    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 learns that he is capable of more than observing and finds purpose along the way.

    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

    Like most things, it started off as a game; a game of love and desire and jealousy and the thrill they got from balancing on the border of it all, leaning to a side just enough to almost lose their footing before getting their balance back. But by now, the game had shifted and the number of participants had risen and the rules had become clearer: now it was a training. A course on how to.

     

    The gang shows off their seduction skills on each other to not get rusty in the game. Except they're all ridiculously good and not rusty at all. Some fluff thrown in there so it's not just all thirst. Chapters can be read separately.

    Summary

    He already knows how it feels to be struck by an arrowhead. How it feels to shudder out his final breaths as his bones crunch and his lungs fill with blood. Death is unavoidable. She teaches him about life.

    She teaches him that life, this life and all life, is a gift. It is not meant to be squandered, no matter that theirs will return.

    'You must never aim your weapon directly at those you wish to protect,' she says.

    'What if he has angered me,' he jokes.

    She hits him and he misses his target.

    --

    A study of Nicky and ranged weapons, from slingshots to sniper rifles.

    Summary

    She knows what the words mean, Nicolò translating them quietly next to her. She understands the shape of the letters and the cadence of his voice. But she cannot fit them together.

    ‘It’s very common in the aftermath of trauma…’

     

    She is death and violence and pain. She has split bone and rent flesh. Armies bowed at her feet. She is… she is... she was-

     

    The man smiles, trying to reassure. His hair is dusted with grey and lines deepen along his lips. He is a child. Yusuf’s thumb presses along her wrist, rubbing along her pulse.

    ‘...it can be a grieving process…’

    (or Quynh comes back from the ocean, gets therapy and love from her family)

    Summary

    Nicky always knew his crush on fellow superhero Joe Al-Kaysani, aka Solar Flare, would never come to anything. His identity was a closely guarded secret while Joe's was the exact opposite. That wasn't going to change, no matter how much he secretly wished it could.

    But then his best friend Quynh sets him up on a blind date...with Joe. Suddenly, on top of a game of dating and hidden identities, Nicky has to deal with an influx of weapons into the community and some odd occurences at his day job.

    Life is never dull when operating as a semi-illegal vigilante.
