    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    In his two centuries as Head of the Magnus Institute and leader of the Cult of Beholding, Jonah has never encountered something like Jonathan Sims.

    Jon really wishes he hadn't attended that lecture, or, failing that, he found it easier to dismiss his kidnappers' paranormal claims.

    Summary

    A single thought screams above all: he's letting Elias, of all people, touch him.
    He shouldn't be letting Elias touch him.

    ---

    Elias would like to touch on Jon's future as an archive.
    He is warm and Jon is so very, very cold.

    Summary

    James Potter loved his son enough to die for him. Even knowing he was not his son by blood.

    Jonathan Sims was a monster. He could lie to himself about many things but that was not one of them. He didn't know how to be a father.

    Fortunately, he didn't find out about said son until he was nearly eighteen.

    Unfortunately, his son was a monster too.

    --

    Or, Harry Potter just wants to be loved and accepted. He just didn't expect to be loved by Death.

    Summary

    Who are we, Archivist? The little green eye on the back of his brain asks and he doesn’t know the answer. He should; he knows everything. Who is he? Who is—
    As everything comes back to his memory he feels his hands tremble and he lets out a groan, distorted in the non-existent air of the space. Jonathan Sims. The Archivist. The only one left to face the Fears and watch as they all meet their ends. He sucks in a shaky breath, and it feels just as redundant as before. [...]
    He remembers why he’s here. He needs to kill them. He scrambles to his feet, wincing at the pain in every muscle. What happened to the world? Was everyone already gone?
    We are beyond time, the little eye tells him again. They are inconsequential here.

    In which I explore “What if Jon managed to follow through with his plan to starve the Fear Entities to death” except with a happy ending, because I can and I say so. Please be sure to check out the warnings and stay safe <3

    Summary

    Once, long ago Jon might have flinched at what he was about to do. Extending an invitation to an elder god of horror should have at least made him flinch.

    But for his beloved husband Jonathan Sims would do anything.

    Summary

    Jon has recently been promoted to Head Archivist. Jon is quickly Becoming something else. He doesn't know what to do about it.

    The most pressing thing about all of this, the thing that burns through him every night as he lies awake turning it over in his mind, is why. Why is this happening, why is he feeling like this, why is he having strange new dreams that he can’t even remember, why why why? The questions claw at him like a physical need, until he’s choking on it. He wants to know, needs to know, and it’s like there’s a pressure building in his brain every time he asks the same question of himself and doesn’t get an answer. He wants to know, he’s practically sick with it.

    Summary

    When Jon became the Pupil he became something else. Something that was nothing like a person and was nothing like an Avatar. He no longer was a way to Feed or be Fed, he became a true part of Beholding, like a limb. Yet still detained in his human body, his humanity though fragile still clinging to it. His only containment of the last parts of humanity, holding his lover and trying to convince both of them that they would be alright.

    or

    Jon becomes a part of Beholding when he becomes Pupil and throws the entities off balance.

    Summary

    “So that’s it, then.”

    Jon’s voice is hoarse from screaming, from those first few moments where the Ceaseless Watcher poured itself into him without reservation. Here he stands in the pupil of the Eye itself, and it’s a struggle to keep himself blinking, to cling to his last vestige of humanity.

    (For the prompt: "Kissing tears from the other’s face." with Jon/Annabelle.)
