    It takes Nile an embarrassingly long time to realize that her thesis advisor is, like, legitimately evil.

    Summary

    Nicky has a complicated relationship with food, with faith, with love, and with happiness.

    Joe, and the rest of his family, love him regardless.

    Ft. Heavy amounts of Catholic guilt, Nicky with anxiety issues and unresolved trauma, Joe being the amazing man that he is, Andy and Quynh basically adopting them, and Nile deciding they all need therapy. And some Booker, cause he deserves love.

    Summary

    The plan goes thusly: he will find the busiest inn in all of Cairo, and he will ask for a room, and when they inevitably only have one bed to spare, he will shrug and say it can’t be helped, and then he will have Nicolò all to himself, within four safe walls. He will say, “Nicolò, you are the stars that light up my night sky,” or perhaps, “Nicolò, finding you has been like finding safe haven to one lost at sea”, and most crucially, “Nicolò, may I please kiss you?”

    The plan does not work.

    (In which Joe cannot catch a break or get a goshdarn single room at Ye Olde Holiday Inne)

    Summary

    The beautiful man drops his hands from Joe’s face instantly, and his skin feels colder without his touch.

    “I’m Nicky,” Nicky says woodenly. “I’m...I’m your familiar.”

    “I have a familiar?”

     

     

    (The last thing Joe remembers is getting drunk with his best friend Booker in a bar after a fight with his terrible boyfriend, Keane. But he wakes up in a hospital, with a gorgeous man at his bedside, telling him impossible things. Things like how he's Joe's familiar. Things like how they're married.)

    Summary

    Come down slowly, Joe thinks hysterically as he descends the ladder right into the arms of this man who, very unfortunately, smells incredibly good, just a hint of sandalwood on his skin, and feels incredibly firm and comforting against Joe as he makes sure the ladder doesn’t break while Joe’s still on it. Come down slowly, he thinks, and imagines, against his better judgment, coming down slowly next to this man in bed.

    If only his opinions on literature weren’t so wrong.

    (In which Joe is accidentally seduced into happiness by Schrödinger's hipster.)
