    Summary

    “He is fated to die today, the fourteenth of April in 2019.” Andromache tilted her head as she studied Yusuf’s body. “That is immutable. He has already died. But we could give him another chance at the day.”
    “Restart it?” Nile leaned forward eagerly. “We could warn him, or stop-”
    “No. He has to thwart death on his own terms, and it will hunt him throughout this process. He will repeat this day, with memory of those before it, and if at the end of seven days, he survives to April fifteenth with his soulmate at his side, he can live. If he dies on the seventh day, then that is his final death and time will progress from there. Is that understood?” 

    Joe is an art restoration technician who has been falling in love with Nicky, a baker near him, for the last two months. He's sure they're soulmates and is confident in their future together.
    The only catch is his death. At least he's got a spirit guide on his side to avoid it.

    Summary

    The next crack of thunder makes them both jump. They share a look before Andy chuckles under her breath and whispers, “Not me." 

    “Are you sure?” 

    Andy winks. “If I could, I’d pick my targets better.” 

    They burst into laughter, and she realises with a swoop in her stomach that she's laughing like this for the first time in a long time. It's all newnewnew around Nile, simply for being there and being herself.

    There are pieces of her that have shed off, cliff chunks falling into the sea. Nile had questions, so many of them; what was it like, have you seen this, did you meet them? Every time, Andy willingly dives headfirst into her memories to try and scoop something out.

    Summary

    "Did something happen that makes you curious?” Nicky asks.

    “Nothing new. She’s one of us, right? Andy said she lost a soldier, and I should know who’s on my team. Even if they’re MIA. Besides, I thought…it would remind me she’s a person and not the, the monster under my bed.”

    “And you think this would help?”

    “Yeah, I do.”

    “I won’t tell you not to try. But I think you already suffer with her, and it will not help you to mourn for her as well.”

    Or: Nile is adjusting to her new life, and she has questions. Nicky and Joe try to answer the ones she asks as well as the ones she doesn't.

    Summary

    She was starting to feel almost normal when Hap cautiously whispered, “Nile. Did…did you dream?”

    “Yes,” she said, feeling a chill, “Four people in a boxcar. Three men and one woman; I just saw their faces and not their daemons.” She chose not to think about that cold, dark place. It was hardly an earth shattering dream. If she were speaking to anyone but her daemon she would have tried to dismiss it.

    Hap let out a strained laugh, “I dreamed too. About four daemons whose humans I couldn’t see…”

    Summary

    An audio performance of Sixthligh's story (7min).

    The fourth time she fell off, Nile didn’t bother getting up right away; it would happen, she was just taking a moment.

    Summary

    The Old Guard has been around for a very long time.

     

    It’d stand to reason that they’d have encountered beings long forgotten. What Nile doesn’t understand is why no one bothered to tell her.

     

    Various snippets of the Old Guard being a little less than human, with copious crossovers because I have no self control.

    Summary

    The accident happened on a normal day, catching them off guard.
    It happened three weeks after Nile had joined the group of immortal warriors. Andy was still recovering from Booker’s betrayal, both physically and mentally. The wound in her stomach was healing slowly and surely it would have taken less if Andy hadn’t forgotten that she was, indeed, recovering. Both Nicky and Joe had tried stopping her from hurting herself even more, but her new mortal condition had made her grumpier than ever.

    Andy has to come to terms with her new mortal condition, and all the downsides that come with it.
    Nile is happy to help

    Summary

    Tweens. Nile's idea of do-goodery is less mercenary work and more community-building action. It sounds good until their safehouse is overrun with snot-nosed kids.

    Summary

    “So,” Andy says, when her back is turned and her hands are busy. “Can’t sleep?”

    “Mm-mm.”

    “Wanna talk about it?”

    “You don’t have to,” Nile says. 

    Andy closes the fridge, milk in hand. “I know,” she says. “That’s why it was a question, not an order.”

    In which Nile and Andy have a conversation about morality. And cows.

    Summary

    The chamber is deeper than Nile would have preferred, but it’s wide and tall; she feels like she can breathe in here. Andy takes the lantern and gestures with it, lighting up a wall of artwork, carvings and paintings and markings, and then she puts it down.

    “What was all--” Nile says. There was too much to take in.

    “I’ll show you in a minute,” Andy says, slowly. She pushes her hair off her face and then takes the stick out of her pocket again. “But first there’s the second part of the ritual.”

    Summary

    When they get the first dreams, none of them can make sense of it: darkness, an enclosed space, the smell of earth and old, stale air. No useful clues or even meaningful stimuli to use in figuring out who they’re dreaming of or where they are. The dream remains similarly opaque for the first week, and the frustration grows as they come no closer to understanding. Nile, the most sensitive of the group, gets the impression of terror, and Joe hears a voice screaming a name: Bruce. The name, unfortunately, means nothing to any of them. All of them notice that the subject of the dreams suffocates a couple of times. They don’t really talk about it.

    ((AKA Jason is one of the Old Guard and that's why he comes back, with the addition of Talia being a good mom and Jason meeting Damian in his time with the league, because I love that trope.))

    Summary

    For now she was closing her eyes and watching the light change behind her eyelids, enjoying the sun on her face. A bee buzzed nearby. A breeze drifted over her skin and rustled the grasses and flowers. There was no other sound but the sound of her breath. She lay there and breathed, feeling gentle and golden somewhere near the top of the world.

    Nile takes some time out.
