    Summary

    By the time she turns 21, Nile has accepted it as one of those weird facts of life; sometimes it rains frogs in South America, lobsters can't die of old age, and there's at least three people walking around the Earth (or maybe just Chicago and that little part of Florida) that can't die at all

    or; 5 times Nile met a dead person walking and 1 time she was the dead person walking.

    Summary

    Alphas didn’t mate. When they came together, it was about conquest. Dominance. It was meant to be embarrassment for the taker: a wound or violation.

    Nicolo was meant to cry and concede his defeat. He was meant to accept his punishment and Yusuf’s glory. What he was not meant to do was whisper “Yes, anything you want,” as breathy as an Omega in heat. And Yusuf, Yusuf was not meant to come just from the mere thought of Nicolo giving himself over willingly.

    Summary

    “What’s the date?” she asked. She’d forgotten, hadn’t she?

    Nicky fumbled, then said, “Twenty-fourth? Or -fifth. I think. Of May.” A pause. “Maybe not, if you need the exact date I should—“

    She cut him off. “Ten years,” she said. There was a pause and then Joe raised his eyebrows with a soft ‘oh’.

    Or: A perspective on nearly a hundred years of friendship and change, and what that does to a person.

    Summary

    “You’re in my dreams,” Nile says.

    Once, she would have balked at saying something so bizarre, but the last few months have changed her. Truths she used to know have crumbled; rights and dignities she used to have were torn from her. Survival is what’s left, and knowledge is power.

    “Tell me why.”

    Summary

    The subject of Booker comes up the next morning at breakfast.
    "I want to talk to Booker," Nicky announces as he sits down at the table with a cup of tea, Minnie in his hoodie pocket and while Nile almost chokes on her bite of toast, Andy just keeps sipping her coffee undisturbed.

     

    -*-

    As things are settling down, the subject of Booker and the nature of his unique bond with Nicky slowly rise to the surface. While Nile tries her best to be of use, she also comes to terms with her own pain.

    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

    It’s not that Booker doesn’t understand. He does. He fucked up. He’ll take his penance on the rocks and not . . . he won’t complain in a hundred years when he goes back to that shore, to see if some of them are still alive.

    Andy won’t be and that hurts, like a catch in his chest that won’t go away.

    It'll be a hundred years before he sees his soulmates again (not that they know) and it'll be fine. Of course he didn't expect to be caught in a chemical expulsion or be tortured by Andy's ex.

    Summary

    In mid-April, as the trees outside start to bud and bloom, she runs into Joe and Nicky in the kitchen just before sunrise.

    Joe is sitting cross-legged on the counter, his hair wild and his eyes half-closed, eating a large bowl of oatmeal with one eye on the clock, and the other on Nicky, who is singing something in what sounds like Latin as he pulls things from the pantry. She cracks eggs into a pan, yawning.

    Joe ducks out of the kitchen before Nile is done scrambling her eggs to pray Fajr, placing a lingering kiss on Nicky’s mouth, and a swift one on Nile’s forehead as he goes, and when Nile’s food is done she takes a plate to the table and watches Nicky work.
