    Summary

    Robbie’s heard that for as long as they can remember.

    It’s something that the rest of their family and the whole village says. An unspoken rule, like “we don’t touch hot things while they’re hot”.

    Even if they’re determined to figure out who this “Uncle Jon” is and *why* everybody refuses to talk about him.

    (A throughly self-indulgent Encanto AU that the cast of the Magnus Archives fit far too well.)
    (Warning for Encanto spoilers, lots of OCs, and deciding Helen and Michael Distortion would in any way constitute a good place to settle down and raise a magic family.)

    Summary

    When Jonathan Sims leads Martin Blackwood out of the Lonely, many things have and have not happened.
    In most universes they leave uninhibited. They run until they reach Daisy’s safehouse and they enjoy the peace. From there they either find happiness or Jon is forced to end the world. They work it out.

    In the universe we’re peering into, they’re interrupted.

    A butterfly flaps its wings.
    Let’s see how the dominoes fall, shall we?

    Summary

    "Martin is across the room in seconds, grasping Arun’s arms in a bone-crushing grip, forcing him to release Jon, who’s stubbornly struggling. There are bruises on his neck, adding colour to the map of scars. Martin sees red."

    Arun takes matters into his own hands.

    Summary

    It’s like, as soon as you place yourself in a specific angle, you’re limiting yourself — even with the Beyond. As big as the Beyond is, or the Vast, or any other definition that comes down to infinity, those words aren’t infinite.

    I’m probably talking out of my ass here. Either that, or I’m developing the hottest new science for complete morons. Para-anthropology.

    Note to self: find a name that’s not as hellish to say as para-anthropology.

    No one made space for people like Melanie. She had always preferred building her own.

    Summary

    Jon Sims, Melanie King, and Georgie Barker are best friends, going to the same university and living in dorms across the hall from each other.

    Martin Blackwood is lonely and unused to being wanted, but his roommate Tim Stoker and Tim's girlfriend Sasha James are determined to change that.

    When Jon and Martin meet on the first day of class, it's love at first sight, but getting the two anxious young men together is going to take a lot of love and effort from their friends.

    Summary

    "So the Archivist ate Jon," Melanie starts, eyes fixed on weak lightbulb so they won't fall on the scalpel in her hand. "That's what you said."

    "I said I am Jon. And that I ate him." The Archivist turns a page, not even looking up. "Metaphysically, for the most part."

    "Sure. Whatever." She exhales out the urge to swing the scalpel in an arc, to follow through like a conductor until it meets skin. It would be so easy. "So if...if the Slaughter eats me. I'll Become. Something. Or. Or it Becomes me."

    "Not exactly." The Archivist taps the rocky floor, glancing over at her. She doesn't dare tear her eyes from the lightbulb, not with the scalpel in her hand. "The Slaughter might eat you. But to really Become, you'd have to eat the Slaughter back."

    Jon wakes up four months early. This is not necessarily a good thing.

    Summary

    Melanie is grateful to Jon three times. 

    The first, for coming back at all. Not that she missed him, not that she’s glad he’s not dead. But the last few months in the Institute have felt hollow and it’s a sickening relief to have a target for her anger again. 

    The second, for asking to remove the bullet, and allowing her to refuse. This is a more complicated gratitude, because she doesn’t want it. But she can’t bring herself to wish he’d kept this meagre measure of control, of choice, from her. So she is grateful, and she hates it. 

    The third, for being the obvious monster everyone has their eye on, so they never think to ask about the blood under her nail, don’t wonder when she slips out the door of the archives with a knife in hand. Maybe she should feel guiltier for letting Jon take the fall, knowing full well that everyone involved in their little intervention has at least as much blood on their hands. But she still hates him just enough to be able to swallow down the guilt, so she lets Basira threaten him and swears that she won’t let any of her victims make it back to the Institute with their stories.

    Summary

    She scoffed. “You wouldn’t kick me out of here.” The beyond annoyed almost-pout he gave her only confirmed it further. She did come here for help. Just- “Why didn’t you tell me you worked here? Hell, that you were the Archivist?”

    “Didn’t think you’d be very happy about it.”

    Summary

    Jon squints up at the block of apartments. The sky behind it is dark grey, threatening rain. Some of the windows are lit, and some of them aren’t. Tim lives in Flat 15, according to his employee records, so pretty high up.

    -

    There’s a cat staring out of a ground-floor window. Looking straight at him. It looks just like the Admiral, ginger and fluffy. It meows, silent, and puts one of it’s paws up onto the glass.

    Jon smiles at it, thin and thready. “Hello,” he says, though there’s no way the cat can hear him over the storm.

    -

    “Seatbelt,” Basira says. Jon reaches up, pulls the belt across his chest, clicks it into place. Safe and sound. Basira turns the key, and the headlights light up. It’s raining, a low patter against the roof of the car as they pull away.

    -

    Jon’s not sure what the proper procedure is, when waiting for your coworker to blind herself. Outside, beyond the reinforced glass doors, rain hammers into the pavement.
     
    -

    Jon tightens his grip on Martin’s hand. It’s soft, a little damp, the fingers slightly curled inward. “Not much further,” he says.

    -----

    Five unrecorded moments. It's always raining somewhere.
