    Summary

    — Don't worry, it happens a lot when people meet me for the first time.

    Yusuf looks up, slaps the stranger's hand away and tries to stand up for himself, but one of the man’s arms is already around his waist helping him find balance. He is glad, otherwise he would probably be on the ground again.

    — I fell because you slammed a door on my face, you pretentious little shit.

     

    (Nicolo di Genova is a famous singer that everyone is absolutely obsessed with, including Yusuf's sister. Yusuf can't hear about him anymore until one day destiny decides to interfere).

    Summary

    Inspired by the gorgeous and very inspirational art work - see link in notes below - I also used their dialog in selected scenes.

    I went more with the art work as inspiration than the original kink meme prompt.

    Nicolo is falsely accused and placed in a pillory to be degraded and abused before being handed back to Yusuf. Yusuf takes Nicolo to a nearby river so he can wash.

    +10 If Yusuf helps Nicolo wash
    +100 If they haven't been together sexually before then
    +1000 If it leads to them getting together

    If sex between Yusuf and Nicolo, top!Yusuf only, please

    Summary

    “Are you alright?” Nicky continues, and it’s abrupt, forced, and Lykon grips the phone tighter.

    “Yes, I am—Nicky—”

    “Well, I’m glad we got that clear. I’m happy you’re well. Please talk to Quynh,” Nicky says, and then he’s just hanging up, and yeah, Lykon screwed up.

    Nicky and Quynh have every right to be pissed at him.

    “Lykon?”

    He looks up and blinks when he finds Andy and Joe, already ready to leave, Lykon’s own jacket in Joe’s hand. Lykon shakes his head then and smiles, taking the jacket from Joe.

    Andy raises an eyebrow then, while Joe waves his hand, motioning aimlessly.

    “Are we sharing, Lykon? Who was that?” he asks, and Lykon sighs.

    ***

    or the mutual-pining story between the most important people in Lykon’s life, because he dealt with the pain of missing Andy and Joe by never talking about them with his best friends Quynh and Nicky, and vice-versa. not in the last 10 years.

    then Andy and Joe come back home and they all meet for the first time. so what do you do, when someone you love very much keeps you in the dark from others he holds dear? how are you meant to feel?

    on top of possibly, maybe, falling in love?

    Summary

    “Yes.” Yusuf swiped at his face again, “Yes I -- merciful Allah, Nicolo, I thought it would be different with you; I love you, why can’t I just-”

    “I love you too,” Nicolo said patiently, “but you’re scaring me.”

    Summary

    Fill for a post over on The Old Guard Kink meme asking for Andromache and Quynh to instruct Yusuf and Nicolo on how to make love. (https://theoldguardkinkmeme.dreamwidth.org/5194.html?thread=1609802#cmt1609802)

    Our boys are in love but haven't progressed beyond poetry and the occasional kiss. Mainly because Nicolo doesn't have any experience, while Yusuf, on the other hand, has seen and heard just enough to make him worry.

    Summary

    The sand feels like it’s burrowed underneath Nicolò’s skin, behind his eyes, under his tongue. The air is desolate, drowsy and throbbing, distorting the horizon. The sun is a blunt shape, too bright to look upon, like Yusuf-

    They’re eye to eye now, dark blown irises meeting each other in a long moment that’s hanging in the cradle of something greater, approaching a new beginning.

    Summary

    Attention, taken to its highest degree, is the same thing as prayer. It presupposes faith and love.

    Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer.

    - Simone Weil

    Written for this Kink Meme prompt: Nicky's normally reserved and a man of few words most of the time, but whenever he and Joe get the chance to slow down and make love, Nicky's inner poet comes out. A pure mix between wholesome and erotic.

    Summary

    “Eggplant!"
    Nicky immediately stops, his green eyes blink owlishly from beneath his baggy fringe. “Tesoro?”
    “Okay, don’t laugh--”
    “Never, hayati,” Nicky swears, serious. Joe will tell him what’s wrong in his own words and at his own pace, Nicky must be patient.
    ---
    Joe can be fussy, but that doesn't stop Nicky from loving him completely.

    Summary

    With a watery smile, Joe told her about the crusades and their many happy years together. He spoke of his Nicky’s kindness, his spirit. As his voice trailed off, Andy stepped in to explain the ‘44 mission, the Alps, the train, the explosion, the twisted sword they found in the rubble. Booker sat quietly. They were leaving out a few parts, he knew. Joe wading through the snow and ash for days, losing thirteen fingers and succumbing to hypothermia five times before they could finally tear his tired body away from the wreckage. Joe’s despair, anger, and grief. The years Andy and Booker spent occasionally checking up on Joe as he made his pilgrimage: Jeaureslum, Genoa, Tunis, Hanoi, Paris, Cuba, San Francisco, Malta. They didn’t tell Nile that the longsword Joe carries on his hip was reforged by Italian blacksmiths in the ‘70s.

    The team believes they lost Nicky 70 years ago, but Nile’s dreams tell a different story.

    Summary

    Because it’s only been nearly a year, and Nicky's yearned for the man for longer, way before they got together. And even with all the odds, with all the numbers combined, Nicky doesn’t believe that there’ll be enough time that can pass to heal the pain that’s clawing on his chest at that moment. That has been since Yusuf said it was over.

    Nile’s legs move from his lap, and suddenly there are arms around him, pulling him close and Nicky closes his eyes, pressing his face on Nile’s neck.

    “You’re allowed to hurt as long as you have to, Nicky,” Nile says to him, and it’s so, so kind. “You can tell me as much or as little as you can. I didn’t mean to push.”

    “I still love him,” he croaks out, like it needed to be heard, like his desperation is a call out for his heart. His heart that let him go, that told him that it’s over.

    ***

    or the one where Nicky is housemates with Nile after Yusuf breaks up with him. And when he finally opens up about it, Nicky realizes that his current predicament was brought on by misunderstandings and good intentions with ill results. But it’s too late. It’s been nearly a year; it doesn’t matter now.

    Right?

    Not if your housemate is Nile Freeman.

    Summary

    The sound of scratching charcoal on canvas paper fills the room, creating a rhythm that helps relax Nicolo's shaking thighs and his on-edge body; Nicolo had been stripped with precise and gentle hands only worn that of his lover's digits, stripped and tied and kissed until his lips swelled and healed then swelled again.
