    Summary

    ‘So, you’re Nicky, I take it? I’m Joe.’
    ‘Sorry, I don’t speak English,’ Nicky says. It’s about the only sentence he knows in English, a dubious badge of honour he nevertheless wears with pride. Or rather, he did until about five minutes ago, when Andy said there was someone she wanted him to meet. In English.
    --
    Modern AU with language barriers: Joe speaks Dutch, English, and Arabic; Nicky speaks Italian, Spanish, and German. Andy didn't know that when she introduced them, but it doesn't really matter.

    As the poets say, love finds a way.

    Summary

    Nicky never had any substantial inner turmoil over being gay, but this, this he has always hated about himself. The way even a brief interlude of intimate connection tears down all his defensive walls and leaves him raw and needy, desperate to be held, petted, cuddled close.
    _
    A fluffy bit of AU fluff in which Nicky is self-conscious about his need for cuddling, and then he meets Joe.

    Summary

    He still had a minuscule spatter of blood on his boot, he noticed while dropping his gaze for a moment to rest his eyes. His head was so heavy— did a little blood really matter? It had rusted to a brownish, dirt-like color. He could say it was dirt.

    This was New York, after all. Nobody looked at you, nobody saw, and even if they did, a bloodied shoe was far from the weirdest thing they’d seen. Nicky was too old, too tired to care.
