    Summary

    "Whatever it is you're going to do, don't." Brian levelled his gaze with Jonny's, interrupting the first mate's ricocheting ping-pong ball of thought. 

    "Who said I was going to do anything?" said Jonny, in what was perhaps an attempt to sound like someone who was not purposefully not forming a plan for an act of stupidity so pure it belonged in a spchurch.

    Summary

    A lot of things change from dimension to dimension, from dream-memory to dream-memory. Two things stay constant throughout the alternate lives Ashes could have lived; they never get Mechanized, and they're a fucking tragedy.

    Or: Somewhere out there, there was a world where a rising star of the Lucky Sevens decided to hire a tailor. A lot of things went wrong after that. It was fun while it lasted though.

    Summary

    Now, I don’t want to sound like some kind of old crank, but back in my day, we didn’t have a human librarian calling fouls every time a regular librarian took a bite out of a sleeping child. And you know what? Those of us who survived learned from that experience. I, for one, learned never to sleep in an unsecured location a librarian might be able to track my scent to.

    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

    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.)
