    Summary

    Quynh goes to sleep in a capsule hotel, and she only just resists the impulse not to jerk upright when she wakes from the nightmare. In it, a girl who is not Quynh has her throat slit open, but Quynh feels every moment of agony as she drowns in her own blood anyway. Feel every moment of terror and pain and final, reluctant acceptance as the rest of the girl’s blood leaks out onto the hard-packed dirt floor that’s covered in desert sand.

     

    Not now, she pleads, and she doesn’t scream only because then she will wake those around her and attract attention she does not need. I can’t help her now.

     

    -

    An AU where Quynh was never lost in the ocean, but the rest of the team were taken by Merrick before Nile's first death.

    Summary

    For a multi-millionaire partner at a private equity firm, Sébastien Lelivre looks incredibly unsure of himself. That doesn’t bode well for someone who wants to be her sugar daddy.

    He doesn’t want to call it that, Nile thinks. He said it was a mutually beneficial companionship. And he wants me to call him Booker.

    It's summer in New York, and Nile wants an adventure. Booker offers that— and so much more.

    Summary

    FOR THE THE OLD GUARD REVERSE BANG 2022! Decades after meeting him for the first time, Nile’s still unsure about how she feels about Booker.

And Nile swears that she’ll do whatever it takes to get him back, even if it takes her years and years — even if it means having to cross the vast gulf between the stars — one day at a time.

    Summary

    “Are you okay?” said Seb, when they had all sat down. The night was black and noiseless and it sat like a blanket over the five of them.

    Nile was quiet as she drew her knees up to her chest against the cold. “Not really,” she admitted.

    The fireworks were gorgeous. They’d bought a lot of red and gold, and they trailed down together over and over again to fizzle out against the huge backdrop of the open sky. When she shut her eyes she could see them light up the darkness through her closed eyelids.

    “I was never meant to live this long,” she said, voice tucked like a secret under the noise. “I was never supposed to see this. You get me?”

    “I do. I’m sorry.”

    Nile turned to him and tilted her head. “You’re the best thing about my life, you know,” she said. “All of you.” She glanced at her watch, and back up at the stars. It had gone midnight. She’d been six years old this time a hundred years ago, staring up at the sky.

     

    Or: A perspective on nearly a hundred years of friendship and change, and what that does to a person.

    Summary

    Nicolò di Genova and Yusuf al-Kaysani. Star-crossed lovers hit by the terrible curse of never being able to be together as Nicolò would turn into a hawk during the day and Yusuf into a wolf at night. They could only ever see each other in human form at the first light of dawn at and at the last ray of sunset.

    Upon hearing this story, Nile Freeman could only reach one conclusion: she was going to help them break the curse, whatever it would take.

    Summary

    "Getting tired against nightmares?"

     

    "As good a strategy as any," she answers, cracking her neck before standing up. Her new jeans are stretchy, comfortable, and exactly her size. She wonders who bought them, and the jewel green jacket.

    Booker stretches as she wanders around a little, waiting for the dream to fade. Suddenly he chuckles to himself, scratching the side of his nose.

    "What's so funny?"

    "It's, hm," he looks up, still smiling, and… stops. Clears his throat. Weird, she thinks. "It's a little inappropriate."

    alternatively "something that could've happened in the cave."

    EDIT: also alternatively "booker and nile fall into bed together in moments of stress."

    Summary

    “You’re in my dreams,” Nile says.

    Once, she would have balked at saying something so bizarre, but the last few months have changed her. Truths she used to know have crumbled; rights and dignities she used to have were torn from her. Survival is what’s left, and knowledge is power.

    “Tell me why.”

    Summary

    These supernatural bonds drawing them together, drawing all of them together; she guessed they were necessary, given everything. And now one of those bonds was going to be frayed. Soon Andy’s would be cut. Nile couldn’t help but feel like she’d come in at the second to last chapter.

    Nile successfully argues for the benefits of apology and, eventually, grants a little mercy to herself, too.

    Summary

    “Hey, when did you learn to read?” she said, because asking questions it would never previously have occurred to her to ask another human being was now completely normal.

    “Who are you asking?” Joe said.

    “Uh, all of you, I guess.”

    Nile has lots of questions. Sometimes she regrets asking them. Sometimes she doesn't.
