    Summary

    That’s when she notices what he has in his lap: a whole entire cat, sprawled across his legs like they’re its rightful throne. The man’s hands are buried in its fur, and Georgie finds herself smirking at the man just a bit as she realizes that she’s found the person who sneaks away from the party to go and cuddle the house pet instead. There’s always one. Hell, she’s done that herself more than once. 

    “I was just-- I got lost! While looking for the bathroom,” he says all in a defensive rush. He literally looks off to the side like a shamefaced kid, a guilty look flashing over his face as he, almost absolutely for one hundred percent of a fact, lies to her. 

    “I see,” she says. “Do you want for me to show you where it is?” 

    “N-- no, no thank you. That’s alright. I’ll manage on my own.” 

    “Okay,” she says. 

    She stands there. He stays crouched there on the floor, clearly trying not to fidget. She doesn’t make any move to leave. Neither does he. He looks at her, looking so uncomfortable that it almost resembles pain. 

    “... I don’t want to move her,” he finally admits sheepishly. One of his hands smooths over the cat in his lap, and she gives an approving purr.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims faces the opportunity to go back to undo the work of The Eye and reshape the earth in accordance to the wishes of the Archive, but he doesn't go back alone.
    Jonah Magnus, Arbiter of the Eye and orchestrator of said apocalypse is not about to let his hard work be so blithely undone.

    When the world winds itself back to January 20th, 2015, Sasha James has been promoted to Head Archivist after the bloke who was supposed to be Head Archivist picked his team of assistants and ditched before day 1. Now in charge of the disorganised Archives, Sasha struggles to piece together the loose threads connecting the statements into something that makes sense.

    There's a new supercomputer in Artefact Storage that supposedly has all the answers. Having access to the Archivist Simulator could make her job a lot easier. Or make it a lot more complicated.

    Summary

    Martin has always liked the idea of love at first sight.

    It’s such a romantic idea, the whole thing of it. Seeing someone and instantly feeling that strange, twisting feeling deep inside that every single media likes to obsess over. Of knowing you are in love within the day, petals falling from your mouth and warmth filling your chest as love burrows deep, vines twisting through your lungs.

    He always liked the idea of it.

    And then Jonathan Sims starts working at the Magnus Institute.
