    Summary

    Martin rides with Jon to the train station. He insisted. Said he shouldn’t have to go there alone. “Nothing worse than leaving on a trip with no one to send you off,” he’d said. Jon had nodded, gratefully, and swallowed back the burning lump of what he wanted to say—Come with me, come to Scotland, I don’t want to leave you alone again. He kept hearing Martin’s words in his head: I really loved you. And he couldn’t ask Martin to do that, to leave his whole life and everything behind to become a fugitive, cower in Scotland and throw his whole life away. It’s too much. And Martin has already sacrificed so much for him.

     




    He’ll be content with Martin seeing him off. That can be enough. That will be enough.

    Summary

    “Do you know much about cataloguing?” Jon asks, a little out of breath from the stairs.

    Martin, mid-trolley, rolls his eyes. The gesture he makes at the shelves around him is only emphasised by the book he’s holding.

    “What exactly do you think I do here, other than sit around and wait for angry patrons to yell at me?”

    “Think of what you’re going to yell back?” Jon says, and Martin’s mouth twitches into a smile.

    -

    Asking the very important question: what if Jon and Martin had a gentle archives/library romance, and kept running into tropes? What if there was mutual pining involved? Only one bed? Fake dating? Hurt/comfort? Or perhaps, a soft and happy ending?

    Summary

    And suddenly Martin can feel his tongue, and sense each swell of his lungs. He realises how sore his neck and lower back are after months of hunching over a computer. The suit jacket he wears, has worn every day for weeks, is too tight on his upper arms.
    Oh, god. He is in a room with Jonathan Sims.
    “You’re really suggesting this,” Martin says, voice pulled thin.
    “Yes.” Jon does not hesitate.
    “You would- actually do it?”
    “I would.”
    “Why?”
    Because love is blind, says something cliché and cruel in the pit of his gut. Christ, he never was much of a poet, was he?

    Or,

    When Jon asks Martin to Quit the Archives with him, Martin says yes. In the Scottish Highlands, they hurt, and they heal.

    Summary

    "It occurs to me that - ah - I may have forgotten to mention something, earlier," says Jon, somewhat belatedly.

    It also occurs to Jon that the traditional time to mention this particular detail would be before letting one's boyfriend shove his hand down one's pants for the first time, but, well. In his defense, he'd been so dreading the goddamn sex talk, and so relieved to finally have it out of the way, that discussing certain specifics of the act had somehow slipped his mind entirely.

    "You think?" says Martin, in that particular tone of fond incredulity that Jon finds so reassuring. The tone that means 'you've done something ridiculous and I've decided to find it charming.'
