    Summary

    “You need to learn a lesson,” she says, and there’s blood speckling her lips now. She’s overstraining herself. He needs to stop her, calm her down. “And until you learn it you will suffer, just like you’ve made me suffer.”

    “Mum, I think you need to--”

    It turns out that when his father had called his mother a witch, he had meant more than Martin realized.

    Beauty and the Beast-style au, very sweet with some darker themes that are mostly cathartic.

    Summary

    Much to Elias’ dismay, Jon doesn’t actually want to be an Archivist.

    Also… well, as Georgie put it: “There are only two situations where you’d say someone ‘died in the line of duty’: if they were actually a literal soldier, or else if you’re a serial killer and you’re not actually that committed to pretending you didn’t kill them. Unless Gertrude died in a top-secret war that’s going on in the basement of the Magnus Institute, I see only one option here.”

    Jon glared, but Georgie shrugged. “Sorry, Jon, I just call it like I see it. Your boss is a serial killer and you’re next on his hit list. Probably best not to take his creepy cursed job position.”

    ~

    In which Jon and Georgie are flatmates, the archives crew rock their dysfunction to the fullest, and the only thing that resembles canon is the way absolutely no one is cishet.

    Summary

    When Martin smiled, Jon realized that he had not considered Martin’s happiness his duty in a long, long time. He did not want his powers to make him happy. He wanted to provide that as a human being.

    Martin Blackwood has lived a life of solitude and pain, but he is rewarded with a donor, a person with magic who can help him find his happy ending. However, wounds that are not magical are the hardest to heal. Written for Ace Week 2020.

    Summary

    At least he was someone. Someone who could deal with the spiders. That was probably the source of the nerves unspooling like magnetic tape to fill Jon’s stomach with buzzing static butterflies.

    Yes, Martin was much bigger than a spider. He was probably the kind of person who cupped them in his hands and talked to them as he walked them out into the garden, which shouldn’t be giving Jon a burst of warm feeling at all, since his preferred method of spider disposal was simply to squash them on sight.

    Martin likes Jon almost as much as Jon hates spiders. When a statement from an institute employee sends them spiraling into the center of a complicated web, they'll need to rely on each other if they want to make it out alive.

    Interesting original statements, a lighter S1 parallel.

    Summary

    Newton's 3rd Law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So for every bit of angst and feelings I catch for IRL Mr. Sims canon, I'm going to create reactionary fluff. And you know to just the world in general.
