    There are a few things Jon and Martin haven't quite told each other. Things tend to come up at the oddest times.

    Summary

    “Jon…” Martin said, a clear uneasiness in his voice. He walked over to him, putting the cup of tea down on the desk. He moved quickly, Jon feeling nervous as Martin approached closer. Please, Jon thought, just leave me. I don’t want to hurt you.

    “Jon, you look so…” as Martin trailed off, Jon could think of a thousand words to fill the blank. Old, tired, ugly, skinny…

    “Weak,” Martin said, his voice soft. Jon felt his heart start to beat faster, two sides of a coin flipping quickly back and forth. On one side, Jon wanted so desperately for Martin to care, to notice his weakness— it was human nature to want to be noticed, a remainder from who Jon used to be. On the other side, the sooner he noticed, the sooner he’d try to stop what Jon knew he must do.

    Jon struggles with his new-found abilities, and the fact that he doesn't feel human anymore. Martin reminds him that he's human enough.

    Summary

    Post-MAG 159: Elias doesn't stop them. Nobody does.

    Jon mulls this over stood in Martin's meagre flat. It's small, as expected: a single room but for a bathroom near the back. Jon watches Martin move around, hand clasped around a chair. They'd let go sometime after scrambling out of the taxi, when Martin had needed to fish in his pockets for keys. Jon feels oddly bereft without his grip. He's trying not to show it. It's strange to him, all of this. He usually likes his personal space.

    He chalks it up to the Lonely. Some aspect of it still swimming in his blood, tugging at his bones, wanting to lure him back in. He watches Martin for some signal that he feels it too. The flat doesn't help matters—rife with a bachelor's untidiness, otherwise spartan. Martin's bed sits nestled in the back corner, no space wasted with access to both sides. It feels very intimate to be seeing all this. Jon should have pulled Martin out of this sooner, long before now.

    Summary

    “You need to eat more than I do,” Jon insisted. “Please, Martin, just take it.” Brandishing a bag of trail mix. He could see how Martin’s eyes tracked it, subconscious and starved. But of course his mouth was set in a thin, firm line, and Jon knew he was fighting a losing battle.

    Martin grimaced at him, arms locked at his sides. “Yes, I do, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to eat at all.” They didn’t have time to argue—it was getting dark and they needed to get out of the half-burned town, find some sheltered clearing in which to light a fire before it got Dark—and Martin knew that just as well as he did. So it was a battle of wills, and Jon has always, always been worse at that particular contest. They wouldn’t find anything better in this shop, Jon was certain of that much, and he couldn’t remember the last time he saw Martin eat.

    “Fine. We’ll share, then,” he snapped, and he shoved the trail mix into his bag. Out of the corner of his eye, he thought he saw Martin smile.

    Summary

    Martin had never been the type of person to listen to popular music. It made him feel ridiculously pretentious to say it, but it all felt so superficial. All those songs about love and sex and breakups felt so… detached. Emotionless even as the singer was supposedly pouring their heart out.

    He supposed this was part of the reason he liked poetry. Good poetry, where the feelings are so strong you can almost taste them, where you can hear the sounds pinned down by ink on the paper. Martin had been trying his hand at writing his own stuff recently, but it was never much good. It always felt so cliche.

    This is probably just a long way of saying that he liked a good story, and definitely a roundabout way of explaining why he enjoyed listening to the Mechanisms so much.

    (or to put it another way, Jarchivist Sims is Jonny D'Ville and Martin doesn't realise. Gay shenanigans occur. Now with Angst™)

    Summary

    He sees none of the familiar scars dotting Jon’s face. There is no sign of any pock marks, no scrapes or cuts left untreated long enough to scar--
    This Jon might as well be a phantom.

    Summary

    Martin’s concern permeates through the room like some sort of wave, taking hold of Jon’s mind before he’d even properly processed the words Martin had said. “Are you alright?”

    Jon hums and fiddles with a button on the tape recorder, free hand coming up to scratch at the honey-comb scars along his jaw absentmindedly. He doesn’t say a word, just prays to a deity he doesn’t believe in that Martin takes his seemingly distracted hum as answer enough.

    After a moment or two, perhaps about thirty two seconds, the office is silent and Jon believes he’s gotten away with it.

    ———

    Regarding Jonathan Sims' run in with a horrid fever and Martin Blackwood signs on to be his caretaker of his own volition.

    Summary

    “My grandmother taught me about selkies,” said the tattooed man. “Said it’s good luck for them to grace your ship. To treat ‘em right, and they’ll guide you safe.”

    It had seemed like a reasonable thing to believe.

    Summary

    Some feelings are purely magical in nature and make Jon thrum in a predictable fuzzy pattern. He hasn't always known how to identify them, but it comes naturally now. What continues to catch his usually-fickle attention is the odd feeling that creeps under his skin whenever he peers into the flat expanse of a mirror and raises a hand to run through his hair, especially now that it's grown to a length where it can envelop his knuckles in the curls when he buries them. He hates eyes, but he stares into his own in the reflection and feels it swell.

    He still can't train himself to stare into the pupils long enough to see what it is that toils behind them.

    i took the canon dnd classes, looked at them, said "hey thats neat" and then proceeded to not use them. welcome to gay medieval cliches central with a spin of existential dread. alternatively titled "jon is a bratty magic-wielding absolute idiot of a child for tens of chapters and really its a miracle hes lived this long".

    Summary

    The Archive. Whispers of a sanctuary in the ruins of London, ruled not by Fear but by desperate, clawing attempts at hope in the tatters of the world. A beacon for the unwillingly claimed, protected from a single Fear by the presence of them all, a fragile equilibrium in a world of roiling chaos.
