    Summary

    He always loved those stories, you know the ones, someone gets invited by a distant relative to an ancient castle and them actually choosing to go.

    That is, until he himself received a letter with those exact details.

    Summary

    Fear of a thing is not that thing itself. The most perfect cages are those whose bars you cannot see. The most cunning of liars are those who tell you who you are, and make you believe them.

    The Unknowing unwittingly provides a new perspective. Jonathan Sims discovers a new and most peculiar path.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood can't exactly say that his life is normal. It started out normal enough, but he's pretty sure that becoming a pseudo-immortal space pirate after being ripped open by a vampire doctor is a bit "out there". But he hasn't been home in centuries, and after the events of the Bifrost Incident, he really just wants to return to the mundane for a bit. Maybe he can tie up some loose ends while he's at it.

    The new archiving job and extra-spooky supernatural insanity wasn't exactly what he'd had in mind.

    ***

    An AU that explores Martin as a Mechanism during the TMA timeline.

    Summary

    Instead of retiring to open a book shop, Gerry ends up working at a flower shop run by American lesbians in London. This leads to a brush with the Distortion, who just wants to buy some lilies, the Magnus Institute finding out he’s still alive, and... well, a normal life was never really in the cards for the likes of Gerard Keay, was it?

    Oh, and those lesbians who run the flower shop? There’s more to them than meets the eye.

    (No knowledge of Maniac Mansion required; I take lots of liberties to slot it into TMA’s universe.)

    Summary

    The archives aren't the most popular or exciting place to work in the Jedi order but Jonathan Sims was happy with that. He didn't need excitement in his life, just answers.

    Summary

    Three days after Jon and Martin had gotten together, Martin finds the table of bets the others have placed on that moment. Jon and Martin make the decision not to tell the others, with the condition that they would if someone outright asked if they were dating.
    Which leaves Jon and Martin pretending they are just co-workers, only struggling in a few… unfortunate situations.

    Summary

    But reality was a lot harsher than dreams. He admitted that to himself now, as he gently moved a piece of hair from Jon’s unblinking eye. Daisy Tonner was dead. Sasha James was dead. Daniel Stoker was still dead, or disappeared, or whatever woe begotten fate had befallen him at the hands of that wretched circus.

    And here was Tim. Alive. And forced to deal with the fallout.

    Summary

    Martin joining The Lonely probably shouldn’t have been a surprise to him or anyone else for that matter. For as long as he could remember he had felt alone in one way or another.
    Or: a large reflection of Martin’s life leading up to him joining The Lonely, and how it had always had some hold on him.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims is rather tired of being kidnapped but Martin Blackwood, a fully-realized Avatar of The Lonely, is a better host that most. True, he's an empty, washed-out version of a human, but piece by piece Jon manages to unearth someone worth knowing behind the isolation and the distance.

    Of course, there's the questions of why Martin kidnapped him in the first place, what The Lonely wants with The Archivist (or with The Archivist out of the way), why Elias Bouchard and Peter Lukas still seem to be working together despite that, and what The Web has to do with. Well. Everything.

    Other than that, though, Jon is as interested in Martin himself as he is in everything surrounding him. Which include the end of the world. A world that Jon's not completely convinced shouldn't end.

    Summary

    After the events of the Unknowing, Jon is furious to find Peter Lukas running the Institute, and even more so to find Lukas has sent one of his own to work down in the archives. But upon meeting Martin Blackwood, Jon finds himself drawn to him, against his better judgement. Blackwood's allegiances lie with Lukas, after all. Or so he thinks.

    But when Blackwood offers a deal--mutually beneficial and far too good to be true, Jon accepts.

    Summary

    The blood rushes through his ears and drowns out all other noise as he goes still. Intentionally, he reaches deep within himself, down to the very essence of what makes him the person he is, and twists it, knows it. It hurts; of course it does. But in the end, he opens his eyes again and he knows that he has to go on.

    In this moment, the Archivist forces himself to become Jonathan Sims once more.

    Summary

    "Okay, your turn."

    "Hmm… truth."

    "You can't always pick truth, Gerry," complained Jon

    "Well, what dare could you possibly give me? No one but you can see me, there aren't exactly a vast options of dares for me huh?"

    Jon glared at him. "…point taken," said.

     

     

    or - when jon burned gerry's page, instead of fading out of existence, he stayed here as a ghost, and only jon can see him.

    Everything's kinda shit, but at least he still has one friend.

    Summary

    ‘Moorch-ei seven-four,’ Tim reads from the computer, ‘foggy surface, oxygen atmosphere, population thirty-one thousand. Damn, that’s small. Oh! It says their capital is known for the local’s skill in metalwork and mechanics! Guess we head there, then.’

    This makes Sasha nod encouragingly, but does nothing to stop Jon’s belief that this stop will be is a colossal waste of time.

     
    Jon is on a mission to complete his final trial and become a proper Jedi Knight and determined not to let anything - tech failure, impromptu stopovers, emotions - get in the way.

    Martin is a mechanic in the Outer Rim who has no idea the things he can do in secret have a name and can be shared.

    About loneliness, connection, emotions, repression, spirituality, balance and communication.... in space !!!

    Summary

    “I really, really am going to miss this – even talking to you like this. Just, just holding onto that bit of hope that you’re not-“, Martin cuts himself off then, because Jon is as much not dead as he is awake and moving about, “it’s nice to just pretend for a bit, I guess”

    Jon’s skin is cool and dry where Martin’s fingers brush against it and Martin squeezes his eyes shut as he lowers his hand.

    “It’s probably for the best if I don’t come here again anyway. Time I stop lying to myself and secretly wait for you to just wake up because you hear my voice. God knows, I’m the last person you’d wake up for anyway”

    He doesn’t quite manage to keep the bitterness out of his voice, but then again, Jon probably can’t really hear him anyway so why bother? – And now he’s imagining, he can hear Jon’s breath. He really has to get out of here and just let go. For once in his life.

    ---

    Allegedly, there are no positive powers at work in the universe.

    Allegedly, the archivist wakes up from his coma after six months and proceeds to trudge through season 4 miserable and alone.

    Allegedly, there won't be a happy ending.

     

    Allegedly.
