    Summary

    “I failed him once.  Fucking spectacularly, for two hundred years.  I’ll be damned if I do it again.”  The pain of hundreds of years of failing another shines out of Andy's blue-green eyes.  “I can’t lose another one.  Not one we could save.  Booker can’t come back from this.  Not on his own.  Not without…”

    His family.

    Summary

    “I think there are things we don’t know about each other, that are dangerous,” Nicky said. “This isn’t done.” He gestured to the distance between them, how they’d managed to keep speaking in some kind of peace.

    Joe walked further into the field of flowers. When his hands brushed the petals they curled into him as worshipers would, kissing at his skin for warmth, for light and the greed of the sun’s brilliance. The dew hissed away into the air. Then they were only a length apart.

    “I think it’s about time we reevaluate what’s done,” Joe declared. He held out his palm, skin a lovely brown, and Nicky swore he could see the blood in his veins, leaking gold.

    “How about we do what we want?”

    Oh what sweet seduction, what dashing defiance.

    He took Joe’s hand, and the sky above them burst into color.

    Summary

    “I’ve had a beard since I could grow one. It feels strange without it now,” Yusuf gripes, rubbing his hand slowly across his face. He flaps his hand as he moves it away. “Well, it’s gone now, at any rate. What do you think?”

    Nicolò looks over at him, the fading light painting Yusuf in beautiful dull oranges, and freezes. Yusuf is looking at him expectantly, eyebrow slightly raised, a small smile curling at his lips.

    A small smile that’s making his dimples stand out. Because apparently Yusuf has *dimples.*

    Summary

    In over nine hundred years walking this earth Nicky had come up against precisely one obstacle guaranteed to break his concentration. And that obstacle was, at present, standing before him in the kitchen, wearing the smallest, tightest pair of blue running shorts Nicky had ever seen. His brain fizzed as Joe came closer.

    In which Joe is an incurable romantic who uses flirting as foreplay, and Nicky gives as good as he gets.

    Summary

    “I have told you before that Joe writes poetry, yes?”

    “Yeah,” Nile says. “I mean, you didn’t need to tell me, that man sprouts metaphors out of his ass, but, yeah, you mentioned it. Why?”

    “Well.” There’s a little click as the metal lid of the box unlocks. “Joe has written a lot of poetry, over the last nine hundred years, and he can’t travel with all of it. Hence —” With a wrenching, too-hard tug, Nicky manages to get the lid of the metal box free. “This.”

    -

    Nicky and Joe take Nile to one of their old safehouses where some of Joe's poetry is stored.

    Summary

    Exhausted, nearly propping his eyes open with his fingers to stay awake, Joe takes the time to do one last thing: He sends an email overflowing with gratitude to the owner of the food blog who has saved his life these last few weeks. By the time he realises he forgot to sign his name, Joe has already started to drool onto his pillow.

     

    Andy and Quynh’s engagement party is full of fond memories for Joe; it’s where he met the man who might be the love of his life, and thanks to a helpful food blog, it’s the event that finally taught him to cook. Now if only the owner of that blog wasn’t such a jerk...

    Summary

    Yusuf tried to look soulful and romantic, like he was afflicted by destiny. Nicolo was a much better liar than he was, but in a typical fashion, he was nowhere to be seen now that Yusuf actually needed him.

    “We have been lovers for many years,” Yusuf said, looking determinedly at Afan’s nose to keep himself from laughing. “We must face danger together.”

    Summary

    Nicolo's heart beats against his ribs like a trapped bird as he presses his mouth to Yusuf's. He's never kissed anyone before, and at first he's afraid that he'll do something wrong, that his inexperience will be painfully obvious. Then Yusuf brings one hand up to cup Nicolo's face, leaning in to kiss him back, and Nicolo forgets to be afraid of anything.

    Summary

    Over the next few months, Joe runs into Nicky every so often at the farmer’s market. Some weekends Nicky doesn’t make it, because of his work schedule - Joe doesn’t understand it because he doesn’t ask, though he does start to recognize when one of those missing weekends is coming up because Nicky will stock up on things with longer shelf-life. When they do run into each other, they make small talk and move through the stalls together.

    Joe doesn’t mention it to Lykon when he stops by, because it is kind of weird, that Lykon’s ex-boyfriend texts Joe things like - If you’re here, the apples look particularly good this week and thank you for that recipe, I did not know what I was going to do with that much couscous

    Or,

    Joe wouldn't usually consider starting anything with his best friend's ex, but as long as they keep it casual, it shouldn't be weird... right?

    Summary

    Prompt fill for this prompt at The Old Guard Kink Meme:

    Joe falls in love easily and it's brought him a lot more disappointment than happiness. The people he falls for might be nice in the beginning, but once the honeymoon period is over it seems like they always find something to criticize. So after a string of relationships that always seem to end with his partners being critical of things that make Joe who he is, Joe comes into his 30s convinced he'll never settle down happily.

    Then he meets Nicky, who seems to be genuinely nice and always says the nicest things about Joe's art. Joe has gotten his heart broken too many times to be willing to give this a chance, but over the course of many months and Nicky proving him wrong time and time again, Joe slowly starts to think his love life might not be a lost cause after all.

    "So this is what my boss meant when she said we must have so much in common," Joe says.

    "Yeah, probably," Nicky sighs. "It's...I just remember back when I was in school and there was only one other boy in my year who'd come out—"

    "—and everyone assumed that of course you must be into each other," Joe agrees ruefully. "Because you were the two gay kids."

    The one where Nicky and Joe make a pact not to sleep together and fuck up the friendship. So, you know, that works out well.

    Finally, nearing the bottom of the notifications, Joe spots a new commenter. He gets a handful of new followers most days, but they usually either lurk or have been commenting for ages already. This guy isn’t a new follower, and Joe hasn’t seen him comment before. A quick glance at his profile shows that he is following Joe, and has been for a while - he likes almost everything Joe posts. He’s never said anything before, though.

    This guy, @dj_nova, has commented, Excuse me, is that a quote from Inferno? below Joe’s deadlift video.

    “Yes!” Joe cries out, sitting up in bed.

    OR: The one where Instagram fitness and lifestyle thirst trap Joe Al-Kaysani has a problem in that he becomes incredibly tongue-tied around a very cute barista at his favorite café even though he really wants to discuss medieval poetry with him.

    Summary

    An involuntary shudder runs down Nicky’s spine. He’d been doing so well. So well. The problem, of course, is that Nicky, like all people, has weaknesses, and articulate confidence is one of them. Perhaps that accounts for what he says next.

    “Prove it.”
