    Summary

    "So," the one named Andromache said through a mouthful of bread. "Do you know where the other one is?"

    - - -

    By the time the women find Yusuf, long after his first death at the gates of Jerusalem, the fourth living immortal has disappeared from their sights. They aren't too worried; they have lifetimes to find him again. But that's before they find him at the mercy of a powerful sadist. Faced with something more beast than man, Yusuf struggles to reconcile the invader who killed him with the frightened prisoner before him.

    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’s had a crush on his co-worker for longer than he’d like to admit, but he can never seem to work up the courage to ask Nicky out.

    Of course, when forced into the same room with one (1) bed during a work trip, Joe might finally have an opportunity to make all his dreams come true… if he doesn’t die of embarrassment first.

    Summary

    Joe's life wasn't exactly great and then to wake up and learn he's now immortal? That's going to take some getting used to.

    Fortunately, his new family is there to guide him through it. During Joe's first week as an immortal, he: takes a strange road trip across Europe, learns to fight, helps take down a pharmaceutical CEO, comes to terms with his place in the world, and falls in love. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Yusuf hopes to the high heavens and back he hasn’t killed his future husband. He can’t even begin to think how disappointed his parents would be.

    “Nicolò?” A loud whine. “Nicolò, I need you to say something.” He inches closer, coming around the bed. “Please, just one word.”

    The lump under the blankets is much larger than it should be. Wide and tall, much broader and longer than Nicolò. What the fuck was that spell?

    Nicolò moves, the noises he’s making confuse Yusuf and he’s scared he’s killing the prince, and he always seems to make mistakes, and now Nicolò is towering over him by several inches, when he should be only an inch shorter. The blanket slips, and Yusuf is staring at a brown, fuzzy head. With two ears. On the top of its head.

    The bear turns around, unsteady on its feet, and Yusuf screams.

    Summary

    “What is it, my love?”

    Nicky had heard the distinctive, almost aggressive smashing of glass from the other room and immediately come running into the kitchen before Andy or Nile could even rise from their seats.

    “The damn thing fell on the floor,” Joe grumbled, his shoulders tense, jaw set as it had been for days, stubbornly turned away from the Italian.

    Nicky surveyed the broken glass with some scepticism. If it had fallen, it was with some force and quite some distance from where Joe was stood, drying the rest of the dishes.

    ***

    Joe's not okay. He might not be okay for a while. But grief is grief, and traditionally there are 5 stages to go through...

    Summary

    When Nicolo was younger - much younger, or perhaps just less war-worn - he was often told he had a face of an angel. He wondered now, as he did many times before, if that trait was somehow instrumental to his destiny in priesthood, and thus to his becoming what he now was…

    If he had a face of an angel, then the eyes across from him had to be the eyes of some vengeful god. It had to mean something… He dreamt of those eyes ever since he arrived into this strange, ruthless land - the holiest land. Those eyes must’ve been a premonition, or perhaps a catalyst in their own right…

    Summary

    “I just—” Joe settles into bed, curling into Nicky’s side like he does every night. “I just wish—”

    How? How can he say that he wishes it were as easy as a condom breaking, a mistake between two teenagers, or as easy as a husband impregnating his wife— something done four times with ease— and not sound like a cruel, jealous, petty man?

    “I wish I could give this to you,” Joe says finally, his voice soft.

    Joe and Nicky have been trying to adopt for nearly a decade without success. With the impending arrival of a new addition, Joe— hurt, frustrated, adrift— learns that love, hope, healing— family— doesn't always happen according to plan.

    Summary

    It is their first summer. Augusta Di Genova is still alive. Nicolò is slightly shorter than Quỳnh, but he’s growing fast like a plant in a hurry. Andy hasn’t met Sebastien Le Livre yet. They’re young and maybe a bit crazy. Yusuf is scared for his best friend.

    Yusuf wants Nicky to be safe.

    Before closing his eyes and entering the ley line, Yusuf looks at Nicky. Nicky is looking back.

    His eyes are green, Yusuf decides. They’re beautiful, he realises for the first time.

    Whatever happens, I love you

    ***

    Three years ago, Yusuf helped him run away, at the cost of breaking the beautiful thing they had, the magic tying the four of them together. Now, Nicky is here to stay, and he finds that everything is different. He can't feel Yusuf's laugh in the Bond anymore, that playful burst of green and yellow he has always associated with him, but he can hear it. Yusuf is somewhere in Andy's house, and he's laughing. It is the final push he needs to have the strength to knock on the door and let himself believe he's finally back home.

    Summary

    There's a man standing in front of his table, a sheepish cant to his shoulders. His lovely, blonde-brown hair looks in need of a haircut since it's growing out somewhat unevenly, presently just long enough to hang partially in his eyes. His eyes are the most intriguing shade between clear blue and crisp green. He has a beauty mark near his mouth, a definitely Roman-looking nose, and enough scruff on his chin that Joe's not sure if he's trying to grow out his beard or just hasn't bothered to shave.

    He's fucking gorgeous, is what Joe is trying to say.

     

     

    (The past year hasn't been kind to Joe or Nicky. But a chance meeting at a local market sets them both on a path they weren't expecting. A path filled with love, magic and maybe, just maybe, some peace.)

    Summary

    Yusuf gasps. “What a scoundrel you’ve become, Nicky.”

    “Scoundrel!” Nicky’s eyes flare with offense. 

    Yusuf stifles a grin and continues, “Planet-hopping like some vigilante, with your disruptor rifle.”

    “You don’t like the rifle.” Nicky’s gaze turns despondent. 

    He likes how Nicky used it. “It’s very illegal.”

    “Under Imperial law,” Andy says over her shoulder. 

    “Even autocratic regimes have good laws now and then.” Yusuf leans closer to Nicky and says in a conspiratorial undertone, “I introduced that legislation.” 

    The smile playing on Nicky’s lips makes Yusuf feel like he’s at the center of a trap that’s about to be sprung. It’s a shame they don’t have time for anything else; Yusuf would like to get nice and close to that smile, to see it from all angles, to kiss its corners. Did he ever truly have delusions of resisting the way this man acts on his heart like the gravitational pull of a moon?

    Nicky says, “Then, from a certain point of view, you are the one who made me an outlaw and a scoundrel.”

    To hell with words. When Yusuf gets him alone in one of the rooms waiting for them, he’s going to show Nicky everything he means to him.
