the less Tim recognised himself in other people’s descriptions of him. Silly Tim, easy-going Tim, random and funny and a good-time. Still, it didn’t matter really because it made people happy.

    Tim liked it when other people were happy.

    Ash Blackwood came back in time and shifted fate just a little. Gerard Keay lives and interferes with the archives to protect Sasha and the others from the worst of what was to come. Even after she is gone, there's still a lot of fallout for Tim to face.

    Summary

    "In front of them was an eyesore of a van, bright blue and green, with floral designs painted across the side and large orange letters proclaiming it, 'The Mystery Machine'. That alone was not enough to discourage Adelard; he’d seen pictures of the van all over their website, and well, poor design choice could be overlooked given such positive client testimonials. The group outside the van, though - they made Adelard consider the possibility that Elias Bouchard might be right to be worried."

    Mystery Incorporated, made up of members Jonathan Sims, Sasha James, Timothy Stoker, and new recruits Martin Blackwood and Esther (his dog) are called to investigate an apparently haunted construction site. A Magnus Archives Scooby Doo AU.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood can't exactly say that his life is normal. It started out normal enough, but he's pretty sure that becoming a pseudo-immortal space pirate after being ripped open by a vampire doctor is a bit 'out there'. But he hasn't been home in centuries, and after the events of the Bifrost Incident, he really just wants to return to the mundane for a bit. Maybe he can tie up some loose ends while he's at it.

    The new archiving job and extra-spooky supernatural insanity wasn't exactly what he'd had in mind.

    ***

    An AU that explores Martin as a Mechanism during the TMA timeline.

    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    “Thanks for checking on me, but I’m cold and tired and I’d really like to go home now.”

    “Ah, right. Here,” Tim pulled his own jacket off and swung it around her shoulders.

    She started, blinking as he pulled the hood up. “Wh- I can’t take your jacket!”

    “Sure you can,” Tim shrugged. It was cold, but he was headed back to the Institute anyway, and he had a spare there. It wasn’t far. 

    “No, really, I can’t. I don’t have any money to give you for it and-” 

    “Okay, okay,” Tim raised his hands in surrender. “Okay. I’ll just have to walk you home so you can give it back, then.”

    >>Wherein Tim walks home a waitress he just met, makes a fool of himself, and she calls him back.

    This came about because Tim Deserves Better and by God I'm going to give him Better.

    Summary

    "No, hang on," Jon said.
    For a moment, it was hard to decide who looked more surprised that he had said it.
    “S-sorry?” Martin said, freezing halfway out of his chair. Jon - twitched. If he didn’t know better, Martin would have thought of it as a flinch.
    “I, ah, didn’t mean,” Jon said. Then he swallowed, looking down at Martin's hands. "Let me help you with that.”


    It's nearly morning in the Archives, and Martin can't sleep.

    Summary

    Tim watches as Jon’s eyes flit over the paper, and their face softens into a small smile. Martin walks back into the room, sees Jon and the paper, and he freezes. Before Jon can turn and see the look of horror on Martin’s face, Tim jumps to his feet.

    “Oh, that’s mine!” he claims, hoping that whatever Martin wrote wasn't too bad. “You,uh, you like it?”

    Jon scoffs, but they don’t say no. “I didn’t take you for a poet. I better not catch you writing poetry on company time.” There’s no bite to their words. In fact, it’s the most playful Tim’s heard them sound in weeks.

    “I’d never let you catch me, Boss!” Tim salutes Jon, who rolls their eyes and goes back into their office.

    It’s a love poem. Jon read a love poem that they found on the ground and they smiled. Tim looks up. “Holy shit, Martin, you’ve got to help me.”

    ****
    Or, Tim is in love with Jon and recruits Martin to write love poetry to help woo them, completely unaware of Martin’s own feelings for Jon. A queer Cyrano de Bergerac retelling set in the Archives.

    Summary

    “Start from the beginning. He is a newly appointed Head Archivist—
    But that’s what he’s always been, isn’t it? It’s become a part of him, part of his identity. Part of what he is. He might not be human anymore, but The Archivist is something that’s become such a constant—
    Wait a second. Not human? Jon searches his sink with his eyes, as if it holds answers to his endless stream of questions. It doesn’t, obviously. He lets out another shaky breath.
    He looks up at his face in the mirror. His eyes are brown, exhausted, and wide open in fear and confusion.
    Pluck them out. End it now.
    Jon flinches and lets go of the sink as if it burned him.
    You can stop it before it’s even started. Save them all. Gouge them out and be done with it.
    His mind is drowning him. He knows this much. Something happened and whatever it is, it’s going to kill him if he doesn’t approach it carefully.”

    Jon awakens with a tidal wave of memories that don’t make any sense. In an attempt to go on with his life, he searches for the cause of the turmoil in his mind. He knows, though, that something inside him is waking up.
