    Summary

    Tim clicked the recorder on, and both of them ignored the shiver its familiar rasp sent down their spines.

    “Letter from Robert Smirke, August 23, 1815. Taken from, ah, a document which was found in a box marked Highly Confidential: Do Not Open Under Any Circumstances, but it’s pretty old, so we figure whoever cared is probably dead anyway,” he said, shrugging. “It was interesting and we’re stuck in a horrible hell job, so, like, whatever. Who’s gonna stop me?”

    “Nice,” said Melanie, high-fiving him.

    Summary

    Martin was dreaming. That was the only possible explanation. He was having a weird, weird dream. He’d be embarrassed in the morning, and have to drag his sheets down to the laundromat so they wouldn’t be gross when he got home at night. Jon never noticed when Martin looked at his nose instead of his eyes anyway. As soon as he woke up everything would be fine. Just another completely normal day in the Archives with his unfairly hot boss.

    Jon hummed into Martin’s neck, rubbing his cheek into his shoulder. The small bell on Jon’s collar jingled, and he settled into Martin’s lap like he was going to nap right there.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He is in a library, torn between relief and regret as he decides there is no way to stop the Rituals without giving himself over to one of the Dread Powers. He shivers as he feels the first threads of Beholding’s might creep through his veins at the decision, and it is ecstasy and defeat at once. Years later, he’ll look back at this moment and feel sure the moment he gave in was the best decision he ever made, finally feeling at home in his place and his power in the way his human self could never manage.

    He has to spend the anxious moments waiting for his Archivist to emerge from the Lonely elsewhere, but he still feels the urge, when the man finally appears, fully marked, his Archive , to grasp him by the shoulders and embrace him.

    The Archivist trembles and snaps at the assistants surrounding him, before he knows what he is, as he’s learning it, when he’s finally chosen power and life and been rewarded for it.
