    Summary

    “Is that a body,” Tim blurts before he can stop himself, rising to his feet. Martin looks, if possible, even more scared.

    “He’s alive!” he hisses, almost defensively. “It’s not - it’s not Gertrude again, I didn’t kill him, he just – I don’t know what happened to him, I just found him in the stacks like this.”

    “And you dragged him up here?” Tim says, and then registers several things at once – the build, the hair texture; the little round scars peppering a pair of thin hands and an awfully familiar face. “Wait, is that Jon?”

    Jon stumbles back into an earlier Archive, looking for a way to fix the world. (Or, mom says it's my turn for the obligatory time travel au)

    Summary

    The first time Jonah Magnus hears about the Archivist he is still himself and believes he is going to live forever. 
    The second time isn’t really a second. He has been looking for the Archivist for almost a decade. He has sent many letters, gotten many in return but there was no sign of the illusive man. 
    Afterward, he stops counting.

    Summary

    Surely, there must be something—god knows Martin has been scratching at every wall, tearing through as much of this place as he can in search of something, anything, that could let Jon stay here in comfort.

    A moment, just a moment. It’s all he asks.

    But this morning, it had taken Jon entirely too long to recognize him.

    Summary

    “Did you know I don’t have a heartbeat anymore? Cut me, and I don’t bleed. I don’t eat, I don’t sleep, I’m cold all the way through. Just a walking corpse, really. I did die, after all.”

    “So did I.”

    “No. No you didn’t. You almost died, and you chose not to. I chose to die and I was brought back. It’s an important distinction, Jon. You still bleed.” And he puts his heart into it, leaning slightly towards the Archivist with one fist balled over his sternum, and it feels important, but Jon doesn’t quite follow and he’s too afraid to ask. Here, between knowledge and death, there is too much that should remain unsaid.

     

    If it's fear that reduces men to beasts, what makes a man?

    Jon is the Archivist, and all that entails. He also remembers that, once, he was human.
