    Summary

    The Old Guard take a job as a favour to Copley, a simple data extraction. Joe is tasked with leveraging the target's niece Isabella to gain access to the info.

    But when this orphaned 22 year old student rises as the newest immortal with absolutely no skills for a life in this team, it's up to Joe and Nicky to get her combat ready.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    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

    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 gradually learns that he is capable of more than observing.

    Summary

    "We have a problem,"
    Copley started making his way into the living room where they had all draped themselves onto his couches upon their arrival to his house.
    "Don't we always."
    Andy droned from her place on Quynh's lap getting a wicked little smile from her beloved and a poke in the side from Nile.
    "what's up Copley?"
    Nile asked kindly from her spot on the floor against Quynh's legs looking up at the man pacing in front of the group where his old serial killer boards on all of them had been cleared years ago. He swallowed nervously.
    "I can't find booker."

    Summary

    They fall together, curled around each other’s figures, blood pouring out around them, until it becomes impossible to tell whose it belonged to. The fight continues on around their lifeless bodies while the sun burns and the city walls bear witness. What’s two more lives lost? What did their deaths mean? A better question: what did it take?

    Night falls like a hush, washing over the fallen. Outside the wall is still and quiet. And then it isn’t.

    Nicolo di Genova is dead. And then he isn’t.

    Summary

    “…This is what he likes, isn’t it?”

    Joe nods, still staring at the screen like a man possessed. “I don’t understand it, but this is what Booker needs,” he whispers, scrubbing at his tired eyes with his fingertips. “This is what he needs and he keeps ending up in the hospital because he doesn’t have anyone who will do it the way he deserves.” There’s a sharp edge of determination in his husband’s voice that Nicky can’t ignore and Joe’s eyes burn a little with passion when he finally looks at Nicky. “We need to do something.”

    Nicky lets out a heavy breath and slips a hand over the older man’s thigh. “Do you think it has to be us?”

    “I don’t know. Maybe.”

    After picking Booker up from the emergency room for the third time in four months, Joe and Nicky stage an intervention of sorts. The ultimatum: the next time Booker needs whatever he needs, he has to come to Joe. Nicky knows that this is the only way it can be—the only way to move forward safely—but something in the back of his mind tells him that they're going to get a lot more than they signed up for.

    Summary

    “Do you feel any remorse for what you’ve done?” Nicolò spat in his accented Arabic, the words heavy on his tongue. The bandits quieted down. In his anger, Nicolò could not move. A searing pain suddenly erupted in his left shoulder. Nicolò could hear his heart thumping in his ears, his head starting to feel foggy. Time seemed to slow, almost to a halt. It took him a few moments to understand that the scalding liquid he felt dripping down his arm and chest was his own blood. The flames flickered higher and brighter, the light momentarily blinding him, his pupils contracting . Yusuf liked to say the light reflecting in his eyes reminded him of seaglass under candlelight.

    Yusuf.

    He hadn’t woken up. For the first time, Nicolò hadn’t killed him and Yusuf had not woken up.

    --or--

    Joe is killed by someone other than Nicky for the first time. Nicky goes feral.

    Summary

    Inspired by A Star is Born (2018) but with different angst and a much happier ending.

    Reports confirm long-time bachelor and music icon Joe Al-Kaysani skipped his band’s legendary afterparty last night in favor of returning to his hotel with his new love interest, Nicolò “Nicky” di Genova. The two were spotted both before and after the show, with those close to Al-Kaysani speculating he may have finally found “the one”. Could this be love? Did last night’s performance mark the coronation of music royalty’s newest couple? Could Kaysanova be the dawn of a new era? Industry insiders seem to think so.

    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

    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.
