    Summary

    The thing is, Jonathan Sims is someone you’d call the police on if you saw him hanging around a school, those frazzled clothes and bags under his eyes, the frantic muttering and thousand-year stare.
    Yet there he sits, headteacher of The Magnus Institute for Gifted Young Minds.
    The name’s a bit misleading, it is. They’re in a bad part of town. The parents are either terrible or absent, and the kids—
    “They’re monsters,” his new and handsome coworker grins, when Martin’s signature on his contract is barely dry. “Absolute monsters. Get too close and you’ll lose some fingers. Or maybe your mind.”
    “They’re babies,” is all Martin can feebly manage, in reply, and Tim’s eyes narrow at the fondness in his voice.
    “You’ll learn.”

    Summary

    At their first holiday party together, the archival assistants play snog, marry, avoid. It brings up things Martin would rather it hadn't.

    5+1 kinda formula - going through the seasons with every office party this shitty institute throws. slow burn..... 5 parties they didn't and one they did you all know the drill. pining with a happy ending.

    Summary

    To be a monster is to be a hybrid signal, a lighthouse: both shelter and warning at once.

    Summary

    Inspired by @suspiciouslibrary's post on tumblr

    When Jon sleeps, he hurts people. So the solution is simple, right? He just has to stay awake.

    Set in the vicinity of s4, so be warned for spoilers if you're not caught up.

    Summary

    After reading Eric Delano’s Statement and talking to Martin, Jon decides to follow through and gouge out his eyes to try and escape monsterhood. He doesn’t expect to wake up years earlier in his old flat, where everything’s almost the way it used to be. He doesn’t expect to have more eyes than before, and new problems, and new nightmares.
    But he also doesn’t expect Martin to be a Mechs fan, or the chance to actually change things this time around.
    As it turns out, sometimes you need to give yourself permission to heal, and be open to the kindness and help of others in order for life to improve.
    And that’s definitely not just the case for Jon.

    OR: monster!mechs!jon travels back in time into a slightly different reality, and is bullied into healing through the power of found family.
    Everyone will live and there’s a happy ending... but until then, I'll do what I want. There shall be angst and fluff and crack-treated-seriously, and not everyone who’s dead in canon is dead here. I will basically rewrite everything, so … it's going to be LONG! Defintely a slow burn in far more ways than one ♡
    Additional/specific warnings in chapter notes where applicable.
