    Summary

    Joe and Nicky have moved in the same circle is friends for a few years now, yet never met. Now, with Joe backpacking through Europe in a should searching trip and Nicky struggling through med school, feeling homesick, the two meet on the most unlikely platform - Instagram.
    Nicky's profile has one nondescript photo, Joe has been relaying his and Booker's adventures and has amassed quite a following. What could possibly bring them together?

    Or, a story about instagram etiquette, love in food form, friendship, miscommunication, pining and finding your place in the world. Will meeting face to face be enough to make that ember turn into a flame or will life and each other get in the way?

    My beta said it takes them way too long to get together, but I say I there's never enough pining.

    -----

    Nile and Joe discuss faith and his beliefs, and the family decorates for Christmas.

    Summary

    In the world the movie! Old Guard characters live in, someone finds out enough about the Old Guard to write comics vaguely based on them.

    They don’t write nearly enough about Joe.

    Nicky is unimpressed, because who wouldn’t want to read a hundred million pages about his husband?

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

    The team is woken by a dream of a new immortal. He’s easy enough to track down - Nicolò di Genova, Italian, age 30 - but… he’s not exactly what they were expecting.

    “Copley,” Andy began, her voice surprisingly cool and collected. “Tell us what we’re looking at here.”

    “This is precisely why I wanted to do my due diligence,” Copley explained. “From what you’ve all told me about your pasts, I was expecting a soldier or something along those lines. But you’re looking at Father di Genova.”

    “He’s… a priest,” Joe said slowly, wide-eyed and disbelieving.

    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

    “When you first realized that you couldn’t die, did you think it was a gift or a curse?” Nile asked, looking toward him.

    “For some time, I thought it was a curse. That I had done something to anger Allah and was being punished by dying again and again. Granted, most of that feeling was due to the fact the one doing the killing was an infuriating Christian who also wouldn’t stay dead.” He gave a soft chuckle. “I think we both believed the other was sent to torture us for all eternity. Those first few weeks were very ugly.”
    ------

    Joe and Nile discuss his thoughts on immortality, his early days with Nicky, and their place in the world. Also, there's an attempt to watch Bake Off as a family that doesn't last long when two people can't keep their hands to themselves.

    Summary

    “Aha! I know just the tale,” Yusuf finally says, slapping the bed victoriously. “And I will bet it is even funnier than the one you just told.” Nicolò’s smile widens at that. Yusuf knows he can’t resist a good bet.

    “What would be the prize for winning?” Nicolò asks, lifting one brow at Yusuf who grins at him, the kind of grin that makes his eyes crinkle at the corners. Nicolò loves him desperately.

    “Suppose a kiss will do?” Yusuf asks. Nicolò pretends to think about it.

    “I suppose so… though it will have to be a good one.”

    ---

    One night, a few months after they first become lovers, Yusuf and Nicolò make a game out of which one of them can tell a funnier story about a past flame. However, the mood of their evening changes as Nicolò slowly notices that the story Yusuf starts telling is much darker than he seems to realize himself.

    Summary

    “How can you think you’re not wanted with us?”

    Andy’s blue eyes were full of compassion, boring into Booker’s, chiselling away at the wall of self-loathing he’d built around himself many moons ago. Unable to keep from gazing into them, finding himself compelled to speak by the sincerity that filled every line in the face that he still cradled, Booker replied.

    “I just get too into my head sometimes,” he whispered, feeling wildly inadequate. “I forget.”

    There was something magnetic about Booker when he was like this; his fragility and uncertainty at odds with his steadfast, overwhelming physical presence. Andy found herself being drawn to him, wrapping her fingers around the wrists of the hands that held her face so tenderly.

    “Maybe you need reminding,” she intoned, softly.

    *****

    After Andy hauls Booker out of the jungle of Guyana in the 1970s, she tries to remind him of what he thought he was missing...
