    Summary

    It starts with waking up in a world you don’t recognise, in a world you have no place in.

    Or maybe it starts with the man who walks into the grocery store, the one with the mean mean smirk and red hot palms.

    Or maybe it starts with the fog following your steps, pooling in your apartment until you can see nothing but the thick white mist.

    Or maybe it starts with the creature in the dark.

    Wherever this story starts, it ends with you standing in front of the Magnus Institute. Or- no- it’s only now that there is no going back.

    Summary

    “If you have no other choice, then you might ask the spiders. If a cure for your mother exists, then they will know what it is.”

    Martin’s heart sinks. He’s heard the stories; spiders spin their webs across the land, and they can sense all that happens on them. Which is all very well, but people who try to bargain with spiders tend to wind up tangled in the very same threads if they aren’t careful.

    Summary

    it’s an elaborate dance they do, the two of them, in the dark.

    needless to say, manuela had not stipulated why she needed the swathes of fire-resistant material, but it was hardly difficult to come by, in the remains of the daedalus project, and it had been one of theirs working in inventory to begin with. she didn’t even have to convince whoever it was that she needed it for their dark sun. it was simply the assumption drawn.

    hard to feel guilty about the ruse now, with the fabric draped over her thighs, bound up somewhat crudely about her waist like a corset, when it allowed agnes to straddle her thighs the way she was now.

    Summary

    There’s a certain feeling you get when you find yourself alone for more than a few days. With nothing but small talk and the friendly “how are you”s staving off isolation, you develop a certain apathy to the world around you. You feel like you yourself are desolate and a wasteland, left for whatever finds you in the open expanses. There’s no word for it really, but you know it when it comes. And it comes quickly.

    Summary

    An album in celebration of The Magnus Archives and the storytellers at Rusty Quill
    14 original songs. One for each fear on Robert Smirke's list.
    Thoughts, tidbits, process and other types of shouting into the void can be found in the video descriptions below the lyrics. Specific Content Warning will be listed alongside their respective songs. If I've missed or mislabeled some, please let me know.

    (I am unclear if this is an appropriate platform to be posting a work of fiction like this? It's not a podfic, and it's not a song fic. It's just...songs about a pod? Does this count? Should I be here?)

    Summary

    Listening to RG Gaming, the Magnus Archives, Stellar Firma, and watching RQ Streams has inspired me not just in writing but in creating fanart. I've essentially been teaching myself photoshop by making these pieces and I thought I'd post them, together, in one convenient location! Also, I need to clear some space and this seemed like the best time to start putting this collection together!

    I'll be adding more as they are created. Enjoy!

    Update: Extinction added to Smirke's 14 and Character Portraits added in new chapter!

    Summary

    Make your choices. Face your fear. Date your colleagues. Hug Martin. Punch Elias. Enjoy Sky Blue. Or other combinations*.

    A love letter to the fandom in the form of a perfectly serious, utterly indulgent fanservice self-insert Archive simulator, using the ChoiceOf game system.

    (*You can't punch Martin.)
    (You also can't quite kiss a full-out monstery monster so far, but I'm working on it.)
