    Summary

    This safe house, which had apparently been Barrett's, is big and elaborate, but it was built for humans and Azu has to stoop for most doorways. There's no way to go out and look at the sky, either, not in this Other London that's basically one big cavern. Azu can't quite imagine what it must have been like to grow up here, or anywhere underground like this. It feels stifling. Like it might cave in at any moment.

    She goes looking for Zolf.

    Excellent scene in which Azu and Zolf talk about Sasha.

    Summary

    So. Martin isn't expecting anything to happen. But then, one day, something...does happen. It happens when Martin is passing Jon in the hall, and stops to ask how he’s doing, because Jon always looks a little bit like hell these days, and it makes Martin feel like he has to do something, and useless small talk is pretty much all he can do, so that’s what he does. And instead of grunting or shrugging or mumbling something dismissive, Jon replies, with perfect, involuntary clarity, "Every part of me aches, and I would just about kill to have someone rub my shoulders right now."

    There's a positively deafening silence as they both come to grips with this unprecedented turn of events. Then they both start talking at once.

    "Ah." says Jon.

    "Wow." says Martin, at the same time.

    Very cute fic in which Jon and Martin both have Compulsion powers and therefore actually communicate.

    Summary

    “Martin. I’m a being of fear. An avatar of horrors. How do you kill something like me?” Jon waved his hands as if waiting for him to fill in the answer.
    Martin just blinked at him.
    “You love it,” said Jon.
    -
    Or, the story of how Martin and Jon discover the secrets to unraveling the horror-scape of fears during their time in the Scottish Safehouse. Five years later, they're free - Martin owns a bookshop, Jon is emotionally invested in the Great British Bake Off, and they're adopting a cat. There was a price to be paid for this small domain of happiness, of course, but sometimes a good epilogue is worth it.

    Summary

    "Right." Martin lays his head on his shoulder, glancing up like he's waiting for Jon to chastise him. Jon gently moves the stark white streak of hair away from his eyes, Martin brightens, "No monsters in Scotland."

    Jon blinks, focus drifting, "Y-Yes." the woman catches him staring, she smells so much of mold and rot and he can practically see the outline of her statement like a blazing constellation. They both look away, "No monsters in Scotland."

    Or: Jon hides things from Martin

    Really cool fic in which Jon/the Archivist very much needs a statement.
