    Summary

    Nicky is a rational man.

    He makes decisions slowly, with pro-con lists and peace and quiet.

    This does not account for the fact that, having run into the bane of his existence, Dr. Al-Kaysani the trauma surgeon, at his favorite bar on the tail end of a shift that ran five hours too long, Nicky ended up inviting him over for coffee and blowing him against the closed door of his apartment.

    Summary

    Lan Qiren sets down his tea cup.

    The point is, that awful boy had married his nephew, and it was one thing for him to complain about him and all the terrible things he did, like breathing wrong, but quite another for this little rodent of the Su clan -- who were, to begin with, an inferior cadet branch of the Lan clan -- to say something about it.

    Summary

    As the autumn of 1812 fades into winter, the only three immortals dwelling in the world navigate life in Berlin under Napoleon’s occupation. But the birth of a new immortal is an event so momentous that it will tear their carefully constructed reality apart and send them on a thousand-mile journey into frozen, devastated Russia. Attempting to find one lost French soldier with only dreams to guide them, while avoiding the predations of Napoleon’s retreat, Nico and Josef and Andromache must draw on all of their spiritual and material resources, knowing that this journey will change their lives forever.

    Summary

    In which Yusuf is a witch, striking out on his own and looking to make his way in the world -- what he finds instead is a very peculiar rabbit, desperately in need of his help. Destiny might have brought them together, for reasons not entirely clear, but Yusuf isn't going to abandon a soul in distress -- especially if he has the ability to do something about it. (And if he happens to fall in love along the way, well... who is he to deny his own heart?)

    Summary

    There eventually comes a lull, and so they go to Malta.

    It took nearly two years of taking sacrament, preaching guidance to anyone who wanted it (or didn't), and righteously killing as many usurpers as possible before Nicky could confidently say he belonged to God and God alone. It took two days spent glutted on pastry and Joe's cock to make him take it all back.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.

    Summary

    Between her sons, Yusuf had been the fighter. He had been her bright star as a child, racing through the house, excited about everything he learned. He’d learned swordplay like it was a science; learned science like it was poetry; learned poetry like it was breathing. Ibrahim had been her steady pair of hands, hiding behind his brother when strangers knocked on the door, handing her spices while she cooked, always the voice of reason to back up his brother’s verses.

    He leaves an empty, carved-out space in their home, and in his place, Yusuf has brought home a ghost.

    OR: Yusuf's mother meets Nicky.

    Summary

    That is not to say he isn’t afraid, there is still so much he does not understand about himself and Yusuf and God, the way his skin knits itself back together. Why is it him that is gifted such a thing when there were better men out there who deserved it?

    Here, tied to Yusuf in a dirty cell, yet stuck in a pleasant and comforting half-sleep, he is of the mind that maybe this is why. God wants him to spend eternity with this man, chasing raiders off from villages, and in the night curling around each other barely touching but loving one another just the same. Waiting until the day Nicolo finally gathers the courage to touch his companion purposefully and then maybe at that moment, mankind discovers heaven.

    Summary

    “Only four of you will pass into the heart of a Jaeger,” she says, voice clean and cold as stone. “And even then, the chances are that three of you will not live to see the next year. Do with that what you will.”

    Andy stops before Joe, meets his eyes and does not flinch.

    “But don’t you dare not give this fight anything less than your all,” she says.

    From beyond her shoulder is Nicky, his face blank, so far removed from the feral fighting thing Joe tangled swords with last night. His impassivity bites through the bone of Joe more than anything ever has, or ever will.

    The lightning-bright blood of a kaiju is child’s play to the fight in his eyes and this, not the beasts from the electric deep, will be my undoing.

    Summary

    “You know, you don’t always have to wait for me to wake up.”

    Nico shakes his head. “I don’t mind. Don't like to wake you if I don’t have to.”

    “So don’t do that either,” Yusuf suggests with a brief one-shouldered shrug. “Just enjoy yourself. And then tell me about it when I’m awake.”

    That brings Nico up short, and he pushes up on both elbows to look Yusuf square in the face. “You mean touching myself? Or…?”

    Yusuf leans in and kisses the corner of Nico’s mouth, hand moving slow and steady over the hard length of him. “You know you can do anything you want to me, my heart.”

    Inspired by a kink meme prompt. Joe has a tendency to wake up slowly. Nicky has a tendency to wake up horny. They work out a compromise.

    Summary

    Nicolo is crimson by this point, but still smiling as he shakes his head. “You, good sir, are a shameless flatterer.”

    “I prefer the term ‘romantic’,” Yusuf says. “And the only shame would be if you were to think my words are not sincere.”

    Summary

    Joe takes the last watch, sitting by the fire, eyes trained on the stars as he listens for intrusion. None comes. He is left in peace to reacquaint himself with Al-Dubb Ak-Bar, Al-Hamal, Ad-Dulfin, and to think of their names in other tongues—The Plough, Aries, Delphinius. As they stretch over and above him, shifting as though some great wind blows them to a new course across the sky, he smiles and thinks of Malta. Such stars that night.

    Summary

    The first time, they do not kiss.

    Yusuf does not know if a man like Nicolò even wants to be kissed. He understands the moonlight-pale stares from across the fire, understands the hesitant touch on the inside of his thigh that sparked this, but still, they do not kiss.

    It’s been six years since they’ve met, a year since they’ve last tried killing each other, and Yusuf refuses to wait any longer.

    Summary

    In the off season, the team acquires Nicky for draft picks and pocket change. There’s rumors he requested it, furious with the way the season ended and with the front office leaking his injuries. Twitter won’t stop laughing about how this means the end of a glorious rivalry, posting endless threads of Joe and Nicky going at each other, spinning in circles, yelling in Italian. Joe calls Andy and begs her to run interference, but come Media Day he’s gritting his teeth and suffering through eight hours of pretending Nicky’s his new best friend for the cameras. Even hockey fights dot com knows better than that.


    They got Quynh in the middle of the season, the blowout season Andy became Captain. They lose her in the middle of a season too, the season Nicky and Joe do their dance. That’s how it goes sometimes. The show goes on.

    Summary

    Booker has been a grieving alpha for longer than he can remember and his ruts have been mild, if not non-existent, since the death of his wife. But it's the turn of the century and his body is coming alive again... which would be fine if he could stop himself from constantly challenging Joe for Nicky.
