    Summary

    Nile Freeman is working her way up in King Merrick's army. She's dedicated, highly skilled, and determined. All she needs to do is get rid of this stubborn headache, ignore the whispers in her mind, and impress Commander Keane.

    She doesn't, of course, expect to die. And she most definitely does not expect to wake back up.

    Summary

    You belong, with conditions. You belong, until your presence is inconvenient to everyone else. You belong and then… you don’t.

    Summary

    He chuckled. “Did your family ever win?”
    “Oh hell yeah. My mom and I made these fancy chocolate Christmas tree cookies one year and absolutely destroyed the competition. One year we did gingerbread men, I think another time my dad and I made snowflake cookies. December was just a month of solid baking which I guess is why I’ve always enjoyed doing it.”
    “That sounds nice.”
    She nodded, the ache in her chest making a reappearance. “It was,” she said quietly, her fingers going to her cross necklace out of habit.

    in which Nile misses the way Christmas used to be, Booker makes an emergency candy run, and the team pulls off a surprise gingerbread house competition for the history books.

    Summary

    Nile Freeman woke up from death to find herself in a new world. New rules, new possibilities. New fears. And so much time, more time than she can even imagine, let alone plan for. What does she want to do — who does she want to be?

    Turns out she's about to be living in the same city as another immortal considering the same questions as he rebuilds his life from the ashes of trauma and his own terrible decisions.

    Or, I just really need Booker to read Edward Said and Gloria Anzaldúa and then go down on Nile, ok?

    Summary

    Nile Freeman dies, joins an ancient squadron of immortal warriors, dies again, lives, and tumbles head over combat boots into love with a fallen goddess who has funeral pyres for eyes, but maybe not in that order.

     

    Alternatively: Andy was waiting to die, and Nile—well. Nile was just waiting on her.

    Summary

    “My oath,” Andy says, uncapping the bottle.

    Nile sits up straighter, hands on her knees. Whatever this is, much like the mine, it goes back a long way.

    “Upon my final death, I bequeath Andronika to Nile Freeman, to donate to whichsoever institution--”

    “The Art Institute of Chicago.”

    “To the Art Institute of Chicago,” Andy echoes, “so that my breasts may be culturally appreciated in perpetuity.”

    She tips the bottle and lets out three drops. As they fall to the stone floor, Joe and Nicky rap their knuckles on the nearest pieces of metal: the other lantern for Nicky, the oxidized helmet for Joe. One rap for each drop. In another time, they might have struck their swords on shields.

    Summary

    Nile Freeman escaped Battery City with a blaster and half of her wits leftover, and now that she's in the Zones, she has no idea what she's doing. Lucky for her, a small group of Killjoys keeps an eye on the cameras outside Battery City to watch for new recruits and help them through their first couple days in the Zones.

    Summary

    So consumed was Nile with imagining the sun glinting on clean new steel, that her ear missed the sound of trudging from behind her. Quite suddenly, they were outstripped, and the bright horizon now included a head of curling black hair above a pair of bare brown shoulders, peeling from sunburn.

    “Morning,” said a cheerful voice. A naked man patted the neck of Andy’s horse, and soldiered on.

    Summary

    Nile reveals that she's Aromantic Asexual to the team and Booker learns a new thing.

    ===

    "I liked stories about romance because I liked stories about people. But it was never something I saw for myself. It wasn't something I wanted," Nile explains, watching Booker appear struck by her description. He looks away from her, down to his hands where his book is splayed open.

    Summary

    Nile has had it. She’s tired and she’s telegraphing her moves and she’s done caring. There is nothing that matters except beating her. She crowds up to Andy and swings for her face; Andy leans out of range. Nile puts everything she’s got into the backstroke, and Andy raises her stick to block with her hands set wide.

    It snaps in half.

    That doesn't count as a point, but damn if it doesn’t feel great anyway.

    Andy steps back, staring at the two halves. Nile puts the tip of her stick under Andy’s chin. That’s a point.

    There’s something new and electric in Andy’s eyes. She nods, as if to the beat of a song Nile can’t hear, and tosses the broken pieces away.
