    Summary

    Inspired by A Star is Born (2018) but with different angst and a much happier ending.

    Reports confirm long-time bachelor and music icon Joe Al-Kaysani skipped his band’s legendary afterparty last night in favor of returning to his hotel with his new love interest, Nicolò “Nicky” di Genova. The two were spotted both before and after the show, with those close to Al-Kaysani speculating he may have finally found “the one”. Could this be love? Did last night’s performance mark the coronation of music royalty’s newest couple? Could Kaysanova be the dawn of a new era? Industry insiders seem to think so.

    Summary

    Nile’s life hasn’t been that awful since she died for the first time in 1912.

    Okay, granted, working for Merrick Pharmaceuticals and acting as their oldest living immortal lab rat wasn’t exactly what she had dreamed of doing all her life. It was also a bit lonely being the only one of her kind, but Nile was fine, really.

    All of that looks like it might just change when a burly Frenchman with the saddest blue eyes that Nile has ever seen walks into her into her ravenous wolf den of a workplace and asks to be cured of his immortality.

    Lykon would just like to know where his best friend wandered off to. Nicky and Joe are the first people to jump on board with looking for Booker despite the way that they both had nearly two hundred years of very painful romantic yearning built up for Lykon, because they’d never want to get between Lykon and his boyfriend.

    Everybody needed another miscommunication or incorrect assumption like they needed another hole in their head, but that never seemed to slow motherfucking Destiny down any.

    Summary

    Everything was too tangible for a trance, too unfamiliar for some memory, and far, far too real to be a daze.

    Not one of them was a stranger to unusual dreams. Nicky's dreams are hardly his at all, however, and he finds that cannot help but wander. Though it takes some time, he gradually learns that he is capable of more than observing.

    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

    Tiberius laughs—Yusuf suspects he does that a lot and marvels at how much joy he can still possess after such a long life. The fair haired man seems to glow with it. Warm and bright like the sun in his fair complexion where Nicolò is cool like a winter dawn or the ocean.

    This is how they came to know Tiberius of Scythia, adopted son of Andromache and Quynh, brother of Lykon—now laid to rest—and now their “little” brother despite his superior age. He was a man enamored with humanity, passionate in every action he undertook. He was a man possessed by an air of eternal youth and mischief that was certainly the envy and pride of trickster gods of every pantheon.

    Summary

    Since being stranded here, I have concluded the following: 1. I’ve been in a dust storm for several sols. 2. Shit. I suppose I’ll just have to think of something. Or die. Nicky, my love wherever you are, remember how we always joked that I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew, and that I would only be 'in command' if I were the only one left?

    Well I'm in command now.

    Summary

    And so it came to be that Earth’s first contact with intelligent alien life was not an invasion or some mysterious signal from the depths of space, but a plea for help and an offer of salvation.

    The Scythians come to Earth after a catastrophe destroys their planet and renders them effectively infertile. They need the humans and perhaps the humans need them as well.

    *Joe & Nicky are the main pairing, with the other couples in the background

    Summary

    “Why does he keep doing this, Quynh?”

    Nicky is aware that he’s three cocktails past drunk, and that he’s likely ruining Quynh’s night with his lamenting. But it’s just too cruel.

    “Why does he always pick the biggest assholes?”

    He watches Joe – there’s two of them, which is perfectly fine with Nicky, because there can never be enough of Joe’s beauty and Joe’s smile and Joe’s – Joe’s everything – but the price is that there’s also two of the absolute dickhead Joe is currently kissing way too enthusiastically for a public place – and tries to shakes his head, but he has to give that up in favour of sinking it on his folded arms on the table.

    ***

    Or, the one where the team decides Joe and Nicky are idiots, and a small kiss is needed to change everything.

    Summary

    "Well, it's not like gay people just appeared in the twentieth century," Joe says. "There have been plenty of other times and places where Nicky and I were unremarkable. Well, at least our love. Wise men of history have always seen my Nicolo's beauty as divine. Why our friend Micky from Florence used him as a model for one of his more impressive statues. It's still around today"

    Nicky can see the host connecting the dots. "I'm sorry, do you mean Michelangelo's David?"

    "The resemblance is remarkable, isn't it? Undersold a few pieces though..." Joe says.

    "You knew frickin' Michaelangelo?" the host asks.

    "Biblically, right boys?" Andy smirks.

    *****

    Merrick managed to leak proof of The Old Guard's existence before he died. The world freaked out. To help quell the fears of billions, Nicky, Joe, Andy, and Nile agree to a series of interviews on BBC.

    Summary

    Andy is twenty-three years old and has heard of the Recurrence all of twice in her entire life. If she had heard of it more than that, she would still say it's bullshit. God isn't real, and there's no reason not to extend that same non-belief to every other religion. She's polite like that.

    She hears about it in passing. The last one came in the 1920s. The next is going to be soon.

    Bullshit, she thinks, pouring another shot.

    Or: Every ninety years, twelve gods return as young people. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are all dead. The year is 2019. It's happening now. It's happening again.
