    Summary

    It was a lovely, calm morning between missions. Breakfast had been leisurely and delicious. The back door was open to just the screen, left that way even after Joe and Andy had come in from puttering around the garden, smelling like sunshine and good dirt. Breeze and birdsong filled the main room where everyone was sprawled in the most comfortable, least ergonomic ways they could find across various chairs, the couch, the floor, and the one table capable of bearing human weight.

     

    Then there was a loud crack, more like a lightning strike than a gunshot, and there were suddenly twice as many people in the room—the six new arrivals falling directly into the laps of those already present.

    ~

    The Guard as we know them suddenly have their downtime derailed by their past selves—specifically, from the day they each came back to life for the first time. For some, it's a chance to reconnect with their own histories, for others it's a difficult reminder of their mistakes, for all it's quagmire of language barriers and phantom growing pains they're just going to have to deal with for as long as the situation lasts.

    Summary

    When the others left for the day they did 3 things wrong.

    One- They left Booker and a bored Nile alone together. (Trouble)
    Two- They forgot the house had a game room.
    Three- They underestimated just how competitive the younger immortals are with each other.

    This could only lead to one thing: A good old Fashioned game of Pool, Booker and Nile Style.

    It can only end in Nudity.

    Summary

    “You're really a star,” Andy feels the need to say, to ask, just to see if the words taste real.

    “I am. Nicky wouldn’t believe me at first.”

    Nicky blushes furiously, but he’s quick to say: “Of course I didn’t. It thought it was a terrible pick-up line.”

    Then, to Andy’s horror, Yusuf joins Nicky to quote: “Baby, I think I fell from the sky just to meet you.”

    Andy, who lost her brain to mouth filter after she quit acting, exclaims: “Oh my god, that is disgusting.”

    Nicky hides his face behind his hands, but Yusuf appears delighted by her comment. He laughs. The room is suddenly brighter, the air cleaner, the temperature rises by a few degrees. Andy, who hates space travels, thinks she can smell the ozone of space. Yusuf stops laughing, and the world tilts back to its normal axis, only now everything seems duller. The effect is so jarring, Andy doesn’t even know what to say.

    “Well, even if it was terrible, it worked.” Yusuf has the gall to wink

    Summary

    “I’m a freelancer,” Joe said, “I work as a sexual health educator, do some graphic design stuff and take art commissions. Booker and I both saw the flyers Andy and Quỳnh had put out for a social soccer team, and we ended up at tryouts on the same day.” Booker had shuffled onto the field as if he expected to be yelled at and chased away at any moment, Joe recalled. “It took him a while to open up, but we really bonded after a few weeks and now he’s one of my closest friends.”

    “Only a friend?” Nicky asked.

    “Only a friend,” Joe confirmed. “He’s dating Nile; I thought you knew that?”

    Nicky smiled, the lopsided angle impossibly winsome. “It doesn’t hurt to make sure.”

    Heartbroken after once again falling too hard, too fast, Joe swore off relationships for a full year, refocusing his energies on work, faith and friends. Nine months into his self-imposed dating ban, he meets Nicky. As they get to know each other, both on and off the soccer field, Joe must decide if the risk of falling back into old habits outweighs this chance at a happily ever after.

    Summary

    The Christian Frank—Nicolò—was handsome, in an unusual way. Yusuf could write poems upon poems about Nicolò and his bright eyes like the sea at a sunny Mediterranean beach, his reserved smiles, his nobly strong-featured profile, and his gentle and callused hands.

    But he didn’t say anything to Nicolò about his feelings. It was just a crush anyway, one of the fleeting bursts of affection and fascination he so often had for people, which always eventually faded.

    - Or, Joe is used to hyperfixating on crushes, so he assumes that is what’s happening with Nicky too. But he and Nicky keep accidentally kissing, and he feels terrible for leading Nicky on, but what if Nicky feels the same as he does?

    Summary

    Booker had mentioned they’d have an international guest training with them for a few weeks before the World Cup circuit begins, but he hadn’t specified who. Joe was not expecting Nicolò di Genova, the Italian biathlete with the startling eyes, and the competitor who he’d privately made it his mission to beat this year after landing one spot behind him in World Cup points last season.

    Joe is a biathlete on the Canadian national team, gunning for his second Olympic Games - and hot on the heels of Nicolò di Genova, the enigmatic, infuriating Italian biathlete who he just can't figure out.

    Summary

    podfic of sixthlight's story

     

    If you asked anybody in the castle right now, they’d say that Duke Nicolò did have a concubine, and his name was Yusuf al-Kaysani. Neither Yusuf nor the Duke had ever said so in so many words, of course, but it was understood. It was also untrue. The real story was much stranger.

    inspired by the tumblr post: fake relationship but its a king and his concubine that was once an amazing soldier but he couldn’t go up the ranks for whatever reason so the king was like listen. hear me out. you can be my strategy dude. u just gotta be okay w walking around shirtless a lot. and soldier dude is like man that’s an UPSIDE and yknow they end up falling in love.

    Summary

    In the centuries to come, what he remembers most clearly is how he thought, I’m either too drunk for this, or not drunk enough. There in his squalid Parisian flat, with his gun out and pointing at Quỳnh, of all people, all he could think was how completely and utterly incapable he was of addressing the situation.

    Or: Two wrongs don't make a right, but two deeply damaged people might make something vaguely resembling healing (if they can figure out how to tolerate each other).

    Summary

    Joe has been immortal for several months and can't complain too much. He and Nicky are living the good life on Malta--beautiful scenery, good food, plenty of sex, lots of time for his art. All of it is threatened, however, by Quynh's escape from the iron maiden, with Joe caught in the middle. But Nicky and the others are there, ready to see it through, and, hopefully, bring their family home once and for all.
