    Summary

    You find your youngest son in the marshes up to his knees when he’s eight, up to his thighs when he’s ten. You weep in the night for him each time, tears silently streaming down your face as your husband sleeps next to you, blissfully unaware.

    When your son is a lanky thirteen, you find him up to his waist. It takes an hour before his dull eyes clear and sparkle like they’re supposed to.

    That night, when the moon is full and high in the sky, you slip out of bed and walk to the edge of the marsh to run your hands through the wild rushes.

    “Please,” you ask aloud. “Please,” you beg. “He’s my dear, sweet boy, please don’t take him.”

    The night is still and calm as you hold your breath and wait. When the wind finally stirs, it whispers “ras el-’alqa.”

    You fall to your knees and weep.

    Summary

    Written for a kinkmeme prompt which said:

    Joe and Nicky cut each other's hair! Nicky's really good at it, and Joe always looks like a snack! Joe, however, isn't so great. Nicky always comes out looking like a dad. A hot dad! But a dad.

    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.
