    Summary

    “I wanted a choice.” His hand lingers on her diaphragm, steadying her furious, heaving breaths, and there’s nothing but defeat left in him as he says, “I wanted a choice for you and me, Andy. For us to move past all this fucking violence if we wanted to.”

    Andy scoffs, and winces as Booker moves lower, closer to her wound. “And do what?”

    “You really don’t remember, do you?”

    When Andy finds out the truth behind Booker’s betrayal, it makes her take stock of the past she’s left behind and the legacy ahead of her. She has a choice to make—one that becomes even more difficult when she comes face to face with Quynh again, and finds Booker tortured by her hand. A choice between living life between cycles of violence or carving out some semblance of normalcy.

    Andy has left her mark on countless lives across the millennia, but the thought of leaving a bit of herself behind scares the shit out of her.

    Summary


    In hindsight, Joe knew he should’ve left it alone. He knew that whatever was the reason for the green-eyed teen’s small cries in the school boy’s locker room, it wasn’t any of his business. He was a gym teacher, not the school counselor, for fuck’s sake. But, he still was a teacher, and a student was in distress, so he felt like he needed to do something about it. The fact that the teen was Nicolò Di Genova, with his big, red-rimmed eyes, tear-streaked face, and the pinkest lips Joe had ever seen, had nothing to do with it.

    Joe should’ve turned around though, he knew he should’ve.

    Or, the one where Joe is a gym teacher and Nicky is his student.

    Summary

    "He's not breathing!" Joe screams, rocking the lifeless Nicky back and forth and Nile has to support herself on the wrecked car, gasping helplessly into the phone. At the other end Copley slowly starts to figure out what happened through Joe's desperate shouts.

    -*-

    The aftermath: The team has lost its heart. Deeply hit by the great loss, the found family struggles to keep going. But before they can entirely go down under the emotional pain their heart, from which they feared to have lost it forever, starts beating again. Now it's time to come to terms with the past events, renew their bonds and keep in mind that family is always there.

    A story about family strength, a love older than time itself and the process of healing even if it seems impossible.

    Summary

    “Why?”

    He hears Dr. Copley stumble to a halt. “Why what, Nicky?”

    “Why did you…” He pauses, trying to find the words. He thinks of the newest resident in the hospital, the man with the wild curls and the sparks behind his eyes. He thinks of the way the man had moved like a dancer, the way his lips had snarled beneath that full beard. The way he’d fought and fought and fought. And the way they’d put him down. “Why did you put the fire out?”

    Dr. Copley takes a while to answer. “Fires are dangerous,” he says slowly.

    Nicky frowns. “Only if you’re afraid,” he whispers. He turns, tilting his head. “Are you afraid, Dr. Copley?”


    Yusuf al-Kaysani has had many names. He’s lived more lives and has seen more sunrises than any other man. He’s outlived languages, seen the rise and fall of civilizations, and has walked beside death, always one step ahead. He knows who he is.

    However, after waking up in an unknown facility in London, Joe is forced to question his entire existence. What had started as a poorly constructed nightmare now weaves thick tendrils through his thoughts, suffocating him until he can’t even trust his own mind.

    He knows who he is.

    But what if he doesn’t?

    Summary

    "Nicky is making himself a coffee, bleary-eyed from a fitful sleep, and trying to recall if Joe is drinking it this decade, and if he is then does he take it with sugar?, and he’s also thinking about The Odyssey, which is sitting in amongst a pile of books in the next room.

    He’s thinking about a question written in the margins, scrawled in Booker’s handwriting: how long does it take for a man to return from war? Does he ever return, can he ever return, what does it mean to return home, when home is not home and he is no longer the same man?"

     

    After Merrick, Nicky's right shoulder starts hurting, and it doesn't stop.

    Summary

    Joe’s face scrunches up in annoyance as he stares up at the sign. “Do we really have to do this?” he asks, unable to hide the disgruntled tone in his voice.

    Nicky rolls his eyes and shoves his fiancé through the doors that read ‘Sanremo Dance Hall’. “Yes, we have to do this. I will not sit there on our wedding day and listen to half your family and mine make snide comments behind our backs because one of us can’t dance.”

    A month out from their wedding, Nicky signs himself and his unenthusiastic fiancé Joe for private dance lessons in an effort to wow their families with a spectacular First Dance. However, neither of them expect to be paired up with Sébastien “Call me Booker, please,” Le Livre for the next three weeks.

    Will they be able to weather unexpected crushes, jealousy, and a heavy dose of misunderstanding to make it down the aisle without a hitch?

    Summary

    Nicky finds out he’s pregnant two hours before they leave for South Sudan.

    For centuries alphas and omegas were persecuted until they became a relic of the past. In the present, Joe and Nicky are taken by Merrick and soon their captors will find out that immortality is not the only thing unique about them.

    Or; the events of the movie, but omegaverse (with a twist).

    Summary

    “I do not mean to pry, but-” Yusuf scratches his beard, trying to find the right words. “Forgive me for being blunt, but is there a chance you are entering your heat?”

    Yusuf has expected Nicolò to scold him, for he knows that is too intimate a question. Definitely not one a former enemy turned travelling companion should even consider voicing aloud. He has truly been prepared for the omega to draw his sword and defend his honour. Yusuf has not expected Nicolò to shake his head and to look up with sympathy on his face.

    “I have not had a single heat since I almost starved outside of Antioch’s walls. My body seems to have thought then it was more important to keep me alive than to make me fit for breeding.” Nicolò’s voice is quiet, but Yusuf cannot help feeling his own face going hot at those words. “But you, my alpha friend, I am afraid you are going into a rut... and it is going to happen soon.”

    In a world where alphas and omegas are seen as pariahs by the rest of society, Yusuf finds an unlikely ally in the person who has killed him at Jerusalem.

    A prequel of Wistful is the rain.

    Summary

    At such moments, he curses Nicky's practice of always putting his own well-being below that of others. “I will always be concerned when it comes to you. And there is nothing you can do about it because you are my heart, Nicolo.” And you cannot survive without a heart. "I just want you to promise me something."

    -*-

    A fine justification. I've heard it so many times before – Displeased by Nicky's words Kozak injects him with a substance which doesn't take full effect until a few weeks after Merrick. And suddenly the team is playing against time because Nicky is getting worse. They have to fight with all their might in order to prevent them from losing their heart forever.

     

    A story about endless love, found family and trusting in fate when all hope seems lost.

    Summary

    Nicolò Di Genova is home for the summer after he graduated college - except, things are tense and strange. His Dad, a big shot lawyer who works for Merrick Enterprises, has hired extra security, and seems a bit miffed he came home for the summer instead of touring Europe like he had wanted him, too. But Nicky was just trying to spend his summer in the pool while he works some things out . . .

    Joe is hired as extra security to watch over a guy who knows nothing about life (or so he thinks). This is his last job, and then he’s done - he’s out, and can just focus on what he needs to do next. But what was supposed to be an easy job of watching a rich kid sunbathing while his Dad coordinates his grand jury testimony with the DEA, turns into something much more dangerous. It’s not just Nicky’s Dad who is in danger - it’s Nicky, too.

    Because someone has decided he wants him all to himself . . . and it’s not just Joe.

    Summary

    "Joe," Nicky said, closing his eyes to rally himself. "I don't need sunscreen."

    Joe ignored him, as he usually did when the discussion of sun protection came up, sorting through his various purchases. They'd landed in Split several hours earlier, and his husband had disappeared soon after they'd made it to their AirBnB. Nile had gone with him, wanting to explore the ancient city, while he and Andy had stayed behind. They'd returned in less than an hour, Nile giggling uproariously, while Joe had been pouting ever so slightly in her direction.

    He sighed when he saw the next item Joe took out of his shopping bag. "I certainly don't need aloe vera," he told him, somewhat testily.

    Joe doesn’t like seeing Nicky in pain, even when it’s just with a minor sunburn that will immediately heal. Nicky despises sunscreen. Andy and Nile are just watching the show.
