    Summary

    Months have passed, and everyone is doing better than they were. Daisy and Basira are getting married, Melanie is feeling her old self, Georgie is as much herself as she has ever been, and even Jon has stabilized on his wild fall away from humanity. Everyone is doing better.

    Summary

    "The November sun warms John’s face as he walks, passing by glittering cars and huddling strangers, both given to the early frost. He is at peace.

    Roughly fifty-five miles away from him, Annabelle Cane knits the last of her stitches in place. She is also at peace.

    The Archivist is not at peace."

    John has successfully cored himself to escape the Beholding, and the empty space in his head makes a great nest for the Web.
    Meanwhile, Martin needs to make some hard decisions to get him back, and those decisions sadly include Elias Bouchard.

    (Reading the first part of the series is greatly recommended. The fic is completely finished and will update every day.)

    Summary

    "What are you?"

    The answer comes quick, enthusastic:

    "I'm fairly certain I'm intended as a, uh, gift."

    Jon predictably falters.

    "I'm sorry, a what?"

    "You know, a present. Something given without the expectation of return or payment. Not big on birthdays as a kid, huh? That's sad."

    "I know what a gift is. What I don't understand is how you classify as one."

    "Aw, now that hurts." Gerard cuts a smile from under the hair falling over his face, sun catching on the metal of his piercings as he flexes his mouth,

    "I was sent back by the man upstairs, I think. And by man I of course mean the demonic voyeur you're under the employ of."

    "You were sent back to...to the institute? For what?"

    "I think I was sent back to one specific member of the institute."

    A falter, picked up quickly as Jon begins to understand:

    "To...me?"

    👁

    Gerry's sent back from the dead, but for what purpose he and Jon struggle to understand.

    Characters will be added to the tags once they appear in the fic!!

    Summary

    Georgie is Melanie's emergency contact, but she didn't really expect to have to respond to a call about her maybe-kind-of-they-haven't-really-talked-about-it-girlfriend pulling something so drastic to quit her job

    Summary

    He couldn’t help but watch Jon. After watching him for so long out of care, though not always admiration and love, as Jon could be a dick. Martin didn’t know when he realized he was in love with Jon. Was it after Jane Prentis? Was it when he lived in the Institute? He couldn’t tell. Those days blended together slowly with each passing day, to the point where it was so subtle he hardly noticed.
    He had watched Jon more and more after he had told Martin about a way they could quit. He knew that the other was quietly scheming, but Jon would never. He couldn’t, could he? Martin wasn’t sure if Jon could even survive without statements. He had been looking weaker lately. Only reading old statements, never tearing them out of random passers by. He didn’t think Jon even ate actual food anymore. He hadn’t seen him eat anything, or drink anything aside from tea and coffee. But that, the hot caffeinated drinks, was normal Jon behaviour.
    He hadn’t expected this though.

    Summary

    "You can't be serious." Jonathan Sims raises his eyes at last to properly look at Georgie, expecting her to laugh and make some quip about finally getting him to put the damn book down, at least.

    "Well, I am," she shoots back.

    He sets his book aside and turns fully towards her, betrayal clear on his face. "A blind date, really?"

    Jon makes the frankly terrible decision to go on a blind date with one Martin Blackwood. Fate ensues. AU where Jon and Georgie are still friends, Georgie likes finding dates for her friends, Martin doesn't work at the institute, and everyone is just a bit happier while canon spooky stuff goes on in the background. Takes place juuust barely pre-canon in the beginning but catches up quickly. Inspired as usual by the wonderful conversations with my friend RavenXavier/somuchbetterthanthat.

    Summary

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. In this case, hell is Mount Massive Asylum, a mental institution owned by the corrupt and powerful Magnus Corporation. Everyone knows that something terrible is being done there, but attempts to uncover the secrets may only serve to unravel everything further.

    Gerard tries to right the wrongs his mother committed. Basira searches for her partner and finds far more than she could ever have anticipated. Martin attempts to keep himself alive to find someone he can only hope isn’t dead. Melanie investigates the asylum after receiving a message about the events happening there.

    All four have good intentions, but on the road they’re on, there’s no way to go but down.

    Summary

    At the end of season 1, Martin didn't find Gertrude's body in the tunnels.
    Without anything for Jon's growing paranoia to fixate on, the relationships between Jon and Martin, Tim and Martin, and in a slightly different way, Jon and Tim, were able to flourish rather than flounder. So when the time came to face down The Unknowing, they were...a different kind of ready.
    Now it's over, and they're all alive, and all too aware that life is short. And With their new relationship still in its early days, they've decided to take it very seriously, and buy a home together.

    Summary

    Jon has never Known a cat before. He wouldn't have said it was possible, except now the door in his mind eases open, just a crack, just enough for the thoughts of a happy, lazy feline to meander quietly into his heart.

    Summary

    Jon is twelve the first time it happens.

    He’s not sure what triggers it, exactly; it might have been his parents arguing quietly outside his door, or maybe a loud noise caught him off guard. Regardless, he starts in his bedroom with an atlas spread out on the floor in front of him. And he ends standing in the middle of a cobblestone street he doesn’t recognize during a thunderstorm.

    There’s a moment of panic, a moment when he wishes he had a raincoat or an umbrella. But he realizes soon after that he doesn’t have to worry – the rain is falling through him.
