    Summary

    She bows her head and sinks down to one knee on the floor, waiting until the Leader indicates before she rises. “I believe I have a case.”

    “Of what sort?”

    “I am nearly certain. Although of course I cannot be entirely certain, until they are tested.”

    “A case of what, Qael?” he asks again, sounding tired already. He, or so she has heard, is intolerant of subterfuge.

    She opens her hand, brushing her thumb lightly over the glistening surface of the Portec. Brilliant images burst forth from it and she steps closer at his long-fingered beckoning.

    “Soulmates."

    //
    Rather than star-crossed lovers destined to be together for eternity, in this story soulmates are what happens when a soul mutates and splits, and in the two halves trying desperately to find each other again, irreparable harm can be caused to the fabric of the universe. When a pair of soul halves are discovered, the Time Keepers are in charge of restoring order.

    Summary

    “I’m not going to pay you for sex,” Nicky says, flatly, as certain parts of his anatomy scream at him in protest. His brain is sure of that decision. Other appendages are decidedly less so.

    “How about you let me kiss you.” The man reaches out and picks up Nicky’s pale blue tie, folding it between deft, elegant fingers. Nicky doesn’t know when he got in so close. He’s suddenly a foot away from the man without remembering moving in. “Just for fun. No charge.”

    Summary

    In 1099, Yusuf and Nicolò meet during the siege of Jerusalem, as they drive their swords through each other and awaken when they shouldn't. In 2020, Joe and Nicky snuggle happily on a beach in Genoa, ignored by the strangers surrounding them and the sun setting across the water. In between, they see the passing of eleven centuries. They live through wars, earthquakes, pandemics, art movements, the age of explorers, devastating loss, political revolution, new family members, and gay nightclubs. With them all along is a love that transcends time and space; that settles heavily into their souls and exists regardless of when or where they are. Years pass, one era fades into another, and no matter what happens they always, always choose each other. Perpetually.

    Summary

    “You know why,” Nicolò says shakily.

    Yusuf shakes his head and creeps ever closer. “No, I do not. I only know you said you loved me as I love you but that we could never be together. That isn’t a reason, Nicolò, only a flimsy excuse.”

    ~~~~~
    In which Nicolò thinks he doesn't deserve to be loved and forgiven and Yusuf proves he's wrong.

    Summary

    “Got a light, soldier?”

    Joe looks over. For half a second there is a question in the twist of his forehead but then he gets it. His whole body changes. Arms relax on the table, posture slackens, confidence oozes from him so thick Nicky can practically taste it. He brings the cigarette held between his elegant fingers to his lips, drawing Nicky’s gaze to them.

    “Feel free,” he says, flitting his eyes down for a second to the glowing end of the cigarette.

    Could I possibly resist writing a little scene based on that new comic cover where they're at a queer bar in interwar Berlin? Absolutely not.
