    Summary

    Joe is having a very taxing day.

    In fairness, no one expects to begin the day by coming face-to-face with one’s lover’s estranged family, standing on the doorstep when one had been expecting the postman, or perhaps the drunk Frenchman from next door.

    Summary

    He shoves his hands into the pockets of his coat as he makes his way towards the neighborhood where Joe and his research assistant will be living for the next four months, and steadfastly tries not to think about how the contact file on his phone that used to read "Dr. Yusuf Al-Kaysani (Jerusalem)" now simply reads "Joe". Or how there is now a photo attached to that contact file, which means whenever Joe calls him Nicolò’s phone screen lights up with a selfie of Joe in a backwards baseball cap on a sunny day somewhere in Bloomsbury.

     

    In which Nicky reaches an understanding with God and leaves the priesthood for love.

    Summary

    At times, it seemed like all they did was no more than a single raindrop of hope in an ocean of despair and chaos, but together all those raindrops had evidently helped.  Copley had captured it all, the last one hundred and fifty years of their lives condensed down into a few dozen photos and newspaper clippings.  It seemed so small, and yet, all encompassing at the same time.  

    Kind of like how a declaration of love in a van during an abduction had condensed down all nine hundred and twenty years of an epic romance into a few hundred words.  It seemed an impossible feat, but then, his Yusuf was just the kind of guy to pull it off.

    Or, the stories behind the speech in the van.

    Summary

    Modern AU. Father Nicolò is on holiday in Jerusalem when he runs into Professor Al-Kaysani in a Museum. They disagree about art history and a war of words begins. There's definitely no other reason these two guys decide to start hanging. I'm bad at writing summaries. It'll get gay.

    Summary

    Nicolò di Genova was killed on one of the endless mornings of The Crusades, struck down by a scimitar. He woke again later that evening.

    Yusuf Al-Kaysani bled out hours later from wounds left by a sword. He woke again that next morning.

    A person often meets his destiny on the road he chose to avoid it.

    Alternatively, Nicky and Joe's second meeting was over 900 years too late. And neither one knows the other is immortal, or that they've already met.
