    Summary

    "Recording number four of Timothy Stoker’s investigation into Jonathan Sims, Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute. Fact #4: I’m a zombie, I guess.” Tim turns to Sasha, a twisted smile creeping across his face. “Guess I have to eat your brain now, Sash.”

    She swats at him. “You wouldn’t. You love me too much.”

    “Fact #5: I love Sasha James too much to eat her brain.” Genuine joy filters through him, pushing some of the darkness away, and the smile he gives Sasha is wide and bright. “I guess that leads then into the big question: if I’m supposed to be dead, then why aren’t I?” He pokes a finger into his stomach. Feels real enough. “God, this is so stupid. Why am I even entertaining this? I’m not dead, Danny’s not dead, and I’m too pretty to have ever been bl- uh, to have died, under unnatural circumstances.”

    ---

    Or, Tim wakes up from the Unknowing with a blank slate where the Institute had been, Danny sitting at his bedside, and a man with too many eyes haunting his dreams.

    Summary

    A look of wonder flashes across the woman's face. It burns bright and consumes her wariness for a split second, and when he sees the curiosity glinting deep in her eyes, he relaxes a fraction, because that's understandable.

    "A Lord of Time." She loosens her grip on the knife, then takes a step back which allows him to breathe out. "I've not heard that title before."

    "Well…" He tilts his head to the side. "I've had a lot of names over the years."

    Her response is as blunt as the rest of their conversation, but he can see the hint of a smile turning up the corner of her mouth. "So have I."

    Summary

    “Oh,” says Jon, numbly. “You don’t. Remember? Um. It’s complicated. What… what do you remember?”

    Martin seems to shrink in on himself a little. It hurts to watch, especially after how Jon’s seen him so painstakingly grow back into his openness over the past few weeks.

    “I don’t know,” he says. “I don’t – I don’t.”

    “But you remember me?” says Jon, and he tries to keep as much feeling out of that question as he can.

    ---

    For no reason that Jon can tell, Martin forgets.

    Summary

    Jon's working late at the Archive, which isn't all that weird. Pretty much everything else about the situation is, though.

    (In which Jon suffers, Martin makes tea to cope, and the Beholding has a little fun with its Archivist.)
