    Summary

    It's 1813 and the dreams of another immortal have started, prompting Andy, Joe, and Nicky to head to the Russian Empire and find their new companion. Who they find isn't anyone like they had expected.

    Le Livre is feral, cold, wants to just go home and forget it all. Yet being an immortal, twenty years grace is given before she joins them again and has to battle dreams of a drowning woman, her grief, and her complicated feelings for the rest of the team as they go through the ages into the present day.

    Exiled, Booker is left the perfect bait for another spectre of the past that won't rest. And is out for revenge.

    Summary

    Just when Joe and Nicky's worlds are beginning to mesh, when they're finally enjoying something like normalcy (as normal as life can be for the city's most beloved hero and its most notorious thief), Nicky's past comes back for him with a vengeance. With the aid of Andy, Quynh, and Nile, Booker and Joe must team up to save him, but will love be enough?

    Or: The hero and the thief. More comic tropes, more sword fighting, and a whole lot more falling in love.

    This is a sequel to fight 'til the day that i die, so you might want to read that first.

    Summary

    "Just because we keep living doesn’t mean we stop hurting."

    Sébastien le Livre died, aged 42, after being hung as a deserter from Napoléon Bonaparte's Grande Armée, shortly after crossing the Bérézina. When he came back to life, it was with dreams of people like him. Always coming back to life. No matter how often they were killed.

    How can he adjust to a life where death suddenly isn't an option anymore? Where he is bound to remain the 42 year old he is now? But more than anything, how can he learn to trust the ones like him, who claim that they know what he's going through?

    Summary

    “Tell me then,” Nicky said, all casual and nonchalant, “What do you have in mind?”

    Joe’s lips slowly curled into a smirk. “I think I would like to commit another crime.”

    Summary

    Nicolò should set up the rifle right now, make the shot, and be out of the country by lunchtime. He shouldn’t care that Joe’s eyes are a warm, deep brown, or that when he smiles the entire room lights up around him. Nico has killed beautiful people before, many of them, without blinking.

    Instead he makes a monumentally stupid decision.

    "My bad pickup line worked on you,” Joe says later at dinner. “I saw your sneer and I thought, oh, I must get that man to agree to a date with me.”

    Nico snorts. “And despite my better judgement, here we are.”

    “Oh,” Joe says, and over to touch Nico’s fingers. “I think your judgement was quite good, don’t you?”

     

    Or: Nico has a job, and that job is Joe. He just can't for the life of him figure out why anyone would want an unassuming museum curator and art restorer dead.

    Summary

    If someone else were to enter their room and switch on the lamp they would be able to gather clues as to how he and Joe spend their nights. The hand-knotted afghan rug by the balcony door is askew, and a pair of empty whiskey tumblers sit on the coffee table glittering in the light. The bed is unmade, a discarded tie looped lazily around one of the slats in the headboard, and a chair is pulled out haphazardly from the heavy wooden desk in the corner. The desk itself is littered with drawing paper and charcoal pencils and crescent moon shapes scratches into its surface. The space smells like them, like Joe, like men and sex and sleepless nights. Nicky can almost feel the phantom sting of carpet burn on his knees.

    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.

    An Old Guard, incomplete, and how they find each other again.

    The Joy of Portraiture
    4.69M subscribers

    Welcome to the official YouTube channel of Yusuf ‘Joe’ Al-Kaysani, host of "The Joy of Portraiture". You can watch every episode of The Joy of Portraiture here - happy creating!

    Historically, portraits have primarily memorialized the rich and powerful. Yusuf Al-Kaysani is an artist and art historian who wants to democratize portraiture and demystify the process behind creating them. Portraits can serve as important records and remembrances, but don’t have to be beyond anyone’s reach. In the end, it’s all about the artistic representation of people - and that can mean a lot of different things. So come learn the joy of portraiture from Joe! In each episode he not only completes a portrait while teaching tips, tricks, and techniques, but also sprinkles in tidbits of history and plenty of off-topic asides. Joe will explore different styles, mediums, and even recreate some famous works as he explains their significance. Feel free to create alongside him, or just throw an ep on in the background and vibe. You do you.

    Summary

    AU with what would happen in Nicky had been stuck in the Iron coffin and come out- and how the family *slowly* heals.

    --

    Booker had spent 250 where he had been haunted by dreams of the salt, insanity, and a dark and cold fury. He spent 250 years haunted by the spectre of Nicolo.

    Then three months into his banishment after Merrick, on a random Sunday night and drunk in Paris, he didn’t dream of sea or salt. Instead, He dreamt that he knew what it was like to breathe and not have his lungs betray him as his family had done.

    He dreamt of Nicolo.

    Nicolo was free.

    ---

    The path to forgiveness does not run smooth.
