    Summary

    “We know that Tim is an avatar of the End, and that he can—what, bring people back from the dead?”

    Tim shrugs. It’s an overly casual gesture for a less-than-casual topic, but it’s been a long few days, and he’s tired, and it’s become almost mind-numbingly easy to admit that he’s basically a glorified necromancer.

    ---

    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.

    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.)

    Summary

    Jon and Martin go to a Ceilidh, and experience some of the perks of living in Scotland

    “A ceilidh,” said Martin with a grin. “That’d be fun, right?”

    “A ceilidh?” echoed Jon.

    “It’s a dance,” said Martin, slipping his phone back into his pocket. “Scottish dancing – you know, with the spinning, and bagpipes and fiddles.”

    Jon wrinkled his brow. “I know what a ceilidh is, Martin. I just – why did you take a photo?”

    “To show you,” he said simply. “It’d be fun. C’mon, Jon – we can’t stay holed up in the cottage forever.”

    “We should’ve,” muttered Jon. “Bloody freezing out here.”

    Summary

    "Very well then, officer, take me away. And Martin?"

    "Yes, Elias?"

    Elias opened his mouth as if to say something, then closed it again with a shake of his head.

    "Actually, never mind. I will see how it plays out."

    Martin let out an annoyed sigh as Elias left. Always so goddamn cryptic.

    Hopefully Jon and the others would be back soon to make sense of things.

    -

    Here's a hypothetical question: What would happen if no one noticed that Jonathan Sims survived the Unknowing?

    What if they looked at his stopped heart and still lungs and decided he was dead?

    What happens when you bury an Archivist?

    Summary

    “I’m eight.” the kid sniffs as if eight was any different from four, maybe not an unspeakable horror then, just a regular horror. “And I heard that the Magnus Institute deals with-” his little nose scrunches, cute. “-spooky things.”

    “Do you have a-” he cracks a grin, and then rethinks it as small hands tighten against their burden.”-spooky thing to deliver?” gods he hopes not, it’s bad enough when adults walk in and lay out all of their baggage, but for a child-

    “There’s a spider in this book.” the kid says solemnly, raising his textbook sized parcel. “It ate Evan Pritchard.” a bloody fucking Leitner. Of course an eight year old would find a murder spider book. “This seemed like the best place to bring it.”

    Summary

    I hope you find your new role as Head of the Institute as rewarding as captaining the Tundra, wrote Elias Bouchard, to Peter Lukas. There are so many people working there: all with their own interesting lives, and all desiring your attention and support. I'm sure you will relish the challenge it will bring and enjoy every moment spent with the fine men and women of the Institute. In time I'm confident they'll become like a family to you.

    The Magnus Institute has a new boss.
    The Magnus Institute also has a new tech support technician.
    These two facts are unrelated, except they both happen at the same time.

    Meanwhile Jon's woken up from being dead for six months and for once he's trying his best. He just wishes Martin would stop avoiding him and answer his messages...

    Summary

    In hindsight, Martin probably should have turned it down, but when faced with Elias Bouchard's polite smile and an offer that would put his financial struggles behind him for good, accepting the promotion to Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute just seemed like a good idea at the time. Even if it put him at odds with Gertrude Robinson's former assistant.

    The good news is that there are far worse things to contend with than a disgruntled Jonathan Sims.

    The bad news is that he's going to have to.
