    Summary

    “You can stay.” The voice interrupts his internal panic, and he looks over to find Jon studiously avoiding his gaze, staring hard at a neighboring bush. Martin wonders what caused his sudden change of heart. “But you have to sit on the other side. And don’t talk to me.”

    Jonathan Sims and Martin Blackwood meet as children. Some things change, others do not.

    Summary

    Jon swallows, taking a moment to map out and memorize Martin’s face all over again. He looks… exactly the same, in all the ways that matter. The evidence of what he’s been through is there (he looks so tired, the dark circles under his eyes practically have their own dark circles), but he is still, without a doubt, Martin.

    “What’s that look for?” Martin asks him.

    “I missed you,” Jon answers easily.

    “Oh.” With his free hand, he reaches out, cups Jon’s cheek. “I missed you too.”

    Summary

    “Have you got anywhere to stay?” Jon asks him, briskly. “Friends, acquaintances, maybe, who you could stay with…?”

    Martin flushes, deeply. “I, I mean— n-no, not really,” he stammers, and then goes even redder. “Or, just, y’know not that I’d want to, to. Put in the middle of this. Put in danger of, of worms.”

    “Ah,” Jon says, “No, of course, that makes sense.” Why drag anyone else into this mess? Seven people died during Prentiss’s initial hospitalization; the collateral damage of roping someone from outside the Institute into her orbit doesn’t bare thinking about. “In that case…” Jon feels like there’s some alternative solution, one he’s just not thinking of at the moment, but it evades him, and Martin needs somewhere safe to stay. “My couch is quite comfortable. You’re welcome to come and stay with me until you figure something else out.”

     

    Martin is held hostage by Jane Prentiss for two weeks, and can't go back to his flat. Jon offers him a place to stay until Prentiss and her worms can be dealt with, and they can be sure he's safe.

    Summary

    “I know what the Archivist is.” Everyone knew the Archivist. Many assumed he was a relative of the Grim Reaper, a cousin of the Boogeyman. The innocent assumed he was a concept or a symbol; a funny little name to curse when the tingling on your neck became unbearable, when you turned to see no one watching, when you knew someone’s eyes were on you anyway.

    The unfortunates knew he had a body, a home, at least two eyes. The unfortunates knew the feeling of being watched was less a feeling and more a knowledge; the really unfortunate knew the Archivist’s name was currently Jon.

    There was currently only one really unfortunate.

    ---

    Martin wanted nothing more than a brief holiday—travel a bit, meet some people, home before anyone could think to miss him. Being unwillingly offered up as the Archivist's first and only assistant was most definitely not part of the plan, but what else can he do besides make the most of it?

    He'll at least try to survive.
