    Summary

    “Come in, Martin,” he says, not looking up from his notes. 

    “Hi, Jon,” he says, and Jon stops writing at the sound of his voice. “We’re out of the green tea, but we’ve got lemon?” 

    Jon looks at him. Martin smiles at him in his usual tentative way as he sets the mug of tea down on Jon’s desk. Heat spikes so sharply in his gut that he twitches with it. 

    “Thank you, Martin,” he says, mouth dry, and he stands up. 

    “Oh,” he says, sounding almost surprised. He smiles again. “No-- no problem-- um, what are you--” 

    Jon takes Martin by the shoulders, leans up on the tips of his toes, and kisses him.

    Summary

    When Martin gets a call from a “Mr. Poe”, he thinks it’s either A) a scam, or B) another one of his relatives calling about his recently passed mother. He doesn’t expect a banker in charge of the affairs of three children who are distantly related to him, and he doesn’t expect the conversation to be one of guardianship.

    But he feels for them, he really does, and he decides, after everything that’s happened (Jon, the Unknowing, the Flesh attacking the Institute, Peter Lukas) he could do some good for someone else for once.

    And then Jon wakes up.

    Make your choices. Face your fear. Date your colleagues. Hug Martin. Punch Elias. Enjoy Sky Blue. Or other combinations*.

    (*You can't punch Martin.)
    (You also can't quite kiss a full-out monstery monster so far, but I'm working on it.)

    Summary

    There is a knock at the door. With a heavy sigh, Klaus untangles himself from the mess of Dave's limbs with a mutter of 'I've got it'. They rarely get visitors out here, their closest neighbour being about three miles away, and Klaus didn't even hear a car or see any headlights outside.

    He opens his door, expecting to see old Mrs Richards asking for one of the dog treats they always keep for the occasions her dog runs off. He does not, however, expect to see his siblings - all of them, standing outside his door. Well, Five is being held up by Diego, and Vanya is being carried by Luther, but they are all there, on his doorstep, on this evening in 1970.

    Or, Dave doesn't die, but he and Klaus get injured and discharged. They move to a little cottage in the countryside and live together, perfectly content, until they get a group of surprise visitors. Five tries to send them all into the past to avoid the end of the world, and is drawn right to Klaus.
