    And faith, of course, may take as many forms as it pleases.

    (In which sin and sanctity bear far closer relation than they may care to admit.)

    Summary

    Lyfrassir didn’t know what they had expected, being the last surviving person of a cosmically destroyed galaxy. There hadn’t been much planning involved other than ‘Run’. So, it’s lucky that the narrative finds it suiting to find them. Just in time.

    Summary

    Tim's been gone for two centuries. That's not long for the Mechanisms, but it's been a particularly rough two centuries. The silver lining? Tim actually did some therapy. And surprise, surprise, Marius was right. It did help. Now if he can just make use of his therapist's suggestions...

    Jonny hasn't had a good time since Tim left. He's back now, but some of what he missed was particularly hard on Jonny. That he came back from his own ordeal doesn't make it any easier. At least he seems to not hate Jonny anymore.

    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.

    Summary

    Basically this is an AU where (Inspector 2nd class) Lifrasir Edda (New Midgard Transprot 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

    Jonathan Sims was not human. Sure they were an avatar of an Eldritch god of fear, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. “Jonathan Sims” was really named Lyfrassir Edda, they were born over a century ago on New Midgard, and they were not human.

    Summary

    Jonny doesn’t like to be touched. That’s one of the first rules of the Aurora, and everyone learns it the hard way. Try casually putting an arm around him and you’re lucky if you get to keep it.

    Summary

    War is never easy, of course, but it presented a rather unique challenge to Bertie. He didn’t know how much of a beating his body could take and wasn’t exactly eager to find out. At least the interminable, mind-numbing darkness made it easier to hide the wounds that would’ve put any other soldier down for the count. He wondered, sometimes, if it would be easier if he were alone. He wouldn’t need to play at normalcy, might be able to escape the guilt that accumulated in his bones with every comrade killed by an attack he may have survived. But these were only idle musings. He would not abandon Tim to face this hellscape alone.

    (Or, Bertie has a healing factor. This has...ramifications.)

    Summary

    Worn down by nightmares and overwhelmed with existential dread, Lyfrassir Edda crosses paths with the Mechanisms once more, much to their regret. Even worse given one is the violin wielding Marius von Raum. And even worse, is that something’s happening to them that’s more than just nightmares.

    aka, Lyf deals with being marked by the Bifrost, as well feelings for a certain space pirate.
