    Summary

    He can smell the scent of decay and somehow he knows he's drawing closer to the Gathering Spire. The intricate shining webbing that held it tall was hard to miss, and the flashing light from The Beyond could be seen in even the darkest of nights. Now, it was his only beacon in the swirling winds that surrounded him. He has to reach the spire. He has to.

    Summary

    “He just showed up the other day for the first time in, so far as I can tell, ever, and no one thinks it’s even a little bit weird? Something’s not right.”

    Martin paused for a moment.

    Jon was, of course, hoping in vain that his pointing it out would bring some sudden revelation, and then the two would set out with some half-brained scheme to Expose Michael For What He Really Was. They would go and tell Tim, who would tell Sasha, and it would be rather like old times: the four of them charging recklessly into something bigger than they understood, and coming away with some wild memory of their recent escapade, or something new and terrible and grand to ponder, or the truth, or whatever it was they went looking for.

    But Martin just said, “Jon, are you sure you’re feeling alright?” and Jon sighed.

    Summary

    “So,” the creature smiled, a twisted thing of fangs and woven deceit, “before we go any further. Hello Archivist.”
    An arm reached up to tilt his hat chivalrously at her. He fixed his octet of arachnid eyes to hers, and Sasha felt her breath catch in her throat.
    “I’m Mr. Spider.”

    Jonathan Sims had always hated spiders. The phantom sensations of silk cloying down his throat, of skittering legs and venomous bites.
    He was always meant to be a part of Mother’s plan, except this time the book did not land where it may have. This time, the door did not close shut.
    Mr. Spider wants more.
    This time, the door creaked back open.

    Based on apocalypsokane’s comic

    Summary

    Jon has been acting odd lately. Sasha begins to notice strange events occur around the same time, and she can't help but feel that they're somehow related. She's determined to find out what exactly is going on in the Magnus Institute.

    Summary

    Summary

    "I haven't played the guitar in years," Gerry protested weakly. They knew there was no way Mike was going to budge on this, but a man could dream.

    "It's like riding a bike. Once you learn you never really forget," Mike said, taking another sip of his tea. He made a face; it had probably gone cold by now. That or he put too much sugar into it. Mike hated sweets almost as much as he hated the floral tea Gerry liked. Tea snob.

    "I never learned how to ride a bike," Gerry said, though his voice was clearly resigned.

    "Sounds like a you problem," Mike said, leaning onto the table. Gerry kicked him, and the blonde cursed under his breath. Gerry would pay for that later, but in the moment it was very satisfying.

     

    In which Gerry and Mike find love, friendship, and the power of Music! (And incredible acts of violence. Can't forget the violence!)

    Summary

    Jonah Magnus is gone, his spirit dragged into oblivion by a spiteful ex-lover, and Elias Bouchard is back in control of his body for the first time in decades.

    All he wants in the aftermath is to slip away from the Institute without anyone seeing him, which seems nigh impossible in the stronghold of the Eye.

    But then a new door appears.

    Summary

    “Becoming” is a funny word.

    A child becomes an adult. A seed becomes a plant, and a leaf. Batter becomes a cake. An idea becomes a project. Linear progression.

    There is no real change here, not at the basest level. A grown man is the same person he was at eight, only with a few more layers added. A seed always had the beginnings of a stem and basic leaf within it, just below the surface. Nothing is added in an oven but heat. An idea simply becomes realized. One source to a final product.

    What Helen was is multitude, binary, so can it really be said that she has become Helen?

    Summary

    MARTIN
    I keep expecting someone to come ‘round and say, “Oh, sorry, big mistake, you’re not meant to be here”— but it hasn’t happened yet, so. (awkward laugh)

    JON
    I’m— Is it weird that I’m looking forward to technicals? (beat) Well, I am.

    MELANIE
    Yeah, I’m not scared of Elias. I used to investigate hauntings, so I’m pretty used to pasty old guys hovering over me.

    There are no supernatural entities in the world, and there never have been; the wildest thing currently happening in Martin Blackwood's life is that he's about to compete in his first episode of The Great British Bake Off.

    A story about bread, starry summer evenings, and learning to love life again.

    Summary

    Taryn doesn't move a muscle as he approaches. "You're in exactly the right place," Annabelle had said on the phone. "If you stay with them, you will be safe. For a while. Try to make sure he doesn't kill you first." Taryn would have said something in response, but their trachea was filled with mud, and the only way they wanted to talk the person on the other end of the call was with their fists.

    "What are you?" Jon plants in front of them, a sound like faraway thunder underscoring his words.

    Taryn's scalp tingles the way it might when you’re all alone at night, but you feel like something is watching you. But they aren’t afraid—just confused.

    "I guess I don't understand the question," Taryn says.

    Summary

    “Well you’re my partner, aren’t you? We’re working this together.”

    --
    When Head Archivist Sasha establishes a policy of doing fieldwork in pairs, Jon has to learn how to work with Martin as they deal with the latest monster of the week. Hilarity insues.

    Summary

    As the Head Archivist at the Magnus Institute, Sasha has been having a rough time, dealing with the "Flesh Hive" or whatever. At least the thing that calls itself "Michael" was willing to give them some information... but it's not the only one with an interest in what happens at the Institute.

    Featuring Avatar Jon, Archivist Sasha, Bastard Elias, and the statement of Joe Spooky, regarding sinister happenings in downtown.
