    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

    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

    Being a library assistant for the Magnus Institute College was supposed to give him a quiet sophomore year. Writing poetry, keeping Tim out of trouble, avoiding Gertrude Robinson's asshole cat, things like that. Then Martin notices a standoffish, suspicious stranger working on some secret project. Asking for details out of curiosity and maybe a little bit of a crush leads him down a dangerous conspiracy.

    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

    “Well you’re my partner, aren’t you? We’re working this together.” 
    There was an earnestness in Martin’s voice that made a small part of Jon very happy. He told that piece of himself to shut up and told Martin, “We’re not partners."

    Summary

    This is the turning point, Michael supposes. Either the Archivist falls to panic, and Michael provides him an escape route— or Jon succumbs to the sweet song of vengeful bloodlust, and tears the Stranger’s impostor to shreds.

    Summary

    Sasha stood staring at the bathroom mirror. They didn’t know how long she had been standing there, all she knew is that they didn’t know what was looking back. Logically she knew that it had to be her, that’s how mirrors work but something just looked off. It didn’t look like her.

    Or:
    Sasha struggles with dissociation and depersonalisation after their experiences with the not!them.

    Summary

    (And — god — in the end, it always ends with this, with his fingers tracing out the shape of her jaw, his head dipping down to land in between her collarbones —
    Her mouth opening under his, and he smiles — he’s smiling so often, so —
    It always ends with her finally getting to wind her hands through his hair, hands on his stomach, thumb on his lip, and she says something but he swallows it down, nose on her cheek —
    It —
    It ends with something sinking into her lower back, and he gasps, and when she looks at his face, there are worms burrowing under the surface, making his skin ripple, and he screams —
    Knife in her back, carving back and forth, there’s something peeling the skin off of her arms, and there are bugs pouring out of his eyes, and he left one in her mouth, and he yells her name before collapsing to the floor, exploding into a pile of those pale, grey worms, wriggling over her feet —
    No, no —
    Something takes the skin off her face, takes it for their own, she has to — RUN —)

    Summary

    In a dusty storage room, underneath dim flickering lights, two artefacts on their own uncertain trajectories of self-discovery each find their missing piece in one another.

    Boy howdy, that was a long sentence... Will I fix it? Absolutely not. Proofreading is for cowards. Anyways, this is probably going to be a two-parter but honestly who knows, (not me, not you, not god- that's for sure).

And why does a strange horse wander the lakeshore each morning at dawn?

    AKA a fantasy AU with faeries!

    Summary

    Tim doesn't know what he was expecting to see when he opened up the door to Sasha's apartment, but it definitely wasn't for it to look exactly as it had the last time he had been there, a day or so before the hive lady attacked the Institute.

    And it hurt. More than he could have imagined. It hurt to see this space that held so many memories, memories that had been stolen and corrupted, looking as normal as ever, as if none of it had happened.

    He supposes this is better than if that thing had actually done something to the space. That would've made it significantly harder to do what he was here to do.

    Right. He's here to say goodbye. Stay focused, Tim.
