[image ID: a digital illustration showing six scenes from the magnus archives, divided up like comic panels in a 2 by 3 grid. The first panel shows Melanie being stabbed in the shoulder with a scalpel by a ghost. She recoils in pain with teary eyes and a look of terror, blood sprouting from her shoulder. Next panel shows Melanie stabbing Jon, the images mirroring each other in composition. Next panel shows Jon stalking Jess Tyrell.
Jon is depicted as a shadowy being with eyes all over him. Jess faces away from Jon, glancing behind her, looking terrified. The next panel again parallels the previous panel in composition, showing early seasons Jon being watched by many eyes, looking back with the same expression as Jess Tyrell. The final two panels show Melanie after the bullet removal surgery, and Jon in the episode Scrutiny after being confronted. Both face us head on. Melanie is covered in blood and looks horrified and dazed. Jon has eyes floating around him and looks guilty. Both are in shadow.
The characters are coloured in black and white, with all panels on the left having a red background, and all panels on the right having a green background. End ID]
Hi I made a post earlier about Jon and Melanie's arcs in the context of cycles, specifically cycles of violence, but words weren't expressing me right, so I made this instead
#the magnus archives#tma#jonathan sims#melanie king#it's 'unwell abt Jon and Melanie'' hours lads!!!!#idk I'm still not. super able to put my thoughts in words#I'm sure it'll come to me when i finally relisten to season 4 (IT'S GONNA HAPPEN I'M GONNA START OVER CHRISTMAS BREAK)#but the main gist of it is like. how jon and melanie have parallel arcs in the specific sense that#a specific type of harm is done to them (melanie it's being attacked violently and jon it's being watched voyeuristically)#and this then becomes the type of harm they begin to replicate (jon w/ feeding and melanie w/ giving in to the slaughter and attacking ppl)#and how they try to steer themselves off this path specifically after realizing they're specifically replicating the harm done to them#w/ melanie the parallel is she stabs jon the same place she was stabbed#and after the bullet was removed she reevaluates her life and decides to start trying to get better#Jon's is less of a clear parallel but i remember how tumblr user @red-archivist made a post about how#jon says in 111 that he enjoys compelling ppl- which is obviously not a good thing#but is understandable in the context of him developing this ability#after having to fend for himself the past two years with so little understanding of what was happening to him#and how he's constantly tempted into Knowing via the prospect of using that knowledge to protect ppl#which is heart wrenching in the context of things like him not realizing sasha had been replaced#and how this is all a very intentional manipulation done to jon to make sure he would lean into these powers and Become™ faster#i do think that for the most part jon and melanie have very different arcs#Melanie's arc is about trauma harm and healing whereas Jon's is more existential and moral and ends in tragedy#but i think this is a very interesting intersection for them to have??#it's interesting that the one thing they have in common is their own destructive patterns-#-(in the sense of it being cyclical. like i said melanie is more about violence whereas jon is voyeurism)-#-when their dynamic is commonly described as seeing the things you hate abt yourself in someone elsw#*else#idk! food for thought! rip the dimensions on this piece

I am the firm believer that if Mike Crew had survived MAG 91 then Jon probably would have killed him during his revenge quest portion of Season 5, depending on if they ran into each other or not. I kinda wish Jon’s feelings about Daisy killing Mike were brought up in podcast but that just means I get to write my own headcannons, as what a lot of this comic pretty much is XD This ended up being the prettiest set of pages I have one so far and I’m loving it

The Lonely is one of the few entities Jon has not yet had the displeasure of encountering in person, but he doesn’t need his patron’s powers of omniscience to recognise the desolate plains of the Forsaken. No sounds from the outside world reach him here – even his own breath sounds muted. Still, he shouts again.
“Martin?”
The final chapter of After everything is said and done for @tmabigbang is up now

Had a dream in which the s3 archival assistants found the Nikola tape and made Elias tell them where John is so they could rescue him. Unfortunately, Helen rescued John while said assistants were driving to go rescue him, and so the assistants mistakenly believe that John's dead.
Tim: I hated John, but I didn't want him dead.
Melanie: Same.
Daisy: I did.
When the assistants get back to the institute, Elias has decided to let the assistants believe John is dead, and I think he promoted Tim or Martin to (backup) archivist (I vaguely remember my dream kept flipping on which one was promoted and no one questioned this). Meanwhile, Elias was keeping John trapped for no apparent reason?
However, Tim survived the Unknowing (somehow) and Melanie found John while Martin was distracting Elias.

"Please state your name and the subject of your experience."
"Into that? You're joking."
[ID/ digital colour drawing of Melanie King, portrayed as a young white woman with dark shoulder-length hair that is died blue at the bottom. She has a nose ring and gauge earrings and is wearing a white 'Ghost Hunt UK' tank top, of which the 'o' in ghost is replaced by a simple drawing of a ghost. Her expression is hard and somewhat sceptical.]

[ID: A digital fanart comic of The Magnus Archives. In it, Jon is a Sri Lankan man with brown skin and shoulder length black hair. He is wearing a teal jacket with a What The Ghost shirt and black trousers. Daisy is a white woman with black hair in a ponytail, wearing a white shirt and police vest. Martin is a Polish/Argentinian man with tanned skin and short brown hair and glasses, wearing a maroon hoodie and navy t-shirt. Basira is an Arab woman with brown skin and long black hair, wearing a brown jacket and teal turtle neck. Melanie is a Chinese woman with long bleach blond hair and black roots, wearing a black dress with translucent sleeves. Tim is a Malay man with tanned skin, and messy short black hair, wearing a white t-shirt and blue jacket.
On the first page, the first panel shows Jon talking on the phone, with illegible speech bubbles. Daisy takes notice of this. She enters a room containing the other assistants, and says "Someone ought to tell Sims to be a bit quieter when he's arguing with his..." the next speech bubble is over an image of the assistants looking up in surprise "girlfriend or whatever". Girlfriend is underlined.
Melanie responds "No that's-" but is cut off by Martin's larger, spiky speech bubble of "Girlfriend?? Daisy? Huh? What?". Basira interjects that "Wait does Jon have a girlfriend?" before Melanie slams her hand on the side of the panel she's in, yelling "He doesn't have a girlfriend! He was probably calling Georgie." She is visibly flushed.
Daisy looks frustrated and asks "Who's Georgie?". Melanie, now sweating, says "She's... She gave him a place to stay. They're just friends." Daisy's mouth has been erased for comic emphasis, and her eyebrows are a V shape. In the next panel she is more relaxed, saying "Oh. Yeah that makes more sense. Can't imagine he's taken right now." Basira is standing beside her, and Tim has appeared distantly behind them.
Tim then says "I mean..." and Daisy takes notice. He follows up with "He actually is, y'know. Somehow." All four assistants appear in the panel's corner with bulging eyes, exclaiming "What?!" in unison. Now Tim scratches the back of his neck, looking at Basira and saying "I thought you guys knew by now." Martin appears looming over him, with a spiked speech bubble saying "Know what, Tim?" Basira looks horrified as Tim gestures towards her and says "That you two are... you know." In a spiked speech bubble she then yells "What are you-" before cutting herself off and her face going blank, adding "Wait." She then looks annoyed, saying "Tim that... That was a lie Jon told you." Tim responds "...What?" and Basira says "Me and Jon never dated. He lied to cover up the fact that I was giving him evidence."
In the final page, Tim is alone in a box staring blankly ahead. As his co-workers say "...Tim? Tim are you alright?" "Tim?" and "Tim? Tim speak to us", the box he's in shatters like broken glass, leaving him standing in a white void. Still staring ahead, he simply says "I'm going to kill him." End ID]
Thoughts that occasionally plague my brain: we never see anyone actually tell Tim Jon and Basira aren't dating, ergo, I should make a very long comic about the dumbest way that could've happened <3 (also big thanks to Oran @radiosandrecordings for helping me w/ the ID)

Fix-it fics where Jon is still the Archivist be like
(Image ID under the cut)
[Image ID: A short comic consisting of three black-and-white digital drawings. First image: Jon, a slim Indian man with long, dark hair, a short beard and moustache, wearing glasses, is calling someone on a smartphone. He’s covered in small worm scars and wearing a sweater. A speech bubble reads: “Alright, so that’s a margherita, a vegetarian, and... Georgie?” A speech bubble from off screen says: “Just a pepperoni!” Jon continues: “And a pizza pepperoni.” Second image: We still see Jon, but now from behind, revealing a table with three other people sitting around it: Martin, Melanie and Georgie. Martin is a fat white man with short hair, wearing a hoodie. Melanie is a thin woman who has shoulder-length hair, a nose piercing, and is wearing a jacket. She has her eyes closed. Only Georgie’s face is visible behind Jon’s shoulder. She’s a Black woman with short curly black hair. Some kind of board game seems to be set up on the table. There is a chair free for Jon. He asks them: “Am I forgetting anything?” Martin replies: “You don’t want anything yourself?” “Ah, right,” Jon says. Third and final image: Almost a complete copy of the first, but now Jon has his eyes closed and is looking satisfied. He’s gesturing while he speaks. “Please send your most traumatized delivery person.” End ID.]
