    Summary

    “I know what you are, Martin.”

    Creeping. Crawling. Eyes that scuttled over his skin like hundreds of tiny legs exploring and demanding more. He knew this feeling well. He was being scrutinized, but for what?

    “I’m not sure I follow, sir.”

    Elias’ smile did not dissipate from the cool and collected visage that screamed of seeing him (evaluating him (testing him (knowing him))). “No, I suppose you don’t,” he replied simply, going back to signing the document his employee had handed off. “You’re not in trouble, Martin, believe me. Just...” Those eyes flicked up to keep Martin still. Something inside the assistant reeled back at the sight.

    “Just you keep your area clear of webs. Jonathan isn’t quite fond of spiders, I’ll have you know.”

    A story in which a Watcher grows fond of a Weaver.

    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 works in a lighthouse that echoes too much against a sea he doesn't care for.

    Summary

    There is a thief that’s sneaking his way through the Woods.

    Well, technically he’s not a thief all the time, his trade exists more in the realm of research, but on this night, as he sneaks into the manor belonging to the Fae Mistress of the Woods, searching for information that he has no right to, he’s little more than a thief. As of this story, as of this second, this is his role.

    Summary

    "Sometimes I wonder if I forget things on purpose. Easier not to think about them, I guess. Easier to just let them… slip away. They can’t hurt you if you don’t think about them; they can’t shout at you or call you names."

     

    Martin's always been forgetful.

    Summary

    "His presence filled your vision with green, with bright fields and lush forests. You'd do anything to lay in the grass and feel it against the palms of your hands but the feeling left a pain in your chest and the grey fog was more gentle."

    AKA: Martin sees Jon in different parts, as different people. We go through each Jon from seasons 1-4 and how Martin saw them.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there was a man who wanted to save the world, and instead, nearly destroyed it.

    Before he was forced to commit this great evil, the man fled— but the failed ritual inflicted him with a terrible curse, and he concealed himself inside a dark, lonesome manor. As the years passed and the solitude ate him, he never ventured to the outside world, ever again.

    But that was alright. The man preferred it this way. For there remained not one person, living or dead, who was better for having known Jonathan Sims.

    Summary

    It’d been a while since he’d really, genuinely thought about reality, or what sat beyond it. About what people tended to think sat beyond it, and whether or not that held any truth.

    Summary

    Martin once read that learning to live was simply just making it a habit.

    ----------
    “Sometimes being offered tenderness feels like the very proof that you've been ruined.”
    ― Ocean Vuong, On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

    I wanted to explore the implications of Chinese!Martin, especially with his relationship to his mother. I also wanted to explore the idea of healing, of learning to feel again (ie the impact of the lonely on martin's grief for his mother), and the conflict between wanting to stand on your own as well as relying on others. So I vomited this out in 3 days while I was supposed to study for my prelims, oops!

    Title taken from This Be The Verse by Philip Larkin.

    Summary

    So if Martin meets a strange girl who helps him with his groceries and calls him her little brother, and some fog makes some bullies forget they were teasing him, and a mannequin helps him find the perfect clothes, and if those who hurt him are hunted down by strange wolves, and if there is always an eye to watch him and an ear to listen to him, and a strange yellow door helps him get to wherever he needs to be right on time, well, who is he to complain.

    Summary

    TMA Hurt/Comfort Week, day 5.

    Prompt: Childhood, calm.

    ----

    Martin remembers his Grandad. It was the only male role model he had, despite losing him quickly as child. But he always kept him in his heart, especially when that kind, wise grandfather loved him as he were.

    Young Martin was prone to accidents. Grandad used to be there to patch him up, give him hot chocolate and comfort him with soothing words and warm hugs.

    In which the Web puts on a show

    "SIR JONATHAN SIMS, aside:
    Threads… For the briefest moment,
    I swear, I… My eyes must have…
    (stumbling over his words)
    Something in the light, maybe…"

    Summary

    Written for TMA Hurt/Comfort week. Day two prompt- distracting from injuries/confession/fear.

    Ash coated Martin’s mouth, gritting his teeth and tongue. If he tried to speak the words would be garbled, spit thickened with the dust. If he tried to speak his throat would surely burn with the fire of what now lay behind them, smoking gently. If he tried to speak his eyes would sting and his lips would crack, making each carelessly shaped letter a chore.
    If he tried to speak it would cost him. It’s a good thing, then, that he hasn't spoken for several hours.

    Summary

    Like a moldy wall, the ugly and broken always resurfaces after a while. That’s what happens when the mold has sunk into the bones of a wall, of a person. When you are, at your core, a battered and neglected thing. Martin knows this, and he has accepted it, mostly.
