I still love like... the point in Magnus Archives where you start seeing the plot infect the narrator. Like. Jon is introduced to us as the Storyteller. The Crypt Keeper. The Kids of the Midnight Society. 
But then slowly the things in his stories start connecting. Hey I’ve heard about that character before. Gerard Key, hey scary books again. Oh wow Jon doesn’t usually believe in the stories interesting that he believes in the books. 
But that happens in some things. Are You Afraid of the Dark? had reoccurring characters that some of the kids would use. 
But then what he’s telling us about begins to creep out of the story segments and into the intro/outro.
It’s a not uncommon in podcasts. Lots of podcasts start out with one narrator and then as it gets more popular more people can be added in, but I appreciate the path Magnus took with it and how it was very intentional to let the horror seep in making the Storyteller not detached from their own story anymore.

I was thinking I should do a series of blog posts about the stories behind my collection of cursed items, sort of my own little Magnus Archives or Warehouse 13 or SCP facility or what have you, but I got rid of a lot of the collection recently. I wondered at the time of I'd regret it, but it was comforting to be rid of them. It still is.

I have had the scripts for these lil comics in my list with tma ideas for literally over a year now, since I first watched WWDITS (which tells you something about how effectively I actually use that list 😅) but i think now the time is ripe to actually do something with them
[Image ID: 2 comics drawn in simple black sketches on white backgrounds.
The first comic has 2 images/panels. First image: Jon, a thin man with long dark hair in a ponytail, a beard, round scars on his face, and square glasses, is standing next to Nandor, a tall man with long black hair hanging around his shoulders, a beard, and fangs. Jon wears a coat over a turtleneck, Nandor wears a cloak. In text bubbles, Nandor asks: “So, how did you meet your familiar Melvin?” Jon, annoyed: “His name is Martin, and he’s not my familiar.” Second image: Jon stands up straighter, he smiles, his eyes closed. “He’s my boyfriend.” Nandor is scratching his chin, thinking. “Ohhh. I was not aware you could do this with your familiar.” End of first comic.
The comics are separated by a black line.
The second comic has 4 images/panels. First image: Jon, looking the same as in the first comic, stands next to Martin, a taller fat man with short hair, a patchy beard, and freckles. He wears a hoodie. Jon says: “I still can’t believe they thought I’m a vampire.” Martin: “I mean... Aren’t you, though? A little bit?” Second image: Jon looks questioningly at Martin: “Explain?” Martin, smiling and motioning with his hands: “Well, Guillermo told me that there’s more than one kind of vampire. There’s the classis bloodsucking type, like Nandor, but there’s also kinds like an ‘energy vampire’, which feeds on people’s emotions just by being near them and annoying them.” Third image: Martin, smiling a bit slyly now, continues: “So technically, a vampire is just any person who is sustained by something only other humans make, including feelings. Sooo...” Final image: Jon grimaces, shocked, his eyes wide. He's grasping his forehead with one hand. "Shit. I'm a vampire." /End ID]

I made a set of index cards for @tmafearszine illustrating Smirke’s 15 fears. I’m posting them all in batches of 5, alphabetically; today’s the last batch (also my favorite!) The Slaughter, The Spiral, The Stranger, The Vast, and The Web.
Batch 1 Batch 2
Fun fact: The Spiral’s design is based on the maze from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.
The designs were inspired by Golden Thread Tarot. My Patreon also has all the sketches (and discarded attempts) behind the cards, available for viewing for the $1+ tier.

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.

So since this quiz has already proven more spot-on than I expected with the people who've taken it so far—hey y'all, I've made a Magnus Archives entity Uquiz because we didn't have enough of those right?, with the primary goal of making it as hard as possible to tell what you're gonna get while still being accurate. Lmk know what y'all get ^^

[Basic image ID in the alt text, more elaborate below the cut]
I do have some kind of  justification for why Jon would show up weird on polaroids (as opposed to digital media, when in tma it’s often vice versa) but to be honest, the actual justification is “because it’s funnier”. 
Bonus: 
Tumblr media
[Image ID: Jon is frowning, trying to grab the photo, which Martin has passed to his other hand. Martin is smiling, eyes closed. Jon: “I... I’m sorry it’s ruined. I’ll just, toss it-” Martin: “No, its - I want to keep it. I think it’s a good photo.” /End ID]
[Image ID: A digital comic drawn as black on white lineart, featuring Jon and Martin, consisting of 9 images, one panel per image. Throughout, Martin is a fat, white man, with short hair and freckles. He’s wearing an open jacket over a hoodie, and small round earrings. Jon is a smaller South Asian man with long, wavy hair, a beard, and glasses. He’s wearing a long coat. He’s covered in small scars. First image: Jon is leaning over a fence, holding out a handful of grass towards a long-haired cow. Martin is standing next to him, wearing a backpack, saying: “Oh! Jon, don’t move, I need to grab something.” Above Jon, gray, smaller text reads: “Yes, come here, here’s some fresh... grass?” Second image: Martin is kneeling while reaching into his backpack, saying: “I know I put it in here somewhere...” Jon is standing behind him, looking a bit confused, dropping the grass. Third image: Same composition as the previous. Martin is holding up a polaroid camera, saying “A-ha!” Jon, behind him, laughs. Martin: “What?” Jon: “Nothing, just- you would have a polaroid camera.” Fourth image: Martin is standing, holding the camera in two hands, smiling. “Yes, yes, ha ha - you know, I actually bought it years ago? But the refills are quite expensive, and I could never find anything to photograph that justified using it.” From off-screen: “Until now?” Martin: “Exactly.” Fifth image: Martin is holding up the camera in one hand, his other arm around Jon, who also has his arm around Martin. They’re leaning against the fence, behind them is the cow. Martin: “Now, say cheese!” A piece of paper is coming out of the camera. Sixth image: Laughing, Martin is keeping away a piece of paper from Jon, who is also smiling and reaching for it. Jon says: “You do know that shaking the photo doesn’t make it go faster, right?” Martin: “Jon, you are not going to take shaking the polaroid picture away from me.” The cow is still standing behind them. Seventh image: Same composition as previous. Martin has lowered the paper, Jon lowered his arm. Martin: “Okay, I think that should probably have been long enough? Let’s see what we’ve got.” Eighth image: We see the photo Martin took, his hand holding it, and Jon's hand, reaching for it. The photo shows everything the same as image five, except in Jon’s place is a big, black, staticy shape, with several realistic eyes placed in it. Ninth image: Jon, Martin, and the cow are all staring at the paper with baffled expressions, their eyes drawn as simple black circles with white centers. /End ID]
