    Summary

    Jonah had a plan. It was a very good plan, too. Hire an Avatar of the Vast into the institute so they could eventually mark the Archivist.

    Simple, right?

    Well apparently he underestimated a few things. Namely Jon's scepticism, Martin's tenderness, Sasha's curiosity, and Tim's ability to flirt with everything and everyone.

    Now the Archives are in disarray, his Archivist knows way too much, the assistants are still annoying alive and, yes, there is still an Avatar of the Vast flying around (Figuratively and literally).

    ——

    Basically TMA expect Mike Crew joins the archival gang. There is no logical reason to why I did this, except why not ;)

    Summary

    Darquesse had ruined Valkyrie's- now Stephanie's- life. She couldn't look her parents in the eyes after what she'd been forced to do. She needed to get away from Ireland, from magic. Thankfully, her mortal second cousin Tim has an apartment in London he's more than happy to let her stay at. It'll be good to relax, even if her new job is kind of strange.

    Tim, Sasha and Martin had been working in the archives for about six weeks when Tim's Irish second cousin had showed up. She seemed cool, if a little distant. All Sasha was saying is that she did NOT have a crush, and whatever Stoker had told you was a lie.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In which a broken sorcerer from Dublin helps be the glue the Archives needs, and in return, they do their best to help fix her.

    Summary

    Lyfrassir Edda has experienced something that none should ever experience; being used as the conduit for not one, but two apocalypses. First, by Jonah Magnus to turn their first home of Earth into a buffet for the Fears. The second, by the Bifrost to consume their second home, Midgard. They didn't think they would get another chance, let alone be reunited with their love and a one-time friend.

    Countless years later, they have that second chance. They can end. It. All.

    Or; Lyf, Martin, and Tim are here to ruin all of Jonah's plans.

    Summary

    Jonah Magnus has been planning a great ritual for nearly 200 years and he finally has it in his grasp. He's learned how to channel all of the powers into this world and, though he may have slipped up a bit, he has his candidate. Finally, the world will be his.

    At least, it would, if it weren't for the Youtubers that have suddenly taken an interest in the Magnus Institute.

    Summary

    “Oh.” Tim shifted a little bit, allowing Sasha to tug the file out from under her. She grinned. “How do we all feel about a combination date night and statement follow up?”

    Summary

    The Archivist reads a statement about a table. The Mother of Spiders decides she's changed her mind and what information will and will not be withheld from Jonathan's mind. Some things are better when Sasha James is saved. Some things are worse. Others are simply just a different shade of tragedy.

    ________________________

    Sasha Lives! AU where Jon is actually about to save Sasha from the Not!Them and how they all cope with the aftermath. And at its core, the story remains the same.

    Summary

    The door clicks shut behind him and vanishes, but Michael doesn't appear. "Come on," Jon says irritably. "I've already agreed to this. You don't have to spend any more time trying to confuse me into doing something stupid."

    Michael laughs, and Jon sees movement in one of the mirrors in the endless hallway. "I just enjoy the anticipation so much," it says. "Something terrible is coming, but it isn't quite here yet."

    Summary

    "I haven't played the guitar in years," Gerry protested weakly. They knew there was no way Mike was going to budge on this, but a man could dream.

    "It's like riding a bike. Once you learn you never really forget," Mike said, taking another sip of his tea. He made a face; it had probably gone cold by now. That or he put too much sugar into it. Mike hated sweets almost as much as he hated the floral tea Gerry liked. Tea snob.

    "I never learned how to ride a bike," Gerry said, though his voice was clearly resigned.

    "Sounds like a you problem," Mike said, leaning onto the table. Gerry kicked him, and the blonde cursed under his breath. Gerry would pay for that later, but in the moment it was very satisfying.

     

    In which Gerry and Mike find love, friendship, and the power of Music! (And incredible acts of violence. Can't forget the violence!)

    Summary

    Jon and Martin make a plan to send Jon back in time to prevent the apocalypse. With the help of The Spiral and The End, they make a plan that quickly crashes down on them.
    With Future Jon, aka the Archivist, stuck in the past, he has to help his past self fix the past.
    ---
    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

    Whoever accesses this tape won’t care that it was her first day in her new role. On the flipside, whoever accesses this tape can suck it up and fast-forward through her introduction if they’re in a hurry, because it’s Sasha’s first day in her new role, and she is excited.

    --

    Or, Elias appoints Jon and Sasha as Co-Head Archivists, and all that follows.

    Summary

    The Eye isn't happy with how the end of the world turned out. Neither are Jonah and Jon. There is no other option but to rewind time and go down a different path. But time is hard for The Spiral and The Web likes to meddle.

    This is how Jon finds himself back in his eight year old body with all his memories, some of his powers intact and a strange bracelet around his right wrist. Saving the world, Jon realizes soon enough, is much harder when no one takes you seriously.

    Summary

    Michael is bored, it simply has nothing to do! Whenever it tries to bother Sasha, something uncomfortable coils in its chest (something uncomfortable is always coiled in its chest, but at the thoughtsightidea of Sasha James, it twists and writhes and chokes out everything else and it's confusing even though everything is always confusing, and-), but no matter.

    It will simply have to make its own fun.

    There's a house it built a while ago. Not inside its door but very much outside of it. Built? Maybe created would be a better word. Or rather, changed, for the walls and structure had always been there but Michael had gone inside and made the thing its own. Perhaps it was time to pay the place a visit.

    Summary

    The first thing he notices is the smell. A damp, mouldy sort of scent, thick and cloying as it catches in his throat. He tries not to breathe through his nose, but it doesn't make a difference; the odour is so pervasive he can practically taste it.

    The second thing he notices is the cold. There is a blanket wrapped tight around his body, but it does little to ease the bone-deep chill permeating the air around him. He pulls the blanket closer, but he knows it will not help.

    The third thing is the knock.

    Summary

    A story of two boys falling in love, becoming monsters, and what happens after.

     

    “You’re telling it wrong,” Michael protested.

    “How could I possibly? It’s my recollections.”

    Michael rolled his eyes inwardly at the pretension of ”recollections,”—it was a month and a half ago—but forged ahead.

    “I wasn’t trying to seduce you! I mean, look at you.” He waved his hands, encompassing Elias’s aristocratic nose, his wavy dark hair, the artistic line of him perched on the fire escape, like a figure from a Leyendecker, slumming it. “I was just having fun.”

    Elias preened, taking a long drag on the joint and tilting his head to let out the smoke in a thin stream, lip curled.

    “And yet,” he murmured, watching Michael from the corner of his eye. And Michael, bold from the version of himself Elias had created, put his cool fingers against the side of Elias’s neck and kissed him.

    Michael had this way of never pulling you to him when he kissed you. Endlessly giving, he always came to you.
