#The Magnus Archives
everything about mag34 anatomy class is so wonderful. lionel shivering and on the brink of nervous collapse telling jon about his class starting off normally enough but near tears by the end. the utter comedy of him SHOVING the apple at jon and jon going in the BITCHIEST tone NO THANK YOU!!! I DO NOT WANT THIS!!!! I DISLIKE THIS IMMENSLY!!!!! the utter hilarity of lionel teaching these kids about lungs and all of a sudden hearing several popping noises followed by loud breathing noises. the canonical fact that the students really were there just to learn human anatomy. the students all holding up grotesquely pumping hearts going "did i get it right :)" "no you fucking idiot they pump like this" "no like this" and lionel standing there in complete terror before gesturing vaguely at whoever had the most anatomically correct pulse and then running. the fact that he spent a full hour on his knees in shock and no one bothered to even look at him. the teeth apple. the note. this episode was fun for all ages truly

From the Magnus Archives Episode 154
The character designs for these two are based on the ones by @thirdchildart who introduced me to the podcast in the first place and who is storyboarding a big part of episode 159 'The Last' as a fan-project at the moment (It is going to be amazinG!!!)
I binged through four seasons in the last month and it was the perfect mix of horror and mystery to listen to for the autumn season. Now I still have the final season in front of me and man, have I grown fond of these voices, these characters, the story and the makers of the show as well. Just great stuff.

jon’s little “you don’t sound?? russian??” when he first meets nikola is so funny to me in retrospect bc it’s just. the wildest thing to nitpick in that moment. he’s got the world’s scariest clown mannequin ominously standing in the corner in complete darkness, telling him it killed at least one notable man, and his next thought is “why does she have an english accent tho” like ??? even funnier when you consider his question after that was “are you going to kill me” implying that the accent was more pressing to him than his safety,,, buddy you are so stupid sometimes

[Image Description: Colored digital drawing of Jonathan Sims, a thin dark-skinned man with short choppy grey hair, and Martin Blackwood, a tall fat light-skinned man with glasses and long blond hair in a loose ponytail. Jon is in an oversized hoodie and hugs Martin’s middle from behind, face pressed into Martin’s back and away from view. Martin is smiling with his arms crossed. Above Jon’s head is a small speech bubble with nearly illegible speech that could be “I love you”. End ID]
no calls during work because all the office people have the day off, time to redraw a thing from when jon said “i love you” in the podcast and it was clear he’d said it before
do not behold him he is busy holding

Hoop for Episode 26 - A Distortion, for @lilchillibeancosplay who won my TikTok giveaway.
"The first thing I noticed out of the ordinary was that the café was still open. Normally they shut up about six o’clock, but the lights were on and the door was open. I couldn’t see anyone behind the counter, though, and there was only one customer. He sat there in the exact same position he’d been in that morning, drinking what could easily have been the exact same coffee.
I looked around to see if there was anyone else who could confirm what I was seeing. The street was empty, but as I looked, a car drove past. In the curving glass of its tinted windows, I saw him there, the weird distorted body, rail-thin and limp, the hands huge and sharp. And then the car passed on and I turned back to see a normal-looking man. But now, for the first time, he was looking at me."
But Kiri, I hear you say, I thought you don't do the same episode twice! You're right, normally, but for my giveaways, I throw in the option to chose an episode I've done before. 😁

[Image id: the thumbnail of the most recent video on Jon and Gerry's gaming channel. It is
a picture of them playing Tetris on a computer. Jon is dressed in overalls, while Gerry is in a blazer and shorts. The caption reads: “Tetris is a game of strategy, deception and manipulation. It is a spiritual descendant of chess, with a dark secret at its core.”]

jon sims would’ve been the type of 27 year old to unironically say “isn’t this what the kids these days are doing?” and then very slowly and hesitantly bring his arms up into a dab

[ID: 3 pages, 9 panel monochrome comic featuring jon sims from tma. Jon is a slim British Indian person with long wavy hair with silver streaks, dark skin with scars scattered across and a bandage around his neck and left hand, a bit of stubble and he is wearing rectangular glasses and a non-descript hoodie with white sweatpants.
The first page shows the comics title “A little bit of comfort- set after mag 102”. Jon is walking down the hall to their office, grabbing their arms in a defensive pose with a sad expression, thinking: “Right then. Back to work.”. They open the door with a sigh and then perk up with a surprised expression, symbolized by a question mark and an exclamation mark. On his desk lays the statement of episode 103, as well as a mug of tea with a post it-note on it. The post it-note reads: “I made you some tea. I hope this is still your favourite... I (crossed out) we missed you, jon. Glad you are back. (Signed) Martin.”
Next page shows jons hand, trembling a bit as he picks up the hot mug. He cradles it in both of his hands with a small smile on his face as a tear rolls down his cheeks. Next to this panel, as well as in between the two following panels, are overlapping words written in a hasty font, saying the words: “hand, wax, cold” repeatedly. The third panel on this page show jon starting to tear up more, their expression is of someone that is desperately stopping to cry but they can’t, rubbing their eye with one of their hands. The fourth panel shows jon still crying, gripping the mug as they sink down to the floor.
The last page is one big image of jon sitting on the floor, curled up and sobbing, their glasses laying in front of them and the mug standing next to it. End ID]
You can blame my desire for Jon to have just one minute to have a breakdown, to just have one a good cry in this damned podcast for this lol. also because i think that receiving that tiny form of comfort in form of being made a warm cup of tea after the month they have had is enough to make Jon just bawl once they have a moment alone.
