    Summary

    The sunlight feels different on a face fresh out of prison, and it feels even better to Jonathan Sims now that he’s truly home. Not Bournemouth, where he grew up, but London. The City, to be exact, the beating heart of England’s financial power. A cornucopia of greed, just waiting to be harvested.
    “Never give a sucker an even break!” proclaims the advertisement on a nearby billboard, the cartoon lipstick print next to it shining cherry bright.
    Jon sees it, and smiles in agreement. He’s back, and he’s ready to get to work.

    Long con artist Jonathan Sims is back from two years in prison on an assault charge, and is looking to put the old crew back together for a last hurrah. With roper Tim Stoker, fixer Sasha James, banker Martin Blackwood, and Jon working the inside, London's most formidable gang of grifters are back in action.
    However, they'll have to watch their backs as they scam London's cruel rich. A team of police, headed up by DI Alice Tonner and DS Basira Hussain, are determined to catch the legendary Archivist and his team in the act, whatever it takes.

    Summary

    *
    *
    Sasha James does not know where she is.

    It looks like the break room, but... off, somehow. Uncanny.

    A few familiar faces, a disembodied voice and… a television join her along the way, and they piece together the situation.

    Summary

    After the deaths of his parents, Jon's grandmother takes him to the kingdom of Adraesia to meet the young Princess Georgie. Soon enough the two are best of friends, through childhood and into adulthood.
    Years after they last saw each other, Georgie sends a letter urging him to come visit her. He agrees, and they devise a plan: to get their parents off their backs when it comes to marriage, they stage a fake marriage. Georgie is in love with a daughter of a noble, and Jon figures he'll never marry anyway.
    Then he meets Martin, the new captain of the guard of Adraesia, and Jon starts to rethink his stance.

    Summary

    An assortment of smutty TMA sketches!

    Newest Chapter is: Jon x Rope Bondage

    --

    Finally got tired of hoarding all my nsfw tma art. Most of this stuff will be silly/small/quick sketches done mostly for laughs in discord servers, or pinups, or vaguely horny stuff drawn for AUs. 'Chapters' will get individual notes/warnings whenever needed!

    Summary

    The Pride and Prejudice AU that I saw mentioned once and would not leave me alone until I had it planned and ready to go. PoV character shifts but it's one per chapter.

    Martin dropped back, feeling as though he'd been struck. “That's not fair.”

    “Is it truly not?” Master Sims’ eyes narrowed, looking at him once again with that feeling of being stripped bare and judged with uncaring intensity. “The only reason I can conceive of that you would expect me to treat my own husband that way is due to the way she treats you.”

    Husband it echoed in his head. He could never have imagined a man using that word for him in a way that caused such a heavy weight of sickness in his stomach. “I expect that sort of treatment from a man who would propose to me by calling his feelings abhorrent and myself beneath him. You may rest reassured, Master Sims, that you have discharged your duty in putting your unwilling feelings into such a theatrical declaration and that you may take with you my sincerest apologies that I gave you any indication that I would be at all happy for the affections of a man whose feelings for me were such a singularly unpleasant sensation for him.”

    Summary

    It's the 66th Hunger Games, and Jonathan Sims has been chosen. He's not built for this; scrawny, barely skilled in sewing, reads in his spare time - not a killer.
    His mentor seems to agree, and Jon doesn't have high hopes.

    But the Capitol holds more than death; something entrenched in its core, a secretive president, familiar faces and new bonds, and a flicker of hope.

    Summary

    A narrow escape from a mysterious event finds Jon Sims in the country of Avonrey, rooming with his childhood friend Georgie Barker. After landing a job working as the head librarian at the Avonrey palace library, Jon finds himself neck deep in the exact nonsense he'd left his home of Warcona because of: the Dread Gods. Attacks from mysterious worm ladies, kidnapper clowns, and weird memory-wiping goths are just the start of it, as Jon digs deeper into the lore and history of the country he's found himself in, and the god he unwittingly was chosen by. What really lies deeper within the dusty archives? What does Elias Bouchard want with him? What even is the Truthseer? All of these questions are ones that Jon must ask if he wants to learn just why he's been chosen, and how to save the world he knows.

    Summary

    After having killed Jonah Magnus and ended the Change, Jon and Martin should finally be able to rest. Rest, however, proves impossible when Jon falls ill. What's more, he begins having vivid dreams of their dead friends - Tim, trapped in the destroyed Archives, and Sasha, trapped outside of them. As Jon's condition quickly worsens and the line between dream and reality begins to blur, love is all he and Martin have to hold on to, because hope is a dangerous thing.

    Summary

    Tim and Sasha take the job because it's a simple one: escort shy, nervous, wide-eyed newbie cleric Martin Blackwood to the holiest city in the world. They also take it because the chance to skip town and dodge the trouble they've gotten into is too good to pass up.

    But there's more to a journey across continents than just keeping watch for bandits, especially after they pick up a cagey warlock tied to an all-seeing fear god. Mysterious encounters pile up. Danger mounts.

    Sometimes, in spite of your best efforts, trouble finds you.

    Summary

    At the end of the world, the Archivist stood watch. He stood and he watched for minutes, for hours, for years, for decades, for a time when time did not exist, he watched.

    And then he blinked, and Jonathan Sims was back before everything went wrong. He was back, and he had another chance to protect those he cared for, to protect the world.

    But first, he needs to learn how to act like nothing had changed in the Jon that everyone else knew.

    Besides the constant fear of death, that part is definitely the most difficult.

    (Or, Jon gets sent back in time, chaos ensues.)

    Summary

    “Uh, yes actually. My name is Jonathan Sims. These are my colleagues Timothy Stoker and Sasha James...And you are?” His voice was sharp and left no room for argument.

    Her smile widened impossibly. “My name is Helen! It is so lovely to meet you! Now, if you would please follow me, I’ll show you to what will hopefully be your new home! I know you’ll just love it!” There was a certain confidence in her voice, as if it was already decided that Jon would move in. Without waiting for a response, she began to walk down the street.

    Despite Jon not needing a new place, as he had made plans to renew his lease tomorrow, and the confused stares of his coworkers, Jon followed her.

    Summary

    “We have a train to catch, Elias. Could the rest of this wait till Monday?”

    “Of course.” He stepped out of the way, but continued to speak even as Jon led Martin past him. “Certainly a change to see you rushing out of here on time.”

    Jon reached the door and pushed it open. Martin stepped through as Jon glanced back at Elias. “You’ve shown me quite clearly this week that there are things much more important than this place.”

    *Note: Explicit section (Chapter 9) is written so that it can be avoided if you'd like.

    Summary

    Martin clings to Jon as they fall, clings to his bleeding lover as the roaring of the void and the screeching of the tapes drowns out any words either of them have. He clings to Jon and prays to whatever gods may exist that everything will end up alright.
    Then he collapses onto cold linoleum, stumbling into a harsh metal filing cabinet. The roaring and screeching is gone, and the harsh silence makes his ears ring... or maybe that's the head wound.

    When he finally opens his eyes, he isn't sure what he expected to see, but its not the middle of the archives with Sasha and his younger self staring back at him.

    Summary

    “So,” the creature smiled, a twisted thing of fangs and woven deceit, “before we go any further. Hello Archivist.”
    An arm reached up to tilt his hat chivalrously at her. He fixed his octet of arachnid eyes to hers, and Sasha felt her breath catch in her throat.
    “I’m Mr. Spider.”

    Jonathan Sims had always hated spiders. The phantom sensations of silk cloying down his throat, of skittering legs and venomous bites.
    He was always meant to be a part of Mother’s plan, except this time the book did not land where it may have. This time, the door did not close shut.
    Mr. Spider wants more.
    This time, the door creaked back open.

    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

    Melanie wants to live so fucking much that she fought for it, like she’s been fighting for it all her life. Sometimes that fight looks like bad box dye job snuck under her parents noses, sometimes it looks like scraping together a crew to go out and hunt ghosts on YouTube. Sometimes it’s grizzlier — sometimes it looks like this: doing whatever it takes to be back in control of her life. Even if it hurts.

    Or: Melanie King, on autonomy and choice.

    Summary

    "In an effort to distract himself for the odd feeling of the situation, he occupied himself by looking over the papers spread out in front of him once again. He had looked them over a number of times already since Elias had first handed them to him, trying to wrap his head around the it all properly. To say that Jon had been a bit taken aback when he’d been informed that Elias had hired an assistant for him would have been an understatement."
    -------
    Jon is a writer, stuck working for Elias. Martin is his assistant, also stuck working for Elias. Feelings ensue. A Victorian era AU JMart romance.

    Summary

    “Thank you.” The sarcasm has chipped away, now merely dust coating the tunnel floor. Jon looks up at Martin once again, and sees the weight of the world measured in his eyes, threatening to spill out.

    “And... I won’t hurt you, Jon. You’re not a martyr. At least you don’t deserve to be.”
