    Summary

    You find yourself in a precious garden, being the party guest to a very curious man with shining green eyes that serves you delicious tea, sandwiches and desserts, while telling you an interesting love story:

    Jon plummets to the past or maybe an alternate reality. Here, memoryless, he finds the only person he has any recollection of: Jonah Magnus.

    As Jon rediscovers his powers, learns and teaches Jonah about the Dread Powers, he would find himself in a slow simmer relationship with the man, while trying to navigate the Victorian Era, or something akin.

    Summary

    "What year is it?"

    His tongue is dry and Jonah still feels paralyzed. There is a sudden pressure at his throat, a ribbon wrapped around his muscles that tugs upward, forcing his lips to move in a way that he knows is supernatural.

    “May 29th, 1803,” he gasps and clutches at his neck to fight the sensation even as it goes slack and begins to fade.

    Between death and a do-over, Jon would have tentatively chosen ‘do-over’. Of course, even when he and Martin get another chance, things become complicated and now they are faced with how to save this new reality while living with their former arch nemesis pre-avatarhood and whilst adjusting to the new time period. Chaos, as expected, ensues.

    Summary

    "The world has cried out against us both, but it has always worshipped you. It always will worship you."


    -Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

    Love was a strange word for the relationship between Jonah Magnus and anyone so unfortunate as to fall in love – or in any other emotion for that matter – with him.

    Summary

    "Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic."


    -Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

     

    "He retrieved those bones sadly enough when the time came. Bones that you can still find in my office, if you know where to look."


    -Elias Bouchard, The Magnus Archives, "Nothing Beside Remains"

    In the end, Jonah Magnus does find use what's left of Barnabas Bennett.

    Written as part of Jonah Magnus Week 2021 for the prompt 'Bones' (thought it arguably works for 'Possession' as well)

    Summary

    There was no body in the coffin when they buried it. Given it was sitting in the Panopticon, this wasn’t much of a surprise to Jonah, who was watching the event from the far back pretending to be an assistant saddened by the death of his employer.
    Really, this ought to have been a funeral for young William rather than him, but given whose body was standing here Jonah supposed everyone else could be forgiven. After all, it’s not that anyone knew he was still alive. He suspected no one knew, at least; a few of his once-closer acquaintances gave him odd looks.
    He was perhaps a bit put out by how few people attended. True, he had lived to an exceptional age and most of those he knew had already died, but he had thought he’d known a few who were still alive.

    Summary

    Of humans and monsters. How the former come undone and the latter rise from their ashes. Of how the line blurs, between the two.

    Summary

    A newer composition, Jonah had been quite interested in La Campanella and had tried to play it once or twice in his own time. He barely knew the accompaniment. 

    But the others were watching, and Jonah would not allow himself to be perceived as anything less than perfect. The violin played the impressive parts, yes, and while the piano part was simple, he did not want to falter, so while he easily fell into playing it, even losing himself in the music at one point, he stayed focused. He had to be perfect.

    Summary

    “Jonah Magnus.” The cloudy silhouette snarled as it’s hand clamped tightly around Jonah's ascot. That was indeed his name, but Jonah couldn’t begin to fathom what he did to have it spat out with such hatred.

    But nonetheless, Jonah was a gentleman and he would kindly address the angry figure as politely as possible, “Yes, and you are?”

    “What?” The form spluttered as it slowly came into focus. Ah, yes. That probably wasn’t the proper response to being held at gunpoint by a random stranger. Must have been the blow to his head.

    (Or in which Jonathan Sims goes back in time and tries to pull a Terminator, but fails and Jonah Magnus finds a new mystery to solve.)

    Summary

    There was a small stack of unopened letters on Jonah’s desk. A number of them contained stories of hauntings or mysterious happenings; most of them were assuredly false, though Jonah believed some might be true. But, sitting at the top of the stack—and had been sitting there for a month—was a letter from Barnabas Bennett. 

    At first, letters from him would come every day; Jonah would find them sitting on his desk where they had not been before. Then one a week. And now, none came. It’s been nearly a month since this last one arrived, and Jonah knew that no more would be coming after.

    Summary

    "A man who is master of himself can end a sorrow as easily as he can invent a pleasure."
