    Summary

    After the monster intervention, Jon disappears. Martin blames himself, and sets out to figure out where Jon is, and how to bring him back.

    Meanwhile, Jon--well, that's a much harder story to tell. Much stranger, too.

    Summary

    “What do you plan on doing to me?” Jon asks, voice shakier than he’d like it to be, but he can’t help it, not when Orsinov is holding him so close to herself.

     

    Orsinov giggles, the sound chilling to his ears. “Well, I WAS going to wear you, but now… I think I’d prefer a baby rather than a coat!”

    ~~~

    AU where when Nikola Orsinov kidnaps Jon, she discovers that he's a Little, effectively throwing a wrench in her plans. Still, even if it’s unexpected, that doesn’t mean she isn’t going to make the most of this!

    Summary

    “Did you know I don’t have a heartbeat anymore? Cut me, and I don’t bleed. I don’t eat, I don’t sleep, I’m cold all the way through. Just a walking corpse, really. I did die, after all.”

    “So did I.”

    “No. No you didn’t. You almost died, and you chose not to. I chose to die and I was brought back. It’s an important distinction, Jon. You still bleed.” And he puts his heart into it, leaning slightly towards the Archivist with one fist balled over his sternum, and it feels important, but Jon doesn’t quite follow and he’s too afraid to ask. Here, between knowledge and death, there is too much that should remain unsaid.

     

    If it's fear that reduces men to beasts, what makes a man?

    Jon is the Archivist, and all that entails. He also remembers that, once, he was human.

    Summary

    "Th-Tha-That-That’s… not-" It trails off, and suddenly it seems to shrink, fear radiating off of it in waves of unknowable colors and unthinkable patterns, and if Jon wasn't so scared for his own life, he'd be fascinated with it's response.

    "Oh. Oh no." Before Jon can open his mouth to ask what, exactly, Michael has realized, it's entire form shatters. He only has a second to register the vaguely humanoid mess of fractals and shifting, impossible shapes and colors, before Michael screams.

    Summary

    Jon moves his attention back to the lost woman, who rubs at her green eyes and begs them for directions, long blonde hair falling out of its hasty tie. There is no such thing as directions here. Martin would want to help her. Is it better to give her false hope, rather than stand back and allow her to go easily into Helen's maw? The end result is the same.

    "I don't know how long I've been here," she weeps, hunched in on herself.

    "I'm so sorry," Jon tries again. It is feeble, useless, but it would be so much worse if he simply watched, and did nothing, like E- like Jonah. "I—"

    "You've got to help me," she cries, and then she is staggering towards him with hands outstretched, her bloody fingers making contact with his jacket collar and Jon—

    Jon sees—

    Summary

    (Could you imagine if that acronym was actually something I used? That would suck. It stands for "Send Jon Cat Photos, It's The Only Joy He Has Anymore" btw)

    This fic is like a spin-off of the fic mentioned in the parenthesis above. It is different ships that are joked about, alluded to,etc. but that hadn't been explored there.

    You really gotta read the one before this one, like this does not make sense if you read it first, you can, I can't stop you, but it will be confusing because these are like an au inside an au, so yeah, but do what you want and have fun.

    Summary

    The Archivist is sat tied-up in front of him. Michael can’t see the future per se, but the Distortion does specialize in impossibly branching paths. And Michael has been the Distortion for long enough now to see the too many paths from here all leading to endpoints he does not want.

    Set during Episode 101: Another Twist. A look into why Michael wanted the Archivist dead, and why Helen didn't.

    Summary

    In which Jonathan Sims is not from the UK but instead, if you took his origins and turned them sideways twice then flipped them over, he technically would be from the US, the town of Night Vale specifically.
    Elias can’t do shit about it and gets a headache and slowly creeping madness instead.

    Summary

    What if Jonah didn't ruin everything? Didn't send the end of everything statement? What do Jon and Martin do now? Get a job, I guess. A teaching job, for Jon, though it was hardly his first pick. But sometimes your boyfriend looks *really* excited when he suggests it, and I mean, you know literally everything. It can't be that bad, right? Right?

    Summary

    He's sitting, now. On a cliff. Watching as the wind sways dead trees.

     

    "You miss him, don't you?" Helen asks, sitting next to him. He keeps his eyes on the trees.

     

    "I miss all of them." He says, blankly. Memories flashing around his mind without his permission.
