    Summary

    Gerry never meant to tie himself to the Magnus Institute, alright? But he never thought he'd outlive Gertrude Robinson, either, and look how that worked out. It wasn't like working for the grumpy new Archivist was the worst thing in the world - he could still prevent the rituals this way, and try to keep his fellow archival assistants away from danger, even the ones who seemed pretty convinced he was a murderer.

    (In which the Head Archivist has four assistants, a rather recognisable book-burning goth tries to hide himself beneath the Eye, and Jon should really learn to read the news.)

    Summary

    Love is Insane

    We all know the story of The Magnus Archives, but here it is anew, another route, another game, another bid to stop the world from ending...

    Mallory Honmore, a writer recently out of university, takes the position as Archivist at the Magnus Institute, meeting many people along the way and experiencing things - natural and unnatural, amazing and dangerous, beautiful and cruel - that will change her, and her friends, and the world, forever.

    Summary

    The front door shut him onto the porch. It was still sunny outside. He’d lost enough blood that he didn’t register the warmth. He deluded himself into imagining he’d heard the slam of the cab door, the song of someone swearing. He listed onto his side, and the midday sky was full of stars, the hunter scattered into swinging pinpricks of light.

    Or: Gerard Keay and Michael Crew (ages sixteen through twenty-three), old stories, gravity, and seven years’ worth of things unsaid.

    Summary

    When Jon accidentally reads a Leitner-ized artbook, he falls into an unbreakable slumber. With the Unknowing on the horizon, Martin and Tim must journey through the Cosmosphere, a series of dream worlds created from his psyche, in order to free him from the Leitner's curse.

    (a.k.a. the Reyvateil!Jon fic that everyone would have asked for if Ar Tonelico wasn't a cult classic)

    (updates Mondays at Why o'Clock EST)

    Summary

    “Statement of Martin Blackwood, regarding…” Jon looks at him. Looks at him. The look of a boss whose employee was late three times last week, the look of a man who was just busy doing something really important and now he’s here, doing this instead. “...why he stole a grieving family’s oven gloves.”

    -

    Martin has a run in with a deadly Leitner, leaving him choking on his unrequited love.

    Summary

    Martin turns it over and looks at the front cover again. The woman is still smiling brightly, one hand on her cocked hip and the other raised invitingly. Something blooms in his chest at the sight of her immaculate outfit, her contented expression. Envy? Longing? It’s silly, but she looks so perfectly gratified in her role: she is a Good Housekeeper, and she knows it. Martin’s never been even half that sure of himself.

    He shakes his head at the flight of fancy. It’s just a book. Mrs. Meek—if that’s who the woman on the cover is supposed to be—isn’t even real.

    *

    Martin finds a book that's sure to improve his and Jon's home life!

    This is just something I wrote for fun and wanted to share! Updates will probably be a bit unpredictable.

    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    A fic of BigTed's hanahaki fic "Full, Riotous Bloom". Set after chapter 6. Should also be readable as a standalone fic if you're familiar with hanahaki, but why would you want to? FRB is great, go read it.

    Martin would literally rather die than admit his feelings. But the next person who has a run-in with this Leitner deserves as much of a head start as he can give them.

    Summary

    Martin's life has been completely unremarkable in every way, save for a few minor details; his hair suddenly turning white over a month ago; his work barely-friendship with Head Archivist Sasha James, who has no assistants at all; and a recurring nightmare where he just so happens to kill the most beautiful man he's ever seen.

    Then he gets pulled into another dimension. And the thing is this: Jon is real, alive, and very much afraid.
