    Summary

    The eye-pocalypse envelops the UK, locking out the rest of the world. Taryn Powell watches helplessly from Olympia, Washington, as their partner, Lydia, is trapped inside.

    That is, until they get a call from a cryptic stranger, who shows them a way to breach the blinking cloud. As Taryn navigates the fear domains, they encounter Jonathan Sims and Martin Blackwood.

    Taryn and Jon have a lot in common. This may or may not be a good thing.

    Summary

    Michael Crew had expected a lot of things from life as an avatar. What he hadn't expected was getting locked in the pet domain of some malformed buried devotee and inadvertanly bumping back into his long time secret friend and rival Gerard Keay. Honestly, there were worse ways to spend one's last days on earth, no doubt, but there were also better ones.

    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

    As the Head Archivist at the Magnus Institute, Sasha has been having a rough time, dealing with the "Flesh Hive" or whatever. At least the thing that calls itself "Michael" was willing to give them some information... but it's not the only one with an interest in what happens at the Institute.

    Featuring Avatar Jon, Archivist Sasha, Bastard Elias, and the statement of Joe Spooky, regarding sinister happenings in downtown.

    Summary

    The Archives crew wake up in 2014 to discover that they all recall the events yet to happen in their lives. With a second chance presented to them, and a somewhat familiar face extending a friendly offer to assist in keeping everyone alive, Jon, Martin, Tim, Sasha, Georgie, Melanie, Basira, and Daisy all join forces to keep themselves out of trouble long enough to save the world. Again.
    Or: another time travel fix-it with me projecting on the child I just assigned to JMart because they deserve a nice, happy family. Complete with a tragic backstory for them so I can give a reason for why they did this in the first place.
    Title comes from a Will Wood song I listen to on repeat with big TMA vibes.

    Summary

    You'd like to think you don't know why this is happening to you. You'd like to pretend that you don’t recognize the Fears exactly for what they are. You'd like to say that you have any idea about how to go back, go back to your own life and back to living in a world where the Fears weren't something all too real and were only concepts in a bloody podcast.

    You want to go home. You don't want to live in this world where the Magnus Institute exists. You don't want to be here, amidst a world full of monsters that know you fear them.

    And that’s the problem, isn’t it? That they know. They know that you're afraid of them, because you know they're real. That's why they keep coming after you, because you knowing they're real makes them real. They know where you are, where you live, and how terrified you are. And one day, you'll run out of near misses and pay with your life.

    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.
