    Summary

    [When they were on the couch and maybe a little too wine-drunk, Martin asked Jon if he could describe what love felt like. He told Jon love felt like warmth, to him. Like tea in the cold. Jon looked at Martin with the sloppiest of smiles and told him love felt like a sunrise in his chest. Martin looked back at Jon, and when they locked eyes Martin had seen it. All of those colors.]
     
    Or: Martin Blackwood is unstuck in time.

    Summary

    Jon normally avoids the alleyway when he walks home late. On most nights, the siren cockney call of loose women echoes through the brickwork, aiming for a note that’ll be enticing to lonely men.

    Tonight, though, it is quiet.

    Summary

    Can I make anyone a cuppa?” Martin tries.

    “I do not drink tea,” Nandor sniffs imperiously.

    “What do you drink?” Jon asks, staring intently at Nandor.

    “Tea sounds lovely, Martin,” Guillermo replies.

    “The blood of humans I hunt and kill,” Nandor replies. “Hey! How did you do that?”

    “It’s a gift,” Jon says.

    Dear Jon 2015,

    When you were young, you were meant to be a guest of Mister Spider. You escaped and a bully took your place. I know you’ve never told anyone this because I am a future version of you. I am Jonathan Sims, the Archivist, and I have lived through 5 years of the suffering that comes with your position. I come to you now with the hope that I can prevent the future I’ve lived through. I ended the world, and I leave you this note in the hopes you can avoid the same fate. Attached, you will find a list of every important date and a detailed description of the fear entities that are trying to corrupt this world.

    Trust your assistants. They will care about you if you let them. I’m afraid it’s already too late for them to leave the archives, as it is impossible to quit.

    Signed, Jon 2020, The Archivist

    Summary

    Much to their shock, a lone player discovers that five of their puppets (who have varying degrees of knowledge of the circumstances of their control) have been displaced from their own worlds into their house. While the player struggles to figure out a way to return what they had until now thought to be fictional characters to their respective games, it ends up being just as much of a struggle to stop them from turning their town into a smoking crater in the meanwhile, and that’s not even mentioning what went wrong with the one game that didn’t send any characters into their world or the dreadful things that lurk beyond their computer...

    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

    Welcome to the god au! I am back to start a new long fic, lets hope it doesnt get out of hand again.

    Peter yawns and rubs at his eyes tiredly, there had been a war recently and a lot of souls had to pass through his realm to cross the ocean towards their respectives afterlives. It meant that he had to pay attention to the souls dropping by around the beach so he could send those supposed to go into reincarnation to the waterfall hidden behind the tree-line.

    He doesn't really want to get out of his bed, he was warm and comfortable for once, Simon came by recently and dropped lots of soft and warm fabrics so he could use them for his bed. As much as the hammock was fun it was very cold and its not like the ship he currently lived in was very good at keeping him warm.
