    Summary

    Post-Merrick, The Old Guard goes to college, is domestic, deals with some loose ends, and everyone gets a happy ending.

    “I know you’re all as old as dirt, but I’m only 25,” Nile says. “I want to go out.”

    “Pardon,” Joe says. “Andy is the only one who is as old as dirt.”

    “Thank you, Joe,” Andy says.

    “I, on the other hand,” Joe continues, “am as old as… a Bristlecone Pine. Or perhaps a well-preserved and striking Obelisk from the Axum empire, stolen by Mussolini's fascist soldiers in the 1930s, and finally repatriated to Ethiopia in 2002.”

    “That’s weirdly specific,” Nile says.

    “You should major in archeology this time, my love,” Nicky says.

    “Mm.” Joe presses an absent kiss to Nicky’s temple. “There’s a thought. And I’m sure you aren’t suggesting it just because you want me to dress like that Indiana Jones.”

    “Of course not. Though I would not object,” Nicky says serenely.

    Summary

    “I wanted a choice.” His hand lingers on her diaphragm, steadying her furious, heaving breaths, and there’s nothing but defeat left in him as he says, “I wanted a choice for you and me, Andy. For us to move past all this fucking violence if we wanted to.”

    Andy scoffs, and winces as Booker moves lower, closer to her wound. “And do what?”

    “You really don’t remember, do you?”

    When Andy finds out the truth behind Booker’s betrayal, it makes her take stock of the past she’s left behind and the legacy ahead of her. She has a choice to make—one that becomes even more difficult when she comes face to face with Quynh again, and finds Booker tortured by her hand. A choice between living life between cycles of violence or carving out some semblance of normalcy.

    Andy has left her mark on countless lives across the millennia, but the thought of leaving a bit of herself behind scares the shit out of her.

    Summary

    Pain has an element of blank;
    It cannot recollect
    When it began, or if there were
    A day when it was not.

    It has no future but itself,
    Its infinite realms contain
    Its past, enlightened to perceive
    New periods of pain.

    - Emily Dickinson, "The Mystery of Pain"

    Stories demand to be told. Scars are the body's way of telling a story. But with immortal lives leading to pristine conditions, these stories must find somewhere else to be shared.

    Summary

    At the end of the day maybe he's just a different breed. A pretender to the pantheon of ageless warriors around him. He's weak, weak in a way the others aren't. He is starved, and hollow, and vicious. So utterly... human.

    100 years. 100 years is a long time, half his unnatural life in fact. But what is a few years in the face of eternity?

    Or Andy told Booker to live so that's what he's going do. But living has never come easy to Booker.

    Summary

    At the safe house in Goussainville, he could barely disguise his interest. There was Andy and Quỳnh, after all, and Joe and Nicky. Was she supposed to be his, just 200 years late?

    Then, it all went to hell. Nile hurled herself from a window. Booker offered her his hand. She accepted. Everything changed. Nobody realized.

    ---

    Booker and Nile are generally smart and usually rational immortal beings. They make decisions all the time. So why do Nile's visits always seem to bring warmth and sunshine to Paris? And why does this thing between them feel like destiny?

    Or, a Hades and Persephone fusion in which Booker and Nile find family, find each other, and find their fate.

    Summary

    Booker and Quynh are living with the rest of the team but they aren’t aware of their strange arrangement. Quynh ends up revealing it in a fit of rage and it sparks a few important conversations.

    “-the hell happened here?” Booker could hear voices arguing, although slightly muffled by the blood rushing in his ears, “Stop yelling!”

    “She fucking killed him!” Nicky sounded angry for some reason.

    “Quynh you need to breathe, please darling, we’re not mad at you.” Andy just sounded sad.

    “You should be mad.”

    And nope. Booker's heart may be pounding painfully hard in his chest but he wouldn't let Quynh spiral like this. It wasn’t her fault she became violent, “Quynh,” he said, voice rough and he broke off in another wet cough, blood splattering his jeans, “come here.”

But then again, when is anything simple for them?

    Summary

    There was the sound of a door opening and Andy heard several gasps echo in the room. She pulled away from the embrace she had longed for, for so long, and took a step towards the door and felt her heart drop. Right there, on the ground, was Booker. His hair was long and his clothes stained in blood and dirt but what stood out the most was the metal collar around his neck which had him chained to the wall.

    “Please.” his voice was raspy, as if he’d been screaming, or not have spoken at all for too long.

    Summary

    Joe watched through tear-filled eyes as Nicky knelt gracefully in front of him, taking his hands and tracing over his palms.

    “Do you remember Vienna, in 1979?” Nicky asked, voice calm.

    “Of course I remember,” he finally responded.

    “They tortured you,” Nicky said, guilt and grief passing over his face. “For days. And they didn’t touch me.”

    “I was glad,” Joe insisted truthfully. “I still am.”

    Nicky huffed a small laugh. “I know,” he soothed, going back to tracing his fingers over Joe’s palms. He let out a sigh.

    “And I am glad it was me, this time.”

    Joe and Nicky were separated before being transported to London. On the way, Keane took a special interest in Nicky. This is the fallout, and the recovery, for everyone.

    Summary

    "Just because we keep living doesn’t mean we stop hurting."

    Sébastien le Livre died, aged 42, after being hung as a deserter from Napoléon Bonaparte's Grande Armée, shortly after crossing the Bérézina. When he came back to life, it was with dreams of people like him. Always coming back to life. No matter how often they were killed.

    How can he adjust to a life where death suddenly isn't an option anymore? Where he is bound to remain the 42 year old he is now? But more than anything, how can he learn to trust the ones like him, who claim that they know what he's going through?

    Summary

    In the face of a century alone, Booker returns to that place which he knows best: Paris. Home.

    Before Quynh's arrival throws him back into his family's path, Booker passes that first year in isolation in the French capital. Only, he finds his solitude interrupted by his new neighbor. It seems that misery does, in fact, love company.

    OR: “Why are you so sad?"

    He swallowed, thickly, gaze darting to the window, to the street, to the world beyond. He downed his drink, then after a quiet moment, he replied, voice trembling, “Because I hurt my family.”
