    Summary

    Martin can see the way that Jon's hands shake, and the dark bruises around his eyes. He notices the jitters and the skipped meals and the way that Jon is first in the Archives in the morning, and last out at night, assuming he ever leaves.

    It can't go on. And Martin thinks that he might have a solution.

    Summary

    There’s not a lot of things Jon notices these days, too wrapped in his own head, but when Martin keeps squirming whenever he turns his eyes in his general direction for the last two hours it’s hard not to take notice.

    Summary

    "We don't have to," Jon clarifies. "I just thought you might enjoy it."

    Martin would very much enjoy it. "It's just - it wouldn't do anything for you."

    "Not in the way you mean," Jon agrees. "But… Making you feel good… I think you don't fully understand how intoxicating that is for me."

    Summary

    “Hold on—” he reaches a hand towards Martin’s face, “you have a piece of dust or fluff or something.” Jon’s fingertips brush his cheek, feather-light for just a second, and then they’re gone, leaving the scent of coriander and mint in their wake.

    It renders Martin nearly dizzy. “Oh,” he breathes, “thanks,” he says, and it’s almost inaudible, even to himself.

     

    Childhoods are discussed during grocery trips, feelings spilled over wine and Scrabble, and marriage
    proposed on linoleum flooring.

    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.
