    Summary

    Jon hadn’t exactly forgotten that Martin was sleeping in the archives, per se, it had just… unfortunately slipped his mind.

    Or in which Jon and Martin are extremely sleep-deprived and traumatized and you know what, just a dash of Physical Touch couldn't hurt... it actually would be very nice, thank you.

    This is a partially pre-written fic, see notes for updating schedule

    Summary

    Jon reads a statement which infects him with a heat that threatens to consume him- unless he can manage to sleep with someone able to cancel it's affects. Elias offers his services, and Jon must make a choice.

    or

    Jon sputters. “Yes, but- but sex pollen? This is a fanfiction trope, not anything grounded in reality. There’s no reason for-”

    And then, as if it makes all the sense in the world, Elias leans in, and kisses him.

    Jon would be lying if he said he never thought of his boss this way before. Only idly, in the manner that anyone with an attractive boss might indulge in a midnight fantasy. He’d thought of the most basic of porn tropes; the performance review, begging for a raise or not to be fired. Each had fit Elias’ no nonsense attitude badly, like an untailored suit. He’d never quite imagined this.

    Summary

    “Thanks for checking on me, but I’m cold and tired and I’d really like to go home now.”

    “Ah, right. Here,” Tim pulled his own jacket off and swung it around her shoulders.

    She started, blinking as he pulled the hood up. “Wh- I can’t take your jacket!”

    “Sure you can,” Tim shrugged. It was cold, but he was headed back to the Institute anyway, and he had a spare there. It wasn’t far. 

    “No, really, I can’t. I don’t have any money to give you for it and-” 

    “Okay, okay,” Tim raised his hands in surrender. “Okay. I’ll just have to walk you home so you can give it back, then.”

    >>Wherein Tim walks home a waitress he just met, makes a fool of himself, and she calls him back.

    This came about because Tim Deserves Better and by God I'm going to give him Better.
    Rating may change.

    Summary

    Jon had a tendency to wander off as a child. He never realized he always went towards the coast.
    Years later, when he dives into the depths of Artefact Storage to confirm the existence of a mysterious red calliope, the proof of the statement's truth isn't all he finds. There's a box with a pile of brown-grey fur, and it's what he's been looking for.

    Summary

    “Did you, uh,” Jon starts. “Do you know about the Doves typeface?” 

    “Oh, er– what?” 

    “It’s just that, uh, the creator of Doves type threw all of its original printing matrices into the Thames.”

    “That’s very, um—” 

    “—He wanted to keep them from his business partner.” 

    “I didn’t—”

    “—It took him 170 trips over the course of five months.” 

    “Right.”

     
    Jon unloading information concerning his highly specific interests across the years and Martin being enamored by it. Featuring: haunted bridges, fun font facts, and canon-typical gay yearning.

    Summary

    You had made a mistake working for the Magnus Institute. Worms? A paranoid boss who now thought that any of your coworkers was a murderer? A head of the company that you swore was suspicious but was too nervous to confront? This could be described as a hellish job. Everyone, including you, was stressed,
    So, of course you didn't tell anyone about the fractals you swore you saw out of the corner of your eye, that you felt the feeling of being watched. You didn't expect anything of it anyways.

    Much less an entity you would've not ever believed was real taking an interest in you.

    Summary

    Martin set his glass on the table, and with shaky hands, unfolded his dare. The first word he saw was kiss, which sent his heart hammering, his breaths rattling in his ribcage like a bag of cheap marbles. The second word wasn’t really a word. It was a name.

    Jon.

    “At midnight,” Sasha added unhelpfully.

     

    Or, Martin eats a few grapes and makes more than a few choices.

    Summary

    Martin desperately attempted to steady his rising panic by looking around the room to find something to focus on, but when he saw the walls closing in on him – were they moving before? - and paid attention to the small puddle of blood that formed on the floor from the cut in his hand – which was bigger than he originally anticipated – his eyes fluttered shut yet again.

    Obviously, Martin was aware he was in the middle of experiencing a panic attack. So why was he still convinced he was about to die – and why did he not mind the possibility of that thought becoming reality at all?

    or: martin has a panic attack, but for the the first time, he is not alone during the aftermath.

    Summary

    Martin’s nervous.

    I mean- who wouldn't be? First date? First date with your boss? First date with your boss that hated you until two weeks before he painstakingly stuttered out an awkwardly flustered date proposal?

    It’s reasonably nerve-racking.

    Summary

    For the first time, Jon looked down, confused, at the mound of tangled yarn beneath his fingertips. It seemed as if Martin had bundled Jon’s cup in a jumper, and not a very good jumper at that. The stitch pattern changed every few centimeters, with no apparent regularity or reason. The cosy bulged in some places around the cup’s circumference, left threadbare in others.

    “I knitted it myself,” Martin explained, brightening with pride.

     

    Or, Martin stress-knits (but isn't very good at it), and Tim and Sasha enlist Jon to clean up their mess.

    Summary

    On the desk is a statement—a statement Jon knows to belong to Andre Ramao.

    Jon knows this day. This day dug holes beneath his skin, gouged him, one of many marks much deeper than the outline of a paper clip against his cheek. Not yet, it hasn’t. A glimmer of hope: not yet.

    But why here? Why now? There are few days that Jon would voluntarily stumble through a second time, and 29th July is not one of them. So, who chose this?

     

    Or, Jon wakes up in 2016 and gets a second (and third and fourth and fifth) chance.

    Summary

    He knew full well that by holiday, Elias meant Christmas. But he never used the latter word, so technically, Jon wasn’t wrong to interpret it as any seasonal holiday.

    Perhaps there was a way he could hit two birds with one stone.

     

    Jon, Martin, Tim, and Sasha celebrate Hanukkah together.

    Summary

    When Jon, Sasha, and Tim take over the Magnus Institute archives in 2015, it comes with rumours of a ghost which Jon immediately dismisses. But a little research shows that someone did disappear from the Institute - a library assistant with few distinguishing features and even fewer connections - and he becomes a side project for the fracturing archival team, bringing them together over the mystery of who Martin Blackwood was, and what happened to him in 2003. As they find out more about the missing man, odd incidents start to occur around the archives, and to get ever more inexplicable...

    By all means, look into the mysteries buried in the stacks. Just don't be surprised when they start looking back.

    Summary

    Serves me well for sleeping on my own desk.

     

    It’s not the first time it happens, nor the second, but, as a loud noise accompanied by a soft curse reminds him, it’s the first time it happens with someone else here.

    Summary

    Basically, MAG200 was rough, so I have decided to write a S1 polycule fic that will hopefully make everyone feel better. Very fluffy and domestic.

    Just know that they're all dating except for Martin/Sasha, who are in a QPR. They work at the archives, but there are no fear entities.

    I'll try to update every Sunday, feel free to leave suggestions or bug me until the next update, hah!
