    Summary

    “Whatever makes you happiest. You will have a life of luxury and pleasure. Anything you desire, I will move stars and mountains to give you whatever you wish.” Yusuf stated.

    “All I desire is you, Yusuf. I just want to know that you will not tire of me and cast me out when you are bored.”

    “Never, dearest. There could never be another that makes me feel how I do for you.”

    “Then yes.” Nicolo nodded. “I will stay with you. I will be your concubine.”
    ----
    Prince Yusuf didn't expect to fall for the man found wandering the wilds of his kingdom but it becomes clear that Nicolo feels the same. It only seems natural to bring Nicolo into his life, his bed, and ask him to be his concubine. The rest of the palace may never have a quiet night (or day) again.

    Summary

    When Joe finds himself blindfolded, gagged and bound to a tree naked, he at first thinks it’s a prank. He’s the new guy at the office, and who knows what people think is funny. But then who is the mysterious stranger who found him, and who Joe keeps having inadvisable but mind-blowingly hot sex with? And what’s up with his new boss who decided to hate him at first sight?

    Joe is determined to get to the bottom of all of it, unaware that he's being used as a pawn in the dangerous game someone else is playing.

    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

    Joe and Nicky have moved in the same circle is friends for a few years now, yet never met. Now, with Joe backpacking through Europe in a should searching trip and Nicky struggling through med school, feeling homesick, the two meet on the most unlikely platform - Instagram.
    Nicky's profile has one nondescript photo, Joe has been relaying his and Booker's adventures and has amassed quite a following. What could possibly bring them together?

    Or, a story about instagram etiquette, love in food form, friendship, miscommunication, pining and finding your place in the world. Will meeting face to face be enough to make that ember turn into a flame or will life and each other get in the way?

    My beta said it takes them way too long to get together, but I say I there's never enough pining.

    Summary

    Confused, Joe looks towards his husband to find him with his wonderfully pale eyes already trained on him. The look on his face is as familiar as it is wonderful. Nicky’s jaw is a little slack, his cheeks blushed with an almost innocent tint, his eyes hold bottomless amazement. Joe's shoulders soften with the weight of the love on his gaze.

    “One of those days, huh?” he asks, tone light.

    Summary

    “When you first realized that you couldn’t die, did you think it was a gift or a curse?” Nile asked, looking toward him.

    “For some time, I thought it was a curse. That I had done something to anger Allah and was being punished by dying again and again. Granted, most of that feeling was due to the fact the one doing the killing was an infuriating Christian who also wouldn’t stay dead.” He gave a soft chuckle. “I think we both believed the other was sent to torture us for all eternity. Those first few weeks were very ugly.”
    ------

    Joe and Nile discuss his thoughts on immortality, his early days with Nicky, and their place in the world. Also, there's an attempt to watch Bake Off as a family that doesn't last long when two people can't keep their hands to themselves.

    Summary

    “Hush, tesoro mio,” Nicolò whispered warningly but without any heat behind his words. “Or else Andromache and Quynh will hear us.”

    “So if I remain quiet, am I correct to assume that we will not go to bed yet, habibi?” Yusuf whispered right back, waggling his eyebrows playfully.

    “Well,” Nicolò murmured, a smile visible in his voice as his hands wandered over Yusuf’s body. “We will go to bed. Sleep, however, has to wait.”

    Remember to keep it down when your friends are sleeping in the tent right next to yours.

    Summary

    It’s a nice coffee shop and there’s Nile and the pay is decent enough that, together with commissions and his savings he can get himself through art school as a mature student - though Joe resents the moniker and takes great pride in showing to his classes wearing his cap backwards, a faded t-shirt claiming he’s too cool for school and his best grin.

    But the real perk of this coffee shop gig is the guy that comes in every day at 1:12pm, just like clockwork.

    Summary

    "One day, I realized all those things I had never felt before were there. It was love and attraction and desire. And it was just him. I’ve never felt that for anyone else. Not other men, not women. Just Nicky.”

    “Nicky-sexual.”

    “Is that the technical term?”
    ----
    In which Joe and Nile talk about his feelings for Nicky and how the world has changed. Also, Nile and Andy bond over how ridiculously (and sometimes annoyingly) in love the men are.

    Summary

    He cradles Joe’s face in his warm hands so gently, but there’s a firmness in the tips of his fingers where he digs them into the spaces around Joe’s ears, over his beard, through his hair, holding fast. 'I’m here, I’ve got you, it’s okay,' it says.
    Their lips meet in the middle for the sort of kiss they usually share in the silent moments after a battle, when the dust hasn’t yet settled and the blood still runs hot over their skin.

    Summary

    He wasn’t disappointed. Of course not. It would be childish if he was. Nicky chose each one of his knives with great care; if Joe asked, he could list out a perfectly valid reason for each one. Hell, he could more than convince Joe why a dive knife was absolutely necessary for this extraction to go as planned.
    It’s just...well, Joe had been hoping that one of the necessary knives for tomorrow’s job would have been a jambiya. Joe’s jambiya, more accurately. The one he’d gifted to Nicky just over a year ago.


    Yes, this is that missing jambiya scene from the “Missed You By a Few Minutes, By a Few Centuries” verse. Joe pouts. Nicky owns too many sharp things. They both pretend they’re not in love with each other.

    Summary

    He reaches into his pocket for his watch - he is supposed to be meeting someone else, instead of just watching, if that person ever shows up - and finds instead a small folded piece of paper.
    It’s folded into the shape of a butterfly, and Yusuf unfolds it carefully. The words inside are in Ligurian, the handwriting as familiar as his own.
    I miss you, is all it says.
    -
    Or, Yusuf and Nicolò are separated for a mission and find alternative ways to communicate.
