[Image ID: A comic consisting of 4 digital drawings, all drawn as uncolored figures on gray backgrounds. First image: Martin, a fat man with short hair and freckles, is standing in a doorway holding the door. He’s wearing a jacket over a hoodie, a backpack, jeans, and earbuds. He says: “Jon, I’m going for a walk and some groceries - be back in 30 minutes or so!” A text bubble reading “Ok!” comes from off screen. Second image: In the first half of the image, Martin is seen from the waist up, walking. Some music notes float next to his head. It’s now also visible he has an earring and his backpack has some badges on it. From off-screen, a text bubble reads, increasing in size gradually: “-tin! Martin! Wait, wait, hold up!” In the other half of the image, Martin has turned to the sound, taking out one earbud, shocked: “Jon?!” Third image: Jon runs into frame from the right. He’s a smaller man with a beard and medium length hair, partially tied together at the back of his head. He’s wearing glasses, and a coat with a scarf. He’s covered in small scars. He looks unworried. Martin asks: “Whats wrong, what are you doing here?” He replies: “No, everything’s fine, it’s just - “Where you go, I go,” remember?” Final image: They’re standing closer together. Martin has his arm draped over Jon’s shoulder, smiling with his eyes closed. Jon is looking up at him lovingly. Martin: “Oh my god, I hate you - You actually had me a bit worried, you know?” Jon: “Yes, sorry… I did actually want to come along with you, though.” /End ID]
I was just thinking of something cute and fluffy to draw that was still clearly post-200, when I happened across this post:
[Image ID: Tumblr post by @ceaselesswatcherspeciallittleboi : “Can someone who can draw make a “where you go, I go, that’s the deal” comic but it’s something cute like them being dramatic about going to the grocery store or something?” /End ID]
so i hope this suffices (and either way i wouldn’t mind at all seeing some other variations - can’t have enough fluff after that finale 😭)

prince philip died but honestly tim stoker has been through so much more. the hardships he’s faced aren’t even comparable to dying. until prince philip has done what tim has done i don’t feel sympathy

Hello Jon. Apologies for the deception, but I rather wanted to make sure you started reading, so I thought it best not to announce myself. I’m assuming you’re alone; you always did prefer to read your statements in private. I wouldn’t try too hard to stop reading; there’s every likelihood you’ll just hurt yourself. So just listen. concave butt. beholding slut. listening to statements makes me nut. expensive suits , lukas laps. give my big, eye a slap. and now you know the bouchard rap.

riffing a little on the idea of post 200 scenarios where jon and martin meet other versions of themselves, and more specifically meet versions of themselves that are together and are happy (discussed in this excellent post and probably elsewhere)... i'm mildly obsessed with the idea for a couple reasons, one of which obviously being i think it would do our jon and martin good to see that they can be happy, or at least that some version of them is. but also like. imagine you're the Somewhere Else jon and martin. imagine you live a normal life, have a mundane job, you're married and happy, and have never detected anything sinister about any of this, and then who comes dropping out of the sky? an alternate version of you and your husband in the midst of him stabbing you. and while you're taking the time to figure all that out -- you help this alternate version of yourself and your husband out because sure, why not, you're not an asshole, and that feels like bad luck. and hanging around, you get to understand what happened. maybe you hear tapes with the voice of you and your husband on it -- but a different version, a hardened, traumatized version who has been through things you can't imagine. you find out that some version of you ended the world, and was always meant to. you find out that you're sort of a god, or you were, and you had the weight of the entire world on your shoulders. and you find out that the forces that forced alternate you to do that have been sent here, because you and the alternate version of your husband betrayed each other, and managed to come together when it mattered, managed to stay together because they love each other, but it came at the cost of your husband having to effectively kill you, and it came at the expense of letting those powers into your world. where you and your husband have lived all this time, happy -- and maybe not untraumatized, but not traumatized like that.
i don't know. lots to consider with this scenario. like i love to think about Experienced and Well-Adjusted AU Married Couple Jon and Martin talking our jon and martin through their issues, but also i can't stop thinking about what a mindfuck that would be for that au version of jon and martin. to see what this different version of them went through. and to wonder if there's any chance of it happening to them.

Happy International Asexuality Day! Here have a Jon
[ ID: Jonathan Sims from The Magnus Archives, a dark skinned thin man with pockmarks and a scar on his throat, is standing with his hands in his pants pockets wearing a hoody with the colors black, grey, white, and purple of the asexual pride flag. He has shaggy brown streaked hair past his jawline, green eyes looking off to the side, and a small smile on his face. A question mark is in a bubble to the right of his head, and the background is white with a yellow rectangle block of color behind him. End ID ]

OKAY, here we go!!! the survey that you have all been taking and sharing has been thoroughly analyzed by our darling data gremlin!
this massive fan survey has been just one part part of the @eyelovetma project, a collaboration between around 130 fans of The Magnus Archives. the survey closed with close to 3,500 responses, and the results can all be seen right here.
if you’d like to see the other aspects of the project, please go look at the ELT website (which can be found on the tumblr linked above)! there you’ll see art, poetry, three separate sets of data, music, and an entire fanmade website for The Magnus Institute.
thanks to everyone who made this possible - i’m very emotional about all of the work behind this and i hope you all like it!!

So, any of us remember in MAG105 Total War, the librarian at the Pu Songling Research Centre in Beijing, Zhang Xiaoling, called Jon '建築師'*?
*(or, '建筑师' in Simplified Chinese characters as given in the unofficial transcript)
So, erm, it's been lowkey bugging me ever since I listened to it, because I speak Cantonese and (Traditional) Chinese is my first language, and '建築師' DOES NOT mean 'Archivist', like, at all. It translates as 'Architect' actually. (I meannnn, it could maybe half-convey the meaning if you squint at it in The Distortion's hallways? Coz an archivist organises documents like how an architect organises space....? maybe? loosely and metaphorically speaking? But, ehhhh, nope.)
And it's been months, but it hit me today '尚書' would have been a surprisingly fitting translation.
(long-winded explanations under the cut! This is a rather petty post about like one teensy detail in one episode lol)
So I looked up the term '尚書', and this is what showed up in the dictionary:
This is a rather niche term so sorry guys, there isn't a neat page in English with the same information (I linked the dictionary above though, so if you want you can check it out and Google-translate the page even though Google Translate of Chinese is horrendous lol), but basically there are two definitions of '尚書':
a collection of historical documents known as the Book of Documents, believed to have first been compiled by Confucius (551-479 BCE). The content is mostly records of speeches by ancient kings and other important figures from the early years of the Zhou dynasty (c. 11th century BCE). This definition has a Wikipedia page, you can look it up if you're interested!
An office title. The office held varying degree of power and had different responsibilities in different dynasties, but basically the official would be in charge of keeping records, documents, and memorials for the Emperor. The post was created in the Warring States period (476-221 BCE), originally occupying quite a minor position, but gradually gained status from Han dynasty (202 BC-220 CE) onwards, and was still in use in the Qing dynasty (1644-1912). (This definition does not have a Wikipedia page in English, sorry!)
I, erm, just think it's neat that '尚書' is BOTH a collection of historical documents AND an office title responsible for keeping records ::::)
...Especially since Jon is apparently both The Archivist and The Archive
(Thanks for coming to my TED talk nerdy ramblings)
(Did I write this instead of doing research for my dissertation? Maybe, maybe...)
