    Summary

    There's a man standing in front of his table, a sheepish cant to his shoulders. His lovely, blonde-brown hair looks in need of a haircut since it's growing out somewhat unevenly, presently just long enough to hang partially in his eyes. His eyes are the most intriguing shade between clear blue and crisp green. He has a beauty mark near his mouth, a definitely Roman-looking nose, and enough scruff on his chin that Joe's not sure if he's trying to grow out his beard or just hasn't bothered to shave.

    He's fucking gorgeous, is what Joe is trying to say.

     

     

    (The past year hasn't been kind to Joe or Nicky. But a chance meeting at a local market sets them both on a path they weren't expecting. A path filled with love, magic and maybe, just maybe, some peace.)

    Summary

    “Why is Nicky asking Quynh to set him up with someone?”

    Joe’s heart gave a familiar, twinging pain. He shrugged and snarked, “Probably because he wants to date someone?”

    Andy stared at him like he’d grown a second head. “What? Nicky is dating you.”

    Joe barked a laugh at the ridiculousness of that statement and also to cover up the hurt that Andy was poking at. “Nicky and I are very much not dating.”

    Or: Misunderstandings, miscommunication, ill-advised hook-ups and pining. All the good stuff.

    Summary

    Sleep-warm and drowsy, Joe hums quietly to himself, like he’s considering his own arousal. It sits un-urgent and low in his gut. A faint suggestion of want, really; but it’s been long enough since he felt it that Joe’s heart is thin and beats rabbit-quick.

     

    Are you with me now? You feel very far away.

     

    (Marrakesh was a lifetime ago. The steady movement of Nicky’s ribs against the inside of Joe’s thighs; the memories they drew out of each other’s mouths between hushed conversation. Now replaced by the hungry rot of time catching up to Andy and the open wound of Booker’s betrayal, still unhealed along her side.)

    His left leg draws up, knee bending to give himself some room. A shiver sends goosebumps over his ribs.

    Joe breathes.

     

    After London, reeling from Andy's mortality and Booker's betrayal, Joe asks Nicky to take him away for a while. A sequel to 'felled by you, held by you'

    Summary

    "So," the one named Andromache said through a mouthful of bread. "Do you know where the other one is?"

    - - -

    By the time the women find Yusuf, long after his first death at the gates of Jerusalem, the fourth living immortal has disappeared from their sights. They aren't too worried; they have lifetimes to find him again. But that's before they find him at the mercy of a powerful sadist. Faced with something more beast than man, Yusuf struggles to reconcile the invader who killed him with the frightened prisoner before him.

    Summary

    Yusuf can suddenly see it unspooling before him, the life they could have together. Nicolò will be working as a guard at the castle, they can get to know each other for so many days to come. He knows his parents would never begrudge him whoever he loves. And Yusuf can see himself falling in love with Nicolò so clearly, so easily, it almost feels inevitable. Fated. 

    Nicolò, who already seems to know Yusuf so well. Who doesn’t see him as just a title and crown, but a person. Yusuf feels alight with the potential of it all. 

    He hesitates for a moment, then slings his arms over Nicolò’s sturdy shoulders, knocking their foreheads together. Nicolò’s hands immediately come up to fit around his lower back, steady and sure. 

    “I don’t feel so lonely now.” Yusuf breathes.

    Nicolò grins, pleased and crooked and perfect. 

     

    Or: Yusuf is a prince. Nicolò is a soldier visiting his Court. They spend a perfect few days together— it just means something different to each of them, that’s all.

    Summary

    Atef bandages the scrape along Yusuf’s knee, patting it gently with his hand when he’s done before scooching back to place everything carefully back into the little box.

    When he’s done, his eyes flick to the fig seeds drying on Yusuf’s sleeve.

    “I’m going to make you a deal,” he says then. “You can pick as many figs as you want, as long as you pick an equal amount for me. I cannot climb as high to reach the figs at the top anymore, so in this you’ll be doing me a favour at least.”

    Yusuf goes to shake his head, fear striking his heart.

    “I will never climb again,” he swears, with all the finality and graveness of a young boy who will certainly climb again.

     

    A look into some of the ways Yusuf has dodged, (narrowly) avoided, or out-smarted death in his long life – or, a slightly exaggerated but mostly true account of the times Yusuf thought he would die, but didn’t.

    Summary

    “Would it be bad to set something on fire?” Nicky mused. Nile lowered the sandwich she was about to bite into with a long-suffering sigh.

    “Depends what it is. If it’s a pile of logs in a fireplace, then no. If it’s your neighbour’s flat, then yes.”

    For the prompt: Shenanigans between neighbors who cannot stand each other and are each trying very hard to get the other to move out.

    Summary

    "The voice on the overhead speaker announces that the train will arrive in two minutes. Joe closes his phone and scratches at his beard, looking around the cool blue morning. Joe could sleep in for another hour and take the express train, but he’d rather sit for a longer, quieter commute than stand in a packed carriage.

    It’s definitely not because this is the same train that the hot dad with his adorable baby takes a few days a week. No matter what Booker and Nile say. It really is a nicer commute, even if pre-crush Joe would rather die than get up earlier than he needs to."

    Or, Joe is a library tech with a long commute, and Nicky is a permanently tired single dad.

    Summary

    “I just—” Joe settles into bed, curling into Nicky’s side like he does every night. “I just wish—”

    How? How can he say that he wishes it were as easy as a condom breaking, a mistake between two teenagers, or as easy as a husband impregnating his wife—something done four times with ease—and not sound like a cruel, jealous, petty man?

    “I wish I could give this to you,” Joe says finally, his voice soft.

    Joe and Nicky have been trying to adopt for nearly a decade without success. With the impending arrival of a new addition, Joe—hurt, frustrated, adrift—learns that love, hope, healing, family, doesn't always happen according to plan.

    Summary

    "Do you ever wonder what it would have been like to meet when we were that age?"

    Nicolò shakes his head at him fondly and follows suit. "At that age, I was already in the monastery. It would have been impossible for us to meet like that."

    "Don't ruin my fantasy with your common sense!"

    "Do tell me, then, love. How would we have met?"

    Summary

    "It was on their second date, between mouthfuls of fried dough and watching Nicky suck sugar off his thumb, that Nicky mentioned the tattoo he got under his top surgery scars. The way he looked right into Joe as he said it, steady and meaningful. The slight dip of his shoulders when Joe smiled and recounted the tale of his own tattoo, followed by the interest sparked when Joe told him where it was."

    A sequel to 'my animal body.'
