    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

    Gerard Keay hadn't meant to fall in love.

    He really hadn't. In fact, he actively avoided it.

    So far as he was concerned, it was an unnecessary luxury that he didn't have time for. Nice, sure, but something to be enjoyed by normal people with normal lives, not people like him.

    But then he met Michael.

    ***

    The story of two boys who knew better, but did it anyways. How they met, how they fell in love, how they broke, and how they died.

    Summary

    "Right, we'll start once everyone's arrived," Jonathan Sims, newly promoted Head Archivist at the Magnus Institute, says as he adjusts the buttons on his cuffs. He considers the scar that's wrapped around his right hand with momentary confusion.
    "Boss?" Tim holds his own hands out, palms up. He and Sasha stare back at him with mirrored blank expressions. "Everyone is here?"
    Jon blinks, mouth already twisting into a frown. He takes a sharp breath, about to snap something at the man, but then he lets the air out in a clipped sigh. The three of them stand in the heart of the Archives, unmoving, occasionally glancing around the room. Jon's frown settles into something less harsh... and more hesitant.
    "Yes, I suppose you're right. Everyone is here."

    Summary

    When Jonathan Sims returned from his six week absence from the Archives, the archival assistants were quietly relieved. The Archivist was never absent from the Archives for this long, and so maybe statement givers would return to their eloquence. However: his voice was right, his face was right, but his eyes were glassy. This was not the Archivist. This was a dress rehearsal.

    Title from Lose It by Oh Wonder.

    Summary

    Sasha James never thought she'd see the outside world. She always thought she would simply dream of the Festival of Lights while remaining in the towering panopticon, organizing Elias Bouchard's archive. All that changed when a handsome thief who went by the name of Tim Stoker tumbled in through the window, giving Sasha something she never dared to dream for: a chance at freedom.
    But Sasha is more powerful than she ever imagined, than she ever thought possible. And that power will consume her if she's not careful, if she can't learn to control it.

He agrees, and they devise a plan: to get their parents off their backs when it comes to marriage, they stage a fake marriage.

    Summary

    You'd like to think you don't know why this is happening to you. You'd like to pretend that you don’t recognize the Fears exactly for what they are. You'd like to say that you have any idea about how to go back, go back to your own life and back to living in a world where the Fears weren't something all too real and were only concepts in a bloody podcast.

    You want to go home. You don't want to live in this world where the Magnus Institute exists. You don't want to be here, amidst a world full of monsters that know you fear them.

    And that’s the problem, isn’t it? That they know. They know that you're afraid of them, because you know they're real. That's why they keep coming after you, because you knowing they're real makes them real. They know where you are, where you live, and how terrified you are. And one day, you'll run out of near misses and pay with your life.

    Summary

    Martin's new job at the Institute isn't what he was expecting. Along with Tim and Sasha, he's struggling with a disorganized Archive, no direction from their slightly-devious boss, and the growing feeling that they're in danger. Which is not helped by the cryptic warnings from a far too-knowing voice on an ancient tape recorder calling themselves the Archivist.

    Summary

    At the end of the world, the Archivist stood watch. He stood and he watched for minutes, for hours, for years, for decades, for a time when time did not exist, he watched.

    And then he blinked, and Jonathan Sims was back before everything went wrong. He was back, and he had another chance to protect those he cared for, to protect the world.

    But first, he needs to learn how to act like nothing had changed in the Jon that everyone else knew.

    Besides the constant fear of death, that part is definitely the most difficult.

    (Or, Jon gets sent back in time, chaos ensues.)
