    Summary

    And so it came to be that Earth’s first contact with intelligent alien life was not an invasion or some mysterious signal from the depths of space, but a plea for help and an offer of salvation.

    The Scythians come to Earth after a catastrophe destroys their planet and renders them effectively infertile. They need the humans and perhaps the humans need them as well.

    *Joe & Nicky are the main pairing, with the other couples in the background

    Summary

    Since being stranded here, I have concluded the following: 1. I’ve been in a dust storm for several sols. 2. Shit. I suppose I’ll just have to think of something. Or die. Nicky, my love wherever you are, remember how we always joked that I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew, and that I would only be 'in command' if I were the only one left?

    Well I'm in command now.
    (SUCK IT, NILE)

    Summary

    “I don’t need cheap tricks to beat you,” Joe yells – a bit too loud. There is usually press pretty close around. “Unlike you.” He lowers his voice slightly as he takes a step closer. “Anyway. We’re in the same fucking team. Maybe you could not sabotage me for once today.”

    “I see.” That fucking smug smirk is back again. “What’s in it for me, huh?”

    Nicky is leaning against the frame of the door, one hip cocked, an arm crooked over his head. He is the picture of nonchalance, as if they are not about to risk their fucking lives in a car going over 300 kilometres an hour. He’s wearing shorts and a T-shirt that seems a size too small. And he looks fucking – edible.

    Joe’s brain short-circuits. There is no other explanation for the words coming out of his mouth.

    “If you don’t drive me off the road, I will suck your dick afterwards.”

    ***

    Or, the one where rival drivers Joe and Nicky make an ill advised bet. Or is it the best move of their life?

    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

    Pain has an element of blank;
    It cannot recollect
    When it began, or if there were
    A day when it was not.

     

    It has no future but itself,
    Its infinite realms contain
    Its past, enlightened to perceive
    New periods of pain.

    - Emily Dickinson, "The Mystery of Pain"

    Stories demand to be told. Scars are the body's way of telling a story. But with immortal lives leading to pristine conditions, these stories must find somewhere else to be shared.

    Summary

    "Yeah, dating apps are garbage," Nile mutters, twirling her straw. "All surface, too many expectations."

    "Exactly." Joe pauses, casts his eyes across the plethora of patio goers in their vicinity. "Patience is a virtue, I guess."

    Quynh is still looking thoughtful. "You know," she says, "my girlfriend knows a lot of people in town. I'll ask if she might know someone for you."

    In which Joe isn't really sure what he wants, but he's hoping he'll know when he finds it.

    Spoiler: he does.

    Summary

    This is set about six months after the events of the movie and incorporates references to Recovery Time and Heart Piercing. It would help to read Heart Piercing. There's a summary below if you don't.

    In Heart Piercing:
    Quynh found Booker, who refused to tell her where she could find Andy. She tortured him, killed some cops who came knocking on the door, and set the apartment on fire to cover her tracks. Andy and group showed up to save him. Quynh found Andy and dealt her a lethal blow without knowing she was mortal. Quynh left as Andy was dying. The group arrived. A transfusion from Nile resulted in Andy healing. After a short discussion, the group decided to lift Booker's exile in the interest of protecting both him and the group from Quynh.

    Integration begins immediately after the last events of Heart Piercing. The group is at the Eiffel Tower Plaza and Booker has just promised Andy unconditional help and emotional support to pay the debt he owes the group (or at least her).

This is how they fall in love, fight to survive, and try to make a life in the worst of conditions.

    Summary

    “I am Nicolò,” the man said as he held the door for Yusuf to enter the church’s shaded coolness. 

    “Yusuf,” said Yusuf, though introductions felt like an afterthought. 

    “Why are you due at Capella Vèrde three days hence, Yusuf?” 

    “I am to have my head cut off by a Genovese man.” 

    When he said the same at home, it earned him a huff of worn good humor from his elders and a Happens to the best of us, al-Tayyib. We’re going to miss you. But Nicolò eyed him over his shoulder and mildly said, “I see.”
