    Summary

    As a fisherman working under Captain Lukas, Martin has learned to keep his head down and fade into the mist. He does his work, walks further down the path Peter has laid before him, and if members of the crew occasionally disappear, Martin has learned not to ask about them. Has learned to stop caring at all.

    At least until the crew pull up something strange and wonderful and impossible, tangled in one of the fishing nets. Something that Peter means ill.

    No, Martin doesn't... care. But maybe he can save it. Maybe they can save each other.

    Summary

    "It's gonna be beautiful," Rita had said, that first evening when they were both waist high in weeds and looking at the most decrepit house Juno had ever laid eyes on. Months later he's still not really sure about that.

    (AKA The Stardew Valley AU you didn't ask for, but you got anyways)

    Summary

    To be a monster is to be a hybrid signal, a lighthouse: both shelter and warning at once.

    Summary

    Martin has always liked the idea of love at first sight.

    It’s such a romantic idea, the whole thing of it. Seeing someone and instantly feeling that strange, twisting feeling deep inside that every single media likes to obsess over. Of knowing you are in love within the day, petals falling from your mouth and warmth filling your chest as love burrows deep, vines twisting through your lungs.

    He always liked the idea of it.

    And then Jonathan Sims starts working at the Magnus Institute.

    Summary

    "I think you and Ben would have got along really well." Oops. He didn't mean to say that out loud. He’s told Rita about his brother before, but he doesn't really talk about him much. Rita smiles, and talks quietly, like she’s trying not to scare Juno off.

    "Yeah? Is there any particular reason, boss?"

    -

    Juno is having a bad day, so rita watches a movie with him.
