    Summary

    Squeezing the phone between his ear and one shoulder, he lifted the fussy baby from her bassinet up against his other. She let loose another little whine, this one certainly audible on the other end of the line.  

    “Booker,” said Nile slowly, “is that a cat in the background?”

    He froze. “A cat? Yes, of course. This little lady was hanging out by the trash bins for my flat, squawking up a storm and hungry as hell. No mama to be seen, so I’ve taken her in for a couple of days.” There. It wasn’t a total lie.

     

    ---
    Or, Booker, exiled, drunk and alone, takes in an abandoned baby. He doesn’t tell anybody. He definitely doesn’t fall a little bit in love.

    Summary

    Because Nicky is a disgusting morning person, and a masochist trying to learn Gaelic, and he’s also Joe’s best friend who Joe is maybe, possibly, slightly secretly hopelessly in love with. And Joe has just invited him to share his bed for probably at least a week.

    Or, some deeply self-indulgent AU fluff wherein they're language nerds living in Edinburgh, set in that funny liminal time between Christmas and New Year.

    Summary

    Nicolo has never considered himself to be anything remotely resembling a poet. He does not have the command of words the way his Yusuf does. But when his ill-thought words nearly tear them apart, Nicolo must find the right words to bring his love back to him.

    (Not a break-up fic! FYI)
