    Summary

    Martin Blackwood can't exactly say that his life is normal. It started out normal enough, but he's pretty sure that becoming a pseudo-immortal space pirate after being ripped open by a vampire doctor is a bit "out there". But he hasn't been home in centuries, and after the events of the Bifrost Incident, he really just wants to return to the mundane for a bit. Maybe he can tie up some loose ends while he's at it.

    The new archiving job and extra-spooky supernatural insanity wasn't exactly what he'd had in mind.

    ***

    An AU that explores Martin as a Mechanism during the TMA timeline.

    Summary

    In which the songs the Mechanisms sing aren't about people they've met, but about past lives they've lived. Each of them has a distinct birthmark that follows them from incarnation to incarnation. And each of them gets those memories back on their 300th birthday, at which point a whole new wave of crew drama ensues.

    Summary

    “One the morning of June 14, 1968
    A group of hippies fled into the mountains of Colorado to wait for doomsday.”

    The words of the radio transmission had a vague familiarity, just on the edge of her mind. Colorado was a place long destroyed, the known universe didn’t run on the Gregorian calendar any longer, and it had been Millenia since years were any less than 5 digits long. The captain couldn’t place where it would be from- it would’ve had to be from Earth, but how would an Earthen signal get the entire way out here?

    Summary

    I’ve been thinking about the Black Box. And everyone inside. I just... feel a connection to them. I spent so long staring, trying to make out their words, their motives... I saw each of them die.
    I peeked outside earlier. I’m trying to convince myself that the thin shimmering entrails of rainbow are just my paranoia.

    (AKA, in which Lyfrassir Edda comes to terms with their eldritch-invoked plurality.)

    Summary

    Lyfrassir didn’t know what they had expected, being the last surviving person of a cosmically destroyed galaxy. There hadn’t been much planning involved other than ‘Run’. So, it’s lucky that the narrative finds it suiting to find them. Just in time.

    Summary

    Some years before the arrival of the Ratatosk Express, Inspector Lyfrassir Edda learns that a certain prisoner has been "disarmed", as he's now considered too deadly to be allowed to keep his high-tech prosthetic. Regardless of how Lyfrassir feels about von Raum, that is unacceptable.

    Summary

    Before singing together in the role of lovers, the Mechanisms rehearse being sweet with each other in a way that fits the characters. Includes Ashes acting like Sigyn towards Tim in one low-key respect (pun intended), Marius taking two dates to a saloon for whiskey and maybe blood, and "Tales to be Told II" themed activities that escalate quickly.

    Summary

    Events from before the Ratatosk Express was completed. I'm adapting various parts of the Poetic Edda, and a few parts of the Prose Edda. Big focus will be on Loki and Thor's friendship because I'm care about they. But also there are two chapters without any of the main four characters.
