    Summary

    Basically this is an AU where (Inspector 2nd class) Lifrasir Edda (New Midgard Transport Police) escapes their burning world and eventually ends up on Earth (Terra) and ends up joining the Magnus Institute as Jonathan Sims.

    Ultimately with some relatively involved pre-story concerning how Lifrasir even gets to earth in the first place. I intend to follow along relatively consistently with The Magnus Archive podcast, so consider this a bit of an experiment in letting my hyperfixations run the show for a bit.

    Content warnings will be in the notes before each chapter, feel free to comment with additional content warnings if you feel it needs them.

    Summary

    Ulysses is a high school dropout who kind of just hangs around. Ariadne has her own drama to deal with, Herakles has issues at home, Orpheus has been dumped by his girlfriend, and Oedipus, well... He just wants to get out. The five of them end up vaguely working together on a project, while their lives unfold around them.
    Oh, and all their teachers are immortal, because of course they are.

    Summary

    Immortals don’t need to sleep, supposedly. That’s what Carmilla said the first time Ashes asked, but now they’re not so sure.

    It’s been nearly three weeks since they woke up on the Aurora, breathing freely for once in their life. Two weeks since Malone burned. And Ashes hasn’t had a wink of sleep the entire time, choosing instead to spend their nights pacing the hallways of this strangely amicable starship and trying to learn as much as possible about their new crew without anyone else catching on.

    Summary

    Tim dared Jonny that he wouldn’t be able to last more than five years on earth without committing crimes. Sounds easy enough. However, Jonny didn’t exactly expect to find a certain inspector on said planet.

    Summary

    Despite what people may have expected, the Mechanisms did observe some common societal traditions - and not only those that they individually couldn’t quite shake.
    One of these things was marriage.
    To be fair, the Mechanisms did not observe marriage in a particularly common manner. Their observance of it could also be traced to one (or two) members of the crew in particular.
    Tim liked being married, you see. He (or ze or she or occasionally ae) enjoyed being able to point at someone and say that that was his spouse. He took great pleasure in catching sight of a ring someone picked out particularly for him on his left hand. He felt a thrill of excitement every time he signed his name as something more than Timothy.

    Summary

    (Inspired by Ketakoshka's Monster Jon series)
    Jon loves Knowing things, but he wants to Understand. Understand his friends, the world and most of all himself. Its a bit hard, being just as much a child of the Beholding as of his human parents.

     

    (Aka Jon is a monster boi who literally just wants to help his friends happy and also mess with Elias, oh and also maybe become romantically involved with his cute archival assistant who he Knows isn't as human as he thinks.)

    Summary

    The Mechanisms arrive on the dead husk of a city-planet, and take a moment to reminisce. A podfic reading of the official story by the same name, might continue with more of the stories if there's interest.

    Summary

    Before she can make it even halfway to the library, the pain behind her eyes starts flashing, dark and blurry, across her vision. “Fuck,” she hisses, leaning against the wall and rubbing her eyes. “Aurora?”

    Summary

    When Ulysses died, it was the end for them. But it wasn't the end of the story.

    Ariadne, Heracles, Oedipus and Orpheus survived the Ulysses job, somewhat the worse for wear but all in one piece (just about). So when Ashes-- ah, Hades -- offered them a role as their own personal heist-team-for-hire (with a bribe of immortality if they were good enough), they really had no choice but to accept.

    And what better way to join together a team than with a group chat?

    There is no way this could go wrong.

    Summary

    Byron von Raum is a member of the rebellion, fighting against both sides of the war that has torn his world apart. Then he finds a bunch of mechas, fixes one, joins a group of pirates, loses an arm, gets a new one, and dies. Definitely not in that order though. And "dies" isn't in there nearly enough times. But it's all fine, right?

    This is my Marius backstory fic! Which is essentially me going "hey, Marius was like, a mecha pilot or something, what if he had a cool mecha arm? What's that term you see a lot... techno organic??" and then writing over 7k words. And creating an AI for him to befriend because he deserves it. And side characters, so that they can die. And unnamed villains so that they can also die.

    Summary

    Lyf lets the Black Box slip from their grasp. It clatters to the floor, with Lyf following soon after, sinking to their knees in despair.

    The Ratatosk Express, the prisoners, the Black Box, the Bifrost…

    All of it happened so fast and there wasn't a thing they could do to stop it. 

    -----

    Or: Marius convinces the mechs to go back for Lyf. They all agree it's just until they can get the story of the Bifrost out of them, but when someone is stuck on a spaceship fleeing a rainbowy hell with you long enough. You start to get attatched.
