    Summary

    And on he trekked.

    On and on, living and dying and freezing and starving. Never ending. Until he was found. Until he was encompassed in warmth from the light of other immortals who wrapped him up and saved him.

    They were beautiful. They were ethereal. They were…soldiers. And he was not. He was a coward.

    Summary

    When Nile and Lykon pretend to date so they can finally sleep in one of the better beds in Andy's safehouses, it seems like a decent plan. It’s not a sustainable plan, or a well thought out plan, but it is a way for Nile to finally find one single solitary perk in the new life she’s been thrust into. However, soon enough, Nile realizes she hasn't considered how dating another immortal will affect the dynamics of a team she's only just joined, or how lying to that team will make her feel. Already struggling to adapt and unsure of her place in the group she’s found herself in, Nile is soon torn between pursuing what started out as a fake relationship but might have real potential and coming clean to the group.

    Will her uncertainty about the work the team does and her relationship with Lykon damage her still fragile relationships to the group beyond repair? Is she even ready to be part of a new family? A canon divergence AU in which Lykon lives.

    Summary

    “Have a little faith, Book.”

    When left on the side of the Thames, Booker expects to spend the next century drowning his sorrows by himself. Returning to his flat in Paris though, it's only a matter of time before he's found by Dr. Kozak once again, who definitely won't be letting her key to the next Nobel prize slip away once again. With 99 years left to go before the others will even think to look for him, he knows that this is what he deserves.

    Of course though, the others aren't going to let him suffer, even if this is what he wanted. Cue a rescue mission, lots of comfort, and recovery from all manner of hurts.

    Summary

    Booker travels to New Orleans after encountering Quynh, hoping to live out the rest of his exile in peace, but, unfortunately, someone has other plans for him.

    Waking up in a cell, Booker sees a girl walk through a wall and wonders if perhaps the alcohol is causing hallucinations, or if he's being haunted by actual ghosts now instead of the metaphorical ones.

    Inspired by a kink meme prompt here.

    Summary

    Just when they think they're going to be dissected for their immortality, someone new is brought in.

    A man by the name of Robert Gadling, who laughs in Merrick's face and summons two more people for his protection.

    ...and that's not even the weirdest part of the day.

    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

    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

    Betrayal is sickly. Poisonous. Acrid. It tastes of the ashes of trust painstakingly built and carelessly burned away.

    In the aftermath of Booker's betrayal, the team is attempting to pick up the pieces. Booker is determined to make things right somehow. Andy is drifting, trying to find something to live for. Nile does all she knows how to: protect and fight and die (again and again). Joe and Nicky cling to each other. Quynh is out for revenge.

    Can the team be reunited before it's too late to make amends?

    Summary

    They found him half a century later, sitting by an empty hospital bed. 

    "Will it always be like this?”

    Andromache thought about lying to him. Thought about telling him stories of how wonderful immortality could be. Yusuf and Nicolò thought so, as had Lykon before he had died. Even Quynh had relished in it until she’d been taken from them so cruelly. But Andomrache knew in her bones that Sébastien Le Livre was not like them. Sorrow was written on the lines of his face. And, like called to like.

    “Yes.”

    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

    How Booker came to betray the Old Guard.

    “And if I told you I was trying to find a way to stop that from happening? To save lives?” Copley asked, pulling a tablet from his satchel.

    “Then I’d tell you that I’m a soldier, not a scientist. And neither are you.” Booker had heard these kind of spiels before. A hidden treasure, a lost secret, some document buried by the government that would change everything. The Guard didn’t chase fairy tales. Based on their last interaction, he would have expected Copley to be above that. But sad people get desperate. He knows that.

    Summary

    "...In a matter of mere months, Sébastien's nearness had gone from wanted to needed which none of them had counted on, and the lack of him now was enough to cause Nicolò’s wakefulness and ignite an ember of worry. He wouldn’t have gone far, Nicolò wagered, rising from the warm embrace of the mattress. Judging by the flickering glow beneath the door to the bedroom, he was proven right – Sébastien was obviously still awake and in the next room.

    Foolish man, Nicolò thought fondly, bare feet padding over dusty floorboards. They couldn’t die, not easily, but that didn’t mean they could live with being exhausted. Creaking the bedroom door open, the sight that met his eyes broke his heart..."

    ---

    As Booker has a moment of heart-wrenching grief, Nicky provides some wisdom and a shoulder to cry on.

    Summary

    Set post-film, alternate take.

    Quynh kidnaps Booker, and keeps him in a tank, drowning him over and over. She appears to be soothed by the sounds of him dying, perhaps because it was her background noise for 500 years. Booker, for his part, has an, ah,,, unfortunate sexual association with death by choking thanks to being hung to death for days on end. So. Maybe it's less torture and more comfort for two broken creatures?

    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

    It’s been only ten minutes when he hears the door open behind him. Too quick, surely, to condemn a man, though he suspects the votes are there. He hopes Nile will bend them toward mercy. He knows Andy will be the one to deliver the verdict when it comes.

    But it’s Nicky coming to his side now, resting his forearms on the railing and looking outward.
