    Summary

    Just above his eyeline, in dark purple Sharpie, is an addition so recent the ink is still a little wet.

    For a good time, call Nicky. Ask him about eating sushi with a fork.
     
    Underneath it is a phone number.

    Joe isn’t sure how long he stands there, staring at the words, before he says, out loud, “Is... is that a euphemism?”

    Summary

    "Wait, hold up a sec. So if you were around before them -- how old are you?"

    The men all go quiet, and Nile wonders if she's just committed some kind of immortal faux pas. "It is irrelevant," Quỳnh finally says. "Old enough to know there is no point looking backwards."

    "You're the oldest," Nile murmurs in awe. Older than the Crusades. How much older? A few hundred years more? A thousand?

    "No," Nicky says quietly. "Not the oldest."

    Canon-divergent AU. Five hundred years ago, they lost Andromache to the sea. Now Quỳnh leads the team, a new immortal just woke up, and some pharmaceutical company is getting a little too interested in their business.

    Summary

    “Joe didn’t lie back in that lab,” Booker tells him gently. “I am selfish. I am a liar. But beyond everything else, Nicky, I’m a coward.”

    “Really,” says Nicky, looking unimpressed.

    [Booker tries to save his family from Quynh. He's rather good at it, if not a little dramatic about the entire process. In the meantime, he learns a little more about himself, his family, and the definitions of bravery, forgiveness and love.]

    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.

    Summary

    “Booker,” Andy says, her voice taking no shit. That tone always says ‘if you have a comm and a working mouth, you’d better answer me,’ but this time, he also hears the panicked, ‘get to Nicky now.’

    -or-

    On a mission in the early 2000s, Booker tries to provide comfort while Nicky revives and heals a major injury.
