    Summary

    She wasn’t sure what she had been expecting. Some eldritch horror, perhaps, a giant spider or a creature made entirely of eyes or some great crawling mass of insects (she had been told about Jane Prentiss, and was secretly glad she’d never had to see her in person; she would never tell anyone, but bugs creeped her out more than most things).

    But the thin figure curled up on the floor was painfully human.

    *

    Jonathan Sims never signed a contract with The Magnus Institute, and Sasha James succeeded Gertrude Robinson as Head Archivist, just like she always wanted, and bound herself to powers she had no understanding of. Yet.

    Some things change. A lot of things don't.

    For one, Jonah Magnus never lost sight of the potential he saw in Jon.

    Summary

    "Jon didn’t know if his marriage was abusive or not. It didn’t matter, though, because he wasn’t trapped. He could leave if he wanted. 

    But leaving would be giving up Jonah’s gift, and Jon wouldn’t do that. Couldn’t do that. He still had nightmares of teeth and claws and blood, not-quite faded memories of his life before. Jonah had saved him from that, and it was a gift worth the tears and bruises and fear.

    Jon’s relationship with Jonah was a delicate balance. If Jonah pushed too hard, Jon would leave. If Jon pushed too hard, Jonah would cast him out. The threat of their arrangement coming to an end was enough to keep them both in line."

    Jon is stuck with a jealous, cruel sorcerer husband. And then a baker moves into town.

    Summary

    Jon isn’t really Martin Blackwood’s biggest fan. And he knows it’s a him problem, because it’s not like Blackwood is a terrible person or like he loses on purposes just to ruin Jon’s life, but he can’t help it. In his defense, if you were on a hot streak and the same person kept coming in and ruining it for you every single time, you'd harbor a bit of resentment towards them, too.

    Summary

    Whatever he had predicted might happen, Jon wasn't expecting to survive upon demolishing the Panopticon. He certainly wasn't expecting to be rescued.

    Instead, he wakes up in an alternative universe where he's never been the Archivist, and Martin Blackwood doesn't exist.

    Martin Blackwood wakes up somewhere else entirely.
