    Summary

    'I’m always in pain, Jon wants to say, even as he dismisses the thought as melodramatic. Between his growing collection of old wounds and scar tissue, the supernatural hunger for statements that hasn’t been truly satiated in months, and the unpredictable aches and strains his body threw off day by day long before he ever set foot in the Institute, some level of pain and discomfort follows Jon wherever he goes now. He is used to being in pain. He’s not used to someone holding his hand as he suffers through it.'

    Jon catalogs the comforts he receives, and wonders how long he will be allowed to keep them.

    Summary

    Once, Jon had been self-conscious about his grays. It had been an outward sign of weakness, or so he’d thought. A signal of the truth he’d tried so hard to hide: that he was overworked, frequently tired, prematurely frail. Only human, in other words. Before he’d come to work at the Magnus Institute—before he’d taken that fateful promotion—he’d resented being only human.

    How times change.

    ---

    Jon and Martin (and Martin) get their happily ever after.

    Summary

    “Ah,” Tim’s face clears from the clouds of his confusion, and it’s abruptly replaced by the weather front of something heavier, a sad kind of comprehension. He adjusts his cap a bit further back from his face. “Let me guess, and tell me if I’m barking up the wrong tree here. You’ve not been to G-A-Y before, have you?”

    Martin gives a little stiff shake of his head and wishes Tim would stop talking.

    “You’ve – and again, I might be wrong – but you’ve never actually been to a gay bar before.”

    Or: Series 1 Tim and Martin go drinking.
