    Summary

    Jon wasn’t anything special. He was an ordinary researcher at Bright Eye Watchmen, Inc.; not terribly skilled at his job, and certainly not very likeable, but ordinary. He could be a bit too dedicated to unearthing the truth, at least if you listened to what Tim had to say about it, but Jon tried not to make a habit of doing that.

    When Jon catches the attention of Elias Bouchard, head of the local research institute, he finds himself wishing he’d listened to Tim just a little more.

    Bark-brown, leathery wings pulled away from the creature’s torso, briefly revealing six limbs clinging tightly to the tree trunk above. The eyes that stared down at the man were backlit by a deep, bloody red, except for the pupils. Those were white. Blank, wide, white orbs that watched him.

    “What are you?” he whispered.

    Jon didn’t know.

    Summary

    After a remarcable strange event, a lot of new statement givers will be arriving at The FORMER Magnus Institute...as well as 'regular' staments and the drama you can always expect from this disfunctional bunch (but I promise not sad ending, this is NOT A TRAGEDY).
    Sorry, I suck at summaries.

    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

    During World War 2 the Archives have been converted into a covert area to gather intelligence on the Axis. When the Americans join the war, they realize its position as access to the rest of Europe, and the Archive staff are dragged closer to the war effort than some might want; becoming part of the history they used to only record. As it turns out, staying true to your morals is rather difficult when lives are on the line. As the war drags on sacrifices must be made; the goal becomes staying alive and what will you do to achieve it?

    Summary

    To die — to sleep. To sleep — perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub! For in that sleep of death what dreams may come?

    The first thing Jon does when he wakes up, sprawled naked across the messy satin sheets, is grab for the thick fur blanket folded up at the foot of the bed. It feels heavenly against his cold skin, soft and warm, and the dark behind his eyes is empty and comforting. He won’t be able to sleep—he doesn’t let himself sleep—but he needs ten full breaths to rest and recover. Jon squeezes his eyes shut and curls beneath the blanket and breathes. He’s alright. He’s alive.

    He’s alive.

    Summary

    Jon's life has never been easy, but he's now in a place where he has friends, his job isn't wretched, and best of all, he's dating Martin Blackwood. Things are finally starting to turn around for him, so of course that's when he learns that he must defeat Martin's seven exes in order to stay with him.

    There's something fishy about this whole thing, Jon is sure of it. But the only way to find out what is to throw down the gauntlet and fight for his love.

    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.

    Based on apocalypsokane’s comic

    Summary

    "I haven't played the guitar in years," Gerry protested weakly. They knew there was no way Mike was going to budge on this, but a man could dream.

    "It's like riding a bike. Once you learn you never really forget," Mike said, taking another sip of his tea. He made a face; it had probably gone cold by now. That or he put too much sugar into it. Mike hated sweets almost as much as he hated the floral tea Gerry liked. Tea snob.

    "I never learned how to ride a bike," Gerry said, though his voice was clearly resigned.

    "Sounds like a you problem," Mike said, leaning onto the table. Gerry kicked him, and the blonde cursed under his breath. Gerry would pay for that later, but in the moment it was very satisfying.

     

    In which Gerry and Mike find love, friendship, and the power of Music! (And incredible acts of violence. Can't forget the violence!)

    Summary

    A soft voice—a rhythmic voice—croaked with the abandonment of not having been used for hours.

    "Mm...?"

    "Ah— Martin. I didn't mean to disturb you."

    "Oh! It's uh—" he fumbled for his glasses and shifted to sit up on the cot. When he finally glanced in Jon's direction, the archivist couldn't help but note that he probably had fumbled around for that self-conscious smile too. "It's okay! I'm… at least I'm wearing trousers now, right?"

    Jon resisted the urge to roll his eyes. Not well. It might have been more obvious if it hadn't been for his specialty in not sleeping. Maybe he could make it a job. And maybe Martin would still be his assistant. His tousled hair and bowed shoulders suggested he hadn't been sleeping too well either. No doubt the worry of becoming a human worm hive had kept him up at night. The difference between them was that right now, Jon looked more raccoon than human.

    And also Martin was actually getting some sort of rest.
