    “I thought it was the end.”
    “Not yet,” says Nicolò. He’s smiling again, his eyes alight. “You won’t die today, brother.”

    Summary

    This is an analysis of the speech patterns of the main characters in The Old Guard. I’ve focused on syntax, although I’ve also looked at pragmatics and semantics, as well as sociolinguistics to a smaller extent. For each of the characters I’ve talked about contraction usage, colloquialisms, phrases, verb and verb tense usage, ellipses, sentence composition, adjective and adverb frequency, discourse markers and fillers, profanity, vocabulary(ish), and questions.

    This is a language no one else in the world is fluent in: the glint in Nicky’s eye, the unbearable gentleness with which he pushes Yusuf flat against the bed.

    Summary

    “What are you doing?” he mouthed into Nicky’s thigh.

    “Watching you sleep.”

    “What else are you doing?”

    “Rewriting King Lear,” Nicky said. His voice was plagued with distraction. Joe pulled himself up enough to see the page; Act II ran red with slashed words. His lover’s eyes were the color of the sky just before a tornado touched down.

    Summary

    At over seven-hundred and fifty, he fears he has started to forget what mortality feels like. He sees death everywhere he goes, in all forms. Sometimes it is natural, predicted. Sometimes it is merciful, and sometimes it is violent and cruel. Almost never does it exist in the realm of the unknown.
    Where do people go when they vanish? How long must they be gone before others declare them dead?
    To vanish as a mortal is to surrender to a death sentence, it seems. People do not vanish. They die.
    Where does that leave his family, if they defy death?

    Or:

    In winter, 1832, Nicolas and Sébastien are hired to guard a family of fur traders as they make their voyage to Alaska, when disasters occur and they become lost in the wilderness. Nicolas finds a letter from Yusuf telling of Sébastien's wife's sudden death and he must swear to keep it a secret while he navigates their way back to their family, against the elements and the fragility of the human mind.

    Summary

    “And I just…” Joe says, scratching the side of his head with his pen. “I can’t help but think, what- what if Booker was right?”

    “In what way?”

    "What if we made everything more difficult for him? And what’s more, what if… fuck. I don’t know. What if we’re going to make it harder on Nile, too? Maybe without even realizing?”


    In which some people have Big Thoughts.

    Summary

    It had seemed like a good idea at first, subscribing to the newly established "Zabini's Floo Matchmaking and Dating Service" that had recently taken the Wizarding community by storm. No face, no name, no strings attached. Just him and a lovely pair of legs sticking out from the other side of the network.

    No strings attached indeed. That is, until Harry gets constantly paired up with the man with the snake tattoo on his bum.

    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

    To be fair, Joe did know there were some things Nicky wasn’t quite telling him. But it didn’t matter to him who Nicky’s ancestors had been. What mattered was Nicky, who was kind, and thoughtful, and relentlessly committed to doing the right thing, including his share of the dishes. Really, what else did you need to know that someone was a keeper?

    The thing was, Nile absolutely trusted Nicky with her life. He was ride or die. He’d made her feel safe and welcome from the night they met. 

    He also made her feel intensely awkward, because she had no idea how to interact with him.

    Summary

    “Alien…aphrodisiac.” James blinks and takes a few deep breaths, absorbing the information to scratch his head over later. Steve’s the priority now. “At least tell me he didn’t leap into the path of the alien whatever.”

    The Widow laughs. It’s half for show, James knows, but he thinks he can see genuine amusement in her cool green eyes. Steve’s better at reading her, but Steve’s apparently busy rubbing one out in the bathroom.

    “Not this time,” she says. “It’s not a weapon. One of the scientists grabbed the first thing they could in a panic. Steve was the only one in the room with them and got a faceful of blue dust. The effects took a couple of hours to show.”

    “And the scientist who used it?”

    “Was trying to fuck a wall, last I saw.”

    James grimaces.

    “It’s not very dignified,” the Widow adds, noting his expression. “Like I said, either the serum’s handling the worst of it, or Steve’s real superpower is his moral compass.”

    Steve gets sex-pollened. He handles it just fine, and then Bucky shows up.
