    Summary

    "Oh, so you two know each other," Tim grins, clearly delighted by this development.

    With a lack of anything else to say, he falls back onto his default state.

    "Unfortunately," Jon replies drily.

    ---

    Jon's first day as Head Archivist starts with him being introduced to a new hire, Martin Blackwood - a man he hasn't seen in ten years.

    He's also his ex.

    It's a bit of a problem.

    Summary

    “Have you got anywhere to stay?” Jon asks him, briskly. “Friends, acquaintances, maybe, who you could stay with…?”

    Martin flushes, deeply. “I, I mean— n-no, not really,” he stammers, and then goes even redder. “Or, just, y’know not that I’d want to, to. Put in the middle of this. Put in danger of, of worms.”

    “Ah,” Jon says, “No, of course, that makes sense.” Why drag anyone else into this mess? Seven people died during Prentiss’s initial hospitalization; the collateral damage of roping someone from outside the Institute into her orbit doesn’t bare thinking about. “In that case…” Jon feels like there’s some alternative solution, one he’s just not thinking of at the moment, but it evades him, and Martin needs somewhere safe to stay. “My couch is quite comfortable. You’re welcome to come and stay with me until you figure something else out.”

     

    Martin is held hostage by Jane Prentiss for two weeks, and can't go back to his flat. Jon offers him a place to stay until Prentiss and her worms can be dealt with, and they can be sure he's safe.

    Summary

    “Did, um. Would you like an excuse to not have to go back to the party?” Jonathan asks, lip twitching a bit. “I thought of one.”

    “Enlighten me.”

    “Someone who was also outside having a smoke asked you out.”

    “Oh, that’s not bad,” Georgie says, tapping her chin in mock contemplation.

    “I thought it might not be.”

    This is fine, Jon keeps telling himself.

    Georgie disagrees, and Jon does, too, in theory.

    Summary

    Georgie thought she knew what yearning was. It turns out all she knew were loose synonyms, the basic dictionary definition. Love has never been a foreign language. It’s not as if she’s been without. She’s been sure of what all of these things are, but now it’s like—
     
    It’s like a hammer has been brought down on her heart and cracked it wide open.

    Or, Georgie Barker discovers the butch identity, and where she fits into it.
