    Summary

    So for some reason I thought it would be fun to re-tell The Old Guard (film) as a rhyming poem- Revolting Rhymes Style.But it’s quite hard and I have no idea if anyone but me will want it.

     

    Excerpt:
    Gather round please and I’ll tell you a story.
    I’ll warn you up front that it gets kind of gory!
    (And for no reason that’s clear at this time
    It’s also written completely in rhyme.)
    Now there is a fact you all need to know
    And when you hear it you’re bound to yell no!
    But this is the truth, no word of a lie
    The folk in this story just simply can’t die.

    Summary

    Lord Nicolò di Genova visits Tunis for the Sultana's birthday. He meets her son, Prince Yusuf, and what was meant to be a little mutual enjoyment... well. Nicolò did not intend to lose his heart in Tunis, and is he the right person to stand at the Prince's side?
    (Yusuf very much thinks so. To convince Nicolò of that, though...)

    Summary

    Nicky hadn't meant to fall asleep in his office. He also hadn't meant to catch someone in the act of stealing from the museum where he works.
    And he really, really hadn't meant to help the thief.
    Sometimes, though, the unexpected happens.

    or, indiana jones-inspired au in which nicky looks at a gang of literal art thieves and thinks "they seem cool i'll join them". shenanigans ensue.

    Summary

    Nicolò diGenova was a man training to be a priest, his life laid out before him, before he killed a man and ended up in Old Guard Prison, sentenced to 80 years, where the prisoners and guards are waiting to tear him apart. This is his punishment and he is not afraid to face it. This is where he expects to live out the rest of his life in penance. What he isn't expecting is Yusuf "Joe" Al-Kaysani, a fellow prisoner in for grand larceny, and the crashing of their two orbits. As Nicky fights to survive and Joe struggles not to feel anything for the former priest-turned convicted killer, they may find solace and purpose in each other. This is how they fall in love, fight to survive, and try to make a life in the worst of conditions.

    Summary

    Andy told Nile she leads a team with two other immortals, but there are four people waiting at the safe house.

    Joe was born in 1986, Nicky in 1989. They were meant to die as children, but Booker, Andy and Quýnh saved them, took them in and gave them a family and a future.
    It couldn't be forever, they all knew it... but it wasn't supposed to end in Goussainville, in blood and a hail of bullets.

    Somebody wanted to get at them, at their immortality and didn't care if Joe and Nicky died... Big mistake. Whoever they are, it's the last one they'll ever make.

    Summary

    “You’re still in this shitty game with me. You hear me? You wake up.”

    There's a fire burning its way through his guts and his first thoughts through the thick darkness surrounding his thoughts are: Maybe this is hell. Andy's voice and flames. Sounds about right.

    Booker wakes to Andy's head butting against his.

    The calluses on her fingers drag over the scorched, healing skin at the back of his neck.

    Again.

    Summary

    The problem with doing laundry in university accommodation, Nicolò muses as he shifts his blue plastic laundry basket ( thank you, IKEA ) a little higher onto his hip after feeling his fingers slip from the sheer weight of the pile of clothes contained therein, is that nobody ever remembers to take their wet clothes out of one of the machines when somebody else needs one.

    The other problem, of course, is that there only ever seems to be three working washing machines out of the ten provided.

    Summary

    “Nicolo would never risk the fates of children over his own.”

    “And look where that got him!” Andy roars, her throat burning with a desperate rage that has nothing to do with the pills, and right there, in that precise moment, she watches, devastated, as the words carve ruin into Joe’s grief-stricken face.

    She hears the tiny intake of Booker’s breath, sees the even tinier lift of his shoulders towards his ears.

    Summary

    "Don't 'tesoro' me. No more bullshit games, Joe. All cards on the table." Nicky's eyes are impossibly wide and brighter than Joe can ever remember them being. "Tell me what's going on."

    Joe just stares at him, at this man he is inexplicably and almost dangerously in love with, who he is most certain he would die for, and wonders how he can possibly answer without losing him.

    .

    Renowned art dealer Joe Jones meets quiet art restorer Nicolò Genova at a gala, and they take things from there. But as Joe's mysterious past begins to come to light, he scrambles to do what he can to protect the love of his life, who also seems to be a magnet for trouble.

    Summary

    Anger welled up in him and he hit the washbasin. This bastard should pay for hurting him. Stabbing him wasn’t enough, that was something that healed and was forgotten. No, he needed to be punished, he needed to…
    An evil smirk appeared on Steven’s lips. Oh yes, now he knew how he would make him pay.

    Summary

    This isn't violence, he repeated to himself for the hundredth time. Steven was his boyfriend and this was lovemaking, even if it left Nicky with finger-shaped bruises on his arms and hips, and with a backache that lasted for days. A fat tear rolled down his cheek at a particularly brutal thrust. This isn't violence.

    He wondered why it felt like it.

    Summary

    “I wouldn’t get too comfortable,” the man - Joe - said. “We won’t be here too long.”

    “I’m sorry?”

    “Just a few months, maybe a year, if that. Just to make sure you don’t do anything foolish.” he continued. “We don’t exactly stick together for too long. People will notice.”

    “You’re telling me that you’ve all been alive for centuries, but you’ve all done it separately?”

    “No. Not always.”

    “But then what, people noticed?”

    The look he gave her was answer enough.


    Considering all Nile knew about immortality was what she’d learned from the movies, she was inordinately disappointed to say that it was a bust. Now, fresh from her own murder, she’s been thrust into a life she didn’t want, and surrounded by a group of people that will call themselves anything but family. Annoyingly enough, they aren’t too forthcoming with answers. Why was she dreaming of pale hands and cold water? Where was Quynh? Who was Nicky? What happened 100 years ago?

    And most importantly: why did the three of them think it was their own fault, and what don’t they want the others to know?

    Summary

    After the events of Cat and Crown, Yusuf returns to Shams as their King. He announces that Stello Nicolo (Cat) is the rightful heir to the Mezzaluna throne and that their mission will be to see him properly crowned. Nile takes her place as Yusuf's advisor, and goes to the front lines of a war she's never seen first hand.

    It quickly becomes clear that Cat's younger brother, Merrick, has no intentions of letting him rule Mezzaluna. He sends a new army to Shams, and this one cannot be killed by ordinary means. Trapped on the wrong side of the boarder, Cat must find a way to cross through a deadly battlefield filled with soldiers who would do anything to stop his ascension, so that he can make it back to Mezzaluna and take a throne he never wanted.

    The conclusion of the Cat Chronicles
