  4. Summary

    This is a collection of self-indulgent fragments from a sleep-deprived brain, because headcanon and crossovers are really the healthiest things to be overthinking at 4 am.
    That said, if anyone wants to take anything that appears here and run with it, just make sure to let me know so I can read it.

    Summary

    Hooray! You've made a podfic! But now, how do you share it? Posting to tumblr, youtube, or a fandom-specific community are all decent options. But chances are, if the fic you recorded is from AO3, you'll reach the largest and most receptive audience by also posting to AO3.

    The archive welcomes all types of fanwork, but is structured and built primarily for written works. Posting podfic can be confusing or complicated if you're unfamiliar with it. This guide will cover both the basic mechanics of posting podfic to AO3, as well as the typical conventions used by the podfic community to help your audio be found by people who want to listen.

    Summary

    The plan goes thusly: he will find the busiest inn in all of Cairo, and he will ask for a room, and when they inevitably only have one bed to spare, he will shrug and say it can’t be helped, and then he will have Nicolò all to himself, within four safe walls. He will say, “Nicolò, you are the stars that light up my night sky,” or perhaps, “Nicolò, finding you has been like finding safe haven to one lost at sea”, and most crucially, “Nicolò, may I please kiss you?”

    The plan does not work.

    (In which Joe cannot catch a break or get a goshdarn single room at Ye Olde Holiday Inne)

    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

    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.
