    Summary

    The s3 Archives staff goes out for Thai food. Probably unsurprisingly, it's a (mostly) unmitigated disaster. Perish the thought Martin gets to eat his Pad See Ew in peace.

    Summary

    "You see," Elias said softly, "people always have this idea that only living things can be scarred - and they're right, of course. But a building is a living thing, Martin. And the ground can be scarred, too."

    "I don't have any scars," Martin said.

    "Yes, you do," Elias said. "You just need the right light to see them."

    Summary

    Martin can see the way that Jon's hands shake, and the dark bruises around his eyes. He notices the jitters and the skipped meals and the way that Jon is first in the Archives in the morning, and last out at night, assuming he ever leaves.

    It can't go on. And Martin thinks that he might have a solution.

    Summary

    "You can't be serious." Jonathan Sims raises his eyes at last to properly look at Georgie, expecting her to laugh and make some quip about finally getting him to put the damn book down, at least.

    "Well, I am," she shoots back.

    He sets his book aside and turns fully towards her, betrayal clear on his face. "A blind date, really?"

    Jon makes the frankly terrible decision to go on a blind date with one Martin Blackwood. Fate ensues. AU where Jon and Georgie are still friends, Georgie likes finding dates for her friends, Martin doesn't work at the institute, and everyone is just a bit happier while canon spooky stuff goes on in the background. Takes place juuust barely pre-canon in the beginning but catches up quickly. Inspired as usual by the wonderful conversations with my friend RavenXavier/somuchbetterthanthat.

    Summary

    Then a man walks past him, he looks at him, and a swooping sensation in his gut says yes. It isn’t the vampire part of him. He’s just… really pretty. Really Martin’s type. Short and small, neat and well put together, tired and professional, with perfect posture and a quick, impatient stride. He looks like he works in an office. He looks about a decade older than Martin. He looks important, and dignified, and hot. In that very particular way that Martin’s always been into. 

    Not that… not that attractiveness should have anything to do with picking a meal. Oh, it sounds bad to call people meals. Victims? Even worse. 

    Martin should in fact not pick this man, specifically because of how attracted he is to him. It would be the responsible thing to do. 

    Except he’s already following him. And he’s hungry.

    Summary

    Elias Bouchard realizes three things simultaneously: He is definitely no longer in Artifact Storage, people are shouting at him, and he is stone cold sober.

    Summary

    “They didn’t say: who is it?”

    “We don’t have her name. I told your boss. Didn’t he explain that to you?”

    The man sighs, short and heavy. “I was just told that there was ‘an aggressive woman’ asking for me who ‘wouldn’t speak English’.”

    “And?”

    “And,” he sighs again, lightly, “you’d have to narrow that down a great deal before I could make an identification without seeing her.”


    It’s July 2017 and Jonathan Sims has quite enough to be thinking about without an unscheduled trip in the middle of the night.

    Summary

    The Lukases demand the Archivist marry into the family, and the Institute relies on them too much to say no. Peter is smug. Elias is fuming. Martin is suffering. Jon thinks this might be tolerable if only Peter would hurry up and leave him alone already.

    OR, the soap opera we call an Archives revolves around Peter Lukas this time.

    An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind

    When the Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute goes missing, her son steps in to fill her shoes. Gerard Keay has three semi-competent assistants, one disaster of an archive, and six months of chemo left to go. Perfect time to go meet some monsters, right?

    The Archives are his and stepping away from them, even for a night… it’s strange. Like he’s pretending to be someone else.

    Summary

    Tim scoffed. “What, you’re going to send Martin along with me? He doesn’t even leave the building these days.”
    “I was referring to myself,” Jon said peevishly.
    That earned him an even more incredulous look, which was frankly unfair. “Ah, no offense, boss,” Tim said slowly, “but I sort of thought dimly-lit basement offices were your natural habitat."

    Slight AU of MAG 037 "Burnt Offering." Tim finds evidence of the ritual circle from Jason North's statement, and Jon wants to go have a look in person.

    Newton Geiszler is not dead. Hermann Gottlieb will bring him home.

    Summary

    Newt Geiszler and Hermann Gottlieb saved the world once.

    That was a long time ago. Four years, to be exact. Since then they’ve been working for Hannibal Chau, and their world saving days are behind them. Newt authenticates kaiju specimens for Hannibal's international buyers, and Hermann balances the books back in Hong Kong. Neither of them ask any questions.

    It’s not a bad arrangement, until a terrifying new threat makes itself known in the Pacific.
