    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

    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.

    Summary

    Jon hadn’t exactly forgotten that Martin was sleeping in the archives, per se, it had just… unfortunately slipped his mind.

    Or in which Jon and Martin are extremely sleep-deprived and traumatized and you know what, just a dash of Physical Touch couldn't hurt... it actually would be very nice, thank you.

    This is a partially pre-written fic, see notes for updating schedule

    “Did you, uh,” Jon starts. “Do you know about the Doves typeface?” 

    “Oh, er– what?” 

    “It’s just that, uh, the creator of Doves type threw all of its original printing matrices into the Thames.”

    “That’s very, um—” 

    “—He wanted to keep them from his business partner.” 

    “I didn’t—”

    “—It took him 170 trips over the course of five months.” 

    “Right.”

    Summary

    “Maybe you can tell me what happened, then.” Jon can feel the bite in his voice where his panic is seeping through. “Who are you?”

    The man’s face doesn’t change, but his eyes flash and he takes in a quick breath, and Jon feels welling guilt that he made this man with such a kind-looking face look…sad.

    “I’m–” A breath, more controlled than the last one. “My name is Martin. Do you mind if I come in?”

    or: Jon's powers come with the consequence of temporary amnesia. Even in the throes of the Lonely, Martin can't not make sure he's okay. A fic for the Winter in the Archives gift exchange!

    Summary

    “Here is the list of instructions for your daily tasks. These must be completed every day, so make sure to keep it in your mind.”
    Martin took a quick look at the list. Mostly, it was keeping the place clean and functional, and making sure that all of the Archivist’s needs were met. The first part wasn’t particularly difficult, there was nothing he wasn’t able to do, but the second part…

    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

    Martin’s mother has taken ill, and the only thing that might cure her is magic. When a star falls to earth and Martin witnesses it crash in the distant forest beyond his village, he sets out to retrieve it. What he doesn't anticipate is that the star is not actually fallen rock - it's a person named Jon, and Jon is being hunted.

    Martin's life is turned upside down as his simple mission quickly becomes a quest to protect Jon from those who seek to claim his heart for their own. Along the way, he and Jon both discover that there are actually many ways you can win someone's heart, not all of them so literal.

    In short, a Stardust AU.

    Summary

    It wasn’t unlike Jon to work late, but 4am was pushing it and Martin knew for a fact that he didn’t drink coffee.
    He’d said goodbye to Sasha and Tim that very evening, and both had mentioned plans that night, so there was no way they were still here.
    Which left only one.
    An intruder.

    Martin finds Jon awake and sleep-deprived at 4 AM. Hurt/comfort ensues.

    Summary

    Do you think we killed Gertrude?” said Sasha, and it was almost as if the room got colder.
    “No, it’s-” Jon started, feeling his hands begin to shake. He blinked, hard. “Maybe. Maybe you did, I don’t know-”
