    Summary

    "I missed this," Jon found himself saying. And then, because it didn't seem like enough, "I missed you."

    I missed me as well, said Martin's face as he tugged at the teabag he was holding, again, and again, and again. He didn't look up to reply. "There wasn't a lot to miss, near the end."

    "Well, I still did."

    Summary

    ~~~~FINALE SPOILERS IN SUMMARY Y'ALL~~~~

     

     

     

     

    Everyone likes to believe that given a crisis, they would have the fortitude to accomplish the impossible, to become the figurative mother lifting a car to protect her children. Martin wants to believe he has it in him. After all, he just found the strength to stab the person he loves more than anything else in the world; if he could make himself do that, anything is possible, right?

    That is to say, when the sound of tapes rewinding and unspooling and tangling up in themselves begins to drown out the sound of the Panopticon falling, Martin throws his arms around Jon, knife handle still protruding around him as the world starts to tear at the seams. I won’t let go, no matter what, he tells himself. One way or another. Together.

    He doesn’t anticipate the love of his life dissolving into a pile of magnetic tape between his fingers.

    Or, these boys are in for a bumpy landing.

    Summary

    "I’ll be honest, I don’t often take new patients, and I want to make sure that the service I provide here is a good fit for your needs. Would you like to start with the reason you decided to set up an appointment with me today?”

    Jon twists the newspaper clipping in his hands again, then notices Dr. Bright looking down at it. His face gets hot, and he quickly tucks it into his pocket. “I, uhm. I saw your ad. It, ah, caught my eye, I suppose you might say.”

    Dr. Bright smiles. It’s a genuine smile, one that crinkles her eyes at the corners, but it also does very little to help Jon gauge her response. “Of course. It’s not exactly the most… typical method for advertising a therapist. Was there any particular reason it drew your attention?”

    Jon chews on his lip. “Well, ah. I don’t know that the sort of problems I have could be helped by any typical therapist.”

    ----

    Or, Somewhere Else, Jon finds a therapist.

    Summary

    “You who watch and know and understand none. You who listen and hear and will not comprehend. You who wait and wait and drink in all that is not yours by right.”
    All of his surroundings fall away. He doesn’t know where he is. Doesn’t hear the raging thunder outside. It’s only static and electrified power coursing through him as the words become clearer and clearer in front of his eyes and he cannot find any way not to surrender.
    “Come to us in your wholeness.”
    He doesn’t hear or see the door to the room open. He doesn’t see Martin’s terrified face, searching frantically for an explanation. He doesn’t hear him calling out his name.
    “Come to us in your perfection.”
    Martin grips his shoulder and screams at his face. He doesn’t see it. He sees the perfection, the absolute truth and wholeness of the Eye and there’s not a part of him left to fight it. His entire being is comprised of utter awe for the unimaginable power from beyond, descending now onto him.

    MAG160 except Martin makes it back to the cabin before Jon finishes the ritual.
