    Summary

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

    Despite what people may have expected, the Mechanisms did observe some common societal traditions - and not only those that they individually couldn’t quite shake.
    One of these things was marriage.
    To be fair, the Mechanisms did not observe marriage in a particularly common manner. Their observance of it could also be traced to one (or two) members of the crew in particular.
    Tim liked being married, you see. He (or ze or she or occasionally ae) enjoyed being able to point at someone and say that that was his spouse. He took great pleasure in catching sight of a ring someone picked out particularly for him on his left hand. He felt a thrill of excitement every time he signed his name as something more than Timothy.

    Summary

    Aurora's code and her Cyberian metal had been changed and warped into something that Nastya couldn't recognize anymore. The only thing that was the same were the veins and blood and flesh. She needed something to remember her love while she was Out.

    Summary

    Before she can make it even halfway to the library, the pain behind her eyes starts flashing, dark and blurry, across her vision. “Fuck,” she hisses, leaning against the wall and rubbing her eyes. “Aurora?”

    All Nastya knows is that she has to get out.

    Summary

    She continued with her tinkering, eventually giving up and tossing the tools and ship parts she’d been messing with into a bucket, covering the bucket with its lid, and swinging over to Jonny.
    “I don’t like that anymore.” She said, jerking her head towards the wall panel.
    “That isn’t one of those things that’ll explode if you leave it alone, right?” Jonny asked, grabbing Nastya’s arm and pulling her closer to him. She crossed her arms and scowled, but he could see the hint of a smile at the corners of her mouth.
    “Probably not.” Nastya said. The two were floating side by side now, Jonny’s arm around Nastya’s shoulders and one of her feet looped in the rope to keep them in place.
    “That’s not very reassuring, princess.”
    “I am the engineer here, cowboy.” Nastya said, gently punching Jonny’s shoulder and sending him floating away from her. “So stop it, Mr. can’t refuel the shuttle on your own.”

    Summary

    Written for Mechtober 2020 days 10-12 vampires/death

    “So you’re a vampire?” Nastya punctuated her statement with a delicate sip of tea.
    “Yeah.” Carmilla offered Nastya an awkward smile. Their relationship was fraught to say the least, but they found themselves enjoying the occasional moment of peace and camaraderie, often when Jonny was planetside wreaking havoc.
    “So you don’t have blood.” Nastya took another sip of tea, noting how good it was. She would have to ask Carmilla what type it was later.
    “Well, not human blood. It’s kind of a prerequisite of being a vampire.”
    “Would that make me a vampire then, too? I don’t have human blood. Plus, I died once and I got better.”

    or: Nastya and Carmilla spend some quality time together
