    Summary

    Takes the premise that Jon and Tim had a kind of friends with benefits relationship going on in their research days and runs with it all the way from Tim's start at the institute to after the Unknowing.

     

    "Kiss on New Year’s?” He asks, and Jon thinks he has to be joking. Jon wrinkles his face into an expression that tells him so.

    Tim winks, winks at him. “What? It’s good luck. Couldn’t you use some good luck?”

    The minute countdown has started. Jon’s thinking of reasons to say no, but his brain isn’t coming up with anything good. Possibly it’s because he doesn’t want to say no. Because he likes this closeness, the arm slung heavy over his shoulders, the body pressed against his. He likes kissing, too, and he hasn’t gotten to do it in a while. Tim has already turned his attention back to a screen that is now counting down the seconds from ten.

    “Fine, alright.” Jon says.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood has finished his apprenticeship under Annabelle Cane and is, hopefully, ready to be a witch in his own right. He's moved to idyllic Magnuston surrounded on all sides with forests and possible dangers and it is now his job to protect this town from everything else out there. Armed with herbal teas and a talent for knitting Martin feels at least somewhat prepared.

    What he wasn't prepared for was Jonathan Sims, the town's prickly librarian who seems to know a lot more about the fairies then he'd expect and who Martin is hopelessly infatuated with. Things are getting complicated fast but Martin should be able to manage it all, especially with the help of his coven.

    Just remember, don't leave the path in forest.

    She takes a breath.

    Summary

    Starting towards the end of season one, what would happen if a new avatar took precedence over the Prentiss-related threat? A butterfly-effect of small changes causes immense differences down the line...

    This is a sort of fix-it/happy ending AU where the s1 squad survives and the Extinction might actually help avert the apocalypse.

    Summary

    Martin Blackwood, in need of employment and out of options, takes a clerical position in Scotland at Castle Magnus, working for the enigmatic Lord Elias Bouchard. He expects it to be glorified paper-shuffling, but what he finds instead is much more sinister. What secrets lurk in the castle library? Who plays the wild music that haunts his dreams? And why does a strange horse wander the lakeshore each morning at dawn?

    AKA a fantasy AU with faeries!

    Summary

    There has only ever been one Archivist.

    (Elias smiled, something curled and twisting, and laughed politely. “Unfortunately, Gertrude didn’t leave anything else behind. Well, if there isn’t anything I can help with, I will leave you to it.”

    The hissing in Jon’s head screamed to go for the eyes. He nodded at Elias and prayed it go away.)

    Summary

    On the other side of the hill, at the end of a vast field is a house, sister to Malfoy Manor, a house that stands as much in the sunlight as the other stands in shade, a house that opens up her arms to a group of lost souls in the aftermath of battle. In the summer of '98 this group of not - quite- children find a series of hidden underground passageways linking the two houses and Harry begins to learn that a lot of things that appear opposites are connected so much more completely than he ever realised. Strange things are happening to Hermione in the library at Mallowsweet as she works to juggle two romances, there are entities far bigger than Voldemort at work and nothing is simple any more.

    ....then again it never was.

    Drarry with a side order of Kromione. Should still work as a story for anyone who hasn't heard The Magnus Archives but some A+ crossover times if you have :-)

    Summary

    He took his glasses off and wiped them off with a piece of fabric pulled from his pocket, “Well, it would appear that there was an incident. A number of their research and archival assistants went missing.”
    That garnered an immediate reaction from all of us, “What the hell causes ‘a number of research and archival assistants’ to go missing?”

    This is a sort of AU/Alternate timeline with several original characters.

    Summary

    It was completely fine that Jon was following up on this very normal, non-supernatural statement at midnight on a Friday. He was going to find nothing at all, and then he was going to go home and sleep for fourteen straight hours and feel absolutely no qualms about moving case #0150409 directly into the filing cabinet marked "discredited".

    Or; Jon and Martin end up investigating Carlos Vittery's basement and finding the entity formerly known as Jane Prentiss together.

    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

    Martin Blackwood couldn't complain too much about his job as an archival assistant for a magic-researching institute. His boss might be a bit cranky, his coworkers and himself have little experience with what being an archival assistant actually entails, and there's a dragon lurking in the archives, but at least the pay is-! oh, well.

    Summary

    Martin finds the tape in the wall. Specifically, in a small hole in the drywall, tucked behind boxes and stuffed with so much crumpled paper and tissue that it's almost impossible to see anything else in there. It's a cassette tape, the sort Jon uses to record statements, labeled on the front with a brown strip of tape. It's addressed to the Head Archivist in a spidery handwriting.

    --

    Or: Gertrude Robinson made a tape as a warning to the next Head Archivist. What if he had gotten it?

    Summary

    1. Martin is living his best life in an (as of now un-?)requited rom-com. Also, he's a huge Mechs fan but has no idea Jon is Jonny. Martin's POV chapters are fluff with a flavour of crack taken seriously and his reality is a bit AU.

    2. Canon-verse Jon tries to gouge out his eyes after Eric Delano's statement, and instead of it working, Beholding says "fuck you" and sends him back in time into Martin's slightly different reality, with a few more eyes as a treat. (Avatars get a tad more monster-y, and certain participants who are dead in canon might still be alive)
    Jon's POV chapters are Angst, H/C with some body horror. It'll take time to heal after what he's been/is going through, but he will get better and his chapters will get a lot more lighthearted ... eventually <333

    (First chapter is Martin from before s1 to mid-season 1; second chapter is Jon time-and-dimension-travelling. This story will be LONG, to allow for proper character growth and healing. (This is a threat.)
    Additional/specific warnings in chapter notes.

    ♡ I try my best to update somewhat weekly but I can't promise that it'll always work out ♡
