    Summary

    Martin swears he used to be optimistic when he was younger. But. You spend 32 years mostly alone, eventually you start thinking practically. Martin doesn’t get things like this. He doesn’t get to stay up late in cafés with cute boys and flirt and get asked out at 4:00 in the morning.

    He thinks, as he crawls back into bed half an hour later to try and salvage at least a little bit more rest before tomorrow begins, that he really hopes Jon proves him wrong. He hopes Jon sticks around.

     

    Or: Somewhere Else, Jon and Martin get the chance to fall in love without it all, and Martin's never been so pleased to be proven wrong.

    Summary

    In 1841, Jonah Magnus moved his Institute to London and established an Archive. Not a paper and ink archive: a human witness, a beholder.

    In 1849, Jonathan Sims tries to balance pleasing his master, feeding the Eye, and keeping his assistants safe.

    Summary

    Gerry never meant to tie himself to the Magnus Institute, alright? But he never thought he'd outlive Gertrude Robinson, either, and look how that worked out. It wasn't like working for the grumpy new Archivist was the worst thing in the world - he could still prevent the rituals this way, and try to keep his fellow archival assistants away from danger, even the ones who seemed pretty convinced he was a murderer.

    (In which the Head Archivist has four assistants, a rather recognisable book-burning goth tries to hide himself beneath the Eye, and Jon should really learn to read the news.)

    Summary

    “Statement of Martin Blackwood, regarding…” Jon looks at him. Looks at him. The look of a boss whose employee was late three times last week, the look of a man who was just busy doing something really important and now he’s here, doing this instead. “...why he stole a grieving family’s oven gloves.”

    -

    Martin has a run in with a deadly Leitner, leaving him choking on his unrequited love.
